FoodiePenPals Reveal!



Reveal Day is here! My Foodiepenpal this month was Michelle from Wisconsin and she sent me a whole bunch of awesome treats!

I immediately dug into the granola, of course, but have spaced out eating the rest of the box of goodies.



This granola is sooo good! I love everything cinnamon raisin so I knew this would become a new breakfast/snack-time staple for me.


White chocolate macadamia!

I ended up getting 3 of my favorite type of cookie! They’re buttery and delicious. I brought them home with me so I didn’t gobble them all up on my own.


I also brought the cheese home with me and my family loves it! It was such a surprise to bite into the cheddar and distinctly taste the Merlot.  Even though it’s Merlot cheddar, I wasn’t expecting it to taste so much like Merlot but that just makes it that much more awesome.



I haven’t dug into the chocolate yet, but isn’t the packaging great? I love it and can’t wait to try it!

Thank you SO much Michelle! Everything is/was/(I’m sure will be) amazing!

For those who don’t know, foodiepenpals is a super fun program that Lindsay (thank you!!) from The Lean Green Bean created for bloggers and non-bloggers as a way to share the fantastic treats from their areas of the U.S. (and now Canada/the UK! ) If you want more information, or want to join in on the fun, just head over to her blog and read up on all the deets! (you can find them here! )


Bottomless pit.


Does anyone else ever feel like their stomach is literally a bottomless pit? Lately I can’t help but eat everything in the cabinet (mostly candy/nuts/anything sweet and salty)

and then some.

and then some more.

Seriously, it’s becoming quite a problem.

Tonight I decided that the solution to my problem would be to stuff my face so I wouldn’t want to eat any more sweet stuff, after I already ate a sh*t ton of candy/nuts.

On top of the candy I made myself a Kashi frozen chicken enchillada meal. SO GOOD. And had some popchips/salsa/greek yogurt(in place of sour cream) on the side. Finished the kashi meal cause it was fantastic and didnt really eat the other stuff.  So far I would say it’s working…but it’s only been like 20 minutes. 

I think this plan will be a winner.  Or I’ll be rolling in stomach pain soon.  I’ll keep ya updated.

In other news: I sent out my foodiepenpals box today! STOKED for her to get it!
It has also been BEAUTIFUL here in Colorado lately.  Loving the weather, not loving my lobster red chest…aka sunburned…ouch…and i wore sunscreen…guess that’s what I get for being transparent. 

Hope you aaaaallllllll are faring better than I am these days.  Hopefully I’ll stop being such a hot mess once spring break rolls around.
