I was in a survey mood today! Since it’s Thankful Thursday as well, I’ll tell you want I’m especially grateful for today– generosity. My dog toy happy hour event is tonight and WOW, the response has been terrific and I’ve been getting dog toys in the mail left and right. So excited! Will let you know how the event goes!
Okay and back to the survey…..This was a fun one that made me think.
1. First thing you do when you wake up in the morning.
Turn off my alarm. Grab my phone, check my email, and read a blog or two while still in bed with the lights out. Get up. Splash water on my face.
2. First thing you reach for when you open the fridge.
The water pitcher, almond milk, or sparkling water.
3. First things you do when you get to the gym.
Claim my machine! (if I’m using one). Figure out if the tv is working on the machine….it doesn’t work on a few, so I always make sure before I even start my workout. I like to watch tv rather than listen to music when I’m on the treadmill or elliptical.
4. First thing you do when you get home from work.
Put on comfortable clothes. I can’t wait to put on sweats or just get out of what I’ve been in all day after a day at the office. Then, I immediately start dinner. I’m usually really hungry by the time I get home.
5. First car.
A 1985 red Volvo! It was safe, worked well, and I didn’t have to pay for it—but it was a huge boat! I couldn’t parallel park for years because I was so scared after driving that huge car (it wasn’t even a station wagon, I just thought it was huge).
6. First car accident / traffic violation.
I don’t know if this counts, but one night when I was 17, I was driving home from meeting my best friend and some boys we had crushes on….I thought one of the boys was behind me, so I was trying to be “cool” and was driving faster than I should have (lame, I know, but it was high school). Turns out it was the police behind me, not the guy….and I got pulled over. No ticket though, just a lecture from the cop. Nice perk of being a girl!
7. First thing you wanted to be when you grew up.
A teacher. I was going to have a farm with lots of animals too and bring my class there for field trips. I did get my teaching credential and though I didn’t pursue working in a classroom (and won’t ever have a farm!), sometimes I still think I would have been happy as a teacher.
8. First beverage of choice.
Water, straight up, no ice. I drink a ton of water every day and prefer it over anything else.
9. First choice breakfast.
I’ve been eating eggs a lot lately. Otherwise, I’d say a green smoothie.
10. First choice dessert.
Gooey chocolate cake.
11. First song that comes to mind.
Ahhh, I can’t think of anything, weird.
12. First major purchase.
My car. After college I bought a new Honda civic. I was so proud to have bought something so expensive.
13. First job.
A “scooper” at Ben and Jerrys. I made sundaes, milkshakes, waffle cones…..and ate way too much ice cream in that 9 months. My family and friends loved me though because I’d bring ice cream home for them regularly.
14. First time you flew on a plane.
Hmmm, I don’t know. We traveled a lot when I was a kid, so my guess would be that my first flight was down to LA when I was a toddler.
And that’s it! Your turn!
– Pick one and answer
– How old were you when you flew on a place, what was your first car, what was the first thing you wanted to be when you “grew up” etc
