I told you that we have now transformed Thursday night into date night right? I seriously look forward to it all week long and I even change out of my ‘after school pajamas’ for it…that means it is a special occasion. We are VIP members (aka we just entered our names on their website and get emails about special deals) at the restaurant Happy Sumo and tonight they had 2 for 1 on the below items.
This was perfect because 3 of the rolls included things that I could eat since the only fish they had in them were shrimp and crab.
My hot date:
And me with my heavenly mango/bacon/cream cheese with mango dipping sauce roll. I guarantee at least a weekly dream about that roll.
A close-up because it deserves to be drooled over.
Billy and I went on our second date ever to this restaurant and a little while later I got a job there (for Utah peeps…The Happy Sumo) and worked there two years. So many good memories in that little restaurant, especially the one where I was dared to eat a golf ball sized chunk of wasabi for $150….you better believe I did it. All of the burning in my esophagus made it so worth it when I was able to pay rent that month.
Awesomeness #2 of the day:
Billy’s new running shoes. How cool are these? Especially when people see him whiz by them going 13 mph.
They are the Brooks Green Silence and they are the same shoes that some of the Brooks team members wore in the Olympic Marathon Trials this year.
Can’t wait to see what he can do in these shoes for our 5k this weekend (pray he gets over his cold asap).
New HRG baby post HERE! 20 Weeks.
Favorite sushi roll?!?! Not a sushi fan….what is your favorite Japanese food dish?
Where did you go on your last ‘date’? Any fun dates planned for this weekend?
What color are your running shoes? Any Brooks fans out there? Do you ever buy your shoes online?
-Billy got a sweet deal on these ones at runningwarehouse.com
Kristen @ notsodomesticated
I LOVE sushi! I just had a spicy tuna roll with brown rice from Whole Foods the other day. Not quite the same as a nice sushi restaurant, but still yummy.
And I have no doubt that I would LOVE the roll that you had! Mango, bacon, and jalepeno?? I probably would have ordered 3. ;)
Come out to Utah and I will take you for the Mango roll, it was heaven. We love getting grocery store sushi too but you are right…it isn’t quite the same as restaurant sushi. Hope you are having an amazing day. Do you have bananas yet:)
Kristen @ notsodomesticated
Haha I love you … you get a million comments a day, yet you remember my banana sorrows. ;) And YES I have bananas back in my life! Hooray!!!
Oh wow that sushi menu looks AMAZING, especially the first 2 options! I could eat sushi for every meal of the rest of my life and be very content- favorite will always be salmon avocado rolls! Have a great Easter weekend :)!
Since I’m a Brooks Fanatic for 2012 I guess it’s safe to say I’m pretty much in love with Brooks gear. I haven’t tried the green silences, but I have two of their other racing flats and I love them so much!
I have to admit I haven’t ever had sushi. I need to!
Kaitlyn @ Pain Can Be Fun
Out last date was to see the HUNGER GAMES!!!!!!!!!!! It was wonderful :)
Yum, sushi! Our kids love it and its a mainstay for takeout around here.
Several of my friends wear the green silence and love them.
Alyssa @ Fit and Fun in Third
Huge fan of sushi, my husband and I are having a sushi date tonight! :) I always order the exact same thing… Naruto roll and a vegetable roll with a huge side of edamame!
Your hot date? I know two things about Billy from this post. He has great taste in dates because you are looking mighty hot yourself, Mamma Janae! Love the hair!!! And he has great taste in shoes! Those shoes are HOT! :)
I’ve never been brave enough to try Sushi before. I love seafood, but for me it has to be warm!
Those shoes look pretty interesting. I’ve never seen shoes like them before. I just got new shoes yesterday. They are Asics– black and silver. I have a really wide foot, so I usually buy them in the stores, b/c I’m not ever sure if they’ll fit my wide foot!
Katie @ Peace Love & Oats
I used to LOVE sushi, but now I can’t eat gluten (so no tempura) or soy… so no soy sauce. It’s just not the same without sauce…
Meagan @ Managing Meagan
I LOVE Brooks shoes! Mine are blue and I love them!!
Only an awesomely fast and inspiring runner like Billy could pull of those shoes!
Cait the Arty Runnerchick
i love going to sushi places but i admit that i’m actually a sashimi girl…i like the Teka Don spread out on a big ‘ol pile of rice. the rolls just don’t seem to fill me up, i’m like a bottomless pit with them….lol.
okay, love the new colors on billy’s shoes but they make me think of the Malcom in the Middle episode where Hal becomes a Racewalker and he gets a full on red and yellow flame unitard, shoes, and helmet!! i hope u’ve seen that show, soo funny! :)
Katie @ msfitrunner
I love everything about this post! Especially your mango roll and those sneaks!! I love love love sushi and sushi with mango and cream cheese takes it to a whole ‘nother level. drooling;-)
I have been toying with getting the green silence – love those colors. I may get them for my next shoe if these brooks that I just got are as good as I think they will be! I just got the Pureflow – a little more stability than I am used to, but with my shins acting up, it’s what I need to be in for now. Looking forward to getting a minimal shoe like that for half marathons and under.
Heading over to check out your 20 week baby post, yay! My SIL just found out she is having a girl, she’s 18 weeks, and my sister is having a boy in July! babies everywhere:)
Have a great FRIDAY!!!
Gah! Love sushi…actually having it for lunch today and I’m quite excited about it :) But I always get excited about food. It’s borderline sad actually.
P.S. I love your hair! So pretty!
Thanks Maggie and I hope you enjoy EVERY single bite of your sushi. I am the exact same way, food makes me beyond happy!
Elizabeth @ reads recipes runs
Bah! I need to get on that email list! We love sushi :) there’s this place in long beach CA that has this sushi app it’s crab wrapped in tuna topped with avocado and 2 or 3 sauces. It’s a bite of heaven.
YES YOU DO….then we can go together. Um, I need that sushi appetizer right this second.
Laura @ LauraLikesDesign
Your hair looks so cute curled like that!
Thanks Laura. Hope you have an amazing day!
Katherine @ Neon Blonde Runner
Janae, that sushi just made me drool, I may have to get some tonight on my way to work :)
My favorite sushi is the sushi from the local grocery store, Kroger!! It is high quality and they have people there making it fresh.
PS your hair looks beautiful!! Have a wonderful weekend!
Thank you girl. YOU DESERVE some sushi and I hope you get some for tonight from Kroger. Have an amazing day!
Yo Momma Runs
BOGO sushi rolls! That’s a great deal. Those shoes are great. The brighter they are, the cooler the person is wearing them. And faster.
My favorite sushi roll is called the pink lady- Its shrimp tempura and spicy crab on top!
Date night for us is Fridays and last week we had a quiet night in prep for my first half. We had sushi and watched Moneyball. Sushi is on the agenda for tonight too…I get on these kicks and always want to eat the same thing over and over until I am sick of it.
My current running shoes are black and purple but I am in the market for something more fun! Love Brooks running clothes but have never used their shoes.
I NEED the pink lady asap, that sounds incredible. I NEED DETAILS ON YOUR FIRST HALF…tell me everything. Sushi last week and this week, lucky:) Black and purple sounds fun to me. Have an amazing day Lynette!
My first half marathon was awesome! I was a bit nervous and the first 4 miles were killer hills. There was so much on route support that there was always someone cheering me on which always helps. :) I got to mile 10 and was feeling great but then I got a bit nervous for those last 3.1 miles because I had never run that far. Someone was trying to encourage me by saying–its only a 5k now you have done that a million times I bet–all I thought was yea but not running 10 miles before I did it! I just dug in for those last miles and honestly started singing LMFAO in my head (no headphones during the race). I really pushed the last mile and finished in 2:17…it felt amazing! I was so proud of myself I teared up a bit and I can’t wait to tackle my next half. I am currently training for the Dublin Ireland full marathon in October–wish me luck!
AHHH Girl you rocked it. First 4 miles of killer hills, you are hardcore. HAHAH I love your thought processes. LMFAO gets me through tough times too. 2:17 is AWESOME and the best part is that you wanted to do MORE after. I want to hear all about your training and Dublin full marathon, so excited for you!
Shut Up and Run
I am dying over the look of those sushi rolls. Never is there enough sushi. Can’t wait to hear how Billy blazes through that 5K.
That is funny because last night I was reading your blog on my phone and it made me want dots so bad….I told billy that he needs to have dots waiting in my nightstand tonight so I can get them stuck in my hair and sheets too:)
ahhhh i love sushi!! I’m so glad kevin likes it too otherwise i’d be pretty sad. it took me a while to get over the weird texture but after that I fell in love. my favorite is at our nearby sushi joint..it has lobster and avocado on the outside and spicy calamari on the inside. SO good!
hmmm last date we went to dinner and a movie. we do try to do them every week but sometimes our “dates” include my sister or his family..its all good ;) no dates planned this weekend but lots of easter candy and lots of family time, which is almost just as nice, haha.
Billys shoes are awesome! i’m also jealous of his sauconys that he had…i have the saucouny guides as well but mine are gray and pink. i like them. mizuno has cool colors but they dont work well on my feet.
have a great friday girl!
Those shoes look like so much fun! I can’t wait for my altar shoes to come!
Ummm…not my altar shoes….but Altra.
Let me know when they get there…I am so stoked!
I haven’t heard from them yet, but I will let you know : ) Have a great Friday !

I loveeeeeee spicy tuna rolls! Getting sushi with a girlfriend tomorrow can’t wait!
Those shoes are SUPER cool!
LOVE sushi! I had one in Costa Rica a couple years ago and its still my favorite to this day, tempura shrimp, mango and coconut. But usually I go for the salmon and avocado rolls here.
A couple weeks ago we had a date day and looked at show homes, went to a candy store, my husband cooked supper and we saw The Hunger Games. I think a coffee date is on the agenda for tomorrow morning :)
I’ve bought a few pairs from running warehouse too. My Mizuno’s are pink and white and Nike Free’s are black and lime green but I really want hot pink and yellow shoes for some reason!
LOVE the Green Silence! Was he able to use the code for extra 15% off?
YES!! Isn’t that awesome. I think he got them for like 45 dollars or something with the code…so cool!
Aimee @ See Aimee Run
Most seafood makes me gag, so I’ve always been too scared to try sushi :(
I love my Brooks Ghosts! I just got a great deal on the Saucony Kinvara 2 at DSW.com, and once they get here I will own three different brands of shoes- Brooks, Saucony, and Mizuno.
Megan @ Run Like a Grl
Sushi addict here!! I love anything with eel in it (or eel sauce on it.. yumm). That includes dragon rolls for sure. Honestly though, I’ll probably try anything!
Oh i love sushi!!! This sounds totally “redneck” oklahoma-ish but we have a roll called the “okie roll” and it is deep-fried. yea.. completely horrible for you (like most food here) but sooooo good.
Andrea @ Andrea Out Loud!
my new most favorite shoes ever are the New Balance WT20s I bought in feb. I actually got them online. they are grey and blue. They are minimalist trail running shoes, but i use them for my training. Love them!
Cat @ Breakfast to Bed
I LOVE sushi. My favorite sushi is tempura fried nori with sliced salmon and wasabi. mmmmmmmmmm..
I ONLY wear Brooks. ONLY. Looking at the PureCadence right now!!
I have never tried sushi before! Can you believe it? My hubby …and everyone else in my family, for that matter..has no interest in trying so I haven’t had it cause I am not going out to eat alone!
We actually had a date last night! I had a groupon and to fast trak in salt lake and did go kart racing! It was so fun. My forearms are so sore though from gripping the wheel. Man. I am cool.
I have bought shoes online before. But only if I have previously tried them on. My current shoes are blue, but I am LOVING all these bright colors they have now. I need to get me some. My birthday is coming up, so fingers crossed :)
Good luck at your 5k this weekend. Hopefully the weather will cooperate. Love that it was 70 degrees Wednesday and now it is SNOWING! Blerg.
I’m a sushi addict. Its a little pricier in Boston compared to NYC so when I visit my parents in NY, its a mandatory meal. Rainbow rolls are the best. Otherwise I stay loyal to anything with salmon and lots of roe. <3 salt.
Out last date was Indian Buffet (not the greatest idea) and Hunger games in theatre. However, this weekend I'm visiting the parents so lots of eating dates to be happening. The question is how many meals can I really eat a day.
Caitlin @ This Bride's Joyride
I loooooooooooove sushi and now may have to buy it for lunch! I absolutely love sweet potato rolls and shrimp tempura rolls. YUM!
I cannot even fathom what it feels like to eat that much wasabi. My sinuses hurt thinking about it.
I am a Nike Free kinda girl but found a pair of men’s Green Silence at Nordstrom’s Rack last weekend. They are an awesome shoe!
I don’t eat anything that comes out of the water except duck and buffalo. ;)
[email protected] southern fit foodie
I love sushi!!! I could eat it every single day. My favorites rolls are the godzilla, mango, quasimoto, and new mexico. SO good!
I’m hoping we go out tonight or tomorrow night on a date!
I know nothing about sushi. I’m not a big fan (I know I know). But your Dr lets you eat it? I got a huge no no when I was pregnant. Just wondering.
so great you guys had a nice date night!!
Those shoes look great, too!!
Super fun date this weekend: we’re going to Palm Springs for my bf’s birthday!! I’m so excited!! Glad you were able to enjoy your sushi last night – I know it would be really tough for me to go 9 months without it so I’m so glad you can still eat some things!! PS: You look amazing!! Pregnancy really agrees with you!
Those rolls look sooo good! I miss sushi. Mike hates seafood, so we never go.
Our last date was to Margaritaville and then to see a showgirls show in Vegas. Pretty exciting.
I love Brooks. I’m rocking the blue and silver Brooks Adrenaline right now!
Jenn @ RunItMyWay
Those shoes are awesome, I’m obsessed with fun running shoes! My current ones are pink, though I’m getting close to due for a new pair soon!
I go through sushi phases- where I’ll want it 5 times a week for 2 months, then I won’t even be able to look at it for 6 months. I think I forget how good it tastes and think too much about the raw thing… Then I have it again and love it.
Looking forward to the new baby post – you’re halfway there, yay!!
Those shoes are fly! I love love me some sushi!! It would seriously be my last meal on earth. Actually I think you just inspired me to get me some sushi today. Happy Good Friday to you!!
I LOVE sushi too. I’ve been eating it a lot lately…nothing raw though ;)
Looks like a fun date night- you two are so cute!! & your hair does look great!
Love Billy’s shoes, especially since the bottoms are two different colors- GOOD LUCK to him on his race!!
Love sushi! Pretty much the only way I’ll eat fish! Philadelphia rolls are my favorite.
And I once also ate a big chunk of wasabi because I thought it was alvocado. I didn’t know fire like that existed.
I LOVE SUSHI!!
The rolls in the photos looks yummy.. I wish I could afford to eat sushi everyday..
I am running in the Reebok Realflex, it’s nice. I like how light it is and the bounce it gives me. I love the design of Billy’s new shoes!
My favorite sushi roll is the rainbow roll. I order it EVERY time I go out for sushi.
I have a pair of Brooks Glycerin 8 shoes. I think they are gorgeous in appearance, but to be honest they haven’t been my favorite. For me, I feel like they don’t absorb the shock of impact as well as some other shoes that I have. But it’s still fun to rotate them in with my other three pairs of running shoes. =) I’m all about variety!
Ooo.. not a sushi fan. Although I did see a kid’s version made with rice krispies and swedish fish inside. That’s my kind!
char eats greens
Seriously…you and Billy have to stop being so cute together. You put me and my husband to shame!!!! Man, I want sushi now. And way to go on that dare…I would totally not turn that one down…especially considering that I soak my sushi in wasabi anyways. Why won’t someone dare me and pay me?!?! haha
Yellow Haired Girl
Is it bad I want sushi for breakfast now? Hahahaha. I just met a friend for sushi on Wednesday – I was craving some salmon sashimi and edamame. Restaurant edamame just always tastes better than what I make at home. It’s the salt, obviously :)
Sushi is the best! And those plates looked amazing! I love sashimi and nigri (where the fish is laid over a chunk of rice). We tend to go to Yo! as it’s the main sushi source in the uk and I love the conveyor belt!
sally @ sally's baking addiction
i’ll take one of each of those sushi rolls please! i’m literally drooling as i sit here eating my boring sandwich :(
I was going to be like “Wait a minute you can’t eat there!!!!” until I saw what was inside the rolls you got, haha!
Happy weekend!! And happy 20 weeks! Don’t you get to find out the gender at 20 weeks?! You are looking so good and happy and glowing – pregnancy agrees with you!! :-)
I love sushi, but can’t afford to eat out these days. Instead our dates are cooking and watching a movie at home. I ran in brooks a couple of times, but find that they don’t hold up very long. I’m a Minuzo girl these days.
I’m seriously addicted to spicy salmon rolls. Seeing the pictures of your rolls is making me want more.
Wow they are some cool shoes :) we had date night the other day. We went to a local restaurant called Flip Flops, it was great. I have never bought shoes online.. I always like to try them on first.
Oh and I LOVE volcano rolls. YUM!
I want sushi now.
Your sushi looks amazing! I might just have to get sushi tonight for dinner. I love it! My husband and I use to eat it once a week, but we haven’t found a good sushi place since we moved.
Billy’s shoes are awesome! He will look super speedy for his next race! I am in the market for new racing shoes but I am hesitant to go with Brooks. I just haven’t tried many of their running shoes. Hopefully we can hear a review on the new shoes after he wears them!
super cool running shoes! :)
Fun plan for Saturday is a spa/facial day with two friends of mine. Then we’ll probably get some Vietnamese or Japanese food for lunch. :D Have a great Easter weekend!
I like tuna sashimi but that is about it. I want to try the Brooks Pure Flow. I tried them on and it was like walking on a cloud. But I am waiting for a sale or coupon. And I would buy them online if I could find a smoking deal.

Barborkas @ BarborkaOnTheRun
I just completed a third run in my new Brooks Green Silence and I am loving them!!! I am curious what will Billy think… They are so light and just let you run fast :-) What is the deal? I am thinking about ordering some more ;-)
Happy Sumo is my husband and my’s favorite restaurant. Mango Mamma, Rock ‘N Roll, Vegas, Cosmo …yum!
