Royal Wedding Frenzy

Monday, April 18, 2011
I'm actually ashamed of myself that I'm so obsessed with these two. I'm ashamed but then I also cut myself some slack. I've had a crush on Prince William for pretty much my entire life so it only follows that when he finally picks a lady to marry I'd be very much into it. I can't wait for it to be all over though, the frenzy is just...unnatural. I can only wish Kate goodluck because like many brides that have gone before her, after the wedding frenzy ends, you've got a marriage. And that's one tough cookie to crack.

Outside of royal watching, not much has been going on here besides work. Our anniversary came and went pretty quietly. The first part of the day crashed with me crying and accusing Bo of not taking the day seriously enough since of course he doesn't mark anything. He even worked for a bit, then went off for a skype meeting that lasted a little bit. I called him in and told him I think he's ruined our anniversary, at which point he was so surprised and said, "I'm sorry babe, let's start the day again..." then proceeded to give me the usual million kisses, asked me to get dressed, went to my favorite dinner where apparently when I was in the shower he had called ahead and asked for my favorite cake and a candle. It ended up being a really sweet and romantic day. Even now my husband is laying in the bed next to me and it's indescribable the love I feel towards him. During the dinner we both mentioned three things that have been fabulous about being married to each other so far, one of mine was security and stability. I love that I'm the most important thing to this person sleeping next to me. No more single girl games etc. I truly absolutely love that.

In all I think I learnt another lesson. My anniversary doesn't have to be like anyone else's. We should just do what feels good and natural to us and make sure that our love for each other shines through. I think I got that wrong initially. There are no hard and fast rules.

Lol, I hear you on the Royal Wedding Frenzy, I actually made sure to get the day off work just to watch it at home ha! I think its more to do with the dress for me, gotta see what the dress looks like. I don't think any dress can compete with Princess Diana's....I think thats why everyones so interested besides the fact that here in the UK, it will be a public holiday and so an excuse to party.

Congrats on your wedding annivesary, I pray for more grace for you and Bolaji.

I think I'm part of the minority who don't give a rats ass about the wedding. I guess I have more pressing issues to deal with like: WHERE IN THE WORLD IS MY TAX REFUND, uncle sam?!!!!

happy 1st wedding anniversary! wishing you many more beautiful years together!
I like that you don't bottle things up and you let Bo know how you're feeling, I have to work on that.

i thought i was the only one obsessed with that couple! i had a crush on him too! but i have to admit that i think they make one VERY good looking couple. i can't wait to see the dress she picks. what also strikes me is how LOOOONG she waited for him to make his decision. if na ordinary guy she for fashi him since. as for diana's dress...i thot it was terrible. very over the top 80's...but everyone acts like it was beautiful. no one would wear that kind of dress nowadays! so i'm curious to see how kate sets the tone for wedding dresses to come

@HoneyDame, thanks and Amen!

@Blessing, thanks once again!

@Myne, it's everywhere, and I for one am watching :-)

@doll, thanks!

@Adenike, thanks for the prayers! I think her dress will be very modern and phenomenal.

@Lami, I hear ya on the tax refund. But it's because of all the other troubles in the world that it's fun to indulge in a little bit of fairytale :-)

@Anon, thanks! It's very much a work in progress for myself as well.

@Anon2, i think what everyone agrees on about Diana's dress was that it was out of this world, which is exactly what we want in a princess bride! I however feel that Kate's will be very modern and chic. I predict 3/4 lace sleeves.
