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 !

bucket list #227 Get a reversible sequin shirt

Hello, my bucket list friends ! As you can tell by the the title of this post I crossed off my first bucket list item of 2020 ! It was pretty easy to cross off but I’m still very excited to tell you all about it. Here we go !

 

bucket list #227 Get a reversible sequin shirt

I love the reversible sequin trend ! I have seen this trend on pillows ,back packs and clothes . I really wanted to join in but most of the clothes that followed this trend were made for kids. I put it on my bucket list because I figured there just had to be a reversible sequin shirt in adult sizes somewhere. I turned to Amazon I figured it would be the best place to find what I was looking for. I found a few different styles to chose from. I ended up going with a pink shirt that had two cats on it. The cats are covered in sequins. ans they change colors when you move the sequins . I really like this shirt and I’m happy that I got it!  Rock on – Christina Epperly

Bucket list # 218 get acupuncture

Hello, my bucket list friends ! I crossed another item off my bucket list and I can’t wait to tell you about it so here we go !

Bucket list # 218 get acupuncture

Sometimes I talk to other people about the items on my list and when I mentioned this item it turned out I was not the only one who wanted to give acupuncture a try. For this bucket list adventure I was joined by my sister and my cousin. We started off the day with an awesome breakfast at Black Bear diner. After that we went to a mall for a bit then it was time for our acupuncture appointments.  Since there was only one doctor working at the health center that day ,our appointments were all a half hour apart.  When it was my turn I walked from the waiting room to an area that was just behind the wall that separated the waiting room from the treatment rooms. I sat down at a table across from the doctor and I told her about my shoulder pain ,after asking me some questions about my medical history and taking my vital signs it was time to go to one of the treatment rooms and begin my acupuncture experience. The health center we were at also does massage so it was no surprise that that treatment room looked just like a room at a massage clinic. When it came time to put the needles in I was nervous .I knew the doctor could tell I was nervous because she told me to relax. I did my best to relax my muscles and before I knew it the needles started going into my shoulders and the surrounding area some of the needles I barley felt as they went in some of them pinched a little bit when they went in. After just a little while all the needles were in. The doctor left the room and told me she would be back in 30 mins. As I laid there in the room I felt very relaxed I was close to falling a sleep at certain points. It was more relaxing then I thought it would be. Before I knew it the doctor was back to remove the needles. After the treatment my shoulder felt better. I enjoyed this experience and I hope to do acupuncture on my knee sometime.

Bucket list #107 !

Hello, my bucket list friends! I’m so excited to tell you about this super fun list item that I crossed off ! So, here we go!

#107. Win first place in a contest or event

To fully tell this story I have to take you back to last month. I was on Instagram and I saw a post from Yogurt Land advertising a contest ! To enter the contest you had to create a fun Yogurt Land creation take a picture of it and put it on Instagram using the hashtag they provided plus tag them in the photo. The prize for the winner was a $100.00 Yogurt Land gift card! I really wanted to enter this contest because I love making fun frozen yogurt creations. Later that week I made my way to Yogurt Land and took a picture of the Yogurt Land mountain that I made . I followed the instructions to enter the contest and then I waited. Then early this this month I received a message from Yogurt Land saying that I had won the contest! I was so excited !! Yesterday I finally got around to using my gift card for the first time ! I’m so happy I won the contest! Here’s to more yogurt land creations!

Rock on – Christina Epperly
