Why doesn't this happen to me?!
So... this woman in North Carolina goes to her local Goodwill store, and finds this large (rather unimpressive) painting on canvas. She paints cats... cats... so she buys the canvas painting for $9.99 with the intention of painting over it (a cat, of course). Long story short... a few months later, she ends up selling the painting (an original "Vertical Diamond" by Ilya Bolotowsky) for $27,000!!!

That will buy her a lot of canvases... for a lot more cats.

What a COLORFUL Labor Day weekend!
So, how did you spend your Labor Day weekend? I got the rare chance to get together with (almost) all of my best girl friends for a mini roadtrip to New Jersey... for THE COLOR RUN! What is this "run" that I actually sound EXCITED about? Well.. only the "happiest 5k on the planet!" It's a 5k (3.1 mile) run/walk that has already visited several cities across the US where participants start out wearing all white and end up looking like a rainbow threw up all over them! And that's a GOOD thing!

The "paint" used to douse the runners/walkers is actually a powder... sort of like cornstarch but much more exciting. At the 1k, 2k, 3k and 4k markers you run through a slew of volunteers attacking you with the powder in orange, blue, yellow and pink! And then you get to the end and have a sort of color explosion party. Everyone gets their own packs of color - green, blue, red - and you get to throw it around in a crowd of other color runners while the DJ spins some dance tunes. It was not only the happiest 5k on the planet but also one of the coolest parties I've ever been to.

I know I will be color running again as soon as possible, and you should, too! You don't need to be a runner to do it, and it's a great way to get outside and be active with friends and/or family. Check it all out here (and watch their official Color Run video to get yourself super pumped about it):
