Hello dear friends…….I have some more disney pictures for today because I took 354, so of course you are going to have to deal with a few more.  If you are here for the workouts then you can always click on my TRAINING page if you are sick of me talking about how I think I should quit my job as a teacher, move to Cali while billy is still in school and pursue becoming a Disney princess (I can do an amazing impersonation of Snow White).

1.   This picture has two tangents.

IMG 7653

1a.  I convinced my mom to go on a roller coaster with me yesterday.  It was Thunder Mountain. The whole time we were on the rideI had to have my arm around her holding her in place because she was getting thrown around and repepating, “oh, dear” ever 2 seconds.  I am a great daughter.  Okay, she did love it and at one point she could not stop laughing.

1b.  She told me yesterday that she has been wearing some old Hawaii souvenier shirts on a daily occasion to try and subliminally message my dad that she wants to go back.  She is a smart woman and dad if you are reading this…….you need to take her:)

——————————————————————–

2.  Some of you may think that I am a great aunt but what I don’t show you is the fact that……

I take pictures of them when they are really grumpy….

and sometimes tie her to the fence while we go on Splash Mountain.

IMG 7549

I am just kidding, it only took her about 2 minutes before figuring out how to get it off the fence.  At least I gave her a sucker.

PS she may look sweet and inncocent but she has her moments and runs away like a crazy woman and so the leash was a necessity in the huge crowds.

———————————————————————————

3.  I may have ridden the rocket ride the entire time with my hands out like that.  It just felt cool, plus it helped out the armpits mid day.

———————————————————————–

4. And one more just for fun.  If your kids are just a little bit too short to get on a ride.  Fill their shoes with a stack of credit cards.

IMG 7602

It worked and Indiana Jones turned out to be her favorite ride.

———————————————————————-

Tell me some tangents about you!!!!!

Do you have curly, straight or wavy hair?

-My hair is pin straight.  As a kid it was curlier but now it is straight. I am hoping my neices stays curly like that…..her mom’s hair is really curly!

Random question of the day…..Are you a fast/slow/medium eater?

-I am a FAST eater….growing up with 3 brothers, if you didn’t eat fast, your food would be gone by the growing teenage boys.

I am a crazy fast eater. I always feel like I took my time, but usually it’s 5 minutes. Fail!

I have wavy hair but I straighten it!

Reply

I use to have curly hair but with both of my pregnancies my hair got straighter!

I try to eat slow but with a 6 yr old and a 3 yr old I feel like some days I inhale my food!!

I love love love all your pictures of Disneyland!!

Stacks of credit cards–very clever! I’ll be in your neck of the woods in a couple of weeks (although I imagine you won’t be there!). I’m running the Timp Half. Should be fun!

I hope you can get back to running soon! Although Disneyland with family is probably even more fun. :)

I am a super fast eater too. We had Belgian waffles last night and I started eating mine after my hubs, but I was done before him. Not sure if that’s something to be proud of or not. ;)
My hair has a mind of its own, but I guess I’d call it “wavyish”. It was ringlets when I was young, but that went away as I got older.
A tangent about me related to hair is that I don’t own a hair brush. If I brush my hair, it looks like I stuck my finger in a light socket. I comb it out of the shower and then it does what it wants or gets put in a ponytail. Great photos from Disneyland! Glad you had fun. :)

You guys know how to pack in the fun at Dland! Love the credit card trick-ha! My kiddos can all ride the big stuff now & my youngest will go on Tower of Terror even though I’m too chicken. Which is my tangent: I’m more cautious in a lot of ways since becoming a mom & my hair that was once super straight in now wavy…..hormones!
I try to savor slowly at meal time but when the rest of the family finishes in 5 min it’s hard to do!
Loved your photos!!

I have wavy hair!!! And it’s nit very healthy because I love to cut and dye it!!! But now I have supaa pretty hair extensions so it looks healthy and thick and nice!!
I am a fasssstttt eater but then I am done before everyone and it is so sad hahaha

Reply

Cute disney pics! I am super jealous..!

I have fairly wavy hair – but it never “waves” the way I want it to so I am forced to give it some help with either a straightener or a curling iron.

I eat SO fast. I blame it on my husband. I have started eating a lot faster since I eat most of my meals with him now!

Reply

I’m a wavy-haired girl. Ooh lalala :D.

Reply

I guess your niece finally got sick of her sunhat?

I am a crazy fast eater, but I used to try to slow down to match the pace of guys I was on dates with. Luckily I don’t have to do that anymore even though I married a slow eater, he doesn’t get grossed out.

Random about being a disney princess: When I was on high school drill team we did a trip to CA every year which included Disneyland. One year we did a workshop with a casting agent there and we did some mock auditions and she would tell you what she would cast you as. Now some girls were told they would be chosen as Cinderella or Ariel or whatever but I was told I would be cast as Goofy. That’s right, a male character whose face is hidden under a mask. Thanks a lot lady!

hahahah the credit cards! can’t believe that.

i have SUPER straight hair and am definitely a fast eater.

Reply

Wavy hair, it was more curly but after straightening it daily for years it has learned a tad ;)
A fast eater for sure!

Reply

Janae, you crack me up! Your family is so precious. I love your mom’s subliminal messages, and your sister putting credit cards in her daughter’s shoes. Such a smart idea! I have curly hair. It was straight as a kid, now it’s a curly bird’s nest. :)

Reply

HAHA my husband told my daughter to do that to get on a roller coaster! I was not happy! LOL

Reply

i have wavy crazy hair that refuses to be tamed! and way too many flyaway hairs that area always driving me crazy! haha…oh well. :)

luv ur pix and bring on the dland picture overload!! hey, u’ve almost got enough for one a day for an entire year. ;)

it got to be where i’d inhale all my food before anyone else was even halfway done so i’ve consciously tried to slow down my pace…lol!

Reply

I loved that you guys filled her shoes with credit cards! That is so smart!

Reply

I used to have straight hair up until about 7th grade, then suddenly it was like I woke up with wavy/curly hair!

Reply

Curly hair, although today I straightened it and I’m a slooooow eater. I’ve even gotten my husband to slow down while he eats :)

Have fun!

Reply

I love thunder mountain railroad! My favorite! I want to be at Disneyland so bad right now!

I am a super fast eater, and I eat a ton. I have two brothers, but I always ate more and faster than they did!

Reply

my hair is SOOOO straight. And I am growing it out. Whhheeee :)

Nice credit card trick. Gotta try that for later on down the road when the kiddos whine, ya know?!

I am super slow eater….I guess I like to savor every bite?

Reply

If a child is on a leash and it has elmo on it, does that make the kid feel like they are super cool and less like a dog? I don’t know, I have just always thought that child leashes are a funny thing!

Reply

Hair — straight, thin wavy —all of the above!! (major point of frustration) LOVE you went on that coaster with your mom… Aren’t mom’s GREAT???
I’m a slow eater at the table (prob. because I ate so much cooking, I’m stuffed!) hee hee

Reply

i am WAY too fast of an eater i need to SLOW DOWN and enjoy my food instead of inhaling it lol
and um straight hair all growing up then come high school it got wavier and wavier and now it have like legit spirals. crazyyy

Reply

I have board straight hair and A LOT of it. My sister has spiral curly hair. Not sure how that happened.

I am FAST eater. We only had 20 minutes to eat lunch in High School and that included the time it took to get your lunch if you were eating at the school. Growing up, I was the slowest eater because I wanted to talk and ask a lot of questions. I’m usually the first one done eating. However, when I’m pregnant, I’m always the last. Probably because there isn’t much room in there for the food to go down smoothly. Thank God for Zantac!

Reply

I have VERY curly hair and I LOVE it. The rest of my sisters have straight hair… I’m still convinced that I was adopted or another man’s baby, cuz I just don’t add up hahahaha

I eat pretty fast. I try really hard to SLOW down because I know I should. Well at least, I’ve heard it’s better for you to eat meals slowly.

Reply

Do you have curly, straight or wavy hair?

– I have short, curly brown hair. Basically gave up on the long hair dream when I realized long hair on me = frizz + split ends. I looked a lot like your niece when I was little – full of blonde curls.

Random question of the day…..Are you a fast/slow/medium eater?

– Fast. Which definitely gives my diet no help.

Reply

Hahaha, you crack me up. That’s so funny about your mom’s t-shirts. And your niece’s leash. Child leashes kill me, I love it. I would be so nervous in a crazy place like Disneyland with a child that tends to roam!!

My hair is kind of wavy. If I commit to the waviness and let it air dry with some product in it to help, it can turn to wavy/curly and be pretty. But I generally prefer it straight, especially since I cut 11 inches off a couple of months ago.

And I usually eat fast. I was a really slow eater as a child…not sure what happened along the way.

Reply

You are so NOT late for Triple Tangent WEDNESday!

I have a crazy runner kid, too… no judgement on the leash whatsoever. Wavy hair… really coarse. And I am super fast eater… but I eat in order… least liked thing first, saving the best for last :)

Reply

I pretty much fell on the floor laughing over the credit cards in the shoes…. BRILLIANT!!

My hair is stick straight and can only hold a curl for like 1 hour or less. Ugh…

I eat fast because my boyfriend does. Sometimes I wish we would spend more time staring into each others’ eyes at restaurants. lol yeah right.

Reply

My hair is slightly wavy, but not a cute, let it air-dry wave. Just enough that I need to either straighten it or curl it with my CHI

Reply

My hair, if dried naturally, is pretty wavy. If a blow dryer even comes near it, it’s straight as a stick.

I’m a terribly slow eater. Like, the one everyone is looking at to hurry up and get finished. I think I probably gab too much?

Reply

My hair is crazy curly naturally, although I am a pro at straightening it when I want…

I’m a medium eater. Joe (the hubs) is the world’s fastest eater. He’s a really noisy eater, too. It’s equal parts awe-inspiring and embarrassing.

I take pictures of my students when they’re cranky ALL the time! HI.larious. It’s when they’re the cutest.

Reply

I am SUCH a fast eater. It’s gross and something I’m trying to actively work on. :)

My hair is also stick straight. One time I convinced my mom to let me get a perm and my hair was so straight that it fell out the next day! I was so sad.

Reply

I have super curly hair and although sometimes I straighten it… any humidity makes it go crazy!!

I used to eat super slow when I was a kid. My dad always ate slow so we were always eating by ourselves at the table because everyone else was finished! However, since I have become a teacher and I have all of 30 minutes to eat my lunch now I am super fast!:)

Reply

Those pictures are just gorgeous! You definitely look like you had a great time and now I want to go back to Disneyland so badly! Good thing B. loves Disneyland and lives in LA. Wonder if we have time to go this trip…

Reply

I am so stealing your mom’s idea and am going to start wearing shirts that say “A+” on them to send subliminal messages to my professors :)
My hair has a mind of its own, but mostly wavy – did ya know a woman’s hair changes texture around 7 times in her lifetime?
You look so happy it your pics, lovin’ it!

Reply

I have frizzy/straight/thick does whatever it wants until I flat iron it hair. I guess you could call it “combination”!

I eat SUPER fast!! It’s a promblem really, because I also overfill my plates. I eat so fast that I don’t realize I’m full until after I ate enough for a week.

My son eats slow. It actually annoys me. Is that bad?

Reply

I love roller coasters… Thunder Mountain is a good one…. and Splash Mountain too. I am not a fan of Space Mountain, really.

So, do they still have those fudgsicles shaped like Mickey Mouse? Love them.

Reply

I love that y’all put credit cards in their shoes to make them taller!!

I have curly/wavy hair. If I decide to wash it, it’s curly, but that doesn’t happen too often, so it’s mostly wavy. My hair was board straight until I hit puberty, gahhh.

I’m a fast eater. I always try to eat slowly, but it never happens!

Reply

I super love her leash! reminds me of being a kiddo! Your mom is sooo adorb!!

Right now I am playing along with Wheel of Fortune and avoiding/procrastinating doing my Pilates homework. Yes I have homework while trying to become a teacher!
For dinner I sauteed kale in garlic and olive oil, added zucchini with S&P and then tossed those veggies in some carrot almond soup from a box…it looked gourmet but it was super easy, super healthy and super filling!!

Reply

I love the credit cards in the shoes. I would’ve never though of that!
I’m an insanely fast eater. I have to remind myself to slow down when I’m with others otherwise I’m done when they’re on their 3rd bite.

Reply

That is hilarious about the shoes!!

Reply

Oh my god. I am such a fast eater. It is a PROBLEM

Reply

I have wavy hair. I wear it straightened, but if I diffuse it, it turns into an Afro. So I’m pretty lucky – I get it all!

I’m a faaaaast eater! Too fast, sometimes.

Reply

I like to eat fast so I can eat more (like sushi). Ur niece is so cute. Wish I had leash for my kids when they were little (fast little suckers, they were)

Reply

Your nieces are too cute! And I love the leash thingy – that is totally practical and I just wish they made them for grown men too :-) Zak always wanders off from me in crowds!
My hair has a naturally wavy (read: frizzy) texture, and I am a slow eater. Despite this fact, Zak still eats 4x as much as I do and sometimes that last 1x is so I don’t get a second serving.

Reply

Some parts are curly, some straight , some wavy. Annoying hair, but lots of it, so that’s cool. but I’d love that blond curly hair, adorable. Your pics are great

I eat like a horse and I do it fast. Grew up with an older brother too, so you know.

Reply

So jealous of your Disneyland trip!

My hair is wavy….but not in a way that it’s pretty…just in an “I always have to dry and fix my hair or it looks like a limp shaggy mess” kind of way. I wish it would be one or the other :(

I’m a fast eater. I was talking to my BIL and he randomly remembered a time at Chili’s that I had finished my food before he was 1/4 of the way done. Oops…I have since tried to slow down…

Reply

I have straight hair. I eat like a horse too, you have to be fast to be able to eat thirds before people take notice. =]

I am a super fast eater. When I’m out for a meal I have to try very hard to eat at the pace of the table.

Awww. these such cute photos…again! :-) I love love love your Mum’s subliminal messaging technique. That is hilarious! Mr Hungry Runner Girl’s Dad…take her to Hawaii, lol! :-P
Hmmm…I am definitely a fast eater. Too fast. Especially if I eat while reading blogs…I devour food so fast I don’t realise what I am doing until after. Not good, lol! :-D
My hair is really really wavy and thick but I got a keratin treatment (yey for groupon!) a couple of months ago so now I am loving wearing it down without having to whip out the straighteners. So fun to not have hair like a thick bush or shrub!! <3 xyx

I love how your mom is wearing the Hawaii shirt to send subliminal messages!! Haha! that’s awesome !! Cali looks like its treatin ya well ;)

Reply

My hair is really curly and this Georgia humidity is not on my side! You add in the fact that it is red and boy oh boy how traumatic of childhood does that make for? :-)
I eat so fast I usually don’t remember what I ate or what it tasted like. It magical more like an inhilation of food!

We bought my daughter wedge sandals to wear to get on rides one year when she was just a little too short! What great examples we are following the rules!

Reply

Looks like so much fun! I love coasters! :) Your poor mom haha! I hope she had fun and I hope she gets to go back to Hawaii!

Kid leashes crack me up…but seriously, the crowds at theme parks are crazy and I see why they are needed!

I’m a medium eater….although sometimes I tend to eat certain things quicker like cereal.

I have straight hair, but it’s never all the way straight, I still have to straighten it to get that pin straight look.

Reply

The stack of credit cards is an awesome idea! I used to have straight hair but as I got older, it got wavy. Oh wells, I miss straight though

Reply

You tied her to a fence!!! You are my favorite person ever today. I am cracking up at work and people are looking at me like i’m crazy.

My hair was wavy until I turned 21 and then it went crazy lion’s mane curly!

I’m such a slow eater and I eat lunch every day with a chick who is like a speed eater. It’s crazy. I feel like I’m under all this pressure to finish.

Oh my gosh, I love you guys!!!
First, your Mom’s idea is BRILLIANT!! :D I need to do that – just put money signs on my shirt, maybe my boss will give me a raise- haha!!
Second, love the leash. I had one of those too. I look back on pictures & have to ask my parents what in the world were they doing to me, leashing me up & all!! LOL! It works though, at least you know where you kid is at all times :)
Third, credit card idea…best thing ever!!!!

Reply

BAHAHAHA! That cracked me up so bad! I never would of thought to fill up the shoes with credit cards…will be trying that with my niece lol. I love the grumpy pic of your niece…and the one where you had her leash on the fence haha. You should make a post for everyone to make a comment and talk your dad into taking your mom back to Hawaii! Pressure always works =)! Have a great Thursday!

Reply

So fun!

I have naturally curly hair, but it didn’t start getting curly until I was a teenager. Before that it was just wavy.

I am a fast eater. My husband thought he was, but when I’m done, he’s only halfway through his plate!

I am an absurdly fast eater. With 5 brothers (and a couple of sisters as well), we ate fast or the food would be gone! I’ve tried so hard to slow down, but overall, I’m still ridiculously fast with my food.

Reply

ha ha, I love the credit card idea!!! I used to be a fast eater, having 3 siblings growing up we ate fast to get the most. :-) But i’m better at slowing down now.

And i have wavy hair and blow dry it straight every morning!

Pictures of the curly one are so cute, even if she is cranky. My hair is naturally messy, sometimes it wants to be straight sometimes curly, mostly it is somewhere in between and I look like a weirdo if I don’t manage it.
