Confessions

Recommended Posts

My parents can't afford to pay for both of them. Since they have 2 kids, at least if my sister could come, and my bro in law could stay home with the kids for a couple of days and not have to find someone to watch them or try to afford all 4 of them. Personally, I really want my sister there, but with the way my brother in law has been acting', I don't really care if he's there or not. He told my parents he doesn't approve of us getting married in Jamaica...so IMHO he doesn't have to come.

I'm glad to see I am not the only one out there with things they need to vent about. Sometimes I want to just elope and only have my sister, her boyfriend, my dad and FI's parents come. My mom doesn't seem to have much interest in my wedding and it makes me want to cry when I think about it. She said she is worried because my FI doesn't have a job right now (he was laid off Dec 08 and is still looking for a job) I told her I can't worry about things like that right now (I'm not sure how much longer my job will last either). I told her that is why I am planning a November 2010 WEDDING! 18 F*%(ING MONTHS AWAY! I am hoping and praying things will be better by then. I told her I'm, "29 right now and will be a few months from 30 when we actually get married". I wish my mom could be like the TV mom's who can't wait to talk "details" everytime I pick up the phone to call her...I can't stop picking up the phone to call her to tell her all the lil details each day....I am desperately trying to stop myself from calling her cause I can't stand the way it makes me feel when I call her.....well...I feel a lil better now...Sweet Dreams LADIES!

I'm sorry but this just cracked me up, he doesn't "approve" of YOU getting married in Jamaica? Did your sister marry your father or something? How completely random. LOL

im glad im not the only one with problems with relatives not going to our wedding... FI father told us he cant come because of 'health' reasons ... and i know he is lying.. he has never really been a great support for FI.. so i guess i should have seen it coming.. im glad that his mother and step father will be there though.. the only thing that kills my ass is that his step mother talks about them not being able to go to our wedding as though it was OUR fault!!! its so frustrating!

I must confess that I read all of the DIY posts, get awesome ideas, and then re-read them again and again, but never actually do anything. I'm such a procrastinator. LMAO

Yes, he actually told my parents he doesn't approve of us getting married on an island. Nice right? I think part of this is because we got engaged rather quickly...after a month...but we did go to high school together and reconnected through Classmates.com...and we're 39 & 40, not 20 and it's really none of his business anyway....

But the update is that my sister called the travel agent and told her she is hoping to come and use the trip as an anniversary celebration (her anniversary is 3 days after my wedding)....and that she is trying to figure out what to do with her kids...the travel agent just told me that yesterday. I'm just keeping my mouth shut and my fingers crossed for now.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
