Life has been just a teensy bit crazy the last few weeks. The school year is in full swing and we’re 10 days in. I actually have nearly lost my voice since I am so unused to talking all day every day! Hopefully the three-day weekend will bring some healing for me. I hope.
Enough rambling. It’s Foodie Pen Pal reveal day!
This is my second month participating (see July’s here) and I still can’t get over how neat it is.
It arrived pretty early in the month (before the “must send” date!) and I was pleasantly surprised to find a package outside my door when I got home from work.
A few new-to-me bars, Unreal peanut butter cups and some honey roasted cashews – my favorite nuts!
Lots of tea! I love tea, especially in the fall and winter. I have tons in my cabinet but I’m always looking for new blends to try.
I also sent a box to Mary at The JMB Family this month.
And now it’s time for some details about Foodie Pen Pals. 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.
