I recently lost over 100 pounds so I have been doing a lot of 1st time things. Last week I bought myself a kayak and have been to a nearby lake with it three times so far. It's a lot of fun and the rowing is a great workout for my upper body. I also did a 5k for the first time last month.

Most recent was just tonight, when I made peach cobbler from scratch, YUM! And I also made an alfredo sauce (instead of using jarred) for the first time ever from scratch, while making a brand-new recipe (and also my first ever Pioneer Woman recipe, though I didn't even realize it was hers when I was making it.) That didn't turn out like it should have, but was still good enough.
Tonight I also watched my first grandson watch fireworks for the first time.
Last month I parasailed for the first time.
Next week I will travel with just my dad for the first time.
