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!

Book Review: Dreams Are Built Overnight

Can't believe my birthday is next week, next Monday to be exact! I just want to have a nice, relaxing day. Today I am bringing you another book review (I know, two in one week lol)!

I have to say, I really proud of this guy and everything that he is doing now. I actually went to elementary school with David and he was a pretty cool person(and still is lol). Before this book, he started a company called Sleep Is 4 Suckers which sells apparel with a message behind it. David also expanded into motivational speaking and is a pretty dynamic speaker. I really wanted to support him and read this book because I was really drawn to the title of it.

I honestly did not want to put this book down when I started reading it. I read this book every free moment I had because I really wanted this information to sink in. You can really visualize what David is saying in this book and really picture the message he sharing. He really does drop a lot of amazing knowledge, tips and advice in this book.

Happily Ever Johnson: Registries, Rings and Things

It is crazy how fast this wedding is approaching! I can't believe it is almost February and June will be here before we know it! We have done so much with wedding planning and trying to make sure we have everything covered. First we started with finishing our registries. We started them but it just didn't feel complete. Earlier this month we attended a Sip and Scan event at Macy's. They had representatives from different brands such as Mikasa, Kitchen Aid and All Clad to answer any questions about products and to help you pick out the things you would like to put on your registry. They had a DJ there, passed hors o'derves and mocktails.

Here we are with the scanner having registry fun lol

We didn't have our formal or everyday dinnerware on the registry and finally picked those out. It was hard trying to decide what to go with. For everyday, I was looking for something that was durable since we have a 5 year old and dishware that was going to last. For our formal di…
