I’m back from my surprise birthday! I’m the big five oh now!
I can’t believe it! Where has the time gone?
My surprise getaway included a stay at a luxury resort in the…cough, cough… ahem… Princess Suite (Princesses can be 50!), a spa day, hiking, fine food, butterfly conservatory, botanical gardens, the Shaw Festival’s musical Alice In Wonderland, gourmet peanuts grown in Ontario (who knew?) and a bit of shopping (bien sûr!). It was a great little trip even if I am HUGELY disappointed that my massage was not scheduled with one of the tattooed-steamin’-hot-buff-boy-massage-hunks I spotted at the spa. Oh no. My husband made sure my masseuse was a woman.
DUDE!!! Come on! It was my 50th for Pete’s sake!
I’ll get him back next year for his 50th! Mark my words.
Have you ever eaten a peanut wrapped inside a chip?
They are a salty crunchy bit of heaven. I am forever ruined for regular peanuts or chips. We bought them at the famous Picard’s Peanuts in Niagara-on-the-Lake. We went in hungry and came out with a massive bag and $40 worth of peanuts. It is never a good idea to shop hungry. You’d think I’d know that by now that I’m 50.
I wanted to wear this, but wearing white jeans is just an accident waiting to happen. Especially when I didn’t know what we’d be doing or where we were going.
Yes the pug wanted in on the action. No surprise there. For those of you that need to know the difference between a pug and a French bulldog Zoë was happy to help out.
My bag has a French bulldog on it. They look like they still could be sisters from another Mister though.
If you’re like me and white washes you out then white on the lower half is the way to go. I used to think that white made me look massive, but I’ve gotten over that since I turned 50, a few days ago, ha ha! My new found wisdom is overwhelming!
I never thought I’d be able to pull of this maternity/boho top. ( I swear I did not find this in the maternity section.)
Once again my new found 50 year old wisdom told me,
Unlike when I was in my twenties and wore empire waisted tops and people asked me when I was due now they just ask me how many baby pugs I’m hiding.
Damn it’s great being 50!
What great wisdom have you learned lately?
