Hey lovelies!

Happy Hump Day!

It has been awhile since I wrote one of my "no filter" posts, but I'd say it's about time I get some things off of my chest. I always have so many ideas float into my head to write about, but eventually I end up just either drafting it or scraping it all together because I'm like "naw.. too deep Jam, too deep". Y'all know what though? This is therapeutic for me, so I'm about to start not really caring if it's too deep or not. If you rock with it, I appreciate you. If you don't, that's okay too.. you still cool in my book. :) Now let's get into this!

Happy Monday beauties!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I had a pretty good time with my husband and relaxing at home. Saturday I really just spent the day catching up on rest and running a few errands, and we bought some furniture for our home which I'm super excited about! With all of the stress of my new position at my job and all the traveling, we haven't really spent much time on furnishing our home. Mainly because I'm never there, but it was super exciting to finally get some stuff and I can't wait to show you guys the rooms as we finish them.

Hey y'all! Happy Hump Day! :)

I hope you all have had a great week thus far and you're making it over the hump with ease! I'm a little in my feelings because I feel like all I've been doing lately is working. It has been really hard on me being away from my family and friends and only being home like two or three days at a time. Not only is it exhausting, but it's weighing a lot on me emotionally as well. I enjoy my job and what I do, but all of this back and forth traveling is weighing heavy. Anyway, enough of my "blues", let's talk about these blues I'm wearing!

Happy Hump Day everyone!

Today, I wanted to talk a little about my 25th year of life and how I truly feel like I've done so much growing this past year. I'm not sure if this is something everyone does, but when my birthday is approaching, I like to reflect and think about who I was before I turned the age I am, and who I am now right before I turn a new chapter/new age. After truly thinking about my year and how far I've come, I have named this past year "the year of letting go".
OBSESSED with this welcome mat! Get you one here. :)

Hey everyone! Happy Monday! :)

I hope you all had an amazing weekend. I've been really on the go lately and it is starting to seriously wear me out. I got back in town from Chicago this past Friday, and yesterday, I flew back out here again. I love traveling, but all of this traveling back to back like this with barely any time at home in between is REALLY exhausting. I spent my Saturday at HOME and I didn't do anything at all until 4pm. Even then, I only left the house once to get something to eat. I was THAT TIRED y'all!

Not to mention, we still have so much unpacking to do in our house! Originally, we wanted to have our housewarming this upcoming Saturday because it is my birthday weekend (YAY!), but I am so glad we decided to push it back a few weeks because there's NO WAY we would be ready for that, haha! Anyway, enough of my tiredness, I'll be fine! Today, I wanted to talk to you guys about the home buying process and some 'do's' and 'don'ts' I learned along the way!

Hey y'all! Happy FRIDAY!

I know the week is pretty much over, but I realized I didn't get to talk about this past Memorial Day weekend and this dress is screaming Memorial Day and 4th of July. I hope you all had an amazing three day weekend! I had the time of my life! Well, Saturday as you all know was MOVING DAY for the Johnson's so I am so happy to say that we are all moved in to our new home and it still feels so surreal! We have a lot of unpacking to do, but for the most part we are in and settled! Sunday, we were supposed to have a boat day with our friends, but we didn't end up going because the weather said rain. Well guess what? It did NOT rain! Not one drop! We still had fun though as we took the party to my friend's house instead. Monday was definitely all about relaxing and recuperating lol!

Okay so y'all know I'm SUPER SUPER excited today right?!

IT IS JUNE 1ST! Which means that it is OFFICIALLY #JamMonth. WOOT WOOT!

I have always been super obsessed with my birthday. I usually start my countdown around April, but with everything we have had going on, it didn't really hit me until about a week ago that my birthday was coming up! 26.. I can't believe that I am turning 26 in 8 days. Y'all know this means I am no longer going to be on the young side of my 20s... but the side closer to 30! Lord Jesus, take the wheel because I don't know how to feel (BARS!).
