A weekend in Pismo Beach

Hello,my bucket list friends! This weekend I went on an adventure to Pismo Beach and I wanted to share it with all of you. Here we go! My adventure started on Friday when I got off work early. My mom and I headed right to Pismo Beach. My dad was already there. It took over three hours to get there. When we arrived we dropped our things off at the hotel and went to dinner. We went to downtown Pismo Beach and ate at this restaurant called Cool Cats. It’s a fun 50’s themed restaurant with great food. I got this veggie burger that had peppers on it and it was so amazing!! After dinner we went to a souvenir shop across the street. Where I got some great items including snow globe for my collection.On Saturday our first activity was going on a kayaking cave tour. It was fun but some of the caves were hard to go through. I liked seeing all the penicillins while we were kayaking. After that we went to eat lunch. We tried going downtown again but we couldn’t find a place to park. We went to this restaurant called Huckleberry’s. I really liked the french toast that I had there. After lunch we went for a walk on monarch butterfly grove trail. During certain months this area is filled with tons of monarch butterflies. The butterflies are not there in July. However the trail is beautiful and worth taking a walk on. At the beginning of the trail there was a trailer that they were selling souvenirs from. I bought a butterfly pen and a butterfly keychain. After enjoying the trail. My mom and I went to the Goodwill. The Goodwill we went to was very small. However I got some cool books. When we were done shopping we decided to try downtown again. It took a long time to find a parking space but when we did we got a parking space that was right by the pier. We took pictures with the Pismo Beach sign, checked out the playground next to the sign,walked along the pier,I made a pressed penny, and got some taffy. We had one last adventure before going back to the Hotel. We went to Dinosaur Caves park. I’ve been to this park before years ago. This is a great place to get a view of the ocean. It was a fun filled day! The next day we went to Sloco doughnuts. They had some really amazing doughnuts here! I can’t wait for my next adventure.

Dollar Tree and mall adventure 6/21

Hello, my bucket list friends! On Friday I went to the Dollar Tree and Saturday I went to the mall. I got some really great items and I can’t wait to tell you more about it so here we go! On Friday after work I went to my favorite Dollar Tree location. I found so many amazing things including confetti Play-Doh,art kits,a Barbie coloring book and My Little pony stickers. I also got a summer themed cup with an attached drinking straw. I’m excited to play with the confetti Play-Doh I hope to do that today. On Saturday I went to the mall with my friend Amy. I went to Claire’s and got a lot of great things including a necklace that has a little jar of donuts on it,and a hair bow, hair scrunchies,and a bracelet with heart shaped beads. After Claire’s we went to Daiso. This store never fails to have amazingly cute items. Some of my favorite things I got there were stickers, animal shaped erasers,a Mickey mouse towel,and a Disney princess pencil sharpener. Also Amy and I got matching towels that have polar bears on them. After that I went to Build a Bear workshop. They were low on stock so they didn’t have any of the bears that I had in mind to build that day. However they did have this adorable pastel colored cat. I named her June Sunshine and bought a summer shirt for her to wear. After getting some lunch at the food court Amy and I went to Old Navy where I found a great pair of leopard print flip flops and Amy found jeans that fair her perfectly. We ended our day with a trip to Target. I got a bath bomb and some cute items from the dollar section of the store. Some of my favorite items that I got in the dollar section were a set of animal shaped rulers and two cute summer themed animal toys. It was a wonderful two days of shopping fun and I can’t wait to do it again next year.

Hello Summer 2020

Hello my bucket list friends ! When you’re in school they tell you when your summer starts and ends. Since I’m not in school I decided my summer would be from the first day of June to the last day of August. I celebrated the start of summer yesterday by going to CVS and getting this fun set of Mickey Mouse plastic straws that I had been wanting. Then later in the day I got a Slurpee. I used one of my new straws in the Slurpee! It was a perfect way to start the summer! I hope you all have great summers !

Summer fun catch up ! 8/2019

Hello, my bucket list friends ! I’ve been so busy writing the posts about my vacation to Portland . I’ve gotten behind on telling you all about my summer fun so let’s catch up shall we ?

Summer fun catch up ! 8/2019

Ok, so where do I start ? I know I’ll start with going to see the Lion King after I  got back from Portland. If you knew me when I was young you would know how much of a Lion king fan I am. It’s still one of my favorite movies to this day. When I saw the remake last month I was able to pick out some the lines that were different from the original. I enjoyed the remake it’s was very impressive I recommend going to see if you get the chance. I’ve also been using my Yogurt Land gift card that I won. I’ve been having a fun time treating people to yogurt. My friend and I went to one of our favorite books stores and we picked out blind date books for each other. A blind date book is a book that is wrapped up and you don’t know what it is till after you buy it!  Before I left for Portland I had a fun time celebrating the 4th of July I got some great pictures of the Fire Works . I also got to go to Petroglyph  which is a studio where you paint ceramics and I painted a very cute bunny ! On the last day of July I bought a set of my little pony toys their tails turn to rainbow colors when you put them in water. You know how the saying goes time flies when your having fun and that perfectly sums up Summer for me. I think we are pretty much caught up now so enjoy some pictures of my summer fun!

Road trip day one – The Reno adventure

Hello , my bucket list friends ! I’m currently on a great vacation ! I have a lot to write about so I’m going to be doing a few blog posts about this trip and here is the first one .

Road trip day one – the Reno adventure !

This past Friday my mom , my cousin and a friend started off on a road trip to Idaho . We started our trip off very early at about 4:30 am .Our plan was to spend the day in Reno and then go on to Idaho the next day . Before we got to Reno we came across the best rest stop that I have ever been to . There was a beautiful half mile hiking trail around it . It was fun to go hikeing at the rest stop .The good thing about leaving so early was we got to Reno without fighting traffic and we got there in time for breakfast . My mom found a really good breakfast place but unfortunately I couldn’t eat much of it before my stomach was hurting. After breakfast we had to walk to Walgreens to get somethings but the GPS gave us odd directions and we ended up walking down this Street in a bad part of town . It was pretty scary but pretty soon we were at Walgreens . Walgreens had a little souvenir section and I bought a snow globe ,a magnet and a shirt . After Walgreens we went to Circus circus I watched a little bit of the circus show then I went and played in the arcade . I played the same game that I played the last time I was there in 2014 . It’s the classic game where you try to throw balls in to floating bowls . My mom got one of the balls in for me and I got a cute lady bug stuffed animal . After that we all explored circus circus some more and went to one of the gift shops there then we started our hike back to the car . After we made it back to the car we drove to the hotel for some much-needed rest . After everyone had rested up we headed to Virginia City . We got there later in the day so a lot of stuff was closed but we went to the candy store , the popcorn/shaved ice place , and a cute store with a really nice owner and a really cute dog ! After our Virginia City adventure we had dinner at Olive garden and we went back to the hotel for some swimming in the indoor pool before calling it a night .
