Now, I don’t want you to think that my Foodie Penpal was a low…that was not the case!
It’s Friday and my last weekend before school starts up again. I’m excited for the new school year. There are a lot of changes, most of them good!
High: For lunch today we were treated to Bravo’s! It was so delicious! Very thankful to have such a yummy meal!
Low: I started the week with this
Yup, real classy looking. That’s how I walked into school on the first day of teacher work week. So what did I do? Well, it was either Fight Club (oh wait, you do no talk about Fight Club), my new (not really new)gen ed teacher is really mean, or I was trying to get into my car and duck out of the way of a tree branch and the car door won. If you guessed the last choice, you’d be right.
High: Food Penpals! My penpal was Sam over at SexyFlexi. She gave me an awesome Foodie box!
Start at the left: chocolate roasted almonds S’mores, apple chips, Seaweed snacks, Madras Sambar, Vegan sprinkles, Cracked Pepper Jerky Stick, and last but definitely not least a twisted cheese croissant from Homeboy Industries. Let me tell you, that croissant did not last long. Pretty much as soon as I opened the box…I inhaled that croissant, sooooo good!
High: Continuing on from the Foodie High… Sam made the ingenious move and included Wes Anderson movie quotes to go along with all the foods. I seriously gasped and did a little happy dance when I saw that.
Croissant – “How do you say “grilled cheese” from Hotel Chevalier. Jerky – Anthony “cracked” and when to the nuthouse from Bottle Rocket.
Madras Samba – Indian Food from Darjeeling Limited. Vegan Sprinkles – “I’d like to order some ice cream for my daughter please” from The Royal Tenenbaums. Sea Snacks – “I’ve been out to sea for a long time” from Rushmore.
Dolphin Endangered Species Chocolate – “Son of a bitch, I’m sick of these dolphins” from The Life Aquatic. Somehow I don’t have pictures of the apple chips (which I ate as a snack at the airport) and the almonds… The quotes were: “The boy is being held in an apple crate on top of a gun cabinet in the attic of the Bean Annex” from Fantastic Mr. Fox and “Because what’s camping without S’mores?” from Moonrise Kingdom (which I still need to see).
I loved that Sam did that! It was totally cool and I loved it. Did I mention I loved it?
High: Sunsets, they are just perfection
Welp, I just got back from a walk. The first one since I slammed my face into the car door. I’m gonna chill have some din din and declare tonight movie night!
Have a great Labor Day weekend!
