Let's Do a Giveaway!


So I got a new phone. Actually it's the first cell phone that I've ever owned that's just been mine. I'm 30 years old & I finally have my own cell phone. I know it's not the fanciest phone in the world, but I think it's pretty amazing & I'm super stoked on it. I'm love that it has a keyboard because I can be a texting machine now. Awesome.

It's a sad thing when junior high kids have cell phone but you don't. When the kids that babysit your kids have their own phone, but you don't. So I'm feeling like pretty hot stuff now. Just thought I'd share.

Also, got me thinking about some other things that I have never done in the 30 years that I've lived. Let me share a few with you.

I've never been tanning.
I've never left the country.
I've never done karaoke.
I've never sewn a zipper. (About time I figured that one out.)


In the comments section, share with me something that you've never done. I'll choose one winner on Monday & send them out a La La Love You Poster in the color of their choice. Thanks & have fun!!

i can't think of one stinking thing! i never enter giveaways? and i never ever win. i wish i could say i've never been tanning, although i have sworn to give it up and haven't been in over a year. and i've never sewn a zipper, but i've never sewn a lot of things.

Kim B said...

Wow I don't feel so alone anymore in my recent cell phone acquisition! I just got my first ever cell phone about a year ago at 26 and it's a cheap $30 phone from Target :)

I've never been tanning either.
I've never text messaged.
I've never had liver (something I'm very grateful to say)!

pdisandro said...

I've never been t-peeing before. Such a dull childhood... :-)

Welcome to Lulu's life. said...

I have never been married, but it's happening next year. I have never been to Europe or gone Sky diving. I have never gone to a scary movie alone.

stephanie said...

Sandy a la Mode said...

I have never seen or read Harry Potter. I have never been to Australia. And I would totally LOVE one of these cute posters! Thanks for the opportunity to win it!

undonegirl said...

I've never tweeted...never even been to their site.

Stacy said...

i've never broken a bone - and really hope i never ever do! (i didn't get a cell phone until i was a sophmore in college and even then it was because my dad was sick of not being able to get a hold of me so he gave me one for christmas. i still forget to check it during the day and lose it all the time).

Kelsey Kim said...

I've never done lots of things. I've never worn parachute pants. I've never punched someone in the face(even though I have wanted to), never had a vaginal birth(and I have two kids). Have never been to the hospital other than to have those two kids. Have never payed for a babysitter(aren't Grandma's awesome?!!)
I've never had a yeast infection, or mastitis(and I have nursed my two children collectively for almost 4 years). Well, maybe I should stop, I don't want to to get too personal. ;)

I have also never been tanning.

I've never permed my hair. (do people still do that?)

I've never been to a rock concert.

I've never broken a bone or had any type of surgery.

I've never won such an awesome giveaway.

I've never hula hooped naked. Can you believe it?

chanel said...

i have never gone skinny-dipping, something I found out I was very alone with... at an ENRICHMENT meeting! yikes, crazy naked mormons!
wait that sounds like they were skinny dipping AT Enrichment, although that would make for a GREAT blog post, we were just playing a game about what you've never done. they managed to keep their clothes on the whole time. ;)

Susie said...

I've never been skinny dipping.

Jenny said...

I've never had a margherita (yuck)
I've never been scuba diving (always have wanted to)
I've never tweeted either.
I've never once wished that I could run away.

Kristen said...

I've never seen Star Wars (any episode/prequel/sequel/I don't even know the special Star Wars language for this).

I've also never texted. My Mom texts. The 80 year old couple in my Bible Study text. I think my overall cell phone hatred has just squashed the rest of that stuff for me. Do I sound bitter? I need a La La Love You poster!

Annie said...

I've never eaten a Snickers bar.

Melissa said...

I've never owned a brand-spankin'-new car. (But someday I'd like to.) I've also never owned a La La Love You poster. (I'd like to have that, too!)

J. said...

I've never been to China. I want to accomplish that this year in July, we'll see! I <3 your posters too!! Never owned one either.

Blueberry Park said...

I've never visited your blog before! But sure glad I found you via a mutual tweet to us from Junecraft...especially on giveaway day ;-)

ollie said...

I have never had my nails done. Not that funny unless you consider that I used to work at a hair salon and had the services right at my finger tips (lame pun intended). At that point in my life I had also never tanned (though I cleaned the tanning beds) and never dyed my hair. I really know how to squander an opportunity when it presents itself.

Melanie said...

i've never been tanning, either. i have also never jumped off a diving board. i've jumped from the side of a pool, maybe once. i have never rode a horse, and i'm from texas. i've also never been ice skating. :)

Olivia said...

I've never had a pedicure,
I've never eaten sushi,
I've never been sailing on a boat,
and I've never visited Disney Land!

Krista said...

Annie, you've never eaten a Snickers? You must be way skinnier than me, because I've eaten hundreds. I looooove them.

I've never scuba dived. I've snorkeled, surfed, and skydived, but I've always been too chicken to go down deep in the ocean. Someday I hope to change that.

Amber Liddle said...

I've never been to the Southern Hemisphere. I think it would be cool to have summer in February!

Sandra said...

I was never writing a comment soo late at night ( or better in the morning...it`s 1 o`clock here!)

Jessi said...

i've never loved myself enough. not even la la loved myself enough!

Holly C. said...

beeglorious said...

...hmmm... I've never read or seen any Harry Potter or Twilight books/movies. I've also never been skiing or snowboarding and considering I live in Cali that's kinda a big deal since everyone I know has done one or the other...

I've texted maybe 3 times and that's it! I'm on my parents' phone plan and they turned the texting feature off. So everyone tells me I need to fix my phone so I can receive texts even though my phone isn't actually broken. :) Enjoy your pretty new cell phone!
I hope I win your giveaway!

Katie said...

Amy said...

I love all these comments! The Star Wars one makes me sad, and the blow dryer one makes me jealous! My hair is crazy.

I am so glad you have your own phone now! You'll have to email me your number.

I have never been to Europe...and I really am dying to go. Also, I have never seen a tropical beach where the water is clear and looks turqoise.

PS You so could sew a zipper.

Jessie said...

i've never learned to play an instrument, had a boy (3 girls, though), or had a martini (i've always wondered what the big deal was with those)

Oh candace... this post made me laugh!

Ive never been skiing or snowboarding.

April: Modern-Mama said...

Something I've never done... hmm... I've never won a blog giveaway ;o) In all honesty though, I was reading most of these comments, and it made me feel pretty good. At only 26 years old I really have been blessed with many experiences. Oh but to borrow a few from other commenters, I've also never broken a bone or sewn a zipper.

I just sewed my first zipper a few backs! It's really not as scary as it seems!

I've only left the country once for a few short hours to go to Canada (does that even count).

I've never been to NYC and I really want to go!

I've never had stable employment (this is so awful). Seriously, the longest I've kept a "real job" is 1 1/2 years. Thank goodness for Etsy!

I've never been to a salon to get a haircut or get my nails done and I'm almost 30!

Jessica said...

I've never been out of the country!

Hmmm......I've never seen "gremlins" before

pamela said...

I've never seen Star Wars... any of them!

Jacqueline said...

I never received my interior design diploma! The school was bought out and in order to receive it they want me to re-enroll and take 6 more classes. I refused. I still have my transcript, but it doesn't matter the credits are not accepted anywhere else. Silly!

I'm back in school to earn another degree... YAY! I think nutrition will be a better fit anyway :)

On a side note, I've never given birth and that is something I really, really want to do.

deebanana said...

I have never hula hooped naked either...oh wait..does the Wii count? ;)
