Starbucks and thrift shopping- I put these two things together because I usually do them every month but both of these things put a smile on my face so I always consider them to be monthly highlights.

Weighted blanket- I got a weighted blanket this month and I love it! It’s a great self care item!

Random thoughts from a type 4

Hello, my bucket list friends! There are times when I have a lot of things on my mind that I want to dump into one big blog post. This is one of those times. Before I go any further let me address the title of this post. There is a personality test called the enneagram. After seeing people post about it. I took it myself and it turns out that I’m pretty much the definition of a type 4. I’ve always felt like an outcast. I’d never realized that was a part of my personally type. However I have referred to myself as a professional day dreamer so that part didn’t surprise me. If you get the chance I recommend checking out the enneagram test. without any more delay here are my random thoughts.

I really want this cold to go away! – I have had this cold for about a week now and it’s been bringing me down in a big way. It has not only caused me to miss work but to also miss out on spending time with my family and friends. I still have it and it doesn’t seem to want to leave. I hope it goes away soon because I don’t have time for it plus it’s making me very frustrated. However I do feel like it is slowly getting better. I hope by next week I will be 100% better.

My solo Thanksgiving- Due to the cold I mentioned above, I stayed home on Thanksgiving. I made the most of it by eating some very yummy food that I got from the hot bar at Whole Foods. I also did arts and crafts. My favorite craft kit that I did was a wooden Christmas Tree ornament kit that I got at Whole Foods. I also did a TY Beanie Boos puzzle. I enjoyed watching the parade on TV. It was not the prefect Thanksgiving day but I made the most out of it.

Fun CVS finds – Yesterday I went to CVS to get some things to help me fight this cold but of course I bought some fun things while I was there. I got a Disney 2021 ornament and some hair scrunchies. The scrunchies I got are Claire’s brand. I love that CVS has Claire’s items.

I want to cross more items off my bucket list – It has been a while since I crossed anything off my list I think the last items I crossed off were when I was in LA. I hope to cross off a few more items before the year ends.

Outside Christmas decorations – We are almost done putting up our outside Christmas decorations! We got some new outdoor decorations this year and I’m really happy with the way everything is looking. I’m also looking forward to getting our Christmas tree put up soon.

There you have it my random thoughts for the day. Thanks for reading!

Veterans day parade and a trip to Savers

Hello, my bucket list friends! Yesterday was veterans day. My mom and I both had the day off work. We decided to go to a veterans day parade. We bought flags and had a fun time waving them at the parade! There was music, dogs, and a lot of cool cars to name a few things. The parade was a lot longer then I thought it would be. The fun just kept on coming! I really loved the marching bands. After the parade we went to Savers. I had a coupon for 30% off certain items. We spent a good amount of time in Savers the more time we spent there the more items I found. Some of my favorite items I got yesterday are a plush unicorn backpack, a Ken doll, Disney Christmas items, two Barbie dolls and a Christmas necklace. It was a great to have a day off but it was weird to have a Thursday off then have to come back to work today. At least today is Friday and I have two days off to look forward to.

Savers in the morning and more adventures

Hello,my bucket list friends! Yesterday was a pretty busy day but it was mostly the fun kind of busy. We ending up leaving the house earlier then we normally would. After we went to Starbucks we got to Savers a little bit before it opened. There were are few people waiting outside already so I decided to join the line. By the time the store opened,there was a pretty long line of people behind us. As soon as we got in the store there were carts waiting for us. I grabbed one and headed to the back of the store where the toys are. I was excited to see that there was so many beanie babies! I ended up getting four bags that had two beanies each. Also on the same wall there was a bag with two Lion King plush toys in it! I love finding 90s Lion King items. I also got the Lion King sound track. One of my other favorite finds from this trip is an American Girl art studio kit. I also got two pairs of jeans and some Disney key chains. It was a successful thrift trip! After that we had some errands to run including Whole Foods and mailing an item that I sold on Poshmark. We went back to the house to get my neighbor’s dog. We had plans to go to a pumpkin patch with Amy but due to traffic that didn’t end up happening. We ended up going to dog park and taking a walk around the park where the dog park is. Last night I listed some more items on Poshmark. I’m getting more into this reselling thing. Thanking for reading!

My life in the middle of the week

Hello,my bucket list friends! Well it’s Wednesday. I thought I would do a little mid week check in. Let’s start with Monday’s highlights. Monday started off with my usual morning trip to Starbucks. After work I went to Starbucks again before heading to the dog park. We are watching the neighbor’s dog this week and because it gets dark early now evening walks are harder to do. The dog park has been our go to lately. I love being at the dog park even if I’m tired. All those happy dogs put me in a better mood. Yesterday I got a package with the Lisa Frank plush that I ordered. I also got a copy of my work photos yesterday. I’m happy with the way they turned out. Last night I decided to list some of my collection on Poshmark. It was a hard choice to make but I need money for some adventures that I have planned. I already sold one item. Don’t worry I’m still collecting! Reselling might be a good way for me to make money on the side. I guess that brings us up to today. Right now I’m on my lunch listening to an audio book and writing this blog post. I guess it’s time to wrap up this post. Thanks for reading

In love with my Tie-dye sweatshirt

Hello, my bucket list friends! Right now I’m wearing this Tie-dye sweatshirt that I got at a Goodwill in Utah back in June. Ever since I got it, it has become one of my favorite clothing items I own. I love it for a few reasons. Number one it is super colorful and happy looking. I love how bold and bright it is. The second thing about it that I love is that is so comfortable it’s like I’m wearing a cozy blanket. I looked through my photos to find pictures myself in this sweatshirt. I just have to say I love the way it looks in photos! I should keep an eye out for more Tie-dye items when I’m thrift shopping!

Another Goodwill adventure

Hello,my bucket list friends! Yesterday I visited one of my favorite places,the Goodwill! Every other Thursday I go with my dad to drop off food at our church. The food is used to help feed the homeless. While my dad gets the food at the store I like to go to the Goodwill nextdoor and see what I can find. On this shopping trip the first thing I found was a bag of horse toys .They were so cute, I just had to take them home. My other finds were a Disney purse, a Build a Bear cat, a Barbie doll still in the box and a snow globe. I’m happy with my finds. What have you found at thrift stores lately?
