Its no secret...

That I love anything British (as in I seriously should have been born in England...and probably in the 1700's), so it's not surprising I'm super excited about Prince William and Kate's wedding tomorrow! Yes I'm waking up at 4 to watch it. And no I'm not ashamed at all. I think the whole royal lineage of England is so interesting! I'm a total dork and have read this,

My mom loves history too and we have had many conversations about who reigned when and how they came to be king or queen.

And one of my all time favorite movies is this,

Its so romantic, she and Prince Albert were so in love with each other, and I think she was a great queen even though she was a bit stuffy in old age.

And even though it was rather racy I LOVED this show

I'm in love with Henry Cavill who played Charles Brandon, Duke of Suffolk.

Oh and this movie was wonderful,

I think King George was one of the greatest kings of Britian, he knew his duty and wasn't going to give up no matter what it took and no matter how much he was told he couldn't do it. 

So yeah, I'm pretty excited for the first Royal Wedding of my lifetime. Its quite a fairy tale and is lovely to dream about (even though it makes me laugh when they say Kate is a commoner when her family has a multi million dollar business, I'm sorry but in the US that's not a commoner, but I know in Britain technically it is).

And here's a wedding picture of Queen Elizabeth for good measure. 

(I've always thought Prince Philip is very handsome, even now.) 

So happy wedding day tomorrow!

Homesick for LA.

I turned on The Hills today while I am doing homework and I suddenly found myself so homesick for that city. Its just been a year and half since I moved away, it feels like yesterday and yet it feels like a lifetime ago I lived there! Sometimes it seems like it was a dream too. But it was the best time of my life! LA was where I grew up and learned who I was and what I can take and how strong I am. I remember that time for all the good things that happened, not the bad (a boy who broke my heart, a job I absolutely hated etc...); all I remember is that one 4th of July we spent at Crystal Cove and all came home burnt to a crisp. Our first Hollywood night and how my middle toe was numb for a month because of the shoes I was wearing, the night we stayed in a hotel after a concert so we wouldn't be late to work the next day, weekends spent screaming and laughing at Disneyland, days spent on the beach, seeing the Hollywood sign from Griffith Observatory, driving to San Diego on a whim for a concert, Ashlee and I driving home together from work on days she was in the city, seeing Wicked with all the girls, going to The Oscars (well watching the stars arrive from far away anyway), Halloween on Santa Monica blvd, walking around the town we lived in every night... Life has been pretty tame since we moved away, living with the parents and being poor while in grad school kinda cramps your style. I know I'll have other times in my life that will be awesome, like getting a job after this degree, whenever I get married and have kids, but I'll always remember my life in LA and I'll always have a soft spot for that city (don't ever dis SoCal around me!).

sorry for the random post, I'm just procrastinating from reading about a history of gardens and villas and I was dreaming of running away from this quarter to California. Happy weekend, hope you are doing something fun! I think I'm going to go to a roller derby competition with the girls tonight! I've never been to one before! So it shall be a new experience!
