A big box of dolls

Hello, my bucket list friends ! Some of you may remember when I got boxes filled with My Little Pony toys from Ebay.  ( you can read about it HERE ) Well this time I got a big box of Barbies and other similar dolls. I can’t wait to tell you more about it so here we go!

 

 

A big box of dolls

I had a lot of fun opening up the boxes of ponies that I had got from E bay so I thought it would be fun to order a big box dolls. The box I got was mainly barbie dolls but there were a few other kinds of dolls in the mix such as Disney princess dolls. The first thing I did was to sort through the dolls and decide which ones I was going to keep. After I sorted through the box I decided to keep 16 of the dolls. The next step was to wash all of them in the bathtub since they all have been played with. Some of the dolls had marks on them or sticky hair so a bath was much needed. I looked online to see how to best wash a Barbie doll’s hair . The first video that I watched said to use regular shampoo and conditioner so that’s what I used. I put  the dolls and doll clothes in the bathtub . Then I put soap and warm water in the bathtub to get them extra clean. I let them soak for awhile then I washed their hair and rinsed them off. I let them air dry over night . The next day I re-rinsed off a few of the dolls that had sticky hair. Finally I got them all dried dressed and they all looked great! I’m so happy that I decided to get a big box of dolls from Ebay ! What would you order a big box of ? Rock On – Christina Epperly

Bucket list and books

Hello, my bucket list friends ! I’m excited to tell you about the latest item I’m crossing off my list . I’m actually crossing it off  right now with this post. The item I’m crossing off is #214 Join a book club or start my own. That’s right I’m starting my own book club right here on this blog ! Before I tell you about the book club I’m starting, let me tell you why I decided to start it. I knew I wanted to cross this item off my list so I went looking for an online book club because my work schedule is always changing and it’s hard for me to commit to regular in person meetings. After doing some searching , I came across a Facebook group where a book was chosen each month through a vote. I participated in the the vote and I ordered the book that was chosen. I was excited to be apart of a book club. I got about a hundred or so pages into the book when I decided to stop reading that book and start  my own book club. From what I have seen the books that are often times ( not always) Chosen for book clubs including the one I was reading are focused on heavy subject matter. The book I was reading was very well written and the descriptions of the characters were amazingly detailed. I have discovered that I tend to enjoy books with more light hearted subject matter. I’m excited to announce the start of the Light Heart book club ! I have so many books in my room that I have been meaning to read. The book that I have chosen for April is an American Girl book . The book is called Lanie and the author is Jane Kurtz. This book focus on a young girl with a love for the outdoors! When I have finished the book I will post my review.  As well as some activities inspired by the book. Feel free to join me in reading this light hearted book !

Thrift shopping is awesome !

Hello, my bucket list friends ! As a lot of you probably know I love thrift shopping and I’ve been doing a good amount of it lately. I thought that it would be a good idea to write about why I love it so much . Here we go !

 

Thrift shopping is awesome !

The first thing that comes to mind when I think about thrift shopping is the excitement. When you walk into a thrift store you never know what you are going to find. Yes, it’s true that there have been sometimes when I have not found anything that I was really excited about on a thrift trip. On the other hand There have been times when I have walked away with lots of treasures ! Lately I’ve have some really good finds such as American Girl books , craft kits, Disney items , and more ! There is something truly special about the feeling you get when you find a really awesome item! The next thing I think about when I think of thrift shopping is the nostalgia of finding items that remind me of my childhood and even finding things that I had years ago. It is also a really awesome feeling when I find one of those nostalgic items. A well know benefit of thrift shopping is saving money! I have found some amazing deals ,I have also found things that I thought were priced on the high side. Overall I have been happy with the prices. If your looking to save money you should consider giving thrift shopping a try. When I go thrift shopping it feels like i’m going on a adventure. I love going thrift shopping with other people. I get excited for them when they find something that they are really excited about.  I can’t wait for my next thrift shopping trip !What are your favorite things about thrift shopping?

One great day !

Hello, my bucket list friends ! Last Saturday was a really fun day. I spent it with two of my favorite people doing some of the things I enjoy most . Without further delay here we go !

 

 

One great day !

My great day started by waking up with my friend Amy all ready in the house. She had spent the night before and we had a good time watching movies until we got tired . Around noon with met a friend of mine in town. Then we all walked to a local thrift store. The thrift store closes  pretty early in the day so we didn’t have much time there but we were able to find some pretty cool things. Both of my friends found a book or two and I got some books, a Barbie doll , a craft kit and a Disneyland zip up sweatshirt. As we were getting ready to get in line to pay, Amy saw the sweatshirt and knew I would love it. I quickly tired it on since it was a smaller size then I normally wear. I was so happy that it fit and was only a little tight.  After that we headed to lunch at a restaurant that we all three enjoy. Lunch was awesome we knew the food there was good but it was also nice to just to sit down and talk for awhile. After that we went to another place that we all like to go to called Petroglyph. At this art studio you choose a ceramic piece to paint then pick it up later. All three of us chose animals to paint. I chose a duck and my friends chose a porcupine and a turtle. We had a good time choosing paint for our creations and painting them. Everyone’s creation turned out beautiful if you ask me! We had had two more stops  before we called it a day , a coffee shop and the candy store ! Which I think is a perfect way to end a fun filled day ! So, there you have it my great day ! I hope all of you are having great days as well.  Rock On – Christina Epperly
