cornflake dreams.: good things.


good things.

happy monday! i hope all of you had a wonderful weekend. we stuck to most of our plans but we didn't make it to the field museum. i forgot it was football sunday and that translates into a very lazy sunday :) 

-my friday girl-date was just lovely...however i was had a hard time keeping quiet during the artist. meh.. i think i got the gist of it. 
-the opera in millennium park was wonderful and v. relaxing. mental note: must try to attend at least one more concert in the park before the end of the season.
-it feels like fall and i'm READY for it. bring on the boots, scarves, sweaters and jackets. 
-grilled cheese + tomato soup is pretty delicious stuff -- why don't i eat this more often?! 
- there is a target opening soon that is ginarmous AND within biking distance from our condo. we took a quick trip to check it out on saturday and i am psyched. so was the man rolling by on his skateboard yelling "it's almost here! TARGETTTTTT!" :) 
-we finished the weekend with pizza (whootwhoot PAPA JOHNS!) at my father-in-laws and looked at our wedding photos (again). thank you all for your sweet comments on our sneak peek shots! i can't wait to share more.
-my september houzz board is up! this month it's all about picks for an industrial kitchen.
