On a personal note....

It seems like so much has been going on lately, the presidential race, Olympics, summer going by way too fast, Football season is almost back (I had to throw that in there lol). Along with that, I'm still holding down a lot but it has gotten so much easier with having a set schedule for everything. I don't feel like a chicken with its head cut off lol. I'm not doing so much last minute anymore but still procrastinate a bit (can't help it lol). It just feels like I am a lot more focused on what needs to be done, what is a priority and so on. It just hit me that I'm an adult (like after how many years) and I'm about to be a wife next year. Where did my young adulthood go? It just seems like I was fresh out of college with my degree, still going out and partying and just getting into real adult responsibilities. Now I'm a mommy, about to get married, looking for a house, back in school and really trying to find my niche in the career world. I am still amazed every time I look at my son that I helped create that little life and he's growing so fast. He's going to kindergarten (I think I'm going to cry the first day of school). It is just amazing to me and I love my role as a mom. The other day I was up late and the movie Step Up was on. At some point I started to tear up because of how much I miss dancing. I really hope I can fit that back into my schedule because it was something that was a big part of my life and such a passion. I would eat, sleep and breath it if I had to chance to. I also can't get over Naturalle Drea turning 3 years old at the end of the month. I'll have a blogaversary post around then.

  1. Life really does fly by! You should look into classes and take them every now and then. You don't want to lose something that you loved so much!

    1. I have been trying to find some classes but there are always conflicts with my schedule. Hopefully I will. Thanks for stopping by Tanya!

  2. Time flies when you're having fun =) The worse thing is sacrificing what you really, really love because of stuff but there's always a way to squeeze that in if you really want it.

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…
