A Friendsgiving Weekend


A Friendsgiving was had here over the weekend.



 The past few weeks we have been feverishly preparing to host our 20 guests in our 1200 square foot condo. A trick indeed to be able to seat those many people and not be too claustrophobic.



We went potluck style. Each person brought their own dish and we contributed our home, a turkey, gravy and apps. The dinner was so delicious. Each person's dish was well received. My picky eater self didn't try everything (I have trust issues with stuffing) but I have it on good authority from my husband that everything was delicious.






It was great to be able to have everyone together and continue our tradition this year. We also told people we would be making a trip to a local food bank to put together a Christmas dinner basket and they were more than welcome to bring a contribution.



Our friends did not disappoint. It felt great when people brought in bags to share with our donation knowing that we were about to have one of the first of our holiday celebrations.

Sunday we recovered. After a full Friday, Saturday day prep, I just wanted to veg out on the couch. And that's what I did. We had leftovers for dinner and I ate chips for a snack. Then, I tuned in for the AMAs. Decent show.


Here's to my last week in retail and a week of many thanks!

  4. I can't even remember how it started, but we love having it every year. Especially when sometimes friends are far away it's nice to get everyone together in one place.

  6. I was actually shocked that we had a 100% RSVP return haha It can be hard to get everyone together during this time because things come up all the time, we were lucky! I'm sure you had an amazing time in the city, we love our city nights.
