I spent the day entertaining my niece while my sister did all those cleaning tasks that are harder to do with a toddler underfoot. I had stopped by Value Village during our Christmas shopping to (unsuccessfully) check for clothing for the (successful) interview. What I did pick up was a super cheap patterned cardi, and this chunkier knit, as my sister termed it: "cute ugly sweater".
I'll admit, I had goaded her for a couple days about my "deer sweater" that I was going to wear that I found at a thrift store that was too awesome to give up. I shouldn't have been surprised she expected to see something red and green, and qualified to win an ugly sweater contest. However, she cooed when she saw what it actually looked like, so I'll take it as a win.
And yes, it was taken at the end of the day. Chasing a one year old is hard work!
