Of course, Mal and I took this little guy with us:
On the drive, we took at pit-stop at Starbucks to grab a couple of iced soy lattes. Mal ordered peppermint; I ordered pumpkin.
Fun times in the car!
A little while later, we arrived at my mom’s new house. Mal hadn’t visited yet, so my mom gave him a tour of the place. Mal liked it a lot. Murphy did too! 😀
Then, we checked out the backyard.
Murphy had a blast running around and sniffing new smells. At one point, the pug felt a bit adventurous and ran into the neighbor’s yard, so Mal went to retrieve him.
The next stop of the day was Mal’s parents’ house. Luckily, they live about 10 minutes away from my mom! 😀
Murphy loves Funny Farm!
Mal and I decided to get rid of almost all of our Ikea furniture to make way for “new” stuff that we plan to refurbish ourselves. We both like rustic/antique-y/country decor, so we figured we could save some serious money and give ourselves some fun home projects by using old furniture from the barn. Plus, Mal’s parents were more than happy for us to take it off their hands!
Mal and I found LOTS of goodies! 😀
Most of the pieces require a lot of work, but I think we can do it!
Eventually, we hit the road back to Boston.
On the drive, I ordered a pizza with mushrooms, peppers, and black olives to pick-up for dinner. As soon as we got home, I wolfed down three pieces.
And a Peanut Butter Cup cupcake.
Not even an hour later, I headed out the door to a friend’s Halloween party. While there, I drank three Shipyard Pumpkinhead beers.
And ate a zillion potato chips.
I stink at taking photos at parties, so these were the only two that I snapped. Even still, I had a great time!
Thankfully, I have a low-key Sunday today! 😀
