Friday Favorites: The End of Intern Year

Happy Friday, friends! This is a glorious Friday as my love is finally finished with intern year! All I want to do is dance around our place (let’s ignore the fact that I can’t do that physically right now, shall we?)

Of course, I have to start off my favorites with how excited I am that intern year is over! As sad as I am that our time in Chicago is coming to a close, I am so glad Christopher gets a few weeks to relax (other than moving and packing) before he starts radiology.

Y’all know how much I love Chicago food, so I was excited to have something to celebrate this week. We had tapas at CafĂ© Ba-Ba-Reeba, and they were so delicious! I was a huge fan of the white peach sangria, handmade beef empanadas, meatballs with sherry tomato sauce, and chocolate truffle cake.

Since I’m not feeling well, my parents are picking Skyler and me up next weekend, so I don’t have to ride in the moving truck. I’m bummed Christopher and I aren’t moving home together, but my father-in-law is helping him drive, so it will work out best.

I’m loving Old Navy shorts this season. I got these gingham blue shorts recently, and they’re so cute and comfy. (affiliate link)

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a photo of Skyler, so today seemed like a good day to do it!

Linking up with AmandaKarli, and the High Five for Friday girls.

Hope y'all have a wonderful weekend! 


  1. Those shorts look really nice! And so does that food. I bet you'll miss chicago food!

  2. Awweee, Skyler is the cutest! I'm glad you won't have to ride in the moving truck- that would really be no fun for you :( Enjoy your hubby's few weeks off!!

  3. Skyler looks adorable!! Yay for intern year being done and over with!! I have yet to make it over to Cafe Ba-Ba-Reeba, but have heard nothing but amazing things and hopefully get a chance to go there before I leave!

  4. Aww Skyler is so cute!!! That food looks amazing I've actually never been to a tapas restaurant but I should change that.

  5. Skylar is seriously so cute! That sucks that y'all aren't going to make the drive back to Texas together, but I couldn't imagine how much that drive would suck, especially when you're not feeling better. That's great that Christopher is getting a chance to relax before starting in radiology!

  6. That grub looks yummy & your pupper looks adorable! :)

    Have a good last weekend in the Midwest!

  7. That food looks so so good! Good luck with the move!

  8. I love Tapas! So yummy and a fun option for date night! Those Old Navy shorts are cute, too. I haven't been into Old Navy in a few months, I'll have to check it out. They're always a great place for summer clothes. Best of luck to you with your move & next chapter.

  9. Those Old Navy shorts are so cute. Are you guys headed back to Texas. It will be nice to get back and settling and so you can get well!!
