Bucket list #212 finish a 10k

Hello,my bucket list friends ! As you can tell from the title of this post I just crossed another item off my bucket list and I’m very excited to tell all of you about it ! Here we go!

 

 

Bucket list #212 finish a 10k

I’ve done many 5k races and even the Disneyland half marathon ( You can read about it HERE)  but I had never done a 10k until yesterday. When I decided to do a 10k this year I looked for a race that was close in driving distance,gave out medals at the end and was held on day that I had off. After a little bit of looking I found a race that fit all of my requirements, the SV 10k . The day before the race my mom and I went and picked up our race numbers. I had done a race in the same area before and it started near the park where we picked up our numbers so I thought that’s where this race was going to begin well I was wrong. It was ending at the park I was so confused when we got there but we just followed everyone else and made it to the start on time. Our plan was to walk most of the way and that’s what we did but we also did some short jogging bursts and that helped to improve our time . We were thinking that it would take us around two hours but because of our little jogging bursts we finished in one hour and forty three minutes ! The race  course was pretty awesome we went past some pretty gardens and there were dogs and the beginning of the race !  I was so happy to cross off another item off my list  and I love the medal that they gave out at the end !  It was a fun morning and I’m so glad I got to participate in it !

The Bucket List orange

Hello, my bucket list friends back in 2015 I planted a tree to cross it off my bucket list . ( you can read about it HERE ) It wasn’t just any tree that I planted it  was an orange tree ! Well today I finally ate the first orange from that tree and I’m excited to tell you all about it ! Here we go !

 

 

The Bucket List orange

 

There has been one orange on my bucket list tree for a while. I’ve been waiting for the right time to eat it and today was the day. I simply went over to my tree and gently picked it and when I did a bunch of orange blossoms fell of the tree like confetti. It was like the tree was celebrating me picking the orange. The Orange was imperfect it had some spots but it was from my bucket list tree and that was perfect enough for me. Even though the Orange had been on the tree for a while it still tasted great !   I can’t wait to see if my bucket list tree grows anymore oranges !

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 !
