Cara Box Reveal

Cara Box

The reveal is finally here!!  I had so much fun getting to know my partners this month – and it doesn't stop here – I’m happy to have found friends across the country in both J

You can head over to Wifessionals to get the low-down on the Cara Box.  It’s an amazing idea, so you should definitely head over to her blog and sign up for next month.  This month the theme was “Go Green” since Earth Day takes place in April, so it was fitting.  I was a little nervous about the theme at first.  I do my part on going green in some aspects, but I’m not overly natural/green/organic – so I was afraid I wasn't going to know what to get. 

Let’s start with the Cara Box I prepared.  I was teamed up with Ashley over at DashingTales.  She is so sweet and we have a lot of the same things in common. Plus her husband’s name is Daniel too (fate, I know)! Go check her blog out! Of course, I was so worried about getting her box out in the mail, that I didn't snap a picture of her contents. So this picture is courtesy of Ashley.

     Rainbow Cookies from Ukrops – our {former} local grocery store’s bakery.  They are amazing and have the color green in them.  I wanted to put a little something from Richmond in the box and who doesn't love a good cookie?!
            Green Sharpie – who doesn't love sharpie’s too? And it’s green. Done and done
            2 recycled material notebooks - Ashley’s favorite color is pink, so I incorporated that with a pink notebook. 
    Green Dog toy – For the doggy child in her life J
           Teal Earrings & nail polish – I wanted to throw in some girly items, and even though teal isn't technically green, it’s close enough.
    Recycled Avery Label Stickers – I just thought these were cute, and Ashley loves to organize, so I figured they would come in good use.
    Clothespins with stamped saying on them – I stalked her pinterest and found that she had pinned something similar.  So I went the craft route and crafted her up some

My other partner was Kaara over at In the Kitchwith Kaara.  She’s so nice and I’ve learned so many interesting things about her – she’s a goat mama! I can’t wait to learn more about her recipes, house renovations, and animals. Go Check her out too!  Kaara did such a great job with her box which was so thoughtful.

   Vegetable Seeds -I had told her Daniel and I wanted to start a garden this year, so she sent me several vegetable seeds to get us started! So sweet!
A re-usable bag.  Can never have enough of those!
   Meyer’s hand soap.  A new product I’ve never tried, but I’m sold!

        Burts Bees lip balm and cocoa butter – two things I use everyday J
        A teal mug. I love coffee and our kitchen has teal aspects in it, so it’s perfect.
        Fun designed towels, so we can be more green and not use as many paper towels (which she had no clue, but we use a TON of paper towels)
        A coffee mug wrap (is that what you call them?) It’s way cuter than the cardboard looking ones, so it’s a win for sure!

I had so much fun this month and I can’t wait to participate again!
