February 1965 is the only month in recorded history not to have a full moon
The first couple to be seen in bed together on tv were Fred & Wilma Flinstone.
Scientists suggest that most people will fall in love approximately seven times before marriage.
“Love” in the sense of “no score” in tennis dates to 1792 and means “playing for love” or, in other words, playing for nothing. Other scholars claim that "love" as a tennis score is a corruption of the French word for egg, "L'oeuf," because of the egg's resemblance to a zero.
Each king in a deck of playing cards represents a great king from history: Spades - King David, Hearts - Charlemagne, Clubs - Alexander the Great, Diamonds - Julius Caesar
It was the accepted practice in Babylon 4,000 years ago that for a month after the wedding, the bride's father would supply his son-in- law with all the mead he could drink. Mead is a honey beer and because their calendar was lunar based, this period was called the honey month we know today as the honeymoon.
The term “love” is from the Sanskrit lubhyati, meaning “desire.”
Since ancient Greece, the apple has been a symbol of love. The Celts believed that the apple represented love because it lasted so long after being picked.
Lacey joined SK in April of 2009 and has just begun hosting Trying To Conceive #1. Her nickname, lacenicole17, is basically just her name. Her first name is Lacey, her middle name is Nicole - lacenicole. The '17' is the day she married her DH! She's been with her DH, Derek, for 6 1/2 years. In July, it will be 7. They've been married since August 17, 2007, so it will be 4 years this year! They knew each other for a few years, but never really talked to each other. One night, she was just searching online and was on instant messenger. We started talking and the rest is history! A lot of the time, they just spend time together at home. They enjoy having their friends over and having game night. During the Spring/Summer they like to go mini golfing and do things outside. They also enjoy going to her brother's varsity basketball games. That occupies most of their Winter months!
Lacey & Derek have been actively TTC for almost 2 years. When they first went to the RE, she informed us that it has been closer to 6 years because they weren't preventing anything. When she thinks about it that way, it's a really long time! She would be happy with 2 or 3 kids however, they will be happy with whatever we are given at this point.
When Lacey & Derek go away together, she almost always has to be the one to drive. She feels like I have to be in control while driving. Her DH will drive once in a while, but the majority of the time she's the one driving. A lot of her friends think it's weird that she drives everywhere and her DH doesn't!
On Valentine's Day, they usually just stay home and have dinner and watch a movie. Sometimes, they will go out to dinner somewhere. She's not quite sure what they will be doing this year.
Lacey we hope a new little miracle will soon be on the way for you!
Briana (Bree08) joined SK 2 1/2 years ago. Her nickname is her irl nickname "Bree" and 08 is the year she joined SK. She has been with her DH for 8 1/2 years now! They met the first time when she was maybe 8 or 9, his grandma lived across the street from her. One day he came over to her front porch where her Barbies were and tore off all there heads because she wouldn't play Barbies with his cousin. They never talked after that! Ten years later she got a job at a nursing home and he was her supervisor. They have been together every day since! They love walking their dogs together and going to dinner with friends. Their favorite is just relaxing at home with the candles lit and a good movie.
Briana and her DH have been TTC their first for 3 1/2 years now... much too long... she is optimistic that their TTC journey will end soon. She will be happy with as many children as God wants to give her, but would really like 1-3 children.
Briana has a twin sister. People say they are just sisters born on the same day. For Valentines Day normally, they just go to dinner and spend the night with each other. The normally don't make a big deal out of those holidays.
Briana we know that your TTC journey will soon result in a little one in your arms.
