Well, we couldn't NOT watch it LIVE!

Yes, we spent most of the night watching the Royal Wedding. All four of us... Lowell, Kumeu, Hazelnut, and me.

Yes, we indulged in tea and homemade scones (slathered with cream cheese and jam) while witnessing history in the making.

Yes, Kumeu actually WATCHED. (For realsies. This is him actually watching...)

And yes, Kumeu shared the scones and tea.

Thoughts on the Royal Wedding:

- Kate was classy and beautiful (as per the norm), and I may or may not have shed a tear when I saw her (let's blame the pregnancy hormones shall we?).

- It was highly amusing when Prince Harry provided the only non-proper moment of the occasion by whispering something to William and having a good little chuckle (seemingly to himself) as Kate was walking down the aisle. That boy likes to have fun!

- Hot Harry and Pippa (Kate's sis who looked better than most BRIDES) would make an incredibly handsome couple... I sure hope THEY hook up!
- I loved watching the guests arrive, and I love love LOVED all the hats (well, most of the hats). I sooooo wish we could pull those off around here. Some of those little numbers could really do a great job of hiding my current pregnancy-induced forehead acne situation. Like the blue one...

Or better yet, the one that Princess Beatrice is donning...

The experience was TOTALLY worthwhile... although it DID make for an interesting 6:15am spin class (taught by Lowell)!

Now excuse me while I go have a little snooze...

I am very impressed Julie and Lowell!!! Did you make Lowell stay up or was he interested? I think that Princess Beatrice's hat is CRAZY!

I should have gotten out of bed to watch some of it, I was wide awake, not able to sleep. Oh well. Those hats are bizzare. The blue one looks like a canoe and I don't understand the Beatrice one.

Kylie- He was actually interested! I'm a very lucky woman:)
A Brit on CBC described Princess Beatrice's hat as looking like antlers. He said that had she been in Canada, she would've been shot. Hehe:)

JAJ- I don't even know how they keep those canoe-type hats on their heads!

Favorite part: the grouchy girl in the royal kiss photo at the top.
