A CPR class and lots of coffee

Hello, my bucket list friends! Another weekend is almost gone. This weekend went by really fast overall. Yesterday, I did an eight hour CPR class that I needed for work. It was slow at some points but it was very informative. I got coffee that morning before the class and after the class I went to Starbucks again. After Starbucks I went to Whole Foods and then Taco Bell.I spent the rest of the night relaxing Then that brings us to today. I took it pretty easy today. I wrote another article for Vocal Media and did some shopping for the week ahead. Oh and I got coffee today too. I’m sure that before I know it I’ll be writing a post about next weekend! Have a great week!

First October weekend 2021 and my dreams for the future

Hello,my bucket list friends! I’m gonna talk about this again. How is it October right now?? I feel like I need to start planning my blogmas posts before December sneaks up on me! Anyways the first weekend of October for 2021 is officially behind us. I thought it would make a good blog post to not only tell you what I did this weekend but to talk about the goals I’m working towards right now. Without any more delay let’s get to it.

My weekend- Friday was a tipcal work day. When I look at pictures of that day I’m reminded that.I had a peppermint ice cream sandwich that night. I got them from Safeway and they are truly amazing! On Saturday I went to two of my favorite places starbucks and Goodwill. The Goodwill that I went to was not very well stocked. However, I got some official American Girl clothes and some American Girl activity books and a brand new craft kit. I also went to Michael’s and I found some really cute stickers on sale. On Sunday my sister came to visit. We went to lunch at one of my favorite local places. I had some very yummy ravioli. After a very yummy lunch we had to get a few things at the hardware store. I was so happy to see that there were Christmas items in stock already. I got a snowman yard decoration. I can’t wait for Christmas time to finally get here. I also had fun working on the craft kit that I got at the Goodwill. It was a pretty good weekend overall.

My dreams- I consider myself to be a professional day dreamer. I’m always thinking about what I want to accomplish in my lifetime. I know now that I really want to work towards being a freelance writer. I’m working on getting my Fiverr account up and running so I can be a blogger for hire! I’m also going to continue to put articles on Vocal Media! I’m excited to see what I will write next.

Dollar Tree, the mall and new shoes!

Hello,my bucket list friends! Happy Sunday! Another weekend is coming to a close. I thought it would be fun to share my weekend adventures with you so here we go! On Friday I watched the new My Little Pony Movie on Netflix. It was a really good movie and I’m excited to see what adventures will be next for my new favorite ponies. I highly recommend checking out this movie. After work on Friday I went to the Dollar Tree. I got some more acrylic paint and other art supplies. I also got this unicorn play set that I had been wanting I also got some Christmas craft items. I know that they get bought up pretty fast so I decided to get them now. I want to do blogmas again this year and Christmas crafts make for great blogmas posts. Yesterday day I went to the mall. My main goal was to get new shoes because I have a ganglion cyst on my foot and if I wear anything that touches it even soft slippers,it hurts when I walk. I found one pair on shoes in my closet that didn’t touch the cyst. However I got these shoes around 2003 or 2004. They are pink platform slides. They are not the most comfortable on my foot so I needed to get something more comfortable that I could wear until I can get the cyst removed. I started my mall adventure at Target. I didn’t find any shoes there but I did get two Barbie dolls including a new color reveal doll and some foam My Little Pony toys. After Target we went to Famous Footwear and that’s where I found a very comfortable pair of Nike slides. I’m so happy that I now have a pair of shoes that won’t hurt my cyst but are also  comfortable to walk in. While I was at the mall, I went to Claire’s. I always love shopping their sale section. I bought some really cute earrings and a hair bow. My mom and I also got massages. It was a wonderful mall trip. That evening we had game night!I hope all of you are enjoying your weekends!

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.

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

Adding more lucky ducks to my collection

Last night I went out to eat with my parents and my friend. One of the things I love most about the restaurant we went is the arcade and at the arcade they have this rubber duck claw machine. It’s one of those games that is very easy to win and the give you lots of chances. On my first game of the night I got two ducks that are holding surf boards. I gave one to my friend. I played the game more and got even more cute ducks. There was one style of duck that I really wanted it was a duck holding a book. I kept trying to get this style of duck but I was not able to. At the end of our meal I deiced to try one more time and I got it ! I was so happy to get some new ducks for my collection including the very cute reading duck !

mission MBLEX accomplished

Hello , my bucket list friends as some of you may know I graduated from massage school back in October . (You can read about it here ) Even after finishing an intense one year program I still had a big hoop to jump through before I could officially become a massage therapist . I had to pass an exam know as the MBLEX. I first took the test back in December , I was unable to pass the first time and I was very upset about it . I cried a lot that day but I moved on from that and stepped up my studying and I took the test this past saturday and I passed it ! I’m so happy to be done with that test ! I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off me. I can’t wait to start working as massage therapist ! After I finish some more paper work I will be able to have two amazing careers ! I’m so proud of myself and I feel so loved from my family and friends ! Thank you all for you messages of congratuations !

Fun at the Oakland Zoo

Hello, my bucket list friends ! I got to do something really fun this weekend . I  went to the Oakland Zoo for the first time .  My mom and I had a great time exploring the zoo . Let’s getting going so I can tell you all about it .

 

 

Oakland zoo adventure April 2018

I have been to a  good amount zoo’s before including the San Diego and San Francisco zoo (both of those were bucket list items) but I had not gotten the chance to visit the Oakland zoo until last Saturday .  The zoo is about an hour away the traffic on the drive there  was not too bad but the zoo it’s self was very packed . I knew it would be that way though it was a very sunny Saturday and in the bay area lots of places where going to be packed but the crowds did not stop my mom and I from having a great time . The Oakland zoo is a pretty good-sized zoo and there are many animals to see . My favorite were the fruit bats ! They were so big ! They sleep upside down with their wings wrapped around them . It was amazing to watch them unwrap their huge wings ! I even got to see one eat a banana . I also enjoyed seeing the elephants , zebras and petting goats at the petting zoo .  We also stopped by the gift shop where I got a key chain a pencil , a reusable bag with a turtle on it and my favorite thing that I got was a new snow globe to add to my collection ! My mom and I had lunch at the zoo the veggie burgers were wonderful . We ended our trip to the zoo with are ride on the gondola the wait was long but the views where beautiful . If your ever in the area I recommend going to visit this fun zoo . I hope I get to go again sometime .

The great Monterey adventure March 2018

Hello , my bucket list friend and happy March ! There are many things that I love about my life and having wonderful friends is defiantly one of them. For the first weekend in March I got to spend a  fun-filled weekend in Monterey with my cousin Amanda and our friend Tamara. We had a great time and I can’t wait to tell you all about it  so let’s go !

 

Monterey March 2018

The day of our trip to Monterey started off with a stop for food then another stop to get our nails done . I had never been to the nail place that we went to but they did a wonderful job . I love my green sparkly nails and my cousin got nail polish that changes colors ! After getting our nails done we were on our way . When we got to Monterey our first stop was the Monterey bay aquarium . I had to been to the aquarium before but it had been a long time . The aquarium is really big and we all had a fun time exploring and looking at every thing from jellyfish to penguins . We also got to watch a diver feed some of the fish . After exploring and shopping at the aquarium we checked in to our hotel that was right along the beach ! After we took sometime to rest at the hotel we went out to eat and we all enjoyed some really good food and dessert . After eating and walking around we came back to the hotel. I’m sad to say that  I was not feeling very well so I stayed and rested while Amanda and Tamara went swimming . The next day started out with a short walk down to the beach . It was a beautiful sunny morning and the beach was fantastic, We all had a great time walking and running along the beach. After our adventure to the beach we went to breakfast at the black bear diner . I had never been to there before but after one visit I highly recommend it ! After checking out of the hotel we did a lot of exploring and some shopping around Monterey before having a very yummy dinner and heading back home . It was a very fun weekend and a wonderful way to celebrate Tamara’s birthday ! I hope you all have a great March ! Rock on – Christina Epperly
