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!!

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…
