My First At Home

Fueling up

  My attempt to lose a few pounds conflicts with my number one form of hospitality-food.  So I was happy to come up with this low ww point trifle.

Coffee, tea or chai?

I always leave dishes on the drain board because a house too tidy isn't comfortable. 

I like the girls to be involved.

 Incense to battle the smell of our Bostie.

All ready.

I am wanting to be more hospitable and decided to pick up the lost Victorian tradition of "At Homes".  Today was my first.  I was a little nervous no one would come.  It is hard to simply put out an open weekly invitation and then wait.  Two of my wonderful friends showed up and we had a great visit while the children played.  I look forward to next week.  I'll keep you posted!


  1. What a pretty kitchen you have. I've always wanted to do that "at home" designation... I'm glad yours turned out so nicely!

  2. Fun! I want to come next week!

  3. What a beautiful kitchen! And I love those lamps in the background of the last photo.

  4. I will be there before too long!

  5. You look beautiful! Hahaha I always have a drain board full of dishes too.

  6. Love that idea! I always enjoy preparing everything for when someone comes over... I'd love to know the recipe of the low calory trifle! Have a great weekend!

  7. I wish I could pop by, imagine your face if I walked in ha ha! Maybe if I win the lottery, oh and I guess I'd have to know where you live ;o)

    Looks like fun, I could never do this all my friends live miles away apart from my best friend who live next door and I see them all the time!

  8. ooh what fun!! You did such a great job gettin all ready and you look amazing! I wish i could swing by...oh what a hoot that would be! For sure i'd bring the sara lee!!!! I love that your doing this & your baby chicks get to see this example of hospitality! bravo mama bravo!!!! Yes to straight talkin mama...the lotto...i'd for sure pick her up on the way!!!!

  9. Congratulation on your First At Home. What a success! Everything looks so perfect and you look soooo beautiful. WOW!!!
