We just recieved a courtesy call for my FIL, confirming that a flight was legitemate (We live with my in-laws).
We had been told by our in-laws that there would be a surprise for us at the wedding. The flight is for our closest friend – from South Africa! We haven’t seen him in 2 years (he was DH’s flatmate and my close friend when we lived in Japan. If it wasn’t for his pushing, I don’t know if we would have started dating). I’m kind of annoyed that American Airlines spoiled the surprise, but beyond extatic that our friend is coming! I have the best in-laws ever.

Oh that’s so exciting!! 😀 besides the spoiled surprise though, but who knows, maybe you’ll get some more time with your friend now that you know he’s going to be here!! We surprised my Grandma one time for her 75th and she was SO FREAKING MAD that we hadn’t told her we’d been there for a couple days prior. Like, it was adorable to see her so fired up..”you came ALL the way out here and didn’t even phone your own grandmother when you got here! That is so muh quality time we could have had!” Haha. gmas are adrable!!
Anyways, I totally went on a babble fest there.. Moral of the story is, now that you know snag all the time you can get, and have ball at your wedding with your besty!!

@Cheree292: Yes, I’m thinking it’s best to not let them know we know. It’s frustrating though, as I just want to dance and squeal and hug my in-laws!
