~ Moments of 1st ~

Over the last couple of months I have experianced a lot of 1st for me. I want to share those 1st with you. I have broken them down into 2 catagories. The 1st that I love and will do again. The 1st that I hate and (hope n plan) never want to do again.

~ 1st that I have Loved (almost) every minute of the experiance ~
  • Moving out of the South ..... dont get me wrong I loved living there but I am enjoying the new experiances and the new things that come with moving to a new city where you do not know anyone
  • Ran a half-marathon with my family....finished in 3:03. This was an awesome accomplishment that I am very proud of and cant wait to run my next one.
  • Last summer I went White Water Rafting with my family in Tenn. We had a great time and I would love to go rafting again.
  • Renting my first apartment/condo.
  • Seeing the West coast and Pacific ocean....Awesome!
  • Eating King Crab Legs....Yummmmmmm
  • Setting up my family and friends on we can video chat more often
  • Last November Nate took me golfing for the first time....and got me my own set of clubs. (who would of ever thought I would be a casual golfer)
  • Learning how to use Photoshop and creating new pictures
  • Driving on freeways (which are what the south calls interstates) that have 7 lanes in one about an adreniline rush every time you get on the freeway
  • Riding the Ferris Wheel at Santa Monica Pier with Nate
  • Wearing a Tie
~ 1st that I hope to not repeat anytime soon ~
  • Drive across most of the country in 3 days
  • Eating raw oysters
  • Eating sushi
  • Worked my first door-to-door sales job....Not something I want to repeat....still having nightmares about that job
  • Being out of work for 6 weeks.
  • Trying a new church every week....I do not like looking for a new church family
I know this is not all the first, I am sure there will be more to come......Life is all about embracing the new and exciting things while learning from each experiance.

Thanks Valerie! This is my second (or is it third?) attempt at blogging, and I'm actually impressed with how well it is going.

I just try to post every week day and then I join Blog parties on Fridays where I meet new friends and follow new blogs, this has led me to see a lot of GREAT blogs that are WAY better than mine and challenges me and gives me new ideas. your first lists...the first time I tried sushi I did NOT like it one bit, but I tried it a couple more times and now it is my absolute favorite. Don't knock it yet, give it another chance!
