The shower was... disappointing to put it nicely. The turn out was good, about 90 or people and we got some nice gifts but it was VERY chaotic. FH and I had to not only run around the day before picking up last minute things but we had to set things up AND host it ourselves when FMIL was the one who was supposed to be hosting. She had MANY offers for help from both my mother and my Matron of Honor but she insisted she could handle it. We didn't get to spend but 30 minutes together the whole shower and that was just for our Bride/Groom questioner and opening presents. We were either refilling things or trying to say hello/good-bye to people. On top of that the Best Man couldn't make it because he had to work that night and my Matron of Honor showed up late and then was upset because I didn't introduce her to anyone (yes I know your reading this). I didn't have time to pee the entire afternoon let alone introduce people! We finally decided to just leave at 4:30. I was done and couldn't take FMIL acting like a damn martyr and talking about how tired she was because OMG she did so much. I just have to keep telling myself "It's the thought that counts... it's the thought that counts... it's the thought that counts..." I love the woman to pieces but she is so unorganized and nuts that she couldn't find her way out of a paper bag to save her life.

Again... it's the thought that counts, it's the thought that counts, it's the thought that counts. Just so glad it is over!
