I’m ready for Christmas and so is Target.

Hello,my bucket list friends! Yesterday I went to Target. I was hoping that there would be some great Christmas themed items there. Let me just say that Target did not disappoint! I know there have been issues getting products into stores but Target had a pretty good selection of Christmas items. I got some cute Christmas ornaments including a bird and one that reminds me of a snow globe. In the Dollar section I got a cute polar bear plush (the bear was $3) and an art kit. Target also had a great selection of Christmas treats. I got a mini gingerbread house kit and a peppermint lollipop. I was very happy to see the selection of Christmas themed bath bombs that were available. There were so many great choices. I ended up getting two of them. Of course I had to check out the toy section. I got a Barbie doll that was made for the Barbie movie called Big City Dreams. I need to watch that movie soon! She is absolutely gorgeous and I’m happy to have her in my collection. Another fun item that I got was a play-doh snowman kit. It was a great trip to Target! Thanks for reading!

Weekday Savers trip

Hello, my bucket list friends! Yesterday after work I went to Savers for some evening thrift shopping. I like going to thrift store during the week if I can because it is usually less crowded. On this thrift trip I got two Barbie dolls including one with purple hair, an American Girl craft kit, a Barbie book that still had a necklace included,a Disney World popcorn bucket, and a bag of two beanie babies. I did pretty good in the book department in addition to the Barbie book I mentioned above I got two other Barbie books,some Wish Bone books two American Girl books and a Mary-Kate and Ashley book. I didn’t find any clothes on this thrift trip but I’m happy with the other things I got especially the Disney World popcorn bucket. I was so happy when I saw it on the shelf. This was overall a successful thrift trip.

Dollar Tree, the mall and new shoes!

Hello,my bucket list friends! Happy Sunday! Another weekend is coming to a close. I thought it would be fun to share my weekend adventures with you so here we go! On Friday I watched the new My Little Pony Movie on Netflix. It was a really good movie and I’m excited to see what adventures will be next for my new favorite ponies. I highly recommend checking out this movie. After work on Friday I went to the Dollar Tree. I got some more acrylic paint and other art supplies. I also got this unicorn play set that I had been wanting I also got some Christmas craft items. I know that they get bought up pretty fast so I decided to get them now. I want to do blogmas again this year and Christmas crafts make for great blogmas posts. Yesterday day I went to the mall. My main goal was to get new shoes because I have a ganglion cyst on my foot and if I wear anything that touches it even soft slippers,it hurts when I walk. I found one pair on shoes in my closet that didn’t touch the cyst. However I got these shoes around 2003 or 2004. They are pink platform slides. They are not the most comfortable on my foot so I needed to get something more comfortable that I could wear until I can get the cyst removed. I started my mall adventure at Target. I didn’t find any shoes there but I did get two Barbie dolls including a new color reveal doll and some foam My Little Pony toys. After Target we went to Famous Footwear and that’s where I found a very comfortable pair of Nike slides. I’m so happy that I now have a pair of shoes that won’t hurt my cyst but are also¬† comfortable to walk in. While I was at the mall, I went to Claire’s. I always love shopping their sale section. I bought some really cute earrings and a hair bow. My mom and I also got massages. It was a wonderful mall trip. That evening we had game night!I hope all of you are enjoying your weekends!

Shopping – I’ve been treating myself a lot this month with everything from online shopping to thrift shopping.

Going to the movies! – I finally saw a movie in theaters this month. It’s been so long. I was super excited to go to a theater again. My mom and I saw Jungle Cruise this month. It was a good movie that kept my attention. I look forward to going to more movies soon.

Happy Hollow – last weekend I went to a local zoo called Happy Hollow. It had been a while since I’d been here so I decided to go again. It was a fun day that included seeing many different animals such as an anteater, meerkats, wallabies, a tortoise, and foxes. We also road the carousel and the rollercoaster.

Art kits – I did two art kits this month one was a Melissa and Doug stained glass art kit and the other was a wooden bunny that you color. Both of them were a lot of fun to do.

Friday’s Target haul and a Barbie color reveal doll

Hello, My bucket list friends! On Friday I went to the magical land of Target. The main thing I wanted to get there was those glittery bath bombs with the squishy surprises inside. I love those bath bombs so much. I got a glittery bear and a glittery ice cream cone plus two other bath bombs. In the Dollar section I got some super cute Disney rubber ducks and another water toy. I also got two Barbie dolls one of them being a Barbie color reveal doll. The other one has gorgeous multicolored hair in a beautiful rainbow skirt. When I got home I wanted to see what color reveal doll I got. I bought two dolls from that series before but they turned out to be the same doll. I was really hoping that I’d get a different one this time. Luckily I did! She has yellow hair and black and white clothing. I’m so happy to welcome her to my collection. I wonder what I will get next time I’m shopping at Target.

Goodwill, Savers and an amazing find!

Hello, my bucket list friends! I’m excited to tell you about my latest thrift shopping adventures. Including one item that I’m very happy that I found. On Thursday I went on a quick trip to Goodwill. I I got some great items including a Melissa and Dad craft kit, a Barbie book that still had the stickers in it, and a set of Disney markers that came from the theme parks. I’m excited to use the Melissa and Doug craft kit that I got. I love the wooden heart-shaped beads. On Friday after work I went to Savers. When I walked over to the toy section I saw a large horse toy on the shelf. I wonder if it could be an American girl horse toy because it seemed large enough. I went over and looked at it and sure enough the tag on the leg said American girl. I was so excited! I love finding American Girl products but I was super excited to find this one. I think I’m going to do a photo shoot with my dolls and the horse. My other savers finds include some ’90s Beanie Babies, some Barbie dolls including one with a really awesome hair, a spin art kit, a set of Lisa Frank erasers,and a Christmas plate from the ’70s. I had a lot of fun at Savers and I spent more time there than I thought I did. I wonder what my next big thrift find will be.

Bucket list #294 Go shopping at the Gilroy Outlets

Hello, my bucket list friends! I’m super happy to say that yesterday I crossed another item off my bucket list. The last time I went to the outlets,a lot of the stores were closed. However this time the stores I wanted to visit were open.My mom and I started our outlet adventure with the Disney store outlet. I’ve been to the Disney store before but not the outlet. They had good deals on a lot of items including some items from the theme parks. My favorite thing that I got was a mouse ear headband that was summer themed. After that we went to Claire’s. This location had a pretty large clearance section I enjoyed looking through all the items especially the ones on sale. I was able to find some really great accessories and one of the best curly straws I’ve ever seen in my life! After those two stores we went to go visit the California welcomeCenter again. I’ve been here once before and I love looking through all the travel brochures that they have. I had a lot of fun crossing this item off my list and I hope to go back to the Gilroy outlets sometime.

My latest thrift shopping fun!

Hello, my bucket list friends! Going thrift shopping has quickly become of my favorite hobbies. I’ve been working on building up my beanie baby collection. I had so many when I was a kid and I wish I would have kept them. Anyways I’m also on the lookout for books from American Girl and Mary-kate and Ashley. I’ve been pretty successful with finding items that I’m interested in adding to my collection. I wanted to share my two latest thrift shopping trips with you. The first one was in Saturday to a local thrift store they have very limited hours so I don’t get to go very much. However I did have some time before my shift on Saturday so I was able to go look for some treasures. I found some Mary-Kate and Ashley books as well as an American girl book. I also found it a bag that had some Beanie Babies in it. Some other finds from that thrift shopping trip were a Barbie doll, some stickers and a bag of hair scrunchies. The next thrift shopping trip I wanted to tell you about took place on Tuesday. I had to get some shirts for my new job but of course I had to look for some fun items to add to my collection as well. I was excited to find two wellie wisher dolls from American Girl they had been well played with and needed some TLC but I was still very excited to have found them. I also found some really awesome ’90s Beanie babies to add to my collection. I was really hoping to find some while I was there and I was not disappointed. I also got a pink basket for Easter as well as some books including a Disney trivia book. What are some fun things that you have found while through shopping?

Starting off February with a trip to Savers

Hello, my bucket list friends! On Tuesday, I had the day off so I decided to go to Savers. When I go to Savers I head right to the book section. However since it was senior discount day there was a pretty long line outside. My mom was with me so we were able to get the discount as well. After waiting in line I went to the book section. During this thrift shopping trip, I got books from some of my favorite series such as American Girl and Candy Fairies. In addition to some great books I found two Barbie dolls to add to my collection, some art kits and a Build a Bear Fluttershy. I’ve been trying to collect all the main My Little Pony Build a Bear toys and now I only have one more left to find. At the end of this thrift trip while my mom was in line to pay I went to look at the shoes. When I was looking at the shoes in my size, I saw a pair that really caught my eye. The shoes were covered in pictures of animals! It was a very successful thrift shopping trip. I was so happy that I found more candy fairies book I’ve been looking for those books for a while! I hope all of you are having a wonderful week.
