Where have I been?

My sis and I went to a Carrie Underwood concert over the weekend. These are our steppin' out shoes as we lounge on the grass before we left for the concert. We had a great time! Gosh, that girl can sing!!! (Don't you love my sister's cowboy boots?!?! Now I sooooo want a pair of cowboy boots.)

DH got crafty for Father's Day. He made this caduceus for his dad. DH designed it, carved it out of wood using a knife and his handy Dremel and then painted it. In the end he mounted it on a solid block of wood to serve as a stand and put his dad's name on the base. It was so darn cool. Now, I soooo want him to make me one of these for my office. DH also made a '67 Corvette model for my dad...my dad LOVES corvettes and likes to make models too (in his office he has a whole curio cabinet of model cars) so this was super sweet for my hubby to do this for my dad. We had a great Father's Day - all the family over for a cookout with DH's yummy and famous burgers.

I couldn't resist whipping up a couple of new button hair elastics. With all the hot weather and all the time I have been spending at work lately (it is crazy right now and I always have my hair back at work) I needed a few new hair accessories. It is so satisfying to use up some fabric scraps and complete a project quickly.

I can't get enough of this Strawberry Poppyseed Salad from Panera Bread lately. It is everything summer should be.
With work being crazy as it is right now, the weather being as nice and hot as it is right now and me being the procrastinator that I am right now (I have a BIG presentation next week for work and I haven't even started yet) I will probably be popping in less this week. Perhaps I should do a week in pictures or something so I can still blog but it could be quick to fit in my schedule right now. I'll think about it...
