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!

Work, Christmas lights and shopping fun including Savers

Hello, my bucket list friends! It is that time again! That’s right it is time for another blog post about what I did over the weekend. I’m happy to say that I did go shopping at Savers because it felt like a really long time since I had last been. I also went shopping at one of my favorite local business. I can’t wait to tell you all about it so let’s get to it!  

Friday – I had work on Friday but before work I went to Petco and Starbucks because my cat Cooper needed wet food. The good thing about Cooper needing wet food was that Petco is right next to Starbucks. I love going to Starbucks and it was the perfect way to start my day. This Friday was the day after Thanksgiving it is also known as black Friday. Meaning that it is one of the busiest shopping days of the year. The store got busy at times but it was a pretty normal day overall. After work I walked to the candy store where I got a Pez dispenser and a tube of candy that had a toy monkey on top I also got a can of mineral water from the brand Liquid Death. I got the lime flavor it’s my favorite flavor in that brand. After the candy store I went home and had a normal night at home.

Saturday- I did have work on Saturday. However before work my mom and I went to Starbucks , went on a nice walk at the park and then I went shopping at one of my favorite local toy stores. This is a different toy than the one that’s close to my work. I love this toy store a lot. I was happy to find some fun items on this shopping trip. I got two blind bags that have Breyer horses in them. I also got a Breyer Horse that was not in a blind bag. I was happy to see that the toy store had a lot of fun Christmas items. I got a Snowman ring and a cute chipmunk plush I also got some stickers as well but they weren’t Christmas themed. I was very happy with my little toy store haul. After that I went to work and had a good day working. After work I went to Safeway where I got a cupcake with rings on top. It was a great day!

Sunday – On this day I had the day off. I had one thing that I really wanted to do and that thing was to go shopping at Savers. I love going to Savers but it had been a while since I had gone there. Before Savers I we did make a stop at Starbucks. When we got to Savers I went to the toy section to look for Barbie dolls. There was not a large selection of dolls available however I did end up choosing three dolls including one Barbie that I believe is from the 70’s or 80’s. After that I went to look in some of other parts of the toy section including the plush animals. I wasn’t finding anything thing else that I wanted to add to my collection. Then in the game section I found a Candy Land game that was in a collector’s tin. Candy Land is one of my favorite board games. After that I found some more thing to add to my cart including a Full House book, a Candy Fairies book, three toy horses and a American Girl board game. I went back in looked in the toy section again and I’m glad I did because that is when I found some of the items I mentioned above. I’m happy to say that I got a Build a Bear that is supposed to also work as a speaker. I did not find this bear in the toy section I actually found this bear in a bin of go backs. I asked a nearby employee if the items the the bin where available and I was very happy when I found out that they were. I named my new Build a Bear Musical. I also got a cute sweatshirt from Old Navy. After Savers I got a gift card for a neighbor’s dog because were we going to a birthday party for the dog. The party was a lot of fun I loved seeing a bunch of the neighborhood dogs. After the dog party it was time to start putting up our outdoor Christmas lights. We made a lot of progress and our lights already look amazing. I love all of our candy cane shaped lights. It was a really good weekend!

I hope all of you enjoy your week!

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!

Barns and Noble, Goodwill and Walgreens

Hello,my bucket list friends! This week I went on some fun after work shopping trips that I thought I would share with you. The first one I went to was Barnes and Noble. 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. Yesterday, I went to Walgreens and I got a wall art craft kit, my favorite vegan candy, two Barbie surprise toys, and some headphones! Thanks for reading. I hope you all a had good week!
