After initally writing the title, I debated if I wanted to leave it or change it. Obviously leaving it won so please, to all you pervs out there. Let’s get say it and get it off our minds okay… “that’s what she said”. There… do you feel better now?
After quite an epic weekend with my ICFH alumns I am more then ready to have a low key weekend filled with clean eats, double digit hours of sleep time and long runs to shake out the sore muscles! I will recap this past weekend sometime this week. Tonight, I have more important things to share with you…
This is my 2nd time participating in the Foodie Pen Pals program set up by the great Lindsay at Lean Green Bean Blog – head on over there and check it out – Lindsay is a sweet girl! (you can check out my 1st post about the program here)
This month I received an unbelievable package from Cassie at Back To Her Roots. After reading a bunch of her posts I knew for sure I would put her in my Google Reader. A big shout out to cassie’s readers who have really upped my daily stats in page visits. I hope you will give The Little Spoon Blog a chance and stop by again!
Alright, enough yapping… lets get to the good stuff!
As if the goodies weren’t great enough, Cassie wrapped each and every item and attached a hand written note. This aspect of her package really made a difference for me and I know that I will add personal touches to my future packages. What a nice surprise! I’m going to just post the pictures and let Cassie do the explaining 😉
(I am also a sucker for Lemon, you better believe this was
inhaled right away the first thing I opened)
Here is a shot of everything opened up and ready to be taste tested! You can probably guess which one I opened first….
Overall, this was a great 2nd Foodie PenPals package and I look forward to next months! If you are at all interested in what I sent out, stop on over to Taylor’s Blog!!
And now it’s time for some details about the Foodie PenPals program. In case you’re a new reader, here’s a reminder of what the program is all about:
-On the 5th of every month, you will receive your penpal pairing via email. It will be your responsibility to contact your penpal and get their mailing address and any other information you might need like allergies or dietary restrictions. -You will have until the 15th of the month to put your box of goodies in the mail. On the last day of the month, you will post about the goodies you received from your penpal! -The boxes are to be filled with fun foodie things, local food items or even homemade treats! The spending limit is $15. The box must also include something written. This can be anything from a note explaining what’s in the box, to a fun recipe…use your imagination! -You are responsible for figuring out the best way to ship your items depending on their size and how fragile they are. (Don’t forget about flat rate boxes!) -Foodie Penpals is open to blog readers as well as bloggers. If you’re a reader and you get paired with a blogger, you are to write a short guest post for your penpal to post on their blog about what you received. If two readers are paired together, neither needs to worry about writing a post for that month. -Foodie Penplas is open to US & Canadian residents. Please note, Canadian Residents will be paired with other Canadians only. We’ve determined things might get too slow and backed up if we’re trying to send foods through customs across the border from US to Canada and vice versa.
You must submit your information by May 4th as pairings will be emailed on May 5th!
*If you’re from somewhere besides the US, Canada or Europe and want to participate, send me an email and I’ll see if we get enough interest this month!
