Hello, my bucket list friends! I hope you had a wonderful Valentine’s Day. I know Valentine’s Day can sometimes feel like an exclusive holiday but it is really a holiday that anyone can celebrate. I wrote an article about Valentine’s day on vocal media. ( You can read it HERE) This year I had a great time celebrating Valentine’s day. I had the day off from work and I took it easy. I published a blog post about my weekend. ( You can read it HERE) I also decided to do an art kit. I have a lot of art kits in my room just waiting for me to use them. Yesterday, I decided to do an art kit where you paint a butterfly magnet. I enjoyed doing this simple craft kit. I find painting to be very relaxing and I really like the way that my butterfly magnet looked when I was done. However, the big highlight of my day was going to to dinner with my mom and some friends at my favorite local Mexican restaurant. The food was amazing as always and I really enjoyed spending time with some fun people. It was one of the best Valentine’s days that I have ever had.
Hello, my bucket list, friends! Sometimes, I see interesting things while I’m at the grocery store that I want to try and review. Nitro Pepsi is one of those items. I’ve had the can sitting in my refrigerator for a while now, and last night, I decided to finally try it and review it. Typically, when it comes to soda, I drink it straight from the can. However, when I looked at the instructions online, it said to pour the soda into a tall glass with no ice. It also said to turn the can completely upside-down when you are pouring it. I followed the directions so I could give an accurate review. I also set up my phone on the counter and recorded the process of me pouring and trying the soda. With all that being said, let’s get to the actual review part. I had a lot of fun pouring the soda. It was pretty normal at first, but when the foam appeared, it made me really happy. You can see my smile in the screenshots I took from the video. It was really fun to pour the soda and watch the foam come to the top. I had to sip it at one point so it would not overflow. As for the taste of the soda, it was smooth and very easy to drink. I drank it a lot faster than I usually drink soda. It had that wonderful cola taste that soda drinkers love. I highly recommend trying Nitro Pepsi at least once, especially if you are a soda fan. I do have to say that my favorite part of Nitro Pepsi was pouring it into the glass. Watching the foam just made me really happy.
Hello, my bucket list, friends! Thursday, on my lunch break, I walked down to a local toy store. My new job still allows me to walk to the toy store, and Thursday, on my lunch break, that is what I did. I did not really have anything in particular in mind, but I knew I would find some some fun things there. I was curious to see if there were any Barbie color reveal items, but I didn’t see any. I did see some Disney Princess color reveal toys that I considered getting but the price was more then I was willing to pay so I made a mental note to look for it at other stores to see if I could get it at a lower price. However, I did end up buying four items that I’m excited to tell you about. One item I got was a crayon with many colors. The crayon is made up of different colors of hearts. To use a certain color, you have to move that color of heart to the bottom of the stack. I also got some stickers shaped like sunglasses. Each pair of sunglasses has a different city’s skyline printed in the lenses of the glasses. The two other items I got are a Disney Pez dispenser and a package of two bracelets that can be decorated with the flat Lego blocks that come in the package. Going to the toy store was a fun activity to do on my lunch break!

Hello, my bucket list, friends! I’m here with a post that I’m excited to write! On December 20th, I crossed two more items off my bucket list, plus I enjoyed a day in Los Angeles. Let’s start by talking about the first item I crossed off my bucket list that day. I started my day in Los Angeles by crossing off bucket list number 275. Go on a tour of Warner Brothers Studios. There is something really fun about seeing where TV shows and movies are made. I really enjoyed crossing this item off my list. There was so much to see on the tour, and the guide did a wonderful job of providing us with many interesting facts about many of the things we saw on the tour.There were also many great photo opportunities. I love the photo of me on the couch in front of the Friends fountain. I also enjoyed the display of Christmas items they had. I love the selfie I took with Jack Frost. There was also a gift shop, of course, where I got a few fun items, including a hat that says writer on it. After the tour and the gift shop, I spent some time in the Starbucks that was located in the lobby where the tours started. It was a fun item to cross off my bucket list, and I had one more item to cross off that day. After my tour, I went to Hollywood to cross number 244 go to a blow dry bar off my bucket list. I had made an appointment online, and I was ready for a little relaxion after an already busy day. I really did enjoy having my hair washed and styled. I decided to get curls, and I really liked that way I looked. With another item off my list and a super cute hairstyle, I decided to go to an attraction called the giant’s house. This attraction is just like a selfie museum. There were so many fun props to take photos with. Some of my favorites were the giant high heel, the ball pit, the piece of cake, and the coffee cup. I love the photos that I took there. Oh, the giant lipstick was pretty great, too. After my visit to the Giant’s house, I decided to walk to one of my favorite souvenire stores. On the way to the store, I came across some guys carrying some absolutely beautiful snakes. I fell in love with the yellow snake, and I just had to have a picture of me holding it. The snake’s name was lemonade, and that was a perfect name for this snake because he is a yellow snake. After holding the snake for pictures, I made it to the souvenir store where I found some fun items to add to my collection, including a snow globe. I had one last stop before I went back to my hotel for the day. I accidently left my toothpaste at home, so I needed to get some more. I went to CVS, and I got the toothpaste plus some more souvenirs. It was a great first day of vacation. Thanks for reading about this part of my adventure in Los Angeles.
Hello, my bucket list, friends ! It is time for a fun little blog post. This post is mainly about what I did yesterday, but there are some Christmastime highlights, including the ones I mentioned in the title above. The first highlight of the day was going to get Starbucks before going to work. The cup I got a Starbucks was the one with the trees on it. I decided to keep this cup and color it after work. There was one major difference about work on this day, and that was that I started work earlier than I had been. Work got busy at times, but it was a pretty good day overall. After work, I went home and started coloring my Starbucks cup. I got a bunch of different markers, and I made my cup very colorful. Later on that day I went to a family Christmas party. I was excited to see my family and play the White Elephant game. Another thing I was excited about was getting to decorate gingerbread houses. I brought my gingerbread Target store kit to build and decorate. I had a good time building the gingerbread store. I love the dog and shopping cart that came with the kit. I also enjoyed playing the white elephant game. That is one of my favorite games to play at Christmastime. I have a good amount of memories of playing that game, and now I have a new memory of playing it. It was good to spend time with family because I don’t get to see my family as often as I would like to. It was a good day. Christmas time is truly a special time of year.
Hello, my bucket list, friends! Last night, I went to one of my favorite local Christmastime events. I’ve gone to fantasy of lights many times. I have even attended their walk through event before. However, due to crowd sizes, I’ve decided that I like the drive-through better. Last night, after stopping at Panera Bread, my parents and I went to the fantasy of lights drive through. I’m glad I was able to get a ticket because they got bought quickly. At the event, I was reunited with my favorite light displays. Some of my favorites are the ice-skating bears, the dinosaurs, and the penguins. There was also something new this year. They had these beautiful flowers. I loved the new addition to the event. Also, they gave out these cool glasses that caused the lights to take fun shapes when you looked through them.I had a really great time, and I hope to go back next year!
Hello, my bucket list, friends! Yesterday I went to a local craft faire. I haven’t been to this event in a long time, so I was very excited that I got the chance to go yesterday morning. I was glad that the craft faire was inside because it was a rainy day. There were a lot of different vendors at the craft faire. I was excited when I saw a bunch of cute ornaments. I was even more excited when I found out that you could choose one and have it personalized. I chose a cat and had my name and the year put on it. Another thing that really caught my eye was a bunch of beautiful soaps. I was happy that there was soap that had toys inside. I got one soap that had a cat shaped toy inside and another that had a whale inside. I walked around a little more at the craft faire, and t I got one more item before it was time to leave. I this this very cute owl plush ornament. I have it sitting on the dresser next to my bed, and I love it so much. After the craft faire, we went home for a little bit before I had to go into town for work. I had some time before my shift started, so I spent some time at a nearby coffee shop. It was raining most of the day, so the coffee shop was the perfect place to hang out before work. I got a coffee and a reindeer shaped cookie at the coffee shop. After the coffee shop, I walked to work. Work went well, and after my shift, I went back home and had a nice night in.
