Weekend Getaway

I'm sorry, I have been MIA. My poor little blog has been neglected and after an email letting me know this I am ready and raring to go!

My FH and I drove north on Friday to spend the weekend (and Monday and Tuesday) with my future in-laws. It was a WONDERFUL weekend! I love going to see his parents and his sisters' family. We haven't seen the family since Christmas due to some unexpected events (think pipe freezing a couple weeks ago and dumping over 400 gallons of water into the basement unexpected) so we drove up there to help where needed. Most of the items on the list were crossed off by the time we had to head back home. We all went to his sister, T's, house Saturday and Sunday night for dinner which was delicious! It was a great weekend! Plus, his mom and I sat down and completed their list of people to invite! Now the pressure is on, Rich and I have to finish our list of people to invite and the guest list will be completely done!!! YAY!!!!

I feel so fortunate and blessed because my in-laws are the greatest! Even before the FH and I were engaged they treated me like family. In fact, the running joke was that if Rich did anything to screw up the relationship his dad was going to disown him and adopt me. Rich's niece (who is 5 years old) would call me 'Aunt Laura' and call him 'Rich', which I still tease him about to this day.

I can't express how much I love them and appreciate everything they do! I hear horror stories about in-laws and I just sit there and smile because deep down inside I know that God must really love me to have given me such a great family to marry into! I thank God every day for blessing me with such great families!

And time to brag........

How cute are my niece and nephew?!? Oh and Awe away!

And later I will be back to wedding planning........

I completely agree with you about having amazing in laws. Everytime I mention that I am going to visit my future in laws to my coworkers they make some awful sound and say they hope it goes ok. My in-laws are incredible...and my fiance's parents are divorced so I have four different familes on his side and everyone is great. They are loving, caring, funny, understanding, NEVER crazy or mean. It is so nice to know that I am marrying into such a great family.

I feel so lucky to be marrying into a family that I adore. I can't imagine how hard it would be otherwise! :)
