Moms, use Facebook to checkout potential boyfriends

If you didn’t know, now you know!

With all the talk of potential employers wanting access to possible employee’s social media sites, I’d say, “I’ve got this game down!”  O.K….O.K… not complete access, but if, I need to calm my mother’s intuition, I’d do my own social media background check.  Wanna know how?  Let me tell you.

Me: Who you’re going to take on prom?

Daughter:I’m thinking about going with Jack. (Name changed to protect the guilty innocent)

Me: Jack who?

Daughter: Jack UpthaHill

Me: O.K

(begins background check)

Background Check Steps:

1.Search Jack UpthaHill on FaceBook

2.More than likely you and Jack, have your daughter in common as friends.

Note: Jack’s name may be slightly different than what your daughter told you.  It may be Jack SwaggerlikeChrisBrown UpthaHill. I know the Chris Brown in the middle name may scare the hell out of you and it’ll scare the hell out of me too, but we’ll have to deal with that later.

3.Select name.(crossing fingers that no privacy settings are on Jack’s account)

4.Lurk, Mama, Lurk!  Check him out!  Wait!!!!DO NOT! I repeat, DO NOT! Request Jack to become your friend.  You will blow your cover and every other mother hip on game!  However, feel free to check his photos, status updates etc.  Hey, he left them open without any privacy protection 😉 so, work the system, Ma!

There you have it in 4 easy steps.

Disclosure: This Facebook background check does not replace the actual meeting and stare down of the potential boyfriend.  This is only to give you a feel of who your dealing with.  Oh, and if you’re daughter or son has abandoned Facebook for Twitter?  You’ve got more work to do!

Headline: Promzilla gets a beat down

 

 

 

 

 

I think we’re all familiar with the television show Bridezilla, the daughter, sister or BFF that we’d love to hate on her special day.  I couldn’t help but wonder was Bridezilla a Promzilla in her teen years. If, one of my daughters, friends or reletaives everrrrr……everrrrrr……everrrrrr conducted them-self like this, I’d be M.I.A!!!!  I don’t like to take part in drama, but I  admit I love watching it on t.v.

Although my oldest hasn’t shown any Promzilla tendacies, just a little warning for my youngest because she’s a drama queen.

If you everrrrrr…..everrrrr……everrrrrr attempt to conduct your-self in this manner,  our neighborhood headlines would read….

 

 Promzilla gets a beat down 😉

To rent or not to rent a prom dress.

 

 

Prom day will be here before we know it and in order to beat the madness we’ve began our prom dress hunt.  I’ve heard so many stories about expensive prom dresses that have only been worn once, so, when we began to consider looking for dresses for my daughter, I thought maybe renting a prom dress would be the way to go.

However, as I began to search our rental options…..I kept coming up short.  When I thought that I finally found a place to rent a prom dress, they didn’t have an actual location. So in order to rent the dress, you pick one online and they would mail it to you.  I wasn’t thrilled about that idea, as well as, the style options were limited.  Sometimes trying to save money will have you spending more money in the end.  Instead of renting we set a budget and we found a beautiful dress for my daughter’s prom.

Although we didn’t decide on renting, I do believe “Dress Rentals” is a market that has been overlooked and/or not easily accessible.  How many dresses do you have in your closet that you’ve purchased for a special occasion and haven’t worn again?  Now let’s compare that to our husband.  Men are able to rent attire for special occasions and we end up with wedding, bridesmaid, prom dresses and any other special occasional dress in our closet that we’ll never wear again.

Now, it’s time to knock of the next prom item off our list!
