3 Ft Bean Bag Chair For My Kids To Fight Over

Usually my husband likes to take up the couch and I sit in the chair when we hang in the living room however, there are 4 of us and neither of these pieces are large as they are handed down from my sister-in-law when she was selling her summer home. Soooo this means my kids usually fight over the one bean bag chair we have in the living room. We have talked about getting a large couch, one where we can all sit to watch movies together but finances are tight as usual! Life! Soooo...we bought another bean bag. This one is so much bigger than the other one and is much more comfortable too.

When we received it, it was wrapped up like my last mattress or a rug. I am not even sure how they do this but it was completely wrapped and shipped in a small but tall box.

We took it out of the wrapping and couldn't get it to form a bean bag shape. It was just flat. We fluffed and fluffed with us eventually figuring it would just end up being a large cat bed.

Today (3 days after I opened it) I came home from work and wah-la....the bean bag was a bean bag! Who would have thunk it!? Not me.

We put the cover on which was really easy because it almost completely unzips to fit the bean bag inside. The cover is so soft and microfiber like that it will probably be covered in cat in by the weekend but it says machine washable.

The kids are already fighting over it and we haven't even finished homework.

If you are looking for a large bean bag, I suggest this one!

Everyone Needs A Comfy - We Fight Over It In My House Including The Cats!

The Comfy is the Blanket/Sweatshirt social media sensation that first launched in late 2017 on Shark Tank. Their Buzzfeed video alone went viral with over 54.2 Million Views and 230K shares!  They are portable, reversible, perfect for travel, getting cozy on the couch, and a must have this season! 

The 411:
We are in love with The Comfy! One size fits all and it comes in grey, blue, pink and black. We got it in grey but I can already see I need at least 3 more.
 It is beyond comfortable and it took 4 days for me to even be able to try it for this review because my family took it over. My daughter tried it first and told me it was like the biggest, most comfortable pullover she ever wore.
My husband who told me daughter it wasn't a good look put it on and instantly took a nap. It has now become his nap time blanket.

My son wakes in the morning and instantly puts it on. He insists on wearing shorts even though it is only 38 degrees in the morning. He also wears it when he comes home from school and does his homework.
I finally got a chance to read it one morning when I woke earlier than the house. It is beyond comfy. It is extremely soft and the hood is perfect, even acting as a pillow when you lie down.

My daughter thought It looked hysterical but it is the best reading blanket. I don't have to worry about it slipping down and my arm getting cold at night when I sit to spend time with my current book. I am in love with it and think it makes a great gift. I know three people on my list who would love this. I get to check out many products as a blogger but this is one of those that I wish I could just buy for everyone I know so they can see what I mean. 
Even my cats get upset when I try to pull it out from underneath them! 

Here is Jinxy making biscuits on The Comfy. 

And just look how soft it is!

So far we have watched it once and it came out perfect. I put it in the dryer on low for 40 minutes and it came out puffy and perfect! 

When I posted on my personal Facebook page everyone wanted to know where you can get it. You can get it on their website but I also saw it at Bed, Bath and Beyond for the same price of $39.99.

Look for The Comfy on my Holiday Gift Guide this year.

Polaner Fruit & Maple Turnovers

Polaner Fruit & Maple pairs the fresh taste of fruit with the delicate sweetness of pure maple syrup and each variety contains four ingredients or less (except for Peach, which has five ingredients),
the first two of which are fruit and pure maple syrup. Polaner Fruit & Maple has no high
fructose corn syrup, no artificial flavors and no artificial colors. This premium line of fruit and
maple spreads is also gluten free and kosher. It is available in eight ounce jars at a suggested
retail price of $3.99.

This innovative new product converges on two major food trends generating consumer
demand. First, Polaner Fruit & Maple uses golden delicate pure maple syrup as an alternative to cane sugar and artificial sweeteners, and is on trend with the alternative sweetener movement that has grown 200 percent in the past four years. Second, there is a significant growth trend in pure maple syrup consumption not only due to flavor preference, but also for its budding use in recipes both at home and in restaurants. By using maple syrup as a sweetener, Polaner Fruit & Maple imparts a subtle, more balanced and gentler flavor than if sweetened with traditional cane sugar.

Polaner Fruit & Maple is versatile as it perfectly complements recipes for appetizers, protein‐based main dishes, side dishes, baking and cocktails in addition to its traditional usage at breakfast. Polaner Fruit & Maple premium fruit spread is currently available in stores across the Northeast and will be available soon in the Central Midwest and Pacific Northwest. To find stores carrying   Polaner Fruit & Maple premium fruit spread, visit www.polanerspreads.com/where-to-buy/  Orders can easily be placed at the Maple Grove Farms® gift shop by calling 1‐800‐525‐2540 ext. 5547.1.800.525.2540 ext. 5547. 

The 411:

Polaner Fruit and Maple is an amazing combination of fruit and maple syrup and while we think it is wonderful on toast, waffles, with butter and peanut butter or without; this week we decided to make a dessert!

The Polaner Turnover

Mini Tortillas
Polaner Spreads
Cinnamon and sugar

We spread the Polaner on the Tortillas and placed them with a little bit of butter in a pan until they were golden brown on both sides.

Then we rolled them in a cinnamon and sugar mixer and let them cool for 5 minutes.  

They were delicious. My husband enjoyed it hot with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top and my daughter just used whipped cream. Me...I ate mine just as you see them! They were perfect.
