{first} foodie penpal: August reveal

{I apologize in advance for the lack of pictures.  I have them; just not in this post.  I will add them when I have my computer back on Sunday....}

Here we are; the end of freakin' August already.  And, not only is it the last day of August & the Friday before a nice, long weekend, it's foodie penpal reveal day!

This month was my first {and certainly NOT last} month participating in the foodie penpal program put on by the amazing Lindsay over at The Lean Green Bean.

If you want to read an inspiring blog, fully loaded with awesome recipes & killer workouts, definitely check her out!

Alright, back to me :)  This month, I was so lucky to be paired with Lisa over at Cluttercafe.  Check out her blog...I'll wait :)  Not only did she send me a great package, but she's a total sweetheart!  It was/is so much fun getting to know her!  

Let's dive into the package....shall we?

1 - The Food Network Magazine filled with amazing recipes!  I can't wait to spend some time in the kitchen making some of these delicious dishes.  And, Lisa totally personalized the book by putting sticky notes with her thoughts, ideas & comments on practically every page...LOVE!!  It certainly helped me get to know her better!

2 - This amazing lunch organizer!  I bring my lunch almost every day & pretty much adore these containers!  I've used them numerous times already...they're amazing!

3 - Bert's Bees chapstick...um, it's lip-smacking good ;) {sorry, I couldn't resist...I blame it on lack of sleep}.  I love Bert's Bees & will be using this constantly.  

4 - She made this a-freakin'mazing coconut lime sugar body scrub!  It's pretty much my new favorite thing.  And, it smells amazing...I've had to tell myself numerous times  that it's not for eatin' ;)

Thank-you so much for the amazing package & first foodie penpal experience, Lisa!  

Jealous and want to join??  Here's how:

What is the program all about?

- On the 5th of every month, you will receive your penpal pairing via email.  It will be your responsibility to contact your penpal & get their mailing address & any other information you might need such as allergy 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; the possibilities are endless!

- You are responsible for figuring out the best way to ship your items depending on their size & 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 & 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 the month.

- Foodie Penpals is open to US & Canadian residents.  Please note, Canadian residents will be paired with other Canadian residents ONLY.  We've determined things might get too slow & backed up if we're trying to send foods through customs across the border from the US to Canada & vice versa. 

If you are interested in participating for September, please CLICK HERE to fill out the participation form & to read the terms & conditions.

You must submit your information by September 4th as pairings will be emailed on September 5th.

**If you're from somewhere besides the US, Canada or Europe & want to participate, send Lindsay an email & she'll see if there is enough interest this month.
