Tuesday, October 27, 2015 – Mum’s The Word or Magnolia Mum Memories

I was reading on Yahoo how homecoming mum’s for high schools have become outrageous. Rather than the old fashioned single chrysanthemum with a few streamers in the schools’ colors, mums today look like someone won the Kentucky Derby or they are wearing an entire funeral spray of flowers.

But during my entire four years of high school I never received a mum. So this is for all of the girls who never had one either. I distinctly remember (as I do most everything) sitting in the band in the stands as a senior at Magnolia High School. I do not remember who the Bulldogs played or the score. All I remember is I was the only girl in the band who did not have a mum.

Several years ago I shared this life scarring story with niece#2. She and one of her BFF’s were in Michael’s one day and they purchased me a mum.   Thank you Deann and Sandy.

Here is my mum.

Mum (450x800)

Please know I plan to wear it to my 50th high school reunion.

And the to the rest of you mummies out there – I hope you get a bee in your chrysanthemums.

    I LOVE this post! In MISD, I saw kindergarten girls getting mums! Unbelievable!

    I go to New York City tomorrow with Reg & Susie to see my daughter. I haven’t seen her in 3 years!!! I am going to cry like a big baby when I hug her! She is amazing!

    Will call you when I get back. Have missed talking to you, friend!
