Wish Upon A Cure

25 Mar

Weekends like this make us proud to be students at Lebanon Valley College. Through our combined efforts, we raised over $43,000 to go to the American Cancer Society during Relay For Life! This event was held on campus from 4pm to 4am. Throughout the night there were of TONS different activities students could get involved with. This years theme was Disney Princesses with a matching slogan, “Wish upon a cure”. For us, not a day goes by that we don’t wish a cure to cancer will be found. I’m sure we are not alone in this feeling. Until the day comes, we will continue to relay and walk for those who no longer can.

Some of the sisters and us at Relay! Our shirts we made for the event turned out so good! Don’t you think?

Along with Relay for Life, this weekend hosted our mom’s birthday!! We didn’t spend the entire night at Relay so we were well rested for her birthday festivities. We love birthdays and we love celebrating other’s special day with them.
The best part about our Mom’s birthday weekend?!?! It happened to fall on Restaurant Week in Hershey! If you have never experienced restaurant week before in Hershey, PA you are missing out. All of the local restaurants have special deals where you can get a combined entree and dessert for a pre-determined price. Our favorite restaurant is Devon Seafood Grill, so of course it was unanimously voted upon. Reservations were a must and scheduled at least a month in advance. It was a hoppin’ place to be on Saturday night.
We had a five minute wait. Nothing too extreme.

They have SO many choices on their pre-determined Restaurant Week menu (click on the link if you are interested in what else they had to offer). We really wanted to try something new that we haven’t had before. For starters we got the baby greens salad with feta, toasted pine nuts, dried cherries, and a honey balsamic vinaigrette dressing on the side.

For our entree we both decided on the San Francisco Style Cioppino. The description: shrimp, scallops, muscles, clams, fresh fish, red-wine tomato sauce. Drizzled with fresh lemon at the table. It was out of this world good. It had a spicy kick to it. We both agreed we would order it again. We both always end up picking the same entree because we would get mad if one ours ended up being way better than the others. Such a twin thing!

Dessert was a shared piece of their carrot cake. We boxed up one of our servings for our parents to enjoy for breakfast the following morning. Delicious!

Such a wonderful evening spent with those we love.
Sunday was Mommy Pinning for Phi Sigma Sigma. Our mom can now officially wear our Greek letters! Here are all the moms and sisters in our sorority who got pinned! Such a special day to share with our mom. She was extra special because she got two roses instead of just one. We love you!

We would like to share the rest of our weekend through the eyes of our plates. We just went grocery shopping and restocked on some of our favorites and some new things we can’t wait to try including plain greek yogurt, a sun-dried tomato dressing, bulgar wheat with soy, avocados, luna bars, oat milk, cocoa-sprouted sunflower seeds, wheat berries, and dorset brand muesli. I’m sure some of these new finds will be featured in the upcoming weeks. Stay tuned and stay fabulous on this marvelous Monday morning. (Ignore the snow if it has happened to make it your way, it makes Mondays that much more bearable).

A warm and sweet breakfast
