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!!

I tried the new Cinnamon Almond Milk Macchiato from Starbucks and it is very tasty! I like it!

I need to find time to read again, I have a couple books waiting for me lol.

I have really gotten into listening to Podcast while at work. I know I'm late but I just love how it is motivating me. I'm currently listing to Life According To Her and #Goals. Go check them out!


  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!

Happily Ever Johnson:Tastings and Things

The countdown to this wedding is getting real. April is around the corner and the big day will be here soon! I have starting stressing about the small details and hoping we have everything. We got to do the fun stuff recently, food tasting! I know that was the thing we were both looking forward to. We first had our food tasting at the venue. You were able to bring family members to the tasting and you got to experience the full service during the reception and everything on the menu. I liked that everyone was given a paper with a description of all the menu items so you knew what you were eating and take notes about each dish. I found it helpful to have some other people with us so you got an idea of what the majority of guest would like and different opinions about each dish. We narrowed down what dishes we wanted on our menu and they were all so good!

Us after the tasting

My son was super exciting to do the cake tasting with us! He just wanted lemon cake and wanted us to have lemon…

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…

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…
