Goodwill, Savers and an amazing find!

Hello, my bucket list friends! I’m excited to tell you about my latest thrift shopping adventures. Including one item that I’m very happy that I found. On Thursday I went on a quick trip to Goodwill. I I got some great items including a Melissa and Dad craft kit, a Barbie book that still had the stickers in it, and a set of Disney markers that came from the theme parks. I’m excited to use the Melissa and Doug craft kit that I got. I love the wooden heart-shaped beads. On Friday after work I went to Savers. When I walked over to the toy section I saw a large horse toy on the shelf. I wonder if it could be an American girl horse toy because it seemed large enough. I went over and looked at it and sure enough the tag on the leg said American girl. I was so excited! I love finding American Girl products but I was super excited to find this one. I think I’m going to do a photo shoot with my dolls and the horse. My other savers finds include some ’90s Beanie Babies, some Barbie dolls including one with a really awesome hair, a spin art kit, a set of Lisa Frank erasers,and a Christmas plate from the ’70s. I had a lot of fun at Savers and I spent more time there than I thought I did. I wonder what my next big thrift find will be.

Buying a Barbie color reveal doll on Poshmark

Hello, my bucket list friends! It’s official I’m obsessed with Barbie color reveal dolls! There are quite a few series of these dolls. Some of them were released before I started buying them. So I went on Poshmark and bought a doll from an older series. This was a weather series where each doll represents a different kind of weather. I got the rain doll. She came with a beautiful rainbow wig. I’m really happy with the doll I got. I wonder which doll I will reveal next.

Strawberry funnel cake Frappuccino review

Hello, my bucket list friends! It’s time for food review! When I heard about the new Strawberry funnel cake Frappuccino at Starbucks I new I just had to try it! I’m a huge strawberry fan so I was excited to try this strawberry treat. Before I get into my review I want to say that I did order this drink with almond milk instead of the default whole milk. When I first took a sip of this drink it tasted like a maple flavor. It took me a second to realize that flavor was funnel cake part of the drink. There was strawberry flavor through out the drink but the maple flavor was the strongest flavor that I tasted. I did enjoy this drink and I finished all of it. It was definitely worth trying but the Carmel Frappuccino is still my favorite!

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.

Thanks for reading
