Things I love April 2022

Hello, my bucket list friends! The month of April is over and gone already. It really feels like this year is going by extreamly fast. Before I know it I’ll be doing my year in review post! However we are not there yet. Now is the time to take a look back on all the awesome things I loved in April 2022.

Alice Cooper concert- This was for sure the biggest highlight of my month! It had been way too long since I went to a concert and I’m always in the mood to see Alice Cooper! This was truly a wonderful night! ( You can read more about it HERE)

Going to the Goodwill outlet – I’m so thrilled to say that I crossed an item off my bucket list this month. It was definitely an interesting experience. You can read more about it by clicking the link above.

Five Below – On the same road trip that took me to the Alice Cooper concert, I went shopping at Five Below. I don’t get to go this store hardly at all and it was really a great treat to get to go shopping here this month. You can read more about it by using the same link above.

Bath bombs from Etsy – I got some super amazing bath bombs from Etsy this month. They all had fun prizes inside of them! ( You can read about it HERE)

Jewel hair mermaid Barbie- I added this amazing doll to my collection this month. I got her from Ebay for a good price. Her hair is beautiful and so is her outfit. I’m very happy to have this beautiful 90’s doll in my collection.

Easter fun – I had a great time celebrating Easter this year! ( You can read about it HERE)

A fun trip to Target- I did a good amount of shopping this month but this trip to Target was a lot of fun! ( You can read about it HERE)

Instacart- I got three instacart deliveries this month! There where some toys and other fun items included in the deliveries! ( You can read more about it HERE and HERE)

Thanks for reading about my month. I hope you all have a wonderful May.

A road trip, Bucket list #245 and an Alice Cooper concert

Hello, my bucket list friends! I had a really wonderful weekend! I went on a mini road about a four hour drive away. The main reason for this road trip was to go see an Alice Cooper concert. I bought the tickets kind of last minute so the seats I got weren’t great but they were good enough and that’s good enough for me. My mom and I left on our weekend adventure on Friday when I got off of work. Before we got to our hotel, we stopped at five below. I’m a huge fan of discount stores but there is not a Five Below near me. I was excited that I had a chance to go here again. I got Barbie and My Little Pony toys here as well as some art supplies. I hope one of these stores opens close to me one of these days. After shopping at Five Below we went to Chili’s for dinner before going to the hotel. The next day was the day of the concert but we did have some time before then. I didn’t realize it before but as I was looking up things to do that day, I discovered that there was a Goodwill outlet in the same town where we were staying in. It was on my bucket list to go to the outlet so we decided to go check it out. It was not as big as I thought it would be and there was not as much stuff as I had imagined. However, I found some pretty great items. Some of my favorite items where, a Mary-Kate and Ashley brand hat, a cup with a Mickey Mouse pattern on it, two books that came with stickers, and a Disney button. It was an interesting experience. It was definitely very different from shopping at a regular Goodwill store. At the outlet you had to dig to find things. Epically the clothes and media such as books.  The prices here were the best part. Our total was under five dollars! It felt so good to cross another item off my bucket list. After my bucket list adventure we went to explore the mission San Louis Obispo de tolosa. We had a little bit of time before our tour started so we went to the gift shop. I got some nice souvenires there. It was a beautiful day to explore the mission. There was so much to see, like a well an oven, and bells. If you get a chance this mission is worth exploring. Plus there is also a museum inside. After exploring the mission we went to Whole Foods for lunch. After that we went back to the hotel to rest before the concert. The concert was at this amphitheater that was part of a winery. It was a very pretty venue. Before the show I waited in a very long line to get a t-shirt and hat but it was so worth it! I have a few Alice Cooper shirts but I hadn’t gotten a new one in a while. The show its self was amazing as always. I’ve been to a good amount of Alice Cooper shows and it’s always exciting! I loved singing along to some of my favorite songs like Escape, Poison, Bed of Nails, and School’s Out! I wish I would have been closer to the stage but I plan on getting a better seat the next time I go to one of his shows. However his show is always amazing no matter where I’m sitting! I plan on going to another show of his before the year is over. The next day it was time to head back home. We made a few stops before we officially got back home. Two of the places we stopped where Starbucks (as always) and the Madonna Inn. Outside of the Madonna Inn there was a really cool cow art piece that we took pictures with. It was a really awesome weekend.

Goodbye bubbles, a trip to the Goodwill and Easter fun

Hello, my bucket list friends! Another weekend has left us. Before we move on from it I wanted to share my adventures this weekend with all of you. I had one big event planned this weekend and that was the bubble run. I was excited to do the bubble run for the third time. It was a rainy and windy day and they kept pushing back the start start time. There were people who had earlier start times that had already done the race but unfortunately for us they ended up canceling the race for safety reasons. I was very disappointed but I did get to see my friends so that was good. After we left the race we made a stop at Starbucks and then we went home. Afer being at home for a little bit, I went shopping at the Goodwill. I wanted to do something fun after being disappointed with the run being canceled. At the Goodwill I found two amazing Barbie items. One is a helicopter and the other is a is car that opens up but I haven’t figured how to open it yet LOL! I also got three bath bombs, a plush dog purse, a Minnie Mouse watter bottle and more. After the Goodwill, I went to the Habit and got a coffee shake! I love their coffee shakes. It was a pretty alright day even if it didn’t go as planned. The next day was Easter Sunday I started the day by going to church I had the perfect Easter dress that I got at Savers. Later in the day I went my cousins house, we had a lot of amazing food and we also did an egg hunt. I still love doing egg hunts ! I’ll probably still be doing egg hunts when I’m 50!

Thanks for reading about my weekend!

Muir woods adventure 2/2022

Hello,my bucket list friends! On Wednesday, I went to Muir Woods,with my mom. It was both of our first times going there. It’s a very popular place and reservations are required. It was on the colder side on the day for our visit but it was still a beautiful day. Muir woods is definitely worth seeing it is a truly beautiful area. There are so many beautiful redwoods there. We went on a hike that was not very difficult but it was amazing! There are different trails that you can chose from. If I ever go back to Muir Woods I wonder what trail I will go on. There is so much to see here, beautyis all around you. There were a lot of plaques that told you about different things in the park such as the animals there and historical facts. Before we went on our hike we went to the cafe for coffee and the gift shop for souvenirs. I have so many great pictures from this day. Some of my favorite pictures I got were of the sun shining through the tress. On the way back to the car, I stopped and took pictures whith this wooden sculpture that depicted the wingspan of different birds. This a place that is definitely worth visiting especially for nature lovers! Another fun thing about this day was driving over the Golden Gate Bridge. We also explored the Suto Baths in San Francisco. This is also a very interesting place that is worth checking out. It was a great day of exploring and I can’t wait for another day like this.

Disney on ice 2/2022

Hello, my bucket list friends! Yesterday, I went to see Disney on ice and it was a lot of fun! The other time I went to Disney on ice I was very young and I don’t remember much. I was excited to see a Disney on ice show as an adult so maybe I could remember it a little more. I loved watching Minnie and Mickey skate around and it was even more fun when Goofy joined them. During the show many Disney movies were highlighted including the Little Mermaid, Aladdin, and Cinderella. The costumes were also amazing! It goes without saying that the music was great! One my favorite songs they was was Under the Sea from the Little Mermaid. I got two souvenires from Disney on Ice, a water bottel and a crown with mouse ears on it. I really enjoyed this show and I hope to go to another one sometime. If your a Disney fan of any age I would recommend going to see Disney on ice.

Idaho adventure December 2021!

Hello, my bucket list friends! I’ve been meaning to write this post for a while now and it looks like I finally have the to time and energy to do it! It can be hard when you have a lot to write about but not a lot of energy to write it! Anyways last month I went to Idaho to visit family. I try to make more then one trip to Idaho every year if I can. In 2021 I went 3 times! I’m pretty happy with that. On this trip to Idaho there was a lot of snow and because of that I didn’t get to do an activity like going to the zoo or a museum. However,I did get to see family, go the movies, and go thrift shopping. It had been a while since I had gone to the movies it was definitely good to go again. We saw American Underdog. It was a pretty good movie. For thrift shopping we went to the Idaho youth ranch. I got some pretty cool things there including an American Girl Games and Giggles book,some 101 Dalmatians toys and a Disney snow globe. I also got to use a 3-D printer for the first time! I love the turtle that I got to color with paint pens. I also enjoyed taking pictures in the snow! I love the way snow looks in photos! I also got to see some very cute animals. A fun trip to vist family was a good way to end the year.

Florida vacation 2021 part six

Hello,my bucket list friends! Here we are at the the six and final part of my Florida vacation posts! This part is going to be a little different from the others because we didn’t go to the Disney Parks or Disney springs on this day of our trip. We decided to explore Florida outside of Disney world. We signed up for a tour that lasted most of the day. After we got picked up by the tour company,we headed to our first adventure of the day. We got to go swimming with sea cows! Since the weather was warm the day ,there were not many of them around. However we got to see one very cute sea cow! She was happily eating. It was a cool experience. I enjoyed the boat ride a getting to  swim. Our next tour stop was my favorite Homosassa Springs wildlife state park. I loved looking at the animals here. There were so many beautiful birds.there was also a hippo and a Bear. We didn’t have whole lot of time here but I really enjoyed the time we had. There was also a gift shop here. I’m gald we had a little bit of extra time to fo shopping before getting back in the tour van. I Really want to go back here someday. Our last tour stop was to go on an air boat ride. Air boats are very fun to ride in. It kind of felt like a roller coaster at some points. I would like do this again as well. That evening my mom and I went shopping at the Disney character where house. This store sells discounted items from the Disney parks. When I saw that we were close to one. I  really wanted to go. I got some fun items here including a 2021 pin. The next day we went back home. We missed our first flight because of a very long line. However we made it home safe the day we had planned on. Thank you so much for reading my Florida adventure!

Florida vacation 2021 part one

Hello,my bucket list friends! I’m super excited to tell you all about the very fun vacation I went on recently. My vacation started when my parents and I arrived in Orlando on December 4th. We checked into Disney’s all star music resort. I love the way this resort is decorated. It’s a true work of art. On the evening we arrived I got a refillable mug at the cafeteria and some awesome items at the souvenir shop. The next morning we went to Disney’s Animal Kingdom. My favorite attraction at Animal Kingdom is Kilimanjaro Safaris. This ride feels like a real safari because there are real animals. I loved seeing the giraffes,elephants and lions. My favorite show at Animal Kingdom is festival of the Lion King. The Lion King is my favorite movie. I loved seeing some of the characters from the movie as well as hearing songs from the movie. I also really enjoyed the new show called kite tails. It was Lion King themed as well. It was a very unique show and I hope Disney does more kite shows in the future. As always I did some shopping two of my favorite things that I got that day were a hat and a popcorn bucket. Popcorn buckets are a good thing to get in Disney world because they have low cost refills during the length of your trip. Another exciting thing we did that day was eat at the rainforest Cafe. I love the rainforest Cafe but there is not any locations close to me. It’s always a fun place to eat and the pasta I had there was really good. After having a fun day In Animal Kingdom, I went swimming at the piano pool at our hotel. I loved that there was a little mermaid statue next to the pool. Thank you for reading this part of my Florida vacation.

My second time in Disney world!

Hello,my bucket list friends! I just returned from a fun vacation to Florida! Disney World was the main focus of this vacation but we also did a really fun tour that included getting to see different kinds of animals! I will be doing more posts about this vacation however for now I wanted to make a quick post about some some the highlights. We went to all four Disney World parks. Epcot is my favorite park and I’m really happy that I  got to go there again. I also really enjoyed Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Disney springs. I did a good amount of shopping and enjoyed some shows at the Disney parks. On the downside the crowds were higher then they were the last time we went to Disney World.  Even with the crowds it was still a fun vacation and I’m excited to tell you more about it in future posts. For now I’m going to post some pictures from my adventure to Florida. Thanks for reading!

Idaho October 2021 part 2

Hello,my bucket list friends! It’s time for part two of my October 2021 Idaho adventure. This part of my adventure takes place on Halloween. We started the day with a trip to Starbucks then we went to lunch with family. Every Sunday my Idaho faimly goes to the same restaurant. It’s cool how the staff there knows them. After a very yummy lunch my mom and I went with my aunt and uncle to get ready for a trunk -or-treat event at a fair ground. My aunt brought her two mini horses to the event. It was so cute to see them and the other mini horses dressed up. I went trunk-or -treating because you are never too old to have fun! I loved going around to all the different stations and getting candy. I dressed up in my Coca-Cola polar bear pajamas. I was nervous that someone would say something to me since I’m 31 years old but no one did. They also had games to play I got some prizes including a cute plush bunny. It was one of the best Halloween nights that I have ever had. The next day we came back home. It was a great trip to Idaho.

Thanks for reading!
