Pizza Feed

Late night post!

So, we did go out long enough to eat.  We went to Dairy Queen and hit the drive thru.  We got the chicken strip basket dinners.  It was good.  After we ate, we headed back here! I was hoping we'd go a few places but no, we came right back here.

I decided to get a small walk in and went for my nightly beach walk.  I went further than I usually do.  I walked to the point that I usually go to.  It's one of the hotels we have stayed at before.  There is a park next to it that has a Pokestop.  I go and hit the Pokestop and then head back down the beach to the hotel we are at now.  Instead of coming in, I went on further down the beach to the Springmaid Pier (well, what is left of it!) and walked under it and on the other side for a little bit and then came back.

I am now back in the room relaxing and charging my Fitbit.  I am not sure if I'm going to do anything else tonight.  My friend suggested ordering pizza later. I'm all for that. :p . I'll be glad to eat a few slices.  


We're here!

We got here around 3 and checked in.  An hour after that we were in the room and unpacked.  We had to go on a crazy hunt for drink machines.  We kept trying to get Mountain Dew and it kept giving us Pepsi! :(  Once it gave us Dr. Pepper and then a Sunkist Orange! LOL!  We have a lot of Pepsi now.  Phooey.  I so wanted a Dew.  I'll get one if we go out later!

It's beautiful here.  I haven't taken a lot of pictures because of there being so many people on the beach.  I will take a lot more pictures during the week.  I will share one with you now, though:

I want to get some great shots for phone wallpaper.  We are going to order a pizza and eat that and then see what we are going to do after that.  I'm so ready.  I might post again later tonight, We'll see!  Oh! We stopped in Longs SC and went to the Goodwill there.  I got a cute pair of brand new shorts with the tags still on them and a little notebook.  You know how I am with notebooks. LOL 

My new little crossbody purse was perfect.  I carry a trip journal with me on trips and it fits in there perfectly.  I could probably get my Bujo in there too if I wanted.  We are probably going to order pizza from Pizza Hut as they are having a special deal of a 2 topping pizza for $7.99!  Whoo hoo baby! LOL!


I'm one tired puppy!

So, I got in my walk and came home and relaxed for a bit before doing my workouts.  I was almost done with them when a friend called and wanted me to go somewhere with her.  I wanted to finish my workouts, so I said no.  I got my workout done and then my French and called her back.  She still wanted to go, so I decided to go too.  We went to Martinsville, Virginia which is not very far away for her to go to Belk and look at purses.  She didn't get the one she went for, but she got two others!  I on the other hand didn't go to look at purses and ended up with one.  I absolutely LOVE it.  It's a Lily Bloom.  I've never had one or even seen one before.  They are made from recycled plastic bottles and they have adorable designs.  Mine has cupcakes and coffee! :D  It's brown with colorful cupcakes and coffee cups on it.  The inside is bright green and it's gorgeous.  I'll share a few pictures:

Did I mention that I got it on sale?  Two discounts. Whee! So, after we finally got out of Belk, it took her forever to decide!  We went to Jerry's pizza.  It's a place in Martinsville that I've been to once before a long time ago.  They have remodeled since I went and it's pretty nice.  We shared a pizza and then went by McDonald's for caramel macchiatos.  We were in the drive thru for twenty minutes AFTER we ordered!  We finally got our coffees and headed home.  They were not very good. :(  I was disappointed!

We got back to town and I went to her house for a bit to see Cocoa, her mini Doxie whom I love!  Her son wanted something from Burger King so we rode down there.  While we were out, I got her to run me by Starbucks. LOL I had to get some good coffee to cancel out the bad coffee. :p  I got a tall blonde vanilla latte.  Delicious!  I came home and washed my hair. I'm drying it now and then I'll put my bed linen back on the bed.  I need to play some Pocket Camp as I haven't had a chance since this morning.  


It feels like Sunday!

Yes, all day it's felt like it should be Sunday and not Saturday!  I went for my walk and stopped by the grocery store on the way back.  BIG MISTAKE.  They were packed.  I only got four things, but it took a long time to check out.  I should have known better this close to a holiday!  Oh well, I got what I needed and headed home.  I came home and relaxed a bit and then did today's workouts.  I got those done and had time to relax before fixing lunch.

For dinner, my friend carried us to Aunt Millie's in Milton, NC.  It was the first time we'd been since that time we went and both our pizzas were gross.  They more than made up for it this time.  It was delicious and I have a lot left over for tomorrow. ^__^  On the way back into town, he stopped at McDonald's and got me a caramel macchiato.  YAY!  I went with him to the dollar store to pick up a few things he needed.  He got me a couple of dollar items while we were in there.  I have left over pizza and goodies in the house. ^_^

Tomorrow is Christmas eve.  It seems like it was just the beginning of the month.  I'll be glad when all this holiday crap is over with!  I want things to get back to normal!  I'm not sure if I'll go to my friend's house tomorrow or on Christmas day to give them their gifts.  I called today but no one answered and I didn't get a call back.  Yes, the same friend from yesterday!  Phooey!  

I am going to get off the computer after posting this. I've already done my French lesson. I want to play more Pocket Camp.  Yes, I'm addicted, but it's so cute!  I love the animals, especially Goldie and Rosie.  They are my favorites. ^_^


Coffee, coffee, and more coffee!

I started out the day with coffee.  I had breakfast and then went for my walk.  I didn't do my usual today.  Where I would usually turn around and head back, I kept going.  I stopped by the post office but I didn't have any letters.  I walked down to the Crossing and then walked around there for a bit until my friend came and picked me up.  He wanted to run to Reidsville today and I told him I'd go if I got in my walk first.  He went to a couple of pawn shops and we both went into a thrift store.  I didn't find anything I wanted.  We ate at Carmela's pizza and it was delicious as usual.

After eating, we headed to McDonald's and I got a Caramel macchiato and drank it on the way home.  I came home and did my workouts.  I am currently drying a load of clothes.  I've already done my French lesson for today.  I just have a few more things I need to do online, and then I am going to relax and play Pocket Camp on my Android.  It's a cute and fun game and I forgot to log in yesterday so I'm pretty sure I lost my streak.  Phooey!


Saturday sabotage!

Okay, so maybe not that serious.  I got up and got ready for my walk today.  I heard a loud noise outside and thought to myself, what the heck was that!?  I looked out and didn't see anything so I turned around and then I noticed that the light was off.  I thought I had turned it on.  I looked around and noticed that none of my displays were lit.  Yup, something knocked the power out!

I went for my walk and hoped that it would be on when I got back. I wanted to get home, drink a cup of coffee and relax before doing my workouts.  The power was still out!  I texted a friend and he suggested we go eat since my power was out.  I couldn't fix coffee or do my workouts without power, so I said, yes!  We went to Reidsville, NC to a pizza place called Carmela's.  They have delicious pizza.  Afterwards, we wanted ice cream and I wanted coffee! LOL!  We went to the McDonald's.  He got ice cream and he got me one of their caramel macchiatos.  It wasn't bad!  

We came back to town and I came in and the lights were back. Yay!  I put my leftover pizza in the fridge and came to my room and did my workouts.  I got those done and then read some on Not Always Right.  I ate my leftovers for dinner and then did my NaNo for today. I got over 2000 words today and I am now past the 40,000 mark!  Yay!  All I have left to do is my French lesson on Duolingo and then I'm going to read with my Kindle until bed. ^_^


Argh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So, I sat down to work on NaNo and I'm just not feeling it today.  I am in serious need of some writing time.  I did go back last night and wrote a lot more to what I had.  I'm over 11,000 words now.  I just don't know how to start today. I'm sort of at an impasse.  I will eventually get to it and get my word count for today done.  I'm just going to make myself.  I made myself a cup of coffee and drank it while re-reading yesterday's stuff.  I needed to read it to be able to continue today.  Today's writing will be part of that scene.  I just need to figure out how to start.

I was doing okay and about ready to start when a friend texted me.  Luckily, that didn't take too long.  He has something he needs to do tonight and wanted me to text him at a certain time so he could do it.  I set the alarm on my phone for that.  That will give me plenty of time to write.  Now, I just need to do that.  Ahh, can you tell I'm procrastinating?

I walked today and did my workouts.  It was warmer today than it's been the last few days.  Tomorrow it's supposed to be in the 50's again.  Today it was in the 70's!  The sun came out while I was walking too.  They are calling for rain tomorrow. I just hope it decides to wait until before or after my walk!  I can hope, right? :p

Anyway, I guess I better wrap this up.  I need to get to NaNo.  I just need a kick in the pants to get going.  If I hadn't gone to Starbucks yesterday, I would SO go tonight.  I am planning on going and writing at least one night during NaNo.  OH! Since I knew I would hit 10,000 words last night, I treated myself to a pizza from Pizza Hut.  I got a hand tossed pizza with white sauce and pepperoni.  I have half of it left for tonight's dinner and I've been resisting the temptation of it all day! LOL!  I should tell myself if I don't write at least 1700 words tonight, no pizza! :P

 


Sunday suprises

So, I texted a friend to see if he wanted to do anything.  My car started acting up badly yesterday and I was afraid to drive it today.  I figured he'd say, nah, I don't want to do anything.  Instead, he said we could go to Aunt Millie's to eat.  Aunt Millie's has the best damn pizza.  It's so good!  I am glad I asked! LOL  So, I'm just waiting on him.  As soon as he comes, I'm going to go with him to Aunt Millie's and have some delicious pizza.  I might post again later.  I've already done today's workouts and finished today's French lesson. ^_^


Friday evening....

Wow, what a day.  I walked on the beach this morning and got splashed by some waves.  I had to come back and put my shorts out to dry. lol  Later, I went walking to 17.  I went to Bargain Beachwear to get a few postcards.  I also got a keychain.  I headed further down 17 and then turned and headed back to Ocean Boulevard.  I got part of the way back and then took my shoes off and walked on the beach back to the hotel.  I came back and relaxed on the balcony a bit.  My friend and I went to North Myrtle Beach.  We went to Tuesday Morning and I got three more rolls of the washi that I liked so much.  I also found some other goodies.  A package of Halloween stickers and some craft tiny clothespins.  After leaving there, we headed to King's Famous Pizza for dinner.  That was delicious as always!

Since we were right near the Goodwill, we went there.  I got a MB shirt and a package of full page labels.  I can use them to make my own stickers at home. YAY!  There were twenty left in the box.  I'm pretty sure when you buy a small package of them, they come ten to the pack and they are over $10 a pack!  Crazy!  These were $1 Yes!  We went to the Dollar General that is next door to the Goodwill and got a few things and then headed back down the strip.  There was another Starbucks that I hadn't been to yet, so he swung by there and I went in and got myself a latte. :D  He wanted ice cream, so he stopped at Burky's.  We've eaten at Burky's before.  It's pretty good.  He got ice cream and then we headed down to the road where Market Common was.  We had seen the sign before and looked for it but didn't find it.  We found it tonight!  It was late, so most everything was closed, but at least we found it. :P  It has a lot of high end stores, it seems.

So we then headed back towards the room.  We saw a miniature golf place that looked pretty cool.  We went and one sign said they closed at 10:30, the sign on the building said 11.  The lady said they closed at 10!  It was about 9:32 by then, so we didn't get to play.  Phooey! We headed back here and I did my workouts.  I'm posting this and then I'm going to take my nightly beach walk.  I'm really tired, but I still want to at least walk a little bit. ^_^ 


It can't be Friday already!?!

If I was at home, it would still be Tuesday! LOL  Time goes faster at the beach, I swear! So, last night we went walked to the Dairy Queen to eat dinner.  I usually get the chicken basket, but I haven't had one of their burgers in forever so I got a bacon burger.  It was good, too!  We walked back to the room.  I sat on the balcony for a bit and then came in and did my workouts.  I did a few things in my room and then headed out for a late night beach walk.  I walked a bit longer than I planned, but it was nice out there.  I PoGo'd while I was walking.  I actually caught a new one but I can't remember at the moment which one.  That was cool!  It's always nice to catch new ones.

After my walk, I came back here and settled in for the night.  I am not sure what my plans are for today.  I think the only thing we decided last night was to go up to North Myrtle to King's Famous Pizza for dinner.  It's a favorite place to eat while we are here.  I'm looking forward to that.   Their food is delicious.  It's more of a local favorite, so it's even better than a chain or another place that may be similar.  If we get up there before the Tuesday Morning store closes, I want to get some more of the washi I bought the other day.  They had a roll of pretty washi that I got a few rolls of.  I wish I had gotten all they had, but I didn't.  There is something he wanted that he didn't pick up either, so the odds are good I'll get to go back.  Hopefully both the things we want are still there!
