Happily Ever Johnson: Updates

It has been so cold and windy lately, I'm not ready for winter lol. Well, I know I haven't updated you guys on the wedding planning lately and I wanted to have things in place before making any announcements or updates. We have decided to change venues and the wedding back to the states. It was somewhat of a mad rush to book a space. I got a little frustrated at some point because the plans were changing and I was worried about everything and if plans were going to stay concrete. I can breathe now because we officially have a venue! I felt like I was starting all over again with making appointments to visit venues, doing walk through, asking all those questions again and breaking down each price to make sure we were getting the best value and won't spend outside our budget. Our original date was not available anymore so we are now getting married in June of 2017. It was good that we have a later date so we have some more time to plan. So now it is back to deciding on center pieces, favors, escort cards, decor and so much more. The dress that I was going to purchase was not going to fit this new venue and kind of glad I didn't commit to it at the time. I started looking at dresses that I've tried on before and went out myself to try on some dresses. It was actually nice because I was able to look at the dresses and hear my opinion on them in way. And I can say that I will be saying yes to a dress! When I saw myself in the dress, I saw myself getting married in it. It was everything I was looking for and I didn't want to take it off lol! Of course you guys won't see it until the big day but I love it! I have the bridesmaid dresses picked out and the groomsmen tuxes as well. We also figured out what the groom was wearing as well! It seems like things are starting to really come together now and I'm getting excited! I am now trying to get the guest list together, collect correct addresses, figure out seating charts, invitations and so on. We also need a new hashtag for the wedding and I can't think of one lol I'm hoping I don't drive myself too crazy but glad I have the help of family and friends. I have been on Pinterest like crazy looking for ideas and have been finding some really great stuff. I just want this vision for our wedding to come together and we remember our special day forever.

See you guys Thursday!

  2. Just take a breathe and all will workout. It sounds like you have loads going on, but at least the later date is better for you. I used to help planning wedding events so I know it's a lot of work. <3

    1. Thank you so much! Yes I do have a lot going on and glad we have a little more time for everything!

  3. I feel like picking out the venue is the most important part so I'm glad you finally have everything figured out! Glad things are coming together for you!

    1. Yes it was important because I was basing my dress off the venue. I'm glad that part is over lol! Thank you Tanya!!

  4. That's great to see everything's coming together for you! Can't wait to see your dress!

    1. Thanks Jackie. I was stressing out a bit but glad things are working out!

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…
