So FI’s parents own a store in town. I get a call from Future Mother-In-Law asking me what I am doing sunday. I told her I have work at 5. Why?
” Oh good, because sunday morning we are going to be shooting advertisements for the store. Want to come?”
“Ya, That sounds interesting, I would love to come watch.”
” Great, wear something nice since the photo is is going to be on the Billborad(s) in town.”
” Yea. Future Father-In-Law wants a picture of the family, with the words, “Happy feet, from our family to yours this Chirstmas” ( they own a flooring store.)
“See you later!”
Not entirely sure that I agreed to this. Either way they could have given me more of a warning of more than 48 hrs, My hair is all shaggy, I ran out of contacts and I am much heavier than I want to be, hence we postponed the Epics till MAY.
Don’t get me wrong,I love the fact that they want me included in this… Nothing screams “we love you, and you are part of our family” more than putting a picture on a billborad. But PEOPLE will be seeing this….I am totally haveing an anxiety attack….
I think tomrrow I am going to get some new clothes that fit good, and get a hair cut after work…. Any other suggestions? I want to look nice for our “family Ad”

@imalittlebirdie: we are our own worst critics. I would do what you already talked about and just freshen things up a bit. Get a couple good workouts in, get a good nights sleep the next few days, drink lots of water, make sure to moisturize your skin everyday really good. maybe do an extra conditioning on your hair after you get it cut. And find an outfit you feel good in. Try not to stress too much as you do only have two days so do what you can and try and relax 🙂 Im sure you will come out looking great!

I would just relax and smile pretty! I am sure you look lovely, and a new haircut always makes me feel better. Have fun!

I think it is really nice they want to include you. I would also have a mini freakout though too. I would get a nice outfit and maybe a hair cut and then try to stand towards the back:)

Update: Well the photos all kinda sucked, but it wasn’t my fault. lol Me and Future Sister-In-Law ( who is a skinny little thing) were not terribly thrilled. The photog was one of their workers B/f who was completely hammerd while taking the photos. ( he showed up drunk) and the ILs had wine/beer/ snacks/ presents for the little ones as a thank you for everyone coming ( it was us, and the families of the two workers.) and the guy drank 5 beers and 1/2 bottle of wine! ILs were ok with this because they are friends but wow….
Anywho, I was turned sideways and crammed between Fiance and a shelf of hardwood, and to make room I was bent weird so it is NOT a flattering pic, and SIL is also in an odd pose so we both look wonky. Mother-In-Law says we’re gonna be so enlarged that no one will notice as they drive by that we look weird. I hope so. Fiance said i looked nice so i’m gonna go with that and hope for the best. lol

I laughed so hard at “Nothing screams “we love you, and you are part of our family” more than putting a picture on a billborad.”
I think the pictures fine. You look great, but I understand the freaking out part! And, it is always nice when Fiance compliments you aswell, right? 🙂
