"First Time" Friday

Do you remember how you felt your FIRST TIME?  Were you nervous & scared?

I wanted to share. Let's do First Time Friday shall we? Oh kids, minds out of the gutter. I am NOT talking about THAT first time.  I'm talking about your very first time blogging.

I am hoping that some of you will play along and share your first blog post via comment.  Please leave a link to the very post that you have written, the date of the post, and a few of your thoughts.

I'll start:
XANGA - WHY I'M HERE Posted 10/6/2004 5:45 PM.  I was excited but nervous about what information I put out on the world wide web.  Once you put it out there - It's there. Forever.  I have since closed my first blog recently reactivated it and left only a handful of posts.  I am a little embarrassed by my first attempts but now I am a much more confident blogger.  It's now more about what I want to do, say, and share.  In the past it was more of a worry that will others like me? Will anyone read my blogs? How do I get better at it?  Then - BAM, I was addicted!  I stopped for a few years but have since returned to my beloved hobby.

Money Honey

Today I read an interesting article on Marital Finances. I was wondering how other "marrieds" felt about it. Here's my informal poll. Jump in with a comment if you have an opinion.

Check out the article and chime in:  Are Separate Bank Accounts Right for Your Marriage?

Personally, we fall into the Yours, Mine, and Ours category. It works out very well for us.

Happy Hubby, Happy Wife

It goes both ways. We all know that.

I stumbled upon something that hubby & buddies would enjoy:

Hooters has a special.  Buy 10 wings and get 10 free.

We love our hot wings - I prefer Wings N Things myself. Don't get me wrong, I'm not anti-Hooters Girls or anything. We actually went on a date to Hooters in Downtown San Diego once before we were married.  I just think that Wings N Things tastes better and we usually get it to go so that I can really get messy when I chow down.

The nitty gritty:
Valid at Participating Restaurants. Dine in Only. Offer available all day on April 24th. Wings served in increments of 10, additional charge for dressing.  They charge for the dressing?! I prefer ranch to bleu cheese dressing. How about you? 

Aww...too bad Honey - we already have plans for April 24th.

Whew...What a Weekend!

My Weekend Recap

Surprise 40th birthday party for my brother in law. It was a happy celebration. However, eating a veggie burger at a BBQ joint was a slight bummer.  We made up for it with ice cream cake.

I actually had time to clean my house.  I mean really clean, not just tidy up. First, I took my son out for a walk. I have to tell you all that I love my go-to, no-fail nap trick! It works every time. Bonus:  I get to have a great workout.  I "wear" him while I walk so I have a 20 lb "weighted" walk. We bond. He falls asleep. I get a great workout + fresh air + sunshine. Win-win.  After our walk I asked my husband to lie down beside him since he naps much longer that way. I wasn't too surprised to find that hubby ended up napping also.  I should have taken a photo.  As they napped I had a full 2 hours of uninterrupted cleaning time.Yay! The Shocker: I want to do more!

Church with my 2 guys.  We are there every Sunday but this was our son's first Palm Sunday Mass. To see him raise his palm frond along with the entire congregation was heartwarming.  He blew flying kisses to the people near us during the Rite of Peace - they couldn't help but come up to him.  He kept waving to them after. He is such a charmer. Just like his daddy. to a spa day with my 2 sister in laws (hubby's side). We had massages in the afternoon followed by lunch with the whole family.  While the mommies were "spa-ing" the daddies had all 6 boys!  No injuries.  Woo-hoo.  Imagine that:  6 (very active) boys with 3 dads in charge. 3 boys still in diapers...

Your turn! What did you all do this weekend?

More on Married Life (Not just my own)

I like finding posts about marriage.  I found this one through some Mommy Blogs that I follow.  Check out Heidi of Sacred and Profane and her über honest post:  If I'm Being Honest .

What do you all think about that?  Just curious on what your thoughts are.
