pottery and popcorn

Hello, my bucket list friends ! Summer has been both busy and fun this year and there is so much more to come! Before I get too far behind on my blog posts I wanted to tell you about what I did on Thursday.  I went out to run some errands with my dad and while we were in the car I got a phone call I had been waiting for. Back in March my mom and I went to my favorite paint your own pottery place. ( You can read about it HERE ) The day we went was also the day they closed but they let us stay to finish painting. Recently they reopened and Thursday was the day that our art was ready to pick up! I was so excited to finally bring my art pieces home! After I picked up our art my dad and I went to Trader Joe’s where I got one of my favorite snacks pickle flavored popcorn! I only see it at Trader Joe’s during the summer. If you like pickles I highly recommend it! I’m just gonna end this post by saying yay for art and popcorn !

Mystery spot and the boardwalk

Hello,my bucket list friends! Summer is the perfect time of year for local adventures especially if you live in California. Yesterday I went on two local adventures including one place that I’ve never been before. It was a fun day and I can’t wait to tell you more so let’s get to it !

 

 

Mystery spot and the boardwalk

The first fun place I went to yesterday was the mystery spot in Santa Cruz. I have wanted to go there for a while. I would always see cars with Mystery spot bumper stickers and I was curious to see what what it was all about. Well it turns out that the Mystery Spot is famous for being a gravitational anomaly . The Mystery spot opened in 1940 and from what I can tell it is still going strong. The was one part of the tour that made me dizzy but I got some great pictures so it was worth it to me. At the end of the tour we all got the famous Mystery Spot bumper stickers! After that adventure my mom and I headed to a place that we had been to before the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. There wasn’t much open at the boardwalk yet but we were able to get ice cream and take a little walk on the beach. It was a fun little day trip and I hope the boardwalk opens it’s rides soon!

Books and mini golf

Hello, my bucket list friends ! I hope you are all enjoying the summertime. On Saturday I got to do two fun activities and I can’t wait to tell you more about it so here we go!

 

Books and mini golf

Saturday’s first fun activity was going shopping at my favorite used book store. I got two American girl books to add to my collection. After the book store I went to Starbucks. I had a good time at the book store and going to get coffee and that evening  I had scheduled a fun family activity. I had reserved a time slot for my parents and I at a mini golf course. I had been to this mini golf course before and I knew it was a lot of fun. I was happy that we played on my favorite side of the course. Now, I’m not very good at golf but I have a fun time playing it. We started out keeping score but after a bit we stopped keeping score and just played for fun. We all had a really good time and I hope we can go play the other side of the course soon.

Summer shopping fun !

Hello, my bucket list friends ! Yesterday my friend Amy and I went shopping at the Dollar Tree and Target. As usual I found some fun stuff so let’s dive in so can I tell you more about it!

 

Summer shopping fun !

To start our day we went to Target I was in much need of bug spray and sunscreen but of course I stopped at the dollar section first. There were new items it the dollar section since I had last been there. I was excited to see these big squishy toys for three dollars each. I chose the big squishy sun.  I also got a pair of socks and a bird shaped toy that shoots a ball from it’s nose. After Target we went to the Dollar Tree . My friend had been looking at some office supplies at Target. She decided to wait and see if she could get what she needed at the Dollar Tree and guess what ? She found what she needed there and saved money ! I found some goodies as well . I got a glittery sign that says ” Hello summer ” two craft kits and more. It was a great day and I can’t wait to have more like it!

Unicorn sparkling water!

Hello, my bucket list friends! Once again I saw something at CVS that I just had to try ! This time it was unicorn sparkling water. I drink sparkling water all the time and I love unicorns so this looked like the perfect product for me. The box and the cans are both decorated with unicorns. The cans are smaller then normal but that did matter to me it just made the box easier to carry! The water had an amazing flavor! It tasted like candy and that’s pretty impressive because there is no sugar in it. I enjoyed everything about this sparkling water. I’m going to have to get more soon because I have already almost finished the box!

Hello Summer 2020

Hello my bucket list friends ! When you’re in school they tell you when your summer starts and ends. Since I’m not in school I decided my summer would be from the first day of June to the last day of August. I celebrated the start of summer yesterday by going to CVS and getting this fun set of Mickey Mouse plastic straws that I had been wanting. Then later in the day I got a Slurpee. I used one of my new straws in the Slurpee! It was a perfect way to start the summer! I hope you all have great summers !

A walk on the beach

Hello,my bucket list friends ! I live pretty close to the beach but I don’t go a lot anymore but this week I got to go. I went on a beach walk with my mom and my friend. It felt good to be back at the beach it had been a long time since I had last gone. I felt so free as I ran in the water.  The water was actually surprisingly warm it’s usually very cold. I enjoyed seeing the sand castles that had been built. Also the beach we were at is a dog friendly beach. I loved seeing all the dogs running around and having a good time. Just like that dogs I saw, I had a really great time at the beach ! I hope to go over there more this summer !

Waterloo Summer berry flavor review

Hello, my bucket list friends ! I love drinking sparkling water and Waterloo is one of my favorite brands. when I was in Whole Foods I saw that they had a new Summer Berry flavor and I just had to try it! So without further delay let’s get into the review!

 

Waterloo Summer berry flavor review

I have to start out by saying that I love the name of this flavor. Summer is my favorite time of year and I love food and drinks that are fruit flavored. When I first took a sip of this drink it reminded me off a vitamin C powder that I have tasted before. I wasn’t a huge fan of the new flavor at first to be honest with you but it grew on me after a while. The Cherry and strawberry Waterloos are still my favorites but I would still recommend giving this flavor a try it may just become your favorite flavor.

Grow animals !

Hello,my bucket list friends ! Recently In another post ( you can read it HERE) I mentioned that I got a sloth grow toy at Target well I also got a dinosaur grow toy at CVS. I can’t wait to tell you more about both of the grow toys so here we go !

 

Grow animals !

Let’s start with the dinosaur. This grow toy came in a plastic egg filled with slime. I took the dinosaur out of the egg and put it in a cup water. This grow animal was very simple and worked like other grow animals I have seen. In just a day or so my little dinosaur had grown many times it’s size! It was fun to see how big the dinosaur got. Now, on to the sloth. The sloth was different from the dinosaur because you couldn’t even see the sloth at first it was hiding in a tree stump.You put the tree stump in the water so the sloth would grow out of it. On the box it said that it would take the sloth a few days to come out. I left the sloth in there for probably over a week maybe even longer before I broke the stump open and got the pretty big sloth out. I could see the stump breaking more and more as time went on. I thought it’s head was gonna pop up like the picture on the box showed but it was the back of it’s head that popped up instead. When I took The sloth out of the tree stump I was so happy to see how cute it was!   Overall I liked both of these grow toys and I would like to try other grow toys sometime.
