Hello,my bucket list friends! Welcome to part two of my Montana adventure! I’m excited to share the next part of my adventure with you so let’s dive on in!
Montana adventure part 2
We started off day three with a hike on the four dances trail. One of things that I leaned about Montana is that there are grasshoppers everywhere! The trail was covered in them. My favorite part about this hike is the views. It was nice to get to see Billings from up high. This hike did make me a little nervous. I was worried that we would see a rattle snake because it was so warm that day. We didn’t see any rattle snakes but I did forget to put sunscreen on the back of my neck and I got quite a burn. At least it was just a small area of my neck that got burned. After our hike we went to explore the Yellowstone art museum. There were some great works of art in this museum but my favorite was the children’s art exhibit. After the museum we went to well Pared for lunch. After lunch we walked around and I bought a Montana shirt at a shop that we had been to the day before but this time there was a very friendly dog visiting the store! On our way back to the hotel our very nice Uber driver told us about a town called Red Lodge. She said that she could take us there the next day. I was excited to explore a new place. After relaxing at the hotel for awhile we took an Uber to Starbucks but it turned out to be closed. We ended up walking to Walmart and I got another Montana shirt. Day three brought a lot walking and a lot of adventure!
We started off the day by meeting our Uber driver from the day before. We got in the car and headed to Red Lodge. Our first stop was a visitor center. After that we drove through the town to this beautiful lookout point. The views were beautiful but my favorite part was feeding sunflower seeds to the friendly chipmunks! After feeding the chipmunks we went back to the town of Red Lodge. We went right to the Yellowstone animal sanctuary. I had a fun time visiting the animals. The raccoons were my favorites but I also enjoyed seeing the bears and porcupines. There is also a very friendly cat there. Before we left we stopped by the gift shop. I love the plush owl that I got. After exploring the animal sanctuary. We were getting hungry so we put our names on a list at a restaurant. While we were waiting we went shopping. I got a snow globe and a magnet at a souvenir store. I also enjoyed going to the candy store and getting peppermints and other yummy treats. Then it was time for lunch. After having a very yummy lunch. It was time to head back to the hotel. Day 4 was so much fun! This was one of my favorite days of vacation!
That concludes part 2 of my Montana adventure. Thanks for reading
Hello, my bucket list friends ! I recently got back home from another adventure to Idaho. Even though I’ve been to Idaho a few times I seem to always find something new to explore each time I visit my grandparents and this time was no different. I can’t wait to tell you more so here we go!
Idaho adventure fall 2019
On OCT. 30th my latest trip to Idaho began. My mom and I landed in Boise around 10 pm. Since our flight got in so late, there wasn’t time to do much that night except for hug my grandparents and reunite with Jewels my grandparents friendly and happy dog. The next day my uncle came over and I mentioned that we were going to Goodwill that day. He suggested that we go to a different Goodwill then we normally go to because it was located next to another thrift store called the Idaho Youth Ranch. Two thrift stores in one parking lot ? I was sold ! We headed to the Goodwill first where I found some amazing items including a Lisa Frank binder, a Mickey Mouse notebook , a large My Little Pony toy, a Mickey Mouse purse , some cool shirts and other things. Then it was on to the next thrift store. At thrift store number two I got a yellow zip up jacket , a My Little Pony DVD a Minnie Mouse shirt that came from one of the Disney parks and a very pretty necklace. After all that shopping we headed to Golden Corral for lunch. I had seen Gold Corral advertisements before but I had never been there myself. The food was pretty good and they had soft serve !! It was a pretty awesome day and that night I handed out lots and lots of Halloween candy ! Now on to the next day !
The next day was also a new month and I was excited for what we had planned that day. We were headed to the Idaho state museum ! The museum had lots to explore. My favorite thing at the museum was the bike tour. There was a bike in front of a TV screen and as you peddled the bike the TV took you on a tour of different places in Idaho. I also enjoyed designing a house on a touch screen , the video about beavers , taking a quiz about Idaho agriculture , getting to move water and leaves on a big touch screen that was made to look like a river, and shopping at the gift shop. After the museum we went to a restaurant that had a yummy buffet with soft serve ! I liked buffets before this trip but now I like them more the ever before. Even after all that fun this day had more fun left to offer. My aunt and uncle live on a farm and that night I was staying at their house. When I got to the farm the fun started right away! I got to walk a goat and run around an arena with a mini horse. I love animals and I had a lot of fun being around animals that I don’t often get to spend time with. That night I watched season 3 of Free Rein one of my favorite shows! This day was packed full of fun and adventure and the next day had even more fun to offer.
The next morning I woke up early , bundled up for the very cold morning and went with my aunt to feed the animals. I liked feeding the barn cats they reminded me of my cats at home. After all the animals got their breakfast it was time for ours. My uncle made pancakes and told me that he likes to melt peanut butter on his pancakes . I love peanut butter so I decided to give it a try. It was so good! After breakfast I got to do something I had’t done in years. Go horseback ridding ! My aunt has two beautiful horses. She let me ride one while she rode the other. My ridding skills were very rusty but I was more then happy to shake off the rust. I had an extremely fun time ridding and I can’t wait until I get another opportunity to ride again. For lunch we went to a Chinese food buffet and yes, I had more soft serve ! We went to Walmart before going back to my grandparents house. I loved seeing all the Christmas stuff that Walmart had. That night I had to pack up my things because our flight left early the next morning. I’m really glad that I got a backpack at the Good Will or I wouldn’t have had room to bring back all my stuff ! At the Airport the next morning I bought some more souvenirs including a new snow globe for my collection. I had a great visit to Idaho and I can’t wait for the next one !
Hello, my bucket list friends! Do you ever have day where you wish that every day could be like that, well last Wednesday was like that and I can’t wait to tell you why. Here we go!
Days like this 🙂
Last Wednesday I had the day off just like I had the week before. (You can read about the week before HERE) I started off the day with no plans then my awesome friend Amy asked if I wanted to hang out with her. Since it can be hard to find time to hang out when your an adult , I jumped at the chance! We didn’t have any solid plans when she picked me up but we ended up doing some of our favorite things. We went to Jack in the box for shakes ,then we headed off to Goodwill to see what we could find. We both found some really cool things. Amy found a bunch of fun stuff for her class room as well as two cute pairs of jeans. I found a My Little Pony dvd that was brand new, a craft kit where you melt beads to make a sun catcher, a photo album and four shirts. We probably spent close to two hours in the Goodwill looking for treasures. I love days like this when you get to be with amazing people and do fun things, I love the days when I can say yes to a spontaneous invitation. What kind of days do you like best ?

Hello my bucket list friends I guess it’s time to say goodbye to summer since it is the last day of August and labor day will soon be here. So without out further delay let’s say goodbye to my favorite season.
I have a hard time saying goodbye to summer but I also enjoy looking back on all the fun times I had. Ok ,where do I start This summer was jam packed with fun! Let’s just go over some of the big highlights. I saw some great summer movies including Toy story 4 and the Lion King, I went on my big summer shopping spree, crossed four things off my bucket list ( you can read about them HERE, HERE , HERE and HERE . ) I had an amazing vacation to Portland were I visited the world’s largest book store, walked around some beautiful gardens , explored the zoo and an awesome science museum. I spent some time with some pretty awesome people. Painted a very cute ceramic bunny at petroglyph. Oh and how can I forget about the beautiful weather. Yes, some days it was hot but I just love the sunshine. The more I write about my summer the more fun things I remember like the amazing day trips I took to Monterrey and San Francisco. In Monterrey I got to explore the 17 mile drive and take some fun pictures at Selfieville. In San Francisco I took a boat tour,went to aquarium of the bay, and took a bus tour around the city. In conclusion my summer was a lot of fun and I can’t wait until next year
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 !
