Five on Friday {May 27, 2016}

Summer really took her sweet time arriving in NYC, but at least she made it in time for the season's unofficial kick-off this weekend! Memorial Day, it sure is good to see you, and here are 5 other things I'm loving this week!

Wedding Venue!

I'm thrilled to say that T and I have crossed our first major wedding decision off the list (besides deciding to marry each other, of course) - we've booked our venue! After considering several beautiful options around where I grew up in New Jersey, we selected the Molly Pitcher Inn for its elegant historic feel, its ridiculous yummy food (their brunch is NO JOKE), and for those absolutely gorgeous riverfront views. I'll be sharing our selection process in a future post - it feels so great to be able to picture exactly where we'll start our lives as a married couple!

Long weekend kick-off

What's a long weekend without some splurge food? I started things off on the right foot by meeting up with Pam for some delish margs, chips, and quesadillas. We were both just happy to be able to finally eat outside after months of this gross weather!

Lists, lists, and more lists

There are few things I love more than a good list, and I can already tell that The Knot Book of Wedding Lists is about to become my planning bible. The easy-to-follow format and meticulous attention to detail has already set it apart from the crowd of the many other wedding planning resources out there. Do you have any favorite wedding planning guides?

The great outdoors

What's everyone doing for the long weekend? I'm stretching a bit out of my comfort zone and going hiking! I've been trying to vary my fitness routine and thought this would be a (relatively) easy way to spice things up, though I'm not usually the outdoorsy type...luckily, there are plenty of brunches and happy hours also scheduled this weekend to keep me sane!

Tiny taco truck

After last week's registry pondering, I think I've found the solution...I should pretty much only register for tiny taco trucks like this adorable little guy! I mean, seriously...everything looks better in miniature form, and no one can resist a food truck! Problem solved! :)

Wishing everyone a very relaxing and fun Memorial Day weekend!

Cheers to AprilAmandaJennieKarliRebecca, Katie, HeatherAndrea, and Tif for hosting today's link-ups!
