Royal wedding weekend has come to a close! Honestly, I had no interest whatsoever in the whole shebang until late Thursday night….then it hit me. And I was excited. Not enough to wake up at 4 a.m. But thanks to the excessive coverage of all things wedding by E, I was able to watch the whole thing from 8 a.m. onwards. I ooo’ed and ahhh’ed and made Jon skype with me for a long time so I could have someone to watch with (because of course the Brits had the actual day off…but I’m a grad student with every Friday off…high five). The whole thing was beautiful. The dress…THE DRESS. Gorgeous. Well done royals. And for those who think the debacle was embarrassing, unneccessary, people don’t have jobs, etc etc. Well maybe they’re right, but I for one was happy to be a part of a single love-filled moment that (very literally) the world watched. It’s a nice break from everything terrible going on out there.
Moving on. Yesterday was a nice afternoon for some catch up beers on the patio at Jimmy V‘s. I don’t love the place on the inside, but I adore their patio! Thank goodness the weather is warming up-if not quite drying up yet.
Mike joined us later in his sassy red shirt. Hi Mike!
Eventually the sun disappeared and we walked home. The fellas went out for what turned into a rowdy guys’ night which I gladly declined, despite much jeering and pushing in my direction. Apparently, I am a guy. Figures.
