This weekend put me in a Christmas state of mind

Hello, my bucket list friends! Another weekend has gone by so it is time for another post about my weekend. This Post however has a little bit of a theme. I know it’s not even Thanksgiving yet but I’m in a Christmas state of mind! My weekend kind of ended up having a Christmas theme to it. I’m already looking forward to the Christmas fun that is going to be coming my way next month. Without any more delay let’s get to my Christmas themed weekend.

Friday – I had work on Friday but before that I went and got Starbucks. I got one of the Christmas themed cups. Starbucks is also in a Christmas state of mind. After Starbucks I went in to work. I really enjoy my work now so my days are much happier then they were before. I now work at Urban Remedy and they have amazing food. They are worth checking out if your are looking for some healthy and yummy food. After work I went to Walgreens. I had a big project that I was working on and I needed to get some items for it. My church participated in Operation Christmas Child this year. If you have never heard of Operation Christmas Child, Let me give you a quick explanation. Basically you are giving a child a shoebox full of Christmas presents. You chose a gender and age range and then fill the box with items with that in mind. I put together three shoe boxes. I needed to get some more items for the boxes so that was my main reason for going to Walgreens. I also got some items for myself while I was there. The Christmas section at Walgreens was full of fun items. I got a plush reindeer, a gingerbread man toy, and a art kit. I’m happy to say that I got many great items for the shoe boxes. This little shopping trip was a great way to start the weekend.

Saturday – I did have work on Saturday but I did have some time before work to get Starbucks and go for a walk in the park. The park that we have been walking at lately has become one of my favorites because it has a playground it is usually not very busy. While I was at work I tried the Sour Patch Kids popcorn that I got at Five Below. I will make a post reviewing the popcorn but I will say that I did like it. On my lunch break at work I walked to a toy store. I’m so happy that I work with in walking distance to a toy store now. Toy stores are something that definitely go well with Christmastime. This toy store was in a Christmas State of mind right along with me. They were many Christmas items available however the items I ended up getting were not Christmas themed. One of the items I got could be considered a Christmas item because it would make a really good stocking stuffer. It was something that I don’t remember seeing before. It’s called Play Foam Pals. It is a container of play foam with a toy hidden inside. I also got some stickers and two animal shaped erasers. That night after work I opened up the play foam and saw that there was a penguin inside. I’m happy that I went to the toy store on my lunch break because it became the highlight of my day.

Sunday – Sunday was another work day for me. I Started my day just like I did the day before. We got coffee then went on a walk at the same park. After that I went to work and I had a good day. It was a shorter shift so I didn’t have a lunch break. However, after work my mom and I went to Safeway to pick up a few things. Safeway had their Christmas items displayed in different areas of the store. In the frozen food isle I was surprised to see the Barbie Color reveal advent calendar. It looked similar to last year’s advent calendar so I had to look it up and make sure it was a different one. Once I saw that it was I decided to get it. Once I got it down from the top on the freezer I saw that there was a different Barbie advent calendar behind it. It took me a little bit but I decided to get the color reveal advent calendar that I had originally saw. It was truly a good way to end the weekend.

Thank for reading about my weekend! I hope you had a wonderful and that you have beautiful week!

Just another great weekend in California

Hello, my bucket list friends! In my last post I talked about what I did during my weekdays now it is time to talk about what I did during my weekend. Sometimes I include Friday in these posts but since I already covered Friday in the post I just mentioned ( You can read it HERE) I will only be talking about Saturday and Sunday in this post. Without anymore introduction it is time to get to it!

Saturday – Looking through my pictures of what I did this day I remember that I tried a candy that I got at Whole Foods the day before. I’m going to do a separate post reviewing this item but I will say that it was really good. I’m happy to say that on this day I went to Starbucks and then went for a walk in the park with my coffee, my mom and the neighbor’s dog. It was a very beautiful day and I was  happily surprised to see that the park was not busy. I climbed to the top of the playground and then went down the slide. I posted the video of me going down the slide on my Instagram my user name is summerrockstar if you want to see it. After the park I went to CVS. I love that CVS sells Claire’s products. I got a set of three Claire’s bracelets plus a bunch of other great items including a TY plush toy, a magazine about animals, hair bows, and peppermint candy. After my little shopping spree I waited in the car with the dog while my mom bought birdseed at another store in the shoppingcenter. While I was in the car I posted on BE Real. I took a picture of my new TY plush sitting on the dashboard. I was very happy with my Be Real post for the day. After that it was time to head back home. After relaxing at the house for a while, we went to go visit a family member. On the way there we stopped at a store where I got this super cute gingerbread cookie. It was a pretty great day!

Sunday – This day was pretty relaxed overall however I did do a cute mouse suncatcher craft kit and we also went into town to do some errands. I happy to say that yes these errands included Starbucks. When I went to pick up the drinks that I had ordered at Starbucks, I saw that they had accidently made one of the drinks  I had ordered iced instead of hot. Not only were they super cool about remaking it they let me keep the iced one too.  I’m actually drinking that iced one right now as I write this! Our other errands were Petco, Trader Joes and Safeway. At Trader Joes I got a snack that I had never seen before. I can’t wait to try it and do a review on it and at Safeway I got a cupcake that had three butterfly rings on top! It was a pretty easy going day but I enjoyed it.

Thank you for reading! I hope all of you had great weekends!

My last weekend as a preschool teacher

Hello, my bucket list friends! Today is my last day at work before I officially leave the world of child care. Hopefully this the last day I will have to wake up early for awhile. Before my career officially comes to an end I had one more weekend as someone who had to go back to the world of preschool/childcare on Monday morning. This weekend was pretty normal but it was also pretty nice. On Friday after work I went to Safeway to get a few things. My favorite things that I got at Safeway that day are a pack of 24 candy canes and a Christmas cat coloring book. I know it’s October but I can’t help it. I love Christmas! On Saturday I did one of my favorite activities. I went to Starbucks then I went to a park. At the park I made sure to go down the slide! I like the play structure at this park and it was not crowded at all. After the park I went to a local toy store where I got some horse toys, a craft kit, a pop toy, and a bath bomb style toy that has a sea animal toy hidden inside. I should add that the weather was absolutely beautiful. It did get cold later that day but when I was in town it was really nice. After I came home it was a pretty relaxed day overall. My cat got to spend some time outside that is one of his favorite things to do. Later on in the I made a fun video for Instagram it was windy and cold when I made that video so I went back inside right after recording that video. ( You can see the video on my Instagram page my username is summerrockstar)I also spent sometime playing Project Makeover on my phone I love that game. Sunday was a pretty relaxed day as well. I finally decorated the biggest pumpkin that I got at the pumpkin patch earlier this month. The highlight of my day was going on our normal Sunday errands. I got a snack to review at Trader Joe’s, and I got a big cupcake with three rings on top at Safeway! Oh and before all that I went to Starbucks and got an iced coffee. Later that night I watched the Rookie one of my favorite TV shows. It was a pretty nice and easy weekend.

My wonderful weekend including going to a new Target!

Hello,my bucket list friends! I had a super awesome weekend! This weekend made me feel like I was in my 20s again. My amazing weekend started on Friday when I was on the way to my friend’s house for a two day sleepover.  I decided to stop at a store to get some snacks for our sleepover fun.When my mom pulled in the the shopping center parking lot I saw that the new Target was open! The grand opening was happening on Sunday but they were having a special opening that night. I was so excited when I saw that the Target was open that I called my friend and asked her to come meet me at the Target so she could see how amazing it was. The store was decorated with balloons and I was just so excited to be there. The store was so perfectly organized. I  loved how they had the bath bombs in a very easy to find place. I was very excited to vist the toy section where I got two Barbie dolls including a Barbie color reveal doll. Of course I also had fun in the Dollar section. I got so many amazing items. On the way out we noticed that there was a table of food including a Target cake! The next day my friend and I went to an event at a thrift store that I had never been to before. This thrift store was interesting because it had a bunch of different buildings that had different categories of items. I ended up getting three different items at this event. A Starbucks travel mug, a pair of colorful vans shoes, and a book. After that we went to the Goodwill and I got so many things! Sometimes you find a lot when you go thrifting sometimes you find nothing.  I was very happy that this was one of the times I found a lot. Some of the items I got were a Orange Bird sipper from Disney World, a set of bath bombs, three TY brand toys, some clothes, a Barbie Extra toy, and a My Little Pony travel mug. After all that shopping we were ready for lunch. We went to Chili’s and it was just what we needed. The Chili’s that we went to was in a mall. We decided to walk around the mall for a bit after lunch. As we were walking we saw that a local library had set up it’s own book store. I got three books for only a dollar each! It was a great day for good deals! After the mall we went to Starbucks and the car wash. Going to a car wash is a lot of fun when you are with your friend! After that we went back to her house and we relaxed, ate pasta, and watched a lot of YouTube until it was time to go to bed. When Sunday came around I was surprised as always at how fast the time went by. Before we parted ways we went back to the Target to go to the Starbucks. The Target was so crowded good thing we had done our shopping on Friday night. It was hard to say goodbye to my friend after a wonderful weekend but I had a few things I needed to do before the week began. My parents and I went on our normal Sunday errands. The highlight of our errands was that I  got a bottle of ginger ale and I carried it to the car in my arms like it was my prized possession. Oh and that night The Rookie one of my favorite TV shows came back for another season! It was a really amazing weekend and I miss it so much! I wonder what I’ll do this weekend.
