My Mother-In-Law on meeting my mom for the first time:

“I promise I’ll behave myself, I won’t get drunk, use foul language or flash my boobs”.

I only sorta think she’s joking. We get along really well, but she has humor like no other…..

honestly, I cant think of anything Future Mother-In-Law has said to me or about me.

I’m grabbing some popcorn — I have a feeling the responses to this post are going to be awesome.

“Who ends their wedding at midnight?  That reception will be boring so I’m going to throw an after party.”  This was referring to our wedding and we were not invited to the after party (wouldn’t have gone if you could have paid me anyways).

My grandma joked at the rehearsal to just do it then.  Mother-In-Law said “NOOOOO!  I can’t lose him a day earlier than I already have to.”

“You don’t want to go dress shopping too early because you’ll gain weight.”  And what did I do?  I lost weight.

Screaming at me: “You’re approving of cheating.  You’re approving of CHEATING!!”  This was in regards to giving FIL’s wife a corsage, who was yes, the other woman 20 years ago.  However Mother-In-Law is the other woman as well and has been for quiet some time.  Not only that but she wasn’t faithful either.

@SoontobeMrsA: haha. there will be hell to pay if she doesn’t keep her promise.

I also let her borrow my disc of engagement photos, because she wanted to print a few for my Fiance’s grandmother.

I got an email from her the next day asking me “uh… Sheena… so like, what would it cost for a new disc”.

She pretended for a whole day that she had destroyed my engagement disc.

My Future Mother-In-Law and I were having a discussion about a low-cut dress and not revealing the “ladies” to our guests.

Future Mother-In-Law: “You can just use booby-tape. (insert my Fiance name here) used to date a cheerleader. She used it all the time”

ME: (awkward silence)

Why do I care what my FI’s high school girlfriend did to hold in her boobs? A simple suggestion of the tape would have sufficed.

“I don’t think I’m even going to come to your wedding.” (as a threat)

Not Future Mother-In-Law but here are a few choice words from Future Grandma in Law…

“Aren’t you the least bit upset that you’re going to spend eternity in hell?”

“You’re a nice girl, too bad you’re Satan’s Bell Keeper”

*Both of these comments are in reference to me being Catholic.

“There are a few more people I’d like to invite that you didn’t have on your list, so I’m just going to take my invitation and have it copied so I can send them something.”

Uh, no, you’re not. 1) If the quality on your copies sucks, that’s going to be a poor reflection on my parents, who are hosting this wedding, and 2) we’re having a small 50 person “close friends and family only” wedding and we would have no room for these extra people who we don’t know and don’t want there in the first place!!!

Thankfully Fiance made her see reason…
