Recently we found out we needed to change the venue for our wedding, well the state too! lol. We lost the deposit that we paid here in LA, and I was having a hard time figuring out how we were going to come up with this other deposit for the MI venue (it’s $1000!)
Yesterday I asked my FI to see if his dad could give us part of the 5k that he offered for the wedding (that would be available in Feb ’12) now so we could get this taken care of. I figured the answer would be no because that’s a lot of money to come up with on short notice.
BUT HE SAID HE COULD!!!! AH! Huge weight off my shoulders. I almost started crying when FI text messaged me that! (been oddly emotional lately..) I told him to tell his dad that hes my favorite future father-in-law ever. (lol)
The check should be here by the end of next week!
Oh.. and on the drive to work today I got a text message from FI’s dad (who doesn’t ever text me) saying: “Hey, just a heads up. You are the best daughter-in-law EVER” It totally made my morning!

@misskarianne: Awwww!!!! That is sooooooo freaking sweet!!! That would have made my day too!!! I’m blessed to say that my future Father in Law is the same way…He just called randomly one day and was like “hey…price some limos for you for the wedding….I don’t care how anyone else gets there (lol) but you have to have something nice” ….I love that man!!! Congrats again and good luck with the planning! 🙂

@2PeasinaPod: we DO have a great relationship too. Funny cause I have only ever been around him Twice. (He lives in TN), and last time we went there to visit.. he passed FI when we were getting out of the car and hugged me first! HAHA. I said to FI… “he likes me better” 😉
