When I became pregnant, I also became blog obsessed. I started following some awesome blogs and soon began to long for what they had: memories that were archived forever. I too wanted a place where I could express my feelings, record my experiences, and document all things Myles. Months and months passed by after Myles was born until I finally decided I needed to quit being a coward and just start my blog. Although I have always prided myself on being different, I can't deny that I am terrified of failure and not being well-liked/accepted. So needless to say, it was a huge deal for me to actually step into this blogging world.
Because I am so new and the blog world is already flooded with mommy blogs, I figured I needed to find ways to get involved in the community of bloggers! Fortunately, I found a great opportunity to do so when I was directed to Wifessionals by the blog gods. The blog's creator Kaitlyn came up with this awesome idea: Cara Box.
I mean what's better than making new friends, gifts in the mail, and letters of encouragement! Goldmine of an idea in my opinion. This is my second time participating.
I was reluctant to sign up again because I didn't have the greatest experience the first time. I waited a couple of months and decided to give it another try. This time, my two partners were Jessica and Katy. I enjoyed my exchange and partners so much more this time. I'm glad I decided to give it another try.
The theme for this quarter was All Things Fall.
Go check out Jessica at All Things Ripple to see what I sent her. Check out her blog as well; she has an adorable 4 month old and is always crafting up some awesome ideas!
I received my box from Katy at The Claty Baby. She is due with her first baby in December! She was an awesome partner and really paid attention to my likes and interests. Everything she sent me was completely perfect for me. It was like Christmas came early.
Here is what was in my box:
I got a couple fall decor items: towels, napkins, and a burlap pumpkin (which I adore!) And also I got this really cute flower magnet. I had to take the picture of it separately because I put it on my fridge right away. I took the picture of the other things and forgot I already put the flower up :)
She also sent some fun Halloween things! Black sparckle nail polish and sprinkles! And at first I thought the "Eat, Drink, & Be Scary" was a candle holder, which I was excited about, then when I unwrapped it, I realized it was a koozie: best Halloween item EVER! I used it immediately and it will using it year round! I don't care it's not Halloween anymore!
And here are some of the items put up in my house (taken from my Thanksgiving Decor post).
How did you guys like the Cara Box exchange this quarter?
Can't wait to see the link ups!
