Weekend Shots [1/27/14]

27 Jan

Happy Monday everyone! We spent this past weekend in Virginia at a leadership conference for Phi Sigma Sigma. Both of us are on executive board for our sororities’ chapter at Lebanon Valley College so we spent the weekend soaking up lots of great ideas and leadership skills to bring back to the rest of our sisters.

Road tripping with 4 of our other sorority sisters was such a fun way to spend the weekend! We were not sure what to expect food wise because we had no control over our meals for the weekend at the conference. We made sure to pack tons of healthy snacks including fresh fruit, granola bars, and a homemade loaf of 100% honey whole wheat bread.

Here are some snapshots from our weekend, enjoy!

Before getting to the hotel on Friday evening we stopped to grab chipotle to go for dinner. Best way to start off the weekend. We got huge salads with their newest menu item, Sofritas! It’s tofu infused with spicy flavors! Has else anyone ever tried this new menu item before?

The breakfast selection was rough despite the abundance of bananas and apples. They only had pastries and plain mini regular bagels. Good thing we brought homemade bread and peanut butter to fill in the gaps at breakfast.

The lunch spread on Saturday was pretty decent thanks to a buffet included fresh fruit and a make your own sandwich bar. We made friends with the servers who brought us our own plate of fruit!

There were water stations all over the hotel for the conference weekend. We also tried orange infused water for the first time, amazing. Definitely planning to recreate something like this at home!

The hotel was freezing in the lobby, so we huddled together to keep warm in between sessions.

It is absolutely wonderful to be sisters and executive board members. We love being able to both hold a leadership position in a Phi Sigma Sigma!

Saturday night was a Monte Carlo themed dinner and auction event for the Phi Sigma Foundation. There was bingo, auctions, t-shirt bidding, a photo booth, and more! We had so much fun! Devon even won a free t-shirt during bingo!

Here’s all of our sisters before dinner! We were always 10-15 minutes early thanks to our hatred of being late. We always got excellent seats at the sessions and meals. Being on time has its perks.

Dinner Saturday night started with a mixed greens salad, and ended with the main course that involved chicken, asparagus, carrots, mashed red potatoes, and sun-dried tomatoes. Not bad at all!

After the conference ended on Sunday around noon, we map quested the local town to find a Panera close by! We quickly enjoyed a chicken hummus bowl off of their hidden menu (which is officially not hidden anymore) with a side of wheat baguette. The bread does not come with the salad, but it is totally worth it anyways.

After getting home late in the afternoon Sunday, we had only a few minutes to spare before we headed to campus for our sorority meeting! It was such a busy weekend, and we decided that school work just was not going to get completed until Monday. Thankfully, we both have an 8am and then a huge gap in our schedules for homework and playing catchup.

Before bed, we finished working on important things on our to-do lists and saved a little time for relaxation! We are planning on attending our 5:40 AM pump class tomorrow, so knew we needed to head to bed pretty early. 10:30 and our lights are out!

Happy Monday!

    I already said this, but you ladies look fabulous! And a weekend is always good when Chipotle is involved.
