Marriage Advice For Wills & Kate, And A DIY Headpiece Project

I'm sitting on my couch watching the Royal Wedding (I DVRed it... I love the grandeur of it all, just not the hour it all started here in the States or all the commercials!) and I'm in love love love love love with all the hats and headpieces. Why aren't we this classy here in America? What I would have given to look out at a sea of big-brimmed hats and feather-adorned headpieces at our wedding...sigh.

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:

Clever, right??

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 ).
