For my very first Cara Box exchange, I got to partner with two awesome ladies, Ashley over at Mrs.Mama and Karie over at Carrot Cake and Jeans. I first have to say that these are both extraordinary women, with absolutely precious sons! I am totally envious, as I daydream of little bitty Snyder babies running around our house...but I digress! Well, I send Ashley my first Cara Box, and you can check out her goodies over at her adorable blog.
From Karie, who happens to be in the same field as me career-wise, I received some very useful, sweet, thoughtful items. One of my resolutions is to get back in shape, and she got me her go-to snacks, that are low on the Weight Watcher point scale! I am defintely excited to try her favorite snacks! She also learned from my blog that I am a newlywed, and she got me a dry erase board to leave messages to my husb'd! So thoughtful! I am always looking for new, sweet ways to surprise him, since I usually leave for work before he does, so leaving him little messages will be a nice way to mix things up in the morning!
As a woman after my own heart - she also sent me some HOMEMADE salsa from veggies in her own garden! In addition to my own babies, I also daydream often about my own garden, which will be in the works THIS SPRING! I cannot wait to use her salsa! I am just drooling over thoughts of it on my scrambled eggs, dressing up a simple quesadilla, and on top of a tuna stuffed avacado, one of my favorite lunch items.
She also threw in some glittery items that I simple love. A sparkly, twinkly, PINK water tumbler, and some glitter polish. The girly-girl in my is sighing with happiness. I mean, what girl doesn't absolutely LOVE glitter?!
My first Cara Box experience was nothing but great! I am looking forward to keeping in touch with Ashley and Karie, and hopefully meeting new amazing women next month as I continue my blogging journey!
