Paris or Bust!

The phrase “or bust” means to do something or collapse from the effort; – used in phrases expressing determination to do something; as, Oregon or bust, meaning “We will get to Oregon or die trying.” …source

Paris or bust 2

By this time tomorrow, two dear friends and I will be living this phrase as we journey to Paris for a week of sightseeing ending with attending the Paris Fashion Doll Festival.   This year, the festival doll will be a Silkstone Barbie and current speculation is it will be a variation of the “Luncheon Ensemble” Silkie.  I agree with this guess and interestingly enough… the doll will be given at a luncheon.  I am hoping for a brunette version myself but would not turn down a blond either.  I am also hoping for a color of outfit change…like a blue or spring green..yummy.

I will try to blog from Paris but may have trouble locating reliable free WIFI so if there are no updates…it’s because 1) I am having too much fun in Paris to do the updates or 2) I can’t connect to upload or 3) I am sleeping off the bottle of wine I had with lunch/dinner  {SNORT!}

… don’t laugh….it could definitely happen.

    Have an absolutely wonderful, fabulous time! (Yeah, right! Like I have to tell you that!!!) Please try not to get into so much trouble that you have to set aside bail money for getting out of jail… I’m sure the local gendarmes are cute, but you really should save your money for dollies, and wine, and dollies, and cuisine, and dollies, and sightseeing, and … Did I mention dollies?! Parlez vous Francais? Enjoy!

    I know you will have such a great time. Paris is such a fun city to visit! A close friend of mine who visits there often says there is lots of wi-fi available, so hopefully you’ll be able to send back a few pics/posts to those of us who can only wish we were with you!! Travel safely! Looking forward to hearing all about your trip and what beautiful doll you receive!

    Hope you have a wonderful time! If you only had time to blog one thing, my wish would be the convention doll… but you’ll probably be too busy sipping the wine and enjoying Paris. (and I wouldn’t blame you one little bit) 😉
