Days like this :)

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 ?   Rock On- Christina Epperly

E bay haul September 2019 part 1

Hello,my bucket list friends ! Recently I did a shopping spree on E bay to find some items that I haven’t been able to find at the Good will. My two main focuses were American Girl doll clothes and first generation My Little Pony toys. I can’t wait to show you what I got so here we go !

E bay haul September 2019 part 1

American Girl Doll clothes- I really wanted to get some new clothes for my American Girl doll Clover but I didn’t want to buy them new because they are pretty expensive. I went on E bay to find some used American Girl clothes at an affordable price. It was harder then I thought it would be. If you look on E bay there are a lot of people selling home made or other brands of doll clothes that will fit American Girl Dolls but that are not American Girl brand clothes. Now there is nothing wrong with these kinds of doll clothes it just wasn’t what I was looking for. When I did find American Girl Doll clothes the auctions were competitive. However I was able to get some cute dolls clothes that were  from the American Girl place in Chicago. I was very excited to put them on Clover and of course they looked great on her!

 

My Little Pony Moon Dancer G1

I’ve been wanting to add some G1 Ponies to my collection also known as the Ponies that came out in the 80’s. I found that it was much easier to buy G1 ponies one by one instead of bidding on a bunch of them in one lot. I bought a few ponies and Moon Dancer was the first one that came. I just have to say she is so beautiful ! I’m very happy to add her to my pony collection.

 

My Little Pony Sweet Stuff G1

Sweet Stuff was my 2nd G1 pony to arrive from E bay! I’m very excited to welcome her in my collection!  I love her hair and her overall look.

 

American Girl inner star university  book

I love American Girl books but I had never gotten the chance to read one of these books before. The book I got it called A Girl’s Best Friend. The Inner Star University books are in the same style as the choose your own adventure books. As you read through the story you get to make choices for the main charter. It’s up to you how the story goes! There are more books in this series I hope to get more sometime.

My 29th birthday !

Hello, my bucket list friends ! On August 26th I turned 29 ! It was a really great day and I can’t wait to tell you all about it so here we go !

My 29th birthday !

My birthday started of with a nice relaxing day at home. I slept in , put up a new blog post and just enjoyed the day. That evening the fun began. It started off with meeting family and friends and one of my favorite places Build a Bear Workshop. I already knew which bear I was going to choose. I saw this bear online that was brightly colored and she had ice pops on her feet. I found her at the workshop easily and my guests picked the animals they wanted then it was time build them. The employee that helped us was very nice and even made me a birthday sticker. I named my bear August Summers and I got her an outfit that had ice pops on it ! Her fur is so soft I’m so happy I choose her to be my birthday bear! My guest’s animals turned out really cute as well. After all our bear building fun it was time to chow down at the food court. I finally got to try out this vegan restaurant I’ve been wanting to go to. The food was pretty good. After that we went to the Cheese Cake Factory for Cheese Cake of course ! I got the very pretty and very yummy celebration cheese cake. It was truly a wonderful birthday! A big thank you to everyone that gave me birthday wishes and helped me celebrate.

San Francisco day trip Aug. 2019

Hello, my bucket list friends ! Earlier this month my mom and I went on a fun day trip to San Francisco. I can’t wait to tell you all about it so hold on tight and here we go !

San Francisco day trip Aug. 2019

I’m so blessed that I live only about an hour drive from a major tourist city! I’ve been to San Francisco quite a few times but this city has so much to offer it wasn’t hard to find things there that I haven’t done before. When we got to SF we signed up for a boat tour that passed under the golden gate bridge . ( I’ve walked across the bridge before you can read about it HERE) Before the boat tour we took a walk over to pier 39 and I did one of my favorite things souvenir shopping! I all ready have some souvenirs from my previous trips to San Francisco including some snow globes but I had some things in mind that I was looking for. I found this amazing snow globe that has the whole state of California on one side and San Francisco on the other side . I was so happy when I saw this snow globe I knew I just had to get it ! I also knew I wanted to get a stuffed animal wearing a San Francisco shirt I have quite a few stuff animals wearing shirts from other destinations but I didn’t have one from SF. I got a very cute seal that was wearing a San Francisco sweat shirt I picked out a few other things then it was time for the boat tour ! We were one of the last people to get on the boat but we found some good seats by a window on the upper deck. The boat ride included an audio tour. I enjoyed listening to the audio tour it provided all kinds of interesting facts about the places we were passing. It was so cool to pass under the Golden Gate bridge! The boat was packed full of people so it was hard to get good pictures but I managed to get some good shots of some of the things we passed. After the boat it was time for lunch. Went we went Boudin bakery I loved looking at all bread in fun shapes.  For lunch I had an amazing veggie sandwich . After lunch we went somewhere I’ve been wanting to go for a while the Aquarium of the Bay. This Aquarium was pretty small but it was still fun. I enjoyed looking at the fish and the otters. After enjoying the aquarium we decided to go on a bus tour. We went on the big bus tour. On the big bus tour you can hop on and off the bus at different locations but we decided to stay on the bus for the most of the loop and listen to the tour guide as he gave some interesting information about every stop. We ended up getting off the bus a stop or two before the end of the full loop. When we got of the bus we ended up walking  around pier 39 some more and we went and looked at the the famous seals. After that we walked to a Starbucks for some food and drinks before heading back home after a fun filled day.

The Bucket List orange

Hello, my bucket list friends back in 2015 I planted a tree to cross it off my bucket list . ( you can read about it HERE ) It wasn’t just any tree that I planted it  was an orange tree ! Well today I finally ate the first orange from that tree and I’m excited to tell you all about it ! Here we go !

 

 

The Bucket List orange

 

There has been one orange on my bucket list tree for a while. I’ve been waiting for the right time to eat it and today was the day. I simply went over to my tree and gently picked it and when I did a bunch of orange blossoms fell of the tree like confetti. It was like the tree was celebrating me picking the orange. The Orange was imperfect it had some spots but it was from my bucket list tree and that was perfect enough for me. Even though the Orange had been on the tree for a while it still tasted great !   I can’t wait to see if my bucket list tree grows anymore oranges !

Rock on ! – Christina Epperly
