Caramel Macchiato Feed

Hmmm.....

So, I finally got my pen pal letters written today! I'll try to mail them out tomorrow. I went by Starbucks and brought home a drink.  I asked for a Cascara latte as I usually get it.  It wasn't right.  I'm not sure what I got, but it had a cinnamon flavor to it.  It was very strange!  The receipt doesn't say cascara latte either.  It has "cacmlatte" I thought maybe a caramel macchiato, but they don't taste like cinnamon!  I still don't know what I got. lol

 


Hoo boy!

So, I decided I wanted to do something totally different with my bedroom.  I wanted to move my bed to a different spot.  I moved a bunch of stuff in my room, and then moved my bed.  I didn't like how it fit in the spot I had picked.  It was a bit too big for the spot and it hung out a little bit in front of the window.  I didn't like that, so I moved it back!  It took a lot longer than it should have.  I did get the areas behind some of the furniture cleaned up though!  These pieces are hardly ever moved, so it was nice to get back there and clean those up.  I dusted and swept the entire corner.  Everything is back in place now and I'm tired!  I usually eat dinner at 8pm.  I just finished it about five minutes ago!  

Earlier today, I went with a couple of friends to Starbucks to get the bogof on the Caramel Macchiato deal.  I used my new tumbler and I love it!  It was BUSY in there.  I saw two of the regulars that I know from the old location.  My friend had an errand to run and we went and did that and then went back to Starbucks to the drive thru.  My friend's mom and son wanted Starbucks too! LOL  We got them theirs and took it to them.

I went home and fixed lunch as it was time to eat.  I relaxed and did some stuff around the house and then did my workouts.  It was later than usual, but they got done!  I was just watching television and trying to figure out how I wanted to move my room around.  I did that and as I said before, I moved it back! LOL

I am going to watch some Unsolved Mysteries and relax until bedtime.  I hope to get a good night's sleep!


Why am I awake?

Yeah, it's 7:36 am and I'm awake.  I didn't get to bed until almost 3 am too.  Oh well, it's a beautiful day and I can sit here and type a blog post and look at the beautiful ocean.  It's absolutely gorgeous again today.  Yesterday was pretty too.  We got out in the afternoon and went to eat.  Then we hit a bunch of thrift stores.  I found something in several of them.  I also was able to get to a Starbucks and get a caramel macchiato.  Yum!  Sadly, they didn't have the cascara latte.  

I had a free pizza from Hungry Howies, so we stopped by there on the way back to the room.  I ate half last night and I'm going to finish the rest in a little bit.  I forgot to order pepperoni. Oh NO!  I got a plain old cheese pizza.  Oh well, it's still good.  Oh! I forgot, we did go to a Dollar General and got some food, snacks, and water to have in the room.  We definitely needed some snacks. :p

We took a late night walk on the beach last night.  We didn't get started until after midnight. It was nice and peaceful.  I collected fifty more pounds of shells.  LOL  Not that many, but a lot! 

So, I'm going to sit here and enjoy this beautiful view and relax.  I wish I hadn't woken up so early, but I am at the beach.  No need to sleep my day away!  


Beach trip memories

Okay, so on Thursday morning, I got up at 6:30.  Our plan was to be on the road by 7.  My friend was running behind so it was about 8:30 when we finally got going.  We had breakfast from Hardee's.  He picked it up on the way and we ate in the car at my house before heading out.

We didn't stop until we got to Rockingham North Carolina. There is a Shell gas station there that also has a convenience store.  We always stop here to get gas, use the restroom, and get a snack.  I got a water and a Reese's.  Yum!  We headed on and got to our hotel at North Myrtle Beach around 1 pm.  We were able to check it immediately and went to our room.  I was a nice little room on the fifth floor.  We unpacked and then decided to order pizza.  An hour later, no pizza.  We called and then said, "It was just coming out of the oven."  After several other excuses.  We cancelled it and ordered from somewhere else.  That actually came and we ate.  I had mine on the balcony so I could enjoy the ocean while eating.

That evening, we went to Dollar Tree. I was able to get three packs of mini washi. :)  Also, there was a Starbucks across the street from the shopping center we were at, so I got myself a caramel macchiato. :D  We also went to a Goodwill and I got a really cool package of stickers and rub ons.  There were a LOT of them in there and I paid 6.99 for them.  There was some great stuff in there.  I'll do  a picture post tomorrow and show all the goodies.

We walked on the beach for a bit that night and then crashed not long after.  Friday morning, we got a late start and we wanted breakfast, so we went to a restaurant called Eggs Up Grill.  It was pretty good!  We went and got some snacks for the room at a Dollar General and then went back to the room.  We took ourselves out to the beach and set up an umbrella on the beach.  We spent about two hours on the beach.  I took a lot of pictures!  

That evening, we went to go to a Sonic that we had enjoyed last year.  Unfortunately it was closed.  Torn completely down and a car wash was in it's place!  We then decided to check out Red Robin but they were packed.  Golden Corral was the same way, so we looked up another Sonic on the GPS and went there.  We ordered and about 45 minutes later, we had no food!  We tracked down one of the car hops and she went to check.  It was 'wrong' and they had to re-make part of it but the other part had been sitting.  We asked to just cancel the order and get a refund.  They came out with the refund and the food.  They had re-made everything fresh.  We ate and then went to the Dairy Queen at Myrtle to get some ice cream.  We got that and then headed back to the room for the night. We walked on the beach too.

Saturday, we got up in time to make it to Golden Corral while they still had breakfast out.  It was right at the time they were switching to lunch, but I was still able to get eggs, bacon, and hash browns. Yay!  I also had a couple of their delicious yeast rolls and some cotton candy. LOL!  What a combo, eh?  After breakfast, we went by the Goodwill again.  I was able to get a nice water bottle (stainless and insulated!) for .99!  We got back to the room and I decided to walk. My friend stayed at the room as he planned to go on the beach.

I walked out to 17 and walked across the highway to a Bargain Beachwear.  I got a shirt, a key chain, a shell bracelet and a little present for my friend back home.  I walked down 17 and went into a Tuesday Morning.  I got a lot of discounted Smash journal stuff for less than $10!  I'll include that in tomorrow's picture post.  I then walked on to the Dollar Tree and got three more packs of that thin washi.  I also got a water.  I was going to get Starbucks, but I decided to just head back to the room.

I went back onto Ocean Boulevard and walked back to the hotel that way.  I spent balcony time and relaxed a bit. When my friend was ready to go to dinner, we headed out and decided on King's Famous pizza.  We've eaten here on a previous trip.  The food and the service were terrific!  He got spaghetti and I got my own little pepperoni pizza.  Dinner was delicious.  We drove up 17 all the way to Little River and then headed back.  We got some ice cream at the Sonic at NMB and then went to the room.

I walked on the beach by myself.  I didn't stay out long though as I was really tired from my walk earlier and I wanted to get most everything packed up since we would be leaving the next day.

Sunday started with me waking up way too early!  I finished my packing and then waited for my friend to get going.  We finally got checked out and then went to Bojangles for breakfast.  We stopped once more before leaving the beach.  We stopped at a gas station in Myrtle that we usually hit going out.  After filling up, we went in to use the restroom and he got a soda and a candy bar. I got a coffee and a candy bar.  

Speaking of coffee!  The hotel didn't have a coffee maker in the room, but luckily, the lobby had a nice coffee maker and fresh coffee brewed all the time.  I had some delicious coffee at the beach!  I also got to play Pokemon Go every day, too!

We stopped in Rockingham on the way home at the Sandwich Hut.  He got more gas, snacks, and took a bathroom break.  We then headed home.  It was too short of a trip, but it was nice. I'll do a picture post of some of my goodies tomorrow!


More letters!

No, I didn't go to the post office and get more letters, yet!  I did sit down and write a stack of letters today.  I have one more to do and then I'll have them all done.  Since I had so many, I decided to type them.  I prefer handwriting, but with 12 letters, I knew my hand would give out.  I didn't want to just write some and type others.  To be fair to all my pals, I just typed them all!  I figured that would be the best way to do it.  I got a book of stamps today so I can mail the letters tomorrow.

I went to Starbucks to get a drink and bring it home to sip on while writing my letters.  Again, when I didn't plan to stay, one of my two favorite spots was open. Figures! Oh well!  I got my drink and came home and enjoyed it.  It lasted until after all the letters were done.  The last letter that I need to do is  a new pal.  I always send new pals a 'new pal' letter that is typed and include a small handwritten letter in it.  I'll do that later so that it can go out with the other letters.  This is a new international pen pal and I've used all my international stamps. Oops!  I'll probably just put regular stamps on it to make it go.

In other news, I ordered a cute little mini messenger bag.  I've been waiting all weekend for the tracking to update.  It finally did today and it's at the post office.  That means it should be delivered tomorrow! YAY!  I found it when looking at different things on Amazon. It was only $10 and I had just gotten a $5 gift card for Amazon so I bought it.  I can't wait to see it.  It's pretty small according to the description.  I'll post pictures tomorrow.

Okay, I'm out of here.  I need to do a few more things and then I need to write that last pen pal.  I also want to work on my bullet journal.  See you tomorrow! :)
