Step Right Up Folks! To A Carnival Date Night At Home! w/Crated With Love

Before we dive into our carnival date night adventure – quick question:

You’re on Instagram, right? I mean, it’s pretty much my favorite social media option out there currently. Yeah, yeah, there are plenty of overly-staged and unrealistically bright imagery from self-proclaimed ‘influencers’ over there. But, beneath all that? The accounts that are actually real? And authentically inspiring? That give you a peek into the lives of other people out there in the world, and make you feel connected to all humanity through these frozen moments in time?ย 

That’s what I love about Instagram.ย  Read more…

Crated With Love & WeCraft Subscription Box Staycation Date Night & Kids Box

This month though – I had a surprise for them. Not only did I get a date night box for their dad and I to do, but I also got a box for the KIDS and I to do together!ย 

Crated With Love (one of my most favorite date night subscription box options) recently teamed up with a company called WeCraft to offer what they’re calling their “Staycation” package. For $50 you get BOTH subscription boxes – a Subscription Box Staycation ….aaand….wait for it…you ALSO get $20 in gift vouchers toward the two companies to use for future boxes! I do a cost breakdown at the bottom of this post so you can see how awesome of a deal this is. In the meantime, check out all the fun we had on our ‘subscription box staycation’: Read more…

A New Kind of Date Night At Home – Crated With Love’s New “Story Mode” Subscription Box

Fun fact: I consider myself THE primo connoisseur of date night at home subscription boxes. ๐Ÿ™‚ I wasย  the first person posting about them online in 2015 and I’ve come to get to know most/many of the larger companies that provide these boxes. It’s a silly thing to toot my own horn about, but still, it’s one thing I like being known for.ย 

Before I get into this box review below, let me tell you a bit about the company Crated With Love. A loooong time ago, they were called Date In a Crate and they were one of the very, very first date night subscription boxes to come out on the scene. I never had a chance to review any of their very early boxes, but some of the early reviews out there was um, not the best (I’m so sorry CWL; I don’t mean to embarrass you! Follow me on this one, I’ve got lots good stuff to say! ๐Ÿ™‚ ).ย  Read more…

Crated With Love Date Night Box Review: I Love the 80s! (Apr. โ€™17)

Hey – I might be about to go into labor (fingers crossed for any day now! …though I’m realistically not due for another week or two, but still…I can hope…), but KP and I still find time for at-home date nights. Crated With Love again to the rescue! And let’s be honest, I highly doubt we’ll be getting out anytime soon after the birth for an out-of-the-house date night. So really – Crated With Love to the rescue! ๐Ÿ™‚

April’s Crated With Love box theme was “I Love the 80s!” Read more…
