Memory Lane Blogfest!

The Memory Lane Blogfest was too fun to pass up.  Even if this is the first you're hearing about it, the questions are super easy so go sign up now!

Post your answers to these questions:

When did you start your blog? My first post was October 27, 2010

What is first denomination (price) of postage stamp you remember?   Oddly enough, 29 cents.  I looked it up, and I would have been 13 or 14 at the time, though I have no idea why I would have been taking notice of postage stamps!

How old were you when you learned to ride a bike?   Yikes, on the old side.  I think 9 or 10.

What was the first concert you attended without parental supervision?   I want to say Elton John with my husband.  I've also seen Aerosmith, Chicago, and my first concert was Debbie Gibson, but those were all attended with parent-types.

How old were you when you got your first kiss?  Around the same age I started taking notice of postage stamps, apparently.

What is your earliest memory?  Sitting on a couch with my mom, watching two men carry a piece of furniture up the stairs to our apartment.  Touching the iron and burning my finger is my next earliest- not so fond of that one.  I still have flashbacks every time I iron one of my husband's shirts.


  1. I was on the old side too--10 to be exact. That's when I got my brand new pink Huffy. Man, I hated that it was pink. lol
    Debbie Gibson, huh? Yep, she was hot stuff when I was growing up. And Tiffany. Remember her?

    Nice to meet you. :)

  2. I bust up laughing at when you got your first kiss "Around the same age I started taking notice of postage stamps, apparently." HILARIOUS!

  3. I think the postage stamp question is kind of generation-separator, isn't it? I remember having genuine pen-pals and lots of them in the pre-email days.

  4. Wow, your music totally took me back. Too fun.

  5. Okay, that iron-burn memory is a KILLER. DO you mean to tell me that my daughter will remember me accidentally grabbing my sizzling hot curling iron at 3 years old and burning her hand? Niiiice. I was hoping we could ALL forget that fiasco. LOL

    Great post! I signed up, too!

  6. Debbie Gibson!? I would have loved to have gone to her concert.

  7. oooh! ouch!!! at least the couch one predates it so your first memory isn't a bad one! :)

  8. I hate irons. And I badly wanted to go to a Debbie Gibson contest in my middle school years.

  9. A laugh with my first coffee -- I love that.
    Sorry I'm late.
