Looking back on my winter bucket list! ❄️

Good morning! 

I was reading a post from LA which was about checking in on her winter bucket list. I thought this was such great idea to go back to your winter bucket list and see if you accomplished anything on there. Plus, winter is basically over and I have already started on my spring bucket list so there’s no better time to do this than now!

My list:

  • Drink hot chocolate and watch a movie in my pj’s w/ my husband yes, did this a lot of times.. maybe just once with hot chocolate though
  • Bake cookies and decorate them (sprinkles, frosting, etc) did bake cookies, just didn’t do the decorating part like I wanted to
  • Go see Christmas lights at least 3x yes! Saw many Christmas lights
  • Buy presents for family, wrap them, and put them under the tree yes! Had a post about this too, hours and hours of wrapping, but worth it
  • Go ice-skating we went at least 2x
  • Visit Chicago and see the lights + ice skate we did end up going to Chicago and we did get to see all the lights, but the line to ice skate was like 2+ hours and we weren’t going to wait that long so maybe next year
  • Plan an upcoming vacation yes, planned our Gatlinburg, TN trip 
  • Watch as many movies as I can during my free time YES! Watched sooooo many movies it was ridiculous. I think 2018 was the year I became a movie lover 
  • Write my 2019 goals yes + got a planner and updated it to the max
  • Decorate a gingerbread house with husband no, didn’t end up doing this sadly 
  • Scrapbook was able to sit down and do it once, but I needed more supplies so until next time
  • Read yes! I actually got to read a lot this winter and I’m super proud of myself because I used to NEVER read books 

I’d say I got most of this list done, the couple things I didn’t get to do was probably because we decided not to do it! Before I found my list, I really thought I wasn’t going to end up checking any of these off because usually I write a super long list and end up doing like 2 things only. I’m surprised, but it was a fun winter so it makes sense! 🙂

Thanks LA for the great idea! Everyone should check her page out, she’s awesome! 

Spring bucket list! 🌸

Hi all!

It’s officially the first day of spring!!! Just like for any season, you have to have a bucket list for this season too. Writing this list has made me so excited for spring, so here we go! 

  • Fly a kite
  • Take pictures of the pretty trees + flowers blooming
  • Have a nice picnic around the pretty colors
  • Go on a random road trip or two
  • Visit the farmers market
  • Rollerblade lots and lots in the park
  • Make a bird feeder (we have bird food, just never got around to making them a house)
  • Take our niece and nephew to the park 
  • Plan out April and May in my planner
  • Spend time outside as much as I can, soak up the warm sun
  • Go to the Botanical Gardens
  • Buy fresh flowers
  • Make our front/back yard look nice
  • Look for bunnies
  • Have a BBQ at the park
  • Take lots of photos of my husband and I outside
  • Plan our California trip
  • Plan our 2-3 summer trips
  • Prank my husband for April Fool’s Day
  • Keep the windows open at home as much as we can, let the fresh air flow in
  • Set up our patio table and chairs
  • Read on my Kindle outside
  • Feed ducks
  • Visit 2-3 zoo’s outside of our city
  • Get an Banana split ice cream and eat it with my husband at the park

So far this is my list, I think if I remember anything else I’ll just add it. It’s not a super long list so I think I can accomplish it. You can tell I just want to spend a lot of time outside! 

Have you guys created your spring bucket list yet?? Anything you think I should add to mine? Let me know in the comments!! 🙂

My Winter bucket list ❄️

Every Winter, I write this little bucket list of things I want to do and most of the time, half of the stuff on there doesn’t get crossed off! This time, I’m making it a bit shorter so that maybe I will be able to cross more things off. I love the holidays and the warmth it gives me, so this list is essential to me.

My list:

  • Drink hot chocolate and watch a movie in my pj’s w/ my husband
  • Bake cookies and decorate them (sprinkles, frosting, etc)
  • Go see Christmas lights at least 3x 
  • Buy presents for family, wrap them, and put them under the tree
  • Go ice-skating
  • Visit Chicago and see the lights + ice skate 
  • Plan an upcoming vacation
  • Watch as many movies as I can during my free time
  • Write my 2019 goals
  • Decorate a gingerbread house with husband
  • Scrapbook
  • Read

So there’s my super short list. I think I can do most of the things on here, I really want to go see the lights in Chicago and ice-skate, but if it’s too expensive we may save that for next year.

What’s on your list? 🙂

Exploring Death Valley – on my bucket list!

If you have never visited Death Valley before, there is a reason that it has this name. There is not a lot of life here and with the hot temperatures and lack of water, a lot of animals, including humans, can end up dead if they are not careful. 656 more words
