Friday Favorites: Road Trip Edition.

Time for my favorite things about Friday!!!

1.  The fact that 20 minutes into our road trip, I wasn't the only one that had to stop to use the restroom.  I am used to going on road trips with Billster and he can make it all the way to Cali (9.5 hours) without having to stop once.  I would just like to think that I hydrate myself like a champion.

2.  You knew this was coming.  More road trip treats than most families of 8 take with them.  There is just two of us and it is only a 3.5 hour drive.

3.  Doing the robot while listening to Jay-Z......my sis and I are pretty gangsta.  I am a great drivers ed teacher.

4. Billy downloaded Season 1 of Chopped onto my ipad......I will be a chef someday!

5.  Before checking into the hotel or doing anything else we pulled right into pizza factory without even asking each other where we wanted to go.  Yes, there are 3 of these babies close to home but that dang salad bar tastes even better when you are on vacation and you are with someone else that goes back for 2nds and should I tell you the truth...okay, 3rds.    It is a miracle how my stomach can expand to fit the amounts of vegetables I put in it.

6. Our sweet $50 a night hotel room.  We are pretty classy and you better believe we are going to save $11 by sharing a bed.

7. I got to go to a KILLER pump class this morning and only had to substitute two of the moves because of my leg.  I was HIGH on endorphins and I will look forward to Monday, Wednesdays and Friday so that I can work my upper body hard core!

Believe it or not I hate going on road trips.. I guess it's because it would mean being in the car with 5 kids, a husband and a 140 pound Great Dane.. uh sorry I'll stay home. :)

Sounds like fun! Have a great weekend!

1. Favorite part of a road trip: The obligatory Starbucks stop for an iced mocha or latte. Yum.

Big Salads = My favorite. I want that so bad!
My favorite part about road trips is when you aren't on the highway. When you drive through towns, pretty landscapes, and can just look out the window for hours. My favorite place to road trip to is Outer Banks, North Carolina. Tomorrow we're flying to California and doing a road trip from San Francisco to San Diego!

I hope you have a really fun trip, Janae!
Boston misses you, but I know I will see you here next year :)

You and your sister are so cute together. Seriously, could you pile your salad any higher?! It's like the Shel Silverstein poem "Sarah Sylvia Synthia Stout Would Not Take the Garbage Out", but with veggies, not garbage!

dance parties and singing at the top of my lungs are why i love road trips. although i hate driving so i don't really love road trips at all, unless i'm the passenger.

 
At April 15, 2011 at 4:18 PM , Blogger my little celebration said...

Great pictures. Sister time is the best.

My favorite part about road trips is the escape. I love getting away, listening to great music on the road and doing something besides the day-to-day monotony.

Favorite thing about road trips is the food! I go all out and eat all the fun foods I never normally eat during the week :) That's nice you're going with your sister, it makes me want to go on a trip with my sisters!

Have a blast! :)

I love road trips with my sister. So much fun! We always dance to old school Britney and have to get one of those uber sweet, uber caffeinated coffees from a gas station.

I love road trips! Billy is in charge of music, I'm in charge of snacks and we take turns driving. My favorite road trip was from Napa all the way to L.A. last May. Amazing! Wish we could do it again. Have fun this weekend!! Love me some sister-time. :)

best part of a road trip: I don't feel guilty just sitting because I don't have a choice...oh and the candy snacks.

Friday favorite: starting the day off with great workout and ending it with sushi and mini cadbury eggs.

I just love your facial expressions - you crack me up!!! have fun with your sister!!

mini vacations are the best, and i must agree with you on the salad bar thaaang - my boyfriend & i went to a steakhouse that has a salad bar and i definitely went for seconds for all them veggies!!!

 
At April 15, 2011 at 6:15 PM , Blogger Melissa said...

My favorite thing about road trips is eating as much and as often as possible. I like eating pizza on vacation. Well, let's be real. I like pizza all the time!

I love blasting the music and dancing in the car when on a road trip! Also playing the alphabet game :) I always beat Jonathan lol

Hahha I stop 23987 times for the bathroom during road trips!

The best part about road trips is singing at the top of your lungs to awesome pump-me-up music with your besties :D

1. What is your favorite part about road trips?
Random conversations with the fam.

2. What are some of your favorite things about today?!?! My friend's preemie baby is coming home from the hospital on Monday after 4+ months in the NICU. That will probably be my favorite thing every day for the next week.

3. Where is your favorite place to road-trip too?
Texas to Destin, Florida - It's not so much the trip as almost every town we go through is ghetto. It's the destination that makes the drive so wonderful.

So glad you're trip is going well!! :D
My dad never stops either.....we went on a 9 hr drive and stopped once, and only because we needed gas for the car. We even pack lunches and snacks in the car with us. :P
Favorites:
I got 100 on my Chemistry test! :P
Got to go sing again with my dad!!!

Holy cow, your salad is huge! Looks great though.
My favorite part of road trips is the music, snacks, and making random stops at random places.
Today's favorite: watching the new Office with my boyfriend & laughing hilariously at Will Ferrell.

I'm a seasoned hungryrunnergirl reader, but I've never commented and only just started a blog (as in...a couple minutes ago) of my own. I just thought you should know you're a total inspiration--to a LOT of people, obviously. Your positivity about EVERYTHING is seriously contagious!

Favorite part about road trips--hmm. Definitely the destination, I think. Favorite thing about today--crazy hard spin class this morning! Fav place to road trip to--well, I drive to Baltimore every other weekend to visit my boyfriend (again all about the destination)!

My SPRING BREAK starts today!! Have so so so much fun with your sis, I can only imagine how amazing it would feel to be basking in the sun right now!!

I have to pee every hour on the hour basically, sometimes even more often than that. I pee during every 45 minute class I have. Yup that is a bladder the size of a walnut slash I drink so so much water!!

 
At April 15, 2011 at 6:58 PM , Blogger BigHappyFamily said...

I am in love with your salad picture.

If you need a running fix while in SG, there happens to be a high school track meet at Dixie high this weekend. Enjoy the warm weather!

Best part about road trips? Exploring new places.
Favorite thing about today? Tax season is just about over. Yay!
Favorite place to road trip to? Anywhere I haven't been before.

How could your husband possibly go that long without peeing?! Even if I didn't drink anything for that long, I would STILL have to pee!!

 
At April 15, 2011 at 8:00 PM , Blogger Jenn said...

Ha ha! I have THE weakest bladder. Takes us forever to get anywhere with all the stops for me!

Hope you're having an awesome time with your sista!!!

I love roadtrips with my kids. NO plans just us together stopping when we feel like it...Love the outdoors and hiking and lakes and no TV and no Cellphones (the cell's a lie but it sounds good)....

So glad you can knock out some PUMP!! I haven't been to a pump class forever! Enjoy the rest of your little getaway!

 
At April 15, 2011 at 8:40 PM , Blogger Neon Blonde Runner said...

Again, your salad creation looks delightful!!

I really want to try a pump class, my friend has been having about hers. We don't have one at my gym though :(

Is it weird that my favorite part of road trips are books on tape? It makes the trip go by quickly and it's like someone is personally reading you a book :).

Have so much fun!

Girl, it is some kind of awesome talent that you can masterfully make a salad tower without any of it falling off!

My favorite part of roadtrips is the music! My girlfriends and I always make these cds full of old clubbing music and stuff from when we were younger, it's awesome! It's like a dance party in the car!

 
At April 16, 2011 at 1:21 PM , Blogger Mallory said...

I LOVE road trips! So much fun to chat with friends and listen to music that you loved 8 years ago!

Road trips with my husband are SO FUN! We always take our time and stop a lot and talk about EVERYTHING :)

I like your robot moves :)
I like getting away from the usual places and going some place new. Even if it's just for a day.

i loooove road trips!! my favorite part is usually the company i'm with. i've taken a LOT of roadtrips with close girlfriends and its so much fun to have that time together without distractions and you can be silly and talk about random things for hours. and eat inappropriate amounts of candy.

that is so great for your sister to plan a roadtrip girls getaway for the weekend!!!
