Fun With Friends

New Christmas Tradition – Friend Party

You know that group of friends that you’ve had forever: the ones you can go months–even years– without seeing, and still have lots to talk about? That group that you know you’ll be friends with forever, even when life throws you curve balls and takes you separate ways?

Well, my friend group like that is always saying that we should get together more often (and not just at each other’s weddings)–we’re always talking about meeting up and grabbing lunch, or having a little party to check out each other’s new digs. Up til this year, that was mostly just a lot of talk and not a lot of action.

Life has a funny way of getting in the way of our good intentions.

But despite life’s funny ways, this year we actually decided to do something about it.

Mara and hubby Jae were nice enough to open their new home to the craziness that would be a friend reunion.

All us girls brought different breakfast items to share, including the makings for a full crepe bar and lots of sausage and bacon for us meat lovers.

Everyone (hubbies included) brought white elephant gifts to trade.

I don’t think white elephant gift exchanges ever get old–I mean, check out Sam (above) decked out in all his “bling.”

Priceless, really.

I’m so thankful to have grown up with these good people for most of my life.

I’m also thankful that they’re better at planning things than I am.

Already looking forward to next year, guys!
