Friendsgiving


The holidays in general are so crazy with everybody traveling near and far to visit family they want to see, and family they are obligated to see, so why not slow down a bit and give thanks for the amazing friends in your life.  For the second year, my fabulous Pink Ladies Book Club will be celebrating our friendship and giving thanks for each other with our own Friendsgiving Extravaganza.

No need to exchange pleasantries with crazy Aunt Gertrude and creepy Uncle Charlie over green bean casserole. We will do that next week on the actual holiday. But in advance of Thanksgiving, all of us will gather around the dinnah table to break bread with each other. The host makes the turkey and each member of our book club brings a bottle of wine and a favorite family Thanksgiving side dish to share. Everybody signs up in advance so we don't have 10 bowls of mashed taters. The selection of vittles last year was absolutely incredible and I'm so looking forward to Friendsgiving this week.

So folks, if you need to break away from the madness, why not organize a Friendsgiving of your own? It's cheap, easy, and best of all, your stomach won't just hurt from eating all of that delicious food, it will hurt from rip' roarin' belly laughs. Now that is somethin' to be thankful for!

  1. A bottle of wine each? Now that must be a fun gathering!
    We've had Thanksgiving with friends rather than family many times. It does make the occasion a whole lot more fun.

  4. I love a good Friendsgiving. Ours usually involves beer instead of wine, but it still leads to the same end result. An end result that is still more pleasant than listening to my racist uncle's thoughts on Obama while eating some of that awful green bean casserole (Why do people make that? It's just NEVER good).

    1. Hahaha yea we try not to talk about the heavy stuff. Usually we end up discussing sex and we always come away learning something interesting about sex. Maybe we should rename it to Sexgiving?

  7. My sister-in-law invited us all over to her thanksgiving but we have to bring a dish. I really want to set up a prank where everybody brings the same item.

  8. Well, none of my friends actually live where I live. That makes it a little difficult.

  11. Wish I could join yours. It seems my local friends have families to visit with. What's wrong with them?! Friends are better.
