Happily Ever Johnson: Destination Planning

It seems like Spring can't make up its mind if it wants to stay or not. This weather has been crazy! Well in my last post I told you guys that we decided on doing a destination wedding now. At first I was so against it but now I feel like we are saving more money than having a wedding here. Since then we have been trying to get things together so our family and friends can know how much things are going to be. My aunt put us in touch with an amazing travel agent and she has been so helpful. She answered all of our questions and has been very informal about the whole process. We decided on Jamaica and have been looking at the suggested resorts and different wedding packages the resorts have. I'm getting more excited the more these plans start to fall into place. Now I'm going to start looking at wedding dresses at the end of the month and we need to get on this engagement party planning as well. I can say that wedding planning feels less stressful now (I think I will drive myself crazy with finding a dress lol)! We also sent out our engagement announcements and here is what they looked like.



It took a while to find an announcement I liked and ordered these from Mixbook. They have a lot of great cards for so many occasions. I'm so happy with the way these came out and the pictures my cousin took for us. See you guys Thursday!!

Have you checked out my previous post from my series, On A Personal Note..?

I had so much fun spending time with family this past weekend and see my niece graduate from high school!!

Looks like I shouldn't put any Fall or Winter clothes away anytime soon lol!

We're trying to find another unique hashtag for everything, its so hard lol!


  1. Jamaica sounds awesome! Look into Secrets resorts. They are amazing. All inclusive, beautiful grounds, excellent food and hotel staff. I have been to Secrets in Mexico but they have locations in Jamaica too. If you plan to bring your son or other children, it is an adults only resort but Dreams is a sister chain that does allow children. I HIGHLY recommend you looking into all the sister resorts.

    1. Someone told us about Secrets but we do need a resort that is kid friendly. Thanks for the suggestion Tanya!

  2. Yay to less stressful wedding planning! Jamaica sounds exciting and that's great they have wedding packages.

    1. They do have some great packages and hopefully we can decide on one soon! Thanks for stopping by Jackie!

  3. This sounds simply great! Thanks a lot for these photos. We are getting married quite soon and trying to find affordable Chicago wedding venues for our ceremony. All venues we have visited are way over our budget.

    1. When we were looking at venues, they were so expensive as well. This destination wedding is going to save some money. Good luck with your wedding planning!!

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…

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…
