Starbucks cards!

I got two orders of Starbucks cards today from the same seller.  They are the fall collection and one summer card.  When I got cards at the beach, I was only able to find two of the fall ones.  I had the "You're My Fave" and "Fall Sweet Fall" but not the other ones.  I am happy to add these to my collection!

I think I forgot to mention that right when I got back from the beach, I got the set of Starbucks cards I ordered. I forgot to mention them or show them off.  It was the alphabet collection from 2014.  There are 26 cards. Each has a letter on it A-Z.  I love growing my collection!

While I was putting this latest batch in my binder, I went to organize the extra two cards and made a bit of a filing system for the extra cards I have.  So far, I've only done the old all plastic cards. I'll get to the paper ones next.  I did it like them by year from 2011 on.  I have any from 2004-2010 in the front (I don't have many) and then I have each year.  That way when I get cards, I can keep them organized by year. It will also help if I ever trade cards.  I can find them much quicker by just looking at that years cards!


Missing brush, found lipbalm?

Okay, so... since I got home from the beach, I'm missing my round brush.  I'm sure it's here because we always check the room a few times before leaving. It's probably somewhere I haven't looked.  I did look in my car just in case it fell out there.  While I was looking in there I found a tube of my Softlips lip balm. I have no idea when it got in there.  I know it's mine but I'm not sure where it came from. lol  

As we were leaving the room, I couldn't lay my hands on my Starbucks tumbler that I took with me.  I had filled it with coffee for the road.  When we stopped at Victoria's for breakfast, I looked in the car, but we'd packed it so tight, I couldn't get to everything to look.  Happily, it was located when I unpacked everything in my house.  

During the trip, my friend bought five CDs at a Goodwill and they went missing.  We went to a car wash while at the beach and they had vacuums.  We were vacuuming out the car and I located his CDs under the passenger seat.  Neither of us put them there, so I don't know how the heck they got there!  When I told him about my brush missing, he said to look in the car.  "Maybe they fell into the abyss like my CDs!"  :p.  I didn't find the brush but I found a random lip balm.  Weird stuff. Hopefully, the brush will also turn up eventually.  I didn't pack it last, it went in on Saturday night because I had my other brush out and it made it home!  I swear, weird stuff happens like that a lot.

OH! I meant to mention about the missing part of my book from April.  I found it!  When I pasted it in Evernote, I pasted the same day twice but labeled it different days.  I was able to fix that in Evernote. I like to have it in Evernote for on the go in case I want to review parts and to write myself notes for the next book. It was a whole day I was missing, not just a scene. D'oh!

 

 


Monday evening post

Sorry, we were out most of the day.  We left for Conway and went to the Goodwill over there and my friend went to two pawn shops.  We ate at a Sonic in Conway and it was pretty tasty.  After eating, we headed back this way.  We came back here and he went to one pawn and then we went to two Goodwills.  I found more goodies.  After that we headed back here.  I'm tired but I still want to walk on the beach and spend some time on the balcony.  I need to pack and I don't want to. :(. Here are two pictures I took while we were out.

Both of these were taken in Conway.  There are some pretty places there.  I noticed several walking rails too!

 


Monday post .... not morning. ;P

Yeah, I didn't get a post before noon so...

Anyway.  It is another beautiful day here.  I think this might be the prettiest day we've been here.  It's sunny and HOT! I sat on the balcony for a few minutes before giving up and coming in. :p. I took a picture to share though.  We are probably heading to Conway today to visit a Goodwill, a Salvation Army store, and a pawnshop for him.

Sunday Evening post

It's been a good day since I got back earlier.  I had wanted to go back to the pier and walk on it at night, but that didn't happen.  Oh well.  Maybe on another trip.  I did take a hot bath and that was so nice.  I spent several hours on the balcony and enjoyed that.  I took a few pictures as it got darker to share.

It was a beautiful day here.  


Sunday morning post

Ah, it's nice to be posting from the beach and not on my way home! The two extra days are definitely nice! I am probably going to walk to the Springmaid pier today.  It's either today or tomorrow! LOL. I am running out of time. Yikes!  I will visit it and walk on it and enjoy that.  

I took a few pictures of the beach a few minutes ago. I should have some interesting shots later after walking to the pier!  At least I think so. :P. Here are the ones I have for now:

Saturday Evening post

We went out and ate at Denny's.  We were going to eat at Victoria's but they are closed on the weekend.  We forgot and went there first. D'oh!  Oh well, Denny's was delicious. Look at this chicken sammich!

PXL_20200912_211936345.MP

It was delicious!  We left there and went to a Starbucks we missed yesterday. We've been to it twice this trip already. lol. I found a few things.  After that, I got to go to a brand new Starbucks!  I've never been to this one before so that was cool! It's really nice inside, too.  I got another tumbler. ^^;  Well, I had an offer to spend so much and get bonus stars and the tumbler and the drink put me well over the amount. Plus, I have another tumbler. I also got two cards I didn't find at the other Starbucks!

I still need to get in my beach walk and then I'm not sure what I'm doing.  I'm really tired as my sleep was horrible last night.  I hope to sleep soundly tonight. I'm not sure what we are doing tomorrow.  I still haven't made it to the pier. I have to check to make sure it's open on Sunday! If it is, I'll probably attempt it tomorrow. :)

 


Saturday afternoon post

I got in a nice walk today.  I went down Ocean Boulevard to the little 'park' that is right next to the Ocean Park hotel.  I deployed a couple of Munzees there.  I also walked down the little ramp and took a few beach pictures from beach level.  I'll share those and later there is a pic of a little pond? That I have taken a picture of before but always on the other side.  This time I happened to go down the other street and took a picture.  I went to two stores.  Whales (a beachwear store) and Sugar Life.  I got a shirt, a decal and a mask at Whales.  I got a shirt and some bulk candy at Sugar Life.  That was fun.  I didn't make it up to I Love Sugar this trip so I got some bulk at Sugar Life.  The shirt is cute! It wanted the same shirt in white, but the material was really thin and my bra would show. AH! lol

I walked back to Ocean Boulevard and walked back to the hotel.  I got to meet and pet and cute Pitbull on my way back.  Such a cutie!  I deployed a munzee and Sugar Life too, I forgot about that.  Here are the pictures.

Friday evening post

We went out and visited three Goodwill stores, a Salvation Army store, Tuesday Morning and we ate at King's Famous Pizza in North Myrtle Beach.  It was delicious as always.  I got some cool things.  I found a Sak roots handbag at the Salvation Army store, three pair of shoes at the Goodwill in NMB plus an amazing pen/pencil zip-up case that hold over 100 pens!  It's awesome and it's my favorite color, too!  It was a good day of thrifting for sure.  I found some really cute stuff at Tuesday Morning.  Two packs of washi (like I needed more!), a odd sized TN, some Halloween stampers, and a little book with notes in it.  Very cute! I love everything.  The little TN has two inserts that are regular size TN ones so I can use them in something else if I want.

I took a few pictures while out, too.  Here are some to share:

The first picture is some military plane (I think).  We saw it quite a few places unless there were more of them.
