Foodie Pen Pals!!

I'm so excited to present my FIRST post for Foodie Pen Pals August 2013!
If your not familiar with it you can read up on it here on Lindsay's (founder of FPP) blog. Not to be extremely long winded but the program is pretty much like... you make sure to sign up, the by the 5th of the month you receive your matches. The person who YOU'LL be sending a box of goodies to, and the person who will be sending YOU a box of goodies! You have a budget of $15 but lets be real, who can stay within that limit?
Don't forget to linkup!
It's really fun to get food, snacks and goodies from people in extremely different parts of the country. Example, If you live in the deep South and send a package to a Pacific North Westerner. Or a Midwesterner person sending a package to a born-bred New Yorker! If that makes any sense. So, I actually participated in the FPP last year July and I actually never received my package. I believe it was because when I moved from SC to NC, then back to SC the address change situation got crazy. That kind of discouraged me a bit, but I was reading someone else's blog and then saw that did the FPP and I said "why not give it another shot?" So I did! I was paired with Anna and Lena! I sent a package that was VERY Charleston themed to Lena of LeanLena and I received a package from Anna of Restaurant Wife Dietitian Life! I got really nervous about the package because it was sent on a Saturday with 2-day shipping and I didn't get it until the next Friday. I thought the USPS lost yet another package, which low and behold they didn't, but the box was definitely banged up, and I know for a fact she didn't send it that way, so SHAME on you USPS... Moving on, I was emailing Anna that VERY day about how I didn't receive the package yet and she had already thrown away the receipt with the tracking number. I ran a few errands after work and didn't get home until about 2 hours after we exchanged emails. I walk into my room and see this...
I was SOOOOO excited, talk about rip a package open? It surely felt like Christmas! :)
This is what it looked like when I opened the box...
I love newspapers!
Here's What was included:

1. Lime & Chile Mixed Nuts
2. Sweet & Spicy Pecans
3. Cranberry Almond KIND bars- So AMAZING!
4. Hot & Sweet Mustard (I haven't tried it yet but I. CANNOT. WAIT!
5. Dark Chocolate/Caramel Wedges
Everything all nice and pretty!(excuse my messy bed). When I told her I like spicy, she made sure to deliver the SPICY!
Don't forget to go sign up for the Foodie Pen Pals September 2013!

All I Want......

I swear to you guys, after all the Instagram videos and YouTube videos ALL I want are a pair of BeyoncĂ© "The Mrs. Carter Show!" tickets. That would make my life. I promise you if somebody gave me some right now I'd probably faint and when I come to they would forever be my best friend. I really love Bey y'all, like really! I would love to experience a concert of hers LIVE! I would buy multiple tshirts. One to wear, one to frame... I guess I can dream huh?

Is it...

Is it 4pm on Friday afternoon yet? That's what I've been looking forward to since Monday morning. I love the weekends y'all. The weather here sucked all week and I felt a little sick, do hopefully this weekend will be amazing! I know it will be because I sent my Foodie Pen Pal her package today! Can't wait until she gets it. 

Just thought I'd let you guys know how much I'm looking forward to Friday! :) 

Peace & Love

I'm Mentally Preparing Myself...

Hey y'all, I'll already getting my state of mind and palette ready for one of my favorite Charleston events. The Southern Living TASTE OF CHARLESTON!
The event is being held between September 27-29, 2013. Its usually held in October when the weather is a little less... scorching, but I can deal. I've only attended the "Main Event" at Boone Hall where I can purchase tickets and taste samples of everything from some of Charleston's BEST restaurants. I'm especially excited this time because I can finally WINE TASTE!!! *grabs personalized wine glass*
Who else is going to be there? Does your city have a "Taste of...?" What food events are y'all most looking forward too? Let me know, I'm nosey!
Peace & Love
