So whenever my friend wrote to me in March asking if I could come up for the Royal Wedding, I had to ask her when it was. I wasn't keeping track. I didn't know who was attending or what the wedding cake was going to be like.
But of course I said yes.
So I drove up from Dallas on Thursday morning the 28th and spent the afternoon and evening helping to prepare all the food we were going to be ingesting at 4am on Friday. Strawberry Basil scones (to be topped with freshly whipped creme and strawberry jam), Prince William's Cake, mini cupcakes, fruit salad with berries and mint, baked sausage bites ... I can't even remember what else. OH: like, 8 pots of tea. of COURSE.
Getting up at 4am aside, we had a wonderful time watching the wedding festivities - history! - unfolding live. We laughed at a few of the crazy hats (seriously, ladies?), wished Diana was there, and were appropriately awed by The Dress.
Here are a few photos from our memorable weekend. =)

Did you do anything festive to commemorate the Royal Wedding Weekend?
