We have officially entered into Holiday party season and with that comes the infamous ugly sweater parties. You know you have been to one!!! In fact I got engaged at one! That’s right. My husband proposed at an ugly sweater party. We had a large house in Northern California at the time and decided to throw a party which was not my idea, nor was I thrilled about. I didn’t want tons of people roaming through my house making a mess but we definitely had the space for it so we decided to go ahead. I was running super late that day and barely had time to do my hair before the door bell rang. I can assure you I wasn’t in the best of moods but I wanted to make the best out of spending time with friends and family. My now husband was in charge of preparing the kitchen and back yard and I was doing everything else. My sweater was last minute from Forever21 and dawned the words ” Ho Ho Ho” with a jingly bell. It was the best I could do. My husbands was in a red and green sweater with AR15’s all over it. (He’s a firearms enthusiast) The party was well under way and I was extremely overwhelmed with the 50+ people inside my home. And to be perfectly honest I was a little annoyed with my husband because every time I turned around he was missing. I felt I was entertaining all by myself!!!! Little did I know he was planning his surprise. Fast forward a couple of hours and more than a couple jello shot’s later, I was standing in a group of my college besties when all of a sudden one of them shoved me away from the group. I was extremely confused and startled by this action. Unsure of what to do I looked at her as if to say WTF, and she pointed behind me and said “turn around!” To my shock behind me on one knee was my now husband in a home-made ugly sweater that read “Marry Me”. All I could manage to utter was, “are you serious?” With tears in his eyes he told me I was the one he wanted to spend the rest of his life with, and with that I said yes. He changed into an ugly sweater that changed our lives and the rest is history. I thought this would be a fun story for you to read while you browse the selection of ugly sweaters under $40 that I selected for you. I hope your sweater parties will be just as magical as mine was. And if you have a fun sweater party story, I’d love to read it in the comments below! Happy Holiday’s!
