Turning Me On

So I didn't participate in Girl Talk Thursday because I am a chicken shit. If you want to know what it was about, click the image below and go check it out. Or, don't and just read here and this week's post.

This week: What turns you on?

To start - my husband - with his amazing eyes and smile and rock solid legs and ass. For sure. Plus he's brilliantly smart, and interesting, and funny. Love you babe!

And then there's other things, here, in no particular order (and by no means a complete list):

1. The smell of clean laundry.
3. A few drinks - being tipsy not sloppy.
4. A clean and orderly house - Sooo... like I'm never gonna get this one but the idea of nothing hanging over my head at night, no dirty dishes, no crumbs on the floor, no cluttered countertops, no goldfish crumbs in the carpeting, a clean bathroom, laundry all folded, hung and put away... OMG I'm dying. I could relax and get a little funky. Seriously.
5. Sleep.
6. My husband going to a bachelor party last weekend and telling me about one of the pole dancers who flipped upside down and danced with her feet on the ceiling. Yo. I, like, wanna go see that.
7. Going on dates with my husband - oh to be away from the kids for just a little while, love them as I do, is so nice.
8. Sexy movies.
9. Watching amazing athleticism (not in a bed) - like professional dancers, gymnasts, swimmers, divers, horseback riding. There is something raw, emotional, watching these people put themselves out there and have it be art in motion.
10. Music - not the bow-chicka-wow-wow kind either. Music that changes, is fast, slow, hard, soft, that flows seamlessly and makes sense, is sensual... definitely a turn on when something cuts deep like that.
11. Laughing, like rolling on the floor, can't stop laughing but can't breathe either.
12. Vanilla candles, clean smells, men's cologne
13. Sleep. I know I said that already but being well rested just makes EVERYTHING better, ya know?
14. A small amount of privacy. Being a mom to small kids means I don't get privacy unless they are sleeping and my husband is at work. But that usually means I'm working and/or cleaning. Just the idea of personal time, to myself, is hot.

So what turns you on? Come on, you know it was this post, right?

Sleep! How did I forget sleep?

Yeah, sex when tired doesn't happen.

OMG Clean sheets! I should have read everyone else's lists before I made my own.

Sleep....what was that again?

Sleep, sweet sleep. I didn't think of that but then, who can sleep when you haven't had more than three hours in a row for six months?

Definitely a big YES to the rolling around on the floor laughing. That always leads somewhere good.

YES, I LOVE love love clean sheets too, and when the pillows are fresh out of the wash/dryer...ah, bliss.

Mine will be up shortly. (that's what he said)
