Be Our Guest...

I love having people over. I get excited when I can use my serving dishes, make fun appetizers and have a house abuzz with people. I have fun hosting and thinking through what people will want and what they might need while they are at our house. This is especially true when we have people stay the night. We have really only had a few overnight guests, but It's fun to put the guest bedroom to use every once in a while.

Last night was just such an occasion. One of Dave's best buds, Aaron (who is single and ready to mingle, ladies!) is in town for business and we offered for him to stay with us instead of a lonely old hotel room. We're always happy to have Dupree around! (*side story: Dave lived with Aaron for 2 years while we were dating and I would always make dinner and invite Dave over. I would tell him to just bring Aaron too because there was always more than enough. We would go to the movies and invite Aaron. The 3 of us hung out quite a bit so the whole You, Me and Dupree thing became our joke....so, he gave us a blowup air mattress for our wedding present to have when he came to visit! Love it.)

I digress....So in being the hostess with the mostess I always try to roll out the red carpet for my guests. I channel my inner Martha Stewart and I put a couple bottles of water in the guest bedroom, put out current magazines near their nightstand, fresh towels in the bathroom, a new toothbrush and toothpaste on the counter just in case they forgot, etc. So this brings me to last night....

I went upstairs to blow out the candles and turn on some of the lights for when Aaron decided to go to bed. I decided to go ahead and pull down the bed because I have a few (read: a lot!) of pillows on the guest bed. I'm pretty sure boys don't like to deal with things like "throw pillows" so I decided to deal with them myself. Boy was I glad! I pulled off the final layer of pillows and right there laying on the turned down portion of the comforter was a dog biscuit. My precious little devil dog had chosen our guest bed as the "hiding spot".

The finer hotels put a mint on your pillow...we prefer a MilkBone.
