Anniversary Gifts

With school and planning for our upcoming move next summer, we decided not to exchange gifts for our anniversary this year.

And then I remembered that I had some gift cards to use at EdenFantasys.


Here's what we scored.

For Lola:

A Classy Elegance Dress

I really like it. It fits perfectly. It's pretty but also a little casual. It's fun to twirl around in, too. I hope to get a lot of use out of it.

A set of Nipple Rings

Wow! This puppies are tight! I had a really difficult time trying them on. Jasper adjusted them slightly, so hopefully they'll go on easier next time. I would love to be able to wear them out somewhere.

For Jasper:

Some Silicone Penis Ties (okay, maybe these are a little for Lola, too)

We haven't tried these out yet, but I hope they are as fun as we imagine.

A Tenga 3D masturbation sleeve

He tried this out last night after I'd gone to sleep. This morning, I asked him how he enjoyed it, and while I can't remember his exact words, he pretty much loved it. He said it felt really great but clean-up was kind of a pain.

I'd say we scored pretty well. I think we were both very happy with our gifts to each other.

Do you and your SO exchange naughty gifts? What's the best gift (vanilla or otherwise) that you've ever received?

Do you know what today is?

Sure, it's the Winter Solstice.
But even more important than that at least to me.


It's been SEVEN delightful years, and yes, it's still true...

Hope everyone in the northern hemisphere has an enjoyable Winter Solstice tonight. Stay warm.

You know we will. *wink, wink*

♫Random Song of the Day♫ Bennie & the Jets

I got up early this morning to squeeze in a run before work.

It was COLD! My phone said it was 21°F and felt like 16°F. Needless to say, I was all bundled up.

Plus it was still quite dark, so I threw on my reflective vest and headlamp.
Safety first, y'know.

I bet I looked super sexy.
Maybe I'll snap a picture next time.

I got home from my run with perfect timing to see this scene.

Such a fun song.
Such fun eye candy.
Such a fun scene.

Makes me wanna dance on a bar.
I think I've probably gotten a bit too old for that.
But still ...
Someday ...
Maybe ...

A girl can dream...

Now, I'll have this song stuck in my head all day and a smile on my face.

Have you ever danced on a bar? What's a song that makes you smile and just feel good? What's the coldest temp you've ever gone for a run?

FFF: Burned Coffee

(Image source: "Sunny Sunday Morning" by T.C. Reiner)
60-160 words
"...burned coffee..."
What a beautiful morning! she thought as she sighed and leaned back against the stove. Her smile illuminated the entire kitchen.

Instantly, her mind swept back to the moments of the previous night.
The gentle caresses of her lover.
The ripples of orgasm as her body climaxed over and over.

She was in love.

He was, too.

He stood watching her from the doorway, laughing a little at her being lost in her absent-minded reverie.

She hadn’t even noticed the smell of burned coffee.

Laughing again, he walked up, taking the coffee mug from her hands, and pulled her into his arms.

Brushing the hair from her face, he whispered, I love you.

What a beautiful morning, indeed! she thought as she pulled him close – nuzzling into his strong embrace.

As always, head to Insatiabear's blog to read his take on the picture and see who else is playing this week. Even better, why not write your own version and link up.

HNT: Training Shirt

Wow! It's been a really long time. I know you're all sick of hearing how busy I've been with school.

The end is in sight! Yay!

But, truth be told, I still really shouldn't have taken the time to play around with these photos as much as I did tonight. Oh well. If I don't do well on my quiz tomorrow or my final on Fri, I'm totally blaming all of you! You're okay with that, right?

Have I mentioned that I signed up to run a marathon in June? Yep.

Training officially starts in Feb, but I got my fancy training shirt a couple weeks ago.

What do you think?

**Click for the front view**

All right. Who wants to train with me?

Now head over and visit Os for more HNT fun!

Only a few weeks left!

Oh, and don't forget OHNT
 for some even naughtier fun.

2nd Annual Great Online Cookie Exchange Extravaganza

It's the 2nd Annual Great Online Cookie Exchange Extravaganza!
Brought to you by Jz over at A Reluctant Bitch (though I actually found out about it by Hedone at The Pleasure Principle).

It's my first year participating. And yes, technically, it's supposed to be a cookie recipe, but well, I felt like breaking the rules. This time.

Candy is almost as good as cookies anyway. Right?

One of my favorite candies of the holiday season is Peanut Brittle. Especially when it turns out with that perfect brittle consistency and and oh, so buttery-carmely-peanuty flavor. You know, when it kind of melts in your mouth, but still has that brittle snap?

I can't stand it when it's chewy. Ew.

So, homemade is definitely the way to go with this treat. It's actually relatively simple to make and it only requires a few ingredients - most of which are probably staples in your home.

1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup water
1 cup raw Spanish peanuts
1 T butter or margarine
1 tsp baking soda

Grease a large cookie sheet. Set aside.

In a heavy 2 quart saucepan, over medium heat, combine the sugar, corn syrup, and water.

Bring to a boil, stirring until sugar is dissolved.
Add raw peanuts.

If using a candy thermometer, set it in place and continue cooking. Stir constantly until temperature reaches 300°F (150°C) or until a small amount of mixture dropped into cold water separates into hard and brittle threads. Since I do not own a candy thermometer, this is the method I use. I keep a small dish of cold water on the counter near the stove. Periodically, I drip a little of the mixture into the water to test the consistency.

Remove from heat.
Immediately stir in the butter and baking soda.
It is helpful to have these pre-measured and ready to go, so they can be stirred in right away.

Pour at once onto the greased cookie sheet. Using the spatula used during stirring, smooth the peanut mixture over the cookie sheet, making sure there are no holes and that it is relatively evenly spread.

Allow to cool. I usually let it cool for at least 30 minutes or so. It should be a nice caramel color and should no longer be sticky.

Break the candy into pieces. I do this by slamming the cookie sheet onto the counter once or twice (this can be quite loud, so you may want to shout out a warning to others who may be around), and then using a fork to break into smaller piecs.

Enjoy the smooth, buttery, crunchy yumminess!

You. Me. Deserted Office.

via tumblr
I pull you into a deserted office, shutting the door behind me.
I remove my top and my skirt.
Standing before you in only my very sexy lingerie - red and lacy.

I kiss you passionately, while unbuttoning your shirt.
Rubbing my hands along your chest, your abs.
Kissing my way down.
Kissing and licking along the top of your slacks.
Unbuttoning them, letting them drop down to the floor.

I push you up against the wall, releasing your cock.
Feeling it in my hands.
Heating it with my breath.
You are hard.

I kneel before you and lick from base to tip.
Long, slow.
I take your cock masterfully into my mouth.
Feeling you quiver inside, my tongue swirling.

Cock in my mouth, my hands wander back up your body.
Feeling your abs, your chest.
My hands work their way down.
Finding your hands, I direct them to my hair.
Letting you feel my tresses.
Letting you guide your blowjob with your firm hands.

I am dripping with desire.
One more lick from base to tip.
Licking up your happy trail.
Your abs.
Your chest.
My entire body following suit, rubbing up against you.
My nipples so hard.

Your hands are free to roam over me.
You push me up against the wall now.
Sliding your cock beneath my slutty little pussy lips
Teasing me.
Feeling my wetness seeping onto you.

I'm pushing to slide down further, but you're using your strength to keep me up.
You step back and release me.
You want to taste me.
