I am not getting vulgar here people,but, if you are not legal or easily offended-click away now!
That said..I know I have mentioned before that I love sex.I am married and 30 but that doesn't mean I have to stop doing something I truly enjoy does it? I like variety,I live for spice..it's natural and healthy.I know kids take away some time..trust me I know but even a little time can be a lot of fun if you try. I was browsing around for some fun new items at EdenFantasys when I came across some really cute VValentine's themed items I wanted to share.
With it's cute carrying pouch,colored design and Pyrex,temperature retaining glass..this is a sure pleaser.Icicles No.12
Now what lady doesn't want a rose right? I think you could honestly set this out and nobody would know what it was.Microwaveable and freezable,this could warm things up or cool them down.
These glass toys are non-porous and hypoallergenic
Heart Print Bustier and g String
Put them in water,set them on a dish or drip them on a lover,these cute heart candles would make a great gift to give or receive.There is a large range in the gifts that can be given for Valentines,so no matter how intimate your relationship,you can find something that suits your needs.
These are just a few of my favorites,but there are many more to choose from.The ordering process is a snap and the compare and search options make browsing simple and fun.My items have always come in plain packaging with no clue as to what's inside,so your privacy is protected too.For the perfect Valentines gift hurry over and check them out.

With Valentines Day approaching fast,it is time to start thinking about gifts for that special someone.I was browsing around looking at things yesterday when the Princess came in the room and asked what I was doing.I told her looking for Valentines gifts and of course she thought I meant for her so she points at the screen and says,"I want that one" to a huge,heart-shaped box of chocolate.I agree with her,I want one too!
Over the course of my life I have selected some wild gifts for Valentines and done some crazy things too.I once sent my man a balloon with a big smiling picture of me on it.Another time I though I would go the sexy route and get myself a new lingerie ensemble to show off for my sweetie..too bad he came home with a few friends and no warning for me.I have dedicated a song on the radio,sent flowers to work,even made myself into a chocolate treat..all for the one I loved (or thought I did at the time).
You can go check out their selection of Valentines Day Cards and accessories to find just what you need. They offer cards for adults,kids and even a selection of stickers and tags to make the perfect gift.My son Aiden would love this card..we call him monkey and this reminds me of him.
I like that they have cards to suit everyone.My boys freaked out when I told them kids give each other Valentines in school.Gage made it a point to tell me no way was he giving lovey cards to the other boys in his class.I tried to explain that he can pick cards to suit his style but I don't think he believed me at all.

In case anyone didn't watch the hard hitting game yesterday..the Steelers beat the Ravens 31 to 24.Although both teams gave it a good try (and both made some stupid mistakes),the Steelers once again came out victorious.I myself believe the score would have been even more had the officials not been set against the Steelers from the start; but in the end,the best team won.Now only 1 more victory to go until they are in yet another Super Bowl..Go Steelers!!!!!

The top gift on my oldest sons list this year was a guitar.Gage told me he would do without anything else if necessary to get one.Because Gage is only 9,I didn't want to invest tons of money into something he might get bored with or just decide he didn't like.When my mom asked what the kids wanted this year,I passed on Gage's message to her so she decided to make this her main gift to Gage.
You would think this would make me happy right? Well maybe if that didn't involve me tracking down a guitar that could be handled by a very rough 9 year old boy,in specific colors,with an amp and accessories included at a reasonable price! This was no easy feat.I started off by searching for electric guitars using my favorite search and win site.. Swagbucks. After hours of roaming looking from site to site to find just what I needed,I came across Heartland America. I had never been to this site and figured it would take forever to find what I wanted but thankfully the search for junior electric guitar resulted in the perfect find.There it was,right in front of me..Gage's perfect gift!
The Spectrum Custom Pro Guitar features a maple neck and fingerboard with jumbo frets, glossy black finish, black pick guard, it has an adjustable truss rod, tremolo arm, 5-way pickup selector switch, two tone controls, volume control plus 10 professionally recorded backing tracks. Comes with plug-n-play mini amp, guitar strap, extra set of strings, cleaning cloth and picks! I found this at Christmas so I got an amazing deal.Normally $129.99, I got this for only 69.99! Plus because of their promotion at the time,I got free shipping with tracking which is normally $7.95. I also added a 1 year product agreement for only 4.99 reduced from $9.99. All in all I had it paid in full at only 74.98 from the normal price of 146.92!
Right now you can get this same package for $89.99 plus 3.95 shipping.Yes it is more than I paid but still a great discount price!
To say Gage was thrilled with his present would not be doing it justice..Gage loved his "big" gift,but you can bet he was gad he didn't have to do without any other ones too.

Now,I am not a fan of either team,but, being a betting person,my pick was of course.Philli..boy was I wrong!I have to say Vick just didn't look like he wanted it today.From delayed throws to just plain bad ones,he was not showing much for those looking to recruit him.Of course the bad catches,dropped balls and missed opportunities didn't help the cause any either.I expected much more from them as a team,but then again a team follows it's leader and well..in my opinion,they didn't have much to follow.
Green Bay did a good job of shutting down their offensive drives and Philli just couldn't get it done.Now it's off to face Atlanta Saturday for the Packers.Although they did a good job tonight,I don't see them doing the same thing to Atlanta.My pick for the game is definitely the Falcons..they just don't play around and I see them putting it all over Green Bay.
