This award brought to you by the murtleneck

A red plaid murtleneck (man turtleneck) with his grandpa's preachin' pants?


You had me at hello.



M to the Izz-A won the award for tackiest get-up at our Tacky Christmas sweater party over the weekend.  Truth be told, we threw it together at the last minute.  About 30 minutes before we had to leave, he ran down to Paw's (actually he rode a bike I think, but that's neither here nor there) to borrow some pants, socks, and a tie.  I had already taken care of the sweater vest.  Yep, borrowed that thing from my grandma.  He smelled like her perfume all night long.  The turtleneck?  Compliments of Wal-mart (women's section, but shhhhhh...).

Those pants just beg to be worn that high and cinched with a belt.

Receiving his 'award'

 Everyone looked hilariously tacky and had stories of buying their outfit with the cashier commenting on how "pretty" it was.  I think one sweater was even referred to as...beautiful?




Jobeth and Clay



Halee and Michael


Wayne and Michelle - If you didn't wear your sweater you had to wear the antlers.


Bryan and Tara

Ken and Peg - two words: gold pleather



Trudy and Bo and one sweet red blazer


Brandon and Kasey


Kristin and Ben


And listen, I apologize in advance if you own any of the sweaters posted above.  They really are "pretty".


As a matter of fact, I've got to hurry and return the sweaters I borrowed from my sweet grandma so she can work them back into the rotation.

This is like a bad sitcom...I cannot stop laughing...but it is equally funny that you can see how some couples tried to be conservative in their crazy dress...NOT YOU TWO though!!!! Hilarious.
