Savers at night

Hello,my bucket list friends! On Saturday I had a night time thrift shopping adventure. I thought it would be fun to share it with all of you so here we go!

I had a long day of work on Saturday but I was in the mood to go thrift shopping. I’m working at different location now and it’s pretty close to the Savers that I go to. What I love most about that Savers location is the books! My mom and I love finding fun books to read. I got off work a half an hour before Savers closed but I figured that would be just enough time to find some good books! As soon as I was off work I hurried to get my stuff and get out the parking lot where my mom was waiting for me. It was a short drive and we parked quickly. As soon as we started walking towards the store someone in the parking lot told me to hurry. I thought it was funny. When we walked in the store an employee told us we had 20 minutes. That’s was good enough for me. On our way back to the book section I saw this beautiful carousel toy . I told my mom to go ahead while I took a look at it. It didn’t take me long to decide that I wanted it. I met my mom over in the book section and we got right to work finding books we wanted. After finding some books I wanted. I went to the toy section. I got a bag of 101 Dalmatians toys and a My Little Pony Equestria Girls doll. When I returned to the book section my mom had found some more books. I took a look at the books again and I found even more books that looked good. I even found some books that I’ve been wanting to read. While in the book section we were told that the store was closed and that it was time to get in line. I was really happy with my finds during this short shopping trip.

Thanks for reading ! Rock on – Christina Epperly

Books and mini golf

Hello, my bucket list friends ! I hope you are all enjoying the summertime. On Saturday I got to do two fun activities and I can’t wait to tell you more about it so here we go!

 

Books and mini golf

Saturday’s first fun activity was going shopping at my favorite used book store. I got two American girl books to add to my collection. After the book store I went to Starbucks. I had a good time at the book store and going to get coffee and that evening  I had scheduled a fun family activity. I had reserved a time slot for my parents and I at a mini golf course. I had been to this mini golf course before and I knew it was a lot of fun. I was happy that we played on my favorite side of the course. Now, I’m not very good at golf but I have a fun time playing it. We started out keeping score but after a bit we stopped keeping score and just played for fun. We all had a really good time and I hope we can go play the other side of the course soon.

My 2020 reading goal

Hello,my bucket list friends! If you take a look at my bucket list you will see that I have some reading goals on there. Such as reading fifty or a hundred books in one year but for this year I deiced to do a smaller goal of 25 books.  ( You can see my progress HERE )   I have read eight books this year so far and I’m starting number nine today.  I have so many books in my room that I haven’t read yet. Doing a reading challenge is giving me a good opportunity to read some of the books I’ve been wanting to read for a while.  I’m kind of surprised at how many books I’ve already read this year! I’ll try to keep all of you updated as I make progress. Happy reading everyone !

Bucket list and books

Hello, my bucket list friends ! I’m excited to tell you about the latest item I’m crossing off my list . I’m actually crossing it off  right now with this post. The item I’m crossing off is #214 Join a book club or start my own. That’s right I’m starting my own book club right here on this blog ! Before I tell you about the book club I’m starting, let me tell you why I decided to start it. I knew I wanted to cross this item off my list so I went looking for an online book club because my work schedule is always changing and it’s hard for me to commit to regular in person meetings. After doing some searching , I came across a Facebook group where a book was chosen each month through a vote. I participated in the the vote and I ordered the book that was chosen. I was excited to be apart of a book club. I got about a hundred or so pages into the book when I decided to stop reading that book and start  my own book club. From what I have seen the books that are often times ( not always) Chosen for book clubs including the one I was reading are focused on heavy subject matter. The book I was reading was very well written and the descriptions of the characters were amazingly detailed. I have discovered that I tend to enjoy books with more light hearted subject matter. I’m excited to announce the start of the Light Heart book club ! I have so many books in my room that I have been meaning to read. The book that I have chosen for April is an American Girl book . The book is called Lanie and the author is Jane Kurtz. This book focus on a young girl with a love for the outdoors! When I have finished the book I will post my review.  As well as some activities inspired by the book. Feel free to join me in reading this light hearted book !

Things I love February 2019

Hello, my bucket list friends . I’ve been so busy this month that it has flown right by without me hardly even noticing but here we are at the end. Just keep on reading to see the things I’m loving in February 2019

 

Things I love February 2019

 

Hello tooth paste

I love using natural products and I was excited to try a brand of tooth paste that I had not heard of before. I got the mint flavored tooth paste and it has a simple taste that is not overpowering ,plus it always makes me happy when I’m using products that have not been tested on animals.

 

Judy Moody and the bucket list audio book on Audible

I’m always looking for bucket list stories so I searched Audible’s library for the any books on the topic. I came across the fun and funny story Judy Moody and the bucket list and I really enjoyed it. It’s a children’s book so it’s great for all ages ! I love how the book captured the frustration and excitement when it came to crossing items off your bucket list. I highly recommend this book book for all bucket listers.

American girl brain benders book

I picked up this book before I started my week at Stanford and I’m very glad I did. It was full of fun puzzles that kept me entertained during my downtime in between treatments. I liked the word searches the best. If you like solving puzzles this is a great book for you.

song – House of Fire by Alice Cooper

Now, This is not a new song or even song that I  newly discovered . It’s one of my favorite songs that I’ve loved since high school. Well years ago my OCD told me that if I listened to the song bad things would happen. Even though I knew that it wasn’t true the anxiety I felt kept me from listening to it. Until I started receiving TMS treatments during my week at Stanford. During the week I decided to try listing to the song again. Any anxiety I felt quickly faded and I was filled up with joy ! I was so happy that I was able to listen to the song again I played it over and over ! This is for sure my favorite song of the month!

Lara bar Gingerbread flavor

I love Lara bars and I was excited to see a new interesting flavor to try. On the wrapper it said it was a limited addition. I’m guessing that this flavor was released for Christmastime but there were some leftovers. I’m glad I got to try this flavor I really enjoyed it . I also tried the Snicker doodle flavor but the gingerbread was my favorite.
My little pony Equestria girls pinkie pie doll

I have quite a few Equestria girls dolls but I hadn’t got any in the newer style until I went to Target this month. I got the doll of my favorite character Pinkie Pie. I love her dress ! the balloons on it are so cute and fun. I also like her shoes with the heart cutout. I wish I could get some clothes like hers ! I’m so happy I bought her.
