How to have 5 house guest...and live to tell about it.

I have had house guests. Lots of them. Wanna know how to make your life easier next time this happens to you?
First and foremost, you need to be perfectly fine with your house looking like this:
Set up a cute box of disposable dishes and announce that you will be washing NOTHING for the next week.
Meal plan. Write it out so people are prepared, and then load the top of your fridge with carbs. They make people full quick.
Cut yourself some slack one night and order pizza!
And last but not least, have copious amounts of wine and chocolate. How can you go wrong with that?
And there you have it. You no longer have to be afraid of the in-laws.

  4. Great adivice! I especially love the basket with paper plates and plastic cups. I'm going to try that and the meal plan idea when my in-laws come back and I have lots of people here in December for Jackson's arrival. Glad to see you're still alive :)

  5. Love the basket of paper goodies. Also, I am in love that you have not one but TWO bags of peanut M&Ms.. which brings me to my next question... have you tried the fall strawberry peanut butter M&Ms.. they are heaven.

  12. Wait a minute! (insert panic voice here)
    Isn't a house supposed to look like that all the time?!?!?! (voice goes up another octave)
    Where in the world did I place my humongous bag of peanut m&ms?!?!?
    Oh, there it is...the dog ate them all.
    Just kidding.
    But really, aren't houses with kids supposed to look just like that?

  13. haha. great advice. good thing i don't really have to worry about it. a) my house is too small for more than 1 or 2 guests and b) the in laws live about 10 minutes away :)

  14. If only.... my inlaws are the coolest people i know.. yet when it comes to visiting us.. I'm always stressing way beyond needed.. maybe it's just me wanting to be perfect at everything.. *which we all know it's impossible* but I'm still trying for some odd reason:)Darn it!
    Oh and if you're in for more random, stop by today for RTT.
    Happy Tuesday!
