Caramel Frappuccino Feed

Goodness!

I did not want to walk today as it was so extremely hot. I did though because I needed to get a few groceries to make it through for a few days.  Since my brakes are shot, I certainly couldn't drive to the grocery store!  I picked up several things and some of them were frozen. I carried a cold bag with me so they made it home safely.  I got home and it took a while to cool off and get rested.  I called a friend to see if she wanted to go eat.  She is the one that usaually won't go anywhere. lol  She said she needed to go to the grocery store for her mom and if I'd go with her to the store, she'd go with me to eat.  Deal!  We went to eat and then I went with her to the grocery store.  I would have gotten my groceries while we were out, but she didn't go to my store.  Oh well, I am okay for a few days like I said.  Oh, we also went to the Starbucks drive thru. :p  I got a caramel frappuccino instead of a latte today.  

I helped her put away the groceries at her mom's and then she took me to Family Dollar so I could get a few things I needed.  After that she dropped me home.  I haven't done my workouts and I still need to do those.  I may skip them, but I really shouldn't!  It's cardio day, so I am going to be hot. lol  I sat down and wrote out all my bills. I am broke and I haven't gotten my regular groceries.  Oh well.  Hopefully my Macbook Pro will come before August!  I swear, I'm beginning to wonder!  It still hasn't updated.  It still says, "Info sent to FedEx."  Expedited shipping MY ASS! UGH


New banner, new colors....

I created a new banner for the blog tonight. It's from a picture I took one year on a trip to Myrtle Beach.  I was able to find the Happy Monkey font online and downloaded it to the Macbook.  I used to to create the banner.  I like it. ^_^  I wish I had had it yesterday when I was typing pen pal letters!  

Speaking of pen pal letters, I wrote seven yesterday and mailed them today.  After my walk, workouts, French, etc, I went to the post office.  I had already mailed my letters off, so I was just checking my box.  I'm glad I did as I had five new letters! I also had the receipt for my post office box payment that I paid earlier this month.  After I left the post office, I decided to treat myself to Starbucks since I was out and about.  I was going to get a tall caramel Frappuccino and then I remembered that I had a coupon loaded to my Gold card that would give me a grande size for $3.  I got a grande. :p  As I was pulling out of the drive thru, I got to see the Corgi. <3  He is so cute!

 


Last night at the beach....

Good grief. I just typed up a post and it disappeared when I tried to publish it. I’m going to type this one up in a note app so that if that happens again, I don’t lose all my work! UGH! So, let me see if I can remember what I posted…

So, I am sitting on the balcony and I just finished some delicious Hungry Howie’s pizza. We just got back to the room a little while ago. Where did we go? Well, when we left, we went to Dairy Queen and got some food. We then headed to North Myrtle Beach to go to Tuesday Morning. I absolutely LOVE Tuesday Morning! I got a lot of rolls of individual washi, a plastic jar of craft stuff, and a cool journal with the Eiffel Tower on it and Paris. I really didn’t need another journal, but I couldn’t pass this one up. It was on sale and it was cool! It’s a pretty good size, too.

As I’m sitting here typing this, some dudes on the beach and setting off fireworks and it’s great1 They did it last night too, but they have more tonight! lol I just saw them go running in, the police might be coming. I hope they come back and set off some more!

Okay, so we went to Tuesday Morning and I got goodies. Then we went by a pawn shop that my friend likes and he found a vintage album. After that, we headed to Broadway at the Beach. It’s got shops, rides, restaurants, and all kinds of stuff. It’s huge. We went to a couple of stores that we like and I got Starbucks! ;p There is a Starbucks in there that I’ve never been to. That makes four new ones this trip for my Starbucks tracker. Yay!

I got a caramel Frappuccino since it was so hot. Broadway is all open air with each shop with a separate entrance. After we got in the car at Broaday, I ordered the pizza from Hungry Howie’s. I signed up for their rewards several years back on a trip here, and I had a free medium, two topping pizza. I ordered that and we picked it up on our way back to the room. My half was delicious!

It’s been lightning here since I’ve been writing this. I felt a drop of rain a minute ago and it smells like rain. Maybe that is why the guys went in. I hope they’ll come back out later and shoot off more fireworks! We leave in the morning. We usually don’t get out of the hotel until right at check out time. I might post in the morning before we leave, and I may not. I will probably pack up tonight. We’ll see.

Okay, this actually turned out longer than the post I had already done! :p I’ll leave you with three pictures I took. Two inside and one outside of the Starbucks at Broadway. Nevermind.  I've tried four times.  The wifi here sucks!
