Fall is upon us and I could not be more excited for the cool, brisk mornings and evenings complete with pumpkin everything.  This is hands down my favorite time of year.  I’m not sure if it is the cool weather or the fact that Halloween has always represented the beginning of the Holiday Season for me, but I am beyond pumped for leggings as pants, boots and scarves, tall cozy socks, Halloween, and snuggling (sans sweat…as we all know how I can be a hot sweaty mess…)!

Cinco de Mayo Tacos & Margs!

In the spirit of Cinco de Mayo, along with my best friend Cameron’s fiesta-themed engagement party on Saturday, one of mine and B’s absolute favorite home meals is tacos!

I thought I’d share our ‘how to’ for a fun and festive at-home taco bar.  It is super easy and can be entertaining, yet simple.  We have come to really enjoy the Old El Paso Taco Dinner Kit that you can pick up at most local grocery stores.  It typically comes with 10 shells, taco sauce, and seasoning mix – all you are responsible for is meat and toppings.
