The rain makes sleepy and other random thoughts

The rain makes me sleepy – I know we need the rain but it does affect my mood . It makes me want to stay in bed all day . It also makes me grumpy because I can’t stay in bed all day and I have to be out it in . It also makes me grumpy when it makes me change my plans . I guess I don’t have a very good relationship with rain.

 

I wonder if my cat knows he’s hurting me when he attacks my foot

My cat Cooper likes to sleep in my bed he also likes to attack my foot when it moves when he is on my bed . I yell at him every time he does it but I wonder if he even knows that it’s my foot he is grabbing. If he does know that it is my foot does he know that it hurts me ? So many questions and not enough answers for this random thought.

 

Will I ever get to live my dream of being on TV

I’ve wanted to be on TV for a very long time . Even if it was just walking past a news camera but it’s never happened .  It is something that I have always day dreamed about but I know it’s so many other’s dream too . So I worry that it will never become a reality but I’ve made so many of my other dreams come true so why not this one ? I should probably stop doubting myself and take another trip down to LA and see what I can do ! I think I would be great on a game show .

Starbucks coffee is great on any day but especially rainy ones – I’m glad I got out of the house today and got some tasty coffee from Starbucks . I love it even in the summer but there is just something perfect about having coffee on a rainy gloomy day .

It was to rainy to walk but I still got my steps in – My mom and I were going to go walking today but with the rain switching on and off so fast, We knew that we would probably get caught in the rain and get soaking wet ! So that didn’t happen but I was still able get my steps for the day in !

I hope you enjoyed my random thoughts !

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 !

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 !

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 ?
