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!

One busy weekend!

Hello,my bucket list friends! It’s time for another weekend blog post! This weekend was pretty busy as you can see from the title. Let’s start with Friday. On Friday evening I went to the Goodwill. I needed to get a dress for a work event but of course I had to see if there was anything I wanted to add to my collection. I think someone donated a TY collection to the Goodwill because I got two Beanie Buddies and a few Beanie Babies. My other fun find was a mini paint set it’s just so cute! Oh and about the dress I mentioned earlier, I found one that I love. It still had the tags on it. I was so happy that I decided to get a dress that night. After the Goodwill I went to Panera Bread and Walgreens. At Walgreens I got a Barbie puzzle and a squishy toy. On Saturday, I went to Starbucks then I went to Barnes and Noble where I got some great books. One of the Barbie books I got came with stickers. After that we went to a baby shower for my cousin. It was great to see everyone and the decorations were so cute! The day had been pretty busy already but it was not over yet! There was a gathering going on in my neighborhood. The big highlight of that neighborhood gathering was that there were so many dogs there! I love being around dogs especially happy ones! Sunday was another busy day. I spent most of the day with my friend. We started off the day by going to church. It was my first time at this church but my friend had been there before. I really liked the church that we went to and I hope to go back again sometime. After church we went to the Goodwill,Subway and Starbucks. At the Goodwill I got a Barbie doll and an American Girl book. We ended the day by going to a Mexican restaurant. It was great to spend a day with my awesome friend. There you have it my jam-packed weekend. Thanks for reading!

CVS,Target and other fun things!

Hello, my bucket list friends! This is just a post about my adventures this weekend. I like to start these posts with Friday. Yes, I know that technically Friday is not part of the weekend but it feels like it so I like to include it. Anyways, on Friday during my lunch break I walked to CVS. They had some cute Valentines day items available so I got a few including some cute stamps and a cup with a attached straw. Friday night was pretty relaxing. On Saturday I went to Target. I got two new Barbies for my collection. One of them was on sale for under 10 dollars! The other one can switch from mermaid hair to unicorn hair! Another thing I got was these Barbie surprise containers. One of them had a Barbie hair tie inside. I was really excited when I saw it. I got Starbucks on Saturday too!Target plus Starbucks equals a good day! I also went on two walks Saturday! The weather was so sunny and beautiful it almost felt like summer! Oh I also went to Safeway where I got some dinosaur shaped pasta. On Sunday I got Starbucks and I got gummy candy at trader Joe’s. I look forward to many fun weekends in the future!
