1992. Do the math. That’s twenty-two years ago. Twenty-two years since I first met my husband in that college cafeteria. Twenty-two years since I went up to him while he was eating breakfast with my friend Jennifer and said something along the lines of “Hi, I am Kerri, who are you?” Oh yes, at 17 (17!!) I was the epitome of cool. I took the freedom to be spontaneous (and sometimes a bit ridiculous) and I embraced it.
Twenty-two years later. We celebrate our 8th anniversary next March (hey sometimes it takes people awhile to figure these things out.) First of all, I do not have the same energy I did as a 17 year old, nor do I have the flexibility, or the stamina or the… well, you get the idea. While the sheets still see action, it’s not really the same kind of action. And the freedom to be spontaneous? It’s a whole new story.
Ok, first off, do you know how hard it is to find time to well, you know when you have THREE KIDS. I mean, clearly we have THREE KIDS so we do still find the time, but it does get harder. I totally confess to imposing impromptu nap times to orchestrate getting needs met. Or bribing with movies. Or locking doors…
And then the bedroom looks like this. Yes, that’s a kids pillowcase. And my laptop. I sometimes hide in the bedroom to work.
Not exactly romantic, right?
Since we’re headed into winter break, I thought I’d do a mini bedroom makeover to make those moments a little more fun. I picked up some LED candles (because who has time to find matches), new flannel sheets (I promise, flannel can lead to passion) and a new (very short) nightgown. Don’t let the plaid fool you. We all know about school girls right?
Oh, and K-Y ® Liquibeads. Those are the KEY to being ready to go at a moments notice. Okay, let me tell you, this is genius. Why should men get all the ready to go goods? This personal lubricant is my answer to being ready (along with that cute new nightgown).
1. The K-Y® Liquibeads comes with a little applicator sorta like, well, you know that thing you use during certain times of the month.
2. You just insert a bead into the applicator.
3. Then insert the loaded applicator into your, well, you know, once every few days and you’ll always be ready.
4. If you are pregnant or nursing, you should first consult a doctor before using.

Winter break is coming up, time is going to be limited. Here’s to hoping the mini bedroom makeover inspires us to spice things up a little, with or without the mistletoe, thanks to K-Y® Liquibeads. And here’s to twenty-twenty two more years.
