Ugly Christmas Sweater Party 2011

Until a few weeks ago I had never heard of an ugly Christmas sweater party. How bout you?
Apparently they're becoming "a thing."
Here is our rowdy crew and our "we put the UG in ugly" sweaters. . . . 
and since I'm a pretty silly girl and it was a pretty silly-icious night, I'm starting this photo tour with a silly pic. 
                Deal with it.
 Crazy times!
Our hostess with the mostest
Brandi is the only person I know who can pull off a full sweater ensemble such as this and look so dang cute. Geez, if I didn't LOVE HER so much I'd hate her. bahaha
 Ang showing off her, shirt
She bought that shirt last year after Chrimu. 
You were wrong for that Ang. W-R-O-N-G
She won a prize for best (worst) sweater.

Jenny and her daughter were headed to another ugly sweater party so they dined and dashed. They found these treasures at the Goodwill. 
Gotta love the Goodwill. And you gotta wonder who thought lace would make a good snowman... and puff paint all over the pants, really? On the back of one leg, someone with good penmanship wrote Let it snow. Apparently they wanted it to snow on their overalls.

Tonyia improvised and did a lil sewing. One ornament casualty happened in the car on the ride over when she turned the steering wheel kinda sharp Oops easy now. 
And Cin admits she probably wore the Snoopy sweater a few years ago and would still be wearin' him if we wouldn't ride her like Sea Biscuit about it. We keep it real like that. Can't be having our peeps rollin' up in work lookin' a hot mess. 
The pants - another Goodwill find. 
She won a prize for best accessories. She had stuff pinned and poked all over.
Lemme explain this pic of me - 
this is how you look when you're playing a game and the card you draw says: Dance an Irish jig while singing The Wheels on the Bus Go 'Round and 'Round. 

Have I mentioned Lyndy doesn't dance? 

But Lyndy is very competitive, so bump modesty and any sliver of pride. Dance we shall.
I barely got the words out while laughing hysterically and dancing horribly. 

My dear friend Brandi has a fancy dancy camera that I forgot takes VIDEO. And yes, she recorded me without my permission of course but I haven't been able to bring myself to watch it yet. And don't be lookin' for it on this blog any time soon.  
When I was getting dressed Anthony said, I didn't think it was a Halloween party.
Pretty sure he was glad it was a girls only event.

Brandi actually loaned me the sweater. My skirt was a Goodwill find and the leggings you will remember from my bird in a cage costume circa October 31. Had the snowman socks and red shoes already, and my mom supplied the Santa football necklace and crocheted Santa pin. The red snowflake in my hair is courtesy of a lovely Bath & Body Works package. lol 

Notice Jenny's black bar shades (think back page of Glamour)... we all needed a pair 
Here's hopin' this becomes an annual event.
