totally wedding irrelevant well not really..
but I”m hanging out with my Future Mother-In-Law in about half an hour by myself for the first time! & i’m nervous haha I don’t know why.. maybe because every other time I’ve been around her my Fiance has always been there..
we’re going to go look at a reception venue and possibly put down the deposit so I guess it’s wedding related 🙂

It is a little weird! I had my first experience with that last weekend. It turned out nicely, though! I was super nervous at first, but we just talked about wedding-related things and her younger daughter who had come in town from college. And I honestly feel closer to her now for it!

I still find it awkward. I don’t think her and I can hold much of a conversation as our interests are completely different.

Good luck! It’s always a little wierd the first few times but just think… you’ll be spending holidays/birthdays/etc with this lady. At least she is extending an invite to hang out!

Good luck! I was super nervous the first couple of times we hung out without my hubby. Just relax and maybe think of a few questions to ask if there isn’t much conversation going.
I think I got over it after I went to Aqua-size with my Mother-In-Law. Somehow I got through that one without her even seeing my tattoo!

FI’s mom & I went out for sushi alone, and thank god they had a long wait for seating and we went next door to grab some wine! It losened us both up and it somehow made every meeting with her since very laid back.

I still find it awkward… we don’t have too much in common.
Good luck though! I wish my Mother-In-Law was my bff since I’m around her so much!

thanks for the well wishes bees 🙂 just got home and it went REALLY WELL. 🙂 his mom is sooo nice to me , she’s always been and we’re both talkers so we talked the whole time. I think I was just nervous because Fiance has always been there but yeah it was great and she insisted on buying me KFC lol because she said I lost weight and I told her it’s all the wedding stress . She has funny little quirks which make me like her even more.. but yeah it was great!!

@pandaboo: Glad it worked out! Now that you got that awkward first time out of the way, the other times probably won’t be so weird.
Wish I could do this with my Future Mother-In-Law but there’s a severe language barrier…

Aww fun!! The first few times I hung out with Mother-In-Law alone it was a little awkard. She’s got a really nice, but very strong personality, so she’s a bit intimidating. But now we’re like best buds. I go over to their house all the time to just hang out with her and watch football. So much fun!

I am only handle smiling and nodding at my FMIL conversations, no way could I stand one and one… shes crazy lol In fact I don’t think I could handle one on one with any of my FIL’s, except my niece as shes pretty awesome.

@MapleMoose: awe I’m sorry. english is my FMIL’s second language but she’s pretty fluent so there’s a little bit of language barrier but not really.. she understands everything I say & she talks a lot. but yeah I know language can get in the way.
@piglet_625: awe I hope my Future Mother-In-Law and I can be like that except I don’t think we’ll be watching football haha.. 😉
@Genuine513: LOL 🙂
