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!
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.
Hello, my bucket list friends ! Summer has been both busy and fun this year and there is so much more to come! Before I get too far behind on my blog posts I wanted to tell you about what I did on Thursday. I went out to run some errands with my dad and while we were in the car I got a phone call I had been waiting for. Back in March my mom and I went to my favorite paint your own pottery place. ( You can read about it HERE ) The day we went was also the day they closed but they let us stay to finish painting. Recently they reopened and Thursday was the day that our art was ready to pick up! I was so excited to finally bring my art pieces home! After I picked up our art my dad and I went to Trader Joe’s where I got one of my favorite snacks pickle flavored popcorn! I only see it at Trader Joe’s during the summer. If you like pickles I highly recommend it! I’m just gonna end this post by saying yay for art and popcorn !
Hello, my bucket list friends! I’ve been into mysteries a lot lately. I just finished reading an American Girl mystery book and then I started another one. Also I have been watching a lot of Murder She Wrote reruns. Yesterday I ended up staring in my own mystery and I thought it would be fun to share it with all of you so here we go!
The missing money mystery
My mystery first started when I picked up my mobile order at Starbucks. When I was walking back to the car with my coffee in my hand I notice that the money that I knew I had in my pocket was not there. In a panic I looked everywhere ! In all my pockets ,in the car and in my purse. when I couldn’t find it I called my dad and asked him to look around the house . He couldn’t find it either . I even went back to the store that I had been in before Starbucks and it wasn’t there either. In all of my story telling I haven’t mentioned that it was $60.00 that I was missing. I’m mean it’s not like a million dollars but it’s still upsetting to loose. On the way home I still had some hope that it may be outside around the house somewhere . When I got out of that car I started looking right away and guess what? Right on the road in front of the driveway was my money! I was so happy that I had found it ! The money had fallen out of my back pocket and on the the road when I was going to the car. Mystery solved ! The big lesson in all of this is don’t put money in your back pocket ! This mystery had a happy ending but I hope from now on the Mysteries stay on TV and in books.
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 ! I live pretty close to the beach but I don’t go a lot anymore but this week I got to go. I went on a beach walk with my mom and my friend. It felt good to be back at the beach it had been a long time since I had last gone. I felt so free as I ran in the water. The water was actually surprisingly warm it’s usually very cold. I enjoyed seeing the sand castles that had been built. Also the beach we were at is a dog friendly beach. I loved seeing all the dogs running around and having a good time. Just like that dogs I saw, I had a really great time at the beach ! I hope to go over there more this summer !
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 !
