how i'm celebrating the royal wedding this weekend

It feels like just yesterday, the year was 2011 and we were all watching Kate Middleton in her Alexander McQueen dress getting married to Prince William. Actually, that feels like a long time ago if I'm being honest...can't we please go back to that simpler time? Haha. I'm probably the most unabashedly royal-obsessed person I know. I've read the biographies, I've watched the documentaries, I've copied Kate's outfits, I've successfully predicted the babies' names (with Louis being the exception....didn't see that coming at all but love it). 

So, of course, I'll be watching and celebrating Prince Harry's wedding to Meghan Markle this weekend. Last weekend, we were treated to the Lifetime movie but now it's time for the real thing. So, how am I celebrating and how should you?

It's going to be pretty low key, considering none of us are going to throw a full-on party before seven in the morning. At least, I don't think anyone is going to do that.

I'll be making my favorite cranberry-orange scones the night before in preparation, as well as an easy fruit salad to have for breakfast. In the morning, I'll get up at an ungodly hour to lay out the food and prepare my cup of tea (Earl Grey with sugar and a splash of almond milk). 

The coverage begins at five in the morning (EST) ceremony starts at seven, so I'll be in the living room, likely with the comforter from my bed and my favorite matching pink pajama set. I'll get super excited watching the ceremony and afterward, I'll probably drift back off to bed to catch up on the sleep that I missed by being an absolute nut for waking up this early to watch two strangers wed.

P.S. We watched the Lifetime movie this past Sunday and I was really, really surprised at how good it was. Definitely the best quality Lifetime movie I've ever seen! The two leads were great. I didn't love how Charles, Kate, and William were portrayed but that's ok :) 

Are you guys going to watch the wedding? How will you celebrate?
