Operation Gradutation

Anyway, my mother and I had a great time together. I hadn’t seen her since Christmas. In addition to seeing me graduate, this was also an opportunity for her to meet the love of my life. My Guy and a dear friend planned a dinner party for me that took place after the graduation. I made sure all of my dear friends were invited because I really wanted to just spend the evening with the people who mean the most to me since my family is in L.A. I swear there were moments during the evening when it felt like I was celebrating my engagement. This was also a chance for my loved ones to meet and hang out with the love of my life. I wanted my friends to get to know him; I care about their opinions of us. More importantly I wanted my mom to love him. To have My Guy and my mom watch me walk across the stage and show me so much love and support; brings me to tears full of joy.

I have one of the coolest moms on the planet. Everyone enjoyed her just as much as she enjoyed them. One highlight I’ll share: so my mom decides to ask My Guy to dance, and at that point I thought okay she’s being cool. I didn’t recognize the song initially until the first verse begins and the song is “play that funky music”LOL. In case you didn’t know My Guy is white, so it was absolutely hilarious of her to display her humor while bonding with My Guy. The night was just too perfect.

Like most things, they come to an end. My mom left me yesterday afternoon. We went to the spa (my mother’s day gift) and had brunch before I dropped her off at the airport. I hate saying good-bye to her.

Its now time for My Guy to take a trip West bound to meet the rest of the gang…

Congratulations, and what a wonderful story!

My mom hates my guy, and I can say that it really changes the family dynamic when mom doesn't give your man a chance.

I am so glad you and your man had a chance to spend quality time with your friends and your cool mom on such a happy occasion.
