Obsessed Much??

YES! Why yes, I am!

I cannot get enough of this Prince William- Kate Middleton engagement madness. They've got me hook line and sinker. All I can say is, I wanna be Kate when I grow up!

I love them as a couple (spoken as though we are BFF and have dinner parties every Friday night...), I think she is precious, but not overly perfect...which is so refreshing. You can bet your bottom dollar I will be cuddled up on the couch, hot chocolate in hand for tonight's "Royal Engagement" special on ABC!

I am so in love with her ring and I think it is so special that he gave her Princess Diana's ring. What an honor for her to have such a treasure and how precious that William was able to give her a piece of his mother. Y'all, I'm puddy...

And seriously, she found that gorgeous navy dress to compliment the ring...swoon!

I loved Princess Di. Of course, I was fairly young while she was in her prime, but I feel like I grew up "knowing her". She was the Princess of Wales for sobbing out loud. She was gorgeous, a style icon and always so classy.
I think Kate will continue that tradition of class and style and it will be interesting to see her in the royal spotlight as they begin their family.
So, the party date is set. July 8th, 2011! Come on over in all of your wedding party glory. Put on your favorite bridesmaid dress (and by favorite I mean one that still fits...) and we'll have a royal wedding celebration!

Nezzy said...

Yep, this Ozark Farm Chick adores all the pomp and glamor. I do pray that the couple are truly in-love and Kate isn't just breedin' stock lead to slaughter in the way Di was.

Oh baby, I could sport a ring like that on my finger!!! :o)

The party sounds like a hoot and a half...I hadn't realized they'd set the date.

From the beautiful hills and hollers of the Missouri Ponderosa, ya'll have a wonderfully blessed day!!! :o)
