Junpro Mermaid Tail Blanket

What is a mermaid tail blanket? It's a blanket made (often crocheted) to look like a mermaid tail once it is put on.


This particular blanket from Junpro is a beautiful color of pink and purple mixed. It is crocheted with a ruffled top trim.


It has an opening in the back for easy access to get into the blanket. It keeps those tiny tootsies nice and warm.


The bottom of the blanket is exactly as described. It looks like a mermaid tail fin. 


Modeled by my own Baby ( ok toddler #mommydenial ) Jo. You can see it's perfect for a chair or laying down. She like the chair, so that she can watch her "Tangled" cartoon. 




As mentioned this blanket is hand crocheted and super soft. It is made of a high-quality fabric blend(80% polyester + 20% cotton). The material makes the blanket warm yet breathable. It has super easy care instructions included in the carry bag. You will want to wash this mermaid tail blanket separately before you first use it. I would take care not wash it with items containing a zipper so that it doesn't snag. You can hand wash or machine wash at a low temperature and tumble dried with low heat.

You can purchase this blanket in kids and adult sizes. I'm not gonna lie. Momma has a mermaid tail blanket too. It's perfect for days cuddled on the couch watching princess movies.

Halfway to Anywhere by Sydney Logan

Halfway to Anywhere (Wild Child, #1)Halfway to Anywhere by Sydney Logan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“But where would we go?” I reach over and stroke her cheek. “It doesn’t matter. We’ll just get in the car and go. And by morning, we could be halfway to . . . anywhere. Anywhere at all.”


I loved the REALITY of this book. The subjects are darkish and raw. These teens deal with real life issues and in real life situations. That's what kept me going back to finish it. It was a super short story. However, I am a super slow reader. I loved that it made me WANT to walk on my treadmill, just so I can see what's happening next.

The relationship between Silas and Jaycee was just as one would expect in a normal teenage "puppy love". I could relate to them as a couple, unlike some romances where it's an instant I LOVE YOU. Their relationship was believable. The way that Silas wanted to protect her, made me love him even more. I could easily see myself as a young girl falling for my "own" Silas.

“Love sucks, Silas. It puts you in impossible positions and makes you compromise your convictions. It makes you do stupid things you never thought you’d do. It makes you blind and careless. It makes you question everything you ever thought was right. Or everything you thought was wrong. It makes you keep secrets. It makes you take risks you never thought you’d have to take.”


Once again Sydney has pulled me in with the details. She leaves nothing out. You are not left wondering. No how? why? where? Just following the flow of the story it's easy to get the answers. She has such a way with details that you can always feel an immediate connection to the characters.

Mucinex FAST-MAX

Sickness has hit the Ellis household. First the youngest, Baby Jo ( she's 3 but will always be my baby). She then passed it ( the nastiness that is the cold, or flu) onto her brother. The oldest is 19. He has his Daddy's immune system (enough said). Then dear hubby came down with the man flu.

That's when we received this Mucinex Fast-Max Clear & Cool #gotitfree sample from Smiley360. Thank you sweet baby Jesus! For all women out there, YOU get me right? In all honesty, I felt horrible for him. This crud is awful. I gave him this Mucinex and about 30 minutes later you could tell he was feeling somewhat better.
