Happily Ever Johnson: Surprise Bridal Shower

I knew my bridal shower was coming up soon but didn't know when it was. I was wondering how they would get me out of the house and dressed for my bridal shower because most weekends, you can catch me without makeup and in comfy clothes lol. Well my Maid of Honor texted me one day last week and asked what I was doing Saturday. I responded that if you count laundry then I wasn't doing much lol. She said that she found a day party in New York to go to and wanted to know if I wanted to go. I said sure, the guys were going for their tux fitting that day anyway. She said cool and said what time we were leaving. I was pretty excited because I haven't been to New York in a while. It was Saturday and it was such a nice day. Funny thing is, I brought an outfit to wear to my bridal shower and put it on just in case that day. Even if it wasn't going on, I was still going to wear it again lol. My maid of honor picked me up and on the way she said she had to stop and make payment at the venue where another event was going to happen. We stopped there and she ran inside then came back out and said the manager was going to be while and to come in a wait with her inside of sitting outside in the car. I said sure and when I walked in the room and everyone yelled "Surprise!" I was truly surprised and was expecting my shower to be at another venue lol. 

They got me good lol! My family and bridesmaids did such an amazing job with the shower, I loved everything! I was so happy to see everyone! Here are some pictures of the decor around the venue. There was even a Mimosa bar lol!

The cupcakes were so good!

We played a lot of fun games, ate, took pictures and just had a good time. I loved how my favorite color was throughout the venue and decor, even my bridesmaids were wearing pink! My fiance' and some of the groomsmen came towards the end and he helped open gifts with me!

It was such an amazing day and I'm so thankful to everyone who came out and helped throw the shower. I didn't want to be traditional and wear white to my bridal shower lol. I had to be different. I got my outfit from Macy's and shoes from Call It Spring. I did my own makeup as well. 

We are one month away from the big day and we're getting excited! I'm down to getting the small details together and making sure we have everything in place! Enjoy the week and see you guys Thursday!!

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…
