No, not houses. Won't go through that least for another 6 months ;)

I am thinking of switching blog domain site. Webs has been very good for me to start off a couple years ago. It was just for me, to get my thoughts out and on paper/screen. But now that I have grown into blogging, I think it might be time to move over to a site with more exposure.

So I have been shopping around for a possible change. Will keep you updated.

So thankful for all of you

Friday, November 25, 2011

God gave me all of you...fiance, family, friends, even Lily(I'm such a cat lady) for all my up and downs and I am so thankful today and everyday you are all a part of my life. 

Happy Thanksgiving!


Haaave you met Baby Brianne :)

Thursday, October 27, 2011

So I'm going to do two things. One, ignore the fact the last post was so long ago. And two, ignore the fact the last post was about me getting into running again....

Moving right along.

I would like to introduce you to Baby Brianne.
It all started when we ventured to the house in Harmony to do a final cleaning of our belongings in anticipation for the closing. I noticed the large canvas of baby Brianne sitting next to the front door. I then thought it was necessary for baby Brianne to be looking out the window and got a kick out of it. 

Well, then the rest was history. Brian took a picture with it then I picked it up then I ran with it. Literally.

Commence baby Brianne's adventures around 3 Richline Road and perhaps beyond.....

Here's where it started to rain so we had to improvise.
Disclaimer: The actual 27 year old Brianne featured in this picture was not present for any of these pictures nor knew what mischief we were up to :)

(Did you get the How I met Your Mother reference? Anyone?)

Run, Baby, Run

Tuesday, October 11, 2011

Today I started running again. And it was ROUGH.

The past few months my running routine has faltered due to moving, packing, unpacking and just my excuses. So it's time to put aside the excuses and start the running again and getting back into shape.

To try to help my goals, I went in search of those cool apps that track your miles. But alas on my handy dandy Blackberry, no such luck. Therefore, my running routine has to be by minutes I guess. 

Todays time : 15 mins
How I felt: My lungs were on fire. Seriously. 

I'm still not sure if I should jump back in full force ie: every day right away orrrr slowly ie: every other day. The way my lungs responded today I am thinking the best way to go is with every other day. Or maybe a two day then rest situation. I will keep you updated. 

My theory is if I write about what I'm doing/not doing, it will make me more aware of how much of a bum I am being and it's time to run. 

Tweet tweet tweet

Friday, October 7, 2011

I am disappointed in myself. On one of my very infrequent requests to twitter the other day I noticed my statistics on the right side of the screen. I only have 250 tweets?! What?! This upsets me for various reasonsm the first is that I started my tweeting two years ago. One of the first to know what twitter was (on my small world anyways) and I have the least tweets! The second reason is my love for social media and social networks. Come one I blog and post on facebook about my blog. I have set up social media presence for a new companym serious disappointment. Therefore, I am on a mission to get to 1,000 tweets by the time Christmas comes. And I must say I have made a serious dent in the past few days. Posting useless information, my thoughts and twitpics. I'm back Twitter, with a vengeance!

There's Gotta be Something More...

Monday, October 3, 2011

I get home 7:30 the house is dirty, but it can wait
Yeah, 'cause right now I need some downtime
To drink some red wine and celebrate
Armageddon could be knocking at my door
But I ain't gonna answer that's for sure.
There's gotta be something, gotta be something more!

Heard this song on my way home and it describes my mood and day perfectly today.


Love Sugarland.

Happy October!

Sunday, October 2, 2011

Welcome to October!

The leaves are changing, the chill is in the air, Halloween is on its way and the most important of all...Playoff Baseball of courseee. First Yankee game was postponed last night due to rain but it continues tonight. Which will of course be a win no doubt.

But the beginning of October also starts another chain of events because soon comes Thanksgiving, Christmas and my best friends wedding!!!

So the change of seasons has a lot of meaning this year and I am very excited to welcome it with pumpkin coffees and apple spice air fresheners. Yes, that is my favorite thing about fall. 

Today is also the beginning of the end for the old choldhood house. I have been out since July but we have finally sold it and are waiting for the clothes. Commence going through boxes of childhood memories, repacking, unpacking and organizing. It's bittersweet but it is time to move on from the house and I know my mom couldn't agree more. 

So I will be back when the dust has settled and I can emerge from the piles of boxes.

~There is no season when such pleasant and sunny spots may be lighted on, and produce so pleasant an effect on
the feelings, as now in October.~

Transformers Friday!

Friday, September 30, 2011

Today is the day,
It is Transformers Friday...the day Transformers 3 comes out!

If you don't know my odd obsession with Transformers, now you do. I could watch them over and over again. And yes, Shia LeBouf might have something to do with it. There's something that's stayed with me since Even Stevens. Oh Ren. 

Here's my other theory why I have a strange obsession with this movie. The voice of Optimus Prime was the voice of Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh. Aka. one of my faves from Disney when I was growing up. Watched it all the time and always felt so bad for the gloomy guy. So it seems maybe the voice brings me back to those carefree days. That could be just what it is.

Nonetheless, I love these movies and I can't wait to get the third one.


Hmm, will this work?

Oh Netflix

Monday, September 19, 2011

It is more than time for me to give my two sense into this whole Netflix situation. Especially after the email I received from Netflix's own CEO.

It went a little something like this...
"I messed up. I owe you an explanation.

It is clear from the feedback over the past two months that many members felt we lacked respect and humility in the way we announced the separation of DVD and streaming and the price changes. That was certainly not our intent, and I offer my sincere apology. Let me explain what we are doing.
So we realized that streaming and DVD by mail are really becoming two different businesses, with very different cost structures, that need to be marketed differently, and we need to let each grow and operate independently.

It’s hard to write this after over 10 years of mailing DVDs with pride, but we think it is necessary: In a few weeks, we will rename our DVD by mail service to “Qwikster”. We chose the name Qwikster because it refers to quick delivery. We will keep the name “Netflix” for streaming."

To summarize...the Netflix we have grown to love will now be Qwikster and the Netflix will only apply to the streaming protion. Two different businesses. Two different websites. Two different ques. 

The question being...why would I want to have this hassle of having to access two different sites instead of the one? Oh, Netflix/Qwikster you did not think this through.

Their estimated subscribers dropped 10,000 in the last month...I have a feeling it will go down even more after this announcement. I will be one of them.

Making my day better..

I think it's the beat or the carefree nature of the song but it helped my terrible day turn around. Kind of an airy sound...


Remembering 9/11

Sunday, September 11, 2011

Where were you when the world stopped turning, that September day...

We all will never forget this day ten years ago. Where we were, what we were doing and the shock of what was happening. 

Everyone remembers where they were that day. Everyone's lives were changed that day. No one will ever forget what they watched unfold on their tv time and time again still in disbelief. 

We won't forget all the lives that were lost that fateful day. All the people that selflessly gave their lives. We extend our thoughts and prayers to the thousands of families that said their last goodbyes to their family memebers that morning never to see them again.

Today is about remembering all those lives. Reflecting back on the past ten years from that day and how we have come together as a country. Our patriotism louder than ever. 

Today we also thank all the brave men and women that continue the selfless act everyday fighting for our freedom. Protecting our country. We remember all the lives lost in battle and are thankful for the freedom we have everyday. 

"The attacks of September 11th were intended to break our spirit. Instead we have emerged stronger and more unified. We feel renewed devotion to the principles of political, economic and religious freedom, the rule of law and respect for human life. We are more determined than ever to live our lives in freedom."

Let's Talk about my Summer

Thursday, September 8, 2011

As the summer comes to a close and the chill begins to set in the air, I must reflect on my incredibly wonderful, life changing, awesome summer. 

It started with a Memorial Day weekend spent at home...nothing too exciting and very ordinary. Nothing indicative of what was to come. I searched for apartments and at the end of June a new home was found for me. July was spent moving and unpacking for sure.

I have mostly settled in..just adjusting to bills and budgets which are not fun at all. It feels so nice to have my own place to call my home. To be able to decorate and have friends and family over and to just be in someplace that is new. Friends and family came over to check out the new place and I was more than happy to share it.

Then of course August brought the most life changing experience...the big engagement. I'm getting married!! still love to say that hehe But it will not be for a little bit due to us saving for the wedding and preparing for our life together. 
I am so excited for this next chapter of our lives to begin!

The past almost month has been simply amazing to say the least. Us being able to celebrate our engagement all week in Disney was amazing and all the love and support we have gotten from family and friends. The dinners, cards and gifts were more than expected but loved. The phone calls and texts allowing me to relive that moment were the best and I am very thankful for all the love we received.

The summer also included multiple engagements in our circle of friends, one in May and another in July. A wedding in August and more to come the next year! Wine nights, dinners and family/friend gatherings all included in this summer and the very few beach trips. And as we said au revoir to summer the last two days were spent surrounded by family, friends and fiance :D

Although this has been an amazing summer it has also been bittersweet. As I said two large life experience happened within the past two months and the abscence of my mom did not go unnoticed. The move was the first large experience my mom hasn't been here for. My graduation I was still grieving so it was more numb. But this time I was aware. Aware that she should have been here bossing me around and sharing in the moving process and see how I have blossomed. 

She should have been my first call after the engagement to share in my exciting news and the first person I would see after the engagement to show off the ring. All little girls dream of their wedding and their mom helping them tie their dress and crying when it's put on and just being there for the whole experience and I won't have it. Losing your mom is a neverending grieving process. At every stage of my life I feel/will feel my mom's abscence. But I know she is here with me..helping me and sharing in my joy.

Ready to end the year with many more memories!

Oh Baby!

Sunday, September 4, 2011

This October we get to welcome a wonderful little girl into our crazy family and we couldn't be happier!

It has been some time since a little bundle of joy has made its way into the Rush family so we of course had to welcome this addition in style, with a proper baby shower.
The glowing momma to be and her cute baby bump

There was food, laughs and just a wonderful time.

And of course gifts to welcome the little girl!

We can't wait to see you baby Myrtle!!

~A baby is an angel whose wings decrease as his legs increase~

It's a love just say YES :)

I'm Engagedddd!!! :lol:

And here's a quick rundown of the amazing vacation and engagement!

It was the first day of our vacation in Disney and we decided to go to Magic Kingdom first.

(how perfect this is the first picture.."Let the Memories Begin...")

We had dinner reservations at Cinderella's Castle. I was obviously super excited about this because it was a character dinner so I would get to meet all the princesses!
Dinner was delish and we had a wonderful view of the fireworks from our window at dinner.

And I thought the night couldn't get any better after I met Belle...Boy was I wrong!

My wonderful prince asked me to marry him in front of Cinderella's Castle. How perfect, right? And I of course said yes!!

I love my fiancé and couldn't be more happy and excited to spend my life with him!

It was a perfect week and it so nice to be able to celebrate our engagement in Disney for the whole week, just the two of us. Best vacation ever.

~When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible. ~

Happily Ever After!

Here's a hint....


Tuesday, August 9, 2011

Whoa momma. It has indeed been awhile. Thanks to my wonderful boyfriend for telling me how much I've been slacking 

Well a lot has happened since my last little post. I found a new place and moved in!

Moving day was July 9 and I had a wonderful team to help me load and unload. Minimal complaining included ;)

and this was the mess that was left...

So definitely still a work in progress but I am getting there. As I get more unpacked and organized I will update pictures. So pretty much a few months from now..or so it feels.

Not much else to really update other than the big move. Job is going but right now I am most looking forward to vacation next week. 

I AM GOING TO DISNEY WORLDDDDDD!!! I am so beyond excited. 5 days with Minnie and Mickey and of course all the princesses. Whooooo!! Not to mention a week away from work. Ahhh a breather. 

Lily is adjusting to the new place. We have had our obstacles trying to get her acclimated but I think very soon she will be very comfortable here. She wasn't sure about the smaller space at first but she is finding places she can go to hide and just sleep. So it won't be long until the behavior issues are gone.

I will definitely keep up with this much more now. I had been consumed with moving and unpacking and work but as it starts to slow down I will have more time. 


Wednesday, July 6, 2011

Nope, not me! hahah

But one of my best friends Kristen is engaged to the love of her life and I couldn't be happier! I have been waiting for this day for awhile. Yes, I am aware how crazy that sounds but it's ok. I just love her and know they love each other and I couldn't be more excited!

Here's to my friend, engaged to her betrothed and so in love :)

What's the reason?

Tuesday, July 5, 2011

"Everything happens for a reason"

Things fall apart so better things can fall in place, etc., etc.

These quotes are pretty much things I firmly believe in...for the most part. All my life I have been through difficult things that when I look back I say oh yes that's why it happened. It makes sense. 

But the one time that trips me up is losing my mom. There is no reason to this. Why can't my mom be here for the next 20 years of my life? Why couldn't she see me graduate college? Why won't she be here when I move into my new apartment?

I don't think there will ever be a reason for this part of my life. I have become a stronger person, yes. But I don't see how losing my mom can make that the reason. She was a strong person. I learned from her. She was my rock. 

This is something that has been affecting me lately because of the big move. I am leaving my only home to start over in a new place and all I want to do is stand her and stomp my feet like a little child because it's not fair I can't fight with my mom over which way to put my curtains. 

I will get through this just something I needed to talk about and get my feelings out there. 

“The reason people find it so hard to be happy is that they always see the past better than it was, the present worse than it is, and the future less resolved than it will be”

Happy 4th of July!

Monday, July 4, 2011

This day we are all thankful for our freedom and we are the home of the free because of the brave. I'm proud to be an American and thank everyone who has given me my freedom.

My Gram and Poppy's House?

Saturday, June 18, 2011

How many of us love those moments that take us back to those good ole' time memories? Well, the answer is of course everyone. I was actually fortunate enough today to have that moment. I took a visit to a possible apartment(actually a duplex) that was labeled as 'historic.' 

It was indeed historic. It reminded me of my Grammy and Poppy's house when I was young. The same fireplace that is shaped like a fireplace but is replaced by a wall. Then there are the closets that creak open with the sliding lock. And who can forget the brown hardwood floors and metal, wobbly doorknobs? And then I was able to see the same peeling windows that I crushed my thumb in and told the white lie that "I didn't actually open it Grammy like you specifically said not to do, I hit my thumb on a nail."  Yea, like she fell for that one. Oh, and I can't forget no air conditiong and creepy basement.

This obviously wasn't the place for me but it definitely brought back some great memories. For myself, sister and uncle. 
Here's a glimpse :)

a disappointing house search today but I'm sure the next one might be it. Fingers crossed!

Rainy Days

Tuesday, June 14, 2011

I just want to take some time and give my appreciation for rainy days.

We might knock them here and there for ruining plans or making it miserable out. But we all fail to see that rainy days give us an easy out. You might then ask, "What in the heck do you mean?"

Well, that is a very good question. As I sit here on my day off it is indeed a rainy day. It went from cloudy to rainy but it is a rainy day nonetheless. This day of rain and clouds made for the perfect lounging day. So that is what I did. And my excuse can just simply be, it was a rainy day.

Rainy days are meant to be lazy and gloomy. Meant to put you in this weird funk. But it also a time when you can actually take a break and breathe. When the suns out we are all eager to be on our way, conquer the day, be in a hurry as we should because it's bright and beautiful out. That all changes on rainy days.

The turtle slow pace sets in. The 'ah' moment is captured. The moment that you actually can sit there and breathe because it's raining. You aren't expected to be in a hurry and conquer the day. Or not as much in a hastened space. These days allow us a breather of sorts. These are the lazy, unproductive days that we as, technologically tuned in 24/7, in a hurry, species desperately need every once in awhile. When there are cobwebs in our ears, oh it's ok it's raining. Or the I didn't go out and do all the 250 errands I had today but it's ok because it's raining.

However, I don't mean to imply that your mood should match the weather. Still smile, laugh and just enjoy the laziness of what a rainy day brings. Take time with your coffee and your morning routine. Why? Because it's raining! Grab some rarely seen takeout for dinner. Why? Because it's raining! 

~The best thing one can do when it's raining is to let it rain. ~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Keepin' my cool

Friday, June 10, 2011

The temperature has been soaring on the East coast for the past two days. Only right to find ways to keep things cool. But what a more perfect time to talk about keeping your cool untemperature related.

As mentioned in my previous post, work has been hectic the past few weeks with the new department opening and adjusting to new roles and routines. Times like these can be stressful and it can be hard to not let it get to you. Well for me there were times when I wanted to lose it but apparently I am very well at disguising that.

I was recently complimented on my ability to keep my cool during stressful situations. I never would have picked this out as one of my strengths but as soon as it was brought to my attention I realized that it most certainly is. I was also asked what's my secret. (Semi-sarcastic but a thinking point nonetheless.) What enables me to keep my cool around others, especially in the workplace?

When thinking into that question later, the answer is simple. MY LIFE. 

Given a snapshot of my life and the experiences I have been through are all the explanation you need. Every curveball and cliche has been thrown at me from the time I was little.

Cancer stricken grandmother, heartbroken grandfather, dad leaving, divorce, pinching pennies, working 3 jobs, losing my mother. and of course the little sitautions of break-ups and broken hearts and friendships.

It made me adaptable and used to the fact that no matter what plan you have for how things should go and how you want them to go, the universe has the ultimate say. 

What happens, happens and there isn't much you can do about it. You only have certain control over what life hands you. But in the end you have complete control over how you react to it. So why sit there all stressed out, yelling and screaming, raising your blood pressure when you have the option to be calm and know that things will work themselves out the best that the situation allows.  Almost like the saying, "Don't cry over spilled milk." except you are trying so hard to prevent the spilled milk, but it spills anyway and you are all upset over the fact that it didn't go according to the plan of not spilling the milk. (hope you follow that was a little out there.)

I no longer cry over the plan to not spill the milk. Any problems, situations that are thrown my way now are very minor compared to what I have been handed in the biger picture of life. My theory is, If I got through the worst I can get through______. (fill in the blank)  Nothing is perfect. No plan goes unflawed and if you can find me one I will pay you a million dollars that I don't even have. That's how I know it doesn't happen. 

You just always have to remember there’s some sort of plan at work. For me, it’s probably my mom throwing the curveballs at me. But whatever keeps coming my way I’m ready for it.

Time for everyone to just go with the flow and not work themselves up over every perfect plan you have in place. Be excited about what’s coming. Embrace it. Let be what will be and remember C’EST LA VIE!

Here's a little reminder...way back when.


Oh hello...

Wednesday, June 8, 2011

Let me introduce myself...

I am the blogger that left this blog for about 3 weeks. Once again an oops. Life just gets going and there is no time to stop. On that note though, not much has really changed.

My job has been keeping me going for the majority of the past 3 weeks. Opening up my new department required a lot of my time, brainwork and energy. Which is why my notes were mostly filled with the couch, movie, bed program. But everything went off without a (large) hitch a week ago and I have finally come out of the settling dirt. Getting back into my usual roles.

Plus side from the past 3 weeks...the world didn't end. So we are all still here. At least until October when we play these shenanigans all over again. 

Apartment hunting has been a strain. Found a nice place but it wasn't meant to be I guess. So upward and onward. No time to dwell on the could have been. 

Friends and family have adorned my past month and adventures were had. Yankee games, beach, movies and cook outs. I promise my nex time on here won't be a month from now...

I love Diet Coke

Wednesday, May 18, 2011

Anyone that knows me, knows my slight obsession with Diet Coke. I have at least a sip once a day. I could cut back but then what's the fun in that? 

And according to a recent study, it seems that I am not the only one that loves their Diet Coke. The top 10 of the nation's most sold sodas was recently released and Diet Coke has finally come out over Pepsi. It seems Coke wins, Diet or not.

Sitting at number 1 is Coke, same as 10 years ago. Then right behind it is Diet Coke, beating out Pepsi. 

The trend in the past 10 years seems to be heading more towards Diet sodas and that could be because of the American peoples trend towards diets in general. People are counting calories more and more and especially watching sugar since the rise of Type II diabetes.

Not to mention that Diet Coke has introduced many favors. These include lemon, vanilla, cherry and lime.

No 5 and 6 have also done a flip-flop in the past decade. Dr. Pepper has come out over Sprite in 2010. This could show the declining trend for caffeine free soda. So amny people run around until they can't run anymore today. Multi-tasking their way through the day. Many people, myself included, need that extra caffeine to be able to conitnue through the day. So why drink caffeine free soda when you can have one that could give you a pick me up?

That's why Caffeine Free Diet Coke fell out of the top ten and was replaced by Diet Dr. Pepper. America runs on caffeine.

See here for the full results. I am going to go enjoy my Diet Coke.

Wear No Pants Today and Eat that Cake

Friday, May 6, 2011

So it seems May has a lot of fun,official and unofficial, themed days.

This was yesterday and I hope everyone got to sip a little bit of a margarita to celebrate this holiday.

Now today. May 6.
 National Nurses Day- This day kicks of National Nurses week until it culminates on Flornece Nightingales birthday. So today is a day to honor all the nurses in your life and arpund the world that work hard everyday. 

Take a sip of your favorite drink today. Whether it be iced tea, milk or some Diet Coke. You know my Diet Coke is already ready fpr me to enjoy.


Put away those calorite counters. Go out and buy that chocolate cake. No diets today. Let's all be free! After all, if it's no diet day we have to oblidge.

And now for my favorite....


That's right. Today is the day where you are supposed to lose the pants and wear your thickest, most repsectable boxers or undergarments. It is meant for humor and freedom and I don't think it's a coincidence it's so close to Cinco de Mayo. Now this is one worth participating in. Think of the look you'll get when you show up to your meeting in boxers.

Today is a super fun day. Everyone might ignore these kinds of undeclared holidays but I think it helps make life fun. Turns it up a bit. So today I know I will be calling my aunt to thank her for being an amazing nurse, while I sip my Diet Coke, eating some cookies all the while not wearing pants.

Enjoy your May 6!

Song of the Day

Monday, May 2, 2011

This popped into my head today and I actually really like this song. Definitely a song for the day.

May Day!

Sunday, May 1, 2011

No, we aren't crashing and in need of immediate assistance. Today is just the first of May!
Which is super exciting because well, warm weather is coming :) Then comes summer...(Trying not conjure the image of bathing suit season in my head..)

Anyways, it is the first of May. Less than a month until Memorial Day, the unoffical start to the summer and it could not have been a more beautiful day. Hope everyone had a chance to enjoy the gorgeous sunshine today!

And since I did remind myslef how close bathing suit really is I will now be going to run a few miles...

~The world's favorite season is the spring.All things seem possible in May~

Royal Wedding Obsession

Saturday, April 30, 2011

Meet the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
Married yesterday at around 11:20 London time, 6:20 our time.

My alarm sounded around 4:45 yesterday morning to signal the start of the royal wedding for me. Turning on the tv, Prince William was starting to make his way to Westminster Abbey with Harry riding along with him.  Their entrance into the church, chatting with guests along the way.

Cozied in my bed, I watched the procession of cars and then it was finally time for Kate Middleton to make her appearance. Glimpsing her in her veil in the car, it looked like a delicate lace top of her wedding dress. That ride seemed even longer than the others as the anticipation of whether she had a train or no train and other details of the dress ate away.

Emerging from the car amongst cheers and hollers from the crowd, Kate Middleton dazzled in a low cut white dress with lace sleeves followed by an 8 foot train. There it was. The dress we had all been waiting for. Gorgeous.

The moment I was waiting the most for was almost there. I wanted to see William when he saw Kate for the first time. Turns out tradition in England is that he is allowed to see her once she makes her way down the aisle and is to the alter. There he turned toward her and said (or so I gather from my lip reading skills.)"You look beautiful." Aww so precious.

For the next 10 minutes they exchanged vows where they promised to love each other until death do them part. And William placed a ring on Kte's finger but his was visibly missing. turns out William will not be wearing a wedding ring which is quite interesting. They were pronounced husband and wife, without a kiss. Because as we all knew the kiss was coming at 8:25. Wonder how that was waiting two hours to kiss your new wife/husband. 

I then took a brief nap around 6:20 until 6:50 as the rest of the ceremony finished. I awoke just in time to see them emerge from the chambers and make their way back down the aisle as husband and wife. Kate was as poised as ever and beaming. William had a brief smile here and there. 

They were then taken by carriage  to Buckingham Palace through the streets of England. All the well wishers were lining the streets cheering on the newly married couple.  

There was a brief hiatus as the couple took their official photographs inside the palace where I chose this time to hurridly get through my pre-work routine so that I would not miss that kiss. 

At exactly 8:25 Kate and William emerged onto the balcony of Buckingham Palace to millions of onlookers prompting Kate to be visibly seen saying, "Oh wow." The Queen, Prince Charles, Camilla, Prince Harry, Pippa, the Middleton's and the rest of the wedding party sauntered out behind the couple. I was anticipating the kiss and then in a flash, it happened. I say flash because it was a simple quick peck on the lips. It was a weak kiss but the news casters set the stage for that all too brief kiss.

London coorespondants were just explaining a few minutes before how much William detested PDA. That is why you rarely see them kissing in public or even holding hands. He prefers that kind of affection behind closed doors without cameras. So bets were placed just how short the kiss would seeing as there were not just a few people watching but literally millions. The largest bets were on the one second kiss, which seems was the big winner.

The crowd pleaded for more though and the couple willing complied. A second kiss! This time at least 2 or 3 seconds and afterwards both look giddy and love struck. One of the best shots of the day. 

This is what made the Royal Wedding so fascinating. They are both clearly so in love with each other and so ready to be married. It was apparent in their faces all day and the way they looked at each other. (Clearly, I love love :))

It was also shown with the two kisses that they are actually quite normal. William knows he has some royal duties but also knows what he wants and is his own person. Kate is the same way. It was a very relaxed wedding where she chose the flowers on display and they both chose their own vows and music. And to even further the point of how young, in love and just like the everyday newlyweds they truly are, William and Kate left Buckingham Palace in a convertible covered with just married paraphanalia. The kind you or I would have as we drove off from our wedding. 

They then had their receptions later in the night with close friends and family. They slipped out of their formal royal wedding attire and into more comfortable outifts. I'm sure it allowed them to get their "funk" on. (Reference to a London newscaster that said "How does the US say it? Get your funk on?") 

I haven't stopped reading/watching/thinking about the Royal Wedding and Kate and William. They are just so cute and everyone loves a good fairytale. Especially me. PEOPLE, US WEEKLY, RADARONLINE, 20/20, E!, TLC. You name it, I've watched it or read it. JUST. CANT. GET. ENOUGH.

Now to see where they go on their honeymoon...
