Savers,Target and Mother’s day!

Hello,my bucket list friends! It’s time for another weekend in review post. This weekend  started by me doing one of my favorite things. when I got off of work on Friday ,My mom and I went thrift shopping at Savers. I got some awesome things for my collection including three Barbie dolls and a lot of Barbie movies. ( You can read more about it HERE) after thrift shopping I went to Safeway. I got a big cupcake that had pretty pink frosting on it. It was a good way to start the weekend. On Saturday I made another work of art with my paint sticks . ( You can read about it HERE ) we went out to dinner with family on Saturday but first we made a stop at Starbucks. After that we went to Target. At Target I got my first Barbie Extra doll! I love her hair so much! Her outfit is also amazing! I also got some bath bombs that have prizes inside. Other items I got include light up bathtub toys and kinetic sand. It was a fun trip to Target and an overall good day. Sunday was mother’s day! We started off the day by going to church and ended the day by going to a fancy dinner. In between church and dinner I went to Starbucks ,went on a walk and took a bath with two very cute bath bombs. Dinner was amazing the picture I took of my dinner turned out amazing. It looked like a picture from a magazine.

Thanks for reading about my weekend!

An interesting soda flavor and some beautiful cakes!

Hello, my bucket list friends! In my last post I talked about how I was a happy collector. Well there is another part of me that is happy at the moment and that is my sweet tooth! On Saturday I got some dragon fruit flavored soda. I was not sure how it would taste but it actually ended up tasting pretty good! It’s also a beautiful color. The one I had was Fanta brand but there may be other brands out there. I would definitely buy this soda again. Also I’m known to buy slices of cake and cupcakes when I go to the grocery store. Lately I’ve been impressed with the way they have been decorated. So many beautiful colors! Plus this one cupcake I got had plastic balloons on top! It was so cute and happy looking. I wonder what kind of soda of cake I’ll try next!

Is this how celebrities eat ?

Hello, my bucket list friends! I’ve been meaning to write this post all week. On Sunday I had the best dinner of my life! My family and I went to this restaurant called Grand View. As the name suggests the views are something to write home about! Everything about this restaurant is beautiful. Now, the food somehow managed to be just as good as the veiws. After going over our choices,we decided to do the tasting menu. At first I didn’t think I’d be able to do it because I’m a vegetarian. However the amazing staff members told me that it would be no problem to do the tasting menu for a vegetarian. I was excited to see what food I would get to try. Each course that they brought was a wonderful surprise. This was the fanciest food that I have ever had. It was so amazing! The tasting menu allowed me to try things that I normally wouldn’t order like beats. I felt like an A- list celebrity that night. I couldn’t help but think that this is what celebrities must eat like!

kit kat mocha +chocolate review

Hello, my bucket list friends! When I was in Walgreens the other day ,I saw an interesting candy bar and knew I just had to try it. It was a mocha flavored Kit Kat bar. I like Kit Kat bars and I love coffee so I was very interested to see how this candy bar would taste. I’ll get right to the point I loved this candy bar. The mocha taste was simply amazing. I felt like I was enjoying a fancy and expensive candy bar. If you love coffee I highly recommend trying this candy if you get the chance.

Peppermint popcorn?!?!!?

Hello, my bucket list friends! Yesterday I went to Whole Foods on my lunch break and I saw something I just had to try, white chocolate peppermint popcorn! This fun flavor is made by Skinny Pop. I Love peppermint. I also love trying new peppermint flavored snacks. So without any more delay let’s dive on in!

When I first opened the bag ,the popcorn looked normal but upon closer inspection. I did notice little red spots on the popcorn. As for the taste I’m just gonna say it ,I love this popcorn! It has a perfect salty sweet taste. It has the right amount of peppermint without being overpowering. As you can probably guess I do recommend trying this snack.

Apple Pie Kit Kat review

Hello, my bucket list friends ! It’s time for another fun food review! Let’s dive on in!

While I was in Walgreens I saw Apple pie flavored Kit Kats up by the register and I knew I just had to try it! I love trying fun candy flavors and this one looked like it would be fun to review. I love the design and colors on the packaging. As for the taste it was light and sweet. I think I was expecting some vanilla flavor because the picture on the packaging had a picture of pie with ice cream on it. There was no vanilla flavor but I still enjoyed it.This candy bar has a nice apple flavor that wasn’t overpowering. I recommend trying this especially if you love apples!

Bucket list #42 have a pizza eating contest

Hello, my bucket list friends ! During my amazing sleepover weekend with my amazing awesome friend ,I crossed another item off my list . ( you can read about the other list item HERE ) Now without further delay here is the second item that I crossed off in 2019 !

 

Bucket list #42 have a pizza eating contest

My friend and I had gotten two pizzas for our sleepover we ate one Friday night and saved the next one for Saturday . I asked my friend if she wanted to have a pizza eating contest and because she is so awesome she said yes . We had cooked the pizza the night before and when we put in a container to go in the fridge we didn’t use a pizza cutter so the pieces were all uneven.  So it wasn’t a fair contest but we didn’t really care . I finished my piece first and won but it was smaller then my friend’s piece. I took a video of us having the contest and it is a pretty funny video at lest I think so . I might upload the video to You Tube soon but in the meantime take a look and some stills from the video.

Cheers to another list item being crossed off my bucket list !

The end of the great refrigerator saga of 2018

Hello, my bucket list friends ! Some of you may recall a post I wrote in September about our refrigerator breaking and all the problems that we had trying to get it fixed then trying to get it replaced . ( you can read about it here ) At the end of that post the issue was still on going although we did get a mini refrigerator as a temporary fix but the saga continued until October 31st when we finally got a new refrigerator ! Now it’s time for the happy ending !

 

The end of the great refrigerator saga of 2018

After another failed delivery and feeling like we may never get a new refrigerator October 31st was the day we finally go a new one ! It was a long stressful road but at last it had a happy ending ! The new fridge is up and running and I’m ready for a new box of Ice cream bars! It’s so great to buy whatever I want at the store without worrying about fitting everything into the mini refrigerator . After not having a full sized refrigerator since August I’m very happy to have one now ! Here are some pictures of our new beautiful refrigerator.

Happy 28th birthday and a trip to the ER

Hello, My bucket list friends I had on 28th birthday on August 26th and it was a wild one ! I really didn’t see it turning out the way it did but that’s life for you ! Hang on tight and I’ll tell about my crazy birthday !

 

 

My 28th birthday and a trip to the ER

My birthday started with a trip to Peet’s coffee and petting some very cute dogs there before heading to work .  While I was at work my amazing friend brought me cake ! After work I went out to eat with my family we went to PF Chang’s. The food was so good and the desserts were wonderful ! After dinner we were driving back home and a pain that I had been having throughout the day began to get worse and worse . It was soon unbearable about an 8 on the pain scale . I didn’t want to go to the ER because it is expensive but due to the amount of pain I was in I didn’t have a choice . I’m not sure what time it was when I got to the ER maybe around 10 pm . Right away the tests began to find a source of the pain . After hours of doing tests and waiting the ultrasound showed that I has a cyst on my left ovary. It is about 5 1/2 CM. long . It was decided that I did not need anything further right then but that needed to talk to my doctor in a day or so . I was given some pain medication and after 3 AM I left the ER. The issue with the cyst is still on going . I’m going to be talking to a surgeon next week but I’ll write more about that another time . Overall it was a birthday I wont soon forget !
