Surviving Those Family Visits During The Upcoming Holidays.


Hey All!

After seeing clips from the film This is Where I Leave You hitting theaters on September 19th, I was immediately reminded of the upcoming holiday season that is quickly approaching. It’s amazing how quickly the Holidays are approaching. It can be a very crazy, busy, and stressful time to say the least.


I’m already planning for my large crazy Latino family and me together under one roof. There is lots of planning involved and I’m always amazing I manage to pull off every holiday season with out any major hitches.

I do it with the help of some great tips I’ve learned over the years that I’m sharing today over on Check Out my very helpful post HERE on!

Check them out now on SheKnows and I hope the tips help you have a much smoother Holiday Season.

    We don’t get a lot of family coming for holidays because they are all in Canada and we are in Texas. Last year my Mom & Dad came for Thanksgiving and my sister and her family came for Christmas. That was the first time in 14 years that any one came to our home for Christmas!

    I used to have my husband’s family come over for Christmas Eve, but it got to be too much of a hassle… I always travel out of town the day after Christmas, so I don’t need a lot of things to do around the holidays anyways. 🙂

    I’m reading the book right now before the movie hits theaters. I can’t wait — love me some Jason Bateman.

    Thankfully I don’t have a lot of out of town family. They can all go home!! lol

  • My family is gigantic, and, although we all get along, it’s just a lot of people in small spaces on holidays. We try to save our sanity by mixing whole group activities with smaller groups getting together. It eliminates so much stress.

  • I have a small, close knit family so the holidays are all about special times and love without the added stress. I am definitely thankful for that!
