A Plan

So..... I told you in my last post that I was going to share with you my plan for overcoming my bout with feeling out of sorts.  Seriously... I had some ideas... and for the life of me... I can't remember them!  I'm not kidding... will they print this blog in the newspaper someday, with the headline... 

"We Should Have Seen it Coming?"

I don't mean by any stretch that I am going postal on you... it's just strange that I can't remember ideas I had only a few days ago.


Ok... on to the next.  I did turn 50 last month without fanfare.  There was just too much going on... but I want to share this card with you.  It came from a dear friend, and I L-O-V-E it!  Sorry it's backwards, but there's a correctly oriented pic at the top of this blog.

Every time I open this card I smile. 

Since I can't remember any of my old ideas, I just came up with a new idea... drink more Champagne... French of course... and celebrate the simple things in life.  

When Scott and I jet off to Paris in September, (I had to say "jet off to Paris"... it sounds SO romantic) one thing we are looking forward to, besides our oh-so-chic apartment, (see bottom half of this post) is popping a bottle of bubbly on the steps of Sacre Coeur, and toasting the most wonderful marriage, and city, in the world!

With that said, I leave you with these quotes... 

"I drink Champagne when I win, to celebrate . . . and I drink Champagne when I lose, to console myself."  (Napoleon Bonaparte)

"In victory we deserve it, in defeat we need it." (Winston Churchill)

"My only regret in life is that I did not drink more Champagne." 
(John Meynard Keynes)

"I only drink Champagne when I'm happy, and when I'm sad. Sometimes I drink it when I'm alone. When I have company, I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I am not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise I never touch it - unless I'm thirsty." (Lily Bollinger)

"Champagne is the only wine that leaves a woman beautiful after drinking it." 
(Madame De Pompadour)

"Three be the things I shall never attain: envy, content and sufficient Champagne." (Dorothy Parker)

"Two warm bodies and one cold bottle of Champagne will produce something more wonderful than would happen without the Champagne." (Helen Gurley Brown)

"Champagne offers a minimum of alcohol and a maximum of companionship." 
(David Niven)

"Too much of anything is bad, but too much Champagne is just right." 
(F. Scott Fitzgerald)

"One holds a bottle of red wine by the neck, a woman by the waist, and a bottle of Champagne by the derriere." (Mark Twain)

Aren't these a crack up? 
Maybe there is magic in those bubbles... ha ha...
 these certainly gave me a smile, hope they gave you one too!

Okay Teri, if we start now we can plan for 51. My foot will be well. You won't be expecting a grandbaby, I don't think, and maybe, just maybe, things will be where we can have a party that makes history. I'll have cold bubbly and a fine French dinner and you can have a most fun time. Who wants to be 50 when you can be 51. It's unusual just like you!

A Tale of Two Cities said...

Can't beat the bubbly to make an occasion festive! Hope you'll share your Paris plans as they day draws closer!


Deanne said...

I am cracking up at the hand holding up the card!!!!! Love it! This is so YOU!

Girl Meets Paris said...

All that means Deanne is that I'm too lazy to get out my camera, so I just use my built in computer camera...lame, I know!
