Bucket list #42 have a pizza eating contest

Hello, my bucket list friends ! During my amazing sleepover weekend with my amazing awesome friend ,I crossed another item off my list . ( you can read about the other list item HERE ) Now without further delay here is the second item that I crossed off in 2019 !

 

Bucket list #42 have a pizza eating contest

My friend and I had gotten two pizzas for our sleepover we ate one Friday night and saved the next one for Saturday . I asked my friend if she wanted to have a pizza eating contest and because she is so awesome she said yes . We had cooked the pizza the night before and when we put in a container to go in the fridge we didn’t use a pizza cutter so the pieces were all uneven.  So it wasn’t a fair contest but we didn’t really care . I finished my piece first and won but it was smaller then my friend’s piece. I took a video of us having the contest and it is a pretty funny video at lest I think so . I might upload the video to You Tube soon but in the meantime take a look and some stills from the video.

Cheers to another list item being crossed off my bucket list !

Bucket list #204 put glow sticks in a pool and go swimming

Hello, my bucket list friends ! As you can see from the title of this post I crossed another item off my list ! This is my first item that I’ve crossed off in 2019. I’m so excited to tell all of you about it so let’s get to it .

 

Bucket list #204 put glow sticks in a pool and go swimming

This was one of those items that was going to to be a little tricky to cross off because I don’t usually have access to a swimming pool and when I do it’s usually a public pool or a hotel pool and I wouldn’t be aloud to cross this item off there but I got the chance when my awesome and amazing friend was house sitting at a place with a pool .  Earlier this week, I bought a bunch of glow sticks at the Dollar Tree so I was prepared. When Friday finally came, my friend picked me up from work and we went to the store to get some sleepover food . After spending sometime snacking and relaxing  it was time to put the glow sticks in the pool . The glow sticks looked really awesome in the pool. It was a bright rainbow of color in the water and so beautiful to look at .  It was dark and pretty cold out and the pool was not heated so my friend stayed out of the pool and took pictures for me . While crazy me went into the very cold swimming pool . It was so cold but I’ve been in need for an adventure so I pushed myself to go into the pool . I went under the water and I grabbed to glow sticks. I held them up so proud of myself ! Due it is being so cold I did not spend much time in the pool but going under the water and grabbing the glow sticks was enough in accomplish my goal and give me a great memory to look back on . The next day I had to get all the glow sticks out of the pool and that was easier said then done but with the help of my friend and a net ,the pool was glow stick free before it got to late . I’m really happy I crossed this item of the list and I had a fun sleepover with my friend . What more could I ask for ?

Stuck in the bucket list rut

Hello, my bucket list friends ! I just recently wrote about about living the bucket list life everyday ( you can read it here )  but to be honest I’m stuck in a rut right now I haven’t crossed any thing new off my list since November ! It’s really bothering me . So what’s a bucket lister to do in times like this ? Make plans to cross off more items of course ! I tried to cross one off on a whim but that didn’t work out, so it’s time to make plans to get more items crossed off . I took the plunge and signed up for a 10k in April. I also have plans to cross an item that involves a swimming pool, It really helps to review your list there might some items you forgot about . It reminded me that I needed to keep working on my wreck this journal so I can finish it and get it crossed off the list . My plans for future list items bring a smile to my face. I can’t wait to cross off another list item and tell you all about it !

Hello , my bucket list friends ! I’ve enjoyed writing posts about my shopping hauls and after a pretty awesome Good Will haul today I deiced to do another shopping post . Here we go .

 

Good Will shopping trip 1/12/2019

My friend and I went on a somewhat spontaneous shopping trip to the Good Will but first we got some coffee then we were good to go !  It was a Saturday so it was very busy and it took awhile to find to get shopping cart. By the time we did get a cart we both had already picked out some books and I had found a cute Lion King plush toy with the original Disney Store tags . I also found a Disney Princess picture frame . After we got a cart we moved on to the clothes where we found some great things that we were excited to wear ! It was a successful shopping trip and we had a fun time together . I love shopping at the Good Will and I’m excited to see what I find next time .

My essential oil diffuser !

Hello, my bucket list friends ! I’m happy to say that I’ve already been making some progress with some of new years goals ( you can read them here ) including finally setting up my essential oil diffuser ! I’m excited to tell you about it , here we go !

 

My essential oil diffuser !

 

I got my essential oil diffuser from Amazon. There are many different styles to choose from with a pretty wide range of prices . The one I chose is cone shaped and it changes colors . It has been sitting in my room for a while but today I finally got it set up. I’ve mentioned before how much I love lavender ( you can read about it HERE) so of course that was the first oil that I put in my diffuser . As soon as I turned the diffuser on it began to fill my room with a wonderful relaxing  lavender scent . I also loved the changing colors it was a fun touch . Before long my room was a lavender paradise ! I’m excited to try other oils in my diffuser as well .  I’m also excited to use this diffuser more and more to help me relax .

Living the bucket list life

Hello, My bucket list friends ! When posting on social media I sometimes use the hashtag bucket list life but what does that really mean ? I thought it would be a good idea to take a further look at this and also to give all of you some suggestions on how to live the bucket list life on a average day .

 

Living the bucket list life

 

To me Living the bucket life life is more then just crossing items off your bucket list, It is an attitude or maybe even a life style . To me a bucket list is not just a list of things to do in your lifetime. It’s the idea that life is really meant to be lived to the fullest .Let’s face it all to often our lives become a retinue of the same things over and over again. We get stressed and grumpy and we often forget to take time to do the things that we really enjoy, the things that make us smile and help us to truly love life . So how do you live the bucket list life ? Simply put you take time for you and the people and things you love . It’s about trying to mix up your routine to keep life exciting ! Yes, I’ll be honest some days are not that great and that’s OK. Living the bucket list life is not a solution to all of life’s problems but it is a way to make life a little happier .  Below I’ve listed a few ways on how to live the bucket list life !

Try something new – Instead of getting the same thing for lunch try something new or wear clothes that you haven’t worn in a while mixing things up just a little bit will add a little bit of excitement to your day .

Do at least one thing you love everyday – It could be something as simple as watching a show you like or listening to your favorite playlist or setting some time aside for a hobby you enjoy like drawing or dancing . Taking time to do something you love will add a little boost of happiness to your day .

Day Dream – OK, I know it sounds a little silly but seriously instead of repeating your to-do list or thinking about all the bills you have to pay have a little fun with your thoughts ! Think about what you want to cross off your list next , your favorite memories , the best vacation you’ve even been on , or the trip you want to take next . Taking some time for positive thoughts will help to put you in a positive mood even if your not crossing an item off your list that day .

 

I hope you enjoyed reading my tips for living the bucket list life ! Have fun crossing off items everyone !
