An Unexpected Dinner Party

There were butterflies, the thrill of anticipation, and moments of giddy excitement from the time I noticed my Band of Thieves Membership list was missing this morning, until the time I received a text from Eric. Suddenly, all thoughts of Blogland were gone and I was full speed ahead in party planning mode.

"Sweet Pea, I know it's last minute but Ben is sick so we are having 14 out-of-town dinner guests tonight! I'll take care of the food.  Please get the house ready. Going into a meeting. Text you soon."

A few days ago, Eric had mentioned that his partner would be hosting a dinner for a number of clients from other states.  I thought little of it as I never attend client events but only go to the annual work functions his company puts on. 14 people?! Thank goodness I only work a half-day on Fridays.

I raced home at noon.  By then I had received a few additional bits of information so I vacuumed, cleaned off counters, lemon pledged the furniture, and put on a little black dress.  Our dining table seats eight and the kitchen table seats six, so I was able to accommodate fourteen even though the party goers would be eating in two different rooms.

Eric got home around 5:30 pm, with a huge bouquet of beautiful orange and yellow flowers. I split it into two vases and decorated each table while my husband prepared dinner. He told me the food would be ready at 7, with our guests arriving about 6:30 pm. He was happy and all smiles, proud of the way the house and his wife looked.  He kissed me, tucked my hair behind my ear, and whispered "I'd hit that" as he reached under my dress and lightly smacked my bottom. He was flirty and fun, the relaxed easy-to-be-with man I'd fallen for five years ago.

"I'm going to make place cards," Eric said, shuffling through the desk drawer and pulling out my calligraphy pen and some card stock. "Would you mind running to the store for dessert? I've still got to change before everyone arrives."

I zipped out the door for a peach pie and a couple pints of ice cream.  When I was in line for checkout, Eric text, "Hurry Amy. Everyone is here."

Twenty minutes later I pulled into our garage and heard music coming from the house.  I opened the door and was greeted with a passionate kiss from my sexy husband.  He was wearing my favorite shirt and pants; classy, black, and fitted. He took the bags from me and went into the kitchen.  The house smelled of his famous carne asada but was empty except for the two of us.

"Where is everyone?" I asked. "I thought you said they were all here."

Eric grinned and handed me a crystal wine glass full of sparkling grape juice. He raised a matching glass and toasted, "They're all here, Amy Lynn.  Everyone is seated at the tables."

Confused, I looked at the kitchen table.  The flowers were gorgeous, placed in the center of a festive looking table cloth with matching napkins tucked in copper rings.  At each seat, was a small folded place card with a name sketched across it.

I looked at the first name.

"Jan"

Next to it, "Lindy".

By the third name, "Ella", there was no doubt who our guests were to be.

I gulped and every nerve in my body sprang to life.  Eric was beside himself with pleasure.

"Tonight, my naughty Amy Lynn, you will meet your band of thieves first hand."

He gestured toward the table once more and then I saw it, on the chair under the place card "Ronnie" was a blind wand.  My eyes grew wider as I went from chair to chair; each with an implement resting on the seat.

Eric beamed.  He had been planning this for days; planted seeds and set me up just perfectly.  Having been apart for quite some time, I had been reading the blogs to him during some of our calls. At one point, Baker was having people suggest names for a new paddle of theirs.  Ella's husband and some of the others had also named various implements.  Eric decided the Band of Thieves would each earn a place in our discipline box.

Honestly, we spent a rather romantic evening during our "dinner party".  We ate, danced, and chatted in between "meeting" and "spending time" with each of our guests. One by one, Eric would say something like, "Amy, I'd like you to meet Penny," and then he'd put me over his knee and give me ten good swats with our newly named implement.  This went on for a couple of hours; silly, seductive, and spankie all in one.

I was introduced to the following:
Penny - Riding Crop
Katie t - Belt
Terpsichore - Hair brush
Ronnie - Blind Wand
PK - School stick
Blondie - Eric's Favorite Strap
Jan - Leather paddle with three red hearts
Leigh - Ping Pong Paddle
Meredith - Slotted wooden spoon
DelFonte - Wire hanger
Ella - Cheese Board
Rosie Jones - Flogger
Lindy - Wooden spoon

At the end of the evening, Eric brought out the big gun, "Sir Strap" and asked me if we should rename it Jz since she was the original thief; though she'd been given permission. ;)  I took ten in her honor and with cheeks on fire, we called it a night.

Music turned down, lights low, Eric and I made our way to the bedroom.  We opened the chest and tucked each of our implements away, reminding each other who was who.

"Better behave, Amy Lynn, or Blondie will be coming to visit."

"If you get mouthy, young lady, you'll be spending some time with Meredith or Ella."

My silly man.  I love how much attention he pays to what is important to me.  I truly appreciate all of my Blog friends and for those of you who played along and became a thief, we now have an implement named after you.  And for those of you who didn't play but just followed along, thank you for being there.

As for thieving? I have definitely learned my lesson.  It is TOTALLY WORTH IT.

  1. Well, all I can say, Amy Lynn, is that your Eric ought to win some kind of award for original implementation (double meaning here) of his sweet threat! Well done, Eric!

    It actually reminds me of a sweet Cassie and Tom story in one of PK's wonderful books. Romantic and loving and dominant.

    Congrats to You Both Says Ella

    1. Thank you Ella. We ended up having a wonderful weekend - many conversations with our band of thieves. Good times. Eric cracked up that you called me Amy Lynn. Lol. If you ever need it, by the way, his middle name is Michael. "Eric Michael! Coyote ears!!" :D

    1. Hey Meredith, I could be beyond sore right now but Eric was truly kind and we were having so much fun, he took his time. Each spanking was a conversation in and of itself. Too fun. Amy

    1. I share so much of everyone's posts with Eric. He really did come up with the whole dinner party idea because I talk about Blog Friends as though we really are all pals. I guess we are, be it virtual friendships. You'll have to let me know what Hoss thinks. Eric did not bring out the bath brush otherwise I would have suggested it be named after you. ;)

    1. You got that right, Jan. Isn't it funny how after all this time, you really get to know each other just from the posts. Eric said there was no doubt that we were naming the hearted paddle after you. You are always one of the first comments on everyone's posts and you always sign "love Jan,xx". :) Amy

  5. What an imaginative man you have there, Amy! Just goes to show that crime does pay in some circumstances. I hope the flogger named after me is one of the nice, sensuous, ones.

    1. Eric does pay attention and recalled that you were the caring friend who did not want me beaten for roping you into my thieving band. ;) So yes, the flogger. Always on the sensual side. Yum.

  6. Eric, you earn a prize for coming up with such a fabulous idea. Ouch Amy, you must be sore after all those implements from your dinner guests. Hope you're not on the receiving end of the wooden spoon too often. Not my favourite implement at all.

    What an enjoyable evening though. We'll all have to band together again for some fun.
    Hugs Lindy xx

    1. Hi Lindy, We have some pretty wicked implements but Eric brings that wooden spoon out when he is making a point. I caused a tree to go up in flames once (that's a whole other story) and we had a conversation about that before I found myself over his knee. Out of nowhere came that darn spoon and I was kicking and squealing in no time.
      Amy
      PS- Yes, yes! Bring on the Band of Thieves. I'm sure we could find some sort of trouble to get into. ;)

    1. We did have fun Laurel. It was a fabulous date; dancing and dining with each other and our guests. Our guests, by the way, were very good at getting their points across. Persistent bunch, they were. LOL

  8. Hi Amy,:) Way to go, Eric!!! Creative, romantic, spanky and loving, that special man of yours went all out for you. What a special surprise. Sounded like a fabulous evening.

    I hope that when Eric picks up that belt, that it is yummy, and hot Hot HOT, and enjoyable. Rob doesn't use that often- but our spatula gets a lot of business. LOL! Happy for you both! Many hugs,

    <3 Katie

    1. Hello Katie t,
      That belt holds a very near and dear place in my heart. Eric and I had been talking about spanking for awhile when he decided to really let me have it - my first "real" spanking. We were at home and he bent me over the couch. I thought I'd get a few whacks with his hand but suddenly he went full speed ahead: raised my dress and took off his belt! We were both shocked!! It hurt more than I expected but it was also way more hot, Hot, HOT than either of us anticipated as well. That belt hangs in our closet so I see it every morning and every night when I change clothes. It's special to both of us.

  10. And here I was thinking, "I can't play along - I asked and received permission..."
    I forgot all about the intrinsic sneakiness of doms!
    :-D
    Glad I got to be part of the party somehow.
