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 last day as a preschool teacher plus a trip to Target

Hello, my bucket list friends! Yesterday was the last day of me being a preschool teacher. It was definitely a bittersweet day. I’m happy that I made this decision for myself and my health but every time one of the kids got picked up yesterday I got sad knowing I may not see them again. I got a going away card from my coworkers and boss so that was super nice. I’m still a mix of scared and excited but I got a job at a great company and I can’t wait to start working there. Having a lower stress job will give me the time and energy to focus on my writing and voice acting. Anyways after my last day I went to Target because in my mind a trip to Target is a good way to celebrate anything including the end of my career in childcare. At Target I was happy to see that there were some Christmas things out in the Dollar section. I got two Christmas craft kits. In the Toy section I also got two Barbie color reveal dolls. I’m also really excited about this scalp massager I got. Even though I was tired from my last day I’m glad I went to Target after. I’m proud of myself for giving my career in childcare my best shot and I’m also proud of myself for knowing when to walk away.

My weekend! A massage, Target and more!

Hello,my bucket list friends! It is time for another weekend blog post. The weekend was pretty normal but I still enjoyed it. On Friday after work I did something that I really needed to do. I got a massage! I had a lot of tight muscles due to stress and my poor muscles needed some help. The massage place I go to is in the mall. After my massage was finished I went to Claire’s where they were having a 12 items for 12 dollars sale. It was a great deal. After Claire’s I got a pretzel before going home and taking a bath! On Saturday my parents and I left the house earlier then we normally would because we had a voucher for a free dump run. I know it’s so exciting right ? After the dump we went to Target which is truly exciting for me. I found some great things at Target like I normally do. Some of the things I got were stickers, play-doh, a package of beads and some cute socks. However the thing I was most excited about was this self care themed Barbie doll. I’m all about self care so I thought that was really cool. I’m very happy to have this doll in my collection. After going to Target we went to have lunch at El Pollo Loco. It had been a while since I had been there so I was excited to go. After lunch we went back home and I had a pretty low key day relaxing. I did take a bath with bath bombs of course. On Sunday I had my first in person job interview since I put in my two weeks notice at my current job. After my job interview I went to Starbucks I was in need of an iced coffee. I was also in need of a walk because it was such a beautiful day. So my mom and I went on walk on my favorite local trail. After coming home for a while I went back out to run some errands. My favorite place we went during our errands was Trader Joe’s. I got some chocolate peanut butter candy and chocolate covered expresso beans! Later that night I did some work on the area I’m going to being using for my home recording studio! I’m excited to actually get my voice acting career started. Overall it was a decent weekend thanks for reading!

My wonderful weekend including going to a new Target!

Hello,my bucket list friends! I had a super awesome weekend! This weekend made me feel like I was in my 20s again. My amazing weekend started on Friday when I was on the way to my friend’s house for a two day sleepover.  I decided to stop at a store to get some snacks for our sleepover fun.When my mom pulled in the the shopping center parking lot I saw that the new Target was open! The grand opening was happening on Sunday but they were having a special opening that night. I was so excited when I saw that the Target was open that I called my friend and asked her to come meet me at the Target so she could see how amazing it was. The store was decorated with balloons and I was just so excited to be there. The store was so perfectly organized. I  loved how they had the bath bombs in a very easy to find place. I was very excited to vist the toy section where I got two Barbie dolls including a Barbie color reveal doll. Of course I also had fun in the Dollar section. I got so many amazing items. On the way out we noticed that there was a table of food including a Target cake! The next day my friend and I went to an event at a thrift store that I had never been to before. This thrift store was interesting because it had a bunch of different buildings that had different categories of items. I ended up getting three different items at this event. A Starbucks travel mug, a pair of colorful vans shoes, and a book. After that we went to the Goodwill and I got so many things! Sometimes you find a lot when you go thrifting sometimes you find nothing.  I was very happy that this was one of the times I found a lot. Some of the items I got were a Orange Bird sipper from Disney World, a set of bath bombs, three TY brand toys, some clothes, a Barbie Extra toy, and a My Little Pony travel mug. After all that shopping we were ready for lunch. We went to Chili’s and it was just what we needed. The Chili’s that we went to was in a mall. We decided to walk around the mall for a bit after lunch. As we were walking we saw that a local library had set up it’s own book store. I got three books for only a dollar each! It was a great day for good deals! After the mall we went to Starbucks and the car wash. Going to a car wash is a lot of fun when you are with your friend! After that we went back to her house and we relaxed, ate pasta, and watched a lot of YouTube until it was time to go to bed. When Sunday came around I was surprised as always at how fast the time went by. Before we parted ways we went back to the Target to go to the Starbucks. The Target was so crowded good thing we had done our shopping on Friday night. It was hard to say goodbye to my friend after a wonderful weekend but I had a few things I needed to do before the week began. My parents and I went on our normal Sunday errands. The highlight of our errands was that I  got a bottle of ginger ale and I carried it to the car in my arms like it was my prized possession. Oh and that night The Rookie one of my favorite TV shows came back for another season! It was a really amazing weekend and I miss it so much! I wonder what I’ll do this weekend.

New Barbie color reveal doll and a Target shopping trip!

Hello, my bucket list friends! Yesterday I went on an evening trip to Target. I love going to Target! I was excited to see what fun thinhs I would get this this time! My main reason for going to Target was to get bath bombs. I got three bath bombs. Two of them have prizes inside and the third one is moon shaped and lavender scented. Lavender is one of my favorite scents. I love the bath bomb selection at Target! I also love the sock selection at Target. I got one pair of socks yesterday. I chose a pair that had panda bears on them. I went to check out the Barbie section and I was super happy to see that there was a new series of Barbie color reveal dolls. This series has a rainy day theme. Also while I was in the toy section I got a package of scented Play-Doh. Another cool thing I got was a package of word beads in the arts and crafts area. I also got some food and drinks. I’m excited to do a review on one of the drinks I got. Now let’s talk about today. Since today is a pretty relaxed day,I decided to see what Barbie color reveal doll I got. Since I didn’t have any dolls in this series, I knew I wouldn’t get a doll that I already had. The doll I got is the one with green hair and a green outfit. She is absolutely beautiful! I just love her hair and her outfit! I want to get more dolls in this series but I really don’t like getting doubles since color reveal dolls are on the expensive side. However, I may just get one more and take a chance!
