There’s a “first’s survey” floating around the blog world and as doing a pre-made survey is WAY easier than figuring out something to blog about, I’m gonna go with it…


1. First thing you do when you wake up in the morning.
Depends a lot on the day. But, usually give the Hubs a quick kiss (he’s still asleep about 99% of the time) and then go to the bathroom. I always wake up with a full bladder! TMI? Oh well. I just drink so much water during the day!


2. First thing you reach for when you open the fridge.
Well, why did I go to fridge? In the morning, I reach for my pre-packed lunch to take with me. Usually otherwise it’s for a drink (flavored water, as of late).

3. First thing you do when you go to the gym.
Go the lockeroom to put my stuff down and to fill my water bottle from the water fountain.


4. First thing you do you when you get home from work/school.
Bring my gym back upstairs and pull the dirty/sweating/stinky clothes from the morning out and then re-pack it for the next day. I also pull out the outfit for the next day and hang that on the doorknob so it’s all ready to go. I also set my gym clothes out for the next morning. Gotta do it all the night before so there's no excuses the next morning! Plus, it lets me sleep even just 5 more minutes in the morning which makes it SO worth it.


5. First car.
A red Ford Taurus station wagon. Yup. I was the coolest 16 year old station wagon driver EVER.


6. First car accident/traffic violation.
Yeaaah…. Not so funny story, actually. I kinda accidently flipped my mom’s SUV over (as in, we were hanging upside down from our seatbelts) when I was still on my learners permit. WHOOPS. NO ONE GOT HURT—thank God!! And, to be fair—it was an SUV and it was raining. I wasn’t even speeding! It was just a bad situation. I didn’t get ticketed or anything, but her car was definitely totaled. WHOOPS!

7. First choice beverage.
DIET PEPSI. Obviously. Happens to be the Hubs first choice too. Match made in soft drink heaven.


8. First thing you wanted to be when you grew up.
“The Boss”. I didn’t care what kind of boss or who I was going to boss, as long as I was the boss. I also went through a phase where I wanted to be a TOLL BOOTH WORKER. I wish I was kidding. I was a weird kid. Don’t judge.


9. First choice breakfast.
Not sure… but, the first thing to pop in my head is a bacon, egg and cheese bagel from McDonalds w/ no sauce. SO GOOD. I love breakfast food. Bagels, doughnuts, French toast, pancakes—I’ll take them all. I just love food. Doesn't much matter the kind.

10. First choice dessert.
Fro. Yo. If you didn’t know that already, you don’t know me.

11. First *major* purchase.
Well, when I was 18 I bought a computer to take with me to college. At the time, it was a BIG purchase to me. Since then, I’ve bought another computer (a Mac this time… WAY more pricey) which didn’t seem like quite as big of a deal. I haven’t bought a car or a house or anything though, so I don’t think I really have made a “MAJOR” purchase.

12. First song that comes to mind…
Well, the one that’s playing right this second is Jason Mraz “I’m Yours”. Love that song. Love him. Love.
Pics from the time my friend and I went to see Jason Mraz!!! LOVED it!! 


13. First job.
I worked at a smoothie place in the mall called Fruitlati for like a week before getting a better paying job as a Hostess at a Mexican restaurant called Casa Gallardo where I worked all through high school and on college breaks.


14. First time you flew on a plane.
Oh, jeez! I have no idea. I was likely really, really little. I’ve flown a lot. I honestly have no idea! I do know the last time I flew, though! It was coming home from our cruise from Tampa to Chicago.
Clearly not a plane... but, it is us on that cruise!


15. First pet you owned.
Well, I personally have never owned a pet... well, other than a fish or two. Our family has had pets, but they've never been MINE. The Hubs and I are thiiiiiiis close to adding a pet to our little family! We're trying to adopt a dog through a local shelther. This little girl may be joining our family soon!

Now, tell me one of your firsts!

  1. I always grab my almond milk in the morning or carrots for Tia & Maisy.

    The first thing I do at the gym (when I had a membership) was stake a out a TM.

    My first major purchase was my house when I was 23. Talk about anxiety!

    My first job was as a barista which I worked through college too and on school breaks. I make a mean latte.

    My favorite dessert is also Fro Yo. So many great options!

    Breakfast is oatmeal or those turkey bacon sandwiches from Starbucks. Love those!

    My first choice beverage would be water with NUUN or my soda choice would be Diet Dr. Pepper or my alcohol choice would be a good glass of cab or pinot.

    My first pet was an evil cat named Penny. I was in the 2nd grade when we got her. Turned out she was deaf and super mean. We had to carry newspapers to beat her off of us because she attacked us. The only person she liked was my dad- she loved him.
