Okay, so that's my dramatic way of saying:
This is my new all-time favorite blanket!
How I found my new blankie. Let me back up a little. Several months ago, my parents needed a blanket for their bed. They ran to Bed Bath & Beyond, and bought a blanket on a weekend all of our family was in town. We all fought over that blanket the whole weekend--wanting to cover up with it on the couch, wanting it on our bed at night, the kids wanting to rub their grimy hands all over it. Poor Mom and Dad...I think they had to go out the next day to buy another one for the guest bed!
How much do we love it? Want to know just how much my sisters and brothers loved that blanket? We all have them on our beds at home now! I was the last one--I just got mine last week for my birthday.
See? So soft you'll cry. I have to admit...There really were tears at our house the day we brought my blanket home...because selfish Mommy wouldn't let a certain daughter put it on her bed. (Mean ole' Mommy!)
Now, just how soft is it? I know ya'll must think I'm crazy, going on and on about a blanket. But, this blanket is the softest thing I have ever felt. If this blanket were butter...it would be room temperature butter on a warm summer's day. If this blanket were butter...I would weigh 350 lbs!!
(Does anyone have any idea what I am saying here? Me neither.)
Want to see my buttery-soft blanket?
And look! It's the prettiest butter yellow color. Coincidence? I think not!!!
Need more convincing? Don't just take my word for the amazing-ness of this blanket. Read some of the testimonials on the Berkshire Blanket website.
(While you're on the Berkshire Blanket site, check out the products for babies and kids. There are some adorable gift ideas!! My favorites? The carseat cover--check out the little ears--adorable!! Also be sure to see the paws on the animal towels!)
Want to see the blanket on our bed?
(Please don't mock me because I still don't have a headboard, or pictures over the bed. Redecorating a room is a...process...and in my case, a verrrrry sloooooowwww process. It'll happen. Someday.)
Cozy and inviting. Doesn't that bed just make you want to jump in it? So soft and cozy looking.
But, BACK OFF. You would REALLY scare me if you jumped in my bed right now. And, honestly, you would scare me if you were in my bedroom at all.
The bad news. Okay, are you ready for the bad news? The blanket is not Walmart cheap. You all know how I love Walmart. But, you cannot purchase this blanket at Walmart, or even Target (Gasp!!!).
What is it? and Where do I get it? My family all got our Indulgence Blankets by Berkshire Blanket at Bed Bath & Beyond. But, I see that you can get them on Amazon.com (perhaps under a different name?) At BB&B, you can always wait and use one of their wonderful coupons to purchase it. OR, another option--you could buy one of their Perfect Touch Throw Blankets by Berkshire Blanket. Those are only $19.99.
Looking at these blankets online, I do see that a couple of peope have commented on how their blankets "pill" or shed when washing. Since I just got mine, I haven't washed it much--but I don't think anyone in my family has had this experience at all! (And they have had theirs for at least 6 months.) Strange!
What's YOUR favorite blanket? Or, does anyone have one of these Berkshire ones?
