Things I love – January 2019

Hello, my bucket list friends ! Back in November I did a post called products I love right now (you can read it here ) I enjoyed writing the post and I have seen many other bloggers do similar posts each month . I decided it would be fun starting this year to share the things that I’m loving each month . It could be anything from a certain TV show to a new brand of lip gloss . Before we begin I want to give a big shout out to the other bloggers that do posts like this one , you guys are great inspiration .Now lets get to it

 

Things I love – January 2019

Burt’s Bees facial cleansing towelettes with peach and willow bark -I love Burt’s Bees ! I have some other products from them. These towelettes smell so sweet and help me to wake up. I recommend them for sure !

Trader Joe’s peppermint green tea –  I’ve gotten in drinking tea a lot more lately and when I saw this at the store I just had to get it . It’s a great and interesting blend of green tea and peppermint flavor .

Audible- I really enjoy reading but I get so busy it’s hard to make time for it . Now that I have Audible I can listen to books and get things done at the same time. There are many great books to choose from including a book about Alice Cooper read by Alice himself ! I love listening to him even when he’s reading . Of course there are other books I have downloaded as well . I recommend this app to anyone who loves to read but doesn’t have the time.

The Book of me – I got this book for Christmas and it is so much fun to fill out . It’s a do it yourself biography . It is filled with tons of questions that will take you down memory lane. It is great activity to do in your spare time.

The Masked Singer – This show is so much fun to watch ! Basically there are a bunch of celebrities wearing head to toe costumes that completely conceal their identities . After they sing the judges try to guess who they are . Each week on celebrity is voted off and their identity is revealed . It’s a great show to watch with family and friends . Try to see who can guess the most identities correctly.

Stash Chai tee – And here is another one of my favorite teas ! My friend gave this to me and I just love the flavor ! It is just the right amount of spice without being over powering

Hint Fizz water –  I’ve been drinking these for a long time but I feel most people mainly know about the regular Hint water the ones that are not carbonated. I love the flavors of hint but I love water more when it is fizzy so this is the perfect combination. The Hint fizz waters are a little harder to find then the normal ones but they are worth it !

A different kind of January

Hello, my bucket list friends ! Usually January is notorious for being a slow month that drags on . It always seems that way to me but this January flew by . It’s a weird feeling . We just had new year’s eve and now February is on it’s way. The stores are filled with Valentine’s day items and each day we get closer to welcoming February . Why did this January fly by so fast compared to the ones I’ve experienced in the past ? The answer is I’m not sure . I mean I did work a lot but I know I have done that in years past too . Maybe it was the weather we did have some really nice sunny days maybe that was the reason ? We had rain too so I just don’t know . I just know that it feels weird . I think I was excepting a more relaxing month but that just didn’t happen . I was busy , working hard and trying to keep my stress level down .  Now don’t get me wrong this month was not a waste I crossed two items off my bucket list ( you can read about them HERE and HERE ),had great times with family and friends and chowed down on some yummy food . It just feels weird that it’s over all ready . Oh well time to set all the weird feeling aside and look forward to February !

Here are some January pictures !

Say Hello to Kiwi !

Hello, my bucket list friends ! One of my favorite things to do is to write fun lighthearted blog posts .Yesterday when I got my fourth Beanie Boo I knew I had to write about about it so here we go !

 

 

Say Hello to Kiwi !

I got my new Beanie Boo friend at CVS . The CVS by my work has a cute little display of Beanie Boos. After taking a look at the Beanie Boos I could chose from , I decided to bring Kiwi home with me . Kiwi is just so cute she is mainly pink with some colorful spots allover her body . Her beak is also just so cute and I love her big purple eyes ! With her I now have four very cute Beanie Boos ! I’m excited to see which Beanie Boo I bring home next !

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 !

Rock on – Christina Epperly
