Ugly Sweaters Anyone?

My sister Krystal told me about an ugly sweater party she was having. It sounded like a lot of fun! Unfortunatly she lives 4 hours away and it wasn't practical for me to attend her party. So Loren and I thought we would try an adult only ugly sweater party of our own. Unsure how this would go, we kept it very low key. However, I think our guests would concur, it was a hit! So we will definitely have another one--a much larger one--next year! Here are a few pics.

Now...a few of you on facebook and Laura on her comment have asked where we dug up these lovely sweaters. First of all, no it wasn't in my closet. :D Second of all, where is the best place to find retro sweaters for such a party? Well a thrift store of course! That is where mine and Loren's sweaters came from.

~Our Ugly Sweater Guinea Pigs. They look like they had a good time don't ya think? :) Not sure what's up with all the tongues. It wasn't a creepy party despite what this picture might suggest. ;) L--->R Lisa, Eric, Shamae, Loren, Jessie, & Kelly (Don't ya just love my sweater?)
We ate lots of food and after played Christmas Charades. Jessie being "Grandma Got Ran Over By a Reindeer.)
-Me and my gingerbread house.
-Kelly Rockin around the Christmas Tree
-Kelly and Loren. They cracked us up with their costumes. They looked great. I think this is my favorite picture from the night. hahahaha

Oh my gosh...the sweaters take me back to the 80's all the way or maybe early 90's. The picture of Loren and Kelly is hiliarious they can really rock the whole nerd thing to say the least.

By the way Shamae I think I may have had a sweater like that once....scary how things come back in style!!!!
