Hello, there! I am a Blogger with a bucket list, big dreams and a love of writing. Some of my favorite things to write about include self care, blogging, and pets.
A perfect cup of frozen yogurt
I may only be thirty-one going on thirty-two as I write this but I like to think that I have some stories that are worth telling. Some experiences we have in life can be retold to educate, inspire or even warn others. However some stories are just fun to tell and may put a smile on the face of the person hearing it. The story that I’m about to tell is one of those stories that I hope will put a smile on the face of the person reading it. The star of the story is my favorite summer food and that would be frozen yogurt of course. Our story takes place in the summer of 2019. Summer is my favorite time of year and frozen yogurt is one of my favorite foods so in other words this story is full of things that I consider to be my favorite things. So sit back and relax as you think happy thoughts. It all began when I was doing one of my normal daily activities scrolling through Instagram. I probably saw more than one hundred posts that day but I can honestly say that I only remember one post from my scrolling that sunny summer day. It was a post advertising a contest from Yogurt Land also known as my favorite frozen yogurt shop. I love going to yogurt land and creating fun and tasty frozen yogurt creations. For the contest you had to go to Yogurt Land create a cup of frozen yogurt and let you imagination run wild. Then all you had to do was upload the photo to Instagram using the hashtags provided. I consider myself to be a very creative person and I have been known to create some pretty good looking cups of frozen yogurt. One day after work I went to Yogurt Land and created what I called a Yogurt land mountain. I decorated my mountain with Chocolate, fruit, sprinkles, candy, and more. I still love looking at the pictures of my creation. After my fun and tasty trip to Yogurt Land I simply uploaded the picture to Instagram and followed the directions on how to enter. Well, it turned out that particular cup of beautifully decorated frozen yogurt was not just a perfect summer treat that looked good in pictures and helped you stay cool on hot days. That beautiful cup of frozen yogurt ended up winning me a hundred dollar gift card to yogurt land! I was very happy and kind of surprised. I ended up treating a good amount of people to frozen yogurt after that. This story is one of my favorite and sweetest summer memories. The best part is that one cup of frozen yogurt turned in to many more delicious and beautifully decorated works of art. Thank you for reading this happy story about my favorite summer food. I hope you have a great summer that is filled with many very beautiful and very tasty cups of amazingly decorated frozen yogurt. Here are reasons why frozen yogurt is one hundred percent the very best summer food ever made.
My dream life
If Day dreaming was considered a sport I would be An Olympic gold medal athlete. My mind is always wandering off thinking up all kinds of wild imaginary scenarios. One thing that I think is really fun to imagine is what my life would be like if it was exactly how I wanted it to be. I know that this is not realistic and not many people actually get to live their perfect dream life but it is still fun to think about. I know that the perfect life would look a little different for everyone. I decided that it would be fun to share my dream life online to hopefully inspire others to do the same. I would love to hear what other people’s dream lives would look like. In my perfect dream life I would live in Beverly Hills CA. In a house that I completely own. I would live on my own but I would let friends live with me if they wanted. I would have at least two cats and at least two rooms to keep all my collections in. I collect toys such as Barbie dolls, TY beanie babies, and Build a Bear Workshop brand plush. I have a hard time finding room for all of my collections so in my dream life they would for sure have their own rooms. As for my occupation I would be a writer/ actor. Every day I would get to use my imagination and let my creativity run wild. I would hardly ever have to use an alarm and I would live life on my own schedule. I would also travel a decent amount. I would have a second house in Orlando that I would go to whenever I wanted to visit Disney world. I would also have my dream car. An AMC pacer with automatic transmission any year is fine with me. It would probably have a good amount of bumper stickers on it. I would have many more good days then bad ones. I would have most of the items on my bucket list crossed off but I would always be adding to it. Also with all my time and money I would be helping others to live their dream lives as well. I would also be very active in church and host a Bible study at my house. Somethings wouldn't change though. I would still be drinking Starbucks more days than not and I would still be doing a lot of thrift shopping. I would never have to worry about money and I could give some to whoever needed it or heck I could give it to whoever wanted it. It's just pieces of paper after all. I don't think that there would be a typical day in my life. I would spend each day doing the things I love. I would be writing most every day. I would still be blogging of course but I would also be writing books. I have a few ideas for novels that I really wish I had the time to write. In my dream life I would have plenty of time to write. I could spend a whole month focusing on nothing but writing if I wanted to. I would also focus a lot more on my voice over acting. I would have a simply wonderful in home recording studio. I could see myself doing a pod cast as well. In addition to all of that I would have an art studio in my house where I could paint, draw and create works of art to my heart’s content. My walk in closet would be filled with graphic t-shirts, Flip-flops, Crocs with tons of charms on them, casual dresses and lots of colors. I would also have tons of pajama pants with all kinds of fun patterns. My dream life would be one that is exciting, colorful, creative, happy, carefree, and inspiring. What does your dream life look like?
My never list
I'm very open about my bucket list. I mean I have the whole thing published on my blog plus my blog has bucket list in the title! However, there is something that I'm not as open about and that is my never list. It's pretty simple it's just a list of some things I never want to do in life. Of course there are the obvious things that we hope to never experience in our life time. Such as life changing sickness and devastating losses and all the other tragedies that life can throw our way. However, this list isn't for those types of things. It's for specific things that I consider to be overrated; uninteresting or even scary the big reason why I mainly have kept this list to myself is because I don't want anyone to feel attacked. Some of my never items are other people's bucket list items! I'm sharing this list because I thought it would be interesting to write about another side of being a bucket lister. Please keep in mind that this is just my opinion and I'm not judging anyone. Also a never list is a good resource to have. If someone asks you to do something you are uncomfortable with, you can say nope, that's on my never list! I think that never lists are a fun thing to have in addition to a bucket list. If you have ever looked at someone’s bucket list and wondered why anyone would ever want to do one of the items listed or if you have ever felt like your idea of the perfect future is very different from most people’s idea of what life ideally looks like then you have started to create a never list without even knowing it! I think most people have lists like that in their heads but let me tell you that it feels much more real when you write you list down. It can be hard to share a list like this because there will probably be a lot of people who will not understand or even make fun of you. However I want to be more bold and open with my writing and I think sharing my never list is a good way to do that. Now, with all that said let's get into my official never list!
I got a Mohawk style hair cut to cross it off my bucket list.
People who know me know that crossing items off of my bucket list is one of my favorite hobbies. I’m always thinking about the next item that I want to cross off and planning when I’m going to do it. I started my bucket list back in 2012 and I began blogging about my bucket list in 2015. I've added many items to my bucket list over the years and I now have a total of three hundred items on my bucket list. I have crossed off what feels like to me a large number of items off my bucket list. However, I don't have the exact number. Some of my favorite items that I have crossed off my bucket list include meeting Alice Cooper, going to WrestleMania, going to Epcot, going to the Mall of America, becoming a vegetarian and winning first place in a contest or competition. Some items on my list are more anxiety inducing than others to cross off. Some items are as simple as a plane ticket and a hotel reservation or even as simple as a trip to the store. Other items require more planning and maybe even a pep talk. My most recent item that I crossed off my bucket list is one of those items that would be considered more daring then other list items. I had to give myself a lot of pep talks when it came time to cross this item off my list. I had not crossed any items off my list in 2022 and that was really bothering me so I decided to go for what I consider to be one the harder items on my list. I got my hair cut in a Mohawk style. Get a Mohawk is number 39 on my list. Since it is one of the earlier items on my list that means it is something that I haven wanted for a long time. I was so nervous when I went to go get my haircut. I had no idea how I would look with a Mohawk. I just knew that I had wanted one for a long time and that this was my chance to go for it. I ended up getting a short Mohawk style that is not shaved on the sides. It's very different from how I had my hair before and I was so nervous when I went to go get my haircut. As I was waiting for my turn I wondered if I should go through with getting a Mohawk. Maybe I should just leave or just get my hair shorter but not in a Mohawk style. However, I'm extremely happy to say that I completed this item and I'm so happy I did. I feel so pound of myself for pushing through my anxiety and completing this bucket list item. I kept reminding myself of how long I had wanted to do this. I was so determined that I went ahead and got what I wanted even though my anxiety tried to talk me out of it. I'm still getting used my new hair style but I do truly love it. I've gotten more compliments on my hair then I thought that I would. I love playing with my hair now and putting gel in it. It's so much fun to play around with. I love styling it in different ways. I am also very happy to say that I can still put bows in my hair and they still look super cute. Yes, this item was scary to cross off but I'm glad I did it and it will probably be nothing compared to crossing bungee jumping and sky diving off my bucket list!
60 Ideas for your summer bucket list
Summer is my favorite time of year, and I have a feeling that it will be here before we know it! I find that summer is the time of the year when the most fun happens. I love crossing items off my main bucket list, but I also enjoy making seasonal bucket lists as well. You can make these kinds of lists for an actual season or for a certain time period such as the school year or a vacation. I’ll be the first one to tell you that Bucket lists are a lot of fun to have, but it can be hard to come up with items that you want to put on your bucket list. I have put this list of sixty items together that will hopefully inspire you to write your own summer bucket list. Don't forget to add personal items to your own list. Such as spending time with a certain family member or celebrating your birthday. Also remember you can have just a few items on your list or a lot it's up to you. The most important thing is to have fun and have a great summer.

A love letter to bath bombs
It's February the month when we celebrate love! Loving yourself is one of the most important kinds of love that there is. It is easy to forget to take care of yourself in this crazy world. Self-care is more than a trend it's an essential part of preserving your mental health. There are many different forms of self-care. Some forms of self-care include exercising, keeping a journal and spending a day at the spa. I decided to write a love letter to one of the self-care items that I love the most! I used to just take showers until I discovered the relaxing powers of baths. Baths are great on their own, but they are pure luxury when you add other things to them like bubbles and bath bombs! Bath bombs come in many different colors, shapes, sizes, and scents. There is so much to choose from. It usually is not hard to find a bath bomb that is perfect for you. I hope my cute and fun love letter to bath bombs inspires you to add some beautiful bath bombs to your next bath or to at least put them on your shopping list.
Five reasons why I hate money
I'm just going to come right out and say it. I HATE money. Yes, I know it's an essential part of our society, but it has become obvious to me in recent years that money is a large source of negativity. It causes huge amounts of stress and can lead to some devastating choices. It is hard to meet someone who does not stress over money and that includes people who have a lot of it. From what I have personally observed money can have a negative impact on a person's life no matter how much or how little of it they have. I know it is unrealistic to want money to not exist, but I still hate it and here are five reasons why.
