As a Mom, I love hearing what my friends/fellow Mommies favorite things are. Word of mouth is the best advertisement by far. With that, I am starting a series titled, “Favorite Things” in which i’ll share with you some of my favorite things. Don’t worry, it won’t be all baby related, i’ll include everyday things- whatever I deem worthy of sharing and wanting others to know about.
I’ll start this first edition by highlighting an item I get compliments on daily… seriously, EVERY DAY- Emery’s baby blanket!
I found this blanket on etsy while I was still pregnant with Emery. It was originally a Texas Longhorns blanket, but I contacted the shop owner, Shannon, who was more than happy to customize the football blanket to whichever team i’d like.
I noticed the minky fabric, which is incredibly soft, and knew I had to have it ASAP. Riley has always had a special blanket and I wanted Emery to have something as well.
We introduced the adorable blanket right away and Em loved it (of course we had to get a Detroit Lions print)!
~sound asleep, all snug and cozy~
We even had his first newborn photo shoot taken with it…
MissMontana’s focuses solely on this football blanket (ad photo shared below) and I was so bummed when she stopped making them back in the spring, but good news (no, GREAT news)… THEY’RE BACK!!!
And just in time for football season. If you know someone having a baby and want a cute shower gift- this is it! I actually just ordered another for a friend- I hope she doesn’t see this so it’s still a surprise!
I seriously get asked about this blanket every time we’re out- especially when dropping off or picking up Emery from my gyms daycare.
The blanket is 42×27 inches in size and runs $38.99 (selecting your favorite team is no additional cost) but I have a discount code just for you RKR readers- YAY! Use koester10 at checkout to get 10% off. I also suggest ‘liking’ the shops facebook page, as you may get lucky and see another discount offered there at some point.
Not only are these blankets adorable, but they’re well made and Shannon is super sweet and easy to work with. She communicated very well through out my ordering process too, which is always an added bonus when making purchases online.
Shannon makes these herself, so don’t expect the blanket overnight, however she does have a decent turn around of just a few weeks.
Emery will be 8 months in just a week (yes, already!) and we still use this blanket everyday- it is our go to for snuggle time!
I hope you’ll check out Miss Montana’s and let me know what you think.
*the feelings shared above are purely my own and I was not paid to write this- just wanted to share with you all something that I love!*
