My Buddy Box + Senior Night

     A few weeks ago, my cross country team headed up to New Hampshire to race. Along with racing, we also exchanged "buddy boxes," which are basically decorated boxes stuffed with goodies. The person I got wanted a monkey theme and if you wanted to see how I decorated her box, click here. It turns out that the person who I made a box for also made a box for me! What a coincidence! The theme I chose for my box was Hello Kitty or Fahrenheit. Most of you know who Hello Kitty was, but you might not know who Fahrenheit is. Well, Fahrenheit was a Chinese band. (was since they are broken up now) All the members are super cute and they're music is amazing!
 Here is what my buddy box looked like =) 

Fahrenheit Wu Chun
The guys there are from Fahrenheit! 
Hello Kitty Themed Box

I did not expect anyone to know who Fahrenheit was and therefore only expected a Hello Kitty Box. When I took my box out of it's bag, I nearly screamed because I saw them on it! I love Fahrenheit (especially Wu Chun) and I couldn't believe that she took the time to look them up and place it on my box for me! Everyone on the team is just so sweet! Not only was the outside of the box amazing, the inside of it was quite creative! For the mini candies, she came up with the idea of taping it to the lid. 

Candy Mini Fun Size

There were a few more pieces of candy attached, but I got hungry so I ate some of it before taking a photo. I was anticipating taking photos of my box the day after I got home, but that didn't quite happen. The first thing I did when I got home was sleep... zzzz .  Then I procrastinated and these photos were taken about 5 days after I got back. Sadly, some of the candy did not last till then, so I might be showing some candy wrappers instead hehe. 

Box Of Candy
I love gummy bears as you can tell from the empty bag hehe. 
Aside from all the candy I got (and sugar high that night), I also received some super cute items. In real life, I am quite an indecisive person. When it comes it decisions, I cannot make them to save my life. When I had to write down what I wanted in my box,  I literally wrote down "cute things." I didn't have anything I really wanted and I just couldn't come up with anything so I wrote down cute things. I was hoping that the person who got me would know me "better than myself," and she did! I loved everything I got in my box! 
My box came with so much jewelry and hair accessories which I love.  

Forever 21 Jewelry Haul

Hello Kitty Hair Bands/ Bobby Pins

The jewelry pieces are all so pretty! She knows me so well because I love forever 21 and I love bracelets/necklaces. I really love that set of bangles in the pink bag and the heart shaped necklace in the purple bag. They are so pretty. I also received a set of hair ties. Apparently these are the new hair ties that don't leave a crease in your hair. . interesting =)  Along with the hair ties, I got a set of bobby pins, Hello Kitty themed of course! 


I have to say that the best thing I got in my buddy box though was this scarf!! As soon as I saw this scarf, I immediately stopped looking through the box and put it on. It is the cutest thing ever. In fact, I wore this scarf to school the next Monday because I loved it so much! 
Last week was extrememly tiring for me cross country/running wise because I had a meet last Tuesday, then a race in New Hampshire on Sat., and another meet that following Tuesday. I felt like I spent more time with the team between running and pasta parties then I did with anybody else! Any extra time I had was dedicated to HW and sleep! On the last Tuesday meet, it was the last home meet for the seniors =( It was extremely sad and exciting for me. I am going to miss everybody. I know I saw this all the time, but it's because it's true.

Senior Night Cross Country Roses

Senior Night Cross Country Roses

As a senior, I was presented with a rose at the end of our meet by our Juniors. This was followed by a mini celebration for us with a huge cake! Thar day was even better since we found out we had won that meet!! So far we are 4-0, meaning we have won 4 meets and have not lost once! I hope we can keep this up! 

Senior Night Cross Country Roses
This is what I look like after a super busy week! 
What do you think of my buddy box? Have any of you heard of Fahrenheit before?
Have any of you tried the ceaseless hair ties before?

  26. Aww buddy boxes is a really cute idea. I love everything you got, it seems like she put a lot of time and effort into making your box. I've never heard of Fahrenheit in my life. Lol. It's cool that she found out who they were and made them part of your box. I haven't tried creaseless hair ties because I'm somewhat critical of them and not quite sure if they would actually work. Let us know how you liked them!!

    1. Thanks!! It is very cute!!
      I bet she did put a lot of effort into this box. It really shows and I greatly appreciate it! hehe, I am a bit critical of them too , but they seem to work well! They don't leave and creases, but for running I still prefer traditional hair ties because they feel more secure. (or maybe it's just in my head)
