On A Personal Note.....

Happy Sunday! Fall weather is really here and I'm loving it! I was just inspired to write this from some things that happened at my job. I come across a lot of people and it just bothers me sometimes that they are so impatient. They try to rush a lot things that need time to happen. It made me think of how I used to be. I was so impatient and wanted things to happen when I wanted them to. I would get so frustrated about things and it took me a little bit to realize I needed to be patient and learn to wait. Like the saying goes, good things come to those who wait and that is very true. I had to learn the hard way that things will fall into place when they are supposed to and it is okay to wait for things to happen. Sometimes you can't help but get excited and want things right away but it is so worth it when it comes at the right time. I just want to say to those of you reading this that everything will fall into place when it is the right time and will be worth waiting for. Life is too short to rush through everything, take your time and smell the roses. I am so glad that I learned to be patient and wait on things to come. It is the best feeling in the world when what you have been waiting for happens at the right place and time. I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend, see you guys Thursday!!

  1. So true! I still struggle with having patients, I want things to happen like yesterday, even though I know that things will happen when they are supposed to happen and not before. Fantastic post Andrea!

    1. Thanks Keisha. I'm always in a rush myself but it is good to slow down and wait for thing to happen. Thanks for reading!

  2. i think part of it too is our society--we need everything fast. now info, food, everything is available super-fast. i remember the card catalog days in the library. now it takes seconds.

    1. That is very true Elle. It seems like everything new that comes out is supposed to be faster than the previous one. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Thanks for the reminder love! Being patient is one I learned from taking care of my fur babies and doing some meditation - definitely great for my blood pressure hehehe!

    1. I need to meditate some mornings before my son gets up and I get my day started. You are welcome Jackie and thanks for reading!

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…

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.
