The idea began when we found out that Ms. Duler
had yet to experience the tradition of
Crazy right?.. and kind of sad
This needed to be fixed. 
So Der mentioned doing a FRIENDSGIVING
the day before Thanksgving Day.

Although we were only like 2 days away
we thought that this sounded like so much fun!
Especially since so many of our friends
including myself
do not have family near by. 

It was decided!
So Der sent out this clever little message
and we began planning. 

Luckily, we have really GREAT friends
and we had an amazing turn out!

As usual... Tundra was the first to show up....

Where there's food... there's a Tundra!

First time wearing my Anthropologie apron



Thanks to Ry and his amazing cooking skills

I feel it is only necessary..... 

You're welcome

The chef carving away

This was my doing.... 
and yes, there were flames
and minor panic

 and on my FAVORITE Thanksgiving item! Candied Yams!
I must be telling such a great story.... But Tundra never took his eye off the prize
There's my adorable hub stuffin' his face... 

And the battle begins.... 

Between the Newbie and the Bird Chef himself

And we have your WINNER!

Rightfully so...

For dessert... mini pecan pies... compliments of Kris!

After the feast...
we went around the room and said what we were thankful for
It's much more fun when you feel like it's your idea... 
and not some painful thing your mother came up with :) 
Although.. I am pretty sure I panicked under the pressure 
and said something really dumb

After the Friendsgiving festivities
we walked over to Dick N' Dixies
for a little bit.
Where we decided it would be a great night for a photo booth sesh.
Yes, all 4 of us crammed in there! 

Made for a good ending to a great night.

Besides the Candied Yam Marshmallow Fire incident... 
the mishap below, was really the only other fail of Friendsgiving

Kris has STILL never had Sparkling Cider.
I tried to remedy this fact
but ended up forgetting about them in the freezer. 
This is what happens to sparkling cider in the freezer. 

Maybe next year we will just put ice in the cups... duh

We will learn from our mistakes. 
No fires or broken bottles next year.
Although... I am excited to see what hilarious "mishaps" we will endure next Friendsgiving.
