Satin and silk

Or... What I did during my first “summer” weekend – the blog report

First, I apologize for not being around much after Blogblast for Peace (which was WAY cool) but work was (and continues to be) a zoo last week, replete with “monkeys” (the crap flinging kind) and I’m sick and tired of it, but we need to eat, so… My google reader is filling up so I’ll try and get to as many as I can in the next few days. But between the Grand Poobah visit at work this week (which means a dinner Thursday night) and preparations for the upcoming weekend *insert huge grin here* my time and powers of concentration may be limited more so than usual.

So…on to the highlight of my weekend.

In the space of… um… overnight (how much of a timeframe that actually constitutes, I’m uncertain of and can’t be bothered to calculate, sorry) we went from nippy (to non Canadians) right straight to “you may as well pin your hair up it’ll never look good no matter how you try and get rid of the frizz” and I’m loving every minute of it (except the bad hair stuff). It was the weather equivalent of zero-to-sixty in a blink of an eye.

But the novelty of it all wore off quick and Chicklet just had to find an air-conditioned spot to cool off. I guess she needed to ease into the heat and humidity. Plus the swimming pool is still looking like the lagoon The Swamp Creature crawled out of; I really do need to get on that this week.

We quickly went through the list of possible places to frequent that would provide cool temps and, well… we picked The Mall (what? We’re girls!) Plus, I needed cards for Fathers Day, Chicklet needed a couple of summer outfits – that child grows like the weeds in my jungle, err, backyard, and I needed a present for my Honey.

Oh yeah, and I needed (yes, needed! don’t roll your eyes at me) a new pair of red peep toe slingbacks and some girly lacy and soft under things from La Senza for the upcoming weekend with Honey *grin*. I know, I could show up wearing the everyday stuff (which if you know me is still rocking) or nothing at all (*giggle*) and I’d get as much attention as I do with the “play stuff” but it really is about putting a little bit of extra effort once in a while and not taking your partner for granted. Besides, I enjoy it just as much. I’m a girly girl.
Silk and Satin…Cole Porter knew what he was writing about, babes! And Janice Paige sang it like she meant it.







Gentlemen, do you have a favorite item of lingerie? Ladies, what do you wear that makes you feel most sexy?

Rationalization will get you quite a bit, my dear woman!

Jay said...

I totally believe that you "needed" those shoes. I "need" a 42 inch HDTV too. LOL ;-)

Lesley said...

You go girl!
I actually bought some black 6 inch knee high boots recently... to go with a few lil outfits... I doubt these boots will see much of the floor though .. lol....
I hope work eases into an acceptable pace for you..
Hugs'N'Luv,
Lesley

Akelamalu: Strategically placed no doubt ;)

Fishnets, garders, and high heels- but my wife thinks I look silly in them... :) All kidding aside, I live with a woman who has an old Snoopy cotton nightshirt that has been washed and worn so often Snoopy is almost gone... We call it the ghost of Snoopy's nightshirt!

Anndi said...

Buff: *giggle* Ghost of Snoopy eh? So you like it cause it's see through... I see...

Roger said...

I wish I could whistle in a comment! ;D

Turnbaby said...

Purrrrrr

I feel really sexy in my own skin right now even though I am kinda overfilling my summah clothes.

I love pretty girly and a little naughty;-)

CrystalChick said...

I'm not usually one for lingerie, but I have this one silky black, pink, and cream piece that has a thin sheer black robe...mmm...
but oh drats and darn I've gained a couple, okay 10, OKAY... 30 lbs. since I bought it. So lately I've been wearing this plaid blue oversized man's polo shirt that I grabbed out of BIL's clothes donation bag. How pathetic is THAT??? I won't be bringing sexy back anytime too soon. However, I've promised to atleast color my hair, and give myself a manicure and pedicure very soon!!

Meribah said...

You're a girly girl...sooo that means you're a softie!!!! Wooo! SHE FINALLY ADMITS SHE IS A SOFTIE!!!! And you can't take it back, either! LOL :P
