Heading East


I am currently hanging out in the Houston airport waiting for my flight to Tokyo and then onto Seoul. I figured it was a good time to revive this old blog of mine, since it really only comes back to life when I travel! 

I have the incredible opportunity to travel back to Korea again for two weeks. It's a beautiful country and culture and I'm excited to have the opportunity to explore it once again. It will look very similar to my trip last summer but also a few new things that I have not experienced yet. 


Packing is never my favorite part, but I do make a game out of seeing how light I can pack. I had to check two suitcases with Dillon things, but my personal belongings all fit into my carry-on's. Yes, it's a talent of mine. Don't judge if I'm wearing the same clothes in all my pictures for the next two weeks.


After hardly sleeping last night with all that was on my mind, I was up at 3:30 this morning to finish up some last minute things before heading off to the airport for my 6:30 flight. Whoever thought that flights leaving this early was a good idea... "ugh" is all I have to say. I was able to doze off for a bit on my short hour flight from Tulsa. 

Next stop.... Tokyo! One of these days maybe I'll actually make it into Japan and not just the airport which I have visited several times.

Iff you want to follow along, I'll probably be updated Instagram much more frequently than my blog. You can find me at: annelifjohnson.

Birthdays and Baseball

It was so wonderful being back in New York with family for 11 days. I especially happy that I was able to be there to Celebrate "Micah man's" 4th birthday! Like most things Johnson related, it was a baseball themed party.




















The one request I had for my trip home was to watch some ball games. Between Thad, Tage, and Kiah, I watched 9 games in 11 days, 4 were in less than 48 hours of being home!








Tailgating at Thad's game!

















The little boys favorite part of the game, after when they can go out on the field and play catch with Uncle Thad.


I'm now back in Tulsa, getting caught up on work in the office. I am trying to get caught up as quickly as possible because in just a few short weeks I'll be gone or another two weeks. This time for another trip to Korea!

Home Sweet Home

Nothing quite like being home with family. As much as I love Oklahoma, it is hard to be away from family, especially from my sweet nephews and niece. Babies change so quickly and that is definitely the case with Miss Quinlan. She was just 5 months old at Christmastime and now at 9 months, she is crawling and jabbering away. Even though it was a chilly few hours at the Bona game, it was so fun to see these sweet kiddos and of course watch Thad play! It was too cold to take lots of pictures, but I did grab my camera from the car for a few shots.











You can't go to a baseball game without your glove!


I love this picture of Micah and Landon with Thad at bat in the background.





They rolled down this hill probably 25 times. It was making me dizzy just watching them!


It's also super fun dropping rocks down the drain. This kept them entertained for quite a while. Between this and rolling down the hill, they were happy.


Sweet baby girl!


My time in NY always goes way too fast. Soaking up every minute I can!

{Friday Favorites} 4.1.16

Happy almost weekend and Happy April!! Yes, I realize that the only blog posts I am actually writing are my "Friday Favorites." What can I say, they are easy and don't take me much time at all. I do have a couple other post ideas bouncing around in my head, one of these days I will actually get them written. 


First of all, today is my Grandma's birthday! Happy Birthday to this young lady. If you know her, you would know that is very appropriate for her to have her birthday on April Fool's Day. :) I am so thankful to have this incredible woman in my life. I want to be her when I grow. 

Now onto some of my favorites from the last few weeks since I missed last week!

ONE >>> Two weeks ago, my friends and I attended the Extraordinary Women's Conference that came to Tulsa. It was SO GOOD! We just recently finished up the Seamless Bible study by Angie Smith and she was one of the speakers! We even got to meet her and have her sign our books. She is as sweet in person as I thought she would be. I think we could be real life best friends. :) It was an awesome weekend filled with great speakers. Already looking forward to next year!

TWO >>> My brother, Asa, moved to Indiana! I am not happy that he moved and is in a new place because I know how hard that is, but I am thankful to not be the only Johnson kid living out of state now. Also, I think I've talked to him more in the past week than I have in the last year so that's a huge plus!

THREE >>> Easter is one of my favorite holidays. The older I get, the more it hits me what Christ really did for us on the cross. 

FOUR >>> Spring is in the air! So thankful for the buds that have come out and all the beautiful spring flowers. They make me so happy. :) 

FIVE >>> Tuesday night was a belated birthday celebration for me with one evening at Pinot's Pallet! I've been wanting to do a painting but have been so nervous since I am not artistic at all. I'm glad I "lived life on the edge" and decided to give it a try. It was so much fun! I decided for my 30th I had to do something a little different. 

I have a pretty low key weekend which I am excited about! Hoping to get caught up on some projects around the apartment. Happy weekending, friends!
