The One Thing Your Holiday Houseguests Won’t Tell You from Apartment Therapy

This past weekend we hosted our first houseguests since moving (which was back in late September). One of my good friends from college came to visit with her two children, one of whom I’d never met (and may get the best behaved baby award—she was the easiest one-year-old… ever).

We had a great weekend and picked right up where we left off. Don’t you love those types of friendships?

The only thing that I found myself worrying about was the temperature in the house at night. Since these were our first guests, I had no idea how hot or cold the guest bedroom would get—especially with closed doors and sleeping babies.

I guess I am not the only one who frets about temperature; I stumbled upon this article from our friends at Apartment Therapy this morning and it was so relevant to my weekend. To read the full article, click here.

It says that the most important thing that guests won’t tell you is that your home is too cold, or maybe too hot.

This is something that I will keep in mind when hosting future guests. We’ll have a thermostat crash course before they go to bed!

    My parents NEVER kept their upstairs comfortable for us as guests. Fortunately, they installed ceiling fans in every bedroom, so that helped. Truly, in winter and in summer, the rooms were too hot and stuffy. (And we did discuss it with them, being their children!)
