Our Mini Linky Party | Week 146

Happy Saturday!

Oh man, we sure are glad the week is over! It was a really crazy week and Adam got the worst of it. He has been dealing with quite a lot this week (a bunch of which I don't want to talk about here because it is not really my place to in indulge in those details and speak on his behalf in a public way), but just know that we have both had a tough week and we're happy that today kicks off a new  week that should bring more positivity and hope!

Adam and I decided we are staying in for Halloween this year and just going to hand out our little stickers, spider rings, and Halloween toys to our trick-or-treaters and keep it low-key this year. In the past, we'd like to dress up in a couple's costume and go out to Tempe for a bar crawl. But this past month, we have dealt with enough spooky and scary things (and far too much stressful adulting) that we've had enough frights for this year's Halloween holiday and don't feel like we need to go out on Halloween night for a crazy time. I did find some fun/creepy masks for us to wear at the dollar store, so we have something fun to wear when the kiddos ring our doorbell! 

This weekend, I am working on getting settled a little bit more in our condo. We finally got a dining room table and chairs this week, and we also invested in our first-ever brand new couch! Man, I had no idea how much brand new furniture cost--it is expensive! I'm so used to buying second-hand that I had a real case of sticker shock when I drove down to the furniture store to pick out a sofa for our living room! But we bit the bullet and ate the costs just the same. We are in dire need of a couch and a  comfortable living room (sitting on the floor watching Netflix just wasn't going to cut it anymore!)
