Hi, guys!

It’s Sunday afternoon. Qman is still napping, and I’m waiting for Mal to come home after him being away since Friday morning. Quinn, Murphy, and I had a nice weekend together, but, once again, it was a mix of highs and lows for us. With that in mind, a High Low High post seemed like the perfect way to recap. If you’re unfamiliar with this blog post series, I recap the high and low points of the weekend. Ok, here we go!

HIGH: Celebrating “Donut Friday” with a treat from The Coffee Shack.

Qman and I shared a honey dip donut. Mmm! 🙂

LOW: Breaking out in a rash all over my body. *sigh* I assume it’s from the antibiotics that I was taking for my knee. When I was a kid, I had a reaction (rash) to penicillin, so I’ve avoided it since then. I told this to the doctor at Urgency Care, so she prescribed a different antibiotic, but I guess I’m allergic to that one too. Ugh. I really wish my body would get it together. (FYI: I contacted the on-call doctor at MGH, and she told me to stop the antibiotics and take some Benadryl.)

HIGH: Having a FUN afternoon with Quinn at Jungle Jakes! It was our first time there, and Qman had an absolute blast! We’ll definitely be back!

LOW: Murphy acting all freaked out as soon as we went to bed on Friday night. He didn’t bark, but he was whining to go downstairs. I brought him down and then he ran around the house like he was looking for something. I double-checked all of the doors and made sure they were locked, but I still felt uneasy and didn’t sleep well. I wonder what he heard??

HIGH: Getting Marylou’s iced coffee! We still live close to a location, but it’s not a drive-thru or on the way to anything, so I hardly go anymore. I was really pumped to have my beloved White Chocolate Chip after so many months without!

LOW: Sitting in SO MUCH TRAFFIC on the way to my sister’s house on Saturday morning. Blahhhhhhh. I have no patience when it comes to traffic.

HIGH: Hanging out with my sister, brother-in-law, and Quinn’s cousins!

And, of course, Murphy and Batman too!

Quinn loved Matthew’s toy drill and pretty much used it the entire time we were there!

LOW: Coming home to a laundry detergent mess. Whomp whomp. Mal did laundry before he left on his trip and apparently forgot to close the detergent bottle all the way.

IMG_9761 (719x1280)

HIGH: Taking the jogging stroller out for a run! I’ve barely worked out lately, so it felt really great to break a sweat! I did 30 minutes of 200 meter sprints with my “coach” yelling “more, more!” from the stroller after each one. So much for rest intervals! 🙂


During my run, I also got to test out my new Ravenna 7, which are super supportive and really comfy. I want to run in them a few more times before I give you guys a full review, but my first experience was definitely a great one! (FYI: The Ravenna 6 is on sale right now for just $70!)


LOW: Taking Benadryl before bed, but then waking up on Sunday morning with a rash that was 10 times worse. Awesome.

HIGH: Having a play date with friends at the South Shore Children’s Museum!

Captain Quinn had an awesome time!

HIGH: Stopping by the Minute Clinic at CVS/pharmacy and getting an appointment right away. And Quinn was really well-behaved during it! #momwin

LOW: The NP on staff not being able to do much for me. She said my rash definitely looked like a drug allergy reaction, but because I didn’t have a fever and it wasn’t bothering me all that much (it’s only a little itchy), she said to just stick to Benadryl and wait it out. Ugh. It looks disgusting.

HIGH: Making a delicious, super simple treat with Cheerios + Vanilla Cake Batter Coconut Butter. It’s just 1 cup of Cheerios mixed with 1 melted tablespoon of coconut butter, 1 tsp honey, and 1 tsp of mini chocolate chips. Then, just pop it in the fridge until the coconut butter is firm. A 1/2 cup serving is only 125 calories and the macros are pretty good too (P: 2 C: 16 F: 7). I ate like 500 batches this weekend! 🙂
