Friday Favorites: On A Personal Note....

Happy Friday! I'm so glad the weekend is finally here!! I haven't done a post in this series in a while and I see that I'm starting to get away from that. Yes this blog is all about the things that I love and obsessed about but I need to be in the mix too. I remember my cousin telling me that he felt I was hiding behind my post. I didn't understand what he was talking about for a while until I read through here one day. It was all reviews and favorites but nothing about me. You all have been so open and accepting of my personal side and it means a lot to me! I can't believe this blog is coming up on two years already. I think I have been making the progress that I wanted and looking forward to what next year holds.

Life for me has been so hectic lately. I almost drove myself a little crazy trying to figure out how other people juggle everything. I am really loving my new location and it keeps me very busy everyday. After work, it is the demands of motherhood and a relationship on top of being a grad student and blogger. It felt like there wasn't enough time in the day for everything. I really wanted to coach cheerleading again this season but it looks like I can't and it kind of makes me sad. I really loved doing it last season but I know I can't do everything. It feels like I want to do it all but where am I going to find the time?? I know things will work out when they are supposed to. I have just been up and down with stuff and my emotions lately for some reason. One of my coworkers pointed out that you can tell when I'm feeling a certain way because I do tend to wear my emotions on my sleeves. I'm working on that, I know I don't smile a lot. I can pull that off so well in photos but don't know why I don't do so in real person. I am working on that too. I just feel like I'm working on so much but it will all be worth it!

What are your plans for this weekend? Anything fun? Enjoy the weekend and see you guys for Sunday Fashions!

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…
