Want a FREE blanket?!

So, my new friend Nicole offered to review a Hugs Included blanket and sponsor a giveaway of a blanket of your choice (as long as it's in my current inventory).  Nicole has an adorable new son (Tyler) and a precious 2 year old daughter (Amber).  It was great to see the reactions of both Tyler & Amber with their new blanket as well as an appreciative mom!

So, check out Nicole's review and see what you can do to win a free blanket (adorable kiddos pictured below not included)!

What's playing

With several friends requesting blankets for baby showers, I'm now on a first-name basis with the employees at the local fabric store and have finally trained my dogs to not bug mommy while she is sewing.  I like to have something on in the background to keep me entertained while I make my blankets.  Here are some of my favorites (and why):
  • "Grey's Anatomy" reruns.  My mom finally got her DVDs back (after holding my dogs hostage).
  • 27 Dresses - James Marsden's dimples, the horrendous dresses, Judy Greer as the funny sidekick.
  • The Italian Job - Seth Green's funny one-liners, Mark Wahlberg, and Charlize Theron as a kick-butt heroine.
  • The American President - Classic.  No further explanation.
  • Failure to Launch - Bradley Cooper & Justin Bartha.  And Zooey Deschanel's snarky war against the mockingbird.
  • Confessions of a Shopaholic - My boyfriend rented this movie for me after a bad day at work.  I thought it was going to be lame until I found myself racing for the Resolve to clean up the wine that I spit up laughing.  Isla Fisher is hi-lar-i-ous and the soundtrack is so dance-able.
I'll update later with more ... what about you?  What are your favorite movies to have on in the background when you're doing something?
