Ok seriously. Tell me it’s really not already November.

Where has time gone?

This whole last year has seriously flashed before me and I don’t know where it has gone. I’m not sure if it’s school or all the other drama, but geez louise.

One good thing about the end of the month though is Foodie Pen Pal Reveal!

I say it every month, but seriously guys, check out the program if you haven’t already. It’s good times. I promise.

So without further ado, let’s check out the goodies I got this month. I think I say this every month too, but I always seem to get so lucky with my matches.

This month, by fate I tell you (my original match dropped out), I ended up getting paired with Tami from Journey To A Healthy Life.

This lady is a doll let me tell you and she spoiled me way beyond what she should have.

I made two suggestions and in my mind was thinking either or.

She got me both.

I had suggested the PB2 Chocolate because I can’t find it anywhere and the Earth Balance coconut and peanut spread.

See what I mean about her being a doll? Because she got me even more.

Spoiled I tell you. I am truly spoiled.

Also included was Clover Honey (I need recipes guys!! I’m not a honey person so I don’t know what to do with it!!), two more small sample packets of PB2 and PB Thins (omg was so excited to try these!) (they were good, and quickly gone), snack nuts (my fiance thanks you), and the cutest cards! She sent me some blank ones! So cute.

So of course when I opened the package this quickly happened.

I don’t even want to acknowledge the amount I ate right then and there straight out of the jar.

It’s seriously a little bit embarrassing.

So embarrassing I told everyone about it.

Clearly I wasn’t that embarrassed.

 So overall? Ah-mazing. I loved everything. Thank you so much Tami!

Are you interested in joining yet?

I thought so.

Here’s the rundown:

-On the 5th of the month, you will receive your pen pal pairing via email. It will be your responsibility to contact your pen pal 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 pen pal!
-The boxes are to be filled with fun foodie things, local food items or even homemade treatsThe spending limit is $15The 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 Pen pals 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 pen pal 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.
