~Our Renewals~ Hey my WBC family! I've been a little hush- hush lately. Our 14th wedding ann...
it's been awhile since i've put anything up here and for that i'm sorry! My last semster of nursing school has been very crazy!!
update on my 30 day shred: well it only lasted 10 days.......lol.....i didnt even get to level 2 and i stopped. not because i thought it was tough, but because i could even find 30 minutes in my shedule to do it......sad i know. i will try again once the semster is over! 11 more weeks!!!
as for wedding planning: it's been kind of a stand still.... what i do know is what i dreamed from my flowers is kind of expensive......but i have time and i still have to decide on what florist i want to go with. i think i might go with the same one a friend of mine went with. she had great looking flowers for bouquets and the tables that had them. and the other tables had these great crystal balls, which she said were reasonably priced and they had a bunch of different things like that. so i think i might go check them out soon.
other news: FH's step grandma past away last week. Turns out my intuition was right....she couldnt be trusted......
okay so here is the story....she was FH's grandpa's mistress. he divorsed FH's grandma and married "joan". "joan" was 11 years younger than FH's grandpa. Grandpa is...was...well to do. turns out she scared grandpa into putting lots of money in her and her daughter's (not biologically grandpa's) names. she said she was going to divorse him if he didnt...........so now most of grandpa's money is gone......to a family we will never see or hear from ever again......as much as i feel bad for him, i cant help to think Karma was getting him back for cheating on his 1st wife and then divorsing her and loving his money more than his family. (i would never tell FH's this because i know he loves his grandpa and doesnt see the situation for what it is)
i guess why i'm even tell you all this is because FMIL has been telling my mom that her and my FFIL all of a sudden dont make much money and have 4 kids. now she never says she cannot give us the $8,000-10,000 she said they would. (and that i'm counting on and based our budget off it.) now when we were all talking about budget she brought up how we should split everything in 3rds. my parents and i were great with this. i then asked my parents how much they were willing and able to give and FH asked his parents. both set said the same amount. so my budget is $24,000-30,000. so far it's looking like its going to be closer to $30,000. my hall alone is $14,000ish and FMIL said the location was a dream come true for her........well i'm now wondering why would she tell FH that she could give us $8,000-$10,000 if they couldnt? i really hope she wasnt planning on getting money from her dad, because my parent promised the same amount, with no help, and i know based on jobs that my parent make less money........
so what is a girl to do?
i guess i'll talk to FH. have him ask his mom why she keeps saying those things to my mom.....i'm just afraid she is going to say that cant give us that much. if that's the case it's back to square one....and the first thing to go will be the expensive hall (which FMIL is inlove with). this also makes it possible that we might have to change our date, which could mess up all of our other plans we have booked so far.....i'm really hoping they can still help us......
UPDATE (9/30/2011): so FH talked to his mom. She told him she has no clue what i'm talking about, because she never said those things to my mom..........as much as i'm mad for her calling my mom a liar; i am very happy she can still give us $10, 000 from the wedding!!! i'm going to ignore the implying my mom is a liar part and continue wedding planning. Now i just have to talk to the FH about him wanting to get married sooner and me not wanting to change the date. although todays weather does suck, it is way coolered then it usually is. and has been raining a lot this september. the good thing is that it caused the leaves to change sooner. the bad news is it gray and cold out. so maybe changing the wedding to may/june would be better.......no i think i'll stay with my original plan. lets see what FH thinks. I think what he really wants is for me to move in. which i think i will as soon as the semster ends!!
