Four day weekend adventures!

Hello, my bucket list friends!! This is one  of thoes weekend wrap up posts but it’s a little different because it was a four day weekend for me. The big highlight of my weekend was a day trip to Big Sur on Sunday but I also went to Savers, Target and Starbucks. I’m excited to tell you all about it so, let’s get to it!

Friday- I know I always start my weekend posts with Friday after work but in this case I had the whole day off. I went to Starbucks and the doctor’s office for a work physical but the big highlight of the day was going to Savers! I had a coupon for clothes and accessories. I got some shirts and a new swim top. I also two Equestria Girl dolls, Two Disneyland lanyards and some TY Beanie Babies. I also went on a walk over to where this pony lives and we gave him carrots. It was a good start to my four days off!

Saturday- on Saturday I went to Target after going to Starbucks of course. At Target my main goal was to get bath bombs. I got a jar of bath bombs that all had prizes in them. I also got another bath bomb that lights up! Some of the other things I got at Target include sunglasses,  socks and fan that has bubbles with it. The night I took a bath with bath bombs of course.

Sunday- Sunday was a day filled with adventure. My mom and I went on a day trip to Big Sur. We started our day by taking a tour of the Point Sur light Station. It was very windy but also very beautiful. It was a very interesting tour and yes, they had a gift shop. I got some cool souvenires there including a bookmark and a keychain. Other adventures include going to see McWay falls and a quick vist to Phifer Big Sur state park. We also went on this walk that a had a beautiful view of the ocean. The are so many beautiful things to see in the Big Sur area but it does get very crowded. However I would recommend exploring this area.

Monday- On the fourth day of my four day weekend, I got to spend the day with my friend and yes we went to Starbucks and we also went to one of our favorite restaurants!

It was a pretty good four day weekend!

Two more thrift shopping adventures

Hello, my bucket list friends. Yesterday and the day before I went thrift shopping. I found some great items and I’m excited to tell you more about it so here we go. On Thursday I went to my favorite local Goodwill location. I was so happy when I saw this Barbie ornament from the 90s. It was still in the original box. 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. I was happy to see that there were a good amount of dolls to chose from. I ended up getting three Barbie dolls. My favorite doll I got is pearl beach barbie. she still had her super cute earrings on and her blue bathing suit too! I also got a lot of Barbie movies. It looked like a whole collection of Barbie movies had been donated. I kept finding ones that I wanted to add to my collection. Some of the other things I got were two American Girl books, a bag of Disney Parks buttons ,a flip fllop pin, and new ear buds! Thank you for reading about my thrift shopping adventures!

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 road trip, Bucket list #245 and an Alice Cooper concert

Hello, my bucket list friends! I had a really wonderful weekend! I went on a mini road about a four hour drive away. The main reason for this road trip was to go see an Alice Cooper concert. I bought the tickets kind of last minute so the seats I got weren’t great but they were good enough and that’s good enough for me. My mom and I left on our weekend adventure on Friday when I got off of work. Before we got to our hotel, we stopped at five below. I’m a huge fan of discount stores but there is not a Five Below near me. I was excited that I had a chance to go here again. I got Barbie and My Little Pony toys here as well as some art supplies. I hope one of these stores opens close to me one of these days. After shopping at Five Below we went to Chili’s for dinner before going to the hotel. The next day was the day of the concert but we did have some time before then. I didn’t realize it before but as I was looking up things to do that day, I discovered that there was a Goodwill outlet in the same town where we were staying in. It was on my bucket list to go to the outlet so we decided to go check it out. It was not as big as I thought it would be and there was not as much stuff as I had imagined. However, I found some pretty great items. Some of my favorite items where, a Mary-Kate and Ashley brand hat, a cup with a Mickey Mouse pattern on it, two books that came with stickers, and a Disney button. It was an interesting experience. It was definitely very different from shopping at a regular Goodwill store. At the outlet you had to dig to find things. Epically the clothes and media such as books.  The prices here were the best part. Our total was under five dollars! It felt so good to cross another item off my bucket list. After my bucket list adventure we went to explore the mission San Louis Obispo de tolosa. We had a little bit of time before our tour started so we went to the gift shop. I got some nice souvenires there. It was a beautiful day to explore the mission. There was so much to see, like a well an oven, and bells. If you get a chance this mission is worth exploring. Plus there is also a museum inside. After exploring the mission we went to Whole Foods for lunch. After that we went back to the hotel to rest before the concert. The concert was at this amphitheater that was part of a winery. It was a very pretty venue. Before the show I waited in a very long line to get a t-shirt and hat but it was so worth it! I have a few Alice Cooper shirts but I hadn’t gotten a new one in a while. The show its self was amazing as always. I’ve been to a good amount of Alice Cooper shows and it’s always exciting! I loved singing along to some of my favorite songs like Escape, Poison, Bed of Nails, and School’s Out! I wish I would have been closer to the stage but I plan on getting a better seat the next time I go to one of his shows. However his show is always amazing no matter where I’m sitting! I plan on going to another show of his before the year is over. The next day it was time to head back home. We made a few stops before we officially got back home. Two of the places we stopped where Starbucks (as always) and the Madonna Inn. Outside of the Madonna Inn there was a really cool cow art piece that we took pictures with. It was a really awesome weekend.

Goodbye bubbles, a trip to the Goodwill and Easter fun

Hello, my bucket list friends! Another weekend has left us. Before we move on from it I wanted to share my adventures this weekend with all of you. I had one big event planned this weekend and that was the bubble run. I was excited to do the bubble run for the third time. It was a rainy and windy day and they kept pushing back the start start time. There were people who had earlier start times that had already done the race but unfortunately for us they ended up canceling the race for safety reasons. I was very disappointed but I did get to see my friends so that was good. After we left the race we made a stop at Starbucks and then we went home. Afer being at home for a little bit, I went shopping at the Goodwill. I wanted to do something fun after being disappointed with the run being canceled. At the Goodwill I found two amazing Barbie items. One is a helicopter and the other is a is car that opens up but I haven’t figured how to open it yet LOL! I also got three bath bombs, a plush dog purse, a Minnie Mouse watter bottle and more. After the Goodwill, I went to the Habit and got a coffee shake! I love their coffee shakes. It was a pretty alright day even if it didn’t go as planned. The next day was Easter Sunday I started the day by going to church I had the perfect Easter dress that I got at Savers. Later in the day I went my cousins house, we had a lot of amazing food and we also did an egg hunt. I still love doing egg hunts ! I’ll probably still be doing egg hunts when I’m 50!

Thanks for reading about my weekend!

Tuesday’s Savers trip :)

Hello, my bucket list friends! On Tuesday I went to Savers with my mom. Tuesday is senior discount day at my local Savers. It is a good day to vist because my mom can get 30% off. The doll section at my Savers has gotten a little better lately and I ended up getting four dolls on Tuesday. One of my favorite finds from this trip was a tin box that was from Tokyo Disney. I love the art on the front of it. Another one of my favorite finds from this thrifting adventure was 102 Dalmatians book that came with posters. I remember when this movie came out so it was a really cool thing to find. I did good with books in general on this thrift trip. I got some American Girl books and some other interesting books. I also got this really nice painting set. It was a successful thrift shopping adventure!
