This favorite thing - JJ Cole Essentials Blanket - was a Christmas gift from my sister-in-law April. This beach trip was the first time we got to use it and I love it! It's a 5 x 5 (feet) blanket can go anywhere! It's a durable material that is easy to clean and it folds up into an easy carrying case. We brought it to the beach with us as our beach blanket and it was perfect. It unfolded in under 10 seconds and folded up in 30! I'm not really sure what the material is but it didn't collect sand and if you spill something on it you can wipe it clean very easily. It's the perfect gift for someone that has everything. I'm definitely adding it to my list of things I give out.
Here's the product description from Amazon - JJ Cole Essentials Blanket – Blue Bubble/Cocoa The Essentials Blanket is a year-round, go-anywhere, travel blanket with a spacious 5 ft x 5 ft spread.

With the sturdy sewn-in insert it quickly and easily folds into a messenger bag for convenient transport and storage.
The Leo Hillinger Pinot Grigio remains a favorite thing (I was drinking it this past weekend) and is probably my favorite Pinot Grigio. It's the perfect wine for a spring/summer day. And I love the price, I can usually get it for under $15 a bottle. I always stock up on this when I'm at the wine store.
