May Cara Box-Hometown Fun!

So if you've never participated in Wifessionals Cara Box Swap, you are seriously missing out. Each month Kaitlyn pairs up women with one another to send a box full of love and goodies. It's such a great way to connect with bloggers and I can't be the only one who loves getting mail that's isn't junk or bills.  This month's theme was such a great one that I knew I had to participate.

This month, whoever you were paired with sent you stuff from where they are from that connected with your interests too! I got to send some great Lancaster County stuff to Sarah and it was such a joy to get to know her.  See her post about what I sent her way. 

I was paired with the sweet Betsy who lives in Chicago!! She sent me the most amazing box you guys. She was so thoughtful especially when it comes to my nut allergy. She asked questions so she knew what type of goodies she could get me that wouldn't be a problem for my allergies. I was blown away by that!

Here's what Chicago goodies I received...

A postcard that Betsy sent to add my to my collection of unique "art".  I collect fun art prints and pieces locally and now I can add this!

Hot dog napkins people. Come on now. I love hot dogs. And since sending a hot dog is disgusting, this is the next best thing. Funny story-I actually have a thing for fun napkins too.

Fruity tea with the state fruit. Yum!

Local mints since she couldn't get me chocolate  because of my allergy. They smell so good, I haven't tasted one yet though.

Sweet's already on my fridge.

Planes, Trains and Automobiles-a movie about Chicago! I can't wait to watch it. 
She also sent me a sweet note and a CD of songs about Chicago or done by Chicago artists! I can't wait to listen to it.
I can't tell you how much love and thoughfulness I felt from Betsy's box. Thank you! 


  1. I loved reading about what you got in your Cara box. I am from Chicago and had the hardest time coming up with things to send my partner. I had to chuckle when I read about the hotdog napkins. I sent my partner a print out of how a Chicago-style hotdog is put together. I also mentioned how it would probably not be a good idea to send one in the mail. Ha.

    1. Oh man that would have been a good idea! Yay Chicago bloggers!
