PRINCESS Pajama Party ♥



{{viewing party of the Royal Wedding of William & Kate}}





Pajama's, Pink Tiara's, & Princess Punch!




Waking up at 3 in the morning was just a little too much for us.
{{we like our sleep around here}}
So instead, we recorded the Wedding and will have a small "viewing party" for us girls on Sunday!



pictures to come of all the fun!




HAPPY ROYAL FRIDAY Lovelies!


LOVE,
A



a ROYAL Wedding ♥


fit for a PRINCESS!





I LOVE that she did her own little wave
&
not the stiff "proper" wave!



the DRESS!

by Alexander McQueen
{{Sarah Burton ,creative director of British fashion house Alexander McQueen}}

The blushing bride made her long-awaited arrival at Westminster Abbey looking elegant and stunning
in a long-sleeve lace, ivory and satin gown with flattering V neckline and 8-foot-long train, with a simple lace-edged veil and understated (for royal standards) tiara sparkling over her half up, half down hairdo.





the  Ceremony...





{{my favorite picture}}



MORE pictures of the DRESS to come...

{{as soon as I find better ones!}}

TIARA, of course!




any bets on who we think she will be wearing?
I'm hoping for an Alexander McQueen Gown!

*also I'd like to just say that my heart, thoughts, & prayers
are with everyone who has been effected by this crazy weather yesterday!
Stories of just what this storm did is heartbreaking!



I'm so thankful that my cousin, who was a student at University of Alabama,
had just recently decided to transfer back home and go to UCF instead!
So having this come close to my family,
I can only imagine what others are going through with their family members and loved ones being there.
SO SO sad!




LOVE,
A
