and I'll be 50.  I've been in sort of a funk for a couple of months as I realized that.  That changed yesterday.

I'm going to Nashville to see Renee Fleming for the Nashville Symphony's season-opening gala.  My ticket arrived yesterday.  I also went shopping, yesterday. 

I have gowns, but I wanted a new one.  So I went to look at some.  I found close to a dozen dresses that I started trying on.  One was a really nice black gown that curved with me.  It was gorgeous.  I kept trying things on.  I got to a silver gown that, as soon as I put it on and looked in the mirror, I had to own it.  Period.  There are few things in life that I can't live without.  This gown was one of them.  I spent my entire shopping budget on this dress.  I had to have it.  End.Of.Story.

Thank you!  I just wish I had a better picture of it.

I decided that I was going to just treat myself to the absolute best that I could afford, for this milestone in my life.  I'm going to get my hair and makeup and nails done, and I'll look as fabulous as I know I'll feel.  smile

Paint me jealous.

Magnificent gown when you wear it. But I still think that a white t-shirt and a jean would look magnificent on you.
Clothes are just the sheath, you are the blade

That is probably one of the loveliest things anyone has ever said to me.  Thank you. smile

And yes, be jealous!  I am SO excited!  I'm really going all out.

And I'll be staying here:

Embrace the 50 -

That birthday jumped out at me like a mugger, leaping  out of the bushes.  And yet, if you embrace it and wear it well - - it's just a number.  That dress is a stunner - so, good start smile

You're pretty awesome at 49 - I doubt that will change just because a day passes.

Also, it beats the heck out of the alternative.

Well, when I turned 40, I was excited.  This 50 thing has sort of taken me by surprise, but I decided to embrace it when I tried on that dress.

Makeup will be smoky, accessories will be black (shoes, bag, gloves), hair will be up (haven't done that in years), and nails and lips will be red.

I approve and then i approve some more. You had me at gloves, you classy broad!

I tell people I'm 21 with 9 years experience. 

Enjoy your birthday, sexy lady.

Ah, to be fifty again.

For me, at 50, you are the younger woman.

I am right there with you as I turn 50 myself in 11 days.  It doesn't seem possible that I could be that old. 

The dress looks great.  It certainly beat the alternative of not making it to 50.

I agree. I don't know that I could up with a Diva at 50. But it would be fun trying. tongue

I've told you this already, but I'll say it again... I hope I look half as good as you do when I turn 50!

I'm turning 30 next year... It's a different milestone, but I'm actually excited about it.
