Cozy Up: American Blanket Company

According to the calendar, tomorrow is the first day of the spring. Well, according to Mother Nature, it's still the dead of winter.

If you live here in Boston, you've already survived the coldest and snowiest winter in the city's history. 108.6 inches of snow to be exact.

So when I thought about the best way to mark the official beginning of spring, only one thing came to mind . . . something warm!

I am thrilled to have partnered with the American Blanket Company for today's giveaway. You may recall, in the winter of 2013 I received my first ever American Blanket Company throw and I was completely obsessed. I tried it out in every single room in the house, before eventually deciding it looked best with my charcoal gray couch.

I sit under this blanket every single night while I blog, watch TV or just veg and read trashy magazines. With all the snow days we had this winter, this blanket was practically part of my wardrobe.

While my blanket is dark (plum is the official color) I thought it would be fun to chase the winter blues away with a blanket that reminds us that spring will soon arrive (not just as a date on the calendar) so I specially requested the same blanket I have, the Supple Touch throw, in surf green.

When the blanket arrived, it came in American Blanket Company's signature white box.

I love their "Made in U.S.A." sticker on every product.

As soon as I opened the box, I could see into the future where the sun is shining, the grass is green and the flowers are blooming.

This surf green color is the perfect reminder that spring is indeed coming!

I wish these photos could better express how ridiculously soft this blanket is.

Needless to say, you need it.

While we wait for the weather to catch up to this new season, it's my pleasure to help you stay warm and cozy beneath this must-have throw.

To enter to win your very own American Blanket Company Supple Touch throw, leave a comment below sharing what you're most excited about for spring.

This giveaway will be open until 11:59pm ET on Sunday, March 22, 2015. The winner will be announced on Monday, March 23, 2015.

Good luck!

I'm most excited for plants, flowers and all the beautiful colors!

I am most excited to not have to bundle up to go outdoors! Love no coat season! :)

I am so excited to welcome spring for so MANY reasons (fashion, outdoor activities, etc.) but I am most excited for the start of farmers markets and all the blooms that will begin popping up in my backyard garden. Spring is my favorite season!

WOW! What an amazing giveaway. I want this blanket so badly. I'm most excited for WALKING everywhere in NYC. I've missed the days of strolling the sidewalks and taking in the sights, scents, and sounds of the city.

I am excited to ride my bike all around outside without the fear of snow coming down on top of me. I cannot wait for the fresh spring air to be blowing in my face! Also excited for cute dresses.

Oh Spring, how you elude us. I can't wait for WARM BREEZES! I can barely remember what those feel like. Jeans, flip flops and a tank top. With a sparkling sangria (with champagne, now that I know about that- thank you, Puerto Rico trip you went on). Come on, Spring, we're all waiting for you!!

What I am most excited about for spring is being able to spend more than 5 minutes at a time outside with the pup! She loves rolling in the grass at the Public Garden, and the feet a snow currently covering her beloved grass isn't doing it for her (or me!). Until then though, the pup loves to snuggle under cozy blankets and this one looks perfect for both of us!

I'm most excited to go down the Cape! It's just lovely in the Spring before it gets inundated with vacationers (which, admittedly, includes me)!

I can't wait to be able to run outside!

Windows down in the car and windows up in the house! Oh and the smell of freshly landscaped bark mulch. A candle company rerally needs to bottle that up!

Flowers and open windows!!!

I'm most excited for drinks in the sun on my favorite patio!

Seeing my little boy's face, and hearing his giggle, as he experiences his first time swinging at the playground!

I'm looking forward to al fresco brunches. Nothing says spring like mimosas in the sun!

I can't wait to walk outside with Kona and not wear a coat!

I can't believe we finally made it through the snow globe of this past winter. What better way to spring into the new season that with a giveaway! What am i most excited about? Two words -- flip flops!!!

Currently the thing that most excites me about spring is the idea of not having to bring an extra pair of shoes to school to change out of my snow boots. Sometimes homeroom starts before I've switched and kids catch me in my socks. They think it's hilarious, but I'm over it!

Im just glad the snow can finally melt neyabenz(at)gmail(dot)com

I can't wait to go to the park with Amelia and friends and let the kids play outside !!! Being cooped up in the house is no fun for anyone!!

I can't WAIT to go outside without a coat, and go for hikes and picnics and be in the SUN!
