Anywho. I'm handing it over to Jill for the day. Yall give her a big welcome and lots of comment love :) ~anna

Hello, Herding Cats & Burning Soup! Thanks so much for the invite. I have a very important topic to discuss to kick off this illustrious event!


I love mustaches.

It’s December 1st, which means the weather is finally cooling down in Southern California. It’s a great time to be alive and in possession of two good eyes for admiring bearded men. They’re out and about in droves. I even have one at home! My husband doesn’t sport a mustache-only, but he grows an excellent beard, so I’ll keep him.

Sadly, mustaches don’t get as much love as beards. Some women find them creepy, silly, outdated or unkempt. They’re reminiscent of 70s porn stars and Wild West gunslingers. Maybe that’s part of the appeal for me. Mustaches aren’t for everyone. It takes a special kind of man to rock a stash, and a special kind of woman to appreciate his offbeat style. I can roll with a pervy, dirty, smoking hot outlaw-type. I’m into city hipsters and woodsy mountain men. Hell, I’ll take a carnie. I don’t mind weird and wild.

But I realize that I’m not going to convert the mustache-averse with an extreme selection. Not all mustaches are weird or dirty or cigarette-stinky. Some are suave, sophisticated and very, very sexy. I searched the internet for the finest examples. These mustaches will please even the most discriminating lady.

I’ll start with an easy one. The Western:

If you’re in a TV show called Deadwood, you sport a mustache. It’s what you do. The look is so popular in Westerns that we don’t even question it. A Wild West mustache is always acceptable. And hot.

Here’s another familiar mustache. The Pro Athlete:

I’m not a fan of Green Bay, and Aaron Rodgers isn’t my favorite QB to look at (he’s no Russell Wilson)—but his cuddly football mustache is a win.

This mustache is from Spain. It’s subtle, but stellar.

In my search for the sexist mustache ever, I found a clear stand-out. Behold the bewhiskered beauty of Jarrod Scott.

He can give you a tough-guy sailor mustache.

He cleans up nice, too.

Still not convinced? How about now?

I can’t get enough mustaches! They’re right there above the mouth, which is a sexy place to be.

Mustaches make you think about kissing and other oral activities. They’re cozy, like a beard, but they don’t interfere with a man’s chiseled jaw and strong chin. Mustaches are truly the best of both worlds. Uber-masculine, adventurous, mature and confident. A man with a mustache makes a bold statement about rugged individualism.

And if you don’t like it—frankly, my dear, he doesn’t give a damn.

What do you think about mustaches? Do you have a favorite? Share some mustache love and pics in the comments.


They’ll have to outrun her past, his enemies and the law for a love 
that’s dangerously real. #RidingDirty

Psychologist Mia Richards wants revenge. Her new client, tattooed Cole "Shank" Shepherd, provides the perfect means. She just has to manipulate the felon-turned-informant into eliminating her husband's killers—members of Cole's rival motorcycle club. The first step, seducing Cole, is simple. As for walking away before she falls hard—it's already too late…

Dirty Eleven practically raised Cole, and he plans to double-cross the cops rather than sell them out. But smart, sexy Mia is an irresistible distraction. While she's evaluating his mind, all he can think about is her body…until he discovers her true intentions. Walking a fine line between desire and betrayal, they'll have to outrun her past, his enemies and the law for a love that's dangerously real.
