Nate Schmidt...that is all...

My new favorite player is Nate Schmidt. He's been a great player for the Vegas Golden Knights and I've never seen an interview where he wasn't smiling. He's also pretty articulate and seems happy to talk to the media.

I know you care what he has to say, but here's YouTube video of a interview from last fall right before training camp.

Happy Friday, y'all...and enjoy the weeknd, but always remember SOME GAVE ALL...

Fancy Royal Wedding Hats

My royal wedding hat started off as this...

And ended up like this...

It's not quite done though. Other things were going on at the gathering and I wasn't quite sure what else to do, so left it for later. I want to dress up the folded up part there by the feather, I just need to figure how to arrange more red beads and gold ribbon into something that looks okay.

I have a family wedding in a couple of weeks... Do I dare wear my new hat??

And here is the group in wedding hats. Most of them wore hats from the 40s and 50s that belonged to our hostess's mom. I have pics of most of those too. So lovely.

Congrats to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex

As I mentioned last week, JAG weekend coincided with the weekend of the Royal Wedding. Our hostess DVRd the wedding and we watched it later than the 6AM CST start time once everyone arrived.

It was a lovely wedding, but what really got me the most was the pure joy and delight on the faces of the bride and groom. The smiles and the greetings as they saw each other for the first time and were close enough to one another. The bit of conversations as they waited for the flower girls and page boys to complete their duties. The Duke thanking his father for escorting his bride partway down the knave. The smiles and the joy. Oh, I said that already, but goodness, they were both beaming, it warranted a repeat.

That's why I love reading romance and why I enjoy writing it--the hope that you can capture those feelings between two people. (Not that I'm particularly adept, but hope springs eternal.)

Just a few screen- capped moments...

The first real look.

Meghan says hi.

And, of course, the kiss.

TGIF you get, yeah? It's Friday. I'm happy about Friday. Who isn't?

But what's TGIM you ask? Thank goodness it's May...

Because it's the weekend of the annual JAG meet where we no longer worry much about JAG. As I mentioned a few posts ago, we're celebrating the royal wedding with hat decorating.

I'm excited to see these ladies again, hang out, visit, catch up on everyone's news. I'm a little excited about my hat too.

Have a great weekend!!

Dogs vs Cats

Rayna on the right, Karma on the left...sharing space relatively peaceably.

I have a dog, but I have to confess... I am a CAT person.

I prefer the soft fur and purring to coarse hair and barking.

I feel bad for my dog sometimes because there's a cat in the house and she tends to get more attention than my sweet doggy. I have nothing against Rayna or dogs in general, but I grew up with cats. I like cats. I love cats.

Are you a dog person or a cat person?
