Thursday evening post

Let's try this again! I was trying to make a post and it disappeared. So, no afternoon post because we were out during the afternoon.  We went to a Salvation Army store in North Myrtle Beach, a Goodwill there, and a pawn shop for my friend.  In Myrtle, we went to two other Goodwills and a pawn shop.  We stopped by Charley's Cheesesteaks in the mall to get food to bring back here. I had half a sandwich and now the other half is calling to me! LOL!  I took a few pictures while out and one picture when I first got out here on the balcony. Enjoy! :)

Trip recap!

I'm actually going to do one. Yay! I also hope to put a picture I pick at random from my beach pictures. Let's see, so, like I said, I only found out on Tuesday that we were going down that Thursday.  I spent Wednesday washing clothes and packing.  I didn't sleep worth a damn on Wednesday night so I was extremely tired Thursday when we got there.  We found our room very nice and clean. As I mentioned, it was a bit small, but it was perfectly fine.  10/10 we would both stay again.  That first night, we went to Victoria's to eat and then got a few groceries. We'd brought soda with us so we only had to buy a bit of food for the room.  We did that and then settled in.

That night I had a hard time sleeping again because of the pillows on my bed. They sucked. I always carry my feather pillow with me when I travel, so at least I had that. I had to double over my pillow on top of one of the ones they had to finally get comfortable. Their pillows were weird! I was tired on Friday too but luckily, we didn't leave the room.  I spend a lot of balcony time as I did on the September trip. I had my beach chair out there and just camped out. That was nice. I was out there when I heard about Betty White and was so upset. I went in to tell my friend. It was so sad to hear. She was such a sweetheart and will be sorely missed by so many people.  The rest of the day, I spend either on the balcony or in the room relaxing.  I was able to watch the ball drop on ABC and did that.  People were shooting off fireworks on the beach for a long time after that. The bad thing was, the fog had rolled in THICK that night and if the fireworks were not right next to the hotel or really close by there was no use to look. You couldn't see anything! lol We ordered two meals from DoorDash. One from Hungry Howie's and one from Charlie's Cheeseteaks. 

So, Saturday, we went out to do our thrift and pawn shops.  We found a new Goodwill we'd never been to, so that was nice. Sadly, the pawnshops he likes were closed.  We did make it to four more Goodwills. Two in Myrtle, one in Surfside / Murrell's, and one in North Myrtle beach. I didn't get a lot, but I did get a few things. I found a Fossil bag in one Goodwill that had the key still on it and a bonus! Someone had bought one of the key and lock Fossil keychains and attached it to the bag too. Score! :D  I was very happy to have that and the bag rang up a whole $2.00! Nice!  We at that night at King's Famous Pizza in NMB and I got baklava to carry back to the room. YUM!  I packed up that night and had everything ready for an easier day on Sunday.

Sunday we got up and ate some of the last of our leftover pizza and get our things together and checked out. We drove up to NMB and went back to Goodwill. We were looking for something my friend had seen the day before and told me about that I wanted, but sadly, it was gone. :(  We headed on and went to Long's to the Goodwill there and then on.  We stopped in Tabor City and got some fries and drinks at McDonald's there.  We also stopped at the Sandwich hut in Rockingham NC.

We at in Reidsville, NC, and went to the Goodwill there. I found a black leather Fossil bag! :) Atter that, we headed home. All in all a nice trip. I got several fun thrifting items. My favorites are the Fossil keychain that I found on that one purse, and a nice Speck case for my iPad Mini!  So, I finally did a Myrtle Beach trip recap. Yay!  Now, let's share a random picture and hope it isn't one I've already shared. lol Ah, the fog. I never did show a good picture of that. It was much more ominous in person, btw!

Neat, yes? I like the way the hotel next door is the only light you can see.

 


Saturday evening post

Sorry about no post this afternoon. The wife was acting up again and I couldn't get anything to work. As it is, this might not even let me post. We'll see.  I am going to share one beach picture from the afternoon and a few pictures I took while we were out today. We went to all the Goodwills down here and even found a new one! :D

Thursday evening post

I'm back at the hotel and back on the balcony.  We went out to get a few thrift shops we had missed as of today.  We went to the Salvation Army in North Myrtle Beach, The Goodwill in North Myrle Beach, and he went to a pawn shop there.  We then went to Conway and went to the Goodwill there.  I got a Fossil bag at the Conway Goodwill, a refill for a sticker maker (Not sure if it's the right size for mine, but it was brand new so I got it, and something else that I can't remember! I got a shirt and some paper at the Salvation Army in NMB, I forgot to mention that. Nothing at GW in NMB.

At Loyola, I only got a little tin and a face mask. (For sleep or relaxation).  I wish I could remember the other thing I got at the Goodwill in Conway. If I were inside the room, I could tell you as that is where it is! lol, I have some random pictures to share.  The last is of the sky when we got back here.  I took them while eating a delicious cheesesteak! :) Enjoy and see you tomorrow.

Friday evening post

We went out to eat at Victoria's this afternoon just as I was sitting down to write a post!  We ate at Victoria's and then went to the Goodwill on Loyola. I found another cute zipper pouch and a rechargeable radio and flashlight set.  It started storming while we are out. Lots of thunder, lightning and rain.  We went from there to the Goodwill in Murrel's Inlet. I found a sea-themed stamper set there for .99¢!  We went to the Tuesday Morning we had missed down there.  I got more stuff. :p We then headed back up and stopped at the Tuesday Morning in Myrtle. I sat that one out.  We went on to North Myrtle to the Tuesday Morning there. I got a couple of packs of notebooks and then we went by the Starbucks! :) I got a Peppermint white mocha. Yum!  After that, we went to Goodwill in NMB and I found a 12 pack of Staedtler fineliners for .99¢!  I also found a Starbucks tumbler from 2004 with Hawaii on it! @_@! Very, very, cool. I almost missed it, too!

After we left there, we ordered from Hungry Howies and drove back down to Myrtle and picked it up and brought it back to the room.  I ate two pieces already. :p It was good.  Now I just need to get in my beach walk.  I'm very tired so it's going to be a quick walk out to the ocean. I will put my feet in the water, and then come back in! lol Here are a few pictures I took while out of the sky at different points.

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.  

 


Friday afternoon post

My friend is currently getting ready and we are going out to North Myrtle Beach today.  He ordered something to be delivered up there and we are heading that way.  We should be going to Goodwill and Salvation Army thrift stores up that way. I'm hoping for us to eat at King's Famous Pizza, but I'm not sure yet.  I would also like to go to Tuesday Morning.  It's dangerous but it's so much fun to shop! lol

I was watching the ocean a bit ago and saw a banana boat that kept stopping.  The people on the banana boat kept falling and jumping into the water. I've never seen that before.  Drama at the beach. :p. I took some pictures of the sky just a moment ago because it was so pretty.  Enjoy.

Isn't the sky in that first picture just gorgeous!  The clouds in the last one are cool too. It's a beautiful day here for sure. ^_^


Saturday evening...

Last nightly post from Myrtle Beach. :(   We went to North Myrtle Beach and went to King's Famous Pizza.  We haven't eaten there in quite a while.  It was delicious.  After eating, we went across the road to the Goodwill.  I found a few small things.  A set of binder divider pages, A little notepad thingee, and a cute fabric jack o lantern fridge magnet.  My friend carried me by Starbucks in Myrtle. Yay!  I got a grande Cascara latte and it was delicious as always.  I've been to this Starbucks location only once before. It's a cute little location.

We headed back here and I sat down to post this.  I'm going for a walk on the beach and then pack most of my stuff.  I have all the things I bought already packed except for one t-shirt and I'm planning on wearing that home tomorrow.  I bought it the day I went to the Gay Dolphin.  I've gotten several shirts on the last few trips from there and they seem to hold up nicely.

Monday evening

We went out to eat at Victoria's and it was delicious as always.  I took a picture of my food to share. lol . I got the special.  Two pork chops, and three sides. I got mashed potatoes and macaroni and cheese.  It was so good!  We left there and went to North Myrtle Beach to the Goodwill.  I got a cool Starbucks stainless tumbler, two coffee mugs, a puzzle, a nice purse (not a Fossil lol), a mini Jack o lantern bag, and a ceramic Jack o' lantern.  I also got to get to go to the new Starbucks that is at North Myrtle beach!  It was nice.  I took two pictures in there, but only one took, so I'm sharing it.  I am going to rest a bit and then I think I'm going for a beach walk.  Well, I know I'm going for one tonight, I'm just not sure exactly when. :P

OH! We also went to Tuesday Morning! I got a cool sticker book, three packages of washi and a package of notebooks. :P

A day of puzzling and relaxing

I started a new puzzle today and did a lot more on it than I had planned.  I was only going to do the outline and the sky.  I started on one of the buildings and ended up doing them all. I only have the tulips to do tomorrow.  I only have two more puzzles after this. Oh no! I have one left from my Dollar Tree trip and the new one I got yesterday at Dollar General.  I am hoping to find a bunch of puzzles on the beach trip next month!  I got 21 puzzles on the last trip, I'm hoping to get at least than many in September. lol

I ran out to do a quick errand this evening and my car was actually doing well.  I'm not saying it always will, but at least it was working well this afternoon. Of course my silly butt didn't go to Starbucks while I was out.  I figured that what money I have on my card, I can save for the beach trip.  My friend finally picked which place we are staying.  We are staying in Myrtle, so I'll be taking my daily walk to the ocean front Starbucks. ^_^ It's a nice little location.  The best view and the best coffee.

I also hope to go to a new Starbucks that I spotted last year near the end of our trip in North Myrtle.  When my friend and I go up to North Myrtle, I am going to ask him to take me to it so I can cross off another new Starbucks. ^_^

Hello again!

I'm back again.  After I'd been here a while, my friend wanted to go out. First he was going down to the beach, but then he changed his mind and we went out. lol We went up to North Myrtle Beach and he went to the pawn shop and then we went to Goodwill.  I found some pajama bottoms, (three pair) and two vintage 750 piece puzzles.  I hope all the pieces are there!  I really liked the pictures on them.  They were not sealed, so I was taking a chance, but I think it will be worth it.  The puzzles are Guild puzzles made by Whitman! That is a brand I remember seeing a lot when I was young.  I think having them for that alone is pretty cool.  I hope they are complete!

The Goodwill at NMB is right next door to a Dollar General and we went over there.  I needed some batteries for my camera and a compact.  I also bought a cute bath sponge shaped like a popsicle! :p . After we left there, we headed for Victoria's to eat.  That was delicious and filling.  I got the special.  Pork chops and three sides!  They brought me two delicious pork chops and I got two mashed potatoes and one Mac and cheese as my sides.  It was delicious!  Sooo much food and only 7.99!  My friend got a breakfast platter that had 3 eggs, 3 pancakes, 3 sausage patties, and 3 strips of bacon!  6.99!!!!  Wow.  Good food for a great price.  We were both stuffed. lol . My pork chops were delicious.  

After we left there, we headed back here.  It was still light when we got here, but it's dark now.  I'm sitting on the balcony looking out at the ocean and towards the 2nd ave. pier.  It's lit up and pretty at night.  I would like to walk out on it at night.  I should check their hours.  I would love to go out during the day and then go back at night.  Some piers will stamp your hand so you can come and go all day.  I'll look into that.

I want to visit the Ripley's Believe it or Not museum that is at the Pavilion area.  It's 19.99 a ticket, but I found a coupon for $3.00 off.  I'll decide in the next few days and see what I decided to do.  I'm not sure yet.  I do plan to go out on at least one of the piers.  I just haven't decided which one, yet!


Yes, I am aware!

Yes, I know I didn't post yesterday. Sorry about that.  I didn't do much of anything yesterday!  I skipped my walk because I thought my friend and I might walk.  He was off from yesterday until Monday.  He didn't want to walk, so I missed out on my walk.  Oops!  It was made worse by the fact that I couldn't walk today because of rain and the threat of bad weather.  Oh well! I'll walk tomorrow and it will be okay.

To show you how lazy I was yesterday, I didn't even do anything for Camp NaNo!  I made up for it tonight.  I wrote over 1000 words.  I'm almost to 15,000 now and I only set the goal for myself of 20,000 so I'm doing quite well.

I went out this evening to hit a Pokestop as I was on a streak and I didn't want to break it.  I went out yesterday long enough to do that too.  While I was out today, it had started clearing off, so I headed to Starbucks. :P . I went through the drive-thru and got my favorite, a cascara latte.  It was delicious as usual and I had a nice convo with the barista at the drive-thru about he new award program. (No one was behind me and we were waiting on my drink!)

My puzzle is not going very well.  I got ONE piece in yesterday and today? Two. ^^; Seriously.  It's so frustrating!  When I get one, it takes so long to get it that I get tired of looking and give up. lolI told my friend tonight that I was tempted to toss it back in the box again! :P

I've been looking up old puzzles on eBay. I've found a bunch I really like but with shipping, the price is too high!  Just about every puzzle I see that like has a price tag of at least $8 and the shipping is usually $10 or more.  Plus, I am always looking for sealed boxes.  I don't want to do one and find a piece missing!  That is so frustrating.   I love that people have some really cool older puzzles on there that are still sealed.  I see many I want, but with shipping, I just can't afford it.  It's funny, I saw one puzzle that I bought at Dollar General for $5.  They only wanted $3 for theirs but the shipping was at least $10.  Oh well, I'll keep looking.  I prefer puzzles with actual pictures instead of illustrations.  There are some gorgeous ones in the Big Ben brand on eBay.  Big Ben is the brand of the puzzle I did earlier this month with the white bark trees.  I know they make good quality puzzles.

I'm sort of down in the dumps this weekend.  Why?  Well, for the past two years, my friend and I have gone to North Myrtle Beach on Easter weekend.  We didn't go this year.  I would so love to be there!  Well, the trip at the end of May, beginning of June isn't too far off.  It just seems like forever!  I am working on a packing list for the trip in my bujo and I already have the majority of my beach fun bingo set up. I just need to pick three more things to add to the board for it to be complete.

 


Evening post!

So, I spent some balcony time this afternoon after getting back to the room.  My friend and I went out after that.  We went to North Myrtle Beach.  I wanted to go to Tuesday Morning and I got to go!  I got a planner and some inserts from a different kind of planner.  I also got some washi. :p We went to the Goodwill while we were up there.  I usually find stuff I want at that one, but this time I didn't. Oh well.  

We went to Sonic for dinner and it was good.  We hit the grocery store to pick up a few things we needed after that.  Now, I'm sitting in the room on my bed relaxing.  I like my planner.  I am going to see if I can't get some more stuff for it.  I'm hoping the inserts that I got will work for a planner I have at home.  The planner I bought was one I've never seen. It's got weird rings.  It's pretty though . It's green and has Hello on the cover.  The receipt says "Planner Hell" LOL!

I am going to take a beach walk later, I am not sure when.  Sometime between now and midnight.  I still need to do my French lesson.  I guess I can do that after I finish posting this.  I might go out on the balcony for a bit.  My friend is watching tv and it's way too loud.  I already have a headache and it's not helping at all. 

Oh, I forgot to mention I got to go to the Starbucks at NMB.  It's one of my favorite stores.  I was able to get a stack of gift cards that I didn't have.  Yay! ^___^
