Hey everyone… Surprise Guest Post. Janae was feeling pretty terrible yesterday and I knew that a post was not going to happen. She was out of commission pretty early, so I volunteered to write a post for you all!! Sooo… I have had this idea of writing a “Behind the Scenes of the HRG” post for some time. Trust me I have SO MUCH content for this and if you like it, we might have to do this every once in a while.
First things first… pictures, pictures and more pictures…. and wait… more pictures. I think we take more pictures in one week than my parents took of me. Okay, I might be exaggerating a bit. Janae just got a new phone and she already has 14k pictures… with the thousands of pictures come some very funny moments
My Selfie game is much stronger now that I am married to a blogger, but I still can’t seem to get our whole family in one shot. Can someone let me know what I am doing wrong? I’m always cutting out my head or the kids. I guess I just need more practice.
Now, here is evidence of part of the reason why we have so many pictures. Kids = Volatility This picture describes it all. Most of the time the kids love to take pictures and to be honest they feel left out if they aren’t in a picture with us. I love that we have pictures together as a family, but man it can be quite the battle to get everyone smiling. What is harder than this…..?
VLOGS with kids = the utmost amount of difficulty. I was on my computer just looking through videos and pictures and came upon this video and oh the memories of making this video flooded my mind. I literally laughed out loud and I mean really loud when I watched the outtakes. Each time I watch this clip I just laugh and smile. I love our kids.
I’m just going to put this right here. You’re welcome. Sometimes Janae doesn’t know what to do for the camera and the spunk comes out… This is a just a tiny taste of what there is… I’ll save the better ones for a later post :)
So I know Janae boasts about her ability in air hockey. She has some serious skills. When she first told me about this, I didn’t believe her. She smoked me and to be honest, I have yet to beat her in a best of 5 series. Well… last week we went on a date (Yeah that’s right we went to a kid’s arcade without the kids) and Io and behold… The HRG cannot beat me in this, BOOM (mic drop)
These two kids like to team up against the parents, Right before she said 3 to take a picture they both spun around and I think they are both dabbed??? These kids have skills!
Gotta get that running picture…. #shenailedit haha
Personally, I don’t know why this one didn’t make the cut. Knox’s modeling game on point… He didn’t learn that from me.
Just when we think we got it all figured out, Beretta comes and bombs the picture. 2 four year olds and a 5 year old dog in a picture…. forget about it. I’d rather take up learning Mandarin and rocket science.
Last of the behind of the scenes, is this gem. Now this totally sums up trying to get a family picture together. My selfie game isn’t strong enough for this…yet, I’m sure I’ll have much more practice to come. Whenever we want a family picture we have to look for a victim who is within 10 feet of us to take our picture. Getting a picture with all four of us smiling can be quite the rarity. I think we have a 5% chance of getting a shot that will make the cut. Janae is so nice and always says, “Oh its perfect!!!” I just wait about 10 seconds later when the good Samaritan is out of hearing range and I will ask her, “Do you like it for real?” Oftentimes we find ourselves looking for our next victim.
All joking aside, I love being on this adventure with Janae. I have run into many of you at the grocery store, Target and at races and I love to get to know you all. Don’t be afraid to say hi! I know my last few guest posts were longer, so I’ll keep this one shorter. I hope you are all are having a fantastic Wednesday!!
Hello from Janae for a minute:)
I am SIGNED UP for my next half marathon—> the TIMP HALF! They are partnering with the Huntsman Cancer Institute and a portion of every runner’s fee (and all donations) will be given to fund cancer research!
You can use the code TEAMHRG for 20% off!!! Come join me if you live here (or if you want to fly to Utah… I’ll take you to Cafe Rio while you are here). We could all meet at the start line to get a picture together:)
This course is fast (it is my PR course), stunning, super well-organized and they make the whole thing such a fun event! I can’t wait! Andrew is going to run it with me too and I’m excited to be a part of this race (at my pregnancy half-way mark:)! This picture below was from right before the race started when I ran my PR… I loved how confident I felt that morning! Confidence is one of the keys for me to have a good race, self-doubt SLOWS ME DOWN.
What behind the scenes would you like to know?
Does your family like to get their picture taken? Any funny stories? Any horror stories?
What is the highlight of your week so far?
