I'm happy to share that I attended my very first Ugly Sweater Party over the past weekend. I can't believe that I've been missing out on so much fun for the past few years! I pride myself on going all out for themed parties, and this weekend was no exception. After finding out that the owner of the ugliest sweater would get a prize, the hubs and I got straight to work. Step one, peruse every thrift shop in the county to find an ugly Christmas sweater. Luckily, we didn't have to look very long, although the sweaters that we found were just not ugly enough.. which brings me to step two, print out as many Michaels coupons as I can find so I can go hot-glue-gun crazy all over the place. Done and done. Step three? Throw those ugly sweaters on, grab my home-made potluck dish and white elephant gift, and get the show on the road! Unfortunately, neither I nor my husband (aka Mr. Nipples... if you look close enough at the picture below, you could probably figure out why he got that nickname) won the title of the Ugliest Sweater King/Queen, but that's ok, because we had an amazing time being silly with great friends, and that's all that truly matters!
