The Scenic View (About Me)

Hi.  I'm Ali.  Ali JOHNSON.  I started this blog in December of 2009 merely because... I am shamelessly impressionable.  My husband's cousin's wife (Did you follow that?  Would that be my cousin-in-law-in-law?), Anna, suggested it.  Based upon my fascination with Facebook status updates she sensed, before I did, that I had much more than 140 characters worth of stuff to say about the nonsense in my brain - and the zany life of the Johnsons.

I'm completely sarcastic. I'm nothing if not self-deprecating. And, life makes me laugh. There are always bumps along the way, but we always pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, get over ourselves... and start laughing again.

I can't promise you much.  But, I will be honest; sometimes serious; usually a goof-ball. Hopefully, I'll let you know that you're no more of a freak than the rest of us.  We're all just a little bit crazy and doing our best to play the hand we were dealt.

In "real life", I am the unbelievably blessed wife of Shawn (since Jun '99) and mom of Spencer (Oct '03) and Elizabeth (Jun '06). I am the very busy director of this household. And, if I could choose to do anything in this world, I would choose to be the wife & mom of my family.

So, there you have it.  I hope you enjoy the view.

What others have said about The View from The Johnsons:
"...You must create a rating system from 'uncontrollable laughter' to 'sobbing'."

"...this blog is lean forward in your chair, spit your drink out of your mouth, accidentally snot on yourself funny. And she is one of those people that you think ‘We could so hang out. We could be besties. She would totally like me. Right? I think she would like me. Don’t you think she would like me?’" -Jamie at Avant Garde Parenting (my "virtual bestie" ;) from her guest post at Mommy Monologues

"...Perfect mix of funny, sarcastic, serious and oh-my-gosh--that sounds-just-like-my-life!"

"I love her self-deprecating wit and ability to find the humor in the mundane." -Amy at Eat. Live. Laugh. and sometimes shop!
