The Friday Five, 3/29/19: 5 things I've been up to this week

This has been a busy week—I got back from Chicago around 10:30pm last night and got home around 11:30pm, so I'm pretty tired today.

What I've been up to this week:
  1. Traveling. I was in Chicago from Tuesday through Thursday for ProFood Tech, a food processing/technology conference, for work. It ended up being a lot more laid-back than the last conference I went to (PACK EXPO, one of the biggest conferences in the United States), so that was nice. I also had some good meals while there and stayed at a nice hotel (Hyatt Place River North). 
  2. Going out to eat. Besides my Chicago meals, last Friday my boyfriend and a friend and I went to Parc, in Detroit—I had been to a Yelp event there a while back with that same friend, and they gave us both $50 gift certificates to use, which were expiring 3/31, so we wanted to use it before it expired. Parc is very nice and all of the food was pretty good, as well. On Saturday, I went to Blaze Pizza with my parents, too.
  3. Seeing movies. I'm excited to see Dumbo in IMAX later today at AMC Livonia, and last Sunday I put on my big girl pants and went to see Us—I normally hate horror movies and Jordan Peele, its director, classified it as horror more so than thriller. However, I'd say it's more of a thriller, with some horror elements, and I really enjoyed it—I was thinking about it for a few days afterwards. I'd give it 4 out of 5 stars.
  4. Doing taxes. I finally saw my accountant last Saturday and gave him all of my paperwork, so hopefully I'll be hearing back from the state/federal soon (and hopefully with a refund...). 
  5. Binging a new TV show. Last week I watched Shrill, on Hulu, and really liked it. I still need to catch up on the newest season of The OA, too (Netflix), and also Santa Clarita Diet, which I believe premiered today.
