On A Personal Note...

The only thing I don't like about the new year is when the gyms get so crowded for the next couple of months! Like where did all these people come from? Lol! I will probably be one of those people lol. It seems like 2016 has gone by super fast! It was full of a lot of good and bad stuff and I have no complaints. I got through the year still employed, roof over my head and clothes to wear. I learned so much about myself in the past year and looking forward to applying those lessons to my life. I'm glad I finally learned how to be patient and wait for things to happen when they are supposed to. I can't wait for 2017 because of my upcoming wedding!! I can't believe it is coming up and I'm excited and nervous. I'm taking on a new role as a wife now and I hope just because you make your relationship legal I'll say, it doesn't change us. I know I have been all stressed about wedding planning but the goal is to stay married and happy. I know we will do just that. Christmas has become more fun for me being a mom now and getting to play Santa. I love the excitement on Christmas morning when he wakes up and sees that Santa came. We also instilled in our son the real meaning of Christmas as well. I know it is all about getting that perfect gift, baking cookies, spending time with family and the only time of year that no one knows how to drive but the real reason for the season. It was important to us that our son knew the real meaning about not only Christmas but Easter as well. I think people do get away from that sometimes and know some people may not be so religious. I'm just excited for what 2017 has to offer and I'm ready for it.

I just hope that 2017 brings peace, equality, justice and kindness.

What are you looking forward to in 2017? Comment below and let me know. See you guys tomorrow.



  1. Great post Drea! I have to admit 2016 was not my year. Even though this year had its ups and downs, I count my blessing rather than focus on the negative things. With a new year brings change, and new beginnings. I don't have any children yet, but I know what that must feel special to see your son's face on Christmas morning. I think that's it's wonderful you're also instilling in your son the reason for the season. So many people tend to forget the meaning of Christmas. Thanks for sharing this post!

    1. Hope you have a great holiday Pilar!! Thanks for stopping by!

  4. 2016 was not my year either but I am so glad that I, we have survived it, and it is ending in a good note. I love that you're teaching your kid the true meaning of Christmas and Easter.

    1. It is a good year when you got through it and going into the next one. Thank you Jackie! Our parents taught us and it was only right to bring up our son the same way!

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…
