#Friendsgiving and Thanksgiving

While at the bars one night (isn't that where the best decisions are made), Natasha and I thought it would be fun to have a Thanksgiving for friends (aka: Friendsgiving). So with a little planning and a Facebook invite sent, we had a good sized shindig at Casa de Brioni!
Since I have no culinary skills whatsoever, Natasha graciously offered to cook the turkey I had bought! ;) She did a superb job--brining it and everything!
Homemade pumpkin pies!

What a spread! Not bad for a group of 20-somethings...and a couple of 30-somethings ;)

We had over twenty people over at our lil' place so we had to spread out. Some of us were in the living room...

Grabbing a seat wherever!

And then another group of us were in the dining room. Times like this I wish we had an open concept home or more space!

In any case I love having my friends together!

Here I am!

Real Thanksgiving was good too! This year it was at my family's (Justin and I alternate Thanksgiving and Christmas between Maryland and Kentucky).

The family spread with a mix of both American and Filipino food!

So that's what I did back in November...many moons ago. What about you guys? Do you have a Friendsgivng? If not, do you do any other fun holiday celebration with friends such a cookie exchange or white elephant?
