Man Candy Monday

Today's little bit of male sweetness comes to us straight from the football fields of New England.

The water really does something for me.
And his little butt chin...
Tom has been to 4 superbowls and won 3 of them. He sure knows how to handle that ball!
For a footballer he sure knows how to wear a suit!
Or nothing at all...
Mmmmm, wet t-shirt
He looks so sensitive in some of his shots
Sadly, this Stetson add is how I learned of Tom Brady. I am not much of a football fan.
Loving that 5 o'clock shadow
This weeks lady lumps comes as a suggestion from my very pregnant IRL friend, Laura over at Wringing out my Sponge. Laura is due to deliver anyday now and while our taste in men is a bit skewed...our taste in woman is spot-on. This week I give you Evangeline Lilly from LOST!

She has amazing eyes that truly speak before she can or does.
This one was for my sister...thought she would enjoy the half naked waterfall. I am sure you do too!
Her body and make-up both look amazabells in this one.
Sexy naked back:-)
Just sexy
She truly is a beautiful woman in every sense of the word.
With perfect skin
sexy pose
Fun and sexy pose. Love her!
Happy Monday, y'all!

Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. And today? Today is a gift. That's why we call it the present. ~Babatunde Olatunji

Life is always tossing challenges our way. We always have a choice. We can handle challenges with acceptance and peace or we can choose resistance and suffering. I have always been a believer in the power of the universe and fate. I know that all things happen for a reason. I know there is such a thing as unanswered prayers (and not just because Garth told me). I know that we all have a purpose in this life. I have spent the better part of the past 5 years seeking out my "purpose". I worked in the mortgage industry for years and I hated it. I tried insurance and failed. The bar scene was too much for me as a full time gig. When I got my current job I was desperate for work. I applied for anything that sounded like my background. My current job is a culmination of every job I have ever had in the past. As much as I don’t LOVE what I do, I think I do it better than most people could just because of my background and experience which is unique. I have been reading a lot lately about inner calm and peace and the key to all of that is being happy with what you have. I feel as if I follow this mantra pretty regularly (ok so I fall off of the wagon occasionally). That doesn’t just mean saying “ok, I am happy now. All is right with the world”. It means actually taking stock in life and appreciating what you have. I have a job. There are many who don’t. I can afford to eat, many cannot. I have a home, love of good people and my health. I have a fantastic family and some very great friends. These all may seem like basic things but that is what life is…extremely basic. When you add more obstacles, possessions, things in life you create the space for disappointment. The basics are important every day of your life.

I spent a lot of time in my life thinking about the past. I think of my parents’ mistakes in raising me as well as my own mistakes in growing up. All of that time and thought process brought me to one conclusion: I can’t change the past. This is where the choice comes in; I can accept the past for what is was and look for the blessings that were there or I can be angry, bitter and mad at the world. I choose to accept that what is has already happened and I cannot change it. Analyzing it does not guarantee that I won’t repeat it so fear of that only assists in holding me back. I have also spent a good deal of time recently thinking of the future. Where should I be? Where am I going? What is my purpose on earth? Purpose is what you do. My purpose right now is writing this blog and getting my words out to you. After that my purpose might be to avoid work a bit more before eating my lunch. If I look for 2nd jobs later, that will be my purpose then.

Again, this might seem very basic to some of you but I just had this awakening (shout out to Eckhart Tolle)so let me bask in it for a minute. I find myself sometimes wanting to control things and situations as a reaction to my past and lack of control. Once I recognize and accept this behavior it becomes much easier for me to see that control is not what is important. Being true to the moment you are in is all of our purpose in this life. If you are doing something, do it with all that you have. Know that things are ever changing and evolving and accept that no one has any control over what happens. That is part of destiny, of fate of living this crazy thing we call life. A big part of life is accepting what IS and sometimes also what IS NOT.

I have decided to give myself over to what IS. I cannot dwell on what used to be or what could be because the only thing that really matters is what IS. If what IS, is not what I believe should be then I will have faith that room is being made in my life for what truly IS. I have also learned that you cannot solely depend on fate. If you want something you have to put it out into the universe. You have to ask for it, make it known and work towards it. Make your actions reflect your dreams or passions. Go after everything in life with 100% and then even if you lose the job, the guy or the thing you wanted most…you know you gave it your personal best. That is the purpose of life and I am here to fulfill that mission within myself. I am present.

With the past, I have nothing to do; nor with the future. I live now. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

One problem with gazing too frequently into the past is that we may turn around to find the future has run out on us. ~Michael Cibenko

Don't let the past steal your present. ~Cherralea Morgen

There is no distance on this earth as far away as yesterday. ~Robert Nathan, So Love Returns

If you are still talking about what you did yesterday, you haven't done much today. ~Author Unknown
Don't let yesterday use up too much of today. ~Cherokee Indian Proverb

The past is a good place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there. ~Author Unknown

Waste not fresh tears over old griefs. ~Euripides, Alexander

The past is a guidepost, not a hitching post. ~L. Thomas Holdcroft

Having spent the better part of my life trying either to relive the past or experience the future before it arrives, I have come to believe that in between these two extremes is peace. ~Author Unknown

When one door closes another door opens; but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us. ~Alexander Graham Bell

If you worry about what might be, and wonder what might have been, you will ignore what is. ~Author Unknown

Man Candy Monday

This Monday's Man Candy makes my no-no throb. Mr. Channing Tatum is the king of the shirtless leading man roll. You probably remember him as a dancer in Step Up (1 and 2). He was also very hot and shirtless in Stop Loss, a movie that came out last year about the Iraq war. He is in GI Joe, which I have not seen yet. I learned today from my friends over at Wiki that his first paying job was as a dancer in Ricky Martin's, She Bangs video. More important than his acting chops however are his abs!

This is his sensitive lover look. He's got it down. Loving the scar on his cheek too!
Here we have the classic badboy...also well played. Although I could do without the wife beater under the jacket but...whatev.
This is the "I want your sex pose"....I am in.
Who doesn't love a good shower seduction scene? He seems to be experiencing Hanes OVERFLOW!
Love everything about this except the Jesus pick in the background....or whatever that is ruining my view.
Thanks a million to GQ for these...
Sexy office man by day...rugged firefighter at night!The chains on this one got me...
Our sweet lady lumps for this week are my very own choice. I personally think Meagan Fox is SUPER hot.

Frankly, I cannot believe that David Silver gets to sleep next to this each night.

I hear she's a real bitch...but with that body, who cares?The man candy and lady lumps are so much fun for me. I guess we can all see my type. What I want to know is...what is your type? Comment your ultimate guy and girl and check back to see if they don't just pop up here on a Monday post. Happy week to all!

My friend Laura over at Wringing out my Sponge created her very own award today. This might be TMI for some of you but if you read my blog you know its tough titty for you. I am especially proud of Laura (my friend IRL) for creating this award as she is 8 ½ months pregnant right now and sex is probably the last thing she thinks of before bed. The award is called Expose Yourself and here are the rules.

Tell us 3 things about your sex life. You can make them whatever you want and it doesn't necessarily have to pertain to your current partner (or a partner at all for that matter). You can talk about your likes or dislikes, your kinky fetishes or your secret desires. You can tell us a funny story about the time you were having sex in the woods with your old boyfriend and you both ended up with 1,000 tics. Whatever you want... it’s totally up to you!

1. I am a multiple orgasm girl. I blogged about
this a while back. I didn’t know until about 5 years ago and before I learned it about myself I had no idea it was possible. Up until that point I had always controlled sex in my relationships and believe it or not it was over when I was done. This was one of the most beautiful discoveries of my life. I have always enjoyed sex and I have always felt like I enjoyed sex more than the average woman. I definitely think about sex more than most women and I have usually been the instigator to sex in most of my relationships. I usually cannot get enough. I just recently found out that there are women who cannot orgasm from just vaginal sex. I had no idea this was an issue for A LOT of people. I think if women were less embarrassed and/or shamed by sex they could enjoy it a hell of a lot more. I blame the church and mothers who teach children that your sexual organs are your no-no area. I think if we were all brought up with a healthier body and sexual image we would not have the esteem issues that a lot of women do. It would probably go a long way towards a woman’s own self respect too.
2. I believe that masturbation is the key to a healthy sexual image and sex life. If you don’t know what you want how can you expect someone else to know? I started masturbating at a young age and I was never ashamed of it. I remember talking to my friends about it and being very open even in junior high. I am not a shy person so it doesn’t bother me in the least to masturbate in front of a boyfriend and I just recently learned that this is not true for everyone. Again, it goes back to feeling shame where your genitals are concerned. I spent many years as a single girl and I have never been one to sleep around so it was just me and my trusty vibrator for a long time. I found that I almost preferred it to most men after a while. Even when I am in a relationship I will masturbate a few times a week…or sneak it in in the showerJ I don’t understand women who are jealous of men masturbating or watching porn. Maybe it is because I also enjoy both but I feel like a man can enjoy some porn and his right hand or another woman…you decide. Clearly we all know where I stand.
3. I did not used to allow anyone south of the boarder. I cannot tell you why. I know at the time I felt very uncomfortable/self conscious with someone’s head in my crotch (no matter how well I knew them). I am most certain that the precious few who were allowed in my younger years had no idea what they were doing. I have personally never been with a woman and I think I am one of the few that has no desire. It is possible that the whole lesbian for a sister ruined the fantasy for me. I digress. I have discussed technique with my lesbian friends (not my sister) and I can assure you that there is a right and a wrong way. (If you are interested, I highly recommend talking to a woman vs. a man…just sayin’) It was not until a certain man who clearly enjoyed the giving of oral pleasure that I was able to let go of my insecurity and just enjoy. Ours was a tumultuous relationship but I will always think of him fondly for making me see the error in my ways. He actually had a hard time convincing me that:
a. He enjoyed it (and he really, really did)
b. I should enjoy it (I learned)
c. It was a completely natural act of loving someone (never how I saw it)

Like I said the relationship was rough but I will admit we had some good sexual chemistry. It also helped to have older women friends who were like “look at how a man enjoys a blowjob and mimic them”. Or another, “just throw your head back, close your eyes and forget he is there”. That one is my personal favorite…just sayin’. A big thanks to Laura for tagging me on this. It was actually quite fun! I am not tagging anyone as my bloggy friends have all been tagged. I am such a rebel!

Girls Weekend at the Lake!!!!!

The anticipation of this weekend nearly killed me. This was by far the best weekend that I have had yet in 2009. My friend Nichole passed her paramedic test a few weeks back and planned a girls weekend to her dad's house at the lake to celebrate. I was just complaining about my lack of summer relaxation and it was just around the corner from me. Work was unbearable on Friday. My co-worker who is also my boss' right hand was leaving town for a 2 week vacation and my normally tightly wound boss was in knots over it. I wanted to hurt him by noon. My entire day was a countdown to the lake. I went to the grocery store for girls weekend necessities after work: vodka, red bull and some food, in order of importance, of course. After that I still had to go home and pack my clothes which was really just a few bathing suits and some shorts. I picked up my friend Keeks at 6 from her house in Wentzville and we headed out of town. We almost missed our exit at Kingdom City because we were talking so much. We got to the house about 9:30 after a little directional confusion. We were both ready for a frosty beverage and the other girls agreed. We had a round table talk until 3am to start off the weekend. This was the view when we woke up....
I took my book and coffee down to the dock and just enjoyed the sounds, sights and smells of the lake. When I got back breakfast was almost ready so we ate, did a quick clean-up and got out to the sun. Nichole's mom convinced her dad to let her drive the boat so we had a lovely boat ride Saturday afternoon. Here is Captain Mama Holly!
I love this pic. That is Skylar on the left, Nichole in the middle and Keeks on the right.So HAPPY!
This was the view of the back of the house from the dock...or deck if you are Keeks!
Jasmine, Skylar, Keeks and Nichole
Nichole, Skylar, Keeks and me! The gang on the deck/
Deep thoughts...
Bumper boats! These things were a blast.
Loved it.
We don't want to go home but we have to...
As you can see it was a more than swell time! We built a wonderful bonfire after it down poured on Saturday and proceeded to sit out until all of the wood we collected was gone. We didn't have any bitchy, crabby or foul girls. There were only the 6 of us and we all got along great. No one was worried about make-up or dressing was all about girls relaxation and you could tell that each of us needed it as much as the next. Plus, Holly, Keeks and I were the only ones that were not trained emergency personel so we knew we were safe and there wasn't a sissy girl in the group. I think we headed to bed around 1:30 on Saturday. Sunday was another glorious wake-up with yummy breakfast and lots of fun. We chilled until about 2 and then headed back. I felt like a new woman on the way home.
We got back in town about 5pm. Dan's mom came to visit this weekend to see he and Bella since this was her last weekend with us before returning to her mom's house and school this week. They had a nice weekend just the 3 of them. Dan made dinner Sunday night and it was ready when I got home so we ate and then Bella and his mom headed out so she could take Bella home and visit with her sister for a while before heading back to Indiana. Dan and I got ice cream and enjoyed the silence of our home for a while. As we were laying down to go to sleep he told me that I should go away more often because I was way more relaxed and happy when I got home. I think he is just trying to get rid of me but hey, I am willing to do what is best for the team:-) I do feel like a new woman. Thanks to Nichole, her mom, Holly, my co-pilot Keeks and my new medic friends Jasmine and Skyla. I already can't wait until next year! Oh, and a shout out to Mr. Reckert for letting us crash at his crib!

Man Candy Monday----McSteamy

Mmmmm, mmmm good for this Monday morning. Dr. Mark Sloan from Grey's Anatomy wow's us with his perfect teeth, beautiful eyes and killer abs.

Love me a man in a suit! Grrrrr...

Nothing like a mountain backdrop to add to his pretty factor.

That grill, er,!

I will admit the phots below inspired this post...

And last but not least...I know all you can see is the happy face on his bowl!

And a VERY happy Monday to you!

Oh shit, I almost forgot a little bit of girly action for those who appreciate it. I don't know who these girls are but I did enjoy the shot. I hope you do too:-)
