Well most of my life was lived by the jump first ask questions later mentality that was in till the kids now if its not been planed i just cant be asked. Going on holiday and not going home for 3 years.
Getting married to my now hubby of 5 1/2 years 3 months after we first met.
Driving 9 hours to go to a concert coz someone had a spare ticket only to drive back the same night.

About 6 years ago, on July 3rd, my best friend and I decided to go visit a couple of guys that she knew about 5 hours away. We got there in the middle of the night so that we would be ready for the Independence Day party and rafting the next day.
We drove the 5 hours, and one of the guys that I met that weekend ended up being the man of my dreams :) And the future father of my children. Luckily for me, he was from my town and just visiting his brother for the holiday.
Best decision ever.

I went to Tijuana on a blind date... I'd just moved to California from North Dakota and my best friend/roomate set me up on a date with one of her co-workers. He picked me up and we were on our way to DAve & Buster's (restaurant/game center) and he joked about going to Tijuana, and I said sure, so we turned around and went! It was an alcohol/drug/sex crazed night I'm glad I had but would never do again!

The corruption :| I was ... taken advantage of ... and manhandled ... by a Montreal police officer. I can understand French, by putting bits together for the most part, I just can't speak it for the life of me... I was a lil drunk ... he stopped me and my friends, he let my friends go and they went to a second cup around the corner to wait for me and he called me all sorts of names and figured that because I was some English speaking non-quebecer that meant he was allowed to do with me as he wanted... I'm pretty sure the only reason he didn't full on rape me was because my friend called a bouncer friend of ours who showed up to ask him what was going on...
As for bald heads... when I was 12 I had hair down past my ass, it pissed me off one day so I took a pair of scissors to it... my mom was not impressed to say the least!

Montreal is great, it has such a vibe about it, there is so much to do and the food is AMAZING because you can find any cultural food around (i`m sure you could find haggis even, but i`m not sure why you`d want to). The festivals are great and the nightlife is amazing!

I absolutely LOVED it! I lived in Beaconsfield for the most part but I was downtown Montreal nearly every night. My friend Julian had an apartment in Old Montreal, oh my... I spent so much time there, sitting on his balcony, that was literally 3 feet by 4 feet and rickity as hell lol it was just so gorgeous ♥
I spent a lot of time at Aria, Stereo and Blue Dog... I window shopped a lot too lol St Laurent St ♥ ♥ ♥ Barri St scared the shit outta me lol
The absolute most amazing thing that happened to me while in Montreal was at the Jazz Festival. I met and got to talk to Divine Earth Essence and Erykah Badu....... I guess that could be one of the spontaneous things I could add to my list lol I walked up to Erykah Badu behind the gates and told her she was the most beautiful woman I have ever seen lol she gave me a hug and DEE came over and she had just been on stage... AMAZINNNNNG! I told them I was amazed by their talent and asked if they would mind sharing their time with me... we went to a lil table and sat down and had a mango drink while talking about the Jazz festival and how much energy you get from the people in the crowds.
We're supposed to be going to Toronto for my sisters wedding in 2012... I'm hoping that we can leave the kids with my family for a night and I can take Devon to Montreal to show him some places I wish I could have taken with me when I left lol

Oh my... this one is... a good one lol
- lots of piercings... everywhere...
- moving to Montreal @ 17, Mark came to BC and said we could have fun back in Montreal where he was from, so I told my parents I was moving to Montreal and asked if I could borrow $400 for a ticket... booked the ticket the next day and moved to Montreal a week later.
- moving to Australia @ 21, I asked my parents and grandparents to lend me the $2100, bought the ticket and then told Jake to pick me up at the airport the day before his birthday.
- Got home from Aus, Jake told me he cheated on me with some girl and got her knocked up, I bought a bus ticket, quit my job & went to my friends in PG the next day.
- bought $750 Lithium jeans instead of paying rent
- dancing to make some quick $$
- dating Devon
There's lots more... lots lots lots more... from 15 until I started dating Devon in 2008, I did what I wanted. If I wanted to move, I moved. If I didn't want to do 1 job, I quit and got another. I kinda just lived completely spontaneously.

Oh.. Some good ones:
-Shaved my head and got a tattoo on my scalp (the tattoo artist seriously asked me if I was drunk)
-Nipple piercing, lip piercing, nose piercing, double industrial piercing (not at the same time, but both were very spontaneous).
I'm sure there's more - Oh yeah, I drove 8 hours to visit a guy i'd been playing World of Warcraft with online for a long time, we had an awesome weekend of Playing video games and.. *that's all actually* - even though he was really really hot...

ok I lied - I did a few things without thinking it through. I got a tattoo on vacation in florida. I got my nipple pierced PROFESSIONALLY but the bitch got the needle stuck and I almost passed out so I wouldn't let her touch the other one after I had already paid for it. grrr. I just took it out when I got preggers with Allison.
I will also admit that I slept with a few randoms without thinking it through or palnning it... but hey... shit happens
Okay, how about planned spontaneity? Does that exist? My husband and I had been dating for four months when we proposed (first laid eyes on each other six months before) and we were married six months later. We would have gotten married right away, but we decided to be kind to our families. My parents were still helping me financially at the time and his parents live out of state. I would have regretted a spontaneous wedding for that reason.
Other than that, I guess my first few years of college I was slightly spontaneous. I live a 1.5 hr. drive from New Orleans so there was a lot of random time spent down there...where some spontaneous stuff just sort of happens. One night in particular we had gone swing dancing in our favorite spot, Rock N Bowl (just like it sounds...a bar, a dance club and bowling alley all rolled into one). When it closed we wanted to go to Bourbon. I was the DD and bad with directions and got lost, tried to make a U-turn hit the curb, knocked the bumper off my car. I promise, I wasn't drinking. One of the guys that was with us randomly said he had keys to a church about a block away (he worked there or something) so we all got out and walked to this church at 1 am. In the Big Easy, the murder capital of the South...very smart. We stole some duct tape and taped my car up and went on our way. On the way home to BR at about 4 am that morning, a huge thunderstorm hit and the duct tape gave out. We drove 25 mph all the way home and got back around 10 am.
Yes, that's my wildest night. I'm such a rebel.

Hmmm... getting a tattoo (Jordan "hey can I tattoo this on you?" Me "why?" Jordan "Because I want to do it" Me "sure go for it.")
"Borrowing" a car...ahem...
Piercing my nipple.
Piercing my friends nipple (in a tent, at night, for the hell of it lol)
Deciding to sleep with Jordan (he was NOT my type at all :P)

i'm not spontaneous. i would be if i didn't have kids. i would love to take up and go somewhere and not have to worry about anything with the boys. i've always had children since i've been with my hubby, so it puts a damper on things. last year was when we got our honeymoon to hawaii - 6 years after we got married, lol.

Umm, I would have to say go camping.. We were out one afternoon, decided we wanted to do something more on our vacation, so we packed up the van and left at 3am for camping (and we drove 19 hours to get there, so it wasn't a close camping thing) and we didn't really have anything "camping" besides a tent, so we inprovised the rest, it was.. interesting, especially when our 8 month old at the time decided to scream at 3am.. (we went for a car ride to avoid waking up the whole campground).
Got a matching tattoo with my now husband (at the time we had been together 2 months). The matching tattoo thing was something I never thought i'd do, but I designed it and we both liked it, so we went for it..
