Ask The Frugal Hostess: Martha Stewart is a Thief Edition

Dear Frugal Hostess,
What kind of gift should you get someone for their 3rd, 4th, or 5th wedding?
Best wishes,
Sanctity O' Marriage

Dear Ms. O' Marriage,
Hmm.  That's a tough one.  How about a box of Lucky Charms?

Dear Frugal Hostess,
What's your greatest regret?

Dear FR,
The Frugal Hostess has one regret.  As a child, she and her best friend Martha used to play a delightful game they called "Hostess."  One girl would be The Cheap Hostess, and one girl would be The Expensive Hostess.  The children would flit around a dinner table, setting and resetting the table.  Much hilarity ensued.  Time passed, and the girls grew up, but they continued to share the dream of one day running a lifestyle empire that celebrated entertaining.

Cut to the late 1980s, when it was time to put their dream in motion. Cheap was upgraded to Frugal and Martha was upgraded to Martha Stewart.  Bitch.
Bitterly yours,
The Frugal Hostess

Dear FruHo,
I'm in a bind.  My wedding anniversary falls on a weekend that my in-laws have asked to come for a visit.  While I love and adore them, I've been planning a special weekend away to spend some quality time with my wife.  How can I tell her that her parents aren't welcome?

Dear RubHubs,
Sorry, but you are busted.  Even if you do remember the actual date of your wedding anniversary, which The Frugal Hostess highly doubts, there is no frickin' way that you actually planned a celebration in advance.  So, you know, quit lying and sack up to the fact that your MIL and FIL are coming over.  You lying liar.  Gah.
The Frugal Hostess has lots of love to give. Or at least plenty of smart-ass advice.  You can join the Frugalistas on Facebook for exclusive content, follow on Twitter @frugalhostess, or subscribe so that you always know when a new post appears.
