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!

My little weekday Goodwill haul

Hello,my bucket list friends! On Wednesday after work I went to my favorite local Goodwill location. I didn’t get a lot of items on this trip but I’m pretty excited about one of the items that I got. One of the first items that I selected was TY plush dog I also got some TY toys that came in fast food meals. In the book section I found a horse and pony sticker book that still had some unused stickers. Now, for the item that I’m most excited about. I was so happy that they had an American Girl game at the Goodwill! It is a game about making wishes and as a professional day dreamer that is a perfect game for me. Thanks for reading this short post!

Wednesday evening Goodwill trip

Hello, my bucket list friends! Yesterday after work I went on a quick trip to Goodwill because my dad needed to go to the store next door. I never know what I’m going to find when I go to Goodwill. I always wonder what I will add to my collection. This time I got a TY plush , two art kits, an American Girl building block set, and a Barbie doll. The Barbie doll and one of the art kits were from Target. I love how the Goodwill gets items from Target. There were a few Barbies to choose from. I’m really happy with the one I chose because she comes with a lot of accessories. As for the American Girl building set, it was a used item, that looked like it had been well played with. In the box were pieces from Lego sets, and not all the pieces were there but for the price I’m pretty happy with it. Overall I’m happy with my midweek thrift shopping haul.

I got a new American Girl doll this weekend! Plus other adventures

Hello,my bucket list friends! It is time for another what I did this weekend blog post. I have some fun stuff to talk about so let’s get to it!

Friday- on Friday after work I went to the paradise that is Target. As always I found some amazing things that I just had to have. I got three bath bombs, a Barbie doll, a craft kit,socks and more! I wanted to get a another Barbie color reveal doll but I was too worried about getting the same one that I already had. However, I really like the doll I did end up getting. A trip to Target is a good way to start the weekend!

Saturday- On the first official day of the weekend, I did one my favorite things. I went thrift shopping. This time I went to a local thrift store. At first I wasn’t finding much however that turned around and I got some fun items. My three favorite things I got are a Barbie arts and crafts book, a TY plush animal, and a goldfish snack container. After the thrift store we went to Safeway. I got food for the week but I also got some cool Jelly hair ties to use as bracelets, some Ice Breaker mints and a loofah sponge. Later on that day I went on a walk go see my neighbor’s horse and pony. It had be a while since I had last seen them. It was good to see them again and I enjoyed giving them carrots!

Sunday- As you may have guessed by now, Sunday is the day I got my new American Girl doll. The story on how are got her is interesting because I didn’t just go and buy her. I actually won her! On Sunday I volunteered at the Firemen’s BBQ a local fundraiser that that is done yearly. One of my favorite parts of the the event is the raffle. Many items are in the raffle every year. Last year there was an American Girl doll that I really wanted but I didn’t win her. However, this year I was very happy to see that there was another doll in the raffle this year. There were also some other items I was interested in and I’m happy to say I also got a large unicorn paint set and a gift card to a restaurant. However, the thing I was most excited about was the American Girl doll. I was so happy to hear my name called! I named her Clementine and I’m very happy to have her in my collection!

Thanks for reading about my weekend! I hope all of you have a good week.

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!

My new Build a Bear friend

Hello, my bucket list friends! Yesterday, I went to Build a Bear Workshop after work. It had been a while since I had made a new friend at Build a Bear. I really wanted want to welcome a new bear into my collection. I had looked on Build a Bear’s website before I walked into the store. I had a few ideas for what plush I wanted to choose but I had not decided for sure. There were a lot of great plush animals to choose from. At first I wanted to get the Crayola Bear, but I ended up choosing the rainbow sparkle bear that has cute sparkly paws. After stuffing my new bear I went to look for the perfect outfit for her. After looking around for a little while I chose a two piece outfit that had a daisy on the shirt. When it came time to name my new friend, I hadn’t chosen a name already but I found the perfect one for her. I named my new friend Daisy Rainbow. I love how bright and colorful she is and her outfit is super cute! Going to Build a Bear Workshop was the perfect way to start my weekend. I don’t think it matters how old I get, I will still love going to Build a Bear Workshop. Thanks for reading!

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.

More Barbie color reveal and more instacart

Hello, my bucket list friends! I ordered a good amount of Barbie color reveal dolls on Poshmark. I got two more of them on Thursday. One was from the beach series the other was from the older mermaid series. The first doll I opened was from the beach series. I already had two dolls in this series but I’m happy to say that I didn’t get a double.  The doll I got had a similar hair style to mine and she’s over all just a really cool doll. The 2nd doll was from the older mermaid color reveal series. I had two  dolls from this series already and I’m happy to say that I did not get a double. This doll had a rainbow theme I love her hair and her necklace. I also did another instacart order that evening. I ordered from Walmart again. I got food and other things I needed but I also got two more Barbie dolls. One of the dolls is a pasta chef. I think that is the only kind of chef that I could possibly be lol! I really like using instacart I’ve only used it a few times but I think I’ll be using it again for sure.
