Fall Festival!

Fall Festival is an event put on each year by the College of Agricultural, Human, and Natural Resource Sciences (CAHNRS), which just so happens to be my place of work, at WSU! Have I mentioned how much I love my career? Seriously, I love it! I work with some of the greatest people in the Palouse -- down to earth, genuine, hardworking, innovative, and down right fun! It is so rewarding to love your job and the people you work with. For how much time we spend at work (which honestly I think is way too much) there is no reason not to love what you are doing. I always dreamed of having a career, one that I was passionate about and excelled at. Not just another job to pay the bills. I think I've found my match!

This was my first time participating in Fall Festival and I must say it is the best event on the WSU campus or any university campus for that matter that I've attended. Students, faculty, staff, family and friends gathered at Spillman Plaza to celebrate the wonderful college we are all apart of. Department displays and club exhibits filled the plaza. Flavored honey, live cockroaches to hold (I did not go near those things!), fresh produce, Ferdinand's ice cream, wheat bouquets, delicious Long Horn BBQ, and Butch were just a few of the exciting things at the festival. Isabelle was able to join me after school and finally met some of the great people I work with. She had a blast! She climbed up and down the stairs, babbled at everyone, mastered the grassy hills, ate Ferdinand's ice cream... and cried when she saw Butch. Beside being scarred of Butch she had a great time. Here are some pictures for you to enjoy. Happy Friday my friends!

This is after Isabelle saw Butch up close for the first time. He darted away after she started crying and sqeezing me as tight as she could.

Being a social butterfly.
Gotta love that intense face full of yummy food! :)
