Interview Day and Goodies in the Mail

Hi everyone!  Have you all had a good Thursday? I hope so!!

It’s been another busy one around here. First off, I went to school, as usual. I came home on my lunch hour to grab a quick bite to eat and get changed into dress clothes because this afternoon was Interview Day. I am doing a business/intern program at school next year where you go and work in the afternoon. It counts as credits towards school, so I will still be perfectly on track to graduate my senior year. The people who run this program have the connections to get you a job that you will really like…and help you find a job in an area you are interested in. This is exciting for me because every day next year, I will be done at school at 12:00! This way, I can go to school, have a job, AND actually have a life! All the businesses came to us and we met in the cafeteria to do the interviewing. I had 4 interviews total…a couple banks and other local retailers. But there are much more options that I will have to choose from…this was kind of a practice run. I feel like it really helped me a lot though!

Speaking of jobs, I called the fitness center that I applied at last week, on the quest of looking for a small summer time job, and they said they should be starting the interviewing process soon…I guess there is a lot of people wanting to work there? Noooo! Keep your fingers crossed for me!

Now I’m sure you all would like to see what I got in the mail today, right?!

Here is what I came home to tonight: Not one, but 2 PACKAGES!

DSC00838Thanks to my paint tool, I concealed our identities, haha :)

I was like a kid on Christmas morning! After seeing it over the blogworld for the last couple weeks, I decided to order some Chia Seeds!



That’s right, 3 pounds of pure Chia. Ahhhh!

I ordered from: The service and shipping was great. They also have some other cool raw stuff that I’d love to try sometime! You will definitely be seeing many Chia-licious foods in the near future.

The other package was from my very sweet friend, Megan! This is the package I have been dreaming about all week. Megan and I did a bar trade and here is what I ended up with:


Wowza!! So much delicious-ness! I can’t wait to enjoy all of it! Thank you so much, Meg!!!

Now, lets rewind a bit to breakfast:


A breakfast cookie containing:

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 scoop of plain protein powder
  • 1/2 mashed banana
  • lots of cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp of unsweetened chocolate Almond Breeze
  • natural peanut butter spread on top (Mighty Maple on one side, Kroger natural on the other)

This never fails me.

And here is what I threw together when I came home on my lunch break: a toasted whole wheat bagel half topped with goat cheese, turkey, and turkey pepperoni, chickpeas, overnight slaw, and carrots.


A random mix of foods, I must say. But it satisfied me!

Once I got done with my afternoon of businesses drilling me with hard questions chatting with the lovely interviewers, I came home and had a snack:


A cereal mixture of Kashi Go Lean and Kashi Honey Sunshine with unsweetened vanilla almond milk and frozen blueberries. You’ll MUST try putting frozen blueberries in your cereal and then topping it with your milk of choice. It is SO yummy! The milk freezes around the blueberries…it’s pretty nifty, hehe!

Then I headed to the salon, my current job. I am just all about jobs lately, it seems!

Dinner was leftovers, but I still took a pic :)


Baked porkchop with green beans and a salad mix.

For dessert, I was, as usual, wanting some yogurt…preferably greek! But as it turns out, I finished off the last of the greek yogurt last night. Major sad face :( BUT I did find this in the fridge and decided to give it a try. 


The flavor was White Chocolate Raspberry. I thought it was pretty good. It packed 3 grams of fiber and 6 grams of protein for 100 cals. Not bad…but not greek yogurt ;) This would not be an everyday thing for me mainly because of the artificial sweetener in it. I try to limit my intake of that, and stick to natural sources like fruits.

Whew! I am now going to go watch Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice with my sister! But here is a giveaway reminder before I go:

Daily Dulcie is having an awesome giveaway for Holey Donuts! Check it out. :)
