Three day weekend fun!!

Hello,my bucket list friends! Last weekend was a three day weekend for a lot of people including me. It was nice to have a extra day. My weekend started on Friday when I got off work early. I went thrift shopping at Savers. While at Savers I got three Barbie dolls to add to my collection. My favorite one is a mermaid doll. I also got a new Build a Bear. Some of my other finds include a Lisa Frank pencil pouch, two Barbie yo-yos,a Disney hat,a charm bracelet, and a pair of fuzzy socks. On Saturday I went on a walk with my mom and the neighbor’s dog. It was nice to get out and walk. Walking is great for stress relief. I also did a sticker art project that I had been wanting to do for a while. It is a project from this American Girl sticker kit I have. Also on Saturday I got Starbucks and went to Walgreens. Walgreens has some Valentines day items out and I ended up buying a tube of mini skateboards and a tube of pencils from the Valentines day section. I also got a bag of my favorite vegan candy. After all that we went to a family gathering. It was so good to see my sister since I don’t see her as nearly as often as I would like to. On Sunday I went to Starbucks again. When I went to pick up my mobile order, I saw that they had some free frappuccinos! I was so excited! I chose the strawberry one. We also went to Pharmaca where I got some lip balm along with some other things. We went to Safeway too where I got some Kinder Joy eggs. I love that they come with toys. Monday was not a work day and I got to see my friend Amy . We got got coffee and went to the Dollar Tree. The Dollar Tree had so many great Valentines day items! It was a great time with a great friend. I love it when I actually get to spend time with friends! On Monday night I took an awesome bath! I used three bath bombs that all had prizes in them. I wish evey Monday was like this one was.

Going to the mall and other weekend fun

Hello,my bucket list friends! Another weekend has come and gone. I thought it would be fun to tell you about my adventures this weekend so here we go! On Friday I went to Dollar Tree. I got a lot of cool items including a lot of Barbie items. I was so happy to see all the Barbie brand items at Dollar Tree. Some of my favorite items I got were two Barbie books,a My little pony calendar,stickers and two craft kits. It was my first time at the Dollar Tree since the price increase. I know it’s unfortunate but I understand it. Even with the price increase I will continue to shop at Dollar Tree! After shopping we went to eat at Panera Bread. I love their vegetable soup! Another thing that happened on Friday was that the American Girl doll I ordered arrived! Her name is Camden. She has beautiful blue eyes and dark hair. I’m very happy to have another American Girl doll. On Saturday my mom and I went to the mall. I went to Claire’s and got some fun jewelry and accessories. I really love this one big hair bow I got. I also got a mermaid bubble bar at Lush and a Barbie Christmas ornament at Hallmark. We also got some much needed massages. The mall had this beautiful arch that you could take pictures with. I love the picture of me under the arch. We also got Starbucks and I got a box of popcorn from Target that has a cute picture of the Target dog on it. It was a great day at the mall. On Sunday I had a hard time getting out of bed due to muscle pain. It was hard to move without my muscles locking up. That evening I went to Starbucks and the grocery store. I brought Camden with me on our errands. It was fun bringing my doll to the store. In addition to food I  got a craft kit. As I walked around the grocery store I could feel my muscles getting tight. I’ve been using a tens unit to help with my muscle pain but unfortunately it hasn’t gone away yet and I’ve had to miss work. Other then the pain I was in it was a pretty good weekend.

Self care weekend

Hello, my bucket list friends! My stress level has be high lately so I decided to make this a self care weekend. Today is Sunday and can officially say that I have a sore throat and that I’m feeling pretty out of it. I’m not surprised because there has been something going around at my work. I’m happy to say though that it wasn’t till last night I started to feel off so I did enjoy my Friday night and Saturday. On Friday evening I did one of my favorite things. I took a bubble bath with two bath bombs. The bath bombs I used were Christmas themed and they both had prizes in them. I also printed out some coloring pages from Crayola on Friday. If you’re looking for some great coloring pages to print. I highly recommend going to Crayola’s website. Yesterday, I continued to do some of my favorite things to help me de-stress. I went to a local thrift store to see what I could find. This thrift store has shorter hours then the big name stores but I have been trying to visit this store more often. I bought a few fun things including a Barbie doll and a Build a Bear reindeer plush. I also got a very cute Coca-Cola polar bear plush. While we were in town we also went to Starbucks for coffee. Coffee is one of my favorite drinks. When we got home my mom and I went on a walk. The weather was perfect for one. Later that evening we went to a family members house for game night! That brings us today. I plan to spend today relaxing and writing another one of my favorite things.

A trip to the Dollar Tree and a art project

Hello, my bucket list friends and happy Sunday. Yesterday I did some shopping at the Dollar Tree. I was excited to see what items they had for Christmas. At the location I went to there were still many boxes of Christmas items that they had not opened yet. However there were some items out and ready ready to be bought. I got a snowman ornament, a light up Christmas tree, stickers and a wooden Christmas tree in the Christmas section. Some of the other items I picked up on this trip are play- doh, a squishy toy and a wooden word to paint. Today was the day I decided to paint the wooden Word. Painting is a very relaxing activity and I’m glad I did it today. I used three different colors to paint the word hello. I love Painting dots when I paint so I did that on this piece. I love the way it turned out and I want to paint the back when the paint dries.

Savers in the morning and more adventures

Hello,my bucket list friends! Yesterday was a pretty busy day but it was mostly the fun kind of busy. We ending up leaving the house earlier then we normally would. After we went to Starbucks we got to Savers a little bit before it opened. There were are few people waiting outside already so I decided to join the line. By the time the store opened,there was a pretty long line of people behind us. As soon as we got in the store there were carts waiting for us. I grabbed one and headed to the back of the store where the toys are. I was excited to see that there was so many beanie babies! I ended up getting four bags that had two beanies each. Also on the same wall there was a bag with two Lion King plush toys in it! I love finding 90s Lion King items. I also got the Lion King sound track. One of my other favorite finds from this trip is an American Girl art studio kit. I also got two pairs of jeans and some Disney key chains. It was a successful thrift trip! After that we had some errands to run including Whole Foods and mailing an item that I sold on Poshmark. We went back to the house to get my neighbor’s dog. We had plans to go to a pumpkin patch with Amy but due to traffic that didn’t end up happening. We ended up going to dog park and taking a walk around the park where the dog park is. Last night I listed some more items on Poshmark. I’m getting more into this reselling thing. Thanking for reading!

Thrift shopping,friends and more!

Hello,my bucket list friends! Well it is Monday again and that means it time for another week of eight hour work days. I managed to do a lot of stuff this weekend so I thought I would write about it. On Friday after work I went and got my second coffee of the day at Starbucks then we took the neighbor’s dog to the dog park. I enjoy going to the dog park as much as the dogs do! I love being in an area filled with a bunch of happy dogs running around! Some of the dogs even come up to you to be petted! It’s a good way to de-stress. On Saturday I started the day off with a trip to the thrift store. I went to a local thrift store that has limited hours so when I get a chance to go I usually do. This thrift store has low prices especially when compared to Goodwill or Savers. Even though this store is on the smaller size I usually find some awesome things. Saturday was no different. I ended up getting three American Girl books, a beanie baby, a brand new craft kit,and Mickey Mouse colored pencils! While I was at the the thrift store I saw someone I went to high school with. We had a great conversation and took some fun pictures. After that my dad and I went to the hardware store. I was happy to see that they had a lot of Christmas stuff out already! They had more Christmas items then they did the last time I was there. I loved the Christmas trees that they had set up. Later that day we went to go remember my great uncle before he is buried out of state next weekend. Then we went to dinner with family. We went to a restaurant that we had been to before but they had remodeled it and it was so beautiful! That brings us to Sunday. I started my Sunday off by helping at Sunday school. The lesson of the day was Noah’s ark and it’s one of my favorites. After church I met Amy for lunch it was so good to see her! Then we went to Trader Joe’s. Getting errands done is much more fun when you have a friend to chat with. That night we went to my uncle’s house and played a board game. There you have it that was my weekend! Thanks for reading!

First October weekend 2021 and my dreams for the future

Hello,my bucket list friends! I’m gonna talk about this again. How is it October right now?? I feel like I need to start planning my blogmas posts before December sneaks up on me! Anyways the first weekend of October for 2021 is officially behind us. I thought it would make a good blog post to not only tell you what I did this weekend but to talk about the goals I’m working towards right now. Without any more delay let’s get to it.

My weekend- Friday was a tipcal work day. When I look at pictures of that day I’m reminded that.I had a peppermint ice cream sandwich that night. I got them from Safeway and they are truly amazing! On Saturday I went to two of my favorite places starbucks and Goodwill. The Goodwill that I went to was not very well stocked. However, I got some official American Girl clothes and some American Girl activity books and a brand new craft kit. I also went to Michael’s and I found some really cute stickers on sale. On Sunday my sister came to visit. We went to lunch at one of my favorite local places. I had some very yummy ravioli. After a very yummy lunch we had to get a few things at the hardware store. I was so happy to see that there were Christmas items in stock already. I got a snowman yard decoration. I can’t wait for Christmas time to finally get here. I also had fun working on the craft kit that I got at the Goodwill. It was a pretty good weekend overall.

My dreams- I consider myself to be a professional day dreamer. I’m always thinking about what I want to accomplish in my lifetime. I know now that I really want to work towards being a freelance writer. I’m working on getting my Fiverr account up and running so I can be a blogger for hire! I’m also going to continue to put articles on Vocal Media! I’m excited to see what I will write next.

Dollar Tree, the mall and new shoes!

Hello,my bucket list friends! Happy Sunday! Another weekend is coming to a close. I thought it would be fun to share my weekend adventures with you so here we go! On Friday I watched the new My Little Pony Movie on Netflix. It was a really good movie and I’m excited to see what adventures will be next for my new favorite ponies. I highly recommend checking out this movie. After work on Friday I went to the Dollar Tree. I got some more acrylic paint and other art supplies. I also got this unicorn play set that I had been wanting I also got some Christmas craft items. I know that they get bought up pretty fast so I decided to get them now. I want to do blogmas again this year and Christmas crafts make for great blogmas posts. Yesterday day I went to the mall. My main goal was to get new shoes because I have a ganglion cyst on my foot and if I wear anything that touches it even soft slippers,it hurts when I walk. I found one pair on shoes in my closet that didn’t touch the cyst. However I got these shoes around 2003 or 2004. They are pink platform slides. They are not the most comfortable on my foot so I needed to get something more comfortable that I could wear until I can get the cyst removed. I started my mall adventure at Target. I didn’t find any shoes there but I did get two Barbie dolls including a new color reveal doll and some foam My Little Pony toys. After Target we went to Famous Footwear and that’s where I found a very comfortable pair of Nike slides. I’m so happy that I now have a pair of shoes that won’t hurt my cyst but are also  comfortable to walk in. While I was at the mall, I went to Claire’s. I always love shopping their sale section. I bought some really cute earrings and a hair bow. My mom and I also got massages. It was a wonderful mall trip. That evening we had game night!I hope all of you are enjoying your weekends!

Weekend highlights

Hello,my bucket list friends! This weekend was pretty great so I thought it would be fun to share it with all of you. I hope all of you had a great weekend as well!

Going to Target – Friday after work I went to Target. I got a lot of fun things including a small Barbie color reveal doll,a Barbie doll that came with a bathtub, shoe liners to wear with my Crocs, a My Little pony coloring book, bath bombs and two art kits.

Bath bombs – I used two bath bombs this weekend. One on Friday night and one on Sunday. The one I used Friday night was one of the ones that had gotten a Target that day. It was a little mermaid themed bath bomb and came with a cute pendent inside it. The bath bomb I used on Sunday was also from Target but I got it on a different shopping trip. It’s was an ice cream cone shaped bath bomb and it had a cute squishy toy hidden inside. This bath bomb was very similar to another bath bomb that I had gotten at Target before except for it was in the shape of a gummy bear.

Art ! – I did one of the art kits that I got at Target. It was make your own necklace kit where you painted a large butterfly. It came with three colors and it was very simple. I enjoyed this fun and quick project.

Succulents – I finally got around to planning the succulents that I already had. I put all three of them in one pot and I like the way they look. I hope this becomes a new hobby for me.

Celebrating mother’s Day – Sunday was mother’s Day and we went up to Napa to celebrate. We had a good lunch at a cute restaurant that had porch swings outside.

Walks – I was able to go on a couple walks this weekend. It’s amazing how something so simple can be so relaxing and enjoyable and healthy.
