Confession: I was supposed to write and post this entry yesterday.
And I’m sorry.Life got in the way …
I’ll be honest, life will probably be getting in the way a lot in the next couple of weeks. With weddings, baby showers, graduations, Mother’s Day , birthdays, “new and exciting commitments”, communions and family coming from away – while I will certainly be living the sweet life – it’s about to.get.busy.!!
I imagine life is about to become a roller-coaster and I better buckle up.
But I’ll count my blessings, take it one day at a time and I’m sure there will be nights where cupcakes are my dinner because I need a little sprinkle in my life
Enough about that .. let’s get to the goods!!
Looookkkkiiiieeeee loooookkkiiiieeee what I got!!!!
Do you know anyone who doesn’t just LOVE getting packages in the mail, it makes me feel so grown up and important … and they are far more special than seeing bills in the mail. As soon as I saw the little box, I knew what it was – - and I tore right in….
It was my April Foodie Pen pal package from the lovely and oh so sweet Ana (aka Piper) from Pipers run!!
Judging from Piper’s run, she’s a superwoman – balancing being a mom, runner, wife and having time for herself. When you have a moment check out her blog … she writes about some really cool topics and leaves you feeling energized.
I struck gold this month, beforehand Ana contacted me to find out a bit about me – my likes, dislikes, allergies and all that fun stuff.
Was she spot on, or was she spot on?!!?
Chocolate – - ummm YESS please!!
Chai Tea … helllooo, morning cup of tea – you have a new friend.
And of course I’ve saved the best for last
GRANOLA & GRANOLA BARS!!
You can’t see me now, but there are fireworks everywhere I look now.
Piper sent me 3 granola bars … notice there is only 2 in the picture. I couldn’t help it … they looked so good and I got hungry
Not only did I get three granola bars but also an entire bag of coconut granola. *yummm* Wait till you see what I did with this baby – - put it this way, I made it Sunday … and it’s now all gone!!
Needless to say – -Piper, I loved the package – - thank you sooo much!!
This was my first month participating in the Foodie pen pal program and it was SO much fun!! I got the chance to send Sarah, a 3rd year university student a box of goodies to add a little sweetness to her exam period.
Hey, do you want in on this yummy action?
Commmmeee onnnn down!!
Sign-up here by the 4th of the month, so you have enough time to shop around:
Stay sweet my dears – - I promise to have a recipe for you … soon.
