So one of my FB friends got engaged earlier this year and is getting married next weekend. Well throughout her wedding planning process she has taken to FB several times to ask for help with her wedding. It started out innocent by her asking for recommendations for affordable venues. Then, she asked for people to give her their adresses. People actually posted their address on her status…the whole thing was weird. Next she asked for DJ recomendations which wasn’t that weird until someone tagged an actual DJ and she commented something like “No, not a real DJ. We have a spotify playlist and we just need someone to hit play and play special songs” *eye roll* This week she has taken the cake (I’m surprised she hasn’t asked her FB friends to bake it for her) because she’s asking if anyone would volunteer to decorate the day of the wedding which was already tacky enough but just now she posted a status asking if anyone would like to donate to her honeymoon fund!!
hahaha guys, I can’t with this girl! We were kinda close at one point when I had first met her at an old job but wowee, I thought she had better manners than this. The thing about the honeymoon fund literally made me LOL when I read it and thought you guys would get a kick out of it, too.

Lol I’d donate $1 to her honeymoon fund and wish her fun at the local motel!

Oh man, this is too good. Facebook acquaintances can make for high comedy.
Last year a girl I know from college posted her 1-year-old daughter’s Christmas “Wish List” for everyone, since “everyone” kept asking what they could get her she just thought that would be easier! I rolled my eyes enough when I saw the list (seriously, send it to your immediate family and the few friends who you exchange gifts with, don’t fish on FB for everyone to buy your kid gifts) but the best was when I clicked on it. It had a handful of toys and then a bunch of diapers and wipes.

One of my FB friends recently posted a link to get baby registry saying that she knows a lot of people can’t make it the shower (because she had moved to a different state from where she is originally from) but if they wanted to buy her a gift here’s her registry. I rolled my eyes so hard.

Last christmas a friend posted this https://www.huffingtonpost.com/raquel-dapice/10-month-olds-letter-to-santa_b_4427512.html
funniest thing I had read in a while (not least because my son was 11 months old at Christmas)
Perhaps post it this year if you get any unsolisited children’s christmas lists 🙂

Here’s sometning I saw on FB that made me cringe this week. Someone I know who is soon having her 3rd baby posted the link to her baby registry “just in case” anyone wanted to buy anything. Third. Baby. Other kids are 4 and 2.

They’re definitely a thing where I’m from (southern midwest) but for your baby shower. That’s like posting your wedding registry on facebook and saying “in case anyone who can’t make (knowing A LOT if not the majority of your facebook friends aren’t even invited) here’s how you can still buy me a present!”

I deleted FB long ago because of so many “friends” and privacy reasons but I do miss it for the little laughs out would get people like that!

I had a girl like this on my FB this summer. Now I realize she actually asks for handouts all the time.. and I now see this behaviour in others more easily.

I just saw a post in my local mom’s board asking if a shower for her second son (born 22 months apart) would be tacky. The amount of people telling her it wasn’t and to go for it made me hate the internet a little bit.
I’m due with my second daughter, they’ll be 3 years apart, and I can’t even think of one decent thing to ask Mother-In-Law for…. 2nd babies REALLY don’t need anything new, other than maybe a couple of clean white onesies that haven’t been poo-sploded in and new pacis (so fun, throw me a freaking shower already).
