The Royal Wedding

Was that a wedding or was that a wedding? Did I get up at 4:00 am, you ask? Oh, please, the age of DVR who in their right mind? My friend Kristi invited me to a "Watch the Royal Wedding at a Decent Hour of the Day" party at 10:30 am today.

Honestly...I haven't been this excited for a while now. Cheesy? Maybe...but seriously, it was so hard not to turn on the tv or get on the internet. I had previously promised not to watch any of it till we were all there together. It was a little like Christmas can hardly stand it to wait, but there's a little peevish part of you that looks out the window at all the other houses that have already had their celebration and you still have yours to look forward to. Oh, is that just me, then?

Anyhoo...the party was grand. Upon entering the house, we each got a tiara to wear. Our plates were loaded up with little sandwiches, fruit, cheese & crackers, and coffee cake. Juice drunk from was like a Girl's Superbowl.

Back and forth chatter about all the hats as people filtered into the church (and just why didn't the wearing of hats catch on in the states?!!), watching all the cars dropping the VIPs at the church, the collective sigh/squeal when we saw the dress, the ceremony, the horse-drawn carriage ride back to the palace, the kiss on the balcony. Just wouldn't have been the same if the men were in the room. This kind of thing needs to be seen with your best girl friends!!

Josie's first royal wedding. I have lots of fun memories watching Diana and Fergie's weddings with my mom and sister. Now I'm watching them with my is good. And of course, what post wouldn't be complete without a picture or two of our little "Princess".

  1. We celebrated the royal wedding all day at school - complete with royal wedding cake & a spot of tea this afternoon. The 2nd graders were working on fractions and had to figure out how to cut the cake into 16 equal sized parts. It was grand. And I used my fake British voice nearly all day long.
