Foodie Pen Pal- November

Another month is gone and Lindsey over at leangreenbean has been kind enough to once again host Foodie Pen Pals. Check out what I got last month

This month was no different... I waited in anticipation for my package and when I got home from working out and saw my box at the front door I got super excited!

This month I sent my goodies to Lisa over at healthydiaries

My goodies came from Katie over at running and cupcakes

There is nothing more I love than opening mail that does not require me to send money back in a separate envelope. In a world of, texting, facebook, twitting, and everything else that requires people not actually ever have to talk to one another, it is nice to slow down for a moment and enjoy something from someone you don't even know.

Katie sent me any chocolate lovers dream package.

I am not a huge chocolate fan so Brian got to enjoy treats for me, he loves getting the benefits of this without having to actually participate LOL.

One of the coolest things Katie sent was instant oatmeal

 I haven't given this to Brian to try but I am extremely interested in trying this myself in a different flavor. You use the oatmeal package to measure out the water to heat it. If you read my blog you know I am all about saving myself from doing dishes LOL.

Larabars are my favorite. I have even begun to make my own! Luna bars are also a great snack on the go.

Among the goodies there was holiday flavored green tea. I was very happy last night when it finally went below 70 degrees here in Fl. so I could actually enjoy a cup of tea.

I enjoy a nice cup of tea while I am doing work. So I decided to fix myself a cup of this Candy Cane Green Tea while I prepared lunches for the next day. The smell when I opened the box was an instant hit of peppermint which made me wish it would get cold here soon!

 I have already signed up for December and am excited to get my package during the crazy busy holiday season.

Thanks again to Katie for my box of goodies!!!!
