Love Story: Erika and Justin

Love story from Erika and Justin

I knew I was in love the minute I met my husband, Justin. It was the first day of High School, and he had just walked into my math class. I can still remember what he was wearing - Lucky jeans, K-Swiss shoes, a navy blue shirt, and he had cute spiky hair (gotta love 1999!). Every girl in the sophomore class was drooling over this kid who was the Class President. He was nice to everyone and I was totally smitten.

I asked him to Sweethearts Ball right after I turned...

The "Sock" Date

We always love hearing about the dates the MEN come up with!  One of our readers, Mindy, shared one in which her husband used one of her favorite things and turned it into a very creative date.  Here she is:

Just wanted to share a fun date my husband took me on...he thought it up all by himself!

I LOVE funky socks.  I've got all colors, styles, lengths, fabrics and more.  On Thursday, my husband Mike invited me to a date that would 'Knock My Socks Off.'...

Sassy Suggestion: Inner Child Date

A suggestion from one of our readers: The Inner Child Date!

When Robyn emailed us to let us know about her fantastic date, I told her that she could be our *honorary* 13th Diva!  Super creative with lots of fun details and so inexpensive that anybody could do this one!  :)  She used one of the diva's date as her inspiration, but changed it to make it her own.  Without further ado - here's Robyn:

After reading this entry, I decided to do one of my own.  I loved the idea of being a kid again, but I twisted this up...

The Penny Jar

The Penny Jar intimacy idea for newlywed couples.

One of our readers, Mindi, sent in a super cute idea that we thought we should pass along!  I will let her take over:

"I had a friend tell me something fun they did and I adapted it a little to be fun for me and my husband. It's a penny jar.  Every time you "have-a-little-fun-in-the-bedroom", you put a penny in your jar.  We started it with the new year and our goal is to top the number next year."

"There's all kinds of variations, though.  If...

One of our readers, Alicia, recently sent us this email:

My name is Alicia Voigts.  I ran across your blog link on LDS Chatter and I am in LOVE.  Such a GREAT blog... I wanted to share an idea that 3 of my girlfriends did with all 3 of our husbands.  We called it the "Dessert-Off" ...kinda like a "Bake-Off"... I guess you could say.  We girls sat around and chatted while the men went to the store to buy the items.

When they returned, they each...

Love Story: Cami and Joseph

Cami and Joseph, a love story.

Now, how Joseph and I met... Hmmm... depends on what story we want to tell. I'll tell both! We actually first met when my girls and I decided to take a girls trip to AZ for Valentine's weekend. None of us had significant others and we wanted to go to WARM weather! While there, we attended an Institute dance. We walked in and a country song was playing and we immediately RAN to the middle of the dance floor and started to do a line dance. We were soon surrounded by...
