Oh She Glows is in my apartment!  My blog world and my real world are colliding! πŸ™‚


Before Angela and Eric arrived, I cleaned the apartment and drank a Chocolate Cherry Bomb:


Which contained 1 cup almond milk, 1/2 banana, 15 cherries, Nesquik, and 2 cups raw spinach.


As well as 1/4 a melon:


And some pita chips with hummus:


Angela arrived in her lovely rental convertible.  She brought me Glo Bars and some other cute shirts (including a shirt that reads Ò€œEpicÒ€).  And yes, she actually says Ò€œEhÒ€ in real life!  I heart Canadians.


We went to a local restaurant called DexterÒ€ℒs for the meet-up.






New friends:


I had a beer and a glass of wine, plus this AMAZING veggie sandwich.  The sandwich includes grilled veggies, brie cheese, and sprouts of the best crusty bread.  The brie totally makes this sandwich.


I snagged a few fries from the Husband as well!


All in all, it was a very fun night.  We drove Angela and Eric around downtown quickly so they could see the Orlando Ò€œscene,Ò€ but it was too late out for everyone to get motivated to go out ourselves. 


IÒ€ℒm about to craaaash!  See you in the morning.

  • Sarah (Running to Slow Things Down) March 27, 2010, 8:01 am

    Fun, fun, FUN! πŸ˜€ I’m French-Canadian and always wish I would have picked up on using the word “eh.” I think you have to grow up saying it though, otherwise it just doesn’t come out naturally…haha. πŸ˜‰

    Gorgeous pics! πŸ˜€

  • Beth @ Beth's Journey to Thin March 27, 2010, 8:14 am

    My sister married a Canadian and uses the “eh?” and even though they’ve been married 6 years (!?) it still makes me laugh. Looks like a fun night!!

  • Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg March 27, 2010, 8:15 am

    Haha…I was really taken aback the first time I met a Canadian and he said “Eh.” I guess I thought it was just a rumor that they did that πŸ™‚

    Have so much fun with Angela!

    Dexter’s is one of my favorite restaurants in Orlando. We went there the night before we ran the Disney Princess last year! One question…what chocolate is in your chocolate cherry bomb?

  • Emily Eats and Exercises March 27, 2010, 12:44 pm
