Final update from the Mother of the Bride (aka MOB) THE WEDDING of the year has been and gone.

MOB update #2 – to spray tan or not to spray tan?

Update #2 from Mother of the Bride (aka MOB) My daughter, B2B, informed me a few weeks ago that the big day was less than 100 days away.  It’s now way less than that.  Cue excitement levels rising!! I can’t believe that time is flying by so fast.  She appears organised, so I’m feeling quite relaxed about it all too.  B2B and G2B are…
