Stirrup pants are the new thing (+ giveaway winner)

I've taken a mini break from all things internet- gave up facebook for a week and actually blogging as well. From time to time I may have commented on a blog, but as far as writing my own posts- needed a breather on that as well--- I'll save the explanation for another day.

In the meantime....

After quite a few votes for my Ugly Sweater Selection giveaway, the hands down winner was option #1....

and here I am sporting this horrendous look at work today

 I'm wearing a light up "I love Christmas" strand of lights- battery pack fits nicely in my underwear. Yes those are stirrup pants.... probably the best part of my outfit. 

Love how bright Chris is

Waiting around for Santa 

 in the 'sleigh' 
Santa and his elf arrive!

I've been a very good girl this year!!

My tackiness paid off, I was one of the winners for the ugly Christmas sweater outfit--- unfortunately no plane tickets  :sigh: 

But both Chris and I got 6 Suite Level Passes (private booth with complimentary beer & food) for tomorrow's Nashville Predators Hockey game!

Now its time to pay it forward....

I had a lot of entries for the Amazon gift card giveaway- but alas there can only be one winner. I guess it paid off for her to send in a photo of herself with a tacky sweater for extra entries .....

Congratulations goes to Vanessa @ Gourmet Runner!

Email me @ my gmail address from earlier and let me know if you want the actual card sent to you, or the code so you can start shopping immediately :)

For all those who entered, never fear, I will be hosting another giveaway in the next week before the holiday season is over!!! 

Stay tuned... 


  1. This post is just all kinds of awesome!!

    I was just talking about my tacky sweater with a co-worker a few minutes ago. I need to coordinate with my mom and figure out when we're going to wear them this year.

    The sad thing is we got horrendous sweaters as a joke, then the ladies at work think they are cute. CUTE?? No way!! They are soooo gross! Love 'em!
