Friday Wrap Up

Oh jesh I tried so very hard not to make any reference to the Royal Wedding in this post but whose kidding who; a little piece of history unfolded today and I am proud to say I was able to watch it all in the wee hours of 3:00 am. Was I the only chick who felt like she too was getting married today thanks to my inability to fall asleep last night? I will never forget the image engraved in my mind of Kate climbing into the car with her father, millions of eyes watching her with bated breath. I'll never forget how sweet it was to watch her hold back her giggles and smiles during the ceremony as her and William stole glances from one another. And I can confidently say that her custom made Sarah Burton gown which fit perfectly with her modern but timeless look will inspire thousands of brides-to-be over the next few years. Kate you are the epitome of regalness, of glamour, of what it means to be a lady. And millions adore you.

In other news, I've been doing a little soul searching on the blogging front. A few changes will be coming to Hey Gorg and I hope you'll be excited to welcome them along with me. My girl cave is coming along nicely thanks to a few new vintage purchases (I can't wait to share them with you) and Apb and I are headed out this weekend to go shopping for some new pieces for our apartment. All in all life is pretty good. A little crazy, a little unpredictable but hey that's how it goes. As usual, here's what went down this week over here in case you missed any of the fabulousness that ensued. Above photo from Vogue by Pascal Le Segretain/Getty Images.

You said everything just perfectly, Rhiannon!!! I agree completely, she was so elegant, sophisticated and such a lady! I also was up early at 3:30AM to start watching at 4AM NYC time and I couldn't sleep and then I was nervous in the morning...perhaps a dress rehearsal for my wedding next year! ;) Lovely photo you chose to use for this post too!

Love this line "Kate you are the epitome of regalness, of glamour, of what it means to be a lady." Her dress is timeless and classic.

Love you, Rhi!

Hi Rhi - awww I am so glad you liked felt kinda like Britain was on show and I think Kate just completely got it right! The dress - I am bewitched with that dress - can not think of a more fitting look for her. The whole day has been awesome - really touching and fantastic for this little country of mine. What a show! The whole thing was just wonderful. OK gonna stop gushing now..Lou x

I told myself I wasn't going to watch the royal wedding until I was home with a TV...yeah that didn't happen! I admit, I teared up when she stepped out of the car, it was like watching a Disney princess movie! And they were so precious at the altar...did you see Prince Harry say to Prince William, "Wait till you see her" when Kate was walking down the aisle? Awww :)
Have a great weekend!

I too watched the Royal Wedding from my chemo chair at the hospital today. I had no choice, it was flooding through on every channel. It was such an experience of beauty and happiness. No updates on local murders, injustices or countries in chaos and uprise...truly a fairy tale of love and joy unfolding before us. I thought of John Lennons famous song, Imagine, how fitting a song for a perfect event unfolding with over 2 billion worlwide tuning in.My favorite movie of all time, Moulan Rouge's main character simply said it best, I will love you until my dying day, and that is what Wills and Kate's eyes both said. "The greatest thing you'll ever learn is to love and be loved". I couldn't help but feel a bursting love in my heart of a time not long ago of another bride who simply took my breath away.To that dove, I love you and you are my Kate.

Kristin said...

kellyhicks said...

I tried to pretend it wasn't happening, too, but it was just too gorgeous! I'm delighted that girls for decades will be inspired by such a timeless bride and a gorgeous gown!
