Pajamas & Pets - First Things First edition

Hello there my lovelies! Here comes my second post of the day (which is kind of unheard of around here), but it's to welcome you back for week three of our First Things First link up series with myself, and Hallie from Life: Oceanside! We've loved reading y'all's posts over the last couple of weeks, and we're looking forward to reading more about this round of topics as well! So this week is: First cell phone, First thing I do when I get home from work, and first pet! 

First cell phone:
So guys - I've racked my brain for information about my first cell phone, and I can't for the life of me figure out what it was! I remember how it looked and everything, but I have no idea what kind it was. I've tried to Google a couple of things I thought might be helpful, but couldn't come up with anything still. It was black, and kinda chunky, and it was technically a flip phone. I say "technically" because the flip part was just a thin piece that flipped up and down to cover the keypad. Fancy right?

I do remember though, I was in 8th grade, and I got my Mama's old hand-me-down phone. She put 60 minutes of talk-time on that bad boy, and I had to prove I could be responsible with the phone itself, and the amount of minutes I had. And those 60 minutes lasted me like two or three months. Bam. I was totally responsible. So then I got put on a real plan, and could use it a little more often! It didn't text or have any games or anything, but it did make me feel a bit like one of the cool kids back then. 

First thing I do when I get home from work: 
Definitely change into some comfy clothes. Sometimes it's the occasional jeans and a t-shirt look to actually go do something, but usually it's just some pajama's or "work out" pants. (Those pants are totally multifunctional ) Either way, I'm gettin' comfy people. I wear a dress to work everyday, and heels pretty often, so once 5 o'clock rolls around, I'm usually more than ready to just wear something a bit more comfy. So that's definitely the first thing I do when I get home from work or a work out!

L: Onsie from college and the source of many pranks/jokes. R: Christmas night 2010 - me & sis in new PJ's! :)

First pet:
Here's a weird story - I have some very vivid memory of owning a bunny when I was younger. A little floppy-eared thing that had a cage under the front window in the living room, who would hop around the house while I played with him. Funny thing about this story - apparently it never happened. My Mama says we never owned a bunny. But I seriously have this "memory" in my head of a pet I apparently never owned...

My very first pet however, was probably a stray cat my dad brought home one time. But he was the only one who liked cats, so it didn't last long. I would consider my first to be our Golden Retriever, Chief. He was the best dog, and we loved him so so much. We had a huge backyard for him to run around in, and we loved to go outside and play with him. I think this was around when I was probably 9 and my sister was 6. We loved that dog so much, and to this day, when my sister sees a Golden, she gets a little nostalgic for our old Chief. And she definitely wants to own one again sometime in her life :)

Thank you for blogging!!! I love reading your blog :) You inspire me to blog one day myself :) I do journal every night, but still not ready to venture to the blog world :) because I don't have a blog myself I don't get to pariicipate in your 1st things 1st :( So I thought I would just leave it in a message?
1st cell phone: now I am from the area where my phone REALLY was one of the 1st phones lol only came in black very large and only used for emergency :) the bottom where you speak into flipped out-that was it!
1st thing I do when I get home: EASY I change my clothes into something really comfortable! The only way to go :)
1st pet: our family pet was a dog, this dog was ONLY an outside dog-I lived in california so it could stay out all the time, on RARE day my dad might bring the dog in, but it had to only stay at the foot of the chair that my dad sat in. When I think of how my dog runs my life now! oh my :0
Thanks for reading (if you did)

When I answered the first thing I do when I get home question I went for literally. But I much like you always change into something comfy. What I listed is what I need to do in order to change lol.
