Cara Box Reveal

Today is the day to link up with Kaitlyn and reveal our Cara Boxes from this exchange!

I don't think that Kaitlyn could have paired me with two better girls.  I love that this time it was broken up by state.  I think that it gave us a little more to relate to considering that we all live in the same general area.

I was to send Sara her box and Marie mine.  I got to know both of these girls so well and I can't wait to continue our friendship.

A little about these wonderful ladies...
Sara is a stay at home mommy to a beautiful little princess named Lilly.  She is married to a Navy man and they are stationed down South - about 6 hours from us.  She owns an Etsy shop and is super creative.  We have so much in common and have had non-stop conversations.  I love hearing about what her little one is up to and how life is going for her and the hubs here in California.  It turns out that besides us having a ton in common, we also assume that the hubs do as well.  We have a couple of military hunters on our hands and we love them dearly.  Sara, it was such a pleasure "meeting" you and I can't wait to see where our friendship goes :)

Marie is also a stay at home mommy, but to a handsome big boy name Kayden.  Her and her husband live about 3 hours South of us and raise their little.  Marie is currently starting an education lifestyle to learn how to be a wedding coordinator.  Talk about common interests huh?  She is all things girly and fancy and what I wish I would look like after having a baby!  Marie, getting to know you has been wonderful.  I can't wait to follow you on your journey through this new education and see where your dreams take you.  Oh and to watch Kayden grow because he is just the cutest thing ever!

Now for the reveal!

Marie hit the nail on the head with the box that she sent me!  It was more than I could have asked for and hoped.  I love every single thing inside, plus the extra gift that wasn't inside but was already given to me.

1.  Cheez-Its
Oh man!  Does this girl know me or what?  I did list these on my 24 at 24 list, and even though I am 25 now, I am still addicted.  She did send me more than are in this picture, but they may have already been devoured. :)

2.  Nail Polish
Nail Polish is another weakness.  I don't know one girl who doesn't swoon over getting new nail polish and the fact that it is Essie!!!  EEEEkkkkkk!!!!!

3. Candle
Who doesn't love candles?  I love candles and can't wait to burn this one.  Plus it is my favorite color!! :)

4.  Kohl's!
AAAHHHHH!!!!!  She got me a gift card to Kohl's!  One of my favorite places to shop!  I can't believe I haven't used it yet, but I guess that is because I am trying to be budget friendly this month and know I would spend more than the gift card.  Either way, super exciting!!

5.  Blog Design
This is the one gift she gave me that wasn't in my box.  This girl designed my blog for me for free!!!  She gifted it to me as part of my box and gave it to me early!  I couldn't be more thankful!  I love how it turned out and if you are looking for a new design, check her out!!

Marie, thank you once again!  You are the sweetest and I hope you got great stuff from your other match as well!
