Silentish Saturday—> off to VEGAS!

The gift that keeps giving for the next 500ish miles.  Wore these new Launch 3s (they come out on 1/1) for my run and my feet were the happiest they have been in a very long time.

My kind of Christmas stocking.

PERFECT tips for winter running!

I wonder how much longer she will actually enjoy doing chores?

IMG 3672

She is more patient about letting her nails dry than I am.

We do a lot of galloping these days from place to place.

A drink break with the Meg before she goes home from Christmas!

The lunch that never gets old to me. Never.

She somehow forgot that she already has a scooter and a bike…

Target.

Tradition #49583—>  she picks out an ornament for the tree (hopefully she doesn’t give this one away).

The mountains are showing off.

I put Brookie to bed at my mom’s house and then the dude and I left for Vegas!!! There is a huge bowl game going on (I went to BYU and they are playing) and he has some other awesome things planned for his ‘experience’ present.  I’ll get back early Sunday so it is a short trip but filled with a lot of awesomeness and Brooke gets to play with her cousins so she is in heaven!

I’m real ready for some 50 degree weather, talking for hours while on the road, delicious food and a roller coaster.  

I hope you are having the best weekend already and we will chat tomorrow morning again!

Vegas sounds fun! And a nice break from the cold weather! My favorite part about traveling is trying new foods and restaurants I can’t go to when I’m at home!

I’m stuck at work all weekend. Have fun for me too! ;)

Does anyone know what happened to Jen Chooses Joy?….miss her!

Reply

I’ve been wondering the same thing!!!

Reply

She wrote on Instagram that she was taking a break for awhile and didn’t know when she’d be back. But she wrote it only recently when people kept asking/concerned for her….I thought it was strange that she just didn’t say upfront that she was taking a break – would have stopped a lot of questions, assumptions and concerns!

Reply

I think she is embarrassed by all the comments made on Gomi and all the assumptions about her. Shes ghosting in a cowardly fashion.

Reply

I beg to differ with you. I think Jennifer is an amazingly wonderful person and she is probably taking the high (and best) road for she and her family. She, nor anyone else, need negativity in their lives. She wrote that blog to help others and believe me, she did!

Reply

If she cared so much about her followers, then why did she drop off the face of the earth without any explanation? Think what you may but she did more damage by doing that than just being honest with her followers. Selfish. Are you her friend Correy. ( Torri)?

I’ve got to get my hands on a pair of the Launch 2s!! That lunch looks so good is that BBQ sauce?

Have fun in Vegas I can’t wait to hear about your “experience.”

Reply

Brooke is pretty good to let her nails dry. The second we get the paint on my girls fingers the touch everything. We only paint toes now.

Reply

Awesome gifts, especially from the dude.

We’re having a cold day today, it’s been unusually warm so it feels even colder than it is.

Reply

So much Brooke cuteness in this post! Have a great weekend.

Reply

Destination dates are the best! Especially when said destination has an overabundance of yummy food! Have fun and enjoy the weather!

Reply

Have fun in Vegas! Sounds like an amazing weekend trip :) Can’t wait to see the highlights!

The nice thing about Vegas is you don’t have to eat at same place twice cause the food is all so good! We just went last month for rock n roll half. Was so fun eating and Cesar’s is decorated all festive. Have fun!

Reply

Have fun on your trip!

Reply

Have a safe trip, Janae!

Sweet potato, chicken……..and what is the sauce?

I got a pair of Ravenna 6 for my birthday! I have about 420 left on my Mizunos. I might just switch them out tomorrow and keep the mizuno as backup.

I only wear Brooks too – they are the best shoes – and I love their winter running tips. Spot on. Also, I’m with you on the sweet potatoes. So easy and so delicious! Hope you have a great time in Vegas.
