Friday Favorites: FIRSTS

I literally have nothing to say today. So, I thought it would be fun to fill out one of those old school "surveys" we used to get via email and have to forward to our entire contact list or we'd be cursed with something. 

Here's an old one I found and updated the answers for... 

1. Who was your FIRST prom date?
Jason Williams...I was a freshman in high school and he was a junior. We bonded over basketball and just had the best time! 

Let's discuss the above picture. Red dress - check; Red panty hose - check; red shoes - check; super confident freshman girl stuffing her face with not a care in the world - CHECK. 

2. Do you still talk to your FIRST love?

3. What was your 1st alcoholic drink?My brother and I accidentally drank some vodka at my Godfather's once, he had it in what looked like, a water cooler on top of his bar in the game room. We were thirsty. It did not quench our thirst.  But then I not-so-accidentally drank a fuzzy navel wine cooler in HS. (Just one, Mom, promise). 

4. What was your FIRST job?Concession stand at the little league ballfield...ahhh, those were the days! LOVED this job! I also loved the unlimited cheese fries...

5. What was your FIRST car?
The Big E!! 1994 TEAL Ford Escort ... it was sitting in our garage one day after school with a giant red bow on it... I was SO EXCITED!

The Big E was basically the best. It had automatic seatbelts and gray seats with little speckles of color on them which totally sold me on it. Ha!
