High Low High 22

Hi, guys!

How was your weekend? Overall, ours was really nice. We definitely had a mix of highs and lows, so I thought I’d use the old “High Low High” recap style to share its highlights. Plus, I haven’t written a High Low High post since July! Ok, here we go!

HIGH: Taking the ferry into Boston with friends for a fun (parents) night out. I had never done it before, and it was such a convenient way to get into the city during rush hour.

LOW: Barely surviving the ferry ride. I get seasick fairly easily and the water was pretty choppy. Oy. I made it shore, but, whoa, I was ready to get off the boat.

HIGH: Enjoying a tasty dinner at Carmelina’s in the North End. Yummm!


HIGH: Seeing David Gray in concert. Mal and I are long-time fans, so we were so excited to see him again.

LOW: Missing more than half of the David Gray concert. Wahhhh. We didn’t realize he was opening for Alison Krauss. I mean, when did David Gray become an opener?! We heard a few songs, but, man, we were definitely bummed.

HIGH: Making the best of the evening with our friends, staying out late, and acting like we were 22 again. Good times!

Wearing: Pacaya Insulated Hooded Jacket (super warm + cozy) // Hunter Gloss Rain Boots

HIGH: Having a much more low-key Saturday, which kicked-off with a workout at CrossFit. 

LOW: Mal being diagnosed with bronchitis. He wasn’t feel great, but he thought he was well enough for a workout. After CrossFit, he felt awful, so he stopped by the Minute Clinic for a quick check. Poor guy. We laid low for the rest of the day and all went to bed early that night.

HIGH: Going to Legoland on Sunday morning! Quinn has been obsessed with it ever since the last time we went, so we started a countdown to the big day a little over a week ago.

HIGH: Loving every second of our Legoland adventures and the grabbing brunch outside at River Bar afterward. What a great little Sunday!

Comment of the Week

Mark, you put ‘get yourself a little butane torch’ immediately after warning ‘you will fart.’ You had to expect our brains to put those two things together in a rather predictable and childish fashion…

– I was hoping for and expecting it, Rambler.
