Friend Makin' Monday: Have You Ever?

Happy Monday Everyone! On Monday Kenlie over at All the Weigh hosts Friend Makin' Monday. How does it work? She posts questions on her blog. You answer them on your own blog, and then post a link at on All the Weigh. So, here are my answers. If you want to participate answer these questions on your own blog, and post the link in the comments of Kenlie's blog.

Have You Ever?

1. Jumped out of an airplane?  No, that sounds terrifying.
2. Lived alone?  Yes, I do now.
3. Met a celebrity? Yes, most recently Tom Brokaw. Awesome!
4. Said something to someone that you immediately regret saying? Yes. Is there anyone who hasn't? I usually do a good job of thinking before I speak, but I do put my foot in my mouth much more often than I would like.
5. Had a manicure/pedicure? Yes, but not for several years. I've decided to reward myself when I reach my weight goal by getting a manicure and pedicure.
6.  Gotten a hickey?  Nope.
7. Owned a pet that was not a dog or a cat?  Yes. As a kid my sister and I had a few pet hamsters, rats, and fish.
8. Been outside of your home country?  Yes! I love to travel! I've traveled to Europe a few times, to Korea, Costa Rica, Mexico, and Canada (does that count?). I'd love to go to Egypt and Greece.
9. Kissed your best friend? Nope.
10. Eaten food that fell on the floor?  Yes. I'm a firm believer in the 5 second rule. But, I do try to keep my floors clean, so it's OK (right?).
11. Met someone online? No.
12. Been on TV? Yes. I think my first TV appearance was on the Ramblin' Rod show. Does anyone remember that? It was super cool!
13. Had braces? Yep. For four years from age 12 to 16.
14. Gone skinny dipping? Nope.
15. Been to the opera? Yes. I love Carmen.
16. Been caught making out by a policeman?  Nope.
17. Sung in public? No, and I think that's best for everyone. Singing is definitely not my strength.
18. Handed out candy on Halloween? Of course. I love to see all the kiddos dressed up.
19. Been snowed in? Yes.
20. Fallen in front of other people? Yes, I'm a klutz. It happens too frequently to even mention a specific incident. The worst are probably a couple on stage falls when I used to be a ballet dancer. Embarrassing!
21. Cheated on a test? No.
22. Regretted saying “I love you” to someone? No. I don't say it without really meaning it.
23. Finished a meal in a restaurant and realized that you didn’t have your wallet? No, that sounds super embarrassing!
24. Shot a gun? No, but a friend of mine keeps trying to take me to the shooting range. Maybe it's time I take him up on his offer. It might be kind of fun.
25. Heard a song that was written for (or about) you? No.


  1. stopping by from FMM
    I love when we get to know people :)

  2. So fun! I love reading these survey type posts... I feel like I know more about you. :)

    I'm with you on never jumping out of a plane. Yikes!

  3. Hi! From FMM!
    Love reading everyones answers to the FMM! Great way to find new blogging friends!

  4. Stopping by from FMM- I think it's so fun to see everyone's answers on these Mondays.

  5. Give shooting a chance! It is pretty fun, if I say so myself. Just make sure they aren't giving you some gun with major kickback (I mean, unless you're pretty strong). Talk about embarrassing!

  6. You've been to some really cool places! And I'm with you on the 5 second rule at home. And if it exceeds 5 seconds, I have a dog who will happily clean up what I drop!

    Stopping in from FMM - hi!

  7. Jumping out of an airplane terrifies me.
    I fall all the time and I would like to say I've never had a hickey, but i survived all the way to 26 and then kissed a stupid groomsman in a wedding and that was what I got in return. yikes!
