Ok, I had this all done and I thought it posted, but apparently not.. So I am posting it now. 😉
I got my Cara box in the mail the other day! Oh my goodness… Those that know me will know how much I loved this box. 😉
The theme for this months box was pretty much not a theme at all. It was broken down into life stages. I chose ‘in my 30’s with children’ because hey…I still qualify for that, yo. At least for a few more months. It seems like every month I was getting paired with people getting married or just recently married…which is so dang adorable…but so far away from where I am in life. It’s all good though!
I was sending to Dara at Not in Jersey. She also has three kids, two boys and a girl, just in a different order. I loved reading about all of the summer fun she planned for her kids as well as their travels! You can click on her blog to see what I sent her.
Sending to me was Nicole at Adventures of a Semper Fi Family. She has three kids too, two boys and a girl! It’s like a little club that we have going on here. 😀 She did a little snooping and asked just the right questions to put together such a great box…
This is my Cara Box for August!
Let me break that down a little for you… 🙂
This is a book I have been wanting to read forever it seems like. A lot of my friends had talked about it, and some still are actually! I knew it had to be a good one. I kept going back and forth on if I should look for it at the library or just buy it, and what do you know! I get it in my box…with a lovely book mark too! 🙂
Not sure if she knows this…but this family loves to laugh. And with Jeffy around….ESPECIALLY with Mad Libs…it is calling for non stop laughter. I can’t wait to do this as a family, hopefully when everyone is feeling better. And I always love little notebooks and cute pens! Cute pens means less chances of anyone here running off with them. 😉
This is such good timing.. I had pinned a craft on Pinterest not that long ago. See, the leaves here starting falling early this year! And of course it got me all excited for Fall..because this will only be my second time experiencing a Fall.. Anyway, I had pinned a project making a Fall leaf coaster set! Basically you get some pretty fall leaves and mod podge them on the tiles! So fun! I can’t wait to do this!!
And here we go folks…ding ding ding ding…the winner. Brownies. You can NOT go wrong with sending me a box of brownies. You could send me broken things, stinky things…but if there is a box of brownie mix in there too? I don’t care. I love me some brownies. These brownies were just the icing on the cake though.. I mean, seriously, how great was this cara box????
So, did any of you guys sign up for that round?? Are you going to sign up for this next one? It is changing to every three months now. Which is fine! It gives you more time to get to know your match, which will make for more interesting boxes! I believe the next theme is grouped into people in the same state as you are. Keep an eye out for the sign up list coming at the beginning of September!
