A target run and Barbie color reveal foam !

Hello, my bucket list friends! Yesterday after work I went to Target. I got some great items including two Barbie color reveal dolls,a craft kit, and two bath bombs. I’m super excited about one of the dolls I got because it is one of the new foam color reveal dolls. I was really hoping that Target would have this new line. I was so happy when I saw it on the shelf. I also got some Zevia fizzy apple soda. It was a very successful Target run! Today I opened the Barbie color reveal foam set. This set contained much more than the regular color reveal dolls. I was a little confused at first about how the foam reveal set worked. I was able to figure it out though and I’m really happy with the results. I love the doll’s pink and green hair and watermelon dress. There are two other dolls in this series I don’t know if I will get them due to price but it was definitely worth getting one. I also really like the dolphin water toy that came with this set.

A weekend in Pismo Beach

Hello,my bucket list friends! This weekend I went on an adventure to Pismo Beach and I wanted to share it with all of you. Here we go! My adventure started on Friday when I got off work early. My mom and I headed right to Pismo Beach. My dad was already there. It took over three hours to get there. When we arrived we dropped our things off at the hotel and went to dinner. We went to downtown Pismo Beach and ate at this restaurant called Cool Cats. It’s a fun 50’s themed restaurant with great food. I got this veggie burger that had peppers on it and it was so amazing!! After dinner we went to a souvenir shop across the street. Where I got some great items including snow globe for my collection.On Saturday our first activity was going on a kayaking cave tour. It was fun but some of the caves were hard to go through. I liked seeing all the penicillins while we were kayaking. After that we went to eat lunch. We tried going downtown again but we couldn’t find a place to park. We went to this restaurant called Huckleberry’s. I really liked the french toast that I had there. After lunch we went for a walk on monarch butterfly grove trail. During certain months this area is filled with tons of monarch butterflies. The butterflies are not there in July. However the trail is beautiful and worth taking a walk on. At the beginning of the trail there was a trailer that they were selling souvenirs from. I bought a butterfly pen and a butterfly keychain. After enjoying the trail. My mom and I went to the Goodwill. The Goodwill we went to was very small. However I got some cool books. When we were done shopping we decided to try downtown again. It took a long time to find a parking space but when we did we got a parking space that was right by the pier. We took pictures with the Pismo Beach sign, checked out the playground next to the sign,walked along the pier,I made a pressed penny, and got some taffy. We had one last adventure before going back to the Hotel. We went to Dinosaur Caves park. I’ve been to this park before years ago. This is a great place to get a view of the ocean. It was a fun filled day! The next day we went to Sloco doughnuts. They had some really amazing doughnuts here! I can’t wait for my next adventure.

A trip to the beach and a trip to Goodwill

Hello,my bucket list friends! My favorite season is in full swing. The summer fun keeps on coming. I have hit a few bumps in the road during this summer mainly I hurt a muscle in my leg and had to stay off of it for most of last weekend and that was not fun. However last Tuesday after work I went to the beach. I haven’t been to the beach in a while and I really wanted to go. My mom and I plus the neighbor’s dog went on a little beach adventure. It felt so good to walk on the beach and put my feet in the water. I can’t remember the last time I’ve been to the beach but this trip more than made up for it. I took a lot of great pictures and just had a really good time overall. The dog had a great time playing with other dogs on the beach. I had a lot smiles on my face that evening. The next day I went to the Goodwill while my dad went shopping at the store next door. I got some great items to add to my collection including a Rainbow Dash backpack, some TY toys,a Disney popcorn bucket,a Disney picture friend and some Crayola markers. I know it can be hard sometimes but planning fun things on weekdays can have a positive impact on your mental health.

Art kits – I’ve done a few art kits this month. My favorite was the spin art kit where you used a spinning top to spread the colors around. I also did a paint your own magnet set and a painting dinosaur bank kit.

Barbie color reveal – I’ve revealed two dolls this month. Including one from a newer line. She has plastic hair with no wig or hair extensions which is different from the other dolls I’ve gotten. I really like this line of Barbie color reveal and I hope to get more.

Dollar Tree and mall adventure 6/21

Hello, my bucket list friends! On Friday I went to the Dollar Tree and Saturday I went to the mall. I got some really great items and I can’t wait to tell you more about it so here we go! On Friday after work I went to my favorite Dollar Tree location. I found so many amazing things including confetti Play-Doh,art kits,a Barbie coloring book and My Little pony stickers. I also got a summer themed cup with an attached drinking straw. I’m excited to play with the confetti Play-Doh I hope to do that today. On Saturday I went to the mall with my friend Amy. I went to Claire’s and got a lot of great things including a necklace that has a little jar of donuts on it,and a hair bow, hair scrunchies,and a bracelet with heart shaped beads. After Claire’s we went to Daiso. This store never fails to have amazingly cute items. Some of my favorite things I got there were stickers, animal shaped erasers,a Mickey mouse towel,and a Disney princess pencil sharpener. Also Amy and I got matching towels that have polar bears on them. After that I went to Build a Bear workshop. They were low on stock so they didn’t have any of the bears that I had in mind to build that day. However they did have this adorable pastel colored cat. I named her June Sunshine and bought a summer shirt for her to wear. After getting some lunch at the food court Amy and I went to Old Navy where I found a great pair of leopard print flip flops and Amy found jeans that fair her perfectly. We ended our day with a trip to Target. I got a bath bomb and some cute items from the dollar section of the store. Some of my favorite items that I got in the dollar section were a set of animal shaped rulers and two cute summer themed animal toys. It was a wonderful two days of shopping fun and I can’t wait to do it again next year.

Utah adventure part four and wrap up!

Hello,my bucket list friends! Welcome to the fourth and final part of my Utah adventure! On the last day of our vacation we went to explore a church called the Cathedral of the Madeleine. It was so beautiful. I took so many pictures. It was simply beautiful inside and outside of the church. After exploring the church we went to an antique mall it was my first time going to one because I always thought that they were to expensive. Turns out I was wrong. They had some great items at great prices. There we also expensive items as well but the were plenty of great things in my price range that I was excited to add to my collection. I need to explore more antique malls. After all that exploring it was time for some lunch. We went to this restaurant called Red iguana. It was highly recommended. I’m glad we went there. The food was amazing. Plus they had a giant iguana statue out in front of the restaurant that was really cool to see. And that pretty much sums up our last day in Utah. This vacation was absolutely amazing! My favorite things were probably the zoo, the aviary, and the Park City museum. I’m glad we went to Salt Lake City. It was a lot of fun to explore.

Utah adventure part three

Hello,my bucket list friends! It’s time for part three of my Utah adventure. On the next day of our trip,we went to the Tracy aviary. This was one of my favorite places we visited. There was so many amazing birds to look at. Some of my favorites included flamingos, owls, and vultures. One of my favorite things there was that you could buy food to feed the ducks and swans. One duck had babies and it was so fun to watch them. We also saw a bird show. I can now officially say that the Vulture is now my new favorite bird. One of my other aviary highlights was climbing up onto this big log to take a picture. I really like the way that the picture turned out. After the aviary we walked around the park where the aviary was. We found a free art museum in the park. We had some time before our Uber arrived so we went to check it out. There was a quilting exhibit that was fun to see. When we left the park we went to the Utah state capital building. It’s a very beautiful building that has a lot to see. After the capital we went to a souvenir shop across the street. Of course I was able to find some things there that I just had to have. After all that adventure, we went back to the City Creek Center for food. We ate at the same restaurant that we had before. It was another wonderful day of vacation. The next day we decided to explore Park City. The first thing we did in Park City was to go to the Park City museum. You enter the museum through the gift shop I bought some souvenirs before we went to see the exhibits. I really enjoyed this museum a lot. They had exhibits on mining,skiing,and more. I would definitely revisit this museum if I was ever back in Park City. After the museum, we walked around town and went to a bookstore and a art gallery. For our next adventure we went to a ski resort. During the summer the resort has rides that you can do such as the chair lift, a coaster, and a slide that you ride down on roller boards. We decided to do the zipline and the slide with the roller boards. The slide was a little bit scary but overall fun and the zipline was fast but I really enjoyed it. After adventure in Park City we went back to Salt Lake City to do some thrift shopping. We went to a Goodwill and at first it didn’t seem like I was going to find much but I ended up finding some things I was really happy about. I found a Barbie book, a Build-A-Bear puppy, a wishbone dog plush, and some Barbie DVDs. Thanks for reading this part of my adventure.
