One weekend two years

Hello, my bucket list, friends! This is one of those what I did on my weekend posts, but  this weekend is a little different. Due to January first being on Sunday, this weekend was split into two years, which is kind of fun if you think about it. Since I did something fun on Friday, I decided to include Friday in my weekend post. Without any more introduction, let’s get this post started!

Friday – On Friday the 30th, I had work, but of course, before work, I went to Starbucks to get my before work coffee. Then, it was time to work. Work went well, and I was excited when my shift was over because after work, I was going to the Dollar Tree! I had not been to the Dollar Tree recently, so I was excited to shop at one of my favorite stores. The main purpose of my trip was to get some things for my friends’ Christmas gift. Of course, I also wanted to see what fun things I could find for myself as well. I was very happy with the items that I found for myself and for my friend. Some of the items I got for myself included two Disney bracelet kits, a Barbie activity pack, a wooden craft kit, and a hair bow. This quick shopping trip was a good way to start my weekend.

Saturday –  Saturday was the last day of 2022, and I had some plans to end the year with some fun! One of the most fun things you can do at any time of the year is to have a sleepover with your friend! It can be hard to find time to spend with your friends so it was really special that my friend and I were both available for a two night sleepover. The fun started when I met my friend at Target. We wanted to get snacks for our New Year’s celebration. Target is one of my favorite stores, so I was excited to see what fun things I could get  in addition to snacks for our sleepover. I was happy to see the selection of Valentine’s Day items that they had already. I got some fun Valentine’s Day items, including heart-shaped hair clips, a duck toy that says love on it, a heart-shaped Slinky, and a Valentine’s themed Pez dispenser I also got a cute plush cat that has a clip on it. I may put it on my purse. This Target has a Starbucks inside of it, so we stopped there and got coffee on the way out. When we got to my friends house we decided to go on a walk while there was a break in the rain. It had been raining pretty hard that day .Our walk went well but it started raining again. The rest of the day was relaxing. we watched TV, had dinner and snacks, and we stayed awake past midnight. It was a lot of fun to welcome in the new year with my wonderful friend by my side. I was very happy with how I ended 2022 and started 2023!

Sunday – We got off to a great start on Sunday by going to breakfast and then church. After a great church service, we went to Starbucks. Then it was time to make some food deliveries so we could start off the new year with a little extra money. We also went to two parks during the day. I had fun on the playgrounds even though I fell down after jumping off of one of the pieces of play equipment. My friend got that moment on video, and I posted it on my Instagram. ( My username is summerrockstar if you want to see it) We also went to the Dollar Tree. I got a few things at the Dollar Tree, and those things that I got are socks, two surprise packs that have five toys in each pack, and a package of  highlighters. speaking of high lights, we also got sandwiches. Then we had a relaxing night. It was a really great weekend!

Thank you for reading and Happy new year!

Savers, Dollar Tree,my amazing friend and more!

Hello, my bucket list friends! It’s a time for another what I did this weekend blog post. I did a few fun things this weekend that I’m excited to tell you about. So let’s get to it.

Friday –  After work I went to Savers.  I had a coupon that got me 30% off toys and other items. As always I  was excited to see what I could find. The first thing I added to my cart was a My Little Pony Lite Brite  toy. There were a few Barbie dolls available not a lot but more then I have been seeing. I got two of them. In the plush animal area I got a plush horse from Build a Bear Workshop. Some other things I got were American Girl books, TY Beanie Babies collector guides, an earing set and some wooden Christmas shapes that you can paint or color. I was very happy to have the coupon with me since I got a good amount of items.

Saturday- One thing about the weekends that can be difficult is that you have to try and fit a lot of things into a pretty short amount of time. That’s how Saturday was. However, it did end up being a very good day. I went to Starbucks then my mom and I took the neighbor’s dog for a walk in the park. After that we came home and not long after that I left with my dad to go help with making food for homeless people. It goes without saying but I think it needs to be said. It feels good to help others. Since the shelter we were volunteering at was close to where my amazing friend lives. I went to met her when we were done. We met her at one of my favorite places the Dollar Tree. It was so great to see her! It had been a while since we got to hang out.  I had so much fun shopping and talking to her. At the Dollar Tree I found so many amazing things. Including some My Little Pony blind bag bracelets and toys. As well as some other blind bag toys including some that come in little tea cups. Some other items that I got were a bath bomb with a prize inside, candy, play-doh, and a hair bow. After having a wonderful time shopping with my friend, my dad and I went to Taco Bell. I love Taco Bell it is one of the best fast food places for vegetarians. Going there was a great way to wrap up the day.

Sunday – Sunday was a little different because it did something that it does not do a lot where I live especially lately. It rained! It had been a long time since I’d seen a rainy day. We had some errands to run that day and it was good to get out of the house. I’m happy to say that one of thoes errands included going to Starbucks. We also went grocery shopping and to Walgreens. At Walgreens I got a bath bomb and a clay art kit. It was an overall relaxing day.

It’s safe to say that I had a pretty good weekend! Thanks for reading.

A Barbie Easter basket,Dollar Tree, and Savers!

Hello, my bucket list friends! I’m a very happy collector at the moment. In the past few days I’ve managed to add some really great things to my collection. On Thursday I was at the grocery store and I just had to have this Barbie themed Easter basket. I love the puzzle that it comes with. On Friday I  went to the Dollar Tree after work. I got two packages of squishy toys, a container of play-doh that has two colors inside, model magic, canvas and bunny shaped containers. I loved seeing all the Easter items that they had this year. I’m also happy that they are still selling the Jelly Belly sparkling waters. I got one of each flavor. Yesterday, I went to Savers. We went earlier in the day so it was neat and organized. I’m not used to seeing it like that! I was very happy with the items I was able to add to my collection. Some of my favorite finds I got were a Barbie color reveal doll, a Barbie doll book, a TY Beanie Baby bear,two packages of Lisa Frank Easter bubbles, full house books, a Disney mug, and a package of Lisa Frank pencils! I also got this American Girl activity box that comes with lots of cards that have crafts, quizzes and more fun ideas printed on them. I was happy to see that they had more dolls this time. There was not a lot of dolls but there were more then there has been. I hope to find more great items the next time I visit Savers.

A trip to the Dollar Tree and a art project

Hello, my bucket list friends and happy Sunday. Yesterday I did some shopping at the Dollar Tree. I was excited to see what items they had for Christmas. At the location I went to there were still many boxes of Christmas items that they had not opened yet. However there were some items out and ready ready to be bought. I got a snowman ornament, a light up Christmas tree, stickers and a wooden Christmas tree in the Christmas section. Some of the other items I picked up on this trip are play- doh, a squishy toy and a wooden word to paint. Today was the day I decided to paint the wooden Word. Painting is a very relaxing activity and I’m glad I did it today. I used three different colors to paint the word hello. I love Painting dots when I paint so I did that on this piece. I love the way it turned out and I want to paint the back when the paint dries.

Dollar Tree, the mall and new shoes!

Hello,my bucket list friends! Happy Sunday! Another weekend is coming to a close. I thought it would be fun to share my weekend adventures with you so here we go! On Friday I watched the new My Little Pony Movie on Netflix. It was a really good movie and I’m excited to see what adventures will be next for my new favorite ponies. I highly recommend checking out this movie. After work on Friday I went to the Dollar Tree. I got some more acrylic paint and other art supplies. I also got this unicorn play set that I had been wanting I also got some Christmas craft items. I know that they get bought up pretty fast so I decided to get them now. I want to do blogmas again this year and Christmas crafts make for great blogmas posts. Yesterday day I went to the mall. My main goal was to get new shoes because I have a ganglion cyst on my foot and if I wear anything that touches it even soft slippers,it hurts when I walk. I found one pair on shoes in my closet that didn’t touch the cyst. However I got these shoes around 2003 or 2004. They are pink platform slides. They are not the most comfortable on my foot so I needed to get something more comfortable that I could wear until I can get the cyst removed. I started my mall adventure at Target. I didn’t find any shoes there but I did get two Barbie dolls including a new color reveal doll and some foam My Little Pony toys. After Target we went to Famous Footwear and that’s where I found a very comfortable pair of Nike slides. I’m so happy that I now have a pair of shoes that won’t hurt my cyst but are also  comfortable to walk in. While I was at the mall, I went to Claire’s. I always love shopping their sale section. I bought some really cute earrings and a hair bow. My mom and I also got massages. It was a wonderful mall trip. That evening we had game night!I hope all of you are enjoying your weekends!

An update on my succulents and a trip to the Dollar tree.

Hello,my bucket list friends! Before I get into my latest trip to the Dollar Tree I wanted to give you an update on my three succulents. First of all they have names now. I named them Hollywood, Malibu,and Beverly Hills.I decorated their home with some pretty glass rocks that I got at the Dollar Tree. I went to the Dollar Tree on Saturday to get those rocks but of course I found more than that. My favorite finds were a sign that says welcome summer,a button bag craft kit,a coloring book and a pair of socks that are decorated with pictures of ice cream and ice pops. I can’t wait to get more summer stuff the next time I’m at the Dollar Tree.

Target and Dollar Tree adventures

Hello, my bucket list friends! Yesterday, I went shopping at two of my favorite places with one of my favorite people. Whenever I go to Target I have to check out the Dollar section. This time I got two art kits and a pair of socks in the dollar section. I went to the toy section where I got a Barbie color reveal doll and a Barbie accessory package. I’m excited to see what doll I got. I also got a bath bomb and a box of Lara bars. At the Dollar Tree I got some bath bombs,a box of crayons, a My Little pony book, toothpaste, and some other items.

My adventure to the pumpkin patch and other fun places !

Hello, my bucket list friends ! I thought it would be fun to tell you about my latest adventures. Ready ? Set? Let’s go !!!

My adventure to the pumpkin patch and other fun places

On Saturday my mom and I went to a local pumpkin patch. We went to this location last year and I really like it. It’s on the smaller side and that’s one of the things I like about it. Also the crowds are pretty low compared to some of the bigger pumpkin patches I’ve been too. I enjoyed taking pictures in this pumpkin patch . I also found the perfect pumpkins to decorate. After the pumpkin patch we went to the Dollar Tree. I haven’t been to this location in a while but I’m really glad that I went because I finally got the glow in the dark beads I’ve been wanting! After that we went to Michaels to buy supplies to decorate our pumpkins with. While we were in Michaels I spent a good amount of time looking at the Christmas stuff. I know it’s October but I can’t wait for Christmas time to begin. I got blue and green paint for my pumpkins I also got a cute craft kit and a few other fun things . In my next post I’ll talk about decorating my pumpkins! Thanks for reading!

My 30th birthday

Hello, my bucket list friends! On Wednesday I turned 30 and I had a really great day celebrating! I can’t wait to tell you all about it so let’s jump on in !

The first thing I want to say is thank you everyone who wished me a happy birthday! I felt so loved on my birthday. I’m so blessed to have many wonderful people in my life. My plan for my birthday was to go to the Dollar Tree and buy 30 things for my 30th birthday then go to savers to get some books from their very impressive book section. Before going out to dinner that evening. Things at the Dollar Tree started off pretty well but I kept losing count of how many items I had. I ended up with more then 30 items but I had fun and that’s what matters! Then it was time for Savers. The first thing I noticed when I walked into Savers is that the book section had moved. Luckily it was just as big as it used to be. We spent a good amount of time looking through the books and my mom and I found some good books. I got a few other things at savers but mainly books. We made a stop for coffee before heading home. After spending a little time at home it was time to go out to dinner. We met Amy there.  I was so happy to see her!  Also dinner was amazing! I had a really wonderful birthday. I hope the first year of my 30s is wonderful too.
