Thank you everyone for the quick response!! That was awesome! I really appreciate the feedback
Ok so to clarify, my mom actually told me that she was going to throw the shower and asked if it was OK if they do it at my house. I told her that sounded great to me!! Save them some money and make it easier on me, yay no traveling!!
As far as the thoughts on being too pushy or ungrateful, I'm glad you all brought that up!! It's funny I never thought of it coming off that way! I actually felt really touched that my mom offered to throw me one and wanted to take some of the responsibility off of her. I guess I need to just let go of the reins and trust that she offered because she truly wants to do it.
After I read all of your responses I told my mom that I was really grateful for her throwing it and that I would back off. She said she didn't care and that she wanted me to be happy with it but I told her whatever she did means a lot and will make me happy. She did ask that I at least give her a guest list so she would know who to invite.
I feel a lot better about it! As weird as it is to let go and not worry about all the details and just let it happen.. I guess this is one of the only times we get to really be the "guest of honor" and I need to learn to sit back and enjoy!
Thank you everyone for opening my eyes up to how I was probably coming off!! And letting me know its ok (and expected!) that I let go of the control on this one!
