2014 -- week 45 of #projectlife -- friendsgiving


FOMO: fear of missing out. I feel like this could be my life's motto. despite the fact that I do cool stuff all the time, I always feel like I'm missing out on something epic. there are too many amazing, fun opportunities, when I choose one there's always a kernel of doubt: maybe the grass is greener at the party I'm not attending, the event I'm skipping, the trip I'm not on. but this week (week 45) I know for sure I missed out. I missed delicious food, spirited conversation, and awesome people; I missed friendsgiving. this is not to say that the dinner I attended instead was lacking any of these things, it had them by the bucketful, it's just that I'd never been to a friendsgiving before and I was bummed. 

I love the idea of friendsgiving. it's a thanksgiving themed dinner party. what's not to love? turkey, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, pumpkin pie with all of my besties. yes please. in fact, I love dinner parties in general. themed or not, pot luck or hosted,they're always fabulous. they're an excuse to hang out with loved ones, be a fatty, and eat cake and/or pie (or both), four of my favorite things. 

and with that I've come up with my first new year's resolution of 2015: have/attend more dinner parties.
