So I just spent like 30 minutes picking out some dip trays and making a menu for a surprise party we are throwing MIL on the 26th. It's being given by DH and I, BIL, and FIL. FIL invited about 15 of their friends. So since it's a surprise *I* have to take MIL out of the house to go shopping, so I figured we would just order some trays from Wegmans and have one of the guys pick it up and put it out. It's not like we can cook anything.
So I just heard from DH that FIL and BIL are looking into hoagie trays. Jesus H Christ, we're having 15 people over in the evening for a party and they just want some hoagies. Nothing else. I picked out a Southwestern Dip tray, Spinach dip, a veggie tray, cold shrimp, pinwheels (wraps), and a CAKE if all of us chip in like $50 each. But they (BIL & FIL) want hoagies.
As much as I complain about MIL, she's a sweet lady and threw me the nicest shower at her house with fancy catering. The cake was a 2-tier and I know she spent big money on it. She does so much for family birthdays and she's gotten jipped for 60 yrs having her birthday on xmas day.
Am I being unreasonable? Should I just go with the flow on this or plead my case? They probably already think I'm a biitch for trying to run this thing, but I'm an events manager for christss sake!
Someone talk me down off a ledge...
