Silentish Saturday + I Chopped My Hair Off

I actually spent a good amount of time stretching yesterday!

But first I ran 6 miles @ 9:07 pace… I love running on grass.

And after!  I love it, it feels so healthy and light now and I’m very thankful you guys talked me into doing it.  It hasn’t been this short since I was Brooke’s age!

Did some reading.

And then we did some yard work.

And some planting.

The neighbors came over for a bit and then Skye and Brooke went to their house so it was just me, Andrew and Beck.

Off for a long run with a workout in the middle!

AHHH! I LOVE your hair. I was nervous about you getting it cut because I thought it looked so good long. But this looks amazing and will be so much easier to take care of. Can’t wait for more pictures. Have a great day Janae!

Thank you thank you thank you! I was nervous too! I hope your weekend is a wonderful one.

Love the cut! I’m doing something similar next weekend and i can’t wait!
Three things for me today…
1. I viewed a house and loved it so I’m going to make an offer to buy
2. I had my first run back from my latest health debacle. Hopefully this is the start of my last comeback for a while
3. Sold my kettlebells as they don’t help my neck injury and someone should be using them!

Thank you so much Lisa! YOU HAVE TO KEEP ME UPDATED on the house you put an offer on, that is so exciting. And I am so happy to hear that you had your first run back, wahoo. Stay healthy friend and I am glad you were able to sell the kettlebells!

Janae!!!! Darling, darling, darling new hair!!!

3 things.

1. Puffy Cream Donuts – the best!
2. Pedicure – my toes and hand colors do not match and it is upsetting my eyes
3. Walk the dog to the point of exhaustion because he has way too much energy.

4. I’m taking a bonus number; Read my head off.

The perfect Saturday!

Thank you so much Belle! Ummm I must have those donuts, those sound so good. Have the best time getting a pedicure and being out with your pup. Let me know what you think of your book when you are all done!

Janae the cut and color looks gorgeous on you!
What a wonderful springtime refresher.
Glad you went for it, you must feel lighter, I’m not a runner but this might make you run even faster! haha

Reply

Thank you so much Connie! I’m hoping the same thing haha. Have a beautiful weekend!

Gahhhh!!! I love it. Such a flattering cut on you, and the color looks great.

THANK YOU FRIEND! I hope you are all having the best weekend!

Love love love the haircut!!! Isn’t it crazy how just cutting your hair can make you look so different?! Now you’re making me question whether I want to grow mine out or get it cut again…😅. I have an appt on Thursday.
Have a great weekend!!!

Reply

Hahah you’ll have to let me know what you decide on Thursday! Thanks so much Mollie!

Good morning! Janae, you look gorgeous – the new cut really flatters you!! Happy you just went for it!!!
Just finished a short run followed by some yoga for runners :o) Also on the weekend agenda: more outdoor projects (cleaning the decks & railings today. So. Much. Pollen.) and a visit to a local winery :o) Have a wonderful weekend!

Your hair looks amazing!! Love!! Perfect for summer too.

Yep! Your hair looks fantastic!! It will be great for summer.
Oh Skye! Love the boots. She really is funny and so fun.
Good job with the stretching. I didn’t do enough of that after my long run yesterday, so I’m feeling it today. My gym is open again, yay ( it opened up the 1st of May), so I may go get in some good recovery miles on the elliptical this morning.
Today will be filled with planting, yardwork, and just enjoying the outside. Tomorrow is definitely a pool day!
Seriously, love the hair! Have a great long run, fun weekend, and restful Sunday!

Your hair looks stunning! Sassy and modern! 💕

I need more pictures of you and your hair!! I wasn’t sure because I loved your hair long and dark and I absolutely love the style AND the color! My hair is just a little longer than yours was but I’m super blonde and I have been debating cutting it for awhile now because it would be easier.

Reply

I LOVE your haircut and color! I took the plunge last week and had 4-5 inches chopped off. I don’t think I’ll ever go back to the length it was…it just feels so light and bouncy this way. :)

Reply

You look so stunning with the new hair cut!!

Tomorrow is Leila’s 7th birthday 🎉 so we rented a bouncy castle for the entire weekend and have all her friends coming over anytime they want to jump. It’s the happiest I have seen her since the pandemic began. So excited for her to enjoy her friends!

Reply

I LOVE your hair!!! We have a similar face shape and this has convinced me to also cut it off. I’d been thinking of doing so after having the same length and style for a few years now. You’re already a few years younger than me and now look even younger so hoping it’ll have the same effect on me ;)

Love the hair:)

Your hair is beautiful!!!!! I’ve been wearing my shorter for the last few years and now I want to grow it out like your new cut. I love it!
1. Long run…13.33 miles. I saw two dead cicadas but I think I could hear them.
2. Going to the plant stand to get more flowers. You can’t have too many flowers.
3. Weed the gardens and plant my new flowers. I should have a glorious farmer tan by Sunday night.
Have a great weekend!!!!

Love your new hair!! Also here’s a fun Friday (a day late) favorite for you, since you are always providing them for us. I too have been focusing on lifting and strength training the past year or two and got this fun shirt. Thought it looked like something you’d like too. https://www.oiselle.com/collections/tank-tops/products/the-women-print-muscle-tank?variant=32995211444309

BEAUTIFUL hair!!!!!! <3

My three things:
My day started with a heated yoga class, and then I roamed around Target and took my time looking at ALLLLL THE THINGS. Right now I am just relaxing and doing laundry, and tonight I have dinner plans with my friend Anna whose third child is due in early July! We are going out for decidedly not-fancy texmex (I think you'd love the place we are going to–Pure Taqueria, if you ever come to ATL!!! Their guac is the best!!!).

Last night, I will admit, Tom and I went out for a fancy dinner at our favorite fancy restaurant. We often go to very budget-friendly places, but we have both been hustling so much for so long that when I got my job, I saved some extra pennies here and there, last weekend looked at what I had saved, and decided to make a reservation–JUST BECAUSE I knew we needed a date night. I had no way of knowing that I would have something worth celebrating!!!

Your hair looks so great, Janae!! What a fun refresh. The good hair gene is STRONG with the women in your family!! Also, is Skye taking stylist appointments? She’s creating some great looks these days…

Love your hair! So so cute!

okay your hair is cuuuuuuuuuuute. Now I wish I had chopped mine yesterday when I had it cut.

Reply

Hair looks amazing!
Enjoy your weekend.

Reply

I love your hair!!! I always want to cut mine shorter but feel like it makes me look like a 12 year old! If your hair still goes into a ponytail easily while running I may be stealing your style!

Reply

Oh I love your hair!! It so suits you! It will feel so weird when you brush it and it ends so suddenly!

Reply

Your hair looks beautiful Janae – it really suits you!

I had my hair chopped off this weekend as well – I had about the same amount as you cut off. My hair is extremely curly so they look a bit crazy but I’ll figure it out – I often straighten as well. My hair grows very quickly so in a month it will be more manageable I’m sure.

I took my 4 year old to a birthday party at Inflatable World today – thankfully we have no Covid in the community here in Australia so life is pretty normal. Anyway, Tommy had a blast at the party.

My third thing is that I had a nap this afternoon which I very rarely do, so I daresay sleep will be difficult tonight, but the nap was lovely at the time!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend :)

Your hair looks so beautiful! I love that cut!

I love your hair!! Doesn’t your head feel so light?! And I’m sure it’s much easier to take care of, too.
My hair is waist length right now, and grows like a weed. I have actually donated my height (5’5″) in hair over the course of my lifetime. Crazy to think about! I’m 40 now, so I figure I’ll keep it super long for another year or so, and then go for one last chop. To each their own, but I don’t think I’m one of those women who can rock really long hair into middle age.
I got popsicles today, inspired by you! :)
