Wedding Weekend in Michigan Part 1

This weekend was one of those weekends that went by waaaay too fast! On Wednesday night, Jon and I flew back to Michigan to see my friends Danielle and Nate get married.

Lyssy’s Eats: Black Tap NYC

I saw Black Tap on Instagram and was mesmerized by the outrageous looking milkshakes. My sister Kris went there when she visited NYC and sent me some drool worthy snaps. I knew that Jon and I had to go the next time I was in NYC.   The weather was pretty terrible, it was rain/snowing…
