Sipping Starbucks and blogging...

Yes, I am! I tried to get my friend to carry me over there but she wouldn't. Phooey on her! :P  I drove to the post office and then went on to Starbucks while out.  I got two letters.  I have those and the two I got recently. Sadly, I only have five stamps! :(  I only have those because my friend bought a book and gave me a few! I was happy about that.

My walk was quite steamy today.  When I left Starbucks, the bank said it was 94˚!  Yes, I got hot coffee. LOL!  It was so funny.  I walk up to the counter and look at the gift cards.  I got a few of the new special ones. YAY1  The barista said, "You want your cascara?"  :P  I said, "Yes,"  She said, "Hot?" I said yes. LOL  I'm the cascara lady at Starbucks. :p  I got my goodie and then left to drive home. I made it home safely and now I'm drinking my latte and blogging.

Last night right at midnight, I decided it would be a good time to move my room around.  I did it, too!  I like to change it up every so often.  The way it is now, I have more room on both sides of my yoga mat when I'm doing workouts, but I have less room long ways.  The only thing this will make trouble with is roll overs and they aren't in the videos a lot.  If they are, I can move my mat to a different spot.  

I've done my workouts and my French lesson.  I just need to do my squats for today.  I've been doing them everyday.  I've been loading the video that Cassey does and do them along with her.  I am walking at the time she goes live, so I watch it later in the day. That is the only thing I need to do for today.  I do need to hang a couple of beach wind chimes that I took down when I moved the room around.  They go in another spot when the room is this way. I need to do that and straighten the stuff under my bed and I'll be done.  I might get to my letters and write some tonight.  Who knows?! ^_^


First full day back on my routine.

I got in  my walk today and luckily, it wasn't as hot as my walks were at the beach.  I stopped at the grocery store on the way home to pick up two things I needed so I didn't have to go for a big trip later.  I got home and relaxed and cooled off.  I got up and did my workouts.  I did those and then my French lesson.  I had time after that to relax a bit, so I did until lunch time.

I fixed myself some lunch.  I ate and then got up to go mow.  The front lawn had gotten pretty high while I was gone, so that needed doing.  I got it done and came in to cool off and relax.  I washed another load of laundry.  This was the things I didn't get around to yesterday.  I sat down and paid all my bills.  I'll have to be frugal at the grocery store this month.  I had two extra bills that I don't usually have.  I didn't spend as much as I usually do at the beach, so that helped out a lot!

I eventually want to do a recap post of the trip.  I also want to share pictures of some of the goodies I got.  I'll try to do that later this week.  I'm back on track for my usual stuff today, so that is good.  I am really sleepy, though. I never sleep well at the beach, and I tend to get up a lot earlier than I do at home.  I slept pretty well last night and I'm hoping to sleep just as well tonight! I need it.

I don't know if I mentioned it while at the beach, I got quite a stack of Starbucks cards that I didn't have.  I just put them in my binder that I keep them in.  I always love getting new ones.  I now need to add the four Starbucks stores that I visited to my tracker. ^_^  That will be awesome.  


Saturday shenanigans....

So, I was dressed and ready to go for my walk. My friend had asked me early if I wanted to ride with him to Reidsville.  I said, no, I better walk.  He texted me again and asked just as I was leaving.  I caved. :P  I rode with him to Reidsville.  We went to a couple of thrift stores.  We ate over there and went to Eden to a Goodwill and then Martinsville to another Goodwill! LOL!  I ended the day with three new coffee cups, another zipper case, a spiralizer, an adorable little ceramic jack o lantern, a pair of shorts, and a Dell crossword puzzle book.  My friend got it all for me. Yay!  The coffee cups are cool.  One is a mug that has the word cappucino all over it.  There is a taller polka dot cup, and a big Starbucks mug. Whee!  

We came back to town and he dropped me off so he could go home and change. I changed shoes and put on my belt bag and got my backpack.  We headed to the Riverwalk trail.  Parts of it were under water!  I took a few pictures to show how it was.  We did walk some, but not as much as we usually do because of the water.

 

Yes, I did my workouts today, too! I'm going to relax with my Kindle until bedtime. I haven't slept well lately and I want to change that tonight! 


Wednesday is Starbucks time.

Well, it was double star day today so, of course, I went to Starbucks. I'm all about those extra stars! :p  I went to the drive thru since I was over there later than usual.  I looked in as I drove by the front and there were plenty of seats. ~_~; Figures!  If I had gone to stay, I wouldn't have found a seat.  Oh well, I got my latte and it was pretty good.  I tried the blonde caramel latte.  It was pretty good, but nothing is as good as my cascara latte. :(  I miss that stuff.  Starbucks, if you are listening, BRING IT BACK!!!!!!!!!!  

In other news, I walked today.  It was a bit overcast when I started, but the sun came out.  It's a good thing too.  I forgot my umbrella!  It rained during yesterday's walk and I went out with a friend yesterday evening, so I had my umbrella drying.  I forgot to put it in my backpack.  I was so happy when it didn't rain! :p

I did my workouts yesterday and today, I have been on schedule for everything.  A few days ago, I ordered the matching wallet to my new purse.  I can't wait to get it.  I've never had a  purse with a matching wallet.  I'll be so fancy. lol  I also ordered a Japanese Starbucks card yesterday on ebay.  It's a Sakara card and it's gorgeous!  I can't wait to get it.  Something cool to add to my collection. ^_^  I've always wanted some Sakura related from Starbucks so this was a no brainer.  I, of course, will share pictures when I get it.

Sorry about that post yesterday.  I was tired, frustrated, and just plain grumpy! It was just not a good idea to post to my blog when I was in that mood.  The rain yesterday was just depressing.  My friend wanted to go to one of our favorite local restaurants, so we did.  After I got home, I called another friend and she asked if I'd ride with her somewhere.  I did.  Her mom was in a car wreck yesterday.  Her truck is totaled.  They had to cut her out of it!  She is walking around today!  Amazing.  The woman is almost 70!  

I've been playing Pocket Camp.  I need TWO more of the navy ladybugs to get the Spring background.  Since I have until Saturday, I should be able to get it.  I just got the flower swing today.  There is one more thing to earn after the background, but if I get that, I'll be happy!  They also introduced new animals today! :)  The game is so fun.  Goldie is and always will be my favorite!


Starbucks and shoes?

Yes, that is what this post is about!  First of all, I wore my new shoes today.  My foot is still hurting, but not as much as it has been.  I think the shoes are going to help.  They are Saucony Cohesion 11.  I have had Saucony shoes before and I really like them.  These are in Fog Blue color and they are gorgeous.  Here is a stock photo:

I love blue. My friend was nice enough to get these for me and I will pay him back soon.  They are comfy and pretty!

 

Now, on to the Starbucks part of this post.  I got the item that I mentioned earlier this month.  It's a card and case from China!  It came today all the way from Beijing China.  I did a little collage of it.  It's so cool!  It has the card, the case, a little notepad, and a little booklet about the Gold program in Chinese. :D

Starbucksgoodies

I love it! The case has the siren tail embossed on it and Starbucks embossed on it. I am in love. ^__^  After walking and doing my workouts, I spend some time outside. It's warm and nice today.  I then went to Starbucks and treated myself to a free venti cascara latte.  I had three free drinks on my card. :p  I have two now! :D


What a day!

So, I woke up today to warm weather!  The high today was 72!  It was really nice.  The sun even came out for a bit.  It's been so cloudy and overcast for so long.  It was nice to see the sun.  I got in a nice walk and came home and relaxed a bit before doing my workouts.  I got those done and then did my French lesson and had a few minutes to relax before fixing lunch.  After lunch, I was just hanging out and then I thought about going to Starbucks.  I wanted to go, but I didn't want to get there and not have a place to sit.  I decided that I'd go and if there was nowhere to sit, I'd get a drink and bring it home with me.

I got there and one of the little tables was free!!!!  I put my messenger bag down to hold that table and went to get in line.  I got my cascara latte, a venti!  I also got two new gift cards that I didn't have.  They were just putting them out! I had my pen pal letters with me.  I wrote to all my pen pals and drank my latte.  While I was writing, I noticed that the couple that has the Corgi.  I had to go see him.  I got lots of Corgi kisses!!!!!! He is such a sweet pup.  The pair are regulars like myself.  I was telling her about this being my fourth time coming and trying to get a place to sit.  She said they'd been having the same issues.  I really wish the place was bigger.  We both miss the old location.

I stayed at Starbucks after I finished my letters for a bit and then headed out.  I went by the post office to check my box.  I couldn't mail my letters as I didn't take any envelopes or stamps with me.  I'll mail them on tomorrow's walk.  I only had one letter at my box.  I'm totally caught up except for the new one that just came.  I have the names of two potential pals and I'm going to write a couple of  small intro letters to sent to them with my 'new pal' letter.  I'll do that and then I'll read and play more Pocket Camp.  I'm watching the Olympics again.  More Skeleton tonight.  This stuff is nuts!  The male figure skaters are on tonight too.  


Double stars!

It was double star day at Starbucks today.  I found this out after I went last night! lol  I saw a mug that I really wanted at the Target Starbucks when I went earlier and I decided that today was a great day to buy it.  Double star days are great.  Normally they give you two stars for every dollar you spend. On double star days, you get 4.  I try to buy any drinkware on double star days.  If there isn't any drinkware I need or want, I just get something to drink or eat. ^__^

I didn't get anything to drink today since I had a latte from the regular location yesterday.  I love my new mug. It's now my current favorite coffee mug. lol  It's very spring like.  Here are a few pictures:

 

 The lighting in my house sucks!  I did the best I could with these.  I love this mug.  It's so pretty! Just what I needed, another item for my massive Starbucks collection! LOL!


So busy!~

It has been an incredibly busy day for me.  I've been gone almost all day!  I went for my walk and it was COLD.  Well, the temperature was around forty, but when the wind blew it was freezing!  I got my walk in and came home and had a cup of coffee and a quick snack and then went to Family Dollar.  I got my essentials for the month and then headed to the grocery store.  I spend WAY too much in there and I forgot a couple of items.  I brought those home and put them away.  That was a job in itself!  I then went by my friend's house to see something he got in the mail.  He and I went to eat and then hit Goodwill.  I found a brand new hoodie that has Myrtle Beach on it. ^___^  It is the same brand as the hoodies I buy at the beachwear stores.  I swear it looks like it's never been worn. I got it for $5!  My friend found a fleece pullover half zip hoodie with Myrtle Beach on it and he got that for me.  I got two cool MB shirts and I didn't even leave town. :P  I also found a cute set of Halloween stampers for .99.  They were originally a $3 item at the Target dollar spot.   I love stamps and I love halloween!

I dropped him off and then came home.  My other friend had wanted to do something earlier, so I called her to see if she wanted to go to Starbucks.  She drove us to Target where I spent too much money!  I got a better bag for my bujo.  This one is perfect.  It's actually a make up bag like the one I bought on Amazon, but this one is a little bigger, with better handles, and it's just great.  I love it.  I can use the one I got on Amazon for something else.  I'll do a picture of the bag perhaps tomorrow.  I also got two cute rolls of washi in the dollar spot, a set of adorbs sticky notes, also from the dollar spot!  I got a little draw string bag.... yes, dollar spot. :P  I also got a four pack of the rolling wite out.  The two pack is 2.99 and they had the four pack on sale for 4.99 so I grabbed it.  I use it a lot!  I correct things in my checkbook and I also use it for envelopes when I make a mistake on the address.  It's also good for fixing goof in the bullet journal!  I got all that and I found a compact of pressed powder that didn't cost ten dollars!  I only use powder every now and then because my face gets really red.  I haven't used make up in years!  

After we left Target, we went by Starbucks.  I ran in and got a Venti cascara latte and grabbed two of the Blonde sleeves to add to my collection.  I came home and did my workouts.  I still have a lot to do before bed and it's almost 11.  Yikes!  I need a few more hours to add to this day!  Wow, I didn't plan to write this much today.  Good for me! ^__^


New Starbucks cards

I received the three Starbucks cards I ordered on ebay today!  These are so cool! One is from Mexico, one is from France, and one is made of recycled coffee bean bags.  I love them all!  I took a picture to share:

The order in the picture is: Mexico, recycled, France.  I love them all!  I didn't have any of these designs so that made it even better.  I love collecting these.  I now have three country cards.  I want more! ^___^
