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 !
Hello, my bucket list friends ! Recently I got to go shopping at two of my favorite stores and I bought some pretty cool stuff. I can’t wait to tell you more about it so let’s get going!
Dollar Tree and Target hauls
Dollar Tree – I started off the first day of May with a trip to the Dollar Tree. I had to get some poster board for a project but of course that wasn’t all I got. I was very happy with the items I found during this trip. Some of my favorite items are My Little Pony toys , a pair of socks with pairs of socks on them, a pen with a doughnut on top , and cat stickers. I also got a wooden butterfly. When I get around to painting it I will be sure to post about it! My mom was with me for this trip and she found somethings she needed as well. It was a successful shopping trip for both of us!
Target – Yesterday I went to Target with my friend. She has somethings she needed to get there so I came along to see what I could find. In the Dollar section I found some fun items including summer stickers and toy sloth that you grow. another thing I got was a fun shirt that I can’t wait to wear this summer. I also finally got one of the new style My Little Pony toys! I had a really fun time shopping with my friend. Oh and when I grow the sloth toy I will be sure to post about it !

There you have it ! The things I loved about April 2020 !
Hello, my bucket list friends ! Some of you may remember that in February of last year I participated in a OCD study at Stanford. ( You can read some of my posts about it HERE,HERE and HERE) I thought I would be a good time to update all of you on how my mental health is doing over a year after participating in the study and receiving TMS treatment. Without further delay here we go !
OCD update ( over a year after TMS)
Not that long after the treatments I wrote a post ( You can read it HERE) about the positive impact that the TMS treatment had on my mental health. I wrote about how my OCD symptoms had been greatly reduced and that my overall mental health had improved. Well I’m very happy to say that things have stayed that way . OCD does not control my life the way it used to before I got treatment at Stanford. I feel much more in control of my mental health and my daily life in general. I’m able to brush off OCD’s attacks quickly. I still have some rough days like everyone dose but those seem to be few and far between. I’m so blessed that I was given the chance to participate in this study it has truly changed my life for the better.
Hello, my bucket list friends ! I’m excited to announce the book I’ve chosen for May 2020. This is the second book in the Light Heart book club and that book is Finally by Wendy Mass. I have so many books in my room that I have not read yet and this is one of them. I’m about thirty pages into the book and I’m excited to see what happens next. I’ll write a post discussing the book in detail sometime in mid or late May. During the discussion I will be answering questions about the book and suggesting activities to go along with the book if you have any questions of suggestions let me know in the comments.
