I have never paid more then $150 plus tax for any single item of clothing, shoe, purse or accessory. I've paid about that amount for tall leather boots and designer jeans. Lucky for me I haven't wanted anything more expensive then that and Lucky for me anything that I own that is more expensive then that was purchased by Le husband.
I have never run a half or a full marathon. Nor will I ever. I know they are all the rage but I just don't have the knees for it. Nor the desire. Running that long and that far sounds like torture. I can run a 5k with no training but anything more then that which would require training would not be possible for me. My body just couldn't take it. I will run on a treadmill. And I have done runs around my neighborhood here and there but any more then that is not happening.
I have never been skiing, spent more then 5 minutes in the snow or driven a car in it for that matter. I'm a So Cal girl born and raised. I get cold when it's in the 60's and when it's in the 50's I think I'm going to get frostbite. Mj keeps telling me that somehow it wouldn't be as cold as I think I would be in the snow but I absolutely do not believe him.
I have never been black out falling down drunk. I've been falling out of chair drunk but never to the point where I blacked out or lost consciousness.

I've never had a cavity. I brush my teeth twice a day and I'm really bad about flossing. And I love candy. They say it's good enamel. I do really need to start flossing because I know I can't skate by on my good enamel forever.
I have never eaten a banana. I just don't like 'em. I don't even like the smell...or it's slimy mushy texture. I'm not very adventurous when it comes to food so it's just one of many things on my list of things I don't like to eat. Pineapples used to be on that list too but I started eating them within the last few years.
I have never loved a sport more then I love gymnastics. There is just something so amazing about what these athletes can do. I just don't think it's normal that a person can do a full twisting back tuck on a 4 inch wide beam. It defies the laws of gravity and it's down right scary! It's not normal...and yet they make it look so effortless. As a former gymnast I know how hard it is and I was no where near Elite. To know me is to know that I love gymnastics and I could go on and on about how inspiring gymnasts are to me but I'll stop. I will take this moment mention all the Fierce Five (except Aly Raisman who did Dancing With the Stars) from London are back in the gym. Kyla Ross and McKayla Maroney (of not impressed and vaulting fame) were the only two that competed in USA Nationals a few weeks ago but they all seem more serious then anybody expected them to be about continuing onto Rio. World Championships are coming up. Oh, and Gabby Douglas switched gyms. She left Chow's in Iowa with no explanation and moved to LA. Story about it here.
Watch this video. It gave me the chills!
