One year ago today my friends and I left for England. But I won't think about that. I won't think about that. I won't think about that. OK, self-hypnosis doesn't work.
What I will think about is how fun this past weekend was. Hubby and I went on a date. Yippee! And we went furniture shopping on our date, absolutely my favorite thing to do together! Double yippee! We went here:
We didn't buy anything, but it was still alot of fun. Then on Saturday, was my long-awaited (by myself, it was just normal for everyone else) bookclub. Ever since I saw the movie Marie Antoinette I thought it would be fun to have a party that celebrated her decadence. I realize that by admitting that I wanted to throw a party is tantamount to admitting that I didn't understand the point of the movie, (that Marie Antoinette's extravagant lifestyle might have lead to her death)but, honestly, I didn't care. So, I picked The Hidden Diary of Marie Antoinette for my book and never looked back.
This is what I was going for:
This is what I came up with:
I asked the bookclub members to wear fabulous shoes... (Mine are the pink plaid)
And some even went further than that.
But, I had a great time. It was so much fun to plan and execute. Hmm..maybe I shouldn't use that word while talking about Marie Antoinette.
