As I'm sure a lot of you who posted comments/advice to my last post "awkward bridal show," my younger sister is also getting married, about 7-8 months before my FI and I plan on getting hitched. Going back to that very same show, that was earlier this month, the conversation was short and VERY awkward. I hadn't spoken to my mom or my sister since the show. Fast forward to last night, my phone buzzes with a text from my sister asking me if I have been to look at dresses yet....Okkkk, so I told her I went back in January, but haven't had time to do so since then with classes/clinicals/etc. She replies with "Oh, mom took me to the place in town, you know the little one at the four corners." All I said was, "yeah that's where I went too, they are so nice in there." She then procedes to tell me how her experience was at the shop, how helpful all the consultants were, blah blah blah. She then asked me if I had a dress in mind from there that I thought might be "the one".... WTF?? My last name is pretty rare, as in, the only people I know with the same last name are all closely related to me...the only thing I could think was that, innocently enough, when the consultant took down the info for my sister and the dresses she liked, she recognized the name and mentioned that she had helped me before. I didn't pry why she would ask, I just told her I had seen a few I liked but wasn't sure exactly what I wanted... and asked if she had any pics to share of her dresses (bc in the back of my mind I was thinking, OK great, she's going to have on the SAME DRESS)....the 2 pics she sent were not of the same dress I liked, which was a relief. Here's where my mind is spinning a bit..... through the conversation (via text still) she kept asking me when I could come dress shopping with her, would I be able to take her to this shop, that shop, etc. Finally, I caved and said that my spring break is coming up and that I could probably go with her that Saturday bc I don't have clinical. I asked if it was going to be a "family outting" or just a "sister's" day, since I'm her MOH, I thought maybe she was looking for some quality time. Her response was "you know if mom finds out, she'll want to come..." Hmm..... not sure what that means.... so I asked her if she wanted it to be just the two of us, I would come pick her up and we would make a day of it, it's her choice. She replied "as long as you can come, I don't care who else is there." Again...not quite sure what this means. I put a smiley in my text and said "aww" thinking she was just being a little sister....and no more texts. I'm not sure what to make of all this, I know my own relationship with our mom, but I can't tell if my sister is making a cry for help bc mom is being momzilla, or if she is just pestering me to stop being so "selfish" getting my education and not making time for her....(remember, I was never invited to the bridal show, nor to this outting for dress shopping). Thoughts?
