Eleanor & I woke up at 5:30 this morning to go to a friend's house for an early morning viewing of the Royal Wedding!!! Please tell me that you watched it - it was so much fun! Kate was stunning as was her cute prince. Eleanor decided to wear her jewels to work today in honor of Kate Middleton and Prince William! Too funny!
 Notice her lovely crown - it looks expensive! hahah - and her wedding program specially made for a party hosted in Columbia and us!
