My First Friendsgiving

This past weekend Joanna and Jeff invited Josh and me to our first Friendsgiving! Being new to town, it means so much to have friends that include us in their holiday traditions. I’ve always wanted to go to a Friendsgiving, so I was really looking forward to this. It was a potluck so Josh and I brought squash casserole, creme brulee potatoes, and pumpkin chocolate chip mookies.

My pictures are random and sporadic throughout the night. I tried not to seem too weird to all the people I was meeting by taking a million pictures. ;p There were about 15-20 people and everyone was so nice.

Hannah and Jeff outdid themselves with all the amazing food. Of course I snapped pictures of the dessert first. ;p

I want to eat this all over again!

Hannah‘s fruit salad was incredible!

Ruby was all over the scene looking for any food droppings. She’s so cute.

My plate of deliciousness. I love how the plates are lined with silver. They’re the fancy version of ours from Crate and Barrel. I’m trying to talk Josh into ordering some of these to go with our plain white ones for when we want to dress up our table a little bit.

A picture of me and Hannah. This is the only picture I took  of guests the whole night! I wish I had gotten a picture of the lovely host and her adorable family, but the night flew by before I had a chance. It was so much fun! It’s also crazy to me that two of my closest friends here are fellow bloggers. If I never started this little space on the internet I would have never met them! For that I am really grateful!

Question of the Day: Have you been to a Friendsgiving?

    OMG that turkey looks BOMB! 😀 I love Friendsgiving… and just dinner with friends! My brother and his gf recently had me over for dinner and they invited their other friend and it was just so much fun cooking up delicious food and then laughing and stuff. It was a smaller gathering but that’s how I like it 😀

    My child has had some health issues recently, so we haven’t gone out with friends for quite some time. It’s really the essence of life, isn’t it? Sharing and being with friends, it’s so important to nurture the ones we love. Looks like your Friendsgiving was a huge success! So much fun!

    That spread looks great! Two of my closest college friends married guys who we were friends with in college — for about five years after graduation 20-30 of us living aroubd Boston would get together for a Friendsgiving. The girls would cook up the meal but the guys Hanes the turkeys – I still remember fondly the maple syrup basting they would use. Amazing. But the most memorable things: themany bottles of wine emptied at our Friendsgivings!
