Navy Dress

Pardon my absence.  I am a workin' girl again!
I wore this dress to church last week.  It was nice and warm when I left the house and when I walked out of church, it started snowing.  The same thing happened to me today as well...I had to run upstairs and dig out some sweaters to deal with this crazy spring weather.

Spring Stripes

I have been so busy lately despite the fact that I have not even started my job yet!  So much resume/cover letter writing, essays, application for grad school, as well as two prerequisite classes I am taking online.   I officially start work Monday (YAY!) but have been so glad to have some time off to get things done!

This past week my in-laws visited for a few days, which was quite a bit of fun.  We were able to meet our new nephew as well as take the family sight seeing around the area.

It's hard to tell if it's Spring or Winter here....
The moment I decide that I'm going to pack away my Winter clothes, it snows and visa-versa. 
Maybe the weather will make up it's mind soon!

El Sanctuario de Chimayo

Ok, ok....I have been slacking on the outfit posts, but this place was too amazing not to share!  When my mom was visiting a couple weeks back we went to El Sanctuario de Chimayo.  Last year, I noticed hundreds of people walking along the interstate and highway during holy week. When I arrived home and researched what was going on, I found that they were making a pilgrimage to this place.  

Legend says that during Holy Week, Abeyta saw a light shining from the hillside and dug the crucifix up with his bare hands. He turned it over to Fr. Álvarez, who took it to the Santa Cruz church, but the crucifix mysteriously returned to the spot where Abeyta found it. After the third time this happened, Álvarez and Abeyta decided to build a chapel on the spot to house the crucifix. 

The town of Chimayo, NM has tons of amazing weavers who use wool to create rugs, jackets, purses, ect.   While visiting Chimayo, I bought a handwoven purse that is so unique and the colors are amazing.

 The past week I have literally been sitting around the house waiting for my temporary OT license to come in the mail so I can start working my new job.  It has been driving me nuts to have so much free time after the past year of having almost zero free time.  Trying hard to enjoy myself...

I love this cardigan sweater from H&M! I purchased it a while back for around $10...the pictures don't do it justice, it received many complements.

Ghost Ranch

My mom came to visit this past week to help celebrate graduating and finding a job (I still have a few days before I start my job).  We decided to go hiking in Ghost Ranch in Abiquiu, NM.  I love this place, I have driven through it quite a few times but never took the time to stop and hike around.  The colors are amazing!

Jeweled Collar

I am officially DONE with fieldwork!!
I was also officially offered a (part-time) job today finishing out the school year as a therapist in the schools where I was completing my fieldwork.  I'm glad they like me enough to keep me around!! 

I wore this outfit out Saturday for my end of school celebration night and for an early Valentine's Day dinner with the Mr.  It was a great night!
