The Royal Wedding
*Dum dum de dum*
Round 2 (check out wedding round 1) – The big royal wedding of William and Catherine…sigh.
First of all, to get in the royal spirit, please call me Lady Evelyn Garfield-Woodland. It was my royal guest name! Figure out yours…1. Starting with either Lord or Lady (I think you can figure out which one you are) 2. Use one of your grandparents’ names as your first name 3. Your last name is the name of your first pet 4. The name of the street you grew up on is your 2nd last name
Scott refused to use “Scooter Jr.” as his first pet’s name (“It was a hampster!”), but he’s only lying to himself.
Mom and Dad were still in town. They woke up crazy early to watch Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s wedding years ago, so we figured we’d do the same, 2011-style. We DVR’d it and moseyed (yes, that’s how you spell that) out of bed around 8am for the nuptials. We made mimosas with Prosecco [Italian champagne], put on our “jewels” and big [a la Targét] hats, and geared up for our cupcakes for breakfast. Dad and Scott set up shop for brewing some beer, but they’d promised to check out the wedding during their downtime.
We went out to dinner downtown the night before and made sure to pick up cupcakes from Cupcake on King Street after for our royal breakfast. Get ready to drooool people!
These cute flags were created by the creative minds at Cupcake!

And another (had to show the flag)
Vanilla with Chocolate
Wish there were royal weddings more often – yum! I had the blueberry cobbler. C’mon, it was just like having a blueberry muffin (yeah right, tell that to my thighs)! The boys definitely took a break for “breakfast” and watched some of the festivities with us. Beer brewing looked a little like this…
There’s a lot more to it, but the “Ladies” were too busy inside oohing and ahhing to be outside documenting. Another time, “Lords!”
Princess Catherine looked divine, I was more into the extravaganza than I thought I would be, and I still can’t get over the Lady Gaga hat that Princess Beatrice wore. Really? Some hats were completely ridic…I especially liked the ones that looked like paper plate creations that brides to-be wear at the end of their bridal shower (not mine, I stuck with the paper plate bouquet thankyouverymuch). LOVED the hat that looked like a canoe, though. Both fashionable and practical. In severe weather, all she would have needed was a spatula as an oar and she would’ve been all set.
Good times had by all!
p.s. I am on severe detox. My pants insisted. Food, drink, jelly beans, cupcakes, nachos, everything. I’m hungry just talking about it.
p.s.s. Back to work tomorrow…so sad.
