Life Lately

Life Lately -
I can hardly believe it's already July! Where the heck did the first half of the year go?! Things are going pretty well here, I'm keeping busy with baby man who is basically a full blown toddler now! *emoji crying face* 

It has been almost unbearably hot in Phoenix, so we've been spending lots of time in the pool or hunkered down inside (which means lots of TV shows and Netflix when baby man's sleeping). I am excitingly waiting for our first official monsoon of the season, it has been ridiculously humid the last couple of days, so I feel like it could be any day now.

The only thing we really have planned for the rest of summer is a family wedding out in mid-west next month. I'm actually a little nervous about this flight because baby man is definitely a certified toddler with way too much energy, and that's not a fun flight ingredient. Let's be honest, the majority of people on a plane are not looking forward to a rambunctious toddler a plane, let alone one that likes to climb and grab (even if he gives out plenty of cute little waves with his chunky arms.) Thankfully, we are flying out with some other family members, so hopefully, between all of us, we can keep him entertained. If you guys have any tips or tricks for flying with a toddler PLEASE SHARE :)

What have you guys been doing this summer?

Just Hanging Around

I received this Pet Magasin Cat Hammock at no charge in exchange for my honest opinion. 
Pet Magsin Cat Hammock -
As you all probably already know I love my cats and getting them fun things that I think they will like. Enter: the Pet Magasin Cat Hammock. I really like the natural wood and how sturdy it is, it even looks perfect by the front window. It was shipped in pieces to assemble, but assembling it was straight forward and gave me confidence that it was easily capable of holding up my two floofs. Because they have a window seat on the sliding glass door in the back of the house, I figured this would work perfectly in the front window so they'd have a secondary perch to watch birds from. Now I just need to get get some nice house plants to make it even homier for the cats.

Although the build is good and the spot is great, both cats have only expressed interest in sniffing the hammock so far. No doubt there's a learning curve, so I've been liberally applying treats to the surface to encourage them to give it a try. They haven't taken me up on the hammock, but they are finding ways to get their paws on the treats, haha. Once they actually get a hang of it, they are going to have to learn to share because I have a feeling they are both going to want to use it. 

If you think your cat or cats would love to have themselves a hammock you can get 30% off using this code 5F2WSQO4 at either Pet Magsin or Amazon.

Babies Really Love Destroying Eyeglasses

I received glasses from free of charge for my honest review. 
New colored eyeglasses, glasses frames,
Babies dig glasses, and not in the 'oh those look great on you' kind of way, but more of a 'I NEED THEM IN MY MOUTH' kind of way, haha. I've already lost one of my favorite pairs to baby man's teeth *insert crying emoji here*. If you look under my right eye you can even see the little cut his tiny little nails gave me while he was flailing at my glasses. This is why I am always on the look out for some new cute and inexpensive glasses, and when contacted me to review a pair of their eyeglasses I jumped at the chance.

I had been thinking about trying out some fun colored glasses frames for a while, so when I saw these guys I knew they were the ones. I feel like my mom would be proud of my choice, she was always a big glasses kind of gal, haha. I like them! I never know when I order glasses online if I'm going to get in the mail what I chose on the website, but in this case, I was pleasantly surprised. The build quality feels good, and at the price point, I'm confident wearing them every day without having to be precious about them. Nevertheless, as of right now, I am being very careful with them when baby man is up. It makes me feel a little fancier having a special (scratch free) pair of glasses, because for now, I've got a little glasses gremlin crawling over me on the reg.

I am hoping that as baby gets bigger he will become less interested in my glasses and I can have several that match my mood (or even a pair of prescription sunglasses) instead of my current setup: one good pair and a couple permanently marked with baby teeth.

And just for good measure, I give you a gif of what I look like in about 9 out of 10 photos we end up taking. I still never know what to do with my arms. Haha!
Happy Monday!
