The FI and I had Mum’s dad’s (Papa) family Christmas party this past Sunday, the first time we’ve been to an extended family gathering since our engagement. If you’ll remember (did I even mention it?), we were at FMIL MJ’s house for a small family dinner then up to Dad’s for dessert with another small group for Thanksgiving.
We entered the clubhouse at Nana and Papa’s condo complex to something that sounded a lot like “AAAAAAAAAAAAIIIEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!! LEMME SEE LEMME SEE OMG CONGRATULATIONS AAAAAAAAAIIIIIEEEEE!!!!!” which, to be honest, was lots of fun and completely overwhelming. After the FI melted into the background (“to get to know one of my groomsmen better” he later said), I showed off my ring and talked about our plans so far, which was definitely fun. It’s nice to have a new audience to gush to every once in a while, you know?
Overall, a good time was had by all.
You might be wondering where the title of this post comes in to this story. It comes in right about here. I’ve known for a while that Cousin/BM E is a reader of this lil blog (and a Weddingbee stalker, which is totally fine by me), and she told me that her mom, Auntie C, is also a reader. Cool, right? I also found out that Cousin/BM E’s dad (and Auntie C’s husband), Uncle T is a reader!
It’s official: I have the coolest Godparents ever. You’re so jealous.
