A Wifey’s Guide to Entertaining the In-Laws

So for those of us who are quite aware that our in-laws are going to scrutinize our every move, and in our own homes, no less; or, for those of us who would like to avoid the messy business of the possibilities of in-laws all-together : an in-law prophylactic, if you will; I present to you, the ultimate in sarcastic home finery and their slightly classier alternatives that still manage to say “Get the fuck out.”

 

When you’re:

 
1. Serving ice tea to your loving family –

 

tacky1$12.00

 

Because if you didn’t advertise it, how would they know?

 

Feeling a little more classy? Let them know that just seeing them makes you drink.. out of this lovely vintage inspired flask.

2. Entertaining in the sitting room –

 

tacky41295$12.95, Tip: make sure you put out reading material that expresses your genuine hopes of spending time with them.

 

Make sure there is relatable material for the moments you’re in the kitchen sneaking a xanax.

3. Giving a tour of your perfectly appointed home –

Even the baby thinks you’re an asshole.

    Nice. I especially love the Go the Fuck to Sleep book. Bought it. I tried reading it to my teenagers, but they stay up too late. It’s not do-able.

What's your take on it?

My Life Less Ordinary

They say you die twice. The first time is when you take your last breath, and the second is the last time someone ever speaks your name. So do something with your life that is worth remembering, love your family and friends, and be every aspect of healthy you can be.
