On a personal note...Father's Day

Dad is always that one man that will always be in your life. Other men come and go but he is there in your life forever. My dad is another person who had a lot of influence over me and taught me a lot of things. It was crazy when I started to get an allowance, he had me tracking my finances. I'm thinking "What do I need this for? All I buy is candy and barbie stuff!!" But it was a valuable lesson I needed to learn and I'm grateful for that. I knew how to put money away to save and track how much I was spending. I was able to save over $4000 for my first car which I couldn't believe that I did. He was always reading to me and teaching me things about life and how to survive in the real world. I can be shy sometimes but I remember my dad would always send me into the fast food restaurant to order our food. I used to hate going inside but it taught me how to talk to people and not be so shy. I didn't understand why at that time but I do now. I guess that's the thing with parents. They teach you things they know you will need in life. They know you won't understand it at first but know you will need it in life. My dad really stressed the importance of a good education and to strive for success. He wanted me to successful and great at whatever I was destined to do in life. He was always there for support and someone to talk to. He also taught me that I needed to be independent and stand on my own but if I needed help, not be afraid to ask for it. He stressed the importance of just always learning new things and challenging yourself. My dad loves being a grandfather, its a new role he has taken on. My son has another male figure to look up to because I always admired my dad. He always worked hard to provide for his family and be there. I thank my dad for all the lessons he has taught me, I'm still learning some of them but I'm grateful for the knowledge I have.

Another father that is special is my boyfriend. He has taken this father role and ran with it. I love watching him interact with our son. My son is always talking about daddy and loves guy time. He is setting such a good example for our son and I'm glad that he is in our life. I couldn't of asked for a better father for my child. I know when we decide to have more, they are going to love him just like he is so loved now. We both stepped into parenthood not knowing what to expect and we are doing a really good job. They do say that boys are Mommas boys but I think he's Daddy's Boy more. Daddy is his best friend and I'm just Mommy lol!

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there!! Hope you enjoy your day!!

Happily Ever Johnson: 3 Months To Go!

*Que screaming and running around like a crazy person*  I can't believe we are three months away from the big day!! It seems like yesterday we just got engaged and started making plans and now it is almost here. I'm not freaking out yet (Lies, I am on the inside lol). I just want to make sure we don't forget anything lol. It seems like it is so easy to forget something when just about everything is going on. I'm getting into the swing of things in my new position and most of my focus seems to be there at the moment but I'm making sure to keep up with everything. I recently met with my coordinators (aka My mom,aunts and cousins) to preview the centerpieces. I'm so thankful for them stepping in and helping with the decor and planning. I'll give you guys a sneak peek at the centerpieces but you won't see the full effect of everything until after the big day.

Of course I drew my inspiration from Pinterest. I have spent so many hours on there and found so m…

Spring Fashion Trends

For many years I would say that I'm going to NYFW and then forget when it is lol! One day I'm going to make it there lol! Speaking of fashion, today I'm going to share a few Spring Fashion trends that I will most likely be wearing this season. (Images taken from the web)
Vibrant Stripes
I love wearing bright and bold colors when it gets warmer outside. This trend is super fun and such a statement. You can wear this in the office with a bold striped button up or out on the town with a maxi dress. 

One Shoulder
I really think this trend is super cute and flirty. I have seen many versions of the one should trend over the years and this one seems to be my favorite. I would probably wear this with a top or dress. 

Slogan T-Shirts
I know these have been around forever and this trend to me will never go out of style. There are so many slogans out there, it is hard to keep up with all of them. I do have a few myself and I love how you can dress them up or down.

This is anothe…
