Hello, my bucket list friends ! On Saturday I had a fun adventure with my mom and my friend Amy. It all started when my mom and I met Amy outside of the Goodwill. I was excited to see what we could find. I was a able to get a few fun items on this thrift trip. Some of my favorite items that I got were a Vermont Teddy Bear, an American girl cookbook, and a make your own puzzle art kit. After our thrift store adventure. Amy took us to her favorite coffee place called coffee cat. Their coffee was so amazingly good I can’t wait to go there again. After that we had one more thing to do. Amy took us to one of her favorite hiking spots that had amazing views. I had a fun time exploring a new place. I hope all of you are having wonderful days as well.
Hello, my bucket list friends! Friday was one of my days off from work this week and it turned out be a really good day so I decided to write a post about it! First things first I got an article published on Vocal Media! Blogging helped me to find my love for writing and now I don’t want to stop! I would love to be a professional writer one day. ( You can read my Vocal article HERE) Also on my day off I went to two of my favorite places Starbucks and the Dollar Tree. I got coffee from Starbucks and walked around with my mom and the neighbor’s dog at a small park. Then it was time to go to the Dollar Tree. At the Dollar Tree, I got some fun craft kits. The Dollar Tree already has some of their Easter stuff out and I just had to get some of the Easter themed craft kits! I also got some Crayola heart shaped bath bombs. I’m excited to use the bath bombs and the craft kits. To sum this all up between getting coffee, going to the Dollar tree, and getting an article published it was a truly wonderful day. I hope all of you are having wonderful days as well.
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 .
Hello,my bucket list friends! I just wrapped up a family vacation to Hawaii. It was my first time going to Hawaii and I can’t wait to tell you about the adventures I had. Let’s get to it!
After our layover in Seattle. My parents and I flew to Hawaii. My sister had arrived the day before so we met her at the hotel. That evening we walked to a nearby shopping center for dinner. We ate at a movie theater that was also an awesome restaurant. I had a really good veggie burger there. After dinner we went to this cute little market. They sold some really great souvenirs there. The next day we went to volcanoes national park I highly recommend visiting there if you ever find yourself on the big island. There were these really awesome steam vents that were sure to warm you up and fog up your glasses at the same time. While walking on certain trails at the park it felt like I was walking in the rainforest! Another one of my favorite things about this vacation was the pools at our hotel. I love going swimming so it was awesome having access to swimming pools especially an infinity pool. Our Hotel was also right on the beach. One day we rented snorkel gear and went snorkeling on the beach. We also went on a boat to do a Manta Ray snorkel/ dive. My mom and I went snorkeling my dad and sister went diving. It was so amazing to see the huge manta rays up close. Unfortunately I did get sea sick. Another activity I highly recommend is a kayak tour called flumin Kohala. It is a very relaxing ride. Overall it was a great and much needed vacation. Oh and I almost forgot ! I got to go on a coffee tour. It was awesome!
Hello, my bucket list friends ! I thought it would be fun to tell you about my latest adventures. Ready ? Set? Let’s go !!!
My adventure to the pumpkin patch and other fun places
On Saturday my mom and I went to a local pumpkin patch. We went to this location last year and I really like it. It’s on the smaller side and that’s one of the things I like about it. Also the crowds are pretty low compared to some of the bigger pumpkin patches I’ve been too. I enjoyed taking pictures in this pumpkin patch . I also found the perfect pumpkins to decorate. After the pumpkin patch we went to the Dollar Tree. I haven’t been to this location in a while but I’m really glad that I went because I finally got the glow in the dark beads I’ve been wanting! After that we went to Michaels to buy supplies to decorate our pumpkins with. While we were in Michaels I spent a good amount of time looking at the Christmas stuff. I know it’s October but I can’t wait for Christmas time to begin. I got blue and green paint for my pumpkins I also got a cute craft kit and a few other fun things . In my next post I’ll talk about decorating my pumpkins! Thanks for reading!

Hello, my bucket list friends! Welcome to the last part of my Montana adventure. I’m excited to tell you about the last part of this fun vacation so let’s get to it!
Montana adventure part 4
This was our last full day in Montana. We had a few more things that we wanted to do before we headed for home the next day. Our first stop was the Yellowstone Kelly interpretive site. It’s a interesting place with a lot of information about the man known as Yellowstone Kelly. After exploring the interpretive site we went on a walk before getting an Uber to the Yellowstone county museum. I’m really glad that we went to this museum it was one of our favorites. The museum had exhibits inside and out. My favorites are the big train outside of the museum and the exhibit about baseball inside. This museum also had a gift shop and I got a really nice snow globe.The museum is located next the airport. If you ever fly into Billings and have the time I highly recommend going to see this museum. After our museum it was time for something that we were both really looking forward to massages! We had made appointments at the Massage Envy in Billings for some much needed relaxation. After our massages we went to eat. Then we headed back to our hotel to pack. I really enjoyed my last full day in Montana!
On day eight we spent a lot of time in airports. Our flight wasn’t until evening but check out time was noon so we spent quite a few hours in the Billings airport before our first flight. The one highlight of spending that much time in the Billings airport was getting a huckleberry chocolate bar! Our first flight took us to Salt Lake City. After spending some more time in that airport we were headed for home! I had great time in Montana! Thanks for reading.
Hello,my bucket list friends! Welcome to part 3 of my Montana adventure! I can’t wait to tell you more about this fun adventure so let’s get going!
Montana adventure part 3
On day five we went to check out a Goodwill store in Billings. I like going thrift shopping in different places because every area has a different style. I really enjoyed the Goodwill in Billings. It was very clean and organized. I was able to find some nice things including a book on how to style an American girl doll’s hair, a TY beanie boo puzzle, a shirt with purple stripes and a few DVDs. After thrift shopping we went to down town Billings for lunch. We went to the Montana Brewing Company. I really enjoyed the flat bread that I had there. If you are ever in Billings I would recommend eating here. After lunch we took a walk around downtown. It was a Sunday and most places were closed. It felt weird walking around downtown with hardly anyone else around. That night we went for a walk at a park. The park had a beautiful river but it also had lots of mosquitoes so we had to cut our time there short. Overall it was a nice relaxing day except for the mosquitoes!
On this day we had a booked a tour that would take us to some of the most popular spots around Billings. We got picked in a pretty amazing Jeep. Then we were on to our first stop at the Little Big Horn battle field.This well known historical place is worth a visit. There is a lot to see there. After exploring the battle field we went on to explore Pompey’s Pillar. The pillar is mostly famous because Clark of Luis and Clark carved his name there. The area itself was beautiful and I really enjoyed exploring it! After that we made a quick stop for lunch before going to explore the Moss mansion. Going in to this house was like going back in time. I loved they way it was decorated. They also had a game going on at the mansion where they hid school supplies in each room. I wasn’t keeping count of how many I found but it was fun to see what I could spot as we explored each room. After we finished exploring we stopped at the gift shop. Then it was time to go on to our last stop of the day. The last spot the we explored that day was Pictograph Caves state park. This park is well known for it’s cave paintings. Even though a lot of the cave paintings have chipped away you can still see them a little bit. I heard that you can see them better on a rainy day. Even without the drawings the caves are pretty cool to look at. After our very fun tour we went back to the hotel for some much needed rest! This day was filled with lots of adventure.
Hello, my bucket list friends! I recently came back from a vacation to Montana. My mom and I had a lot of fun. I can’t wait to tell you about my Montana adventure so let’s dive on in!
Montana vacation part 1
Our Montana adventure started with an early morning flight to Salt Lake City. Then after about two hours in the airport my mom and I were on our way to Billings Montana. After a stop at the airport gift shop and a much needed rest in our hotel we decided to go to the Rimrock mall. I was excited to go to the mall because they have a Build a Bear Workshop there and it was open! The locations close me were still closed. When we got to the mall we decided to eat dinner at the food court. We went to a pizza place but I wish we would have gone to this restaurant that looked like it had really good sandwiches but I didn’t see their menu until after we got our pizza. After dinner we headed to Build a Bear Workshop! My mom decided to walk around the mall while I built my bear. This store had not received shipment since March so they did not have the summer bear that I was planning out getting. I decided to get this bear that was covered in colorful hearts. I named my bear sugarplum and picked out a dress for her. She is a very beautiful bear! It was a great first day of vacation!
On day two we went to zoo Montana. When I was doing research on things to do in Billings Montana I was excited to see that there was zoo there and not just any zoo. Zoo Montana is home to mostly rescue animals! When we got to the zoo I was excited to see the animals that lived there but before I saw any animals I quickly discovered just how beautiful this zoo is. There are some really lovely gardens at this zoo. The gardens are definitely worth checking out. Of course the animals are definitely worth seeing as well. One of my favorite animals that I saw at the zoo that day was the grizzly bear. The bear was eating food they had been left right by a viewing area in the enclosure. It was so cool to see the bear up close! I got some great pictures of the very beautiful grizzly bear. Another animal that I enjoyed seeing were the red pandas. One of the pandas was laying in a tree. The other was walking around the enclosure. I was happy that I was able to get some really great pictures of the red pandas. Another cool thing that happened at the zoo was getting to see the tiger move around. I know it doesn’t seem like that big of a deal but tigers sleep a lot so they are usually sleeping when I have seen them before at zoos. I was glad that I was able to get a picture of the tiger standing up. In addition to the gardens and the animals the zoo also had playgrounds! I had a fun time going on the slides with my mom. After exploring the outdoors we went to see the animals that were housed inside. I liked watching the armadillo run around I also enjoyed seeing the Kookaburra. After seeing the animals in the indoor exhibit we went to the gift shop. I got some pretty nice items at the gift shop including a bookmark and a magnet. With the change I got from the gift shop I went to the pressed penny machine. I’ve been getting more into using these machines lately. I was excited to see the zoo also had a photo booth. My mom and I had a fun time taking pictures and I’m happy with how our pictures came out. After the zoo we went to downtown Billings to see the Western Heritage Center. This museum had some very interesting exhibits including one about bees. I also enjoyed the exhibit that was called saints and sinners. This exhibit was filled was interesting stories about some famous women who lived in Montana. Before going to explore more of downtown Billings, we went to the museum’s gift shop where I got this really nice travel cup. While walking around downtown I saw this ice cream shop that I had heard about in a travel video called Big Dipper ice cream. When we went to the ice cream shop I saw that they had a flavor called apple walnut and I just had to try it. It was fun to try something new and I’m glad I did. After the ice cream shop we got some food at a restaurant called Well pared. This healthy restaurant turned out to be my favorite in Billings.
That’s the end of part one of my Montana adventure. Thanks for reading.
Hello, my bucket list friends! I recently got back from visiting family and vacationing in Idaho. I’ve been to Idaho a few times but there is always more to explore! Without further delay let’s dive into part 1 of this adventure.
Idaho vacation Summer 2020 part 1
This trip to Idaho started on June 29th When my mom and I took an evening flight to Boise. When we got to Idaho we went straight to my grandparents house. We stayed up pretty late talking it was a good way to start our trip. The next day we went to the Aquarium of Boise. We had been to the aquarium before but it had been awhile so I wanted to go again. This aquarium is small but it is also a lot of fun. My favorite thing to do here is to pet the rays in the touch tank. There are a few of the rays in there that will swim right up to you so you can pet them. I was also able to get some great pictures of the fish when I was at the aquarium. In addition to some pretty awesome fish this aquarium has other animals such as birds and turtles. I’ve to been this aquarium twice now and it has not been busy when I was there but it may get that way on the weekends. In the gift shop there was a photo booth. My mom and I had fun taking pictures and I’m happy how they turned out. There is also a pressed penny machine in the gift shop. I had put change in my purse in case I came across any penny machines while I was in Idaho and I’m glad I did! After I had a flat penny I bought a special bracelet to put the penny in. I also got an aquarium of Boise magnet. After the aquarium my grandparents took us to one of their favorite restaurants called Ling & Louie’s and I have to say that it was really good. The next day we went and explored a place we had never been to before. I can’t wait to tell you all about it in part 2. There you have it part 1 of my latest trip to Idaho!
