So today is the BIG day! The Special Olympics World Winter Games torch will arrive at City Hall in Boise today... we have full coverage coming up at 4pm. I'll be live at the Depot, and our crew will be staged from the Depot to City Hall as we show you the final leg of this world journey! Gold Medalist Kristin Armstrong will be there too! Tune in today at 4pm... you can also watch it online here at


Did you watch the Today Show this morning? If not, you missed Matt and Meredith and the gang wearing SNUGGIES. Do you know what a Snuggie is? Have you seen the infomercial? If not, here is the TODAY crew modeling them!

(It's a blanket with arms... that you wear to lounge around the house. LOL.)

I have a confession to make! I recently ordered the SNUGGIE as a gift for James (My husband). He saw it on TV, and thought it would be great to watch TV in. (I'm serious) We joked about it so much, I had to order it for him for Christmas. I also ordered one for me! Why not? A "his and hers" pair! Doug agreed to model the SNUGGIES with me -

But I have to say, it's hard to get work done around here with a pair of SNUGGIES in the newsroom... they are pretty cozy...

PS: The mint SNUGGIES go in the closet at my house when we're not actually wearing them. :) They totally clash with my couches.
