I meant to post last night. I got into a pretty intense writing spell and forgot. Sorry! I got my writing done and meant to post to my blog and then I left the computer and didn't post. Oops. I didn't have much to say yesterday anyway as I didn't even leave the house! Today, my friend got off of work early and wanted me to ride with him to look at houses for sale. We did and he got us food at Biscuitville. I hadn't eaten there in ages and it was so good! We looked at several houses before heading home.
I had been home for a bit when I realized that I had an offer for 25 bonus stars for today only at Starbucks. I ran over there and got a peppermint white mocha and it was so good! While I was out, I ordered a couple of the medium $5.99 pizzas from Dominos for pickup. Those were not 'so good'. They were actually pretty disappointing. The last two times I got this exact same order, it was delicious. They must have had an off night. Oh well! :(
While my friend and I were out earlier, we went to a local thrift store that I always forget about and never go to We have a Salvation Army thrift store here. I found a pair of new or at least they looked brand new capris. (All clothes half off today!) I also found three ceramic jack o lanterns, some card stock for scrapbooks, a little mini backpack, and two packages of washi tape! It's the brand that is only sold at Walmart and I will not shop at Walmart, so I was happy to see this. It's the washi that is actually individual flower petals. It's so pretty! I wanted to try some but not if I had to go to Walmart. The little mini backpack is from the same line at Walmart. Oh, I also got some adorable vinyl stickers too! I also found something absolutely amazing. My 'new' MacBook Pro that my friend got me had the original Apple charger, but not the extension cord. I had been watching a few on eBay and was going to buy one eventually. I looked over in this one bin with assorted electronics in the store and saw a white cord. It had black paper/cardboard around it. It was the extension cord I wanted! It was a whopping $2! It retails at the Apple store for right at $20. This is a legit Apple one too, I looked. It must have come in someone's laptop box and they didn't use the extender. I got a deal! :) I usually just plug the MBP in with the regular plug because I use it at my desk. I like the extension cord if I want to move it around further. It will come in handy on beach trips as the power strip might not be as close as it is at home! I love finds like that. It would also come in handy if I can ever go to Starbucks and sit inside again. ^_^ Oh how I miss going to Starbucks, sitting, and staying for a few hours. I looked in wistfully tonight as I drove out of the drive-thru.
I hope to write a bit tonight. I changed my blog layout back to the macaroons. I'll probably change it again tomorrow. There is a new layout that Typepad has introduced and I'd like to use it but it's not customizable. If I could change some things around, I'd love it. Oh well! :)
