Hello, my bucket list, friends! I love art kits, so I wanted to write a quick post telling you about my latest art kit adventure. On Monday, I had the day off, so I had time to open one of the many art kits that I have. This kit was one of my favorite kinds of art kits. It is a simple painting art kit. This kit came with two lamas , two sets of paint, and two paint brushes. I had a fun time painting the lamas. I made them pretty colorful, and I love how both of them look.

Hello, my bucket list, friends! Overall, so far, September has been a busy month as far as work goes, and that’s a good thing! However, I have not had a whole lot of fun adventures this month. but there have been a few highlights that I wanted to share with you. Without any more delay, let’s get to it!
September 15th – I had this day off. With my free time, I decided to see what Barbie color reveal doll I had gotten. I had bought her at Target, but I had not gotten around to seeing what doll I got in the totally denim series. All the dolls looked cool. The doll that I got was mainly pink with a fun butterfly pattern. I want to get more dolls in this series. My big highlight of the day was going to Savers. At Savers, I got a Barbie doll who had a cute necklace on but also needed some TLC. Her face was very dirty but I was able to clean her when I got home. I’m happy that I rescued her. The other items that I got at Savers on this day are an unopened bead kit, some books including American Girl books, two TY Beanie Babies , a bag of hair bows , a paint your own tea set art kit, and a Build a Bear plush. After Savers, I quickly went to the Safeway next to Savers to get something I needed, but I also got two Hot Wheels cars. They have them at a really good price at Safeway. That night, I started painting my tea set. The paint was no longer in the set, but I had paint that I could use. I had fun painting dots on the plates. It was an overall good day!
September 16th – On this day I had work in the afternoon. I started off the day by going to brunch at a neighbor’s house. It was fun getting to see and talk to some of my neighbors. My next big highlights of the day were going to Starbucks and the park. During my break at work I went shopping. I got another bead kit and an art kit. The art kits come with two lamas that you paint. I was very excited about the things that I bought on my break. It was another pretty good day!
September 17th – I also worked in the afternoon on this day . I went and got coffee and went to church before work. After church, I went to Starbucks, and I got a pink drink. At work during my break, I bought two new Kiner joy eggs that have animal toys in them. It was another good day.
September 18th – On this day, I went to work, and during my break, I bought a Hot Wheels monster truck that was Barbie themed. After work, I went to Safeway, where I got two juice drinks that come with toys. I really like the monster truck I got!
Thank you for reading about some of my latest highlights!

Hello, my bucket list friends in this blog post. I will talk about a fun road trip I took at the end of July. I didn’t cross off any bucket list items, but I did have a pretty good time, and I can not wait to tell you more, so let’s get to it.
July 28 – This was the day that our road trip began. The main goal of this road trip was to go to the Dallas Cowboys training camp in Oxnard. On the way to Oxnard, we stopped at a small but amazing zoo. While we were driving, we saw a sign for the Charles Paddock zoo, so we decided to check it out. One of my favorite things that I saw here was the flamingos, including a baby flamingo. I also really enjoyed seeing the tortoises and the tiger. I also went to the gift shop and I got some fun souvenirs. After we made it to the hotel we went swimming it was a pretty great day.
July 29- This was the opening day of the Dallas Cowboys training camp, and it was packed full of fans. It took a long time to park, and then it took a very long time to get into the event. I did enjoy the event, though it is always exciting to see people that you usually see on a screen in person. I also got a really good ice cream cone here. After taring camp we had lunch at Whole Foods. I love the Whole Foods hot bar. After lunch, we went to a Goodwill store. I did not get much here, but I did get a few things, including stickers and two Barbie nail files. At the hotel I went swimming again. I love being able to go swimming when I stay at hotels.
July 30- On this day we had plans to go parasailing but it candled due to weather. I was disappointed, but we decided to go on a trolley tour in Santa Barbra instead. We did a trolly tour and had fun exploring the city. I loved the dolphin fountain! There is a lot to see here, and I would love to come back sometime. Before going back to Oxnard, we ate at a really good Mexican restaurant. I also went swimming again!
July 31 – This was the day we went back home. We made a few stops on the way home, including a stop at another Mexican restaurant. I’m a big fan of veggie burritos!However, as I came back home, I had no idea that a major challenge would be coming my way. In my next blog post, I will tell you all about it.
Thanks for reading about my road trip adventure! – Christina Epperly
Hello,my bucket list friends! I know the title of this post is a little weird but I couldn’t think of a good name for it. I recently started playing a game called project makeover. I had seen lots of adds for it. It looked interesting so I decided to download it. I just have to say that I LOVE playing it! If you like match three style games like Candy Crush I highly recommend checking out this game. I’ve been off from work this week because I was feeling under the weather. Unfortunately it has not gotten better and I don’t know if I’ll be well enough to celebrate Thanksgiving with family like I planned on . Anyways I’m making the most of my sick days. Today I was really proud of the outfit I put together! It’s crazy in the best way possible. I’ve also been getting Starbucks, eating tomato soup and selling things on Poshmark. I’ve made quite a few sales on there and I hope I make more as we get closer to Christmas. Thanks for reading!
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.
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.
Hello, my bucket list friends ! I hope you are all enjoying the summertime. On Saturday I got to do two fun activities and I can’t wait to tell you more about it so here we go!
Books and mini golf
Saturday’s first fun activity was going shopping at my favorite used book store. I got two American girl books to add to my collection. After the book store I went to Starbucks. I had a good time at the book store and going to get coffee and that evening I had scheduled a fun family activity. I had reserved a time slot for my parents and I at a mini golf course. I had been to this mini golf course before and I knew it was a lot of fun. I was happy that we played on my favorite side of the course. Now, I’m not very good at golf but I have a fun time playing it. We started out keeping score but after a bit we stopped keeping score and just played for fun. We all had a really good time and I hope we can go play the other side of the course soon.
Hello,my bucket list friends! If you take a look at my bucket list you will see that I have some reading goals on there. Such as reading fifty or a hundred books in one year but for this year I deiced to do a smaller goal of 25 books. ( You can see my progress HERE ) I have read eight books this year so far and I’m starting number nine today. I have so many books in my room that I haven’t read yet. Doing a reading challenge is giving me a good opportunity to read some of the books I’ve been wanting to read for a while. I’m kind of surprised at how many books I’ve already read this year! I’ll try to keep all of you updated as I make progress. Happy reading everyone !
