It’s Okay #71

It’s okay…

…that I’m feeling overwhelmed at all the things happening this week and next.

…that last week I bought two dresses thinking I’d return one of them, but now it looks like I’ll be attending both my niece’s and my nephew’s weddings, so I might as well keep both!

…that our summer won’t have so much empty time to fill up with two trips for weddings!

…that I’m an aunt by blood for the first time – I have nieces and nephews on Dave’s side, but my brother and sister-in-law had a baby girl so now I’m an aunt on my side!

…that I’m not a fan of small talk.

…that both of my kids wore Rutgers shirts for “favorite team” day even though I think their favorite team is the Royals! But they don’t have Royals shirts!

What’s okay with you this week?

Small talk is awkward for sure.
So the bright side is you got 2 new dresses!?
Congrats on being an aunt (again)! How exciting!!!

Small talk - I'll pass.
There's nothing wrong with having your kids sport your alma matter, even if it might not be their *favorite* team. Marcus will forever wear Iowa State and K-State stuff. :)

I am so awful at small talk. I end up saying awkward things and scaring those around me.
