- Wedding: September 2011
Inside H’s mother’s card to us this past weekend of our wedding, she said she would pay for our plane tickets to Las Vegas and watch our baby for us.
H’s mom is a big gambler — after she left our gift opening on Sunday she went to the casino. H does like to gamble but he has a hard time stopping and said himself he’d rather go to Vegas with 10k that he could just “blow”…not with the measly $500 we’d bring.
On top of that, we originally planned to go to Nashville this winter. It’s where we met, it’s where we have friends and family, and we haven’t been there in 2 years. We love it there.
Basically, Vegas is not on our top 10 list of places we’d like to vacation. We don’t have a lot of money to spend therefore we know that we’d either OVERSPEND in Vegas or we’d not get to do all the thigns (like shows and shopping and gambling) that we’d like to do if we had the money… The other reason his mom is offering this is because tickets are really cheap from her city to Vegas…like around $130 each. Tickets to Nashville are close to $400 each.
We figure that we’ll end up spending more ourselves in Vegas than in Nashville.
So, is it rude to ask his mom to pitch in the money towards our Nashville tickets (we’d pay the rest)?
Or should we just go to Vegas, since neither of us have been there?
