Snuggles


Yesterday I renewed my license at the DMV.

Today I got pulled over by a cop.

And guess who didn't have their new license with them?  yep.  me.

But luckily I wasn't breaking the law.  Just a broken tail light.

Unluckily, I'm pretty sure at least 6 of my neighbors and friends saw me pulled over.  embarrassing!

And did you know that one of the routine questions asked these days is, "Do you have any firearms, bazookas, or chainsaws in the car?"  Really?  chainsaws?  bazookas?  I thought he was joking.  He didn't appreciate my chuckle.  

And did you also know that one of the best ways to get over your nervous breaking-the-law jitters is to receive THIS as a late Christmas present from one of your friends?  Nothing says relaxation like a snuggle wrap! 



 Now excuse me while I shuffle around the house in my fleecy piece of heaven!

Ali!!! Did you get pulled over on the way home from Win-Co? I was just thinking about getting pulled over today and how nervous I feel when it happens. I hate it!

Don't trip. I hear those things can be dangerous.

Bazookas and snuggle wraps.

SNUGGLES! My daughter was just telling me tonight that we should have one! Knowing, but acting like I didn't know what a snuggle wasI asked her what it looked like: ( her reply) "It has long sleeves and is cozy, we need to be cozy in our house". Simple, but so funny that you got one, Rock on!

I have been wanting one of those snuggles...now I will covet yours.

pulled over anywhere near the church or your house is NOT the way to do it. Most embarrassing! At least you weren't on your phone while you had a broken tail light!

well I've gotten pulled over twice here in Cali and both times were right in front of my kids school! Poor kids... everyone knows who that big van belongs to!
Oh, and I'm quite jealous of the snuggle.

Do they come in extra tall and extra skinny? Or at least extra tall and extra skinny with a spare tire around my waist.

You are so cute in your snuggle wrap. But how do you move your arms in those things...

Hmmm....I just got pulled over the other day as well. Unfortunatetly for me, I was speeding. The boys were mortified,it was hard not to laugh.

I would roast to death in that thing, but Matt would like it. I'll have to show him the pics. Ah being pulled over...kinda like getting a root canal-no matter how nice the dentist is, it still sucks! I think by the time I went on my mission I had been pulled over nearly a dozen times. Hate it!

I'm so jealous of the snuggie. James and I have had many a good laugh whenever we see the commercial.

COry saw these on TV and thought they were hilarious. I think it's the best idea ever invented.
