Color Run Craziness

This past weekend was so much fun! We participated in the Color Run, this national tour kicked off in Arizona and I couldn't be more proud to be the first stop. The Color Run is a 5K run where you wear all white and at ever kilometer you are doused in a different color. This is a HUGE MESS but so well worth it!! Are you running the Color Run? Share your photos here or on our Facebook page.

Check out some of the photos from the run.

Fist Pump Friday

Happy FPF! Truly hoping your day has gone better than mine. It this music was reflective of my day, it would be Daniel Powder Had a Bad Day and no one wants to hear that. Plus, it's been pouring buckets here in NY all day. I think I want to go back to Costa Rica.

Enjoy your weekends!! Do something for yourself!

Whoa - is this a new boy band??

Something new.

Something old(er).

Everybody's got a dream.

Nissan Mobile Office
This past weekend I got to get out with one of my great friends. She's a marine, owns her own line of cowboy boots and is a true blue Texan. We watched the Giants, 49ers game downtown and just started talking about how owning a business is crazy hard and incredibly worth it.

Starting a business right now. In this second is worth it more than ever. America is in a motion of change where people are supporting small independent shops. It's a movement that I couldn't be more behind if I tried.

Our parents and grandparents lived in this time where you got up, went to the office, answered to your boss, clocked out and went home. People today want so much more than that. How can I affect change in a company or the world if I have to go through six managers before it reaches someone who actually matters.

Today's offices can be anywhere, and office hours can be at anytime. Technology has allowed us to live our lives while still accomplishing what we need to. Check out the Nissan Mobile Office at the top.

Do you own your own business? Do you want to own your own business? Tell us about it!

Roller Derby Time

This weekend we got away and went to Roller Derby. The Bad News Beaters faced off against the Northern Arizona Whiskey Rollers. If you've ever seen the movie Whip It, that's the experience we thought we were going in to. It wasn't really anything like the movie, don't get us wrong, roller derby is a hard sport. Though, it's a community sport and a really good time.

If you've never been, I would highly suggest getting out to one of the matches. The guys go first and then the women come out for the main event. The jammers (the ones that score the points) are amazing on their skates. They have to get around and through the pack to score points and it reminds one of football on roller skates.

We are going again in March and can't wait to see the Jailbirds take to the ring.

Hello Mr. Mustache-butt MC. 

These girls were bad ass. 


Intentional. :)

Sling shot maneuver?

Out on her own. 

Move bitch, get out the way. . . 

Beater Jammer

The pack. 

Some time-out entertainment.

A Man on a Mission

Today is a day of celebration and reflection on a man that had a dream. He had a dream to allow people of color the same rights as those people without any color. As I think about how far we've come I wonder how far we have to go.

One of my favorite quotes from MLK Jr. is "We may have all come on different ships, but we're in the same boat now." I feel that it is as true yesterday as it is today. We make up this place all of us call home, why can't we make it the best place it can be?
