Christmas Sweaters Day 3 & Christmas Nachos

Not everyone celebrates Christmas with jewel-toned reds and greens. In some places in the world, bright colors are used because December is a warm summer month. If you live in one of these places, I want you to know that there is a sweater for you. There’s a Christmas sweater for everyone.

To celebrate our southern friends, I made a platter of Christmas nachos for dinner. Okay, these are not really Christmas nachos made with love while thinking of others. These are delicious nachos made with only me in mind. Me, me, me. I am so selfish. I hope I’m not on the naughty list this year. Do you think Santa could be bribed with some nachos?

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? 😉

Meowy Christmas Sweater Day 1

It’s the most sweaterful time of the year! Yes, it’s back again and better that ever. It is the annual wearing of the ugly Christmas sweaters. Hooray!

I am usually against new sweaters. Christmas sweaters should be bedazzled and vintage. They should be found at garage sales and thrift stores and should smell like moth balls and grandma’s musky perfume. However, since we got Trudy last year, I figured I should get a cat sweater. So, I made an exception. I put this sweater on my Christmas wish list, and Jono’s Pops got it for me. Trudy loves it almost as much as she loves being held by me. Ha!

This weekend was my birthday, so that’s why there is a picture of me with lots of presents. I had a great time. I watched movies, put together a puzzle, made s’mores, and ate dinner with my friends. It even snowed in celebration of me. The weather can be so thoughtful sometimes. Anyway, Trudy and I have to go to bed now. We’ll be back with more sweaters tomorrow.

 

Christmas Velvet Vest

Today, Jono’s parents came for the holidays and got to see our house for the first time. They brought lots of presents and sweet treats. I was very excited. I couldn’t help but giving a few high kicks and shaking some gifts.

I asked my in-laws which vest I should wear over my new striped shirt today, and they both voted for this one. The buttons are a particular favorite of mine even though they are very difficult to maneuver. Family coming over just means that the big day is getting closer! Are you getting excited for Christmas?!

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!

My Vest of Many Colors

Dolly Parton may have patches on her britches and a coat of many colors, but I have sweater vest of many patches. That’s pretty close right?

I’ve spent most of the afternoon addressing Christmas cards because the early bird gets the worm. 😉 Have you already sent out your Christmas cards?
