I hadn't planned on getting up early to watch THE wedding. But since my poor husband spent an uncomfortable night with tummy issues, we were both up well before the event started and decided to go ahead and tune in.
I may be one of the few women my age who did NOT watch the marriage of Charles and Diana so I really can't compare the two, but I enjoyed this stately occasion with all its pomp and pageantry.
Plenty of grinning going on today -- I particularly liked Catherine's as Wills wrestled the ring on her finger.
And to think, it only took her seven years! No longer can we call her "Waity Katey"
Oh, and that reminds me... why is she called Kate with a "K" when her proper name begins with a "C"? Shouldn't it be Cate?
I was not all that impressed by the dress. Call me a philistine, but it just seemed a little blah after all the build up. Classic but excessively understated, but I just figured it fit Kate-with-a-K's simple, relaxed style. Then I saw this photo:
The entire affair was reminiscent of something out of a musical or movie, replete with hundreds of thousands of extras.
But then again, there's something to be said for being able to say, "I was there!"
I'd especially like to say "I was there!" for this amazing cake :)
