Who writes about blankets on their blog.... This mommy does!

Laugh all you want but...
 let's talk for a minute about a little invention that has changed my life

 Beautyrest Dual Control Luxury Heated Blanket.
End of story. 

Okay maybe not really end of story.
Does this really need that much explaining??
Okay maybe it does.
But I do know for a fact I am not alone in my love for this blanket. 
Heated blanket might I add. 

This was actually sent to me as a gift from my wonderful cousin Kristi.
After having a brief discussion about it on Facebook one night,
she decided to not only spoil me but 2 of our other cousins as well with this amazing present. 

As weird as it may sound this little/big thing has simplified and complicated my life.
Since becoming a stay at home mom I have dealt with a terrible case of insomnia. 
I just can't seem to fall asleep at a decent hour. 
It sucks. 
And as much as I love Pinterest I know how unhealthy it is to stay up half the night "pinning".

Back to the topic at hand. 
Upon receiving this blanket in the mail (I believe I squealed)
I hooked er' right on up and didn't move for the rest of the day. 
I recall telling Nathan I was just going to sleep on the couch because that is where I set up shop.
I am not that crazy of a person so I did end up moving to bed.

Seriously though this thing has me wanting to go to bed earlier and sleeping in late. 
It is hard to part with in the mornings. 
This blanket is magical, and...
Bonus: it is also so huge you could fit a family of 6 under it. 
no jokes.
Unless your like me and don't like sharing.

trying harder

Hey Everyone!

Long time no talk. 
You all should know by now that I am not very good about keeping up my blog. 
Life always seems to get in the way. 

If any of you have blogs you know that it takes a lot of time, dedication, and hard work.
Which is something I did not know when I signed up for this.
I don't know about other bloggers but it takes me forever to write a post.
Usually around an hour if not longer. 

I love my blog and I am so glad I have it.
but, I really wish I was more passionate about it to keep it up. 
I might do really good for about a week and then I start going back down hill and never posting. 

It kind of reminds me of facebook. 
I get in my moods where I really love facebook and I post pictures and statuses frequently.
Then out of the blue I am just kind of over it and want to keep my life private. 
 It's crazy that I even wanted a blog in the first place.
Especially a public blog that is about me, my family, and our life. 

I want my blog to be good and I want people to stick around and read it
but Ive noticed that sometimes I try so hard my personality isn't even visible in my post's
It's just a bunch of words and its bland and boring.
That is not what I want my blog to be.

I really want to try harder and put myself out there so everyone can get to know me.
I know this is going to take a lot of work.
But I hope over time my blog can turn into something great.

Here's to trying! :)

p.s please ignore my header. :) It is a work in progress. I hopefully will have new one in the next 2 weeks if not sooner. It's all up to the hubs!
