Bluum 31 Month Old Box - August 2014

* This post contains affiliate and referral links.

It seems like I just keep posting my subscription boxes later and later after I've received them. Please forgive me if you've been waiting to see what I received in my Bluum box this month. You may have noticed that we've been absent from the blog for the past couple of days. It's alright, I'll tell you why. See my big sister Krxssy headed off to college yesterday and mommy and I wanted to spend some time with her and not worry about the blogging or internet world. Sometimes you have to let go of technology. Don't you agree? Well letting go of technology means that I have now some catching up to do. Now for those who have been with me for a while may know what Bluum is all about. For those are just visiting me for the first time and have no idea what I'm talking about and wondering, what's Bluum? Let me tell you all about it. Bluum is a monthly subscription box for both mom and baby from pregnancy to age 5. Each month you receive a box of surprise goodies catered to your little one based on their age. Subscription costs $29/monthly but there are 3 other subscription plans, and the longer you subscribe the cheaper it becomes. You can get a 3 month subscription at $25/month, 6 months at $23/month and 12 months at $21/month all which needs to be paid upfront. If you're interested in what I got in my 30 month old box, take a look.

I can't believe I'm almost 31 months old already. Where did time go? Before you and I know it I'll be 3 years old and guess what? You know what they said about the terrible two's? They lied! Maybe it may happen when I'm 3 but right now this is the most amazing time of my life and it isn't terrible at all.

Well I bet you're wondering what was in my box right? Well lets get into it!
