Alas. I'll have to get my fix today and live vicariously through these lucky people at Westminster Abbey. Thankfully, however, my sis-in-law and bro-in-law are hosting a Royal Wedding party this evening and I've been dying to wear something on my head for the event. I found this DIY video and this is what I plan to do this afternoon after I get some work done:
Also, my father-in-law gave us this on Easter:
I wish it were real!
And finally, as a someone who has been married for almost 9 months (I know! So long), I thought it would be appropriate to offer some marriage advice for the royal newlyweds. I'm sure they check this blog and I'm sure my advice will apply to their lives (humor me).
- Take time away together. It's really easy as a newlywed couple with a new home and a new life to forget to take time to go away together for a day or two once in a while. Wills, instead of working on the garden every weekend, take that pretty wife of yours on a weekend getaway (we have a guest room, hint hint).
- Laugh! Everyone should do this. Smile, laugh, watch ridiculous videos online, tease each other. Find humor in the things that frustrate you. Know that you can turn to each other for not only support, but a laugh when you need it.
- Treat each other like royalty. Uh... actually...I think they've got this one down.
You know what... they don't need my advice. They're a lovely couple, they look like they're crazy in love with each other, and I hope they have a long, healthy, love-filled marriage!

(By the way, I've been watching the wedding while I wrote this post, and I have no idea how
Kate Catherine stays so composed and calm all the time. She really is stunning ).
