Happy Saturday everyone! Anders and I had quite an eventful Friday. For his birthday back in February I bought him concert tickets to the Dierks Bentley and Miranda Lambert Locked and Reloaded Tour in Hershey, PA. Hershey is about two hours away from school so we decided to make a day of it and make some pit stops along the way.
Our first stop: Shady Maple Smorgasbord in the heart of Amish country of East Earl, PA. Anyone who has been there can tell you, it is amazing. Whatever you are hungry for, they have it, and more. There is a huge buffet, two dessert bars, and 4 grill stations. It is a food overload to say the least.
There should be a photo of plate #2 here, but I ate it before I remembered to take a picture. Oops.
We had to take a little bit of a break after this, because we were stuffed. But were we going to stop there? Nah! Who knows when we will come back here? And it is all so good!
After another little break, I decided to go for dessert #2. I could seriously eat an entire bowl of that whipped cream (and I don’t even really like whipped cream). I decided to have a little pie with it again.
When it was all said and done, you pretty much had to roll the two of us out of that place. I would probably ballpark what we ate at somewhere around 2000-3000 calories each. I told you it was a binge. But it was delicious and worth every bit.
After we made it out of Shady Maple, we decided we should do some walking around. So we stopped by the outlets in Lancaster. I picked up some warm running gear for Sunday’s 10k because it is only supposed to be in the 40s, Brrrrr.
After the outlets we were on our way to the Giant Center in Hershey. As we were driving, the radio started beeping with the emergency tone: severe thunderstorm warnings all around. Lucky for us, we were driving right into them. Just as we got into Hershey, it starting pouring and the wind was whipping. Needless to say, the walk from the parking lot to the concert was a wet one. But totally worth it!
All in all, it was a very fun day. It wasn’t my healthiest eating day, but one day doesn’t kill you. It was our first country concert experience and it certainly didn’t disappoint!
