Since we didn’t receive the above invitation in time (sigh!), we thought we might throw a party of our own to watch the royal wedding.  Given the early hour (4 a.m. EST), the dress is pj’s and robes…

    My boys DVR’d the entire event for me and it was soooo dreamy. A real fairytale, but I think I like the fascinator you show the best!!
