We got our pictures back from NIKI and here are some of our favorites (I have more coming up in Brooke’s 2 year old update on HRG Baby next week)!
Yes, I did attempt to make us have the exact same hairstyle.
Dinner was a good one. I made a turkey burger (ground turkey and mexican seasoning) with avocado, cheese and a side of corn and peaches.
My dad taught me this trick- Wrap your corn in a wet paper towel and cook it for about 5 minutes (I turn it half-way through) in the microwave and boom… You have delicious corn without having to boil water etc.
This cold has made me really enjoy couch time and I think Brooke is okay with that too.
I met a new friend (in real life and not through the internet for the first time in years:) and we went and got the good stuff.
‘Don’t cry over spilt milk’—> I do cry over spilt froyo. It hurt my heart a little.
And even though I had no desire to stretch/foam roll/use this evil golf ball to roll out my foot, I did because in order to keep running injury free I have to keep up with all of the little things.
I hope you have a great run today or this weekend whether it is indoor on a treadmill or outside on the roads or trails.
I think I am rubbing off on her:
What are you most excited about this weekend?
-My sis is sleeping over cause her family will be gone. We are going to party until at least midnight.
If you could have any breakfast delivered to you right this second.. What would it be?
-A huge omelet with tons of avocado, an apple fritter and a glass of fresh orange juice.
What workout do you have planned for this weekend?
Ah you can delete my first comment. For some reason my phone has had a hard time commenting on your blog lately. Anyways, you and Brooke are so gorgeous. Those photos really came out well, I could not be happier for you both. I love your outfits! I really like ordering omelets at any restaurant because I struggle so much to cook them myself.
Lily @ Lily Runs the World
Those pictures are so great! I’m really excited to run a half marathon in Dingle, Ireland tomorrow morning. It will be my first race abroad and my first race since March… it’s been a long time coming.
The pics turned out SO BEAUTIFUL! I love them! Brooke is so lucky to have an amazing mom like you! <3 Happy weekend!
Ashley @ KickAshMom.com
That is absolutely the most perfect outfit for Brooke. It goes good with your hair.The pictures look awesome so far! You’re beautiful!
Michele @ paleorunningmomma
Just a 12 miler saturday for me. The photos are gorgeous and that avocado salad looks good too!
Samantha @ 24to30
That picture of her kissing you is seriously the best. Adorable.
Amanda @ Positively Amanda
Such adorable pictures!
Your photos are beautiful :)
Huevos Rancheros. Hands down. Best breakfast ever.
Your photos are gorgeous. Brooke’s eyes… Wow!
You both look gorgeous. Brooke favors you so much, especially with her hair down. Hope yoi feel better soon!
I would want cereal delivered to me. I can’t get cereal in China and I really want special K …. and maybe some blueberry pancakes.
Natalie @ Never Serious Blog
Love the pictures!!!! She is getting SO BIG!
You made me want an omelet BAD. I’m probably going to have to remedy that this weekend! Happy FRiday!
I think I would pick pancakes of some sort with breakfast sausage and lots of maple syrup. I will probably do an at home workout of sorts this weekend. I have exciting plans to visit my parents and have a shopping day with my mom!
I am most excited about heading to the mountains for my next race! A half marathon on Sunday :)
I LOVE the family photos!!
YOU and Brooke are so gorgeous I absolutely LOVE these pictures…LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!!!
I can’t wait for my 20 miler this weekend I am EXTEMELY excited for it!!! :) :) :)
The picture where she’s kissing you! I’m obsessed! (and a little biased because of her name ;)
Beth @ Running with the Sunrise
Your photos turned out wonderfully! You look so beautiful in all of them and I love how your photographer really captured Brooke’s huge, beautiful eyes. I am so jealous you’re getting to chill out on the couch–I’ve been running around like crazy all week and need to chill out a bit. I’m running a half marathon on Sunday which I’m really excited about and tacking on 7 miles before the race (hopefully) for a total of 20!
Looks like Brooke is watching Mickey’s A Christmas Carol and the shirt movies after. That is my daughter’s favorite that she usually begs to watch every single day!
I love sibling sleepovers! This weekend I’m hitting the farmers market so I can get a bunch of things canned. Canning is so much work but worth it when I can open a bottle of peaches in January!
Sooooo beautiful!!! The pictures came out amazing :D
Alyssa @ See This Girl Run
Gorgeous pictures! You two are the cutest :)
I would have the veggie omelet from Herm’s Inn in Logan delivered. It’s delicious and comes with the yummiest breakfast potatoes.
Sally @ sweat out the small stuff
Pancakes bacon and scrambled eggs!
I have a 4 mile race on Saturday.
I’m most looking forward to running in Central Park. Somehow I haven’t been there for a race since June. That’s a long time for me.
Awesome family pics. Have a lovely weekend!
Beautiful pictures!!!!!! Enjoy your weekend :)!
you are absolutely gorgeous Janae!! Brooke is a stunner too!! :) beautiful mama & daughter! :) love the pics!!! #photogenic
miss you & belated congrats on your new place & congrats to your sis re: bun in the oven! :) love ya my friend!!!! xoxo
Sarah @ KS Runner
I’m just excited to have no plans. Just hanging out at home and relaxing. I am on a down week with training, so even my long run isn’t very long!
Today is the first day it’s actually cool here in a long time, so a big bowl of oatmeal with fresh berries sounds really good. I wouldn’t complain about a donut either!
Have a great weekend! Hope you get to feeling better!
Christa @ Living Unbalanced
Her eyes are SO pretty!!! And that sponge bob golf ball does look a little evil…
Kari @ Kari On
All the pictures are adorable, I can’t even decide which one I like best! If I could have someone deliver breakfast to me right now it would definitely be biscuits and gravy…with a side of bacon. Sadly, I think I’ll have to settle for cereal this morning.
Have a great weekend!
Brooke looks so different with her hair down! She’s such a cutie pie!
I was PLANNING to go running tonight, but my services are being “requested” elsewhere, to finish the move from our old house to our new. Not too pleased, but it’s got to get done.
I hate moving.
Terry @ PolkaDot Butterfly
Great pics! You guys are gorgeous!
Cream cheese & black olive omelet.
Working the plan for the half in two weeks, long runs over! Heading to the farmers market instead. We have a sausage guys there who makes yummy sausages. It’s that time of year.
Will try the golf ball.
Have a great weekend! Enjoy!
Absolutely gorgeous pictures Janae! This weekend I have a few new gym classes to attend :)
Fiona @ Get Fit Fiona
The photos of you and Brooke are great! You must be so happy with them.
I’d like french toast with a ton of fruit on the side for breakfast.
Katie @ running4cupcakes
The pics look awesome. I especially love Brooke’s jean shirt – adorable! And extra couch time is never a bad thing!! :) Happy Friday.
Cannot even handle the cuteness that is Brooke.
My dream workout would be running for forever and then coming home to family and a pile of warm doughnuts. The end.
Janae!! I LOVE your family pictures! So cute! Do you still use the instyler? I noticed you wrote that you used it for Brooke’s hair. I have one and for the life of me cannot get it to work well. Can you show a tutorial?! Hungry Runner Girl + Hairstylist! It definitely has a good rhyme to it! :)
Oh! And when I make a turkey burger, I add an egg or two to the ground turkey PLUS some breadcrumbs. I promise you it’s magical!
Best breakfast? hmmmm . Veggie lasagna. Not a breakfast food person! :)
Double run Sunday, 8+7…looking forward to it!
Amy @ Life to the Full
Absolutely beautiful pictures of you two!!!
Girls’ night tonight (my 18 month old is the only boy allowed…haha) and then a long run tomorrow. Hoping for 12 miles!
does your treadmill not fit in your new apartment? I noticed you’ve been running at the gym. that treadmill was awesome!!!
The Hungry Runner Girl
It doesn’t. It is in storage until I move to a bigger place!
I just started doing my corn in the microwave, but a little different than you. First I chop the bottom end off but leave the husk on and just lay it on a damp paper towel. Then I microwave, 3-5 minutes depending on how many ears. Then I let them continue to steam themselves in the husk for about 2-3 minutes. Finally you just peel the husk and silk right off soooooooo easily! My husband will even squeeze his out the bottom where I’ve cut. Give it a try, it’s the best and saves you from shucking corn and getting silk everywhere!
I’m pretty excited about my workout this weekend. I’m doing the Rivalry Relay as an ultra team with my husband and good girlfriend. We will run from University of Utah to Provo (61 miles). Our team name is Band of Runners. It should be a great time. We have the legs divided up so we each run two legs back to back so we will all run a total of three times. We are all running St. George too, so in a way this is one of our long training runs, just broken up!
Have a blast with your sister. And, I just finished a bowl of frosted mini wheats and I wish another bowl would magically appear haha.
Marissa @ Run Riss Run
We are taking the kids to a water park for the first time this weekend! Woohoo!
The hubs and I are planning on running 14 miles tomorrow, I’m kind of waiting to see how the shins are feeling.
Brooke is Gorgeous!!! love the pics!
Love the pictures! Y’all are both gorgeous!!
An egg scramble from my favorite restaurant. No weekend runs for me and I’m devastated. I’ve been nursing tight calf pain and it’s just not getting loose until about 30 min into my runs so I’m resting it for a while. Good thing I used to be a swimmer :). Although there’s nothing quite like runner endorphins. Let’s hope my children and family survive a non-running me ;). Enjoy your weekend with that sweet girl and your sister. How fun! Beautiful pics!
Wonderful photos! Workouts for the weekend = 20 mile bike ride + yoga on Saturday and 4-5 miles on Sunday. I used to take Sunday to rest but I have decided to make my rest day on Monday because it’s so quiet out on the weekends and I like to take advantage of “reducing my chances of being hit by a driver not paying attention”.
Looking forward to Saturday afternoon/evening date with my husband (watching Oregon Ducks football while indulging in wings + beer). Simple things in life make me happy.
Those pictures melt my heart.
Any breakfast delivered? Beignets and café au lait from Morning Call in New Orleans. I miss home. :(
Heather @ Run Like a G!
Fiauna @ Read.Run.Radiate
Those pictures are gorgeous! I do agree that in order to keep running, especially high miles, you have to commit not just to the running workouts but also to all the little things like stretching, sleep, and nutrition.
If I could have any breakfast right now it would be a giant cinnamon roll from Granny Annie’s in Kaysville or Angie’s in Logan. Mmmm.
Your family pictures are great. Where did you get Brooke’s dress?
The Hungry Runner Girl
Thank you!!! It is from baby gap!!!!
Oh my gosh-I just about died from over swooning at those adorable family pics!!! You ladies are the cutest!!! I’m officially moved to San Diego now, so my workout this weekend will be loading and unloading then loading and unloading again for the Grape Day 5k on Saturday, then running the Aloha run 5I on Sunday. Life in San Diego working for a running production company is the best! Oh, and thanks for the stretching faves yesterday-good reminder to do them-I’m a stretching slacker.
Katie @ Peace Love & Oats
omg that last outfit brooke is wearing – I want that whole outfit in my size. We seriously have the same style. Haha
I’m most excited about brady’s first soccer game this weekend… he’s three and a half and I think little ones playing soccer is super cute…
I would have stuffed french toast with whipped cream and strawberries… I’m uber hungry today;(
I would like to run at least 10 miles this weekend… Saturday is going to be a crazy busy day, so IF it happens it will be sunday… but i’m kind of looking forward to me, my ipod, my garmin on the open country road… I need some ME time
Did that golf ball come from Target? Because I just bought a whole pack of them! They are evil — as are baseballs! But so effective!
Great photos, btw. You’re both adorable!
The Hungry Runner Girl
Yes!!!!! Target hahahah!
This has been a long second week of school… granted my students are still great, but I am looking forward to shopping for a dress to wear to my brother’s wedding.
I already had two omelettes this morning because I was extra hungry, but I would really like a cinnamon roll (if I didn’t have to watch what I am eating before the wedding).
During the week, I always go on the treadmill… so I am looking forward to a workout on the prairie near my apartment.
The Silent Assassin
This weekend is the Ventura Marathon. Hey! that paper towel trick works for everything… especially for left overs that have been in the fridge. It creates steam, and makes things moist. In hawaii, whenever we ate rice out of the fridge, we would take a wet paper towel and cover it before nuking it. It would steam and make the rice “sticky” again! Works for mostly everything!
Your pictures are gorgeous!!! I had to bump up my long run to today because of weekend travel and I would LOVE a blueberry waffle!!!
love love love the pictures – you both are so beautiful. Her cheeks!!
We have a brewery crawl tomorrow with some friends (yay for being DD….) and then a cookout, followed by another small party on Sunday…it’s going to be a busy one!
Oh and I’d love a donut OR some french toast with strawberries…and whipped cream.
Kirtley @The Gist of Fit
Hey! Saw your article in Women’s Running Mag the other day, SOO cool. You’re pretty amazing:)
Those pics are GORGEOUS!!! Thanks for sharing! Have an awesome weekend!
Omg, those pictures are unbelievably adorable – I absolutely love that you styled your hair the same haha! So darn cute!
I just had a plate of whole wheat protein pancakes, but I could seriously go for a huge stack of Belgium waffles, topped with strawberries and powdered sugar. Nom noms…
I’m hoping to get some strength training in this weekend, maybe even a track workout outside, if the weather is nice. Hope you have a great weekend!
An even easier corn trick? Put the whole ear of corn in the microwave (husk and all) and microwave for 4 minutes. Cut off the bottom and squeeze corn out of husk….VIOLA! perfect corn and none of the annoying little silky hairs!!
The Hungry Runner Girl
Brilliant! Thank you!!!!
kristin @ W [H] A T C H
such sweet pictures!
I am excited to spend some time with my son this weekend! I’m not sure what we will all do yet.
I have a long run planned for tomorrow am…
Your pictures are just gorgeous. I love the last one!!
Ashley @ My Food N Fitness Diaries
Love, love, LOVE the photos! Gorgeous girls. :)
Any breakfast delivered to me right now would have to be eggs benedict with avocado, mixed berries, and a small stack of French toast. Wowwww.
Happy Friday! xo
Leslie @ Life Begins @ 30?
Great pictures! I would have a delicious omlet and bacon delivered to me…with a spicy bloody mary. :)
Megan @ Skinny Fitalicious
I’m excited to meet up with an old friend this weekend! I can’t believe how much Brooke looks just like you. The pics are gorgeous!
Your family photos are amazing!!! It’s gonna be fun this weekend: Saturday at track races (hey I’m marathoner!) running 5 000 and 1 500 m! 18 mile long run on Sunday :) Have a great weekend, I am off to golf balling my feet – thank you for the idea :)
Very nice post. I just stumbled upon your blog and
wished to say that I’ve truly enjoyed browsing your blog posts.
After all I’ll be subscribing to your feed and I hope you write again soon!
Laura @ This Runner's Recipes
Beautiful pictures – Brooke is such a cutie!
Tomorrow I have a ten miler planned, and then going to our town’s annual Popcorn Festival with my fiance! For breakfast I want a big cinnamon raisin bagel smeared in honey cream cheese or peanut butter – that might just have to happen after the long run tomorrow.
Have a great weekend :)
Oh man, those are so beautiful. That child and those blue eyes. SO cute.
And you totally made the hair work. It looks great!
Looking forward to my sons soccer games tomorrow and a 10 miler run.
Your photos are absolutely gorgeous!
Have a blast with your sis! Do we get to know what she’s having? Either way such a blessing!!!
Leigha @ The Yooper Girl
So beautiful! I can’t believe how long Brooke’s hair is getting! My easy corn trick is just microwaving it for 1:30 with the husk on. My microwave must be really fast! If I could have any breakfast… pancakes with a side of scrambled eggs and a chocolate milkshake!
Kris @ Canadian Girl Runs.
I am most excited to sleep in tomorrow! Back to school routine means a lot of 5:00 am wake-up calls to get to the gym before school. I would have blueberry waffles delivered to me right this second! I am going to try and get a moderately long 12-ish mile run in tomorrow before a cross training day on Sunday. My body needs a break but I want to get in a good one tomorrow and then take ‘er easy on Sunday ;)
Those photos are GORGEOUS!!!! I am most excited for two things:
1. This Sunday I am doing my first “race” since I had my daughter. Given life’s circumstances I will actually just be run/walking but it’s going to be good just to feel that vibe of an organized running event for the first time in a long time.
2. FOOTBALL! During football season I hold a weekly “open door” policy at my home and friends/family come over throughout the day and we watch football/visit/eat good food/hang out with loved ones. It’s one of my most favorite things about the fall.
Kelsey, I would totally come to your house to watch football!! What a super great idea.
Thanks Susan, It’s tonnes of fun!
I am most looking forward to the consultation for my photo shoot. I am giving myself a “fit at forty” present of a fun photo shoot!
If I could have any breakfast delived to me right now it would be a bacon, egg, and cheese breakfast sandwich on an english muffin AND a pumpkin donut.
This weekend’s workouts include 2 lifting sessions and a couple training run/walks with my Girlie. I love that her school has a 5k fundraiser instead of catalog sales! Actually, those runs are a very close second to the thing I am looking forward to!
These pictures are GORGEOUS!!! Love your hair!
Linda @ Fit Fed and Happy
I’m going to an acting session this weekend and today I completed the beep test at 7.5! Super proud. Have you ever done the beep test?
Katie Did What
Ashley @ Saving Money in your Twenties
Those pictures are beautiful!!! And I would totally cry over spilled froyo… so sad! haha
Those pictures are so good – Brooke looks so grown up with her hair down and curled!!!
Lisa @ Running Out Of Wine
I love those pictures!
I am most excited to see one of my best friends get married this weekend!
I loved the pictures. They look beautiful.
Have a great weekend!
Livi @ Eat, Pray, Work It Out
Brooke looks so much like you! Great pictures!
This amazing jalapeño cheddar savory scone from a breakfast joint in Ashland, OR. That and a mediterranean scramble. And lots of coffee.
Kristin @ A Mom on the Run
Oh my goodness, that picture of Brooke kissing your cheeks is adorable!! She’s beyond adorable and you look so happy!
Michelle @ A Healthy Mrs
Erin @ Her Heartland Soul
What beautiful family photos!! And that salad looks delicious!
Most beautiful mother/daughter pair I EVER did see!! Amazing pictures!
Ericka @ The Sweet Life
You little cuties ;)
Sam @ The Running Graduate
Those pictures are beautiful!!
I’m running a half marathon in Lake Placid, NY tomorrow! I am so excited!
Good luck Sam. Glanced at your blog post and see that it’s gonna be quite the milestone event for you. Hope it’s a great run!
Waffles or biscuits & sausage gravy are my favorite breakfast indulgences. And apple fritters. You and Brooke are so cute. You should totally do a tutorial on how you fix your hair. I always love it!!
Becky @ TheBexFactor.
Beautiful photos. My son and I have a session booked on Tuesday and I have no idea how to dress us!
Cheri @ Overactive Blogger
The pics turned out absolutely beautifully. Brooke is growing up to be a gorgeous little girl :)
Becky @ Ok, so here's the plan
I am excited to do some house hunting this weekend – it’s fun to check out different houses!
Any breakfast right now? Waffles, covered in peaches and whipped cream
My workout for the weekend is a split up 13 mile long run – half with a group and half on my treadmill.
Gorgeous pictures! Brooke is getting way too big.
20 miler on the books for tomorrow morning, followed by a date night. Since I wear my hair in a ponytail about 99.9% of the time I’m going to a dry bar for the first time. I’m not sure who’s more excited for me to get dressed up, me or the hubs.
Could you and Brooke be any more beautiful?? I think not. Love your family pics!
meredith @ The Cookie ChRUNicles
I am in Florida this weekend down from NY for my best friend’s son’s Bar Mitzvah! So much fun to get away for a bit and party….
[email protected] My Miles!
I love your photos and cannot wait to see the final ones for the HRG baby post.
I would love a bowl of LIFE cereal delivered. Specifically, with milk already poured in so it’s really soggy. Love that cereal soggy!!!
The photos look fabulous!
