This weekend put me in a Christmas state of mind

Hello, my bucket list friends! Another weekend has gone by so it is time for another post about my weekend. This Post however has a little bit of a theme. I know it’s not even Thanksgiving yet but I’m in a Christmas state of mind! My weekend kind of ended up having a Christmas theme to it. I’m already looking forward to the Christmas fun that is going to be coming my way next month. Without any more delay let’s get to my Christmas themed weekend.

Friday – I had work on Friday but before that I went and got Starbucks. I got one of the Christmas themed cups. Starbucks is also in a Christmas state of mind. After Starbucks I went in to work. I really enjoy my work now so my days are much happier then they were before. I now work at Urban Remedy and they have amazing food. They are worth checking out if your are looking for some healthy and yummy food. After work I went to Walgreens. I had a big project that I was working on and I needed to get some items for it. My church participated in Operation Christmas Child this year. If you have never heard of Operation Christmas Child, Let me give you a quick explanation. Basically you are giving a child a shoebox full of Christmas presents. You chose a gender and age range and then fill the box with items with that in mind. I put together three shoe boxes. I needed to get some more items for the boxes so that was my main reason for going to Walgreens. I also got some items for myself while I was there. The Christmas section at Walgreens was full of fun items. I got a plush reindeer, a gingerbread man toy, and a art kit. I’m happy to say that I got many great items for the shoe boxes. This little shopping trip was a great way to start the weekend.

Saturday – I did have work on Saturday but I did have some time before work to get Starbucks and go for a walk in the park. The park that we have been walking at lately has become one of my favorites because it has a playground it is usually not very busy. While I was at work I tried the Sour Patch Kids popcorn that I got at Five Below. I will make a post reviewing the popcorn but I will say that I did like it. On my lunch break at work I walked to a toy store. I’m so happy that I work with in walking distance to a toy store now. Toy stores are something that definitely go well with Christmastime. This toy store was in a Christmas State of mind right along with me. They were many Christmas items available however the items I ended up getting were not Christmas themed. One of the items I got could be considered a Christmas item because it would make a really good stocking stuffer. It was something that I don’t remember seeing before. It’s called Play Foam Pals. It is a container of play foam with a toy hidden inside. I also got some stickers and two animal shaped erasers. That night after work I opened up the play foam and saw that there was a penguin inside. I’m happy that I went to the toy store on my lunch break because it became the highlight of my day.

Sunday – Sunday was another work day for me. I Started my day just like I did the day before. We got coffee then went on a walk at the same park. After that I went to work and I had a good day. It was a shorter shift so I didn’t have a lunch break. However, after work my mom and I went to Safeway to pick up a few things. Safeway had their Christmas items displayed in different areas of the store. In the frozen food isle I was surprised to see the Barbie Color reveal advent calendar. It looked similar to last year’s advent calendar so I had to look it up and make sure it was a different one. Once I saw that it was I decided to get it. Once I got it down from the top on the freezer I saw that there was a different Barbie advent calendar behind it. It took me a little bit but I decided to get the color reveal advent calendar that I had originally saw. It was truly a good way to end the weekend.

Thank for reading about my weekend! I hope you had a wonderful and that you have beautiful week!

Merry Christmas 2021!!

Hello,my bucket list friends! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! Things have been pretty busy lately but I wanted to do a quick post about my Christmas Eve, Christmas day, and the day after. Let’s start with Christmas Eve. One thing that was different about this Christmas Eve is that I went thrift shopping. I don’t think I’ve ever been thrift shopping on Christmas Eve until this year! I got some great items including a American Girl planner, a Coca-Cola polar bear plate, and a Barbie book. The item that I’m the most excited about was one that I have been wanting for a while. It’s a Build a Bear Darth Vader bear. It’s just so cute! I’m so happy I got him. On Christmas Eve night we went out to eat with my sister. It was nice to try a restaurant that we had never gone to before. I enjoyed the food here. On Christmas day we stayed home and did traditional Christmas things like open presents and had a big awesome dinner. I had a good Christmas this year. It was good to slow down and relax for a while. The day after Christmas we did some errands. We went to Starbucks and Whole Foods. I also got my new microphone put up on my desk. I haven’t got it work yet but it looks cool! Thanks for reading!

Blogmas day 24 Christmas ornament DIY.

Hello, my bucket list friends! Today I decorated a Christmas ornament. I got the main part of the ornament from the Dollar tree I filled the ornament with pom poms that also came from the Dollar Tree. After I put the pom poms in the ornament I knew it needed a little something else. I found some glitter glue in another Christmas ornament kit and I used that to decorate the outside of the clear plastic ornament. I’m happy with the way this project turned out but it is still drying at the moment. Have you ever done any DIY Christmas ornaments?

Blogmas day 19 Christmas Barbie !

Hello, my bucket list friends! Earlier this month I got a Christmas themed Barbie from Target. Today was the day I finally took her out of the box. I just have to say I love her earrings and I love her dress. I would wear a dress like hers but I’d have to pass on those high heels! I also really like the cardboard background that came with this doll . Maybe I’ll use it for an arts and crafts project. Have you seen any cool Christmas themed toys this year?

Blogmas day 13 wooden gingerbread house

Hello, my bucket list friends ! As I write this I’m standing in a long line to get into whole foods. So I thought now would be a good time to catch up on my blogmas posts.  I was looking through my craft kits and I found this super cute wooden gingerbread house craft kit. This kit included wooden gingerbread people in addition to the house. It also came with markers to color the wooden pieces. The small markers that came with this kit worked surprisingly well. They didn’t run out of color as used them to decorate the wooden pieces. I enjoyed doing this craft kit and I’m happy with they way it looks. Have you ever done a craft kit similar to this one ?
