Let’s get this show on the road!
1) This happened…
A great way to end a Friday, right! The worst part is that now I can’t go pick up my wine of the month from UPS! Gah!
2) It’s Foodie Penpal reveal day!! My penpal was Parita from myinnershakti. I gotta say it was a little creepy…she got me things that I needed and was thinking about buying. Almost as if she asked Bond what I needed…
Nah, that can’t be right…
Anywho. Parita hooked me up!
What you are seeing: Dry Roasted Edamame – delicious!
Lindt Touch of Sea Salt Dark Chocolate – I just opened this yesterday and it’s a good thing I decided to exhibit some type of self-control…
Dried granny apple chips – I brought home this exact bag (well not exact) for Christmas and ate the whole thing in one sitting, true story.
Chocolate covered espresso beans – so dangerously addictive!
Peanut Butter – I had just run out of peanut butter the day before…see, creepy! 😉
Cliff Peanut Butter Bar – haven’t tried yet, but I’m always up for new bars, hahaha
Mojo Mt. Trail Mix Bar – This was delicious and I will definitely be buying more in the future
Bond obviously had to make his own judgements
I really love being involved in Foodie Penpals. If you think it is something you are interested in as well, take a gander…
Lindsey at TheLeanGreenBean graciously sets it up every month. She is truly da bomb! If you think you want to try it out, here’s what you need to know!
-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. So, I’m going to keep two separate lists and match US w/ US and Canada w/ Canada!
If you’re interested in participating for April, please CLICK HERE to fill out the participation form and read the terms and conditions. You will also find contact information on that page for the UK branch of Foodie Penpals if you’re a blogger across the pond!
You must submit your information by April 4th as pairings will be emailed on April 5th!
Yep, so that’s it in a nutshell…
3) I got new shoes! Did I say that already? Oh well, if I did you’re hearing about it again.
My new kicks, which aren’t really new. I’ve been getting Brooks Adrenaline for years now. I’m breaking them in for the Flying Pig and I really like them! I think they are helping with the shin splints I was getting earlier in my training.
4) I gotta give a shout out to my friend Arla! She gave me some really great coupons to Skinny Dip and Chick Fil A. I’m really looking forward to using them. It’s nice to have friends with benefits. Wait, that came out wrong…
5) Christopher Meloni is going to be in True Blood? Stabler as a vampire? I’m interested in how this will play out… Now he can really show those perps what he thinks of them!
Welp, I hope you all have had a great Friday! I am going to sit and wait for a call from an insurance company…don’t be jealous…
