It's like the angel and the devil over your shoulder-- one saying "What a beautiful day, it's the perfect wedding, what a stunning bride!" and the other saying "Boo, this isn't fair! I'm not even allowed to catch the bouquet anymore!" And the more you try to tell that one to shut up, the louder he gets.
But then you get it out of your system and you're back to your old self, enjoying weddings and relishing in the happy memories of your own; appreciating how cool it is that weddings can be so different and yet equally beautiful, classy and fun.
I love weddings. And I was honestly over the "I'll never be a bride again" sadness hump.
But then there was Kate Middleton. She blew me away. And made me seriously pine for a time capsule.
Seriously. What a vision.

But you know why my Friday, April 29th, 2011 was even better than Kate Middleton's? This is why:
Ok, not quite as fun, but close. My sister in law, mother in law and I had an authentic British morning tea party, complete with homemade scones (Bisquick counts, right?), apricot jam, and handmade crazy hats.
Even Niall was into it.
And, drum roll please....
Yes, "authentic" $12 Princess Diana engagement rings from www.royalwedding.com. Our motto is go big or go home ;)
So put that in your pipe and smoke it, Kate.
Just kidding, I want to be you.
Niall loves your votes!
