Pig Out In the Park

Tonight, Mike and I went to a huge annual foodie festival they have in downtown Spokane called “Pig Out In The Park”. It’s a 6 day festival filled with food, music and vendors. There are three stages set up with a number of bands performing throughout the week, along with nearly 50 food vendors set up in tents, trucks or carts. The place was jam packed with people, but more importantly smells of all sorts of delicious food! There was deep fried whatever-you-could-think-of (twinkies, oreos, snickers bars, reeces peanut butter cups, cheesecake and more) ice cream, funnel cake, root beer floats and other normal fair type food– then there was the garlic truck (which smelled heavenly), bacon wrapped hot dogs, chocolate dipped cheesecake on a stick, elephant ears, gyros, several steakhouses, and so much more. There was so much food we decided we’re going to go back on Sunday for round 2. In the meantime, here are a few pics from the night:

I loved this food truck that looked like a log cabin!

Not the best picture, but I just loved all the cheesecakes on a stick all lined up!

What we ended up trying- homemade Italian sausage sandwiches. Let me tell you- it was amazing!

Crafts = Art

For those who don’t know me personally, I spent my high school and college years working at the greatest craft store ever with some of the greatest people ever. In 2007, the company went bankrupt and out of business. About a year later, a new store was finally set to go into the vacant space where the store was and the giant neon letters that spelled out “Rag Shop Fabric, Floral, Crafts” was coming down. I happened to be in the right place at the right time and took, I mean rescued the giant 20″ letters that spelled out Crafts. For the past 5 years they’ve been in storage, but now I have my own (huge!) sewing room and can hang them up. Unfortunately, with a bookshelf I put in there, I couldn’t fit the whole word “crafts” so I rearranged the letters to spell “art” and hung that up. I literally squealed when I was done hanging them- I was so excited to get them on display again!
