Royal Wedding - Prince Harry And Meghan

So, if you are counted among us earthlings, by now you know that we had a Royal wedding last Saturday. You also know that it was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!  Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tied and the knot in all the pomp and splender that we expected and we loved it all. From the start to the finish it was riveting.  We watched history being made and most of us were excited and happy to watch it happen.

When I was a little girl I was fortunate enough to watch Princess Diana's wedding, then in 2011 I also watched Kate Middleton and William's extravaganza wedding, as well.  Both were captivatingly

There were so many expectations for Harry and Meghan's nuptials though. Not to mention all the drama and speculation leading up to this wedding which only heightened the excitement.

We were not disappointed!

From Prince Harry walking into the church with so much swagger, to the two precious little boys who held the veil and Meghan's carriage ride to the church with her mom, just before the dress reveal. I and the rest of the world was spell bound.

And speaking of the dress!!!! The Givenchy was so NOT what I expected.  This very simple, sophisticated and modern silhouette was very refreshing and suited Meghan to a tee.  It could have been a little bit more fitted to her body (because I am super nit-picky) but never-the-less, she looked absolutely stunning in her gown.

Here are my favorite pictures of the royal couple.  Enjoy!

Just Dance! (Guest Post By Shanda Neighbors)

I don't know why I'm wired this way, but when I hear upbeat music, I can't help myself, I have to move to it. I can't tell you how many times I've been in a crowd, heard a great song and felt like I was losing my mind trying to control the urge to dance, then looked around and it seemed like no one else could hear the music playing or was having the same issue. I really don't even have to hear music out loud, if it's in my head, same problem. My sister even came up with a name for it, "random dancing." Apparently I break out in spontaneous fits of dancing. Her son, my nephew has the same ailment. Whatever is wrong with me I've learned to except it. It's my normal, and thirty some years have taught me this oddity isn't going anywhere.

Lately, it's been harder to control the urge. What I need is a few hours of nonstop dancing, to get it all out of my system. I feel like I need to just hit a dance floor (most likely in my kitchen) dance like crazy, and leave it all there.  If I don't address this soon, I'm afraid I'll end up like this guy:
