Thank you all SO much for your advice! I ended up going with hair down, nude hose, a pastel cami and a semi-chunky necklace. It actually looked really good. I *felt* really good. It was just the right amount of "personality". Not sure how the interview went - I'm always my worst critic.

(oh, for those that said to lose the white collared shirt, the whole thing is actually a dress, with the shirt and the skirt attached so unfortunately that wasn't an option! Otherwise that's exactly what I would have done)

In other news, my order from Amazon came in yesterday, so today was my first day trying chia seeds! They are fun! They added a fun crunch to my yogurt and I added them to my hummus for dinner just....because! 2 tbsp is 70 calories and if you read up on the benefits....wowza. Good stuff there. So they add a fun crunch and apparently do wonders for your body?! HOLLER. Gonna keep up the usage and see how it goes! For those of you that are already on the chia seed bandwagon, how much do you usually eat in a day? I've seen recommendations anywhere from 1-4 tbsp.

And now I'm going to crawl into bed and get a good long night's sleep. Sweet sassy molassy, I am so happy tomorrow is Friday.


*Strawberry Chobani with 1 tbsp chia seeds mixed in
*egg sandwich: multi-grain arnold’s thin, 2 slices avocado, little bit of ketchup, and ½ cup egg subst.


*salad from Mixt Greens: The “Siam”: mixed greens, green papaya, jicama, mango, cucumber, red pepper, fresh herbs, spicy peanuts, marinated tofu and a thai lemongrass vinaigrette. SO GOOOOOD!


*1/2 a tandoori naan dipped in red pepper hummus
*sandwich: tandoori naan with a veggie masala patty with red pepper hummus
*steaz black cherry sparkling green tea

I've seen your vlogs.. I *know* you have personality, and I am dead sure that it shines through in your interviews!

I bet you looked fabulous. No diggity, No doubt!

As for the Chia seeds, I typically have one scoop (it came with a scoop, no clue the size, but one scoop is 80 calories, so.. yah) Anyway, I have one of them scoops a day in the morning in my oats or smoothie! LOVE them!

So I just have to tell you I usually groan when I see your puntastic titles for your posts. Today's however, I thought was really good!

Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge fan of groaners.

For instance, have you heard of those new corduroy pillows? They're making headlines.

Still haven't tried the Chia Seeds. Need to get on the bandwagon I guess. I have however tried Chobani it.

Hi Laura! I've been using chia seeds for 5 weeks or so. I usually use 1 tsp at a time - in a smoothie, in a soup/chili, over a salad (I imagine they're poppy seeds), in oatmeal, pretty much over anything! Now that I'm use to them I think I'll start increasing it to 1.5 or 2 tsp at a time. I think they're best in things where they disappear (smoothies, warm dishes) although after 5 weeks I don't really even notice them on my food anymore. Hope you hear good news about your interview! ~ Angie
