First Things First

This is a very cool and unique link up.

What you do is link up like you normally would BUT they have "firsts" that they want everyone to share. Each week will be different. Today's first are: First job, first car and first date. 

Here it goes! 

First Job
My first job was at a little sandwich shop in my hometown when I was 15. My brother's friend's parents (cousins' sister's uncle HA! just kidding) built a new restaurant which is HUGE for my little town and they needed workers. I was so excited. My interview was a working interview at their food trailer at the county fair. It was so stinkin HOT and busy in that thing but I must've been qualified cause I got the job! I loved that job so much. I worked there for 3 years then I was off to bigger and better things!

First Car
My first car was a easter egg! Literally it was a '99 Mercury Sable and it was a pastel purple-ish pink. A lot of people called it a mary kay car. It got totaled after I drove it for a few years. NOT MY FAULT! I got rear ended and the frame was bent. It was my mom's old car so a hand me down of course.

First Date
I never really had a first date like in high school and stuff so I will just tell you a little bit about me and my hunny! We were introduced by a friend. He was living in Hawaii and I lived at home still. We knew it was love after we first spoke on the phone. We "dated" over the phone for three months and he flew from Hawaii to Ohio to see me for the first time ever! I was so nervous waiting for him at the airport. Thoughts like "what if he isn't really coming." "What if he is a killer." "What if he doesn't like me." But when He came 'round that baggage claim conveyor belt he scooped me up and gave me my last first kiss! It was beautiful. MUSH!

Our Last First Kiss!
Anyway now its your turn! I'm looking forward to learning more about you all!
