@mnp:  Forget office guy.  People at work are usually weird anyways.  His opinion doesn’t matter.

Mother-In-Law and SIL didn’t believe us when we announced we were engaged.  They thought we were joking, so they just kept setting the dinner table.

We had to CONVINCE them!!

I felt absolutely crushed that neither one of them asked to see my ring.

I wouldn’t expect men to oogle over the ring or gush over the proposal story lol.  Don’t take it personally.

Hmmmm that’s strange. Everyone I’ve told thus far has been pretty congratulatory and happy for us. Those are strange people :/ I hope the reactions get better from here!

You are preaching to the choir. The only people happy for us were my mom, my best friend and random nursing school people (but they typically just said congrats and went on with our conversation-not like super excited or anything) but the rest of my family were horrible to us! 

His family was a bit better, but they typically don’t get excited. At least, I’ve never seen them super excited about something like that.

Better than “are you pregnant?” (which I got from two uncles who were mostly kidding)

@asscherlover:  Lol! I got that from  my supposed “best friend” (She calls herself that, but we are just not close anymore. I think she doesn’t like that I’m getting married :()
