Okay bloggies it’s been wayyy too long since I’ve posted and updated you all on our crazy and amazing whirlwind of a blogger GTG thanksgiving weekend. I have never in my life experienced anything quite like it. Not even when I was a student!
In order to try to recap ya’ll the best I can, I am going to cut up some of the events into smaller posts because the marathon posts are killin me! lol
So I left ya’ll hangin’ with the recap of Wednesday’s Lobster boil and Thursday’s Keith’s Brewery Tour & down town good times. Friday was our big group thanksgiving!
Most of the group spent the day preparing dinner at my house (while I was at work) and they skipped off to Peggy’s Cove where they all had a great time and took some magnificent pictures of our province’s picturesque coastline. (I may just have to photoshop myself in them!).
I walked in the door when I got home from work to the glorious aroma of what ended up being the absolutely BEST thanksgiving dinner I had EVER tasted! The lobster from the day before was the best I ever tasted too!
Every family has something that is their “must have” signature side and what do you get when you combine them all together????
What have I got here?
- Free range organic turkey
- Lynn’s sausage stuffing
- Lesley’s potato stuffing
- Cat & Jen’s roasted garlic mashed potatoes
- Lynn’s sweet potato casserole
- Jaime’s maple-dijon brussels sprouts
- Somebody’s turnip/carrot mash
- Cat’s? amazing gravy?
- Jen’s homemade cranberry sauce from fresh a local farmer’s market
- Amy’s twice baked sweet potatoes
If you can picture 18 people in one place trying to find a place to sit and dive in, here’s a few shots:
Tasha and Tim had to share a chair!
Then there were some drinki-poos, some guitar hero and some serious celebrating because it was then officially the long weekend for me and my bloggie BFFs and the Hubby-bloggers were AT MY HOUSE! Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!
I got a few up close and personal shots of my ladies:
Whoops and down she goes! Les I hate to break it to ya but I don’t think you’re going to make the Bloggie Olympic Trampoline Team! 😛
Seriously you guys, it was quite possibly the FUNNEST night I have EVER had!
So that about does it for Friday night! I’ll spare you the really bad pics that incriminate us all in the healthy living blogosphere! 😉
