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:Tastings and Things

The countdown to this wedding is getting real. April is around the corner and the big day will be here soon! I have starting stressing about the small details and hoping we have everything. We got to do the fun stuff recently, food tasting! I know that was the thing we were both looking forward to. We first had our food tasting at the venue. You were able to bring family members to the tasting and you got to experience the full service during the reception and everything on the menu. I liked that everyone was given a paper with a description of all the menu items so you knew what you were eating and take notes about each dish. I found it helpful to have some other people with us so you got an idea of what the majority of guest would like and different opinions about each dish. We narrowed down what dishes we wanted on our menu and they were all so good!

My son was super exciting to do the cake tasting with us! He just wanted lemon cake and wanted us to have lemon…

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…

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…
