I dont know what I should do!
I need those that specialize in etiquette to help me out!
My distant cousin who I grew up with but we really arnt very close, we dont talk everyday and we dont really hang out much. She is more of just a friend and less of a relative ya know? But we are blood related. I am closer to her husband than her, but thats because he worked with me a long time.
Anywhoo she is having another baby her first girl, she already has two boys. Her sister who is also my actual cousin works at the gas station I go to sometimes and we always catch up when I go in there. She told me how Jen was so worried because she doesn't have any girl stuff and she is just so paranoid about getting the things she needs. I was all, "aww....", then Lees told me about her shower and asked if I was going.
With as much attiude as I could cop I jokingly said, "Pfft, I wasn't invited."... She laughed/gasped and said it was Bridges fault that she was "planning" the party for Jen and has done a terrible job and hasn't even sent out most of the invites yet. Lees told me it was next saturday and that I was invited, even if I dont get invited told me where it was blah blah, although now that im writing this I was not ever informed of a time....hmm....
So I found myself at old Navy a day later and saw the cutest little girls outfit. I knew Jen would love it because she is rumored to actually give birth on Valentines day and this was just pink with hearts all over. Such a sweet little outfit. I ended up dropping about $50 dollars on this outfit complete with Shirt, stockings, shoes, socks and a little hat.
When I got home I thought about just dropping it off with a congratulations. I mean, baby showers are painful enough when they go off perfectly...to be forewarned its a trainwreck though? Eeek. I decided against it.
Today I checked my notifications for FB and see that my neighbor invited me to celebrate her little boys first birthday. Shit!!! Same day.
Two parties, same day....
What do I do?
