Tuesday Already?

It does not seem possible that this week is already here and that Monday has already come and gone.  This is the week that my hubby and I travel to Chicago so he can go before his PhD panel at DePaul.  It also means that I have to get my house in order, go shopping for clothes and supplies and get us both packed.  I was meaning to post some pictures of my latest jewelry creations last night but instead was out late shopping for some last minute items. :)
My mom also had a day off from work yesterday and invited me to go see that new movie, "Life as We Know It" with Katherine Heigl and Josh Dumel.  It was a nice chick flick that had me crying one moment and laughing the next. While I like Josh Dumel and he did a great job in the movie, afterwards I could not help but think how Matthew McConaughey might have been just a bit better and definitely better to look at. (Hubba Hubba!) :)
Anyway, I do have pictures of the two rings I most recently made.  They are both sterling silver and while I would love to have some diamonds to play with, I opted for cubic zirconia instead for the first ring and I just used some swarovski crystals on the second ring.
Ring 1:
Ring 2:
I realize that the photos are a bit blurry.  I am still in need of a good camera and Christmas will be here soon so hopefully I will get one and be able to post some better pics! Overall, these are some of the better photos of jewelry I was able to take with the trusty ole camera phone. I will try to get some better pics taken and if successful will re-post some new images of the rings.  I am sure I will also have some good views of Chicago captured on camera too that I will most definitely share. 
My hubby and I looove Chicago.  It has the best of all worlds... food, shopping, shows and did I mention food?  We are also getting to meet up with my hubby's cousin who he has not seen since they were kids. It is going to be a great rest of the week and getting away for a few days is always nice.  Hopefully I will return with a renewed outlook on my remaining kitchen cabinet doors and the rest of the kitchen list.  
Have a happy rest of the week and weekend!
