“The Good Dinosaur” Birthday Party – A Dinosaur Party For Girls & Boys

img_6460-1280x853

My daughter turned 5 this weekend. Months and months and months ago, she decided she wanted a The Good Dinosaur birthday party. I’d never planned a “real” kids birthday party and my daughter never wavered on what she wanted. 

In the months before the party, C and I would spend time on Pinterest researching and pinning ideas for a Good Dinosaur party for girls and boys (since most dino party stuff is boy-themed, we had to dig a bit deeper). It became a bonding thing between us and I probably went more all out with it than I needed to. But, hey it was fun, and your oldest child only turns 5 once, and it was fun.

unbox-love_aug16-revewUnbox Love is the very first date night subscription box service I ever stumbled upon and I can’t believe that I’m just now FINALLY doing an actual review for them! So without further ado, here it finally is: My Unbox Love Review of their August 2016 Frisbee Golf date night box.
(Disclaimer: I was given a free box to review, but I was not paid to write this and all opinions are my own!)

So it was a strange summer for KP and I. Periods of waiting, impatience, hope, uncertainty, change, etc, etc, etc… basically just how our life always is: up in the air. On top of this, KP took on a new position in his job which has meant late nights only to come home and do more work. Couple time has been hard to come by. As much as I’ve set myself up as this “expert” on date night subscription boxes and the importance of making time to spend with your spouse… I wasn’t exactly heeding my own advice.
