Thanksgiving Planning

This is our second year having a friend Thanksgiving, but our very first as hosts. (Not that family aren't friends, but you know.) At first I was nervous about hosting. I mean, doesn't the host provide the turkey? I've never done that before (you know, like I've never mowed a lawn). But then I invoked the power of the "People dumber than I have done this," and all was well. That's when the fun began: all that planning! Who was coming, what would we cook, where would everyone sit, where would the food go, what crafts MUST be many lists and diagrams and I LOVE IT ALL. It's the most excited about Thanksgiving I've been in a long time.

P.S. I haven't seen the usual glut of Thanksgiving posts on Facebook this year. Here's one for you: I am extremely thankful to not live in Buffalo right now. I can't get over those pictures of all that snow.


  1. love it! i'm sure you're super great at planning it all.

    indeed, there is such a thing as too much snow!

  2. Well we are super excited as well! I love having "Friendsgiving." I always know what to expect from Thanksgiving with family but it's always so fun to see what new traditions and foods friends bring to the table. I'm sure the turkey will be awesome and I can't wait to see what crafts you have done!

    I tell myself that "people dumber than I have done this" ALL THE TIME. Currently applies to: leaving the house with three kids. potty training. making caramelized onions.
