Firsts and Lasts

With Thanksgiving being only 1 week away, I'm already thinking about what I'm thankful for.

At the same time, I'm enjoying the fact that this will be the first (and last!!) Thanksgiving that we'll be spending with our families as an engaged couple! (Last year, Mike's nephew asked his mom what I was to him since Mike is his uncle, she kindly replied that I am a friend to everyone in their family, sweet huh?!) As happy as I am that we're finally engaged, I'm even happier that at this time next year, we'll be getting ready to spend our first Thanksgiving with our families as husband and wife. :) And I will be a new auntie to 2 teenage boys, 3 teenage girls and 2 adorable little boys, not to mention that I will have gained 3 sisters in law and 2 brothers in law.

With so many things that we've been doing I get a little rush in knowing that we're no longer doing them as boyfriend/girlfriend and I'm even happier knowing that in about 6 months time, everything will be done as hubby and wifey. :)

Is being engaged making you feel little bursts of excitement and happiness all the time too? What's your favorite part of the holiday season?

It's great that his family is so welcoming of you! For us, it'll be our first time not spending the holidays apart, and also first and last as an engaged couple. I'm a little nervous about doing Christmas with his family, but mostly just excited about starting this new stage of our lives.

Being engaged is definitely making me giddy with excitement!

I love my honey's family and they are so loving and accepting of me. We don't spend Thanksgiving together because he always goes up north to be with his family while I stay here with mine. But next year, we will begin alternating the holidays at the family's locations. Honestly, not to come across in a bad way, but I am sad that we will have to start choosing between the family's each year for the this holiday season is bittersweet as one of the last ones I know I will be with my entire family.

@ Katerina - My first Christmas with FI's family was so much fun and I had so many laughs! I bet you will have a blast!

@ Born to be Mrs. Beever - We're pretty lucky that we're both from the same area and most of our family is pretty close (geographically). :) I'm sure you guys will figure out a way to make it work.
