Bucket List #76 get a Disney Tattoo

Hello, my bucket list friends ! I just crossed another item of my bucket list. As always I’m excited to share my adventure with all of you so here we go !

 

 

Bucket List #76 get a Disney Tattoo

 

I have been wanting to cross this one off for a while now and on Friday I finally got my chance. My friend and I were having a wonderful hang out day. We had just finished walking around a park when we were trying to decide what to do next. I looked on my phone and saw that there was a tattoo shop nearby that took walk ins so we went to check it out. When we got there I was happy to hear that they had time to take a walk in appointment . I wanted to get two Mickey Mouse shaped balloons but I wanted one of them to have a bow on top to look like Minnie.I showed the artist some pictures of similar tattoos and he drew up the perfect design. My friend enjoyed watching and taking pictures while I got my newest tattoo. I’m a huge Disney fan and I wanted a fun tattoo that would show that. I’m really happy with the way it turned out and I’m also happy that I crossed another item off my list !

A different kind of January

Hello, my bucket list friends ! Usually January is notorious for being a slow month that drags on . It always seems that way to me but this January flew by . It’s a weird feeling . We just had new year’s eve and now February is on it’s way. The stores are filled with Valentine’s day items and each day we get closer to welcoming February . Why did this January fly by so fast compared to the ones I’ve experienced in the past ? The answer is I’m not sure . I mean I did work a lot but I know I have done that in years past too . Maybe it was the weather we did have some really nice sunny days maybe that was the reason ? We had rain too so I just don’t know . I just know that it feels weird . I think I was excepting a more relaxing month but that just didn’t happen . I was busy , working hard and trying to keep my stress level down .  Now don’t get me wrong this month was not a waste I crossed two items off my bucket list ( you can read about them HERE and HERE ),had great times with family and friends and chowed down on some yummy food . It just feels weird that it’s over all ready . Oh well time to set all the weird feeling aside and look forward to February !

Here are some January pictures !

Bucket list #42 have a pizza eating contest

Hello, my bucket list friends ! During my amazing sleepover weekend with my amazing awesome friend ,I crossed another item off my list . ( you can read about the other list item HERE ) Now without further delay here is the second item that I crossed off in 2019 !

 

Bucket list #42 have a pizza eating contest

My friend and I had gotten two pizzas for our sleepover we ate one Friday night and saved the next one for Saturday . I asked my friend if she wanted to have a pizza eating contest and because she is so awesome she said yes . We had cooked the pizza the night before and when we put in a container to go in the fridge we didn’t use a pizza cutter so the pieces were all uneven.  So it wasn’t a fair contest but we didn’t really care . I finished my piece first and won but it was smaller then my friend’s piece. I took a video of us having the contest and it is a pretty funny video at lest I think so . I might upload the video to You Tube soon but in the meantime take a look and some stills from the video.

Cheers to another list item being crossed off my bucket list !

Bucket list #204 put glow sticks in a pool and go swimming

Hello, my bucket list friends ! As you can see from the title of this post I crossed another item off my list ! This is my first item that I’ve crossed off in 2019. I’m so excited to tell all of you about it so let’s get to it .

 

Bucket list #204 put glow sticks in a pool and go swimming

This was one of those items that was going to to be a little tricky to cross off because I don’t usually have access to a swimming pool and when I do it’s usually a public pool or a hotel pool and I wouldn’t be aloud to cross this item off there but I got the chance when my awesome and amazing friend was house sitting at a place with a pool .  Earlier this week, I bought a bunch of glow sticks at the Dollar Tree so I was prepared. When Friday finally came, my friend picked me up from work and we went to the store to get some sleepover food . After spending sometime snacking and relaxing  it was time to put the glow sticks in the pool . The glow sticks looked really awesome in the pool. It was a bright rainbow of color in the water and so beautiful to look at .  It was dark and pretty cold out and the pool was not heated so my friend stayed out of the pool and took pictures for me . While crazy me went into the very cold swimming pool . It was so cold but I’ve been in need for an adventure so I pushed myself to go into the pool . I went under the water and I grabbed to glow sticks. I held them up so proud of myself ! Due it is being so cold I did not spend much time in the pool but going under the water and grabbing the glow sticks was enough in accomplish my goal and give me a great memory to look back on . The next day I had to get all the glow sticks out of the pool and that was easier said then done but with the help of my friend and a net ,the pool was glow stick free before it got to late . I’m really happy I crossed this item of the list and I had a fun sleepover with my friend . What more could I ask for ?

Stuck in the bucket list rut

Hello, my bucket list friends ! I just recently wrote about about living the bucket list life everyday ( you can read it here )  but to be honest I’m stuck in a rut right now I haven’t crossed any thing new off my list since November ! It’s really bothering me . So what’s a bucket lister to do in times like this ? Make plans to cross off more items of course ! I tried to cross one off on a whim but that didn’t work out, so it’s time to make plans to get more items crossed off . I took the plunge and signed up for a 10k in April. I also have plans to cross an item that involves a swimming pool, It really helps to review your list there might some items you forgot about . It reminded me that I needed to keep working on my wreck this journal so I can finish it and get it crossed off the list . My plans for future list items bring a smile to my face. I can’t wait to cross off another list item and tell you all about it !

Rock on – Christina Epperly
