Heated Blanket and Midweek Thoughts

Heated Blanket and Midweek Thoughts

We had a rough night I was up all night doing loads of laundry because my little Ray vomited all over his bed from coughing so much.  Nebulizer and inhaler treatments were being done around the clock to make sure his breathing was good, colds usually trigger his asthma.  I folded and put away a mountain of laundry until about 3 am.  But on a brighter note Ray woke up with no fever meaning I think he’s at the recovery mode of his cold!

I wanted to come on here and share my newest finds and additions to all things cozy this season first off, it is this Sunbeam Plush Blanket, this incredible heated blanket is the softest! It relaxes and makes me so warm instantly because I’m the girl who is always cold. When I worked in an office I’d be the lady who always had her space heater on under her desk. No matter what temperature it was outside. Even on a day where it was ninety degrees outside I’d have my space heater on because let’s face it the air conditioner is blasting in the corporate buildings! So last night as I got four loads of laundry done I decided to get this post out. Instead as I got into this blanket I fell asleep. It’s so soft, and it has a three-hour timer so it turns off on its own if you snooze and forget to turn it off. It’s worth the investment I bought it from Costco but you can find the exact same blanket on Amazon here and have it delivered to your front door and if you’re a prime member then have it within two business days so you don’t miss a single cold night of being warm and cozy. I’ve linked it in the picture below as well so get your cozy blanket now!

These blankets are $35 on Amazon, but keep in mind, prices vary based on the color you select and the size of the blanket.  If you have a Costco nearby and a Costco membership you can buy one for less than $30.  They are the perfect gift for the holidays too!

Until next time, Happy Shopping!

Joggers for Life

Joggers for Life

I jump with joy the days I can just get a few minutes to myself.  Things around here with toddler boys can sometimes get a little haywire.  I went to moms yesterday and the boys missed their naps by about 5pm my mom was having her anxiety kick in because the kids were literally running and jumping off the walls. The beauty of missing their naps was they were knocked out and asleep by 7pm sharp! I snuck in a nap once they fell asleep which was so refreshing!

We were hit with a bit of rain and some flurries yesterday but that didn’t stop us from hitting the polls! I loved seeing all the posts on everyone stepping out and getting their voice heard! As the weather gets colder we moms still have to step out for early morning school drop-offs or errands and there’s nothing like having a pair of joggers to add to your momiform to keep things warm and cozy. I just had to pop in and share the sweetest deal on the coziest Alternative joggers ever!

(To purchase simply click on either of the images below and buy yourself a pair, there are more colors and prints you can select from once you click the image)

These joggers fit snug like a glove and to add to their comfort they are SOFT!! They have a slim fit to them and they do tend to shrink just a little after the first wash. Initially I bought these joggers in a medium because many reviews said they run small but the medium gave me a loser fit whereas the small size was more snug. I prefer to wear joggers a little more snug (I’m about 5 feet and wear a size 24 or 25).  I love these joggers so much that I have four pairs!!

My first initial find for the Alternative jogger was at Nordstrom but they were priced at $54.  Until I found them on Amazon for less than $25!!!! Sweet deals like this make me jump with joy!!! I’ve linked the Alternative joggers here.  They come in different colors and even a fun camo print (*note pricing varies on amazon based on the print/color you select).  As the weather is getting cooler all of us moms can use a cozy pair of joggers to cozy up by the fireplace or slip them on in the crisp cold mornings when we have to drop the kids off to school. Don’t miss out on this deal! To purchase simply click the image/link and buy your pair now!

As the holidays approach I’m excited to share more styles and deals with you so stay tuned with me I’ll be posting more updates on sales and discounts!

Monday Musings

Monday Musings

We survived last weeks sugar high. Halloween was a success we managed to cover just our street and it was good enough for the boys to get an idea of trick-or-treating. Ray woke up at 7 am the next day thinking it’s going to be Halloween everyday and insisting on going trick-or-treating.  That took some explaining but I think he gets that Halloween is just once a year! JJ is still obsessed with all the Halloween nursery rhymes and keeps asking me to play “Punkin Halloween” (5 Little Pumpkins).

The weekend flew right before our eyes as we had spurs of pouring rain and then some sun.  A little snow in the higher altitude regions lead to a beautiful view of snow-capped mountains this got me all excited about the holidays and I started getting ideas of holiday décor for our home I have a post coming this week of some of my favorite Amazon deals.  I am way eager to get a tree up and start decorating but I’ll wait for another couple weeks. As for now…I want to dive into some recipe books and get some delicious recipes out before Thanksgiving!

Every year for the past couple years as tradition my husband and my sister both cook a thanksgiving turkey.  My husband loves to marinate his Turkey with our traditional spices he loves to give it a very traditional Pakistani taste.  My sister on the other hand cooks her Turkey with a classic American marination she has a special recipe she hasn’t shared but she does the whole shebang with mouth watering stuffing and cranberry sauce. Both Turkeys are devoured!!

I love to get into the Thanksgiving spirit by some holiday decor, kitchen essentials, and making sure the kids enjoy the holiday as well. My little Ray loves to help in the kitchen and so I’ve linked some of my favorite items for toddlers and kitchen must-haves for the food festivities found on Amazon! And if you’re a prime member on Amazon you can get free two day delivery which is amazing! Since becoming a prime member I’ve been so spoiled standard delivery at many retail stores takes 5-7 business days which seems like a lifetime away after you’ve reaped the benefits of being a Amazon Prime member!

Here is my roundup of Amazons must-haves for Thanksgiving (you can simply click on any item and purchase)…
