    Survey: Have You Ever ____, Part 3

    A few months ago, we launched our first edition of the “Have you ever?” survey and followed up with a second installment in July. It seemed to go over well with you gals, so we thought we’d bring it back for another round!

    It’s a simple and fun setup that we encourage you to also play with your girlfriends during a slumber party or over lunch at school. It’s a great way to get to know little tidbits and facts about your friends that may have never come up before. In that same vein, it’s also an awesome conversation starter!

    Feel free to not only answer “yes” or “no” to the below questions, but to expand your answers on your favorites (or all of them!). So for the first question, if your answer is yes, tell us why you had your makeup done and what it was like. If no, let us know if you’d ever want to in the future!

    Copy the questions below and paste them (along with your answers) in a comment.

    Have you ever…

    1. …had your makeup professionally done?

    2. …dyed your hair?

    3. …been to a double feature movie (or just watched two or more movies back-to-back in a theater)?

    4. …been on a cruise?

    5. …been in the ER?

    6. …been to a music festival?

    7. …sung karaoke?

    8. …been on a trip with your youth group or church?

    9. …been ice skating outside?

    10. …ridden on a big Ferris wheel?

    10. 1. …had your makeup professionally done?

      2. …dyed your hair?
      Not all of it, but I have an ombre right now. I’ve dip-dyed the ends purple and blue before, too (not both at the same time––they were different years).

      3. …been to a double feature movie (or just watched two or more movies back-to-back in a theater)?
      Nope!

      10. …ridden on a big Ferris wheel?

    11. 1. …had your makeup professionally done?
      I’ve had the lady at the makeup counter match my foundation color before…

      2. …dyed your hair?
      I got highlights once because my mom talked me into it. They didn’t show up much (I had them put them in lightly because I wasn’t sure if I wanted them or not), and they didn’t look bad, but it felt really unnatural to me–not necessarily a bad thing, just not my thing.

      3. …been to a double feature movie (or just watched two or more movies back-to-back in a theater)?
      Nope, but I’ve had movie marathons at home multiple times!

      4. …been on a cruise?
      Yes, only one, and I only got to go because I was a performer on the cruise and I was doing mission work in Nassau with my performing group!

      5. …been in the ER?
      Yep! My older brother (now an accomplished college baseball player) accidently hit me in the head with a baseball bat when I backed up into him while he was practicing his swing before a game. I went into shock and was rushed to the ER. Two years later, I was hit in the head with a baseball bat again when one of my baseball teammates was carelessly swinging his bat in the dugout during a game, but all that one needed was a little ice from the concession stand, fortunately.

      6. …been to a music festival?
      Nope.

      7. …sung karaoke?
      Only in the safety of my home or a friend’s home.

      8. …been on a trip with your youth group or church?
      My school small group has gone river-rafting with my entire school twice, and we went to six-flags once, but other than that no.

      9. …been ice skating outside?
      Not outside.

      10. …ridden on a big Ferris wheel?
      Yep!

    12. 1 just once. She was a friend xD.
      2 only highlights, sadly…I wanna go all red, but ill have to wait til I’m 18, I guess. 16 at the earliest.
      3 nope. Never.
      4 just a little 2 hour Christmas one and eagle watching. Nothing spectacular.
      5 …I was an unlucky little child. Also foolish. It got to the point where the nurses knew who I was just when I entered.
      6. Nope.
      7 HA. For the sake of everyone else, no. No I have not xD God said to make a joyful noise for Him, but that does not make it beautiful.
      8 no…just recently started to get really involved with my church.
      9. NO. I hate ice skating. I did it once inside. Outside would probably be worse.
