Royal Wedding Countdown...

Yes, I'm one of those.  I admit it.  I'm getting up a little before 3:00 AM CT just so I don't miss a thing. 

Yes, I know about all the Royal marriages that have failed, but I still want to be there.  Yes, it all costs a small fortune and seems kind of ridiculous in these economic times, but I still want to be there.  I just can't help myself.

Even I was a little worried about myself today.  I went over to the storage facility where I have some dolls stored and dug through boxes until I found my Prince Charles and Princess Diana wedding dolls.  Then I went to Party City to see if they had any Royal Wedding stuff, but they didn't.  I at least wanted a British flag, but no luck.

I came home and gave the Royal couple a place of honor on the bookshelf.  I felt Prince William's mother and father should both be present and that's why I put them up.  I stored them away after the marriage failed, but it was time to dust them off and bring them out again.

I was about to take a picture when I noticed someone standing next to Prince Charles.  I knew it wasn't Camilla.

It's actually some action figure that Reid added to the scene.  Yes, my family is poking fun at my Royal Wedding obsession which seems to have gained momentum in the last 24 hours.  I actually found myself humming God Save The Queen today.

It will all be over soon.  I just hope this one takes.


  1. Betty....I'm up with you.... it's 3:30am...and I'm looking forward to watching the beautiful wedding.
    I'm voting this marriage will last.

    Love your dolls with the action figure cute!

    Hope I can stay awake....
