Power Snack Contest Slideshow!

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on January 31, 2009

Hello everyone!

We had a lovely Birthday Dinner Party last night! Thankfully my Mother In Law put everything in the oven for me and got everything ready since I was the last one home from work. I walked in, and the house smelled amazing! :) I could get used to this, hehe. The dinner was a big hit!

However, after dinner I was so excited to finish my slideshow I couldn’t even think about posting my dinner party!

Although, little did I know I would have the most trouble with You Tube trying to get this thing posted!

After I finished the slideshow I spent a while trying to pick a song that fit.

Finally, I found one and then tried to upload the video. But little did I know that You Tube doesn’t support downloaded music on their videos anymore!!! I tried about 3 different songs and You Tube muted all of them. And let’s be honest- what is a slideshow of wonderful powersnacks without a fun song!?

So I got up early this morning around 7am, and decided that I would add the song via microphone.

And I thought forsure it was going to upload.

But is anything ever truly easy with technology??? NO!!!!

You Tube muted my uploaded microphone version too!!!!!! argh! :(

Edit: Now the song is working in the video, even though it said it was disabled and muted! I’m so confused. lol.

So without further ado, I present to you the slideshow of all of the wonderful, amazing, and delicious Power Snack entries for Contest #3!

Stayed tuned this weekend for the winner(s) of the Power Snack Contest #3!!! I think a couple runner up prizes are called for….

Watching the slide slow was a great way to start my Saturday!! I heard the music while watching the slideshow – and didn’t do anything fancy to make that happen. It worked for me! :) -Amanda (aka Wonder Woman power snack)

I definitely agree with Kath and marafaye – the banana facial in the bubble bath was SO creative! But then again, all the other snacks looked delicious too! Thanks for taking the time to put together that slideshow Angela!
Happy Saturday! :)

I loved this slideshow, you did such a great job! Love the song too:)

I just tried your green monster and will be posting pics and a review on my blog, which you coincidentally inspired me to start writing.

Everyone should at least give it a shot because it is just not that bad. Almost finished drinking it now and it may even be growing on me.

hehe, love the banana bath/facial :) so many great ideas!!


MaryBe January 31, 2009 at 5:30 pm

You did a fantastic job on the slideshow! Loved it! I did not hear music, so I sang Happy Birthday to Me really loud (No it’s not my birthday!)
They all looked great, I don’t envy you the task of choosing winners!
