Dad, don't read this post!

So, we have had our Honda Odyssey for almost 2 years. When we found out we were pregnant with Josh, our #3, we knew our tiny Toyota Corolla wouldn't work for us anymore. We were down in Klamath Falls at the time and there were slim pickings for cars there so I had my dad test drive a couple for us in Portland and he gave us the thumbs up for this one. We got our loan and drove up that weekend and purchased the van. Well, like I said, here it is coming on two years and I discovered something yesterday. We were on our way home from Stake Conference. Jake was driving and I was in the passenger seat. All of a sudden I said to Jake "My butt is getting warm. I think there is a warmer in the seat." Jake didn't think we had that feature but I could have sworn my dad had mentioned something about that when we first bought our car. I looked all over for a switch to see what had just happened. I quickly pulled out the Honda Odyssey manual in the glove compartment and found the section on "seat heaters." Yes. Our van has seat heaters. I must have accidentally pushed the switch down when I climbed into the car. Now, I promise you I am a fairly intelligent person, who is pretty anal about researching facts and details about things I'm about to purchase. So, how did I miss this?! (I'm sure my dad is rolling his eyes right now and chuckling a little to himself.) I feel like this little switch has opened a door to a whole new world that I never knew existed. As I was taking Ben to kindergarten this morning, I pushed that magical little switch and instantly it didn't feel like it was 40 degrees and rainy. I felt like I was in Jamaica, as my butt and back were wrapped in warmth. It's like I've just dug up a pile of cash that I was told was buried here years ago, but was forgotten, and now that I'm poor, I feel like I've hit the jackpot. It's that good. (Not really, but I had to make it sound somewhat dramatic.) Jake will probably laugh that I even posted about this, but I thought it was sort of amusing so a blog post it is.

Haha! Our van has those too, and I love it!! I'd probably love it more if I lived in Utah! Happy butt warming!

I'm jealous! Our jetta had that feature but alas...our new car does not have leather seats :( I'm so glad that you found the button!

oh my gosh, you're a dork...but now I should go read up on our car and make sure it doesn't have any hidden treasure features on it. Hmmm....

"Pretty anal," Jamie? In a post about butt warmers? You are sick.

Good, now you and Jake can stay "warm and cozy" in the car too. Have you tried that yet? I bet the seats recline too.

That butt warmer is going to come in very handy when it gets below 0 here in the nex tfew months. Glad you found it. I'll think of you every morning as my "A" freezes!
