Weekend Shots [2/3/14]

3 Feb

Somehow it is already February. We are not quite sure how that happened but there is no complaining about it in this household. The start of February means we are one month closer to spring, warmer weather, and running season! These past few weeks have been so cold in Pennsylvania that we have not been able to get an outside run in at all! We know the treadmill is always an option but let’s be honest, nothing compares to running outside. Whose with us?

This past week was jam-packed for us! It was formal rush for our sorority and there were lots of late nights involved. Late nights and early mornings make for some sleepy sisters. We somehow managed to make it through the week with lots of coffee and finally caught up on some much needed sleep this weekend. Since we missed out on a WIAW post last week here are some snapshots from our past week and weekend. We hope you enjoy!

We ended the weekend with a lazy Sunday morning breakfast for two. Happy Monday!

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!

Getting Back Into Blogging

21 Oct

marvel

Sometimes months accidentally fly by. You look at the calendar and it’s August and then all of a sudden the next time you look at the calendar it’s almost the end of October. We apologize. We’re guilty of being caught up in the past few crazy months both of us have been having. We’ve decided that we should probably get back into blogging for our sake and our readers sake. We both miss our weekly posts. Life just isn’t the same without what we ate wednesday posts.

So it’s Monday and we decided why not make this marvelous  Monday morning even more marvelous with a blog post. Here’s what we’ve been up too lately. It’s been a pretty exciting past couple of weeks!

Kayla is still halfway across the world in Australia but her time there is quickly coming to an end. She’ll be home in just 34 short days. This week is her last week of classes for the semester. We cannot believe how fast time is flying by. On Saturday evening she leaves for Bali, Indonesia for a week. After Bali, her schedule is filled with studying and passing three exams, a weekend trip to Sydney, a day on the Great Ocean Road, packing, and a 22 hour journey home.

Kayla’s spent the past few weeks holding koalas

snorkeling and sailing the Great Barrier Reef

Scuba Diving

and jumping out of planes

Devon just returned from a four day trip to Utah for her best friends wedding.

Devon & Tori

She’s also been busy overseeing the kitchen renovation

And making everyone insanely jealous with all her beautiful food pictures on instagram.

But that’s nothing new. We hope you forgive us for going MIA the past few weeks. Here’s to a fabulous twin reunion in 34 short days with lots and lots of cooking and eating in the following weeks. We know Kayla’s pretty excited to come home to a new, beautiful, and fully stocked kitchen and pantry. Dorm life can get pretty old, fast.

What are you excited for in the upcoming weeks?
