Fossil journal?

So I was looking up something on Facebook and this Fossil notebook came up.  I watched it but I was outbid which made me decide to look up Fossil notebooks.  Boy was I surprised! I didn't know it was a thing. The one I missed out on was a simple spiral-bound notebook, nothing I couldn't live without.  I found one that is a leather cover with a pen holder and pockets and a notebook.  I bought it and it came today! I also ordered a two-pack of Bic four-color pens.  These are exactly like the four-color pens from years ago (they do still make them) but these have nice pastel colors!  Aqua, Lime, Violet, and Pink!  Very nice.  I took a picture of the new notebook with the pack of pens and then a picture inside with the pen test sheet I did.  The cover of the inside notebook was plain with a little Fossil page inside. I made a color copy of that page and glued it to the plain front of the notebook and then decorated it with washi. I really like the way it turned out.   Look at this:

Of course, the colors are not exact.  The first picture I took in natural light at my desk, the second later tonight after dark.  I love it.  I can refill the little cover with notebooks in the future.  it's very cute and I love that it has a pen holder. (It is absolutely big enough for the Bic multi-pen, too!" It's a weird size, but I found a notebook that I have that will fit it.  I am going to cut out a piece of paper the size of the notebook so when I'm out and I see a notebook I think will fit I can check and make sure.  That is what I did when getting notebooks for my A5 TN!  I am so glad I found it.  It has a bit of pen marking on the front as you can see in the first picture. I'm hoping to get that off, but it not, it's not too bad. It might wear off with time.  The seller did mention it in the listing, so I knew about it.  This guy is going to have a nice home now. ^_^


And so it goes...

I am suffering from cool notebook syndrome.  My little Moleskine Cahiers are so nice I don't know how to go about using them! LOL! I have this issue with a lot of my notebooks.  I really want to make my TN a TN for learning French.  I just have to decide how to go about it.  I was thinking of one notebook for notes while taking lessons.  (Words I have trouble with, things I didn't understand, etc.) and the other two for certain things.  I just haven't decided on those things yet!  I DID put an address label in one of the cahiers.  Progress, I guess? 

In other news, I have been writing on my fic every day.  I figure it's good practice for NaNo.  I do need to do some more prep for NaNo but not too much.  I have the idea of the book in my head.  I just need to decide on what the main thing will be.  If my male skater is hurt, I have to research that.  If I do the stalking story, that will be easy peasy.  I read and watch enough true crime to have that one in the bag. LOL!  I will probably do the stalking and the injury in another book.  Who knows with me?

I have been playing Munzee every day for the past couple of weeks.  They have a Zeeops event going on and I've been able to do everything so far.  Tomorrow is the last day of this week's tasks.  I hope I'm able to do it and get the bonus. If you complete every day you get an extra perk at the end.  It's been fun and I've had a lot of fun deploying Munzees.  


Puzzles!

My friend and I made it out to the Dollar Tree today and I found ten new puzzles.  Yay!  I had been putting off starting the one I got at the beach because I was out.  I noticed they had a new case of Puzzlebug puzzles with a lot of good ones. I found 10 that I love.  I also got a composition book that matches the cute coffee zipper case I got last time, two of the car cell phone holders (YAY), some stickers, and Halloween stencils.  Oh and a bottle of dishwashing liquid.  I will be starting a new puzzle tomorrow. :)

Last night at the beach....

Good grief. I just typed up a post and it disappeared when I tried to publish it. I’m going to type this one up in a note app so that if that happens again, I don’t lose all my work! UGH! So, let me see if I can remember what I posted…

So, I am sitting on the balcony and I just finished some delicious Hungry Howie’s pizza. We just got back to the room a little while ago. Where did we go? Well, when we left, we went to Dairy Queen and got some food. We then headed to North Myrtle Beach to go to Tuesday Morning. I absolutely LOVE Tuesday Morning! I got a lot of rolls of individual washi, a plastic jar of craft stuff, and a cool journal with the Eiffel Tower on it and Paris. I really didn’t need another journal, but I couldn’t pass this one up. It was on sale and it was cool! It’s a pretty good size, too.

As I’m sitting here typing this, some dudes on the beach and setting off fireworks and it’s great1 They did it last night too, but they have more tonight! lol I just saw them go running in, the police might be coming. I hope they come back and set off some more!

Okay, so we went to Tuesday Morning and I got goodies. Then we went by a pawn shop that my friend likes and he found a vintage album. After that, we headed to Broadway at the Beach. It’s got shops, rides, restaurants, and all kinds of stuff. It’s huge. We went to a couple of stores that we like and I got Starbucks! ;p There is a Starbucks in there that I’ve never been to. That makes four new ones this trip for my Starbucks tracker. Yay!

I got a caramel Frappuccino since it was so hot. Broadway is all open air with each shop with a separate entrance. After we got in the car at Broaday, I ordered the pizza from Hungry Howie’s. I signed up for their rewards several years back on a trip here, and I had a free medium, two topping pizza. I ordered that and we picked it up on our way back to the room. My half was delicious!

It’s been lightning here since I’ve been writing this. I felt a drop of rain a minute ago and it smells like rain. Maybe that is why the guys went in. I hope they’ll come back out later and shoot off more fireworks! We leave in the morning. We usually don’t get out of the hotel until right at check out time. I might post in the morning before we leave, and I may not. I will probably pack up tonight. We’ll see.

Okay, this actually turned out longer than the post I had already done! :p I’ll leave you with three pictures I took. Two inside and one outside of the Starbucks at Broadway. Nevermind.  I've tried four times.  The wifi here sucks!

 


D'oh

I opened the tab on Chrome to post this and then went and did something else.  I guess I'll post now!  I did my workouts at the usual time today.  No Starbucks trip today.  I am trying to wait until at least the weekend. lol  I had a good lunch and I have already done my French lesson. I want to make a Starbucks tracker in my bujo. I want to track stores visited. I have decided to do it like this:

  Store  |  Location  |  Something here

I can't decide what to include in the third area.  I had a suggestion to include what I orders, any special things that happened, how they spelled my name. lol I just can't decide what I want that last bit to be.  As soon as I figure it out, I'll be making the spread.  I already have the page marked for it.  I think it's going to be pretty neat!

 In other news, I am waiting on a package from Amazon.  I ordered it on July 31st and I waited for days for it to ship.  It finally did and now I'm just waiting on it.  It still says it won't be here until Thursday.  Ten days to get a package is too long! :(  Makes me sad.  I had a $25 gift card and I got a passport size traveler's notebook, a set of purple washi tapes, and a pen.  I got the pen to make it $25 so I could get free shipping. lol  I guess I should have gone with paid shipping and maybe I'd have it by now!  I hate waiting on packages.  It's that stupid UPS - USPS shipping too.  I wish they could just sent it one or the other.  Oh well, it's in Roanoke now.  Hopefully it will be in Danville tonight and they'll transfer it to the post office early enough so I'll get it tomorrow.  I can hope!

Okay, so here is the notebook with the pen in the front and a view of one of the inside pages.  I think this will be perfect for my French learning.  I looked up the info inside and the codes are for  http://www.stkrit.com  It's probably something I won't use for this notebook, but I might use for something else.  It looks pretty neat!  Here is the notebook cover and the inside:

More about French

I am wanting to start a notebook for my French studies.  I can't decide if I want to do a bullet journal type notebook or just a plain notebook.  I think it would be good to write down words and their translations that I have problems with when I do my lessons.  Writing them down would also let me review things when I'm not online.  I just think it would be helpful to have the extra notes.  I am down to several different notebooks.  Which do I choose?

I'm thinking the orange ring bound one on the bottom left would be the best.  I could lay it either way and it also has a rubber thing around the front where I could store a pen.  It's actually a "Markings" notebook by C.R. Gibson and it came with three codes to use to transfer a page to the web.  I probably would really use that for French, though.  I got in some time back at Target because I thought it was cool.  I tend to buy a lot of notebooks and then never use them. :P  You should see my box of regular full size page notebooks that I have.
