How do I wear those Big Slouchy Sweaters?

How do I wear those Big Slouchy Sweaters?

This new trend with sweaters this year may seem just a little much if your used to those clean-line, form fitting knits from last year.  We've put together a few looks on ways to wear these comfy and oh-so-cozy knits.
One Pant Four Ways

One Pant Four Ways

We took one navy blue pant and showed it four different ways. This classic navy blue Tribal pull on pant, sells for only $62.00, travels beautifully and is wrinkle resistant. Check out the look book called "Four Ways to Wear Navy". 

We styled this pant as the Perfect Day at the Office to Happy Hour the Casual Weekender or a Day in the City. We love this versatile pant.

Bucket List Adventures

Bucket List Adventures

As I continue to fulfill my husband's bucket list, this year we traveled to Birmingham, Alabama to attend the Nascar Talledega race.  Car races to me have always been about fast cars, food, and beer, and this one did not disappoint.  We traveled with good friends, which made it even better and had great weather.  If you ever have a chance to go to Birmingham, Alabama give it a try.  It is beautiful and green, plus I think they send everyone who lives there to charm school.  The staff at RaceAway Hospitality was top notch and The Embassy Suites, Hoover, was more than accommodating.

Jalapeño Cream Sauce

Jalapeño Cream Sauce

Here in New Mexico salsa and red chile lovers are called "pepper bellies" - we are connoisseurs of chile.  New Mexico is a large producer of of this savory fruit, so the next time you buy a canned or bottled sauce check and see where the chile came from. Chile, in reference to food (not the country), refers to a capsicum pepper, specifically a spicy pepper and even more specifically, the green and red type chile peppers grown throughout New Mexico.  Some Texas chili recipes use chili powder as the seasoning, while others use chiles with herbs and spices.

Today I am sharing my favorite creamy sauce recipe.  For years I thought it was made with avocado until my friend Jaimie shared shared the recipe she uses.  Enjoy everyone.
