Never have I ever…

When I saw that one of my favorite bloggers, Megan from Semi-Charmed Kind of Lifewas participating in a monthly link-up hosted by Kiki titled “Never Have I Ever,” I just knew I had to play along. How fun is this topic?!  And…it fits in perfectly with Amanda at Running with Spoons for her “Thursdays are for…Thinking Out Loud” series.


// broken a bone.  My nickname may be Grace…and I’ve had plenty of bruises and sprains…and I’ve been hospitalized for things like tonsils and ear tubes…but no broken bones.

// learned to drive a stick shift.  I may have grown up in the hills of West Virginia…but I find the whole two feet on a pedal thing so very complicated…

// had a pumpkin spice latte.  I’m not a huge pumpkin-flavored fan, so I’ve just never had the urge to try one.

// liked olives.  I pride myself on at least trying anything once, but honestly, I find olives to be nasty.

// taken a yoga class.  I know, I know.  How can I love all things fitness and never try yoga?  I don’t know.  I want to, but I haven’t.

// figured out poker.  My mom’s side of the family loves to play poker (with pennies/nickels/dimes/quarters) – and can pick-up any game once introduced to it.  I, on the other hand, need the instructions repeated to me…every 5 minutes.  I’m not very good at a “poker face” because I’m too honest!!!  I’m not good at math in my head…or at remembering what cards have already been played.  And I literally suck at guessing what cards my partner holds when we play in pairs.  Just saying…if we ever get a chance to play together…you’ve been warned!

// been an extrovert.  I’m very sociable and friendly and like to try new things…but I will not be the first one to put my hand up or stand up or speak up or start a revolution.

// been able to do a split.  I’m just not that flexible.

// told a ghost story (or stayed the night in a haunted house!)  Although I like to think of myself as a creative person…I was just never one to tell stories, yet alone believable scary stories!

  1. It’s crazy that you’re the second person on this linkup to put the olive thing! I thought that one was going to be unique, but I guess not. Glad I’m not alone in that 🙂 I’ve never had a PSL either. I don’t get the hype. I do know how to drive a stick shift, but I’m sure i’ve forgotten by now it’s been so long. We used to have this sweet Jeep that I learned on.

  2. I’ve never taken a yoga class either! And olives may just be one of the nastiest foods I can think of, so I’m with you on that one. I do know how to drive a stick shift, though… and I’ve broken a bone, unfortunately. Never been to Australia… which is the first thing that popped into my head. I really want to go, though!

    • I would LOVE to experience Australia too!!! My first thought was, “I’ve never been the Great Wall of China!” But that’s on my life’s bucket list…so I thought I’d try to find a few more personal tid-bits! I’m trying to be more “authentic” and “open” – much like you are on your blog! 🙂 (that’s a compliment, by the way!) Glad to finally link-up with you again…it’s been too long!!! xoxo.

  3. What a great list! As for olives, I’ve never really understood why people like them. I’m not opposed to them but I could never get myself to put them on something willingly or eat them plain! 🙂 And I’m also with you on PSLs. I like a few things that are pumpkin-y but I don’t really like hot beverages (let alone coffee) so I don’t see myself changing on that anytime soon! 🙂

    Thanks for linking up with us!
