Normally I post my meal plans on Mondays and link up with Org Junkie, but today is the reveal day for Foodie Pen Pals, so that is taking priority!
I have decided not to participate in October, as life is just too crazy to add something else to my to-do list, but hopefully I will join in the fun again in November.
This month I was matched up with a very sweet teacher who lives in BC. She is a lover of Bento boxes and brings cup cakes to work every single Friday for the other teachers! Sounds like a great place to work 🙂 I was so excited to open my mail box and find her pen pal package waiting for me! Here are all the wonderful things she sent me:
With the tiny bit of information I gave her, she nailed it! This package was awesome, so many yummy treats! Dark chocolate; the little ones we the first to go! Flavoured craisins that I hadn’t tried yet, and will be perfect in a fall salad with some apples and walnuts. So much tea, which is great, because I am such a tea granny! I think I have about 6 or 7 teas in the cupboard right now! Yummy Jelly Belly candies which are one of my favourite treats of all time!) And of course some colourful cupcake liners and a recipe for vanilla cupcakes, and a sweet letter! As much fun as it is to receive a package each month, I think the best part about this program is “meeting” other people. Yes some are bloggers, so finding a new blog to read is great, but getting to know people a little through emails and the hand written part of the program, is such a nice thing.
I really recommend everyone sign up for this, it is so much fun, and such a well organized process! For more information check out The Lean Green Bean.
Hopefully I will get my meal plan up later today, plus I have all those others posts I keep promising! I have so many great pictures and DIYs from the big 1st birthday party this past weekend to share with you! So stay tuned for that!
