San Francisco day trip Aug. 2019

Hello, my bucket list friends ! Earlier this month my mom and I went on a fun day trip to San Francisco. I can’t wait to tell you all about it so hold on tight and here we go !

San Francisco day trip Aug. 2019

I’m so blessed that I live only about an hour drive from a major tourist city! I’ve been to San Francisco quite a few times but this city has so much to offer it wasn’t hard to find things there that I haven’t done before. When we got to SF we signed up for a boat tour that passed under the golden gate bridge . ( I’ve walked across the bridge before you can read about it HERE) Before the boat tour we took a walk over to pier 39 and I did one of my favorite things souvenir shopping! I all ready have some souvenirs from my previous trips to San Francisco including some snow globes but I had some things in mind that I was looking for. I found this amazing snow globe that has the whole state of California on one side and San Francisco on the other side . I was so happy when I saw this snow globe I knew I just had to get it ! I also knew I wanted to get a stuffed animal wearing a San Francisco shirt I have quite a few stuff animals wearing shirts from other destinations but I didn’t have one from SF. I got a very cute seal that was wearing a San Francisco sweat shirt I picked out a few other things then it was time for the boat tour ! We were one of the last people to get on the boat but we found some good seats by a window on the upper deck. The boat ride included an audio tour. I enjoyed listening to the audio tour it provided all kinds of interesting facts about the places we were passing. It was so cool to pass under the Golden Gate bridge! The boat was packed full of people so it was hard to get good pictures but I managed to get some good shots of some of the things we passed. After the boat it was time for lunch. Went we went Boudin bakery I loved looking at all bread in fun shapes.  For lunch I had an amazing veggie sandwich . After lunch we went somewhere I’ve been wanting to go for a while the Aquarium of the Bay. This Aquarium was pretty small but it was still fun. I enjoyed looking at the fish and the otters. After enjoying the aquarium we decided to go on a bus tour. We went on the big bus tour. On the big bus tour you can hop on and off the bus at different locations but we decided to stay on the bus for the most of the loop and listen to the tour guide as he gave some interesting information about every stop. We ended up getting off the bus a stop or two before the end of the full loop. When we got of the bus we ended up walking  around pier 39 some more and we went and looked at the the famous seals. After that we walked to a Starbucks for some food and drinks before heading back home after a fun filled day.

Summer fun catch up ! 8/2019

Hello, my bucket list friends ! I’ve been so busy writing the posts about my vacation to Portland . I’ve gotten behind on telling you all about my summer fun so let’s catch up shall we ?

Summer fun catch up ! 8/2019

Ok, so where do I start ? I know I’ll start with going to see the Lion King after I  got back from Portland. If you knew me when I was young you would know how much of a Lion king fan I am. It’s still one of my favorite movies to this day. When I saw the remake last month I was able to pick out some the lines that were different from the original. I enjoyed the remake it’s was very impressive I recommend going to see if you get the chance. I’ve also been using my Yogurt Land gift card that I won. I’ve been having a fun time treating people to yogurt. My friend and I went to one of our favorite books stores and we picked out blind date books for each other. A blind date book is a book that is wrapped up and you don’t know what it is till after you buy it!  Before I left for Portland I had a fun time celebrating the 4th of July I got some great pictures of the Fire Works . I also got to go to Petroglyph  which is a studio where you paint ceramics and I painted a very cute bunny ! On the last day of July I bought a set of my little pony toys their tails turn to rainbow colors when you put them in water. You know how the saying goes time flies when your having fun and that perfectly sums up Summer for me. I think we are pretty much caught up now so enjoy some pictures of my summer fun!

Portland OR. vacation part 6

Hello,my bucket list friends! welcome to the six and final part of my vacation to Portland! I’m excited to share the last part of my vacation with all of you , Here we go!

 

Portland OR. vacation part 6

On the last day of our vacation we had a good amount of time before we had to be at the airport but since our hotel was booked up we were not able to get a late check out. Luckily our hotel was able to hold our luggage for us while we went for a walk to pass the time.  We didn’t really have a plan for our walk our route was random. We did end up spending a good amount of time in this very cute toy store. The were so many cute toys in there including this very cute and round plush unicorn. we also got to see some awesome street art and a very cool fountain. Before we headed back to the hotel  we stopped at Starbucks for some drinks. After that we went back to the hotel got our bags and headed to the airport. At the airport we got some lunch before flying back home.  It was a nice relaxing day and great conclusion to our vacation.

Tie – Dye Frappuccino !!

Hello, my bucket list friends ! A lot of you know that I’m a big fan of Starbucks. when I saw that they had come out with a fun fruit flavored drink, I just had to try it ! I’m excited to tell you all about it so let’s go !

Tie – Dye Frappuccino !!

This story starts last week , when I was just scrolling through Instagram. I came across a post from Starbucks announcing their new limited time drink called the Tie – Dye Frappuccino. I got excited and I knew I just had to try it before it ran out. I had work later that afternoon, I figured that I would just leave early for work and go to the Starbucks near by. My friend wanted to join me on this Tie – Dye Frappuccino quest so she came and picked me up. Then we headed off to Starbucks! I was a little worried that they may have sold out already because this new colorful drink was being written about on news websites! It turned out that there was no need to worry because there was no line and plenty of Tie – Dye Frappuccinos left to go around. When our drinks were ready I was not disappointed ! They looked very beautiful. The only down side is that they turned to all yellow pretty quickly but hey yellow is a happy color!Now, on to the taste . The Tie – Dye Frappuccino  had a bold fruity flavor. It tasted like a shake plus it was topped with whipped cream! I really enjoyed it but if your more of a coffee or chocolate fan I would skip this one.

Toy Story 4 review ( Spoiler free)

Hello, my bucket list friends ! I have been very limited on time lately but I’m determined to catch up on my blog posts. Last month I got to see Toy Story 4 and I can’t wait to tell you about it . Let’s go !

Toy Story 4 review ( Spoiler free)

I have seen all of the Toy Story movies and I was looking forward to the latest addition. This one is perfect for summertime because not only does it take place during the summer ,most of the movie takes place during a road trip! The characters that fans loved from the previous movies are back along with some new ones as well. My favorites of the new characters are Ducky and Bunny . This very funny duo brought many laughs ! As with the other movies before it ,there are some serious moments but don’t let that prevent you from going to see this fun filled adventure. I can honestly say that there was never a slow moment in this movie. The story moved at a perfect pace there was not a minute where I was board. Of course this wouldn’t be a proper review of Toy Story 4 if I didn’t mention Forky ! Forky is a very fun a unique charter he also provides lots of laughs and he is very cute! To sum this all up go see this movie ! It’s a great summertime movie for all ages. Rock On – Christina Epperly
