Obsession: Celebrating with M&Ms

My husband's grandmother, fondly known as mommom, turned 100 on Christmas day. This woman is a powerhouse! Over the last 10 years, she has traveled to France (multiple times), Brazil, and Chicago. She's the first to laugh at a joke, to line up for a party, and to weave an interesting tale. Quite frankly, I wish she was my direct bloodline; she's a real keeper.

Now that she's slowing down a bit and seems to want for nothing, what do you buy a 100 year old woman? The answer's easy: M&Ms, of course!
To celebrate the day, the family threw a party at a local seafood joint and topped off each place setting with our very own mommom M&Ms. Pick the colors, photos, and sayings to celebrate a special day (or, perhaps, this Valentine's Day) in your very own personalized way. Details:

About Mod City Mom

After becoming mothers, sisters Sarah Romine and Leah Weyandt wanted to marry the activities and interests that they experienced before motherhood with their new found lives with children. This was not always an easy task—traveling to obscure places, shopping at off-beat boutiques, and sipping lazy-afternoon cocktails doesn't always fit neatly with parenthood. Stemming from their frustration, they meticulously searched, and continue to search, for activities, establishments, and entertainment that they take pleasure in and their families benefit from. The result? Mod City Mom.

About Sarah

Sarah is a passionate cook, fashionista, writer, actor, and mother. Like all actors, she ended up working at many-a-restaurant to make ends meet and shopping at countless bargain boutiques to maintain her sense of personal style. Her culinary journey, love affair with fashion, and desire to remain true to herself after becoming a mother are the inspirations for this site. Sarah lives with her husband and two sons in Chicago.

About Leah

A polymath wannabe, Leah loves books, films, music, cooking, and travel. After co-starting a writing and editing shop in 2002, Leah has spent her spare time frequenting her favorite cities, hangouts, and haunts. Her obsession with finding the new, innovative, and quirky is the impetus behind this site. Leah lives with her two sons and husband in North San Diego County.
