My Visit To Spokane, WA



I can't believe how behind I am! About 2 weeks ago I went to visit my Friend Becca and her hubby Sam out in Spokane, WA. The plan for the trip...craft, thrift and just catch up. We went and saw the new movie Julie and Julia which was cute, funny, and romantic and left you wanting to eat really good food. Well it just so happens that little miss Becca went to culinary school...I may have gained 10lbs that week =). We went on a hike which lead us down to a small lake and past some neat volcanic rock formations. My favorite part of the trip had to be the thift/gsale shopping. In just one hot sunny day we managed to come back with all this loot.

After some extreme shopping we decided to continue to be thrifty and use the gift card that I had for Old Country Buffet. It had been years since either of us had been there, some how we seemed to have forgotten really how gross/weird the place is.

I mean where else can you have pizza, baked potato, tacos, chicken, pasta and shrimp all on one plate? We felt a little sick after cashing out at the dessert bar!
We spent one of our days driving the farm loop that is near Becca and Sams home. The farms are full of fresh produce, flowers, and other tastey treats.
Time with Becca is always fun, I am looking forward to them visiting this winter when it comes time to hit the slopes.

I was waiting for one of you to blog about your trip to WA. Seems like you had a lot of fun. I love the first picture of you two, really cute!

Hey Amy! It was great getting to see you while you were here! And as lame as Spokane can seem to be sometimes, your trip is more proof to me that it's really what you make of it. And it looks like you and Becca had fun. Even in Spokane! =)

Amy, I have to agree with you...isn't Old Country Buffet one of the strangest places on the planet? So, so beyond weird. And yet, somehow, people flock to them... :)

It looks like you two had a wonderful time!

I think it's only fitting that the OCB photos are all greenish and ugly! Oh- good times, good times. Yes, I should start looking for tickets.
