My mom took me out for lunch and a little shopping spree for my bridal shower because she didn't want to just pick up dishes or house items from our wedding registry.
We had fun!
I ended up getting 2 shirts and 4 dresses, including one I can wear to the rehearsal dinner. I was literally blown away by her generosity (She tried to buy me more at one point and I told her that we were fine with what we had already purchased!)
Besides the happy shopping... We went out to lunch to chat and catch up on life... I had to re-explain how and why we are paying for the rehearsal dinner... and of course I had to go over the whole "why i'm marrying SCB again... and not my old boyfriend" speech.... Its safe to say, somethings never change... And then she dropped a bomb on me in the car on the way home.
She apparently ran a background check on my fiance... and had her boyfriend run a separate one too. That I just don't know what to do with... It seems like every day I'm with her I have to convince her why i'm happy... and then she believes me and we celebrate it up... and then the next time I see her I start from square one again...
Maybe things will get better after the wedding?
