Warm fuzzies...

mixed with a little bit of frustration. The engagement party was this weekend and it was nice. I liked seeing the room full of people there to support us as we embark on this journey together. I just wish that my mom would chill out. I mean seriously, it's ridiculous. There were plenty of people on-hand to help her set up and clean up but she was still having a fit over getting stuff done. I am soooooo glad that we hired a wedding coordinator because she would have a melt down on the wedding day if she had to handle it.

On another note, I think that the combining of families will be quite interesting. We are so different from each other. One glaring difference is my family is on time to stuff and his.. not so much.

As we delve more into this process I feel the pressures from various family members to move the wedding up or to have it at a church or to have children there. I know it may be difficult for a lot of my family to understand, but we (as in myself and my fiance) are going to do this thing the way we see fit.

Weddings bring out the best and the worse in people and I am really grateful that I have people in my life to ground me (thanks bridesmaids)

Awww.. you're welcome! And I think (especially after this weekend) that you and the Mr. will do just fine handling the family thing. I'm so happy for you two.

Oh sorry meant to say it in the other comment. Maybe Stef and I could spearhead the bridal shower when it comes to help with the stress level. That'll be so close to the actual wedding and we don't want anyone to stress too much.
