Foodie Penpals

This month my foodie penpal was Ashley from Cooper's Cravings and she sent a ton of goodies, most of which are already gone...

Chocolate, nuts, and fruit, how could you go wrong?
The chocolate was delish, too bad I had to share with hubby and kids.
Thanks Ashley!!!

If you want to sign up for foodie penpals for May, here are the details:

Here’s a detailed explanation of the program:
-On the 5th of the month, you will receive your penpal pairing via email. It will be your responsibility to contact your penpal and get their mailing address and any other information you might need like allergies 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 treatsThe spending limit is $15The 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!
-You are responsible for figuring out the best way to ship your items depending on their size and 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 and you get paired with a blogger, you can choose 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 that month.
- Foodie Penpals is open to US, Canadian residents & UK residents.  Please note, Canadian Residents will be paired with other Canadians only. We’ve determined things might get too slow and backed up if we’re trying to send foods through customs across the border from US to Canada and vice versa. So, I’m going to keep two separate lists and match US w/ US and Canada w/ Canada!


I got my hair cut and highlighted on Thursday night, and 3 hours later, I hated it!  It was BAAAAAD.  Like fried all of my hair, which was ALL white blonde by the way.  I've never had an experience like that. I've always heard salon horror stories, but was lucky enough never to have it happen to me.  So, I spent Friday "fixing" my hair.  I'm still not happy with it, but at least now I can live with it.  It's really truly fried though and unfortunately that is not reversible.  

Other than that the weekend was pretty craptastic.
I still have this ankle pain and cannot run. I don't know what to do, or how to get it better. Very frustrating.  We tried to plan a lot of out door activities this weekend, but it was too hot for the kiddos. Plus my 1 year old will not sit in a stroller, she has to walk and trying to do that with 20,000 other people around, is very difficult.  She got trampled a few times.

I'm trying to run a 5k on May 20th, so I am going to down some IBProfin, suck it up and run.

Have a great Monday!


  1. ummm yum! sounds like the perfect things from the foodie pen least they are all my favorites :) haha!

    i have had one bad hair experience and i can was miserable and i definitely freaked out and went into "fix it" mode! so glad you were able to redeem it to a point you are happy with!

    sending positive vibes regarding the ankle! hopefully it starts feeling better soon and you can rock the may 20th 5k!
