Virtual 5k bucket list #290

Hello, my bucket list friends! I’m excited to say that I’ve crossed another item off of my bucket list! I enjoy doing 5ks so I was excited to see what doing a virtual 5k would be like. I did my 5k through a website called virtual run. There are many different 5k themes to choose from. I chose the flamingo one because I loved the medal.Once I signed up for the 5k all I had to do was wait for my number and medal to arrive. One thing that I really like about virtual runs is that you can chose your own time and place. You don’t have to get up early or worry about the weather. For my 5k I chose a trail that I’m familiar with and enjoy walking on.I brought my medal and my number with me as I went on one of my favorite walks. I walked most of the way and finished in an hour and ten minutes. I was so happy to put the medal on when I finished. There are many cute medals to chose from I may just have to do another virtual run sometime!

Bucket list #294 Go shopping at the Gilroy Outlets

Hello, my bucket list friends! I’m super happy to say that yesterday I crossed another item off my bucket list. The last time I went to the outlets,a lot of the stores were closed. However this time the stores I wanted to visit were open.My mom and I started our outlet adventure with the Disney store outlet. I’ve been to the Disney store before but not the outlet. They had good deals on a lot of items including some items from the theme parks. My favorite thing that I got was a mouse ear headband that was summer themed. After that we went to Claire’s. This location had a pretty large clearance section I enjoyed looking through all the items especially the ones on sale. I was able to find some really great accessories and one of the best curly straws I’ve ever seen in my life! After those two stores we went to go visit the California welcomeCenter again. I’ve been here once before and I love looking through all the travel brochures that they have. I had a lot of fun crossing this item off my list and I hope to go back to the Gilroy outlets sometime.

Bucket list #297 go to three playgrounds in one day

Hello, my bucket list friends ! I’m very excited to announce that I’ve crossed off my first buck list item of 2021! Monday, I went on an adventure to three local playgrounds. The first park that I went to is one that I go to pretty often but it’s been a while since I’ve gone on the playground. The second park I visited I been two once or twice but it’s been over a year. As for the third playground, I can’t remember ever going to it. However I saw it all the time because it by a gas station that we go to. The weather was perfect for crossing off this item. I’m glad I decided to cross this item off .

Seattle fun!

Hello,my bucket list friends ! I’m currently on vacation in Hawaii as I write this post. Before I got to Hawaii I had what I’m calling the best layover ever! When my parents and I arrived in Seattle we were unable to continue on to Hawaii due to their new travel requirements. We ended up spending the night in Seattle so we could have time to meet the new requirements. Since it was morning when we arrived in Seattle I saw it as an opportunity to explore the city and even cross some items off my bucket list.

Seattle fun!

Since we only had one day to explore Seattle, my mom and I decided to get a combination ticket that would let us explore two different attractions. The first attraction the we went to was the Space Needle. The views of the city from the Space Needle are simply amazing! It’s a great place to take pictures and it also has a really big gift shop! After exploring the Space Needle we went to the Chihuly garden and glass museum. The art here is very beautiful. I loved the colors and the creativity. I highly recommend both of these attractions if you visit Seattle.

While I was in Seattle I crossed three items off my bucket list! Here are the items I crossed off my list!

#230 Drink coffee in Seattle

#240 Go the Space Needle in Seattle

#285 Visit  Chihuly Garden and Glass

Fun bucket list art !!

Hello,my bucket list friends! I’m excited to tell you that I’ve crossed another item off my bucket list ! This item was pretty easy to cross off and it was also a lot of fun! Without anymore delay let’s dive on in!

Fun Bucket list art !!

The item that I recently crossed off is number 231 make a sharpie tie-dye shirt. I saw this craft on Pinterest and I thought that it would be a fun addition to my list. For this craft all I needed was a white shirt , Sharpie markers and rubbing alcohol. I started off by drawing on the shirt. I let my imagination run wild. I loved how colorful the shirt was when I finished drawing on it. Then it was time to spray the shirt with rubbing alcohol to make the colors spread out like tie-dye. As I sprayed the shirt I noticed that some colors seemed to spread out more than others. I probably should have done this project outside because when I sprayed the shirt it soaked through the blanket on my bed. Anyways I like the way the shirt looks and I’m glad I did this art project. Thanks for reading!

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 !
