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: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!

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…
