TGIF! This is a particularly exciting Friday for me, as my long-awaited Punta Cana vacation is finally here! I'm super excited for my week in the sun, and can't wait to spend lots of relaxing time on the beach with T (and to consume everything that our all-inclusive resort has to offer). I'm more than ready to fully jump into vacay-mode but before I fly away, here's 5 things I'm loving this week!
InStyle blogger event
Earlier this week, I added the Summer Social hosted by InStyle magazine, where I got to mix and mingle with some representatives from incredible brands! It was a lovely night of sipping, sampling, and learning about some hot new products. As a bonus, I got to catch up with some fabulous ladies...

In addition to discovering some new companies and products, we also got to revisit some old favorites such as Gardein (which Pam blogged about after we added the InStyle holiday event). Naturally, there was no way I was passing up posing with an oversized bag of chicken:
Meal planner notebook
Call me old fashioned but when it comes to list-making and planning, there's nothing better than actually putting pen to paper. A friend recently showed me her May Designs customized meal planner notebook, and I simply HAD to have one of my own. While all of the pattern options for the cover are simply adorable, I immediately knew that I would be selecting the sweet little golden pineapples since our kitchen is pineapple-themed. It's only been in my possession for a week but it's already been incredibly helpful with grocery shopping and shaping our weekly menu! In addition to buying the prettiest paper planner you can find, what are your best tips for meal planning?

Have you seen these gorgeous photos created by moving lights that spell out words and make shapes? I am obsessed with all of them (and definitely want to try out some of my own with sparklers). My very favorites are by my friend Brian of Chorus Photography - these images are simply stunning, and I love the tranquil background that really allows the words to pop. So pretty! They're definitely inspiring me to figure out a way to incorporate them into our apartment decor.
A is revealed!
Technically this happened last week, but I'm still not over the shocking reveal made in the Pretty Little Liars finale (and PLEASE tell me I'm not the only 30something who is obsessed with this teen soap opera!). After years of being strung along by red herrings, the show FINALLY gave us some answers! For any other fans out there - what did you think of the big reveal? All I know is, it's going to be incredibly difficult to wait until 2016 for new episodes (and don't even get me started on that time jump!).
Ok ok ok, I know I'm going on and on about Punta Cana, but I've been looking forward to this trip for sooooo long and I'm just giddy that it's finally time to start this journey! I'm off to do some last-minute packing (oops)...have a wonderful weekend, and I look forward to sharing some vacation stories and snaps when I'm back in town!
