Table for 18.

Get excited for another weight-lifting post later on today, we focused on hamstrings yesterday followed by 45 minutes on the elliptical.  Is it weird that my sister actually moved the elliptical so that it was 3 inches from mine rather than the standard 2 feet so that we could hear each other easier.  We got a lot of weird stares from people.  Pretty sure my abs got a better work out from laughing than the rest of my body.

Just another Friday night in Janae and Billy World.  I don't know if you have caught on to a common theme of my blog yet but in case you haven't......I am kind of obsessed with family.  I had family in town and so did Billy so why not combine the two most awesomest things together.....family and food that is.

Have you ever eaten pizza from the side, didn't think so.  Try it, time to think outside the box or triangle for that matter.

IMG 5214

There was plenty of salad with my omega-3 fatty acids in the form of goldfish (they didn't have swedish fish for me to sprinkle on top so I had to settle for the crackers).

And there was more dessert pizza than ever.  Billy came up with the brilliant idea to ask for a side of the frosting and Billy's brother and I followed through with the idea and actually did it.  Oreo pizza dipped into a cup of frosting......words can't even describe what I experienced.

After we had officially eaten Pizza Pie Cafe out of business we moved the party to our house (I am on the floor getting tackled by my nephew as the picture was being taken).

IMG 5224

Someone got into my closet and decided to try on my shoes.  Pretty sad that a two year old can walk better in heels than I can and I am not talking about my niece.....my nephew did it even better.

IMG 5226

Did you have a long run today? A race?  Did you sleep in or make banana pancakes?  Tell me about your morning.

-I am going to sleep in until 8:30 and then I am teaching spin, ellipticising, lifting and then you guessed it- more family time.

Do you like having people over to your house....do you like being the host?

-I LOVE it.  When school is out I will be planning some pretty stellar get-togethers at our house (aka Billy bbq's for everyone and I make dessert).  You are ALL invited okay?!?!

Goldfish, cheez-its, wheat thins, ritz, saltines or other cracker?

-Wheat thins are my favorite with cheez-its (white cheddar flavor) in a close second.

I used to be obsessed with Annie's honey graham bunnies. So flipping addictive!

This morning I went for a fantastic 4 mile run :D

Your nieces and nephews are so adorable! You guys must live really close to your sister!

Mmm dessert pizza! Can life get any better?!

Woke up early and blogged--making waffles later on! With berries and syrup!
Taking it easy today--gym, netflix, run, make rice krispie bars, etc.

Do you like having people over to your house....do you like being the host?
Yeah! I host a girls' Bible study every Sunday night and I love having friends and family over...plus it's great when when the night is over, I just walk down the hall and go to bed...without a long drive home! ha ha.

White cheddar cheezits are AMAZING. haven't had those in forever! I love goldfish crackers and teddy grahams!

My Achilles flared up again so I am not going for a long run and I had to give up on training for my marathon in a few weeks. I am going to try a run today, just run and not care about distance. Then it is the gym and do some weights, a quick bday gift shopping trip and a 12:00 bday party. I love having people over, especially for bbq's. Wheat thins or white cheez-its. Have you tried the baby swiss cheez-its?

I used to be obsessed with wheat thins, esp. the reduced fat ones.... they have extra salt I think hah. I also love having bug family parties!!! :)

Had a pb banana sammie and ran 5 miles at the gym!

This post makes me wish i had more family in town/closer to me! I moved to North carolina to teach, and left a lot of my family in Michigan. Thankfully, I have a husband and some gal pals...but a huge family get together sounds so perfect. Enjoy!!!!!!!

And i could eat rainbow gold fish all. day. long!

The only productive things I have done all day are: putting food into a crockpot & organizing my google reader.
It's about to storm here, so I'm planning to do yoga in my living room later.
I can't wait for your summer bbq's! I'll bring a side dish, okay? ;)

We're hosting a "core training" workshop at work so I get to represent our staff and (hopefully) learn a lot! Then I'm coming home to RUN because it's supposed to be hot and sunny for the first time today!! Your goldfish-topped salad put the biggest smile ever on my face and made me go "how did I not ever think to do that???" :-)

I wish I had as much family as you, it must be so nice to always have people around!!!
I have a 10k today!!! I am pretty excited about it!

If you eat your pizza backwards (starting at the crust, tip last), you get a wish. At least that's what my family says!

Hey hey! I took and yoga class and a zumba class, ate banana covered in PB and am now blog stalking! Tonight - Phil (aka boyfriend) time!

i woke up at my usual time to go running, but i went for a run + a HUGE hike on thursday, plus another little hike yesterday & my muscles are hurtin! plus i have to work today, waitressing, so i'll be movin' around still (not that it counts as exercise though).

I LOVE being the host! my favourite thing is planning fun parties (the last one was sex & the cit themed) and making food and entertaining my friends/family.

wheat thins, hands down. mmm :)

I LOVE salad buffets, I always make the most ridiculous combinations! Love the addition of goldfish :)

I CAN'T WALK IN HEELS either.......almost all my shoes are flats except for one.

 
At April 9, 2011 at 9:10 AM , Anonymous Lindsey @ Textbooks and Cookbooks said...

Goldfish, cheez-its, wheat thins, ritz, saltines or other cracker?

How am I supposed to pick just one?! Goldfish are probably #1...then saltines! I grew up on those crackers..so good! I think it's the salt + crunch that I love. They are especially good with peanut butter and marshmallow fluff sandwiched between...and crunched up in chili :)

I love cheez-itz and goldfish!

I love how much you love your family! It definitely shows!

man oh man, we LOVE having people over! friday night, saturday afternoon, random wednesday games nights...we love it all :)

i did my last long run for boston yesterday...i'm not very optimistic about this race for me. i've fallen off the bandwagon something awful. we shall see how it goes.

 
At April 9, 2011 at 9:44 AM , Blogger Kurt @ Becoming An Ironman said...

Saltines are essentially a staple in my kitchen. I'm more a fan of the ritz, wheat thins, and goldfish, but since I'll eat the entire box in one sitting, I go for saltines for health reasons.

I have a long run today, but I split it up. I ran just under 5 miles this morning. I'm gonna' bike to the gym, swim, bike back, and then run another 4 miles this afternoon (after a nap).

 
At April 9, 2011 at 9:46 AM , Blogger Erin Masi said...

Spent the night out with friends and woke up while the rest of them slept in to get in a 6 mile run. The weather was so fantastic and it felt really good-aside from the fact that my knee is now killing me. :(

So fun to have so much family near!!! You have such a cute fam!!

 
At April 9, 2011 at 10:04 AM , Anonymous Gen said...

Slept in today.....I don't actually think that there's anything on the agenda! :D

My faaavorite crackers are either ritz or wheat thins..it really depends on my mood! hahaha

We have this pizza place here where instead of ordering a couple of pizzas, you sit down and waiters bring out pizzas from the kitchen and you get to pick what kinds you want as they walk by. There's normal pizza flavors (cheese, salami, chicken, pepperoni) and then there's dessert pizza(pineapple and condensed milk, chocolate with strawberries and caramel, banana and cinnamon, chocolate with sprinkles and chocolate coconut!!!) So if you ever come to Recife to run a marathon, I'll take you there! :D
Hope you have an awesome weekend!

I made breakfast and then taught a Zumba class. I will be teaching a Zumba-thon this afternoon, so for now I'm resting the legs and feet. Weather is GORGEOUS (87 and sunny) here so I may do some yard work (or just watch my hot husband do yard work while getting some sun).

WHERE is your niece's hat?!?!

I love wheat thins they are the BOMB. I also like those wheatable crackers in the pecan and almond varieties. Deeeelish.

Enjoy your family time!

OH - and I LOVE being the hostess! We have people over allll the time and I absolutely love cooking for them and just entertaining in general.

I love having people over to my house - but it never happens, mainly because the husband doesn't. And, GOLDFISH! Errrrrytime!

I had a 12 mile long run that went wonderfully! And I don't blame you for being all about family with one as amazing as yours! My fave crackers are triscuts with goldfish as a close seconds... although to me pretzels rule above all, all food in general

Ha! My morning... lol. Spent dealing with a kid puking in the freakin' Louvre museum. Fun times :P

I really like having people over... especially ones who don't mind my messy, kid-friendly house :)

Everything tastes great when it sitz on a Ritz. They were my fave preggo food... with cream cheese. But now I don't really eat any crackers.

12 miles on the TM...brutal! ha. Good thing I had the girls there to push me...I was not feeling the 6am wake-up call that Rachelle had set :)

I LOVE having people over...I think I just like my home and I LOVE cooking for people.

Jealous you went to Pizza Pie Cafe again...I seriously am addicted to the cookie dough pizza there.

ohhh and I would definitely pick wheat thins!

Have an AWESOME day with your fam :) :) :)

Can't wait to get some more weight lifting tips!

I'm laughing thinking of you and your sister moving ellipticals around the gym. People must have thought you were crazy. Love it.

That pizza looks fantastic. I'm thinking it might be kitchen experiment time to create my own dessert pizza!

I slept in like CRAZY today. I got up at 7 to walk the dog and eat breakfast, but then went back to sleep afterwards until 11:30. Yikes.

Take your goldfish, roll em up in a piece of cheese like a taco and eat. Yummo, I call it a goldfish taco and it is a little piece of heaven. Delish.

I love your family dinners! And your niece finally took the hat off!? I rode my bike to CrossFit this morning. It kicked my butt. I can barely sit down because of squats and lunges. My current favorite crackers are Mary's - gluten free! I wrote a purple post yesterday and thought of you and our mutual purple obsession. :) xo

I ran 16 miles, it was suppose to do 18. Its hard to have motivation to run when its snowing in your face.
I founds some new cracker that I just love Town House Flatbread crisps Italian Herb, wonderful! Goldfish cracker last a day in my house with 3 kids who love them.

I did a 300 workout twice and then taught a 75 minute spin class! It was awesome and I used your add on game! Thanks so much for sharing that!! I got my nails done, getting my hair done and then taking a nap! It's been a great day so far! I'm not big in having people over because it means I have to clean... Ugh! I love the white cheddar cheezits!

No long run for me today. I went out last night in some heels that made my feet hurt something bad so I don't think they can handle any more than a few miles today. Your family is so cute! I love that you all love to spend time together. My family is the same way and there's nothing better :)

I ran 10 miles this morning and got some good hills in... I'm so hype I want to run some more, I'm in Atlanta and it's hot today. I'm a goldfish girl, I love the pizza ones and the wholegrain cheddar, I have a 3 year old so we always have them.

Saltines, followed by Cheez-its. I just can't get enough of crackers!

I had a 5 mile race (substituting for my scheduled 5 mile long run). It was super fun and felt so good to run again after being injured all week.

I can't walk in heels either! Slept in this morning, had some quiet time with God, cleaned, and then went to the gym to do weights and my PT exercises.

Goldfish every time! Especially at rest stops on long bike rides.

Joe and I slept in until 11a and made turkey bacon, egg and bagel sandwiches, then started cleaning/ packing- I leave TOMORROW AM to head to my mom's house and get ready for my wedding next week! Woohoo!

Goldfish are my favorites.

Happy Saturday!

I would like to be an honorary member of your family! You guys always seem to be having a great time! That pizza and salad look amazing! I may be starving from my 21.1 mile run this morning! I love Cheez-Its but goldfish are a close second! By the way, I sent you an email to a picture of heaven...the candy store in my area! You should come to Cleveland and run with me and then we can go buy ridiculous amounts of candy including swedish fish!!!

i ran 20 miles! 17.5 outside, then the rest on the treadmill cause of the epic thunderstorm we got! crazy...and then pancakes, a bath, and a nap. seriously so good!

 
At April 9, 2011 at 2:35 PM , Blogger Rene said...

Goldfish of course - even better when sprinkled on tomato soup.
I ran 8.5 miles today and I sucked it up. Bad idea to:
a) run outside on a windy day b) wait to start run until 11 on a day when the high is 90 c) not wear sunscreen so I am now proudly sporting an Ipod running band tan line
I really want a do over.

Ran the Charlottesville half marathon in 2:27:54. I'm obviously not the fastest runner, but I thought it would take me about ten minutes longer because there were steep hills, so I'm super happy!

12 mile treadmill run with the most awesome, amazing, fun group of girls ever. 4 treadmills in a row it was awesomeness in a jar. Oh wait except it was 1000 degrees and I nearly died.

I love goldfish crackers. I go through a costco sized box every week. oops! Do you ever think about how hard it will be to share with your kids once you have them. lol such a random thought but I hate sharing! Especially my goldfish crackers.

Have a great day lovely lady!

Did you have a long run today? YUP!!! had a date with Rochelle, Rachelle, and Julia at the gym... 13 miles on the treadmill... I don't know how you do longs on the TM... it was tough!

Do you like having people over to your House... do you like being the host? YES! I've been thinking, I need to host a GNO (or Girls Night In) at my house and have all the runner gals over! You can be the guest-of-honor! :)

Goldfish, cheez-its, wheat thins, ritz, saltines or other cracker? I love ALL carbs but my fav fav fav cracker is the cracked pepper and olive oil triscuits. they ARE SOOOOO GOOD. but they give you dragon-breath, so you have to be careful! ha!

Happy Saturday girlie!!

Your family posts always give me a big ol' case of the warm fuzzies. :) I have a very small family and don't get to experience that. And while I live in the same town as my in-laws, my parents and sister are a couple of hours away.

I had a half-marathon this morning. I'll post about it later. To put it mildly, it was less than stellar.

I love having friends over if we can order pizza. lol I'm not a good hostess. I'll supply the food and drink, but don't expect me to make it!

Have you heard of the Back to Nature brand of crackers? They make an organic version of wheat thins that are the BOMB. With salsa, of course. Or hummus.
