Thankful For Friends

Some fellow moms and I got together for a Thanksgiving dinner without the kids. We enjoyed eating, games and lots of gabbing. Everyone had to bring something they were thankful for under five dollars for a gift exchange. I must say...there wasn't a single unwanted gift in the house. We also played the "thankful game". I highly suggest this game for other Thanksgiving dinners. When each person arrived they wrote down something they were thankful for other than the usual (family, friends etc...) and why they were thankful for it. Then, we guessed who was thankful for what. I wish so badly I would have held onto the papers for blog purposes. I will share a few from memory.

"I am thankful for my Venus razor. Without it I would be one super hairy monster."

"I am thankful for my purell key chain...without it I would be washing my hands in public restrooms constantly."

"I am thankful for spanx...without them my belly would hang to the floor."


Here is everyone with their new loot from the gift exchange


Someone managed to swipe a root beer from a gift before it left the gift giver's house. We're not naming any names but we have a pretty good idea who it might have been.


I'm so sad Shawna's pretty face isn't in this picture...

It was a perfect evening. I had so much fun in such a short time! I was worried I would feel like I was leaving before I had my fill, but it was perfect. Thanks so much again. I loved the thankful game as well. So much fun.

Thanks for the dinner and FUN! I was so worried that everyone was going to guess my thankful "secret"! But I am glad I was able to share it with everyone in a surprising manner!
