I used to be on WB when I was planning my wedding. Haven’t been back since, but now have a question I need some help w/ and who better to ask than a group of internet strangers?
SO here goes:
I’m 22 weeks pregnant. Back in June when I first announced to the world that my husband and I were expecting, a close acquaintance had offered to host a couples baby shower for us. We graciously accepted her offer and talked about how fun it would be to get everyone together around the holidays. Her husband and my husband work together and a group of us hang out every so often. We’ve known them for several years now and they’re really nice and generous people. Well since her offer, I haven’t heard anything. I’m passed the half way point now and I’m kind of wondering if she’s still planning on hosting one.
I should note that I’m having a small shower in my hometown, so it’s not a big deal if this doesn’t happen. It really won’t hurt my feelings. I would usually just forget about it but I’ve had a couple friends in the town I currently live in ask about a shower, and if anyone’s offered to host one and how they can help…yada yada yada. Questions I don’t really know how to answer because I don’t know if the shower is still happening or not.
So, my question – is it totally tacky and gauche to ask her about it? Do I just let it go and wait and see if she reaches out? Am I jumping the gun here? I definitely don’t want to put her on the spot, but at the same time I’d like to know. So…yeah. Here I am, in dilemma land, ruminating on what to do.
Help a sister out, please!
