#215 get some Lisa Frank clothes

Hello, my bucket list friends! I’m very excited to tell all of you that I crossed off my first bucket list item of 2017. I can’t wait to tell you all about it so let’s get going.

 

Recently I add ten items to my bucket list and getting Lisa Frank clothes was one of them. I was born in 1990 so needless to say Lisa frank was a big part of my childhood but even as an adult I love Lisa Frank .When I saw that Rage On had Lisa frank clothes I really wanted to get some, I was low on money  I added it to my bucket list so I wouldn’t forget about it. Soon after I added number 215 to the list I started getting more hours at work and I could afford to get some of those colorful Lisa Frank clothes. I got two shirts and I love them both! They are so beautiful and colorful . I’m glad I crossed another item off my list and I can’t wait to cross off more list items.

March 2017 comfort zone buster plus 2017 check in

 

Hello my bucket list friends! The year is flying by so fast we are already in spring and March is ending. I thought it would be a good time to give you my 2017 update but first let’s start off with my comfort zone buster for March. Pretty much everyone has a bad habit I decided to use my mothy comfort zone buster to help me break one of mine I have a bad habit of saying sorry a lot. I say it every day many times a day even for things that are not my fault so for this month I decided to try to break my habit of saying sorry all the time. I came across something online that said to replace sorry with thank you. I thought that was a really good idea so I started doing that. I liked how instead of saying I was sorry I would thank others for helping me or for being kind.  Things were going really well but I found myself slipping and saying sorry more and more. Epically the day I was supervising my kitten Cooper outside and he ran up a tree and got stuck for hours. We had to call a tree service to come and get him down. I said sorry a lot that day! I really want to continue working on saying sorry less so I’m going to continue this confront zone buster into April. Now it’s time for an update on my year so far . If I had to describe it in one word it would be intense . Back in January the area I live in got hit with some strong storms. In my neighborhood, we had seven power poles fall and power was out for about four days. Around the same time my cat Blanca was having health problems, she is fine now Praise God! This year so far has been filled with money problems, strong emotions and lots of stress. I don’t mean to be so negative and I know every year has its ups and downs but this year so far, the downs are outweighing the ups. I know that God has a plan for me and I trust him. Things are already starting to turn around and I hope to have some list items crossed off soon!  In the comments below Let me know what helped you get through a hard time in your life.

Before I end this blog post I want to let all of you know that I created a 2nd Instagram page @bucketlisterchristina to showcase my art, photography, and bucket list adventures. You can find my Social media page information in the about section of this blog including my YouTube channel where I release weekly bucket list vlogs!

February 2017 comfort zone buster

Hello my bucket list friends  . As you know each month I’m coming up with a different comfort zone buster . To help me complete my news years goal . This month I decide to go vegan . This is a comfort zone buster for me because even though I am a vegetarian so giving up meat is something that I did over four years ago, I still eat dairy pretty much every day. I’m going to tell you right now that I did not stay with this comfort zone buster for the whole month. after two weeks, I gave in and ate some chocolate but I’m going to tell you about the two weeks I spent being vegan.  On my first day of being vegan I started off the day with toast and almond butter. I was off to a good start and things didn’t seem so hard just a few changes like switching to a different brand of energy bar that did not have dairy and getting my veggie bowl at Chipotle without cheese. it was sometimes hard to say no to donuts and other treats but I stuck with it for two weeks until I gave in to chocolate. I would like to try being vegan again sometime because there are many wonderful vegan foods out there and shopping for vegan food is actually very easy. I just have to say that vegan ice cream is amazing! Also, some frozen yogurt places offer nondairy flavors so I was still able to enjoy creating my own frozen yogurt creation I think I will keep this challenge for next year.

The dreams never stop

Hello my bucket list friends ! I have an announcement to make, I’ve decide that it is time to add a few more things to my bucket list .  I never stop dreaming or even discovering old dreams that I have forgot about. I have come up with 10 new items to add to my bucket list and remember never stop dreaming my friends .

20170216_210809

  1. Go to Washington DC

I remember when my sister went to DC in the 8th grade but since I was home schooled I did not get to go on my own trip to DC.  I have wanted to go there for a while so I thought it deserved a place on the list.

  1. Own an American girl doll

When I was a kid I loved getting the American girl catalogs and magazines, I always wanted one of the dolls but they were very expensive so I could not get one. This is one of those forgotten dreams. I don’t care how old I am I still want to make this childhood dream of mine come true.

  1. Have a Wikipedia page about me

I love inspiring others to go for their dreams and be the best that they can be and that’s what I want to be famous for . When I have a Wikipedia page about me that is when I will know that I have really made it.

  1. Take a cake decorating class

I love art and I love food epically sweets. I would love to learn how to make frosting roses and other fun designs

  1. Try standup comedy

talk about a comfort zone buster! I love to write but writing with the intent of being funny is something that I have never done before. I’m going to be honest this list item scares me but I think it would be a good experience for me because I want to be very comfortable with public speaking

  1. Be in a magazine

I love having my picture taken and showing off my personality for the camera and it would be super fun to have my picture in a magazine

  1. Finish a 10k

I’ve done many 5ks and a half marathon but I have not done a 10k and I would really like to do one.

  1. Interview another bucket lister for my blog – I want to meet more bucket listers and hear about their adventures and maybe even help each other cross off some list items .
  2. Join a book club or start my own

I love to read but lately I have not been reading as much as I would like too . I would love to be a part of a book club so I could get back to reading.

 

 

  1. Get some Lisa Frank clothes

I have seen some really awesome Lisa Frank clothes  online but they are out of my price range right now . Making it a list item will help me to remember to get some when I have the money .
