On A Personal Note...

It is currently 12:45am and I just finished twisting my hair and kind of forgot I had a post that is supposed to go up today lol! I had something else planned for today but just wanted to be personal today. I had the most amazing weekend and just still thinking about it. I attended The Fearless Conference in Philly but I was doing my first Instagram takeover during the conference!! A little while back, Ahiyana Angel of Life According To Her reached out to me about taking over her Instagram stories during the conference. She first thought of me because I'm in the area and has been watching me on social media since we came in contact at her event, I Need New Friends (I have a post on this event, just to refresh your memory, you can read RIGHT HERE)! I was super excited because someone thought of me and saw potential in me going to an event on their behalf. I then became a little nervous about doing so. I really didn't tell too many people until everything was all set. I will have a more detailed post and vlog on the conference but it was so refreshing to be around so many women and we were just all being supportive and nice to each other. Everyone was just so friendly, down to earth and just wonderful to be around. I learned so much and took away some valuable lessons. I decided to take the quarter off from school to throw myself into this wedding planning. I am not happy that Zika decided to come around because we may be back here with the wedding. Of course that is another post for my wedding series but we want to have another baby and taking that risk with the destination wedding really made us think about it. So yea, I'll be doing more of that and trying to get everything else with life in order. At the end of the day, I just want to be happy and have a successful marriage. I would love for all the kid networks to stop playing so many toy commercials. It seems like they are going really heavy early with them. My son has been asking for stuff almost everyday lol. I'm trying to get him to narrow down his list for Santa lol! This should be fun! We're also trying to get him to pick a Halloween costume, he has it down to three but I am not buying three costumes lol! Hopefully he will pick one soon. I'm slowly getting back in the gym at least once a week which is a start. I hope to pick up some more days soon.



  1. That's exciting that you got to do an instagram takeover! Congrats! The Zika virus is SUPER scary! I don't blame you....and yes they DEF start xmas ads wayyyy too early!!!

    1. It was so much fun and hope I can do it again sometime. Yes this Zika is scary, we want to take it safe but I was really looking forward to the destination wedding. Thanks for stopping by Tanya!!

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…
