Thrift shopping again!

I found some good things today.  I got a box of assorted envelopes for a dollar.  I needed some envelopes for pen pal letters and now I have a lot.  These are mainly big ones too.  I love them.  At another thrift store, I found a practically brand new pair of Saucony shoes.  They fit and are comfy.  My regular pair I walk in has worn out.  

At another thrift store, I found another Fossil purse!  This one is black corduroy and it's cute!  I like it.  I always look at the purses in thrift stores and this one caught my eye.  I turned it over and saw the Fossil patch on it.  It was as good as mine! :p . I also found one of those purse organizer thingees.  Here is the purse front and back:

I love finding Fossil purses at Goodwill! This is the same Goodwill that I found that black leather Fossil purse some time back. ^_^ . The purse organizer thingee is like this:

The only difference is the one I found is dark blue.  It's pretty cool and it was still in the original plastic.


Goodies!

Here are my goodies:

Spirograph, journal, stationery:

The old light thingee.  It's just like the new one except the new one is black.

My purse.  That is showing the inside of the front flap and the front of the bag itself.

The two Starbucks tumblers.  I almost didn't even look in this section. Yay!

Ouch ouch ouch

My poor head is killing me at the moment.  I have the headache from hell.  I didn't sleep well last night and then woke up early and couldn't get back to sleep.  My friend wanted to go to South Boston today and go to a pawn shop, a Goodwill, and to eat.  He asked me a few days ago if I'd like to go.  He would buy lunch and get me some things at the thrift store.  I went.  I usually find a lot of things at that particular Goodwill, but I only found a little bag with various office supplies and a pair of black flats.  I have been needing a pair of nice black flats. These look pretty much brand new, too.  They are comfy and I like them a lot. 

We ate at Dini's brothers. It's a pizza / sub place in SoBo.  We split a pizza and it was good.  When we got back to Danville, we went to the Goodwill here.  I found more goodies.  A journal, a digital camera kit, a Spirograph with all the pieces but one, some cute stationery, and two Starbucks tumblers!! They are from 2007 and they are both grande size.  The lid on one of them wasn't the right lid, but the other one's lid fit on both, and I wouldn't be using both at the same time anyway!  I couldn't pass them up for .99 each!

Oh, I also got a caramel macchiato at the McDonald's as we were leaving SoBo.  It was pretty tasty, too! I was hoping to spot some extra cases for my iPad Mini at the thrift stores. I have seen them before.  I like having a variety of cases. lol 

My Fossil canvas purse came today and it's so cute.  I'll have to do another post after this and do a picture post of some of today's goodies. I would do it with this post, but I'm sitting under the hair bonnet hair dryer so it's not possible at the moment. I took several pictures of the Starbucks tumblers, but I haven't taken one of the purse yet.  It's khaki colored canvas and it has a cute yellow floral interior.  It's a small bag, but it holds everything I need.  The front zipper pocket can be used as a wallet if you want.  I like it.  I'll post my haul in a bit after my hair is dry.  The heat from the dryer is very soothing to my painful head!

Another thing I needed came in today's mail.  My closet light went out recently.  To turn it on and off, you pull a string from the light bulb adapter thingee.  My adapter thingee quit working so I ordered one from Amazon. It's nice to have light in my closet again. I had tried one of those tap lights, but it wasn't nearly enough light.  I am glad to have this fixed again.

Now, I just need to finish drying my hair and I'll post some of my goodies. :)


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! ^___^


We're here!

We got here around 3 and checked in.  An hour after that we were in the room and unpacked.  We had to go on a crazy hunt for drink machines.  We kept trying to get Mountain Dew and it kept giving us Pepsi! :(  Once it gave us Dr. Pepper and then a Sunkist Orange! LOL!  We have a lot of Pepsi now.  Phooey.  I so wanted a Dew.  I'll get one if we go out later!

It's beautiful here.  I haven't taken a lot of pictures because of there being so many people on the beach.  I will take a lot more pictures during the week.  I will share one with you now, though:

I want to get some great shots for phone wallpaper.  We are going to order a pizza and eat that and then see what we are going to do after that.  I'm so ready.  I might post again later tonight, We'll see!  Oh! We stopped in Longs SC and went to the Goodwill there.  I got a cute pair of brand new shorts with the tags still on them and a little notebook.  You know how I am with notebooks. LOL 

My new little crossbody purse was perfect.  I carry a trip journal with me on trips and it fits in there perfectly.  I could probably get my Bujo in there too if I wanted.  We are probably going to order pizza from Pizza Hut as they are having a special deal of a 2 topping pizza for $7.99!  Whoo hoo baby! LOL!


Full Friday...

The street was wet when I got up today and it had rained, but it wasn't raining at the time I usually go for my walk, so I decided to go.  I made it without getting wet.  It did rain for a few minutes but it wasn't hard and it wasn't very long.  I only had to use my umbrella about 3 minutes.  I got home and cooled off.  I then went to the grocery store to get my monthly groceries.  It got really overcast while I was in there and I was just hoping I could get home and get my groceries in before it rained again.  I made it!  I got all my things and put away.  I rested for a bit and then my friend picked me up.  We went to South Boston to the Goodwill and to Dini's Brother's pizza.  I tried their philly cheesesteak.  It was pretty good, but their pizza is better!

At Goodwill, I got Harry Potter and the Cursed Child for $2!  I also got a Under Armour fitness backpack.  I use a fitness backpack every time I walk and they wear out eventually.  This looked brand new so I got it to have on hand when mine dies.  My current one is Everlast and I got it at Kmart.  We don't have a Kmart anymore. :(

I also got a binder, a coffee mug, and a cute stencil set.  It's a 'kiddie' type, but there are some good stencils in the set that I can use in my bujo!  I love stencils.  After we got back to the city and he dropped me off, I went to get gas for my car and get a few things I needed.  My first of the month necessities.  The Family Dollar I went in had these big jar candles that were $5.  The eucalyptus mint one smells JUST LIKE the $20 ones that Bath and Body Works used to sell! I had to buy one.  I'm burning it now and it smells amazing!

One last thing to add about the day.  I didn't mention this earlier, but I won another Fossil purse on ebay last week.  I got it today.  It's gorgeous!  It's one I saw in 2011 in a Fossil catalog.  It's a satchel bag and it's coral  and it's gorgeous.  The picture does not do it justice!

The second one is closest to the actual color.  If it is sunny tomorrow, I'll take some pictures outside.


Useless today!

Yeah, totally useless. I didn't walk, I didn't workout, I didn't do anything.  Phooey!  I thought it was going pour rain and storm during my walk time. It ended up not doing anything. ~_~;  It did rain this evening, but that was much later.  Hopefully tomorrow I will get in my walk and my workouts.  I really hate missing them.  I was going to walk later this evening, but a friend and I went out for a bit and it was too late when I got home to get in a walk before dark.

We went to Goodwill and I got an old Monopoly set.  I collect Monopoly sets.  I also got a cute little organizer thingee that I saw the last time I was in there.  I was glad it was still there! It's now mine and on my wall.  It's cute!

I got both of these for $5 and change.  Not bad.  The Monopoly set is complete, too! I'm pretty sure I had this acutal one when I was a child, but I don't know what happened to it.  I was happy to see this.  I tend to buy any Monopoly sets I see in thrift stores.  I like to give them a good home. ^_^


And again!

Today my walk was mainly overcast.  The sun came out near the end of my walk and it got so hot.  It was not fun!  I got home and relaxed. I didn't do my workouts.  Oops.  I might do them after posting this.  I don't like to skip them.  It DID rain today though. My friend texted and said he wanted to go to Roma.  It's a local pizza place that we went to for the first time last month. It's good!  I was actually thinking about that place today and then he texts and says he is going and I'm welcome to go too. Yay!

While we were in there it began POURING rain.  It was coming down in curtains.  Luckily, it cleared up before we left.  We went to Goodwill after that.  I'm looking for a little pieces of furniture for my room.  I didn't find what I was looking for, but I found another box of goodies.  It was twice the size of the box I got last time and it was only a dollar more.  I got all it for 3.99. There were some good things in there, too!  There were three Texas Instruments graphing calculators, some scissors, some mini notebooks, and so much more.  Here is a picture of the box as I bought it and then all the stuff laid out on the bed. Not bad for $4!

No, still no word. :(

I didn't hear anything again today.  I guess it's going to be next week before I get the shipping notification. I'm not very happy about that.  I have been wanting a 'new' Mac for a while and the extra wait is annoying the hell out of me.  I was so annoyed yesterday when I posted, that I forgot to post the item I got at Goodwill yesterday.  There was a little plastic basket in the office supplies section. It had a ton of stuff in it by the feel and it was marked at $3.  I got it and it was full of stuff.  Well worth more than $3!  There were rulers, single hole punches,crayons, pencils, markers, notepads, index card, and so much more.  Here is the picture of it before I opened it and everything laid out on my bed.  All in all a good haul for $3~

One pair of the scissors is a crafting pair.  It's got the cool cutting edges.  Everything is neat.  The little wooden box had a little glass 'window' in it and I was able to take the paper out and customize it.  It's now a Starbucks box. :p


Saturday shenanigans....

So, I was dressed and ready to go for my walk. My friend had asked me early if I wanted to ride with him to Reidsville.  I said, no, I better walk.  He texted me again and asked just as I was leaving.  I caved. :P  I rode with him to Reidsville.  We went to a couple of thrift stores.  We ate over there and went to Eden to a Goodwill and then Martinsville to another Goodwill! LOL!  I ended the day with three new coffee cups, another zipper case, a spiralizer, an adorable little ceramic jack o lantern, a pair of shorts, and a Dell crossword puzzle book.  My friend got it all for me. Yay!  The coffee cups are cool.  One is a mug that has the word cappucino all over it.  There is a taller polka dot cup, and a big Starbucks mug. Whee!  

We came back to town and he dropped me off so he could go home and change. I changed shoes and put on my belt bag and got my backpack.  We headed to the Riverwalk trail.  Parts of it were under water!  I took a few pictures to show how it was.  We did walk some, but not as much as we usually do because of the water.

 

Yes, I did my workouts today, too! I'm going to relax with my Kindle until bedtime. I haven't slept well lately and I want to change that tonight!
