So August was a crazy month for me -- lots of changes and new things. One of my favorite things I did this month was sign up for Foodie Penpals over at The Lean Green Bean -- here are the rules:
Here’s a detailed explanation of the program:
-On the 5th of the 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 can choose 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 Penpals is open to US, Canadian residents & UK residents.

So now for my FUN part!!
This month I was paired to send to Lindsay -- you can find her at Cotter Crunch to see what I sent to her! I had Stacy from Creating Sweet Smiles who sent stuff to me!
When I opened my box -- here is what I saw :)
Ok - so look above. That is all my AWESOMENESS (yes, I am still using that word). So she sent me an awesome note...
Honestly, this whole process was way better and a lot more fun then I thought! It was like Christmas morning getting my box from Stacy and getting stuff together for Lindsay!
Can't wait for September :)
