Well, since I only went to one Prom my senior year of high school, my ONLY prom date was a guy I had been dating named Shannon Sackett.

2. First Love
A guy named Steve Champion, when I was in like 5th or 6th grade. He was also my first kiss, on the cheek, in 6th grade

I worked at the local pool concession stand for the summer when I was 14 or 15.

5. First car
Beige mercury capri. Don't remember the year off hand though.

6. First person to text me today
no one. Since I only learned to text this past summer and it was only to one person, and she got rid of her cell, I don't text anyone now. But at least I know how:))

7. First person I thought of this morning
That would have to be my daughter Nicole, since she was sleeping next to me , and her feet were on my side of the bed.

8. My first grade teacher
Don't remember her name. I remember my 2nd grade teacher though, Ms. O'Connor. She was mean.

9. First Ride on an airplane
That would have to be when I was 6 or 7, when my Uncle David was getting married in Arlington Texas, and we flew down here from Chicago, Il. My cousin Julie and I were flower girls.

10. My first best friend and do I still talk to them
I had alot of friends growing up, but my true best friend I met in Ms. Shores math class in 7th grade. Her name is Nikki Molder, and yes I'm still friends with her, 20+ years later. She lives about 8 hrs from me so I don't get to see her alot anymore,but thank God for email and the telephone.

11. First Sport played
I was never very athletic. Didn't belong on any teams. But I did ice skate when I was in Chicago. That and roller skating till I was in 7th grade, then I was on the volleyball team for my junior high school.

12. First Sleep Over
Don't remember first sleep over at friends house but I know the first time I stayed away from home was at my aunt Donna's house and they had to take me home in the middle of the night because I wouldn't stop crying.

15. First thing I did this morning

16. First Concert I went to
I think it was the Cinderella/Judas Priest Concert in high school with my then boyfriend Shannon. It wasnt' fun though. I wanted to see Cinderella, but he said that was only the opening act and the real concert was Judas Priest and I didn't like them.

17. First Tattoo or piercing
I have my ears pierced twice. Nothing else. Kind of want a tattoo but am still wrestling with that idea.

18. First foreign country I've been to
Have never really been to France, Italy,Spain or Ireland. I want to go there. I did go on a cruise to the Bahamas when I was 17 , with my parents. It was a blast.

19. First run in with the law
When I was in highschool. We used to "cruise" Cooper street on Fridays and Saturday nights. long story short I called my parents just before I was supposed to be home and told them my car wouldn't start and that my friend Brian was there and he would stay with me till it ran again. I took off with him and several other friends. what my dad had said was "stay there till I get there and I'll look at your car" I said ok and left with out hearing what he had said. I showed back up about 30 minutes later with my dad and a cop sitting on my car.. Scared the bejeebies out of me. I got in alot of trouble

20. First detention
Never got detention in school. I was a good girl:)))

21. First State I lived in
Illinois. Moved to Texas in 1979

22. First person to break my heart
I'd have to say I truly was hurt when I broke up with my high school boyfriend. Found out I didn't know him as well as I thought, and it hurt a lot.

23. First roommate
My best friend Nikki

24. First Limo Ride
When I was 17, at my Grandmother Lela's funeral in Chicago.
