|I love how these turned out!|
One of the nice things about driving to Pullman is the Palouse Scenic Byway. Miles & miles of the most beautiful rolling hills. It is something you really have to see in person to appreciate.
Fellow Cougs: You know what I mean!!!!
I made it to Pullman in good time. Naseem & I visited for a while, but she had an important midterm in the morning. I let her be & walked around on campus for a while so she could study.
Later, we met up at the library so she could finish up a research project.
After she was finished, I took her out to a birthday dinner at South Fork restaurant. Guess what I had: If you said Cougar Gold Macaroni & Cheese...you were right!!!!

On Friday, I got up bright & early and went up on campus.
I stopped at one building to surprise my friend Pam; but I was the one who got the surprise. Pam took Friday off. Darn it! I left her a nice note & some 'Crimson & Gray' WSU cookies I had baked and went down to the basement to visit the Charles R. Conner Museum.
|The museum has over 700 taxidermied animals, but I liked this guy best.|
|Katie & I|
|Me, Nas & Katie|
I said goodbye to Katie after we spent 5 hours together & helped Naseem deliver all her party supplies to a friend's apartment. I stayed for a while to clean & frost cupcakes; but then left when about 50 people arrived at once. Too crazy for me!
|We woke up to snow the next morning.|
We had to cancel our plans to visit a few neighboring towns, as the snowstorm got worse & created blizzard conditions that shut down the highways out of Pullman. So we stayed in & I met some of Nas' friends.
|Hanna & Liza|
I convinced the girls to let me order pizza from Pizza Pipeline for dinner. I used to love to order pizza from them. I have to say...I prefer the pizza from Costco now. Sorry PP!
We sat with Nas' friend Marcus.Fun fact: Marcus was Naseem's first friend at WSU (bonus fact: Marcus speaks fluent Spanish).
It was a fun game with WSU up by 13 points at one time. Sadly, we lost the game 55-59. Oh well, next year!!!
Nas went out with friends after the game & I went to bed. I was so sad to pack up my things & leave. It was a fun filled three days & I am already looking forward to my next visit.
I miss you Nas!!! Thanks for giving up your weekend for me!♥
Beginning of the drive home.
