First Things First!

I'm linking up with Halie again this week!

First Things First

First movie you went to without your parents
This question is taking it way back! I could totally tell you the answer to this question if I was at my parents house because I kept *ALL* of my movie ticket stubs growing up.  I’m kind of a pack rat when it comes to memory type stuff like that.  I really have no idea.  I could throw out a movie just to answer, but it wouldn't be accurate.  Now I want to go to my mom & dad’s to find all my movie tickets!

First sport you played (either Little League-style or in school)
Gymnastics.  I started pretty young, but only did it for a few years.  I tried softball for 2 years (I’m not even sure why I did it for that long).  I was h-o-r-r-i-b-l-e at softball. Ask my bf Kristy…she will 100% agree with that statement J  Then I started cheering in 6th grade and I found the sport that I was good at!

First major injury
I broke my leg when I was about 4 or 5.  Let me set the scene for you.  I was at daycare and we were all outside playing on the playground.  A few of us were playing on the tire swing (my story might be one of the reasons there are no longer tire swings on community playgrounds...ha!) and it was my turn to push.  Remember how the pusher would run in circles and then jump on at the last second to enjoy the ride as well? Yeah, I did that, but the speed of which I pushed was extreme (helllooo muscles) and my legs ended up sliding off the tire.  I still was holding on to the chains. {Picture a little blonde 5 year old flying in the air, hands on the tire swing chains, legs flying in circles} Fun ended when my leg hit the wooden pole that the tire swing was hung on. Yeah. That happened.  To top things off, when I got my cast, I wasn't strong enough to hold my weight on crutches, so I had a walker. I wish I had a picture on my computer right now of this.  Hilarious!


  1. OH my gosh that tire swing story! It sounds awful, but it's also pretty funny to picture in your head :) Sorry you had such a bad tire swing experience, but thanks for sharing it with us! haha :) Glad you linked up again this week!

    1. It is definitely funny to think back on! Thanks for some fun topics this week!

  2. Oh my goodness! Your poor little 5 year old self! But I bet the walker was kinda funny/cute!!

    1. haha I need to find the pictures so I can show proof of the walker...to be continued!
