The neat thing about lunch with my boss is it always evens itself out. If she suggests it, she pays. If I suggest it, we split it ;) Though I did take her out on her birthday and pay! You have to figure it's her money anyways..... Nonetheless it's always a nice break in the day to chit chat about the two W's...work or my wedding. Although she's only about 44 (?) she likes to tell me she's older and wiser and that she knows best....That said, hearing her point of view on my wedding and random things is fun. I don't always agree with what she says, but I do appreciated her advice.
As we were walking back to our office, we started discussing the Royal Wedding...she pointed out that she was shock at how unbelievable calm Kate appeared to be. K (I'll herein refer to my boss as K...and yes, she shares a full first name with the new wife of Prince William) also raved about the crazy amount of people that camped out to catch a fleeting glimpse of the newlyweds. I couldn't help but laugh and say, "Yah! You'd almost think Robert Pattinson was there!" To which she smirked at me....
Seriously, you'd think *he* was there!
Crowds surround the entrance of Buckingham Palace.
That, or Robsten was getting married!
I KID. Sort of.
Moving on before I go on a "I heart Robsten, then should get married and have lotsa pretty babies rampage...."
Back to Rob.
He's ROYAL in my book.
In all seriousness, I watched a lot of the coverage this evening, and admittedly, got quite choked up. I think the enormity of it sunk in. As some of you may know, my Mom was born in England...about 45 minutes outside of London. She moved here when she was 5 or 6. Both my Grandparents were born & lived there until they moved to the US in 1961(?) Even though my Mom practically grew up here and lost most of her accent, my Grandparents never lost theirs. I have been to the UK 3 times in my life and absolutely loved it. Despite the non-California-esque-ness to it...it felt like home. I know you're laughing, it's ok.... I think you get what I mean...I cherish that country because I know my Mom and her whole family are from there...it's 50% of me...of my BLOOD.
Did someone say blood?!
Anyways, William & Kate's marriage was a pretty huge event and will forever be remembered. One day I'll be telling my children that I got married 6 mos after them. Crazy.
P.S. I really liked Kate's dress. It was simple, yet elegant and unique. Congrats to the two of them. May they live in love, health and happiness!
P.S.S Wonder if Mr. & Mrs. Pattinson were there...amongst the crowd?
