Paris is Just around the Corner

Part of this is a re-post with some new informaiton

For several years I've wanted to take one of the Red Shed Girl's trips to Paris. I've made sure my passport is up to date, and watched as they blogged about the trips. I did go on one guided trip with the girls to my first Junk Bonanza and I must say, they think of everything. Val even contributed to the recent Flea Market Style magazine on page 11 in an article about shopping the Paris Fleas. So I knew there was no better group to go with.

But you see I'm a cheapskate and it takes a lot for me to part with a dime, so I've been putting it off.

Then one day Mr R said to me "when you are 80, and you can't go, will you regret not going?" Of course the answer was "yes", and so that was all the nudge I needed.

After a few conversations with Val and a small down payment, I'm headed to Paris And it's only a few weeks away, After waiting for about 9 months, it's finally, as we say, "within spittin distance".

The information emails have gotten more frequent and closer togehter. I've emailed with my roommate, and there is a meeting coming up. I've tried to temper my excitement so far, but It's getting harder and harder.

Of course I'm excited about sharing it with all of you so stay tuned, April 18th is the day we fly out but I've got lots to do before that. Oh, My Son is getting married April 6th :)

In case you are not familiar with the Red Shed Girl's tours, go here for all the info.

You will have such a wonderful time. I loved Paris but I was with my husband and son and we didn't get to do any flea market shopping. Share all the pictures you want when you get back, I would love to see them. And good luck with the wedding too!!

I've been to Paris, it's a lovely city. Just watch out for dog *bombs* on the sidewalks, lol!

Carey, I've heard about that. As the owner of 3 pooches, I'm used to it :, but no in the city :)
