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!!

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…

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…
