Happy Happy Happy Birthday to my most gorgeous sister TODAY and Happy Happy Happy Birthday to my little niece that I miss so dearly tomorrow!
2 important running matters.
1. It is monday. The day after a rest day. That means I am more than excited to run especially after I sat on my couch for 20 hours (literally) yesterday.
2. I just signed up for a very very very exciting race this month. I’ll talk about it in the next post, I haven’t been this excited for a race in a long time.
Why would an Aquarium close at 5 pm? Why wouldn’t two adults with smart phones google what time the Aquarium closed long before they got there so that they wouldn’t be ridiculously disappointed that they couldn’t go stare at sharks and starfish. You can even see the look of despair in Brooke’s eyes.
We had planned on stopping at six different towns along the way home from Southern California but that turned into three because we stayed way longer than we planned on in Santa Barbara and Solvang. We will make up for it and go to Santa Cruz this week because Billy has one more week off until he has to go back to school and reading 2,200 pages a day.
After we were thoroughly disappointed by the aquarium we walked around the pier for a while and once again let Yelp decide where we should go to eat. We wanted something cheap, close and delicious. Yelp told us to go to Taqueria Del Mar which was about 5 blocks away. On our way there is started POURING and poor little Brooke’s hairdo got all messed up.
Once again she loved the high chair, I don’t know how I feel about this. I was hoping she would prefer sitting in my lap while we eat until she is 12.
We started off with the mandatory chips and salsa.
All of the reviews for the restaurant told us to get the fish tacos and so we listened. Each taco had SO MUCH fish and the flavor was perfect. We may be making the 1 hour and 40 minute drive there much more often just for these $3 tacos.
Good thing we were both prepared with our sunglasses at 10 o’clock at night.
Today we are working on organizing our life and doing all of the errands that we have put off for 3 weeks.
Are you excited for your run today? Not so excited or just a little excited? Was last week a good running week?
Who is running a race THIS month?
Hot, medium or mild salsa?
Be honest… are you afraid of sharks?
