Tea and Scones, Anyone?

I have a little confession to make....  I'm one of those people who is actually sort of a teeny tiny bit excited about watching the royal wedding. 

Of course it's on the grounds that it's a historical event!!!

Well, um, for the most part it is.  Really, though, how many other future kings of England will I get to see married in my lifetime?  Okay, possibly a couple, but still...

Historical significance aside, I also just happen to love weddings.  It doesn't matter whose it is... a friend's wedding, a stranger's wedding, whatever... I just love seeing the pictures, checking out the dress, checking out the details, and seeing the glowing look of the happy couple.  This wedding just so happens to add an extra element to all of that...  The bride is becoming a flippin' princess! (I just felt like that word should be pink... I blame Barbie.)

If there's a single girl around who says she hasn't at least daydreamed an eensy weensy bit about becoming a princess (not counting the cynical people who find fault with everything or our ultra feminist friends who think fairy tales are sick and place women beneath men as possessions), she's lying.  We have all thought about it at least a time or two.  I'm just looking at this as a real, live Cinderella wedding, and I'm curious to see it!  (Add to that, I live on a rock in the middle of the Pacific, and when Kent leaves, my TV rarely leaves TLC or Hallmark channel, so I haven't been inundated with the overwhelming coverage that everyone else on the mainland has.)

Anyhoo... I know everyone has been "hating" on the royal wedding lately, so I feel a little silly making this confession.  If I'm not honest, though, what's the point?  I'm not being me.  :)  So here you have it.  I'm staying up tonight to watch.  Aaaaand.... I'm making-scones-and-drinking-tea....

Yeah, I said it.  I want to be a little festive.  (Not to mention it will fill some lonely evening hours)  I'm going to make some tea (nice hot tea, not good cold sweet tea like back home) and make some scones to enjoy.  I'll get the added bonus of having scones for breakfast over the weekend!  I think it's a pretty good deal.

I'm planning on making these

Yum!  They are cranberry orange scones, and I can't wait to give them a try!  I'll let you guys know how they turn out.  

Maybe I'm a little crazy, but I like to bake, I like tea, and I like weddings, so why not?  :)  Am I the only one, or is anyone else the least bit interested in the royal wedding?  Any plans to watch? Wear hats? Bake some scones?  

Happy Thursday!


  1. Wow, I didn't even know it was today. I hope I didn't miss it! What a cute idea making tea and scones! I don't have the stuff to make scones, but I can sure make some tea!

    Umm oh yea I love royal weddings too, I wanna be a princess!! (Secretly, I wanted to marry Prince William when I was in the 7th grade or something.)

  2. Haha! So glad I'm not alone... Technically the wedding is Friday, but the coverage starts at like 4AM east coast time, which means it's 10PM my time, so for me, it's "today."


I love getting your comments! Put a smile on my face and show me some love. :-)
