A Surprise Trip To The Ballet

My fiance is one who likes to tell me some surprises before they happen but he was great at keeping the day he proposed a secret lol. One day he sent me a calendar invite for a special night and I thought we were just going out to eat and hanging out by ourselves. He had to tell me one day that I was going to the ballet to see my idol dance, Misty Copeland!!! I was super happy and couldn't believe it. I've been wanting to get to the ballet for a long time but I couldn't wait to see her dance! I actually didn't know what to wear to the ballet and had to do some research on what to wear. I was under the assumption you had to wear a ballgown and be really fancy lol but as long as you were presentable. I was so excited that day and just couldn't wait to get there. The ballet was at the David H. Koch Theater and it was so beautiful in there! We actually had floor seats close to the stage which blew my mind!

We couldn't take pictures or film during the performance but just to see Misty up close like that was just life lol. She was just so beautiful in person and the way she danced was more than amazing! I was just in awe. The fiance got major points for this one!

There were three acts to the program and intermissions in between. Misty only danced in the first act but I loved the rest of the ballet! I was just so happy! After it was over we were outside like everyone else taking pictures and stuff. I have never been to the Lincoln Center and it was just amazing!

We walked across the way to find this Italian restaurant and the food was so good. We both had pasta and had some good ol' NY cheesecake!

I had spaghetti with goat cheese on top and he had rigatoni with vodka sauce

The cheesecake was soooo good! We were stuffed lol!

I hope you guys have a good weekend and see you Tuesday!!



  1. I've never been to a ballet or live show or musical. I would like to one day. I would really like to see The Nutcracker live. I've seen it a bunch of times on tv as a kid. It sounds like you had a great night!

  2. That is awesome that you were able to see Misty live.......I love her and she is amazing.

  3. I haven't been to a ballet since I saw the Nutcracker when I was child, but I do want to go see another ballet! How awesome you got to see Misty Copeland! She's a amazing dancer! Her story is so inspiring!

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…
