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.

Bucket list items I crossed off in Los Angeles 2021

Hello, my bucket list friends! I had so much fun exploring Los Angeles in July. I did a few of posts about it but what I didn’t mention was some of the places I visited were actually bucket list items! I wanted to highlight them in their own post so let’s get to it.

Visit the Getty Center 277 – I would love to visit this beautiful place again. It is filled with so much amazing art.

Take a bus tour of Hollywood 253 – I took two bus tours while I was in Los Angeles. They were both a lot of fun. I especially liked the one that took us up the hills where the celebrities live.

Visit the Griffith observatory 276 – Amazing views and interesting exhibits this a place to add to your list if you are in Los Angeles

Go to the Grove in Los Angeles 238 – The American Girl store here was so much fun to explore! I wish I lived closer to this location. I would visit as much as I could.

See the La Brea tar pits 226 – This was a very interesting place to visit. I enjoyed seeing the tar pits as well as the exhibits inside the museum.

Thanks for reading! Happy bucket listing!

Virtual 5k bucket list #290

Hello, my bucket list friends! I’m excited to say that I’ve crossed another item off of my bucket list! I enjoy doing 5ks so I was excited to see what doing a virtual 5k would be like. I did my 5k through a website called virtual run. There are many different 5k themes to choose from. I chose the flamingo one because I loved the medal.Once I signed up for the 5k all I had to do was wait for my number and medal to arrive. One thing that I really like about virtual runs is that you can chose your own time and place. You don’t have to get up early or worry about the weather. For my 5k I chose a trail that I’m familiar with and enjoy walking on.I brought my medal and my number with me as I went on one of my favorite walks. I walked most of the way and finished in an hour and ten minutes. I was so happy to put the medal on when I finished. There are many cute medals to chose from I may just have to do another virtual run sometime!

Bucket list #294 Go shopping at the Gilroy Outlets

Hello, my bucket list friends! I’m super happy to say that yesterday I crossed another item off my bucket list. The last time I went to the outlets,a lot of the stores were closed. However this time the stores I wanted to visit were open.My mom and I started our outlet adventure with the Disney store outlet. I’ve been to the Disney store before but not the outlet. They had good deals on a lot of items including some items from the theme parks. My favorite thing that I got was a mouse ear headband that was summer themed. After that we went to Claire’s. This location had a pretty large clearance section I enjoyed looking through all the items especially the ones on sale. I was able to find some really great accessories and one of the best curly straws I’ve ever seen in my life! After those two stores we went to go visit the California welcomeCenter again. I’ve been here once before and I love looking through all the travel brochures that they have. I had a lot of fun crossing this item off my list and I hope to go back to the Gilroy outlets sometime.

Hello, my bucket list friends ! I’m very excited to announce that I’ve crossed off my first buck list item of 2021! Monday, I went on an adventure to three local playgrounds. The first park that I went to is one that I go to pretty often but it’s been a while since I’ve gone on the playground. The second park I visited I been two once or twice but it’s been over a year. As for the third playground, I can’t remember ever going to it. However I saw it all the time because it by a gas station that we go to. The weather was perfect for crossing off this item.

Seattle fun!

Hello,my bucket list friends ! I’m currently on vacation in Hawaii as I write this post. Before I got to Hawaii I had what I’m calling the best layover ever! When my parents and I arrived in Seattle we were unable to continue on to Hawaii due to their new travel requirements. We ended up spending the night in Seattle so we could have time to meet the new requirements. Since it was morning when we arrived in Seattle I saw it as an opportunity to explore the city and even cross some items off my bucket list.

Seattle fun!

Since we only had one day to explore Seattle, my mom and I decided to get a combination ticket that would let us explore two different attractions. The first attraction the we went to was the Space Needle. The views of the city from the Space Needle are simply amazing! It’s a great place to take pictures and it also has a really big gift shop! After exploring the Space Needle we went to the Chihuly garden and glass museum. The art here is very beautiful. I loved the colors and the creativity. I highly recommend both of these attractions if you visit Seattle.

While I was in Seattle I crossed three items off my bucket list! Here are the items I crossed off my list!

#230 Drink coffee in Seattle

#240 Go the Space Needle in Seattle

#285 Visit  Chihuly Garden and Glass

Fun bucket list art !!

Hello,my bucket list friends! I’m excited to tell you that I’ve crossed another item off my bucket list ! This item was pretty easy to cross off and it was also a lot of fun! Without anymore delay let’s dive on in!

Fun Bucket list art !!

The item that I recently crossed off is number 231 make a sharpie tie-dye shirt. I saw this craft on Pinterest and I thought that it would be a fun addition to my list. For this craft all I needed was a white shirt , Sharpie markers and rubbing alcohol. I started off by drawing on the shirt. I let my imagination run wild. I loved how colorful the shirt was when I finished drawing on it. Then it was time to spray the shirt with rubbing alcohol to make the colors spread out like tie-dye. As I sprayed the shirt I noticed that some colors seemed to spread out more than others. I probably should have done this project outside because when I sprayed the shirt it soaked through the blanket on my bed. Anyways I like the way the shirt looks and I’m glad I did this art project. Thanks for reading!
