Ugly Sweater Party!!

It's snowing here in Illinios & we had another wonderful weekend for the books!  I can't believe Christmas is only 16 days away!  I am almost done with my shopping, just a few left to take care of, & not many days left to do it!! Probably going to finish up today from the comfort of my couch since it's the perfect day for staying in, watching Christmas movies, & nursing a little hangover.  We got some of our Christmas presents wrapped  yesterday & our tree now looks complete!!

Last night was Jessica's 6th annual ugly sweater party.  She always does a great job hosting, & she sure does look the part of most festive host.  She makes a ton of food, drinks like reindeer pee, & has games & prizes for the male & female best ugly sweater!  If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram (@lenaridley) you've probably already seen some of the festive goodness from last night.

the winners!! Matt & Kassi Herrmann!! She made the sweaters herself.

couldn't handle the Jim Beam.... 

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!!  This week I will have a baseline ultrasound done & start my injections.  I'm pretty nervous about it, but I will do whatever I have to do for this to work for us.  I will definitely be documenting the process pretty closely.  One day I will have to show my kids what we went through to have them! 

Happy Holidays!


  1. Such a cute idea for a party! I've always wanted to go to one of those! Looks like y'all had so much fun! Everybody's sweaters looked extra ugly ;)

    1. yep, ever year she does it like a Whoo... always looks so cute!

  3. My husband announced he wanted to have an Ugly Sweater Party this year. We're hosting NYE though so I don't know about having 2 big parties.. I'm lazy lol

    I'm jealous you're almost finished up the Christmas shopping. I still have pretty much ALL of mine to do and still a tremendous amount of crap to scratch off my Christmas Bucket List!

    1. They really are such fun parties, my girlfriend that throws them has claimed it for life so we will always have one to go thru!!

  4. She makes a ton of food, drinks like reindeer pee, & has games & prizes for the male & female best ugly sweater! If you follow me on Facebook ...

  5. Just fabulous ugly sweater party!! I loved watching these photos. We have recently attended Xmas themed birthday bash at some domestic garden Los Angeles venues and they also organized an ugly sweater ramp walk for kids. It turned out to be a blasting bash.
