First things first...

Also, thank you to everyone who entered my giveaway yesterday!
 I was blown away with how many people entered and so happy that I got to be included in the 12 Days of Blogger Christmas. Make sure you go visit the girl {the brains and the operation} behind #12BG, Stephanie's blog, to enter her today!

A special congratulations to Meghan on winning mine :)

Over the weekend, Billy and I plus some of my girlfriends attended Alicia's Ugly Christmas Sweater partay. We had only met once before at the Columbus Blogger Meet up, but had so much fun that night and wanted to do it again! Holly and Kelsey came too so it was like a little Christmas Blate. There's not much I love more than finding a ridiculous outfit to wear, an excuse to eat yummy food until I'm going to explode {to the new ones here: you'll learn my love for food very quickly}, and spending time with old and new friends!

Billy and I kind of waited until the last minute to get an outfit {hey, we were busy Christmas shopping!} so when we couldn't find any ugly sweaters, we went to plan B.


dun. dun. dun.


Here's what we came up with.




a preppy Santa {somewhat} and his reindeer??
in a onesie?

Sounds good to me.



Left: the hostess and myself
Right: My bff Linds and her light up sweater


Alicia was an amazing host! She DECKED the halls of her condo (literally!) with anything and everything Christmas. She even changed out normal lightbulbs for red and green ones...who would've thought of that?! Probably not me. Get this...she even had Chick-fil-A cater the party AND she had sushi. Girlfriend did an amazing job.

Alicia..feel free to invite me over anytime. No, really... ;)


Take this for example.


So cute, right?
It was so yummy.



and some of the spread...



You better believe I ate most of what is on that table.
I think Billy had like 5 plates, too.

Now let's play a little game....shall we?!


Who in this picture can you recognize
 from their blogs?!




I spy Kelsey
I spy Holly (being inappropriate)
and I spy Alicia



If you're wondering what my girlfriend Christine on the left is holding up, it's her gift card she won for Ugliest outfit! She duck taped her stocking on to the front of her onesie for an uglier touch. So creative! Overall, the party was a blast and I can't wait until the next meet up with these girls.....aka Michael Stag. No other words needed.


Have you attended an Ugly sweater party this year?!
If so, where did you find your sweater?
Maybe next year I'll make one
{or just wear my onesie again-I love that thing-so warm and cozy}


I also had my very first Christmas celebration on Sunday with my Mom's side of the family. Every year a family friend dresses up as Santa Claus and surprises all the kids with gifts.

 He does an AMAZING job and
let's be honest, he looks pretty legit.


Ho Ho Ho!


I think I'm ready for Christmas now :)

  2. Super cute. I need an adult onesie stat. Where is that one from?? I've seen them at Wal-Mart but they are covered in tinkerbell and winnie the pooh. If I'm already rocking a onesie, I'm gonna need it to not have cartoon characters on it.
