What will Meghan wear???

Oh my goodness...I am so excited for the big wedding tomorrow.

I'm glad I can share my joy here....in my real life...I am all alone!

hehe

Except a guy I just met at Target.  We had a nice long convo about the dress and Harry's facial hair and which channel to watch....

So.

I think Harry will not shave.  Even tho he is required to shave while wearing a uniform.
I expect he will wear a uniform.  BUT.  I do not think he will shave.

I hope Meghan wears a small tiara.  My guess is the one Diana wore for her wedding.
Kate's tiara was very small but I feel it is too soon to wear the same one.

I have chosen some dresses that I just feel seem like Meghan's style.
I chose dresses with sleeves and not too low of a neckline.

We shall see tomorrow morning...Bright and Early if she wears something like I imagine.


Beautiful bride.




I'd love to see her hair like this.



I think she needs volume in the skirt but Windsor is really NOT that wide and spacious...
so....maybe not.



I like this pretty top.  Does she want a little lace?



I love this dress. 
Please wear this dress.
And do your hair like this too.



Beautiful sleeves.





I feel like Meghan will wear something structured.  But this structured?



This would be absolutely fabulous!!!  I don't care if it does not have sleeves.  Nice gloves would be cool.  A little Audrey Hepburn. 






How I wish I was a stylist.  
Do you think it's too late to pursue this line of work?



Who will be awake and watching it live with me?

Met Gala 2018

Last night was the annual Met Gala.  The theme this year was Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Church.  The Vatican actually sent pieces of art and clothing to the Met in New York to use for the exhibition.  I was excited to see what the designers came up with to express this theme in their creations.

I thought it was amazing.


If you look closely you can see Blake's head dress.   Many women wore crowns and "rays" of light.
Stunning bodice.















I thought you might like to see Mary Kate and Ashely.






I think Madonna looks like a Spanish Queen.  I do love her head piece.
This theme was made for her.
Like a Prayer.






Many liked this dress. 
I liked the colorful cross.







Who are you?
Your dress is fabulous.





I wondered if any one would do the black with a little red like the french priests....
Glad Hugh took the chance.  I like it.  Subtle and smart.




I love your crown Mindy.




There were three or four Joan of Arc inspired gowns.
This was by far the most subtle and perfect one.




Spectacular head piece.






THIS FABRIC!
Yes, it's the Sistine Chapel.  It's just glorious.







Her hat is the nativity.  
Can't say she is not on theme.






Greta is one of the few to wear something so Nun-y.
I love it.
Edgy Nun-y.





Some one had to be an angel.





I honestly do not know what this is supposed to represent.  But guess what?
I like it and find it very interesting.






Some one had to be the pope.







This is perhaps my favorite look of the night.  Nun-y but very new.
So young and interesting and on theme.





She just looks ethereal.






This is lovely too.
Ethereal in cardinal red. 
LOVE THE DETAILS.





Amal Clooney was a chair of the show.  Do you think her roses represent Mother Mary?







Stunning.



My very favorite head piece.
Magnificent.


What an amazing red carpet!

Gratitude and Thanks.

Last week I asked for help in finding and getting in to see a neurologist for Emma.
Within minutes of that request Crissy (WTM, QLCS friend) wrote me.  She reached out to her cousin who is a NP in Missouri.  Kay immediately responded and sent a name and some excellent information for Emma.
Friday Emma tried to contact the Dr. but he doesn't work on Friday.
On Monday, Emma texted me to say she made an appointment for May 2.

We are thrilled with the quick appointment and Emma looks forward to meeting the Dr.
(He notes on his bio page that his son has been in the Scripps spelling bee three times!)

We are grateful to Crissy for reaching out to her cousin...and so thankful that Kay was able to steer us in the right direction.  Love you friend.







Thankful.

Love
Donna

Captured moments





The girls had a bachelorette party on Thursday night.
Aren't these Instamax pictures great!?









Carolyn and Emma 
great friends and room mates.





Melinda and Emma






These precious girls are Janet's daughters!  
I'm so thankful they were there!  




Practice.




Rehearsal dinner.  Gino's East pizza. 
So delicious and casual!
Hi Patrick.  Hi Paulie.





phone snap of Emma's very pretty dress






Carolyn and Emma bring their neighbors from their apartments to church each week.
Tyrone is a great friend of theirs.





A very nice look at Emma's beautiful bouquet.




I was able to take a few pictures of Lorelei and her special cousin Poppy.
James picked out their sparkly shoes!!!







Boucher girls





Thank you Erin for sending me this fun picture and for doing Emma's makeup.
It was perfect for her.
Pictured; Carolyn and Whitney. 

I have a video or two I'm trying to upload.
I'll keep trying.



Emma and James are settling in, in Missouri.
If you have any pointers on how to get a specialist to return your calls,
please let me know.  Emma is trying to met with a neurologist in Columbia and can not get anyone to return a phone call.

It's important that she get in.
If you don't have any pointers, we would love prayers.

Thanks

This will be an everlasting love...



The only thing I tried to take a picture of during the service was the bride and groom exit.
Emma chose "This Will Be an Everlasting Love" to be played as they walked out.
You know, we always have a romantic comedy on the mind...

So I tried to film it on my phone and completely failed.  
Fortunately Emma's friend Melanie shot the following on her phone and sent it to me.
I love it so much!!!










After the service Zach Caddy went out back with the wedding party to take pictures.


I've been told he accidentally told James to kiss KATIE.



Again.
Notice Melinda



Everyone's expressions are priceless.



This is one fine photo.
Emma is looking at her friend Tyrone, I can tell. :o)




Pretty light in the balcony.








More kissing?

One week ago.

Still going strong.

James chose this song by John Legend for their first dance.


Where do we go, who knows?

But each day gets better, I just can't let her go

Oh no Each kiss gets sweeter I just can't leave her oh no
I'll write a song I've thought about it for far too long

But I've never had someone to sing about until I met her

Each day gets better
Nobody knows, nobody sees, nobody understands me like she

Now that I know what true love means, I just hope she stays with me
Where do we go, who knows?

But each day gets better, I just can't let her go

Oh no Each kiss gets sweeter I just can't leave her
She wants to breathe,

She wants to be where the grass is green

She wants to know how love's supposed to be
She wants it better,
I want to let her know she belongs right here with me
She's heard it all but I'll make her see
I'll make her fall, make her believe
I'll promise her that I'll never leave
Where do we go, who knows?

But each day gets better, I just can't let her go

Oh no Each kiss gets sweeter I just can't leave her
I just had to write a song about her

Tell her I don't wanna live without her

Tell her I would build my world around her
Deeper and deeper, sweeter and sweeter
I'll never leave her alone
Where do we go, who knows?

But each day gets better, I just can't let her go

Oh no Each kiss gets sweeter I just can't leave her, no




Thank you for sharing this happy time with me.
Love
Donna
