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??

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!

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…
