This past week was the greatest week ever—why?
Because I gave and received my Cara Box, of course!
My partner was Kaitlyn [not my sister] and I loved meeting her!
I found out that we were more alike than I would have expected. It was so neat getting to know a complete stranger that lived in another state, yet having so many things to bond over [like horses].
As soon as I saw her love for horses, I knew I loved her!
I really enjoyed going on a scavenger hunt for things in this $15 price range that would be super awesome to get in a package. It was difficult at first, but my sister gave me some great advice that led me the direction for the cutest gifts [I thought]!
I sent my box off, and waited anxiously for mine!
Living in Tallahassee made me very nervous when waiting for my box. My house is in the straight up ghetto where we get random passersby asking to do chores around the house for money, or claiming they need a couple bucks for school supplies, as it’s raining outside. Packages have miraculously disappeared and our trash is always rummaged through by homeless people, so again, I was very nervous.
Worst case scenario, a bum would definitely get “The Best of Fall!”
Well, I was sitting on my couch Wednesday afternoon when I hear a random knock on our door. One of my roommates answered it and I heard an unfamiliar voice and the passing of a package from his hands to my roommates. I ran to the door to see my Cara Box and I jumped with joy…literally! I ripped it open and began pulling out all my goodies!
First was the” oh so cute” fall decorations! I love decorating our house with the upcoming holidays, and I didn’t have much for Thanksgiving. So these items immediately decorated our common area. And yes, those two little turkeys hang their legs off the edge of the table and hold tea light candles—so adorable!
Next was this little assortment of goodies. My roommates and I are always lighting candles as some motivator to do homework and what-not, and we were running low. This candle came just in time, and we have used it the past three days now! The socks are MUCH appreciated and I am actually wearing them as I am typing this up! It is the coldest it’s been this fall, and I had to warm these little toesies with these awesome socks. I absolutely loved getting these tissues with the cold weather coming and sickness imminently taunting me. With all this craziness going on and the changing of seasons and basically everyone around me sick, I have a feeling I will get sick soon, and I am well-prepared now! [fingers crossed I don’t have to use these too soon though] I also loved getting this nail polish! I love painting my nails when I not working at good ‘ol Sonny’s BBQ [it’s a ridiculous rule that takes away my sunshine]. But the days I am not working there, I will be enjoying this classy fall color on my nails. Watch out!
And the real treats! Let’s just say I still have the bowl, but the other goodies are long gone. I loved the sweets, but before eating them, I put them in this adorable bowl. The bowl may have lost its job holding these precious M&M’s, but it is now holding some peanuts that randomly appeared there. My roommates must love the bowl too!
I then got these very useful treats for writing down important notes or just giving encouragement notes to others. One is a small journal and the other is a notepad. The notepad has a magnet on the back so I put that sucker up on the fridge for all to use! There are also these precious stickers for fall time cheer! They are still safely wrapped on my desk waiting for a special person of my choosing to receive them. The problem is finding who is worthy of these special gifts.
So you are probably wondering how I could receive so many gifts with this $15…I was wondering the same thing and I have concluded that she is just plain AWESOME and a bargain shopper of course! Well guess what, this was not all she got me. I saved the best for last!
I got this pumpkin patch scratch and reveal! So freakin’ cool right? Out of everything that I got, I literally got really excited for this unique gift! As I squealed, my roommate looked at me and said, “wow, your partner must really know you.” I am proud to say I take delight in the smallest of things, and it does not take much to excite me. So thank you Kaitlyn for giving me this fun thing to consume my spare time! And I had to show you what happens when you scratch it too—it gives you the same satisfaction as scratching a lottery ticket, but you don’t win money haha.
I also got this lovely card from Kaitlyn encouraging me and saying the sweetest things! She is such a blessing and I’m so glad I met her. If any of you are doing the Cara Box next month and she is too, ya’ll should hope and pray you get magically matched up with this girl because she’s great!
Peace. Love. Cara Box.
