Sugar and Spice and All Things Nice

Yikes, there is frost on the ground this morning!

Things have been quite busy around here to say the least. :) Our house has turned into a manufacturing and distribution centre all in one.

Eric was a huge help for me on Monday. I couldn’t have done it without him! We had a brief moment where we wanted to strangle each other, but luckily that passed. Ahhh husbands…can’t live with ’em…can’t live without ’em ;)

What are little boys made of?

Frogs and snails

And puppy-dogs’ tails,

That’s what little boys are made of.
What are little girls made of?
 

Sugar and spice

And all things nice,

That’s what little girls are made of.  ;)

I still believe that to this day!

Tuesday was my big shipping day. Oh Lord help me.

I shipped out over 50 orders! It took me from 9am-8pm and I broke for maybe 20 minutes all day long. I was exhausted to say the least. It sure felt good to get so many sent out not long after opening the cart up.

As part of Caitlin’s Operation Beautiful challenge, I decided to include Operation Beautiful notes in my packages today! It was so much fun and put a big smile on my face. :)

I hope you guys enjoy them and keep spreading the love where you live!

Sketchie has been a great employee, helping out as always!

He’s such a cutie. :) He keeps me company. We’re BFFs. I wake him up and give him a treat every now and then.

Moving on to today!

Breakfast this morning was delicious…

I had 3 Vegan Spiced Pumpkin Pie Glo Bites

I whipped up another batch this morning because I am officially obsessed with these. I feel like I am eating these delicious mini pumpkin pies for breakfast! Only much healthier.

We just got our first snowfall here in Wisconsin on Monday. It’s crazy how cold it is… I’m still hanging on to summer-like weather! ;)

Lovely green smoothie Angela! Definitely perfect for the season.

Any chance of shipping to Melbourne, Australia :)

And, with regard to your Pumpkin Pie Glo Bites, can I substitute fresh pumpkin for canned? In what quantities? I’ve never seen canned pumpkin before, and I’d love to try these little gems.

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) October 15, 2009 at 10:53 am

Yes you can probably substitute fresh with a 1:1 ratio! :)

Seems a bit sexist to me! ;-)
