Date Night is for the Woman, Dummy!

I just read this article ‘Date night’ was wrecking my love life and I knew it had to be written by a man. 🙂  He goes on about how scheduling a night (date night) once a week, to have sex was boring to the point where he dreaded date cartoonnight.  WTH?!  What guy is going to turn down a guaranteed night to have sex?!   Apparently some men, think “Date Night” should be spontaneous and not planned.  Well, I got news for ya!

Date Night is like foreplay.  Women need this, especially now that most women work and raise kids and clean house and cook dinner and do the shopping and do the laundry and and and.  If we don’t schedule in a time to be with you, then it ain’t gonna happen!  Most women are not going to stop in the middle of dinner, or laundry, or cleaning, or whatever to go have spontaneous sex with you.  Once in a while is OK, but all of the time is boring and selfish on your part….we are busy and tired, we want a Date Night.

Women love Date Night!  It is a night we can fantasize about.  We can relax, get dressed up and go out to dinner.  Or we can go for a hike, a walk on the beach, SOMETHING that is just the 2 of us together and no work or kids.  Women like to plan these things and make it special.  Date night is supposed to be special, not boring.  I am guessing the man who hates Date Night, is also a man who hates foreplay.  In other words…a selfish bastard!  🙂

Port Salerno, Florida

I am currently flying back from a log weekend getaway in Stuart Florida and loving the Amarican Airlines gogo inflight internet!   This is the first time my husband and I have been to Florida and it certainly won’t be the last.   We

Pirates Cove Inn

Sunrise from our room.

stayed at the Pirates Cove Inn located in what the locals call the “Manatee Pocket” area.  It is located in a harbor surrounded by yachts, waterfront restaurants and tiki bars.  This was a great location because it was beautiful, relaxing and we could walk to several nice restaurants and bars and not have to mess around with driving and parking.  There was even a breakfast /lunch place (Whistle Stop) within walking distance and it was so good we ate there every day.

If you enjoy fishing, this is the place to be!  Every morning we watched the fishing boats go out and every evening we would see what they brought in.  You can easily charter a boat from the bait shop located next to the tiki bar.

I always like to eat the local food when I travel.  If in Mexico, I eat Mexican food, here in Stuart Fl, I ate seafood. We ate at the Pirates Loft twice. 

I have to say it was the freshest and the best seafood I have ever had.  The crab and scallop dishes were amazing.  I have never had such a tender buttery scallop in California (where I live).  And the crab cakes were made of all crab, not bread balls with a touch of crab, like we get in California.

I highly recommend staying at the Pirates Cove Inn if you are looking for a low key, fun and relaxing getaway.

Valentines Day Dinner

Why does everybody go out for Valentines Day dinner? As somebody who worked in the restaurant business for most of her life I can tell you it is the worst day of the year to go out for a romantic meal. Valentines Day is about celebrating love with your “someone special”.  How is going to a crowded reslobster dinnertaurant with 50 to 100 other couples romantic? Restaurants are so busy on this day that the service is mediocre, your food is usually not as good or non existent since they ran out of what you wanted at 7pm and the atmosphere simply sucks because it’s loud, crowded and chaotic, how romantic is that?! So what to do?….

Personally, I like dining in. I think it’s fun to decorate our dining area with candles (be safe), plug in a romantic sultry playlist, put on something sexy and have a nice light meal at home. I usually cook lobster and king crab legs served with melted butter. For those who  really want to impress their Date, I found a place who will deliver your lobster dinner!  You can even order today by 5pm EST (eastern time) and get it by tomorrow!  How cool is that?

A private romantic Valentines dinner is HOT, a crowded, public restaurant is NOT!

Sexy Shelf Bra Set for Valentines Day

Shelf Bra Image

Sexy red & black shelf bra set.

 

 

Valentines Day is only 1 week away. This shelf bra, garterbelt, thong and stocking set will wow your man! Most men love the look of a woman wearing an old fashioned garter belt with stockings.  Yea, they are kind of a pain in the ass to put on, but well worth the effort. 😉  Pair the garterbelt with a shelf bra and thong as in this Shelf Bra Set and he will certainly “Be Your Valentine”!

Ashland Oregon

Beasy's on the Creek

Beasy's on the Creek

A few weeks ago my husband and I went up to Medford for truck parts and decided to stay in Ashland for the night. What a cute little town it is! We stayed at the Ashland Creek Inn. The Ashland Creek Inn was beautiful. It is located right on a creek with balconies off of each room that looks over the creek. It is also located within walking distance of the downtown area where there is lots of tax free shopping and dining. We spent the day walking around town shopping and occasionally stopping in a pub for beer & glass of wine.

After shopping we walked back to our room looking for a place to eat dinner.  We decided on Beasy’s on the Creek.  It was conveniently located across from The Ashland Creek Inn.  I was shocked to see that this restaurant is listed as #34 on Tripadvisor.  This restaurant was fabulous!  It has a great romantic setting on the creek, wonderful food and perfect service.

My only complaint about about our trip, besides it being too short, was the Inn didn’t serve the included breakfast until 9am.  We had to skip breakfast because that is just too late for us.The Wild Goose Cafe

That turned out to be a good thing because we stopped just down the freeway at the Wild Goose Cafe & Bar.   This is your typical diner looking place, nothing fancy, but the breakfast was awesome!  We are big meat eaters and when I saw the “carnivore omelet” on the menu I knew this was my kinda place.   Again, I am shocked this place is rated #35 on Tripadvisor!  We both agreed this was one of the best breakfasts we have ever had!  Makes me wonder about those reviews.

Noble Coffee

The coffee was the best coffee I have ever had in a restaurant.  They told me it was Noble Coffee, made right in Ashland!  I was almost tempted to go back downtown to buy some, but noticed I could buy it online.  As soon as I got home I ordered a sample pack.  So far we have tried the Daydream blend.  It is ridiculously good!

We had such a nice time there we planning on making Ashland one of our regular little “get away” destinations.

What is a Monokini?

Suspender Monokini Image

A monokini is a one piece bikini.  A one piece swimsuit usually has a lot of coverage, whereas a monokini has minimal coverage like a bikini.

Monokinis like this yellow one are ultra sexy, have a thong back and are often worn by exotic dancers.  They are also fun for romantic private jacuzzi / pool use.

Many monokinis offer more coverage, but are still sexy, like this black O-ring style.  From the back it looks like a regular 2 piece full back bikini, but it is really a one piece, monokini.

O-ring Monokini

I like these because you can get a great tan (unlike in a one piece) and never have to worry about losing your bottoms while body surfing in the ocean!

The Peppermill Casino & Resort in Reno Nv

It’s been a while since I posted.  I have been so busy.  My husband & I escaped to Reno for Christmas.  I thought it would be weird not being around friends & family for Christmas, but we had a GREAT time!.

The Peppermill Hotel Casino is remodeling but it was not really noticeable to us.  We got there Christmas eve.  I was surprised how busy it was.  Christmas day everybody cleared out of the place, so by dinner time, there was no line to the Christmas buffet.  The food was great for a buffet!  I don’t normally go to buffets, but this one was really good and relaxing.  I usually do all the cooking for Christmas dinner so this was a treat for me!

We stayed in a spa suite.  It was wonderful and well worth the extra $$.  All the spa rooms also have a steam shower big enough for 2!  I love the steam shower…. (update 2/2012 – I think they took out all the steam showers in the renovation)

We had such a great time I am seriously thinking of making this a Christmas tradition for us.  It was relaxing and fun during a very busy time of the year for me.

Attn: Men – Fondue is Sexy Food!

Fondue Pot

 

I say, “attn: Men”, only because I think a woman would be more impressed with a fondue meal than a man would (but, I could be wrong). Fondues are fun and easy and women love them! If you want to impress your girl with a special meal and a romantic evening, what better way than to feed her crusty sour dough bread or fresh shrimp dipped in a creamy buttery cheese sauce, served with a nice cold chardonnay or just have dessert and serve fruit & angel food cake dipped in warm melted chocolate.

Nothing spoils a romantic evening more than a huge meal that fills you up and makes you want to go to sleep. A light meal of fondue and maybe a simple wedge salad is the perfect start to a wonderful romantic evening. Fondue is also fun! You have those long skinny forks which are perfect for feeding each other. 😉

Wharf Master’s Inn – Point Arena, CA

This place wWharf Masters Innas awesome. My husband and I really enjoyed it. Pt Arena is a tiny town located in Mendocino County just south of Ft. Bragg, Ca. What I liked about the Wharf Masters Inn was that every thing you needed was within walking distance we didn’t have to get in the car to drive anywhere. It is located on the hillside in a cove, I think all the rooms have balcony’s with beautiful views overlooking the cove & ocean. The rooms are nice and cozy, ours had a fireplace and a whirlpool tub.  The inn was built around the historical wharf masters house.  This is not a 5 star ritzy place, it is a rustic romantic ocean side getaway.

Down in the cove is a rocky beach, a fishing pier, a coffee shop, gift shop, pizza joint and a restaurant & bar. The restaurant & bar is nothing fancy, but don’t let that fool you, the service and food was exceptional. I was very impressed and look forward to going back.
