Hello December
 Hello December...
it's wonderful to see you. 
Although I must say you came a little too fast for my liking.
  But I am glad to see you because there are so many things
 that you offer this time of year. 
 The birth of Jesus Christ who is my Savior. 
Our first Christmas with Baby Pancakes. 
Spending time with my family in Canada.
Warm and cozy nights. 
Beautifully decorated Christmas trees.
  And lots and lots of joy.
What better way to celebrate December then doing a questionnaire entitled Firsts
I found this on Lacey of The Next Chapter and thought it was a super sweet idea!
I added a few of my should join in!!

1. First thing you do when you wake up in the morning.
Most mornings Baby Pancakes wakes me up so the first thing
 I do is try to gather myself before going to get him. 
 I am usually awake but sometimes I am still sleepy!

2. First thing you reach for when you open the fridge.
Usually something to eat nowadays it's cheese to go with my crackers.
I am obsessed right now.
fruit, crackers and cheese
3. First things you do when you go to the gym.
It's been awhile but I wipe down the equipment...
you just never know what's lurking there.

4. First thing you do you when you get home from work.
Give kisses to Baby & Papa Pancakes after I drop my bags of course. 
I have to change before I can give hugs and cuddles which is what we do right.

5. First car
It was an Altima but the first car I ever owned was Honda. 
 I have been a Honda girl since 2004.

6. First car accident / traffic violation
Mmhmm...I think it was two years ago when I started working downtown...
nothing but parking's ridiculous when you work downtown. 
My first car accident was totally NOT my fault. I was rear-ended.

7. First thing you wanted to be when you grew up
It was a Lawyer then I decided it may be easier to impact people
and change lives more effectively as a Social Worker.
Plus they always had the cutest outfits.
Lawyer, Paralegal or "Gap Year" Outfit Inspiration
8. First choice beverage
Water but once in a while I will get a craving for gingerale.
Since winter is coming...French Vanilla is a first choice.

9. First choice breakfast
Pancakes of course.  Eggs and Toast.
10. First choice dessert
Anything with chocolate.
11. First song that comes to mind
This Girl is On Fire by Alicia Keys...that song makes me happy!

12. First major purchase
My first car was definitely a major purchase.
Then it was my condo.
Then it was a trip to Europe for my entire family.
Ahhh....major purchases are fun!!!

13. First job
I worked at McD's in high school...I had a blast...
I killed the fries and McChicken sauce everyday...
(if you are know what McChicken sauce yummy but NOT healthy)

14. First time you flew on a plane
When I was probably 6 or 7...came to Canada for the first time from Ghana.
15. First real "big girl" job
I was thinking about this was after I graduated from College...
it was as a social worker and it felt weird being an early
20-something year old telling parents how to raise their children.
  I thought I knew it all!!!
16. First Kiss
Grade 8...
first kiss
17. First Big Vacation
It has to be my girl's trip to was the best trip ever with my girls.
Barcelona was fun too but Miami was the first big one.
18. First Name Brand Purchase
Italian leather purse...
I've had it for years and they are still in good shape!
19. First Memory
I was perhaps a toddler and I remember I had this toy carrot
and I remember myself playing with it. 
20. First Fav. TV Show
The Cosby Show...I lived for Thursday nights @ 8:00pm.
