Mother's Day - Jinxes... and the Mob!

I hope all the beautiful mothers and mothers to be had a very Happy Mother's Day this past weekend!

I had a lovely Mother's Day! I first went to visit with my soon-to-be in laws at my aunt's house which was very nice. I always love hanging out with them. Then I went to my sister's place to celebrate my mom with my family. We BBQ'd and kind of just relaxed, which was very nice! I am a BIG fan of relaxing ;)

Later on in the evening we all watched the Ranger's Game.  And when I say "we all" watched the game, I mean mostly everyone watched while I played on my phone and went through my pictures for this blog post. I notice that with some sports that although I do try to watch them, I end up staring at the screen zoning out thinking about other things. Am I alone here? I did once in a while yell out "go team!" or "go sports!" just to be sassy. Apparently my sister was also zoned out, because during the game she picked her head up and asked everyone "hey guys just wondering do you believe in jinxes and all that?" Then about 5 minutes later The Capitals scored a goal and my brother (a die hard Ranger's fan as you can see from his clothes in the picture below) gave her the death stare. Whoops. I'm thinking we may not be invited to watch Game 7 tonight...

As some of you already know, I am getting married in October. My mom is super excited, as I am the first in the family to tie the ole knot. One particular day she came up to me and said...

Mom: "Jennifer, do you know what the acronym for Mother of the Bride is??"

Me: "Yes. M.O.B."

Mom: "It's M.O.B.! Mob! Get it?? Watch out for the Mob, get it? I'm the mob! Don't mess with me!"

Then she proceeded to crack up and starting referring to herself as "JMOB". JMOB = Jody, Mother of the Bride. She has been using it as her text signature too, because that's what the mob would do obviously. It's actually pretty cute though I will admit. So as part of her Mother's Day gift, I had a shirt specially made from ETSY for her...

Now she has a little more street 'cred.

Hope everyone had a very happy Mother's Day!
