This epic Friendsgiving guide includes everything you need to throw a memorable occasion-- minus the tension and stress. In Friendsgiving, you'll find: Handy timelines, shopping tips, and advice for planning ahead Leftovers strategies, wine pairings, and music suggestions Twenty-five easy, delicious recipes, such as Stuffing with Italian Sausage and Caramelized Fennel, Southern Tomato Pudding, and Roasted Cauliflower Steaks with Arugula-Walnut Pesto Convenient options for variations, as well as suggestions for what to make and what to ask guests to bring-- because good friends want to pitch in too!

#Midwintersolace

I'll be checking in on all posts today, catching up with you all. I thought it would be nice if we all did the same. However, please don't feel obliged. I don't want to overwhelm you. Just thought it would be fun to have a #SocialSaturday round and spread a little #Litsylove.
The taglist of those participating can be found on yesterday's post - https://litsy.com/p/NGFSY1lTTXlX

Watching some Friends Thanksgiving episodes while updating my bujo. Yes, I still have all ten seasons on DVD. No, I streamed them tonight because I was lazy and didn't feel like switching discs after every episode 😅
#Friendsgiving @Catsandbooks

Catsandbooks I do the same thing 😂I have the box set but still stream cause sometimes getting up to change the disc is just too much! 5mo
julesG @Catsandbooks Same here. We have the boxed set, but can't be bothered to walk three steps to change the discs. 😂😂😂 5mo
peanutnine @Catsandbooks @julesG I'm glad it's not just me 😂 5mo
dabbe #ditto for me, too! 🤩🤩🤩 5mo
RedxoHearts This made me laugh because I'm the same way with my boxed sets of Gilmore Girls, Charmed and Supernatural. Of course I thought about getting rid of them then but nope haven't done that either. 5mo

I think yes! My poor baby E has Covid so we are all huddling inside. What better way to spend my time then a couple of readathons. Thank you @Catsandbooks and @Andrew65 for your readathon too! Already finished the first book. I‘d like to try to finish 2 more audiobooks and if I can two physical reads. #Friendsgiving

Catsandbooks Oh no! Hope E feels better soon! Enjoy the reading though! 🧡 5mo

I forgot to post that I'll be taking part in the #Friendsgiving readathon hosted by @Catsandbooks
My reading has been laid-back this month so I'm just looking forward to finishing a few graphic novels I have from the library and listening to some audiobooks while prepping my reading journal for #WinterGames
This is inspiring me to rewatch some of my favorite Friends episodes so I might do that as well this long weekend ☺️

Catsandbooks Sounds perfect! Enjoy! 🧡🦃❤️ 5mo

Repost for @Catsandbooks

During the week of Thanksgiving (U.S.) I'm hosting a #Friendsgiving Readathon 🦃 Set your own goals.

I will be around all that week if anyone wants to chat, share shows or books you're enjoying, or anything else. During that time just use and search for the tag #Friendsgiving to see what others are up to 🧡

A postal strikes and a cyber attack on international postal services in the U.K. have really put a dampener on my letter writing and #litsylove activity. It was so lovely this week to receive this electronic message ♥️ Thank you so much for reaching out @dabbe

A BIG surprise today and equally BIG thank you to @squirrelbrain for a (early birthday?) delivery today. I‘m going to hang on to it until my big day on the 22nd (if the suspense doesn‘t kill me first). 🤣
I think it‘s rather amusing that it actually arrived on YOUR birthday, my friend. 😆
Hope you‘re having a lovely day, Helen, and thanks again for your thoughtfulness. 😘😘

squirrelbrain I sent it *really* early as there are postal strikes here in the UK, but actually it only took a week to get there. 🤷‍♀️ See if you can hold on to your excitement for a few more weeks! 🤣 2y

A friend messaged me that she had left this outside (and she had sprayed it with Lysol)- a beautiful wreath she made for me and a touching canvas she gave my daughter. My daughter free painted her jeans with over 50 images. My go to music is sometimes Billy Joel and sometimes an 80‘s playlist. The last food I indulged in was vegan cherry garcia ice cream. #thoughtfulthursday

Helen, thank you so much for the stickers! The new ones are really cute! I can‘t wait to use some.

I hope you‘ve been having a wonderful holiday season ❤️

squirrelbrain Sorry Soubhi - only just seen this - holiday madness and then going away camping for a few days...! Glad you like the stickers - enjoy using them! 😘 4y

Thank you for the card Lynn!!! BFC was a great idea and has given me a lot.

Thank you Rachel! What a wonderful surprise! It's 94 days until the next #readingretreat 😁 I'm looking forward to it too.
Can I open the present today or should I wait for Christmas Day?
