New Bean Bag for Our Home

Well, we just found ourselves some of the most comfortable furniture we’ve ever had! Hi all, Deborah here and we’re taking a break from talking about fishing, to talk a little bit more about the latest neat thing I bought.

I just picked up one of these from the giant bean bags website. It came in pretty quick and I was surprised to see it in 2 boxes. But it wasn’t that difficult to figure out. It came with instructions and I’m a pretty smart cookie so I was able to do it all by myself.

So it turns out that one of the boxes has the cover in it, and the other box has all the foam filling. That foam filling is what makes this huge bed sized bean bag special. Unlike other cheaper brands that have actual beans or beads inside of their bean bags, this bean bag has furniture grade foam. It is high-quality polyurethane foam, the same kind used in furniture.

So, once you get it out of the vacuum wrapping, you dump it into the liner. Then, once it’s in the liner, you stick it into the cover and zip that baby up. It takes about a day, for all the foam filling to let get air to it and expand. It comes wrapped up really tight so that you can ship it smaller. But once it starts to get air to it it’ll gradually expand over the course of the day. By the end of the day it’ll be full sized.

We got the 7-foot round one in black. I like the black color. It goes really well with our living room and our décor in there. Believe me, when they say 7 feet round they made 7 feet round. It is a lot bigger than I thought, even though I knew what the dimensions would be. But I guess that’s what you get with a giant bean bag, right? Anyway, if you’d like to check one out and get it for yourself you can visit their website here. Also they have social accounts where you’ll probably see me too. Once you buy one you can post it and then share it and you can see all the other people who have thought the same thing as you.

One really nice thing about this bean bag is that the cover is machine washable. You can take the whole thing off and wash it. That’s really good because if you’ve got kids, they can make a mess as you know. Also, even if you don’t have kids, it’s nice to be able to just relax with some popcorn and a drink while watching a movie. You don’t need to worry about spilling something because if you do you can just wash it out and it’s not really a big deal. It is pretty big and I would say it’s cumbersome to try to wash it. But, it is doable. It’s not the easiest thing in the world, but you can wash the cover. Personally, I prefer to just keep it clean as best as possible and then I don’t have to worry about washing it.


Fishing Resources

Hi All! Debra here with, and I wanted to share with you some useful resources on Flats fishing I found. Most people learn to fish on the flats here in Texas from friends and family. But, if you’ve got no one to teach you there are many places online willing to lend you a helping hand. Even if you’re an experienced angler, you can always get the help of weather and tide reports.

So, here are some useful resources to help you navigate the fishing flats.

The Flats Guide is a useful Facebook page that is all about fishing in Texas flats. Here, members can share their experiences, photos, and upload videos. This is a great community to join if fishing is your passion.

It is specific to Texas flats style fishing and even has helpful tips such as the best approaches, how to deal with grass, beating the edges, and more. Whether you’re drifting, poling, or wading, this site will give you some best practices to get the most out of your fishing experience.

A nice forum to be a part of is which has board for Texans, specifically. I believe they have temporarily moved their board to Facebook, but are a great resource and will probably be back up soon.
