On a personal note....

Happy Thursday! Man this week at work has been so crazy! Classes started up again and it has just been super busy. I can't wait to relax this weekend! It is funny how some things just happen for a reason. I wanted to put up a video today but my laptop decided to start acting crazy and I got a little frustrated but it was okay. I was think man what can I put up today and thought to give a little update to what is going on. My life is about to get a little more hectic and bust with planning my wedding. I got engaged December 26 and it was a total surprise! I plan on filming my engagement story soon and will be introducing a new series documenting the whole process. I was trying to think of a name of this series and hope to come up with one soon. I hope I don't drive myself crazy with all this planning but it will be well worth it when the big day. I'm just super excited about everything. I really have to buckle down and save save save!! It is going to be hard because I do a lot of impulse buying and at Sephora at least once a month lol. That is why establishing a budget is in my goals for this month. I need to really save more than I spend so I can have a nice wedding. Did I mention I was excited?? I'm still in grad school and that is going pretty well. I'm really learning a lot and enjoying my classes so far. My son asked for a brother for Christmas which was funny. Yes we do want more kids so he can have sibling to play with, just want it to be the right timing for another one. That is about all that I wanted to talk about. I hope you guys enjoy the rest of the week and see you guys Tuesday.

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…
