Really. It’s like they have no idea. Most of you guys have never met me but you know how I feel about El Snuggie. I mean I have a category on my blog entitled “Snuggies are awesome.” Well, this year for Christmas I asked for the Deluxe Snuggie (the one with the pockets), and my father bought me (wait for it…) a “Premium Softie” instead.

I’m so not lying.

I joked on Facebook that it was just a lined sleeping bag with arm holes:


But I finally decided to open the box and I realized that there aren’t even any arm holes. It’s just a blanket — and not a very big one — with a couple snaps and a zipper.


Nuff said.

My mom bought me a jar that I could put spare change in that counts the change as it goes in:


Cool in theory. I currently throw my spare change into Arizona Iced Tea containers. But in reading the directions I realized that if the batteries die and you have to replace them, the jar resets to zero. Um… Plus, what better gift on Christmas than a reminder that you can just barely afford to do your laundry?


It wasn’t a total loss of course. I did get a CVS gift card (Yay!!!) and a gift card to Starbucks. AND I mooched some cute sweaters my mom bought but was never gonna wear, so I’ll say I made out well ;)

How was your Christmahanukwanzaka? Hope you’re enjoying this holiday season with family and friends.

Happy Belated Birthday Baby Jesus and Happy Almost New Year!!! See you on the other side.

    Haha Jenny, I don’t think they regifted me. Because I can’t imagine who would have given them those gifts. But I do think maybe they bought my gifts while they were waiting at some store in the checkout line ;)
