Somewhere in New Mexico


I’m learning all about life in New Mexico. You see, I’m a Texan. Ask me about weird-assed random Texas facts — state bird? Got it. Name the major players of the Alamo? I can. 8 years of Texas history, y’all. 

Now I’m being educated about a whole new state of being.

For instance, did y’all know that the Palace of the Governors in Santa Fe is the oldest government building in the country?

Or that Doc Holliday was a dentist in Las Vegas, New Mexico (also, our Las Vegas is apparently older than the one in Nevada, also, they have a neat KOA)?

I know, neat stuff, huh?

I’m in the middle of chile season (omg, wear gloves when peeling). I have only recently come into the joy that is green chile. Part of me still misses the red, but the wife is a green girl, all the way. 

Hence the green chile pumpkin soup of doom.


Much love, y’all.

It's cool when you get to learn about new places!

And I'm still not sold on green chiles, but I do like them in some things.

HA HA OMG I learned the hard way about gloves /o\ Made guac with jalapeno's (numerous times & never had ANY problems) but ONE TIME I got the oil on my face and it took HOURS to wear off :(((( So gloves all the now baby LOL
