My first movie of 2023 plus going to Target and more!

Hello, my bucket list, friends! Another weekend has come to an end so now I’m going to write about it! This weekend was full of some of my favorite things, and I can’t wait to tell you about it. without any more delay, here we go!

Friday – I worked the closing shift on this day, but I went into town a little early, so I would have time to go to the toy store before my shift started. At the toy store, I got some frog stickers, a ring shaped like a panda head, a toy car, and two shaped erasers. After the toy store, I still had a good amount of time before work, so I went to the candy store where I got a lollipop that has purple sparkly lips on the stick. After all of that, I still had one more thing to do before my shift started. I went to get coffee at a local coffee shop that is close to my work. Then I went to work. Work went well, I love being in a store that is full of beautiful plants.

Saturday – I had this day off, and I made sure to plan some fun things for the day. I got tickets to see 80 for Brady, a movie that I had been wanting to. If you have not heard of this movie, I recommend looking it up. The movie theater we went to was located in my favorite mall. We had some time before the movie so we went to Claire’s. They were having the three for three sale that they have often. I went to the clearance rack, and I got some fun items, including a hair bow and a ring. After Claire’s, we walked back to the theater. I got coffee, and my mom got tea at the theater. Then it was movie time. I won’t give anything away, but the movie was so good. I highly recommend going to see it. It was a lot of fun to watch and it was also inspiring. After the movie, we went to the Target that is part of the mall. At Target, I got another My First Barbie doll. I already had the one with blond hair, so this time, I got the one with brown hair. I’m excited to have this doll in my collection. In the dollar section, I got two small craft kits and a Disney activity kit. After that, we left the mall and went to the hardware store to get some bird seed. At the hardware store, I got two squishy toys. Before we went home, we went to Starbucks, and I got coffee and a cakepop. It was a good way to wrap up my adventures for the day. I went home and relaxed, but I did get a visit from my neighbor’s very cute dog. I also made pasta for dinner. It was a really fun day.

Sunday – I worked the opening shift this day. Of course, I went to Starbucks before going to work. After a normal day at work , my mom picked me up, and we stopped at Safeway before going home to watch the Super Bowl. At Safeway, in addition to food items, I also got a cute bunny toy at Safeway. I did enjoy watching the Super Bowl, but I was hoping for more from the commercials. However, there were a few commercials that did stand out, but overall, they were not as good as they have been in previous years. I really liked the Amazon add with the dog. I wish there would have been more ads like that. Anyways, watching the Super Bowl was a good way to end the weekend.

Thanks for reading about my weekend fun !

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

Aladdin 2019 movie review ( spoiler free)

When I saw the previews for the new Aladdin movie I knew I just had to see it. It looked like a very fun and attention grabbing movie and it was. The live action version kept all the songs and charters that I loved about the original movie but it added more to it! I really loved one of the new songs! This movie was full of the magic that you would expect from Disney. The changes that were made from the original worked well and it didn’t seemed forced. Overall I really enjoyed The live action version of Aladdin and I highly recommend going to see it !

Dumbo 2019 Movie review ( Spoiler Free)

Hello, my bucket list friends on Monday night I got to go see the remake of the movie Dumbo. I’m huge Disney fan and the previews for this remake looked really good. I was excited to see it and I’m so glad I did!

 

 

 

Dumbo 2019 Movie review ( Spoiler Free)

 

First Things first week days night are a great time to go see movies. We went to a nice theater where you have assigned seats and reclining chairs.¬† We went on Monday so it was not busy at all! There was no line for popcorn or the bathroom and it was just really nice not to be packed in with a bunch of other people. Now, let’s get to the movie ! The last time I watch the original Dumbo movie was probably sometime in the 90’s so I remember parts of it but not the whole thing but I do know that there was a cute new spin on my favorite scene from original movie. Hint it’s the scene with bubbles ! The main difference I noticed about the new movie is that there was a lot more focus on the circus performers and their lives and interactions with Dumbo instead of just focusing on Dumbo’s story. The actors in this movie were amazing everyone worked really well together . Of Course the CGI was mind blowing as well. It was hard to tell sometimes what was CGI and what wasn’t. The story was told very well and I really liked the well rounded plot and the flow of the story . The movie had a great overall pacing ,there were no lagging moments. It was a great adventure story and I recommend going to see it !

Rock on ! – Christina Epperly
