Introducing Downlite Bedding…my new favorite bedding!

My sweet sons reading together with my Downlite Bedding

A few weeks ago, Downlite bedding reached out to me and asked me if I would like to try out one of their Downlite EnviroLoft® Lightweight 230 TC Hotel Style Down Alternative Blankets (see above in photo). Not only could I try it out for myself, but I got to keep it! (How freaking amazing and generous is that?!) And let me tell ya, I LOVED the blanket! My husband LOVED the blanket! My kids LOVED the blanket!

The day I caught my boys all curled up on my bed with this blanket, reading “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory” together, I knew I had a perfect photo to represent how much we all love this blanket! As a matter of fact, this photo is getting printed and framed! (My daughter, who is 22, wanted to keep the blanket for herself, but heck no! It’s all mine, sista!) It is just the right weight and thickness, easy to clean, and I can’t wait to find a pretty duvet cover for it (even though you totally don’t have to cover it; it is super nice just on it’s own!)

(Website description:) Used by countless hotels and resorts needing a light amount of warmth for their beds. This hotel blanket is great for the summer time and/or warmer climate zones. Crisp cambric cotton fabric is quilted with 10″ squares with a 5 inch frame/border. This soft blanket features 4 duvet loops for use with a duvet cover.

And your kid will need the most comfortable bedding there is for those awful dorm beds. These are so inexpensive and nice, these would make wonderful graduation gifts, so stock up on a few sets now before 2020 graduation rolls around in May/June.

Easy care polyester plush fabric is tailor cut to drape over your shoulders and overlap in the front for snuggly warmth. Features pockets to keep your hands snuggly.

I am forever buying blankets for my boys. They like a nice, comfy, cozy blanket they can cover up with in bed, but also lay on the floor when they are playing with toys or just feel like chilling on the floor. The blankets I have bought before (from the big box stores) fall apart easily, get pilly after a few washes, or my kids find the blankets easy to pick apart (they are autistic, and picking things apart is kind of their thing.) These throws are perfect for them, well-made, durable and super cozy.

(Website description:) Stay warm wherever adventure takes you. These luxurious Eddie Bauer® packable throw blankets are filled with hypoallergenic PrimaLoft®, The Luxury Down Alternative. Combined with packable fabric for a space saving design. Measuring 50 by 60 inches plus matching storage bag. They are ultra-light and ultra-warm making them the ultimate cozy travel companion. Available in two great colors, these Eddie Bauer throw blankets make the perfect gift for someone you love. And they are currently on sale for $40 (reg $60)

Wrinkly because my kids were enjoying laying on it!

About ME

Welcome to Mom Loves Reading…the Blog!

I am a married, mother of 5 (plus 1 elderly chihuahua), and I am also an avid reader. I read many genres of books: thrillers, contemporary fiction, some sci-fi (hello, Blake Crouch!), YA, non-fiction, and more. I am also a huge fan of audio books, thanks to Libro.fm and the Libby app through my local library. Audio books are my go-to method of reading during the day when I am busy running around doing my usual “mom” stuff, and physical books are my morning with coffee and evening with herbal tea way to unwind.

I started this blog the first week of 2020 as an addition to my other social media outlets (Instagram, Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter) so I could have a more creative, personal space for my book reviews, recommendations, what I’m reading now, what I recommend, and also some more personal tidbits about my life as a mother of 5 (including identical twins with autism), living with autoimmune diseases, life in a small, lakeside (touristy) town and other interesting stuff.
