Some Firsts

 I originally wasn't going to blog today because I don't have outfit pics or wish lists made. I have been uninspired lately, although I have a BIG post planned for my 1000 post, which is coming up very soon! So when I saw this on my friend, through blogging and in real life, Kristen's blog I knew I had to copy!
So LUCKY readers... Here are my "Firsts".


FIRST thing I do in the morning...
- I hit snooze, fall back asleep, then grab my phone to check texts, emails and Instagram before forcing myself to get out of bed to pee and brush my teeth. I may or may not get BACK into bed after that as well.

FIRST thing I do when I get home from work...
- Now that I work from home this answer is not applicable but previously I would walk in, take off my shoes, go to the bathroom and then plop on my bed for five minutes of silence.

My FIRST kiss...
- Was at the end of 7th grade, I was 13, with my first "boyfriend". It happened under a tree in the neighborhood that he lived in. My parents moved to that neighborhood ten years later and I used to pass that spot whenever I went to visit. Awwwww, young love!  

My FIRST home...
- Well my first home as a child was in La Habra, CA. It was two bedrooms and had one bathroom. I shared a room with both my sisters. Tight quarters. My first "home" as an adult would be my condo that I live in now. I had numerous (as in 6, my dad moved me every time) apartments over the years of being on my own but this is the first that I consider "mine" because we remodeled and renovated everything. I am still decorating and will be for awhile. :/
 
My FIRST car...
- Was a 1998 Chevy Cavalier Convertible in purple. Oh yes, it was the epitome of cool. I still miss driving with the top down!

 Not my actual car but I saw this one in a parking lot and had to take a pic since it is the same style and color.

My FIRST accident traffic violation...
- I rear ended someone at a light, that was GREEN, because someone ran into the middle of the road and everyone stopped suddenly. I was listening to Britney Spears' "Baby, One more time" and was a mile away from my house. I then had to drive my mom's minivan because I wasn't old enough to drive the rental car. There is nothing cooler than driving a minivan your Junior year of High School. Lol.

The FIRST thing I wanted to be when I grew up...
- The first thing I remember distinctly is wanting to be a Fashion Designer. I went through a ream of printer paper "designing". My first sketches had boobs the size of Dolly Parton's and a waist that was teeny tiny. Even back then I had a skewed vision of the "perfect body type". 

FIRST drink of choice...
- Non Alcoholic: Ice tea with extra ice. 
- Alcoholic: A GOOD Beer

FIRST dessert of choice...
-  Oh gosh... tough choice! I would say either the 'Salty Caramel' cupcake from Sprinkles or the Creme Brulee from the Yardhouse.



FIRST choice restaurant...
- Overall: Yardhouse
- Mediterranean food: Open Sesame
- Sushi: Sushi on Fire
- Steak: Flemings
- Mexican: Javier's

FIRST song that comes to mind...
- It is always a Country song. Right now it is George Strait 'Give it all we got Tonight'.

FIRST major purchase...
- I saved my money to buy a Louis Vuitton when I went to Europe when I was 20
- I bought a Westin Heavenly bed when I moved into my beach apartment by myself after getting my first "Big Girl" job
- I bought an Infiniti G35 coupe as my first car that I bought for myself. I was 23 and making good money and STUPID! Haha.

FIRST job...
- My first job was working at a tanning salon. It was a great first job to have. I hooked my friends up!

FIRST time I flew...
- Apparently I flew at 3 months old to meet my Dad's family in Kansas City, MO and either vomited or pooped all over my Mom's white pants at the beginning of the flight. Why my mom wore white pants on a flight with an infant is beyond me (Really, mom?). The first time I remember flying was to San Francisco with my Gram when I was 9.  

FIRST "big girl" job...   
- My first "big girl" job was with Nordstrom. I worked for them for 8 years and held a variety of positions. I learned a lot. I grew up a lot. It was a priceless experience.

Tell me... What are some of your Firsts??
