The Mother of the Groom/Blue Monday/Aw...Monday/Love is...

Oh My Goodness, Jeremy and Brittany are  going to get married April 30, 2016 and they are going to have a Bronco colors wedding (orange and blue). I have this beautiful classic beaded dress from 2000. I wore it to a Princess House banquet in New Orleans in August 2000. Shirley McNeff is on my left and Doris Hopelian and Shirley Taylor (former USMC) on my right, We had such fun. This pretty evening out dress is still in excellent shape and the navy blue color would be perfect. I will probably have orange shoes! It will be a truly fun experience! Sometime I get boring with navy blues, grays, browns, blacks! Since I am not working I added a few bright colors into my wardrobe. Basically I am going to be wearing leggings and tunic type of shirts. I found one shirt, that is so pretty and is like a piece of abstract art! I will have to share some photos with you soon.
Here is another photo of the dress. This was taken in front of one of the indoor fountains at the Venetian hotel in Las Vegas. It was a brand new hotel and we were blessed to have suites to stay in at very affordable prices because we were with the Princess House convention.
How about a pretty orange Mother of the Groom dress? This one is flirty and fun!
Two piece navy blue Mother of the Groom dress. Decisions, Decisions! I will keep you posted when I decide on my dress for the big day.

Here is a Bronco Wedding cake . I thought it would fit in with the Blue Monday shares. Thanks Sally for hosting this fun day with each one of us.
Two years ago on a quiet Sunday we lost this tiny life. This was a joyful girl. She came into our lives as a rescue. Hannah's old beau Markus had found her at Christmastime in an open field. She would have been a snack for a coyote. But this girl had spunk. She was a tiny hero. She fought a hard battle with cancer and it took her life, but she went peacefully with Hannah holding her close to heart. The times we spent with this sweetheart are forever engraved on my heart. Miss you tiny dancer, Roxanne. A sweet share for Sandee and those who share their Mondays with us too.
Getting ready for the Denver Bronco game getting ready to play the Green Bay Packers. We can divide our time between the football game and the world series. Rooting hard for the guys in blue and white at Kansas City.
Von Miller and the Denver defense! Good luck Broncos!
Kansas City Royals, good luck!

Morning Anne,

Congrats on the Royals winning the World Series! And congrats to Jeremy and Brittany. With a gorgeous navy dress that you already have, I'd be tempted to wear it; it looks so good on you.

A football wedding will be fun.

Thanks for sharing.

Have a Happy Blue Monday!

Hooray for the Royals...their win was long overdue. Love your blue dress. It is absolutely gorgeous. Know you are thrilled about the upcoming nuptials...such a special time. I have to admit I adored the wedding cake. It is a real eye catcher and almost whimsical. The colors are perfect.

What a surprise to have the Royals win! Love the blue dress!

You look stunning in that dress, Anne. It's got classic lines that never go out of fashion.

Aw, sweet lil Roxanne. She was so blessed to be loved by y'all. (And never forgotten!)

Hello Anne, Thank you for commenting when we were in France for the last month. I am trying to catch up with everyone now. I did not bring my computer to France. It is good to be visiting again.

How fun to plan a Bronco wedding with those great colors. Your dress is very pretty and perfect for the wedding. As always I love your photos. The cake is a good choice if that is what the bride and groom to be want. Our grandson picked the Dolphin football colors for his wedding. It was great and they loved how it all turned out. I wish Jeremy much happiness.

We too love that The Royals won this year. We have family in Kansas City that are thrilled.

I know how much we love our pets. How sad when we have to lose them. I am so sorry Anne.

Happy wedding planning.

Linda said...

Wonderful post and beautiful photos! It is so difficult to lose a pet, because we feel as though we have lost a family member. Thank you so much for sharing.

So sorry to hear about your loss! It's so hard to lose our furry friends.

Thanks for sharing the Bronco wedding pictures - looks like a lot of fun!

Thanks for stopping by Driller's Place. Come again any time. Weddings are certainly filled with Aww... moments. And yes, the Royals got it done!

Your dress is quite lovely, but I'm partial to orange, so my favorite dress would have to be the orange one. I'm sure you'll look wonderful in whichever dress you decide to wear.

Your little Roxanne was such a beautiful little girl. I'm sure you gave her a wonderful life during the years she was with you.

I'm doing my best to spoil my little guy as much as I possibly can. The joy he gives me is priceless.

Now it's time for me to head for the kitchen and cook up something tasty for Pogo and me. You have a wonderful evening, hugs, Edna B.

such a happy post.

Such a joy to read a happy post (even though the loss of the little dog wasn't happy, the fact that she was rescued and lived being loved is).

I bet you will look great in whatever dress you wear!
