Cinco de Mayo is almost here and I’m not gonna lie, we Texans have got this covered. My one piece of advice for your Cinco de Mayo fiesta: use color; LOTS of color. Oh and salsa…and queso…and maybe I have more than one piece of advice after all…
Did you watch it? I said I wasn’t going to wake up and watch it live but I am so glad I did. I felt like I was watching a real live fairytale. It really was magical. Can’t explain it. Sigh.
…though it may have been the fact that I watched it with 25 high school girls. My sister had a graduation/Royal Wedding watching party (pictures to come) and needless to say…I didn’t get much sleep last night. You should have heard the screams when the princes arrived. 😉
“In a sense every wedding is a royal wedding with the bride and the groom as king and queen of creation, making a new life together so that life can flow through them into the future.
William and Catherine, you have chosen to be married in the sight of a generous God who so loved the world that he gave himself to us in the person of Jesus Christ.
And in the Spirit of this generous God, husband and wife are to give themselves to each another.”
Such beautiful words and so well said.
I hope you all have a blessed day! I’ll just be here at work wishing I was a princess and trying to hold my eyelids open!

For those of you who have been trying to decide whether or not to throw a Royal Wedding watching party let me make it easy for you. My oh so talented artist/cousin, Kendra of Skunk and Bee designed a banner, drink flags and cards and the best news is, they’re free! All you have to do is print and cut for a smashing good time!
To print these, click on the picture and print! Easy! My sister is having her own little royal wedding/graduation soiree tonight and REALLY early tomorrow morning. I’ve already seen the decor and it is royally perfect! Pictures to come! Cheers!
Corey and Ann Catherine wed on a very special day…my birthday! In fact, not only was it my birthday, it was the mother of the groom, Becky Easterling’s birthday AND during the reception Mr. Easterling received a call that their daughter had delivered a baby girl! This wedding was certainly a day of celebration!
The couple met while attending ‘Ole Miss and was sure to have the football game on every television possible at their reception! Their ceremony took place at Christ the King Catholic Church and the reception at Brook Hollow Golf Club. Please enjoy these photos courtesy of Andrea Polito Photography.
I couldn’t have asked for better clients on my birthday. They were so sweet, so easy-going and so much fun. Ann Catherine even wished me a Happy Birthday on stage at the reception and told all her guests they better do so too. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Easterling!
