The world has been buzzing about this day since Prince William and Catherine Middleton announced their engagement back in November. I know that I have been looking forward to it. I wasn't born yet when Prince Charles married Lady Diana back in 1981, so I was ecstatic to be able to witness such a piece of history this time.
Since I don't have a typical job anymore, I've really gotten myself into a weird sleep pattern. I usually don't go to bed until 2 or 3 AM and then wake up somewhere between 10 AM and noon. I know, I'm such a slacker, aren't I? I got into bed by about 2 AM this morning and was listening to the TV as I played Solitaire on my phone to get myself tired. I found some Royal Wedding coverage that started at 2:30 AM, so I did what any obsessed person would do; I turned it on. Even though I had already set the DVR to record the event. Nothing beats watching it live, right? Well, as soon as I started watching the coverage, I knew that there was no way that I would be able to shut it off and go to sleep, even though I had a busy day today. So, I stayed up all night and watched it!
It was so exciting to watch this event happening live. I am still so in love with everything wedding and would get married again in a heartbeat. (To the same man, of course!)
There was so much speculation over Kate's dress, and the world was not disappointed.
I can only imagine the nerves that she had before making her long walk down the aisle. And she had such a long walk, I heard someone say that it took her 4 minutes. Crazy!
After a short break, where I fell asleep for about an hour, the newlyweds emerged on the balcony at Buckingham Palace to greet the public. And share their first kiss!
