Snuggie Love

Ahh, sorry for being completely MIA for a while there. I spent all night Thursday making peanut butter bon-bons for my boyfriend, was up in Milwaukee all weekend and then was up at my parents' house last night and just got back a half hour ago....phew! I somehow managed to squeeze in two big shopping sprees (swimsuits, books, gym shoes, eek!), a trip to see Confessions of a Shopaholic, a Mariokart marathon, some quality time with the bf, another Marquette basketball game, a couple of crazy nights out, a plate of green eggs and ham, and a trip to the doctor. Yikes bikes.

And great news! As of this weekend, I am a very proud owner of a Snuggie (feel free to laugh). Yep, my boyfriend surprised me with a red Snuggie AND book light (free with purchase, of course) for Valentine's Day. He even bought himself one to match. Hilarious, right? I have to admit, they are ridiculously comfortable. I napped in mine on Saturday and it was probably the best nap of my life.

Over the last few days I've realized that I am absolutely incapable of telling a lie (a story for another time), I'm developing some kind of food allergy (not sure what though), I'm terrible at Mariokart on the Wii and that you guys have really interesting stories. So thanks for sharing! 

And is it sad that I love Mondays because of The Bachelor? It's such a terrible show, but I love
 every single overly-dramatic second. I can't even wait...

UPDATE:
I suppose I couldn't write about the Snuggie without posting some pictures. Silly me. So I tried to show off just how true some of the claims from the Snuggie infomercial really are:


Oh my goodness, you really can read a book and still keep your arms warm! Thank God.




Yes, it's true. You can use your hands to talk on the phone, use the computer, eat a snack, brush your hair, whatever AND still stay warm. Is there anything you can't do in a Snuggie? 
I think not.

If you haven't seen the infomercial, you need to watch it now:


You can even hold a baby? (gasp) It's a Snuggie miracle.

OMG you got a Snuggie and you went to Milwaukee? Awesome. My family lives there!

Wow, can I see a picture of you napping in the Snuggie? I keep hearing about this and fear one might be in my future

OMG! LOL! I cannot believe you got one of these! My bf and I haaaate those commercials. It's almost as bad as ShamWoooooow!

Haha I know, it was one of those infomercials we love to hate. Kind of like the "Listen Up". It's definitely a gag gift that's actually quite comfy. Surprisingly enough, it really is soft and warm.

I can't even hold a straight face if I even see the word snuggie. So pretty much every time you wrote that word I cracked up. And then the pictures! I love how you're posing like the woman to show it's uses. Nice.
