Hello, my bucket list friends I’m very excited to dive right into part 2 of my amazing Texas vacation ! ( you can read part one here ). Now on to part 2 !
Texas vacation part two
On Monday the rain was pouring down just like the weather report had said it would so it was a very good thing that we completed our outdoor activities the day before . The first activity for the day was the Perot museum of nature and science. The museum is a pretty good size with a lot to see and do . In addition to a variety of exciting and interesting exhibits there is also a 3D theater it requires a separate ticket . There were three movies to chose from there is one about dinosaurs , one about music history and the one we chose about oceans and underwater life . we had some time before our movie started so we started exploring the museum . There were some fun interactive exhibits I liked being able to drive a little robot and getting to crawl through a cave . There were also some amazing gems to look at but we had to take a break from the exhibits to go see the movie . I loved the Ocean movie it was so beautiful ! I loved seeing all kinds of sea animals in 3D ! After the movie we went to explore the rest of museum . I enjoyed the dinosaur and bird exhibits there was so much to see I recommend going to the Perot museum if you get the chance to .
After the museum we went to our next activity the George bush presidential library and museum. I really enjoyed this museum I find it interesting to learn about other people’s lives . It was awesome to get an in depth look of his presidency . One of my favorite parts of the museum was the decision room theater where you got a bunch of different information and had to make the best decision you could just like the president had to ! I also enjoyed the recreation of the Oval Office . This is another place I recommend going to if you are in the Dallas area . That’s part 2 of My Texas vacation !

Hello, my bucket list friends ! I just got back from a fun filled vacation to Texas ! There is so much to write about so I’m going to doing more than one post about my latest vacation . So let’s dive into part 1 !
Texas vacation part 1
On Saturday October 13th my mom and I flew out to Texas . It was quite an ordeal to get there because due to weather in Texas our flight got cancelled . We got on another flight but we had to go back downstairs to ticketing to get new boarding passes then back up through security again . It all worked out but we go to Dallas late so we didn’t have any time to do anything other than go to bed .
On Sunday , there was a break in the rain but according to the weather report that would be our only day to do outdoor activities . It was going to be tough but we were going to have to do the State Fair of Texas and the Dallas zoo in one day ! We started our day at the state Fair . It was kind of hard to find our way around but we managed to see and do a lot in the short time we had . We got to ride some fun rides including the sky way and the swing ride and I did the carousel of course . We got to see cows , goats , and horses and a few exhibits before it was time to leave . I bought a necklace as a souvenir and had some lemonade . After all our fair fun it was time to head to the zoo . When we got to the Dallas zoo we only had a few hours before it closed but we made the very most of it . It is a pretty good sized zoo. We saw penguins , elephants , a hippopotamus , flamingos and lots of other animals ! The aviary was fun to explore I loved seeing all the different kinds of birds there . There is a really nice gift shop where I got a new snow globe for my collection along with some other fun souvenirs. There was a carousel but because we were short on time I did not get the chance to ride it . Overall the state fair of Texas and the Dallas zoo are a lot of fun, I just wish we would have had more time to explore them. Even After all our fair and zoo fun we had one more activity to do before the rain came . That night we went to the reunion tower. I had fun time exploring the Geo deck and looking at the beautiful view of Dallas and yes they have a gift shop ! After all that exploration we were very tired and ready to called it a day !
That’s the end of part one ! Rock on Christina Epperly
Hello , My bucket list friends ! I wanted to share with all of you the progress that I made on my ” Fall bucket list ” I’m doing summer themed things during the fall to keep the happiness of summer going . ( You Can see it here ) Now, here is the progress I’ve made so far.
4 wear flip flops at least 10 different times
I love flip flops and the weather has been warm enough to wear them . It was to easy to rock some of my favorite shoes to cross this item off !
1 Go out for frozen yogurt or ice cream
I went to one of my favorite frozen yogurt places to cross off this one off .I topped my yogurt off with lots of fun candies !
6. color a summer themed coloring page
I love to draw and color so this item was very fun to cross off ! I found this super cute coloring page on the Crayola Website . I loved coloring this really fun summer picture .
That’s all of this time . Rock on – Christina Epperly
Hello ,my buck list friends ! There has been a lot of crazy stuff going on with our refrigerator it started out as inconvenient then it got frustrating now it is just funny but I’m getting ahead of myself . Now, Let’s start at the beginning.
The Great refrigerator saga of 2018
Towards the beginning of August our freezer stopped working ,I went to get a Creamsicle and it was very soft I thought that the door had just been left open . After mentioning the Creamsicle incident to my dad it was discovered that the freezer had stopped working but our Refrigerator/ freezer was under warranty . We called the warranty company and an apportionment was made to have a repair person come out . Before the repair person could come the refrigerator stopped working as well . When the repair person did come he said he didn’t know how to work on this kind of system so the warranty company had to find someone who could work on the system and it took them a long time to find someone .When they finally did find someone the repairman came out and said a new part had to be ordered . The part came then the repairman came but it turns out the wrong part had been ordered . In the meantime we didn’t have a fridge so we had to eat out all the time and store everything else in ice chests . We had to buy ice almost everyday, the bills were really adding up . Finally we bought a mini fridge since it became very clear that this problem would not be solved for awhile . The mini fridge was over $100.00 but it works well . We can’t store as much food as we normally would but we don’t have to eat out near as much as we were . Anyways after the wrong part was derived the warranty company decided to give us refund so we could get a new refrigerator . We went to Home Depot and picked out a new fridge and it was scheduled to be delivered this Tuesday but they didn’t bring enough workers to move the refrigerator up to our house . Then yesterday they came again but the refrigerator was damaged . It was making me mad but now it is just so funny . Maybe by Christmas we will get a new refrigerator I’ll let you know !

My Cousin’s beautiful wedding
On, Saturday 9/22/2018 my cousin got married . It was a beautiful day the sun was shinning it was a little warm but beautiful overall . It was a lot fun getting ready at her house we had some great hair and make-up artists there to make us all look wonderful for the wedding! We all looked amazing but thing I remember most about getting ready was while I was waiting for my make-up to get done I got to hold two of my cousin’s pet chickens ! After a busy morning of hair and make-up we went to the church got into our pretty purple dresses and my cousin put on her amazingly beautiful wedding dress ! Then it was time for the ceremony and to watch my cousin marry the love of her life. After the sweet ceremony it was time to take tons of pictures and do lots of cute and silly poses ! The reception was at a beautiful banquet hall at a restaurant! The reception was so much fun there was a photo booth, lots of dancing, tasty wedding cupcakes,and so many smiles ! It was one on the best receptions I have ever been to . It was just so full of happiness and joy ! It was such a honor to be apart of this beautiful and amazing day !

Hello, my bucket list friends as I wrote not so long ago in this blog post the road of life has been a little bumpy lately but since I’m back working at the preschool my money situation has improved . So I did something I had been wanting to do for a while I got my hair cut short ! I love having short hair it looks good and it is much easier to take care of . I have very thick hair so when it gets longer it is much harder to take care of and it tangles very easily . My hair was a knotted mess and it was time for a change so on Friday I finally went and got my hair cut I went to Great Clips it is my favorite place to get my hair cut ,they do a wonderful job and have great prices . I love the way my hair looks now and it is so much easier to wash and brush ! It was just a simple hair cut but it made me feel better and look better . 🙂
