We Want to Know Wednesday: Brands and Jobs

Love linking up with Kenzie and Sciptor for We Want To Know Wednesday.  Here are this week's questions.

1. Are you brand loyal?  Yes and no, there are some things with food that I do prefer a certain brand, but really overall I am more than happy buying store brand to save some money.  I am definitely very loyal to Apple and Canon though.  Won't find a PC or Nikon in this house.

2. Tell us about your first job?  My very first job was as a newspaper girl; I delivered the papers to about 40 houses on my street.  During the week it was an afternoon paper, so right after school. Saturday and Sunday were morning papers.  The Sunday paper around Christmas was always so horribly fat with ads I could usually only fit about 8 in my bag.  I would have to carry two bags and wobble down the street; then come back load up again and deliver the rest.  My street didn't have sidewalks and everyone had big front yards so riding a bike wasn't really an option.  I was the best paper girl and if it even looked like rain I would bag the papers and put them in everyone's screen doors.  

3. Do you have any tattoos?  Nope and never will- though I have some pretty awesome scars (thanks to open heart surgery)
The top of my scar- goes down to a few inches over my belly button
4. How long do you spend on your appearance each day?  If I averaged the week out it would probably be about 20 minutes.  Most days I spend about 5 minutes doing quick makeup and running a brush through my hair.  On Sundays or when I am feeling ambitious I curl my hair, and spend a little more time on makeup so about a hour.  
5. What is one thing you have to do before leaving your house each day?  I initially thought getting dressed, but that isn't true as I have had had many school drop-offs in my pajamas (and we know I have a pajama history)... so probably putting my contacts in, otherwise it would not be a good idea to let me drive.


Would love to hear, what was your first job?

  1. My first job was at a clothing store in the mall (and I was older than the store manager - I was 19.) That's so cool you were a newspaper girl! I started in the newspaper business in the customer service department, so I worked closely with newspaper carriers. :)

    1. That would be weird to be older than the manager. It was fun being a newspaper girl, was for almost two years until they switched to morning/driving routes, then I was done

  2. I didn't even think about that but yeah, I will only buy Canon cameras. But I am staunchly against Apple; no offense. :)

    1. I didn’t think of it at first either as I always think of food when I hear this question at first.

  4. I am brand loyal too :) My husband LOVES Canon cameras (has the same one) and is pretty picky about having Canon lenses as well.

    First job? Grocery store cashier. LOVED IT.

    1. I have always had a fascination with cash registers so I think I might have liked that job. Canon is definitely great :)

  5. First job was technically working on the family farm, but the first job I had to interview for was a receptionist in the radiology department at a local hospital.

    1. Yea, I didn't have to apply to be the newspaper girl as my each of my brothers had been at one point, it just passed down to me when my older brother got too busy with school and sports and was old enough to get a real job. First job I had to apply for was a hostess at a restaurant.

  6. I am putting in my contacts practically before my feet hit the floor!

    1. There are some mornings if I am not going anywhere that I don’t put them in right away- but it soon is driving me crazy not being able to see and I put them in

  7. If we aren't counting working around the farm (hauling hay, driving the truck/trailer/tractor.....) a waitress. I lived in the country so paper girl wasn't an option :)

    1. Yes, the houses would be a bit far for you to deliver too :)

  8. I'm a Canon girl, too!

    First job - I lined soccer games for the city's little league program. Age 9! (We were taught work ethic early!)

  9. My first job was tutoring math when I was in HS. I guess I was just a nerd. My first "real" job was waitress-ing when I was in college. I will never take going out to a restaurant for granted again.

    1. Yes, that definitely would help you gain a new respect for waitresses. I didn’t waitress but was a hostess so heard from the waitresses all the stuff they had to deal with

  10. My first job was cleaning horse stalls, it was how I paid for my second horse. It definitely was hard work! I had to clean every day before school, about 20 or so stalls depending on how many I was able to get done. My dad used to have a paper route and I would always help him out :)

    1. Oh that would be hard work, but so awesome you were able to save and buy your first horse!

  11. I love that picture of you! You're beautiful!!! {Even if you don't spend an hour on hair and makeup...}

    My first job was picking moldy strawberries out of flats of good ones. To this day I still can't eat a strawberry. :o)

    1. Awe thank you! This was on a Sunday one of the days I do actually spend time on my hair :) Yea, that job might turn me off from strawberries too!
