I don’t know what that chocolate thing is, but I kinda want to eat it for breakfast now. And lunch. And maybe dinner? :)

Have a great Saturday!

Have fun on the run this morning! I just had to say my daughter has had those wooden cookies since she was about Brooke’s age. She is 5 and still plays with them. I gave her a little lady bug kitchen timer and when it goes off she says “Cookies are ready!”. I never get tired of it.

I would love to run where you do! I bet it is so beautiful! Looks like you had a wonderful day! I am off to run at the good ol’ gym on the treadmill!

Awesome!

My day yesterday in word pictures:

*caring for a surgically repaired ankle and reminding my hub that he cannot drive with the meds he’s on in his system.

*crawling laps around the blanket in the living room (my niece and nephew decided to join their cousin). (Would this be a prelude to track workouts?)

*my face in sheer joy when I found cotton scented citronella candles on sale at Target for 70% off!

*a tiny bit of yoga and core work.

Brooke looks SO cute with that headband!! That chocolate thing in the second picture… I need it!!! :)

30 miles in the mountains this morning for me (if I make it that far)! I haven’t run more than 15-ish since my May 50-miler, so not sure this is going to be the most sensible run ever…but when did I ever claim to be sensible?!

Reply

And I hope you enjoy your run! I’ll be thinking of you!

Reply

That chocolate thing looks amazing!!

Up at 5am as it’s race day! Does anyone ever get out of bed at the time excited for the race? Ugh I’m sleepy ;)

Reply

The only thing better than 10 miles in the mountains is the 7 miles I got to run with my mom this morning :) (Though I think both of us would have preferred 10 in the mountains!)

Reply

That dessert… oh my. Looks delicious.

Reply

Glad I’m not the only one who is all like… Wha?! That first dessert! I never saw such a thing, but now I’m sad that I haven’t! Looks unreal.

Reply

I love Gold Medal Ribbon from Baskin’ Robbins! My FAV ice cream flavour ever :) Good choice Janae!

Love all the pictures of Brooke and her cousins :)

Reply

Enjoy your Saturday! I’m doing The Color Run this morning and I’m so excited!!

Reply

whatever that chocolate thing is…i want it! have an amazing 10 mile run in the mountains!

Reply

I’m seriously so envious of your ability to run back to back days at such high mileage. Ever since I’ve ITBS I haven’t been able to go back to back days if its over 2miles. What’s the secret?!?!?!?

Reply

If I had Curly’s hair, I would be an extremely happy person. Have a great run and I hope you don’t run into any mountain lions! ;)

Reply

I need that ice cream!!! It’s only 8am though so maybe ill hold off:)

Never a dull moment in Utah…love how many things you get out and do with so many friends and Curly too!! If you stay in Utah her and Brook will be as close as you and your sisters…which is very cool!!

Your food always makes my mouth water too!! YUM!

Reply

Carrying Brooke while giving Curly a ride on your back = cross training.

Reply

That little boy is definitely stylish. So cute! I’m going to come visit and let’s just eat all the desserts. Who needs real food when dessert is an option?

Reply

Please describe what that chocolate bomb thing is. I THINK I NEED ONE.

Enjoy your mountain run…tell me about the hardest hill so I can pretend I’m there. Hard hills are my fave. They are the best place to test one’s mettle :)

That ice cream looks delicious and defies the laws of gravity, just like ice cream should!

Family are the best, especially sisters :) Also, did your niece win a fish or something?!

Reply

I had a friend give me one of those chocolate cake mousse things from kneaders after watching her kids for her. I think that should be our countries new currency. Best dessert ever.

Reply

Off topic: Did you know there are candy corn Oreos? Just saw them at Target.

Reply

Brooke’s headband is so cute! And what is that chocolate thing? It looks amazing!

Reply

That ice cream cone looks incredible. But not nearly as good as Brooke’s cookies.

Reply

Where do you go running in the mountains? I am always looking for new places to run.

Reply

Good luck on your run! I have 9.5 on my agenda tomorrow!

Looks like you guys had a great day! Brooke is learning to make cookies early on! Yay!

I have been stalking/following you for a while now and I can’t get enough of your little Brooker. She makes me want a little munchkin of my own. Your posts have helped me get through a running injury that has been plaguing me for 4 years. I am up to 7 miles now thanks to your encouraging words and my awesome PT! Love your blog!

Reply

That just made me excited for a quick second! When I saw that little boy, I thought… wow! He looks really familiar! Then when I saw his mom I knew I was right! My hubby was in the same class as her hubby in Oakley, Idaho (I won’t include names just in case ;). Small world!

What a fun day! Brooke’s outfits are always adorable too!
