After an anticipated wait, I finally received my Cara Box in the mail from Alicia! It is so exciting to received things in the mail, especially when 1) it’s a package! and 2) you have no idea what’s in it but you know it goes with a theme and will be filled with lovely little things that will make you smile.
For those of you who do not know what a Cara Box is, you can go here to find out. Kaitlyn started this Cara Box tradition, and I love it. It’s my first month participating and it’s been a pleasure. Shopping for/brainstorming/creating gifts for my Cara Box recipient was so much fun and a great release from schoolwork and work.
What was in my Cara Box?
- A colorful notebook/journal with the letter ‘A’ on the front!
- A pretty orange-y nail polish
- A mug
- An antibiotic lotion (much needed since I keep stealing my boss’s)
- An assortment of Lindor truffles! (So in love with Lindor.)
Thank you so much, Alicia! For all of you reading this, you should definitely check out both Kaitlyn and Alicia’s blogs. I just found an awesome crock pot chicken satay recipe on Kaitlyn’s blog today, and I can’t wait to try it! (When I finally force myself to go to the grocery store.) And Alicia’s blog is called Brew Lovin’ Mama–what ISN’T awesome about a blog written by a GIRL who LOVES craft beer? Nothing. She writes about other amazing experiences as well (such as being a mother to 5-wow!) so if you aren’t a craft beer fan, you’ll still have PLENTY to read!
