13 Thoughts You Definitely Had While Watching The Royal Wedding

13 Thoughts You Definitely Had While Watching The Royal Wedding

Please, tell me again, why isn't Prince Harry marrying me??

Unless you've been living under a rock at the bottom of the Mariana Trench, you've probably heard a little something about the royal wedding that happened May 19, 2018 between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The wedding was beautiful and spectacular and everything you would expect from a royal wedding. Many people had a lot to say throughout its course, so here are 13 thoughts you definitely had while watching the royal wedding.

1. Wait, why I am waking up so early??

4:30 a.m. is TOO early, y'all.

2. Oh yeah, duh because it's THE ROYAL WEDDING!!!

My thoughts exactly, Will. I feel you.

3. I should invest in one of these fancy hats

Update: they're called fascinators apparently. Probably because they're fascinating.

4. Dang, the princes are looking spiffy. Well, spiffier than usual.

Where would one sign up to get themselves one of those?? (Asking for a friend.)

5. Holy cow, Meghan looks absolutely beautiful

And that dress is simple, yet so stunning.

6. Way to step up Prince Charles

Meghan's father was unable to attend the wedding, so Charles stepped up to walk her down the final half of the aisle, and I thought it was truly such a nice gesture.

7. Look at how he looks at her!!

Hey Prince Harry, you wouldn't happen to want to look at me like that, would you??

8. This preacher sure can preach

Maybe it was longer than we were expecting but you can't deny that the message was good.

9. I wonder if they find Meghan's accent amusing?

I mean if we enjoy their accents then they probably enjoy ours, right?

10. Why are they singing "My country 'tis of thee"?

Turns out that's their national anthem. And its actually called "God save the Queen." And we actually stole it and made it our own song. Whoops.

11. Yay, they're married now!!!

*crying tears of joy because I'm so happy for them but also crying tears of sadness because now I'm never gonna marry Harry*

12. Kiss! Kiss! Kiss!

It's no balcony kiss, but hey, it's a close second.

13. I'm so glad I taped this so I can watch it over and over and over again !!

It's gonna be at least 20 years until we get another royal wedding of this caliber (looking at you George, Charlotte, and Louis), so I might as well continue to relive this one until that day comes.

The royal wedding was one that captured the hearts of millions around the globe. Some cried tears of joy for the happy couple, some cried tears of sadness because Prince Harry is off the market (that'd be me), and still others cried tears because the wedding was too dang early (do they not believe in night time weddings in the UK?).

In all seriousness, Harry and Meghan, the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex, congratulations. I, and the rest of the world, wish you a lifetime of happiness.

I'm A Woman And You Can't Convince Me Breastfeeding In Public Is OK In 2019

Sorry, not sorry.


Lately, I have seen so many people going off on social media about how people shouldn't be upset with mothers breastfeeding in public. You know what? I disagree.

There's a huge difference between being modest while breastfeeding and just being straight up careless, trashy and disrespectful to those around you. Why don't you try popping out a boob without a baby attached to it and see how long it takes for you to get arrested for public indecency? Strange how that works, right?

So many people talking about it bring up the point of how we shouldn't "sexualize" breastfeeding and seeing a woman's breasts while doing so. Actually, all of these people are missing the point. It's not sexual, it's just purely immodest and disrespectful.

If you see a girl in a shirt cut too low, you call her a slut. If you see a celebrity post a nude photo, you call them immodest and a terrible role model. What makes you think that pulling out a breast in the middle of public is different, regardless of what you're doing with it?

If I'm eating in a restaurant, I would be disgusted if the person at the table next to me had their bare feet out while they were eating. It's just not appropriate. Neither is pulling out your breast for the entire general public to see.

Nobody asked you to put a blanket over your kid's head to feed them. Nobody asked you to go feed them in a dirty bathroom. But you don't need to basically be topless to feed your kid. Growing up, I watched my mom feed my younger siblings in public. She never shied away from it, but the way she did it was always tasteful and never drew attention. She would cover herself up while doing it. She would make sure that nothing inappropriate could be seen. She was lowkey about it.

Mindblowing, right? Wait, you can actually breastfeed in public and not have to show everyone what you're doing? What a revolutionary idea!

There is nothing wrong with feeding your baby. It's something you need to do, it's a part of life. But there is definitely something wrong with thinking it's fine to expose yourself to the entire world while doing it. Nobody wants to see it. Nobody cares if you're feeding your kid. Nobody cares if you're trying to make some sort of weird "feminist" statement by showing them your boobs.

Cover up. Be modest. Be mindful. Be respectful. Don't want to see my boobs? Good, I don't want to see yours either. Hard to believe, I know.

Here's What Happens When All Of Your Friends Have Babies

All of my friends back home are married with children. No, really, they are.


Over the past few months, three of my friends have shared their pregnancy news with me, and I couldn't be more thrilled. Baby news always stirs up a range of emotions for me. I'm excited and crying happy tears (no joke, I started to cry when my best friend told me and showed me her ultrasound).

Being "Auntie Meg" brings me such great joy. You see, I absolutely adore children, especially my friend's kiddos. They can easily brighten up my day with their giggles, love you, and their goodbye kisses & waves. I absolutely love getting to be "Auntie Meg"; it could potentially be my favorite role to fill.

I don't think I've ever loved human beings more than I love these babies. These are kiddos I would do almost anything for; they truly have my whole heart and I couldn't be more thankful for each and every one of them. I've loved getting to watch my friends grow into incredible parents.

I love getting to be one of the biggest cheerleaders for my friends and their kids. Listen, I can't wait for the day when they are older and are asking to come over more and spend time doing fun things with auntie Meg. I can't wait to watch them grow and I can't wait to be able to come alongside them and be a shoulder to cry on and one of the loudest voices cheering them on (Next to mom and dad, of course).

While there is just so much good about your friends growing up and having children of their own, if you are not careful, it can also fuel a person's self-doubt.

It can bring up questions like, "am I good enough?", "what is wrong with me?", "why am I not where they are at?" I would be lying if I said that I have never thought or felt these things, but here's the thing: you are good enough, there is absolutely nothing wrong with you, and their path is not your path; you will get there when you get there.

Those things are so important to remember in times when you begin to doubt yourself or your worth.

Believe me, you are good enough, there is nothing wrong with you, and that is not the path you need to be on at the moment. This is a great time for you to focus on you and the things you want out of life. What are your goals? What is on your bucket list? Just because you don't have the things your friends have, doesn't make your life any less fulfilled than theirs is. Your life is just as wonderful and fulfilling as theirs is, just in different ways.
