What’s In My Fridge: Part 4 & Honeymoon Pictures

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on January 7, 2009

Hey everyone. :)

Our power went out tonight…hopefully it is back on for good now!

I am curious, what is your favourite alcoholic drink?

I love Wolf Blass Yellow Label Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as most light beers.

Back in university I used to drink tons of coolers, and no doubt those sugary monsters contributed to my weight gain! I hate the taste of most coolers now. Too much sugar, blech! I also used to drink a lot of Screwdrivers too. Again more sugar. One screwdriver has about 300 calories!

Here I am in 2005/2006 (in university)…about 15-20 pounds heavier than I am now:


Then in university I switched to mixing Crystal Light with vodka…and even worse idea! I think I consumed more Aspertame that any human being should ever consume. I am lucky to be alive! lol.

I feel so much better since cutting out artificial sweeteners. Now it is just sugar in moderation thank-you-very-much. :D


I don’t know what it is, but I am feeling very blah tonight! I think I have a small case of the winter blahs today. very lethargic (despite sleeping in until 9:00am!). This calls for some happy pictures.

Happy pictures always improve my mood! :)

Tonight’s happy pictures are going to feature more honeymoon pictures. Looking at these pictures always puts a big smile on my face!

Eric and I took some awesome shots with his Canon SLR 30D Camera. It takes fabulous pictures.

What is your favourite vacation destination?

Mine is Capri, Italy. Pure tropical gorgeousness.


Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections, but instantly set about remedying them – every day begin the task anew.

Back to the grind tomorrow… Thank God it is only a 2 day workweek!

Going to watch the People’s Choice Awards then bed. Night! :)

look at those calves :D! Gorgeous pics I want to go to Europe SO badly, I’ve been to Spain twice but I’m going back ASAP! Costa Rica is my fave I think. Haha, I am so guilty of drinking whatever I had in front of me in college- GROSS! Now i stick to wine, michelob ultra/miller lite, or vodka soda lime’s when I go out! Much better on the waistline :D

Aruba is my favorite place so far. Your trip looks like my dream vacation! I have wanted to go to Turkey since I saw my dad’s pictures when I was a kid. I was fascinated by the mosques!

I just your picture posts! I have severe winter blahs too. I feel for you. The bright sunny pics help I think.

I have been to many countries and Kenya is by far my favorite. It is the most amazing and most heart breaking. I think if I believed in past lives I must have lived in Africa in one of them. I left my heart there.

**Favorite destination = Venice, Italy

Hope your power stays on!!

Angela your posts have been so AMAZING and helpful over the last few days! Not that they aren’t always, but man, you out do yourself.

I always love love love the photos. I have to say, I love capri, but I prefer Positano and Ischia for their ever so slightly less touristy atmosphere. Although you can not go wrong on the Almafi coast. My brother jokes Ischia is just like Capri, only with longer pants.

I totally relate to the winter blues you’re feeling. It has been raining and dark all week. Ugh, so depressing! I guess that’s why I’ve been thinking about planning my summer vacation (I’m a teacher). I was doing some research online tonight, which was very overwhelming. I was thinking if I had a blog I’d ask where everyone’s favorite vacation was…so you read my mind! Thanks for asking and I hope a lot of people respond to your question. I need some good ideas. I’ve heard Canada is nice in the summer! ;-)

Amazingly enough, I didn’t drink at all in college. I grew up in a family that only drank wine at dinner, so I thought it was strange that people would drink w/out a full meal — or just drink to get drunk.

Now, I have wine with dinner or out for happy hour, and sometime beer). . . and each summer my husband and I host a frozen margarita party where everyone drinks drinks WAY too much!! ;)

What beautiful photos. I like seeing all the food in the cupboards. Speaking of such, I think it is time a clean mine out!

mmmm, honeymoon pics. I’m still leafing through mine on a daily basis. There were tons of stray dogs and cats in Thailand too. But I was never brave enought to pet or feed one. Rabies is ramapant in Thailand, so I thought I’d better not.

Also, you’re calf muscles look amazing in the picture where you’re peaking out the window!!!

I’ve recently discovered Pear Cider which I think is my new favorite drink. And then there’s always wine, preferably red.

Greece looks breathtaking, I would love to go there one day. Greece, Spain and Hawaii are probably the 3 places I’d love to go but as of yet I’ve only ever been around Canada and to Philadelphia & NEw Jersey..not exactly vacation destinations :D

Beautiful honeymoon pics! We went to Costa Rica, which I LOVED! But I’m dying to do a Mediterranean trip…pretty much exactly what you did! My hubb and I are talking about going to either Spain or Italy for our 5th Anniversary (2011) or both if we can swing it. Thanks for sharing!

Mmmm Capri, Italy! That sounds fabulous! I’ve never been (yet) but after watching a food network special, I think I’m in love.

Beautiful honeymoon pics! You before and after pics are so inspiring. I’m losing weight right now, and it’s nice to see someone on the other side =)

Thanks for sharing!
