#FridayFascinations: Things I Am Loving Lately!

Friends, you made it to Friday!  Give yourself a HUGE pat on the back!  I haven't done one of these Friday Favorites posts in a while.  It is the one where I tell you things I am loving lately!  So let's get to it!

1.  Bob's Red Mill Oatmeal to Go Cups

Unless you really don't read my blog, you know we are moving this week.  That means, eating from take out and frozen meals.  Thank goodness for these Oatmeal to Go cups.  If I want Gluten free, Ready in 3 minutes with 7g protein, 7g fiber and a Good source of iron, then these are it!  Perfectly convenient to take to work for a makeshift lunch or snack!  I am NOT a good video maker but check out mine and the #SDKidz review of the cups!  I definitely think the seeds and the flax make it a more adult palate friendly oatmeal!  (I like to mix it with almond milk and stick it in the microwave!) Disclaimer: I was sent the cups as part of my partnership with Moms Meet.  All opinions are my own and I was not compensated in any other way.

2.  #OrlandoUnited5K

You have heard about the tragic events that took place in Orlando earlier this month.  As a show of solidarity and a way to express our love, our local Moms Run This Town chapter organized a virtual run.  And yes, we coordinated rainbow colors.  Because Love is Love is Love!  (I hope this picture makes you smile because it makes me smile!)

3.  Ahi Poke

This is now my absolute favorite food and I crave it all the time.  If you don't know what Poke is, it is best described as a fish salad made with tuna, soy sauce, sea salt, green onions, cucumbers, chili oil, sesame oil, seaweed salad and other ingredients depending on the place.  It can be served on rice or plain.  But it is spicy, fresh and bright!  Go try it!  Great dish for the summer!

They are the same socks you love as a full length compression sock but cut low!  They come in all sorts of colors including the ever popular mint!  I wear capris mostly when I run at work for RUNch and so the lows work!  You can get 2 pairs for $25!  And as you know, there is always a 40% off code around.  Try PRO16!

5.  This new coffee mug from my cousin

And this one from Paula and Dave too!

And the hat (giveaway coming soon) I am wearing in the picture and the tank (the tank says "Life Changes on the Run")!

As always, I am linking up with MarCourtney and Cynthia - AKA the DC Trifecta, Nicole for Fit & Fashionable Friday and Jill for Fitness, Health & Happiness Link-Up! 

So did one of the above catch your eye?  What are you loving this week?  Can't wait to hear!

As always, I wish you Happy Feet,
SD Mom


  1. Hi Smitha. How are you? I can see why these are your favorites. Love love oatmeal and compression.

    Thanks for sharing with the Fitness, Health & Happiness community. Have a great weekend!

  2. I just found out what a hi poke was last night at work ladies were talking about it. Sounds delicious. I would like to try those low cute compression socks. I love how they feel but would never where the tall ones running.

  3. Are the lows compression? Or just socks?

  4. LOVE both of those coffee mugs! Good luck with the move!

  5. That move = love!!! And those oatmeal cups sound fantastic, I'm curious how expensive they are! BUT we're also moving this week, too, so convenience may trump cost!

  6. Oh, I love poke! Apparently it's a major food trend this summer. Which means the east coast is actually poke on menus and at pop-up restaurants! Win!

  7. I love poke! And coffee! That photo of your running club is great!

  8. I heart that coffee mug! Your cousin's got style ;)
