Well for once this holiday was something kinda special. It was more than just some food, lots of dishes to wash, and falling asleep in front of a TV... It included some great company and I had a blast. My friends Billy and Glen opened up their home to several friends as well as my date. (Yes, Zack is dating a boy.) They made their version of a good ol' fashioned "Southern Thanksgiving" complete with the best fried Okra you'll ever taste and so many things to choose from, there was a remark about next time maybe bigger plates. That is a scary proposition if i've ever heard one...

The table was covered in beautiful settings, the perfect amount of space and chairs, fun and gross stories that at any other thanksgiving would not be fodder for dinner table conversation, and our two amazing hosts to top it all off. We started early, the boy and I arrived at noon and I think he got a taste of what its like at an event well as the report with my fun friends. We had cocktails in hand and were off to chat and relax within minutes of walking in the door. Hilarity and shenanigans ensued as more and more people arrived. All in all there were about 12 of us, and the party was in full swing. The Bird was delicious, the Ham was awesome, and the 4 different desserts were so good you just had to try to make room for them. The day turned to night, more drinks, lots of laughs, a few broken glasses, a lampshade gone home to Jesus later, and it was time to go home.

I continued to have an amazing weekend... not gonna jinx anything with much more detail. Its really the first time I can say all this about a Thanksgiving in ages. Thanksgiving has always been a little bit of a throwaway for me in the past as i'm not geographically close to many family members. This thanksgiving just kinda rocked. Not much more to say than that.
