Mother of the Bride…


Since this is about My Favorite Things…I simply had to share this.  Wedding dress shopping is a Rite of Passage for the mother of the bride (MOTB)….Something we mothers of daughters look forward to from the instant of their birth (oh, yes, we do!)

 

"Isn't she lovely..." (thank you Stevie Wonder"

“Isn’t she lovely…” (thank you Stevie Wonder”)

I think I’ve tagged just about every (positive) emotion there is…and I ran the gamut! At the end of the day I was exhausted, but not as tired as she was after trying on gown after gown…and all of them are so heavy. She went home and took a nap…I went home and downloaded all the pictures I’d taken…and happily re-lived every moment as I looked at each of them (something like 75 total….yes, I did go overboard…and I’m glad!)  ;o)

Happy MOTB

Dum Dum da Dum


I’m so excited!  My Lovely Daughter (MLD) announced her engagement last Saturday.  I know she doesn’t want to make a big thing about it…but I, in my role as Mother of the Bride (MoB), am probably three times more excited about planning her wedding than anyone else, including my daughter and her groom.  They want a wedding without a lot of fanfare, so it’ll probably be fairly small.  However, I (on the other hand) am free to plan a virtual wedding that could eclipse the British (sadly) marriage of Diana and Charles.  I promise not to go totally wild……maybe just moderately wild.

As I travel through the ether to find only the most perfect things for her virtual wedding, even (perhaps) some that will actually be included in her planning, I’ll share it all with you, Dear Reader,  a few of…My Favorite Things.

PS ~~ I’ve included acronyms for my daughter and me, but I will probably continue spell them out because I like the way they look as I type them…  ;o)
