My top 5 Netflix Original series

Hello, my bucket list friends ! Like a lot of people I love watching Netflix ! Netflix is pretty good when comes to making its own orignal content . I thought it would be fun to share with you my top five favorite Netflix original series but before we get into my top five list here are my honorable mentions .

1, Alexa and Katie – The reason that is show is not on my top five is because I have only watched a few episodes  but I would already recommend watching this story of friendship, strength , and hope .  This series follows teenagers Alexa and Katie as they prepare to take on the world of high school . Things are a bit complicated for the two best friends because Alexa has been battling cancer and Katie is one of the few people who know it .

 

2. Shot in the Dark – This show focuses on two things that I love , journalism and the city of LA. This series follows journalists as they work to capture footage to sell to news stations . This a very exciting show that keeps you wondering what is going to happen next  .

3. Last Chance U – Some of you may know that I love to see people working towards their dreams and this show really captures that . The series focuses on a football team at a community college. The players struggle with a wide range of issues as they hope to be drafted by high-ranking college teams .

4, Girls incarcerated ( young and locked up ) –  This documentary series take us to jail a place that no teen girl wants to be.  This series is an eye-opening emotional roller coaster ride into the lives of some teen girls struggling with a wide verity of problems . It is a wild ride as you cheer them on through their ups and downs and some even return back home .

 

Ok now let’s get to the list and we are going to go backwards !

5. Nailed It – This new series is great if you are looking to watch something that is fun and light-hearted . Yes, it is a baking show but it is a baking show were everyday people try to recreate professional cakes and other baked goods . It is a fun and simple show that would be perfect for families to watch together .

4.Fuller House –  One of America’s favorite sitcom families returns for a fun and laugh filled reboot of the classic show . With DJ. as a widow and a mom of three boys she is back in her childhood home along with Kimmy and Stephanie who have come to help her raise her three boys . Kimmy also brings her teen daughter with her . Creating a whole new generation of kids growing up in the house we all know and love . Now this show did take me longer to watch then  some others on this list so I wouldn’t recommend it for binge watching but it a fun family show with plenty of laughs to go around  .

3. Green house academy  –  This may look like a run of the mill teenage drama at first glance but it so much more than that ! It is a thrilling and exciting mystery as we watch two siblings struggle to adjust to a new boarding school and discover the truth of what really happened to their mother . This show that had me hooked quickly and kept surprising me with almost every episode . If you have time to binge watch this might be just the show you are looking for .

2. Free Rein – This show reminds me a lot of the saddle clubs show that I used to watch in my pre teen and early teen years .  It is must for horse lovers and mystery lovers alike . The show focuses on a young teen girl discovering her love for horses but she soon discovers that there is more than ridding lessons going on at the stable by her grandpa’s house . It can move slow at times but overall it is a wonderful story that is addicting once you get in to it . If you enjoyed the Saddle Club this is a show you should take a look at .

  1. Lost and Found music studios – This show is amazing and I really hope there is another season . This show focuses on a music studio for teens wh are exploring a career in the music industry . This show has a lot of focus on following your dreams . It is pretty fast paced and easy to watch . It has many different story lines to keep your attention and will have you cheering on the success of the lost and found kids!

4 Boxes of ponies !

Hello, my bucket list friends since my last blog post was a little on the heavy and emotional side I thought it would be a good idea to write something fun and light-hearted . This year I have won four boxes of my little pony toys from Ebay . I did talk about the first box I got in a blog post earlier this year. I also posted about the boxes on my social media accounts I have also posted 3 unboxing videos  on youtube so far but I will be posting the fourth one soon . Anyways hold on tight as I tell you about how much fun it has been opening four boxes of ponies !

 

 

4 boxes of ponies

As some of you may know I’m a big fan of my little pony . I Love collecting the toys and other merchandise as well as watching the show . Back in January I decided to start bidding on my little pony lots on Ebay. I found that there is a Goodwill that puts together lots of ponies and puts them up for auction on Ebay . I love shopping at the Goodwill and I have found some good my little pony stuff there so I started bidding on some of the my little pony lots that they had on Ebay . I won my first box in January and so far I have won 4 boxes . Some of the boxes are over 9 pounds ! That is a lot of ponies ! Now my room is filled with more ponies than ever before . Before I got the Ebay boxes I mainly had pony toys that were from the current generation of my little pony also known as G4  but now I have a lot of G3  and G3.5 ponies and they are pretty cool . With the fourth box I was able to get all  of the power ponies ! The boxes also had some Equestria girls girls dolls  I got lots of Twilight sparkle dolls and a Sunset shimmer doll along with many others . I also got what I call the snow globe style ponies they are clear pony toys filed with water and glitter shapes . I did not have any snow globe style ponies  before I got the boxes . One of my favorites box find is a pinkie pie toy that blows bubbles . I’ve had a lot of fun opening up the boxes. I also enjoy looking at all the new ponies that I have around my room . Getting four boxes of ponies is making my year just a little more fun !

My crazy heath problems

Hello, my bucket list friends As I’m sure you all know life is a crazy thing sometimes it’s crazy in a good way sometimes not so much . Right now I’m facing some problems and I know from experience that it is good to talk about both sides of life .  So here we go !

 

My Crazy health problems !

Ok ,bucket list friends I’m not sure how to explain all of this but I’ll do my best .  For as long as I can remember my hormones have been crazy  I always thought it was related to my OCD but now my hormone problems are getting worse.  I’m trying my best to  figure out everything . Since last Thursday I’ve been to the doctors three times . I’ve had a blood test and an Ultrasound . After my doctor goes over everything I should know more . For now What I know is that my Iron is very low and that is causing me to be very dizzy. I’ve been taking Iron to stop the dizziness  but I’ve still been getting dizzy and I get very tired . I have been taking a lot more naps then normal . All of this has caused me to miss work and that does not help me with all doctors bills . It is hard to stay positive in times like this and every little thing that happens like leaving your dad’s Disney World sweat shirt at the doctor’s office or sleeping wrong and waking up with a very painful neck seems to add a whole new layer of stress on to what you already have. The best advice that I give to myself and others that are going through times like this is look backward and forward . I know that may sound a little strange but stay with me . first look back on all the good times that you’ve had and all the blessing you have received now look forward  to all the good things ahead . Think about your dreams and your plans for the future . Focusing on all the good things that have happened and the good things that will happen can be just the dose of positivity that you need . I have faith that I’ll be feeling feeling better soon and I can’t wait for my next adventure .

The great Monterey adventure March 2018

Hello , my bucket list friend and happy March ! There are many things that I love about my life and having wonderful friends is defiantly one of them. For the first weekend in March I got to spend a  fun-filled weekend in Monterey with my cousin Amanda and our friend Tamara. We had a great time and I can’t wait to tell you all about it  so let’s go !

 

Monterey March 2018

The day of our trip to Monterey started off with a stop for food then another stop to get our nails done . I had never been to the nail place that we went to but they did a wonderful job . I love my green sparkly nails and my cousin got nail polish that changes colors ! After getting our nails done we were on our way . When we got to Monterey our first stop was the Monterey bay aquarium . I had to been to the aquarium before but it had been a long time . The aquarium is really big and we all had a fun time exploring and looking at every thing from jellyfish to penguins . We also got to watch a diver feed some of the fish . After exploring and shopping at the aquarium we checked in to our hotel that was right along the beach ! After we took sometime to rest at the hotel we went out to eat and we all enjoyed some really good food and dessert . After eating and walking around we came back to the hotel. I’m sad to say that  I was not feeling very well so I stayed and rested while Amanda and Tamara went swimming . The next day started out with a short walk down to the beach . It was a beautiful sunny morning and the beach was fantastic, We all had a great time walking and running along the beach. After our adventure to the beach we went to breakfast at the black bear diner . I had never been to there before but after one visit I highly recommend it ! After checking out of the hotel we did a lot of exploring and some shopping around Monterey before having a very yummy dinner and heading back home . It was a very fun weekend and a wonderful way to celebrate Tamara’s birthday ! I hope you all have a great March ! Rock on – Christina Epperly
