Another Transitional Tuesday…
Here are some helpful tips for those of us who are transitioning into our very best lives. I think we can all benefit from the wisdom offered in these simple rules. I’ve also included an uplifting quote or two – as some of you have gathered from previous posts, I’ve never been one to pass up a good quote. (Yes, I’ve been spending too much time on Pinterest!)
You should save your best outfit for your second date? And hear I was wearing my Hawaiian shirt on the first date.
The whole monogram towel thing. Is that so people can’t steal them?
That’s exactly right. Those of us who monogram everything do so only because we have a deep fear of allowing thieves into our lives. Clever, right?
I think if you wear the right cologne you should be able to rock that shirt on the first AND second date.
My mother had monograms; I will never live up to her standards and I’m still sad because of it. I think I could do the macarons, well, for a little while, then it would be an empty cake plate on the kitchen counter. Next to a pile of unpaid bills…sigh. Really fun post.
Haha! The Macarons… me too! They’d be gone in a flash. I guess it’s something to aim for – if we’ve mastered everything else in life?
Wholly Macarons! 🙂
Now you see ’em, now you don’t. 😀
These days, I dress comfortably when i travel.
Not that teh guidance isn’t good.
In my case, it’s just misplaced.
As I was telling Mooselicker, I think you can rock that Hawaiian shirt on the first AND second date? No worries. 🙂
It’s when you keep wearing teh same one through the fourth date that it’s a problem.
Fortunately, I have several.
Nothing that a strong cologne can’t remedy! haha!
Transitioning into my mid-life cloud, would perfect my favorite dish if I could remember my friends names and call for my signature drink — if it didn’t give me a splitting headache 😉 xox!
haha! It’s all just too much, isn’t it?
I like the Nin quote. I am making cupcakes and I am going to put them on my nice cake glass plate.. 🙂 Decorated for valentines of course. Too bad I can’t make a cup of coffee without turning into a lunatic 🙂
I know, I do too. It’s so true and tells you everything you need to know about grouchy, twisted people. haha!
Mmmm, cupcakes sound divine! I have such a ridiculous sweet tooth lately. I wish it would go away.
Oh now these are the best quotes ever! I love the pictures too especially the one of Jackie Kennedy. What a great transitional Tuesday. I am really enjoying them Lisa! 😀
I love the pictures, too. They were really very firm with their instructions, in those days. This is how you live a good life. End of story. They leave no wiggle room. haha!
No wiggle room just says it all Lisa. No wonder everybody revolted in the 60’s! 😀
The first one is really good. Build on strengths to project an image you like, in effect.
It feels very solid. I like that the instructions are very firm.
Yes, build on strengths as opposed to tears, frustrations and hopelessness. Good advice. 🙂
I have never seen so many smiley faces in all my life! However, I do feel a bit more cheerful than when I came to your blog, so, maybe they’re working. 🙂 That’s the best I know how to do. HF
Hey, what happened. I typed a colon and a parenthesis and it came out a smiley face. Wow! I didn’t know I could do that. Okay, standby for my future blogs where I end every sentence with one! Oh, boy! I’m going to try it again. 🙂
🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
You do realize that you can use a semi colon for a winking face or the capital D for a big cheesy smile. I just wanted to make you aware of the many options. You can really finesse the smile to correlate with the text. So there ends up being more to it than you originally thought, right? Why do I think this is in one smiley face ear and out the other?
and I like the last one 🙂 full of hope..
Me too, it goes for everyone looking for love.
So glad you shared these!
haha! A little humor with a few quotes can carry me through the day. I’m simple that way. 🙂
Me too! Have a blessed day!
Yes you are…or maybe (and I know I’m treading on VERY thin water here)…love will feel better than the first time…love always from all of us…be encouraged!
Thanks, Stephen. I sure hope so!
Thanks for always providing encouragement 🙂
Providing encouragement is the easy part…being encouraged?…well now that is a full time 24/7 job…hahaha…be encouraged!
That last one was pretty near perfect.
Aww… thanks kind child. I like the ones that are hand written. They make me feel like they’re especially for me.
That the perfect hostess tips reminds me of my step mother– she knew how to put it together! I love these.
Oops! “That the perfect hostess” — typo!
My mom was like that, too. A little trip down memory lane… If only life was so simple and all we had to worry about was perfecting a meal or finding a signature drink! haha! Something about it soothes my simple soul.
Great post! X

LOL! It really reduces things down to what should be our real priorities, right? 😉
Love the last one too!!!! I’ll never own monogrammed towels though. ever. Maybe from goodwill and maybe with someone else’s initials on them…I do make a mean curry…great post!!
It’s silly but I wish life was just this simple and easy. Can you imagine if that was all we had to worry about? Monogrammed towels will never happen for me either. My towels always end up frayed and used as cleaning rags!
The last one is for you and me and a few others I know…. I like that it’s hand written. It makes me feel like someone specifically wrote it for me.
Guess I’ll never pass for the “Perfect Hostess”.. At best you get some quick cut up veggies and a bottled salad dressing dip or if feeling adventurous, crackers and cheese..
haha! If only life were this simple and easy, right? Something about it it soothes my turbulent soul. Maybe it provides some crazy balance? The idea of contemplating becoming the perfect hostess is so off my charts that it actually delights me. Does that even make sense? Whatever… 🙂
The last quote is for you and me and a few others I know, that could use a little pick me up in the form of a handwritten message. It feels like something a grandmother would write. That’s why I like it.
Have a great day, Lynne!
I like those! They’re cute. I don’t know if I like to travel elegantly though. You can’t be cozy when you’re elegant!
I know. I thought they were cute, too. Now you know why I like to dress up a little when I travel – I’m old school. 😉
Your second picture reminds that there once was a time when air travel was a special treat, rather than a cattle call. I remember, very vaguely and from a long time ago, one airplane trip where there was a lounge area in the back of the plane where you could congregate with others and the stewardesses would bring you drinks.
Nowadays, you grit your teeth, they pack you in and you hope that you and your luggage are going to the same destination.
Can you see why I miss Toxic Tuesdays?
haha! Yes. Don’t tell anyone, but I miss them, too. I also remember dressing up to travel. It’s a habit that I still maintain even though my children think I’m nuts. It was so much more civilized back in those days. I’m glad you appreciated that little trip down memory lane.
I’ll try and slip in something toxic, now and then. 😉
The magnificence of love is always worth waiting for…
I hope I find it someday, soon. 🙂
You will find love when you
least expect it, and that is the
beauty of life 🙂
Hmmm, I like Anais Nin. Once read a book of her and I couldn’t help but liking her. This quote of her is so right. I like these posts of you a lot!
Thanks, Astrid. I like that one very much. It’s completely true.
