Royal Bliss

Yes, It's true...My invite was lost in the mail!! Geezz...You would think the royal fam could mail a simple invite!! 

Oh what a beautiful and magical wedding it was...

A few personal highlights for me...
-Prince Harry turning to see Kate (when he should be facing forward) as she walks down the aisle and then whispering to William something that I'm sure went like " she comes" haha
-Kate, William, and Harry when they first join at the alter...the giggles and grins they shared! Absolutely precious and so real!! 
-And the most breathtaking moment of all...The carriage ride.  Talk about happily ever after!!

So in honor of the Royal wedding...I give you all things British!!

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6

I promise not to inundate you with royal wedding posts however, I do feel maybe one more up my sleeve!! ; )

I'm dying to know what you thought of the wedding??
What were your fave moments??

Afternoon Delight...

Let's all take the afternoon off, kick our feet up, and toast to the good life!!

This is one outdoor retreat sure to go on my inspiration board!!
Can I move to coast ASAP and buy a surf board please??!!
Who am I on a surf board just seems disastrous!!  I think I'll just lounge poolside (with surf board in had for the"cool" factor) and sip on a yummy Peach Fuzzie!

1 (12-ounce) can frozen pink lemonade concentrate, slightly thawed and divided
3/4 cup vodka, divided
3/4 cup water, divided
4 cups peeled and cubed fresh, ripe peaches (about 6 large), divided
Crushed ice

Process half quantities of first 4 ingredients in a blender until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides. Fill blender with ice to 5-cup level, and process until smooth. Pour into a pitcher. Repeat procedure with remaining ingredients. Garnish, if desired.

This past Easter weekend I went out for a ride on the boat with my daddy and got my first tan lines of the spring/summer!!  YAY...huge smile on my face!!  Ok, wait let me clear this up... I'm not a fan of tan lines but, I am a fan of that sun goddess glow! ; )

Here are a few suits I have my eye on!!

Je T'aime Paris

I would give anything to be walking the streets of Paris today.
Champs Elysee, St Michelle, Gay Lussac (where I called home summer of '05).  There is just something so magical about the the streets of Paris.
Sometimes it's best just to head out into the city with no map and just loose yourself and be free!

Since I can't hop the next plane...I will have to daydream for now...
