Le Creuset: Which to get- round or oval, 5 qt or higher?

So, I'm getting my first Le Creuset pot and I couldn't be happier. But, I am not sure which one to purchase (let alone the color-Red or WS Green?). In your experience/opinion is oval or round better? I am leaning towards round but...How about the size? 5 qt, 5.5 qt or higher? I'd like to hear your thoughts. Also, what was the first thing you made when you bought/were given your Le Creuset? Thank you for your help! :-)
