Happily Ever Johnson: Finishing Touches and Bachelorette Fun

I can't believe in 6 days I'll be officially Mrs.Johnson!!! Time has flown by so fast, its crazy! It just seems like I was just starting to plan this wedding and now it will be here!! I honestly don't know what I'm going to do with myself when I'm out of wedding planning mode lol. I know you all have been enjoying this series so much and can't wait to show you guys everything! We are now down to the last little details and things to do. We had our finalization meeting a couple weeks ago and we went over everything that is going to happen that day, I finally gave over my seating chart because it was driving me crazy lol and just what we have to do next. We were doing a walk through of where the ceremony will take place and snapped this picture of my fiance standing where we will say I do.

 I felt a little something from me standing on the aisle and seeing him up there. It just felt so so-real, like this was really happening soon, 

Soon to be Mr. and Mrs. Johnson

After we had our meeting, we went out to test our signature drinks for the wedding. It is hard to tell if something is going to taste good by reading the ingredients and looking at a pretty picture. We both have very different taste when it comes to drinks, I'm not a fan of beer or bitter tasting liquors. I love my mixed, fruity drinks per say but loves a good Long Island lol! We both searched online and I think we found our drinks, now we just need to name them lol!


I've been doing a lot of DIY projects for this wedding. Etsy and any craft store has been my best friend for the past year and a half. I have been online for hours searching for stuff and ordering like crazy. First I started working on the Mr. and Mrs. sign that will go on the head table. I ordered this off of Etsy plain because it was less expensive to order with no paint or glitter. I just purchased glitter spray paint and loved how it turned out.

I also did my own table seating cards. This seating chart drove me crazy and glad that its done lol. I didn't want the typical cards and wanted something different. Searching through Pinterest, I came across this really creative table assignment with small succulent plants. I really liked the idea and decided to go with it. Here is a sample of what the cards will look like. I'm using a chalkboard marker to write the names and table numbers on each one. 

I have to pick up my dress soon and I was so excited to try it on and see it again. I took my mom with me and she loved it. They had to do another alteration and steam the dress again but can't wait to have it on for the big day.

Overall things are really starting to come together and its so exciting. I also had my bachelorette party about two weekends ago. I didn't know the location or what we were doing but I had so much fun .There was a lot of alcohol(and there really was a lot lol), laughter and fun the whole weekend.

I will have a post up tomorrow and will be taking a break after that. I plan on vlogging up to the big day and will post that sometime after the wedding. Thank you all for your suggestions, advice, kind words and support during this planning process. I am just waiting for the big day to finally get here!!

Happily Ever Johnson:Tastings and Things

The countdown to this wedding is getting real. April is around the corner and the big day will be here soon! I have starting stressing about the small details and hoping we have everything. We got to do the fun stuff recently, food tasting! I know that was the thing we were both looking forward to. We first had our food tasting at the venue. You were able to bring family members to the tasting and you got to experience the full service during the reception and everything on the menu. I liked that everyone was given a paper with a description of all the menu items so you knew what you were eating and take notes about each dish. I found it helpful to have some other people with us so you got an idea of what the majority of guest would like and different opinions about each dish. We narrowed down what dishes we wanted on our menu and they were all so good!

My son was super exciting to do the cake tasting with us! He just wanted lemon cake and wanted us to have lemon…

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…

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…
