So this is a slight vent, wth, omg moment....
My FI's step niece is getting married next weekend. Previously I had meet her about 4 times (FI and I have been together 3.5 years). A few months ago, I got a telephone call from her (she got my number from her stepdad, FI's brother, after I bought a car from him) and asked me to be a bridesmaid. I felt obligated, since I knew that one day we would be family, and she must be desperate to ask someone she has only met a handful of times. So I agreed, and ended up with $300 worth of watermelon dress, accessories, and shoes.
She tells me her mom is having her bridal shower, and I ask her to keep informed and I'll do what I need to do. I never hear another word about it, and honestly I hate to say, kinda forget about it, and the wedding... We've had 8 weddings this year, and now planning our own ( terrible excuse I know, but I never hear from her.)
At our annual fathers day dinner, I asked her if she would like a bachlorette party, and what she would like to do, and who she would like to invite. She agrees to one, and we plan to have her BM's and mom get together for a night out. I fully take on the responsiblity, because the other two BM's are young and in school. Last night we went out, for dinner and a night of drinks, with me paying for everything for everyone, and we had a blast! I hoped it was everything she wanted, because I felt she deserved a fun night out, and we now for sure will be family soon!
This evening I get on facebook and she post a nice little thank you to me, on her wall declearing Im the best Maid of honor! Ummmm.... huh? We never discussed this, and not that I would say no, but I find it very odd. I'm honored, but i guess Im more shocked because I dont know her well at all and there was no mention before this post on FB. She is also friends with the other two BM's on FB.
I guess I need to come up with a speech also... but I have no idea where to start. Any helpful hints or pointers for me?
