Have you heard about the Cara Box Exchange yet? Oh man… it was awesome. I fell upon this exchange one day when I was just surfing around Blogland. Little did I know that when I signed up for it, I would be partnered up with seriously, one of my most current favorite-blog-find-friends Whitney from The Middle of the Street. I was pretty giddy when I saw that she was my partner. In all the exchanges in all the bloglands… she showed up in mine. 😉
Anyway… Can I just say that she sent me the most spectacular box of wonderfulness!? Even Chloe was PUMPED to see what was inside the box!
Okay, so first of all, let’s just clarify that she did not go along with the “Childhood” theme. Second of all, this stuff was so awesome it didn’t matter it was not childhood toys.
Left to right…
Exhibit A. Sexiest Man Alive People Mag! Um… thank. you.
B. The sweetest note telling me how I should not be so stressed out and how all of these lovelies were here to help relax.
C. The softest, cuddliest, purple (my fave) blanket ever.
D. Chocolate. Giant Chocolates. Need I say more?
E. Balloon Animals. Well, they aren’t animals quite yet…
F. Bubble bath! Heck yes.
I would like to refer back to a couple items real quick…
The Balloons! If I was not in Switzerland right now, I would totally access my old photos to share one here. You are never going to believe this, but I am a balloon animal ninja! I spent a summer as an Activities Director in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. That summer my life revolved around sand castle contests, tie dye tshirts, and balloon animals. Totally brought back some memories.
And the blanket! Let me just say that this was the best item ever. Not only is it purple and soft but it is the PERFECT TRAVEL BLANKET. I strapped it to the back of my pack and took it along with me yesterday for the 8.5 hour flight to Europe. Oh man, this blanket was soooo much nicer than the thin, crappy, gross delta booger blankets!
Thank you so much Whitney! You rocked my socks off with this great treat! Readers – you should head over to her blog immediately and check our what I gave her… hint hint… it included a giraffe and the most candy-land-ish bandaids a girl could find.
