For those of you unfamiliar, Foodie Penpal is the brainchild of the lovely Lindsay of The Lean Green Bean. You sign up through Lindsay, then on the 5th of the month she sends you your match. You contact them and talk food. Then by the 15th of the month you send your package off to your match. On the last day of the month everyone posts their goodies on their blog, or if they don’t blog they can share on facebook or twitter. It’s a cool group and if you’re not participating you should think about joining the fun. It’s a great group of people and it’s so much fun to shop for other foodies. I have a blast with it each month.
I am so excited to post this month. Last month I was left hanging, no package arrived, no note from my sender explaining why. I sure hope everything is okay, and somewhere down the line she’ll pop me a note so I know she’s okay. So even though I knew I’d be on vacation this time around I still wanted to participate. I let my match know I was going on vacation so she kindly sent it early. And she sent the coolest package. So much good stuff I don’t know where to begin.
Thank you so much to Julia for putting together such an amazing package. I love every single item. And your notes were so adorable. I have to tell you my daughter thought it was a package from my sister who is notorious for putting sticky notes on every item in every package she sends us. So mini-me thought it was a goodie package from Aunt Deb. I am so pleased to know there’s other people out there who love sticky notes as much as we do. It’s such a thoughtful and personal touch. It made me grin from ear to ear as I read each one. Your note and recipe were wonderful too. I am so honoured you sent me your grandma’s recipe. It meant the world to me.
So folks if you are not participating you need to get off your duff and join the group. It’s a ton of fun and you meet some amazing folks along the way. So sign up for next month and join the fun.
I’m probably touring a college with mini-me right now. She booked a tour of one of the schools she’s interested in while we’re out west. So while I’m dropping B-Dude off for his new life I get double whammied with my daughter thinking about moving out there too. So obviously mom is considering moving too. Poor B-Dude thought he was getting away from us. Little did he know we’re hatching an evil plot to take over Alberta. Mwuahhahahahaha!
Toodles and smoochies! xx
