Weekend highlights

Hello,my bucket list friends! This weekend was pretty great so I thought it would be fun to share it with all of you. I hope all of you had a great weekend as well!

Going to Target – Friday after work I went to Target. I got a lot of fun things including a small Barbie color reveal doll,a Barbie doll that came with a bathtub, shoe liners to wear with my Crocs, a My Little pony coloring book, bath bombs and two art kits.

Bath bombs – I used two bath bombs this weekend. One on Friday night and one on Sunday. The one I used Friday night was one of the ones that had gotten a Target that day. It was a little mermaid themed bath bomb and came with a cute pendent inside it. The bath bomb I used on Sunday was also from Target but I got it on a different shopping trip. It’s was an ice cream cone shaped bath bomb and it had a cute squishy toy hidden inside. This bath bomb was very similar to another bath bomb that I had gotten at Target before except for it was in the shape of a gummy bear.

Art ! – I did one of the art kits that I got at Target. It was make your own necklace kit where you painted a large butterfly. It came with three colors and it was very simple. I enjoyed this fun and quick project.

Succulents – I finally got around to planning the succulents that I already had. I put all three of them in one pot and I like the way they look. I hope this becomes a new hobby for me.

Celebrating mother’s Day – Sunday was mother’s Day and we went up to Napa to celebrate. We had a good lunch at a cute restaurant that had porch swings outside.

Walks – I was able to go on a couple walks this weekend. It’s amazing how something so simple can be so relaxing and enjoyable and healthy.

More bath bomb fun !

Hello, my bucket list friends! I don’t know if using bath bombs is considered a hobby or not but if it is it’s definitely my new hobby! On a trip to Target I got this really cool sparkly bath bomb shaped like a bear. It was also one of the bath bombs that came with a surprise inside. This is the first bath bomb that I’ve used that is coved in glitter. When I first held it the glitter came off very easily. I was curious to see if this bath bomb would leave me covered in glitter or not. When I first touched the bath bomb it did leave a lot of glitter behind. However after I put it in the water the glitter seemed to loose it’s stickiness. I did take a shower after my bath so that could have washed it off but anyways the glitter didn’t seem to be much of a problem. The prize inside was a squishy heart toy. I’ve also been using a lot of bath bombs from two sisters spa. I just keep ordering these super fun bath bombs I love getting the ones that have prizes inside. I also like that they make bubbles as well.

Self timer photoshoot challenge !

Hello, my bucket list friends! I love watching fun youtube videos and not too long ago one of my favorite video creators did a video where they took self timer photos. ( You can watch it HERE) I really liked the idea of taking self timer photos so I decided to try it out for myself. I can’t wait to show you the fun photos I took so let’s get to it!

Self timer photoshoot challenge !

For my first self timer photo shoot I decided to cover my bed with stuffed animals! I loved the way I set everything up but doing this photoshoot was harder then I thought it would be. I thought I had a tripod that would work with my phone but it turns out I didn’t so I put my phone on a stack of books. I had fun coming up with different poses but I did get tired of having to reset the timer. Even with those challenges I’m happy with the way the photos turned out. Here are three of my favorites!

For my next photoshoot I decided to head outside to my deck. The weather was perfect for photos and I had a fun time choosing different spots on my deck to take photos from. Here are three of my favorite outdoor photos!

For my last photoshoot I decided to take photos in the car. I had my neighbor’s dog with me that day so I included him in the photos . It was hard to get him to look at the camera but he is cute no matter what direction he is looking in ! Here are three of my favorites!

There you have it my self timer photoshoot challenge! Overall this was fun to do and definitely worth trying!

I love my glittery nails and other thoughts :)

Hello,my bucket list friends ! Today is one of those days when I have a lot of random things that I want to write about so I decided to put them all in one post. Here we go.

I love my glittery nails ! My friend Amy and I got our nails done together. She got this beautiful blue color on her toes and I got pink and purple with glitter on my finger nails. I’m so glad that I decided to get a gel manicure because my nails still look amazing over a week after I got them done!

I can’t wait for my doll to return from the hospital. – I know that’s a weird sentence to read but I had to send one of my American Girl dolls off for repairs. I think it was last week or maybe the week before I sent my doll Coral to the American Girl doll hospital. I bought Coral off eBay earlier this year. After not having her for very long her leg fell off. Doll limbs can get loose over time and fall off. I’ve been meaning to send her to the hospital for a while now and I can’t wait for her to return!

I have had some good thrift finds lately. – I love going thrift shopping and lately I’ve been finding some great stuff such as American Girl stickers and books, arts and crafts kits, Beanie Babies and some nice clothes. Going thrift shopping is like going on a treasure hunt I never know what I’m going to find!

I went walking on one of my favorite trails – Due to weather,smoke and work schedules I haven’t been able to go on as many walks as I would like to. Getting to walk on my favorite trails again was great! It was a beautiful day !

Thanks for reading ! Rock On- Christina Epperly

My 30th birthday

Hello, my bucket list friends! On Wednesday I turned 30 and I had a really great day celebrating! I can’t wait to tell you all about it so let’s jump on in !

The first thing I want to say is thank you everyone who wished me a happy birthday! I felt so loved on my birthday. I’m so blessed to have many wonderful people in my life. My plan for my birthday was to go to the Dollar Tree and buy 30 things for my 30th birthday then go to savers to get some books from their very impressive book section. Before going out to dinner that evening. Things at the Dollar Tree started off pretty well but I kept losing count of how many items I had. I ended up with more then 30 items but I had fun and that’s what matters! Then it was time for Savers. The first thing I noticed when I walked into Savers is that the book section had moved. Luckily it was just as big as it used to be. We spent a good amount of time looking through the books and my mom and I found some good books. I got a few other things at savers but mainly books. We made a stop for coffee before heading home. After spending a little time at home it was time to go out to dinner. We met Amy there.  I was so happy to see her!  Also dinner was amazing! I had a really wonderful birthday. I hope the first year of my 30s is wonderful too.
