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!!

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…
