Have you ever held a Friendsgiving? Friendsgiving pretty much is what got this blog started in the first place. My sister-in-law and I used to plan a Friendsgiving for all of our friends. We got crazy. We decorated, we cooked, we had a blast. And we knew that we could come up with really great entertaining ideas for other people. So months and months and many more parties later, this blog got started. While she couldn’t continue with it, I will always cherish those Friendsgiving memories. There has been talk of starting it up again but now with kids in the picture, and busier schedules, finding a day we can all agree on is next to impossible. I propose a mid summer Friendsgiving next year. Who’s with me?
In case you are having a Friendsgiving (or even just for Thanksgiving) I’ve made you a playlist. It’s about 2 hours long so you may need to supplement with other music but this is a great playlist for playing in the background. It’s got a little bit of everything, some soulful stuff, some up tempo, some new, some old. I plan on playing this when I’m prepping my Thanksgiving dishes in the kitchen. Nothing like a little good music (and a little wine) to make kitchen duty more fun.
I miss doing this blog and planning parties with my sister-in-law and friend, Alyson. Luckily I get to see her at Thanksgiving. It’s always so good to catch up with her at family holiday events. She’s been a great friend to me over the years and I’m glad that our kids are friends as well. You can be family, but that doesn’t mean you end up as friends. This is the perfect time of year to really look at friendship and what it means to be a good friend. Netflix has some great options for friend-focused shows. BTW, Friends hits Netflix (currently only available on the DVD service) January 1!!! That Friendsgiving/Thanksgiving episode is the best ever.
For the kids:
Phineas and Ferb (Brothers and Friends. Warms a mother’s heart. And this show makes my husband and I laugh.)
Thank you for supporting the companies that allow me to keep doing what I love. Like watching TV and hanging out with my family. And writing this blog. I’m a proud member of the Netflix #StreamTeam! As always, though, all opinions are my own.
