July Citrus Lane Box Review

We got our July Citrus Lane box for a 40 month old boy today in the mail (I upped his age a bit). Anderson was sooo excited to open it but I did manage to get a few pictures in. We were very pleased (and pleasantly surprised) with our box this month! Here are our contents...

A goodbyn bento box with dishwasher safe stickers to decorate it yourself! This was a huge hit because Anderson Loves stickers! We decorated it together immediately! And he wanted a snack in it right away. He has been carrying it around all morning!

This car was the first thing he noticed in the box. It is a Melissa and Doug paintable wooden car that you put together. Kind of like a first model car. Her actually has done a bigger version of this before and loved doing it so we were thrilled to get this! He cannot wait to paint it!

A pack of freeze dried just bananas - these were consumed immediately as you can tell from the empty package. A big hit! I was happy because Anderson is such a picky eater but he loved these - in my book that means that any kid would probably love them!

Cool it buddy instant ice pack. A 2 pack if single use ice packs that do not have to stay in your freezer - great for the accident prone kiddo ;)

Last, but not least, a certificate for 10 free postgrams. I have never used these before but am really excited to try them. They are photo postcards that you design yourself and the photo pops out as a keepsake for the recipient! Great for out of town family!! 

All in all we were very pleased this month!  The total cost I estimated for this box is...

Bento box - $8.99
Dishwasher safe stickers - $3.50
Wooden car paint set - $5.02 on sale on amazon (normally $8.99)
Cool Packs - $2.99
Just bananas - $1.50
Postgram - $0.99 per card (10 cards)

Total - $31.90 and that is with the car sale price

Last month we were disappointed with our CL box, but after this month, the great products and how excited Anderson was, I think we will keep it up!!

Here is a link to sign up and a coupon code for 1/2 off! 


This makes your fist box only $12.50 - totally worth it in my opinion!

I will get a credit if you use my link, so thanks a ton if you do!!

The 4th

It was kind of a bummer 4th of July since it rained ALL day! We had fun at a cook out, turned "cook in" this afternoon with some friends from church... Then had pizza and fireworks at my parents house this evening (it was even sprinkling while we did fireworks). Last year Anderson wasn't a huge fan of fireworks, but this year he loved them! We even made a little vine video of him saying "wooo, 'Merica" haha it was pretty cute. If you aren't on vine, I highly recommend it! It is a fave phone app of ours! Here are a few pictures from our evening!

That tongue! He seriously has it sticking out any time he is concentrating:

There is that tongue again... And yes, his shoes are on the wrong feet! Haha!

I am hoping it is a sunny week because we have serious cabin fever from all the rain this past week! I even took both kids to the mall Tuesday to get out! We met Alyssa Laing and her kiddos... 4 babies in the mall is kind of crazy! But we managed to have some fun!! 

We cannot believe it is JULY! Life is flying by, and we are trying to enjoy all these sweet moments in the life stage that our babies are in - some days are easier than others ;)

Thankful for freedom, family, friends, and most of all faith in Christ! (How's that for some good southern baptist alliteration ;))
