Silicon Valley Fashion Week? by Betabrand!

By Monday, May 18, 2015 0 Permalink 0

May 14-17 was the first annual Silicon Valley Fashion Week? (the ? is part of the name) in San Francisco. There was wearable tech, crowdfunded designs and, of course, drones that walked the runway during the 3 night event in the heart of the Mission District.

Not only did Jonathon and I attend, but Jon was asked to walk the runway in his Betabrand design! It was so much fun, and of course I have video!

Weekend Traveling – Eating in Dallas Texas – Coffee, BBQ & Tacos

By Monday, May 11, 2015 0 Permalink 0

One thing I was *really* looking forward to while we were in Dallas, was eating some BBQ! I went the entire week at SXSW without eating any BBQ. It was a shame, I know, but I wasn’t going to let that happen this time! The only thing on Jonathon’s list was tacos. We were only in town for 48 hours, but many of those hours were at night or during the marathon, so we only got in a handful of meals while there, but they were FANTASTIC!

Read more to find out where we had the BEST BBQ and most amazing, delicious and different tacos!

How To Find Hidden Facebook Status Updates On Brand Pages

By Sunday, May 10, 2015 0 Permalink 0

So, you’ve posted a status update to a brand’s Facebook Page. A few days later you’re asked to remove it. You hide the post to comply. Another few days later, they ask you what the engagement on that post you’ve hidden was. How do you find hidden Facebook status update on the Brand Page?

I’ve found the answer that Facebook Forums won’t help you find! It is in the Activity Log, but it isn’t easy to get to on a Facebook Brand Page.

Tweetdeck Allows You to Pause GIFs!

By Thursday, April 30, 2015 0 Permalink 0

One of my bigger pet peeves or general annoyances are moving/flashing things. This can be anything from a strobe light or flickering light to moving ads on websites to autoplayed video to GIFs on social sites (specifically Twitter). Something about it makes me anxious and removes my ability to concentrate or think correctly (I might be weird). I've been using Tweetdeck for years, and love the ability to create lists and columns to help me keep up with different groups of people. Recently (within the last year) Twitter allowed for GIFs to be added to Tweets. While this is all fun and games - IT'S BEEN ...

Big D Marathon in Dallas, Texas

By Monday, April 27, 2015 0 Permalink 0

As I said earlier, the whole reason we were in Dallas was because one night, Jonathon stumbled upon a post in the GORUCK Facebook community about Mark Webb who had lost his leg in an accident. He was in recovery, set to receive a prosthetic shortly and was going to run a marathon with it just a few short months later. The GORUCK community immediately rallied behind Mark and signed up to do the marathon with him. Many people signing up in support, including Jonathon, had never met Mark, or ever run a marathon, but they were ready to run the Big D with Mark. While ...

Plague of Bad Hotel Rooms in Dallas, Texas

By Friday, April 24, 2015 0 Permalink 0

Just a few weeks ago, Jonathon and I headed to Dallas so he could support a fellow GORUCK buddy who had lost his leg and was running the Big D Marathon. This was Jonathon's first marathon, and I'd never been to Texas outside of SXSW, so I insisted on coming with so we could meet up with friends and view the city. In planning the trip, we decided to take the late night flight into Dallas, and landed around 10 pm on Saturday night, the night before the marathon. Our plan was to go to the hotel (where many of the GORUCK marathon crew was staying), ...

Uber Infographic

By Wednesday, April 15, 2015 0 Permalink 0

I'm not a huge Uber user as UberX *just* arrived in Boulder, but I do often rely on it when traveling. When I'm in Denver, I usually trade on and off with Aimee on who is buying an Uber on our way home from shows, and Jonathon and I used it a few time in Ireland and exclusively during our trip in Dallas. But, I'm a sucker for data and infographics, so when I saw friends tweeting about Uber Totals, I knew I HAD to see what my total statistics were! I quickly went to and logged into my main account (yes, I have two, more ...

Climb Hard Cider Company in Loveland Colorado

By Friday, April 10, 2015 0 Permalink 0

Since going paleo a few years ago, one thing I’ve missed is beer. I’ve replaced it with cider at home, but that isn’t always feasible when out at a bar with friends or co-workers and especially hard at concert venues. Yes, some places will have the generic ciders like Strongbow, Magners or Angry Orchard (which I refuse to drink), but those tend to be high in sugar and give me a killer headache the next day.

Luckily Colorado is home to many Cider companies, which include some of my favorites! Last weekend Jonathon and I took a little road trip up to Loveland Colorado to taste what Climb Cider Company had to offer.
