Ugly Sweaters=Good Times!

I went to my first ever Ugly Sweater Party, and let me tell you what, I can't wait to go to more!! When I went home to Utah last weekend, I snagged a sweater from my mom. It was given to her by my grandma, who got it from my Great Aunt Ann after she passed away. (PS, I absolutely LOVED my Aunt Ann. She had the greatest laugh I have ever heard.) It is HUGE! Well, you can see what it looks like from the pictures. There were some pretty awesome sweaters at this party. It makes you wonder who came up with the sweater designs, and why in the world some people would buy them. But you know what? It's a great thing ugly sweaters were invented, so that Ugly Sweater Parties could exist. There was some great food and great entertainment. My personal favorite, besides everyone's sweaters of course, was the Charlie Brown skit. Haven't laughed so hard in a while (wait, I laugh hard all the time. But this was harder than usual).
My BFF Jared had the awesome glasses that I am wearing. Aren't they the best? They said that I looked the best out of everyone that had tried them on. Not sure if that's a compliment or not, but I'll take it. It was fun acting like an old grandma for a night.
This picture cracks me up. I totally look like an old person, sitting back and enjoying what's going on around me.

Macquel and I. I love how she's holding her drink. Love this girl!

The Roomies! Jessica made her sweater, and Hil got hers at Christopher & Banks. I really love her turtleneck. She also has a Santa pin, and you can't see it, but she got an awesome hair bow..if you click on the picture and enlarge it you can see the sweaters better. (And an added bonus: The height difference in this picture. Hilarious!!)

Stephanie and I showing off our sweaters. I think hers is cute, opposite of ugly!
