It was a great, relaxing cruise with lots of sun and water.
But before I start talking about the amazing week that was my cruise (and while I go through the pictures), I wanted to talk about a pretty cool “pen pal” system, called Foodie Pen Pals. Lindsay at The Lean Green Bean puts on this awesome program.
Once a month, you send (and receive) a package from a fellow blogger or reader, full of yummy foods!
My match this month was Kristin over at HerbiFour, and you can check out what I sent her on her blog.
My Foodie Pen Pal was Kathleen from Sweetness Hunter.
And it was a perfect box!
She sent me some great stuff. I am in LOVE with anything coffee and chocolate.
The coffee and biscuits were used right away.
For two days, I had the Texas Turtle flavored coffee, which was delicious. It was like a chocolate turtle, with the hints of caramel.
The nest two days were Vanilla Bean, and it was really good.
I have yet to use the coca powder (I’ve been doing a lot of running around lately), but I’m excited to use it and Kathleen gave me a great cookie recipe to use it in.
I won’t be taking part in Foodie Pen Pals this coming month (I’ve got a lot going on!), but I’ll probably do it again in June. It was a great experience (with some great food!)
P.S. I thought I’d throw in this outtake. I am never by myself when I’m at home.
