Eureka... fingers crossed!

   I won't say I've been too busy to blog because I was searching day and night for the perfect MOG (Mother of the Groom) dress. That would be exaggerating. The truth is, I've got a part-time job that requires blogging (and other editing duties) that often leaves me with little motivation to post my own stuff.  Plus, it's ragweed season which is always the low energy point of my year, anyway.
   BUT, I am pleased to announce that I have found what I hope to be THE dress for my son's upcoming nuptials on Oct. 25 and it is this...
providing it fits, that is.  I ordered it by mail today from Dillards. It's got the flow-y Bohemian feel my future daughter-in-law is going for without screaming: "You're too OLD for Boho!"  I had purchased another navy blue cocktail number (below) that was kind of early "Mad Men" retro but it didn't seem to fit the overall vibe, as the kids say, of the rest of the bridal party.

     Still, that one fits like a glove so I have a back-up if the new one doesn't.  It's a process, people!
    Ahhhh-CHOOO!

My congratulations for you. How quick our children grow up! Only yesterday we gave them the tips on writing a college essay and now they are getting married. This is the most sad and the most happy moment in mothers's lives.

I'll be back after these messages

Boy, I thought I'd never see the old blog again after the whirlwind of life I've had - and am still having - this fall.  Thanks for not giving up on me.
First, the wedding in late October came off with only one hitch. (Don't get me started on over-extended wedding planners.) I ended up cobbling an outfit together from Chico's in taupe (my spin on the mother-of-the-groom mandate: Wear beige and keep your mouth shut), threw on a bunch of pearls and an autumnal pashmina, and did my own hair. Boom! Done. The beautiful Sunday evening wedding in the country culminated a week-long string of activities I have come to call Burning Man East due to the predominance of bonfires at various celebrations. Big fun, big exhaustion.
Three days after the newlyweds returned to Brooklyn, my son summoned the hubs to Game 5 of the World Series in Queens (in which the home team was playing the Mets.) The kid flew his old man to NYC,  bought tickets for themselves and two others, and put him u…

Sabi: Helping your medicine cabinet look hip

I've always said that the companies who figure out how to make aging cool will win baby boomers' hearts in the end (or, better yet, a decade or two before the end.) The stakes are high. There are 78 million of us and gazillions of dollars to be made on our inevitable decline. Enter Sabi. With a mission "....to create products that are intuitively and beautifully designed in order to infuse life’s daily rituals with delight," Sabi boasts that their products "marry superb functionality, simplicity, and aesthetics to make the most mundane to-dos – from taking your daily vitamins to taking out the trash – more enjoyable." I received this bevy of review samples in the mail yesterday: pill folio (aka: 'pill organizer'), dispenser, chopper, crusher and holster. I have to admit, I like the look - sleek, simple and utilitarian....although two of my friends have said they'd need 3 pill folios to hold all their supplements. (Sigh.) Still, I give it two…

Gray hair: A luxury anyone can afford.

I got one of those back-handed compliments on my gray hair from a stranger today: "I wish I could do it. But, I'm afraid of looking old....oh, gawd....but YOURS looks great... really!!" 
    No harm, no foul. It's happened before.
    Charla Krupp, author of "How Not to Look Old," once said, "it's such a luxury to be able to go gray. Because it is an aging look, and it means that you don't care about people knowing your age." 
    She was probably right. Thankfully, I've never been shy about stating my age - it's 56, for the record - or asking others their number, especially when playing 'Who do you know?' The gentler, albeit sneakier, way is asking the year they graduated high school, but sometimes I forget and just blurt it out, often taking people aback.
      But, does it bother me? The looking older part, I mean?
      No. But, admittedly, I'm married. I'm not in the meat market, the job market, or any othe…
