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 dinnerware, we wanted something that had the right amount of flare I'll say without being too much. The rep from Miskasa was so helpful in that department. 

We walked around the store for a while and found some cookware, towels, washcloths and other kitchen stuff. I really loved the event and crossing that off of my list lol!

Next on our list was the wedding bands. We both were not too sure on what kind of bands that we wanted. We headed over the jeweler where he got my engagement ring from and he was super helpful and made the process easy. It was really fun trying on all the bands and I found one that I loved and went with my ring. My fiance found a band that he liked as well. I didn't know they made rings in all these different metals, I thought it was either silver or gold lol.

Lastly was getting together with my coordinators (aka my Mom and aunts lol) and looking for decor. We are pretty much doing a DIY for the centerpieces, bouquets, boutonnieres  and so on. We went out on one Saturday around to a few stores looking for the flowers to everything. It was a lot trying to figure out my many tables, how many bridesmaids, groomsmen, how many other corsages and things we needed. We made out really well and found a lot of what we were looking for. I found all of the arrangements I wanted on Pinterest (which I have been on a lot lol). I already knew what I wanted, it was just a matter of finding the flowers.

I feel like we are making a lot of progress. I just need to make sure I have everyone's correct address and making sure I'm not forgetting anything lol. I'm not going crazy just yet lol. 

So that is it for another wedding planning update. How did you stay organized when you planned your wedding? Hope you enjoy this week and see you Thursday!

I miss watching football on Sunday! This Superbowl should be a pretty good game.

My son is so into Michael Jackson now. He watches his videos and tries dancing like him. I love it!


  1. I thought the wedding registries were really over whelming but my cousin went with us and helped us out back when I was engaged. I think DIY centerpieces are the way to go! Def a smart way to cut costs. I wish i did that lol

    1. Yea it was a bot overwhelming but glad it is out of the way finally lol! Thanks for reading Tanya!

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…
