Hello, my bucket list friends I’m going to be honest. I’m really loving my life right now. There is something so beautiful about not having to wake up to an alarm clock and rush out the door. This week is so normal and so special at the same time. I already wrote about my Monday ( You can read about it HERE) I thought it would be fun to write a little something about each of my days this week. I do this a lot for weekends. However, this week is different then how my weeks have been so I decided the weekdays needed a blog post this week.
Tuesday- I went into my new job at Urban Remedy! I have really grown to be a huge fan of selfcare and this company is all about self care and health. I’m so happy to be working here!
Wednesday- This day was so amazing that it also got its own blog post! ( You can read about it HERE) The highlights of this day were seeing my wonderful friend, going to a local thrift store and getting my nails done. I also published a post on Vocal Media.
Thursday- I shared my vocal media post on my social media and it got a pretty good response. You can read it HERE) That night I went to Starbucks and Walgreens. At Walgreens I got a few things including popcorn, a drink and lip balm from Burts Bees.
Friday- I went into my job at Urban Remedy to do some training. It went really well. I’m really happy that I got a job here. After work I went to Whole Foods. I got some yummy stuff there including a box of my favorite fruit snacks that come with these cool trading cards.
Hello, my bucket list friends! Another weekend is almost gone. This weekend went by really fast overall. Yesterday, I did an eight hour CPR class that I needed for work. It was slow at some points but it was very informative. I got coffee that morning before the class and after the class I went to Starbucks again. After Starbucks I went to Whole Foods and then Taco Bell.I spent the rest of the night relaxing Then that brings us to today. I took it pretty easy today. I wrote another article for Vocal Media and did some shopping for the week ahead. Oh and I got coffee today too. I’m sure that before I know it I’ll be writing a post about next weekend! Have a great week!
Hello, my bucket list friends! Sometimes I have a bunch of things that I want to write about but I can’t think of a way to put them all together. This is one of those times so I figured I would do one of those posts where I talk about all the things that are on my mind at the moment. Without further introduction let’s jump on in!!
I love my Tie-dye crocs – let’s start off with the title. I got my second pair of crocs recently. I ordered them from Poshmark. They are used but the seller said she only wore them when she worked at an ice cream store so they are still in pretty good shape. Plus they were a lot less expensive then a new pair of crocs would be. I love the bright colors! I think crocs are my new favorite shoe. I also bought new new purse from the same seller I needed a bigger one and this one she had was absolutely perfect!
I finally won a raffle prize at the Firemen’s BBQ- I have been going been going to this fundraiser since I was a kid. In addition to the BBQ they always have a raffle. I’ve tried many times to win a raffle prize but I never did until Sunday. I ended up winning two prizes a Disney princess doll and a gift certificate to a local toy store. They did have an American Girl doll that I really wanted to win but unfortunately I didn’t but I’m happy that I won something.
I’m getting two America girl dolls!! – Even though I didn’t win the American Girl doll at the raffle,I did win an Ebay auction for two American Girl dolls. I’m so excited for them to get here. They are hopefully gonna be delivered today! When they arrive I will officially have four American Girl dolls.
I’m reorganizing my room – Being a collector can be hard when you only have one room for everything! However I’m currently working on reorganizing and I hope to do a room tour post once I get everything how I want it. I’ve ordered some storage things from Amazon and they should be here this week. I can’t wait to show you my room!
I’m trying to write more on Vocal Media – I started writing on Vocal Media this year and I love it. I have written a few short stories and some articles on there and I would love for you to check them out. You can see my profile HERE

At the rate this month is going already Summer will be here before I know it! Anyways let’s get into this month’s highlights so far.
My cousin’s birthday party- On Sunday I had a wonderful time celebrating my amazing cousin’s birthday! We had breakfast,got our nails done, had massages and had cake!! It was a wonderful day!
Teacher appreciation week-this week is teacher appreciation week. It has been really awesome! The school that I work for did a really great job of making me feel appreciated this week. I loved getting small surprises each day at work.
Succulents- I got three succulents. And I can’t wait to plant them when I do I’ll be sure to blog about it!
More Barbie color reveal – On the last day of April I got two more Barbie color reveal dolls at Target. On the first day of May I revealed them. However I did get my first double meaning I already had revealed that same doll before. but the other doll was one that I had been wanting. So it all worked out.
Crocs – I got my first pair of Crocs and I love them! They are so comfortable!
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 !
Hello, my bucket list friends ! Sometimes there is not always one specific thing that comes to your mind to blog about and this is one of those times . When that happens it can be fun to just dump what ever random thoughts you have into a blog post so that’s what I’m doing today enjoy !
Just some random thoughts 3/18/2019
I love the Jewelry I bought at Claire’s yesterday- Yesterday I went to the mall and I went one of my favorite stores Claire’s. They were having an awesome buy 3 get 3 free sale. I got some super cute necklaces and earnings I’m even wearing one of the necklaces today.
2. I love the weather right now – It is so beautiful and sunny right now ! The sunny weather is like an instant mood booster for me . There has been a lot of rain this year and that’s a good thing but I’m so happy for sunny days !
3. Summer is on it’s way – Summer is my favorite season and when the weather is warm it makes me think of summer. I’m very excited summer is coming soon ! I can’t wait for the adventures I will have this summer !
Hello, my bucket list friends ! This week I did something new and exciting I got my arms waxed ! To learn more about my experience just keep reading !
Wax on arm hair off !
You really never know what the day will bring when you wake up in the morning and I didn’t think that I was going to get waxed that day but I did. I’ve mentioned on this blog that I’ve started a new job doing massage and front desk . Well one really cool thing about my new job is that there is an amazing lady who runs her waxing business in our office. I had never been professionally waxed before but I had used wax strips from the drug store. I had been considering get my arms waxed since I started working there but I hadn’t taken The plunge. Untill Wednesday at
the end of my shift I decided to schedule an appointment to get my arms waxed but it turned out she had time right then. So in true bucket lister style I went for it and I’m so gald I did. There was hardly any pain at all and I love how smooth my arms are . I didn’t dislike my arms before but now I really love them. Even though this was not a bucket list item it gave me a similar feeling to crossing an item off. It was exciting to try something new. I love spontaneous adventures and I’m very happy I got to have one this week !
Hello, my bucket list friends . Last month I wrote quite a few posts about my TMS treatments for OCD . If you want to read them just look at my posts on this blog from February 2019. Anyways, I thought it would be a good idea to give an update on how I’m doing since treatment.Hold on tight and here we go !
Dear OCD, I’m in charge now
In my previous posts about TMS I wrote about some of the changes that occurred during treatments. OCD began to lose it’s grip on me and I was feeling more in control then ever before. Well, I’m happy to say that things have continued to improve. Before receiving the TMS treatments, OCD controlled a large part of my day. It was always controlling what I could and could not wear, what songs I could and couldn’t listen to, what order I had to put the blankets on my bed and many more things that impacted my everyday life. I felt anxiety that if I didn’t follow OCD’s orders bad things would happen . I never truly realized just how much of my time that OCD took from me. Now, things are very different I’m in charge now. I’m able to make my own everyday choices with feeling little to no anxiety. If OCD stars to give me orders I remind it that I’m in charge now and I do what I want to do. I was so used to following OCD’s orders that now sometimes I have to stop and ask myself what I want to do . I feel so free now! Now , don’t get me wrong life is not perfect and it never will be but I feel a lot better now that I’m free from OCD’s control. OCD still sneaks in with it’s unwanted thoughts from time to time but I can dismiss these thoughts faster and easier then ever before ! I’m so happy that I took part in the study at Stanford. Things are looking up.
Hello, My bucket list friends ! When posting on social media I sometimes use the hashtag bucket list life but what does that really mean ? I thought it would be a good idea to take a further look at this and also to give all of you some suggestions on how to live the bucket list life on a average day .
Living the bucket list life
To me Living the bucket life life is more then just crossing items off your bucket list, It is an attitude or maybe even a life style . To me a bucket list is not just a list of things to do in your lifetime. It’s the idea that life is really meant to be lived to the fullest .Let’s face it all to often our lives become a retinue of the same things over and over again. We get stressed and grumpy and we often forget to take time to do the things that we really enjoy, the things that make us smile and help us to truly love life . So how do you live the bucket list life ? Simply put you take time for you and the people and things you love . It’s about trying to mix up your routine to keep life exciting ! Yes, I’ll be honest some days are not that great and that’s OK. Living the bucket list life is not a solution to all of life’s problems but it is a way to make life a little happier . Below I’ve listed a few ways on how to live the bucket list life !
Try something new – Instead of getting the same thing for lunch try something new or wear clothes that you haven’t worn in a while mixing things up just a little bit will add a little bit of excitement to your day .
Do at least one thing you love everyday – It could be something as simple as watching a show you like or listening to your favorite playlist or setting some time aside for a hobby you enjoy like drawing or dancing . Taking time to do something you love will add a little boost of happiness to your day .
Day Dream – OK, I know it sounds a little silly but seriously instead of repeating your to-do list or thinking about all the bills you have to pay have a little fun with your thoughts ! Think about what you want to cross off your list next , your favorite memories , the best vacation you’ve even been on , or the trip you want to take next . Taking some time for positive thoughts will help to put you in a positive mood even if your not crossing an item off your list that day .
I hope you enjoyed reading my tips for living the bucket list life ! Have fun crossing off items everyone !
Hello , my bucket list friends ! This post is going to be a bit of a rant but have you ever been sick at a very inconvenient time ? I mean I guess there is never a good time to get sick but there are sometimes that are better or worse than others .When I was a kid my family got the flu during Christmas time . It was definitely not fun at all . Well currently I’m dealing with a very inconvenient sickness . On Tuesday I had to leave work early because I was feeling so sick . I was also unable to go to my second job that afternoon . Yesterday I missed an appointment and another shift of work . This morning I missed another shift at one of my jobs .In addition to missing all that work,on Tuesday night I was in horrible pain my abdomen was hurting so bad I thought I was going to have to going to the ER but fortunately the pain decreased and I was able to get some sleep. yesterday I was feeling very week and I didn’t to much but sleep and lay on the couch. Being sick is never fun but it’s hard for me to miss all this work when Christmas is coming and I have gifts to buy . The good news is I slept pretty well last night and I’m feeling ok today not 100% better but I feel well enough to make it to my afternoon job ! I’m excited to get back to work after being out for awhile . Stay Well my friends !
