We don't Need No Stinkin' Snuggies

Today I noticed that something that I own looks suspiciously like a Snuggie already.

My bathrobe.

It's long and fleecey and even has a hood (which I don't wear) Alas, it is not leopard print. But when turned around, works much the same way as the Sunggie. How do I know this? Well I tried it out of course. And laughed the whole time.

After dinner tonight I announced my new discovery and got the bathrobe out. At one point soon after that ,all 3 of us had our bathrobes on like Snuggies. I noted that the hood could be used to store remote controls or catch food from falling on the couch (because if I'm going to be a couch potato I might as well be sloppy to boot!)

I was joking about it because I really do want the leopard print one and I'm not about to go walking around my house with my bathrobe on backward. However, after I put my daughter to bed, I came downstairs and there was my husband, sitting on the couch, wearing his darn bathrobe backward while using the laptop.... Seriously.... I don't even know what more to say about that.....

Monks had better robes. They covered front and back.

Well I'm trying to picture a leopard print fleece monk's robe and it's looking a little too much like a caftan for my liking.....I'm not at all ready to join the House Dress Set....

Giving Will the benefit of the doubt -- perhaps he was cold, but due to his bad back it was less painful to put the robe on this way. Just a thought...

This back thing is only going to cut it for a few more days.

Someone may have already sent this to you but my friend sent it to me - she said it took her an hour to make.
