“My inner goddess has her sequins on and is warming up to dance the rumba.”
― E.L. James, Fifty Shades Freed
This is not a normal post for me…no gardening, cooking, or simple living ideas. This is just pure, naughty fun. I will give you a little disclaimer before I jump right in…I normally do not read books like 50 Shades of Grey. This was actually my first time reading anything of this genre. With that being said, there is something freeing about doing something so out of your comfort zone.
50 Shades of Grey was my book clubs reading choice this past month and boy did we have a good time! I flew through the trilogy in two weeks texting my friends every step of the way disbelieving what I was actually reading. I don’t want to give too much away to what this book is about…some of you may even stop following me when you find out. But this is a blog about my life and I am not going to make it look perfect for the masses. I had an amazing time at this party, am excited to show you all of the fun things my friend created, and had a great time reading this series. If you are daring enough and don’t take yourself too seriously I highly suggest some quality time with Mr.Christian Grey…wink wink.
If you haven’t figured it out yet 50 Shades of Grey is a romance…bordering on erotica novel. Ok, don’t close the computer just yet…give me a chance to explain. The first book is a little heavy in the romance department but you soon become attached to the characters and their struggles and before you know it you are on the last page of the trilogy. This book is not going to win any literary awards but it was a fun summer pick.
My friend put together an amazing 50 Shades themed party for our monthly book club meeting. It was so fun to get together with a great bunch of ladies, kick our feet up, and have one heck of a time. Here are some photos of her amazing, romance themed party dishes…
The hostess was also the same girl that turned me onto the Adult Raspberry Pink Lemonade. We used this delicious drink for the party except changed the name. My friend sassed the martini up with a garnish of raspberries and zip tie. If you have read the book this will all make sense…wink wink.
Anna’s Blush Martini
2 Shots Pink Lemonade Vodka…I used this kind UV Pink Lemonade Vodka
2 Shots Citrus Vodka…any brand will do
1 Shot Raspberry Mixer or a raspberry puree
1 Shot Lime Juice
Combine ingredients, shake with ice in a martini shaker, pour into glass and serve with a zip tie raspberry
My whole point to this blog post is not to shock you but actually to show you some cute, inexpensive ways to spice up a party. Homemade fruit picks, simple decorations, or custom naming your dishes is a fun way to create an experience. I did the same thing for Big C’s Star Wars birthday party this year. Here are a couple of photos…
Summer is time to lighten things up and throw a good party. It was so fun to meet some new ladies, have a nice drink, and laugh all night long. My abs actually were sore the next day from all of the laughing. Our next book club pick is Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand. See, we are not always naughty! Unbroken is about WWII….a far cry from smutty romance.
Well, back out into the garden for me. Most of my plants should be in by the end of the week and I am looking forward to seeing the garden flourish in all of its glory. Thanks again for stopping by Throwback Road and have a great day.
