Snail Mail in the Extreme!!!

Okay so this month is almost on its way out but before it goes I want to share something super cool with you.  So not only do I like to scroll Pinterest non-stop but I also like to creep onto other blogs and check them out.  So one day I came across the awesome blog, Wifessional.  Kaitlyn was promoting her cool little monthly blogger exchange called Cara Box Exchange (best thing is you do not have to be blogger to do this).  What is so awesome about this exchange?  You get care packages in the mail!!!  Yes I mean the old fashion snail mail with a package made just for you!!!

So I decided to jump on the bandwagon this month and met 2 amazing bloggers on the journey.  See, how it works is you get paired up with 2 bloggers, one to send a package to and the other to receive a package from.  Each month there is a different theme and this month it was a “regional” theme.  Oh boy!!! Michigan made here I come!!!  Once you get your matches, you need to get the ball rolling.  Here is how I did this awesome exchange...

First I received an email from Shay introducing herself (I send a box to her).  I then emailed Gabby to introduce myself to her (she sends me a box).  After that the emails were flowing.  I got to meet some pretty awesome ladies!!!  I would love for you to meet them too, so please check out their blogs and tell them I said “hi”.   

Now for the boxing...
I sent my box to Shay with a bunch of Michigan made yumminess.  I am not going to reveal what I sent her, you will just have to go check out her blog and see what she says.

When I came home on Wednesday (it was a long day), I had this sweet little baby sitting on my porch!!!

I could not wait to open it!!!  Once I dropped all of my bags, let the dog out, I got the scissors and cut it open.  I was super giddy and could not rip through it fast enough.  Look at all of the awesome goodness I got from Gabby!!!  

This exchange was awesome and I cannot wait to do it again (maybe next month).  I first have to thank Kaitlyn from Wifessional for coming up with this idea!!!  I also have to thank Gabby for the fun gift package she sent me.  You should definitely check it out blogger or not.  Hope everyone is having a great week!!!



  1. what a great box you got! I can't wait to get mine. I'm glad we got to meet!
