On a personal note.....

Happy Sunday loves!! Anyone having a Superbowl party or going to one? I will be watching the game but not going to a party. I haven't done a post in this series in a while and just want to talk to you guys. It seems like a light finally went off in my head and I got it. really pushed myself and workout out for a whole month and it felt great. I'm starting to see some great changes with my body and I'm going to continue to keep going. I feel so determined and motivated now and wondered what happened. I guess I wasn't ready for what is about to come in my life. I've learned to stop dwelling in the past and stop wondering what should of happened and what could of happened. I'm looking forward and not turning back anymore. I've learned to stop looking at what other people have that I don't, it's just not my time to have it. I know things I really want in life will come when I'm ready for it. I'm really working on my resume, applying for jobs like crazy and just waiting to hear "You got the job". I know it is coming soon. I made the decision to go back to school and get my masters and figuring out what career path is right for me. I just feel like I've been changing so much and I never gave up. Things may seem so crazy in this world and in life but you should always keep going and not give up. Never give up on your dreams, always go for what you want. I'm so thankful for those who believe in me and always support everything I do. My cousin gave me a camera he was no longer using so I can record better videos and my boyfriend got me tripod for the camera. I have found so much research on how to make this blog better and I want to succeed at blogging. The other day, another blog called Brown Girl Bloggers started following me on Twitter and when I went to their site, I was on there all day. They had so much information and things I never knew about. I learned so much and registered to be apart of their community. I took a chance and started putting some of my videos on You Tube and now have 21 subscribers. I just want to encourage you to just keep moving towards your goals and never give up. Things always get better in life, you just have to have faith and believe in yourself. Hope you have a great week, enjoy the Superbowl and see you Tuesday!!!

Book Review: Dreams Are Built Overnight

Can't believe my birthday is next week, next Monday to be exact! I just want to have a nice, relaxing day. Today I am bringing you another book review (I know, two in one week lol)!

I have to say, I really proud of this guy and everything that he is doing now. I actually went to elementary school with David and he was a pretty cool person(and still is lol). Before this book, he started a company called Sleep Is 4 Suckers which sells apparel with a message behind it. David also expanded into motivational speaking and is a pretty dynamic speaker. I really wanted to support him and read this book because I was really drawn to the title of it.

I honestly did not want to put this book down when I started reading it. I read this book every free moment I had because I really wanted this information to sink in. You can really visualize what David is saying in this book and really picture the message he sharing. He really does drop a lot of amazing knowledge, tips and advice in this book.

Happily Ever Johnson: Registries, Rings and Things

It is crazy how fast this wedding is approaching! I can't believe it is almost February and June will be here before we know it! We have done so much with wedding planning and trying to make sure we have everything covered. First we started with finishing our registries. We started them but it just didn't feel complete. Earlier this month we attended a Sip and Scan event at Macy's. They had representatives from different brands such as Mikasa, Kitchen Aid and All Clad to answer any questions about products and to help you pick out the things you would like to put on your registry. They had a DJ there, passed hors o'derves and mocktails.

Here we are with the scanner having registry fun lol

We didn't have our formal or everyday dinnerware on the registry and finally picked those out. It was hard trying to decide what to go with. For everyday, I was looking for something that was durable since we have a 5 year old and dishware that was going to last. For our formal di…
