Tonight I look forward to snuggling. My husband may or may not be involved. It depends on whether he is willing to share me with my new bright pink purchase. That’s right. I got a Snuggie! I broke down… sort of… Due to my Staples Rewards card, I got a big check in the mail to use at my local Staples store. After browsing and browsing through technology options, organization options, and even the Crayola options, I decided to spend some of my hard-earned cash on a Snuggie for me and my sister-in-law. (Yes, I did earn it through spending money at Staples for the above options throughout 2009, and yes, it was hard to spend the money.)
When I pulled it out of the box at home, I was elated. It is very soft, and I have a feeling that it will get softer over time and through several washes. (Let’s just hope it doesn’t fall apart during those several washes too!) Since our master bedroom is in a finished attic, and we don’t have much insulation, our room gets quite cold during the winter. We have a space heater, but it’s not the same as being truly warm. And I do have a blanket, but after the kids go to bed, I’m often on the computer, reading, paying bills, eating dessert, and/or drinking a beer. I cannot do any of those activities with a blanket over my arms. That’s where the Snuggie comes in. It’s going to be great. I cannot wait to use it tonight – to snuggle up warm and cozy while I watch last night’s episode of The Bachelor last week’s Thursday night line-up. I hope Jeremy is up for snuggling with a bright pink blob of warmth!
