Never Have I Ever

I stole this idea from Teh Megan.

(X) Shot a gun 

() Gone on a blind date 
I mean I've gone on Tinder, Plenty of Fish, & Match dates...but I've never been set up by anyone.

(X) Skipped school
In high school when you turned 18 you could sign yourself out/call yourself in.  My senior year I didn't want to go on a field trip for my MN History class & since the rest of the class was going, my friend & I decided to just ditch school & go shopping instead.

() Watched someone die
No thank God. 

() Been to Canada
One would think that since I grew up 3.5-4 hours south of Canada, & have been within 1.5-2 hours of it many times the answer to this would be yes.  However, somehow I've just never gone the extra distance.

() Been to Hawaii 
One day.

() Been to Cuba

(X) Been to Europe
It's been far too long (a decade) but yes.  I've been to Germany, Austria, Switzerland, & Lichtenstein 

() Been to South America
I would like to, but no.

(X) Been to Las Vegas
Again, it's been too long (6 years) but yes.

() Been to Central America
I want to see the world...

() Been to Asia
One day. 

() Been to Africa

(X) Been to Florida

Panama City/Panama City Beach

() Been to Mexico
Much like Minnesota & Canada, one would think that living 4.5-5 hours from there for 3 years, & having been less than an hour-2 hours away more than once, I would have just committed & gone the whole way.  Nope

() Been to the Pacific Realm

Not yet

() Been to the Middle East


() Seen the Grand Canyon in person

For someone who loves to travel I sure haven't been around much...

() Flown in a helicopter

I've been in a 2 person plane.  Does that count??

() Served on a jury
I was close.  I had to sit all day through selection but luckily didn't get picked.

(X) Been lost
More than once.

(X) Traveled to the opposite side of the country
I moved from MN to TX which is the complete opposite side North/South wise.  I've been to 28/29 states.  I haven't been to the PNW, New England, HI, AK, or the SW.

() Visited Washington, DC

No but I need to.

(X) Swam in the ocean

Atlantic.  In South Carolina

(X) Cried yourself to sleep

(X) Played cops and robbers

(X) Played cowboys and Indians 

() Recently colored with crayons
I recently colored with colored pencils... does that count? 

(X) Sang karaoke
I think I've only done it a few times for real but anytime in my car alone it's my own version of carpool karaoke. 

() Sang a solo or duet in church
I was never in a church choir period.

(X) Paid for a meal with coins only
I'm sure I have 

(X) Made prank phone calls
That was what we did for entertainment in elementary/middle school.

(X) Laughed until some beverage came out of your nose
Only once & it hurt like hell

(X) Caught a snowflake on your tongue
Every winter of my childhood.

() Had children 

(X) Had a pet
We always had a dog growing up.  We've also had fish, cats, chickens, horses.  But always a dog. 

(X) Been skinny-dipping

Only once.  A couple of summers ago.  My friend & I had never gone so we drove out to a lake one night just to do it.

(X) Been fishing
I haven't been in way too long but I went fairly frequently growing up.

(X) Been boating
See above

() Been downhill skiing
I grew up in the land of snow & yet no, I've never been.  I honestly have no desire.  I half ass tried snowboarding once & if I lived in a winter climate still I'd still like to learn to snowboard.  But I don't.

() Been water skiing
I grew up in the land of 10,000 lakes...but no.  Again, I never really had the desire to do so.

(X) Been camping in a trailer/RV
All the time growing up.

(X) Been camping in a tent
Every summer growing up & every year at WeFest.

() Driven a motorcycle
I've been on one more than once.  I still REALLY want my license.  I just never go do it.  I need to just start doing things instead of wanting to do them.

() Been bungee-jumping

I kinda want to do this, but I kinda don't.  Megan said it seems like less of a good idea the older she gets but I am more attracted to the idea the older I get.

(X) Gone to a drive-in movie
Only twice.  I want to go to more.

(X) Done something that could have killed you
More than once.

() Done something that you will regret for the rest of your life
No.  I mean we all have those what if moments but I don't have any regrets. 

() Rode an elephant

() Rode a camel

(X) Eaten just cookies or cake or ice cream for dinner
I also used to eat M&Ms & Mountain Dew for breakfast sometimes.

() Been on TV

() Stolen any traffic signs 
No, but growing up my brother would somehow always have to go to the bathroom really bad at about the exact same point in our hour drive between home & the mall.  So we would always pull over on this rural road so he could pee.  So many times I wanted to steal that sign for him & give it to him for his high school graduation.

(X) Been in a car accident
Nothing serious but yes.

() Been in the hospital in past 24 months

(X) Donated blood
A few times.  I need to do it more often.

(X) Gotten a speeding ticket in the past 12 months
It's been 8 months since my last ticket.  If I somehow make it to October that will be the first time since 2011 that I'll have gone a full year without some kind of ticket.

(X) Gotten a piercing
My belly button & ears.

(X) Gotten a Tattoo
I have 6: left wrist, right foot, left collarbone, left hip, right shoulder blade, right rib cage

(X) Driven a manual transmission vehicle

I've tried but I haven't been successful with it for more than a mile or 2

() Ever owned your dream car

I've owned a Plymouth Breeze, Chevy Impala, & Ford Fusion.  None of those are cars that I ever really wanted or was like "Must. Have. That!"  My dream vehicle is a Ford F150.  2010-2013.  Bright blue.  Extended Cab.

() Been Married 

() Been divorced 

(X) Fell in love  

(X) Fell out of love 

(X) Paid for a strangers meal 

() Driven over 100mph
It's possible.  And part of me wants to say yes.  But we'll stick with no.  I know I've been in the car with people who have.

() Been scuba diving or snorkeling

() Written a published book/story/poetry 

() Eaten snails


  1. I love this. I too have never been on a blind date. To be honest, I'm not sure I would want to. haha And I have never sung Karaoke, I'm a terrible singer and would never do it. In elementary school, the choir teacher told me I couldn't carry a tune at all and could never ever sing. It has stayed with me all these years. Even when I was a nanny, I wouldn't sing the baby to sleep.

  2. Haha this is so fun! I had no idea you had 6 tattoos! Crazy! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  3. This was so fun to learn more about you! I didn't know you had six tattoos! I really want to go to Panama City someday. It looks stunning.

  4. So much FUN!!!!!!! I laughed and related to many of these. I admit I did steal a blinking traffic sign in high school and We put it in a guy's yard. It was blinking in the back seat the whole way there, lol
