tacky is as tacky does

saturday night, our great friends tony and maloney hosted their annual christmas party. well, i got to thinking (scary, i know), i really wanted to host a "tacky christmas sweater" party at our house, but well, our weekends are pretty much slammed this month. so what better than to throw the idea across to our dear friends who had their party already planned and see if they would bite. hook, line, and sinker, they went for it! i mean, how can you not love a themed party? they are my absolute most favorite. kids aren't the only ones who enjoy playing "dress up" ya know! here are a couple of pics smothered in tackiness...do you know how much time and effort it takes in searching for the most perfect, tackiest sweater out there? it was hard work, but boy, was it fun! i found jay's at a thrift store. it consisted of a red turtleneck with glittery silver snowflakes and woman's sweater vest baring cute little snowmen. he topped it off with reindeer antlers, and never have i ever wanted to jump his bones in an outfit like that. HA! my sweater was black with the "12 days of christmas" motif on it. yes, that's right, all 12 days were displayed with 1-6 on the chest, 7-9 down the right arm, and 10-12 on the left arm. as soon as i saw it, i fell in love and knew it was the one i had been waiting for.so the party started at 5:00pm which meant everyone was beyond druzzunk by 9:00pm. there was even a tackiest xmas sweater competition where jaydoug was one of the finalist as well as tre (karla's hubby). but we all knew who was going to win it, and who deserved it...mrs. haswell. she went all out from head to toe, and looked like an elf getting ready to play a game of golf. fabulous. the prize consisted of a pair of long striped christmas socks and a pint of jager. her hubby tried to steal it from her, but we all agreed that he definitely did not need it. it was great!the party continued to stay strong with the girls doing shots of petrone while the guys passed around tugs of the jager. next thing we know, the guys are doing their old school pi kappa phi chant in the kitchen. as a former rush hostess, watching this always brings a smile to my face. i know, i know, i'm a dork, but i love it. then tony (who btw, is vince vaughn's twin) quickly grabs his kid's pedialyte and milk out of the fridge as he starts jumping around like it's the next thing that's going to be chugged. it was hysterical!!the night kept going and going...next thing we know, everyone has turned the den into the music hall of 1999. the lights were turned down low, and the best booty music mix ever was being played on the ipod. from songs like "soulja boy" to "dick in a box," everyone was belting it and dancing. this next pic is of tony and jay doing the superman while listening to "soulja boy." yes, we have it on video too.shenanigans, shenanigans...it was great! that party totally put the term "whiskey dick" to a whole nother level because nobody was functioning by the end of the night! =P here are just a few more pics from the night that looking at still make me laugh. i felt like i needed to go to church the next morning and pray off my sins. but instead, we overslept and vowed that we'd never do that again. sad thing is, next weekend we are headed to new orleans (kidless) for an open bar wedding, and my liver is still pissed off. oh well, what can you do?
