My First Cara Box

This month I participated in the Cara Box exchange for the very first time, and let me tell you, I think I had the best parnter EVER! Seriously, she was amazing.

I received my box from Jackie at Health, Love, and the Pursuit of Happiness.

For a couple of weeks, we emailed and tweeted back and forth while I tried to answer all of her question while she put together my box.

So, I was thrilled to receive my box earlier this week. I got home from work and there was a box waiting on my front door step. After I got that opened, this is what I found.

This month's topic was resolutions, and like nearly everyone else, some of my goals for the year are to exercise more and eat healthier. 

So, Jackie hooked me up with a water bottle to stay hydrated and a little snack box with a little ice pack in it that can be used to take some healthy snacks to work. I'm super excited about both of these!  

She also hooked me up with some healthy snacks and a little bit of chocolate, because honestly, everyone can always appreciate a little bit of chocolate!

Also, she gave me this great note pad / to do list. With this I can keep track of everything I need to do.

I had such an amazing experience with this Cara Box. Jackie was great! And I think I'll probably keep participating in this swap. I love the idea of being paired with two people and making great new bloggy buddies! 

So, thanks Jackie for this amazing box!
