Sorry, I stuck my version inside your quote!

Here's a Mexican kind of version:
Salud, dinero y amor...el ultimo es mejor!

Here are a couple more:

Rezarle solo a su santo...tell your troubles only to someone who can do something about them.

And one made for the forum:
Se calento el horno... literally the oven got hot...but means the discussion is getting heated!!!

You could use gozar- to enjoy, and it would work, I guess. But the original expression is "Salud, amor y pesetas, y tiempo para gastarlas"
