The Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

"Every once in a while, in the middle of an ordinary life, 
love gives us a fairytale." 
- anonymous 

After months and months of preparation, Harry and Meghan official became husband and wife, and became the the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. And after months of my own prep, it was so special to witness a piece of history with some amazing women I hosted at my home.

I decorated in a blue and red Union Jack theme with the help from my goodies from my subscription boxes from Quaintly & Co and London Pop Box.

I used other special touches from Zazzle and Amazon such as Harry and Meghan stickers, UK and USA flags, a Corgi balloon, and London themed magnets and toothpicks. 

The menu consisted of toad in the whole, British scones with orange marmalade and blackberry preserves, yogurt, fruit, and granola, and a baked omelet.

Royal English Breakfast tea or coffee anyone? Maybe a mimosa?

The party was complete with Royal Wedding trivia, make-your-own fascinators,  and door prizes!

It as my friend Kelly's birthday so we celebrated with a Chocolate Biscuit Cake, which is said to be the Queen favorite! 

It was a great wedding that I got to share with a great group of friends!

I had to get a picture with my own ginger price, who "wasn't watching", and "wasn't interested at all." Well, the proof is in the picture.

There is so much to be said about the ceremony, Meghan's dress, the titles, and the reception!

Hello? Hello? Is this thing on? Dusting off the cobwebs from the blog.

//1// We've been doing some home improvements!

After nearly six years in our house I finally painted over all of the depressing cream, and brown, and tan of our entire main floor and changed it to a nice light gray with blue undertones. My MIL was instrumental in getting it all done. Nick had some friends over this past weekend to help him with Phase II of the deck rebuild. I love progress.

//2// I've been kind of lazy about reading thus far this year, but I did just finish Night Road by Kristen Hannah. I definitely recommend this one!

// 3 //  Last Friday I didn't have to work so Nick took a vacation day. We visited our state's capital and went to the Michigan History Museum and the Library of Michigan.

We also walked around the campus of MSU and visit Beaumont Tower, where Nick proposed. It was actually sunny and somewhat warm so it was great to be outside!

//4// I've started using Poshmark and have gotten some really cute things! Does anyone use Posmark? I'd love to follow your closet! Mine's called ACuteAngleBlog (of course!).

//5// Awww. My sweet, little doodle dog!
