First Things First!

Before I get started with my weekly link-up with Halie, I have some SUPER exciting news for any of you that follow the NFL. Today, at the relief of several million people around the US, Tony Gonzalez announced that he will return for another season with the Atlanta Falcons!

*Insert Shrill Here*
Tony Gonzalez is a future Hall of Famer who has never won a Superbowl ring. He spent most of his career with the KC Chiefs, but KC traded him to the Falcons late in his career in hopes that he may one day get the ring he deserves. This is our year, Falcons fans! It's time to RISE UP and give Tony the ring he deserves!! 

TD, Tony G!

Okay, back on topic!

It's First Things First with Halie, Allie and Carrie! Let's do this thang!

1. First Magazine Subscription.
My first REAL magazine subscription that I ever picked out for myself was Teen Vogue. I loved reading that magazine back then. I remember it being really small but fat. Like, it wasn't a normal sized magazine. I may actually still have a stockpile of them at my mom's house. After I read them, I used them for collages, along with my subscription to Seventeen and CosmoGirl. What can I say? I was a magazine junkie.

2. First REAL Piece of Jewelry You Owned. 
My parents bought me a little diamond ring when I was a baby. My mom still has it at the house. It's just a little gold band with a little bitty diamond on it. I'm pretty sure it wouldn't even fit my pinky anymore, but I love that I have it. I also remember one time finding a ring in the ball pit at McDonalds when I was a little girl. It was gold and had a ruby stone with diamonds around it. No one ever put out a missing ad for it so I got to keep it. It was so pretty! I was so excited when I found it!

3. First Time I stayed Home Alone.
I honestly can not remember this. We grew up living next door to my grandparents, so technically we were never 'alone'. I will tell you one thing: I'm almost positive that the first time I ever stayed home alone, I was on the phone about 90% of that time. I couldn't stay off of the phone when I was that age. I don't know what my problem was. Now, I don't really like talking on the phone. What gives?

Are you linking up with us this week? You should! 


  1. Haha I was the same way- I loved talking on the phone and now, it feels like such a chore!

    1. I'm guessing it's the invention of texting. It's the only thing I can figure!

  2. Thanks for linking up! I can never understand how anyone likes being on the phone. I've never enjoyed it haha.

    1. I'm gonna be honest here: it's so hard for me to be on the phone! When someone calls me it's like I immediately zone out and pay no attention to what they are saying. If it's something important, text me! LOL

  3. Oh girl I used to have tons of magazines too, and was always doing collages and craft projects with them! (And let's be honest, sometimes I still use them for that...) Glad you joined in again to link up with us!

    1. I have actually kept all of my collages that I've made over the years. It's pretty wild to see how they've gotten better as I got older and wiser. LOL
