Yesterday I shamelessly carried a roll of toliet paper from the bathroom back to my desk.

I didn't have allergies for most of my life - however, I think I am hitting the jackpot now.  Ugh.  

The past few days have been yucky - coughing, sneezing, running nose, scratchy throat. 


Dan has always had allergies, so he is weirdly happy that I now get to join in his misery.  After both coughing and sneezing, we take turns "shhshhing" each other to not wake Ina.  

Could someone please send a lifetime supply of tissues to our house?  

I tried to run yesterday with Ina, but soon found that I couldn't breathe, so I called it at 2.5 miles.

Today I am taking an extra rest day - and any medication I can find that doesn't cross into breast milk.  

Because I can't let a second of my life go without being captured on the blog - on Sunday my family met to celebrate my niece (weird to say - still getting used to Matt and Cindy being married!) Jayelin's birthday.  Here are a few pictures:

(Hi Amanda!)

I love birthday parties - an extra day to have the family around. 


Breakfast - my first smoothie of the season!  In the mix: 1.5 frozen bananas, 2 handfuls of spinach, 1 C frozen berries, 1/2 C Greek yogurt, 1 C skim milk, 1 T peanut butter.

This baby kept me full until lunch.

Lunch - cottage cheese and fresh pineapple with a sweet potato that I stuck in the microwave

Snack - handful of mixed nuts 

Dinner - buffalo chicken and potato casserole following *this recipe*

  1. My allergies have been horrible down here, too! Every day I get pollen alerts on my phone. I'm so sick of blowing my nose. :\

  2. 2.5 miles while barely breathing normally? I call that success!
