Blogmas day 3 candy, play-doh, and more!

Hello, my bucket list, friends! Well, it looks like we have made it to blogmas day 3. For today’s blogmas, I thought I would talk about what I did yesterday. I had some time before work after I got dropped off in town, so I decided to visit the coffee shop and the candy store. My main reason for going to the candy store was to buy a mineral water, but while I was there, I also got this lollipop holder that is shaped to look like Sky from Paw Patrol. Then I went to work and had a good and normal day at work. After work, I went to Safeway. I got food, of course, but I also got some fun things too. I got two containers of play-doh,some flavored candy canes, a container that had two Hot Wheels color reveal cars inside, and three chocolate candies that each come with a toy. I was happy with my first set of color reveal cars, and I’m excited to see what cars I get this time. Thanks for reading, and have a great last month of 2022!

Midweek Christmas themed Target adventure

Hello, my bucket list friends! Yesterday was one of my days off this week and I’m happy to say that I went to Target! I really wanted to shop for some Christmas items before a lot of items get bought up. Before I went to Target I stopped at Starbucks. There is something special about shopping while drinking coffee. When I got to Target I first looked in the dollar section where I got a pair of socks before I continued on to the Christmas section. You could tell that a lot of people had been here but there was still plenty to choose from. They had a great selection of three dollar ornaments. I kept finding super cute ones and adding them to my basket. There was also a large selection of Christmas candy. I got two peppermint lollipops and candy cane flavored mints. I had seen pictures of some of the fun Christmas items Target has this year and one item I was really interested in was the Target gingerbread store kit so I made sure to get one of thoes. Another item that I was looking for was the Hot Wheels Target truck. I’m very happy to say that I found this item. It came with a cute little Target shopping cart! After finding all those items, there was one more thing I was excited to buy. Christmas themed bath bombs with prizes! They had a set that had six bath bombs in it so that is what I ended up getting. I also got a craft kit because I almost always find more items then I thought I would when I go to Target. I will say however that if you are wanting to get Christmas items from Target I would get them sooner rather than later.

Thanks for reading about my fun shopping trip to Target!

My fun shopping adventure at Five Below

Hello,my bucket list friends! On Wednesday I had the day off and I was excited because there is now a Five Below store in a city that is near me. I love going to five Below but I have only been when I have been traveling. If you have not heard of Five Below let me tell you a little bit about it. Five Below is a discount store like Dollar Tree but there prices are typically five dollars and lower. However they also have some higher priced items. I was excited all day for my evening trip to Five Below. Before we went to Five Below we stopped at Starbucks. When we arrived at five below we were greeted by an employee. I was very excited to get my shopping trip started. I saw that they had Christmas items displayed in the front area of the store. I started my shopping by adding a pair of slipper socks to my basket. I loved that they had a candy cane pattern on them because I love candy canes! In the Toy section I was so happy to see that they had Breyer horses! I got one of thoes of course. Also in the Toy section I got a plastic lollipop that has squishy toys inside of it. Back in the Christmas section I got a 12 days of socks advent calendar. In the technology section I got a water resistant speaker that was priced a little over $5. My adventure continued when I found Kinder Joy Christmas eggs. I’m excited to see what kind of Christmas themed toys I got. I’m very happy to say that my Five Below haul also included a wooden animal craft kit. In addition to all of those great items I alao got some Sour Patch Kids popcorn! I haven’t tried it yet but I’m looking forward to it. When I try it I will post a review on my blog! Shopping at Five Below was a prefect activity to do on my day off!

Thanks for reading!

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 mom needed to get something there and I was more then happy to come along. I was excited the get an American Girl book about the latest historical character for American Girl. Her name is Claudie and I’m so happy that they had her book in stock. I also got some other awesome things at Barns and Noble including a Barbie book, a Barbie activity set that was on sale and a journal. I also got a short American Girl book as well about the historical character Melody. I wish I went to Barnes and Noble more often because it is full of some of favorite things including toys,craft kits and a sale section. On Thursday I went to the Goodwill. It was a quick trip while my dad shopped at another store but I’m happy with the items I got. My favorite item I got is a Build a Bear plush that was made in Downtown Disney. Other items I was happy to find included a My Little Pony puzzle set, A Barbie DVD set, a paint brush set and a craft kit. I also got two books.

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.

Savers, Dollar Tree,my amazing friend and more!

Hello, my bucket list friends! It’s a time for another what I did this weekend blog post. I did a few fun things this weekend that I’m excited to tell you about. So let’s get to it.

Friday –  After work I went to Savers.  I had a coupon that got me 30% off toys and other items. As always I  was excited to see what I could find. The first thing I added to my cart was a My Little Pony Lite Brite  toy. There were a few Barbie dolls available not a lot but more then I have been seeing. I got two of them. In the plush animal area I got a plush horse from Build a Bear Workshop. Some other things I got were American Girl books, TY Beanie Babies collector guides, an earing set and some wooden Christmas shapes that you can paint or color. I was very happy to have the coupon with me since I got a good amount of items.

Saturday- One thing about the weekends that can be difficult is that you have to try and fit a lot of things into a pretty short amount of time. That’s how Saturday was. However, it did end up being a very good day. I went to Starbucks then my mom and I took the neighbor’s dog for a walk in the park. After that we came home and not long after that I left with my dad to go help with making food for homeless people. It goes without saying but I think it needs to be said. It feels good to help others. Since the shelter we were volunteering at was close to where my amazing friend lives. I went to met her when we were done. We met her at one of my favorite places the Dollar Tree. It was so great to see her! It had been a while since we got to hang out.  I had so much fun shopping and talking to her. At the Dollar Tree I found so many amazing things. Including some My Little Pony blind bag bracelets and toys. As well as some other blind bag toys including some that come in little tea cups. Some other items that I got were a bath bomb with a prize inside, candy, play-doh, and a hair bow. After having a wonderful time shopping with my friend, my dad and I went to Taco Bell. I love Taco Bell it is one of the best fast food places for vegetarians. Going there was a great way to wrap up the day.

Sunday – Sunday was a little different because it did something that it does not do a lot where I live especially lately. It rained! It had been a long time since I’d seen a rainy day. We had some errands to run that day and it was good to get out of the house. I’m happy to say that one of thoes errands included going to Starbucks. We also went grocery shopping and to Walgreens. At Walgreens I got a bath bomb and a clay art kit. It was an overall relaxing day.

It’s safe to say that I had a pretty good weekend! Thanks for reading.
