february foodie penpal reveal

I loved my box this month.

I know I’ve said that every month but it was actually a struggle not to eat everything in it in one sitting.


My package came from Meredith in South Carolina. She sent me everything good in this world. Running magazines, peanut butter and chocolate.

It was a good day.

Here’s what was in the box.


Whole Foods 365 Brand Drizzled Kettle Corn

Whole Foods 365 Brand Veggie Chips (so good!)

Women’s Running magazine

Lula’s Chocolates Dark California Toffee

2 LUNA bars

Clif Shot Bloks in tropical punch flavor (haven’t tried this flavor yet and I love trying new things)

Good Health Natural Foods peanut butter filled pretzels (too much pretzel, not enough PB but I LOVE PB so I guess I’m biased)

I portioned the veggie chips and peanut butter pretzels into single serve baggies but I’m packing up the chocolate and kettle corn to share with J when I go up to see him at Fort Benning in a few weeks. Nothing good can come out of me eating either of those alone, right?

Want your own Foodie Penpal? Sign up with Lindsay.You get a random match and someone else gets you as a match. You send out your packages by the 15th of the month ($15 spending limit plus shipping) and reveal what you got on the last day of the month. I’ve been doing this for four months now and love it but I’m taking a break next month because I’ll be too busy with J’s graduation happenings.

I’m blogging from my phone today so I dont know how well this is going to turn out. We’ll see.

We are driving up to Columbus, Georgia to search for my BFF’s dream wedding dress now. Apparently there isn’t a single bridal store in Florida that carries “the” dress so to The Peach State we go. So glad I’m not driving! :) We’re only staying for a night but I’m planning on using the hotel gym after dinner tonight.

Our friendship has been a long one and has lasted through multiple moves and different schools. Eventually we ended up at the same college.

Any tips or ideas for restaurants in the area? I’ll be back to Columbus in three weeks to see J so any tips or suggestions are appreciated. :)

the day i switched to self-hosted wordpress

Or…the day evil code demons shat all over my blog.

So I finally made the switch to self-hosted WordPress but in the process I’ve lost my theme and site design. I’m working on fixing it up and I hope to be able to show you guys a new and improved Cupcake Cardio website in a few days. Until then, bear with me. I know it looks like crap.

For those of you that are already on the self-hosted bandwagon what WordPress plug-ins do you reccomend? Also, tips? Advice?
