As you know, it was a big day yesterday. Curly turned 5. Birthdays are actually my favorite things in the world so we will be celebrating her birth all week long.
We blindfolded my niece and took her to one of her (and my) favorite places, The Provo Beach Resort.
Yes, Brooke is wearing some ultra stylish shiny black boots.
The kids bowling lanes. I LOVE that they have these for the little kiddos because this way they actually get a chance to bowl.
The carousel where Brooke talked to her horse the entire time she was on it.
After lots of arcade games the girls were ready for ice cream.
Turns out Brooke does love ice cream when she can steal it from my niece. The grass is always greener…
I had a baked potato for dinner at home and played with the Brookester and once she went to bed I went over to Paige’s for the night. Her husband was out of town yesterday so I took it upon myself to keep her entertained.
-Painting our nails
-Extreme Cheapskates (Netflix has it now… this show is addicting. We couldn’t stop watching it)
And an early morning run with the girls. When I got back in my car AFTER our run this morning the thermostat said that it was TWENTY SIX DEGREES. 26.
Probably not the best thing for my DSLR but I think we have a future photographer/blogger on our hands. We are working on blog names for her right now.
What kind of camera do you use?
-Top 4 pictures with my Nikon D7000 and last 3 pictures with my phone.
What was the last picture you took? How many pictures on average do you take a day?
Are your nails painted right now? What color?
Favorite sundae toppings?!
The last picture I took was of my new skirt I’m wearing today. Hmm, Oreos, choc chips, sprinkles, hot fudge, whipped cream! I need to paint my nails…badly. Brooke’s boots are awesome.
Aimee - funfitgirl
sprinkles!! and more sprinkles. topped off with dark chocolate m&ms.
I take about 20 pictures a day for my blog and use only about 4. Right now I just use my phone…I should invest in a better camera for sure.
nails are currently OPI “Berlin There, Done That”
Can’t believe how cold it is where you are!
I Painted my nails with glitter polish last week and I CANNOT get it off! I have patches of glitter on every nail, it looks awful. No glitter polish ever again…I’m too old for it anyway!
Sonia the mexigarian
I have a Canon Rebel… something or other. haha. I haven’t used it in a while. It gets banged around in my purse tho. I tend to use my iPhone to take pictures and the last picture I took was of my oatmeal. The one before that was of my cats :) I have a gazillion photos of my fur babies. Nails are not polished. I paint and it gets all over my hands so rather pointless to polish my nails.
Favorite sunday topping hotfudge with nuts of some sort and maybe sprinkles!
I won’t complain of my 42* temps in the am runs anymore. I cannot imagine running in 29*. That’s just toooo cold for me.
Laura @ Live, Run, Sparkle
Aww looks like an awesome birthday celebration! That sundae looked so good with the bananas on it, oh man.
My nails are painted clear with sparkles (very mature, ahem). And I usually take pictures with my phone and about 4 per day, but unlimited if I’m doing/seeing something cool. I also have a Canon Rebel but I rarely bring it out with me because its too bulky and I’m afraid I’ll break it
Ashten @ Southern class and a bit of Sass
I keep having to remind myself to take pictures because a blog sure is boring with nothing to look at! I love vanilla ice cream with chocolate fudge or carmel. Pretty simple & boring but so good. Nails are painted a carmel/ coffee color.
Brooke is a fashionista!
Michelle @ A Healthy Mrs
I have a Canon Rebel T3i, but am usually too lazy to bring it around so my iPhone gets used most of the time :)
Colleen @ CSmithRun
I need a mani/pedi really badly. I’m afraid though because one of my toenails is going to fall off…oh the joys of running.
Favorite sundae toppings are M&M’s and anything else that has to do with chocolate!
Last pic I took was of the care package my mom sent me today! It depends on the day but anywhere around 3-15 a day!
Right now my nails are a dark maroon ish color. And chipping. They need re painted asap.
Sundae toppings = reese’s, caramel, whipped cream, and sometimes chocolate chips
I hardly ever have my nails painted! I’m so rough on them that the polish only looks good for a day or two, and I can’t justify the cost and time very often. Normally only for special occasions…
And I use my husbands camera, an SLR of some kind but no idea the specific model.
Ashley @ My Food N Fitness Diaries
Brooke is already a fashionista rocking all of her cute boots these days!
So glad you were able to have a fun girls’ night! Soooo necessary every once in awhile!
I have a Canon Point & Shoot and Canon Rebel, but mostly just use my point & shoot and my phone. Nails are currently painted a dark gray. I’m in a nail painting phase these days. It comes and goes. Favorite sundae toppings would be hot fudge, hot peanut butter, and whipped cream.
megan @ theveryhungryrunner
You literally have the cutest child in the world. That’s all.
Katie @ Bevo Loves an Aggie
I am so bad at taking pics. I have a crappy digital camera, but I usually use my iPhone. And I never remember to take pictures! The last picture I took was of my multiple lunch boxes that I take to work! (Random!)
I can’t paint my own nails, so they’re plain until I pay to get them done!
I love caramel on sundaes!
dang that is cold! I didn’t realize it got so cold last night/this morn. Crazy!
No nail polish on my fingers right now…but maybe soon?
Mmmm sundaes–def caramel & almonds!
Victoria @ brilliantVconfessions
Hi!…I am obsessed with nail polish, I think I am more recently obsessed with running, shhhh no one tell the nail polish. I have over 200 bottles of OPI and China Glaze in the collection. I actually just got off my 4 day staycation for my first wedding anniversary so I took my polish off this morning…I will paint tonight? What color is now the question?
Sundae – snow caps is my favorite – seems only to be at Fro Yo places though.
Her pigtails are TOO CUTE.
I always use my phone but have a Nikon d200 available. IPhones do a good job :)
The last pic I took was of a bowl of oatmeal. DUH.
My nails aren’t painted right now but you are inspiring me! I dress pretty girly but for some reason love to go “goth” on the nails with the dark. The rebel comes out! Ha.
Brooke is awesome :)
Elizabeth @ my neon running shoes
Sundaes should be topped with warm caramel and hot fudge!
The Provo Beach Resort looks so fun, especially for the kiddos. I love that they have a bowling alley.
I have a Canon Rebel t3i. I probably take 100 pics a day…maybe more! My nails are almost never painted…but I do love a good french manicure.
I love fresh fruit and brownie bites on top of vanilla or chocolate fro-yo. I like to keep it simple :)
Last picture I took was a selfie at finishing line of the New York City Marathon. (Boo-yah!). I can see why it’s your favorite. It is now mine as well.
Amanda @ .running with spoons.
The last picture I took was one of a chocolate glazed donut that I just snacked on, and I used my Canon EOS7D. Nails are currently painted in Essie’s Over the Edge, aaaaand the best topping for sundaes is hot caramel sauce :D
Katie Did What
Aww I love that they have kiddie bowling!! Such a great idea! :) We just got a new camera- a Canon Rebel T3i, and I looooove it! My nails are pretty much always painted, if they aren’t, I feel naked. Right now they’re deep plum. Great for fall!
Miranda @ Lovely Wife Lovely Life
It was 15 degrees walking to class this morning. It was horrible!!! Seems like Montana & Utah seem to be sharing weather ;) Last night Christian and I watched 6 episodes of Cake Boss… some shows are addicting!
meredith @ The Cookie ChRUNicles
I am all about the toppings. I could eat the toppings without the ice cream but not the other way around…Hot fudge, whipped cream, crunchies, chocolate chips, cookie dough….and a cherry….My nails haven’t been without polish in easily 20 years. I get them done every week to 10 days. Right now I am sporting Essie’s Gucci, Mucci, Pucci – love light pink because you hardly notice if it chipped.
Elise @ 9toFit.com
I’m looking into upgrading from my iPhone camera to an actual real camera lol I know pathetic. Any recommendations?
Last picture I took was of my daughter sitting with one of my dogs:) and I probably take like 30 pictures of her a day with my phone, I wish I used my Canon T1i more (but it doesn’t fit in my pocket like my phone does!) my toes are OPI something magenta, really kind of red (go Bulls!). I think instead of anything sundae I would pick warm chocolate chip cookies with vanilla ice cream and whip cream YUM!!!
Oh my gosh… I started watching Extreme Cheapskates on Netflix this past weekend. Couldn’t stop watching! I try to be as frugal as the next person but good lord… showering with my clothes on and taking leftovers from other patrons’ plates at restaurants will never be an option. EVER!
My favorite sundae topping is more sundae…and then probably some crushed up snickers on top!
And Brooke is adorable as always!
Leigha @ Minougirl
I really want a real camera.. my iPhone pics are not that great! The last pic I took was of my pumpkin pie for dessert:) I probably take 10-15 pics a day! That one of Brooke and Curly is great… Curly is thinking “did you just steal my ice cream girl?”
Sundae toppings are hot fudge, caramel, peanuts, bananas, and a cherry. Perfection.
I love the picture of Brooke and Curly. That’s exactly the face that I would have if someone wanted to share ice cream with me.
I only have my IPhone to take pictures. I had a camera, but it was stolen when my house was broken into. Boo.
After Dark at Lincoln Park–the best goth color!
Wait the kids bowling lane is only for kids?
Courtney @ Our Latte Love
I love Brooke’s boots! I think baby shoes are so cute – definitely one of may favorite baby accessories.
I currently use my iphone to take all my pictures. I have a point and shoot (but have no idea where it is!). Some days I think I’d love a DSLR but I wonder if I would actually carry it around with me… Granted I must take at least 30 pictures a day and a good number of them are at home so maybe it’s time to invest…
Runner Girl Eats
I have a point and shoot that I only use on vacation. day to day is always my iPhone. My nails are currently painted Essie Smokin’ Hot with an accent nail in OPI Glamour Girl. I just can’t quit the accent nail trend.
I use a Canon rebel t3i! Love love love it!!! Daily I use my phone and take 6-8 pics a day. My nails are rarely polished, but this week they are a lighter purple. Sundaes: sprinkles, cookie dough, crushed Oreos!! Last pic I took: the frying pan with bacon. I never cook & tonight I made bacon for some green beans.
Lou @ Running Through China
My camera is a somewhat old (pink!) canon job, that unfortunately someone who may remain nameless (ok, me) dropped and it now has a permanent black blurry dot in the middle when you zoom, oops…
Take a few photos a week. Last one was during a fun-filled game of ping-pong.
Don’t paint my nails often – they are shockers. (But at least marginally better than my toenails.)
Hmm, love some sort of caramel/nut combination on a sundae! Or, alternatively, crushed up biscuits, dark chocolate and yoghurt (not frozen yoghurt). Yum! :)
Shay @ Whine Less, Breathe More
Right now I am only using my iPhone to take pictures. A new camera is my on my wish list!
The last picture I took was of my girls playing in our leaves.
My nails are still painted gold from Halloween. I should probably do something about them sometime soon…
Favorite sundae toppings are hot fudge, crumbled Oreo and whipped cream. So good!
I use my phone a lot bc it’s always with me.
Ashley @ Saving Money in your Twenties
I my pictures with my iphone. I think it’s actually a better camera than my old digital camera- ha! And I just painted my nails for the first time in WEEKS last night. dark pink with silver on the ring fingers!
Sam @ Better With Sprinkles
Blogging means that I take waaaaaaaaaay too many pictures ;-) Favourite sundae toppings are hot fudge sauce and brownie pieces!
Happy 5th bday Curly!! Five is fierce!!
I think I take an average of 5 pics a day! All on y phone even though I adore my camera! I just never have it with me!
I never pain my nails bc I chip them SO fast
And I would have to say marshmallow . :)
awww happy 5th birthday, curly! :) bowling is so much fun!
26 degrees? i think i would have turned into an ice cube! (i’m a southern california wimp, haha)
my nails aren’t painted right now, but i got a pedicure on saturday with my mom, so my toes are currently bright pink! :)
I mostly use my Iphone but I also have a Canon DSLR. My nails aren’t painted, but my toes are always painted and they are pink. I have to say Marshmellow is my favorite topping. Happy Birthday Curly!
Kid birthdays are the best!!! I use my iPhone for all my pics and take a ton of pics! I would love to have a really nice camera. I just painted my nails OPI Linkin Park After a Dark. It’s my fall fav.
My husband and I can’t stop watching extreme cheapskates too! I would sacrifice a whole lot of stuff before I ate from the trash;)
Last picture I took was of an Odwalla Pumpkin Protein drink. I usually take about three or four pictures each day.
Gina, book dragon
I’ve been using my iTouch for pics
my toes are painted a sapphire blue as I just started wear closed toe shoes
chocolate, peanuts, and a cherry
Nikki @ will run for pizza
Both Curly and Brooke have the same expression…they are SOOO cute.
Terrible with “real” cameras; the last thing I took a picture of (with my phone) were some friends I hadn’t seen in a really long time…and also a really cool sushi display.
Toes are bright red, and in serious need of some attention. I frequently paint my fingernails clear to pretend I had a real manicure :)
Globby peanut butter is, by far, my favorite ice cream topping/ingredient.
Birthdays really are the best! I used my Galaxy S4 – it’s an 11 mega pixel camera so the pictures come out great. Last picture I took was of my brand spankin new Brooks Glycerin 11’s! I probably take between 1 – 5 and a day. Sunday topping = chocolate covered pretzels.
Ah! Stop talking about ice cream!!! Jk ;). I’m giving up dairy for a month bc I think it’s the route of my stomach issues and I’m literally salivating over your ice cream pictures lol. Favourite sundae topping will always be strawberries with the sauce…mmm…I could eat that stuff with a spoon.
My nails are black…left over from Halloween… :)
Love Brooke’s hair in her little pig tails . I’m so impressed that she allows you to do her hair. My 1 year old pulls Barrettes and clips out of her hair as soon as I put them in and tries to eat them…
I painted my nails Sunday night (as I do every Sunday night), and in the process of writing my research paper this week, have completely destroyed them… Whoops.
Also thought you’d enjoy this for a giggle if you haven’t already seen it! http://whatshouldrunnerscallme.tumblr.com/
Embarrassed to say about 99% of my pictures are taken with my iPhone. My nails are painted (and super chipped) right now a color my sister had that’s a sparkly brownish-grey, it doesn’t sound cute but it is, I promise :)
Kara @ Kara in the Kitchen
My nails are not painted…but they need to be!
Shelley @ She Runs for Cupcakes
I have a Sony camera that I love — it takes the best pictures and I love the sports/action mode on it.
That brownie sundae looks amazing, I’m so going to have to have ice cream with bananas and M&Ms this week. :) Yummm!!
Brooke looks so mature in that photo with Curly and her ice-cream. Now I *have* to find out what Cheapskates is – people who skate with cheap skates? Or people who have found the secret to living essentially free?
I think that’s great that Brooke is growing up so close to her cousins! I grew up right down the street from my cousins and we were close in age and remain close friends to this day. In fact, one cousin is my Maid of Honor and her sister is my bridesmaid :)
WOW no doubt that the Nikon is awesome- I’m currently working on becoming a professional iphone photographer…just kidding. For now, the iphone gets the job done (until I can afford something else :P)
Christina (Sisters Running the Kitchen)
the last pic i took was of my new puppy, Riley!! I would say i take 2 pictures per day with my iphone?
nothing on my nails right now. i like very natural colors, though!
Favorite sundae toppings = REESES, no question.
My favorite sundae topping is ice cream. Ice cream is just the excuse to eat copious amounts of caramel. 80% caramel and 20% ice cream is the perfect ratio.
I only use my crappy cell camera, it is too easy to just use that.
J @ unnaturelle runner
I use a Canon Rebel and my iPhone for pictures. Having a toddler and a kitten, I take a ridiculous amount of photos on my phone. I don’t break out the DSLR often enough these days.
My nails are drying (and probably getting messed up!) as I type this. Just painted them with Essie’s midnight cami :)
Kari @ Running Ricig
I have a canon DSLR, but usually just use my phone for pictures. I never actually think to bring the real camera.
My nails are unpainted. I feel like they chip too much to do it unless it’s for a special occasion. My toenails are usually done nicely, though.
I don’t even own a camera. I just use my phone for photo’s.
I just got my nails done yesterday on my lunch and they are a greyish purply colour. I am really happy with the colour.
Nicole @Pink Elephant on Parade
I’m trying really hard not to beat myself up over the fact that Brooke has better and more fashionable shoes than I do.
Cori @ shes going the distance
Nails are a blush pink, but i really want a dark purple or black right now
Fave sundae toppings are whipped cream and chocolate (keep your nuts out of my dessert!!) haha
Annie @ lovelaughrun.com
My nails are almost always painted a bold color. But right now, I’m rocking the nude. And I put anything and everything peanut on my sundaes!
Wow! Kid’s bowling lanes? That’s so awesome!
Brownie sundaes and painting your nails!? It doesn’t get much better than that!
I would so be on Brooke’s blog every day!
I’m trying to start taking more pictures since I just started my blog. Your camera takes the best pictures!
My nails are a new color I had a coupon for! Lavender Lustre holographic! I love it! I change mine every week. No polish feels so blah.
I used to take a lot of pictures. not so much right now. I go in phases.
my nails are naked and in desperate need of color. (and a pedicure) I had to take the color off last Saturday so my chipped hot pink nails wouldn’t show thru my peep toe heels at my anniversary celebration (11 years).
Looks like a fun day! I use just a little Canon camera. It gets the job done. :) The last picture I took was actually a baby squirrel sleeping by my back door. He was adorable. I take very few pictures actually, so maybe one or two a week. My favorite ice cream toppings are anything and everything sweet! Sprinkles, caramel, chocolate syrup, chocolate chips, bananas, strawberries, brownies, anything I can get my hands on! I love ice cream!
yum! brownie sundaes!!!
I use either my Nikon D5000 or my Nikon Coolpix, depending on what I am taking pictures of.
The last picture I took was of a frame with pictures of our dog and a poem for how much we miss him.
I take way too many pictures a day. Depending on what I am doing that day, of course.
My nails have french manicure on them right now.
That sounds like such a fun night with a friend! That show sort of scares me (especially when they improvise toilet paper – I draw the line somewhere haha)
I have an old point and shoot somewhere, but I just use my iPhone. I take way too many pictures, nature, our pets, food that we cook. Negative on the painted nails. I guess my toenails are still a bit of sparkly blue for the summer.
Favorite ice cream topping: peanut butter cup, oreo and hot fudge. horrible and so delicious!!

Lauren @Will Run for Boston
I just painted my nails orange with one sparkly and one chevron accent nail! They took forever but now I can’t stop staring at them! :)
The last picture I took was of my green smoothie I made after my workout today :)
I am really bad about only taking phone pics. I am hoping to get a super duper nice camera soon. I have a Nikon something that is pretty awesome, but not the best and I am holding out for THE. BEST. My last picture was of my dog, who is currently sleeping on my shoulders like a kitten.
