Sorry, Snuggie - you're just too comfy

So I finally caved and bought my daughter a Snuggie. Yes, yes, you know, those gigantic blanket things with sleeves.

Personally, I think they look just plain silly, but she's been wanting one for ages. And not just any Snuggie, of course, but the "Peace and Love" Snuggie with multi-colored peace signs all over it, if you can dig that, man.

She keeps telling me it is "sooooo comfortable," and that I just have to try it on.

Absolutely not. First of all, if it really was that comfortable and I did decide I wanted one, it would be a very bad idea. Anything large and forgiving that lets me comfortably eat my fill from the Pringles can is no friend to me.

Besides, I think it would weird out my husband. He even gets nervous when I wear my baggy sweats for too long. "Soooo," he'll ask casually. "Are we just giving up, then?"

Sorry, Snuggie. I'm just not comfortable dressing, well, that comfortable.


  1. It is sad and pathetic, but I will never be able to get rid of my Snuggie. I've gotten to the point where I'm not ashamed to say it. Good luck with the resisting!

  2. See!!! I knew it!! Once you try them on, you'll never take them off!! Sigh. It isn't looking good for me, is it?

  3. I just found you through Bloggy Moms! I don't have a Snuggie mostly because the commercials during the holidays drive me crazy! Looking forward to reading more.

  4. I've been resisting my son's snuggie for about a year now! I'm clumsy - I could see me knocking over drinks and everything else with those sleeves!

  5. Well, I'm afraid to say that we all have them ... yes, all 4 of us .... it's sort of like a minivan... you swear you would never get one. They are totally "uncool" and you make fun of people that own them but once you get one, you don't know what you would do without it. :)
    Found you on bloggy moms. Stop by for a laugh & hopefully some inspiration at

  6. Your husband sounds hilarious - though not as funny as that snuggie sounds!
