Friendsgiving 2015

A lot has happened in the past two weeks. My roommate decided to accept a job in Colorado, and is moving out next week; one of my closest friends returned home from grad school (coincidentally, also in Colorado) for Thanksgiving; and craziest of all, I had two days off IN A ROW. So naturally, party planning ensued. I didn’t think we’d pull it off… 20 people in our little tiny house! But we came, we ate, we drank (a lot), and it was a wonderful night for a send-off and a welcome home.

beer

This beer is a big deal in Richmond. Hardywood is one of our biggest local breweries, and their Gingerbread Stout is the most delicious holiday treat you’ll ever have in your life.

Everybody brought a little something, and when all was said and done, it was a TON of food. It’s so fun to see what different people’s families go-to thanksgiving dishes are 🙂

I’d meant to take a picture of this pie before it was even cut, it was soooo beautiful. But obviously it had other plans for me. Pecan pie (or anything) is my absolute favorite thing, and this one came with cinnamon whipped cream. Oh. My. God. Amazing.

These folks are the warmest, funniest, craziest people I’ve ever met! I’m so lucky I get to call them my friends and am thankful for copious opportunities to drink alcohol and make fools of ourselves together.
