I have decided that Dan and I are going to throw ourselves an engagement party. There are two reasons....1. No one else is going to do it for us and 2. My dads side of the family has not met Dan's family at all. I REALLY feel that they need to know each other before we get to the wedding! So here is the problem....My mom is giving me crap about it. She doesn't want to go because my father is going to be there. She dosen't think that we can throw our own engagement party. She wants to know the date and time right now even though I have not planned anything about it besides its going to be in the end of September and we going to be at my brothers.
UGH! Am I wrong in thinking that this is a good idea?! I am pretty sure that it would be a good excuse for all of us together. And my brother is super excited that he gets to cook and we are going to pay for the food. It really feels like every step of the way ( and how few steps I have taken) my mom likes to make me crazy!!! Oh and its not like I am asking for gifts or anything, if they want to contribute they can bring some food or drink (another thing she was complaining about)
Thanks I feel a little better :-)
