Basketball and a Snuggie

Tonight Luke and I had tickets to go to a NBA game. I always enjoy these games, however if you remember, last time we went to a game we sat court-side. This time we were about as high up as you could get! It just wasn't the same! I think I was created to live the high life court-side! :-)
I wore my pedometer again today and I have almost reached 10,000 steps!!
But do not be jealous of my madd step skillz.

The only reason I have so many steps today is because my thrifty husband made us park about 2 miles away from the basketball venue because it was free parking.

People, I would gladly trade the steps on this trusty ole pedometer for a ride in one of those carriages pulled by a man on a bike.

The pedometer AKA My new BFF: It fits snugly onto my pants and is hidden by my shirt. So great!
Speaking of snugly.....On to the exciting news:

Luke has a good friend named Will, and now, through marriage, Will has become one of my good friends. We tend to have lots of fun when the three of us are together. Well tonight Luke gave Will a key to our apartment because he had to get something out of it and we would be at the BBall game. Will sent Luke a text and said that he left a surprise for me.
What was the surprise??

None other than the SNUGGIE!!!

I know they are laughed at.

I know they are ridiculous looking.

However if you had to spend one night in my body temperature then you would understand my need for the wonderful Snuggie.
I was seriously so excited!!! It was like Christmas morning. I was jumping up and down when I saw the Snuggie box. And do not think those steps went unnoticed on my pedometer!
Luke thought it was quite funny how excited I was about a blanket with sleeves!
I am now ready to watch TV cuddled up in my new blanket!!

Tara Gibson said...

Taryn said...

I am super impressed that you reach 10,000 steps a day! I can barely average 5,000. You must walk a ton at work! Good for you!

Carolyn said...

No way!! HILARIOUS! Now, is the snuggie the one with the pockets, or is that the slanket??

Becky said...

Oh wow! Those things are hilarious! You look cute in yours though, what a sweet friend!

Is your pedometer accurate? I wore won a lot last spring and my husband didn't think my pedometer kept an accurate track of my actual steps. I love the snuggie! One thing I hate is when a blanket isn't long enough to cover your feet. The Snuggie looks MORE than long enough for that!

Naturally Caffeinated Family said...

haha! That's awesome, so nice of Will! The color is nice too :) I used to so want one before we moved to super warm state! Although I have still been known to say (and get made fun of by my Aunt) that I'm cold here too :) And I have heard of the 10k steps with the pedometer! I kept wanting to try it but never did! And the NBA game sounds like so much fun, especially courtside :)

Lindsey said...

Oh the snuggie looks so warm and cozy, what a great surprise!!

Sweet Simplicity said...

HAHA!! That thing is huge!! You will have to let us know if you attend an outdoor event with it. You know like on the commercials...

Alex and Jill said...

I love NBA games...so much fun!

Okay, only you could make a snuggie look cute! LOL

Faith said...

Girl, you are too cute. I ditto what Jill said! I was thinking the same thing. How sweet of Will!

Heather said...

LOVE you in the snuggie! That is a pretty blue and I think I might need one of these! You are such a sweetie...I think we have the same thought-processes, too. Love ya!

*~! megs !~* said...

I think the Snuggie is hideous.

Then tell me why I'm dying to own one.

And why I was so upset on Christmas Day when no one took my request for one seriously?!?!

Ellie said...

The Snuggie is awesome! I've never seen one, but it looks like what I need in my office. I keep my heat up but walk around shivering - enough so that people notice and feel the need to comment - through the rest of the office.

My name is Megan... said...

That snuggie is TOO funny!!!!! The blue color though, I like, haha. Where was the game?? oh - and I think my husband and I should come to listen to your husb's band! when? where?

Becca said...

I can't believe you once got to sit court-side -- my kiddos would be so jealous!! the picture of you in the snuggie crack me up! :-) is it comfie?! i hope so! have fun wearing it :-)
