And we are back!
Wait? Hold on a minute. You did not miss us? You did not realize we were even gone!
Well, that is because we did a good job hiding it.
Actually, it was because of LOL days that you probably did not notice. While away I was still able to check the comments and do blog hopping during the drive. Then when we had a few minutes here or there I would try to check in as well. It worked out well and I was very tickled with all the sweet comments.
A few of you may be wondering what in the world I have been up to. Well, Hoss and I had a very lovely, much needed weekend away. Let me share about it…
We left town on Friday and headed towards our destination of a lovely bed and breakfast. This particular bed and breakfast has a little house that does double duty with one side as a massage area and the other as a romantic suite. It is away from the main house, so thankfully we had lots of privacy.
Friday evening, once all settled we met a friend for dinner. Not just any friend though. Hoss and I ventured out to meet one of my favorite bloggers, Cat. http://gigglesgrinsandreflections.blogspot.com
. I was so nervous and Hoss was so sweet. He kept a lookout as we arrived first and when she arrived I was almost speechless. That did not take long to remedy! We chatted for way too long and even had a brief Facetime with Lindy over from Downunder Dreaming http://donwunderdreaming.blogspot.com
sadly we were all having too hard a time hearing one another to Facetime long, but still was so happy to visit with both ladies.
Cat was extremely considerate to Hoss, providing him (more than me), two new spanking implements (a lovely plastic cutting board and a spoon that read heat resistant to up to 400 degrees!) as well as pop rocks. Apparently, her plan was for Hoss to attempt to match the shade of red. By the way, 400 degrees is not recommended for a spanking temperature just in case anyone was wondering! Your loved one may very well be overdone at that point. Just saying! Not a fun game if you ask me.
I questioned the idea of pop rocks, but after quite a long pause (I was probably as red as our new implements) I was given the gist of what the pop rocks were for. If you are interested and as naive as I am, ask Cat the answer to that one. I’m not sharing. Turning red again just thinking about it.
We left only after Hoss informed us the wait staff was getting eager to leave (who closes at 8:30 on a Friday anyway?) and Hoss and I headed back to our bed and breakfast. Well, after a bit of relaxation in the Jacuzzi we were headed off to bed. The next morning we kept ourselves quite entertained as breakfast was not served until late (well, late for us early risers). You would think on vacation we would sleep in. That was not the case and after some fun with the flogger and a quick shower we were off for breakfast.
No problem, right? While enjoying our breakfast the owner asked if we needed anything. I asked for our towels to be refreshed. Nothing more. Thinking they would bring some by when we returned from breakfast. What did we stumble on as we returned to our room? The owner cleaning up our room. He was making our bed. Hoss, being the sweet man he is, jumped in to help him. I stood silently watching them both chatter away when my eyes wandered to the chair next to the bed. Guess what lay there, folks?
NOT, where we left it! Yes, it had been on the bed. I left the room for the en suite. Um, fresh towels, check. Bertha, Loopy and Cheese (Bea) visible on the top of our suitcase, check again! I flushed a shade of red even my bum could not achieve even after a bad spanking and returned to see Hoss thanking the owner for the help. The owner left and I turned to Hoss and said, “Can you believe it?”
Hoss looked confused.
“Did you notice anything wrong?”
Hoss shook his head.
“Did you notice where the flogger is?” The light dawned in his eyes and that man….that man of mine…..
He began to laugh!
“No, you don’t understand!” I informed him, “We left the flogger on the bed!”
His laugh continued.
“Do you want to know what’s worse?” He shook his head. “Bertha and the others are out in plain sight!”
He really roared with laughter then. Hoss just did not get it. He was not embarrassed, but I was 50 shades of red at that point.
I shook my head thinking my man had lost it. This was embarrassing, not funny. I sent off a text to Cat hoping for a bit of understanding, perhaps, maybe a bit of sympathy. Can you believe it! She just laughed right along with Hoss!
You are all laughing along too...well, maybe it is a teensy weensy bit funny. Now, that I step away and think about it, I can enjoy a giggle too. Just at the time, embarrassment had too firm a grasp on my thoughts.
The rest of our day was fairly uneventful and very restful. We ate well, enjoyed one another’s company, had a bit of adult fun and I actually fell asleep early for once! The next morning I was relieved to see the owners were not serving breakfast even though I had been careful to pack the toys away before leaving our room. We then headed out for another visit with Cat.
We were caught up with lunch, talking and the football game on tv. We did talk ttwd/dd and I will inform you that it is not wise to let Cat explain what a barn burner is to an unknowing husband. No, need to share why that is, but I can let you know it is totally an unnecessary conversation to have!
It was a lovely weekend and I am so thankful we were able to have some downtime away. I do want to thank those who took a few moments to stop by and wish us a happy LOL day. I hope I was able to get around to everyone else’s place and say hello. Thanks again to Hermione at Hermione’s Heart (http://hermionesheart.blogspot.com
) for hosting LOL Day #12.
If, by chance, you did wanted to leave a comment and have not, I’m always here. Well, not always, but I do check in regularly and I’m happy to meet an un-lurker anytime!
Have a lovely day!
