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!

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. :)

 


Tuesday evening post

So, we went out and ate at Victoria's Country Cookin'.  It's one of our favorite places to eat down here.  We went to three Goodwills after that.  I found some goodies at all three!  My friend got a shake at Cookout and while he was in line, I walked over to Starbucks and got some Starbucks. I also was able to pick up a bunch of cards. Yay! :)  It's always nice to get new cards.

I found a Fossil wristlet at one of the Goodwill stores, I found a Starbucks tumbler at another.  It is missing its lid, but it was in good condition.  I got various other things at each place. It was a pretty good haul!  

 

We also went to Food Lion while out and go some drinks and some food and snacks for the room.  We are set for a while. We are going to order pizza later from Hungry Howie's. Yum!


Stuff and more stuff!

So, yesterday at Goodwill I got a lot of stuff.  I got a Starbucks cold cup tumbler.  It is missing it's straw, but I can get replacement ones. I found another 'Starbucks' tumbler.  I say it like that because it DOES have a Starbucks logo on it, I'm just not sure it's a legit Starbucks tumbler.  I am still searching to see if I can find one like it.  I also found a really cool Starbucks cup from the Barista line! ^_^. First time finding anything like that.  I also got some stretch sting (for crafting), two pumpkin buckets, the Pokeball, a snowman ornament, a mug with a red crocheted cozy, a Gap purse (.99!), some graph paper, and a letter-size pad holder.  Whoever donated it left a cute Harry Potter pen in there so that was an extra score! I think that was all I got.  I got all of that for $16. Not bad at all!  

Today, I only went out once.  I had planned to go and wash Goontz and then vacuum too.  As I left the house, it was a bit cloudy, but no rain.  As I started driving it began to sprinkle and then the bottom fell out! LOL! It rained a LOT.  I decided to give up on the car wash since I was getting a free one!  I went to Dairy Queen and had a cotton candy Blizzard.  I had forgotten just how good they are.  It was delicious.  I turned on Munzee while there and noticed that the parking lot I was sitting in to eat had quite a few Munzees.  I was only able to find two and capture one.  One was faded too much to scan.  The others were in other parts of the lot, but it was still drizzling a bit and it began to thunder, so I headed home. Most of the Munzee stickers were on light poles and I didn't want to be scanning and become a possible target for a lightning strike! :P I'll go get the other ones at another time.  

PS Blizzards are EXPENSIVE! Sheesh!

 

PPS The Starbucks tumbler IS legit.  It's an old Thermoseve one.  I can find many of them that are the same type as mine but with different designs. I haven't been able to find a picture of my design, but they are legit.  I am just so used to all Starbucks cups having Starbucks on the bottom.  I guess these were before they changed.  

 


A big oops!

I didn't post for two days.  I totally meant to post yesterday to make up for not posting on Tuesday and then I realized it was two minutes to midnight and it wasn't going to happen!  I'll post now though.  I received my latest Starbucks find in the mail.  This is the second time I had to order it.  The first one from another seller never came.  I couldn't put in a claim on it because with informed delivery, I thought it was here.  It wasn't. It was something else and I had already canceled my "I didn't get it claim" So, I found one from another seller and bought it.  This is the card in  question:

It's a nice one and I was happy to add it to my collection. The lovely seller sent a couple of extra cards because they didn't mail it out the same day.  Pretty cool, yet?  I have both of the extra ones, but only one of each so it will be nice to have the backups.

As for life, I haven't really done anything exciting. Life has been boring since the beach.  So, so boring. Ahhhh.


Hello again...

Sorry about not posting yesterday.  I was tired, busy, and very depressed being home from the beautiful beach.  I put away all the things I bought and washed a huge load of clothes I wore on the trip. I still need to fold and put those away.  I had to mow the front lawn when I got here as it was looking pretty shaggy.  It looks much better now.  I spent a lot of my time after getting home getting things done.  I was going to post a quick post before midnight and then didn't.  

Today, I got up at my regular time.  It was nice to wake up in my own bed.  I woke up several times during the night, but I was able to fall back to sleep so that was okay!  I wanted to wash my bed linen today, but I have another load of clothes that needing washing.  I also need to wash the dishes. AHHHH! I tried to take a picture of my two Starbucks tumblers that I got, but the pictures are dark.  I meant to go out and take the picture in natural light today, but I went to the grocery store and I was so tired, hot, and irritated when I got home I needed to cool down and cool off! :p

Here is the picture of the tumblers. I'll try to get a better picture soon.  I want to do a trip recap soon, too!

Here are photos of the tumblers I found on eBay:

The lighting on those is a bit better. The peach colored one is 120z or Tall and the White with the rainbow is 16oz or Grande.


Sunday Afternoon posting!

What a trip! I walked on the Boardwalk to the Pavilion area and beyond! :P. I got down to the first Starbucks that I pass (Bayview Resort) and I stopped in and got a frappuccino.  I drank it on their outside tables and it was delicious.  I then walked back on the Boardwalk and went to The Gay Dolphin and wandered around in there. I love that store. I got a shirt, some vintage postcards and a little bag.  I went from there across the street to I Love Sugar and got almost a pound of candy! I got everything I was looking for except one thing.  They were out of those.  I then walked to the oceanfront Starbucks. 

I got a water and a bag of chips.  I wanted to sit in for a bit so I bought the chips and the water.  It was nice to sit in a Starbucks for the first time in ages.  Being an oceanfront Starbucks made it that much better.  I enjoyed my time there and then moved on so that others might have a chance to come in and sit.

I stopped by Pier 14 and looked around. I found a little crochet manta ray. He is teal/turqoise and he is so cute!  I had to have him. I bought that and then headed back.  I stopped at 2nd Ave. Pier, but I didn't go on or in.  I came back here and took a quick cooling shower and put on clean clothes. My friend is getting ready and we are going to head out for some food soon.  Not sure where but probably fast food.  It will be yummy!  Here are a few pictures to share. I'll share more later.

Oooh ....

Do I have some news to share tomorrow. I want to share today, but I’ll be good and wait.  It will be a good thing!  I am going to enjoy it for sure! By the way, that Starbucks card I ordered was in my daily ‘informed delivery’.  I didn’t get it though. ~_~: I hate when that happens.  At least I know it is in my city! Lol

Hopefully it will come in tomorrow’s mail or in the next week at least!  I have had a busy day getting things done and I’m tired and out of sorts. I didn’t sleep well last night at all.  I don’t know what it was, but I just couldn’t sleep. Hopefully I’ll crash hard tonight! 

I can’t wait to post tomorroooooow. :p See you then my peeps!


Dull and rainy

That was the weather here today.  It was also the local election day.  They didn't give out the "I voted" stickers because of the virus and precautions, but they did let you keep the pen! They had black ballpoint stick pens.  You used it and then you could toss it or keep it. I'm a pen person, so you know I kept it! I disinfected it and added it to my collection! 

I left there and went by Starbucks but the line was so long that I didn't even stop. I just went on home! I would have done a mobile order.  They bring it out to you, but I wasn't going to make them come out in a downpour!  I love my baristas.  I am not going to do that to them.  I'll try again another day. 

I'm waiting on a single Starbucks card that I ordered on eBay and it's not here yet. I'm beginning to think it has been lost in the mail.  I hope not, but it's been eight days since it was shipped. Hopefully, it's just delayed and will be here soon.  

I have one more item that I am anxious to get, but I'm not going to talk about it until it gets here.  It's something I've wanted to find on eBay for a long time and I finally found one at a decent price.  I'll post more when it arrives.  Hopefully SOON!


Printer ink!

My printer ink came today and I am happy with it. Usually, when I get new ink, it takes running the print head cleaning cycle many, many times. I only ran it once and did a test print and it's perfect. I'm quite happy about that. It will be nice to be able to print again.  I hope to get my pen pal letters written soon.  I meant to do that today, but I got distracted by other things and didn't get around to it.  I'm not really behind, so that is good. I'm keeping up with them pretty well.  I hope to continue to do so!

I had to run to Target for one thing today.  I went in, got it, and went to check out. Normally I would have walked all over Target, but not now.  Since I was out, I stopped by the grocery store and picked up a few things I needed and then headed home.  I figured I might as well get that done while out.  That only took a few minutes.  I passed by Starbucks and I was tempted because there wasn't a huge line, but I skipped it. Next time!  I did go to the Starbucks in Target and picked up three new cards to add to my collection.  One a Father's day, one a graduation, and the last one with the Siren on it.  I'm always happy to add to my collection.


Good mail day!

Why?  Well, three different orders came! I got an adorable pencil case that I've been eyeing forever. It was out of stock for the longest time. I got a notification that it was available and I ordered it. It came today.  I also got a nice set of Starbucks cards from eBay.  All were ones I needed that I didn't have except one. Well, there were about three that I did have but they weren't 'mint' as in they had their code uncovered.  I was able to swap those out and add all these new cards to my collection.  It was 40 cards in all so I made a good contribution to my collection!   I am going to put them all in order at some point, but for now, they are all in there as I get them.

The third item I got was a cute Evernote/Moleskine notebook. It's the smaller one.  Around 3in x 5 inches.  It's black with an Evernote green ribbon bookmark, green elastic, and it has the elephant embossed with other stuff on the front. It came with one of the Moleskine slip-on pens, too!  Also, it had the code in there for 3 months of Evernote premium! YAY!  I like this size notebook for slipping into my purse.  Plus it's Moleskine and Evernote!  It's a 'smart notebook' so it has the stickers so you can scan the pages into Evernote.  Very nifty.  I can always use a new notebook, and I love pens!  The 3 months of premium just sealed the deal!

Here is the pencil case. It's a pulldown one that can be used as a pen cup.  So cute and it's beautiful!

Isn't that pretty!  I keep my most used pens in a case with my bujo. I also have a few other pens in there that aren't used as much and a small ruler, a pencil, and a ballpoint pen. Before, I just used a basic pencil case. This is cool.  I love it!
