Ugly Sweaters

Anyone that knows me should know that I don’t like ugly sweater parties. I dislike them. I actually kind of hate them. Now you may ask why I hate them so much.

“Everyone loves a good ugly sweater party.”

“They have companies devoted to ugly sweaters.”

“They are so fun!”

Blah blah blah. I don’t care! Why in the hell would you want to dress ugly to go out?!?! I just don’t get it! I am all about wearing comfy clothes around the house; with my hair in a pony tail and an over sized sweater. But if you are asking me to go out to a party and not dress up I may smack you!

Here is why this post is needed today, Tyson started a new job at the end of November and their holiday party is an ugly sweater party. Who the hell makes these kinds of decisions?!?! I just can’t get over it! Especially because, according to Tyson, this is a more ‘button up’ type of start up company from any other he’s worked at in the Bay Area.

It doesn’t seem like I have much of a choice in this though. It’s either get a night out of the house, without the kids, and look like a damn fool or stay home with my children and have Tyson be annoyed with me for throwing such a fit. I think the option is quite clear.

As clear as it is, I am not thrilled with the idea. With that being said, I have had some fun looking at all the terrible sweaters. Do you go with the funny reindeers humping each other sweater, the legit old lady ugly sweater, or something pop culture? Tyson had a great idea of getting me an “I sleigh” sweater. My love for Beyonce may lessen the blow of an ugly sweater party, a teeny tiny little bit.

Here are my top 4 picks.

1-May all your Christmases Bae White! Who doesn’t love the golden girls? If you don’t get this sweater, we can’t be friends.

2-Clearly I love beer and any sweater that states that is a win in my book.I sleigh all day; close enough to I sleigh and clearly states my love for queen B

3-I sleigh all day; close enough to I sleigh and clearly states my love for queen B

4- This one is just more traditional and something drunk me would likely say.

Merry Christmas everyone!

P.S. I just can’t bring myself to wear the traditional old lady sweater.
