Royal obsession.

The British Royal family has always intrigued me! Even as a child, I loved Princess Diana. I had books about her and always loved to see the beautiful gowns she would wear. I went to London when I was in the 9th grade and loved getting to see their palaces in person. I also went to Paris about 6 months after Diana's death and actually drove through the tunnel of her wreck. I don't know what it is about the royals that is so captivating but with the new engagement of Prince William, I am obsessed again! :)

I think its is such an honor for Kate to get to wear his mother's ring! It says a lot about how he feels about her to trust her with such a precious memory of his mother!

I can't wait to hear all about this royal wedding and HOPEFULLY it will be televised so we can all watch in awe!


Anyone else want to admit their ROYAL OBSESSION?! :)

Julie...we would so be friends if we lived in the same state! I am totally obsessed with them too! Mine obsession started with Diana. I hope we can watch it on TV too!
I think it's wonderful that you help people find their dogs as well. I'm a big dog lover myself. Yesterday I tried to go over to 3 dogs on the side of a busy road here in town but they wouldn't let me near them and ran off into the woods somewhere...they had tags on them too. ANyways....hope you have a great day!

I have always loved them. In high school I had the biggest crush on Prince William and loved anything to do with Princess Diana (so did my mom). I hope the wedding is televised also.

The engagement has definitely caught my interest again...even moreso that of my husband. He watches all the latest on GMA while I'm getting ready in the morning and fills me in on the details. So funny!

So glad you brought it up!! I am a little obsessed. I just love it! I remember Princess Diana and the day that she died too. I believe it was on a Sunday and I remember my dad telling me before church. Anyways, can't wait for the big day. Are you having a party? ha... maybe you could do her hair?
