First Friend: The first friend that I really remember is Courtney Yun. She was about my age in lived in my cul-de-sac in Pennsylvania. We still keep in touch even though it's been over 10 years since we've seen each other.
First Time to Disneyland: Never been to Disneyland, however I've been to Disneyworld about 10 times at least. Growing up in the midwest, we were Florida vacation people, not California.
First Memorable Gift: This is hard! Probably my Teddy Ruxbin I got when I was like 3. I loved it! You'd stick a tape in his back and he'd start talking to me. A little creepy maybe.
First Time Wearing Makeup: Costume makeup- probably when I was 3 or 4 and was a clown for Halloween. I let my mom put lipstick on my cheeks. My first real makeup experience was probably in the 5th grade or something when I was allowed to wear clear mascara. I was so excited about it, but now that I look back on it, clear mascara really didn't do anything. Except sting a lot when it got in my eye.
First Birthday Party: The first one that I actually remember was my 5th- we were living in Missouri and I had all my pre-school friends over. I don't remember much, but I know that I had little pointy hats for everyone to wear. They were pink.
First Car: Oh geez, that's the 1990 Mazda 626. More like the Mazda 666. It would stall and rev its engine without me doing a thing. Luckily I got an upgrade a year later :)
First Job: Custard girl at Ritters Frozed Custard. Loved it, only because I got free custard and worked with all my friends.
First Car Accident: I've never been the driver in a real accident (I've had like 3 teeny fender-benders, but those don't count), but I was a passenger in one. Senior year in high school, right after bridge jumping in the middle of the night into a lake, right after a big storm... real smart, I know.... anyway the driver was going real fast on slick roads and we skidded into a highway guardrail thing, spun around and hit a tree. Scariest moments of my life. Luckily, no one was hurt. We just felt like idiots calling my friend's dad to help us at 2 am when we weren't supposed to be out anyway.
First Concert: N Sync when I was in 8th grade. This was before they got really big and Britney Spears was their opening act.
First College Roommate: Hello, Lindsay Romans-Adamson. I feel so lucky, because I could've gotten any nutcase off the street and I got a girl who became one of the best friends I've ever had.
First Airplane Ride Alone: I was 6 years old and my parents flew me to Orlando for a week to visit my Aunt Kathy. I think that's illegal now, right? Kids have to be like 8 or something I think.
First Time I Met Ben: Sadly I don't remember our first ever meeting. His family moved to my town when I was a freshman in high school. We went to the same high school and ward, so I saw him around a lot. I remember seeing him with some people in the halls on one of his first days at school and thinking "Wow, he's hanging out with the partiers. I wonder if he knows."
First Kiss with Ben: It was on our 4th date, and I think that we got some food and then went back to his place to watch a movie. We were watching Kate and Leopold, and after a close call or 2, we kissed during the movie. I know, I know, kind of a boring story. But it was fab!
First Home with Ben: Stonecrest Apartments in Provo. Living next door to Megan and Dave, which was great!
First Real Job: My current job, working for DCFS in American Fork. So far I love it- it's just starting to get really busy and making me feel like I'm actually doing something.
First Time I Realized I Wasn't a Kid Any More: Geez, I don't know... I think that one time when I realized that I wasn't a kid was 2 summers ago when I visited home for a week and hung out with my high school girlfriends at their college. I felt like my life was so far from what theirs was- I was living on my own, paying my bills, married... and their lives were about their sororities, friends, and parties... not that their lives are less than mine or anything... I just realized that I was now different... I was a grown up with a grown up life and responsibilities.
