Wednesday, December 31, 2014

Part II: This was my favorite part! The reveal. I'm probably going to share way too many pictures. This was so fun! I couldn't wait to see the look on his face and it was priceless. I absolutely love these pictures......

Wedding Part I of MANY!

Tuesday, December 30, 2014
I just realized this week that I never blogged about our wedding! Ahhh, I can't believe it. So here goes-- part one of probably way too many posts about all things Johnston Wedding.........

I love Christmas Cards!

Monday, December 29, 2014
I am so obsessed with Christmas Cards! I've sent them every year since I think I was in middle school-- I always look forward to picking them out, writing the letters and designing adorable return address labels (this is a newer obsession!). And I really, really love receiving cards!......

Made with love.

One night I was browsing pinterest (which has become a nightly obsession) and I found all these metal stamped wooden utensils. I might have immediately pulled up by my amazon app and ordered this set......

O Tannenbaum.....

My very last Christmas gift came in the mail yesterday (!!)..........

Christmas at the J's.... Mantel edition.

Tuesday, December 16, 2014

I absolutely love my house this year! I wanted to use all real greenery, because I LOVE the smell and we've got a fake tree.. soooo I've got to make it smell nice somehow! I've got one boxwood wreath left from the wedding :( I wanted to tie it on a mirror, like I've seen so many times on pinterest. I had to flip my mirror so it would be tall enough and it worked!.......

10 Year Reunion

Tuesday, November 25, 2014
Earlier this month we went to El Dorado for my 10 year class reunion! I feel like we've been planning this party for over year... wait, we have! It turned out so great! I think everyone really had a blast.....

yeah mon, no problem mon!

We had a fabulous honeymoon in Jamaica! I am officially the worst at remembering my camera-- I only got one picture of us the whole time and it's a selfie!..........

China + Crystal

Monday, November 24, 2014
Last week I went to El Dorado for work and while I was there I stopped by and picked up what has come in of our crystal. The whole way home I was thinking about how perfect it's going to look with our china! The china was a gift from Brian's grandparents-- their set of beautiful Noritake china. It's so gorgeous.

Soooo... what did I do when I got home? Set the table! Friday afternoon, for no good reason. Is it bad that it's Monday and I still haven't had the heart to pack it all back up? 

I think our beautiful new white linen "J" napkins fit perfectly! Time to plan a dinner party :) 

Happy Fall, Y'all!

Thursday, November 13, 2014
Even though I woke up to snow (!!!!) on the ground this morning, I'm still celebrating fall! That's right, temperatures aren't supposed to jump from 70 to SNOW! 

I painted this little canvas last night after work. I saw the design on pinterest and just tried it out myself, don't worry- I won't reproduce it and sell it on etsy! ;) Just a little something for my personal collection. 

Happy FALL!!

The most amazing, easy chili that ever lived! My coworker, Ashley, passed this amazing recipe along to me... it's actually from the Food Network.......

Reunion and Katy Perry

Tuesday, October 28, 2014

Earlier this month we went to Wynne for Brian's 10 Year class reunion and had such a great weekend! It was an amazing weekend complete with lots of friends, family and my mother in laws famous chocolate chip cookies! My mouth is watering thinking about them!.....

Jewelry Wall

Monday, October 27, 2014
This project has probably taken me longer than any project to complete! Not because it was hard but because I just totally forgot about it. I bought all the supplies at Lowe's a few months ago... only to get home and realize I bought the wrong dowel rod and a few other things.....

bridal favs

I scheduled my bridals for mid-July and I was sooo so nervous. I just knew it was going to be so hot and I would sweat all my make-up off........


Thursday, October 02, 2014
We're MARRIED!!! YAY! It was the most perfect September day-- the weather was amazing, the cake was so delicious, the church was breathtakingly beautiful, the reception was just perfect and the man was/is everything I could ever ask for! I have so much more I want to write about the wedding, I'll do it soon!.....

yummy, yummy tomato soup

Wednesday, October 01, 2014
I have never liked tomato soup. Actually, I don't know that I had ever really tried tomato soup. I don't like tomatoes plain-- I love salsa, pico, all things of that nature. I also had never eaten a grilled cheese sandwich.....

Wynne Wedding Shower

Tuesday, August 19, 2014
We had such a lovely shower in Wynne this past weekend! So many of the ladies from town came out and showered us with love and beautiful things! And the food was on point! :)......

bachelorette party: last sail before the veil!

Thursday, August 14, 2014
Last weekend we celebrated my bachelorette party in Hot Springs and it was so much fun! We battled storms and tons of rain but ended up with a few beautiful hours out on the water! The best part was catching up with everyone, we always have such great things to talk about! I love these girls more than anything!

My sister, Lauren, made the most adorable decorations and threw one heck of a party! Check it out :)

Party favors from the bride :) 

We even had fresh flowers! 

So adorable! Love the colors! 

Cheers! XOXO

Penzo Family Beach Trip

Wednesday, August 13, 2014
Since I'm playing blog catch-up, I wanted to post about our family beach trip in early June. The whole entire Penzo family went to the beach together, just like old times! Years ago we would all go every other year and stay at Navarre Beach. As everyone got older, schedules got busy and we just stopped.

It was so great to have the whole family there for a whole week. Brian got very well acquainted with the WHOLE entire Penzo clan and it was so fun! Here are some pics!

1st Wedding Shower!
