Helene in Between

Thanks to Helene and Sarah for hosting this awesome link-up!  I love that they are incorporating a hashtag so that everyone (non-bloggers) can participate.  That’s right; you too, can participate in this link up using #firstsTOTALSOCIAL on your blog, Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram!  This month’s prompt: Your First Time.  Let’s keep it clean ladies! ;-)

I thought I’d find a few firsts:

The first photo on my phones camera gallery…

My first Instagram photo (I know, pretty sweet shot right…)

My first blog post.

My first EVER Facebook post on November 7, 2006 back when you had to have a college email
address in order to join…

The first bald dude I ever dated (and the last)

The first friend I had (met the first day of kindergarten and we married brothers!)

The first hashtag I ever used… #pugs of course

Join us!

  9. I first have to start off with... How random is it that I 'meet' another Illinois blogger through a link up hosted by two Texas girls?!?! I get a little giddy when I find other gals from Illinois, heck even others from the Midwest! Anyhow, I vaguely remember the facebook that was only for college kids... Oh how things have changed! And Frank is a cutie! I love the little snorts that pugs make.

  10. I love your first insta caption... "Baldy!" And in 109 weeks, how come they still haven't allowed instagram users to edit their autocorrects?!?!?!

  11. Ah, those first IG photos. So fun to look back at, aren't they?
