Well, as you'll be able to tell from the daily pics, September can be best described as high-highs and low-lows. It was a real roller coaster.
We had finally found THE house. We fell really hard for it. It was cute, extremely well maintained, had a great gut-feeling to it, perfect location, and was in our budget. We put in an offer and had insane butterflies for 2 or 3 days. Ultimately, they wanted a 2nd offer and ours was outbid. I'm still really sad about it, but we learned a TON in that week. A ton.
I had the pleasure of attending an incredible bridal shower for the sweetest and most deserving girl. The venue, food and company were all just awesome. :)
The hubs and I celebrated our 1 year anniversary with dinner at 'our' place in Rutherford, Paisanos, and walking around after, discovered Mason's Cellar. A totally awesome wine/beer/liq store with amazing decor, cool tchotchkes and an impressive booze collection. The location is actually an old bank so the building is lovely, and they even put the really elite wines in the bank's original vault!
It was a really nice night, and one that we really needed after the ups and downs of the week. We received the sweetest gifts from our parents/in-laws, and were once again, reminded how blessed we are with our amazing families.
The following week we had a ticket scare but it worked out and for the third time we saw the amazing, Local Natives @ Term.5. As a couple, prob 'our' favorite band. It was awesome.
Finished out the month with yucky colds (thank you tissue-terrorizing-church-children!), awesome homemade soup, a near-death-by-dog-maul-experience, a serious decline in ice-cream/yogurt consumption, wrapping up Breaking Bad and me losing an entire evening getting sucked in to the movie, Moneyball.
Tunage: Wild Nothing (opened for Local Natives and loved 'em), old albums by Gorillaz (perfect for designing to) drawing a blank on notable others.
p.s. The leaves are turning and its so pretty i can hardly stand it!
