Nick Offerman Talks Going “Full Bush”

I had the glorious pleasure of attending my first “official” stand-up comedian and I was so lucky that my “first” was thanks to Nick Offerman stopping in Ellensburg, Washington – of all places – to help round-out the 2017 Homecoming festivities.

I Came, I “Conned”, I Conquered

Not many people are aware of the grandeur of¬†effort put into the grand convention that is known as Comic Con.

What I learned while attending my first ever Comic Con in Seattle, WA was that people gathered to share stories, experiences, their phenomenal artistic abilities, and support the “nerdy” beauty within one another.

My first Con was not what I had originally believed it would be. I went on Thursday and Friday to Emerald City Comic Con and discovered that you will see and meet different people on different days.

Snowboarding: Falling 100 Times, Getting up 101 Times

I did it. I went up with a group of my girlfriends and rented my gear then hit the (bunny)slopes for the first time EVER (with no broken bones)! 12321649_1084526764931917_1190293088763544523_n.jpg

Granted, I went with a group of gals who had never snowboarded either so it was an incredibly hilarious experience but, without
a doubt, one of the greatest memories I’ve made in a long time. Thank you to the CWU Alumni Association for putting the event on!

I think the biggest lesson I learned while face planting into the iced over slopes at Mission Ridge Ski & Board Resort in Wenatchee, WA was that Continue reading
