Work, Christmas lights and shopping fun including Savers

Hello, my bucket list friends! It is that time again! That’s right it is time for another blog post about what I did over the weekend. I’m happy to say that I did go shopping at Savers because it felt like a really long time since I had last been. I also went shopping at one of my favorite local business. I can’t wait to tell you all about it so let’s get to it!  

Friday – I had work on Friday but before work I went to Petco and Starbucks because my cat Cooper needed wet food. The good thing about Cooper needing wet food was that Petco is right next to Starbucks. I love going to Starbucks and it was the perfect way to start my day. This Friday was the day after Thanksgiving it is also known as black Friday. Meaning that it is one of the busiest shopping days of the year. The store got busy at times but it was a pretty normal day overall. After work I walked to the candy store where I got a Pez dispenser and a tube of candy that had a toy monkey on top I also got a can of mineral water from the brand Liquid Death. I got the lime flavor it’s my favorite flavor in that brand. After the candy store I went home and had a normal night at home.

Saturday- I did have work on Saturday. However before work my mom and I went to Starbucks , went on a nice walk at the park and then I went shopping at one of my favorite local toy stores. This is a different toy than the one that’s close to my work. I love this toy store a lot. I was happy to find some fun items on this shopping trip. I got two blind bags that have Breyer horses in them. I also got a Breyer Horse that was not in a blind bag. I was happy to see that the toy store had a lot of fun Christmas items. I got a Snowman ring and a cute chipmunk plush I also got some stickers as well but they weren’t Christmas themed. I was very happy with my little toy store haul. After that I went to work and had a good day working. After work I went to Safeway where I got a cupcake with rings on top. It was a great day!

Sunday – On this day I had the day off. I had one thing that I really wanted to do and that thing was to go shopping at Savers. I love going to Savers but it had been a while since I had gone there. Before Savers I we did make a stop at Starbucks. When we got to Savers I went to the toy section to look for Barbie dolls. There was not a large selection of dolls available however I did end up choosing three dolls including one Barbie that I believe is from the 70’s or 80’s. After that I went to look in some of other parts of the toy section including the plush animals. I wasn’t finding anything thing else that I wanted to add to my collection. Then in the game section I found a Candy Land game that was in a collector’s tin. Candy Land is one of my favorite board games. After that I found some more thing to add to my cart including a Full House book, a Candy Fairies book, three toy horses and a American Girl board game. I went back in looked in the toy section again and I’m glad I did because that is when I found some of the items I mentioned above. I’m happy to say that I got a Build a Bear that is supposed to also work as a speaker. I did not find this bear in the toy section I actually found this bear in a bin of go backs. I asked a nearby employee if the items the the bin where available and I was very happy when I found out that they were. I named my new Build a Bear Musical. I also got a cute sweatshirt from Old Navy. After Savers I got a gift card for a neighbor’s dog because were we going to a birthday party for the dog. The party was a lot of fun I loved seeing a bunch of the neighborhood dogs. After the dog party it was time to start putting up our outdoor Christmas lights. We made a lot of progress and our lights already look amazing. I love all of our candy cane shaped lights. It was a really good weekend!

I hope all of you enjoy your week!

Coffee,crayons,Walgreens  and more

Hello, my bucket list friends and welcome to another weekend blog post !!! This weekend was pretty average but it did have some fun moments. I can’t wait to tell you about it so let’s get to it.

Friday- Friday was a pretty normal day. However I did have a few highlights including getting a visit from my neighbor’s dogs. My favorite part of the day was getting Starbucks before work. I love the Christmas themed cups this year they are so fun. Work went well then I went home and that is how my Friday went.

Saturday- I had work but not until mid afternoon so I had time to do some things before work. The first  thing I did was to print out some Crayola coloring pages and activities. I started doing one of the coloring pages but I didn’t have time to finish it because I had some things to do in town before I went to work. The first thing we did was to go and get coffee at Starbucks of course. Then it was off to our favorite park to walk at. The park was busier than it has been but we still enjoyed our walk. The weather was really nice so I’m guessing that is why there were more people there. After the park we went to Whole foods. I shopped quickly because I needed to be at work soon. My favorite things that I got on my quick shopping trip were a box of one of my favorite fruit snacks that comes with collectible cards. I also got two large candy canes and one of them was strawberry flavored. After that I went to work and it went well. When work was over I went to Walgreens. I need to get conditioner because what I had at home was not working well for my hair. In addition getting conditioner I was excited to go look at the Christmas section again. I ended up getting a pop toy shaped like a mitten and two plush dogs that sing when a button is pressed. I also got some snacks and of course the conditioner. It wasn’t a super exciting day but it was a pretty good day.

Sunday- I had the day off on Sunday. I didn’t go anywhere except for on a walk. However I did have Starbucks delivered to the house. I was really craving it so I decided just to splurge and spend the money to have a delivered. I also got a snowman cookie along with my coffee. Yes, it was expensive to have it delivered but I’m happy I did it. Another thing I did on Sunday was to put up more padding in my studio. I’ve been very slow at getting my voice acting career rolling however I’m happy with the progress that I made yesterday. Another fun thing I did was to watch and play along with an interactive Barbie movie on Netflix. It Was fun to see what would happen with different choices. I kind of want to do it again to see how different I can make it. The first time I tried it I accidentally made a mistake and got sent back to the beginning. However when I tried again I really like the way things turned out. I know Netflix has a few interactive movies and maybe I should try another one.

Thanks for reading my post about this weekend! I hope you all have blessed weeks.

This weekend put me in a Christmas state of mind

Hello, my bucket list friends! Another weekend has gone by so it is time for another post about my weekend. This Post however has a little bit of a theme. I know it’s not even Thanksgiving yet but I’m in a Christmas state of mind! My weekend kind of ended up having a Christmas theme to it. I’m already looking forward to the Christmas fun that is going to be coming my way next month. Without any more delay let’s get to my Christmas themed weekend.

Friday – I had work on Friday but before that I went and got Starbucks. I got one of the Christmas themed cups. Starbucks is also in a Christmas state of mind. After Starbucks I went in to work. I really enjoy my work now so my days are much happier then they were before. I now work at Urban Remedy and they have amazing food. They are worth checking out if your are looking for some healthy and yummy food. After work I went to Walgreens. I had a big project that I was working on and I needed to get some items for it. My church participated in Operation Christmas Child this year. If you have never heard of Operation Christmas Child, Let me give you a quick explanation. Basically you are giving a child a shoebox full of Christmas presents. You chose a gender and age range and then fill the box with items with that in mind. I put together three shoe boxes. I needed to get some more items for the boxes so that was my main reason for going to Walgreens. I also got some items for myself while I was there. The Christmas section at Walgreens was full of fun items. I got a plush reindeer, a gingerbread man toy, and a art kit. I’m happy to say that I got many great items for the shoe boxes. This little shopping trip was a great way to start the weekend.

Saturday – I did have work on Saturday but I did have some time before work to get Starbucks and go for a walk in the park. The park that we have been walking at lately has become one of my favorites because it has a playground it is usually not very busy. While I was at work I tried the Sour Patch Kids popcorn that I got at Five Below. I will make a post reviewing the popcorn but I will say that I did like it. On my lunch break at work I walked to a toy store. I’m so happy that I work with in walking distance to a toy store now. Toy stores are something that definitely go well with Christmastime. This toy store was in a Christmas State of mind right along with me. They were many Christmas items available however the items I ended up getting were not Christmas themed. One of the items I got could be considered a Christmas item because it would make a really good stocking stuffer. It was something that I don’t remember seeing before. It’s called Play Foam Pals. It is a container of play foam with a toy hidden inside. I also got some stickers and two animal shaped erasers. That night after work I opened up the play foam and saw that there was a penguin inside. I’m happy that I went to the toy store on my lunch break because it became the highlight of my day.

Sunday – Sunday was another work day for me. I Started my day just like I did the day before. We got coffee then went on a walk at the same park. After that I went to work and I had a good day. It was a shorter shift so I didn’t have a lunch break. However, after work my mom and I went to Safeway to pick up a few things. Safeway had their Christmas items displayed in different areas of the store. In the frozen food isle I was surprised to see the Barbie Color reveal advent calendar. It looked similar to last year’s advent calendar so I had to look it up and make sure it was a different one. Once I saw that it was I decided to get it. Once I got it down from the top on the freezer I saw that there was a different Barbie advent calendar behind it. It took me a little bit but I decided to get the color reveal advent calendar that I had originally saw. It was truly a good way to end the weekend.

Thank for reading about my weekend! I hope you had a wonderful and that you have beautiful week!

Just another great weekend in California

Hello, my bucket list friends! In my last post I talked about what I did during my weekdays now it is time to talk about what I did during my weekend. Sometimes I include Friday in these posts but since I already covered Friday in the post I just mentioned ( You can read it HERE) I will only be talking about Saturday and Sunday in this post. Without anymore introduction it is time to get to it!

Saturday – Looking through my pictures of what I did this day I remember that I tried a candy that I got at Whole Foods the day before. I’m going to do a separate post reviewing this item but I will say that it was really good. I’m happy to say that on this day I went to Starbucks and then went for a walk in the park with my coffee, my mom and the neighbor’s dog. It was a very beautiful day and I was  happily surprised to see that the park was not busy. I climbed to the top of the playground and then went down the slide. I posted the video of me going down the slide on my Instagram my user name is summerrockstar if you want to see it. After the park I went to CVS. I love that CVS sells Claire’s products. I got a set of three Claire’s bracelets plus a bunch of other great items including a TY plush toy, a magazine about animals, hair bows, and peppermint candy. After my little shopping spree I waited in the car with the dog while my mom bought birdseed at another store in the shoppingcenter. While I was in the car I posted on BE Real. I took a picture of my new TY plush sitting on the dashboard. I was very happy with my Be Real post for the day. After that it was time to head back home. After relaxing at the house for a while, we went to go visit a family member. On the way there we stopped at a store where I got this super cute gingerbread cookie. It was a pretty great day!

Sunday – This day was pretty relaxed overall however I did do a cute mouse suncatcher craft kit and we also went into town to do some errands. I happy to say that yes these errands included Starbucks. When I went to pick up the drinks that I had ordered at Starbucks, I saw that they had accidently made one of the drinks  I had ordered iced instead of hot. Not only were they super cool about remaking it they let me keep the iced one too.  I’m actually drinking that iced one right now as I write this! Our other errands were Petco, Trader Joes and Safeway. At Trader Joes I got a snack that I had never seen before. I can’t wait to try it and do a review on it and at Safeway I got a cupcake that had three butterfly rings on top! It was a pretty easy going day but I enjoyed it.

Thank you for reading! I hope all of you had great weekends!
