Hello, my bucket list friends! Welcome to a fun light hearted blog post! I believe that I will forever be young at heart! With that being said two of my favorite things are candy and toys and Kinder Joy eggs have both! A while ago I was so happy to see that Kinder had done a collaboration with Barbie. I got two eggs when I first saw them and recently I got three more of them while I was at Safeway. The prizes in the eggs have been awesome! I love the figures and other prizes. I took pictures of four of my prizes below! I highly recommend trying this candy if you never have!
Hello, my bucket list friends! My bookclub posts seem to be getting later and later and this month is no different. Now it is finally time to announce May’s book club book! This month’s book is Real Beauty 101 ways to feel great about you by Therese Kauchak. This is a different kind of book than what I would normally pick for the light-heart book club. This is more of a self-help book however so far I’ve really enjoyed reading it and I think it’s going to be really great to discuss it on this blog. I can’t wait to finish reading it and discuss it with all of you.
Hello, my bucket list friends! I am very happy to say that I finally finished March’s book club book. Our book for March was the chocolate rose by Helen Perelman. This book is part of the candy fairies series. I have enjoyed reading these books a lot. I can’t wait to discuss it with you. As always there is just one more thing. The following post contains major plot points ( Spoilers ) for the book . If you want to read the book and haven’t yet, I suggest you wait to read this post until you have finished the book. Now, let’s get into our discussion!
My favorite part of the book – there was a lot of great parts in this book including a singing unicorn. But my favorite part of the book has to be when Cocoa’s cousin mocha surprises her with a visit while she was in her garden. Not only does she visit her but she gives her encouragement about her garden. I loved reading this happiness-filled part of the book.
My lest favorite part of the book – My least favorite part of the book is when the stage was destroyed. The fairies had worked so hard to build it and it was sad to see all their hard work ruined. However I was happy to see how it all worked out in the end.
Activities – in this book Cocoa Make some beautiful paintings. That end up being used as decoration for the new talent show stage. So I thought the perfect activity to to go along with this book would be to make some paintings of my own. The first painting I did was a candy inspired flower. In the book Cocoa grows a chocolate rose in her garden. I like chocolate but my favorite candy is probably hard candies and lollipops so I made a hard candy inspired flower. For my second drawing I drew some more flowers with clouds over them raining colorful rain. I have a lot of fun doing this activity hopefully I read more books that have painting in them.
Hello, my bucket list friends! I know it may seem like it but I have not forgotten about the bookclub. I have been slowly making my way through February’s book. I hope to finish it this weekend. I thought I would use this post to choose March’s book club pick. Since March is almost over I decided to go with a book that would be easy to read quickly. I enjoy the Candy Fairies book series. I have been able to find more candy fairy books at thrift stores. The book I’ll be reading this month is the Chocolate Rose by Helen Perelman. Happy reading everyone!

Hello, my bucket list friends ! In November our book club went back to the 80s. This month’s book was Courtney changes the game by – Kellen Hertz.

My favorite part of the book – I loved the part of the book when Courtney went with her mom and step sister to the salon. I was excited for her when she got her ears pierced. I also liked the part of the book where County appeared with her mom on a local talk show.
Activity – For this month’s book I decided to just do one activity. In the book Courtney decides to design a video game for a class project. I enjoyed reading about Courtney’s game idea. I thought it would be fun to come up with my own video game idea. If I were to make a video game I would make a scavenger hunt game. The main character In my game is Lara Finder. One day Lara finds a scavenger hunt list in the park. Once she completes that list she begins to find even more lists. Her cat soda joins her on her adventures. The Last scavenger hunt brings her to the person who has been making all the lists for her.

Hello, my bucket list friends ! It’s time for our October 2020 book club discussion. I’m excited to discuss this book with all of you. This month’s book is Blaire cooks up a plan by Jennifer Castle. This was a fun book to read and I can’t wait to discuss it with all of you but as always just one more thing before we dive into our discussion. The following post contains major plot points ( Spoilers ) for the book . If you want to read the book and haven’t yet, I suggest you wait to read this post until you have finished the book. Now, let’s dive into our discussion!
My favorite part of the book – This book was full of great moments. Out of all the moments one really stands out. I absolutely love the part where Blair and her best friend Thea were exploring the attic of the house that was being renovated for one of their favorite shows.When they got to the attic their imagination started running wild with great design ideas. Their idea for an indoor playground in the attic became a reality. That was a fun part to read !
My least favorite part of the book – It was so sad when Blair had set aside a jar of sauce for Abby and it got given to someone else. Things did eventually work out but that was such a sad moment
Overall opinion of the book – I enjoyed reading this book. It’s a fun read and it has a big focus on helping others. I recommend this book for sure !
I loved how Blair designed the indoor playground so I thought it would be fun to design my own fun space. I decided to draw my dream reading room complete with a cozy reading area and a large plush bear! What dream room would you design ?
Blair lives on a farm where lots of food is grown. What kind of fruit or vegetables would you grow at your house? I have oranges and Lemons growing on my deck. For this activity I took pictures of the food growing at my house. If you don’t have any fruits or vegetables growing around your house, draw a picture of what food you would what to grow.

Blair was the American Girl of the year for 2019. I enjoyed reading Blaire’s first book and I enjoyed this one just as much. I hope you all love this month’s book.
