April CaraBox Opening!

I was introduced to the Cara Box when I first started following the blog Wifessionals. Kaitlyn came up with the idea and put extensive research into making it become a reality. 

Cara Box


I was paired with Julie of Inviting Nest. She emailed me immediately and we hit it off right away. She asked some amazing questions to be able to really pick things she thought I'd like. Let me tell you, she did an amazing job! The main question Julie asked me what my goals were in regards to going green and she also read little blog of mine. 

I told her that I was really busy and needed a way to be able to take healthy snacks and food with me when I left the house. When I leave in the mornings, I often don't return until late at night. Anytime between 7p and 11p, depending on the day. That was really all the information I gave Julie and she took it and ran!



Julie included three second hand books that she has read and highly recommended. I've been looking for more books and can't wait to read these ones! In the Grip of Grace // The Poisonwood Bible // Captivating


I received my first ever bento box, which even came with a spoon and a fork; a flower punch that I totally plan on using for fruit and veggies; and a little salad dressing bottle. Everything is so perfect for the goals I'm trying to meet in the paleo journey I'm on right now!


Julie included SIX recipes for yummy, yet healthy snacks. The recipes are for the following: Giant Whole Wheat Apple Oat Cookies, Vanilla Granola, Strawberry and Banana Four Grain Granola, Apple Muffins, Cake Batter Energy bars, and Brownie Batter Energy Bites. They all sound SO delicious, and I can't wait to try them out! I will most definitely be doing recipe posts, as long as Julie is okay with it. She also gave me a little mousepad calendar so I can plan out my meals and snacks. 

The note Julie included with my items was incredibly special and motivating. Julie, thank you for making my first ever Cara Box experience an amazing one!

I got to send items to Ashley! Check her blog to see what I got her!

Captivating is a great read! The men's version, Wild at Heart is also excellent!
