Fun "Firsts!"

My friend M over at In The Fashion Lane put up this cute post a little while ago and of course, meme lover that I am, I had to steal it for my blog too. I swear I love nothing more than answering questions about myself. I really missed my calling as a celeb, US Weekly would have had a field day with me. I'm an open book!

FIRST thing I do in the morning...
I definitely hit snooze a couple times. After that, I check email on my phone before I get out of bed... and my first destination is the thermostat in the den, to turn the air conditioning off - after running all night, it is FREEZING in our apartment!


This could be Rami in the morning, no joke.

FIRST thing I do when I get home from work...
Hmmm... I drop my purse and keys off in the kitchen and go kiss Ram hello. He usually beats me home!

My FIRST kiss...
I was 12. It was in his vegetable garden in his backyard. He "wanted to show me something" so we headed outside - he said "Look, an onion!", I turned my head, and he laid one on me! I was so excited afterwards I made my best friend sleep over so we could talk about it all night. Ha!

My FIRST home...

From the time my parents brought me home from the hospital til age 12 we lived in the hills of Sherman Oaks in a little house on a cul-de-sac. My main memories of that house include how my sister and I used to cut all the hair off of our Barbies and how every Saturday night when my parents went out to dinner, we would watch All That on Nickelodeon and eat macaroni and cheese. 


  
My FIRST car...
I learned to drive on a white Land Rover and drove that for about six months while I was still "getting the hang of it." My first NEW car was a gorgeous Infiniti QX4 that I loved so much - I cried when I traded it in!

FIRST song that comes to mind...
All day I have been singing the new Pink song - Just Give Me A Reason. I love it.

FIRST major purchase...
I used a ton of graduation money from my grandparents to buy my beloved Chanel bag. I remember feeling SO ANXIOUS when I wrote the check to the Neiman Marcus salesgirl... but it has been worth every penny and more!


FIRST choice restaurant...
I mean... my first choice is ALWAYS sushi. So I guess it's a tie between all the places I love - Kushiyu and Ichiban Kan in the valley, Hide Sushi on Sawtelle, Izakaya on 3rd. Those are my favorites!

My beloved spicy tuna crispy rice... I bet your mouth is watering!


FIRST "big girl" job...
My very first job out of college was for The Jewish Federation in Public Relations. I was a baby! I still can't believe they hired me... thank god they did, it launched my career!

FIRST time I flew...
Apparently I flew to New York when I was only FIVE WEEKS OLD to visit my family for Rosh Hashanah. Mom. Dad. What were you thinking?! Of course, I was an ANGEL baby so I didn't cry at all.... but I much prefer the story of how, when I first learned to talk, I stood up in my seat facing the people behind me and talked to them for five hours straight in my little baby voice. I'm shocked they didn't scream at my parents :)

Well that was fun! Leave me a comment if you decide to do it too!

awww what a fun post... haven't seen this yet, but adore it! SO jealous of your Chanel bag; still don't have the guts to make that purchase. Almost think it's easier right out of school. I feel too much responsibility now! :(

Fun!
