Okay let me start by saying I apologize in advance if the below post is alittle to “risque” for anyone’s taste. I pride myself on just being a down to earth kind of lady who with limitations likes to share whatever is on my mind and I am hoping that’s what my readers will enjoy and grow to love about me. With that said continue on below and by the way that is not me or my husband in the picture above :)

I titled this entry that above only because I decided to go in depth alittle about some normal but intimate thoughts that I’m sure alot of us spouses go through when our partners are deployed. Although I know the vast majority of us don’t enjoy deployments TDY’s etc, I do find these separations a chance to try new things and I also have fun preparing for that first night of their return.

So after all those long drawn out thoughts I sit here with 8 tabs open on my browser, three of them include Frederick’s Of Hollywood,Victoria Secret and Hips & Curves. In my deepest fantasies I want to be quite erotic with 6 inch red pumps , a garter belt , and pinned up hair that falls into a cascade of curls when I shake it out .

Haaaaaa writing that last sentence above made me bust out laughing because while it could happen ummm no! I mean I’m no prude but I am accident prone and spending a romantic night at the onpost Acute Care Clinic with a sprained ankle isn’t exactly on my list of plans.

In any event anytime the hubby is deployed I find myself always day dreaming about him coming home and how we are gonna have this whole new improved intimate life (Not that their is anything wrong with it but after a few months of not doing it, their is always something to improve). I am currently working on making those fantasies reality and have created a list below of things I am working on for the first night he is home which I have entitled *ahem) The Grand Opening (go on and laugh…I am).

1. Making a Playlist
Yeah I am not the greatest downloader( Yea I know that’s probably not even a real word) so I headed on over to Youtube and started searching for some of my favorite romantic songs.

2. New Candles
I am going to head on over to Ross and restock my candle supply. Their are some great “get the mood going” candles and Ross always has the best ones, you just have to really search through their stuff.

3. Comforter Set
Yup along with those candles I am getting a brand new comforter set. I figure hubby has been sleeping on a piece of metal for the last few months , the least I can do is have a nice plush bed waiting for him.

4. Night time Attire
Last but not least is the “evening attire” it’s not necessarily a must…but why the heck not?
As I mentioned I am working on that part and I am sure it will be a winner hehe!

So ladies I want to know when hubby is away for any reason do you try to make his “homecoming” special? Feel free to share in the comments portion below.

Again I hope no one finds this post offensive :)

Hooah and Smooches
