First Loves Blogfest!!!

(Make sure you check out THIS PAGE for an AWESOME GIVEAWAY I've got happening right now :D  )

This is a blogfest by the AWESOME Alex J Cavanaugh.

How fitting that my first blogfest is a 'firsts' :)

I'm supposed to talk about my first loves: Song/Band, Book, Movie, and Person. This is exciting...


I almost did song, but I loved a variety of songs, so I went with band.


Now, I've loved Aerosmith since I was very, very little. My dad would play their tapes all the time. Funny thing is that my favorite song of theirs was never one of his tops. Here's a video of my first song I absolutely loved by Aerosmith and really, I have no idea why I loved (and still do) this song so much, but ah well.

Of course, after Janie's Got A Gun-Cryin', Crazy, and Dude Looks Like A Lady are some of my other favorites. But in general, Aerosmith had/have some of my top favorite songs. Which is why they're my first band I loved.


There is a tie between three for this one:

A Nightmare On Elm Street



Disney's Fantasia
(The original, not Fantasia 2000)

I mentioned it in a past post, but anyone who didn't see, I watched my first horror film (A Nightmare On Elm Street) when I was 2 with my dad (yeah, dad put me up on some great stuff, lol). I know it's funny to have Freddy and a scary ass clown in the mix with a Disney movie, but what can I say, I'm very versatile :)


Little Women by Louisa May Alcott

I've always been a reader. My mom taught me to read as soon as I could talk and I've been reading ever since. While I had many favorites, Little Women is one that I read a many times and loved it every time.


I met my first love when I was 13. We dated and were broke up by the time I was almost 16. Over the time between then and now, I've talked to him (even sparked a teeny bit of a relationship again sometimes), and over all the time (even though I've been with and loved others) he still has my heart. It's sad really, but it's true. He's the first person I truly gave my whole heart to and he's the only one who has ever had it. He could call me up right now and it'd be like he was never gone.

And that's it. I linked to the list when I linked to Alex's name, so check it out.

Thanks Alex for the blogfest and thanks to anyone who is stopping by :)

Are you participating in the fest? If not, what are your first loves? Did you have a good weekend? Have you entered my giveaway? If you haven't checked it out yet, do it. I've got some awesome prizes up for grabs. 

Happy Monday :)

Love Aerosmith!! Your movies made me smile - too funny! :)

Your three way tie for movies made me laugh. It reminded me of my sister.

I love Aerosmith!

Kela McClelland said...

Jemi- Yeah, The Sound Of Music tried to jump in there too, but I decided that, while it's a fav it's not number one. Thanks for stopping by :)

Jeremy- I almost said me too, but duh, so I'll just say yay because they're awesome. Thank you for coming by :)

Danielle B. said...

Aerosmith - Yay! S. Tyler *drool*

You go from horror novels to Fantasia? Nice!

The Nightmare movies were fun. I have yet to see It. I'll put it in my Netflix Que.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

You're the second person to select Nightmare on Elm Street, so it can't be too odd of a choice.
Thanks for participating in my blogfest!

Kela McClelland said...

Danielle-I second that *drool* lol, and yep I've always liked variety. Thanks for stopping by :)

Stephen- IT still scares me, of course, I hate clowns in general-even if they're all cute or whatever, don't like them. I can't believe you've never seen It, totally should. Thank you for stopping by :)

Alex-But did they group it with a Disney movie? Lol, I don't think it's odd to be a favorite. I have every single Freddy movie, and I can't even begin to count the number of times I've seen each one. Thanks for having the blogfest :)

Paula Martin said...

i alwasy loved 'Little Women' - one of my favourites, and Fantasia is wonderful.

Nancy Thompson said...

I loved Janie's Got a Gun. Been years since I heard it though. I did just Watch A nightmare on Elm Street last weekend. I share the same name as the main character and her boyfriend, Glen, was played my Johnny Depp. I always thought that meant I could claim Johnny as my first ever boyfriend. Silly, I know.

Great Posting on the First Loves. Enjoyed reading your story.

Christine Rains said...

Aerosmith is fantastic. Great horror movie picks too! I still am a big Stephen King fan, and I was insanely crazy about the Nightmare on Elm Street series when I was a teen.

Andrea Teagan said...

Horror movies, alright! I actually remember watching a lot of horror movies when I was a kid. I think that explains a lot of things. Lol.


Marta Szemik said...

I felt my heart go pitter patter when I read about your first love:)

Little Women is still one of my all time favorite books. I always loved Jo - a tomboy writer. Excellent. Great taste!

Cassie Mae said...

What a cute love story. I am rooting for the boy to give you a call and rekindle the flame :)

Kela McClelland said...

Paula-Yes Fantasia is wonderful. Thanks for stopping by :)

Nancy-Lol, yes Johnny Depp...sigh. It didn't even occur to me that my favorite has him in it. Fitting though since most of his movies are up high on my list of favorites. :)

Jeremy- Thanks :)

Christine-I agree :p I'm a huge Stephen King fan as well. :D
