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 ...
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 ...
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), ...
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 Uber.Totals.io and logged into my main account (yes, I have two, more ...
If you thought I enjoyed the Wantables Intimate Collections each month, you should see me when my Wantables Fitness Collection arrives! Since I’m just getting back into working out and going to CrossFit, I’ve been needing some more workout clothes, and this Wantables box fits my needs!
Here’s what I got in the January Fitness Collection:
Nux Freedom Cami
Waisted Shine Legging
This December Wantables Intimates box was even better than the November AND October ones. It just keeps getting better and better! First of all I received 4 items this month, one of which are some slipper socks that have kept my feet warm at work for months!
Here’s the items I got in December:
Sweet Escape Chemise
Mukluk Slipper Socks
Striped Seamless Thong
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.
It has been over 3 years since I wrote my rant on the Grammy's asking why they don't care about us in the Mountain Time Zone when it comes to Twitter, and NOTHING has changed! Earlier tonight, Aimee texted me about this Twitter vote that American Idol was holding for people to tweet who they wanted to keep on the show, during the last 5 minutes of the show. The problem? THE SHOW WAS ONLY LIVE FOR PEOPLE ON THE EAST COAST! That means that for those of us in the Mountain Time Zone, were not able to tweet our vote, or if we did tweet when the show ...
I hate bra shopping. I mean, does anyone *really* like it? I know I should put more time and effort into something that I wear every single day, but it isn’t easy or fun. I always struggle to find a bra that I like, that is a good color, where the cups are the right size for me and doesn’t have a lot of lace, bows or other fluff…the list goes on and on.
Luckily Title Nine invited me to their bra event last week and let me meet with their Bravangelist – WHO WAS AMAZING! She measured me and had me trying on sports bras that actually fit me within 10 minutes of walking in the door.

Dead Sara is a band I’m currently obsessed with and SO excited that I was able to see them perform twice at SXSW 2015 – with my parents! They’re coming to Denver on April 10, 2015 to the Marquis Theatre and Wiredogs are opening. I bought tickets the day they came out, so I’m even more excited that my brother’s band will be opening, too! Take a listen to their new album, Pleasure to Meet You, as I haven’t stopped playing it all week. #obsessed
