I was so excited to take part in this program, mostly because I love having pen pals, but also because I love healthy new finds!! We are limited with what we can get over here, and so any healthy goodness that comes from the states is always welcome in a very over-dramatic and excitable fashion!!! I was so lucky to get hooked up with a pal who is also a military wife and mom of two great kids! She totally came through and hooked me up BIG TIME!!!!
As we know, I am a huge fan of chocolate, granola, oatmeal, chocolate, grains, green tea, chocolate, etc!!! I swear, this package was seriously 100% bang on with things I am now in love with. There is literally NOTHING in this package that I can get here!!! That makes me really excited, because it is all new and all a treat! My hub could barely get a clear picture because I was bouncing around and cheering like a total
We are in love with the granola, and he is in love with the spicy goods that were sent just for him (how sweet is that??!!). I have already enjoyed the oatmeal, and it was super good!!!! I am actually going to hoard it so I can have it for my next half marathon! I might have to order some on-line! There were delicious single servings of trail mix, Lara bars, Dove chocolate, THEN packages of flavored quinoa, veggie rotini noodles and couscous!!!! I was in foodie heaven!!!
We are going to dig into the couscous and quinoa this week and then the pasta this weekend! It could probably be seen as pathetic how excited I am about this! I am literally saving the Lara Bars because I know once I eat them they will be gone…yes, that really does sound pathetic! Oh well, I am sure there are others out there who get equally excited and pathetic about new foodie finds! In the meantime, I have a new pen pal (not just a one time thing, hooray) and that excites me! I am a lover of sending mail and handwritten letters, so a permanent pal is always a heart warming addition to my life! Now, we prepare for Spring (3 consecutive days of nice weather…) and look forward to being outdoors!!!!
What was your most exciting part of the weekend???
