Cara Box Reveal and a Sweet Husband

Hey y'all! : )

I got my Cara Box on Saturday. 
If you are wondering what the heck a Cara Box is, go here and read about it! In a nutshell, it is a fun monthly package exchange with a theme.

I was hesitant about posting about my Cara Box because of several reasons. Then I realized that the purpose of this post is not to explain how you feel about your Cara Box, but just to reveal it!

This month the theme was things starting with the letter of your partners first name.
Whitney = W

Here are the things that came in my package:

1. A scarf
2. A cute 3D puppy card
3. A puzzle book
4. Homemade canvas
5. Scratch n Sniff stickers
6. Prank Soap
7. Red Sox Planner
8. Penguin Stickers

Garrett and I did a couple of the puzzles in the puzzle book and I'm excited to trick someone with the prank soap! If you want to see what I sent my other partner, Whitney, go here!  

Garrett felt bad that my package was so late and that my partner did not follow the theme whatsoever. He kept trying to tell if I was disappointed or not but I pretty much kept quiet about it because I didn't want to complain about it to him. I ended up taking a nap that evening and during my nap, he went to Target.

I woke up, showered, and then found this:

1. Walt Disney's The Parent Trap {Y'all, I LOVE this movie!}
2. "Woah! Are these 8 ponytail holders only $1!?" 
3. "Wowza! Look how sparkly that nail polish is!"
4. "Whatever you want!" 

How perfect is he? Yeah, I'm going to get mushy. He is SO perfect! Thoughtful, funny, and handsome? How did I get so lucky?? {G- THANK YOU for the sweet surprise, it definitely brightened my day and my week! I love you!}

I'm excited about April's Cara Box, I just hope the partners I get are equally as excited to participate! 


  1. thats seriously so sweet that your husband did that!!!

  2. How sweet is he?!??!?! I'm sorry your swap was lame. I hope you get an amazing swap partner this month!!!

  3. He is so thoughtful and sweet! I love his "w" words! Haha too cute!

  4. You've got one special guy!!! Brought tears to my eyes! Hold onto him, girl!!! :)

  5. Awwww sweet Garrett! I love him! You did get some random things in your box...what I can see of the scarf looks really pretty!

  6. Gosh I like Garrett! Such a sweet hubby!!

  7. That is awesome! Well, the part that your husband gave you a very cool Cara box. Sorry the swap didn't work out for you.

  8. Awwww, he is super sweet! Glad that your partner finally followed through in sending your box, but sorry it wasn't the best. Fortunately hubby knew exactly how to make it better :)

  9. Ok, your hubby is too sweet! Love that he knew just what you needed! Way to go Garrett!

  10. when you texted me about that, I died! he is so amazingly sweet!

  11. OMG, Garrett is the sweetest!

    This made me laugh!
    "Woah! Are these 8 ponytail holders only $1!?"
    HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!!

    What an amazing surprise!!!!!!!

  12. That was really so sweet of him! Glad you haven't given up on the Cara box though. You did so well with your partner's. Hope next month is better.

  13. Oh.My.Gosh! How sweet is he?!?! Can he be cloned and shipped to Baton Rouge?!?! So sweet!!! Love the Parent Trap and pretty exciting that he got nail polish too!

  14. what a sweet husband!!! I love that!!!

  15. Oh my goodness! G is soooo sweet! I can't believe he did that! I am sorry that your Cara Box didn't turn out great but I hope this month is better!

  16. That is so cute of your husband! I quit doing swaps because I would go all out and put a lot of thought into it, only to get something that totally sucked. One time I did one that was all about getting to know the other person but you sent it to someone and you got something from someone else.. I put together this awesome box of stuff and I got.. a burlap bag. No joke! Love that he made it up to you though :)

  17. wow, sorry your partner didn't follow the theme! but go husband!!
