Howdy! After being at the fair yesterday with farm animals and cowboy boots I felt the need to say “Howdy” today! 🙂 Jon and I had a great time at the fair! The best part is always the food and we weren’t disappointed this year either. We went to the Iowa Pork Tent for BBQ pulled pork sandwiches and they were the perfect combination of sweet and tangy! Then we headed over to a little stand that sells chocolate chip cookies fresh out of the oven with tall glasses of ice cold milk. Y-U-M-M-O!

So it’s back to reality today with no warm chocolate chip cookies coming out of my oven. But I did get to feast my eyes on some of the fabulous eye candy from the TESC123 sketch challenge! So many amazing entries… here are this week’s Top Crops:

Congratulations (from left to right): LuAnn, Cindy, Billie, Nancy, and Amy!
