What About Your Friends??

I had another post scheduled for today but this was on my heart to write about. I was kinda inspired over the past couple of months with this and also after seeing Girl's Trip (which was really amazing by the way, go see it). Next to my relationship with my family, I cherish my friendships. Those are the people who know you best, won't steer you wrong, there to listen to you, give advice when you ask for it or not, the people who you can call up and have a great time with no matter what you are doing and those who push you to do and be better. In return you do the same for them. I've have some friendships come to an end in the past and have out grown some friends but I've been wondering how I can be a better friend or how we all can be better friends. I'll admit to not keep in touch with everyone all the time but it is good to check in on some of your friends, you never know what they may be going through. I am one to put on that facade and act like everything is peachy when I'm really not okay. I am one to hold things and not want to say anything but it is not good to do that. Your friends are there to help you. There were some friends that I did not know were going through certain stuff and I want to do a better job at reaching out more often, getting together more often and actually taking action on those plans instead of just talking about them. I have been really inspired by a lot of things lately and just want to do better in all areas of my life. I plan on getting out there more and networking with other influencers and bloggers, making those connections and relationships. I love the connections I have with other bloggers from previous events I have attended. I want to keep this positive vibe I have going and just keep making improvements. It is always good to make improvements, you only get better.

  1. Loved reading this post Drea! You know I'm somewhat like that myself, I put up facade like everything is fine when it's not. I think that's part of being human. I used to hear so many people say that you'll see who you're real friends are as you age. That's true, some friends you outgrow, and that's okay too. I keep my circle of friends pretty small, but nonetheless I'm glad and grateful for those I can truly call my friend. Wonderful post and insight!

    1. Thank you Pilar. It is important to keep those friends around that are in your best interest and you can truly call a friend.

  2. This is so true. Your girlfriends are SO IMPORTANT! I have drifted alot from mine for one reason or another such as people moving or having kids (which I don't). I do think its so important to stay in touch and be there for one another. Sometimes I feel like I keep more in touch with my blogger friends than my non blogger ones.

    1. It sometimes seems like your blogger friends understand you a little more but it is good to have that diverse group of friends. Thanks for reading Tanya!

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…

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.
