Saturday Night: Friendsgiving and a Housewarming

 Steak and I had a wonderful Saturday night this past weekend. Steak had been working all day for a fast approaching deadline. I stayed home and jogged to Giant, cleaned the house and made two deep-dish pumpkin pies. At 6 Steak and I headed to Mt. Vernon Square, pies, wine, and flowers in hand to attend our first ever Friendsgiving. 

Two of my college friends (who I actually lived next door to freshman year) invited us to meet all of their friends and enjoy a delicious feast of turkey, mashed potatoes, green beans, sweet potatoes, mac & cheese, salad, rolls, cranberries, stuffing, wine and, of course, my delicious pumpkin pies. Everyone brought something different and we feasted and cheers to new friends. It was a wonderful celebration.

After our Friendsgiving, despite being ridiculously stuffed, we ventured back to Arlington to congratulate my friend, K, on the purchase of her new condo. It was wonderful to see her new place, chat with some of our skeeball teammates and catch-up with my sorority sisters.

The new home owner and our fabulous hosttess is the blonde to the right of me. 

By the way, on the way to K's condo, we ran into this...

Hope everyone has a magical weekend!
