I am SOOO in my happy place...

Today I had to buy some kitchen curtains. So I headed to Bed Bath and Beyond.

Of course, in order to torment people like me, they put the damned kitchen gadgets in the front of the store. But I resisted. Oh yes I did. I didn't even wander off the main aisle. Hrumph.

So, I found some curtains, nothing special, they work. Then I turned. Oh My Goodness. There IT was. So soft, so light, so BIG!


Now I am fully aware that many of you won't give a rats ass about me and my blankey fetish. BUT....I share just about everything else with you (you didn't honestly think I post EVERYTHING on here, did you?! A girls got to have SOME secrets!) and this blanket is so incredible that I had to tell you about it.

I keep my house cool enough (if at all possible) that I need a throw on me when I'm lounging around. It all started when I was a kid and Mama would always yell at me to sit like a lady. Well.....that ain't comfortable. So, I started throwing a blanket over me and then no one even bothered me. Ha. Well, the habit has stuck.

And decent throw blankets are hard to find. First they need to be long. I'm tall and have very long legs, I need a long blanket. Then it has to be soft. I don't like itchy blankets. Nope, not at all. AND it has to be light weight. If it's too heavy I might as well just use my grandma's quilt.

This is perfect. So if you are looking for a great throw - head to BB&B. If you're looking for a great gift - head to BB&B.

OK - I've got to go now. I want to curl up in my chair and enjoy!!!!

You know, I was all set to tell you how I too love throw blankets...but I noticed a glaring omission on your sidebar. Notably, ME. So until I am listed, I am boycotting your site, and will bring all of my two readers with me dammit!

Throw blankets are a must, I love them.

OOOOHHHH and I think I have to go get one of those. I go through one throw blanket a year.

That looks lovely!
Even though I live in south Florida I keep the A/C turned down, especially at night, so I can cuddle up in my favorite blankey. :)
