Fall is on the Horizon

Again this year I am resisting the urge to transform our house into an autumn wonderland until October 1st. We got a new AC unit last week so our house has been cooler than usual which I think makes my brain think it is cooler outside than it actually is; I wish I could have tricked my brain back in June & July when every day the temperature was over 100! I also have 3 magazine subscriptions (Martha Stewart Living, Southern Living, & The Food Network) which all 3 arrived last week with pumpkins, apples, red/yellow leaved pictures, cider recipes…blah blah blah you get the idea. Needless to say, I’m finding it hard to resist my favorite season. I believe that fall officially starts this week so I can enjoy my "favoritest" season soon!
This is a picture of fall in good ‘ole Richmond, VA. This was the last time I was home for autumn :-( Isn’t it gorgeous though?! Really can you blame me for loving this season? I think not hehe
We have been to our fair share of Mexican/Tex-Mex restaurants in the past few years, but El Tiempo Cantina takes first prize. We went there for dinner on Saturday night & it was beyond fantastic; we highly recommend it! I could NOT keep my fingers away from the chips & salsa verde. The meals appear to be pricy at first, but for the cost you are really getting your next 3 meals because there is so much to take home. Do yourself a favor and check it out; we promise you won’t regret it!

I have recently mentioned my new love (or obsession) with Costco to several family members & friends; on Saturday we became members! Yesterday I filled up my gas tank at Costco & I saved 16 cents a gallon…..I repeat, I SAVED 16 CENTS PER GALLON!!!!! Amazing! I really am overly-excited about this membership. With Costco practically in my backyard, I think it’s really going to be hard to make me move now!

Have a great last few days of summer and welcome to fall!
xoxo,

You can have Costco in practically in your backyard if you move back to Richmond! Jordan and I go to it every weekend and it only takes about 5 minutes to get there. We would love to have you closer!

Woah woah woah! That is crazy talk...take it back, Darby! I don't like that one bit! I am obsessed with Costco/Sam's but I am still not a member but strangely I have been looking forward to the day I will finally become a member of one! haha So happy for you!

P.S. I thought Winter was your favoritest season?

Winter used to be my favorite season; it's still a very very close second. I never truly appreciated fall until I didn't have it anymore. For years I missed out, so I'm making up for it now and appreciating it more!
