Hello, my bucket list friends! I’ve been meaning to write this post all week. On Sunday I had the best dinner of my life! My family and I went to this restaurant called Grand View. As the name suggests the views are something to write home about! Everything about this restaurant is beautiful. Now, the food somehow managed to be just as good as the veiws. After going over our choices,we decided to do the tasting menu. At first I didn’t think I’d be able to do it because I’m a vegetarian. However the amazing staff members told me that it would be no problem to do the tasting menu for a vegetarian. I was excited to see what food I would get to try. Each course that they brought was a wonderful surprise. This was the fanciest food that I have ever had. It was so amazing! The tasting menu allowed me to try things that I normally wouldn’t order like beats. I felt like an A- list celebrity that night. I couldn’t help but think that this is what celebrities must eat like!
Hello, my bucket list friends! When I was in Walgreens the other day ,I saw an interesting candy bar and knew I just had to try it. It was a mocha flavored Kit Kat bar. I like Kit Kat bars and I love coffee so I was very interested to see how this candy bar would taste. I’ll get right to the point I loved this candy bar. The mocha taste was simply amazing. I felt like I was enjoying a fancy and expensive candy bar. If you love coffee I highly recommend trying this candy if you get the chance.
Hello, my bucket list friends! Yesterday I went to Whole Foods on my lunch break and I saw something I just had to try, white chocolate peppermint popcorn! This fun flavor is made by Skinny Pop. I Love peppermint. I also love trying new peppermint flavored snacks. So without any more delay let’s dive on in!
When I first opened the bag ,the popcorn looked normal but upon closer inspection. I did notice little red spots on the popcorn. As for the taste I’m just gonna say it ,I love this popcorn! It has a perfect salty sweet taste. It has the right amount of peppermint without being overpowering. As you can probably guess I do recommend trying this snack.
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!
Hello, my bucket list friends ! During my amazing sleepover weekend with my amazing awesome friend ,I crossed another item off my list . ( you can read about the other list item HERE ) Now without further delay here is the second item that I crossed off in 2019 !
Bucket list #42 have a pizza eating contest
My friend and I had gotten two pizzas for our sleepover we ate one Friday night and saved the next one for Saturday . I asked my friend if she wanted to have a pizza eating contest and because she is so awesome she said yes . We had cooked the pizza the night before and when we put in a container to go in the fridge we didn’t use a pizza cutter so the pieces were all uneven. So it wasn’t a fair contest but we didn’t really care . I finished my piece first and won but it was smaller then my friend’s piece. I took a video of us having the contest and it is a pretty funny video at lest I think so . I might upload the video to You Tube soon but in the meantime take a look and some stills from the video.
Cheers to another list item being crossed off my bucket list !
Hello, my bucket list friends ! Some of you may recall a post I wrote in September about our refrigerator breaking and all the problems that we had trying to get it fixed then trying to get it replaced . ( you can read about it here ) At the end of that post the issue was still on going although we did get a mini refrigerator as a temporary fix but the saga continued until October 31st when we finally got a new refrigerator ! Now it’s time for the happy ending !
The end of the great refrigerator saga of 2018
After another failed delivery and feeling like we may never get a new refrigerator October 31st was the day we finally go a new one ! It was a long stressful road but at last it had a happy ending ! The new fridge is up and running and I’m ready for a new box of Ice cream bars! It’s so great to buy whatever I want at the store without worrying about fitting everything into the mini refrigerator . After not having a full sized refrigerator since August I’m very happy to have one now ! Here are some pictures of our new beautiful refrigerator.
Hello, My bucket list friends I had on 28th birthday on August 26th and it was a wild one ! I really didn’t see it turning out the way it did but that’s life for you ! Hang on tight and I’ll tell about my crazy birthday !
My 28th birthday and a trip to the ER
My birthday started with a trip to Peet’s coffee and petting some very cute dogs there before heading to work . While I was at work my amazing friend brought me cake ! After work I went out to eat with my family we went to PF Chang’s. The food was so good and the desserts were wonderful ! After dinner we were driving back home and a pain that I had been having throughout the day began to get worse and worse . It was soon unbearable about an 8 on the pain scale . I didn’t want to go to the ER because it is expensive but due to the amount of pain I was in I didn’t have a choice . I’m not sure what time it was when I got to the ER maybe around 10 pm . Right away the tests began to find a source of the pain . After hours of doing tests and waiting the ultrasound showed that I has a cyst on my left ovary. It is about 5 1/2 CM. long . It was decided that I did not need anything further right then but that needed to talk to my doctor in a day or so . I was given some pain medication and after 3 AM I left the ER. The issue with the cyst is still on going . I’m going to be talking to a surgeon next week but I’ll write more about that another time . Overall it was a birthday I wont soon forget !

Hello, my beautiful bucket list friends! Here we are in the last month of 2017 and I have quite a few blog posts that I want to write and videos that I want to make before we jump on into 2018 so get ready for a lot of updates from this professional dreamer.
This past thanksgiving was very different for me, it was the first thanksgiving that I have ever celebrated outside of California. The biggest difference is that it was colder then California thanksgiving but I’m getting ahead of myself. Let’s go back to Los Angeles, the day after I crossed #139 (go beach hopping) off my list. I woke up very early that Tuesday morning to go LAX, so I could take my first flight of two flights that I would take that day. I got to the airport with plenty of time to spare so I had all the time I needed to find my gate, eat and charge up my phone before getting on my first flight to Seattle. After a two-hour ride I was in the state of Washington for the first time ever. When I arrived, one of the first things I did was look at my flight information on my phone. I was confused at first but it didn’t take long for me to realize that my 2nd flight (the one that would take me to Idaho) was delayed by about 3 hours. Needless to say, I was not very happy about this, but life happens. One of the worst things about being stuck in the airport was looking outside and seeing the awful weather outside but from what I hear that’s just how it is in Seattle. I was really missing the California sunshine at this point . The Disneyland plane that was parked by the windows was able to put a smile on my face, but I had plenty of time before the now delayed plane was ready to go. So I did the best thing I could to lift my mood I bought myself some food, a snow globe and a post card. After my little shopping trip, I relaxed the best I could until it was time for my last flight of the day. When I finally got to Idaho I was tired but excited to see my family and Jewels one of my favorite dogs in the whole world. After going out for a great dinner and spending time with family I crashed. The next day was the day before Thanksgiving so it was a very busy day, but I was able to stop by the Goodwill and get some cool stuff including some My Little Pony toys. It was a fun day filled with lots of shopping, food and family fun. I had a lot of new my little pony toys before the day ended.
The next day it was time to celebrate thanksgiving with some of the people that I love most.Even tough I was in a different time zone than normal. Thanksgiving was pretty much the same. There was lots of food and time to catch up with those you don’t get to see often. After a great day of celebrating with family and eating lots of wonderful food. It was time to get ready for my 4th and final fight of the trip. The flight back home was fast and before I knew it I was back with my cats in California. It was a good but short trip to Idaho. When I go back I should have more time to explore and maybe even cross off a list item or two.
Hello my bucket list friends . As you know each month I’m coming up with a different comfort zone buster . To help me complete my news years goal . This month I decide to go vegan . This is a comfort zone buster for me because even though I am a vegetarian so giving up meat is something that I did over four years ago, I still eat dairy pretty much every day. I’m going to tell you right now that I did not stay with this comfort zone buster for the whole month. after two weeks, I gave in and ate some chocolate but I’m going to tell you about the two weeks I spent being vegan. On my first day of being vegan I started off the day with toast and almond butter. I was off to a good start and things didn’t seem so hard just a few changes like switching to a different brand of energy bar that did not have dairy and getting my veggie bowl at Chipotle without cheese. it was sometimes hard to say no to donuts and other treats but I stuck with it for two weeks until I gave in to chocolate. I would like to try being vegan again sometime because there are many wonderful vegan foods out there and shopping for vegan food is actually very easy. I just have to say that vegan ice cream is amazing! Also, some frozen yogurt places offer nondairy flavors so I was still able to enjoy creating my own frozen yogurt creation I think I will keep this challenge for next year. Rock on – Christina Epperly
