Busy Friday...

So, I got in my walk today and it was nice out there.  It was really windy, but other than that, it was warm and nice.  I came home from my walk and had some coffee and was thinking of taking a nap.  Then, I realized that I had planned to run to the mall to pick up a wallet I'd seen over there before.  It was on sale for half price, so I went over and got it.  It's  BOC brand.  I'd never seen this brand before I saw it last month in Belk.  They have some cute stuff. It's a cell phone wristlet, but the pocket for the is way too small for my phone, so I am using it for my re-usable Starbucks sleeve.  The sleeve is grey and it matches the wallet. See:

By the way, I removed the strap so it isn't a wristlet now. :p I quite like it.  The white polka dotted thing in the background is a cool zip up binder I found at a local Goodwill. This is the inside:

I can't find any evidence of tags, so I'm thinking it might have been handmade. I absolutely love it.  It's so pretty!  I got one other goodie at the Goodwill, well... I got more goodies, but these are the ones I wanted to show you.  I got this cool stencil:

I thought it would be cool to use in my bullet journal! It was a mere fifty cents, so I bought it.  The other things I got were a plastic snowman, a tin with Jack o lanterns on it, some blank business card sheets, a mini coffee cup, and a Myrtle Beach t-shirt. LOL  I get back from the beach and buy a MB shirt at Goodwill!

My friend and I went to Eden, N.C. today to eat and walk.  We ended up eating and then going to Goodwill.  Walking wasn't done. lol  It's okay. I'd already gotten in my regular walk.  I also did my workouts so I'm all good.  Now, I plan to relax a bit before bed. I am still waiting on Fingerhut to ship my Fitbit!  They have a down payment for first time people and I did that yesterday, but they wait until it clears before shipping.  I understand why they do that, but I wish they could just send mine on.  I can't wait to see how I like it.


Friday again...

So, yeah, it's Friday and a brand new month too.  I walked today and then came home and went to the gas station.  I got gas and then went to Family Dollar to get a few essentials.  I then went to Food Lion and bought way too many groceries. :p  I do have plenty of goodies though.  The granola bars I usually buy were on sale AND they started stocking the store brand version of them!  I got some of the regular ones and got some of the store brand ones. If they are just as good, I'll get those.  They were 1.50.  Not bad at all! I just hope they taste the same or close.

I just now did my stretching.  I wasn't really putting it off, I just have been so busy.   After groceries, I came home and fixed lunch after putting away all those groceries.  My store had water on sale, but they didn't have any.  I went to another location of this grocery store and they didn't have any on the shelf either.  I asked, and they had some!  They brought out a pallet of them and I got five.  They were 24 packs for 1.99. BUT  They were the special 28 bottle packs.  So, I got twenty extra bottles of water by buying five cases.  Yay!  While I waited for them to bring some out, I saw that their brand apple juice was on sale for .95.  I got two of those, too!  I love apple juice.  It's one of those things I love to have in the house but never think of when I'm in the store.

After leaving there, I ran over to Office Max to get way expensive printer ink!  I also picked up a box of their brand blue ball point pens.  I got a box some time ago and I absolutely LOVE these pens. I figured while I was there, I'd grab another box  They write so nicely.  I left there and was really close to Starbucks, but I didn't go.  I just came on home!  I did some things here and then it was time for dinner.  I ordered Chinese and went to CVS on the way.  I got some holiday cards and a few other things and then picked up my food.  I loooove tofu so that is what I got.  They fix it so delicious there!  I've been wanting some of their food for awhile  

I wrote out and paid all my bills.  After those and getting the things I needed, I'm totally broke.  Oh well.  I have plenty of groceries and I've had my one eat out meal for this month.  I'm good!  I also ordered my journal for 2018.  Every year I get a Moleskine for my journal for the year. I get a daily one that I use and it's Peanuts.  This  will be my fifth one.  The first year was a small one, the last three were the larger ones that are daily.  The first one was white, then there was another white one, the year after that was blue, this years is yellow and next years is orange/reddish.  I don't know why they keep changing the colors.  Oh well.  They are cute and I love Snoopy. ^_^

I'm not sleeping well at all lately, so I'm hoping to sleep well tonight.  Fingers crossed!


I need to stay out of Target! :P

Since I was interrupted on my trip to Target the other night, I went again today.  I got two cute Halloween washi tapes.  One of pumpkins and one of little ghosties!  So cute!  I also got a stand up pencil case, a pink 'make up' bag, a cute little milk bottle witha  jack o lantern on it and a marked down lunch bag.  I thought it would be a cute bag to carry my bujo in.  It doesn't look all that big, but it is! Here is the inside with my stuff:

20171005_193346

I have my bujo in there, the new stand up pencil case, and a few other things and there is still plenty of room!  Here is a picture of the outside. I am using the picture from the Target site as mine was too dark.

Here is my horrible dark picture!

20171005_193329

It's really cute and handy.  I can also use it as a lunch bag if I want. It was originally $9.99 but it was marked down to $2.98.  I couldn't pass it up!

I also got a latte in the Target Starbucks while I was there. :P

Earlier today I had to go to Kmart to pick up a prescription.  I saw this cutie when I was walking out.  I put my prescription in my car and went back to purchase him. I had $4 in points that I didn't know I had, so instead of $4.99 he was only $1.99.  I love his little curly stem!

That was my day in pictures.  I hope you enjoyed. ^_^


OMG am I tired!

I decided to walk to the Pavilion / Sky Wheel area today.  It was overcast so I knew it wouldn't be horribly hot.  Unfortunately, it started to rain!  I got wet, too!  I went in the Gay Dolphin and looked around a bit. I meant to go to I Love Sugar, but I forgot! I went to the Starbucks past the Sky Wheel area and sat down for a bit.  I found two Starbucks gift cards that I didn't have so I got those. :p  I texted my friend and asked if he wanted to come get me on the way to shop.  He did.  I walked to 17 so I could get a good spot for him to pick me up.  I did that and he did.  We went to a couple of Dollar Tree stores, we also went to Tuesday Morning.   I found too much stuff in there!  We ate at Five Guys Burgers and Fries.  Yummy!  

We went to the Goodwill at North Myrtle Beach too.  I got him to carry me by the Starbucks at North Myrtle too.  I was able to get four of the fall leaf gift cards.  She let me have them without loading them. Yay!  I also was able to get a coffee passport. YAY! :D  I was so happy.  I haven't found any stickers down here, but I have my passport. ^___^

We are back at the room and my phone is charging.  It got down to abou 44% while we were out there.  I am so tired.  I still have to do my workouts tonight, too.  Plus, talk my daily or nightly, beach walk.  I might have to rest a while before that.  It's not raining anymore.  It's still overcast, but it's not too bad.  It feels pretty nice out here on the balcony.  I am going to relax here for a while and then go in and have some coffee. 


Hello again from Myrtle Beach.

Yay, I actually slept well last night.  This would be a first night I've slept well in a long time, too.  It was nice.  I probably could have slept longer, but I'm at the beach.  I can sleep more at home! Plus, it's fun doing early morning blog posts.  I certainly don't do that at home. :P

I'm waiting for the coffee maker to brew my coffee.  I dearly miss my Keurig! I would already be drinking a cup by now! It's almost done, so I will have it shortly.  The forecast for today was for 80% rain. I expected to look out this morning and see an overcast sky.  Nope, it's sunny.  Yes, there are some clouds, but it's certainly not raining!

Coffee is now done and delicious. I went and looked out and now it's a lot more overcast, but the sun is still trying to peek through.  I was thinking of walking to the Pavilion area today, but I think I'll do it tomorrow when there is no chance of rain.  I don't want to get stuck in a downpour.

I'd like to fix a snack, but my friend is still asleep.  The microwave might wake him up.  I have a few things in my room I can eat.  I have some granola bars which is what I usually eat at home for breakfast.  They are the Nature Valley Sweet and Salty nut bars in almond.  Delicious!

I'm not sure what our plans are for today.  I think we were going to try and get to the thrift stores we missed yesterday.  My favorite Goodwill down here is the one at North Myrtle and we haven't made it there yet.  I always find something good in that one.  I love that particular one.  I'd love to hit Broadway at the Beach too, but if it's raining, he probably won't want to! I guess I'll update later on what we do end up doing!


Busy Thursday!

I went and did all my first of the month shopping.  I got groceries, and some other things I needed.  I went to Target and got some things from the Dollar spot and I found a new wallet.  It's really cute and it's funtional.  I love it.  Here is a link to the same one on Target's site:

Wallet  

They had the black, the bronze, and the blue in stock at the store.  I kept going back and forth between the black and the blue.  I finally decided on the blue.  I really like it.  It's very well made and it was a good price too!  In the Dollar spot, I found a cute little 5 page sticker book and three rolls of washi.  One is colorful paperclips and two (the same) are polka dots.  Of course, since I was in Target and they have a Starbucks, I went to Starbucks. :P  I should have waited as I plan to go to the new Starbucks location when it's open tomorrow.  Oh well, you can never have too much Starbucks. :P

I went to Family Dollar to get a few essentials, and I found some cute sticky notes and a magnetic graph notepad in the back to school section.  The sticky notes are a two pack.  One is polka dots and one is blue with rainbow and the words Dream Big.  Both are cute!  The little graph lined notepad has "Notes" on it.

I went back out later to pick up a few things I needed at the grocery store.  I stopped by CVS and found some of the Softlips cube marked down to .99 each.  I also found some orange flavored louzenges.  They were marked down to .52 and then were in cute little reusable plastic containers.  I'll reuse those for office supplies. I was about to go to check out when I checked this one aisle where they something sell random things.  They had some fitness leggings!  They were only $9.99 a pair.  I found a pair that are predominately grey with blue accents.  They are pretty nice.  I figured for the price, they couldn't be too bad.  I tried them on when I got home and they fit fine.  I can also use more workout clothes!

Speaking of working out.  I got home a little bit after I usually start to do my workouts.  I decided to do them when I got home.  I was done before time to fix my lunch.  I did that and then that is when I went to CVS, Food Lion, and Family Dollar. Oh.. and I got gas in my car too!

So, tomorrow, my only plan is to do my workouts and go to the new Starbucks. :D  I want to see how they have it set up.  I also want to see how much more seating there is.  Did I mention this new Starbucks has a drive thru? Whee! :P


Car troubles on a Sunday....

Well, technically I've been having car troubles for over two years now.  They are just worse today.  I had to run to the grocery store to pick up a few items that I needed.  It took awhile, but I finally got my car to start.  It's acting up worse than usual, so it didn't want to drive down to the grocery store. I got it there, though.  I debated on leaving it running, but I was afraid it would overheat. I turned it off and went in and got my groceries.  In line, I was freaking out beaause my keys weren't in my purse.  I thought I was going to have to call a friend to come get me, carry me home to get my spare keys and come back.  Scratch that.  The spare key was in my car as I had thought about leaving it running!  Luckily for me, I put my keys in the hand basket I was using so I was able to check out and got out to my car with no issues.  It started up fine and I was able to get home with no issues.  I was so happy!  I need to sit down and write pen pal lettters as I'm behind because of my beach trip.  I hope to get those done today and somehow get to the post office tomorrow to mail them and check my box for any new ones.  I might type up this batch.  I hate to send typed letters, but sometimes it's the easiest when I'm so behind!  Plus, I want to get them done so I can get them out. :)

OH! I have been using my Macbook since the beach trip and I noticed that my zero key doesn't work. Luckily there is a work around.  I can pull up an on screen keyboard and get it that way. Thank you Google! :D 

One more thing.  Did I mention that I got BACON at the store? I love me some bacon.  Bacon is life, bacon is good. lol


Friday at the beach!

I slept decently last night.  I didn't get as much sleep as I prefer, but it's better than a few nights ago!  Yesterday was  full day.  I walked out to Hwy 17 and went to several beach stores, including my favorite, Bargain Beachwear.  I also went to a Big Lots and a Dollar General too.  I caught some Pokemon along the way and got some sun.  As soon as I post this blog post, I'm going to get dressed and head out for a a walk.  I'm not sure exactly where I'll go today.  Probably something similar to yesterday.  Tomorrow, I plan to walk to the Pavilion area.  

We spent some time of the beach yesterday and that was nice.  I even put my beach chair in the ocean and sat down and let the waves come in over my legs. That was fun.  I posted several posts to Instagram while I was on the beach.  I will share more beach pictures here, too.  I'll probably do an album like I did with the April trip.  For now, I'll just share one of the pictures I took yesterday.

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!
