The Furniture Hunt

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on March 28, 2009

Good afternoon!

We just got home after a loooong day out! We had a blast looking at furniture this morning. My Mother in Law is an Interior Designer so we get access to all of the ‘Closed to the Public’ Furniture showrooms.

It was our first time going today and it exceeded my expectations! The furniture was beautiful in most of the showrooms, very modern, excellent quality, and unique.

The best part is we can get most of the furniture at a huge discount (30-50%) so we will be savings tons of money. It is crazy how much they mark-up furniture!

Here are some highlights of the day:

The morning Green Monsters:


Mine had 4 cups of spinach, 1 cup Almond Breeze, 1/4 cup Soy Milk, 1 Tbsp flax.

My mom’s had 1 cup spinach, 1/2 large banana, 3/4 c. soy milk, 1 tbsp flax.

My mom said she is buying a blender when she gets back and going to make 1 green monster every day! I’m impressed :D

Here are some furniture highlights:

We liked this Wine Cabinet:


Nice cabinets:

We loved this couch, except we would get a chaise lounger on the end of the sofa:


We like the chaise below, but in the couch above (brown). We got a quote written up on the above couch + chaise + a couple of matching chairs. It is probably going to be too expensive, but a gal can dream right?!


This is for my dad :D He is a huge Habs fan! bahaha.


I loved this country kitchen dining table and cabinet:


We also loved this bedroom set + 4 poster bed:


Another cabinet I liked:

It was fun, but we still have a lot more looking to do before we COMMIT!

Lunch was quick and simple on our way to visit relatives.

Subway of course!

I got a footlong Veggie on whole wheat. I don’t find 6” veggies last very long in MA BELLY, so I usually get a footer. I get most veggies, no cheese, toasted, with regular mustard and black pepper! Delicious.

I had the water to go with it.

We had a great visit with my relatives this afternoon! They are coming down to see our house in April and I am excited for that. :)

I would post a picture, but I have a strict no-kids policy on my blog. You won’t see any lil munchkins on here…for their safety of course.

Now we are going to freshen up and head out to dinner. We are going to a nice Italian Restaurant tonight and I am going to probably get another thin crust veggie, no cheese, pizza. My last one was so good, I only hope this one is too! :)

BBBC Challenge:

  • Yes, there is still time to sign up! I will be accepting entries all weekend. :) Email me [email protected]. You do not need to send me your photos until the end (if this is what you are doing!)
  • You can participate without taking any pictures or measurements!
  • I will be creating a new page strictly for the Bikini Boot Camp! I will post each day’s challenge and any related info. :)

See you tonight for a recap of the fun!

wow, so much beautiful furniture!

Beautiful furniture! I am sure you will co-ordinate everything beautifully. After your Mom made an attempt yesterday, I shared the recipe with my Mom too and she being a health food enthusiast, tried and loved it.

I’d have so much fun looking at furniture like that!

Wow, gorgeous furniture! I especially love the sectional couch!


Andrea March 28, 2009 at 7:25 pm

Hi Angela. I very much admire your website and your commitment to healthy eating and living. One thought: I noticed the two sofas you posted are leather. Given your almost-vegan eating and your dedication to being environmentally friendly, would you consider a more sustainable option?


Lara March 28, 2009 at 8:22 pm

Love the 4 poster bed! And I must add that you have gorgous hair. How do you keep it so shiny? Is it the green monsters? :)


Jess March 28, 2009 at 8:27 pm

Look at all that gorgeous furniture. You got some tough decisions to make! Have a great night and that’s awesome about your mom’s new love of the green monster. Tehe, have fun with the Italian food!

That furniture looks lovely! Can’t wait to see the finished room renovations :-)


Krista March 28, 2009 at 9:30 pm

WOW…gorgeous furniture!! Sounds like a fun day!

I always get a veggie sub at Subway, too…I like the sweet onion sauce on mine!!

Off to do my squats and lunges!!

Way to rock the foot long! Yum! I love all the furniture! too fun. Cheers to green monsters too:)


Claudia March 29, 2009 at 3:09 am

The furniture is not exactly what I would buy, because to me it looks too “americanish”, but you have definitly your own style!

I really really like your blog, yesterday was a super bad day, eating wise and everything for me, like really depressing, but coming to your site I always feel this positive joyful spirit. thank you, please keep doing your thing!


Sarah March 29, 2009 at 8:26 am

Hi Angela,

my question is not really related to your post, but I was windering what you thought about the health benefits of wheatgrass, have you ever thought of adding it to your green monsters? It’s supposed to be quite good for you, but I haven’t found any real scientific data supporting this claim yet. What are your thoughts?




Diana March 29, 2009 at 9:10 am

Wow! I love almost everything you took pictures of! Beautiful furniture! I work in the design field so I’m excited to see what you end up getting!


Christy March 29, 2009 at 9:13 am

I love that furniture. It is really nice. Hopefully you will end up with some of it in your house. Last year the husband and I saved up and got a really nice grown up table and leather chairs for our dining room. We felt so mature :-)
