Snuggie War.

As I have previously mentioned, Seth hates Snuggies. He thinks they are ridiculous.

Here's how much I care. Remember this? I got one anyway because when I visit him at his house I get very cold and Angie the dog wants me to pet her but it's nearly impossible to pet her or change the channels with a regualr blanket covering my arms.

Okay, that last one was wishful thinking. I don't really have need for the Snuggie due to the Tivo remote. Seth likes to have it in his hand, sort of like a scepter for the King. He does so graciously share much Tivo space for things he doesn't give a rip about, such as SYTYCD. He really is precious.

(My friend Kasey just told me, by the way, that she loves to turn hers around and wear it as a cape. That would be cool if she was three. But she's 22. Even That Girl draws the line someplace.)

One evening Seth and I were working on Save the Date cards (mostly Seth was working and I was just pretending to look busy) and I tweeted that I wished I had my Snuggie. Seth, sitting right next to me, got out his laptop and checked his facebook. He looked at me and said, "Seriously?" Then he proceeded to diss the Snuggie with a comment.

This got our whole church buzzing. Who was for, who was against, who thought they were practical, and who thought they were a glorified bathrobe (that wounded me, Nicole). It was the Snuggie discussion heard round the world.
For the record, I'd like to go ahead and say that I have yet to actually don the Snuggie at Seth's house, so in his defense he has yet to see the real practicality of the thing. But that doesn't mean that this war of words has stopped. So last night, my SIL pulled out the big guns.

The piece de resistance, if you will.

This photo went up on facebook last night with the caption, "Look Uncle Sethy. Mini snugglette Lovers."

Like he can keep hating on the Snuggie when these three look so dang cute.

Are you on Team Snuggie or a Snuggie Hater?

either, way, those three little Snugglettes are adorable, wouldn't you agree?

I think I am a snuggie wanter, but dear hubbie is a hater so I have refrained from purchasing one, although for blogging they would be very handy...

I like that they make you look like a monk, and I'd say they are more than just a glorified bathrobe. (Now, Kasey--wearing it backward--that IS just a robe!)

My 8 year old son wants one so bad he can hardly stand it!

I am so in love with the "idea" of a snuggie and I'm pretty sure my kiddos would love them too! So I'm a little envious of that picture of your three nieces in the snuggies..I'm thinking they'd be good Christmas presents for the kids and Praying they are a super early bird sale item on Black Friday! The kids version of the snuggies even come with a "free" book light! HOW cool is that?? I'll stand behind you 100% on the Pro-Snuggie Platform! LOL!!

I think I am a hater of Snuggies. Because *ahem* I have been calling my dog a snuggie for much longer than I knew these bizarre things were called snuggies.
My pup is a Snuggie. All Bullies are snuggies in my mind.
Now, I will say 1) I am ALWAYS cold, and so it seems practical and 2) I want to be warmer. (again, practical for me to own one). However, I think they look silly. But very cute on your neices.
I think the name needs to be given up because my puppa is Snuggie. Not a blankety thing.

What a cute photo! I think I would like one, but don't currently own one.

YOu can't hate on wearing the Snuggie bacwards until you see it. You say robe, to which I will agree in the nedieval since of a royal robe. It has bell sleeves and is floor length, and that is NOT a robe you can find at Walmart.

I'm just saying don't hate, appreciate!

p.s. I wish someone would wear a leopard print Snuggie to my classes! It would really spice up Histrical Methodology!
