I love Cara Boxes! If you haven’t participated in a Cara Box exchange you should :) This month I was paired up with two awesome ladies. I sent my Cara Box to Angela at Adorably Deranged. I have loved reading her blog this past month. One of my goals for July is to make her Mexican pizza recipe :) I had so much fun putting her box together! This month’s theme was a fair/carnival and the only thing that came to mind was the movie State Fair (one of my all time favorites!). I had a ton of fun putting a box together for Angela and her little man Drake. I don’t often get to shop for little kiddos and I went a little crazy with it :) I thought that since Drake is a little guy he might like some fair things to do with mom :) I sent sidewalk chalk ice cream cones, water baseballs, rubber duckies for the tub, and a goldfish. With the release of Monster’s University this past weekend, my sister and I knew we had to throw Mike and Sulley in the box somehow. I found an adorable onesie that looked like Mike and it said “I’ve got my Eye on You!” sooooo cute. I up-cycled one of my Erin Condren boxes and added some Meet me in Saint Louis Louis lyrics on the sides. SIDENOTE: The post office in TN wasn’t thrilled with my crazy box so I ended up having to bring it back home to ship it..booo you boring brown box people.
I received my box from Meg over at It’s Good to Be Queen :) It was such an amazing encouragement! I felt like it came from my best friend :)
It was awesome to come home from a three day vacation to see a Cara Box waiting on me :) I couldn’t wait to delve into Meg’s box. She sent me an elephant air freshner from Bath and Body Works that I had to body tackle my sister to get back. My sister is the world’s #1 Elephant Fan..she has one on her car, her toothbrush, her computer, her wall, her phone..I mean it’s ridiculous..I digress…
She sent me some awesome new polish :) I’m currently sporting the Sneak a Peak one on my toes and fingers :D It’s so cute!
I wore my scarf :) It’s a little toasty to sport it in summer so I just turned the air in my office down to accommodate it. I loved the colors! Black, gray and blue :) My typical color scheme.
Dr. Seuss Dr. Seuss Dr. Seuss! I looked all over my town for this book to send to Angela and Drake. I was jumping up and down when I saw it in the box. I promptly read it to my mom. Yes I know..I’m 20 something and reading to my mom..somethings you never out grow :)
The cookbook! I feel like I’ve gained 15lbs just looking looking through it :)
And last but certainly not least, Meg threw in a bag of gummy bears :) I”m not going to lie. I ate the whole bag..yep the whole bag. I didn’t share a single one. Greedy I know..but hey :) they were sooooo yummy!
I have definitely gained two new blog/twitter buddies this month! I love reading about their adventures, struggles and families. So if you haven’t done a Cara Box you should :) It’s a tiny little box of encouragement and an opportunity to gain new friends :)
