Hello,my bucket list friends ! I’m currently on vacation in Hawaii as I write this post. Before I got to Hawaii I had what I’m calling the best layover ever! When my parents and I arrived in Seattle we were unable to continue on to Hawaii due to their new travel requirements. We ended up spending the night in Seattle so we could have time to meet the new requirements. Since it was morning when we arrived in Seattle I saw it as an opportunity to explore the city and even cross some items off my bucket list.
Since we only had one day to explore Seattle, my mom and I decided to get a combination ticket that would let us explore two different attractions. The first attraction the we went to was the Space Needle. The views of the city from the Space Needle are simply amazing! It’s a great place to take pictures and it also has a really big gift shop! After exploring the Space Needle we went to the Chihuly garden and glass museum. The art here is very beautiful. I loved the colors and the creativity. I highly recommend both of these attractions if you visit Seattle.
While I was in Seattle I crossed three items off my bucket list! Here are the items I crossed off my list!
#230 Drink coffee in Seattle
#240 Go the Space Needle in Seattle
#285 Visit Chihuly Garden and Glass
Thank you for reading ! Rock On – Christina Epperly
Hello, my bucket list friends ! Recently I did a very cute jelly fish craft kit. I’m excited to tell you more about it so let’s get to it!
Jelly fish craft kit !
I got this very cute jellyfish craft kit at Michael’s. when I decided to use it, I didn’t know if I would need glue or any other components to put the jellyfish together. I was happy to find out that I didn’t need anything extra. The pieces had adhesive on them and I was able to put them together very easily. I loved doing this super simple craft kit! It was easy to put together and the jelly fish are super cute!
Hello, my bucket list friends! Yesterday I went to Whole Foods on my lunch break and I saw something I just had to try, white chocolate peppermint popcorn! This fun flavor is made by Skinny Pop. I Love peppermint. I also love trying new peppermint flavored snacks. So without any more delay let’s dive on in!
When I first opened the bag ,the popcorn looked normal but upon closer inspection. I did notice little red spots on the popcorn. As for the taste I’m just gonna say it ,I love this popcorn! It has a perfect salty sweet taste. It has the right amount of peppermint without being overpowering. As you can probably guess I do recommend trying this snack.
Hello, my bucket list friends ! I’m very excited to tell you about the book that I’ve chosen for this month’s book club.This month’s book is Courtney changes the game by Kellen Hertz. When I heard that American Girl was coming out with an 1980’s themed doll ,I was excited to read the books about her. I’ve already started reading this book and I can’t wait to do activities inspired by it and to discuss it on this blog. Happy reading ! Rock On – Christina Epperly
Hello, my bucket list friends! I love watching fun youtube videos and not too long ago one of my favorite video creators did a video where they took self timer photos. ( You can watch it HERE) I really liked the idea of taking self timer photos so I decided to try it out for myself. I can’t wait to show you the fun photos I took so let’s get to it!
Self timer photoshoot challenge !
For my first self timer photo shoot I decided to cover my bed with stuffed animals! I loved the way I set everything up but doing this photoshoot was harder then I thought it would be. I thought I had a tripod that would work with my phone but it turns out I didn’t so I put my phone on a stack of books. I had fun coming up with different poses but I did get tired of having to reset the timer. Even with those challenges I’m happy with the way the photos turned out. Here are three of my favorites!
For my next photoshoot I decided to head outside to my deck. The weather was perfect for photos and I had a fun time choosing different spots on my deck to take photos from. Here are three of my favorite outdoor photos!
For my last photoshoot I decided to take photos in the car. I had my neighbor’s dog with me that day so I included him in the photos . It was hard to get him to look at the camera but he is cute no matter what direction he is looking in ! Here are three of my favorites!
There you have it my self timer photoshoot challenge! Overall this was fun to do and definitely worth trying!
Hello,my bucket list friends! It’s hard to believe that’s it’s November already! Before we get much further into November let’s take a look back at the good things October had in store!
Going to the pumpkin patch – I had a fun time picking out the perfect pumpkins with my mom. ( You can read about it HERE)
Getting my nails done – I had a great time getting my nails done with my friend. I loved the way they looked! ( You can read about it HERE)
Arts and crafts! I always love arts and crafts but this month I had a lot of fun decorating my pumpkins and trying out mess free glitter art! ( You can read about it HERE and HERE)
Dressing up as a unicorn for Halloween ! – On Halloween I worked most of the day but I was able to dress up. I loved getting to wear something different to work. It was fun to wear a unicorn horn all day !
Trying a new Kit Kat flavor – I love trying new candy flavors! It was fun to review this interesting flavor of Kit Kat! ( You can read about it HERE)
Hello, my bucket list friends ! It’s time for another fun food review! Let’s dive on in!
While I was in Walgreens I saw Apple pie flavored Kit Kats up by the register and I knew I just had to try it! I love trying fun candy flavors and this one looked like it would be fun to review. I love the design and colors on the packaging. As for the taste it was light and sweet. I think I was expecting some vanilla flavor because the picture on the packaging had a picture of pie with ice cream on it. There was no vanilla flavor but I still enjoyed it.This candy bar has a nice apple flavor that wasn’t overpowering. I recommend trying this especially if you love apples!
Hello,my bucket list friends ! Today is one of those days when I have a lot of random things that I want to write about so I decided to put them all in one post. Here we go.
I love my glittery nails ! My friend Amy and I got our nails done together. She got this beautiful blue color on her toes and I got pink and purple with glitter on my finger nails. I’m so glad that I decided to get a gel manicure because my nails still look amazing over a week after I got them done!
I can’t wait for my doll to return from the hospital. – I know that’s a weird sentence to read but I had to send one of my American Girl dolls off for repairs. I think it was last week or maybe the week before I sent my doll Coral to the American Girl doll hospital. I bought Coral off eBay earlier this year. After not having her for very long her leg fell off. Doll limbs can get loose over time and fall off. I’ve been meaning to send her to the hospital for a while now and I can’t wait for her to return!
I have had some good thrift finds lately. – I love going thrift shopping and lately I’ve been finding some great stuff such as American Girl stickers and books, arts and crafts kits, Beanie Babies and some nice clothes. Going thrift shopping is like going on a treasure hunt I never know what I’m going to find!
I went walking on one of my favorite trails – Due to weather,smoke and work schedules I haven’t been able to go on as many walks as I would like to. Getting to walk on my favorite trails again was great! It was a beautiful day !
Hello, my bucket list friends ! It’s time for our October 2020 book club discussion. I’m excited to discuss this book with all of you. This month’s book is Blaire cooks up a plan by Jennifer Castle. This was a fun book to read and I can’t wait to discuss it with all of you but as always just one more thing before we dive into our discussion. The following post contains major plot points ( Spoilers ) for the book . If you want to read the book and haven’t yet, I suggest you wait to read this post until you have finished the book. Now, let’s dive into our discussion!
My favorite part of the book – This book was full of great moments. Out of all the moments one really stands out. I absolutely love the part where Blair and her best friend Thea were exploring the attic of the house that was being renovated for one of their favorite shows.When they got to the attic their imagination started running wild with great design ideas. Their idea for an indoor playground in the attic became a reality. That was a fun part to read !
My least favorite part of the book – It was so sad when Blair had set aside a jar of sauce for Abby and it got given to someone else. Things did eventually work out but that was such a sad moment
Overall opinion of the book – I enjoyed reading this book. It’s a fun read and it has a big focus on helping others. I recommend this book for sure !
I loved how Blair designed the indoor playground so I thought it would be fun to design my own fun space. I decided to draw my dream reading room complete with a cozy reading area and a large plush bear! What dream room would you design ?
Blair lives on a farm where lots of food is grown. What kind of fruit or vegetables would you grow at your house? I have oranges and Lemons growing on my deck. For this activity I took pictures of the food growing at my house. If you don’t have any fruits or vegetables growing around your house, draw a picture of what food you would what to grow.
Hello, my bucket list friends ! Today is a beautiful sunny day and I decided to draw a Dinosaur picture! I love this fun picture so much ! What have you been drawing lately ? Rock On – Christina Epperly
