*{Fabulous Find}*

I know I have mentioned it before, but I love John Derian!
My friend Wendy has been sweet enough to start my Derian decoupage collection and I just bought my first one myself, I had to, I mean...look at it! It is made from a vintage flash card and I super love it.

I am super excited to get it and even more excited for my living room to get painted so I can hang it!

PS - online ordering now available on the John Derian website - love that!

Office Party

Today after the work day, the NorCal Region threw David (the bossman) and I, a Congratulations party to celebrate David's promotion and me going with him in his new capacity, so kind of a promo for me too! We are staying in the office in the Northern California and will still be around just not as often as in the past. I feel so blessed to work with such great people. We had a wonderful time, ate some yummy food and listened to fun Mariachi music. There was even a Storm Trooper there walking around to take photos with (David is a big Star Wars fan). We definitely felt the love from our coworkers and friends this evening.
Check out this sweet cake modeled after the NorCal Taco Truck (the inside is chocolate cake with a salted carmel icing in between).

In the 'zone

Arizona that is!
I needed a little break, so I flew to Mom and Dad's house early on Thursday morning and arrived by 8:30 AM.

It was already about 85 degrees at that hour, but I kinda like it. We have just been hanging out and taking little half day excursions. On Thursday we went to Scottsdale and walked around a bit.
As most of you know, I love my turquoise jewelry and seem to always wear at least one piece of the gorgeous blue stone so I had to control myself while browsing the shops in Scottsdale but one ring made me cave. After figuring out what size I was, we went to get a light lunch and while we sat down, the ring was delivered to our table - how's that for customer service? Pretty amazing.
We stopped at Whole Foods Market in Scottsdale and got some dinner supplies for Dad to make dinner and what a dinner it was...roasted stuffed poblano peppers (vegan of course) and mixed green salad. It was delicious and I have to admit, it was nice to be cooked for. I gorged myself on two of them and went to bed with a full and happy belly.
Friday, I worked half the day and then Mom and I went to Wickenburg to a large western clothing/home store but we left a little disappointed as the row of boots that was shown in the newspaper was a mere fraction of what was photographed. They had more men's than women's stuff but they did have cool home finishings. Mom got some Wranglers and we kept on driving. We fell upon a super cool antique store called Quarter Horse Antiques and their sister store Smith and Western. This store was kind of like a dream come true, cool old rusty fun things outside and so many old treasures on the inside (no photos allowed). There was everything from old Navajo jewelry to folk art items. I did find something really fantastic and rare - a handmade copper Rag-Dung (Tibetan Ceremonial Horn). It is a great decorative piece and I love it!

Today we are just hanging out. The temp has reached 104 today and headed up to 111 tomorrow. My Mom and I did run some errands to get a Father's Day gift and some dinner supplies. We have been eating really well last night we had my veggie burgers, steak fries and salad and tonight...roasted veggies and polenta. Hope you all have a great weekend.
