Thank Goodness It's ROYAL Friday!

Congratulations to Prince William & Kate Middleton!

Who woke up this to watch this royal event? I didn't... that's what hulu or YouTube is for. :)

At the crack of dawn, Prince William and Kate Middleton got married at London's Westminister Abbey. This event may have costed the British economy over 50 billion dollars. Are they crazy!?

Who’s in: the highlights:
The Beckhams - Soccer star and robot fashion icon, David and Victoria Beckham, will tote their brood to Buckingham Palace, after the David and the Prince apparently “got along like a house on fire” during the South African World Cup. That sounds, great, we think.

Guy Richie - Director of thickly accented dialog and ex-husband of Madonna, Guy Richie, owns Prince William’s favorite watering hole, The Punch Bowl. Tip your bartender, you know?

Elton John - As a friend of the groom’s mother, Princess Diana, Sir Elton will most definitely be on the guest list. When asked by BBC if he is to perform, John responded, “I will probably be busking outside.” (Busking = performing in a public place, usually for money. English English is hard.”)

Joss Stone - Remember her?

Mr. Bean - Otherwise known as Rowan Atkinson.

David Cameron - the current prime minister

Tiggy Legge-Bourke - Prince William’s old nanny, with the best potential dog name, ever.

Who’s out: the highlights:

Tony and Cherie Blair - Former British prime minister and wife. Tony notably clashed with the Royal Family on several affairs.

Gordon and Sarah Brown - Former British prime minister and wife. Official reason for rejection: the two were never formally Knights of Garter. Don’t you love the Brits?

Barack and Michelle Obama - The American president did not receive an invitation. Sources speculate this is due to the heightened security cost his presence would require.

Sarah “Fergie” Ferguson - Ex-wife of Prince Andrew was the only one in the family who did not get a gold-embossed invitation, sources saying she would stir up too much “drama.”

Margaret Thatcher - The former prime minister declined, citing poor health.

When all is said and done, Kate Middleton is still a badass.

Celebrity Look of the Week: Reese Witherspoon

Reese Witherspoon

What She Is Wearing:
ChloƩ jacket, The Row dress, Christian Louboutin shoes

Where She Was Spotted:
ABC Radio studios, New York

April 18, 2011

Reese has been one of my favorite fashion icons, as she always has a polished look. She knows how to drop in a pop a color, whether it is in her outfit, or her make-up. Reese is known to wear dresses. In an article in in-style she said, "you can make a dress you go-to fashion statement." Dresses are easier to put together rather than a top and a bottom. Whether it's a day dress for the office or a little black dress for the evening, wearing a dress makes fashion sense because you don't have to worry about coordinating clothing. You're free to concentrate on accessories, which can be as simple or as over-the-top as the occasion demands.

Will You Hold It Against Me?

Everyday I think about how grateful I am to have friends and family fighting for our country. Recently, I was on Twitter following an actor Stephen Colleti and he posted a funny video on Brittany Spears' song Would You Hold It Against Me.

Should I join? Looks like fun!

Electronic Media

What a day it's been. I have been sick, I feel a fever coming on and all I want to do is sleep. I'm happy we got out of class really early or else I would have been miserable the whole time. In class we spoke about Electronic Media-- the dos and don'ts. For example, we should not send out any personal e-mails through our work address. That is one mistake I've already made. Oops!

After our brief lecture we did an in-class exercise on the "YOU" attitude. Boy did my group start to over think these sentences. Go to this blog by dumb little man on how to Think Less and Get Happy.


Why can't Missouri make up it's mind? This state sure jumps from hot to cold, which is causing me to feel incredibly sick. I hate it! :(

The Library & Social Media

Today was such a beautiful day outside, too bad I was in a office inputting applications and transcripts. I was fortunate to get a free lunch at Qudoba. The deal was the first 50 Lindenwood students that showed up got a free meal with a drink. I believe they were promoting their store because they recently opened.

After work, I met the class in the library and had a quick tour of where everything was. It wasn't anything new for me, unfortunately. Later, we we went to our classroom in Spellmann and learned how to research our social media topics within Lindenwood Universities website. We got assigned our groups and I am very happy with who I will be working with. All we really talked about in class today was our group topic, which is the use of youtube, Facebook, & Twitter.
