we did it, we hosted a thanksgiving dinner with our friends and all we could say was WOW, we're really adults!
one of my good friends Andrea (who lives in Utah) and i planned a little friends night, the saturday after thanksgiving. We wanted to get everyone together and have a thanksgiving dinner party after the real day. she and i emailed and shared ideas about a month prior and were so excited! since i was traveling, i was in charge of the decor and favors which i was easily able to travel with. the rest of our friends each brought a dish, and it was just fantastic. i think we all were so pleasantly surprised with how wonderful everything came out. everyone took the time to make something delicious, the food was amazing. it was so nice to have everyone come together and plan a nice dinner party. an adult party that is. good friends, good conversation and good food.
(i apologize now for the lack of people photos, i at least have a few of the two hostesses and a couple little ones.)
