    Let me preface this by saying a few things: I am the happiest I have ever been in my life, and I am so lucky to have such a wonderful family and friends. Iam finally at a point in my life where I really can't complain about too much- finally!

    Some may know that I am not officially engaged yet, but FF and I live together and I know that a ring is coming in the next few weeks or so.

    A few weeks ago, FF's brother got engaged sort of out of the blue. He and his FI have been together for about a year and a half, but we had no inclination that it would happen this soon. She's great and I am very happy for them. The thing is (I know I sound like a brat), FBIL somehow found my posts on BDW and saw that we were planning a DW and mentioned it to FF's mother. I had said all along that we were planning for November 2008. FBIL's engagement sort of caused FF and I to re-evaluate what type of wedidng we'd like to have, for many reasons. SO, FBIL now tells us that he's getting married in November 2008 in Michigan, where his FI is from. They live in Florida and all of his family (us) are in Massachusetts. I don't konw what to think about this. Even my mother said, "sounds like he's purposely trying to screw things up for you." My mother never thinks the worst so that sort of surprised me, but that's how I'm feeling. I'm to the point where when we finally get engaged we'll have to fit our wedding in somewhere.... Oh and he said if November doesn't work for them, it will be Spring of 2009- our alternative time!

    I know I don't have a right to complain, and I haven't to anyone other than my mother and FF, but I'm pissed! I'd like to think that it's a coincidence, but I know he's found my posts on BDW so he knows what we were planning. I really hope that this isn't the case, but it really seems to be. I'm 30 years old and I have been looking forward to this time in my life forever.

    Ah... I feel a little better now that I've got that all out....

      Oh and I will probably remove this post soon because who knows who will be reading it!

          You can bet that as soon as that ring is on my finger, we're putting a deposit down and there's no changing it!

            Kate, that is just wrong. I hate reading your posts about this, b/c it does seem so obvious they knew what you were planning. Glad getting it out makes you feel better! That's what we are here for!
