About

Hi!  I’m Candice!  Welcome to my blog, and thanks for stopping by. I am a 26 year-old high school English teacher by day, which keeps me pretty busy.  When I’m not working on school projects, you’ll find me spending as much time as I can with my husband, Jon, who also happens to be my number one fan and takes care of the “behind the scenes” aspects of ChiaSeedMe.  I love eating clean, cooking up new clean recipes, exercising, fixing up our house, playing with Olive (our yorkie) and blogging of course!  I started this blog because I am passionate about healthy living and want to share my experiences in hope of inspiring someone else to improve their health and life.  Also, I just love meeting other people through the blog world!  I’d love to hear from you – so drop me a line in the comments or hit up my contact page!

more to come soon:)…

    Hi Candice! Thanks for your comments on my blog 🙂 Your blog is gorgeous! I just love the layout!
    Confession: I haven’t actually tried chia seeds yet! The only thing I’ve had them in was a homemade granola, but I don’t feel I’ve fully had the chia experience yet! 😉

    Hi Candice! I saw one of your comments on another blog about your faith and wanted to check out your corner of the internet.

    Your and your hubby are such a cute couple and Olive is a doll. You know I’ve never tried chia seeds either. 🙂 Very cool you got to live in Thailand. I’ve never been there but it’s on my list…almost everywhere is on my list though! Anyway just wanted to say hi.

    BTW I noticed you read Rockstar Diaries. I look at that blog everyday b/c they are just so dang cute and hip. 😉 I like to pretend I’m young and carefree again when I read it. Ha!!

    Beautiful blog!

    Just wanted to drop a note and say “hi”. I’ve been blogroll surfing and found you via Oh She Glows. The first thing that grabbed my attention was your blog title. I’m so curious about these chia seeds that keep popping up on blogs I’m perusing. Secondly I saw you ran in the OKC marathon which rocks b/c I’m an Okie living in the OKC metro area. It’s not too often that I find a random Oklahoman blogger 🙂 I look forward to scouting out more of your blog!

      Hi Amber! Thanks for stopping by and droppin’ a note to say hi! I totally know what you mean about never finding Oklahoma bloggers. I wish there were more of us!

      And about the chia seeds…stay tuned because there just might be a chance for you to try some soon;)

    Hi Candace,

    I am in Thailand and was online looking for the translation of Chia seed into Thai, so i could go to the local market and buy some. I know they have it here, because 25 years ago when i was pregnant with my daughter here, and having some issues, someone told me to go to the market and buy these little black seeds and mix them with my yogurt. That was 25 years ago, and sadly, i just don’t remember what they are called. We have just recently returned from a stint in the U.S. where i fell in love with Chia seeds. I was wondering if, during your year in Thailand, if you used chia seeds…and if you happen to know what they are called in Thai 🙂

    Thanks,

    Rosemary

      Hi Rosemary – it is so fun for me to hear from you all the way from Thailand!

      Unfortunately, I did not even know about chia seeds when I lived in Thailand. I totally understand the frustration of wanting something and knowing it’s out there but not being able to find it!

      My only thought is that there may not be a Thai word for “chia.” You might try using the word for seed and following it with chia – mel̆d chia. I’m sure you’ve probably already thought of that, but that’s my only idea.

      Also, you’ve probably already thought of this as well, but there are a couple of websites that ship chia seeds internationally. It is a bit pricey, but I just thought I’d mention it.

      Keep me updated, and let me know if you find them!

      • Rosemary July 14, 2010 at 7:53 am #

        Thanks for your reply, Candace. You’re right, I already tried to find the translation for Chia seed online….that is how i found your interesting blog 🙂 I’ll let you know if I find it locally, and what it’s called, just in case others want to know as well.

    I like your HLS blog button. U make that yourself?

    • candice July 26, 2010 at 12:16 am #

      haha, thanks! My husband made it. He’s a designer, so he can’t help himself on things like that:)

      Feel free to swipe it if you want!

    Hey! Fellow Oklahoman here! Just excited to see another healthy living blog in this area!

  12. sarah November 5, 2010 at 5:55 pm #

    Hi!!
    Im pretty new to the blogging world and just found your site!! I love what I see so far!
    curious…have you ever made a Chia Seed Pudding (since your name is ChiaSeedMe haha)
    I had an amazing one in NYC before I left but havent been able to recreate something as yummy since 😦
    Thanks a Bunch, and hope you’ll take a peek at my blog!

    • candice November 7, 2010 at 12:12 pm #

      Hi! Welcome to the blogging world! Thanks so much for stopping by and for dropping me a line:)

      Believe it or not, I have not made chia seed pudding. I’d say I’ve made almost every chia recipe other than that at some point or another. Must make some soon!

      Definitely looking forward to checkout out your space:)

      • sarah November 7, 2010 at 9:20 pm #

        Haha…I guess we will have to try out some recipes together and compare 🙂

      Thank you! And thanks for stopping by!

      Did your friends specifically go to Thailand with CCC? The Thailand Crusade world is pretty small, so I might know them!

      • lindsay November 15, 2010 at 11:26 am #

        I don’t think they went directly with CCC. But they did work for CCC in a lot of ways. The marshalls (mindy marshall)is a good friend of mine.
        Have a great day!

  16. Lara January 19, 2011 at 1:15 pm #

    Hi! JJ told me I should check out your site. I was just wondering where you got the button for Elyse’s pro site. I want one for my blog! Thanks, Lara

    • candice January 20, 2011 at 12:00 am #

      Hi Lara! Thanks so much for stopping by! I love JJ:) Elyse made the ad to put in my sidebar, and I’m sure if you asked her she’d be happy to hook you up. She’s always up for advertising opportunities! I’d love to check out your blog sometimes as well!

      • Lara January 20, 2011 at 11:09 am #

        That is so funny because I emailed Elyse yesterday, too, and she had no idea. 🙂

    Hi Candy-loo! Do you know how much I miss you? Yeah, it’s me…been just so crazy busy this entire school year, but I think of you and miss you regularly…just wanted you to know. I love you and hope life is treating you well!

    • candice January 30, 2011 at 10:59 pm #

      Hey friend! I miss you too! Of course I totally understand the busy times of the school year. I think about you all the time (literally so often) and I hope we can get together and catch up soon I need some Teri time!

    I love to read about how in love you are with your husband and how you want to spend every second with him, but now his job has taken that away from you.
    I too am a mom to (two) puppies and I love it! Your outlook is really inspiring 🙂

    • candice February 10, 2011 at 10:35 am #

      Thanks so much for your sweet note, Amy! I am really going to miss that guy…but it’s the challenges in life that keep it interesting!

      Aren’t puppies the best? 🙂
