My latest weekend adventures!

Hello,my bucket list friends! It’s time for another weekend blog post! This weekend I went to a local attraction that I had never been to before and went thrift shopping. I’m excited to tell you all about that and more! Before we dive into my weekend I just wanted to say that I usually start my weekend posts with what I did on Friday. However,I already covered that in another post. ( You can read about it HERE) Now, with all being said let’s get into my weekend adventures.

Saturday – My big adventure on Saturday was going to visit Hakone Gardens for the first time. This attraction is pretty close to where I live but I had never visited it before. Before we went to the garden my mom and I stopped at Starbucks for some cold drinks because it was a hot day. When we got to the gardens we parked in the large parking lot. I was both happy and surprised to see that it wasn’t very busy. We went to the gift shop to buy our tickets for the garden. I also got some souvenires. After the gift shop it was time to explore the gardens. There where many beautiful things to see in Hakone Gardens. Some of my favorites are the water fall, the Koi fish in the pond, the bamboo garden and this cute little bridge. I had a fun time taking pictures and walking around the gardens. There were some spots where there was a really good view. There was some construction going on so we didn’t get to explore all of the paths around the garden but I’m very happy with what we were able to see especially the waterfall. Waterfalls are so relaxing to watch and listen to. I also liked that there was a good amount of shade in the gardens because it was a very hot and sunny day. After enjoying the garden we went to one of my favorite Goodwill locations. I did not get a huge haul on this thrift trip but I did find some fun things that I was excited to take home with me. Goodwill gets items from Target that they didn’t sale and on this thrift shopping adventure every thing I got except for one thing came from the Target section.The one item that I got that was not from Target was a craft kit. This craft kit comes with a roll of tape that has designs on it and markers to color it with. This was an interesting craft kit and I was happy to have found it at the Goodwill. The other things that I got that were from the Target section where a wooden craft kit, an ice skating Barbie doll, and some summer themed bubbles. I’m happy with my small but awesome thrift haul. After Goodwill we went to Starbucks again for more cold drinks because it was a very hot day.

Sunday – I did some errands on Sunday. I was also having bad muscle pain on my side so I didn’t have that much fun when I was out running errands. However I still went to Starbucks and I also went to Safeway and got chocolate that had prizes inside. I’m happy to say that I’m feeling much better now and I was still able to enjoy my weekend.

One four day weekend and one regular weekend!

Hello, my bucket list friends! It looks like I’ve fallen behind on my weekend blog posts,so the best thing to do in a time like this is to combine the posts! That’s right my friends in this post I will be covering what I did this weekend plus what I did over the long 4th of July weekend. I have a lot to cover in this post so let’s get to it!

Fourth of July weekend

Friday – After work on Friday, I went thrift shopping at Savers. I had a coupon and I was excited to use it. When I went to the store I was disappointed to see that there were not many dolls there. However, I still manged to find some fun things that I was excited to welcome to my collection. My favorite item I got was this American Girl puzzle set that comes with a frame to put the puzzle in. Some of my other favorites from this thrift ship adventure include a pair of Old Navy shorts, a squishy plush owl from TY, a Disney mug from the Allstar Sports resort, and a unicorn from Build a Bear Workshop that had a cute outfit on. It was a good way to start off this long weekend. On Saturday I went to Starbucks and the Dollar Tree. At the Dollar Tree I got a set of 4th of July magnets and a pop bracelet that I’m actually wearing right now. On Saturday evening I went with my parents to see Point of Grace in concert. The concert was in a beautiful venue that was in the middle of a bunch of redwood trees. The concert was great! I’m so glad we got to go and see it. Sunday was the day before the 4th of July. I went to Starbucks of course. I also went to Safeway. At Safeway I got one of my favorite things. Candy that comes with a toy inside. On July 4th I started my celebration by doing a July 4th craft kit. My mom and I went to a local park that was having a 4th of July celebration. We road the train that they have there. We also listened to an orchestra that was performing at the park. My work was also was closed on the 5th so I had an extra day to sleep in and take it easy. I took a bath with two bath bombs and I went to vist my horse friend Dominic. It was a pretty awesome long weekend.

Normal two day weekend. – Last weekend was a pretty normal and a pretty relaxed weekend. On Friday after work I went to Target. My main goal at Target was to get bath bombs. I got four bath bombs that had prizes inside. I also got another Barbie doll for my collection. When Saturday came I didn’t have any solid plans but I did end up going to Starbucks, Yogurtland, and a local park. It had been a while since I went to Yogurtland. I was happy to go again. When we got to the park I was surprised to see that it was not very crowded. I walked with my mom and Axle ( a super cute dog) then I went to the playground to go down the slide. On Sunday I decided to use two of the bath bombs I got from Target. I also drew my summer picture that day. It was a simple but an overall enjoyable weekend.

One busy weekend!

Hello,my bucket list friends! It’s time for another weekend blog post! This weekend was pretty busy as you can see from the title. Let’s start with Friday. On Friday evening I went to the Goodwill. I needed to get a dress for a work event but of course I had to see if there was anything I wanted to add to my collection. I think someone donated a TY collection to the Goodwill because I got two Beanie Buddies and a few Beanie Babies. My other fun find was a mini paint set it’s just so cute! Oh and about the dress I mentioned earlier, I found one that I love. It still had the tags on it. I was so happy that I decided to get a dress that night. After the Goodwill I went to Panera Bread and Walgreens. At Walgreens I got a Barbie puzzle and a squishy toy. On Saturday, I went to Starbucks then I went to Barnes and Noble where I got some great books. One of the Barbie books I got came with stickers. After that we went to a baby shower for my cousin. It was great to see everyone and the decorations were so cute! The day had been pretty busy already but it was not over yet! There was a gathering going on in my neighborhood. The big highlight of that neighborhood gathering was that there were so many dogs there! I love being around dogs especially happy ones! Sunday was another busy day. I spent most of the day with my friend. We started off the day by going to church. It was my first time at this church but my friend had been there before. I really liked the church that we went to and I hope to go back again sometime. After church we went to the Goodwill,Subway and Starbucks. At the Goodwill I got a Barbie doll and an American Girl book. We ended the day by going to a Mexican restaurant. It was great to spend a day with my awesome friend. There you have it my jam-packed weekend. Thanks for reading!
