Mother’s Day – I enjoyed celebrating Mother’s Day this month! It was great to have my whole family together! ( You can read about it HERE )

Some photos and highlights from this week!

It is no secret that I love taking pictures and writing about the fun little things in my everyday life. I thought it would be fun to share some pictures and things that I enjoyed this week. I’m also going to include Friday in this post since I will be including Monday in my next weekend post. Let’s get to it!

Monday – On this day, I worked the opening shift. I got to town early because sometimes it can be hard to get Uber to come to my house quickly. I went to the coffee shop like normal, but I decided that I did not want to wait there until my shift started. Even though I had not planned on it , I went to the thrift store. I was excited when I got to the thrift store, and I saw that there was a buy one get one free on stuffed animals. I got a Build a Bear and a TY Bennie Boo. They were priced at $5 each, so I got them both for only $5. I also got some books and a bag of erasers. After work, I went to Starbucks and went for a walk in the park. That evening, I went on a walk to go see my favorite ponies.

Tuesday – I worked the opening shift this day. Before work I went to the coffee shop and after work I went to the candy store. I was having a craving for chocolate. I got a bunch of chocolate from the bulk bins a, lollypop with a plastic mouth attached, and I also got a soda to do a review of. I have not tried the soda yet, but I plan to soon. I went to the park after work, and I took this really cute selfie on a swing. I ended up making it my profile picture for Facebook and Instagram.

Wednesday – I had this day off. I decided to focus on my writing. I published an article on Vocal Media ( You can read it HERE ). I also published my weekend blog post. ( You can read it HERE ) Other than that, I just stayed home and relaxed except for going on a walk to see my favorite ponies.

Thursday – On this day, I worked the closing shift. It was a normal day with coffee before work. Someone brought donuts to work, and that is all I have to say about Thursday.

Friday – On this day, I worked the opening shift my. My friend took me to work but before that we went to Starbucks. It was great to have coffee with a friend. It is always harder to see friends when everyone’s schedule is different. That was a wonderful way to start my day! My shift went well, and I went to the candy store afterward. I got a ring pop and another lollypop that has plastic lips attached. That evening, I went to Safeway, where I got two juices that have toys as part of the lid, and I also got cupcakes that come with rings. They only had the ones with rings in a large container, so I had some and took the rest to work.

Going on Walks , going to Savers , and getting coffee

Hello, my bucket list, friends! It is time for me to write another blog post about my weekend adventures! This weekend was pretty normal, but I did get to go to Savers. as much as I love going to my local thrift shop. I really love going to Savers because of the large selection they have. That was the main highlight of my weekend, but I did do some other things that I’m also excited to tell you about. Let’s get to it!

Friday – On this day, I worked the morning shift. Before going to work, I went to the nearby candy store to get the same thing that I had gotten the week before. A package that contains both chocolate and toys. It took me a little bit to decide which one I wanted to get since you can see one toy and the other two are concealed in chocolate. I decided to get the one that had a spotted lizard toy visible. I also got some vegan gummy bears while I was at the candy store. I also made my normal stop to the coffee shop before going to work. At work, I took some pictures of the gummy bears with some plants as the background. I really liked how the pictures turned out. After work, I got a smoothie. Later that day, I went on a walk, I loved the selfies that I took during our walk. After walking, I spent some time with my neighbors. It was a pretty great day.

Saturday – This day, I worked the closing shift. In the morning we went on another walk it was a good way to start the day. After our walk, my mom and I went to get coffee before taking my mom’s car to get worked on. We took my mom’s car to the dealership because it needed some maintenance. While the car was being worked on, we took an Uber to Savers. Savers was fairly close to where the car was, so it was a good place to go while we waited for the car to be ready. I was happy to see that the store was pretty well stocked. I got two Barbie dolls, a bag of toys that had some 101 Dalmatians toys and some other toy dogs in it, and a plush dog in the toy section. In the book section, I got some Full House books and some Mary-Kate and Ashley books. I also got a Lisa Frank coloring book. In addition to those items, I got some clothes and a My Little Pony Christmas ornament. After picking up the car, we went to Whole Foods, where I got a sandwich and other items, including my favorite fruit snacks that come with trading cards. After that I went to work and after work we went to a park to go on another walk. It was a good way to end a busy day out.

Sunday – On this day, I worked the morning shift, so I was not able to go to church. However, I did start my day with coffee and another walk. Then I went to work and after that we went on some errands. At Walgreens, I got two chocolate eggs that came with Hot Wheels cars, and at Safeway, I got another piece of chocolate that came with a toy. It was the same brand that I got on Friday. After our errands, we went on another walk, but we got to see my favorite ponies. It was a great way to end the weekend.

Being social and shopping my week in review

Hello, my bucket list, friends! Last week had some really great moments. I decided to make a blog post highlighting those moments. Without any more introduction, let’s get to it!

Monday – This day was a really amazing one. My friend and I both were off on this day, and this is a rare occurrence. I was very excited for us to spend they day together. We did some of our favorite things. We went to Starbucks and went on a walk. went shopping at Five Below, and we ended the day by going to Yogurtland. My friend had never been to Five Below before, and I was excited to show it to her. I got many fun items, including Barbie sunglasses, a Barbie puzzle, a My Little Pony toy, a Barbie tea set, a painting art kit, and new earbuds, I also got a Squishmallow. I’m not going to start collecting them because I collect so many things already, but I was excited about the price, plus they are very cute. It was also a lot of fun going to Yogurtland. I love being creative and making my own frozen yogurt creation. However, the best thing about the day was getting to spend time with my friend.

Tuesday – On this day, I worked the morning shift. Before work, I got coffee at the place I normally do. Work went well, and after work, I got some Kinder Joy eggs at Safeway. It was a simple but good day.

Wednesday – On this day, I also worked the morning shift. I started the day with coffee just like the day before. I also had a good day at work just like I had the day before. However, this day was different because I went to my favorite local thrift store after work. It had not been long since I was there last so there were not a lot of new items but I did get some good items. including an American Girl book and a sheet of Easter stickers. I enjoyed going thrift shopping, of course, but my favorite part of the day was going out to eat with family members that I had not seen in a while. I got to eat pizza and have good conversations. it was a really great day.

Thursday – I was off on this day, and I got to see my friend again. It was a last-minute thing, but I was so excited to see her again. We went to Walgreens and Starbucks. At Walgreens, I got a new Pez dispenser. We only hung out for a little while because I wanted to get back home, but it was truly amazing to see my friend twice in one week.

Thanks for reading about my week! I hope you are all enjoying the month of April!

Pez dispensers and Kinder eggs

Hello, my bucket list, friends! The two items in the title above are two items that I have been buying a lot lately.  I love the toys that come with the Easter Kinder joy eggs. I also love how cute Pez dispensers are. On Wednesday, I got two new Pez dispensers. I got a cupcake and a pizza Pez dispenser. I love them both, but the cupcake is my favorite. Thursday, I bought three Kinder Joy eggs at Safeway because they are 3 for 5.00. I opened up one of the eggs yesterday, and it had a cute blue and white bunny inside. I wish the Easter themed Kinder eggs we available year round.  Oh, also, at Safeway on Thursday, I got a beautiful cupcake that had a plastic ring shaped like a crown on top. I hope you all have a great weekend. Thanks for reading!

Celebrating this week’s little moments

Hello, my bucket list, friends! I have been told that some people appreciate the way I highlight the little everyday moments in life. I often highlight little moments in my weekend blog posts. However, I have had some fun moments this week that I want to highlight. Without any more introduction, let’s get to it!

Monday- I worked the closing shift on this day. I got coffee before work at a local coffee shop that is close to my work. I enjoyed my coffee, and work went well. After work, I went to Whole Foods. I got some soup because it has definitely been soup weather lately. I also got some boxes of Annie’s macaroni and cheese. I like how the boxes have projects on the back of the box that you can make. Another thing I was excited about getting was the fruit snacks that have trading cards in them. I love how the current series of cards has animals on them. Oh, and I got cinnamon mints, too! It was a good way to start the weekdays.

Tuesday – I had the day off. I stayed home most of the day, but I did go out in the evening. I went to Walgreens, and I got two fun items. One is a bunny shaped pop toy that came with gumballs. The other is a doughnut Pez dispenser. I just love how cute this Pez dispenser is! I wonder what Pez dispenser I will get next.

Wednesday – I was scheduled to work the morning shift this day. However, after I had coffee at the same coffee shop I went to on Monday, I discovered that the power was out at work. Unfortunately, it would not be coming back on soon, and I didn’t want to pay to take another Uber. I decided to stay in town until my mom could pick me up. Frist, I walked to my favorite local thrift shop, but their power was also out. Since I had a lot of time, I walked to the other thrift shop in town. This shop often does not have items that I’m interested in, so I didn’t expect to find anything. However, I’m happy to say that I found a Mickey Mouse hat from Disneyland! Due to the logo on the inside of the hat, I believe that it is from the 2000s. After buying the hat, I walked to the candy store. I ened buying a lollipop that is attached to a plastic bunny mouth, so when you eat the lollipop, it makes you look like a bunny! After that, I just stayed in a park and entertained myself with my phone while I waited for my mom to pick me up. It did start raining at one point, but it was easy to find a place that was covered.

Thanks for reading! I hope you have a lot of great moments this week!
