Apple Pie Kit Kat review

Hello, my bucket list friends ! It’s time for another fun food review! Let’s dive on in!

While I was in Walgreens I saw Apple pie flavored Kit Kats up by the register and I knew I just had to try it! I love trying fun candy flavors and this one looked like it would be fun to review. I love the design and colors on the packaging. As for the taste it was light and sweet. I think I was expecting some vanilla flavor because the picture on the packaging had a picture of pie with ice cream on it. There was no vanilla flavor but I still enjoyed it.This candy bar has a nice apple flavor that wasn’t overpowering. I recommend trying this especially if you love apples!

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 !

Things I love September 2020

Hello, my bucket list friends ! Well it’s time to wave goodbye to another month! This month was very busy and not always the good kind of busy. Like having to wait in a very long line at the DMV. However there were some things I loved this month so let’s take a look at thoes!

Things I love September 2020

Books – Reading is becoming one of my favorite hobbies. On my latest trip to Savers I got ten books! ( You can read about it HERE) I’ve actually already finished the book I’m going to use for October’s book club. I can’t wait to discuss it with all of you.

Childhood memories – I’ve been going through old photos a lot lately. I wanted to gather phots to use for throwback Thursday . I really enjoy looking at these photos it’s like traveling through time.

Kid’s toothpaste – I’m a kid at heart so it’s no surprise that I love useing kids tooth paste! Having cute pictures on the tooth paste tube makes brushing my teeth more fun! Plus I can buy it at the Dollar Tree.

Going to the mall – I went to the mall with my friend Amy one day before work. Yay for Jamba juice and Claire’s!

There you have it some of the things I loved in September 2020! Thanks for reading and 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.

I guess I’m 30 now ?!?

Hello,my bucket list friends! As I sit here writing this post I’m less then an hour away from turning 30. When you read this post I will be 30. I just have to say that it feels weird. I know that turning 30 is not a bad thing but it feels really strange. I don’t know how time flew by so fast. As I enter this milestone year I find myself reflecting on my life. I’ve been thinking about all my accomplishments, my failures, and my growth as a person. As I analyze my life I can’t help but feel like I’ve done a pretty good job. Now, let me make this clear I have made many mistakes and I’m far from perfect. That being said I can’t help but think about how much I’ve learned in these 30 years. If I listed everything I have learned this post would be a novel. However I will say that one of the most important things that I have learned is how to love myself. God provides me with unconditional love but I had a hard time loving my imperfect self. I’m happy to say that now I love myself and I want to help others learn to love themselves as well. Another life lesson I have learned is this world is a messy place but it is also full of good, you just have to know where to look. As I start this next decade of my life I can’t help but be thankful for all the wonderful people in my life that have helped me to learn and grow. I don’t have enough time to list everyone but I just want to say thank you to everyone who has helped me this past 30 years.Well there you have it that is what is going through my head as I’m about to turn 30. Thank you all so much for reading this blog!

Idaho vacation summer 2020 part 4

Hello, my bucket list friends! It’s time for the 4th and final part of my Idaho summer 2020 vacation posts! In this post I do one of my favorite things swimming! Without anymore delay Let’s jump on in to this post!

Idaho Vacation summer 2020 part 4

This post starts out on July 3rd. We didn’t have any solid plans for the 4th of July so I asked my grandparents if we could have a a small get together at their house with local family and they said yes! It was a very small get-together but I wanted to decorate like it was a big party. My mom and I went to the Dollar Tree for decorations. There were not many 4th of July decorations left at the store but we were able to get a a few things like  July 4th window stickers! After the Dollar Tree we went to get food for our  July 4th celebration. My favorite food item that we got were fourth of July cupcakes! After we finished getting everything we needed for our celebration we went to Starbucks and got coffee. That night we walked to the pool by grandparent’s house. We had a really fun time at the pool. There were a few other people there when we first got to the pool but because it was nighttime people started leaving and before we knew it we were the only people there! It was so nice having the pool to ourselves! I really love going swimming and I don’t get to do it very often so that made it extra special! It was overall a really great day now it’s time to tell you about our July 4th celebration. Before our celebration I had a lot of fun decorating the house.  I really liked putting up the window stickers even though not all of them stayed up! My grandparent’s enjoyed our celebration and our family liked the food that we picked out. The best part was that we didn’t have to go anywhere to see fireworks they were all around us!  I had fun taking pictures of the fireworks . The next morning we took a very early flight home.  I had a fun time in Idaho and I can’t wait to tell you about my next adventure.

Idaho vacation summer 2020 part 2

Hello, my bucket list friends! Welcome to part 2 of my latest Idaho adventure! In this post I’ll tell you about a thrift shopping trip and a really beautiful place that I got to explore for the first time. Without any more delay let’s get to it!

 

Idaho vacation summer 2020 part 2

On July first my mom and I had a fun day out. First we went to the Goodwill for some thrift shopping. I was able to find some great items including a bag of three Beanie Babies, some shirts a book and two Barbie dolls. After our shopping trip we headed to the Idaho botanical gardens. Neither of us had been here before and I was excited to check it out. Let me start off by saying that I’m so glad we decided to go here. There was just so much to explore including, a fish pond, a swing and of course lots of beautiful flowers. As you enter the gardens there is a large sculpture of a tree made from found objects. It’s worth a good look before you move onto the rest of the garden. It was on the warm side when we were there but there were a good amount of shady places in the garden. There was just so much to look at including quite a few art pieces. I have a fun picture of myself standing in a big nest! If you are a lover of the outdoors I highly recommend this place but remember to bring your walking shoes and your camera. I got so may great pictures in the garden. It would be a great place for a photo shoot. The gardens did have there own store but it was closed while we were there. I hope it is open the next time I visit the garden. I hope you enjoyed part 2 of my adventure this so more to come it part 3!
