    I want to take the souvenir MIL got DH from her trip and break it in half.  Or burn it in our fireplace.  Instead I threw it on top of the fridge, hoping that it would be too tall for me to see.

    I have spent a majority of my work days, since Saturday, doing online shopping instead of work. I got one of my outfits for e-pics ordered on Saturday and now it's going to be hard not to touch it til Feb

    FI and I exchanged presents last night. He bought me diamond earrings. I think he spent way too much on them and semi want to return them. He was so happy and glowing when he gave them to me too. :( They won't even fit in my ears without me cringing in pain. Who knew there was different guages of posts? I have tiny holes. They are screw back so I won't lose them.

    Been there, Brianna! Take it one day at a time. It really helped me to take a weekend away from wedding planning every now and then. Don't do ONE wedding related thing. Do something fun with FI and your baby. You still have 3 months, you gotta take a step back or you'll never make it without killing someone.

    Brianna - I totally agree with Natalie.

    Although, no matter what I did, I was more excited about the wedding being over and being married than I was about the wedding itself the last couple of months.

    I confess that I wish I hadn't bought 10 Christmas presents for people that we aren't even going to see over the holidays - I started shopping before we made travel plans, and now we'll just be sending gifts with other people to deliver, and I feel like it's wasted money and effort.

    <div>Almost 4 months left in my long engagement and I'm totally to that point.  I no longer watch wedding shows and instead am starting to focus on House Hunters, My first place and property virgins.  I know the wedding will be amazing, but I'm so looking forward to it being here and then moving onto being married and our next big thing - getting out of this apartment.</div>

    I confess that it irritates me that since FI's parents are divorced we have to take more time away from my family during the holidays so we can make it to both of theirs. It wouldn't be that big of a deal but his Dad lives in Houston so that is a 5 hour drive on Christmas day to his Dad's house who was never really a good father to FI until recently. 

    We are doing Christmas Eve with his moms family and spending the night there, leaving at 9 to head for my parents house and then leaving my parents house at 2 to leave for Houston. 

    That makes about 4 hours we get to spend with my family. Not cool.

    I dislike this a lot. My parents are the ones that are divorced and I'm so worried about inconveniencing my ILs when they come into the mix next year. Luckily we aren't doing Christmas with them til FI comes home for R&R. Next year, the logistical scheduling nightmare begins, though... EEEESH!

    Welcome to married life, Brooke! My parents are divorced and we have several places to go. So we can't see both our families in one day. We have decided to spend Thanksgiving with one family(DH or mine), and Christmas with the other. It's all part of being married and making compromises.

    <div>It is definitely not fun trying to figure out a schedule to make everyone happy. I think that my whole thing is that we could go to Houston a LOT later in the day or even the day after Christmas but FI is insisting that we leave at 2 so we can make it to their huge family Christmas dinner down there. Which I get. But I still feel like I am sacrificing a lot of time with my family. I'm sure everything will turn out alright, it has just been frustrating trying to figure everything out!</div>

    I confess I told my mom not to show up to the wedding and I was actually serious about the request. She said it's going to be a disaster because it's my wedding and anything I do is a disaster. Even though I'm the only daughter who actual went to grad school.. Sorry I know I complain about her all the time and I'm sure you guys are tired of hearing about her.

    The only reason I hate hearing about it is because you are going through it still.

    Your wedding will be fabulous and <em>you</em> are not a disaster.  I hope you don't believe her ((HUG)).

    That's the only way we have figured out that we think is "fair" all around. It works for us, and everyone understands. It's better than having to run around like chickens with our heads cut off during the holidays trying to spend time with everyone. Who can really enjoy that? It's more enjoyable for us and everyone around us this way.

    I like Natalie's approach.    I mentioned this on here once before, but I hate it when people shuttle around and try to hit every place on the DAY OF the holiday.

    These people love you and want to spend quality time with you, not be a timed stop on the holiday train.  Alternate on the big events, and choose alternate days to spend REAL quality time with the others.
