'tis the season for giving thanks, so what better way to show appreciation than hosting a friendsgiving? And it’s another excuse to consume seriously huge amounts of turkey and trimmings… so really, it’s a win, win. in the United States, thanksgiving falls on Thursday, November 28, and that means that we here will be celebrating with my parents for the first time ever since living in Germany. However, we had the honor of celebrating Canadian thanksgiving with all (and I mean all - it was amazing) our friends from the team and it was SUCH a wonderful experience, one full of love and TONS of food. If it’s possible, we’d love to keep the tradition alive and celebrate twice, once with family and once with friends. Its such a nice way to come together. Find inspiration for your own friendsgiving with these photos from the pretty blog.
Right now i’m on a serious pumpkin high & i don’t think my obsession is going to go away anytime soon > > > if you’ve missed a few of my previous posts about recipes with pumpkin, click on over to here, here, and here. With that being said, i’m a little on the fence about this latest idea from anthro blog… Pumpkin Beer Floats. although it’s a grown up version of the pumpkin obsession, i just can’t fathom how this tastes. Each and every year I miss out on delicious pumpkin goodies (especially goodies like pumpkin ale) because of living in a foreign country during the fall - major bummer, i know. family, when you make your way over to Germany next week, please consider packing in some pumpkin beer so i can try out this reported delicious recipe!!
So you tell me, have you ever tried pumpkin ale?
Would you dare to indulge in some Pumpkin Beer Floats ?

i’m a little late with things today » we’ve been in relax mode due to a break in the DEL schedule. while a few of our friends traveled to spain, dublin, and budapest, we opted for a staycation. over the last 5 days, we did to dos, got things organized for an upcoming event, tended to a ball-less dog [buck no longer has his manhood], and ate some seriously delicious mexican food with friends. although we didn’t go anywhere, our time was still very enjoyable. here’s a few snaps from the week:
i’m currently loving this #foodforthought found in my latest read > > > > what would it feel like if we just accept things as they are instead of judging them?
