…and the fun of blogging and meeting new friends!
While reading the HLS recaps, I saw that some people went on a Frito Lay tour. While I don’t eat chips a whole lot, I would have wanted to tour the Frito Lay factory – I’m interested in pretty much all aspects of running a business and going behind the scenes.
I discovered that Frito Lay has some new regional products. One that caught my attention was the Garden Tomato and Basil chip. Wow – what?? Two of my favorite flavors… well, I had to get me some At Once.
Hmm. Apparently I am not in that region. What is an innovative girl to do? I hopped on twitter and offered to send a bunch of goodies in bloggie exchange if someone would send me some of those chips! 🙂
Oh, the power of twitter! I was inundated with replies, and picked the first two that offered. However, like I said, I’m not a big chip eater, so I told the lovely person #2 that I LOVE bloggie exchanges and would love to do one with her, just don’t send chips!! 🙂 So I was able to have fun with TWO bloggie exchanges – I LOVE sending fun things just as much as I love receiving! Especially with bloggers I love reading already!
Also, the lovely person number two, my friend Jessie, is having a great Mary’s Gone giveaway… go enter!
So, lovely person #1 was Amanda, of the awesome blog Vegacious. I love her blog, I love that she is vegan and also very open – obviously, to send me non-vegan potato chips!! 🙂 She is from Ames, Iowa (Amanda, are you the one and only vegan there?), and really seems like someone I would be friends with in real life. I like that. 🙂
She sent me some awesome loot!
Yes, one of the chip bags already has a clip on it. Don’t judge. I opened it immediately. You would too.
Amanda has a beautiful business card for Vegacious. I am once again impressed. 🙂
Amanda sent me some great things local to Iowa. I cannot wait to try these:
This was SO fun, thank you SO much to my new friend Amanda! I was so excited to get these goodies! 🙂
…Now, if someone is in the region of the Balsamic Sweet Onion chips, lets talk! 😉
Well, there’s a new fitness fad in town! Having a father who is from Hawaii and spending much time there myself, I could not ignore this, and I may want one…
Behold, the Hawaii Chair!
Keeping with the theme of twitter, here is an observation I had this afternoon:
Also! Today is Tuesday! If you are on twitter and are free this evening (9:pm East Coast – 6:pm West Coast) come join me! Tuesday evenings I participate in a tweet chat called FitBlog.
It was started by Katy Widrick, and is mediated by a different blogger each week. It is an hour long, and there are generally 4 – 5 questions / topics to discuss. The best way to follow along is to LOG IN here:
I have met many of my blog friends through fitblog, and I look forward each week to the fun and inspiring chat.
You do not have to have a blog to join, just a twitter account. First timers, it goes fast! You get used to it, and it is really a great time! If you follow via tweetchat, you can slow it down. Come join us!
Have a great night!
