Ellensburg or bust

Had to make a quick trip to Ellensburg last weekend to drop off students from Poland at Washington Business Week (that’s another story). Can’t remember the last time or if ever I spent any time there. While this was a quick trip I did manage to do some sight-seeing! The town is home to several establishments that look like they are out of the 50s and still thriving. The backroads with the beautiful light and rolling hills made for an enjoyable ride. Reminded me of my days in New Mexico, cowboy hats, pickup trucks and coca cola.

Skittles goes for $1200 at Party of the Century!

And I don’t mean a bag of skittles! Skittles, a sweet 8 week old purebred Shih Tzu puppy  found a new loving home at the Holy Rosary School Heart Auction this past Saturday.  Among other items of great interest was the “Girls Night Out at Palisades,” and a signed Pearl Jam poster for $1800.  It was a great evening of fun and high bidding – totaling over $220,000! Congratulations.

Martini’s, cigars, wild glasses anyone? View couples photos here!

Carnival de FCC – Come Celebrate

Carnival de FCC – Come Celebrate

March 24th was the 25th Annual Auction and Dinner for the Fauntleroy Children’s Center that benefits the children, families and staff of FCC.  Many local celebrities were in attendance including Bob Watt, Auctioneer; King TV’s Jim Dever and former mayor Greg Nickels.

The “Carnival” theme was exciting with brightly colored banners and stilt walkers! But I think my favorite part is the Dessert Dash! Lots of money is raised as tables pool their monies to try and get their favorite desserts.  Early on you could find guests studying the table and eyeing their first choice. No one was disappointed.  I think this cake says it best:
