    I snack in bed. He doesn’t like it. We compromise by making sure I don’t eat anything overly messy.

    @Happy Hopeful Bee:  The odd time I’ve done it, I end up with crumbs there lol. I can’t recall eating in our bed at home for years now.

    The only time we really eat in bed is when we’re in a hotel. Sometimes there’s no table there so where else do you eat snacks and/or room service?

    Mr TTR and I don’t snack in bed… infact we have a Tv in our Bedroom we rarely watch.

    The exception is the Weekend.

    Then we very much do enjoy Breakfast in Bed (full on everything… Juice, Coffee, Eggs, Bacon & Toast)

    Cover the bed with the Weekend Papers, and we are good for a few hours… more if we turn on the Tv if there is something we want to watch… Old Movies are a handsdown fave.

    I LOVE these lazy Weekend mornings (that often stretch into the afternoon) …

    They are more common in the cold winter months than in the Summertime…

    It is fun to stay in bed and start the day slowly when the day outside isn’t that great, and I can see all the snow outside our Bedroom Window.

    Hope this helps,

    So, I VOTED as follows



    That said we are uber-careful about eating in bed, especially when it comes to toast (WHY we don’t eat snacks in bed) cause ya, crumbs can be a pain in the butt… LITERALLY.

    Eating in bed isn’t something either of us do. Occasionally, I’ll place something to drink on my nightstand, but that’s it. Mainly because I wouldn’t want to chance spilling anything on our bedding, lol.

    We spend waaaaaay too much time in our bed (nooo, not in a cheeky way!) as our couch is tiny and downstairs living room is cold 😛  Our bed is basically a second couch!  Oops.  We’re both very similar & have no issues eating in bed, in fact we have a Sunday morning ritual of pancakes in bed every week 🙂  [darling darling FH makes them, brings all the toppings upstairs & we make them up there.  yum]

    I have snacks in bed with a napkin so never any mess. Fi could care less, he doesn’t really eat anything in bed. Maybe fruit snacks sometimes that’s about it.

    I find eating in bed repulsive. It’s a huge pet peeve of mine.

    I tnink DH has trained me not to eat in bed. I used to in my late teens/early twenties but now  I am like, “Hell no, crumbs!” Crumbs are evil.

    We do not eat or snack in bed. I am a clean freak so if I see crumbs in bed I would be washing everything. I realize I am obsessed with cleaning and having a very clean environment around me but eating in bed is a big no no for me!

    We don’t eat in bed or on the couch because we have dogs who get up in our faces if we do! We have on occasion eaten on bed when it’s insanely hot because we only have 1 window unit a/c and it’s in the bedroom.

    I hate eating in bed! I never do it. DH eats a snack in bed almost every night. I’m not really bothered by it.
