Last month I did a blog gift swap called the Cara Box. I have so much going on right now I decided to skip May, till I saw the theme for the month. The theme was to send goodies from your home state. I originally thought what a great missionary and sharing experience. I got to send some to Courtney from www.unpredictableandchic22.
I also grew up near the lead guitarist for the band Imagine Dragons. I figure since he is from Utah, it counts. Read about going to their concert here. Even though Courtney is also from Utah I hope she enjoyed her Utah cara box!
Then the person sending me a cara box was Kate from New Jersey. Kate's blog is www.classylivingblog.blogspot.
I got this cute little green tea towel from her local farmers market. New Jersey is apparently the garden state, I had no idea. Then I got some yummy marinara sauce from Roselli's which is really close to her. I am excided to try it, spaghetti is a family favorite around my house.
Last but not least chocolate. I had a friend say they love Tastykakes from Philly and local surrounding suburbs. Two thumbs up from the kids and I. They are so yummy, I wish I wouldn't have shared with my kids. They are now asking me if my "blog friend" will send more.
Thanks so much Kate for all the yummy local goodies.
