So, this is the second month that I participated in the Foodie Pen Pals. This is the brainchild of Lindsay at The Lean Green Bean
. What a great idea she came up with. Every month she matches
two people by email. She has groups practically across the globe. Mostly here, (US) Canada, and the UK. She has managed to match people with their prospective countries due to shipping reasons. Here is how it works.on or about the fifth of each month she sends you a email giving you your assignment.
In this e-mail it contains your assigned Pen Pals e-mail. You are responsible for contacting that person and finding out if they have any allergies, what they like and don’t like to eat. The address to send it to etc. Thank goodness for flat rate boxes right?
You have 72 hours to do this.
Then you have until the 15th of the month to send out your package.
At the end of the month, you then blog about what you got (if you have a blog).
Oh yeah, you can’t spend more than 15 bucks.
Also you need to put a personal note in with the stuff you sent.
I got Ashlee Turner.
Her website is First day of the rest of days
I tried as I might to send her mostly healthy stuff.
You see Ashlee has lost over 30 pounds so far and I want to keep her on track.
My package was sent to me by Marlo Wolfe
She does not have a blog.
So, I can’t tell you a lot about her.
I can tell you that she sent me some wonderful stuff.
She wasn’t kidding when she said those Key Lime Short bread cookies were addictive.
They are gone.
Thank you so much Marlo!
Peace be with you,
