Tagged: First and Last

this tagging business is fun. and it's good timing too, cause i don't have time to create ideas for posts on my own just now, and i refuse to be one of those people that just rehash every detail of what's going on in my life right now ("and then, we went to my sister's husband's aunt's house and she was all like, cleaning, and so then we went to...."). So thanks to Charlotte for giving me something to post today!


First memory...
I think i was maybe three (is that really late for a "first memory?") and my cousin was staying at our house. i guess my eyes were half open as i slept, cause she screamed for my mom that she thought i was dead.

First kiss...
I was in 7th grade, and his name was Jeff. He was really cute, but had a weird B.O issue. we had gone to Chuck E. Cheese with a group of friends and were in the back of his dad's truck on our way back to my house. "So in Love" was on the radio, and his brother was sitting in between us. when his brother leaned forward to grab something from the front seat, Jeff leaned over and kissed me. it was magical. well, ghetto magical.
First concert attended...
Randy Travis at the Kern County Fair.
First love...
his name was Ben Dee. it was 6th grade. i loved him as much as i knew of love. he played Prince Charming and I played Cinderella in the school play. we met playing tetherball. he was wonderful. moved to Arizona at the end of the year...broke my little naive heart. i still have a picture of him though, just after the opening night of the play, still wearing the crown.
First thing you think in the morning...
the old classic..."just five more minutes!" See previous posting on my addiction to the snooz button.
First book you remember loving...
My mom says that i used to make her read "baby goes around the block" like about ten times a day. the first book i remember loving myself is "Are you there God? It's me, Margaret."
First pet...
yet another classic: a white cat that i named "snowball." who HASN'T had a cat named snowball?!?!
First question you'll ask in Heaven (If that's allowed)...
if i died right now, in this exact place in my life, i think i might ask "why me?" not in the way that you might think, but "why did you choose me? why did you do all that just for me? why do you love me?" kind of way.
First place you think of when you hear the word vacation...
Coast in California. i tried real hard to get myself to think something exotic first, but i kept going back to this one spot on the beach not too far from where i grew up. plus, i'd get to have In and Out, and that is a vacation all by itself!
First best friend...
Her name was Anna. I don't remember anything about her anymore, except for the time we went to Disneyland together, and had breakfast with the chipmunks from "chip and dale rescue rangers." that was fun. we wore fanny packs.
Last time you dressed up...
i've been singing in a lot of weddings lately. so i get to be dressy for those. that's fun. i've got a wedding coming up in about a week that i get to be REAL dressy for, and i'm excited about that. plus, all these weddings give me a good reason to go shopping for new pretty clothes!
Last thing you ate...
I just got back from having dinner with our neighbors Rici and Jason. Rici made this awesome italian meal that featured a baked chicken spaghetti, and ended with a DELICIOUS tiramisu. Thanks Rici!
Last CD bought...
Bethany Dillon, who is a BRILLIANT singer/songwriter (and only 16) just released her second album "imagination" this past Tuesday. I've been looking forward to it for several months now, and it didn't let me down! it's awesome.
Last time you cried...
this week was ridiculous. i cried about 8 times, for no apparent reason. like making a simple and harmless mistake at work, and i just started crying and ACTUALLY said the following, "I just HATE making mistakes. why can't i just do everything perfectly." feel free to hate me for being that girl
Last time you told someone you loved them...
ten minutes ago i told my mom that i love her. because i do.
Last really fun thing you did...
there are some people in my life who would claim that anytime i do something very funny, it's because i'm trying real hard to be serious. hmph. i don't guess i'm a really funny chic...but i laugh a lot, and i make other people feel like they're real funny.
Last thing you watched on T.V...
I'm currently watching "The Surreal Life." and i'm not ashamed.
Last Halloween costume...
I was a fairy, complete with wings, a cute tutu and glitter. i like dainty things.
Last Concert attended...
oh man...well last weekend i saw Natalie Grant at the Women of Faith conference. she's way better in person than on the cd/radio. she made a fan out of me. which is a big step up from how i felt about her before. that chick has pipes for daaaaays.
Last time you had a really moving spiritual experience...
also last weekend. Tammy Trent (who did NOT make a fan out of me, musically speaking) was telling the story of losing her husband, and then sang a song she had written shortly after as a worship song. The song was so real, so raw. One line said, "Even though my heart still cries, I'll always ask the question 'why?' " and i really just started crying because i realised that faith and questions can co-exist, and that I don't have to wait for answers to be grateful for the questions.


fun fun fun. Thanks again Charlotte.

Ben Dee Really? That's awesome. Sounds like a superhero, or supervillain.

Mrs. Andrea Wood said...

I'm sorry but how much was Ben Dee made fun of? I'm 23 and the first thing I think is Gumby- I can only imagine what children would say!

I was just browsing various blogs as I was doing a search on the word halloween, and I just wanted to say that I really like what you've done with your blog, even though it wasn't particularly related to what I searched for. I appreciate your postings, and your blog is a good example of how a blog should be done. I've only just recently started a Posters website - feel free to visit it when you get a chance if you wish. Much success, antonio.
