Happy Monday, friends! I hope you all had a great weekend! I realize that my last post said that I would be a better blogger and then I did not blog once all of last week, but I promise I had a fairly good reason this time. I actually managed to injure my neck in the middle of the night (that’s a whole other story in and of itself) on Sunday (a week ago) and have only just recently started to regain mobility in my neck. Every day last week, I came home from work and plopped right down on the couch with a heating pad, pain meds and a muscle relaxer, so I was not able to do a whole lot else. But I’m happy to say that I am back and almost as good as new!

This weekend consisted mostly of relaxing on the couch or taking naps, but I did leave the house at one point on Saturday to celebrate Friendsgiving with some of my…well…friends. It was so much fun! I always say that Friendsgiving food is always better than actual Thanksgiving food. Friendsgiving is potluck stlye, so everyone brings their A-game for the one, maybe two dishes they prepare, so it’s always stellar. Whereas for real Thanksgiving, I find that it’s usually only one person doing the majority of the cooking, so in my opinion the quality is just not quite the same.

And let me tell you, everything at Friendsgiving was delicious! I filled my plate so much that there were multiple layers of food and eating was like finding buried treasure. “Oh, I totally forgot I had green bean casserole under my roll!” Thankfully, I was able to exercise some level of self-restraint and ended up not cleaning my plate entirely. Well, it was actually probably less self-restraint and more, “I’m too full to eat anything else.”

The above picture is the beautiful sign that my friend Lauren drew free-handed for the event, which totally explains why she kicked our butts in Christmas cookie decorating last year.  I have some seriously talented friends.

Anyway, I hope your weekend was filled with fun, friends, laughter and food, and I hope you have a great day! Thanks for stopping by!
