July Foodie Penpals

It’s the last day of the month so it’s time for another installation of Foodie Penpals!

Lindsay over at The Lean Green Bean organizes Foodie Penpals every month.  Here’s how it works:

Participants are assigned a pen pal and send a fun, food package by the 15th of the month, with contents that add up to no more than $15.  There’s a link to details at the end of the post…if you’re interested, get in touch with Lindsay by August 4th.

I’m always excited to see what arrives in the mail!  You can see my past write-ups here.

I was paired up with Katy–you can see the goodies I sent her by checking out her blog Katie Did on a Dime.  She lives in Texas and recently started her blog and writes about her adventures in frugal home improvement, cooking, and everyday living.

On to the exciting package that showed up at my doorstep!

Katie from The Little Spoon Blog sent me a box full of goodies!

When Katie emailed me asking about likes/dislikes I told her anything I could take on-the-go would be helpful and appreciated.

She delivered and sent me a lot of fun treats including some of her favorites–and even gum balls that are made in her hometown.  That was a sweet treat.

Can’t wait to try these Better Oats!

I will wait until the weather cools down a bit to eat the Better Oats. I’ve seen the oats in the grocery store and have wanted to try them.  The snacks are going in my purse for quick, go-to eats when I’m busy or on the road.

A very big thank you to Katie for a thoughtful and creative package of goodies and a big thank you to Lindsay for organizing Foodie Penpals!  It was really fun to participate…I got to “know” (virtually) new bloggers and try new treats–a Win, Win!

June Foodie Penpals

It’s the last day of the month so it’s time for another installation of Foodie Penpals!

This was my sixth month participating…and it’s always so fun to see what arrives in the mail!  You can see my past write-ups here.

I was paired up with Krista–you can see the goodies I sent her by checking out her blog MissCellaneous.  She lives in Alaska, just had 12″ of hair cut off & donated it to Locks of Love, and she has an adorable dog!

On to the exciting package that showed up at my doorstep!

Michelle from Blogitness sent me a box full of goodies!  Michelle is a fellow Sweat Pink Ambassador and has great workout/fitness information on her blog.  (This reminds me–I am behind the ball in getting my Sweat Pink Ambassador info online!)

When Michelle emailed me asking about likes/dislikes I told her I am on the hunt for new, tasty, healthy protein bars.

She delivered and sent me a lot of fun treats including some of her favorite snacks and beverages.

I’d never tried coconut water so appreciated the opportunity to try it–mango flavor.  Light and refreshing.  My Quality Assurance Guy (QAG) swiped the cookie/chocolate combo snack.  Also new to me was macadamia nut butter – I’m hanging onto that one to throw in my bag for my next trip.  The Bella Bar was a delicious bar – all natural, raw ingredients.  I got to try the Cinnamon Nut Raw Bar.  I love all things cinnamon.  The Crystal Light and Lipton Green Tea & Honey packets will really come in handy with Summer hydration.

A very big thank you to Michelle for a thoughtful and creative package of goodies and a big thank you to Lindsay for organizing Foodie Penpals!  It was really fun to participate…I got to “know” (virtually) new bloggers and try new treats–a Win, Win!  I’m excited to participate again in July!
