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!

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.

Hello, my bucket list friends! On Friday I went to Target after work. Target is one of my favorite places to go shopping and I was excited to see what I would find there this time.

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.

Barbie color and cutie reveal!

Hello,my bucket list friends! Yesterday,I opened three Barbie dolls two of them are color reveal dolls and one was a cutie reveal doll. The first doll I opened was from the new mermaid series. I have two others in series. I got this doll yesterday when I was at Safeway. When I opened the doll up her purple hair told me that she was the same as one that I already had. It was disappointing but she’s still a really cool doll. The next color reveal doll was one that I ordered from poshmark. She is in the beach series. I had one doll already in this series. I was very happy when I saw that this doll was different then the doll I already had in that series. This doll had plastic blond hair and a bathing suit with flamingos on it! The third doll I opened was from a new line of dolls called cutie reveal. I also got this doll from Poshmark. There is no water needed to reveal this doll. She comes dressed in a mascot like costume and you simply remove the costume to see the doll. I liked this one a little better then color reveal just because it was a lot easier to reveal and I didn’t need water. Also you know what doll you are getting based on the picture on the package so you can’t accidentally get to of the same doll! Thanks for reading.

A Barbie Easter basket,Dollar Tree, and Savers!

Hello, my bucket list friends! I’m a very happy collector at the moment. In the past few days I’ve managed to add some really great things to my collection. On Thursday I was at the grocery store and I just had to have this Barbie themed Easter basket. I love the puzzle that it comes with. On Friday I  went to the Dollar Tree after work. I got two packages of squishy toys, a container of play-doh that has two colors inside, model magic, canvas and bunny shaped containers. I loved seeing all the Easter items that they had this year. I’m also happy that they are still selling the Jelly Belly sparkling waters. I got one of each flavor. Yesterday, I went to Savers. We went earlier in the day so it was neat and organized. I’m not used to seeing it like that! I was very happy with the items I was able to add to my collection. Some of my favorite finds I got were a Barbie color reveal doll, a Barbie doll book, a TY Beanie Baby bear,two packages of Lisa Frank Easter bubbles, full house books, a Disney mug, and a package of Lisa Frank pencils! I also got this American Girl activity box that comes with lots of cards that have crafts, quizzes and more fun ideas printed on them. I was happy to see that they had more dolls this time. There was not a lot of dolls but there were more then there has been. I hope to find more great items the next time I visit Savers.

I’m falling in love with squishy toys!

Hello, my bucket list friends! One of my favorite hobbies I have is collecting toys. The main toys I collect are Barbie dolls, My Little Pony toys, TY Beanie Babies and Build a Bear plush. However, I often find myself buying toys outside of thoes brands. Lately I’ve been buying squishy toys! This weekend I got three squishy toys. Two of them are these super cute animals that come with names and there are many of them you can collect. The next time I see this brand of squishy toys on display I may just get some more of them. The other squishy toy I got this weekend was from the seasonal section at the grocery store. It’s a big squishy that looks like a marshmallow Peep! I don’t like to eat the peeps candy but I do that their cute design and I have bought other Peeps products in the past like a snow globe. This squishy toy is is a made from a slow rise foam and it is so much fun to play with. Squishy toys are great for stress relief. It’s a good idea to keep one with you if you need a little bit of slef care on the go. LoL!

Kinder Joy eggs Barbie edition

Hello, my bucket list friends! Welcome to a fun light hearted blog post! I believe that I will forever be young at heart! With that being said two of my favorite things are candy and toys and Kinder Joy eggs have both! A while ago I was so happy to see that Kinder had done a collaboration with Barbie. I got two eggs when I first saw them and recently I got three more of them while I was at Safeway. The prizes in the eggs have been awesome! I love the figures and other prizes. I took pictures of four of my prizes below! I highly recommend trying this candy if you never have!
