Book Club Monday

This week's Book Club Monday choice is one that is next on my list, My Husband's Wife: A Novel by Jane Corry.  This book has been labeled as "Winter's Must Read Thriller"!!!!!!!!!!   The story goes like this:

When young lawyer Lily marries Ed, she’s determined to make a fresh start. To leave the secrets of the past behind. But then she takes on her first murder case and meets Joe. A convicted murderer whom Lily is strangely drawn to. For whom she will soon be willing to risk almost anything. 

But Lily is not the only one with secrets. Her next-door neighbor Carla may be only nine, but she has already learned that secrets are powerful things. That they can get her whatever she wants.

When Lily finds Carla on her doorstep sixteen years later, a chain of events is set in motion that can end only one way.  Summary Amazon.com

Easiest Ever Orange Chicken

I still receive so many requests for quick week night family dinners that can be made in the crock pot. I saw this recipe on Pinterest and knew I had to share it with you.  This seems like such a no brainier and a total crowd pleaser.  Bon Appetit!!!!!

PS: I have partnered with a bunch of bloggers to bring you a HUGE giveaway on Instagram starting tonight....don't forget to check it OUT

Recipe Adapted from Listotic

4 chicken breasts
3/4 cup BBQ sauce
3/4 cup Sweet Orange Marmalade
2 TBSP Soy Sauce

Cut 3-4 chicken breasts into bite sized pieces and cook them in the cock pot on low for 2 hours.  
While the chicken is cooking, mix together BBQ sauce, Marmalade and Soy Sauce until well blended.
After 2 hours drain the chicken juices from the crock pot and pour the sauce mixture in the crock pot with the chicken.  Cook on low for an additional 2 hours (you may need to add more time if the chicken is not cooked through).  The sauce thickens as it cools.

Serve with rice and broccoli on the side.

Flared Sleeves

The one trend I see that is still going strong is flared sleeves.
Whether it be on sweaters, blouses or dresses, 
exaggerated sleeves are all around.  
There are so many great options out there.  
The flared sleeve top looks fabulous with the 
cropped flare pant.  With all of the available options, 
why not add one to your wardrobe.  You will be 
happy that you did!!!

Say YES to the Dress!!!!!

I recently was contacted by an incredible special occasion dress company in the UK called Aisle Style.  I thought since Wedding, School Dance and Religious event season is almost upon us, it would be the perfect time to introduce you to this incredible dress shop.  I am always looking for new places to shop that are unique and will have special pieces that you will not see coming and going all over town.  Aisle Style is just that, it has a huge outstanding selection of Designer Bridesmaid Dresses, long and short Prom Dresses and the most adorable Communion Dresses.   Are you looking for something special this season?  How about wedding dresses or dresses or wear to weddings?   Aisle Style is the place for you.  How about Homecoming dresses?  There is a great selection.  Even for Brides Maids dresses for 2017, all colors are covered.  Don't forget about Junior and Senior proms or Graduations either.  There are pages and pages of gorgeous dresses to choose from and most styles can be made in a variety of colors!

I love this for a prom.  The illusion top is so pretty!

This is so Oscar De La Renta!

I am thinking of ordering this to wear to my niece's wedding..now just to figure to what color!!!

I love the shape and color of this halter dress!

This is just so simple and elegant and I love the purple!!!

A one shoulder dress always looks gorgeous!!!!

I would love this dress to have in my closet...I can think of so many places to wear it.  I love the jewel tone!

This is my absolute favorite dress...it reminds me of the one Carrie wore in Paris the night Big came to find her to profess his love for her!!!!!  Swoon!!!!!
