2020 goals how did I do ?

Hello, my bucket list friends ! In my last post I set my goals for 2021. However I wanted to review my goals for 2020 . Let’s get to it!

2020 goals

Draw at least one picture every week – I didn’t stick to the one drawing a week but I did draw a lot this year . I’ll call this one a win!

listen to audio books for 3 hours each week – I didn’t stick to the weekly rule on this one either. I listened to audio books somewhat but not as much as I would have liked to.

Read two or more books each month – I completed my Good Reads challenge of reading 25 books this year! I’m really happy about this one!

build up my saving accounts – last year wasn’t a great year for that but I have a good feeling about this year.

Hang out with a friend at least once a month – I don’t think this happened every month but I was able to do a few friend hang outs .

Complete the monthly step challenge on Samsung Health each month – I was doing good until July . I’ll see how I do this year.

Thanks for reading !

2021 goals !

Hello,my bucket list friends! Happy new year! 2021 is here and that means it’s time to set some new goals. My main focus for this year is to slow down and try to not get caught up in the fast-paced environment that I live in. Cheers to slowing down.

1. Read 50 books . I finished my Goodreads challenge of reading 25 books for 2020. This year I’m going to aim for 50 this year.

2. Take more baths . I useally take showers because they are quicker but baths are much more relaxing.

3. Use 5 new bath bombs! I love bath bombs and I want to discover new ones that I love.

4. Start freelance writing- I love writing and I really want to start writing on different websites.

5. Cross five things off my bucket list ! I crossed nine items of in 2020. I gonna aim for 5 this year!

My 2020

Hello, my bucket list friends! Can you believe it ? We are at the end of 2020! It’s probably huge understatement to say that this year had it’s challenges. However it also had many highlights for me personally. Even with everything going on I managed to cross nine items off my bucket list. I traveled to Idaho, Montana, Seattle, and Hawaii. I got promoted to full time and I celebrated one year of working for that company. I got some pretty cool items from thrift stores including a lot of great books! I also was able to spend time with some of my favorite people. I did experience some lows as well I had to say goodbye to my beautiful kitty Blanca and there was a trip to the ER. With all things considered this year was alright. My hope for 2021 is that it is a much more relaxing year. Happy new years !

Last thrift trip of 2020

Hello, my bucket list friends! Yesterday, I went thrift shopping for the last time in 2020! I went to one of my favorite Goodwill locations and I was surprised to see how empty a lot of the shelves were. However I was still able to find some great items. Some of my favorite items I found include a foam visor craft kit, two Christmas crafts kits that were both 50% off, an American Girl book and a pair of unicorn slippers. I wonder what I will find on my first thrift shopping trip of 2021.

Blogmas day 24 Christmas ornament DIY.

Hello, my bucket list friends! Today I decorated a Christmas ornament. I got the main part of the ornament from the Dollar tree I filled the ornament with pom poms that also came from the Dollar Tree. After I put the pom poms in the ornament I knew it needed a little something else. I found some glitter glue in another Christmas ornament kit and I used that to decorate the outside of the clear plastic ornament. I’m happy with the way this project turned out but it is still drying at the moment. Have you ever done any DIY Christmas ornaments?

Blogmas day 22 fun CVS finds

Hello, my bucket list friends ! In my last blog post I mentioned that I went to CVS yesterday. Well in addition to the Oreo candy canes I got some other fun items. I love that CVS sells products from Claire’s. I got this cute Claire’s brand reindeer hair scrunchie. In the Christmas section I was able to find a unicorn ornament, and some cute socks. Plus I also got these Hershey kisses treasure boxes that come with My Little Pony toys! What fun Christmas themed items have you been able to find lately?

Blogmas day 21 Oreo candy canes!

Hello, my bucket list friends! Yesterday I was in CVS with my friend Amy. As we were in line to pay we saw a display of candy canes. When I saw the Oreo ones I was instantly curious about what they would taste like. We didn’t have time to try them together because I had to go to work so I left some candy canes with Amy for her to try. While I was on a break at work I tried one and to me it tasted just like chocolate pudding! I definitely recommend this candy for the chocolate lovers. What fun candy cane flavors have you tried?
