The one where I got my first Cara Box

I got my first Cara Box!! I was so thrilled to see this sitting at my desk at work that I could barely wait till I got home to go through it and to document for you, all of my lovely bloggy friends, what I received! 

Cara Box

This was my first month doing the Cara Box exchange hosted by Kaitlyn at Wifessionals. Hats off to her for keeping this so well organized! Since this was my first exchange, I was linked up with two other new ladies; Kiera, stay at home mom of two with a phd in chemistry (How cool is she?!) and Whitney, an interior designer with quite an eye for spaces and design taste that will rock your world.
This month's theme was "Going Green" I was initially very thrown off of what to get for Kiera and had to do a LOT of brain storming. I finally nailed down to a few ideas and went on a hunt. I knew that her favorite things were her two adorable boys, so I wanted to incorporate them somehow. I got her some seeds for flowers and fruit she could plant with them along some gardening gloves. I also found a few more "green" items like a notebook full of recycled paper and my personal favorite, a filtered Brita water bottle because those things are the best. 

After finally getting my cara box shipped out, I was getting really anxious to see what Whitney was able to come up with for the theme -- it was a hard one! Here is what I found wrapped inside my box when it arrived. I was so ready to tear into it! :)

Whitney sent me an assortment of seeds, water bottle, and notebook as well!

These are colored pencils! How neat!

My personal favorite -- this gorgeous green arm candy from her Etsy store! Thank you Whitney, I love it all!!
