in keeping with the bridal theme, i thought i'd blog my adventures in bridal showers this weekend.
it was a bridal shower for -- okay, now follow the dots, because this is tricky -- my husband's sister's husband's brother's fiance. or, if you prefer, the fiance of my husband's brother-in-law's brother.
the slightly wacky thing about this is that my husband's in-laws have their own gravitational pull. they expect us to celebrate holidays with them (like- not even necessarily the major ones, but things like Father's Day), which is kind of odd because that would mean that we'd be spending it with neither of our families. but anyway, it's nice to be that loved.
so yeah- bridal shower. lots of oohing and aahing over towels and a bride that clearly didn't want to be the center of attention.
i understand that showers, many times, are beyond the control of the bride. they are much more about the family. so i have a lot of sympathy for those brides that sit there, red-faced over the nighties and the implications of the honeymoon.
but man. they may be the most boring, most time-wasting activities ever.
So many books...
