The Madness Continues…

When I showed you my secret obsession back in November, I got some great responses. And lost only a few readers, I think…

When I live-blogged the Royal Wedding on April 29, I really did it more for my own amusement than anything else, but it happened to entertain a few other people too, which was nice. (It quickly became one of my most popular posts in my nearly-four years of blogging.)

What I’ve learned is that you people may not all like the British royals as much as I do, but you seem to like that I like them as much as I do. It’s high time for another vlog, especially now that I have a couple of enablers…

    That package must have weighed a ton with all those newspapers! What a riot! Yay for English friends!

    I am so happy to know that the queen waves to you while you do dishes!

    Good day to vlog, you look very pretty! (Not that you don’t always…..)

  • Heather

    You are precious! I love the VLOG! and I totally watched this on my lunch and I was laughing & people were staring at me 😉 good job on the time too 😉

  • Karen the Microblogologist

    Haha, love it! And I am definitely in the people who like that you like them as much as you do crowd <3

  • Nicole

    You are awesome! I felt like I was right in your living room looking at all the goodies. I want to come over when you open the clotted cream fudge – YUM!
    And, the waving queen?!?! So cool! I love it! How does it work? A light sensor or something in her purse that activates the hand? Wha?! Fantastic. Love it.

    Hi Melisa,
    I’m so glad you liked all your Royal wedding goodies! So sorry the money bank got dented. All you need to know about clotted cream is it makes fudge taste yummy! 🙂 I look forward to your review of the fudge – it should be very sweet and rich, so I hope you have a sweet tooth.
    You’ve made Jenny so happy with her mentions – and with the promise of more Build a Bear toys next year!
    And I hear that Zara Phillips is relying on you live blogging her wedding too.
    Julie xx

    What an awesome package of royal stuff. Wonder if they make a 25lb. Build-a-Bear?!? Also, we still do paper dolls at our house 😉

  • Tara R.

    You so could use the tea towel as a flag! I always thought clotted cream was a little like cream cheese or mascarpone… but I could be wrong, or just a Yank.

    The paper dolls and the Queen are a hoot! Those made me laugh.

    Loved the vlog and the goodies you received from England via Julie and Jenny. I am a Royal Family watcher and tried to get up for the wedding, just barely missing it. I bought and received a few of “our” (U.S.’s ) magazine featuring the Royal couple on the cover. I still have some Diana magazines from “back in the day,” and received a books about her as gifts.

    I can’t wait to hear your review of the clotted cream fudge. I have no idea what clotted cream is, so I’ll look it up.

    I hope you enjoy all your Royal goodies!
