First Loves Blog Fest



Today is the First Loves Blog Fest! And I'm willing to share with everyone my first loves: first person, first movie, first book, and first band/singer.

And if you want to hop on the First Loves band wagon, just go here to sign on up and blog about your first loves.

My first true love: His name is Shelby. I chased him throughout our entire middle school days. All three years. Finally, in eighth grade at a school dance, he finally said he wanted to date me!! I thought he might have been humoring me that night just to shut me up, but alas come the next day at school he talked to me, carried my books, and walked me to most of my classes. The next year, however, he set his sights on the next girl and I walked away broken hearted. I'm glad now for it all happening.

My first love of a book:




My first love of a band: It was Duran Duran. Yup, I went gaga for those guys. I bought all the teen magazines and hung every picture I could get my hands on all over my bedroom wall. My fave song from them?
Here it is:



My first movie: Hands down, it was Footloose. And I still watch it to this day!!

  5. I still haven't read Gone With The Wind! And you'll probably not be impressed when you hear that I've only watched the new Footloose and not the old one!

  8. I recently watched Footloose and I was surprised by how good it was. Kevin Bacon gets the thumbs up for 80s awesomeness, though he's still second to Bowie :)

  13. When I hear Footloose I have to dance. Last time, it was in the gym where I work - luckily their were no customers because I star-jumped off the treadmill :-)

    And now the song's in my head.

    Dare I ask whether you watched the remake? (I didn't, by the way!)

  15. Duran Duran is awesome, I love that song too! Sorry to hear about the craziness of your first love. It is kinda fun looking back on those things though. Its easier to remember the good than the bad I think. :)

    1. Yeah. Now I look back and laugh. He was so funny at times. He said something stupid in a mall one day and nearly got his butt kicked by a group of guys. Lol that was hilarious because he really didn't say they sucked.

  16. Footloose was great! But then again, it had Kevin Bacon so it had to be great!

  21. Sorry I'm late! I had my hair done like John Taylor with the blonde streak swept across the front! Loved Andy Taylor with all my heart.

  22. Duran Duran is a great choice! :) I still haven't read Gone With the Wind - I think I've heard too much about it to want to pick it up :)

  23. I still watch Footloose, and hold it as one of my favorites, too. Also, being a total geek about it, I have the soundtrack in my car. Stuck in traffic? Bust out with Footloose!
