April 2014 Citrus Lane (24 Months)

April 2014 Citrus Lane (24 Months)

Yay! WB’s April 2014 Citrus Lane box is here! He’s 24 month-old, so that is age this box is for.  We also received a box for a 47 month-old boy (I always get two Citrus Lane boxes a month), but it was exactly the same as this one, so I won’t do a review on it!  I have to say, it’s super rare that the boxes are totally the same for those age groups and this may be the only time I have ever seen it!

If you aren’t familiar, Citrus Lane is a monthly subscription box for babies from 0 to 5 which contains four or more products selected especially for the age and stage of your child. Citrus Lane  is $29/month, but right now (through 4/22/14) they are having their semi-annual sale which gives you 44% off an annual subscription making it only $16.33/month!!

The Box

Citrus Lane ships via FedEx Smart Post and took the standard week to arrive.  It was scheduled to arrive tomorrow, so I was lucky to see it today!

April 2014 Citrus Lane (24 Months)

First Look

I’d seen various spoilers for this month’s Citrus Lane, but I wasn’t totally sure what we’d be getting for WB’s age group.  I was totally thrilled when I saw this first look because I knew it would be perfect for him!

April 2014 Citrus Lane (24 Months)

The Information Card

In honor of Earth Day which is this month, the April 2014 Citrus Lane box included products from partners who focus on eco-friendly design and items that seem to give a nod to the changing season.  Here is what was included:

~Tools & Things from Green Toys (~$10): I think this set is exclusive to CL, so I just estimated the price.  I know want the entire Green Toys toolset!  WB is getting to the age where he wanted to “help” B and I out with things, so this is perfect timing.  Also, why aren’t all screwdrivers labeled like this?  I recall many times my Dad telling me to get a phillips screwdriver and I was all huh?  Which one is that?

April 2014 Citrus Lane (24 Months)

Tools & Things from Green Toys

~Set of 2 Tumblers from Green Toys ($5.99): So funny, but I just ordered a bunch of Green Toys cups and plates and bowls.  WB has perfected drinking out of a cup and it’s all he likes to drink out of now, so I figured we better stock up!

April 2014 Citrus Lane (24 Months)

Set of 2 Tumblers from Green Toys

~Prince’s Bedtime Book & CD Set from Barefoot Books ($9.99): It’s possible we have this book, but I don’t know where it would have come from and I don’t know where it is right now!  It if it a duplicate I will pass it along to my mom to keep at her house or to have up north this summer.

April 2014 Citrus Lane (24 Months)

Prince’s Bedtime Book & CD Set from Barefoot Books

~Lemon Verbena Dish Soap from Mrs. Meyers Clean Day (~$0.50): I was under the (wrong) impression that Meyers soap was expensive.  I clearly was wrong!  I use Honest Co. stuff, but I do like the smell of this more and may have to make the switch every once in a while.

April 2014 Citrus Lane (24 Months)

Lemon Verbena Dish Soap from Mrs. Meyers Clean Day

~Greeting Card Offer from Treat ($1): This offer is good for one free card from Treat which we will totally use.  Maybe B will make me one with this code for Mother’s Day!

April 2014 Citrus Lane (24 Months)

Greeting Card Offer from Treat

All totaled I came up with a value of $27.48 for the April 2014 Citrus Lane box.  Boxes are $29/month if you opt for the month-to-month option, however, like I mentioned before you can get an annual subscription for $16.33/month right now (through 4/22) which is for sure the way to go!  I would have picked the Green Toys stuff on my own and I will be using the coupon code included to pick up some more Green Toys things (FYI: Green Toys has amazing customer service).

Did you get a Citrus Lane this month?  What age did you get and what came in your box?  If you are interested in subscribing, click here.  Like I mentioned you can take advantage of their semi-annual sale or if you just want to try a box, you can use the coupon code “TAKE20OFF” to save $20 off your first box!  That would make your first Citrus Lane box $9 which is a complete steal!!! You will be enrolled in a monthly subscription (which you can always cancel if you are not happy), but it’s totally an amazing way to try them out!

Friday iPhone Dump

Fridayiphonedump
Friday iPhone Dump is simply a summary of your week in iPhone (or whatever) pictures! Feel free to link up if you want to share!

Recently Updated1

1. It’s totally a 2 year-old thing to want to help unload the dishwasher isn’t it?  L will do it, but WB likes doing it!  And note that he is standing on the dishwasher door in this picture. It’s the only way he can reach the top!  Oh and B, don’t yell at him or me about how this could break the dishwasher.  He’s cute.  And helpful.

2. When you are sick and not in the mood to eat, but need to eat something, well it calls for a muffin tin meal.  And it worked.  L was happy and eating, which made me happy.

3. We were at CVS way too long waiting on L’s prescription earlier in the week and were quickly running out of things to do in there.  So L tried on about a dozen pairs of sunglasses and made me take his picture.  LOL!!!  And yes, he is sick in this picture.  I swear this was 10 minutes after we left the doctors.  #motrinforthewin

Recently Updated12
4. OMG if you have a Lego lover at your house and don’t have this Family House yet, you must get it. It is the coolest lego set ever.  At least I think so.  It has a light inside that really turns on, the house opens and if you get bored with this set up, you can build it two other ways .  So cool.

5. I wanted to get a picture of Baxter, but no, WB had to stick himself right in there! Now if I would have asked WB to stand there first he would have ran away.  Figures!

6. I am pleased to report that this snow has all melted and also pleased that we broke the snow record.  And shhh, don’t tell anyone, but I’d like to get over 100 inches this year.  I think we’d need 4-6 more?  Come on Michigan, we can do it!

Recently Updated13

7. How B got this car to fit in the garage is beyond me.  It fits.  Our stuff fits.  And our other two cars fit.  I have to hand it to him.  He did it.

8. Tell me this guy doesn’t think his big brother hung the moon? And to WB he did.  He’s the funniest, builds the best train tracks and makes funny farting noises.  What’s not to love?

9. It’s been a long week and this is happening today.  Maybe once.  Maybe twice.  B said I need to use his birthday reward.  Challenge accepted!!

How was your week?  What’s up for the weekend? Any big plans?

April 2014 Googaro Review + Coupon Code(s)

Googaro
Cost: $35/month
Ships To: United States and APO/Military addresses.
April 2014 Googaro

April 2014 Googaro

Googaro, who kindly sent me this box to review, arrived today! is a monthly subscription box for babies 0-3 years of age.  Each month Googaro sends selects mom-approved items for you and baby straight to your door. You’ll receive some of their favorite finds including toys, books, snacks, and household products.

April 2014 Googaro

The Box

Googaro shipped via DHL this month and took just about a week to arrive. Last month they shipped via USPS Priority Mail, so I don’t know if this was just a test with DHL to see how they liked it or if this is the new way. I, of course like Priority Mail better but I am sure this is a nice savings for them.

April 2014 Googaro

First Look

I hadn’t seen any spoilers for this month’s box, but I was hoping it would include at least a few thing I could put in his Easter basket or give to him for this birthday.

April 2014 Googaro

The Information Card

Googaro doesn’t have a monthly theme, however, they have a fabulous information card with pictures, descriptions and prices.  I wasn’t sure if this is the 1-2 year-old box or the 2-3 year old box, but then I looked on the information card and saw the “1-2 Years” printed on the side.  I have never noticed this before and totally answered my question!  Here is what was included:

~Bumkins Wet / Dry Bag ($14.95): I have a few of these, but this is by far my favorite pattern of the bunch!  And when you are on vacation or at the splash pad in the summer you need these!

April 2014 Googaro

Bumkins Wet Bag

~Kandoo Travel Pack Wipes ($4.37):  I have read way too many articles about flushable wipes, so we won’t be flushing these at our house, but we can always always use wipes.  My kids are going to be teenagers and I swear I am going to be wiping these faces with baby wipes.

April 2014 Googaro

Kandoo Travel Pack Wipes

~Interactive Kids Soft Shape Puzzle ($12.99): This set includes 8 different puzzle which are perfect for the bathtub. This is headed straight in WB’s Easter Basket and will be awesome in the tub.  I am always looking for new bathtub toys that don’t get all moldy and nasty and this fits the bill!

April 2014 Googaro

Interactive Kids Soft Shape Puzzle

~Happy Yogis Organic Fruit ($3.59): Another Easter basket item!  WB loves these and I don’t buy them a ton because they disappear so quickly (and aren’t cheap).  He’ll be thrilled!

April 2014 Googaro

Happy Yogis Organic Fruit

~Baudelaire Essence Soap Bar ($5): The subscription box world wants me to use bar soap and drink tea don’t they?  Ha!  I know own both a soap dish and a soap sack, so bar soap is much more appealing to me.

April 2014 Googaro

Baudelaire Essence Soap Bar

All totaled I came up with a value of $40.90 for the April 2014 Googaro box!  Not the most exciting Googaro ever, but very usable for sure!  Did you get a Googaro box this month?  What’d you think?  And if you got a different age group box (they do 0-6 months, 6-12 months, 1-2 years and 2-3 years), what was in it?

If you are interested in learning more or signing up, click here.  Googaro starts at $35/month, but you can use the coupon code “APRIL20” to save 20% off your ENTIRE subscription!  That would bring the cost of an annual subscription down to $25.67/month which is a great deal! Or if you are new to Googaro and just want to try one month, you can head over to Plum District (for the next few days anyway) and get your first box for only $20 (a $35 value)!

Friday’s Letters

Dear B, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!! I know I didn’t plan anything or get you a card (like you care), but know that I am hoping you have a fabulous fabulous day!  And since you get to hang out with the boys and I, I know you will ;).

Dear L, Umm, I know you weren’t really still that sick yesterday and I let you stay home anyway. You were milking your illness and I can appreciate that.  And I liked having a chill day with you boys. But it’s not happening again. At least not this year anyway ;).

Dear My E-mail, Why do you keep showing as new mail in the corner of my screen even know you arrived 4 hours ago? It makes so sense and is super annoying. Also, why do I have 12948 messages in my Apple Mailbox? I don’t really have those e-mails and I am sick of that giant number looking at me.

Dear My Pregnant Friend Due in Days, How about you have this baby already?  Because I am dying for some newborn snuggles.  Come on baby!

Dear Zappos, You are amazing.  It’s like you know what I want to order before I even order it.  You are the best.  And thanks to Ryan over at Fox Tales and Ponytails, I learned that you have an Outlet store.  Stop it.  I sense a field trip to KY!

Dear Prince George, You must be the most well behaved baby ever.   You are the star of this trip.  How you never lose your mind with all these strangers in your face is beyond me,  but you don’t.

Dear Throwback Thursday, You are my favorite Facebook feature ever.  It’s becoming a game of who can post the more riduclous old school picture ever and I love every second of it.

Dear Parenthood, I love you.  You are such a good show.  I still need to go back and catch up with all those seasons I missed, but I am hooked.

Dear B (again), Umm, no, I did not collect call you from jail the other day.  What?  What goes on on your cell phone anyway?  I did get a kick out of it when you called me after you got that call and asked me where I was.  Umm, the mall?  Oh, so you aren’t in jail then?  Umm, no.  Pretty sure they don’t let you sit in your cell and chat on your cell phone.  Just saying.  #wrongnumber #hopetheygotanothercall

Dear WB, Total is your last day of being 1.  Enjoy it.  It’s hard to remember what life was like without you little guy.  Certainly much much calmer.  And clearly not as fun.

April 2014 Bespoke Post “Maker” Review + Discount!

Disclosure: This post contains referral links.
Bespoke Post
Cost: $45/month
Ships To: US, Alaska, Hawaii, and Canada. They will also ship to military addresses upon e-mail request.
April 2014 Bespoke Post - "Maker"

April 2014 Bespoke Post – “Maker”

I didn’t even have a chance to track my April 2014 Bespoke Post box before it appeared in my mailbox today! I really wasn’t expecting it, but was happy to see it. The April selections were “Weekender” and “Maker“. There was no question we were opting for Maker! They also had “Shelter“, “Swagger“, “Made“, and “Aged” available if you weren’t interested in the two new options.

In case you aren’t familiar with them, Bespoke Post delivers fresh and interesting lifestyle brands and products to men. Each month, you’ll get to choose from their limited-edition boxes filled with an array of products built around a central, unique theme. Don’t want one that month? Just skip the month (you can opt out during the first 5 days of the month) and you won’t be charged.

April 2014 Bespoke Post - "Maker"

The Box

Bespoke Post ships via USPS through Newgistics. Like last month, this month’s box took only three days to arrive. I don’t know what is happening to make all my packages arrive faster, but I like it!

April 2014 Bespoke Post - "Maker"

First Look

I should have saved this box for B to open tomorrow on his birthday, but I couldn’t help myself.  I wanted to check it out for myself!  Oops ;).

April 2014 Bespoke Post - "Maker"

The Information Card

As I mentioned, we opted for the “Maker” box for our April Bespoke Post.  It’s described as being “for the hard working, do it yourself-types with an eye for quality and style”.  Here is what was included:

~Able Workman’s Apron: This was custom-designed for Bespoke Post and is 100% American made.  No joke, B wears an apron every time he cooks so this was made for him.  He only has one (it was from Birchbox) and it is going to be nice (for me) to add another one in the rotation so I am not always washing it!  This apron has leather straps and is made from a water repellent canvas duck.

April 2014 Bespoke Post - "Maker"

Able Workman’s Apron

~Old Mansion Foods Spices: Bespoke included spice blends that work with pretty much anything you are thinking of grilling.  Monterey is good for chicken, fish and vegetables.  Seven, which is “salty and sharp” works with “anything and everything”.  And Expresso, which is best with rich red meat and buttery potatoes.  I cannot wait to try the Express one with some red skin potatoes and steak.  Mmmmm.

April 2014 Bespoke Post - "Maker"

Old Mansion Foods Spices

~Outdoor Gourmet Cedar Wraps: I was a little confused by these at first.  I thought it was suppose to a plank and thought, well, this is so flimsy it’s never going to work.  Once I read that it was a wrap it makes much more sense.  The wraps are paper-thin sheets of cedar that can be used on the grill or oven, while infusing them with cedar flavor and steam.  Sounds amazing right?  Please let it be grilling weather this weekend!

April 2014 Bespoke Post - "Maker"

Outdoor Gourmet Cedar Wraps

I couldn’t do a cost breakdown on this box since the apron is a Bespoke Post exclusive.  As usual this was another great box for us (otherwise we wouldn’t have ordered it) and I am ready to see what they do next!  I am kind of hoping for a grooming or fashion one!

What do you think of Bespoke Post?  Did you get a box this month?  Which one?  Interested in subscribing or just want to learn more?  Click here and check out what boxes they have available.

And just a heads up, for the next few days (thru the morning of 4/21 I believe), Bespoke Post is on Rue La La where you can score a one month subscription for $34 (a $45 value) or a 3-month subscription for $99 (a $135 value)!  Bespoke would make a fabulous Father’s Day gift and it’s never too early to start shopping!!!

April 2014 Snoop Dogg Fancy Box Review + Coupon Code

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.
Fancy Box
Cost: $42/month + $7.95 S/H.
Ships To: Worldwide via FedEx.
April 2014 Snoop Dogg Fancy Box

April 2014 Snoop Dogg Fancy Box

Don’t ask me why (no really don’t because I have no idea), but I was so excited for the arrival of my April 2014 Snoop Dogg Fancy Box today.  When I heard he was one of the new curators for Fancy Box, I knew I had to get the box.  For Shizzle!

Just in case you aren’t familiar, Fancy, offers monthly subscription boxes which range in price from $39/month – $42/month plus shipping. They have a “regular” Fancy Box full of cool goodies and celebrity curated boxes which include a collection of the coolest products hand-picked by Jennifer Love Hewitt, Verbal, Kelly Rowland, Coco Rocha, Snoop Dogg and / or Tyler Florence. They also offer a Fancy Food Box (which is one of my favorites).

April 2014 Snoop Dogg Fancy Box

The Box

Fancy Box ships via FedEx and took, yep, two days to arrive. This box promised to arrive by 4/20 (of course it did) and you had to be 18+ years of age to purchase it (I barely qualified for that – LOL). I think the age requirement sealed the deal for me. That and the fact that Fancy has a disclaimer on their site releasing themselves from any liability which results from using these products. So buy and use at your own risk people.

April 2014 Snoop Dogg Fancy Box

First Look

Totally laughed when I peeked in the box.  It was exactly what I expected from this box!

April 2014 Snoop Dogg Fancy Box

The Information Card

The April 2014 Snoop Dogg (whatever happened to Snoop Lion) Fancy Box totally had a “green” theme to it.  I don’t know if it’s going to continue along these lines, but I’ll be finding out.  The information booklet was exactly like the Kelly Rowland one and wasn’t the individual information cards that we’ve been getting in the past.  One thing is for sure, I am 100% certain that Snoop personally picked these items out.  Here is what was included:

~How High Am I? Journal ($9): OMG, this is hysterical.  It has room for all your brilliant ideas and also has a section for what you are snacking on.  Ha!!!!

April 2014 Snoop Dogg Fancy Box

How High Am I? Journal

~Fire Bucket Ashtray ($18): I posted a picture of this box on Facebook and my SIL right away commented on how cool this ashtray was (and no, she doesn’t smoke).  I am going to use this in WB’s room – it’s firetruck themed.   Who in the world would have thought that a Snoop Dogg box would have the perfect item for a 2 years old room in it?

April 2014 Snoop Dogg Fancy Box

Fire Bucket Ashtray

~Solopipe ($70): I had no idea what this thing was and had to reference the information booklet and then the internet.  Basically it’s a lighter / tobacco pipe in one.  I had no idea such a thing existed.  Why would I?  But still.  B has a friend of school who I hear would enjoy this, so off to him it will go!

April 2014 Snoop Dogg Fancy Box

Solopipe

~High Times 4-20 Issue ($5.99): I am totally going to read these articles (why not?), but what struck me most was that this publication has been around for 40 years!  That is amazing!!

April 2014 Snoop Dogg Fancy Box

High Times 4-20 Issue

~100 Dollar Bill Napkins ($7): These are some expensive napkins (you only get 10 in a package), but I guess it’s a bit expensive to wipe your face with hundreds now isn’t it?  L will get a complete kick out of these, so I am going to surprise him with them at dinner.

April 2014 Snoop Dogg Fancy Box

100 Dollar Bill Napkins

~Snoop Dogg Cone (~$3): I am not having much luck coming up with a link for this exact item, but I have located many Snoopy Snow Cone machines (totally different search idea google)!  If you use these I am sure you know what they are for.

April 2014 Snoop Dogg Fancy Box

Snoop Dogg Cone

All totaled I came up with a value of $112.99 for the April 2014 Snoop Dog Fancy Box.  The box itself was $49.95 ($42 + $7.95 shipping) so obviously the value was there.  While I am not going to use many of the items, it’s basically what I expected and I had to get this box to check it out!  I am planning on getting it in May as well because I don’t believe that will have a green “theme” like one did and I can’t wait to see what he picks!

Did you get the April 2014 Snoop Dogg Fancy Box Fancy Box?  What’d you think? If you are thinking of ordering this or ANY of the Fancy Boxes, click here and get on it! You can always use the coupon code “FOLLOWUP10″ to save 10% on any Fancy.com, order, including subscription boxes. If you can’t find the Fancy Box you are looking for, I suggest just doing search for “Fancy Box“. It’s much easier than trying to navigate their site.

April 2014 Kiwi Crate Review – “Rainforest” + Coupon Code

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.

Kiwi Crate
Cost: $19.95/month.
Ships To: United States and Canada.

April 2014 Kiwi Crate

April 2014 Kiwi Crate

Our April 2014 Kiwi Crate arrived this week and it could not have come at a better time. L is (was?) sick, so we needed something to do inside that was calm, but still fun.

If you aren’t familiar, Kiwi Crates are designed around fun themes and filled with all of the materials and inspiration for hands-on projects for kids ages 3-7. L is 5 (almost 6) and is getting to the point where he can be more in charge of the project and is able to follow along on the instructions better and better each month.  I think he’s going to love it when he takes charge of the projects and can help WB do them! It won’t be too long.

April 2014 Kiwi Crate

The Box

Kiwi Crate ships via FedEx Smart Post. It came in record time this month. I think it took maybe four or five days. It’s usually a week, so this was amazing.

April 2014 Kiwi Crate

First Look

I couldn’t remember what the theme was when I got the box out for L and I to do, but it came back to me when I opened it up!  And I knew he’d be into it.

April 2014 Kiwi Crate

April Kiwi Crate Theme

Our April 2014 Kiwi Crate theme was “Rainforest” and included two projects – “my jumping frog” and “my rainstick”.  Kiwi Crate now sends a variety of different crates to subscribers (as many as eight different crates are circulating each month per Kiwi Crate) so you may or may not have received the same crate I did this month.  Some subscribers will receive Rainforest this month, while others will receive a crate sent out in a previous month. I have subscribed for almost two years so I always get the “new” crate because I have already received most all of their other ones.

Project #1: My Jumping Frogs:

April 2014 Kiwi Crate

Project #1: My Jumping Frogs

April 2014 Kiwi Crate

My Jumping Frogs – The Supplies

The first project we worked on was “my jumping frogs” and included everything you needed to build a log launcher and decorate leaping frogs.  You can then use the frogs to play a game to see who can land the most frogs in the pond.  This project was low on the messiness scale, medium on the grown involvement scale and involved discovering, moving – fine and creating.

April 2014 Kiwi Crate

My Jumping Frogs – In Action

L and I worked on this one totally together and each colored and decorated a few frogs.  He only let me launch a few though and I never once got them on a pond.  Our frogs were launching all over the kitchen.  LOL!  We need to get a bigger pond!

Project #2: My Rainstick

April 2014 Kiwi Crate

Project #2: My Rainstick

April 2014 Kiwi Crate

My Rainstick – The Supplies

The second project was “my rainstick” and included everything you needed to build a rainstick and decorate it with stickers and feathers.  This project was low on the messiness scale, required medium grownup involvement and involved moving – fine, creating and discovering.

April 2014 Kiwi Crate

My Rainstick – The Final Product

We loved this project!  I was under the impression that you used a rainstick to try and get rain, but that does not appear to be the case (thank goodness).  It really does sound like rain too.  I was surprised that wooden beads and paper really make it sound like rain, but it seriously does.  L (and WB) both love shaking this and listening to it rain.  We are going to take Kiwi Crate’s suggestion and try putting marshmallows, rice, etc. in there instead of the beads to see what it sounds like.

April 2014 Kiwi Crate

explore! Magazine

Kiwi Crate also includes an “explore!” magazine which has tons of activities, craft / project ideas, stories, drawing ideas, etc.

April 2014 Kiwi Crate

Working on explore! Projects

L got to work right away on the “Hidden Picture” page in the box.  He loves those hidden pictures and I used to as well when I was younger!  We’ve love an entire activity book of just those. He also has big plans for us to work on building our own terrarium.  We just need to get some seeds and get started.

Did you get Kiwi Crate this month?  What’d you think?  Which box did you get this month?   If you are interested in subscribing, head to the Kiwi Crate website to order your crate.  And don’t forget to use the coupon code “RAMBLINGS25” to save 25% off your first box!

~Citrus Lane: Lots going on with Citrus Lane today! First of all Mystery Boxes are back! Head on over to the Citrus Lane shop and click “Mystery Box” under the Featured Boutique category. There are four boxes available (all $29 each and promise a value of $60+) and the categories are: Mealtime, Art, Bath and Music. I may or may not have ordered all 4 ;). Boxes are available while supplies last and tend to sell out quite quickly. Also, it’s Citrus Lane’s Semi-Annual Event and they are offering their 3,6 and 12-monthly subscriptions for up to 44% off!! The discount is automatically applied and brings the cost of the box to as low as $16.33/month depending on which subscription length you select. If you just want to try one month, you can still use the code “TAKE20OFF” to get your first box for $9. Subscription will renew at the regular price of $29/month.
