Say Hello to Kiwi !

I got my new Beanie Boo friend at CVS . The CVS by my work has a cute little display of Beanie Boos. After taking a look at the Beanie Boos I could chose from , I decided to bring Kiwi home with me . Kiwi is just so cute she is mainly pink with some colorful spots allover her body . Her beak is also just so cute and I love her big purple eyes ! With her I now have four very cute Beanie Boos ! I’m excited to see which Beanie Boo I bring home next !

My new friend Lavender !

 

On whim my friend asked me to go to Costco with her . I was excited to get to spend some time with her. I had no idea I would find something there that I just couldn’t pass up .  While my friend and I were looking around in Costco . I saw these awesome American Girl pets . There was a huge horse but also some very cute dogs and cats . I walked away at first but I could not stop thinking about how much I wanted to get one of the dogs . As you have probably guessed now I ended up getting one . I finally got around to opening her today . She comes with cute little book that has quizzes and other fun things inside . After looking at the book  I named her Lavender to remind me to take time to relax and reduce stress .  She is a really cool toy that can stand up or sit down . I love how she has moveable legs . I cant wait to fill out more information about her in the book she came with !

                                                                     Fun Target finds !

I love going shopping at Target and one of my favorite things about Target is the dollar section . I was really excited to check out the dollar section on this trip because I knew that they would have their Christmas items out and let me tell you something the dollar section did not disappoint ! I found two painting projects that I really had fun painting .One was a seal made out of plaster wearing earmuffs the other was a wooden snowman . I also got a Disney Christmas book for a dollar and  cute stuffed penguin  it was one of the three dollar items that dollar section has . Outside of the dollar section I got a new My Little pony toy an Apple Jack figure that is covered in a beautiful glitter design . My other awesome Target find is a box of  Crayola crayons ,they are a special pirate themed pack and they cost under a dollar ! It was a fun shopping trip and I hope to go to Target again soon !

#82 finish an entire coloring book

Hello , My buck list friends ! I’m very excited to tell you about the 2nd item that I’ve crossed off this year ! I just got back from a little spring break trip to Idaho to visit family (I’ll talk more about that in my next blog post )but while I was there I crossed an item off my list that I have been working on for a long time . Here we go !

 

#82 finish an entire coloring book

I started working on this item the same year I started my bucket list that’s right I started working on this coloring book in 2012 . I bought it the dollar tree and I had no idea that it would take me this long to finish it but life got busy and I would set it aside for a while . Now here it is 2018 and I finally finished it ! It is fun looking through the book seeing all the pages I colored.  some I colored with markers some with glitter crayons and I didn’t always stick to the colors of the characters . Sometimes I would pretty much use whatever color I grabbed . I’m very proud of myself for finishing the coloring book and It’s kind of cool that it took me that long I mean I look at a page and I wonder what year I colored it or where I was when I colored it . I’m happy with the way it turned out and I’m excited to see what list item I cross off next !

4 Boxes of ponies !

Hello, my bucket list friends since my last blog post was a little on the heavy and emotional side I thought it would be a good idea to write something fun and light-hearted . This year I have won four boxes of my little pony toys from Ebay . I did talk about the first box I got in a blog post earlier this year. I also posted about the boxes on my social media accounts I have also posted 3 unboxing videos  on youtube so far but I will be posting the fourth one soon . Anyways hold on tight as I tell you about how much fun it has been opening four boxes of ponies !

 

 

4 boxes of ponies

As some of you may know I’m a big fan of my little pony . I Love collecting the toys and other merchandise as well as watching the show . Back in January I decided to start bidding on my little pony lots on Ebay. I found that there is a Goodwill that puts together lots of ponies and puts them up for auction on Ebay . I love shopping at the Goodwill and I have found some good my little pony stuff there so I started bidding on some of the my little pony lots that they had on Ebay . I won my first box in January and so far I have won 4 boxes . Some of the boxes are over 9 pounds ! That is a lot of ponies ! Now my room is filled with more ponies than ever before . Before I got the Ebay boxes I mainly had pony toys that were from the current generation of my little pony also known as G4  but now I have a lot of G3  and G3.5 ponies and they are pretty cool . With the fourth box I was able to get all  of the power ponies ! The boxes also had some Equestria girls girls dolls  I got lots of Twilight sparkle dolls and a Sunset shimmer doll along with many others . I also got what I call the snow globe style ponies they are clear pony toys filed with water and glitter shapes . I did not have any snow globe style ponies  before I got the boxes . One of my favorites box find is a pinkie pie toy that blows bubbles . I’ve had a lot of fun opening up the boxes. I also enjoy looking at all the new ponies that I have around my room . Getting four boxes of ponies is making my year just a little more fun !

January 2018 wrap up!

Hello, bucket list friends since January is ending soon I thought I would do a quick wrap up on the first month of 2018. I’ve been working on somethings this month and I can’t wait to tell you all about it so here we go!

 

 

My life in January 2018

 

January always seems to go by slowly for me. There does not seem to be a lot happening in January and the month just drags on. Also, the gloomy weather can cause me to become depressed. I discovered a long time ago that walking is a great way to improve my mood and that is what I have been doing a lot of this month. I have been on many walks this month and some even on sunny days! Two of my favorite walks that I took this month were the one by the beach and the one to the pond on a trail that had been closed for a long time, It felt good to go on that trail again. I also started working on one of my more long-term bucket list items #195 read 100 books in one year this month I read 8 books, so I’m off to a great start. I’ve also been doing a lot of writing this month I’ve started writing a fiction story The Unschooled Dairy of Aspen Roads (you can read it here

 

). I plan to do a lot more fiction writing this year and I have been working on two other books that I have not posted. I’ve also spent some great times with family and friends this month and as you can tell from my last blog post I dyed my hair green and that was bucket list item #166 I also booked my vacation for this summer and the destination is on my bucket list, I signed up for a 5k next month as well!   To top it all off today a whole box of my little pony toys that I won from eBay arrived today, I had so much fun looking through all the ponies. January might not usually be a very fun month but this time I feel like I turned that around, I mean I crossed off a list item and I had some great friend time! I did face some obstacles month but overall the year is off to a great start .

#207 own an American girl doll

Hello, My bucket list friends! I hope you are all enjoying this last little bit of 2017.  During This time of year there is a lot of gift giving going on and as silly as it may sound it’s important to not leave yourself off the list. As the year winds down, I want to do my best to end it on a good note, so I decided to treat myself by crossing off a bucket list item and making one of my childhood dreams come true.

 

#207

When I was in elementary school I loved looking at the American girl catalog and I really wanted one of the dolls, but they were a lot of money, so I got the mini dolls and enjoyed reading the books and for a while I had moved on. As I’ve grown up I have learned that it is important to remember, that even if you are no longer a child it is not too late to make your childhood dreams come true. After debating if I should spend the money or not I choose a doll from the American girl website. I picked the truly me doll #23 her hair is lighter than mine, but they were back ordered on the doll with the darker hair, so I went with the beautiful #23 doll. I was so excited when she finally arrived! I got her out of the box as fast as I could, and you know what? I think I was just as excited as I would have been if I got her when I was a kid. I knew I had to give her an awesome name, so I turned to the internet and I looked for some unique and fun girls name. After searching for a While I chose Clover as her name. I think it fits her very well. Having my own American girl doll is a dream come true. I’m so happy that I crossed off this list item. To be honest this has been a stressful week but getting Clover gave me a major happiness boost and I’m ready to have a Merry Christmas with Clover by my side .
