Murrell's Inlet Feed

Spring Fling!

Spring Fling, you ask?  That is the name of the design on the blog at the moment.  I always loved this one a lot and was able to get it to show up correctly.  Typepad support was able to get to display when I couldn't.  I went and changed something and then went back to it and it wouldn't display correctly. D'oh! I went in and did some more work and got it to display.  I'm not sure why my blog is giving me so many issues.  Boo on that!  Oh well, it's up.  I didn't realize that when I had the Macaroons, I didn't have my link list.  It is now back.  I might even try again with the GoodNotes widget.  Maybe it will work now? Who knows! :P

So today, when I was supposed to walk, it was raining off and on.  My weather apps all said different things!  I decided to not walk at my usual time and hope it was okay later.  I was able to get a walk in a bit after 5pm. It's a good thing I went when I did!  It rained and stormed off and on after that!  I was glad to have my walk completed.  I was home well before the storms hit. I even stopped off at CVS on my way back and picked up a few essentials that I needed.  One was buy one get one half off but they only had the one. The nice cashier gave me 25% off the item so that worked out well. I also had a $5.00 coupon for $5.00 in Extra bucks and used that.  I had over $10 worth of items and I ended up paying $3.00 and some change.  Nice!

I couldn't wash my hair when I came home because I need to cool down and relax for a moment.  Then, it was lightning, so I had to wait.  I just got that done and I'm sitting here with my hair up in a turby twist thingee.  I did not want to sit under the hair bonnet dryer.  I just hope it dries before bedtime. I don't usually wait this late to wash it!  My bed linen is in the dryer and I just need to get that and put it back on the bed.

I am in serious need of a snack.  Too bad I don't have any snacks in the house.  I do have some popsicles though.  They can be a nice cool snack. :p . I have been working on my packing list for the beach trip as I go along.  I already have a ton of shirts to carry.  I carry more than I need because when I walk during the day, I come back to the room all hot and sweaty and I don't want to wear that shirt if we go out in the evening.  I'm going to pack enough so I'll have at least two shirts a day.  I also figured I could wash some in the sink and toss them on the balcony to dry and re-wear them.  

Speaking of shirts, I was looking on eBay and I came across a really cute Finn one.  It was a Loot Crate exclusive.  It will shock anyone who knows me.  It doesn't have Jake on it anywhere! LOL . It was just too cute to pass up and since it was in a Loot Crate, I wouldn't have been able to get it any other way.  I paid less than $10 for it shipped, so I'm pretty happy about that!  

I wanted to order myself a Dead Dog Saloon shirt from DD at Murrell's Inlet, but they don't have any of their shirts on their site for sale at the moment.  Weird!  I am hoping we'll go to the Dead Dog while we are down there, but there is no guarantee.  If we do, I'm probably going to get a shirt.  

I have filled up my Beach Trip Bingo completely now except for one space!  I still need to figure out what to put in that space.  I made sure to only put things in there that I knew we'd do or things I could get to on my own.  My friend sometimes gets cranky and doesn't want to do certain things, so I only put things on there that I know I can accomplish.  Examples include: Visit the Gay Dolphin, Starbucks, Walk on beach, etc.  It's going to be fun to fill my bingo card. ^_^

Okay, I think I've rambled on enough for one day!  I need to get a few more things done and then I'm going to relax for a bit.  I'm currently reading a zombie book that is pretty boring. LOL . It's not that it's boring, really, I just don't care for the characters.  I'm going to try to finish it so I can get on to something else!  Wish me luck!  I also plan to try the Goodreads widget again. If you don't see a Goodreads widget on my blog by Monday, I failed again. :P


I knew that wouldn't last. :P

Yeah, I totally changed the layout today. I like this one a lot better.  For some reason the links at the top will only let me show four, so I put the Typepad about page and the feed link in the sidebar.  I really like this layout.  The banner picture is from Murrells Inlet South Carolina along the Marshwalk.  My friend and I usually walk along it when we visit the Dead Dog Saloon.  I liked this picture that I took in the evening after our visit.  

I hope to keep this layout for a while.  I can either do a dark background or a light one. I prefer the light one, I think.  What do you think?

In other news, I'm pup sitting.  Wait.... I told you this yesterday! :P  These are two very small dogs, so WHY did I not have any room on my bed last night?! lol  Seriously!  Crazy little pups.  They are good dogs though so that is nice.  I hate to tell their peeps that they are going to be uber spoiled when they get home. :P

I crated them when I did today's workouts.  I didn't want to have to worry about them being underfoot!  They watched me for a bit like I was crazy and then went to sleep. lol  It was kind of hilarious.  I got my workouts done and then took them outside.  I had a delicious lunch with delicious coffee.  Now I'm going to relax in my room with the air conditioner.  I need to run up to my friend's house later and check on the house.  Make sure it's locked tight and everything looks okay.  I'll probably wait until a bit later to do that.  For now, I want to relax.  Well, what I really want is to go to Starbucks and get a cascara latte. lol  I did a Star dash recently with the Starbucks app and I have a free drink on my app. :D  I love star dash times because you can earn a free drink quickly!  

Okay, I'm going to relax for a bit.  I didn't sleep well at all last night because one, it was too hot, and two, I had two heaters on my bed... I mean two dogs on my bed lol  Hopefully we can all get situated tonight and I'll sleep well.  Wish me luck!

PS I added my Pinterest feed to the sidebar but it's not showing up.  Well... if I choose just ONE picture, that will show up, but if I want to show more, nope.  I'll try to get it worked out.  I'll leave it for now.


Thursday at the beach!

So, today, I decided I would get in my steps, but not 35,000 of them! :p  I got in my usual 21,000.  I took a walk earlier and went out onto Highway 17 and hit Bargain Beachwear, Eagles, Wings, Rite Aid, and... I think that is all?  I had thought about walking to Apache pier, but I thought I'd save it for tomorrow.  Oh, I went to CVS too.  I thought about eating lunch at Jimmyz, but I didn't.  

I had leftover pizza from last night.  We ordered pizza after midnight last night!  Yeah, we did! :p  It was delicious too!  I spent some time on the balcony and then spent some time on the roof in a lounge chair.  I came back to the room for a bit and then decided to go to the Starbucks that is here at the resort and write some pen pal letters.  It wasn't the regular day, or the regular Starbucks, but it was nice!  I got my tall vanilla latte with  caramel.  After writing my letters I headed back to the room.  

My friend and I went out a bit later and for dinner.  We headed to Murrell's Inlet to the Dead Dog Saloon restaurant.  So delicious!  We were seated on the outside deck.  My favorite place to sit when we were there!  I got my usual, a grilled chicken sandwich with bbq sauce, cheese, and bacon.  So good!  After we left there, we found a Krispy Kreme and picked up a dozen donuts! :D  The hot light was on. :p

We came back here and I went out to walk on the beach a little bit so that I could get in the rest of my steps.  I got them and now I'm posting before showering before bed.  I might skip the shower and just go to bed! I need to get a good night's sleep.  I haven't had one in quite a while!

I will do a picture post soon.  I promise.  If not before I leave here, I'll do one after I get home.  By the way, I have been Snapchatting while here!  I'm AnnDroidGirl there too!


Beach trip, Day four

I ate a sandwich in the room and headed out for my walk.  I walked fifty blocks and ended up near the Sky Wheel. I didn't make it all the way to the Sky Wheel however.  I walked the long, long way back I came back to the room and spend some balcony time, took a bath, and headed back out.  I went to Jimmyz again and had another bowl.  Yummy!

I walked some more and then went back to the room.  Later, my friend and I went to Murrell's Inlet to the Dead Dog Saloon.  It's my favorite place to go when at the beach.  We were seated on the outside deck area.  During the meal, it began getting windy and they moved everyone from the deck area inside.  Good thing too, because it started raining.  I got a DDS t-shirt and we headed back to the room. On the way, we saw the "HOT" sign on at Krispy Kreme and stopped in for a dozen donuts.  DOOOOONUTTTS.  After we got back to the room, I went down to the beach since I hadn't been on it all day.  I crashed a bit early because I wasn't feeling great.
