I've been doing my prep work.
I've been watching all the coverage of the Royals on TLC.
I've studied the itinerary and the times of each event.
I've done the difficult math in my head to determine what time it will be in Houston, Texas when these festivities are taking place.
I know that Kate Middleton and her father will leave the Goring Hotel at 10:51am London time (4:51am Houston time) and arrive at Westminster Abbey at 11:00am London time (5:00am Houston time) at which point the ceremony will begin.
I know that they will appear on the balcony of Buckingham Palace at 1:25pm London time (7:25am Houston time) to wave and kiss.
I know that I will be INCREDIBLY disappointed if she does not wear a crown or a tiara as is rumored. Apparently she may settle for a hat but come on, Kate! You of all people have a fantastic reason to wear a tiara. Wear it. WEAR IT FOR ALL OF US.
Now, some of you might be thinking "Jen, why don't you just DVR the wedding and watch it later?"
I will not be up at 3am watching every member of the Royal family walk into the Abbey. I don't really care and I can watch all that later (as I will be recording this) but I FULLY intend to wake up and see her leave her hotel and arrive at the Abbey. I intend to watch her walk down the aisle.
Because this is an historic moment, people, and I want to watch it live!!
And she's just so beautiful and fashion-forward and I am super excited to see what her dress looks like.
I told Grant about my plans and he said "Wow. Women are so different from men".
Even some of my own friends that that I am silly but I'm sorry, this is very exciting for me. I love weddings. I love history. I used to have a crush on Prince William. I love diamonds and crowns and tiaras. This is happening.
