Catching Up!

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on June 21, 2009



I am blogging this afternoon on the deck on this first glorious day of summer!!!! Isn’t wireless internet the BEST? Krista and I were chatting about it yesterday (she just got a new laptop) and we both admit we love not being glued to a desk all day!

I have gotten SO much accomplished so far today and I am feeling much more ‘in control’ of my busy schedule!

I finished going through the orders I have scheduled for Summer ‘09 so far. I have much more than I thought I did, which is great, but will require careful time management if I am to get all this done!

Today I worked on 16 Glo Bakery packages for an order tomorrow!


I also prepared Nicole’s package (who won the BBBC challenge) and got that ready to be shipped out!

I also went through all my emails, organized Green Monster emails, FAQ’s, orders, etc etc! It feels so good to have gone through most of them. I still have to catch up on emails while I was on vacation though and make sure I didn’t miss any…

I snacked on Mary’s Crackers while I prepped:


Eric mowed the lawn and did the trimming:


Sketchie watched from his blankie:


Then it was lunch time when hubby came in the house!

I had one of my colossal spinach salads!!!


A green tea from my MIL:IMG_3898  

In the salad:

  • 4-5 cups organic spinach
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 4 T hulled hemp seeds (my new obsession!)
  • 1 cup tomatoes
  • Kraft Balsamic Vinaigrette
  • Mary’s Crackers

In just 56 grams of hulled hemp seed there is almost 19 grams of protein!!!


I like Mary’s crackers in salads but the crackers poked my gums a few times, so I ate with caution! :D


Two leftover Veggie Cupcake Burgers!!


These burgers are SO good!

I used my Chocolate Peppy-mint Glo Bars for the ‘meat patty’ and it went so well with the cupcake flavours!!


This lunch was amazing!

I am revved up once again and ready to tackle the rest of the pile of work on my desk.

The Operation Beautiful note I put in my bathroom before bed last night:

Love that saying!

Not sure what is on the docket for my workout today…could be a run outside or I might just skip a workout all together. We shall see!

Sketchie says HEY OSG READERS!!!


He is obsessed with this packing foam that came in a shipment we received! Don’t worry we don’t let him eat it!

Have a lovely Father’s Day!

Sketchie is too cute for words!

I seriously love your cat, he’s so handsome! Did you have to get him from a breeder??


Angela (Oh She Glows) June 21, 2009 at 3:56 pm

Yup, he’s from a Breeder in Toronto on the Danforth :)


Lara (Thinspired) June 21, 2009 at 3:57 pm

Hey Ange,
I really like your notes today :) They hit home for some reason.
Also I wanted to tell you congratulations on all the success of your bakery lately. The little burgers are SO cute and it looks like you were really a hit at that event over the weekend! It is so incredibly to watch you make your dreams come true. I am really inspired.

Sketchie haha sooooo cute! My cat loves those foam things too. We have to keep an eye on her when she’s around them because otherwise she’ll completely devour them :O

Love the notes! We are worth it!


melissa June 21, 2009 at 5:01 pm

yeah for 16 orders! the salad looks awesome, maybe that’s what I will have for dinner. there is nothing better than avo, tomato and sundried tomato!

I love your notes to yourself in the bathroom!

I’ve been trying to be more aware of myself when I’m looking in the mirror or hopping on the scale. I’ve been doing it more so since my girls have been doing it too. :(

However nothing is more wonderful than a 3 year old yelling “I’m beautiful!”

Sketchie is so cute! I wish we had some gorgeous weather down here. . . muggy humid rain for days and days.

Thanks for that inspirational note…it’s funny how we don’t appreciate ourselves enough when we are young and now we work so hard to recapture that youth and vitality!
Love your blog!!

I just bought some hemp seeds and am dying to get using them because I never get enough protein! Will try throwing them in my salads, that looks so good!

By the way I made your peanut butter bars the other day and brought them to work and they were a HUGE hit! Two girls I worked with even asked for the recipe and plan on making them soon. I am going to try and bring some to my internship as well! Thank you!

That’s so great to hear!! ~A


Heather @ Health, Happiness, and Hope June 21, 2009 at 6:48 pm

Sounds like you got a lot accomplished today! And I’m so happy to hear that the orders are flowing in. You are going to make one sucessful, amazing baker Angela!

How in the world can you see that screen outside??? I’ve tried using my laptop outside, but I can never seem to get rid of that nasty glare! Totally need your advice on that one! :)


Well luck was on my side today because a cloud gave me a bit of shade….otherwise I can’t see the screen either!! ~A

Aww, Sketchie is so cute!


Jessica June 21, 2009 at 6:57 pm

aw Ange you look so beautiful in the post of your reflection and note! I know you’re looking down but I think it captures true beauty because you aren’t posing. :)

Your glorious first day of summer has been a sweltering unbearable heat here in Florida! geez, I got in my car yesterday and the temp said 97. And the pool is to the point where it isn’t quite refreshing anymore as it feels hotter than bath water! lol

Oh man that reminds me of when I used to live in FL!!!


Low June 21, 2009 at 7:17 pm

Sketchie is so cute!! I miss my cats (they had to live with Mom when I left for college).

Do the hemp seeds taste good?

Oh yea they do…they have a very light and buttery taste- like heaven! ~A

Hey Ange! I have a fashion topic for ya…I’m doing my Masters in School Psychology (University of Alberta) in the fall and have a feeling my lulu clothes aren’t gonna cut it to look professional in grad school. What type of clothes did you wear when you did your degree? Was it any different than what you wore to your undergrad classes?


Mia {runs and rests} June 21, 2009 at 8:00 pm

Awww, Sketchie is too cute!
Your windows and the view outside are lovely. All the greens must be so relaxing.
I especially loved that quote. We are totally worthy! :D Have a great day!


Alex June 21, 2009 at 8:03 pm

I am a couple posts late, but I saw that you have signed up for the 10 miler! Whoooohooo! Congrats- I am running it too and crossing my fingers that it won’t be too hot!
PS. Tried your skinny buns- l.o.v.e.d. them!


Rose June 22, 2009 at 3:34 pm
