I’m so glad my FI wasn’t here to see me pick out what I’m wearing to the get together his extended family every year. It took me about forty minutes and I went through about twenty or so shirts before I decided. I don’t feel like I should still be nervous around people that I’ve known almost five years but I know it’s partially because I’ve gotten zero sleep and I’m not great around large groups of people. I know I’ve spent more time on this before but it’s not formal so it feels dumb to spend forty minutes on something that most people just come to in what they were already wearing. I also know it’s partially because we’re the next wedding in line plus his brother had his baby in July and I feel like it’ll be the first time everyone sees me interact with the baby. My FI agrees that we’ll probably get multiple questions on when we’ll have a baby and that people will be looking at us interact with him with hope that we’ll conceive a baby the night of March 6 so I’m already nervous about having to answer that (especially because my FI seems to always disappear just when the heavy questions are asked). Just thought I’d share, I feel like it was more stressful than it needed to be.

Ugh I hate people who assume that just because you are getting married, that you will have babies right away. You know what happens when you assume lol.

@MrsSaltWaterTaffy: We’ve been asked by his immediate family a lot and once or twice from everyone else since she got pregnant last November. But I have this strong feeling seeing me actually hold him will bring on more questions.

@mandb122: Aw, don’t feel bad–I’ve been through my wardrobe a billion times, trying to decide what to wear at my (ex)in-laws, tomorrow. LOL! I’ve known them for almost 10 years, now, but they haven’t seen me since our break-up back in May. I’m now 6 dress sizes smaller, and as bad as it sounds, I sort of want to wow them. 😛 On top of that, however, I’m worried how people will act around me, since we are split up, now.. especially since ex-FI proposed last Christmas Eve. Blech.
Just breathe.. and, if all else fails, have a few extra drinks! 😉

@brighteyedgirl: I would have a few extra drinks if they drank. They just have tea and soda usually because it’s a very family oriented family which is fine but I could use some drinks around them sometimes. To give you an idea though we are still surprised everyone seems fine with the fact that we’ve lived together for the past three and a half years without being married.
