I love my glittery nails and other thoughts :)

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 !

Light Heart book club October 2020 discussion.

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 !

Activities

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.

Pumpkin decorating!

Hello, my bucket list friends I recently finished decorating two pumpkins that I got at the pumpkin patch. I had a fun time decorating them and I can’t wait to tell you all about it. Let’s get to it!

Pumpkin decorating

For my first pumpkin I decided to paint it with the blue and green paint that I got from Michaels. I had fun covering my pumpkin in dots! This is a very simple but very fun way to decorate. I also painted some lines going down the pumpkin. I really liked the overall look of this pumpkin when I finished it. For the next pumpkin I decorated it using a bag of wooden beads from the Dollar Tree. I simply glued the colorful wooden beads on to the pumpkin using my hot glue gun. I decided to do a circle of beads around the top of the pumpkin. Then I used the beads to make a happy face on the pumpkin. I had a lot of fun with this pumpkin decorating project ! Are you decorating pumpkins this year?

My adventure to the pumpkin patch and other fun places !

Hello, my bucket list friends ! I thought it would be fun to tell you about my latest adventures. Ready ? Set? Let’s go !!!

My adventure to the pumpkin patch and other fun places

On Saturday my mom and I went to a local pumpkin patch. We went to this location last year and I really like it. It’s on the smaller side and that’s one of the things I like about it. Also the crowds are pretty low compared to some of the bigger pumpkin patches I’ve been too. I enjoyed taking pictures in this pumpkin patch . I also found the perfect pumpkins to decorate. After the pumpkin patch we went to the Dollar Tree. I haven’t been to this location in a while but I’m really glad that I went because I finally got the glow in the dark beads I’ve been wanting! After that we went to Michaels to buy supplies to decorate our pumpkins with. While we were in Michaels I spent a good amount of time looking at the Christmas stuff. I know it’s October but I can’t wait for Christmas time to begin. I got blue and green paint for my pumpkins I also got a cute craft kit and a few other fun things . In my next post I’ll talk about decorating my pumpkins! Thanks for reading!

Mess free glitter art !?

Hello, my bucket list friends! Monday I did one of my favorite and much needed stress relieving activities art! I decided to look through a bunch of my art and craft kits and chose one. I decided to do a craft kit that was different for the ones I useally do. This Melissa and Doug craft kit said that it made mess free glitter art. If you are a fan of arts and crafts you know that mess free and glitter are two things that normally don’t go together. I was curious to see how this would work out. It took me a little while to figure out how this kit worked but once I did it was a lot of fun! The kit came with two pictures that you decorated the glitter sheets that came with the kit. The pictures had stickers that you removed then you pressed the glitter sheets on to sticky part that the sticker covered. A few times I accidentally used the wrong side of the glitter sheets but luckily I was able to recover from that mistake. In my opinion the kit really lived up to it’s promise of mess free glitter art. I was really happy with the way the art turned out and now that I know how to use these kits I would love to do more in the future!

Hello Bat!

Hello, my bucket list friends! I recently completed a fun craft kit. This kit came from CVS. It was a pretty simple kit where you painted a ceramic bat but the bat is also a magnet! This kit came with three colors of paint but I also used other paints that I had to paint the bat. This was a very quick art project but it was also a lot of fun. Also I just have to say that the bat is so cute! I would love to do more magnet kits like this.

Things I love September 2020

Hello, my bucket list friends ! Well it’s time to wave goodbye to another month! This month was very busy and not always the good kind of busy. Like having to wait in a very long line at the DMV. However there were some things I loved this month so let’s take a look at thoes!

Things I love September 2020

Books – Reading is becoming one of my favorite hobbies. On my latest trip to Savers I got ten books! ( You can read about it HERE) I’ve actually already finished the book I’m going to use for October’s book club. I can’t wait to discuss it with all of you.

Childhood memories – I’ve been going through old photos a lot lately. I wanted to gather phots to use for throwback Thursday . I really enjoy looking at these photos it’s like traveling through time.

Kid’s toothpaste – I’m a kid at heart so it’s no surprise that I love useing kids tooth paste! Having cute pictures on the tooth paste tube makes brushing my teeth more fun! Plus I can buy it at the Dollar Tree.

Going to the mall – I went to the mall with my friend Amy one day before work. Yay for Jamba juice and Claire’s!

There you have it some of the things I loved in September 2020! Thanks for reading and Rock On – Christina Epperly
