Two professional women: both married with kids and both juggling clients, reports, potty training, packed lunches, chores, dogs, cats, errands, husbands and …”what was that you said? SEX?”
That three-letter word that once was so frequent, so liberating, so yummy has been sidelined in a sea of life, work and snot.
It is time.
Time to put sex back on a pedestal by injecting some extra spice into our relationships.

Mission 36: Red Lips

The nurses on BBC’s “Call the Midwife” recently went to a dance that had Nurse Jenny Lee sporting some sumptuous red lips, which left us with a keen understanding of exactly why Jimmy’s so crazy about her. This week, leave the comfort of your favorite mauves, pinks, browns and frosts, and wear a rich red […]

Hot Pregnant Woman

I should have requested a revision on the language for Mission 34 because there is absolutely no way to feel sexy when you are this pregnant, which I discovered the hard way. My first attempt was to buy a sleek undergarment that would suck all my jiggly bits in, allowing me to properly wear the blue […]

Something Borrowed

There comes a point when talking about sex that you just have to stop talking. Sex is fabulous, sex is fun, sex is liberating, sex is a stress reliever, sex is sexy but sex isn’t something that everyone wants to talk about ALL OF THE TIME.  At least mostly everyone.   There are always exceptions.  A […]

Mission 35: 9 1/2 Weeks

We intended to post this one when Miss Lee was 9 1/2 weeks out from having Lee 4, but the post-coital hangover Duchess referenced this week took over. So, with eight weeks left, we want you to bring something from your kitchen other than olive oil into the bed this week. Technically speaking, you should […]

Mission 34: Something Purdy

Think of the occasions you’ve bought something pretty for of late: clothes for the kids to wear on Easter Sunday, a new black blazer for work, yoga pants that aren’t stained or torn. Now, think of the occasions you used to buy something pretty for. Inspired by the bedazzled stripper shoes the Duchess wore to the fancy […]

As Good as It Gets

My senior year of college, I wrote a paper about the movie “As Good as It Gets”. The assignment coincided with my life’s most dramatic romantic struggle between the obviously not meant for me boyfriend I kept as a crutch, and the Australian that had swooped in unexpectedly to remind me what romance could feel like. Tonight, as I was […]

Son of a…

The babysitter told me yesterday that Lee 2 looked out at the rain and said, “Son of a bitch.” I was astonished not because she had ever heard the expression, nor because she was so bothered by some light precipitation, but because she actually knew the end of the saying. I generally leave it at “Son of a…” […]

A Sense of Beauty

Mr. Lee and I got dolled up last weekend to go to a fancy schmancy wedding while my mother-in-law babysat. He wore his vintage Versace tie his mother gave him, and I wore my best jewels, which his mother had also given me. I got my nails done, indulging in the fancier “milk and honey” pedicure at […]

Mission 33: Role Play

The origins off Miss Lee’s pseudonym lie in an early role play she enacted with Mr. Lee, one she swears she’ll never disclose (and she’ll disclose ANYTHING). This week, pick two characters – cheerleader/football hero, nurse/patient, pool boy/lonely mafia wife – and let it play out. While the point is to have some fun with […]
