Foodie Fridays: Foodie Pen Pals

I kind of dropped off the grid for a a couple of weeks. I actually went to Vegas with the biffle last weekend which was awesome! And now I am slowly getting back into the flow of things. I’m also transitioning to start working full-time starting July 1st at one of my part-time jobs but throwing in working on community educational initiatives, which I am super psyched about!

A couple of years ago, when I was still living in New York, I participated in a foodie pen pals through the Lean Green Bean swap three or four times. I loved it but because of my schedule, couldn’t commit to doing it. I decided to restart it this month and I am so glad I did! I was paired with Raina from the_home_plate. What a sweetheart! She lives in Murfreesboro, TN–I’ve actually been there! We drove through there last month on our way back to Nashville from the Jack Daniels Distillery. I stopped and had my first Sonic experience–a delicious milkshake that they brought to my car :).

Raina sent an awesome package full of yummies-many of which I brought on the plane with me to Vegas. Here we go!

Thank you Raina, for such an awesome package! I totally recommend getting involved with swaps, I think they are a great way to get to know people and to get some interesting stuff!
