Oh Boy, Oh Boy: The #royalbaby is here!

After spending today
trolling around St. Mary's Lindo Wing 
in the (year's hottest) heat,
we are proud to report:

Viola's arranged marriage 
is officially on track
and we are excited to start 
our play dates at Kensington.

We are now just waiting for Royal approval
(or perhaps, recognition of our existance)
to start the path to the altar.

Cheers to the safe arrival of
HRH Prince Charming.

(Who, at the time of posting, has not yet had his name announced.)

Either way, I have a feeling 
it will go swell with Viola.

Check out a few of the instagrams snapped 
from our day at St. Mary's.

My partner-in-crime, Amber. :)

Someone finally gave up
and wanted to get the heck out of the heat...

But I won't name names. 

And at last-
the news breaks!

It's a Prince.
All around the world,
every little girl's heart just skipped a beat.

Okay, fine... maybe not,
but their mom's did
faster than Carol Middleton can say
"Married Up."


Don't miss out on my next royal "encounter"
(like my time at the Royal Wedding or at the King James Bible Anniversary Service)
follow me on Instagram to keep up with all the fun live.

It's a Pretty Big Day: Baby Royal On The Way.

I think the two babies I'm carrying
are the most important children in the world.

I enjoy the world stopping everything
and celebrating the resplendent fruit of my uterus.

with today's big news
coming from St. James Palace,
I'm happy to share the limelight.


Who knows when this little bundle of royal goodness is due
(as no due dates have been released yet),
but I think it's safe to say:
I'll be spending my summer
doing circles around Kensington Gardens
trying to shed some baby weight...
and in a pathetically obvious attempt
to bump into the happy little family.

PS. Have you heard the crazy rumor
that her hospitalizing condition, hyperemesis gravidarum, 
is more common in mothers carrying twins?

Well, I had never heard of it before-
which makes me think people are slightly overreacting.

(Remember the whole "peanut butter" absurdity last fall?)

Though, if it were in fact true-
I can't say that I'd be mad to learn
that we were both carrying two babies.

It'd just align our trajectory of being friends all the closer...
and make the two of us, well, twins.

Emotions, screaming, fanfare welcome below.

I want to be cool about all of this, but I'm going to fail miserably.

Downton Abbey: Back in Britain

Some of my stateside friends
were bemoaning the airing 
of Downton Abbey's Season Three premier 
here in the UK last night.

Yeah, sucks to be you America.

I'm totally kidding,
 I love America...
but it is tragic that you won't have it
until several months down the line.

When I am into a series,
whether it is book or film,
I absolutely hate when people drop spoilers.

{Wouldn't that be soooo Edith of me?}

When someone is a step ahead of me in reading or watching 
and starts a sentence with the phrase,
"I'm not giving anything away, BUT.... "
it makes me fussy.

Because, as well all know, they actually DO give something away.

With that perspective in mind,
I'm going to do my very best to keep quiet 
on the weekly happenings of Downton
until my American friends can catch up.

So since I can't tell you any details,
I'll just tell you...
the awesomeness that you fell in love with
from Seasons 1 & 2,
well... it's still there.

My mom was here watching it with me 
and we were in the zone.

You have good things waiting for you.

While you're dreaming of Season 3,
here are some dreamy shots of my favorite, Lady Mary Crawley.

Di-Namic Duo: Naomi & Diana

So you remember my friend, Holly, that tried on jeans
next to Kate Middleton the other day?

Well, in my excitement over her GAP encounter,
I didn't even mention the fact that 
the night before she posted a picture
of the new Naomi Watts movie
being filmed outside her house.

Typically this would be top priority...
but the Duchess trumps film crews.

It's a fact.

Anyway, they were literally outside her window
shooting a scene for the new movie.

You know, the one where Naomi Watts 
is attempting to relive the tragic last two years
of Princess Diana's life.

Those are some dyed-satin pumps I would not want to try to fill.

But have you seen the pictures of Watts in character?

It's pretty amazing.

Hopefully, the directors and writers are paying as much attention to detail
as wardrobe is at accurately recreating Lady Di's last few years.

I can't wait.

And in the meantime,
since the movie won't be released until 2013 ,
I'll be stalking my friend Holly 
just in case she bumps into anymore amazing situations.

Heads or Tails? Karl Lagerfield vs Pippa

It's time for a little celebrity-royal gossip.

Did you hear what Chanel's Karl Lagerfield said about Pippa Middleton?

In a recent interview the UK's Sun,
he gushed on the Duchess of Cambridge's silhouette
and being "the right girl for that boy."

But her sister didn't get the same affection from the famed designer.

"On the other hand, her sister struggles," Chanel's famous designer said to the sun.
"I don't like the sister's face. She should only show her back."

Oh, Karl.

(Said in a Harriet Winslow voice.)

When will you learn?

After slamming Adele for being "a little too fat" early this year,
you would think you would have picked up a lesson.

One thing I can guess for certain after this that you won't see
the Duchess of Cambridge sitting cozy with Karl's beloved, Victoria Beckham,
 at any Chanel shows in the near future.

Thoughts? Opinions?

Personally, I actually think it's lame how Pippa 
runs around town like she is a big-time celebrity after doing... well, nothing,
but I'm not sure that is entirely her fault.

Until the public made her butt an topic of international attention,
she was cool playing it quiet on the sidelines.

Now it's your turn, go.
