MOG Dress

in 6 weeks i'm going to be a MOG! 

"mother of graduate"

{an 8th grade graduate}.

isn't the MOG suppose to purchase a pretty dress for the occasion?

different  MOG.

are you sure? 
cause i think this MOG needs to wear one of these lovelies to the celebration.  

 what do you think?

all dresses available at

speaking of dresses and noah~ when my almost-8th-grade-graduate was 5 he declared that when he grew up he was going to marry me. he said i was going to wear a green polka-dot dress to the wedding.  he said we would have chocolate chip cake and dance to "how sweet it is."

he knows how to tug on this mama's heart strings...
tugs on them, gives the look, and i'm wrapped around his almost-in-high-school finger.

a few years ago he took back my ring-pop and broke off our engagement. 

it was fun while it lasted. 

so i was thinking maybe he'd get a kick out of his MOG wearing this to his graduation? 

or maybe the red one, i really like the red one.

I love these! Even better is the story though, I think green polka dots are great for sentimental value!

But I love the red too!

Those are so super cute! I think I need a dress for being the WOG (wife of the groom) in two weeks . . . ;)

LOVE the red one. Or the floral. You would rock the floral! (But you always look gorgeous, so I doubt you can go wrong with any of those!)

you'd be beautiful in a paper bag.

I like the very last one on the left :-)

and you HAVE to wear a polka dot dress for the wedding. you really do.

oh sweet it is!

You are too cute! I love all your MOG choices. The red ones are especially cute!! You will be a beautiful, proud mama! :)

The top red one, right? It's so perfect. You have to get that one. And yes, you're required to buy a new dress for graduation. Because that way, even when you're crying (while trying REALLY hard not to cry) you'll still look cute.

What a precious story. Yes you need the polka dot green dress for the graduation. No question about it. Any excuse to get dressed up is a-ok in my book.

That is such a sweet story! The green polka dot dress would be perfect! Congratulations to your soon-to-be graduate! :)

shoot! i saw the thumbnail of this post and was coming over to enthusiastically say the red one would be amazing on you. but now i'm confused. the green polkas is too cute a story. maybe you should save that, though. and i love the springy floral too! it's just too hard.

The red has my vote - gorg!!
But, really, you could rock any of them.

Does kindergarten graduation count as well? Because now I want a MOG dress too! That red one would look fabulous on you. Very, very fun.

What IS it about a son that just melts a mama's heart?
