A Royal Hangover

A Royal Hangover

I didn’t post yesterday and missed the first day of blogging since I started this whole thing.
I think I needed a day to recover after the royal wedding extravaganza.
Wasn’t it just glorious?
I seriously thought it was perfection.
Kate’s dress was sublime, the tree lined church stunning, and the romance of it all undeniable.
Afterwards, all I wanted to do was dress up and drink tea- something like this…
The wedding was quite literally a fairytale and sent me daydreaming…thinking of things like this…
and this…
and this…
I still feel a bit foggy and drained from the gorgeous of it all.
I had a lovely visit from my parent’s yesterday, which kind of brought me back to reality…sort of.
And today I’m waking up to my favourite kind of day- a shopping one!!!
A Sunday spent doing this, oh how…
Yes, I’m heading out bright and early to go to this…
You can find out more about the event HERE…it’s taking place at the Distillery District- one of my absolute favourite spots in Toronto.
I’m going with the lovely Sarah, of Yummy Mummy Club, and sans de kids…shopping with no ankle bitters- a rare treat!!
I’m hoping to come home with at least a little pretty.
We’ll see- I do have the kitchen reno to keep in mind so I definitely won’t be coming home with lots of these…
But maybe just one…or two.
After all, I really should do my part and think this is VERY important…

    Hope you find some lovely things (just a few, since you are on a reno budget after all) at the Designer Market. And yes, the whole royal extravaganza was just wonderful.

    Enjoy the rest of your day.

    Dear Christine,

    Beautiful blog.

    I love the picture with the wall of frames.

    I watched the wedding on one channel and taped the other. I didn’t want to miss a thing. I still have a lot to watch!

    Enjoy this beautiful day.

    The wedding was absolutely beautiful. Class to the mex. Have fun shopping! I went by the Designer Market yesterday – let me know what you thought of it. My co-shopper said she enjoyed it more last year?

    I agree about the wedding – I think I have the post-wedding blues… did you pick up anything at Kimberly’s sale? I got some awesome fabric last year!

    Isn’t it strange? I can’t get it all out of my brain, either. I guess the human mind is just programmed to crave Happy Endings. Sad thing is, I didn’t want it to end. I’m sad that they’ve given the clear indications that, “Hey folks, wedding’s over – now leave us be.” πŸ™

    I totally agree, and the word that keeps coming to mind is “perfection” as well. She was gorgeous.

    Total snap back to reality when walking around WALMART (if that isn’t a jolt back to reality, I don’t know what is!) today, my 3yo saw the In Touch magazine with W&K on the cover and said, “Hey, ‘member we watched that movie?!” Totally woke my 3yo up to watch it, too. πŸ™‚

    what a clever idea to put bags into frames!! Hmmm…I may have to copy this!

    Oh yes, total wedding hang-over, but it was so worth it! She looked gorgeous – nervous, but stunning never the less.
    Think her darling was a bit too stiff but then again it must have brought back a lot of tough memories being back in the church as a key focal point after his mother’s funeral.. Heart breaking.

    Hope you had a fruitful shopping spree. Do share please.
