Monday evening post

Sorry, we were out most of the day.  We left for Conway and went to the Goodwill over there and my friend went to two pawn shops.  We ate at a Sonic in Conway and it was pretty tasty.  After eating, we headed back this way.  We came back here and he went to one pawn and then we went to two Goodwills.  I found more goodies.  After that we headed back here.  I'm tired but I still want to walk on the beach and spend some time on the balcony.  I need to pack and I don't want to. :(. Here are two pictures I took while we were out.



Both of these were taken in Conway.  There are some pretty places there.  I noticed several walking rails too!


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. ^_^

Wednesday night post

We went out and were going to Sonic but we passed by Red Robin and they weren't busy so we went there.  It was delicious!  I got the sandwich I got the other night from Denny's.  Grilled chicken, cheese, bacon, and bbq. Delicious!  After that, we drove back to the Goodwill on 501.  I saw a purse there yesterday and didn't buy it and wanted to go back and get it. Sadly, it was gone. :(  We went to one fo the other Goodwill stores we went to yesterday and I got some colorful envelopes (for pen pal letters). It was a little Hallmark note set, most of the notes were used, but it looks like the majority of the envelopes are there. Yay! I like to send cute envelopes with my letters.

I took a picture of the pretty sky and my food at Red Robin.  Here you go!



I am going to take a nice beach walk later and then I'm not sure what is after that.  I hope to sleep well tonight.  I am tired.

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!

Small road trip!

I decided to take a quick road trip today.  I drove over to Reidsville, NC and went to the Salvation Army thrift store and bought a few goodies.  I was going to the Goodwill over there too, but it started raining pretty hard. I DID go eat at Pete's Burgers and More.  It's my favorite place in Reidsville, so I had to get some before heading home.  I thought I'd eat and see if the rain lessened a bit. It didn't, so I decided to head back home.  It was a quick trip, but it was fun.  It is nice to know that I have a dependable car to be able to do things like that!  I wish it hadn't been such a dreary day to do it on, though!

One of the things I bought at the Salvation Army store was a purse.  It's not a Fossil, but it caught my eye and I liked it a lot.  It's Chaps brand and it's ivory in color. It feels like leather but it's not.  It's in excellent condition.  It looks like it's never been carried or if it had, it was taken care of.  Check it out:



Surprise thrifting!

My friend and I went out of town to a new place to try today.  It was in Eden, NC so not too far away.  We ate there and then went to the Goodwill in Eden. I found a few cool things and bought them.  We then came back to Danville and decided to go to the Goodwill here too.  I found this neat guy:


He is actually a wax melt warmer that is missing his lid, but I didn't know that.  I just thought he was cute so I bought him! :). The mugs on either side were two of the items I found at Goodwill in Eden.  A coffee mug with coffee all over it and a mug that has a 1986 calendar. Very cool!

I received an item in the mail today that i ordered recently on eBay.  It's a Loot Crate exclusive Ice King statue with Goontz and several other penguins.  It's so cute! Here that is:


I want to get another one so I can keep one in the box and display one!  I'll probably do that because it's just too cute not to display. I found it when looking up Gunter stuff on eBay.  I love Ice King and I don't have any merchandise with him featured. I have a shirt he is on, but the other characters are there too. I've been wanting something Ice King so this gave me Simon and Goontz! :)

Starbucks and a recap!

I had to run out and do an errand today so I went to Starbucks on my way home and it was delicious.  I had a free drink, so I used that and i bought a cake pop, too! :P. As for my recap, well, let's do it!

On Saturday while at the beach, I walked to 17. Well, I had walked all the way across the resort to the little coffee shop they had to get some coffee. It was closed by the time I got there. BOO! So, I decided to walk to 17 and go to a beachwear store or two.  I went to I <3 MB and got a sticker for my car and a decal for a future cell phone and a cute change purse. I walked to Eagles beachwear and looked in the 'everything is 5.99 or less' section. I thought I might find a shirt I liked.  I don't usually find really nice shirts in this section, so I was surprised when I found several I liked in my size!  They had them $5.99 each or three for $12! Since I found three I liked (actually four!) I got three.  Two purple and one blue. I love purple but I didn't have any purple t-shirts. I do now! It's funny because two of the shirts are almost the same.  The blue one has the same little design on the front and a bigger one on the back.  The only difference is the color of the shirt and the color of the iron-on / decal on the shirt.  

We didn't got to any of the Goodwills while down there. We planned to do it on Sunday but didn't.  We did stop at the one in Longs SC though since we missed it coming down. (It was raining hard and we wanted to get to the beach!) I found some cute things.  I got a nice ceramic tumbler from Hallmark with pine needle branches on it.  I also got a handmade wallet, a pack of A5 ring binder address book pages, a little A5 size folio for a notepad with a pen holder, a Hallmark snowman ornament still in the packages, and a Radio Shack weather alert radio.  It works!  I was able to get a PDF of the manual online. It's in great condition and the information comes in clearly.  Very cool!

We stopped in Reidsville NC on our way back and ate at Pete's Burgers and More.  It's a favorite of mine.  After that, we went to the Reidsville Goodwill before heading home.   I found a big ceramic jack o lantern.  He has a 'lid' that is the top of the pumpkin so you can open him to put a candle in. I also found a coffee mug with Myrtle Beach on it. LOL!  Yes, I got it. My friend was nice and let me ring up my stuff with his. :) I love my Jack o' lantern.  He is a cutie!  He has a small chip in his lid, but it's hidden so it's not a big deal.W

We went to his house and he unloaded his stuff from my car and then I headed home to unload myself.  All in all it was nice trip.  Way too short, but I'd do it again anytime!  In case you are wondering, my car did great!  It's had it's first beach trip and it is soon going to have a Gunter decal and a MB sticker. :)


So, my friend got off work early today. He hadn't heard back from the dealer but decided to go anyway. We drive all the way up there and the lot is EMPTY.  The dealer is gone.  No cars, just an empty lot.  WTF?  So we call the number and it's out of service. D'oh!  There is a lot next door, so we go and look at their cars.  The guy comes out and my friend tells him that we had been looking for the lot next door and the guy says they moved.

He gives us the new address and we head there.  Nope, that isn't the place. We go back and they say that it was the correct address but the car we were looking for was not there and we still don't think that was the correct place.  He said they moved and re-branded.  I think he was full of it! We did get to visit a few Goodwill stores, so the trip wasn't totally wasted.

I found a Fossil bag and a cool Gumby mug in the Goodwill store in Roanoke.  All in all it was a frustrating day.  We drove all that way for nothing.  Oh well, the search continues.  I didn't sleep well at all last night. It was extremely late / early morning when I finally got to sleep and I woke up before my alarm at 10:30, so I'm super tired.  I hope to sleep well tonight.  

Friday evening post

Hello!  We went to three Goodwill stores and to a Tuesday Morning we've never been before. It's a big one and I found too much stuff. I took a picture of my goodies and I'll share it below.  I love the blue washi.  The cacti stampers are adorable! I love all my goodies. That stamp pad ink is gorgeous. I just hope it's true to the color on the package.


Those coffee stampers! :D It was a good haul. I love Tuesday Morning.  I'm sort of glad we don't have one where I live. LOL!
