Cara box reveal! Duh Duh Duh!!!!




I mentioned Friday that I was going to post my Cara Box Reveal this weekend.
I was matched with two amazing ladies and so very lucky.   I got to get presents for Jessica at A Different Kind of Plan who is a soccer fan from Massachusetts. She has the cutest puppy and a love for Mexican food.  How adorable is she???
On the opposite end of the country I got presents from Rawwyn @ Be a Warrior Queen who lives in the LA area and loves sports including BASEBALL!!! Relax Rangers Nation, this girl is cool.  She is a Dodgers fan!! (I didn't even bring up the Laker love....whoops!)    

I was actually very skeptical nervous about this process when I signed up.  All of the blog friends I have, I pretty much had before I started a blog and met on Twitter and/or are my real life friends.  I didn't know how this was going to work out.   Well, it worked out lovely!   These two wonderful ladies and I have been exchanging emails for the last several weeks and getting to know each other.   Now, to be fair...I was really nervous when I saw the theme was green.  Not the color green...I would have been all over that.  No, the Earth Day, Save the Planet kind of green.  I suck  need to be better at recycling and reusing and well...being green. (Insert 'It's not easy being green' joke here.)



Yes...I take pictures sideways! I am the Pablo Picasso of iPhone cameras.
Don't ask me how I forgot to get a bigger photo of the body wash.  It smells so yummy!  I love showers even more now!!!


This water bottle rocks!! Put tap water in, get yummy filtered water out!



This almost makes me want to do laundry.  Almost!




Raewyn made this and I can't explain how yummy this smells.  I don't know how she knew I loved COCONUT!!!



A baseball! She sent me a baseball! 



So I could make myself one of these AWESOME bracelets!!! I mean seriously awesome!




This letter was the absolute best.  I may have gotten a little teary eyed.  (Yes, I am a sap!)
This process has been amazing.  I don't really know how I could have picked better blog friends for myself if I had tried.  Raewyn encourages me to be a Warrior Queen and Jessica makes me want to try to watch a soccer game.  Just one.  They both make me laugh and I absolutely love their blogs!  They are now members of my very exclusive *'Favorites' section of bloglovin and I look forward to seeing what is going on with their lives as Raewyn plans her wedding and Jessica and Moose make their way through well, Moose's trials of puppyhood!

*I follow way too many blogs to keep up with daily so the 'Favorites' is reserved for people I read every single day. .  


If you can't stand the excitement and want to do your own Cara Box exchange you can sign up at Wifessionals Cara Box Exhange Here!  I was hesitant to do this but I will do it again.  I can't imagine it getting any better though.  Love these ladies!

*lovin Grrrrr...that darn auto correct.

Laura @Simply Me, The way I see it said...

OMG, baseball loving girls are the best! Now you have me curious! I am going to run over and check out your blog. Thanks for dropping by! :)

Bekah @ re·solve said...

I hope the box won you over to the green side :) The bracelet is a pretty cool idea!

Laura @Simply Me, The way I see it said...

Thanks for dropping by! I have been debating on making that bracelet off Pinterest for a long time so now I have no excuses. I am trying to be better being green. I actually use a water filter at home already to avoid all the plastic and reusable cups but I guess it is time to stop being lazy about paper plates and just do dishes! LOL
