Friday Fascinations: 5 "Good" Things!

TGIF my friends!  Today, I am linking up with Mar, Courtney and Cynthia for the Friday Five Link Up!

The theme is 5 "Good" Things so I thought I would share with you 5 good things from the last week!  I am also linking up with Jill Conyers for her Fitness Friday!

1.  The SUPER awesome shoe stores in San Diego, Movin Shoes, have agreed to co-host a Poker Run benefitting the Epilepsy Foundation on April 9th.  (Check them out if you are ever in San Diego and you can use code SDMOM for $10 of any purchase $50 or more.) Please consider joining us for this event so we can raise LOTS of money for the Foundation.

2.  My cousin turned 40 last week and SDDad and I got to enjoy a Friday evening out on a fancy pants yacht in Newport Beach.  I love a good date night!

3.  On Sunday, I ran the Carlsbad 5000 All Day 20K race.  You can read my recap here.  Spoiler Alert?  I would do it again!

4.  One of the hardest things in the world for me is not seeing my kids nearly enough during the week.  So on Tuesday, SDDad and I had the day off from work for Cesar Chavez Day and we got to walk the kids to school.  It was so much fun!  #itsthelittlethings

5.  And because of above mentioned day off, SDDad and I got to enjoy a very RARE day date at Pizza Port Brewing Company in Solana Beach.  They have amazing pizza!  I went running after dropping the kids off and he went biking and we met up after.  I cheated and took a shower first!

Tell me something fun from your week!

As always, I wish you Happy Feet,
SD Mom


  1. Seriously, I don't think there is anything better than a DAY date!! So fun and what a great week! Have a wonderful weekend Smitha!

  2. Lots of fun and good things there. The race looked great. I'd love to do the poker run, but a little outside of my commute, haha. Nothing like a day off during the week. I enjoy when I do some WFH days like that and can walk my daughter to preschool. That was the one benefit of the snow this winter was when I would work from home and have snow day pancakes with her for breakfast.

    1. I love that! I knew you were a good person, now I know you are a good ad too! have a great weekend!

  3. I ran the Carlsbad 5000 last year; it's such a great race! Congrats on your accomplishment! I hope your great week continues into the weekend.

  4. Congratulations on your race! Enjoy the long weekend with your family. Happy Easter! -L

  5. So much fun, I love having days off during the week to spend with my son and date nights are always great! We are going out tonight for sushi, I can't tell you the last time we went out for dinner just the two of us, I can't wait! I hope you have a great weekend!

  6. I love day dates! They rarely happen and that makes them all the more special. I also love Newport Beach. Your blog always makes me miss CA. I NEED to move back :)

    Have an awesome weekend Smitha and thanks for linking up with Fitness Friday!

  7. You look like you really enjoyed the race! My boys love it when both my husband and I can pick them up from daycare together. It's happens so rarely though!

  8. I ran 8 miles in the PQ canyon with my husband - that's our "day date." His family is in town, so I'm eating really nutritious Indian food. It's helping with running recovery, for sure!
