On a personal note.....

It feels like time is going by too fast. I can't believe that my wedding will be here next month and I'm keeping pretty calm (when on the inside I'm screaming and running with my hands in the air)! I feel like I've been in wedding planning mode for so long, I won't know what to do with myself afterwards lol. The new job is going well so far. There were a few times I started to doubt myself in the position because things got a little rough and I felt like I had to be an expert at it. I felt like I had to prove something because I was finally given this opportunity and wanted to show that I could do this job. I didn't want to make mistakes and felt like I had to be somewhat perfect. I had to remind myself that there is not such thing as being perfect, it is okay not to know everything at once. I had to remember that things take time and you can't rush things. There is still so much to learn and I had to remind myself that they did pick the right person for this job. I am doing a pretty good job so far and so proud of that. I feel like things are starting to fall into place and looking good. There are so many things I want to and accomplish personally and professionally. I only want to be successful and not have any regrets on not stepping out on faith and taking that risk. All I can do is try and if it doesn't work out, it is okay, at least I gave it a try. I never know what could come of something if I don't take a risk. I'm just so excited for the new role in my life and actually going by a new last name! I've been practicing my new signature lol. I know it is going to be a bit of an adjustment but I know we will be happy and love this journey together. Any recommendations for a camera to film with? I'm in the market for a new one and waiting until after the wedding to purchase one. I know there are so many out there but just want one I can record videos and vlog with. I'm just glad that I am in a good place and being set up for success. I'm looking forward to everything that is coming my way.

There are so many good movies that are coming out this Summer. My son is super excited about all the kid ones lol!

I'm looking forward to seeing what new Summer T.V shows are coming out. I'm looking forward to Animal Kingdom and I need to catch up on Suits. What Summer shows do you watch?


  1. I'm glad you are finally adjusting to your new job and happy! You must be SO excited for your wedding to come!

    1. Thanks Tanya! I really am and trying not to stress lol!

  2. Sounds like things are going well for you Drea! I'm so happy for you! You're wedding is quickly approaching! I know this is an exciting time for you and your loved ones!

  3. I remember back in HS when I was practicing signatures with my crush's last name hehehe. I never thought to practice before I got married lol! I'm glad everything's going well with the new job, and yes don't be afraid to say I don't know - it's better to let them know than pretend you do and mess up later - as what hubby has told me before too =)

    1. Lol I did the same thing in HS! I will always ask a million questions until I understand something. Thanks for reading Jackie!

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…
