Day 5 Christmas Sweaters: Mix-and-Match


During the holiday season, it’s hard to keep up with all of the outfits you’ll need to wear to Christmas parties and various get-togethers. This is the perfect time to buy mix-and-match separates.


Here’s what you do:

  1. Go to Wal-Mart
  2. Buy sweatpants and sweatshirts in red, white, and green
  3. Paint sweatshirts with puffy paint
  4. Wear different combinations of aforementioned sweatpants and sweatshirts
  5. Feel sexy and confident in your new mix-and-match wardrobe

Blinking during picture taking or batting my eyelashes sexily? You decide.

There are endless ways you can wear your new wardrobe! My husband finds me especially attractive when I wear these versatile cotton-polyester blend pants. He says sweet things to me like, “How many days in a row are you going to wear your red sweatpants?” and “Do you have to wear your sweatpants so high?” There’s nothing like keeping the spark alive during the holidays, right? 😉


Christmas Trees and TV


This beautiful new throw is another birthday gift btw. 

There’s nothing more I like during the holidays (or any other day) than to sit in my recliner loveseat and watch TV. The only thing better is to sit in my recliner loveseat and watch TV while wearing an embroidered and beaded Christmas tree-themed sweater. (Say that five times fast.)



This sweater has lots of neat details, including the faux buttons on the outside. Decorative buttons are a pain to unbutton, so this clever sweater has regular buttons on the inside. Brilliant!


These pajamas were also a birthday present. I’m flush with prezzies!

Well, it’s time to get back to my regularly scheduled television watching.


Please get out of my way now.

In Memoriam of Our Mini Snowman


It was much warmer today, and I was disheartened to see all of the friendly neighborhood snowmen melting away. Jono and I made a miniature snowman this Saturday, but there’s not much left of him now.


In honor of our evaporating friends, I decided to wear a snowman sweater today.



Today we went to Krispy Kreme to get their limited edition gingerbread donuts. If you are reading this on December 13, then you’re too late! You can’t have any. They’re here for one day only. Ahhhh!!!!


In your face, losers who didn’t get gingerbread donuts.

Another calorie-laden thing happened today as well. The ladies at my church gave me a small birthday party. They bought two cakes: one to eat at the church and one to take home. I’m very spoiled.


Did you know that Christmas sweaters are good at hiding holiday weight? 😉

The 4th Day of Christmas Sweaters

Okay, technically this is a sweatshirt, but I still count it. My husband bought this sweatshirt with matching red sweatpants for my birthday back when we were dating. He now regrets it. He especially complains about the baggy sweatpants. What can I say? They are very comfortable and have pockets!


Well, I have a crazy hard Thomas Kincade puzzle and a cuppa ginger tea waiting for me, so I better go. Happy holidays!
