Idaho adventure December 2021!

Hello, my bucket list friends! I’ve been meaning to write this post for a while now and it looks like I finally have the to time and energy to do it! It can be hard when you have a lot to write about but not a lot of energy to write it! Anyways last month I went to Idaho to visit family. I try to make more then one trip to Idaho every year if I can. In 2021 I went 3 times! I’m pretty happy with that. On this trip to Idaho there was a lot of snow and because of that I didn’t get to do an activity like going to the zoo or a museum. However,I did get to see family, go the movies, and go thrift shopping. It had been a while since I had gone to the movies it was definitely good to go again. We saw American Underdog. It was a pretty good movie. For thrift shopping we went to the Idaho youth ranch. I got some pretty cool things there including an American Girl Games and Giggles book,some 101 Dalmatians toys and a Disney snow globe. I also got to use a 3-D printer for the first time! I love the turtle that I got to color with paint pens. I also enjoyed taking pictures in the snow! I love the way snow looks in photos! I also got to see some very cute animals. A fun trip to vist family was a good way to end the year.

Florida vacation 2021 part six

Hello,my bucket list friends! Here we are at the the six and final part of my Florida vacation posts! This part is going to be a little different from the others because we didn’t go to the Disney Parks or Disney springs on this day of our trip. We decided to explore Florida outside of Disney world. We signed up for a tour that lasted most of the day. After we got picked up by the tour company,we headed to our first adventure of the day. We got to go swimming with sea cows! Since the weather was warm the day ,there were not many of them around. However we got to see one very cute sea cow! She was happily eating. It was a cool experience. I enjoyed the boat ride a getting to  swim. Our next tour stop was my favorite Homosassa Springs wildlife state park. I loved looking at the animals here. There were so many beautiful birds.there was also a hippo and a Bear. We didn’t have whole lot of time here but I really enjoyed the time we had. There was also a gift shop here. I’m gald we had a little bit of extra time to fo shopping before getting back in the tour van. I Really want to go back here someday. Our last tour stop was to go on an air boat ride. Air boats are very fun to ride in. It kind of felt like a roller coaster at some points. I would like do this again as well. That evening my mom and I went shopping at the Disney character where house. This store sells discounted items from the Disney parks. When I saw that we were close to one. I  really wanted to go. I got some fun items here including a 2021 pin. The next day we went back home. We missed our first flight because of a very long line. However we made it home safe the day we had planned on. Thank you so much for reading my Florida adventure!

Florida vacation 2021 part one

Hello,my bucket list friends! I’m super excited to tell you all about the very fun vacation I went on recently. My vacation started when my parents and I arrived in Orlando on December 4th. We checked into Disney’s all star music resort. I love the way this resort is decorated. It’s a true work of art. On the evening we arrived I got a refillable mug at the cafeteria and some awesome items at the souvenir shop. The next morning we went to Disney’s Animal Kingdom. My favorite attraction at Animal Kingdom is Kilimanjaro Safaris. This ride feels like a real safari because there are real animals. I loved seeing the giraffes,elephants and lions. My favorite show at Animal Kingdom is festival of the Lion King. The Lion King is my favorite movie. I loved seeing some of the characters from the movie as well as hearing songs from the movie. I also really enjoyed the new show called kite tails. It was Lion King themed as well. It was a very unique show and I hope Disney does more kite shows in the future. As always I did some shopping two of my favorite things that I got that day were a hat and a popcorn bucket. Popcorn buckets are a good thing to get in Disney world because they have low cost refills during the length of your trip. Another exciting thing we did that day was eat at the rainforest Cafe. I love the rainforest Cafe but there is not any locations close to me. It’s always a fun place to eat and the pasta I had there was really good. After having a fun day In Animal Kingdom, I went swimming at the piano pool at our hotel. I loved that there was a little mermaid statue next to the pool. Thank you for reading this part of my Florida vacation.

Idaho October 2021 part 1

Hello,my bucket list friends! As some of you know I have faimly in Idaho. I try to go visit them a few times a year. This was my second trip this year. I started this trip on Thursday night. Our flight landed pretty late so we didn’t do much that night. On Friday we went to breakfast with my grandparents, then we went thrift shopping. We went to a thrift store chain that we don’t have where I live. At this store some of my favorite things I got were two were Barbie dolls, a Lion King plate, a carousel mug, and a my little pony plush toy. Later that day my mom and I went to the Goodwill. As I was walked back to the toy section something caught my eye. It was a 1995 Barbie comforter! I knew that it would not be easy to get it back home since my suit case is not very big. However that didn’t really matter to me because I was going to get it even if I had to mail to back to myself. Some other items I got there were Barbie books,a Barbie DVD and a Build a Bear plush. After our second thrift store of the day we went to Panera Bread. I love their soup so much! Some other family members came over that night and it was great to see them.The next day we went to Boise to go to the Basque museum. My mom had been here before but it was my first time visiting this museum. It was very interesting I enjoyed looking at pictures from the past. Next to the museum there is an old boarding house you can tour. It is very interesting as well. When you walk through the boarding house it almost feels like you have gone back in time. If you get the chance I recommend checking out the museum and the boarding house. After that we walked around a bit,went to a gift shop and checked out these really cool swings. The swings were a part of a tree sculpture. I love swings and I want to visit this work of art again. After our adventures we met my grandparents for a wonderful lunch. It had been an exciting day but we were not done yet. We went to my aunt and uncle’s house. They have a lot of wonderful animals. I finally got to meet their pigs! I had a great time saying hi to their animals. Before going back to my grandparents house we went to Walmart. They had a great selection of Christmas items! I had a fun time looking at the Christmas decorations! It was a busy but wonderful two days.

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!

Visit the Getty Center 277 – I would love to visit this beautiful place again. It is filled with so much amazing art.

Visit the Griffith observatory 276 – Amazing views and interesting exhibits this a place to add to your list if you are in Los Angeles

Go to the Grove in Los Angeles 238 – The American Girl store here was so much fun to explore! I wish I lived closer to this location. I would visit as much as I could.

My wonderful birthday weekend :)

Hello,my bucket list friends! My birthday was on Thursday August 26th. However, I kept the celebration going into the weekend. I spent the weekend in the Monterey area with my family. My mom and I drove there on Friday evening and stayed in a hotel. The next morning we were ready for adventure! We started off our day of adventure with the seventeen mile drive. I have done this drive before but I enjoyed it a lot and wanted to do it again. It does cost to go on the drive but to me it is worth it. There are a lot of wonderful views and plenty of photo opportunities along the way. The lone cypress and the house know as the gingerbread house are two of my favorite things to see along seventeen mile drive. After a truly beautiful drive ,we went to the Cannery Row antique mall. This antique mall is two stories and it is packed full of things to see. I bought some great items here including a 1980s button from Disney World . Other items I got were McDonald’s Barbie toys, Disney World magnets, a Disneyland pen and a McDonald’s beanie baby toy. After antique shopping we went souvenir shopping. My favorite souvenires I got are a plush otter with a Monterey sweatshirt on and a visor that says Monterey on it. There is a free trolley that you can take around Monterey I had fun riding it. It’s cute on the inside and out. It almost feels like the vehicles that they have at Disneyland. My mom and I went through the Monterey mirror maze on Cannery Row. We did a similar maze in mall of America. These mazes are fun to take pictures in. They are challenging without being impossible. I hope to do more mazes like this. We also spent some time at the beach.I took a good picture of a sea lion. After the beach, I got to visit a place in Monterey that I have always wanted to visit. Dennis the menace park. This is one of the cutest playgrounds I have ever seen. Some of the things this playground had to offer were a roller slide, a sun shaped bridge and a rock climbing wall. I really want to go back to this playground and spend more time there. After all that adventure we met my dad for dinner. He was diving at the beach that day. After eating a yummy dinner,my mom and I went to old fishermen’s wharf. I went to a candy store there and I got a lot of taffy! Later that night my sister came to the hotel and brought me the best birthday cake ever. I chose this ice cream melting cake from my Pintrest profile and it tasted as amazing as it looked. The next day my mom,sister and I drove to the big Sur area. We had lunch then we explored Phifer Beach. The beach was really amazing. It had some truly beautiful caves and it also had some purple sand! It was one of the best birthday celebrations I’ve ever had!

Utah adventure part four and wrap up!

Hello,my bucket list friends! Welcome to the fourth and final part of my Utah adventure! On the last day of our vacation we went to explore a church called the Cathedral of the Madeleine. It was so beautiful. I took so many pictures. It was simply beautiful inside and outside of the church. After exploring the church we went to an antique mall it was my first time going to one because I always thought that they were to expensive. Turns out I was wrong. They had some great items at great prices. There we also expensive items as well but the were plenty of great things in my price range that I was excited to add to my collection. I need to explore more antique malls. After all that exploring it was time for some lunch. We went to this restaurant called Red iguana. It was highly recommended. I’m glad we went there. The food was amazing. Plus they had a giant iguana statue out in front of the restaurant that was really cool to see. And that pretty much sums up our last day in Utah. This vacation was absolutely amazing! My favorite things were probably the zoo, the aviary, and the Park City museum. I’m glad we went to Salt Lake City. It was a lot of fun to explore.
