Foodie Penpals and Giveaway!

Finally! I don't know why my internet has been throwing up its middle finger at me lately but I am glad to finally get this post out!

About a month and a half ago, I emailed Lindsay over at The Lean Green Bean to sign myself up for her Foodie Penpal program. With over 100 "members" she matches each of us up with another blogger/food lover to send a small package to. You send a package to one person while someone different sends one to you. For more information on how you can sign up, check out her blog!

If you want to see what I sent Courtney from A So-Called Runner, check out her post here! Here is a preview though:

Last week I received a package from Joanna over at Joanna Does It All . She sent me a couple of Mexican inspired goods since she lives over in Arizona! Woohoo! Thanks Joanna!

I haven't had a chance to try them all yet but I did get a chance to try The Bee's Knees peanut butter (with honey in it! Gives it a more sweet taste!) and the Starbucks Peppermint Hot Chocolate! Yummmyyyy!!

The peanut butter bag is flat and the Hot Chocolate box is opened if you can't tell! Tore through these first!

She sent me a lot of gluten free things too, which, honestly, I haven't really tried before. I am excited to try some GF goods and to connect with a fellow blogger who loves food as much as I do!
