cornflake dreams.: five on friday.

five on friday.

Happy Friday! I am linking up with ChristinaAprilNatasha and Darci for Five on Friday: 

ONE: Persian Food + Family. My parents are visiting on Saturday and we are going out to dinner with my father-in-law to one of our favorite Persian restaurants. I'm excited for my parents try my new favorite food! 


TWO: It is WARMING up in Chicago -- it was in the 80's this week! I am so excited for summer, sandals and lots of bike rides.

THREE: Ellington Handbags. I got an Ellington Mia tote bag in olive green for Christmas a few years ago and ever since I have been a huge fan. I bought the Mia Crossbody purse last year and it is the my favorite bag for traveling. And a few months ago I decided I really wanted the Mia tote in black. I checked the website and I couldn't find it online (wah-wah). I emailed a customer service rep and they told me that the were discontinuing the bag (noooo) but they had a few left... SOLD! When you love a brand you stick with them! (and psst the Mia tote is no longer available on Ellignton's website but I found a few on Amazon). 

FOUR: There are a few days left to enter my Rikshaw Design giveaway -- I will announce a winner on Monday.

FIVE: It's h's birthday on Monday -- so I have a few surprises planned for the next few days. 

Have a great weekend!
