Another item I found that got me excited was a color your own squishy toys art kit! I had a kit from this same brand before but this kit had different squishy toys in it. Other highlights include a mug from 1986, and a dog purse! Yesterday day after work I started off my weekend by going to Savers. When I got there I headed right to the toy section.

And another weekend gone …..

Hello,my bucket list friends! It’s time to morn the loss of yet another weekend. There are some who say that we should focus of the happy memories and not the loss. For this post I think that’s a great idea! Let’s start by talking about Friday. On Friday we got surprised with some really awesome cookies at my work! I got a confetti cookie it was so happy looking and it was also really yummy! After work I went to the Dollar Tree. I was excited to see that they already had some of their summer items out. My favorite item that I got that day was a pack of summer themed trivia cards. Some of the questions are really easy but some are really interesting. Some other things I got at the Dollar Tree included some squishy toys, a My Little Pony sticker set, and some paint! It was a good way to start the weekend. On Saturday I had my first marketing class through my voice acting school. It was really interesting and I look forward to the other sessions. I also got to go to a store that I love and that store is Michaels. I’m very creative person so I love stores that are filled with art supplies. I got some really fun things at Michaels including two packages of wooden animal shaped ornaments, a wooden pineapple, paint sticks, stickers, and beads shaped like sea animals. However my favorite thing that I bought at Michaels was a TY squishy beanie leppard toy! It is so soft and squishy I love it so much! After shopping we went to Starbucks! I got an iced coffee and a cake pop! Later that day I went back into town and walked on one of my favorite trails. After that I went to 7-Eleven and got a slurpee. That night I a took a bath with bath bombs! On Sunday I went to Starbucks again but the big highlight of the day was going to a restaurant to celebrate my cousin’s birthday! It was a pretty great weekend!

An amazing Goodwill trip!

Hello,my bucket list friends! On Thursday, I went thrift shopping! I had not planned on going on thrift shopping that day but my dad had to get some items from the store next door. As you can probably tell by the title of this post it was a really good day for me at the thrift store! One item that I was really excited about finding was the game pretty,pretty princess. I remember this game from when I was a kid and I have been looking for it when I go thrift shopping. I was so happy when I saw it on the shelf. I haven’t counted all the jewelry but it from what I can tell it’s all there or mostly all there at least. This was a great find! Another great find from this thrift trip was a blanket that had some characters from The Lion King two printed on it. I also got some Tennie Beanies and a Barbie calendar. I also really love the plush purple cat that I got. It’s originally from Build a Bear Workshop and it has a cute little bow on its tail! I wish all thrift shopping trips could be like this.

A Barbie Easter basket,Dollar Tree, and Savers!

Hello, my bucket list friends! I’m a very happy collector at the moment. In the past few days I’ve managed to add some really great things to my collection. On Thursday I was at the grocery store and I just had to have this Barbie themed Easter basket. I love the puzzle that it comes with. On Friday IĀ  went to the Dollar Tree after work. I got two packages of squishy toys, a container of play-doh that has two colors inside, model magic, canvas and bunny shaped containers. I loved seeing all the Easter items that they had this year. I’m also happy that they are still selling the Jelly Belly sparkling waters. I got one of each flavor. Yesterday, I went to Savers. We went earlier in the day so it was neat and organized. I’m not used to seeing it like that! I was very happy with the items I was able to add to my collection. Some of my favorite finds I got were a Barbie color reveal doll, a Barbie doll book, a TY Beanie Baby bear,two packages of Lisa Frank Easter bubbles, full house books, a Disney mug, and a package of Lisa Frank pencils! I also got this American Girl activity box that comes with lots of cards that have crafts, quizzes and more fun ideas printed on them. I was happy to see that they had more dolls this time. There was not a lot of dolls but there were more then there has been. I hope to find more great items the next time I visit Savers.

Thrifting on a Tuesday

Hello,my bucket list friends! It’s no secret that I love to go thrift shopping. I usually go on the weekends because I don’t work however, that’s when most people like to go as well. I decided to go thrift shopping on a week day. Last Tuesday my mom and I went to Savers. Tuesday is senior discount day so it was still crowded but my mom qualified for the discount so that was good. I got a good amount of items like I almost always do when I go to Savers. The items I got on this trip include, a bunch of Discovery Girls magazines, a Barbie book, a My Little Pony play-doh set, a Lion King Keychain, and a Barbie doll. There was not a large selection of dolls I hope there are more the next time I go to Savers. I also got a robot bank art kit. I’m excited to paintĀ  it. Oh I also got a Keychain from Disney’s paradise pier hotel. I stayed in that hotel a long time ago and I was so excited when I saw the Keychain. Thanks for reading about my thrift shopping fun.

I really like the mermaid dolls. I may just have to get more. As for the other things I got, I found a box of build a bear bandages in the dollar section.

Goodwill haul and more!

Hello,my bucket list friends it time for another post about some things I found at the thrift store but it is also time for me to talk about all the random things on my mind. Let’s start with the Goodwill first. I went to the Goodwill on Sunday it wasn’t planned ahead of time we just kind of ended up there. It was a good day for American Girl items I got two activity kits and two books. I really love the American Girl quiz book that I got. I also got a mermaid Barbie doll. It was a good day at Goodwill! As for the other things on my mind let’s start with Vocal Media. I recently published two new posts on Vocal Media. One is a fictional blog about a hair stylist who loves to take pictures and write poems the other is a post about money. Click on the links below if you would like to read them.

Ok…. what should I talk about next? Oh! I’m having a lot of fun posting reels on Instagram! I like posting videos of throwing bath bombs into the bathtub and they actually get a good amount of views! I also love posting animal videos and art videos as well! If you would like to see my reels my Instagram username is summerrockstar.

On Tuesday, I got three Kinder Joy eggs that were Easter themed. I love seeing different themed eggs from Kinder. I wonder what fun theme I will see next.

Thanks so much for reading this post!
