January Cara Box Reveal {Link Up}

28 January 2013

It's time to fess up!
Have you been following your New Year's Resolutions?!

Today is the day for all of the lovely ladies who participated in this month's Cara Box Exchange to reveal their amazing boxes!

If you want to know more about the Cara Box Exchange, click on the tab at the top of my blog (:

January's theme was "Resolutions".
Everyone was supposed to get to know their partners and create a box that would encourage each other to follow the Resolutions they made for themselves.

My beautiful partners were Colby & Melissa.
I got to know Colby and sent her a box (you can visit her blog to see what I sent her!)
Melissa got to know me and created a special package to keep me in line with the promises I made to myself.

I was SO excited to rip open my box. I basically gave Melissa a whole list of Resolutions so I had no idea what she chose to include!

For My "Start Running" Resolution: "An armband for your iPhone so you can run & jam simultaneously, gum so you don't get dry mouth, hair ties to keep those lovely locks out of your face, chapstick to prevent windburn, and a running magazine with beginner's tips!"

For My Healthy Eating Goals: The BEST marinade ever, snacks and some healthy handwritten recipes.

For My "Keep The Honeymoon Stage" Resolution: A homemade date jar.

Ok, so I could not believe how thoughtful Melissa was. She made this jar and attached a note that says:

Red: $$ & Planning
Yellow: $
Blue: At Home Dates

She came up with SO many creative and fun ideas.

I loved my box!!!
Getting to know Melissa was such a blessing. I got to video chat her twice and I am so glad that we are now closer bloggy friends. She put so much love and energy into encouraging me and sending me this package.

So what did you get in your box?!
Link up below and show off your resolutions!!!
Keep an eye out for the February Cara Box announcement on February 1st - it's going to be an AWESOME theme (:
