Chipping Away at my “Things I’ve Never Done” List…

Back in November, a Writers Workshop assignment prompted me to post a list of 22 things I had yet to do in life. I sit here, a little over 8 months later, and that list is officially down to 10 things left!!

1.  I’ve never gotten a tattoo.  {My two sisters & I are going to be doing this in the Spring, though!}

Take a peek at my official first ink {note “first” – loved the feeling so much that I am planning my next one!}

2. I’ve never been to Vegas.  Always wanted to, never had the chance.

3. I’ve never driven a convertible.  I’ve been in one, but never had the chance to drive one myself.

So. Much. Fun.

4. I’ve never seen a West Coast sunset.

5. I’ve never been a stand-up comedian.  This is seriously something I’d love to attempt to do. I love to make people laugh, and I have no problem telling jokes at my own expense.  This could be a total hoot!

6. I’ve never paid someone to clean my house.  Who wouldn’t dream about hiring a maid at some point in their life!?

Ok, so, I didn’t exactly have to pay for this but I did get a chance to review a local cleaning company for my other website. And, it’s safe to say that I’ll never hire a maid again.  I prefer to clean my own house thankyouverymuch.

7. I’ve never spent more than $100 on a pair of shoes.

Um….what to say.  Since November, I’ve accomplished this twice.  They were on sale AND I had an additional coupon each time but still…

8. I’ve never flown overseas. If I had my choice, I’d visit France.  Sipping tea with Princess Kate would be a close second.

9. I’ve never gotten so drunk that I didn’t remember the night. Maybe I can combine this with Vegas & make a mom version of “The Hangover.”!?

10. I’ve never seen Male Dancers. When my sister Kelly gets engaged, I am totally booking her some raunchy, hot male dancers purely for the sake of this list. You know, because I had to.

“Magic Mike” was enough for me.  More than enough.  Unless, of course, Channing Tatum brings it to Broadway then, yes, you bet your hot ass I’m buying front row seats to that.

11. I’ve never read “The Notebook.” I’ve seen the movie like a gazillion times but I’ve never actually sat down and read the book.  I’ve wanted to.

12. I’ve never gone skinny dipping.

13. I’ve never seen a horror flick.

14. I’ve never made out with Brad Pitt.

15. Or George Clooney.

16. Or Jude Law {major swoon!}

They all couldn’t even compete at this point…

17. I’ve never been to Ground Zero.

18. I’ve never ran a race.

Still haven’t actually ran one, but I did train for a half-marathon.  And we did run a celebratory “race” which ended with us drinking beer in a sleezy bar in Seaside Heights, NJ at 10:30am.

19. I’ve never published a book.

It’s totally under way – and mark my words….BEST SELLER.

20. I’ve never kissed passionately in the rain like in a scene out of a chick flick.

Um, yes please.

21. I’ve never invented something new.

22. I’ve never won the lottery

Or have I?
