US Embassy Dinner in London

Wednesday, September 10, 2014
Last night I had dinner at the US Ambassador's house in London.  Yes, his house.  With Prince Harry. And the Foo Fighters.

Pretty awesome.



As Key Spouses of our squadron, we received invitations to join Ambassador Barzun as he welcomed the participants to the Invictus Games that will be taking place over the next 4 days in London.  Prince Harry is the main sponsor of these games, having visited the US and seen our Wounded Warrior program and wanted to bring something similar back to England.


I'll be honest, we kinda thought it was going to be a stuffy dinner with a receiving line to meet the Ambassador, who would then never remember us.  We didn't get much intel from the POCs on base other than "show up here."  Turns out it was a big party on the lawn with yummy food and free booze (insert sad pregnant lady face here) where Prince Harry walked through to sign autographs and take pics and then the Ambassador surprised us all with a great performance from the Foo Fighters.

Like I said, pretty awesome.


The Real Downton Abbey

Perk of living in England:  Visiting Highclere Castle where Downton Abbey is filmed. Um, YAY!




I don't watch much TV except for Downton Abbey and Modern Family with my Apple TV but I'm a sucker for a good historical fiction story- umm, yes Modern Family fits right in that genre.  Anyways, living 2.5 hrs from the 'Abbey'- I mean really...  So I took my pregnant tooshie over there with a few friends for a fun day exploring/pretending that I lived there.
