On A Personal Note...

I sat here looking at a blank screen for a while trying to figure out how to start this post lol. It happens sometimes when you feel a little stuck on how to start. I've been adjusting a lot to my new position and duties at work. I love being closer to home and saving money traveling in state. I can now be home to do homework and have dinner with my family. I can also cook dinner if I want. I'm just so thankful that worked really hard to get into this position and didn't give up. I wanted more of a challenge and wanted something different. I have been really focused on learning this position, asking a lot of questions, making sure I understand everything and so on. When I first started, I kind of knew about the position from my previous position and knew what I was about to step into. I had people tell me about the position and how it can be and wanted to make sure I could handle it. I know people meant well but once someone doubts I can do something, I feel like I need to prove people wrong. I know my abilities and what I'm capable of, if I know I can do it, I'm going to show you. I'll admit it was a bit overwhelming at first because of all the information I had to know, things I had to remember, important reports and know how to juggle my responsibilities and time. I'm pretty much use to that type of environment from previous positions that I have held. As I started to do work on my own, I started to feel more confident and stopped second guessing myself. I have support when I need it and I'm grateful for that. I know you have heard that quote that if your dreams don't scare you, they are not big enough. When I got this promotion, it scared me at first. It scared me that I actually made something happen, I got to move up, I stayed patient and it paid off. Then I started to wonder if I could really do this, would I be good and it hit me that things were going to be fine, I asked for this and HE would not give me anything I was not ready for. I'm glad it scared me and made me uncomfortable because it is forcing me to step up and show them that they made the right choice. So far, I'm doing well and getting a lot of positive feedback. It feels good that I am excelling so far and I love it. I am just so grateful for the opportunity. 
I hope you guys have a great weekend and see you Tuesday!!

  1. Congratulations on your promotion! I always admire you for pushing yourself all the time - working, finishing school, planning a wedding and taking care of your li'l one!

    1. Thank you so much Jackie! I still wonder how I do it all lol!

  2. That is so great that you are doing well in your new position. I'm happy for you. I need to get a new job so bad but scared and at the same time nothing is jumping out to me as interesting when I look.

    1. Thank you Tanya! Job hunting can be hard but I hope you find something soon.

  3. Congratulations on your promotion Drea! Hard works always pays off and more importantly you never gave up! I'm learning for that every struggle or challenge in life, it's usually for a bigger purpose. 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…
