cornflake dreams.: five on friday.

five on friday.

Happy Friday!! I have a busy weekend with a lot of plans that revolve around food (bring it on!) I also have these five things on my mind and linking up with Christina, April, Natasha and Darci for Five on Friday:
ONE: H graduates from residency today! His ceremony is today and we're going out to dinner with the other residents to celebrate tomorrow night. Now that he has accepted the fellowship position he is just one year away from practicing full-time. I am SO proud of him and everything he has accomplished, it'll all be worth it when he is done :)
TWO: If you follow me on instagram you might have noticed I have been doing some very touristy things this week (hello Navy Pier!) H's aunt visited from Iran and his dad was determined to show her around the city during her quick trip (she is now on her way to the East Coast to visit other relatives). She was so sweet and I was impressed with h's farsi skills, his fluency in the language makes me want want to learn more than three words!
THREE: I did a little shopping on minted last week and got a few personalized things: birthday and christmas gift tags, a notebook, and notecards for h (he needed something nice for interview thank you notes). After I placed the order I was nervous that it wouldn't be delivered before our move in two weeks. I got everything yesterday - that's crazy fast for personalized products! 
FOUR: Orange is the New Black is back!! Are you a fan of the show? Normally I love to do TV marathons with Netflix shows, but with just two weeks left in Chicago I'm not sure I'll have time to watch all of the episodes. I might save a few for rainy days in Charleston.
FIVE: There is still time to enter my Albion Fit giveaway! I will announce a winner on Monday, June 9. After all that restaurant food this week I am looking forward to doing some extra yoga this weekend.


Have a great weekend!
