Mimi's Cafe is Going Red for Heart Awareness Month!

February is Heart Awareness Month.  This year it hits a little closer to home for me than it ever has.  Several months ago I started having episodes of very high blood pressure.  For years I've been so proud of having low blood pressure (in spite of genetics that aren't good!).  I had been under a tremendous amount of stress, so when the blood pressure spikes occurred it scared me, tremendously because the dangers or heart disease are so immense.  Heart disease is the leading cause of death for women as well as men.

I'm in the process of making drastic changes in my life so celebrating Heart Awareness at this point in my life is particularly special!

You may have seen through the OCMomActivities Facebook fan page or through Twitter how last week Mimi's Cafe was offering a free cup of (the most amazingly yummy) tomato basil soup for anyone wearing red at the restaurant.  

Mimi's Restaurant is also celebrating Heart Awareness throughout February - for every $1 donation, guests can create a red heart-shaped tribute card on the red dress display inside the restaurant. For every $5 donation, guests will also receive a commemorative red dress lapel pin.  Guests who donate will also receive up to $35 in savings.  You can also go to the Mimi's Facebook page here for a fun app to show your support for women and heart awareness!

A friend and I headed down to Mimi's to show our support by wearing red last Friday and I particularly loved the red strawberries that looked like hearts!  I'm sure it was a coincidence, but it wasn't lost on me! (PS, the salad was sooooo delicious too!)

Note:  No Compensation was received for this post, but our lunches were covered to facilitate the writing of the post.
