Never Have I Ever

Morning! And happy Friday! It’s that time of the week again. Fun Fact Friday! This week, I decided to follow the inspiration I got from Michelle @ Crazy Running Legs and complete a “Never Have I Ever” list.

Never Have I Ever…

Eaten at a fancy-pants, five-course, deck-yourself-out restaurant.


Not that I would complain if I had the chance.

And on that same note…never have I ever eaten at a Whole Foods Hot Bar. It always looks really good, but if I’m just too cheap to eat at a high end restaurant, you better believe I’m too cheap for an expensive buffet.

Never have I ever…cheered on the Florida Gators. And that won’t be changing this weekend. Go Dawgs!!!

It Really IS The Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party!

Never have I ever…traveled west of the Mississippi River. I’ve traveled to more foreign countries than US States. #sadbuttrue

Never have I ever…driven a stick shift. I have a hard enough time driving an automatic. I don’t need to occupy my mind with anything else!

Never have I ever…cared for history. It bores me greatly. Although traveling and seeing artifacts/old architecture/etc doesn’t!

Never have I ever…felt fully recovered from my past eating struggles.

Never have I ever…signed up for Pinterest.

I’m holding out with all my might because the last thing I need is another online time suck. I feel my willpower waning more and more as each day passes.

Never have I ever…been able to do a split. Even during 14 years of gymnastics and cheerleading while growing up.

Never have I ever…wanted more than two kids.

I feel perfectly happy with my family just how it is. Here’s hoping God doesn’t have other plans. Winking smile 

Speaking of God…never have I ever understood how He can love so completely and so unconditionally. But, I’m glad He does because it has truly turned my life around.

Never have I ever…seen a Star Wars movie. Nor do I have the desire.

Never have I ever…worn underwear. Just checking if you’re still with me.

Never have I ever…broken a bone. Even after getting hit by a car.

Never have I ever…ridden on a motorcycle, despite the fact Peter owns one and used to ride quite frequently.

Never have I ever…gotten a speeding ticket. Surprising because I tend to have a lead foot. And now my next post will likely be all about me getting my first speeding ticket. I seem to have that kind of luck.

Never have I ever…been skinny dipping. Er, wait. Done that. Who me?

Oh. You’re still paying attention? Dang.

Never have I ever…done anything like bungee jumping, sky diving, or jumping off a cliff. I have always wanted to do something daring, but wonder if I will have the cajones to actually pull the trigger.

Never have I ever…taken Makenzie to Disney World.


And I CANNOT WAIT for that day to come. I think I will be more excited than her!

Never have I ever…liked strawberry ice cream.

Never have I ever…realized I have so many “never have I ever”s. Apparently, I need to get out more! And stop now before I bore you to tears. Happy Friday!

  • Hope you will play along! What’s a “Never Have I Ever…” of yours?

Seven! Seven! Seven!!!!!

A couple of my favorite bloggers – Chelsey and Heather – have a fun little Friday tradition. Fun Facts Friday! It gives a little glimpse into their lives and I always look forward to reading them. Then, Lindsay tagged me with a Blissful Blogger award which calls for sharing 7 fun facts.


I guess it was just meant to be that I play along with Fun Facts Friday. Winking smile

The number seven always makes me think of the scene from FRIENDS where Monica and Rachel teach Chandler about erogenous zones. Seven. Seven. Seven! Seven!!! SEVEN!!! Ha. Loves it!

You should never joke about having a black eye. Karma will get ya. On Wednesday, I somehow opened my car door right into my face and busted my lip.


Thankfully, it looks only slightly bruised now. And you’re welcome for sparing you the bloody, scabbed picture.

I still love the grilled sandwich combo of pepperjack cheese, tomato, and hummus.


It looks so delicious, but it never fails that I burn the bottom half.


Who can’t cook a grilled cheese sandwich? Apparently this girl.

I want to find these pumpkin bagels.

I can’t get them out of my head! I have searched high and low – Publix or Kroger, bread section or refrigerated section. They must live in some bagel vortex. It makes me sad. Do you know where I can get some?

I watched my first episode of Modern Family three weeks ago.


I love it. I want to find these illusive pumpkin bagels and sit on the couch and watch the entire first season straight through. That show is downright funny!

These came in the mail for me yesterday.

I’m all  kinds of excited. Peter told me he subscribed for me when he found a TWO DOLLAR subscription. How does he always find these crazy good deals?! Oh, yea. The Slickdeals website.

I’m working with Love Grown as a Love Blogger!


Have been for awhile…yet it somehow keeps slipping my mind to a) tell you and b) figure out how to get that picture into a widget on my sidebar. Ohhh, Peterrrrr!!!

  • What’s something that should be ridiculously easy to do, but you can never seem to get just right?
  • What’s a newly discovered love for you? Mine = Modern Family and Runner’s World. And front loaders.
