Friday Fancies (On Saturday)




This week has been a bit of a rough one, to say the least. I've been dealing with a lot of issues with our health insurance company and there have been lots of calls back and forth trying to get stuff straightened out, I think they are finally admitting to their mistakes. Ughs adulting is hard. 

Anyways I'm hoping to have a nice relaxing weekend with my two favorite fellas, cats, one giant glass of sangria (or three), and lots of baked goodies :) What are you all up to this weekend? Anything fun?

Japan Funbox

I was recently contacted by the awesome people over at Japan Funbox to see if I would like to do a little review of one of their monthly subscription boxes, and of course, I jumped at the chance! Not only am I all about wonderful snacks and sweet treats, I'm definitely all about trying another country's offerings!

Japan Funbox sent me over one of their Mini boxes which have anywhere between 5 - 7 snacks (mine came with 6) and goes for $14.99 a month, which includes free shipping from Japan. There are two other options that come with more snacks as well as crafts. There was definitely quite a variety in my box ranging from potato chips to chocolate. Thankfully it came with a little handout describing each item because I had a couple pieces that I wouldn't have been able to identify without it. So far we have tried the pizza flavored and the taffy, both of which were super tasty. I really liked the box though I wish they offered a subscription for every other month, for me that would be more than enough to enjoy. Overall I think it's a great little way to 'treat yo self' or treat a friend. 

If you dig subscription boxes give Japanese Candy & Snack Box - Japan Funbox a try, it's interesting and fun!

Both Wigs and Sylvester thought the goodies were for them, but honestly, they pretty much think everything is for them haha! As a bonus, here's a little behind the scenes photo I shared on Instagram the other day. Taking photos for the blog has become a little more time consuming between getting the cats out of the shot and dealing with the little fella when he is over waiting for me to get the "perfect" shots haha.

Life Lately

Life Lately - littleladylittlecity.com
Life around here has both been busy and idle at the same time (if that makes sense). Felix has only been here for 10 weeks and 6 days, but it already feels like he's been here forever. It's such a bizarre feeling. Ever since he arrived back in April we have been figuring out our new daily schedule which is slowly been working itself out. Thankfully, both Will and I work from home so we can definitely tag team most baby related things, and that is super nice for sure. Right now our biggest hurdle is getting his nap time to happen for longer than 30 minutes without him having to be sleeping on me. While I would absolutely love to have our little fella snuggled up on me all day every day it does get incredibly draining not have any time to yourself. As I write this he is currently napping by himself, but it looks like he might be waking up. Fingers crossed he puts himself back to sleep. 

We've started to do a little swimming every other day with Felix (we got him a little floaty thing to sit in) and it seems like he is really digging it. Lots of splashing, it's kind of the cuties thing ever. Yesterday we went over to my dad's to celebrate his first 4th of July with some more pool time and BBQ for us :) We were even able to see some fireworks from our front yard. Maybe next year we will head on down to the park and watch the full fireworks show with Felix. 

Hope everyone had a great 4th!
