|Oh well, it's only a number!|
I'm pretty excited! My son, Paul, is getting married in just over a week, and that will be here before I know it!!! I adore his fiance, Jen. She's a gal after my own heart ... ducks all in a row, the model of efficiency complete with a bit of an over-the-top love of organization and lists. And you all know how I love organization and lists!
The only thing I can't quite figure out is how she and Paul picked the date. I mean Friday is getting to be a more popular day to get hitched, as the competition for the coolest venues becomes more and more fierce. In order to avoid a waiting list of a couple of years or so at the Jewel Box, they gave the thumbs up to a Friday evening wedding.

But here's the rub ... I know it's only a number, but that number is thirteen . . .
As in Friday the 13th. Yes folks, I know it's hard to believe, but Friday - May13th is the day of the wedding. The day my only child marries a young woman my husband and I are just crazy about. You heard me right - defying convention, and possibly all common sense, they signed up to tie the knot on what is considered the unluckiest day of the year!!!
That being said, gaining your sympathy isn't why I'm writing this post!
I can admit, that although I don't truly believe Friday the 13th is a scourge upon us, it makes me a little nervous. I sort of think of it as the one day of the year Murphy's Law is in full force . . . "Anything that can go wrong will go wrong"!
As Mother of the Groom, we all know I'm suppose to look fantastic. And we also know that I'm in direct competition with the Mother of the Bride ... a distict disadvantage for me due to the fact that the bride is way more important than the groom! Therefore, the M-of-the-B is in an elevated position right from the get-go.
PLEASE TAKE THIS POLL!
So let's get down to it, people! I'm going to post a photo of what the M-of-the-B is wearing and another of what I've chosen, and you won't know which is which. They are completely different - like day and night, hot and cold, boys and girls. I'm convinced that the direction I decided to go is the one that's right for me, my own personal style . . . . . . . well, almost convinced!
Please take a sec and vote for the outfit you think is right for me. You'll have to look past the young, tall skinny models and think of a not so young, 5'4" semi-slender woman. But I know you can do it!
And what if the vote doesn't go my way? Well, I've still got a week to re-evalute and SHOP!
Which Style for Jill?
