First Friendsgiving 2018

You ever watch any of the Friends Thanksgiving episodes and wonder why these people never celebrated with their families? For the longest time, I was like, “Where the heck are their parents?”

Well, it’s been about 23 years since Friends debuted and who would have thought Friendsgiving would be a thing now?

Also, why did it take our little rag tag group of peeps so long to decide to do our own Friendsgiving? We are so behind with the times.

Better late than never, I suppose.

This weekend, we decided to all get together and celebrate the best way we know how. With lots of food, music, laughs, discussion and most of all alcohol friends.

Also, yeah, we did have wine and a little bit of the Grey Goose. Just a bit… I swear! 😉

We decided to make it a potluck and the official rules, were that everything had to be homemade, but I did cheat and buy a cake for dessert. I’m not much of a baker.

We had all the traditional foods, like turkey, cornbread, sweet potatoes, stuffing, green beans and even a Hummingbird Cake, which I have never had and it was absolutely delicious!

Since there was no big game to watch in the TV, we decided to spend the day just talking and telling funny stories. Yes, we even discussed politics, but kept it civil. We are classy like that.

Of course, the day could not go undocumented, so a lot of pictures were taken. Check out our first ever Friendsgiving below and let me know if you have had your own. What do you guys do and is there anything special we should do next year?

The Girls! Michelle (maker of the delicious Hummingbird Cake), Yudy (Hostess with the Mostest), Me (brought the store bought cake), Janet (came late and didn’t eat anything!)
