You guys, he’s ready to stay up… are YOU?
SO! It’s 3pm EST and I’ve got waaaaay too many puppy pics going on in this post for you. But I promise there’s weddingy stuff packed in here, too. High kick, woot!
And by the way, YES, that’s a remote in his hand, yes, HE put it there, and yes, you bet he’s staying up. He’s the Knotty Puppy; his business is weddings-by-proxy. Of course he’s staying up. You think he’d miss “The Wedding of the Century (or so they say)?” He also has a pretty big crush on Kate Catherine Middleton Windsor-knot.
At 5am-ish, he’s going to do his stretches…
And watch the shiz outta that wedding. Watch the godforsaken SHIZ out of it!
In other news, the weather is being a bit of a bridezilla today, crying intermittently for no reason and then being all warm and pretty on the turn of a hat. Ah well, you just roll with it. In fact, I feel pretty inspired by all this sky fickleness, so I’ve decided that today’s post should be equally as random. Because I like competing, even with the sky.
But first, here’s a peek (← that’s how it’s spelled, world) into life with McPuppyPants these days. He’s slowly growing up, and his adorable quirks are developing into full blown personality traits…
You guys, my feet have NEVER BEEN CLEANER.
Here’s how he likes to spend most of his time… right up on us, or right up against us, nuzzle-style:
Or having a staring contest with the couch. I actually don’t know who wins these, but they do end.
Or looking like Homer Simpson:
Or galloping like so many horses:
Or lounging on the couch watching the tele…
And not wanting to be bothered by a camera in his face whilst doing it:
Let’s getting weddingy for a bit, shall we? Here’s a little FYI as far as the *Big Moments* go, if you’re following the Royal Wedding (barf paired with I wish it was my wedding paired with I hate the idea of wearing mostly pantsuits for the rest of my life):
Kate Middleton will be stepping into Westminster Abbey at 6am EST, and William & Kate will kiss at 8:25am EST. I think we can all manage to get up n’ adam for that last one, amirite?
And now, here’s a random note to all my beautiful brides out there in the ether. As you continue planning your wedding, whenever you start to get frustrated/frazzled/fed-up over even the littlest things, just try to remember these facts:
1. at least you don’t have to shake a thousand hands a day for the rest of your life, even when you’re on your period or have a really bad headache, or are just *really not feeling like shaking 1000 hands today*
2. at least you don’t have to trade in your wardrobe for a few pretty dresses and a lot of sensible suits.
3. at least you don’t have to worry about stupid shiz like this being made with your face on it.
Oh, fun fact, completely unrelated: I found out today, ON THE REALSIES, that pregnant women and their honeys should have absolutely no fear whatsoever about having the sex. You see, the cervix separates your growing baby from his growing p… omgdidijustwritethat?
… AND NOW…
Stuff you should totally consider for your wedding day, etsy-edition. (Ok so I think I officially win the randomness title for today, right? EAT ME, SKY.)
The Ophelia, a black tulle bandeau veil, and The Sabine, a large, layered hair flower, both crafted by Vendor Love member Serephine and lovingly photographed by Kali Lu Photo, make my serotonin levels skyrocket and have become new favorites in the veil category of my heart.
I love the super-bohemian look of these mini veils. Your photos would be bonkers.
Next up, a super simple, super gorg Pearl Necklace In Black Satin Ribbon, inspired by Carrie Bradshaw, or whatevs.
Love the cream one, too.
Just do me a favor – don’t wear those sheer mini gloves like Skinnyarms McThickfingers. Looks terrible. Pick finger-fitting gloves, so your fingers don’t look like bleached sausages.

Kitschycutetastic, am I correct? I know I am, don’t answer that.
on a final note, DON’T BUY THIS:
That’s an Ahoy My Hearties Beret. Why does this exist? Seriously, I’m asking. Obviously someone’s buying it. Can I meet you? We should lunch. We could probably teach one another so much.
OK SO, who’s getting up early/staying up late to watch this Royal Wedding business go down, live-style? And really, should I? Tivo’ing it is soooo tempting.
