Favorite Eastern Washington Town...

Once again...Pullman did not disappoint


Everything about the weekend was perfect...the drive over, the RV tailgating lot, the good friends, the new friends we made, a not too shabby showing by the Cougs, Sellas, new crimson and gray attire, Cougar Gold cheese, the Coug, Valhalla, the view from atop the library, the completely renovated CUB, walking along the mall, the leaves, the smell of the Palouse air...ahhhhh I love this place and am so happy that we finally made a trip back. I may have even enjoyed Pullman a bit more than usual considering I was sober for the entire weekend...Steve made up for my soberness.

Of course we had to pick up some gear for our future Cougar

You know you're old, when you'd rather stay in on a Friday night to play your favorite game than go to the bars

The highlight of the game - at one point we were BEATING the #3 team in the country!

Steve may have been the most popular fan at the game with his partially homemade Incredible Hulk hand

In honor of one of the best Cougs of all time and my second cousins husband, Drew Bledsoe, Steve had to sport his jersey

Valhalla with Steve James and Scott - so fun to see some of my old co-workers from the bar

Pretty sure this photo was taken right after Steve had repeated the same story to Eric and Jumbo for the 50th time...ahhh the things you realize when you're the only sober one around

I cracked up laughing at your comment about hearing Steve tell the same story for the 50th time and you were the only one to realize it because you were sober. Same thing happened to me a few years back at Oktoberfest. Love your Pullman pics. Can you post them or send me some in e-mail so I can print them? They would make great gifts for fellow Cougs!

Okay, the fact that I was teary reading all about your fun times in Pullman has convinced me that 2011 is THE year to go back, bring Kev and stop living vicariously through pictures!!! The first picture made me laugh, it's like you two forgot to take a pic with the babmbino's gear, hopped out of the car on the side of the road to be sure you got some "Palouse" in the background :)
Wish we had been there! Next time!!

AHHH!! Feeling so H-O-M-E-S-I-C-K for Pullman right now (and hungry for Sellas and some Cougar Gold). LOVE LOVE LOVE the pictures - we are planning a reunion trip together someday soon.
