On A Personal Note....

Happy Football Sunday!! I'm currently watching NFL Red Zone as I type. I was going to do a fashion post today but something was tugging at me to do a personal post. The other day I was just looking at my son and I'm just amazed at the little life I helped bring into the world. I can't believe he's 4 already and growing up so much. He's in preschool now and will be in kindergarten before I know it. It's just amazing how I can love someone so much like this. When I first found out I was carrying him, I was scared at first but the more I got to hear his heartbeat, see him through Sonograms, feel him kicking and moving, I grew more and more in love. I couldn't wait for the day I saw his little face and I just instantly fell in love the moment I laid eyes on him. Of course I was wondering what to do now, how to raise him, will he turn out to be a good person? All those things still wonder in my mind but everyday with him has been amazing. Yes we have our days were I'm asked 50 million questions, hear Mommy every 5 seconds and want to lose it because he's not listening but looking at that cute face and hearing him say "I love you Mommy" just melts my heart. I love watching him grow and learn things everyday. I just never imagined having a child would make you feel like this and it is an amazing feeling. I understand what my parents felt when I was born and raising me. I understand how important it is to be there in your child's life, at every concert and school event. I loved going to his seasonal concerts and enjoying Muffins With Mommy for Mother's Day. I just sometimes can't get over that I'm someones Mommy and that is my title now lol. It seems like people only want to see your kid, not you anymore. I'm enjoying this journey and hope to have one or two more in the future without the morning sickness and swelling please lol. I just wanted to gush about my son, he's just amazing and I love him so much!

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…
