cara box reveal!

You may remember that I posted about Cara Box Exchange a little while ago. Well today is the big reveal! {For more info about the Cara Box - visit Kaitlyn over at Wifessionals}

I was partnered with Jen of That's What She Read. I didn't know Jen (or her blog) prior to our pairing but it has been so much fun getting to know her and reading her blog! I love her "It's OK Thursday" posts and now I also know where to turn if I ever need a good book recommendation :)

Jen sent me the sweetest box:

first look!

very sweet handmade card :)

pretty pumpkin!

pink goodies. october = breast cancer awareness month!

yummmm!!

a few goodies for norah! 

plus a pretty headband


All her gifts were so thoughtful and I'm so happy we were paired up! Thanks again Kaitlyn for organizing the exchange! I look forward to participating again :)


Norah saw the cat costume and immediately wanted to wear it, then immediately threw a fit when I tried to take her picture. I did the best I could.

I actually chased her into her room saying PLEASE just smile one time for me and this is what she did.
Future beauty queen / model / professional smiler right there.

    1. me too, jen! i forgot to mention in this post that later on (while still wearing the cat ears) norah was "helping" me fold laundry and she found her hello kitty underwear. which she then put on over her pants. it cracked me up and sparked an idea for a potential halloween costume - SUPER KITTY! she just needs a cape! hahah
