Being patient is key....

My fiance sent this to me a while ago on Instagram and I have reposted this myself. (And excuse the language in this one)

This really spoke to me and I have been quiet about a few things that have been going on. I don't tell everyone moves that I'm making because there are those who will try to talk you out of it or tell you that you can't accomplish that. 

I can finally say that after a lot of hard work, I got a promotion at work!!! I wanted to wait until it was official but I am super excited for this new job! I actually applied for this job three times and I guess third time is the charm. After this position came up again, I was so over it and ready to give into defeat. People understood my reasoning but encouraged me not to give up so easily. I really, really appreciate those that encouraged me, didn't let me give up and talked me out of not trying again. My manager even helped me prep for the interview which I went in more confidently and did so well. I can't express what it means to have people who see your potential and want to see you do better and are willing to help you get to the next level. I am truly grateful and just so happy. I have worked so hard and hard work really pays off. Also being patient and waiting for your turn. I was just wondering why everyone else was moving up, getting promotions and I'm still sitting here. It wasn't my time yet and I'm glad I have learned to be so patient and wait, look what happened! 

I wanted to tell any of you ready to give into defeat, ready to give up.......KEEP GOING AND DON'T GIVE UP! I can truly attest to it and know how it feels. You have to go through the storm to get to the sunshine and rainbows. I hope this encouraged some of you and motivated some of you to give it that extra push. Have a great weekend and see you guys Tuesday!!!

My son already has a loose tooth! I'm not ready for him to grow up! Lol!

We are going for a tasting this weekend and I'm excited. Hopefully we can decide on the menu. It is getting so close!!


  1. Congrats on your promotion Drea! How exciting! I'm like that too sometimes when I'm over something and feel like quiting, I keep going. I usually stay quiet about my goals as well. Isn't it sad how people can try to be negative influences when you want to accomplish goals?! I know not everyone is like that, but in life you would think we all should want each other to make it and be successful. Great post!

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…
