Starbucks Tumblers Feed

Yet another....

You won't believe this but guess what we did tonight?  We went back to Reidsville! No, seriously!  We went and ate at Carmela's. I got the fettuccine alfredo and it was sooooo good.  They had a special on pizzas so he bought us both one to go!  Why? Well, we are under a bad winter storm warning.  Lots of ice is expected. The last storm over the weekend caused many people to be without power here in the city.  Luckily, we both got through that with no outages, but we are probably going to have them this time.  I have put supplies in my room and I'm ready!  I have everything I need except a can opener. LOL! I forgot to add that to my stash. I figured it would be warmer to just stay in here and put a towel under the door and try to keep warm in here.  (If there is no power)  I brought supplies and stuff and I'm about to charge up my jump box so it will be fully charged to charge my phone and my MacBook Pro!  I have candles set aside, snacks, Sterno, and everything I need.  I remembered something after I posted last night.  I don't need a lot of ice cubes, I have a bunch of those ice 'bricks' I  can put them in a cooler and keep things cool is need be!  I wish I had been able to go out and hunt down one of my hard-sided coolers, but I never got around to it.  I think I'm prepared.

As for thrifting, we did! We got a late start, so no Salvation Army store, but we did hit Goodwill and I got some great stuff! I found a Starbucks tumbler (cold cup 16oz) and it still has the straw!  I found two Cricut items, one is a package of cutting pads/mats.  I can use those in regular crafting.  They also had a Cricut accessories kit.  It had a lot of items AND a paper cutter.  My old paper cutter's blade needs replacing and the blade for it coats more than this entire set!  This Cricut accessory set retails for $50! I got it for $2.99. SCORE!  I mainly wanted it for the cutter, but I would like to get a Cricut one day, so the rest will be kept safe in case I do!  I also found a wallet I liked and a laptop bag that is big enough for my MacBook Pro 15".  It's a Victorinox brand and it's sturdy! I was going to pass on it but it was only $1.99 and I couldn't beat that deal. It had the padded section for the laptop and it has an organizer section, too.  It's pretty nice.  It has been well used, but it's in great shape.  I love all the compartments.  Now I have a choice between it and my backpack laptop bag!  I just looked at it again and I keep finding compartments I didn't know it had! :p 

Oh! I forgot one more thing.  I found some Corelle dinner plates. I love these things as they are very difficult to break and I had wanted to buy a set of them or just some plates to add my set.  I am missing a few.  The individual plates are pretty expensive.  They had eight plates cellophaned together for $3.99! The pattern is very cute, too and I love them.  I love Corelle because they are sturdy, almost unbreakable, and they last FOREVER. It was a great thrifting trip! I will have an entire set of these and the other set of mine.  They had the matching saucers, too but I didn't get them.  If they still have the when we get back, I'll get those too.  I was not leaving without those plates!  I love thrifting!

After we left Goodwill, we ran by Pete's so my friend could get ice cream.  I had noticed last night that the menu said coffee, hot chocolate, and cappuccino.  Well, I got a cappuccino and it was delicious! :p After that, we headed back here.  I finished getting my supplies together and now I'm writing this.  I need to do my French lesson and I want to write a little more.  I may not as it's so late. I wrote a little over 1300 words, so that isn't too bad!  Even if I don't have power tomorrow, hopefully, I'll still have data on my phone so I'll try to post.  That year that the hurricane came through and I was out of power for over 24 hours, my data went screwy too! Boo on that! 

Here are the pictures of the cup, bag, and plates.

I'm glad we went, we might not get to go again for awhile!


Another thrift trip! :p

My friend texted me today and said he wanted to go to Pete's in Reidsville, so we did.  I found some vintage Hallmark boxed cards at the Salvation Army store.  We made it in time to go this time! :)  At Goodwill, I got a sleep mask, a small Starbucks tumbler, and a cute pink desk lamp.  The lamp is very cute and it's very bright!  I  love it.  It's a nice size too.  It takes up less space on my desk than my old desk lamp.  Look at how cute it is:

PXL_20210217_002234996.MP

It has a USB port on the side, too!  I like all of my finds.  The sun actually came out today. After days of rain and ice and just general yuck, that was nice! Of course, we are supposed to have more winter weather this week.  I am going to put together a kit tomorrow in case I lose power.  I have some Sterno on the way, I have my Sterno 'stoves' out and ready.  I am going to put together that with candles, various foods that don't need to be cooked, extra blankets, etc.  I also have the jump box that has ports on it to charge things.  This way I can at least have my phone and laptop charged if need be. I also am making some ice cubes to fill a cooler. I probably won't have enough to fill a cooler by the time I need it, but I'll have some ice, so I'll be good. I would go to the store tomorrow and get a few more things but I heard that the stores here insane today from two different people.  I have enough! lol

 


Thrifting and an apology

I meant to write in here last night and it wasn't until right after midnight that I remembered I hadn't done it.  Oops!  The whole day was weird yesterday. First I thought it was Wednesday. I had to look at my phone to confirm that it was, in fact, Tuesday!  Then, later, I thought it was the weekend. I really need to start getting more sleep! Ah!  

My friend texted me today and mentioned going to Reidsville to eat at Pete's.  We went later than usual, so we only got to go to the Goodwill and not the Salvation Army store.  I found several great things tonight.  I got a Starbucks VIA mixer tumbler, a metal jack o lantern sign thing, a pink over the door thing with hooks for hanging things, a little plastic storage container, a nice pencil bag (new with tags!), and an ice towel. I was new too.  Oh, I also got a clock radio.  It's a GE brand and it's in pretty nice condition, with only a few scratches.  It works well and that is the important thing.  The display is green like my bedside radio.  It also picks up my favorite Classical music station and it sounds great. Very nice!  

My friend found another GPS! This one was cheaper than the one he gave me and it's newer! He was pleased because all of his are older ones.  This was a nice find for him.  I am still hoping to be able to do an update on mine.  I'll try again later.  Since we took my car this time and the last time we went to Reidsville, he topped off my gas tank for me when we got back in town.  That was nice. 

My replacement hard drive is being shipped soon!  I hope to get it so I can backup stuff again. I'd like to be able to give my friend his drive back.  They haven't started to try to recover my old drive yet. They could take a while. I'm happy they are sending the replacement in the meantime!

 

 


Starbucks on a Sunday!

Yes, you know where I went today! :p. I went to Starbucks and I went inside to see if I could get a few more cards. I got some and then found a mug I liked.  There was a tumbler the other day that I wanted, but of course, it was long gone! The other one like it that I was considering was gone too!  Their stuff is 30% off so people probably bought them for gifts. I did pick out a cute mug (no handle) with a lid.  It says it's 8oz, but it looks like it would hold more. I think it will without the lid.  I'll test it out by brewing some coffee later!  I got a grande peppermint mocha.  I ordered a grande peppermint white mocha.  This is the third time I've gotten a PW instead of a PWM. :(. They were BUSY and there were a lot of people waiting to order and a lot of people waiting on their drinks, so I wasn't going to mess that up by asking for a re-do. I drank it. I didn't enjoy it as I should have, but I wasn't going to inconvenience a whole store of people!  Oh well, hopefully, next time it will be right! The mug is very cute and I love it.  Here is a picture I took:

PXL_20201220_185910664.MP

I should have put the mug up there too. Oh well!  I am currently sitting under the hair bonnet dryer.  I got my dishes washed, my hair washed, my bed linen washed, and I'm now relaxing for a few minutes.  My bed linen is currently in the dryer.  It was too cold for me to sit with a wet head even in my turby thingee.  I decided to get out the dryer.  I already did my weekly backup too.  Oh! I ran by Office Max while I was out and picked up a package of the card sleeves that I use to keep my cards in.  I also did my daily Zeeops mission for Munzee while out.  Now, I'm just going to sit and relax for a while.  I just put the bed linen in to dry before I came to start drying my hair, so that is going to be awhile.  I want to get a few more things done in my 2021 bujo and I want to write some on my story. I did write a few words before posting this. 411 words to be exact. I'd like to get more done.  


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!

PXL_20200912_211936345.MP

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.  

 


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.


Thursday morning post

Hello there!  It is nice and hot today at Myrtle Beach! The weather last night said it was supposed to be raining this morning, but it is definitely NOT raining!  I am not complaining one bit.  I was going to post this from the balcony, but it's hot as hell out there and I could barely see the screen. :p

I came in and I am not in airconditioned comfort but I can still see that beautiful ocean! It's definitely a lovely day and a big contrast to yesterday!  I am not sure exactly what I'm going to do today.  Walk or relax or...?  We'll see!  Right now I'm cooling off.  

I took three pictures today to share. Two of the ocean and one of my chair with my Macbook Pro and Starbucks tumbler of coffee.  Sadly it's room coffee and not Starbucks coffee, but you make do! :P

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.
