Weird Human Tricks.

I am sharing something very personal with you today.

My sister and I have some special talents.  It took 6 months of dating Billy before I shared this with him, so you should feel privileged.

P.S. My sister and I do have the same dad even though our skin colors may tell you otherwise.

Hopefully the kids at Claybourne’s school don’t see the above picture……he may get a swirly.

The Superman (see below) is something we have worked on since I was 2 and she was 9.  I think we have mastered it.  You can’t see but my toes are pointed to perfection. It is all about technique.

This is our levitation move.  This is the most core work I have done for a month.  We didn’t even plan to do the exact same facial expression.

Our wrists started getting tired so we had to tape them. Injury prevention.

Don’t make fun of the hole in Rachelle’s sock…she was embarrassed but I told her that people wouldn’t even notice because they would be in awe of her form.

If you can’t tell our thumbs are going the wrong way.

We held this for at least 30 seconds.  I don’t have to do weights all week now.

Sadey knew I was tired after all of that and gave me a 20 minute foot massage.  Now if she would only do this after my long runs.

We did fuel properly before all of these exceptional freak show activities.  BBQ chicken, rice, oranges, crescent roll and veggies.

Our family does not skip dessert. Ever. Brownies and ice cream.

I think last night was one of my favorite nights ever. Billy was a great photographer except when he would start laughing so hard that he would miss the perfect shot.

Hope you have an amazing Presidents Day and get an awesome workout/run in!!! LOVE YOU!!!!

———————————————————–

WISH JULIE A HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!

———————————————————

Do you have any weird human tricks? Any suggestions of what we should attempt next?

Does your family have always have dessert at family get-togethers?

What is your President’s Day workout?

13-15 miles…..that is if I am not too sore from all of the acrobatics form last night.

Would you rather have a brownie or ice cream?

-Easy question: Ice cream 100% but if I do say so myself the combination of the two is near perfection.

Ahahahaha you are so impressive! That trick on the stool seriously is amazing. I could NOT do that. I hated not having internet this weekend because it meant I couldn't read your blog! I could never choose between brownies and ice cream, I must have both. :) So glad to be reunited with your blog again!

Brownies are my weakness. Love all the tricks!

I love this post! Sadey is SO adorable I can't stand it! I had a question for the ask anything post. Could you tell us about the shoes you wear while running? Do you wear insole inserts? I am getting into running more and am REALLY confused about what kind of shoe to get!

My skin is elastic-y so I can pull it out a lot more than most people…also I can cross one eye and leave the other one normal.

HAHAHA! I love your tricks- you girls are so strong and flexible!
I am doing ZERO today since I ran a half into a 30 MPH headwind yesterday- enough is enough!
We laways eat dessert in my family. Sometimes before lunch!
I'd choose brownies over IC but wish to have them together…

Reply

The combination of brown and ice cream IS near perfect!

Love the circus show — I can do a few of those too :)

You two are I.M.P.R.E.S.S.I.V.E.
Totally!

Reply

That's so awesome!!! How long did it take you guys to master those tricks?

Reply

13 mile run today. I live really far from my family but when they get together my sister makes at least 3-5 different types of deserts. I am an ice cream person.

Impressive moves! I only have one trick and it is making a spectacular turtle face.

We ALWAYS have dessert. Always.

Ice cream for the win! But I agree, the brownie & ice cream combo is hard to beat.

Reply

I would choose a brownie because I get cold easily! But I do like ice cream, brownies go better with tea!
Love those poses- I used to do those at gymnastics when I was little, but don't think my spine would let me now!
I managed a 6 mile run and I felt good so I loved my workout today :)

Reply

You and your sister are so gorgeous. Seriously.

Workout for the day. May have to hit the gym during lunch and after work for 2 mini workouts. Totally slept in… and I have an appt after work. So hopefully 2 mini sessions will equal 1 decent workout. Lol.

I'm 100% for ice cream. Brownies are ok. Not my fav.

Good job with your crazies! My husband can balance anything (tables, ladders, chairs) on his chin or nose! I know, right?

I ran this morning- 2 miles; I'll run more if you promise to send me some of that brownie. : )

Reply

Wow, circus people! LOL………I was wondering about your sister's sock!

Reply

I can fit my fist into my mouth. : )

Reply

snort. those pictures are amazing. i can put my fist in my mouth too! and my face is rubbery, i make lots of strange faces.

Reply

You & your sister are too funny :)
Love the random-ness of your night. Those are the best! I hope you have a wonderful run today! I knocked out 6 miles this morning, would like to do more later!! :)

Reply

wow!!! I should have not let my boys see those
now guess what they are trying to do..? the double bridge one…I may end up in the ER before lunch time…

Ice cream! always…Brownies way too sweet for me.!!!
Never skip desert at my mom's she is the best baker ever. Hungarian pastries are always an option with something else.

Reply

I am SO impressed! Haha! That is awesome!!! I love the Superman! I'm going to recruit my BFF to be able to do this stuff with me, too.

Reply

Wow, I'm in awe (and a teeny tiny bit creeped out). My President's Day workout was a 2 mile recovery run and now I want to go eat a brownie!

Reply

You have super human strength and should take up yoga! You'd be a master! I can fold my left ear all weird and gross. My kids call it my taco ear. Again, gross!
Today I am taking a rest day after running my first 10 miles yesterday. I think I can see a half marathon in my future. Excited and nervous!
We always have something sweet in our house to eat. I LOVE to bake. There is no substitute for the ice cream brownie combo. I'm not sure I could choose one over the other. Ice cream atop a warm brownie is heaven. Now I'm craving dessert and it's not even lunch time! Have a great Monday!

Reply

Haha!! No joke, when my husband I were dating, I made him do the superman (we called in airplane) with me. Obviously, he passed, we are married!

Ice cream is the best! I live within very easy walking distance of my favorite place for ice cream, Tasty Treat!

Reply

Love it. Looks like y'all had a blast. :)

Reply

Those tricks are too funny! You and your sister look like you adore each other – so sweet. Her hair is amazing!

I vote for ice cream too – after my 11 miler this morning I stood in front of the fireplace drinking a chocolate protein smoothie cuz it makes me think I'm having ice cream.

Reply

My only trick is that I can move one eyebrow up and down independent of the other. That's pretty much my only talent.

Reply

hahaha! I love this. The whole time I was scrolling down, I kept wanting to get on the floor and try all of your tricks. and I love that Billy was the photographer. I had a sunny 8-mile run this morning…starting my shorts tan early this year. I agree that the brownie ice cream combo is amazing. How about brownie ice cream?? Doesn't Ben & Jerry's make that? :)

Reply

Those are some CRAZY stunts girl. I am in no way capable of things like that. I have no cool special talents, at least that I know of.

Reply

You've got some awesome genes in your family!

Reply

We definitely always have dessert at family get togethers even if it's cake from a box mix. On really special occasions we have 7 different kinds of homemade pie. Not even kidding

I got my president's day run in early this morning, just 4 miles but it was the first run since my 2nd half marathon. (and in my new shoes) felt fantastic!

Reply

I'm seven years older than my sister too, except our tricks are a little different.

Reply

you guys are freakishly strong and flexible!

A warm chocolate brownie with vanilla ice cream is Heaven!

Reply

I can pop my hips in and out of socket. Is that a weird trick or really gross??? :)

Reply

my family never skips dessert…and there is no way I could pick ice cream or a brownie…I need both together please :)

you and your sister are awesome!!

Reply

This is hilarious!!! I do some freaky gymnastics moves myself. I am also really proud of my skills in doing the worm!!

Reply

You and your sister are HILARIOUS! I love the crazy human tricks! I am beyond impressed!

Please share your running journal with us! I need inspiration!

Reply

I can do that thumb thing!!!!

I can also do the wiggly finger thing that used to be in the opening credits of The Cosby Show….You might be too young for that one.

My workout for today is going to be P90X Core Synergistics and P90X Cardio. That's almost 2 hours of working out. That's a lot for me. My 11 year old is going to do it with me! She'll probably have better form than me too!

How the heck can I choose????….Can I chop up the brownies and put them in the ice cream?

Reply

You're so funny. My sister and I always used to do weird things like that. I always thought it was the coolest thing when I could put my nose to my upper lip and talk at the same time. It's a very beautiful face I assure you. There may be a reason my boyfriend has not/will not see it ;)

Reply

LOL! I think i did all that in Yoga today. haha. YOu should have joined me and shown off your moves. Wish I had sister like you two!

I am an ice cream girl, through and through!

I would have to take a picture of my weird human trick to show. It is too hard to explain.

Reply

you guys are stinkin' hilarious. I wish I had some weird human tricks, but sadly I do not.

Happy Monday!

Reply

you and your sis need to apply for a MINUTE TO WIN IT!!!! i think its on abc! y'all would win!

Reply

Yes!! And never allow anyone that plays with them more than you do into the house! My mohter plays with my son the ENTIRE time she’s watching him. Then when I get home he’s all You NEVER play with me!! .

Reply

Love your family time and I am amazed at your superhuman powers :)

I don't have any super powers or trickiness. Lame I know!

My workout today is a 30 miles bike ride. I was hoping to get outside, but alas I will once again be riding my trainer inside, sad face.

I prefer brownies to ice cream. But fro-yo kicks brownies' butt in my book. Especially if the fro-yo is drowning in syrupy strawberries!

Happy Pres's Day!

Reply

I am going to try to get 5 in, but will see how my body does since I have been sick and since my half is Sunday.

I typically like brownies, but some vanilla ice with chocolate syrup is perfection too!

Reply

Holy CRAP woman, you are talented. I wish I had the arm stregth to do those moves. NICE.

Reply

Hahahaha LOVE IT! You two are gorgeous!!!

Reply

So I literally sat in front of the mirror from a good ten minutes try to get my mouth to move like yours in the first picture… Epic failure!!!

Reply

My stupid human trick is that I can splay out my toes like fingers (they aren't even long – I have Barney Rubbel feet) and also pick stuff up off the floor with them – like clothes. My husband calls me a freak of nature and that I have monkey toes. Envy is not cute on him.

I can totally rock that first Billy Idol lip thing too.

I would pick brownies for sure. :)

Reply

I used to do all of those same tricks, but alas, I have fallen out of practice. And I never had a partner. I love how the kids are staring at you in amazement. To them you are probably better than the circus! That superman thing is really hard. We try to get people to practice that as a core strengthening exercise in Taekwondo and Jiujitsu, and it is so funny to watch.

Brownies are my favorite. Brownies with ice cream are perfection.

Reply

what THE HECK this is hands down one of the most entertaining things I have ever seen on the internet!! You guys have ag ood act. we need to get you on TV.

Brownies are like, negative 349 on my rank of desserts. Not a fan….Ice cream gets a score of 796.

Reply

SERIOUSLY!? You two could start your own show in Vegas! I'd pay to see it! You are amazing!!!! Holy cow. You two go up 100 points in my cool book. :)

President's Day Workout: 10 mile HILLY trail run at Mission Trails. :) Wahoo!

Wow, I am super impressed!

haha these pics are too funny

Reply

I am dying…those pics are too funny!!!!! When my sister and I get together all we do is those jump in the air and make crazy faces photos. I love those!! And YES…dessert is mandatory. And I made sure to volunteer to bring it so I always get dessert!! Have a great Monday!

Reply

My sister and i used to do stuff like that too!! Lots of me jumping on her and then hanging upside down… one time i fell off and smashed my face on the floor : ( Your tricks are amazing!!

Reply

highly entertaining =) I can do some of those 'tricks' =) I don't think my sis can so you guys have that on me lol

Reply

ahhaa, I looove this.

and that first face? that's a fave in my family as well. twinsies!

I hafta say, if the brownie is undercooked enough, I'd go for that over ice cream. but if the ice cream has crazy good toppings, I'd snag that baby.

however, all in all, I agree, the two together is perfection, brownie preferably heated up. ;)

Reply

Oh my! Thanks for the laughs! You two would fit in just fabulously with me and my sisters!!! It is very very sad that I am actually looking at those pictures and attempting those poses. I'm like 0 for 4-ha!

Give me the Brownie or better yet the brownie batter bowl and the spoon!!

Have a great run:)

Reply

This is epic. I love the faces at the beginning!
4 miles today and rowing. :) And ice cream, 100%. Thanks for the reminder to put it on the shopping list.

Reply

Awesome tricks!!

I am all about the ice cream!

Reply

Hiliarous pictures! You should do some yoga. I used to do the thumb trick all the time in elementary school.
Ice cream of course – preferably Ben & Jerrys!

Reply

Thanks. I will take this post to my grave.

Reply

Haha I need to work on my upper arm strength to keep up with that!!

Reply

Ditto to Jenn's comment, except it would be me and my husband. I'm off trying those poses:)

Reply

Wow your quite strong! Very impressive!! :)

I had an easy run today, and you know my answer to the dessert question!!

Reply

Wow – I am truly amazed by your acrobatics. You must have super strong guns. I have no weird tricks but I wish I did. My family never skips dessert either, we were recently waiting in a consulation room for the dr. to come in and tell us how my grandma's surgery went and we completely rearranged the room so we could all sit around a table and eat the mini pie and giant whoopie cookie we brought, then we got frosting all over the doctor's table. I am resting after a race and I have a sinus infection but I have got in some serious ab work with all my coughing. And to answer your final question: BOTH. Every time. Hope you have a great run!

Reply

Those are some…special…skills you got going there! haha

You and your sisters should consider modeling with those poses!

Reply

You make me laugh–but I am freaking amazed at your flexibility and strength!!! You should join your friend in Vegas for Cirque de Soleil!!

I am playing "sick" on President's day (shhh) and got in a great speed workout!! Now I get to go grocery shopping and hang out with the hubs (no practice due to snow!) yay!

You and your sis are beautiful–even upside down!!

Reply

haha, you two are too funny! i love all the poses!

no workout today as i ran long sat and again on sunday, which i never do…i was provoked.

have a good day lady!

Reply

That is SO AWESOME!! I actually didn't think it was possible for me to be MORE in awe of you than I already am!! K, and you're getting a new Emma-shaped addition to your fam. Just thought you should know:)

And that would actually be totally perfect, since I'm a brownie person all the way!! You can eat all the ice-cream, and I can eat all the brownies, deal?!

LOVE ya girlie!! Enjoy your run!! Cross-training day for me today, so ellipticaling methinks:)

Reply

i do not believe that your sister is 7 years older than you…please tell me those children belong to another sibling?? because thats not fair if she has also given birth

Reply

Love this post, you two are so beautiful and talented!

Reply

Are you still taking ask me anything questions? I want to know how often, if ever you wear heels? Do you wear them to work? Just wondering :) I just bought a new pair today but I'm not really sure why because I hardly where them any more!

Reply

I LOVE this post! Sisters are so awesome. You two are hilarious!

Reply

You and your sister are hilarious…and freakishly strong!

I'm teaching yoga tonight, so that is my workout…may or may not run still. Oh and ice cream over brownies…EVERY TIME!

Reply

so funny!! You and your sis are models!! So pretty!!

workout- 15 miles w/hills…ice-cream over brownies! You're way more talented than moi…no tricks for me besides standing on one leg!! (hmmmm…I bet 99.9% of people can do that one tho!! :) )

have a great monday!!

Reply

Hahah this is soo funny!! |
I want you to know that my youngest step-son saw some of this pics and was like "that's so easy!" I dared him to do it and told him its so not easy!! He agreed after trying a few tricks a couple of times. It was fun/funny tho lol.

We normally have dessert at family dinners… my sister and i would go crazy looking for a piece of chocolate after every dinner. literally tare the house apart!
and most definitely i would rather have brownier AND icecream TOGETHER!!

Reply

You guys are awesome! Is your sister single? I'll buy her some new socks!

Reply

This post was awesome!! Love all the crazy tricks! You and your sis are so pretty and strong! Can't believe all that core strength and muscle's! Wahoo!! You are right…your sister is a professional, her hair always looks amazing!!

Reply

HAHAHA I love you times a million, my sister and I have perfected the superman too, we should have a competition! Slash We both have the same crazy human tricks, but I can also roll my tummy..it sounds strange and I promise you it is hilarious, my stomach rolls like a wave, it has been my talent since I was itty bitty. Slash the Padre and I did not get in out workout this morning, we were too tired and slept in an extra hour before college tours:( BUT it is okay, we basically walked the entire expanse of Washington DC.

Slash brownies all the way!! Fudgy wudgy goodness:)

Reply

Wow! Seriously, you are both amazing. Those strength moves look really hard. hahaha. I have three sisters and they mean the world to me so its awesome to see these pictures of you having so much fun with yours <3

Did your sister run all 20 miles with you too? Those are some genes you have in your family!

Reply

Ha! I love it. You and your sister are too funny. And both gorgeous!!

Reply

Information is power and now I’m a !@#$ing dictator.

Reply

This has to be my favorite post of yours. :) You two are so talented & funny!!

Reply

This is awesome. I'm double jointed in my elbows and it kind of looks gross but it's nowhere near as cool as what you and your sister can do.

Reply

two person somersaults, cartwheels, and back handsprings. and illusions. SO. MUCH. FUN

Reply

I would take the brownie, but only if it was BURIED in icing!

Reply

That stool trick is freaking awesome, you guys are ripped!! I don't think I can do that.

I like how the kids are watching on while you do the superman :)

I can't think of any tricks, but my husband's family seems to have this ability to "clap with one hand". They look special.

Ice Cream > Brownies unless it's a fresh warm brownie, then I'll take it with ice cream. Nothing more disappointing than a stale hard brownie.

Pres Day workout: 1 hour of spin.

Reply

I can do that with my mouth too like you and your sister. I am the only one who can do it in my family, think it's a genetic thing that only the most awesome can do :) I like candy especially some peanut butter cups on my ice creams

Reply

Wow those are some crazy talents!!! Looks like fun though!!!

I love brownies and ice cream. I don't think I can choose. I prefer them together.

I am in amazement over the human tricks the both of you can do

ICE CREAM, my favorite is banana splits, I can justify the ice cream if I have a ton of fruit in it

Reply

Yesss, the superman! We used to do those growing up…I had completely forgot until you posted this :)

Reply

That is awesome! I think my sister and I have new goals to set for ourselves!! Can't wait to show her these pics! ;)
