Introducing the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge

Did you wake up early to watch the royal wedding?

With the eyes of the world watching, Prince William and Catherine Middleton became husband and wife today – they are now Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Unfortunately I had to work today so I did not wake up at 4 am to start watching. I had my DVR set and was able to watch the ceremony and the first kiss as I was getting ready for work.  {I plan on watching more tonight}

Since today was the royal wedding, I wore this FAB diamond and tanzanite ring from work all day in their honor.

Back to the Royal Wedding.  

Kate was STUNNING! 
I honestly thought that this was a very classic and modern choice for her. Of course she looks gorgeous in anything and everything!

I loved how the sermon began by saying, "Every wedding is a royal wedding." 

LOVE that. 

They exchanged vows to love, comfort, honor and keep to each other forever.
They decided to remove “obey” from the vows. I don’t blame them…I don’t want to put “obey” in mine either! HAHA

I also loved how nervous Prince William and Kate were! The nervous smiles were adorable. Kate looked so sweet and I could tell as they said their "I do's" that they were just like every other couple. Nervous yet excited. 

 LOVED it, almost cried, really. Did you guys get emotional too? And when the ring  {a classic gold band taken from traditional Welch gold} didn't slide smoothly in, I got nervous for them. Did you see that? 

I just was just as excited to see both Prince William and Kate now Dutch and Dutches of Cambridge, come out on the balcony to see how many people have gathered outside just to sneak a peak at the "kiss". The first kiss was so quick. A peck, really Kate and Will?! I guess if 2 billion people were watching me I would be a little nervous too. Can you imagine all those people just waiting to see you kiss?!

How adorable is this little girl covering her ears?! I can only imagine how loud it was with all of those people there celebrating the royal wedding. 

There where so many hats to see!
Such a pretty one worn by the fab Victoria Beckham. What do you think about her? I loved it, she looks fab, even when she's preggo. ..and did you notice David? I thought so. :)

Here are some other beautiful looks:

And then there were the NO! WHY would you do that?! Really?!!

There is NO WAY I would EVER be caught wearing that. Just Sayin'. 

The cake was FABULOUS!

 What a sweet get away in the vintage Aston Martin 

Overall, I loved this....of course! 
What are your thoughts on the  Royal Wedding?

Oh Spring weather.
I have a love/hate relationship with you. 
One day you bring beautiful, sunny, 70 degree weather...
the next you bring hail, thunderstorms and tornadoes! I love a thunderstorm every now and then but come on...this is getting ridiculous.

All of this rainy weather has become all to common this month.
Can we get a break, please?

Fayetteville has gotten more than enough bad weather lately. If the U of A closes early, that tells you something because that NEVER happens! Here are a few pictures of what they have been experiencing lately:

Since I have moved I had to make a little change. That's right folks, no more cable. We have the lovely little satellite dish on our house now that I live in the middle of nowhere my lovely new home.

So that means every time it sprinkles storms, you are likely to not be able to watch TV. On top of that, the Arkansas News stations are paranoid about a little storm so you can forget watching your regularly programmed show, you will be seeing a lovely radar. Why can't they just take up a small portion of the screen? Really people....some people just don't want to watch that all day and night, especially when it interferes with shows they always watch. Just sayin'. I suggest news stations get a channel of their own for this reason.

I happened to be off work today and since it was storming most of the day {and the satellite wasn't getting reception} I thought it would be a great opportunity to catch up on all my trashy reality TV shows I always record if I happen to miss. Well soon did I find out that my fiance deleted all my shows!!!! Needless to say, I wasn't happy with him. He went on with saying he couldn't record any of his because mine were taking up all the room on the DVR. He just so happened to delete the ones I didn't watch and left the ones I had. Really? Thanks a lot Brad!

Wee Bit Wednesday

{one} how often do you do laundry?

At least every other day. Brad will not use a towel twice or wear a shirt or pants more than once. That leaves me with TONS. Then there is the ironing...oh the ironing....

{two} what is your favorite type of cookie?
Chocolate Chip

{three} what would you do with an extra $2000 per month?
Well since I have gotten this new job in a FABULOUS jewelry store...I have had my eyes on more than a few pieces of jewelry.

{four} what was/is your favorite subject in school?
My favorite subject was definitely English. 

{five} have you ever ridden in a hot air balloon?
No. Even though I am scared of heights I have always wanted to try it. (I say that now...that might change if I were to actually be about to ride one)

{six} what was your high school mascot?


{seven} if you had the chance to go into space, would you?
I think it would be beautiful seeing as how much as I love looking at the stars. However, I can see them just fine from where I am at so I think I will just stay grounded.

{eight} how often do you go dancing?
 "Go Dancing" - Never.
Dance when no one is watching - fairly often.  

{nine} would you rather drive or fly?
Fly. Driving takes too long!

{ten} have you ever been caught re-gifting?
No. I love being able to go shopping for gifts for each person.

New Product Reviews and BIG NEWS

This weekend I tried a few new products I have been hearing a lot about lately....
I also found out some BIG NEWS! :)

{I tried it and love it}
Olay Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System

 I’ve heard some really good things about the Clarisonic Cleansing System.
 It's been on my wish list for awhile now.
But it is mega $$$ compared to the Olay Pro-X System.
It's a bargain for only $30!
I have only used it twice so far...
but I must say....
I love it!
I thought my makeup remover was doing a good job until I tried this!
I couldn't believe all the excess makeup it removed.
The brush is so gentle (which is a plus).
Overall, this item has left my face feeling clean, refreshed and oh so soft!

{I tried it and like it}
Sally Hansen Nail Strips

Originally I had doubts about this product. 
Nail polish strips that are easy to apply and actually last?
I didn't believe it.
Each time I went to Wal-Mart I would go by the cosmetic department and look at these.
Well I finally tried it.
This is SO EASY!
I just put them on yesterday but they are lasting so far.
I love the fact that there is NO DRY TIME.
I have already gotten so many complements on them.
They are supposed to last up to 10 days so we will see how long they really stay on!

{Big News}

As you all know I recently moved. 
Since I have been here I have been looking for a job. 
Last weekend I posted about a fundraiser event I attended. 
At that event I met so many people.
I was asked to come in for a job interview the next Friday. 
Last night I was just finishing dinner with all the ladies in Brad's family
and got a phone call from the person I interviewed with. 
I was completely caught off guard.


I couldn't be more excited! I start tomorrow morning.
I will be working at what I believe is the best jewelry store!

I might be a little partial 
since my engagement ring came from there
But since I was a child I have always known about this place.
I cannot wait.
Could you imagine working around all that fabulous jewelry all day!
I can't wait to help customers find the perfect gift, engagement ring or upgrade!

Oh Ellen

I just love Ellen!
She always makes my day.

This is the outfit she picked out in case she got a last-minute invitation to the Royal Wedding.

Aren't hats a requirement at this event?

What I'm Loving Wednesday

{I'm Loving}

Bethenny Ever After is currently one of my favorite shows. Although I never really got into Real Housewives of New York or her spin off show Bethenny Getting Married...I have quickly become a fan of this show. This girl does not hold back. She is true to who she is and speaks her mind. I love her personality and the fact that she isn't afraid to say anything.
 I have also wanted to try this little creation of hers:

Has anyone tried the Skinny Girl Margarita?

{I'm Loving}
The Royal Wedding  is April 29

I couldn't be more excited for this wedding. I have this odd obsession with the royal family. I love Kate's style and know that she will look stunning in whatever dress she wears. I can only imagine the stress she is going through right now considering how much this wedding is in the spotlight around the world.

{I'm Loving}
Jennifer Lopez was announced People's Most Beautiful Woman in the WORLD

This girl is glamorous and is beautiful inside and out. I haven't seen all the other people named as beautiful/handsome in this issue but I think that she was a good choice as most beautiful.

{I'm loving}
This video

This guy is incredible
I don't see how this is even possible....
I'm impressed!

{I'm Loving}
That I was worried that I couldn't have my Starbucks Coffee since I recently moved and THERE IS NO STARBUCKS here (depressing)....but the gym I recently joined has a coffee shop inside that brews Starbucks. HALLELUJAH !!
