Lately everyone’s been talking about the sparkly, haute Christmas sweaters, dresses, and pants they’ve snagged….and I’m all about fashionista items, but today my post is about a different kind of haute Christmas sweater!
My two friends and I-Holly and Anne plan a monthly girls night and this month we decided to catch the new movie “Murder on the Orient Express”. I heard it was good and we made a date to go, but then we started talking about all the fun of Christmas and thought it would be hilarious to wear “Ugly Christmas Sweaters” to our girls night! I was super excited as the date got closer and last night was the big event! Big event makes it sound like the Oscars or Grammy’s or something right?? LOL
Holly found a darling gingerbread man sweater with big snow balls that her youngest daughter wanted to adopt (read-cut) the gingerbread man, right off the sweater! It’s true that big girls can have just as much fun as little girls!
Anne’s sweater is a litter of Santa kittens surrounded by lovely blinking lights! She was able to wear it as a dress due to size malfunctions ;)! Her daughter also wore it to school and loved it! Haute Christmas sweaters are a hit for all family members!
My sweater is one I’ve made for a work ugly Christmas sweater two years ago (with help from my daughter McKenna), featuring Spock in a blinking Christmas tree (Trek the Halls) along with Rudolph (no animals or gingerbread men were harmed in the making of these sweaters) pulling the Enterprise on the back (Boldly going where no reindeer has gone before)! (We turned the blinking off for the movie of course)! LOL
We had an awkward moment however (only one right??)…hovering in the lobby of the theater trying to find someone to take our picture; finally snagging a theatre attendant but he just walked back and snapped and then handed us the phone/camera wordlessly (first pic below, judge for yourself!)….without saying he was taking a pic! We just kind of laughed about that, uh what to do…wondering how we were gonna get another picture! But another theatre attendant saw us and offered to take more pictures! We are at the mercy of strangers here! (notice we are standing in front of a Jedi…”help me Obi Wan Kenobi, you’re my only hope”, if anyone can help us, it’s the Force)…It was too funny guys!
We finally got some pictures and headed in to watch a really good movie! If you haven’t seen it, go check it out…and just for fun, wear your Haute Christmas Sweaters! Happy Wednesday Everyone!
