Kate Middleton, I mean Princess Catherine and I are just alike. Seriously,
though, she and I both attended her wedding even though I brought my pups.
And just keep reading because I'm going to tell you all the other ways we are just alike, she and I.
First, I'd like to thank my pup Bailey who was so loyal and kind as to get up from her peaceful slumber and watch every moment of the Royal Wedding with me. Even
bribing them with the promise of breakfast at our favorite cafe my persuasive personality couldn't talk my daughter's or husband into sharing the nuptials of Princess Diana's baby son Will's with me. I watched Diana's wedding 30 years ago and wept for the romance of it all. I was enraptured when she gave birth to her first son William. I think I may have sent her a congratulations card. I grieved when she was killed in that horrific car accident, as though I knew her personally. Of course I was going to have first row seats at the wedding of her son and his beloved. I'm not only a hopeless romantic, I'm a sentimental sap.
I believe the whole thing started (on the West Coast) @ 3:00 am., but I was up bright eyed and
"Thanks, Bay's. I knew I could count on
Anyway, back to the ways in which I relate to Kate Middleton, now Princess of Wales. Compare and see.
1. I'm Irish
2. She drives a Bentley
I drive a 12 year old minivan
3. Over one billion people watched her get married
Over 100 people watched me get married
4. She'll never have to make another bed in her life
I'm making mine in between writing this post
5. Her complexion is that of an English rose
I'm trying to fix mine with wrinkle repair cream
6. Once, as a romantic gesture, Prince William landed his helicopter
in her garden
Once, my husband left his emergency break off and landed his truck
in our neighbor's pool
7. Catherine looks stunning in a hat
My head's to fat for a hat
8. Kate has an impeccable English accent
I can fake an impeccable English accent
9. My 3 year old granddaughter sports a Tierra
Princess Catherine now dons a real tierra
10. Kate is the princess of her castle
I know Bailey - I know. I guess we're not that alike after all but, a girl can dream can't she? After all, I did have a front row seat at the wedding.
Sniff, Snuffle, Sniff.
How about we'll just settle for the fact that she's a commoner and I'm a commoner. NO? Not anymore? Okay then, and I know I'm spot on this one... I'm old enough to be her mother. Enough said.
My heartfelt congratulations to Prince William and his Princess Kate. The pups and I wish you a lifetime of profound joy, good health and, well, I guess the wealth thing is a given.
