Part of Me | Bucket List

Hope Squared

That's right. It's happening. For the first time in about a year, you get to watch me VLOG! [video log]
I'm getting a little personal and talking about my Bucket List!
So watch it, enjoy it, and join in on the fun by clicking the button above!

The reason I titled this post Part of Me is because 1) It's Katy Perry week on my blog [mmhmm!] and 2) this past year has been one heck of a ride for me.

That's where this bucket list came in.
This is my life and I will never, ever let anyone dull my sparkle again.

Like Katy Perry said in her movie, "this is my second chance."
God is giving me this time as a single woman to accomplish so many of the things in my heart.
I have been taking advantage of this time and have already checked off many of the "me" things I've wanted to do.
In just this past month, I bought a new car and started acting again!
And now my bucket list awaits!

I owe it to myself to continue glowing.
To never, ever allow another person into my life who has or will put me out.
This life is too short and there is too much happiness to be had and things to experience...
Fully, whole-heartedly, and with bright eyes.

So, here's to the part of me that's always been here and always will be.
The girl with a big heart and big dreams.
No matter what.

Thank you, Katy for this song. I think it goes without saying that it is the number one most-played song on my iTunes playlist :)
Katy Perry Day One and Day Two.

You look so at home in front of the camera :)

This was so fun! I am kind of shocked about the last thing you "admitted" buuuuut I totally agree about the driving cause that has always seemed like it might be fun to try at least once. I'd love to learn how to do stunt driving!

First of all- that room you are in is so cute, I love it! I really enjoyed watching your vlog! I always love finding other VA bloggers, I just followed you :)

First off that headboard is just too cute! {I am assuming it's a headboard?} I envy how comfortable you are in your vlog, and it was really cool to hear your bucket list!

My mom and I watched Long Island Medium together too. She lost her mom just recently and her dad while she was in labor with me {no one told her he was sick...long story} so it is on my non existent bucket list to get her a medium.

Anyway I divulge haha. Great post!

Holly said...

OMG, you do look like Shawn Johnson! I didn't notice that before! And I too want to move to California! I've never been, but I'm so intrigued by it and the beautiful pictures I've seen! We can travel together any time! I love traveling and want to see the world :)

Is it creepy that I like to hear what bloggers sound like? You sound just as sweet in person as you do in emails! I love you, hun! xoxo

P.S. I just loved how you incorporated Katy Perry's song into this post. I think it's a perfect song for you :) Get your shine on, girl!

I'm sorry to hear about all your heartbreak, but at least inspired you to something bigger! Better!

Just look at all the tings you listed.

And you look so great in your vlog!

Your such a strong girl. I couldn't have done this after what you've been through. I would love to adopt another dog once we get a bigger place. My boys love our dog. Thanks for linking up with us!
