Weddings, Part 2

Since the greatest wedding of our time is literally right around the corner (and over the pond...and through the woods to grandmother's house we go), I figure I might as well express my interest in it.


First of all, the dress.  I simply cannot wait to see it.  It will set the trend for the next few years worth of weddings!  Maybe even mine!  Maybe!  Second, just the amount of decoration put into it is going to be fun.  I love decorating anything and everything so I am sure I will start collecting pictures to save "just in case" the second they are available.  To see how everything will be perfectly executed with military precision is going to be awesome to watch and nerve racking at the same time!  What if something goes wrong?  Not that they don't have 100,000 back up plans, but still.

I don't know if many Americans are nearly as excited as they could and should be.  Maybe it's just because this is the culmination of a life long obsession with England all coming together in one grand day that I am a wee bit more excited that most?  Maybe it's because I spent a year there?  Maybe it's because I want to be a princess?  I don't know, but I just don't understand why people don't seem to be interested in it over here. 

I am 99% sure I will be rising before the sun to watch coverage starting at 5:00 a.m.  I have to get in as much of it as I can before work at 9:00.  I will then proceed to wear all black to work because I will be in mourning.  It very well may actually kill me to not see it live.  I also may or may not have big plans to have it stream live from Yahoo! on my computer...just sayin' this is something one shouldn't miss!  I will also be drinking excessive amounts of tea and saying British things like "you alright?" and I am so "gutted" I am missing this and "pip pip cheerio gov'ner".  Okay maybe not the last one but ya never know.

Either way, if you miss it, you're nuts,

Side note:  I am out of control obsessed with Adele's new record, 21.  It's amazing!  And conveniently British!


  1. love u em and your england obsession! I heard on E! news today (reliable source) that we Americans are much more obsessed with the royal wedding than they are over there in England. I happen to have no interest in the royal wedding (don't hate!!!) But I am excited to see what her dress looks like :) Hope you enjoy your early morning girl!

  2. Great read Em! I dont care about the Royal wedding so much but I enjoyed your writing style. I liked your entusiasm mixed with humor. Enjoy getting up so early in the morn!...Oh ya, Suprise! I read your blog because I care. :)

  3. i do have to admit... this morning i considered catching a red eye... alas... i am sitting here... wondering if the air force network has me covered. Meanwhile i listen to sad adele songs, which i too, love.
