my weekend highlights Hot Wheels color reveal , a Starbucks food review, voting,and a vegan burrito

Hello, my bucket list friends! It is time for another blog post where I talk about my weekend. This post does include a food review and a toy review. However overall it was a pretty normal weekend. I did work both weekend days but I like my new job so it’s all good. without anymore introduction let’s get to it.

Friday – After work on Friday night, I went to Safeway because I was low on food at home. While I was there I was happily surprised. I saw that they had Hot Wheels color reveal on sale for a really good price. I had only gotten Barbie color reveal before so I thought that this would be fun to try. The rest of the night I just relaxed at home I didn’t stay up very late becuse I had work the next day.

Saturday – I had to be into work at noon but before that I had some things I wanted to do. The first thing was going to Starbucks. I’m so happy that peppermint mochas are back for the season! I also thought it would be fun to do a food review on one of their seasonal items. I had ordered the item I wanted to review the first day it was available but they had already sold out for the day by the time I ordered it. The item I’m talking about is the new chocolate pistachio swirl. After trying it on Saturday, I can see why it sold out quickly. It was so good. It was warm, comforting and flavorful. Definitely a must try if you are a fan of chocolate and nuts together. I highly recommend giving this new item a try. After a wonderful trip to Starbucks, my mom and I went to vote. I like that we have a location near by that let’s us vote early so we can avoid the election day crowds. We walked right in with no wait, voted , and went on our way after getting I voted stickers of course. I put my sticker on top of my Starbucks cup. When all that was finished we still had some time before I had to be at work. We went on a walk around the area where my work is. We stopped at a near by toy store where I got a cute duck toy. I don’t think I had ever seen a duck toy that looked like this one. It was super cute and unique so I was excited to buy it, As I write this my duck toy is still in my purse. I don’t know how long I’ll keep it in there for but I do like having it with me. I enjoyed my day at work it was slow sometimes but overall it was a good day. That evening we went to dinner at a neighbor’s house. it was nice to relax,eat, and talk with some great people.

Sunday- I’m going to be honest Sunday started out a little on the stressful side. My phone was not working for some reason and it was not receiving the messages that my work was sending me. Also my coffee order did not go through even though my phone said it did, I had to have my mom drop me off at work before I could get the coffee and of course there was a lot off traffic. I replaced the order for the coffee and then my mom dropped it off to me at work. I got the same thing I did the day before a peppermint mocha and a chocolate pistachio swirl. Yes, I liked Starbucks’s new seasonal baked good so munch that I got it two days in a row. For my lunch I ordered a Vegan burrito from Uber Eats and had it delivered. I don’t get food delivered that often but after looking at all the choices on Uber Eats I may just have to order from them again. After work I went to Safeway again I got a cute scratch off lottery ticket, some yummy food and I also got another color reveal toy but this time I got a Barbie color reveal doll. I had only bought two dolls from the series that this doll was in but they turned out to both be the same one so I thought I would try again by buying a third doll. That night I decided to see not only what doll I got but I also decided to open my first Hot Wheels color reveal toys. One thing I really like about Hot Wheels color reveal is that there are two cars in each container. It was very easy to see what cars I got. I simply took them out of their bags and put them both into the container. Then I put them in the sink and turned the water on. I was happy with the cars I got. However, I did get the same doll three times so I did bother to put my 3rd of the same doll in water. I don’t think I’ll take another chance with this series unless I find it on sale for a really good price.

Thanks for reading about my adventures this weekend!

Strawberry funnel cake Frappuccino review

Hello, my bucket list friends! It’s time for food review! When I heard about the new Strawberry funnel cake Frappuccino at Starbucks I new I just had to try it! I’m a huge strawberry fan so I was excited to try this strawberry treat. Before I get into my review I want to say that I did order this drink with almond milk instead of the default whole milk. When I first took a sip of this drink it tasted like a maple flavor. It took me a second to realize that flavor was funnel cake part of the drink. There was strawberry flavor through out the drink but the maple flavor was the strongest flavor that I tasted. I did enjoy this drink and I finished all of it. It was definitely worth trying but the Carmel Frappuccino is still my favorite!

Tie – Dye Frappuccino !!

Hello, my bucket list friends ! A lot of you know that I’m a big fan of Starbucks. when I saw that they had come out with a fun fruit flavored drink, I just had to try it ! I’m excited to tell you all about it so let’s go !

Tie – Dye Frappuccino !!

This story starts last week , when I was just scrolling through Instagram. I came across a post from Starbucks announcing their new limited time drink called the Tie РDye Frappuccino. I got excited and I knew I just had to try it before it ran out. I had work later that afternoon, I figured that I would just leave early for work and go to the Starbucks near by. My friend wanted to join me on this Tie РDye Frappuccino quest so she came and picked me up. Then we headed off to Starbucks! I was a little worried that they may have sold out already because this new colorful drink was being written about on news websites! It turned out that there was no need to worry because there was no line and plenty of Tie РDye Frappuccinos left to go around. When our drinks were ready I was not disappointed ! They looked very beautiful. The only down side is that they turned to all yellow pretty quickly but hey yellow is a happy color!Now, on to the taste . The Tie РDye Frappuccino  had a bold fruity flavor. It tasted like a shake plus it was topped with whipped cream! I really enjoyed it but if your more of a coffee or chocolate fan I would skip this one.

Starbucks Cherry Mocha review

Hello, my bucket list friends today I tried a drink from Starbucks that I’ve never had before. It’s called a cherry Mocha and I’m excited to share my thoughts about it with all of you. Here we go !

 

Starbucks Cherry Mocha review

I go to Starbucks quite a lot and I had seen the cherry mocha advertised there and it looked really good. I have been sticking with my regular order lately but today I mixed it up and ordered the cherry mocha. The cherry mocha is topped with whipped cream and sprinkles. I have to say it is a very yummy drink it tastes like you’re drinking chocolate covered cherries. This drink is very sweet and it’s not something that I would order every time but I would for sure order it again. To sum it all up this is a sweet and very yummy drink that is perfect if you are in the mood to satisfy your sweet tooth. If your’re a lover of sweet flavored coffee drinks give this one a try .
