I recently heard a favorite blogger of mine talk about her "dream dinner guest" list. Once I heard it I thought, "gosh it would be fun to have dinner and talk with some individuals that I would love to meet".
So I begin to ask myself, who would I love to meet, what would I serve, how would I decorate the room and table. That would be a lot of work! But since this is all pretend I guess I could pull it off.
My dream guests would include....
I think both Michelle and George are very intelligent. I love his quote:
Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence.
I believe in this whole heartily.
And this is a great quote from Michelle that I love....
Whether you come from a council estate or a country estate, your success will be determined by your own confidence and fortitude.
This is true. Our success does come from our own strength and fortitude.
I have been a Martha Stewart fan since my college years. I know, I know she went to prison but that does not bother me. I still think that she is a brilliant business woman.
I just adore Ina. I love her home and her garden. She seems to have such a simple business and life. Her recipes are simple and easy, elegant and sophisticated.
I read her book My Life in France and it was such a wonderful read. I wrote about it here. I would love to talk with her about her life there.
Love, love, love their music! I have a permanent Frank Sinatra station and Ella Fitzgerald station on my Pandora radio. It would be delightful to meet them both.
I remember when I got my first Sade c.d. I was a senior in high school. I have been wanting to see her in concert ever since.
Actors and Actresses:
Sinbad- I have to have someone funny and his jokes are clean and good.
There is something so chic about this man. I love his movies and would love to speak with him about gentlemen during his time.
I think she is so gorgeous and is such a talent but I also believe that she had so much sadness. I would love to speak with her about the strength it took to press forward during her time.
I think he is so funny! His jokes are clean and real. I loved his show "Sinbad Where U Been". My husband and I never stop laughing when we watch this!
Great Spiritual Leaders to me:
There is so much to ask the Lord. Even though the bible provides all the answers to get things back in order, I know that I would also need some private time with him. Just having him there at the dinner would give me so much peace and joy.
I wish I could just sit next to her and have her transfer her love for people to me because sometimes I tell you I STRUGGLE! I love this quote of hers....
Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.
First Black Principal Ballerina Misty Copeland
I adore Misty and her work. In 2015 she became the first black principal ballerina at the American Ballet Theatre and that spoke volumes to me! I read a little about her struggles with her body image and eating disorder. I am glad to see that she has risen to the top and continues to thrive. I follow all her social media outlets and would love to meet her!
I love Carolina's style and poise. She is such a wonderful designer and business woman. I still can not believe that she started this business in her 40's! It is truly extraordinary and encouraging. I love watching this interview of her and I would love to have her at my dinner.
And of course my husband, I think he is pretty smart and would have to have him there enjoying this moment with me.
Now, since the guest list is complete I think I would serve chicken and fish.
And these roasted sweet potatoes, they look so good....
Some light roasted vegetables and a salad would be nice....
Light refreshments and...
this crepe cake for dessert! I have always wanted to try one of these!
I would keep the decor simple and chic....
This would be a night for me that I would cherish..... to dream........
