My adventure to the pumpkin patch and other fun places !

Hello, my bucket list friends ! I thought it would be fun to tell you about my latest adventures. Ready ? Set? Let’s go !!!

My adventure to the pumpkin patch and other fun places

On Saturday my mom and I went to a local pumpkin patch. We went to this location last year and I really like it. It’s on the smaller side and that’s one of the things I like about it. Also the crowds are pretty low compared to some of the bigger pumpkin patches I’ve been too. I enjoyed taking pictures in this pumpkin patch . I also found the perfect pumpkins to decorate. After the pumpkin patch we went to the Dollar Tree. I haven’t been to this location in a while but I’m really glad that I went because I finally got the glow in the dark beads I’ve been wanting! After that we went to Michaels to buy supplies to decorate our pumpkins with. While we were in Michaels I spent a good amount of time looking at the Christmas stuff. I know it’s October but I can’t wait for Christmas time to begin. I got blue and green paint for my pumpkins I also got a cute craft kit and a few other fun things . In my next post I’ll talk about decorating my pumpkins! Thanks for reading!

Savers at night

Hello,my bucket list friends! On Saturday I had a night time thrift shopping adventure. I thought it would be fun to share it with all of you so here we go!

I had a long day of work on Saturday but I was in the mood to go thrift shopping. I’m working at different location now and it’s pretty close to the Savers that I go to. What I love most about that Savers location is the books! My mom and I love finding fun books to read. I got off work a half an hour before Savers closed but I figured that would be just enough time to find some good books! As soon as I was off work I hurried to get my stuff and get out the parking lot where my mom was waiting for me. It was a short drive and we parked quickly. As soon as we started walking towards the store someone in the parking lot told me to hurry. I thought it was funny. When we walked in the store an employee told us we had 20 minutes. That’s was good enough for me. On our way back to the book section I saw this beautiful carousel toy . I told my mom to go ahead while I took a look at it. It didn’t take me long to decide that I wanted it. I met my mom over in the book section and we got right to work finding books we wanted. After finding some books I wanted. I went to the toy section. I got a bag of 101 Dalmatians toys and a My Little Pony Equestria Girls doll. When I returned to the book section my mom had found some more books. I took a look at the books again and I found even more books that looked good. I even found some books that I’ve been wanting to read. While in the book section we were told that the store was closed and that it was time to get in line. I was really happy with my finds during this short shopping trip.

Summer shopping adventure 2020

Hello,my bucket list friends! On Friday and Saturday I went shopping to some of my favorite places. Without delay let’s start with Friday. On Friday I went to a large Dollar Tree store. This location is one of my favorites. I found a lot of items when it came to arts and crafts including a wooden elephant, beads, crayons, stickers ,a My Little Pony art kit and more. Some of my other favorite finds from the Dollar Tree were a pair of palm tree flip flops, some blind bag toys, and a flower pen. The next day I went shopping at the mall. I went to a few different stores including Claire’s and Old Navy. At Claire’s I was able find some items on sale that I liked such as a set of three heart earrings and a set of two necklaces. I also got a new hair bow even though it was not on sale. Some other highlights from my mall trip include a pair of watermelon flip flops from Old Navy , a Crayola coloring book from Target and hair brush from Daiso. I ended my Shopping adventure with coffee and a soft pretzel from the food court! I hope all of you had a great weekend !

Summer shopping fun !

To start our day we went to Target I was in much need of bug spray and sunscreen but of course I stopped at the dollar section first. There were new items it the dollar section since I had last been there. I was excited to see these big squishy toys for three dollars each. I chose the big squishy sun.  I also got a pair of socks and a bird shaped toy that shoots a ball from it’s nose. After Target we went to the Dollar Tree . My friend had been looking at some office supplies at Target. She decided to wait and see if she could get what she needed at the Dollar Tree and guess what ? She found what she needed there and saved money ! I found some goodies as well . I got a glittery sign that says ” Hello summer ” two craft kits and more. It was a great day and I can’t wait to have more like it!

Dollar Tree and Target hauls

Dollar Tree – I started off the first day of May with a trip to the Dollar Tree. I had to get some poster board for a project but of course that wasn’t all I got. I was very happy with the items I found during this trip. Some of my favorite items are My Little Pony toys , a pair of socks with  pairs of socks on them, a pen with a doughnut on top , and cat stickers. I also got a wooden butterfly. When I get around to painting it I will be sure to post about it! My mom was with me for this trip and she found somethings she needed as well. It was a successful shopping trip for both of us!

 

Target – Yesterday I went to Target with my friend. She has somethings she needed to get there so I came along to see what I could find.  In the Dollar section I found some fun items including summer stickers and toy sloth that you grow. another thing I got was a fun shirt that I can’t wait to wear this summer. I also finally got one of the new style My Little Pony toys! I had a really fun time shopping with my friend. Oh and when I grow the sloth toy I will be sure to post about it !

Two days of thrift shopping !

Hello, my bucket list friends ! One of my favorite things to do in my free time is to go thrift shopping. Recently I got to go thrift shopping two days in a row and I can’t wait to tell you about the things I found . Here we go !

 

 

Two days of thrift shopping !

On Friday my friend and I went to a Good Will that is pretty new. I’ve heard it also the biggest Good Will in our area. I have been to this location before and I really like how clean and organized it is. I went looking for craft kits first and I found this really cute craft kit where you make animal faces from paper plates and stickers I haven’t done this kit yet but I’m looking forward to it. I also got an American Girl book, a Disneyland picture frame, some very cute PJ pants and more. On Saturday I worked early and got off in the afternoon. When my mom picked me up I asked her if we could go to the Goodwill that is a few miles down the road from my work. I have also been to this location before. I’m super excited to tell you that I found something really cool at this thrift store. When I was looking in the toy section I was so thrilled to see a Lisa Frank Game that I had as a kid. It’s a fishing style game where you use magnets to collect as many Lisa Frank  characters as you can before the timer runs out. The box was still in plastic so I knew that it was a complete set. I also found a Disney World shot glass from 2000 and a American Girl book. I was very happy with my two days of thrift shopping and I hope to do it again sometime. Rock On – Christina Epperly

E bay haul September 2019 part 1

Hello,my bucket list friends ! Recently I did a shopping spree on E bay to find some items that I haven’t been able to find at the Good will. My two main focuses were American Girl doll clothes and first generation My Little Pony toys. I can’t wait to show you what I got so here we go !

E bay haul September 2019 part 1

American Girl Doll clothes- I really wanted to get some new clothes for my American Girl doll Clover but I didn’t want to buy them new because they are pretty expensive. I went on E bay to find some used American Girl clothes at an affordable price. It was harder then I thought it would be. If you look on E bay there are a lot of people selling home made or other brands of doll clothes that will fit American Girl Dolls but that are not American Girl brand clothes. Now there is nothing wrong with these kinds of doll clothes it just wasn’t what I was looking for. When I did find American Girl Doll clothes the auctions were competitive. However I was able to get some cute dolls clothes that were  from the American Girl place in Chicago. I was very excited to put them on Clover and of course they looked great on her!

 

My Little Pony Moon Dancer G1

I’ve been wanting to add some G1 Ponies to my collection also known as the Ponies that came out in the 80’s. I found that it was much easier to buy G1 ponies one by one instead of bidding on a bunch of them in one lot. I bought a few ponies and Moon Dancer was the first one that came. I just have to say she is so beautiful ! I’m very happy to add her to my pony collection.

 

My Little Pony Sweet Stuff G1

Sweet Stuff was my 2nd G1 pony to arrive from E bay! I’m very excited to welcome her in my collection!  I love her hair and her overall look.

 

American Girl inner star university  book

I love American Girl books but I had never gotten the chance to read one of these books before. The book I got it called A Girl’s Best Friend. The Inner Star University books are in the same style as the choose your own adventure books. As you read through the story you get to make choices for the main charter. It’s up to you how the story goes! There are more books in this series I hope to get more sometime.
