  1. Hey girls, I've read tons of threads on monstrous in-laws, so i feel bad about posting here, but i really want your advice, so decided to go with it. This is the situation: Future FIL gave me and FI a house to live in. It's in the suburbs, so it takes FI 2 hours to commute to work, not to mention 2 separate transit fares each way. We've lived here since September, and his friend also moved in with us because his rent downtown was too expensive. We are getting married in August. FIL should retire, because his job is physically demanding. To make this easier, FI and I agreed
  2. Aww that sounds so hard. I actually felt tears prick my eyes when i was reading it. You sound like you're doing all you can to be supportive to DH and he is sooooo lucky to have you. It would be so easy to lash out and "put her in her place", but you chose the higher route of putting your DH's feelings before yours. I can only hope that the in-laws smarten up and somehow ... well, they're beyond fixing it, but at least somehow make it up to you? I don't know I hope you can feel better though. *hugs*
  3. What is this i keep hearing about choco milk after workouts i've never heard of it before but seems like it's quite popular! MMM... i love ovaltine. if that's good for post-workout drinks, i'm in! The Fit Test... i don't even remember what he makes you do. It felt hard than plyo tho. i loved plyo in P90x. Today i'll be doing the 3rd session (2nd, technically, if you don't count fit test). I'm not looking forward to tmw tho. it's the one that's 80 minutes long!!! i can't even do 40! ><
  4. Did the Fit test today for Insanity. Was thinking, "eh. who needs a fit test." LOL. lucky i did it. it serves as a warning for what is to come. Hoping to be committed enough to do it in 60 days. What about you all? Do you really do it every day? What time do you find works best for you?

  6. omg that's so sad... i almost cried reading it... I don't know what else to say, but that my thoughts are with you and the family. I think it's amazing that you care so much about them and aren't just upset that it's ruined your wedding plans. Stuff like that really does put things into perspective. *HUUUGS*

  8. haha omg that sounds so frustrating. they DO take a long time. What about saying that as much as you'd love to give them invites too, you have already finished them and have no material left, as you alloted just enough to cover the numbers she gave you. She had her chance to invite them. It's not that you randomly want to cut them out. It's her fault that she didn't think of them earlier. It's not your fault at all and I don't think you should keep catering to her constantly-increasing guestlist. Otherwise, give her one final deadline and say, that's it. after that you're not going to do anymo
  9. My FI got me Wii Fit awhile ago and I had fun with it for a few weeks, then it started collecting dust. I figured Wii Active was similar, so when he got that for me, I didn't start playing until this week. I love it!!! As other brides have said, it allows for a continuous work out so your heart rate doesn't go done. I even find myself getting pretty sore from them! Hope I see results soon.

I am sure over the course of his lifetime she has made similar sacrifices. I know that things are probably tight with planning your dream wedding, but IMO your FI shouldn't even think twice about contributing to her trip. This is coming from someone who has pai
  11. Oh noooo!!! Let us know how it went. I hope you were able to share with him how his actions made you feel! You even offered to pay for the cab fare, which i think is so supportive of him not driving and just staying over at his friend's. Yeah, I totally agree with the other ladies. My friend used to always drink 'n drive and he'd say, "don't worry, i'll be ok." So I responded by asking him, "The people who drink and drive, then get into accidents - what do you think they thought when *they* got into the car? That they're gonna get into an accident later on? Clearly, they also thought, o
  12. Hey! You're a Toronto bride too! Aww... that sounds so frustrating. Ugh, yeah, the added costs can make DWs so expensive. How much did he say would be to extend the reception beyond 30 minutes? wtf is a 30 minute reception anyway? I wouldn't even be able to eat a SALAD in 30 minutes. K, so it doesn't include dinner, so for the extra per person cost, you're paying for... reception-location space for 30 minutes?! That doesn't make sense at all... How much are they charging per person anyway? FI and I are getting married at PPC and it's $80US/extra person, but that includes food and... i do
  13. Thanks so much for the review! FI and I are getting married there in August and we want to read every single review possible. You look beautiful in your pics.
  14. I guess the sunny side of this frustration is knowing that when we're there, we get all (or at least most) of their attention. Then it'll be other brides' turn to wait. Hang in there!
  15. AAHHHHH that creeps me out. hahaha.. sorry, not you. just root canals. you don't do pain? i don't even do dentists!!! hang in there!!! Preciousmi811 knows what she's talking about so that's reassuring. phew. Hope you look beautiful on your big weekend.
