September Foodie Pen Pal

Talk about being a MAJOR space cadet! So today we were supposed to post about our Foodie Pen Pal and I TOTALLY a spaced on publishing my post. I must have REALLY been enjoying the beautiful weather either way, here is the break down of the awesome stuff I got from a lovely Blog Reader Kristin! Here's a peak into what she got me...

First off, how cute is this wrapping????

SOOO many goodies!!! I <3 FPP!!
So I am seriously loving this FPP business! It's like they have eyes into my soul!! :) Every thing Kristin sent was spot on! Hubs is LOVING the PB2, I haven't tried it yet, but I look forward to.  Honey is ALWAYS a staple at our house, so I was stoked to find it in my package. The seasoning is waiting for a fun crockpot night. I'll be sure to post a recipe once I get to it. The fruit strips were gone within a blink of an eye and the organic bar is packed in the purse for a quick snack on the go. The tea??? Well it's like she took two of my favorite types of tea (fruit and rooibos) and married them and sent them to me. All in all I can say that FPP is probably my favorite thing in the whole world right now. THANK YOU Kristin!!!!!

Oh and by the way, did you see the beautiful card she sent me??? I wish that was in my backyard... *sigh*

Now, I bet YOU want in!! No problem, check below for details!!

Here are the Foodie Penpals details:
  • 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.
  • If you’re new and interested in participating for September, please CLICK HERE to fill out the participation form and read the terms and conditions.
  • You must submit your information by October 4th as pairings will be emailed on October 5th! You will receive a confirmation email within 24 hours if you sign up. IF YOU DON’T GET ONE, send an email to Lindsay at!
