I'm Back! And with Foodie Pen Pals!

Hello end of April... where did you go?! Oh yea that's right, you went to teaching, classes, lesson plans, projects, etc. Thank goodness my little 'ol blog will never leave me :)

One of the best parts of April was receiving my Foodie Pen Pal box! Here are some of the wonderful goodies I got!

I also got all of these goodies! Justin's nut butters are one of my favorite! If you haven't tried Luna Protein Bars you MUST! The cookie dough tasted like cookie dough! I haven't tried the Rawtella or Winetime bar but they involve chocolate so I know I'll love them!

    And last but certainly not least a box of wine! Seriously, Bota Box wine... yep so good! 

If you haven't tried #foodiepenpals before you should! Here's the run down

-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 interested in participating for May, please CLICK HERE to fill out the participation form and read the terms and conditions. 

You must submit your information by May 4th as pairings will be emailed on May 5th!

*If you're from somewhere besides the US, Canada or Europe and want to participate, send me an email and I'll see if we get enough interest this month!

Defintely sign up and enjoy meeting new bloggers and the gift of giving!
