    @gingerkitten:  Sometimes (if its not too cold) I’ll strip down to a t-shirt and my undies. And those always just HAPPEN to be the days where the mailman needs a signature or the in-laws decide to drop by…

    @gingerkitten:  Nope. I start work at 6pm. I spend all day every day in my pjs unless I leave the house for some reason.

    Gosh, never. Luckily I usually know when I have a package to look for, but generally I am stripped down into a baggy tshirt, undies, and maybe sweats. Never a bra. The few times someone has knocked on the door unexpectantly I have run like lightning to the bedroom to at least throw on pants and a bra.

    I find this such a different proposition than the house being in order for guests.

    Unnanounced guests aren’t expecting you to be dressed as you would be for work or a party. I have no problem with people seeing me without make-up or in comfy clothes for that sort of thing. If I was working in the yard, I’m going to be dirty. If I was sleeping in, I’m going to have bed head. If I have been posting on WeddingBee, I probably have had a few glasses of wine. What you get is what you see!

    I mean, certain times, sure, if you roll up to my home and peek into my window, you might see us banging in the living room. This may or may not change how you feel about me inviting you to have a seat when you enter my home. That’s your own doing.

    Generally, though, I can’t imagine not answering the door for a friend or family member. Or a neighbor, what if they need help? If it’s truly unannounced, they can come inside and wait a moment for me to become presentable.

    Unless I’m sick or it’s past 9 pm, I’m usually in at least jeans and a t-shirt.

    Lol, Mr TTR & I often are in what can only be described as “lounge wear” around the house when we are here alone…

    We are all about the comfort…

    Sweats – Yoga Pants – Pjs – Bathrobes etc

    When we do have “street clothes” on they tend to be our most ratty of things… comfortable jeans with holes etc.

    So ya, not the best looking of things

    When we plan to go out we tend to have a shower and get dressed

    If we know people are coming over we throw on more presentable clothes

    Nope, I’m in PJs/comfort clothes as much as possible. However I have no problem seeing any family/friends in my pjs lol so I don’t care.

    @gingerkitten:  Are pj bottoms and a tshirt and sweats not appropriate for guests? Because I wear that unless I am meeting with my boss or something.

    @MexiPino:  laughing at “unrestrained boobies” haha. Fiance doesn’t understand why taking my bra off is one of the first things I do when I get home.

    @sostobe:  OMG my Fiance does that too!! I don’t know how he does it!!! And once he takes his work clothes off, he changes into jeans! And when he wakes up he puts on jeans and shoes right away! I’m always asking him if he is going somewhere and he is just like”no, why?” Cause you’re dressed, fool! 


    I am never dressed to leave the house unless I actually plan on leaving the house in the immediate future! I’ve gotten over having my future inlaws dropping by and seeing me in tattered pjs and no makeup. I’m one of those people who can’t walk to the mailbox without being fully dressed!

    I’m yeah, so I’m always pretty much nude.  Typically, I have to run to my room to dress in something, anything, while the Fiance runs interference.  It’ll be such an adjustment once a lil one comes along.

    We never have guests, but if we did I am mostly prepared appearance-wise. I usually wear some jeans and a t-shirt, blouse, or hoodie around the house and almost always have my hair and makeup done by 11AM at the latest (unless I’m not feeling well). More often than not I’m in my same outfit until I start getting ready for bed at around 9-10 PM. If I feel like wearing something more comfortable when I get home from work I generally change into some leggings, a tank top, and a long cardigan (in the winter) or some terry cloth shorts and a t-shirt (in the summer). Both outfits I don’t mind being seen in. My husband, however, could spend all day in a towel lol.

    As soon as I get home, I change. I put sweat pants if it’s cold or shorts in the summer. I wear shirts year round at home and a sweater is it’s cold. I pretty much need to know that a guest is coming. I like my house to be clean or at least pick up the mess and change myself into decent clothes lol! unless is someone very close like family I don’t mind. I also like to prepare something like a beverage, coffee, snacks just something small to share.
