Hello, my bucket list friends! I recently downloaded this photo editing app called polish. It’s so much fun! They offer all kinds of backgrounds stickers and more! If you want to have fun with your photos I recommend giving this app a try! Here are some of my creations.

More Barbie color reveal!

Hello, my bucket list friends! I’m excited to write this post. I’ve really become a fan of the Barbie color reveal line. Recently I got two more Barbie color reveal dolls and two Barbie color reveal Easter pets. I had a lot of fun seeing what dolls and pets I got. The first doll I revealed had pink hair and polka dots on her clothes. Also her earrings were awesome! The 2nd doll I got was another mermaid doll. She has green and purple hair and a nighttime sky theme. I love both of my new color reveal dolls. As for the Easter pets the process was very similar but except for coming in plastic tubes they came in plastic eggs. After you used warm water to reveal the pets you got you then had to attach the ears to really confirm which animal it was I got two bunnies. I Hope they keep making the Barbie color reveal dolls.

The good things on my mind

Hello,my bucket list friends! I know we often have a tendency to focus on the negative things in life. Lately I’ve been making more of an effort to focus on the positive things in life. I thought it would be fun to put my positive thoughts into a blog post so here it is!

Bath bombs and bows – On a trip to the mall I got some great items at clare’s and Lush. Including two bath bombs, a bubble bar, hair bows, necklaces.

My horse friends – I love that I can walk to a stable by my house and see horses. I’ve loved horses since I was a kid and it so much fun to go on a walk and give them carrots.

Arts and crafts- I recently colored a cute wooden box craft kit from Target. I’ve also been drawing a little bit. I hope to put more designs into my red bubble store.

What positive things have you been thinking about lately?

My February so far

Hello, my bucket list friends! I know we are not very far into February yet but I thought it would be fun to talk about some of my highlights so far.

Walking – I love going on walks and I’ve already gotten a few in this month.

Thrift shopping – I have gone thrift shopping twice this month once to Savers ( You can read about it HERE ) and once to Goodwill. My trip to Goodwill was a quick one. My two favorite things that I got at the Goodwill this time were a foam cross craft kit and a ICarly Bear from Build a Bear workshop.

Two sisters bath bombs – I used another bath bomb from Two Sisters and I absolutely loved it. I look forward to using more bath bombs from this company.

American Girl of the year book – I have started reading Kira’s first book and I’m enjoying it so far. I can’t wait to tell you more about it in my book club post.

Walgreens – I got this tube of cute squishy toys at Walgreens

There you have it my month so far. I hope all of you are enjoying your February!

Things I love November/ December 2020

Hello,my bucket list friends! My life has been pretty busy lately so I decided it would be best to put the things I love post for November and December together. Without any more delay let’s get to it!

November 2020

Going to Seattle! – This was definitely the best layover I’ve ever had. I loved seeing the Space Needle. ( You can read about it HERE)

Going to Hawaii – This was a super fun family vacation and of course Hawaii is beautiful. ( You can read about it HERE)

Getting my doll Coral back from the doll hospital – I sent my doll coral to the American Girl doll hospital to have her leg attached and in November she returned. I was happy to have her back home.

Jellyfish craft – I enjoyed doing this craft kit. you can read about it HERE

Peppermint flavored popcorn – I really liked this fun and festive snack. ( You can read about it HERE )

Breyer horse – yesterday I bought a breyer horse at a local toy store. not only is it super cute it comes with a bracelet as well.

Going to a playground – I didn’t get a chance to write about this on my blog but I was super excited when I found a playground that was open and I got to go down the slide.

Our Christmas decorations – I really loved our outside lights this year. Our tree was also pretty awesome too. You can read about it Here and Here

Self timer photoshoot challenge !

Hello, my bucket list friends! I love watching fun youtube videos and not too long ago one of my favorite video creators did a video where they took self timer photos. ( You can watch it HERE) I really liked the idea of taking self timer photos so I decided to try it out for myself. I can’t wait to show you the fun photos I took so let’s get to it!

Self timer photoshoot challenge !

For my first self timer photo shoot I decided to cover my bed with stuffed animals! I loved the way I set everything up but doing this photoshoot was harder then I thought it would be. I thought I had a tripod that would work with my phone but it turns out I didn’t so I put my phone on a stack of books. I had fun coming up with different poses but I did get tired of having to reset the timer. Even with those challenges I’m happy with the way the photos turned out. Here are three of my favorites!

For my next photoshoot I decided to head outside to my deck. The weather was perfect for photos and I had a fun time choosing different spots on my deck to take photos from. Here are three of my favorite outdoor photos!

For my last photoshoot I decided to take photos in the car. I had my neighbor’s dog with me that day so I included him in the photos . It was hard to get him to look at the camera but he is cute no matter what direction he is looking in ! Here are three of my favorites!

There you have it my self timer photoshoot challenge! Overall this was fun to do and definitely worth trying!

Things I love October 2020

Hello,my bucket list friends! It’s hard to believe that’s it’s November already! Before we get much further into November let’s take a look back at the good things October had in store!

Going to the pumpkin patch – I had a fun time picking out the perfect pumpkins with my mom. ( You can read about it HERE)

Getting my nails done – I had a great time getting my nails done with my friend. I loved the way they looked! ( You can read about it HERE)

Arts and crafts! I always love arts and crafts but this month I had a lot of fun decorating my pumpkins and trying out mess free glitter art! ( You can read about it HERE and HERE)

Dressing up as a unicorn for Halloween ! – On Halloween I worked most of the day but I was able to dress up. I loved getting to wear something different to work. It was fun to wear a unicorn horn all day !

I love my glittery nails and other thoughts :)

Hello,my bucket list friends ! Today is one of those days when I have a lot of random things that I want to write about so I decided to put them all in one post. Here we go.

I love my glittery nails ! My friend Amy and I got our nails done together. She got this beautiful blue color on her toes and I got pink and purple with glitter on my finger nails. I’m so glad that I decided to get a gel manicure because my nails still look amazing over a week after I got them done!

I can’t wait for my doll to return from the hospital. – I know that’s a weird sentence to read but I had to send one of my American Girl dolls off for repairs. I think it was last week or maybe the week before I sent my doll Coral to the American Girl doll hospital. I bought Coral off eBay earlier this year. After not having her for very long her leg fell off. Doll limbs can get loose over time and fall off. I’ve been meaning to send her to the hospital for a while now and I can’t wait for her to return!

I have had some good thrift finds lately. – I love going thrift shopping and lately I’ve been finding some great stuff such as American Girl stickers and books, arts and crafts kits, Beanie Babies and some nice clothes. Going thrift shopping is like going on a treasure hunt I never know what I’m going to find!

I went walking on one of my favorite trails – Due to weather,smoke and work schedules I haven’t been able to go on as many walks as I would like to. Getting to walk on my favorite trails again was great! It was a beautiful day !

Thanks for reading ! Rock On- Christina Epperly

My 30th birthday

Hello, my bucket list friends! On Wednesday I turned 30 and I had a really great day celebrating! I can’t wait to tell you all about it so let’s jump on in !

The first thing I want to say is thank you everyone who wished me a happy birthday! I felt so loved on my birthday. I’m so blessed to have many wonderful people in my life. My plan for my birthday was to go to the Dollar Tree and buy 30 things for my 30th birthday then go to savers to get some books from their very impressive book section. Before going out to dinner that evening. Things at the Dollar Tree started off pretty well but I kept losing count of how many items I had. I ended up with more then 30 items but I had fun and that’s what matters! Then it was time for Savers. The first thing I noticed when I walked into Savers is that the book section had moved. Luckily it was just as big as it used to be. We spent a good amount of time looking through the books and my mom and I found some good books. I got a few other things at savers but mainly books. We made a stop for coffee before heading home. After spending a little time at home it was time to go out to dinner. We met Amy there.  I was so happy to see her!  Also dinner was amazing! I had a really wonderful birthday. I hope the first year of my 30s is wonderful too.
