Blogmas day 7 , Snowman cookie :)

Hello, my bucket list friends ! On Sunday I went to Whole Foods and I got this very cute and yummy Snowman sugar cookie. Sugar cookies are one of my favorite Christmastime treats. I love decorating sugar cookies as well. Maybe I should get a sugar cookie kit and do a blogmas post about it. Do you like decorating sugar cookies ?

Blogmas day 4 Christmas time Target run .

Hello, my bucket list friends! Today after work I made a stop by Target I was excited to check out their Christmas section. I was surprised to see just how picked over the Christmas section already was. There was a fair amount of empty spaces. However I still was able to find a very cute ornament It was a unicorn pool floatie. I also got some colorful lights to put outside. One of my favorite sections in Target is the toy section. I went down the Barbie aisle and I got a Christmas themed Barbie doll. Even though there was less to choose from in the Christmas section then I had hoped there would be, I still consider today shopping trip to be a success.

Five great reasons to make a bucket list

Hello ,my bucket list friends ! I hope you are all having a great month . I really love writing this blog and I want to publish more posts each month so I thought it would be fun to make a list of the reasons why having a bucket list is awesome because I’m surprised that many people don’t have one !

Reasons to have a bucket list

  1. keeping your dreams in sight – Let’s face it life is busy and it is easy to lose sight of the things that you want most in life . A bucket list is the perfect thing to keep you focused on your dreams .

2. It’s a great way to face your fears – Having things written down is great way to remember to get things done . If you want to face some of your fears write them down on your list . Seeing them written down can be great motivation to make your fears a thing of the past and imagine how great you will feel when you cross that item off .

3. discovering new dreams – As I looked for list items ,I found some cool things to add to my list that I probably would have never thought of on my own . By making a bucket list I discovered some cool things that I got excited about . My list helps me to dream big and discover new goals .

4. Going on great adventures with great people – I love getting the help of my family and friends to cross items of my list . Crossing items off your list can be wonderful way to make some lasting memories with your loved ones .

5. Bucket lists are fun ! – I enjoy having a bucket list for many reasons but really they are a lot of fun ! I have created so many great memories by crossing items off my list . There are somethings that were a lot fun that I may not have done if I didn’t have my list .

I hope this inspired you to make a list of your own !

January 2018 wrap up!

Hello, bucket list friends since January is ending soon I thought I would do a quick wrap up on the first month of 2018. I’ve been working on somethings this month and I can’t wait to tell you all about it so here we go!

 

 

My life in January 2018

 

January always seems to go by slowly for me. There does not seem to be a lot happening in January and the month just drags on. Also, the gloomy weather can cause me to become depressed. I discovered a long time ago that walking is a great way to improve my mood and that is what I have been doing a lot of this month. I have been on many walks this month and some even on sunny days! Two of my favorite walks that I took this month were the one by the beach and the one to the pond on a trail that had been closed for a long time, It felt good to go on that trail again. I also started working on one of my more long-term bucket list items #195 read 100 books in one year this month I read 8 books, so I’m off to a great start. I’ve also been doing a lot of writing this month I’ve started writing a fiction story The Unschooled Dairy of Aspen Roads (you can read it here

 

). I plan to do a lot more fiction writing this year and I have been working on two other books that I have not posted. I’ve also spent some great times with family and friends this month and as you can tell from my last blog post I dyed my hair green and that was bucket list item #166 I also booked my vacation for this summer and the destination is on my bucket list, I signed up for a 5k next month as well!   To top it all off today a whole box of my little pony toys that I won from eBay arrived today, I had so much fun looking through all the ponies. January might not usually be a very fun month but this time I feel like I turned that around, I mean I crossed off a list item and I had some great friend time! I did face some obstacles month but overall the year is off to a great start .

thanksgiving in Idaho

Hello, my beautiful bucket list friends! Here we are in the last month of 2017 and I have quite a few blog posts that I want to write and videos that I want to make before we jump on into 2018 so get ready for a lot of updates from this professional dreamer.

 

 

This past thanksgiving was very different for me, it was the first thanksgiving that I have ever celebrated outside of California. The biggest difference is that it was colder then California thanksgiving but I’m getting ahead of myself. Let’s go back to Los Angeles, the day after I crossed #139 (go beach hopping) off my list. I woke up very early that Tuesday morning to go LAX, so I could take my first flight of two flights that I would take that day. I got to the airport with plenty of time to spare so I had all the time I needed to find my gate, eat and charge up my phone before getting on my first flight to Seattle. After a two-hour ride I was in the state of Washington for the first time ever. When I arrived, one of the first things I did was look at my flight information on my phone. I was confused at first but it didn’t take long for me to realize that my 2nd flight (the one that would take me to Idaho) was delayed by about 3 hours. Needless to say, I was not very happy about this, but life happens. One of the worst things about being stuck in the airport was looking outside and seeing the awful weather outside but from what I hear that’s just how it is in Seattle. I was really missing the California sunshine at this point . The Disneyland plane that was parked by the windows was able to put a smile on my face, but I had plenty of time before the now delayed plane was ready to go. So I did the best thing I could to lift my mood I bought myself some food, a snow globe and a post card. After my little shopping trip, I relaxed the best I could until it was time for my last flight of the day. When I finally got to Idaho I was tired but excited to see my family and Jewels one of my favorite dogs in the whole world. After going out for a great dinner and spending time with family I crashed. The next day was the day before Thanksgiving so it was a very busy day, but I was able to stop by the Goodwill and get some cool stuff including some My Little Pony toys. It was a fun day filled with lots of shopping, food and family fun. I had a lot of new my little pony toys before the day ended.

The next day  it was time to celebrate thanksgiving with some of the people that I love most.Even tough I was in a different time zone than normal. Thanksgiving was pretty much the same. There was lots of food and time to catch up with those you don’t get to see often. After a great day of celebrating with family and eating lots of wonderful food. It was time to get ready for my 4th and final fight of the trip. The flight back home was fast and before I knew it I was back with my cats in California. It was a good but short trip to Idaho. When I go back I should have more time to explore and maybe even cross off a list item or two.
