Celebrating Smexy Style
I love to celebrate – and one of my favorite things to do when a happy occasion arises, is to go out to dinner. Hello cocktails! Since I was young, I have grown accustomed to the way my father dines out. Get to the restaurant at least 30 minutes before your reservation so you have time to order a pre-dinner cocktail at the bar. Once seated, no one is allowed to open their menus until you have ordered another cocktail and it is sitting in front of you. Then a round of appetizers and a full perusal of the wine list must be done. As you can see, celebrations with my family last many, many hours. We always toast, and we always have wonderful conversation and many laughs. It really doesn’t get any better. Sometimes we are celebrating important milestones, but many times we are just celebrating to celebrate.
Now being me aka “smexy”, I love to daydream about how I would celebrate with my fictional boyfriends. Which boyfriend would be best for each part of the evening? Oh the choices I have!
Cocktail Hour – This honor goes to Bones (Jeaniene Frost). Bones is a very sexy, british vampire and I would love to share a martini with him. He would make me laugh and I bet he would let me suck the olives off of his toothpick.
Appetizer – The appetizer is quick, therefore, Ethan (Chloe Neill) would be great for a quick bite (he can bite me anywhere he wants). He is intense, serious, and I bet he loves crab puffs.
Salad course – Oh the salad – the raw, crunchy course – who else could eat my croutons than Terrible (Stacia Kane). Terrible seems like he might need a few vegetables and vitamins in his diet. I would even wipe the salad dressing out of his mutton chops.
Main Course – I’ve thought long and hard about whom I would spend the most time with at dinner. Someone good at conversation and chews with his mouth closed. I would love to eat dinner with Catullus Graves (Zoe Archer). Catullus is all gentlemen, and sexy as hell. He loves freckles and I would let him count my freckles all night.
Dessert – There is only one man I can think of that I would share dessert with – Mark St. Crow (Lilli Feisty). And for those that know of Mark St. Crow – we all know what dessert I would order – strawberry shortcake. (Mark does verra naughty deeds with strawberries).
So there is my fantasy celebratory dinner. Now, who’s hungry?
Many, many congratulations to Jen for a wonderful first year of blogging. She is such a joy to talk with and I love her insightful reviews. Congrats Jen and thank you so much for asking me to be part of it.

  1. Wonderful post ladies! Mandi, your choices are remarkable. It seems that you’ve been doing a lot of thinking about your fictional boyfriends lately with your posts on the Island and now here. Poor poor you…such a chore thinking about all the things you’d do with your book boyfriends. I am so sorry for your harsh times. 😉
    Congrats Jen and Happy Birthday on Sunday!

  2. Julie – it’s a tough job!

    Amy – Barrons is my lover awaiting me at home! Don’t tell him I went out with other boys!

  4. Awesome post Mandi! Just plain old amazing. 🙂 I have honestly only read Jeaniene Frosts books but I have seen reviews for the other ones your book boyfriends came from…just so creative! I’m sure that helped Jen celebrate this awesome month in many ways. 😛
