Before we get to the giveaway I had to include cute pictures of my TEN WEEK OLD AS OF TODAY BABY!

Her cheeks are getting bigger every day.

Two awesome things are going to happen today:

1. I get to go to Chipotle!! I have only ever been there one time in Vegas and I absolutely loved it.

2. World Series Game 1 is on tonight.  If you don’t cheer for the Giants we may be in a fight.


The Sunglasses Shop sent me my new absolute favorite pair of sunglasses that I have ever had which is saying a lot because I have a pretty big obsession with sunglasses.  These little beauties are the Oakley Confronts!

A little bit about the Oakley Confront:

Screen Shot 2012 10 24 at 9 25 47 AM

My favorite thing about Oakley’s are that they are both sporty (I used them for my 16 mile run on Saturday and loved how they stayed in place and didn’t fog up for the entire run)


and they are awesome for wearing everywhere else.  Added bonus: Billy thinks I look really cool in them.   These glasses are really comfortable, hip (at least I think I am hip in them) and just expect to see them on the blog in every picture that I take of myself when I am outdoors (and indoors).

Kelly S October 24, 2012 at 2:03 pm

Kristen October 24, 2012 at 5:48 pm


(sorry, I’m a Detroiter!)


Kathee October 24, 2012 at 2:05 pm

I just bought a new pair of Oakley’s on Steep & Cheap just for running! I wore them in my half marathon on Sunday and loved loved loved them!!
Most awesome things about my day – snow and a nap!


Angela October 24, 2012 at 2:07 pm

I absolutely wear sunglasses outside when do an outdoor workout!

Awesome thing #1: I have a job that I love going to pretty much every day!
Awesome thing #2: Knowing there is leftover frozen cookie dessert in the freezer.

Even though I won’t be watching the game (I don’t really follow baseball; now football and beach volleyball, that’s a totally different story!), part of the lesson my students had today (I teach music k-4), was singing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame”! :-)


Chelsie @ Balance, Not Scale October 24, 2012 at 2:08 pm

I don’t wear sunglasses when I run because mine fog!! These would be PERFECT!!!
Victories for today: (1) Purchasing my first EVER box of FMWs. (2) Enjoying my first TWO bowls of FMWs. Thanks for the inspiration!! You rock, Janae!! :)


Jayson (Anwar) :) October 24, 2012 at 2:09 pm

I gotta cheer for the tigers…i AM from Detroit!!


Janae October 24, 2012 at 2:15 pm

Anwar!!!!! Is it really you?!? How the heck are you? My giants are going to dominate your tigers.


Joey October 24, 2012 at 2:09 pm

So excited to watch the game tonight with my kids! Go GIANTS!! Awesome things today include working from home and picking my kids up right after school to hang out. Brooke is so cute, and getting so big!

And yes to sunglasses if it’s sunny, which it always is in Southern California.. but mine fog up :(


Jessica R October 24, 2012 at 2:09 pm

I am excited for you and your trip to Chipotle tonight. Because my husband and I do things the way we want to, we actually had Chipotle cater our wedding. Over a year later and people are still talking to us about that. Definitely best wedding decision (besides the groom of course)


kim@hungryhealthygirl October 24, 2012 at 2:12 pm

Love those glasses. I wear sunglasses in everyday life, but usually not when I run. But if I had a good pair that didn’t slide, I would totally love to wear them running.


Stephanie@nowirun.com October 24, 2012 at 2:13 pm

Sorry we have to fight! I’m from Detroit – Go Tigers!
Love the sunglasses!

Awesome about today – my son has his second voice lesson today!


XLMIC October 24, 2012 at 2:14 pm

I always wear sunglasses when I run during the daytime…often even if it isn’t sunny because the glare hurts my old lady eyeballs! I cannot believe how beautiful Brooke’s smile is! I’ll say one of the awesome things today is that photo of her :) Another awesome thing today was my kids’ excitement about their school’s Halloween parade this morning. So fun!


laura October 24, 2012 at 2:16 pm

Love those glasses


Sonia the Mexigarian October 24, 2012 at 2:18 pm

Sunglasses! Yes! Love them. I need a new pair of glasses that don’t fog up when I run! And stylish to boot :)

You bet I am cheering on the Giants tonight!! Been cheering them on through thick and thin and boy it’s not good on the heart. Freaking torture, but love them. #RallyZito

Haven’t had Chipotle in a while. I’m surprised you haven’t had some recently ;) We got a ton around in the Bay Area now.

And Brooke is just darling! I can’t get over how full of expression she is! Such a happy lovely baby. Happy 10 week old birthday!


Jerilee October 24, 2012 at 2:19 pm

So cute! The baby and the glasses :). I don’t wear sunglasses when I run because I am too cheap to buy any! Winning these ones would be perfect!


TorontoRunner October 24, 2012 at 2:22 pm

Happy 10 weeks!
AHHHH that second picture is EVERYTHING!

I’m a massive sports fan – will definitely be watching tonight!


Jacqueline October 24, 2012 at 2:24 pm

I live in sunglasses!!
We’re watching the game tonight. Our neighbors are going to hate us because we get so loud and yell at the t.v. Good times.


Kris October 24, 2012 at 2:26 pm

I love smiley Brooke’s pictures. :)
I feel naked if I run without sunglasses. It seems weird to me.
Watching the Giants of course (I’m in Northern California).


Courtney F October 24, 2012 at 2:27 pm

No sunglasses when I run, but any other time outside I have them on!

2 things of awesomeness for today…on my lunch break I get to go visit my daughter at my parent’s house and she crawled up in my lap and fell asleep!
my husband is making ground turkey taco bake for supper!


Annette@FitnessPerks October 24, 2012 at 2:28 pm

Brooke is so cute! Happy 10 months, baby girl!


Ashley @ My Food 'N' Fitness Diaries October 24, 2012 at 2:28 pm

When you first posted that photo of you and the sandwich whenever it was, my first thought was how much I love those sunglasses. Super cute on you!


Kayla @ kpLovingit October 24, 2012 at 2:30 pm

Agghhhh, I only have a pair of sporty cheapos for running. WISH I had something better!


Maureen October 24, 2012 at 2:33 pm

Those shades are the cutest. But not as cute as Brooke :) I also think you should do a giveaway for that sandwich holy cow I just got soo hungry seeing that!


Kayla N October 24, 2012 at 2:35 pm

Yes I wear sunglasses when I run. Two awesome things that happened today…one…my boyfriend and I may have decided on Halloween costumes (super late I know)…and two lasagna being part of my supper. And of course I am watching baseball! :)


Kirsten October 24, 2012 at 2:43 pm

If its sunny, I wear sunglasses when I run. I also wear a visor (an orange Giants one!) to keep the sun off my face. For races though I skip the sunglasses and just do the visor. And now that I think about it, my running sunglasses actually are a pair of Oakleys.

Go Giants!!!


Brittany October 24, 2012 at 2:43 pm

Yes – sunglasses are a must! I own one pair of Oakleys so cute and sporty.. mine are very large and I think they had some catchy name like ‘Trouble’ haha

2 things about my day: I have FAR too much to do at work but I am going on a SPOOKAPALOOZA run with my local Run-On! store tonight!!!! I was thinking of dressing as a ‘Run-On!’ sentence???

and… what game? LOL I just host sporting events for the company and the food :-D


Brittany @Berries and Barbells October 24, 2012 at 2:45 pm

We are going to be eat sweet potato soup and watching the game. GO GIANTS!

I tried wearing sunglasses on a few runs and they always slip and fall off…I stick to my visor.


Stacey October 24, 2012 at 2:45 pm

Awesome giveaway!! And LOVE BROOKE’S CHEEKS!


Karen @ Runner Girl Eats October 24, 2012 at 2:47 pm

LOVE those glasses! I HAVE to wear sunglasses if the sun is out. It almost guarantees a bad day if I am not wearing sunglasses. I will be flipping back and forth to the World Series and cheering on the Giants tonight:) Awesome thing about my day: leftover butternut squash soup. sooo delicious!


Gretchen October 24, 2012 at 2:51 pm

I entered! :)
Awesome thing one: I’m home from work!
Awesome thing two: My 5th hour was great today! Yay! :)

Gotta root for the Tigers…I’m from Michigan! :)


Maria October 24, 2012 at 3:14 pm

Me too….go Tigers!


Karen October 24, 2012 at 3:05 pm

I wear sunglasses in the rain and snow. I’m also a Tigers fan. Sorry. haha. :)


Liz (Little Bitty Bakes) October 24, 2012 at 3:12 pm

Just left a message on the Facebook page, these sunglasses are so cute Janae! As are Brooke’s little 10 week old cheeks ;)


Maria October 24, 2012 at 3:13 pm

Brooke is adorable! I am watching the game, but here in Michigan it’s tigers sister! Sorry :)


Natalie Pyle October 24, 2012 at 3:16 pm

I will forever be a TEXAS RANGERS fan!! <3


Chelsea @ GlitterAndSweat October 24, 2012 at 3:18 pm

surprisingly no lol i don’t like them moving when i run

i think i figured out what future salon i may want to work at!!

most likely not lol i get bored


Holly October 24, 2012 at 3:33 pm

HAPPY 10 weeks Brooke!! :D You’re getting cuter by the day!!!
LOVE those sunglasses, I noticed them in the sub picture from earlier this week & thought they looked so good on you.


Deana (rockorangefive) October 24, 2012 at 3:57 pm

Another Michigander here…so Go Tigers!!

Awesome things about today:
1. Went to Sam’s Club and had a Janae moment…I went crazy nuts on buying grapes, strawberries, etc….i think the grapes be some sort of mutant grapes…they are HUGE!!
2. Made old school Dirt Cake for dessert tonight (google it!!). Last time I had it was a cousins bday party at least 15 yrs ago. Small problem – have tons left over and we won’t get through it all. (want me to overnight the rest to you?! )


Janae October 24, 2012 at 4:38 pm

Ahhh grapes and dirt cake?!?!? Yes please overnight that!!!!


Amanda @ .running with spoons. October 24, 2012 at 4:01 pm

Brooke’s smile in that first picture… omigosh I just can’t. Cuteness overload for sure.

Two awesome things about my day? A little girl in the grocery store telling me that I’m so “pretty and tall” because I helped her get a box of cereal that she couldn’t reach from the top shelf; and an out of the blue text from a good friend that I haven’t talked to in a while :D


Anne October 24, 2012 at 4:08 pm

Yey, Happy Ten Week Birthday Brooke!

I tried to get my friends to go to Chipotle for lunch yesterday, sadly I was over-ruled, enjoy!


Kristen @ notsodomesticated October 24, 2012 at 4:10 pm

I can’t believe you’ve only been to Chipotle once! That is my husband’s #1 favorite place to eat. We probably eat there 3-4 times a month haha. My favorite is there vegetarian burrito bowl (even though I’m not a vegetarian!). I get white rice, black beans, fajita green peppers and onions, lots of mild salsa, corn salsa, and a huge blog of guacamole. And then I add a ton of Chipotle hot sauce on top. Yum!


Ashley W October 24, 2012 at 4:15 pm

Posted on their Facebook!

Two awesome things about today? I’m alive and I’m healthy. :)


Katie @ Peace Love & Oats October 24, 2012 at 4:16 pm

I’m sorry, but can we back up a minute… You’ve only been to Chipotle ONCE?!?!?! That seems like craziness to me. Sheer Craziness. Almost as crazy as how CRAZY CUTE Brooke is!


Madeline October 24, 2012 at 4:32 pm

I posted on their page! I wear sunglasses when I run too, when the sun is out as well :)


Aimee @ See Aimee Run October 24, 2012 at 4:45 pm

I think we’re in a fight, Janae… the hubby and I are HUGE Tigers fans!! Your Giants will have a lot of momentum coming into this game though!


Janae October 24, 2012 at 5:16 pm

We are in a fight.


Aimee @ See Aimee Run October 24, 2012 at 7:13 pm

Your Giants made our ace look like a rookie, and Zito’s been incredible. But it’s only game one… here’s to a long and exciting series! :)


Michelle W October 24, 2012 at 4:46 pm

Sunglasses are a must for me! But I always have to steal my husband’s because I broke one of the lenses of my super nice sunglasses over a year ago and am too cheap to replace them.

Two good things about today: One, I found a quilting store a few towns over and am SO excited to take some classes through them. And two, we finally got our fridge and ice maker fixed!


Reghan October 24, 2012 at 4:49 pm

Brooke is so adorable! My son is exactly 10 weeks old today too!! :) Doesn’t time fly?!


Emily October 24, 2012 at 4:52 pm

My baby girl is 5.5 weeks, and we moved 2 weeks after she was born! It definitely would’ve been easier before she was born :)
I just had to comment because my mom loves your blog, and because I LOVE Chipotle. One of my all-time favorite restaurants. I never turn it down.


Jojo October 24, 2012 at 5:04 pm

I hate squinting in the sunlight, so yes, I wear sunglasses when I go running, or just being outside. Sometimes on cloudy days as well. I need new ones, though, since mine fog and don’t fit on my face that well, I have to push them up when I run :(


Caitlin October 24, 2012 at 5:04 pm

I NEED sunglasses for running. Today I ran and kept getting blinded by the sun- was making me crazy.
2 good things about today: I was notified that I have a job interview on Tuesday and I ran 8.3 miles and could’ve kept going.
Baseball (actually all sports)= blah for me. Although I was up at 5 AM for the women’s olympic marathon!


Kristy @Kristy's Health Revolution October 24, 2012 at 5:21 pm

I run a lot in the evenings, and my favorite running path goes to the west, so I definitely NEED to wear sunglasses, but I don’t,because I’ve never found a pair I can wear comfortably while running. I would love to try these.


Shawntel October 24, 2012 at 5:25 pm

I just lost my running sunglasses :( I am not watching the game because I am a Tampa Bay fan and I am bitter!!

2 awesome things about today- I met up with the girlfriends after work and then end of the work week is near!!


Elizabeth M. October 24, 2012 at 5:32 pm

I can’t get over Brooke and her adorableness. Seriously. I just want to squeeze her! I cannot go outside without sun glasses, let alone run.


Danica @ It's Progression October 24, 2012 at 5:42 pm

I wear sunglasses all year long except for when I’m running–I’ve never found a pair that don’t bounce around!


Natalie @ Free Range Human October 24, 2012 at 5:45 pm

Those sunglasses are so cute! I never go anywhere without sunglasses. An awesome thing about my day is I finally got my sweat on after a really stressful and busy week!


Kaelin October 24, 2012 at 6:00 pm

I have a pair of Oakleys and I wear them EVERYWHERE! My husband thought I was nuts for paying so much for sunglasses, but I use them at least 4 times a day. Driving, running, walking, boating, riding horses, everything. Worth it!

The pair you have are adorable, I just might have to get a second pair! ;)

Two awesome things – it was sunny and 80 here in Iowa today! I got to ride my horse this afternoon. Always a great combo.


amy October 24, 2012 at 6:32 pm

Oakley Confront


Kristine October 24, 2012 at 6:35 pm

I don’t wear sunglasses while running but I do LOVE my Maui Jims for all other sunny times:)
I have one really cool thing to share about today…..while Spiky is 10 weeks old today, I am exactly 10 weeks pregnant!!!!! Such exciting times!!!!
I love your blog so much. Your posts make me smile every day:)


Janae October 24, 2012 at 7:18 pm

Ahhhhhhhhhhh congratulations! I am so so happy for you! Being a mom is the greatest thing ever! Please keep me updated!


Hollywood Healthy October 24, 2012 at 6:56 pm

2 awesome things? The parents came over for dinner and I made my favorite dinner spaghetti!!


Meg October 24, 2012 at 7:23 pm

I liked them and left that message! I’m obsessed with Oakleys! I love how they can look super stylish but also extremely practical. I splurged and bought some after I had LASIK and they’re lifesavers – I live in NH so there’s always sand/dirt/stuff in the air and I was so paranoid about something getting in my eyes. I lived in them for two months! I’d love to have a less sporty looking pair though. Oh and P.S. that first picture of Brooke is amazing!! Her smile kills me!


luv what you do October 24, 2012 at 7:56 pm

I love running and biking with sunglasses!


Sandy October 24, 2012 at 8:00 pm

Brooke is getting so big and is so adorable!


jan October 24, 2012 at 8:23 pm

10 weeks, what? How is that possible?? I love her little smile.

Love the sunglasses, too! Glad to hear they are good for running. I’ve been wanting a pair of stylish AND functional sunglasses for awhile!


Angela October 24, 2012 at 8:24 pm

I’m watching the game! SANDOVAL is my hero.

PS. being in St. Louis was quite awkward last week…. SF pride baby.


Darcee October 24, 2012 at 8:43 pm

You look H.O.T.T. hotttt in those shades mama!!! Love you!!


Kelly October 24, 2012 at 9:27 pm

Best thing about my day #1: getting to go for a run after teaching. I told my kiddos that I started training for my first half. They are now part of my training cheering section.

Best thing about my day #2: catching a very shy and quiet grade 2 boy Gangnam style dance his way out of the library…and being the only one who noticed in a room full of 50 kids and 3 teachers!


STUFT Mama October 24, 2012 at 9:35 pm

You and your sunglasses are just too cute. :) I need a new pair in the worst way. Didn’t watch the game. Shocker. :) Hugs!!!!! Yay 10 week bday to Brooke!


Cathryn October 24, 2012 at 10:00 pm

I would LOVE new sunnies…my boy scratched my current ones!!!


Laura October 24, 2012 at 10:10 pm

SOOO GLAD you’re a NOR-CAL-ER NOW! GOOOO GIANNTS!!!! #panda #3homeruns #zito


Cait the Arty Runnerchick October 24, 2012 at 10:10 pm

i luv chipotle!! do frequent them much more, it’s life changing. ;) jk.


Scallywag October 25, 2012 at 12:12 am

OH MY GOODNESS. I love Oakleys. Its not really sunny enough here to need them when running but I have in one high summer. Awesome things about my day- Im running tonight and have a goal for work today! Ha ha saddo pleasures :)


meg October 25, 2012 at 3:34 am

yay for this giveaway!!! love oaks!!


Kari @ Running Ricig October 25, 2012 at 4:54 am

I posted on their wall!

I rarely wear sunglasses when I run. I sweat way too much and end up getting it dripping in my eyes. Drives me crazy.


Brittany @ GOtheXtraMile October 25, 2012 at 5:51 am

Brooke is so adorable, it kills me! Love those sunglasses!


Madison October 25, 2012 at 7:31 am

I am sure someone has already asked in a previous post, but since this is my first time seeing it, where did you get your gold oversized watch? Michael Kors? I love love it


Janae October 25, 2012 at 8:14 am

Yes!! It is kors! I got it at Nordstrom:)


Leslie October 25, 2012 at 7:45 am

YAAAAAAAY GIVEAWAYS!!!! By the way, holy moly, BROOKE is getting so big! She is so gorgeous!

Christine October 25, 2012 at 9:25 am

While reading this I’m eating Chipotle, sooo yummy!!!


Erin October 25, 2012 at 9:32 am

Another Detroit girl here :) I’m headed to Chipotle for lunch… it’s been too long!! I get the same as you, chicken bowl! so good!


Rachelle October 25, 2012 at 11:01 am

Oh I want to win. I liked the fb page. :)


Sarah October 25, 2012 at 11:33 am

I think I’m doing the whole running with sunglasses thing wrong. I’ve seen you talk about how you love it and always wear glasses, but when I do it I feel like my eyeballs don’t get enough air or something and it is sweaty / hot overload and I can’t take it!

What am I doing wrong?!?!


Nicole V. October 25, 2012 at 11:47 am

Oh my goodness! The pictures of Brilly are so cute! I love her little cheeks and her expressions!


nagrade October 25, 2012 at 12:01 pm

Love the sunglasses!


penny@herworldlypleasures October 25, 2012 at 1:28 pm

I want to pinch Brooke’s cheeks too!! So cute!!


Julie nicole October 25, 2012 at 5:49 pm

Omg so funny youre doing this giveaway i saw the sunglasses a few posts back with that sandwich and was going to ask where you got them and forgot!!


Aubrey October 26, 2012 at 8:20 pm

Love the sunglasses. hope I win!


Katie October 27, 2012 at 2:33 pm

I entered the Oakley giveaway!!! I loooove those glasses- Billy’s right, you look really cool in them! ;)


Sania Akbar October 29, 2012 at 8:34 am

No i dont wear sunglasses when running..
Two awesome things about your day is morning tea yes and waking up early ..
Who is watching the game tonight?
Unfortunately, I am not a sports person :(


Theresa J October 29, 2012 at 9:13 pm

I feel like I can’t see without my glasses on now

The Hungry Runner Girl January 3, 2013 at 6:10 pm

Yeah! They announced on their Facebook page and the winner emailed me saying she received them:)
