My new Build a Bear friend

Hello, my bucket list friends! Yesterday, I went to Build a Bear Workshop after work. It had been a while since I had made a new friend at Build a Bear. I really wanted want to welcome a new bear into my collection. I had looked on Build a Bear’s website before I walked into the store. I had a few ideas for what plush I wanted to choose but I had not decided for sure. There were a lot of great plush animals to choose from. At first I wanted to get the Crayola Bear, but I ended up choosing the rainbow sparkle bear that has cute sparkly paws. After stuffing my new bear I went to look for the perfect outfit for her. After looking around for a little while I chose a two piece outfit that had a daisy on the shirt. When it came time to name my new friend, I hadn’t chosen a name already but I found the perfect one for her. I named my new friend Daisy Rainbow. I love how bright and colorful she is and her outfit is super cute! Going to Build a Bear Workshop was the perfect way to start my weekend. I don’t think it matters how old I get, I will still love going to Build a Bear Workshop. Thanks for reading!

And another weekend gone …..

Hello,my bucket list friends! It’s time to morn the loss of yet another weekend. There are some who say that we should focus of the happy memories and not the loss. For this post I think that’s a great idea! Let’s start by talking about Friday. On Friday we got surprised with some really awesome cookies at my work! I got a confetti cookie it was so happy looking and it was also really yummy! After work I went to the Dollar Tree. I was excited to see that they already had some of their summer items out. My favorite item that I got that day was a pack of summer themed trivia cards. Some of the questions are really easy but some are really interesting. Some other things I got at the Dollar Tree included some squishy toys, a My Little Pony sticker set, and some paint! It was a good way to start the weekend. On Saturday I had my first marketing class through my voice acting school. It was really interesting and I look forward to the other sessions. I also got to go to a store that I love and that store is Michaels. I’m very creative person so I love stores that are filled with art supplies. I got some really fun things at Michaels including two packages of wooden animal shaped ornaments, a wooden pineapple, paint sticks, stickers, and beads shaped like sea animals. However my favorite thing that I bought at Michaels was a TY squishy beanie leppard toy! It is so soft and squishy I love it so much! After shopping we went to Starbucks! I got an iced coffee and a cake pop! Later that day I went back into town and walked on one of my favorite trails. After that I went to 7-Eleven and got a slurpee. That night I a took a bath with bath bombs! On Sunday I went to Starbucks again but the big highlight of the day was going to a restaurant to celebrate my cousin’s birthday! It was a pretty great weekend!

More Barbie color reveal and more instacart

Hello, my bucket list friends! I ordered a good amount of Barbie color reveal dolls on Poshmark. I got two more of them on Thursday. One was from the beach series the other was from the older mermaid series. The first doll I opened was from the beach series. I already had two dolls in this series but I’m happy to say that I didn’t get a double.  The doll I got had a similar hair style to mine and she’s over all just a really cool doll. The 2nd doll was from the older mermaid color reveal series. I had two  dolls from this series already and I’m happy to say that I did not get a double. This doll had a rainbow theme I love her hair and her necklace. I also did another instacart order that evening. I ordered from Walmart again. I got food and other things I needed but I also got two more Barbie dolls. One of the dolls is a pasta chef. I think that is the only kind of chef that I could possibly be lol! I really like using instacart I’ve only used it a few times but I think I’ll be using it again for sure.

A post about my weekend and a thank you to instacart

Hello, my bucket list friends! Well another weekend has left us. This weekend was not very exciting but I thought I’d share it with you anyways so here we go! Friday was my last day of work at the child care center that I have been working at for a year. I got hired at a preschool closer to my house. It was hard to say goodbye to the kids and my coworkers. However,I know working closer to home will make things easier. After my last day of work, I walked to CVS and I got some cool things. Like a Barbie activity book ,a pink flamingo pen, and a bath bomb. I also went to the Safeway next to the CVS where I got a few things but my favorite was a peeps bubble wand! On Saturday I used that used bubble wand outside in the sunshine. It made really good bubbles I was really happy with how well it worked. Also on Saturday I got an instacart delivery from walmart. I love instacart. That delivery included two Barbie dolls, a package of bath bombs, two boxes of crayons,stickers,and two craft kits. I completed one of the craft kits a wooden cactus that you color on the day that it was delivered. I also used some of my new crayons in the Barbie activity book that I got on Friday. On Sunday I did something that I have been putting off for a long time…. my taxes! I’m so happy to be done with them at least for this year! I also spent more time outside enjoying the sunshine and I spent more time coloring in my Barbie activity book. I also used the final bath bomb that I ordered from Etsy. It was shaped like an ice cream cone and it also had sprinkles on it! It had a prize inside as well. It was a pretty relaxing weekend. Thanks for reading!

Thrift shopping, a book sale and a claw machine.

Hello, my bucket list friends! It’s time for a another post about another weekend! I wish we had more then two days off work. I wish three was normal. I feel like we could do a lot more in three days then we can in two. Plus it would make the work week more even with the weekend. Anyways,let me get my mind back on track…. OK and I’m back! My weekend started when I got off of work on Friday. I went to Walgreens to get shampoo but of course I had to look at the Easter items that they had available. I got a yellow bunny shaped light. It’s super cute! I also got this Barbie art kit that was on sale! Oh and I got candy. After I got home we went to the neighbor’s house for a dog birthday party! There were so many dogs there it was awesome. On Saturday, I started my day off by going to a local thrift store. I got there right when they opened but there were already people there. Since this store is ran my volunteers it’s hours are limited so it’s popular on Saturday. I got some great Ty Beanie Babies to add to my collection. The penguin is just so cute! I also got two Barbie dolls, and two books. One is a Barbie book the other one is a American Girl craft book. After the thrift store, I took an Uber to a book sale at a library. I had never been to this library before but I heard on the radio that they were going to be having a book sale on Saturday. I decided to check it out. I got some books that look really interesting I started reading on of them. This library also had a really cool art piece outside that I took pictures with. After that I took another Uber home. That night I went to dinner with my parents at on of my favorite local restaurants. I love that this restaurant has an arcade in it. I’m happy to say that I won three large squishy toys from the claw machine. Those machines can be had to win sometimes. On Sunday it was a beautiful day. I went for a walk and I got a frappuccino at Starbucks. I also got Kinder Joy eggs at the store on Sunday. Before the weekend was over I had time to take a nice relaxing bath. It was a pretty awesome weekend!!

Kinder Joy eggs Barbie edition

Hello, my bucket list friends! Welcome to a fun light hearted blog post! I believe that I will forever be young at heart! With that being said two of my favorite things are candy and toys and Kinder Joy eggs have both! A while ago I was so happy to see that Kinder had done a collaboration with Barbie. I got two eggs when I first saw them and recently I got three more of them while I was at Safeway. The prizes in the eggs have been awesome! I love the figures and other prizes. I took pictures of four of my prizes below! I highly recommend trying this candy if you never have!
