Welcome To 2017...No Resolutions Here

Happy New Year!!!! I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday with family and friends! I am not ready to go back to work lol! I really enjoyed being about to spend Christmas break with my son. We had so much fun and I even got back into the gym!! This wedding is in 6 months and I want to be snatched and slaying down the aisle lol! (But I'm serious, I will be slaying tho lol). It was the perfect time to hop back in the very now crowded gym and it felt so good. I just need to stay away from all the junk food I love so much (especially when people bring donuts into work) and I'll be good. I'm so thankful to be seeing another year and starting it off in a good way. 2016 was pretty interesting and I have learned a lot about myself. I went through a lot of emotional ups and downs and learned so much about the power of being patient and waiting on things to happen when they are supposed to. Everyone has their own path and trying to jump on someone else's path will take you off course. I am just happy for the little things in life and excited for what 2017 has in store. I'll update you guys on the wedding stuff soon but things are coming together. I used to make resolutions every year about what I'm going to do, how I'm going to change and so on. Life is unpredictable and you don't know what will happen in the new year. Honestly, I forgot about my resolutions and didn't stick to them. I do have my monthly goals on here and it is easier for me to complete then trying to chase something for a year that I know may not happen or can be out of my control. I know for a fact that I want to stay in my positive mind and spread that around like glitter lol. I know I want to read more books and be a better Drea this year. I know there are some things I can improve on and it takes time. I'm still a work in progress and proud of where I am today. I'm just excited for year for obvious reasons lol and just where it will take me and my family. See you guys Thursday!!

Have you seen the show This Is Us?? is so good. We caught up on all the episodes, If you haven't seen it, you should!

I need to take week vacations more often, I loved the break from work and I didn't think about it once until it was time to go back lol! 


  1. I agree, coming up with a list of goals is pretty hard to stick to for the most part but the two that I really plan to focus on are being more positive in life and looking for a new job. Happy New Year!

    1. I like the focus on being more positive. It can be hard when a lot of things are going on. Thanks for reading Tanya and good luck on the job search!

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…
