teen resale shop

I had never been to any of the new "teen" resale shops.

There are a few in our area dedicated to the teens selling only name brand items. I took my daughter in yesterday to resell a few items and to look for some capri pants. I have to say that I was not impressed. It is still just a resale shop. One of them was pretty sparse and was easy to maneuver through. The other was jam packed and hard to look through the clothes, all which were pretty well worn. The only thing I did like was that my daughter was able to make a little cash selling some items!

That I'd like to see.

Jam Session

I've never been to a Jam Session.

My uncle and cousin have a room in their house dedicated to their musical instruments and all the paraphernalia that goes along with them. I don't even know what all they have. I know there are drums and guitars and speakers and other Emg items. I've never been to one of their jam sessions but I bet they can get loud!

420 day observation

I've never been to a 4/20 day observation.

I had not ever even heard that term until today, 4/20. This is a code or signal for a day to "celebrate" marijuana and its use. Observations are held, or at least referenced to, today. For example, Willie Nelson was supposedly unveiling a statue of himself, at 4:20. And the biggest "celebration" takes place at the University of Colorado at Boulder, which has gained the reputation for being the biggest party school in the nation! Thankfully, "The university spokesman Bronson Hilliard told the Associated Press, "We don't consider this a protest. We consider this people smoking pot in the sunshine," adding, "This is a gathering of people engaging in an illegal activity."" ( Hopefully, more (square) people and parents will come to recognize this code and take action to stand against it....

testosterone supplement

I've never been to get a testosterone supplement.

I would have no interest in doing so. But I would bet that there are many males who would! I know my son has been trying to bulk up over the last year, and has successfully gained 23 pounds, mostly all muscle. He works out and drinks protein shakes. I don't know if he has ever used a testosterone supplement. I would hope that if he does, he would take the time to read the animal test reviews, as well as any other testosterone supplement he might be willing to try.

World's Largest Dodgeball Game

I've never been to the World's Largest Dodgeball Game.

Which took place in February at the University of Alberta. Nearly 5000 people flung dodgeballs for an hour to gain the current title. Now if the current champs want to take on the previous winners from the University of California in Irvine....

That I'd like to see.

The Voice

I've never been to The Voice.

My daughter has wanted to watch this newer singing show each week, when we are home. As for me, I am so musically challenged that I would not even be a good audience member! I don't have a good ear for tones, I can't carry a tune, I can't even decide between ashdown, bose, canton or yamaha speakers!! But I am sure my daughter would enjoy being in the audience of the Voice, hearing the singers up close and personal. In fact, I thought of her when I saw a clip the other day of a singer and his pianist. That would be pretty cool if one day my daughter was an accompanist on just such a show!

family triathlon challenge

I've never been to compete in a family triathlon challenge.

But a challenge has been issued by the Ironmen in our family-my husband, his aunt and her cousin-to all of lowly wannabees! We will participate in a relay triathlon this Labor Day. Each participant will do one leg of the triathlon. Now if we can assemble a team to beat those Ironmen....

patio furniture

I've never been to buy patio furniture.

Our neighbors are redoing their backyard-decking, barbecue area, etc. So I know that they will be looking for patio furniture soon. I noticed the other day that outdoor furniture is becoming more fashionable and seemingly more comfortable than I've seen in the past. I know our neighbors will be enjoying their new backyard and new outdoor furniture soon!

Best Pizza Spots

I've never been to any of the supposed ten best pizza spots in the US.

If I ever make it back to Boston, I'd like to give Santarpio's a try. And in L.A. I would frequent Pizzeria Mozza the San Francisco to Flour+Water with it's Italian imported wood burning oven. From Brooklyn to Philadelphia to Chicago to Portland, all the photos of the nation's best pizzas are making my mouth water. That is the kind of nation wide trip I'd love! Then I could decide which I think has the best pizza spot in the nation!

I've never been to buy an eReader.

They are becoming more and more common, even with those who love books. It seems they are lightweight and easy to carry when traveling. I hear that now many are easier to read in any light and can give the "feel" of paper-like reading. I've heard of the Kindle and today I found some kobo reviews. It seems like eReaders are providing an even better reading experience.

pro day

I've never been to a potential pro football player's pro day.

The little girl I baby sit has an uncle who plays football. He just graduated from Tulane and had his pro day last month. He has since gotten calls from both the Houston Texans and the New Orleans Saints. I wonder if we will be seeing him play for a pro team!!

custom design coins

I've never been to custom design coins.

Each summer our church is looking for awards for all the children who complete the summer Bible reading challenge. We usually give out medals for their prizes. I noticed a site where you can get custom design coins. It looks like they have some ready made you can purchase in bulk or you can design custom challenge coins. Either way I think they are pretty cool and I bet the kids would like some of the cool designs!
