Happy Friday the 13th everyone!  

My soon-to-be-step-brother's birthday is today.  He and his brother were both born on Friday the 13th - one in April, the other in August. Happy Birthday Bryan (he just had baby #2 the other day too)!

I normally don't have any bad luck - usually just the opposite.  I hope today follows suit with that.  I noticed when I started writing this post that I left my wedding ring at home.  I always take it off when I take a shower, and this morning I left it in the bathroom.  I feel naked without it - I'm constantly reaching over and touching it throughout the day.  

A //     This great weather cracked numbers on a bright yellow wall.
B //     A great design poster series by Foreign Policy Design called 13 wives.
C //    This charm set
D //     An adorable Custom Lucky Number Paper Ring from Steph1000r's Etsy shop


Also, today's Fun Facts - all Friday the 13th related, of course: 

1 // According to folklorists, there is no written evidence for a "Friday the 13th" superstition before the 19th century.

2 // The fear of Friday the 13th has been called friggatriskaidekaphobia, or paraskevidekatriaphobia.

3 // The longest period that can occur without a Friday the 13th is fourteen months.

4 // The 13th day of the month is slightly more likely to be a Friday than any other day of the week.

5 // The Dutch Centre for Insurance Statistics (CVS) on June 12, 2008, stated that "fewer accidents and reports of fire and theft occur when the 13th of the month falls on a Friday than on other Fridays, because people are preventatively more careful or just stay home.


What about you guys?  Do you believe Friday the 13th to be unlucky?  

Thanks for visiting ya'll. Have a great weekend!
