Less than 2 weeks until the big day!!!

Hi, I'm Mom in High Heels and I am a royal watcher.  I do not say it with shame.  I say it with pride.  Sort of.  I mean, what little girl didn't dream of growing up to be a princess?  Since we have no royals of our own, the British royals are the ones to watch.  Sure, there are royals from loads of countries, but the Brits OWN royalty.  Own.It.  They have it all: money, power, fame, looks (some of them anyway) and even a sense of duty, responsibility (some of them) and charity.  In less than 2 weeks, the wedding of the year, the decade (and likely the early half of the century) will take place, and I will sooooo be watching.  I can't wait to see the pomp and pageantry and most of all, the dress.  Oh, I am dying to see the dress!!!!  What will Kate wear?  WHO will Kate wear?  It's all a big mystery that I can't wait to unveiled (get it?  un-VEILED?).  Until then though, I eat up every scrap of info that comes to the press about the big day with glee in my royal watching heart.  Some of it is ridiculous (do I really care that Posh Spice will be there?  Nope), some of it interesting (the fact that Kate will buck tradition and arrive in a car instead of a carriage or coach-do you know the difference?  If not, check out this Royal Wedding Wednesday post over at Decor to Adore), and some of it fun and silly.  Recently there was an ad by T-Mobile spoofing the royal wedding (with surprisingly good look-a-likes) that made me laugh.  I had planned on sharing it tomorrow, but it showed up today on the Yahoo front page (damn you, Yahoo scoopers), so I figured I'd go ahead and post it.  If you haven't seen it, it's well worth the time.  Enjoy!

Oh, and in case you're into Lego's (and boy is Indy into Legos), Legoland Windsor has a Lego version of the royal wedding.  Impressive.

I'm so excited too! I can't even put my finger on why, except I'm looking forward to it enough to consider waking up at an ungodly hour to watch it live, instead of waiting for a re-aired version.

And that spoof? HILARIOUS. Those were definitely some good lookalikes!

Saw that spoof last night online and laughed so hard! I am torn on the royals. Part of me is soooo intrigued, and the other part is just really envious. ;) ;) My 5 yr old keeps asking people, "Did you know there is a princess in England getting married this month after Mommy's birthday?" :)
