A Long Weekend Begins

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

Happy Friday night and long Civic holiday weekend in Canada!

I hope you are one of the lucky ones that gets Monday off here in Canada. Unfortunately, Civic holiday is NOT a stat. holiday which is annoying given that the point of the holiday is to "not work". Hrmph! Do you get civic Monday off work?


I’ve been in the kitchen most of the day baking up Glo Bars. You guys should see how fast I am with the new hot sealer!!! The process goes so much more quickly now.

Look at that seal. What a beaut.



Thanks to everyone for entering the Amazing Prize contest this morning!

Sadly, there can only be one lucky winner…


Congrats to Hayley H!!!

I really, really, really loved your letters to yourself. I have gone through so many of the same issues with food and body image, and what you wrote really hit home with me and even made me shed a few tears behind my computer screen. Thank you for being so honest and open about everything on your blog- it is truly inspiring!

Thank you to EVERYONE for making the Summer Glow Boot Camp such a huge success!

This weekend’s assignment: Rest, relax, and pat yourself on the back! You did great! :)

Tonight, I am celebrating the end of the SGBC (in a good way of course! haha) and exactly 9 months of blogging. Cheers to that! I think I am going to use up the rest of my homemade apricot coconut sorbet to make some kind of margarita.

Tomorrow is Leah’s stagette and I have a few things to prepare before I leave around 11:30 in the morning. My car is already brimming with bags and things to bring!!! :)

Flashback to my stagette last July 2008:


Dressed up…


And the rest of the pictures are way too embarrassing to post! ;)

Have you been to a stagette/bachelorette party before? Any funny stories to share?

I got a stripper for my sister Kristi’s stagette 5 years ago. It was a little sister’s BEST revenge.

Let me just say this: The guy who showed up was NOT the same guy as I selected in the picture online!!!! Poor Kristi!!!!! It was certainly a wonderful payback. ;)


You can check out my workout today on my run page! Tomorrow is an off day and Sunday Leah and I have planned a run together along the water. Let’s hope we’re not too hungover to go! ;)


Enjoy your night!

My bachelorette involved tequila shots taken through those styrofoam pool noodles. I don’t know why. The pictures are hysterical though. :)

Congrats to Haley!!

I get the Civic Holiday but only because I work at a university and it’s officially closed that day. Unfortunately most of my friends have to work :(

Have fun on your run tomorrow! It looks like the weather will be beautiful (finally!!)

Sounds like a fun weekend ahead of you! Have a great time! :)

And totally jealous of Canadians right now. I think the US should totally adopt this holiday… immediately. ;)

The most memorable bachelorette party I have attended was for, Morgan, a good friend from high school. I was a bridesmaid and we were not yet of drinking age. So, her mom and aunts threw her a pre-party at her apartment and then all of us went to the bar. Morgan had a young daughter and was not used to consuming high amounts of alcohol. So, after drinking at her apartment with the rest of the wedding party and family, she became VERY ill on the way to the bar. Her mom took her back to the apartment to sleep it off. Then, rather than stay and take care of her daughter, Morgan’s mom went to the bar with Morgan’s aunt and some of the other bridesmaids!
