My life is random.

I had to go to work yesterday while BIlly and his family hung out.  You better believe I moped around school half the day.

The bell rang and I literally hopped (at least 8.6 mph) to the car to go meet them at Zupas.  I was part of the party again.

I figure every now and then we should have a normal picture of us so that my future kids don't think I had a some terrible disease that made me do a creepy face every time that the flash went off.

IMG 5639

We had the 'choose two combo' (soup, salad or panini)  I got my usual pina colada salad (coconut, cinnamon almonds, grapes, mandarin oranges and chicken) and the 'Ultimate Grilled Cheese' which I had never had and it was Deeeelicious (wow, I am embarrassed that I just typed that and I promise I will never do that again).

IMG 5635

Billy is accepting sponsors for his future hand modeling career.  He takes great pride in his silky smooth skin and wears gloves 90% of the day to protect them.

IMG 5640

No matter what you get at Zupas you get a free chocolate covered strawberry. They are onto something

After lunch with the fam it was back to work.  Our school was holding a carnival type thing and of course in my room I planned to have.......Fear Factor

little kids eat out of dirty (melted Baby Ruth's) diapers,

IMG 5647

finding a key in a bucket full of cockroaches.....

IMG 5649

Fishing for bubble gum in a heap of whip cream, and eating sardines dipped in pudding (not pictured- I didn't want you to lose your oatmeal onto your keyboard).

IMG 5642

and a few more things that I won't show on the blog for fear of people de-following me.

After working I speeded to the hotel to meet up with everyone because once again I hate missing out on the party..........

and Billy had a bag of watermelon and pineapple waiting for me and then went and got me a ten pm dinner......

IMG 5650

That hair is a result of a long day of 'working' and the acne (you can see it better if I wash all 7 layers of make-up off) is a result of eating ice cream 6 days a weak.


1.  Do insects freak you out?

-YES, the closest I got to those stupid things was for the picture.  The students loved chasing me, the gimp, down the hall with cockroaches.

2.  Do you ever get fast food salads?

-I LOVE Wendy's apple pecan salad with feta cheese.  I have even dreamed about it a few times.

3.  What did you do last night?

4. Anyone racing? Long runs?

I just love your blog. Trying to get the motivation to go to my long run on the treadmill since it's raining cats and dogs here!! I have never done more than an hour on the treadmill and today's long run is 2 hours! Eeeek!

I never thought I really hated bugs till I took my dog for a walk a couple of weeks ago and realized I had a tick on me when we got back. I freaked out crying and made my roommate come home from work to take it off. I was a mess and have been killing every bug I see since then. UGH.

Last night I had a headache so I got some nachos and a DQ blizzard and called it a night :)

Tapas party with some friends last night. So fun and the food was amazing.
I have a ten miler in store for today. I've been saving Harry Potter 7 for this day.
I'm not a fan of fast food salads.
Bugs don't bother me - snakes and mice though....

I am loving the melted baby ruths out of the diaper. I will do this at my next dinner party.

Most bugs creep me out. There are very few (crickets and worms) that I will tolerate.

I don't usually eat fast food (just jersey mike's and subway)...

I got to hang out with my family last night so nice :)

Spiders creep me out more then other bugs....blech. Last night I tried to fit 21 candles onto a friends tiny birthday cupcake and light them. I surprised her then went home early so I could go to bed. I gotta race today! :)

OMG, if I had to be even near that cock roach thing I'd freak out! That grilled cheese does look pretty deeeelicious :)

Last night I hate a huge burrito, it was pretty much the size of my head and then I covered it in guacamole. LOVEEE.

Love all the food you post pics of, you find the yummiest food ever! Also the most photogenic somehow. :)

I don't like bugs that move quickly like cockroaches. Slow bugs, like spiders, don't bother me.

I went to a concert last night. (Pete Yorn and Ben Kweller). Fun.

At April 23, 2011 at 8:03 AM , Blogger Coy Martinez said...

Ok, those were the coolest / grossest pics ever! Almost anyway, but super fun!

I tried a fast food chicken caesar salad at Fazolis the other day and it wasn't too bad. I was surprised.

I'm gonna try one more long run on Monday in my Vibrams, if I can make it 8-9 miles in them I'm gonna run my half on May 1st in them!! Wish me luck! Oh, and I find out Wed if I get in to the NYC Marathon!

omg if those were your hands in the roaches....((shiver)) i absolutely despise roaches and ants. and potato bugs. give me snakes and i'm fine, but those three bugs? no f'in way! haha!

I could never stick my hand in that bucket of cockroaches! Gross. I haven't tried any fast food salads but that wendy's one sounds good!

How sad is it that last time I went to cafe Zupas they thought I was ordering for two. I got two water cups and two strawberries. I didn't complain though... I could eat a million of those strawberries!!

Two things I took away from this post...
1) I need a Zupas near me! I've never heard of the place, but the food looks incredible.
2) I still really dislike bugs and cockroaches...yup. Seeing them crawling up peoples' hands definitely didn't help. ;)

I ran a 5k this morning, although it was more like a 4.5k but still good.

Those were real cockroaches? Ack! I had a whole bunch of them, uninvited in my portable classroom last year...makes my skin crawl just thing about it.

aaaaahhhh those roaches...yuck!!

I like Wendy's Asian Salad, but it's not often that I eat it.

I'm suppose to run 13 miles tomorrow. BUT my knee and IT band are acting up, so I've decided to take off this week. Lots of icing, tens'ing and stretching for me!

At April 23, 2011 at 9:47 AM , Anonymous Pam said...

First of all you and billy are a gorgeous couple! :)

OMG the picture of the coakroaches freaked me out! I def. couldn't be a Fear Factor contestant!

I love, love Wendy's salads! have you tried Carl's Jr.'s?? They are just as good! I have one at least 1x a week. We are going to have so much fun this summer 'cuz we have lots in common!! :)

Going to run easy this weekend. Long on Monday. I have a 1/2 marathon May 1st. I'm with my parents...drove in yesterday (henderson,nv) to surprise them...heading back home tonite. Spending time with my mamma! She always makes me favorite Korean foods when I'm with her! :)

Have a blessed day gorgeous lady!! :)

2. chick fil A salads. pretty good. do you have those where you live?

3. last night..TV Grey's anatomy and Private Practice. both terrible.

4. tomorrow long run 12 miles. last one before my 2nd half marathon (May 1st) I am so nervous.

Hi pretty! Your mention of Billy's future hand modeling career (hehe) made me think of this ridiculous video from YouTube about a nutty hand model:

Too funny.

Still not running but I took a fantastic spin class this morning! She had us ride for a minute just using two fingers from each hand to hold onto the handle bars! It took some serious core strength...

Any restaurant that gives you free chocolate covered fruit certainly is on to something great.

I hate spiders, stinkbugs, and centipedes. I freak out with centipedes. They just have too many legs. For a school project I had to get Madagascar hissing cockroaches and I would pick them up all the time. They really weren't that bad since they were so enormous

I really think I died a little inside when i saw those cockroaches! YUCK!

I cannot even begin to describe to you how much that cockroach picture freaked me out. There is NO WAY I am getting near that bucket. I may have nightmares about it tonight. When you live in the South, they just tend to be around sometimes. One time one had found its way into the laundry and into a shirt I put on. A few minutes later I discovered it inside my shirt. I am emotionally scarred but hope that one day I will recover.

I like the McDonald's southwest grilled chicken salad.

Today I ran with a work friend doing her first 5k!

The baby ruth in the diaper is really funny :) It's a good way to protect your chocolate stash in the future.

I had to work nights last night but now have 5 glorious days off!

PS. I woke up, made some breakfast, and checked your blog so far today. (not necessarily in that order)

I seriously have eaten 3 of those Wendy's salads this week.
They are to die for aren't they?

I thought I was all alone in my love for those salads.
I was so ashamed.
Not anymore.

I hate bugs. I got married so I'd have a bug killer!

I do get fast food salads. I like the Carl's Jr. Apple Walnut salad. Yum.

Last night we ran to REI to find me a fuel belt for my long runs. I was wary of wearing one, but it worked out perfectly! I love it.

I signed up for a 10 mile race today! It's the first time in my life that I've ever run 10 miles! And the fuel belt worked like a charm. Didn't even feel it around my waist. Oh, and I met my goal of finishing the 10 miles in under two hours. Yay!

First 12 miler! It was intense.

I loathe insects! I would have been afraid to even have the roaches inside for fear that one would escape and breed. Where did you borrow the roaches from?

At April 23, 2011 at 12:26 PM , Blogger Tara Leigh said...

Yes - terrified of insects, pretty much any shape or size of creepy crawly !!!

In Australia we have NO good fast food salads... All your posts on awesome salads make me jealous - we have nowhere near the variety or deliciousness here..

No run for me today or yesterday (it's 4.25am right now) but I did just get in from a night out dancing which I am sure burnt about a million calories which will make the grilled ham and cheese + 2L of gatorade I consume tomorrow morning A OK :)

when I read your title... I was like no worries...mine too!! haha. I am random all the time!

Last night I watched TANGLED. and totally LOVED it. AMAZING.

also...your students are SO brave...I could never do any of the stuff you had them do. GROSS.

LR today= 15 miles. made it. Can hardly believe it really. Maybe the hardest run of my 10 month running career.

OH and I LOVE ZUPAS!!! lets go sometime..k? and I had no idea they also had white chocolate covered strawberries????? YUM!

I want to see with you soon! please?

At April 23, 2011 at 1:14 PM , Blogger Joanna said...

I've never heard of Zupas. I wonder if they have one nearby because it definitely looks like my type of place! YUM!

On the flip side, bugs TOTALLY freak me out and that picture of the roaches really make me shiver and squeal!! EEEKS!

I do enjoy salads from fast food places and I love how Wendy's has the half salads and you can pair them with something! What? I can get fries WITH my salad? YESSS!

Last night? I slept... ALOT! I went to sleep really early, sadly.

And as for long runs, I went on a long run after work last night and did the best that I've ever done!! I'm a new runner so it was only a 5K but I did it faster than ever and felt so proud!

omg cockroaches freak me out. I started hyperventilating, just reading your blog. I cannot handle them.

"Long" 10miler today...which means the marathon is next Sunday!! 8 days!! (eeeek!)

Post long run, we got brunch. Mexican crepe stuffed with chicken,cheese, avocado, tomatoes and sour cream? Yes please!

LOL... I LOVE this! Fear Factor, indeed!

Every single one of those is just awesome!

Janae, you are so pretty... even when you make goofy faces and even when you have 7 layers of makeup over acne... your kids will be so proud to have such a fun and lovely mom... don't worry at all :)

Bugs.. for the most part, they do creep me out. Not spiders so much, but roaches and silverfish really do... and earwigs... and potato bugs... and those big fat waterbugs.

I ran last night! woo hoo... first time in 3 weeks... but my sitting things out was by choice. Then I went to bed after my husband made me dinner :)

Today is a lazy day... tomorrow is my "long" run which will only be 6 because I haven't run in a while. My PT modified my training schedule to accommodate my 'vacation'. She is awesome.

Last night was my perfect night, made dinner then cuddled up with my hubby to catch up on DVR. Did a 17 mile long run this morning to train for my 50K in June!

2. No, but you make me want to try a fast food salad!

3. I went out to dinner with the same group that I went on my grad trip (Europe!) with.

4. I have my first 5K ever sceduled on June 5, then another one on June 26 and then another one on July 26. Sooooooo stocked, but sooooooo nervous!

This post deserved a warning to those who are 'insect sensitive'! I have quite the phobia of those creatures you have pictured. Perhaps growing up in South Carolina where they run rampid has something to do with it?!

I ran 7 miles this morning. My longest run since my stress fracture debacle! It was a beautiful day, I ran a sub 9 and it felt great. You'll be back in action in no time, hang in there!!!

i loved this post for a million reasons. first-because you look gorgeous in that picture of you and billy. and not in a creepy way. not like ooooh i love this because you look good. ha. weird. but just becuase i like that picture. 2 because that zupas looks a-ma-zing. i have only been there once ever and i think i got the wrong thing because i was NOT impressed and have never wanted to go back. i mean, it was good, but it was like a regular turkey sandwich i could make at home. now i really want to go. and i want that salad. and maybe that sandwich. but mostly the strawberry. and last because i HATE HATE when i have to be at school and michael--oh. that would be my husband. like how i mentioned him as if you just knew who i was talking about?? i think this could be a sign that i need to ease up ont eh reading/commenting on your blog--is hanging with the fam and doing fun thigns. one time? i was on lunch and he called me and said he was going to lunch at in-n-out with his sisters and i was like uhhh..not only is that my fave place, but lunch with teh fam? and i'm here teaching teenagers and smelling lunchroom pizza? no thanks. and another time it was the family reunion and everyone was golfing and swimming and i was at work. so annoying. anyway. i related to that and loved it. also, i love this post because i am remember to comment and tell you that i think it's time to be bffs because we have like a million of the same friends. first ashton, then shawnee, now chloe...who's next? freak. might as well meet up at yogurtland with all of us and have a you-guys-are-all-friends-and-i'm-joining party. ps, went there last night and got red velvet cake batter with caramel, sweetened condensed milk, and white choc. chips. oh my. heaven in that little cup. anyway. this comment is probably borderline if not over the line creepy. so i'm done now!
