Becoming my mother

Reasons I hope to be like my mother:

  • My mom is funny. She is naive when it comes to some really raunchy humour, but we're helping her work through that.

  • She doesn't die her hair some weird, unnatural colour.

  • She cares about her appearance, but not in the plastic-surgery/botox way.

  • Contrary to most mothers, especially mothers who have adult children, she does NOT wear mom jeans:

  • My mom wears hip huggers. And low-rise jeans. And she wears thongs and g-strings. Yowza!

  • She buys her bras and PJs at La Senza.

  • Did I mention she can practically eat anything and not gain weight?

Now, you may be thinking, why do I want to know about Mrs. Mustard's old mom?

I'll show you why:

Mom's wedding

There she is with her three daughters at her wedding to my step-dad. I think my sister Stef may kill me for this one.

Mom, looking stunning at my wedding

Looking stunning at my wedding, waiting for things to get rolling.

That's my mom. She's 47, a grandmother, and still working it. I only hope that I can inherit that quality.


  1. Your mom is HAWT. Way to work it mama.

  2. She's gorgeous!! My mom has the same young, beautiful qualities that your mom does. Gives me something to aspire to also!

  3. You're so right. Every time I see your mom I'm struck by what a beautiful person she is (inside and out).

  4. I've been reading your blog ever since I happened across it a couple of months ago. I really enjoy it. I hope you don't mind, but I've tagged you for the seven weird and random things meme.

  5. It's http://thejuma.wordpress.com

  6. It's nice to see such a positive spin on the mother daughter relationship (and your mom is smokin'!). Usually I'm spending all my time thinking about how I don't want to be like my mom!

  7. Oh, I'm jealous. My mom is grouchy all of the time...and you know what grouchy looks like?

  8. wow...your mom is gorgeous...stunning! i see where you get your beauty! :)

  9. now I see where YOU get the great genes! No fair!
