June summer fun catch-up 2022

Hello,my bucket list friends! I know it’s July already. However, during June I was so busy writing about my Colorado adventure that I didn’t have time to write about all the little summer adventures that June had in store. I have a big appreciation for all the little things in life that make me smile so without any more delay let’s get to it.

Father’s day- On Father’s day I went to lunch with my family. It was great to see my sister. We went to this burger restaurant that had a yummy veggie burger. After lunch we walked to and ice cream place. It was a beautiful and fun summer day.

Fun summer treats – I’ve enjoyed some fun summer treats this year. The one the stands out to me was these summer berry waffle ice cream bars from Häagen-Dazs. They are very tummy and I highly recommend them.

My new friend Dominic- My neighbor got a new horse named Dominic and we have become friends. I posted a reel of us on Instagram and it got over 4000 views.

Graduation at my work – At the beginning of June my work has a graduation ceremony for the pre-K class. We had a beautifully decorated stage and the kids did a great job singing the songs we practiced.

Thanks for reading about some of my summer fun in June

Mental health beach day

Hello,my bucket list friends! On Monday I took a mental health day. I have OCD and sometimes I’m in need of a mental health day. Monday was of of thoes days. On this mental health day I decided it would be a good idea to go to the beach. I live about 20 minutes or so from the beach but I don’t go very often and the weekends are the worst time to go due to the crowds. Since I had nothing else planned that day my mom and I along with one of our favorite dogs in the whole world went to one my favorite beaches. Even though it was a Monday the parking lot was full when we got there but we didn’t have to wait long for a space to become available. It was a beautiful summer day and it was so nice to walk along the beach and put my feet in the water. I took a lot of pictures and Axle (the dog) had great time running on the beach and saying hi to other dogs. My friend lives even closer to the beach then I do so she met us at the beach. It was great to see her. It can be hard to find time to spend with friends so I was very happy we got to spend some time together. After our walk on the beach my friend and I went to the little store by the parking lot. I was hungry after all that walking. I got some snacks and a cute turtle souvenire that was made out of shells. It was a good beach day I hope I can go again before summer ends!

Summer shopping fun 2022

Hello, my bucket list friends! This past weekend I had my summer mall weekend. This is a tradition of mine where I go to the Dollar Tree on Friday and then I go to the mall on Saturday. I love shopping and summertime. That is the main reason why I do this in summer. Plus it is a great idea to spend a hot summer day inside of an air-conditioned mall!

Dollar Tree- After work on Friday I went the Dollar Tree. I didn’t go to my favorite location because it was further away from my work. The location I went to is usually pretty disorganized and this time was no different. However, I still got a lot of great items. Some of my favorite items I got are two Hot Wheels monster truck toys, summer wall decorations, a 4th of July themed craft kit,a Barbie craft kit, summer stickers, and a My little pony coloring book. Yes, the store was disorganized but it was still very easy to find things to put in my basket. I was very happy with the items I  got. I also got some Jelly Belly brand sparkling waters. I love getting thoes when I go to the Dollar Tree.

Mall – On Saturday I visited my favorite local mall. The first store I went to was Claire’s. This store is always at the top of my list when I go to the mall. They have a clearance section and this great buy three get three free promotion. I bought some nice items here including some hair clips that have strawberries, ice pops, and watermelon slices on them. I also got this super cute movie theater themed earing set that was on sale. I was very happy about this super cute headband that I got too. After Claire’s I went to the candy store next door. I got two pieces of candy there. My next store was Old Navy where I was looking for flip-flops and a a new t-shirt and of course I found both. Old Navy has great flip-flops and I have a few of their graphic tees. Now, this next part is a lot of fun because I went to Build a Bear Workshop!! They have this collection called Heartables where you open a bag and see what animal you get to make. I got a very cute purple fox. I named her Violet Waves. She is super cute! After that I went to Daiso where I got some fun things. Including erasers that where shaped like sheep and stickers. While I was at the mall I went to this really good vegan place for lunch. One thing about this mall that makes it my favorite is that it has a Target in it. I went to Target and as always I found some great items. Some of my favorite things I got are a new Barbie doll, a slap bracelet ruler, a bag of erasers,and bath bombs that have prizes inside. I also went to Forever 21 where I got some cute socks. I also love taking pictures when I’m at the mall. I was happy to see some art and a floral display that made great backgrounds for photos. It was a warm day so I got a refresher at Starbucks before going home. It was a good mall day and I’m very happy with the items I got.

Thank you for reading about my summer shopping spree!

Hello, my bucket list friends! I hope you have enjoyed reading about my adventures in Colorado! In this post I talk about the day we left Colorado and some of my favorite things I did on this trip. Without any more delay let’s get to it!

Colorado day seven- This was the day we flew back home to California. At the airport I bought two more souvenires before I left this beautiful state. I got another snow globe for my collection and a very cute teddy bear that had pictures printed on it of some of the places we visited while in Colorado. This was a very unique bear from the other ones I have seen at airports before. We had a direct flight home and there was still plenty of day light left when we arrived home. When we landed in California we got Starbucks at the airport before going home.

My highlights! – there were so many amazing things that we go to see and do in Colorado but I decided to put together a list of my five favorites it was a hard decision to make but here it is!

1. Denver zoo

2. Denver art museum

3. Isak Heartstone

4. Royal Gorge Bridge

5. Denver selfie museum

Thanks for reading!

Colorado adventure June 2022 part 3

Hello, my bucket list friends!! It’s time for another post about my fun filled vacation to Colorado! In this post we continue our adventures outside of Denver. We explore some caves and ride a train plus a lot more. Let’s get to it.

Colorado day five – on the 5th day of our Colorado vacation we went on a drive to a very fun and interesting place called Glenwood Caverns adventure park! Our main reason for going here was to take a tour of the caves. There are two different caves you can tour here and they are both truly amazing. These caves are so beautiful and interesting. I really enjoyed looking at the caves. If you are ever near this place it is definitely worth checking out. There are also some rides here but we didn’t go on them. The way up to this amusement park is also a lot of fun because you take a gondola to the top of the mountain. I also went to the gift shop here. When we were ready to leave we had a little trouble because of winds we couldn’t take the gondola back down. So we had to wait a little bit. While waiting I got some ice cream. After a little bit of a wait it was time to ride the gondola back down the mountain and drive to out next adventure. We stopped at Starbucks on the way to see something really fun. The next thing I’m gonna tell you about became one of my favorite things I did in Colorado. My mom and I went to visit Isak Heartstone. Isak is a very large and very cute troll sculpture made from wood. Isak lives at the end of his own trail in Breckenridge Colorado. I had so much fun going to see this impressive sculpture. I just love the pictures I took there. This sculpture is so cute and impressive. I highly recommend going to see Isak Heartstone if you are ever in Breckenridge.

Colorado day six – this was our last full day in Colorado. Our adventure for this day was to ride the Cog railway up to Pikes Peak. Pikes Peak is a very well known attraction in Colorado you can drive or even hike there but for us the train seemed like the best option. It takes over an hour for the tain the get to Pikes Peak but it is worth it. There are some beautiful views from the train on the way up. There is a gift shop at the train station but I used the pressed penny machine at the station to make souvenires. Once we got up to Pikes Peak there was a good amount of snow up there. The views here are pretty amazing. However be prepared because there is a chance of altitude sickness when visiting Pikes Peak. There are some displays inside here as well as a gift shop where I got some postcards that you can color. I’m glad we went to vist Pikes Peak I got some wonderful pictures here. It was a great way to spend the last full day of vacation.
