{October 22, 2011}   Things I have Never Done

I recently came across my fellow blogger Eliz’s post on things she had never done and took an interest in following suit with my own post. She got the prompt from Mama Kat, who I have heard about a lot but I have to admit, I had never been to her blog myself to check it out. I did finally zip over there and she has a very nice blog going with lots of prompts. Hmm…Shall I add yet another person to the huge list of people I follow? Maybe…it could be beneficial with the amount of prompts she throws out…or so I have heard.

But without further ado, here is MY list of things I have never done and if you would like to do your own, feel free, no one is stopping you! If you have done anything on my list, I would love to hear about that, as well, too! 🙂

I’m twenty eight years old.

And I’ve never:

1. Ran in a marathon

2.Made a snowman with a carrot nose and top hat

3.Skinny dipped in a swimming pool

There you have it, 28 totally random things I have never done…some of these things I have no desire to do and probably will NEVER do….and some I actually would consider as part of a Bucket List! I wonder if you could guess which things are which? Maybe I will tell you at a later date?
