Hahaha!!! Gotta love inappropriate family members.  My Future Mother-In-Law told me to watch for a package from her and her husband a while back. Said it was only for me, not Fi, but kinda also for Fi, and that her husband had picked it out. Naturally, I was TERRIFIED of what was going to arrive!  Thankfully it turned out to be a really cute unique garter, and a tank top and underoos set that was not at all inappropriate.

I think I would have died if I opened up a package of lingerie from Future Mother-In-Law and her husband who I have never met … Granny would just be five times worse!

LOL!  I’m at work right now shaking with laughter and tears out of my eyes trying to be quiet!  Your granny sounds feisty!  Very funny, but oh so inappropriate.

That kind of sucks about the shower thing.  I think others should know you can’t control other people.  I hope it works out for you.


Good for you for rolling with the punches.  You’re right- sometimes you just have to roll your eyes, shrug your shoulders, and laugh!

Haha, your granny sounds like a funny old lady. I love how old people have no filters. At my bridal shower, my FI’s mom told me we could do whatever I wanted because it was my shower. FI’s grandma heard that and said, “Just no strippers!” What? Where did that come from, granny?

I think it is so funny when family members buy ridiculously inappropriate presents. I usually think of the family members who bought us an (appropriate!) gift when I use it (like the aunt who got us our blender, the cookie cutters from my cousin, etc.). I could never, ever wear/use lingerie my grandmother bought me for that reason. We don’t want to be thinking about you when we’re doing that!!!
