"It's OK" - Family Edition!

Ahhh family....they are crazy as can be but you just have to love them! And seeing as I will be surrounded by my husband's side of the family for the next 3 days for his niece's sweet 16, here are some strange feelings/ concerns I always seem to have before seeing them again!

Its Ok Thursdays

It's OK....
...that 3 consecutive days with family feels like it more than makes up for 6 months apart from them!
... to forget that you have only known your in-laws for 5 years because it feels like you have grown up with them your entire life!
... to panic before any major family function and want to lose 5 pounds in a week because there is this strange need to still impress them
... to feel really odd about going to a sweet 16 and being one of the adults. Can you still drop it like it's hot?
... to be amazed at how much kids have changed since I was 16, only 7 years ago!
... to just be happy that I am actually going to a party, even if that means I am surrounded by family and teenagers the whole time! My schedule has been so filled with work/ obligations that I haven't danced the night away in a really long time!
... that I have been forcing my hubster to become my personal trainer so I can lose those 5 pounds I mentioned and tell him he is fired if it doesn't happen (just kidding about the last part!)
... to think I have the best sisters-brother-in-law ever!
Some photos of this side of my family at our wedding....

Okay, so now that I have filled you in on what a complete dork I am and how desperately I need a night out, I hope you still come back tomorrow to read about my gas situation! Seriously, ha!

love always,

Love your picturs of your wedding, so pretty!!! I especially can relate to wanting to look good even though they have seen me at my best and worst. Hope your cousins sweet 16 is amazing and fun!

Found you through Ryan's blog! Isn't it weird when you're suddenly an adult? I have moments like that all the time and it's so weird!
