On a personal note.......

Happy Thursday!! I hope everyone enjoyed the holiday weekend! I had fun with family and friends and just enjoyed being off work for a nice long weekend. Now it seems like everyone is getting ready for Christmas and 2016 will be here before we know it. I debated on doing a post on this but I kept thinking about it so I decided why not. Last month I went to a party with one of my best friends. We had fun laughing, joking and dancing to good music. It was great to get out because both of us have kids and we haven't been out in a while. So as the party goes on and people start filtering in, we started to get approached by guys. Now this one guy came over to dance and it's a party, you're supposed to dance. So the guy asks what my name is and if I have someone. I answered that yes I have someone. He's like No, I'm playing and I'm like I'm serious, no games here. Then he said something that made me stop and look at him like he was crazy. He said "Well, take down my number so I can be an option". I had to stop and think about what this dude said. Why would you want to be an option aka side dude? Wouldn't you want to be with someone that is completely yours? I respect my relationship and sometimes don't understand why others don't? So most of the night this guy kept finding me and trying so hard to convince me that I needed to give him my number and it was getting so annoying after a while. There were plenty of other females at this party that were most likely single and he was chasing me. My friend and I left the party early so I could avoid that dude when the party let out. What he said and how he was acting really stuck and I just couldn't get why he didn't respect my relationship, Why is it okay for me to step outside my relationship to talk to you. If I did leave my guy for you, I know he wouldn't like it if I did the same thing to him. I honestly don't think people think of these things. It seems like television heavily influences affairs and it being okay to be the side piece. It seems like people really don't value if someone is in a relationship or not. When did it be okay to be number 2? When did it become normal in a way? Even if I was single, that is such a turn off. If I don't want to talk to you or not interested, respect that and move on. I guess this is something that can probably never be answered.

So that is it for another on a personal note. I will be back tomorrow with November Favorites.

Have you checked out my previous post, November Essence Beauty Box??

~**Drea Notes**~

I haven't put up my tree yet. Is anyone else ready for Christmas?

I tried the new Holiday Spice Flat White at Starbucks and it was pretty good. You just have to let it sit for a little bit to get the full flavor.


  1. Some people are pretty ballsy. I don't understand it either. I feel like cheating is so "normal" now a days it disgusts me. Loyalty is a very hard thing to find now a days....

    1. I agree Tonya. It seems like things have really changed. Hopefully we can understand it someday. Thanks for reading!

  2. You know Andrea I think that this is such an important topic to discuss. I find it disgusting how some people will try disrespect a person relationship. I don't understand it either why would anyone want to be a backup person. Also I read a story about this woman who was engaged and she turn down a man who asked her out and he killed her! I was like what is this world coming to?!

    1. I heard about that and it was so sad and senseless. I don't know what is wrong with people these days. Thanks for reading Pilar!

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!

Us after the tasting

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…
