- Wedding: August 2013
I’ve already had my wedding so this was a while ago, but its a funny story.
MIL is obsessive about cleaning. Her house is SPOTLESS and she still has 4 kids living in it, from ages 11-17! When I had my bridal shower this side of her really showed. Some people got me nice stuff fromm the registry, some got me other nice things. And then she got me the most useful gift of all. Two garbage cans, complete with bags, a dust cloth and a whole bunch of scrubbies.
These gifts seem weird, but they’re something FI and I would never have thought to get ourselves. Since we didn’t live together before our wedding, we’ve been finding them incredibly useful since we got back from our honeymoon! Yay for a practical minded MIL!
