Happy anniversary to just a bucket list dream

Hello bucket list friends! This is a very special post because today is the one year anniversary of my first blog post. I can’t believe that it has already been a year since I started Just a bucket list dream. Time has flown by so fast and I’ve crossed a lot of items off my bucket list in that time but I still have a long way to go until all my items are crossed off.  I can’t wait to continue to share my bucket list adventures and more with all of you. I plan to celebrate the anniversary of this blog every year. There is a tradition that certain kinds of gifts are to be given each year to celebrate an anniversary. The gift for a one year anniversary is paper, so I bought myself some paper crowns and I had a blast decorating one to celebrate my anniversary of writing this blog. I can’t wait to see what I cross off my bucket list next. Thanks for reading!

The color run !

Hello my bucket list friends! I did something really awesome today.  I did the color run 5k! I’m trying my best to get ready for #167 (complete the Disneyland half marathon) I’m really happy to have completed another 5k and I hope to do a 10k before the Disneyland half marathon

The color run May 28, 2016

The color run is one of the most well-known 5ks , I had seen pictures of it and it looked like a lot of fun so I signed up. I was planning on trying to beat my time from my last 5k but it was so hot that I decided to walk most of the way.  My mom and I had a pretty good time at this race even with the heat. It was a lot of fun getting covered in colored powder! There were also huge beach balls one even got brought on to the race course. Overall it was a fun and happy time.  I would do this race again!

Bucket List updates !!

Hello my bucket list friends! This year is flying by so fast but it has been a slow year for my bucket list because I have been busy working on long term bucket list items as well as settling in to my new awesome job! I got a job at a preschool as the 3 year old teacher, I was working at another preschool before but this one is closer to my house and is a better fit for me. Anyways I thought that it would be a good time to give you updates on past list items as well as the ones I’m still working on. So let’s jump on in!
