My First Time

I saw this post a few weeks ago and figured I'd save it for a rainy day - or today since I've traveling again this week in the big apple... you are welcome.  Go check her out and play this game next time you need an idea - http://ninikat.blogspot.com/2013/08/my-first-time.html

1.  First Tweet -  This is funny because I totally remember watching the royal wedding on my DVR and rewinding numerous times to watch that woman.  She missed the shot that everyone was waiting for because she wasn't wearing all day mascara.

2.  First blog post - http://insertclassyhere.blogspot.com/2006/11/election-day-2006.html  This was technically my second blog post ever, but the first didn't really say anything.  I don't remember the first post on this blog because I've merged them all together... sorry.

3.  First blog you subscribed to - I read two blogs religiously before I realized that commenting and clicking the side bar was a thing.  Now I have a million favorites, but I still read these two every day.

4.  First Facebook profile picture - Remember, I'm working on the "classy" thing.  Here's a great example of what not to do in the future.

5.  Do you still talk to your first love?  I don't really know who my first love was.  I see my first boyfriend around the neighborhood and chat with him sometimes.  I only had one real heart break and that loser is mowing lawns and shoveling driveways for a living now... I win.

6.  First alcoholic drink -  Wine cooler from my parent's basement.  It was gross.

7.  First job - Serving ice cream at Conny's Creamy Cone.

8.  First car - 1994 Nissan Maxima named the Red Dragon

9.  First person to text you today - Annika, our dog sitter, to tell me that she is the dog whisperer because Lola ate her whole bowl of dog food.  Lola usually skips a few meals when we leave town because she gets so nervous.  She loves Annika and apparently is getting used to us being gone during the work week.  I can't wait to have a break from traveling.

10.  First person you thought of this morning -  My husband.  Duh.

11.  First grade teacher -  Mr. Cash.  He wore bright colored shirts and made us march in a single file line in the hallways yelling "left... left... left, right, left."

12.  Where did you go on your first airplane ride? - I went to visit my cousins in Denver when I was just a baby and then many more times growing up.

13.  First best friend - My next door neighbor.  Clearly, I choreographed his life and he loved it.

14.  Where was your first sleepover? - Can't really remember my first sleepover.  I remember one slumber party in 3rd grade at Ashley's house.  I decided I didn't want to spend the night and when my dad came to pick me up, he was blaring Gangsta's Paradise... I was MORTIFIED, but it was a moment I never forgot.

15.  First thing you did this morning - Cuddled my dogs.

16.  First concert you went to - I saw Shania Twain with my mom and some girlfriends.

17.  First broken bone - I broke my ankle playing hockey and had to be in crutches for 12 weeks in middle school.  It was miserable.

18.  First piercing - I have never had a piercing.

19.  First foreign country you visited - Canada... because it's close.

20.  First movie you remember seeing - The Addam's Family is the first one I really remember.  I know I went to Disney movies as a kid.

21.  First detention - I went to a Catholic School and as much as I loved wearing a uniform, I also loved pushing the boundaries of said uniform.  Trying to wear black sweatpants instead of black dress pants was something I got away with often, but got busted for just a much.

22.  First roommate - Emma the Dilemma.

23.  First sport you were involved in - Hockey.

24.  First thing you do when you get home - I take my pants off... I feel like Al Bundy when I say that.

25.  When was your first kiss?  - It was a summer in between 6th and 7th grade and I can even remember the Abercrombie & Fitch shirt I was wearing with my awesome jean shorts.

So, play along and make sure to tell me when you do.  Wish us luck on our apartment hunt.


  1. This is great! I love your answers.
    Enjoy NY

  2. I love the old pics! I always change immediately after I feed the dogs.

  3. This is so great! I'm definitely going to do this idea, as well! :)

    I loved that you choreographed your neighbor's life, too. That is probably one of the best pictures I've seen in a while! :)

  4. Haha, I have to change shirts the second I walk in the door because my cat wants to snuggle and he has ruined multiple tops with his claws... I learned my lesson really fast!

  5. I actually enjoyed reading through this posting.Many thanks.

  6. Take your pants off!!! LOL I seriously hate wearing pants. When I slept over at my hubby's place ohhhhh 8 years ago.. I told him that I hate wearing pants to bed.. but that wasn't an invitation for funny business.
    Aaaand, your first facebook picture is fantastic.

  7. Haha..I just did this one on my blog today. It was really fun to fill out.. turns out I'm not super classy myself..

  8. I can't believe you've never had a piercing! How did you survive the 90's?? I read Helene and Whitney before I started blogging as well. Good inspiration I'd say.


Thanks for reading my ramblings. It makes my heart happy.
