Headed outdoors? Don’t forget these fabulous blankets!

There’s nothing worse then heading to the local park, finding the perfect spot under a shady tree to sit and watch the kids play to only find out that it’s completely wet where you just sat. Ugh…you know it’s happened to you and to me (yesterday in fact). While I’m not a fan of having wet and soggy pants, I am a fan of outdoor blankets that can be put down on the ground and not absorb wetness or dirt. So now that I’ve sat in wet about 25 times, I finally decided it’s time to arm myself with the right gear and actually keep it in the trunk of the car so we’re always ready for impromptu stop at the park!
