Big Little Lies Review

Happy Sunday. My team isn't playing today but it's still good to watch some football. Well this post is going to be on Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty from Birchbox Book Club. This book was a long one, 458 pages to be exact. It really took me a while to read it but was very worth it!! 

This book kept me guessing the whole way through on what really happened and who did what. It took me a while to figure out this takes place is Australia, I knew it was somewhere overseas because the children were saying "Mummy." I'm not going to give too much away because this is so worth reading. This story starts out in the beginning of the school year for some first time kindergarteners. It mainly focuses on the parents of some of the children. Drama already starts to unfold before the children go to orientation. I love how the author puts police statements by some of the parents at the end of each chapter about the night in question. It really keeps you guessing about what happened during the Trivia Night and who did what. Every family has many secrets, lies, drama and just craziness in thier lives. Most of the moms really take it to the extreme and are very catty. When I finally got to the night in question and it was revealed what happened, I dropped the book and was literally running around going " Oh my gosh!! Really???" 

If you haven't read this book, please go out and get it. I know over 400 pages is a lot to get through but it is so worth reading!! The author did an excellent job with this book and I would like to read more books by her. I didn't get picked for this months book which was the series of Gone Girl but I hope to get picked for next months book. Hope you guys enjoy the rest of the weekend and see you guys Tuesday!! 


  1. Wow you read a ton of books! I used to get through a whole book in a bout a week before I started blogging. Now blogging takes up way too much of my time which leaves very little time for reading :(

    1. Thanks to this book club. I really don't have much time to read either but I try when I have a free moment to myself lol!! Thanks for stopping by 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…
