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 ! As some of you may know I’m a big kid at heart that loves toys. Recently I got to play with scribble scrubbies a toy that I had been wanting to try for a while . I can’t wait to tell you all about this fun a creative toy ! Here we go .
scribble scrubbies !
I’ve known about Scribble Scubbies for a while and I’ve really been wanting to try them . This toy is made by Crayola. Scribble Scrubbies are fuzzy animals that you can color with markers then scrub them off and color them again. I got a set of two scribble Scrubbies on Saturday and I had a single scribble scrubby that I bought back around December. I was excited to color all three scribble Scrubbies ! I started with the bird from the set of two that I bought at CVS. I noticed right away that the animals were fuzzy and not smooth. I think the fuzzy texture helps to keep the color on until you wash it off. I had a fun time decorating the bird . Some of the marker rubbed off the bird and on to my jeans but it’s washable so I wasn’t worried about it. Next I scribbled on the Zebra that came in the pack of two. Then it was time to color the poodle that came in the single pack. I enjoyed letting my creativity go wild as I scribbled on the animals. When It was time to wash them off I got the brushes that came with the animals. It was fun to scrub the animals with the brushes but water got most of the marker off on it’s own. When I was done washing them you could see a little bit of marker left but I was happy with how easily most of the color washed out . I’m really happy I got to try Scribble scrubbies . I wonder what toy or craft I’ll try next ! Rock on – Christina Epperly
Hello, my bucket list friends ! Last Saturday was a really fun day. I spent it with two of my favorite people doing some of the things I enjoy most . Without further delay here we go !
One great day !
My great day started by waking up with my friend Amy all ready in the house. She had spent the night before and we had a good time watching movies until we got tired . Around noon with met a friend of mine in town. Then we all walked to a local thrift store. The thrift store closes pretty early in the day so we didn’t have much time there but we were able to find some pretty cool things. Both of my friends found a book or two and I got some books, a Barbie doll , a craft kit and a Disneyland zip up sweatshirt. As we were getting ready to get in line to pay, Amy saw the sweatshirt and knew I would love it. I quickly tired it on since it was a smaller size then I normally wear. I was so happy that it fit and was only a little tight. After that we headed to lunch at a restaurant that we all three enjoy. Lunch was awesome we knew the food there was good but it was also nice to just to sit down and talk for awhile. After that we went to another place that we all like to go to called Petroglyph. At this art studio you choose a ceramic piece to paint then pick it up later. All three of us chose animals to paint. I chose a duck and my friends chose a porcupine and a turtle. We had a good time choosing paint for our creations and painting them. Everyone’s creation turned out beautiful if you ask me! We had had two more stops before we called it a day , a coffee shop and the candy store ! Which I think is a perfect way to end a fun filled day ! So, there you have it my great day ! I hope all of you are having great days as well. Rock On – Christina Epperly
Hello , my bucket list friends ! Yesterday, my friend and I did a paint night by Yay Maker. for those of you don’t know what a paint night or Yay maker is let me tell you. It’s basically an art class where everyone is making the same painting. An instructor leads the group in a step by painting class. It was a lot of fun and I can’t wait to tell you more ! Let’s get going !
Fun with Yay Maker !
My friend and I signed up for this class a while ago but when yesterday finally came, I thought we were going to miss it . There were two accidents on the highway and that made traffic awful ! I was so upset because I knew we were going to be late and I wasn’t sure if they would let us join the class but they did ! The only thing that happened because we were late is that we didn’t get to sit together but that was ok because our paintings were a surprise to each other ! Once I sat down it only took a little while for me to catch up to the rest of the class. The hardest part for me was getting the turtles head to look how it was supposed to. It was also ok if you didn’t follow the directions exactly. In the original painting the turtle had a big flower on it’s back but I ended up doing something different and it turned out really cool . There were also other people in the class including my friend who did something different with the design on the turtle’s back. Once I got over the stress of being late, I had a lot of fun letting my creativity flow ! It was cool to look around and other peoples creativity as well ! Overall it was a fun experience and I recommend doing it of you get a chance.
Hello, my bucket list friends on Monday night I got to go see the remake of the movie Dumbo. I’m huge Disney fan and the previews for this remake looked really good. I was excited to see it and I’m so glad I did!
Dumbo 2019 Movie review ( Spoiler Free)
First Things first week days night are a great time to go see movies. We went to a nice theater where you have assigned seats and reclining chairs. We went on Monday so it was not busy at all! There was no line for popcorn or the bathroom and it was just really nice not to be packed in with a bunch of other people. Now, let’s get to the movie ! The last time I watch the original Dumbo movie was probably sometime in the 90’s so I remember parts of it but not the whole thing but I do know that there was a cute new spin on my favorite scene from original movie. Hint it’s the scene with bubbles ! The main difference I noticed about the new movie is that there was a lot more focus on the circus performers and their lives and interactions with Dumbo instead of just focusing on Dumbo’s story. The actors in this movie were amazing everyone worked really well together . Of Course the CGI was mind blowing as well. It was hard to tell sometimes what was CGI and what wasn’t. The story was told very well and I really liked the well rounded plot and the flow of the story . The movie had a great overall pacing ,there were no lagging moments. It was a great adventure story and I recommend going to see it !
Hello, my bucket list friends ! I just crossed another item of my bucket list. As always I’m excited to share my adventure with all of you so here we go !
Bucket List #76 get a Disney Tattoo
I have been wanting to cross this one off for a while now and on Friday I finally got my chance. My friend and I were having a wonderful hang out day. We had just finished walking around a park when we were trying to decide what to do next. I looked on my phone and saw that there was a tattoo shop nearby that took walk ins so we went to check it out. When we got there I was happy to hear that they had time to take a walk in appointment . I wanted to get two Mickey Mouse shaped balloons but I wanted one of them to have a bow on top to look like Minnie.I showed the artist some pictures of similar tattoos and he drew up the perfect design. My friend enjoyed watching and taking pictures while I got my newest tattoo. I’m a huge Disney fan and I wanted a fun tattoo that would show that. I’m really happy with the way it turned out and I’m also happy that I crossed another item off my list !
Hello, my bucket list friends ! This weekend I got to enjoy one of my favorite Christmas time things ,Christmas lights ! There is this really cool event in my area called Fantasy of lights I’ve mentioned this before in a blog post from last year.( you can read it here ). Anyways I thought I’d go into more detail about this fun event . Let’s get to it !
Fantasy of lights 2018
Fantasy of lights is this wonderful event where a local park goes all out with the Christmas lights . There are many colorful light displays set up you can see everything from penguins to dinosaurs . The event started 20 years ago but I remember when it was new! It used to be just a drive through attraction but later on walk through nights were offered . After doing both more then once I can honestly say that the walk through nights are my favorite . This year I did the walk through with my parents . I saw my favorite light displays including the ice skating bears, the bear climbing the huge candy cane and the big Fantasy of lights arch. There was a light display of cat that I think was new . It’s fun to see all the displays that have been added over the years . It was cold and crowded that night but it was still enjoyable . One of the things that have changed since this event started is that you now have to get tickets before you go because it has become so popular . Even with the all cold and all the people it was worth going to this year. I hope everyone is enjoying the last month of 2018 .
