5 On Friday ... End of May Version!

Friday! Friday! Friday!
(Can you tell I'm excited?)

Linky time again, ya'll!  If you haven't participated yet, what are you waiting for?  Jump on in!

Here's what I'm loving this Friday.

{1} Fun family times ahead.
Our family has already put several dates on the calendar for get-togethers ... and this makes me so happy.  It's pretty obvious that we all get together quite frequently and that we really enjoy each other's company.  My middle sister and her boyfriend are in NYC, though, so we don't get to see them too often.  I already know of three times this summer that we'll be able to hang out with them!

{2} The thought of a Pepperoncini Tini.
Am I crazy?  Because I think this looks awesome.  Okay -- maybe not alongside just any dish, but what about grilled chicken that has been marinated in a Greek vinaigrette?  And served with a white bean, feta, and kalamata olive side dish?  Are ya with me now?

{3} Real Simple magazine
The past two Christmases, Mom has gifted me a year-long subscription to this magazine.  I'm positively obsessed.  They have the best articles, the best recipes, the most lovely photographs and style advice.  I get giddy each month when I see it in my mail stack!

{4} Blisters no' mo'.
This trick works!  Like, really works!  I purchased the cutest pair of Nine West patent nude leather flats ... pointy toe with a big ol' bow on each toe ... and I was nervous that wearing them to work would end disasterously.  Before heading to work, I tried this trick, and it really helped to reshape them in a way that I ended up blister-free. 

{5} Let's catch some rays!
Bring on the sun, bring on the wide-brimmed hats, bring on the beach reads.  This girl is ready for some Vitamin D!

Tag, YOU my friend are next.  Enter the link-up here!
