Thankful for Friends, Wine & TV! Heather Hopson November 29, 2014 Mom, Relationships Disclosure: I am a member of Netflix #StreamTeam and receive promotional products to complete monthly posts. Dear Diary, This weekend, Caitlynn went to visit her father, and left me with an empty nest. In the beginning, I would mope around and miss her. Now, I’m adjusting to our co-parenting schedule and trying to make the most out of our time apart. Last night, some of my best friends from middle school came to visit and kept me company. We drank wine–and then coffee because we are no longer energetic teenie boopers–and celebrated Friendsgiving, a popular take on Thanksgiving when friends come together to celebrate good food and great company. We’re thankful for friends, wine and TV! Although we don’t talk daily like we did when we were kids, we are thankful that are relationships lasted over the years. As a matter of fact, our bonds grew stronger. We’ve cheered each other on at college graduation ceremonies, walked down the aisle in bridesmaid dresses that weren’t always flattering, hosted baby showers when we expanded our families and made time to talk no matter how hectic our evenings. This night, our conversations centered around overcoming the fear of putting a child on the bus. Two of my friends conquered sending kids to kindergarten this year. We also laughed about no longer being able to stay up past midnight. And we embraced our newfound entertainment–the television. Watching shows On Demand and on Netflix was just as exciting as going to a nightclub, which we voted to skip! Here’s a list of grown up shows featuring friends. 1. Rory and Lorelai: Gilmore Girls 2. Schmidt and Nick: New Girl 3. Ted and Barney: How I Met Your Mother 4. Liz and Jack: 30 Rock 5. Walter and Jesse: Breaking Bad 6. Mulder and Scully: The X-Files 7. Wayne and Garth: Wayne’s World Hey DFTM Fam–What shows are you streaming with friends and family?
