Powered by Mom shares why she is #ThankFALL and Microplush Blanket Giveaway ends 10/19 Canada Only
We want everyone to share what they are #ThankFALL for so we’ve got a cozy giveaway and want to share what we are thankful for. Read on to find out more!
Big or small we all have something we are thankful for and I think it does our hearts good to just say out loud (or write it down) sometimes and share what and why we’re thankful. The fall season now in full swing which means I’ve been even busier than usual.
Hubby and I both have hectic schedules that can change daily but we roll with it and adjust when needed. All parents are busy I know and for moms in particular I find we put everything and everyone ahead of ourselves because that’s just what we do. We do make time for each other and ourselves and I’m really thankful for my family for being there for me, their support and love and understanding when sometimes mom just needs a break.
I’ve been feeling worn out from being on the go so much and apparently I am not alone. A good friend of mine said she needed a break and as much as she loves her extended family she said she wanted to get away and not have to cook a turkey dinner for 20+ people (yep her family is big). So she came up with the idea for a mom’s getaway for Thanksgiving this year, she invited me and one other friend.
At first I thought no I can’t leave my family on Thanksgiving, that didn’t seem very thankful of me. However, I talked to my hubby and daughter and they encouraged me to go. So I said yes and I’m headed out for a mom’s weekend away of rest, relaxation and great company. I decided that I want to do an extra special something for my hubby and daughter to show once again how #ThankFALL I am and appreciate that they understand that I need to recharge and I’ll come back rejuvenated, I will be Mom 2.0 or least more relaxed.
I had an idea of what I wanted so I headed to Target to go and get my goodies for them. I wanted to get them something relax in and be cozy too and that was a bit of fun so I went in search of some pajamas. I found several cute ones to select from for my daughter, hers was easy to decide on which one so check, pjs for my daughter.
Hubby is a little harder to buy for as he’s a bit picky but I know he likes plush and fleece like items so I went and checked out the Threshold blankets that they had on sale at Target. They had several to choose from in all sorts of different colours. I loved the sweater knit blankets and the organic blankets, they were very stylish and had some great patterns and styles as you can see below.
However, the blanket wasn’t for me and since I know that my hubby and daughter love soft and plush blankets like the polar fleece ones I went and looked for the Microplush blankets from Threshold which were also on sale. These blankets were on for a great prize, they are huge, they are 2.28 m x 2.28 m and they were on for only $29.99. I loved so many of the deep rich colors I went for a neutral one that would go in almost all of our rooms.
Pjs for my daughter, check, warm, soft and cozy blanket for hubby check but I needed one more thing. I still wanted some pjs for hubby as I knew my daughter would probably steal the microplush blanket from him. I found him some pjs that totally suited him and I knew he would wear them. I gave them all their goodies to say thank you for understanding mom will be just so much better if she gets away for the weekend. Well they were #ThankFALL because this morning they decided to take full advantage of their goodies and enjoyed them, all day in fact, they had a pjs on all day kind of day.
Here are the pjs I got for hubby, they look good on him. He likes a lot of black clothes but he doesn’t like boring patterns, the skull pj bottoms were perfect for him with the black shirt to go with them.
My hubby even got to enjoy the cream microplush blanket I selected for a while before my daughter discovered it. He of course quite liked the blanket as apparently so did one of our dogs Little Zeus as you can see.
Here are the pjs I chose for my daughter, they were adorable and of course they were 25% off even better! As you can see hubby didn’t get to keep the microplush blanket for long. It’s just so soft and cozy I have a feeling I will have to go and buy another one.
Now I can go away for my mom’s weekend, rejuvenate and come back feeling better, a new me and I know that my family knows I’m thankful for all they do and appreciate that they understand that giving mom this break is good for all of us. I’m also thankful that they didn’t make me feel guilty at all, although there are some hints about making my famous pumpkin cheesecake some time :). Which I’ll be making when I come back as Mom 2.0, just don’t tell my family I’m making it yet, it will be a surprise 🙂
Now to get everyone, cozy and feeling #ThankFALL we’re going to give away the exact same Threshold MicroPlush blanket in cream that I gave to my family. Enter on the rafflecopter below, good luck and remember to let us know what you are #ThankFALL for!
