It’s Here–Ugly Sweater Season

It’s hard to believe the time has arrived – sweater season. Fall is my favorite season of all. I love the smell of the wood burning stove as I walk through the neighborhood, the smell of pumpkin and other fall scented candles burning in my house,  I love the fall foliage – some of the colors on the trees are just amazing, they just seem to create a rainbow of their own.  I think Fall just creates beauty at least for a short period of time.

I was at Petco last week getting more dog food and as I turned the corner – bang! there she was – some older lady sporting her ugly Halloween sweater. Really lady? It was only the middle of September. Was she trying to be the first one from her Ugly Sweater Club like she’s gonna win a prize or something? When you see something nice on someone you always want to pay them a compliment but when you see ugly you just think to yourself – dang that is some ugly shit.  You can’t help but stare because you can’t believe that someone is actually wearing something like that. Just like when we were at the zoo last weekend and the llamas were having sex. You know its just wrong to stare but you just can’t help yourself.

Do any of you have any of these ugly sweaters stored in a draw just waiting for that right time to wear them?  Have any of you attended an Ugly Sweater Party?  Do share. I would love to hear some stories. 



  1. Ah..the joys of the holiday season must include Ugly Sweaters!

  2. Hahahah I haven't laughed so hard. I both love and hate ugly sweaters. I loath them because...well they are just ugly but I love them because they do make the holidays fun as far as being able to laugh at silly people wearing them. 

  3. Hey Felicia,

    No Kidding! I used to think I was so cool and looked awesome in my sweaters. Those were the days - LOL!

  4. I really, really want to go to an ugly sweater party!  Too bad I live in South Florida and we really don't get sweater weather down here.  For the most part we are spared from ugly sweaters in general.  Maybe I should host a party and see what my friends can come up with...I'll have to bring the idea up to my husband tonight!  :)

  5. HaHa - let me know if he's up for it - that would be too funny. You'll have to send pics! The floridians can wear sweater vests!
