So, it's snowing again. I think we can all agree we're ready for spring, yes?
A storm that was supposed to bring nothing but rain here in Boston, turned into a good foot of snow in some places in and around the city.
What do you do when it's snowing outside? Curl up inside! I don't know about you, but my favorite thing to do during snow storms is make hot cocoa and watch movies.
No snow day movie marathon is complete without the perfect blanket to snuggle into. Thanks to my friends at the American Blanket Company, I have a brand new blanket, in my favorite color (purple) to keep me cozy tonight.
The American Blanket Company is based right here in Massachusetts, Fall River to be exact, and each and every one of their blankets is made here in the U.S. They make everything from bedding blankets to throw blankets to baby blankets. Each blanket's quality is guaranteed for life and you can customize any size blanket with initials, a full name or a special date. Additionally, every blanket comes gift wrapped, saving you the hassle of having to purchase enough wrapping paper to cover an entire fleece blanket!
My American Blanket Company blanket is the throw size. That size comes in three fabric choices: Peaceful Touch, Supple Touch or Luster Loft. I selected the Supple Touch because it comes in my favorite hue, plum!
My blanket arrived and as promised, it was beautifully packaged.
The American Blanket Company logo feels so Americana. It reminds me of the Ralph Lauren or Tommy Hilfiger logos.
Each blanket has a sticker marked "Made in U.S.A."
How beautiful is this color? Can you tell how soft the blanket is just from looking at this picture?
I couldn't decide where to keep the blanket, so I had to try every room.
On its first night in my house I had it over one of my dining room chairs.
A few days later I moved it to my bedroom. It matches my Madura bedding perfectly!
Eventually I moved it to my great grandmother's chair in my living room. I have been watching TV in this chair my whole life. It is completely molded to my body.
The blanket eventually found its permanent home on my couch. In fact, as I write this I am on the couch, under the blanket, with my Macbook on my lap. I am snug as a bug in a rug!
This blanket is so soft and feels so luxurious. It is pure heaven.
I am so obsessed with this blanket that I have to share the love. The folks at American Blanket Company have generously given me a second plum colored, Supple Touch throw blanket to giveaway to one of my lucky readers!
