Here’s a hint! My son is scheduled to walk down the aisle this week! What does that make me? A MOG or mother-of-the-groom. I look forward to taking the traditional role of a MOG – “Wear beige and sit down.” (Although I’ll be wearing navy.<G>)
In the meantime, a fabulous group of friends put together a MOG party for me! We had a yummy potluck dinner and they named a cocktail after me called “the Leannetini”. One of my friends wrote a poem in my honor! I was given gifts of wine, photo frames, scarves and candles. My son and his fiance were given a piggy bank stuffed with money from my friends! It made me feel so special. Here’s a pic of my friends and me with the bride and groom.
I feel so blessed to be a part of this group of friends. We throw crazy parties for grandmas-to-be, mothers of the bride and those birthdays that end in 0! Every year we take a trip together to a beach or Lake House.
Do you have any friends who like to have crazy parties and celebrations? Do you have some advice for me for my son’s wedding day? I don’t want to cry!
