Carpe Diem… PCB ’11.

Holy Cow time has flown!

First of all, Butler graduation took place a few weeks ago.

Here are the people who walked in the afternoon ceremony, pictured with Chris and Elissa as well. The ceremony was nice and snappy, the speaker was inspirational and the food at Willie’s afterwards was scrumptious as expected.


A few of the girls decided to decorate  our hats to showcase our personalities. They looked simply splendid, if I may say so myself 🙂 And then of course Summer has to be started off the right way- at the beach! After spending a few days at my boy’s house in Alabama, my roommates Sarah, Kallie, Sarah’s friend Emilia and I all headed to Panama City Beach for our 2nd annual beach extravaganza.

It was kinda amazing, and it’s okay to be jealous.

We even reped the Ag Ambassadors proudly when we met this cat.


He was convinced that traditionally produced beef and milk was bad for you. He had been misinformed by publications that the media releases. He was under the impression that only organically produced food was safe and healthy. GOOD THING we were on the beach and could let him know what’s up. We should go to the beach every weekend to straighten out more confused souls.


But seriously, situations like this are the perfect example of why it is so important to always be equipped with correct facts and figures.


Speaking of food….


We ate at all these AHH-MAAA-ZINGGG places, several of which served Certified Angus Beef. (Sorry, had to slip in that plug there). If you are ever in PCB consider these places. I pinky promise you won’t be disappointed.

  • “Salt Water Grill” is just another way to say “Some of the Bestest Food in the Whole Wide World”. And they had a huge aquarium.
  • After being voted a favorite last year, Captain Anderson’s was back by popular demand.
  • The Shrimp Boat. Now this was the place to be. It had real, live crabs swimming around below the dock in their natural habitat.
And then, over to our right (or left, depending on which side of the table you were sitting on), there was a man… with a KU shirt on. Now, while I would normally turn my nose up at such a sight, this time was an exception. Being the only Kansan in the South with three Georgia Peaches, when you find another fellow Kansan, it is critical you stick together……
So, I did what any sane red blooded American would do… I ran across the restaurant (no worries, it was a casual lunch establishment) and asked if I could get a picture with him. After all, he was the only sign of the Midwest I had seen all week.
We all told ourselves he was flattered.
Needless to say, we had a great time, enjoyed beautiful weather, ate delicious food, and even spoke on the ag industry’s behalf. I would say this vacay was a great success. 🙂
