First Loves Blogfest

Today is Alex Cavanaugh's First Loves Blogfest. We are to post our first loves – first movie, first song/band, first book, and first person. Four loves, one blogfest! Don't forget to follow the link and check out the other participants.

So here we go.

First movie I can remember loving?

The Goonies
What's not to love? A bunch of misfits trying to save their homes, pirates, booby traps, One Eyed Willie, and the Truffle Shuffle!

Great lines:
Goonies never say die.

"...booty traps." "You mean booby traps?" "Yeah, that's what I said, booby traps."

First Song/Band
This is a bit more telling on my age, but my first love here is Chicago.

First Book
I have to go with Anne of Green Gables. I relate to Anne on so many levels. Just ask anyone who knows or has met me and they can tell you that I talk constantly. If I try really hard, I can shut my mouth, but blabbering is an art with me.

There is this deep seated need in my to have people like me, and I take things very personally when they don't. And when my temper flairs, you'd swear I was a carrot top like Anne.

First Love
My first love might have been Gilbert Blythe. But my mother tells a story of catching me kissing a boy named Shawn outside my dad's Chiropractic office when I was in Kindergarten. I don't remember this, but there you go.

There were lots of crushes throughout my years, but I got lucky enough to marry and hold onto my first REAL love.

Still my favorite photo

A bit older, rounder, but still happy to be together.

    1. Yes, go watch it now! I think I will too. :)

  2. love your picsks! sean astin (right?) evolved in popular roles, didnt he?

    and sweet pics of hub & you!

  3. Great pictures of you and the hubby. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Aw, Anne of Green Gables :-) I had that on casette tape when I was little and listened to it a LOT!

  5. He would probably say he was lucky enough to get you! And if I'd selected a favorite song I'd show even more age than you.
    Thanks for participating in my blogfest!

  6. Anne of Green Gables is one of my favs.

  8. I am going to have that Chicago song stuck in my head all day long now. Thanks! :D

  9. I'm a bit embarrassed to say I've never read Anne of Green Gables--though I've heard of the books, of course. I'll have to try reading them sometime.

  10. Ohhh Gilbert Blythe I had a crush on him too

  11. Nice answers Charity :) I love that early pic of your hubby, what a spunk! hehe

    I don't remember ever watching the Goonies, which is weird...

  12. Real love is the best isn't it? :) It was a lot of fun to read about your first loves! I think Goonies is awesome.


  13. Oh My Gosh!!! Your first son looks just like your hubby!

  14. A fellow lover of the Goonies here! I think my first book that I really remember loving would be The Never-Ending Story. I can remember feeling so proud because the librarian said she wouldn't normally lend it to someone my age, but she'd make an exception for me. :-)

  15. I loved your picture - you look so good together, no wonder - you are very lucky!
    I haven't read Anne, but watched all of it on TV - Megan Follows is *the* only Anne for me! :) <3
