Making Strides Against Breast Cancer

Happy Friday!!

Before I tell you about the amazing pizza I had yesterday, I want to announce that I am raising money for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.

I won’t be able to participate in the walk in October because it’s two days after my surgery. I’d still really like to raise money for the cause. I am thinking of hosting a Blog Bake Sale like Tina did a couple weeks ago. If you’re interested in donating baked goods, let me know in the comment section of this post. Also feel free to leave any advice you have for other forms of fundraising.

This cause is REALLY important to me because although I haven’t actually been diagnosed with breast cancer, I’m still going through something that no woman my age should have to worry about.

I need to raise at least $20 by Monday, and my goal is $2,500 by the second week of October. Any donation you can make will be greatly appreciated!


Now, on to pizza!

Yesterday, Emily, Alicia and I followed in Jen’s footsteps and went to Smith’s Tavern in Voorheesville for this week’s lunch date.


Alicia and I had never been there before, but Emily had, and she and Jen promised that we wouldn’t be disappointed. 


They were right.

I don’t eat pizza very often, and when I do, I either go big or go home.


In this case, I went big.

I ordered The Villager sans the sausage and mushrooms, and added tomatoes. 


Oh my yum. I could only manage two slices but I was definitely on the verge of falling into a pizza coma by the time we left.

If you live in the area, you’ve got to try this pizza place! The crust was thick and doughy, the cheese, gooey, and the sauce, full of flavor. Basically, it’s everything that a good pizza should be (though, I normally like thin crust). Definitely worth the splurge!

In fact, I may have a leftover slice right now…

Have a great night! <3

Going apple picking with a bunch of local bloggers tomorrow morning! Can’t wait!!!
