Is your hair naturally straight or curly?  Do you wear it that way?  Mine’s curly, but I usually straighten it.

What’s the last movie you saw?

Did you go out or stay in for New Year’s Eve?  I loved staying home with pizza and champagne!

    great questions–
    naturally curly and usually wear it that way.
    also just saw Wild and loved it. my husband didn’t like it as much.
    NYE-went out for dinner early then home. my daughter’s birthday is NYE!

      Thats so cool…i hope she had a wonderful birthday!!

  • Rae

    My hair is curly but super long so it just looks frizzy. If mine looked that good, i’d wear it curly 24/7. We stayed in NYE. Pizza and a movie. Loved it.

    • http://jenchoosesjoy.com jenchoosesjoy

      Its so much fun to stay home!

    – Curly and usually wear it curly because I’m too lazy to spend an hour straightening it on a regular basis. 😉
    – How to Train Your Dragon 2. I don’t even remember the last grown up movie I saw.
    – Cajun food for NYE dinner. Wine, champagne and a good gme of Clue with our daughter to end the night!
    We’re exciting people!

    • http://jenchoosesjoy.com jenchoosesjoy

      Thats sounds like a perfect NYE! I think you need a date night to see a grown up movie;)

  • http://www.ksrunner.com Sarah @ KS Runner

    I have wavy hair but usually straighten it. Your curls are beautiful!

    Last movie I saw was Night at the Mueseum, it was really cute. I really want to see Wild and Unbroken though!

    We went to a movie on NYE the stopped at my brothers to wait for midnight. In bed early. It was perfect!

    • http://jenchoosesjoy.com jenchoosesjoy

      That sounds like a really nice NYE:) I want to see unbroken next!

  • http://leerunsdistances.wordpress.com FLRunnerBoy

    Ohhhhh guacamole!!! my other weakness next to chocolate and peanut butter. It’s definitely a close second. Most recent movies … Captain Phillips and Dolphin Tale 2. The curly wet hair look looks good on you Jen!!! And you’re a Brooks lover!!!! You just officially gained more cool points within me 😉 I’ve been running happy for 4 years solid now! :) and thank you so much for the Monday morning W.O.W. much appreciated :)

      Our Brooks rep loves to give me a hard time because i run in Sauconys! Brooks is releasing a new Launch in February and im excited to try it.

      • http://leerunsdistances.wordpress.com FLRunnerBoy

        Yesssss come on over to the dark ummmmm I mean “HAPPY” side haha lol :)

  • http://www.notyourmamasmarathon.blogspot.com Kelli

    All that food looks amazing! I’m sorry to hear about your Achilles :( And your gym clothes are the cutest!

    My hair has a natural wave if I let it air dry, but I usually blow dry in the winter so it’s always straight now.

    Last movie I saw in the theater was Interstellar – amazing!

    We stayed in for NYE… and went to bed at 11:30, ha! We haven’t stayed up till midnight for NYE since before we got married!

    • http://jenchoosesjoy.com jenchoosesjoy

      Ooo…i really want to see Interstellar!

  • suzysuzyheather

    Curly! And if I straightened it, I’d be in the bathroom longer than after a curry dinner. Your first sweat of the year is so polite! My treadmill sweat covers every square inch of my shirt and then some.

    • http://jenchoosesjoy.com jenchoosesjoy

      You have the prettiest curls!!

  • http://www.runningnreading.com Running ‘N’ Reading

    Jen! I love your curls!! You should “let your hair down” more often. 😉 When my hair was the length of yours (and longer), I would wear it curly fairly frequently; running always takes precedence over primping, unfortunately. I finally decided to get back to my pixie roots last year, so now I don’t have to worry about it. I’m delighted to hear that you enjoyed “Wild;” I can’t wait to see it! We saw “Unbroken” on Christmas Day, and then “Mockingjay – Part 1″ on NYE; after that, it was home and in bed – ha! Hope you’re doing well; have a great Monday!

    • http://jenchoosesjoy.com jenchoosesjoy

      I still want to see unbroken and mockingjay!

      • http://www.runningnreading.com Running ‘N’ Reading

        They were both really good, Jen; I think you’d enjoy them!

  • http://travisandmarilynkeys.blogspot.com Marilyn

    Haha! I feel like that dog after way too many holiday treats!

    We saw Unbroken the week after Christmas. It was very good, but hard to watch some of the scenes. I just started reading Wild, so that is next on my list.

  • thesimplepeach

    My hair is curly naturally and usually gets worn that way if I don’t have enough time to straighten it before work after a morning run. Yours looks super cure curly! Like many of the folks above I agree that Unbroken was absolutely incredible but difficult to watch sometimes. I am reading Wild right now and love her story. I’m looking forward to reading more of it!

    • http://jenchoosesjoy.com jenchoosesjoy

      I want to see Unbroken, but ive put it off because i know it will be hard to watch. I read Wild a few years ago and fell in love with the book…enjoy:)

  • AmandaM

    I have super curly hair! Not like your nice curly hair. Mine is very frizzy and I have A LOT of it (80’s style Sarah Jessica Parker :) ). I have embraced the fro but enjoy straightening it for nights out.

    • http://jenchoosesjoy.com jenchoosesjoy

      I try to embrace the curly mess, but it so much fun to straighten my hair!
