Yes I am waiting for the real thing. Will be waking up at 4 a.m. on the morning of April 29. I know, I know, I could just watch the reruns, but its not the same thing. You see, I am a hopeless romantic. I believe in joy, love and hope; ideas wrapped up in every wedding. OK, I also can't wait for the spectacle of the British Royal wedding as well. I think spectacle is one of those things that many of us enjoy. We may not be able to afford it ourselves but I never resent that someone else can create such a dream world for themselves. It's why one of my favorite shows on TV is Platinum Weddings and Say Yes to the Dress. (My wedding dress cost $40 from the Filene's Basement Bride Run.)
For any of my readers in the UK who are annoyed about the cost to the taxpayer and annoyed at me for looking forward to the wedding: I am also glad that I am not paying for any part of it with my taxes. Sorry, a bit cheeky of me I know, but in all fairness we got to underwrite Michelle's vacation in Spain.
Until next time,
