Good mail day!

I got my washi today and it's so pretty!  I also got my pen loop for my Leuchtturm.  My purse still hasn't shipped. Boo!  Here is some pictures of today's goodies:

The Starbucks cup didn't come in the mail. I went over there for that. :P . I played Starbucks for Life as I usually do. I won a bunch of stars and a I even won a free bakery item.  The coupon was running out today, so I went over there and got a cookie.  I also got a cascara latte while I was there.  They are almost out of cascara syrup.  Boo!  I'll miss it.  Hopefully they'd bring it back again.  


Hello

It wasn't sunny today, but it was warm.  It was around 60! It was pretty nice for walking.  I got in my walk and I was able to stop by the dollar store and get a few things I needed.  I also found a great smelling candle for .30!  It was in the holiday markdown stuff.  I wonder if they have any more. It smells so good. It's called Frosted Fir and smells like a fresh tree. 

I needed some tape, and I was hoping there would be some in the holiday markdown section, but no go. I got some in the regular section though, so that was okay.  I also got a package of copy paper as I was completely out.  Some of the pen pal letters I wrote last week were on green paper because I was out of my regular white sheets.

I didn't do much when I got home. I washed my hair and my bed linen. I've had a really bad headache, so doing other things was not an option.  I mainly just sat around. I played some Bingo on my iPad and watched The Simpsons on FXNow.  I love watching the episodes, but the commercials are driving me nuts.  They are mainly the same ones over and over and they are annoying as hell!  I just mute them when they come on!

Tomorrow, I should be receiving a pen loop for my Leuchtturm bullet journal and a new set of washi. It's from my favorite brand/company of washi. Molshine.  I love their washi.  This set is 10 rolls, I think.  It's so pretty from the pictures. The thing about their washi, is it's always better looking in person than in pictures. I love their washi!  I'll post pictures tomorrow.  

Oh! I also found another Fossil purse on ebay. ^^;;;;; I saw it, watched it, and then bought it all within five minutes. lol . I hope I love it in person as much as I did on the site.  That hasn't shipped yet, so I'm not sure when I'll get it.


Whoo!

I just hit 6538 at a word count!  Day three of NaNo and I'm already at 6500! Go me.  I actually could have written more tonight, but I have been gone and busy for most of the day so I have a few things I need to do before bed.  I figured where I stopped was a great place to stop for tonight.  I did that and then updated my count.  I got the email that I'd hit 5000 word badge. Yay!

I walked today and it was good to get back to it.  As I was coming back into my neighborhood, my friend pulled over and said, "Hop in, we are going to Starbucks!"   I told them I needed to go home first.  They told me to hop in and they'd carry me.  I said, nope, I'm going to finish my walk! LOL! I did and was able to use the bathroom and grab my purse.  I didn't really want to go to Starbucks right then, but I'm ALWAYS asking them to go so it would be hilarious if I said, nope! :P

We went and I got another caramel brulee.  So good!  My friend tried one too.  She said she liked it and then she didn't like it!  Sheesh!  Oh well, hers was a Venti and mine was a tall.  They were both holiday cups, so I got her to give me hers after she drank it. :p . I went to her house to see all her animals.  I had to love on Cocoa and I even got to see my favorite cat, the demon kitty! <3 . My friend I went to eat lunch together as we don't get to go do stuff together much.  She works until 6:30 on most days. When she has a day off, she is usually busy running errands for her mom, so today we were able to just go out and enjoy lunch.  We ate at one of the local Mexican restaurants.  It's one of my favorites.  I haven't been in ages.  My other friend, the one I go out and eat with all the time, doesn't like Mexican, Chinese, or other good ethnic food, so I was glad to go!  

I finally got home and then relaxed for a little bit.  Being around people stresses me out.  I got myself together and then wrote myself a list and went to the grocery store.  I got a lot of goodies, but not nearly as much as I wanted to.  My favorite frozen dinners were on sale.  Two for five dollars and if you buy two, you get one free.  So technically three for five.  I was planning on getting a LOT of them.  They had a total of three. ~_~; I got those though!  I also got creamer and then remembered I hadn't gotten coffee.  That wouldn't do!  The store went through a remodel a few months back and I still don't know where anything is. lol I totally missed the coffee on my first trip through.  It used to be on the very first aisle!  So, I got groceries, I brought them home and put them away.  I did a few things I needed to do.  I washed a ton of dishes and then ate some supper.  After that, I sat down to write.  I got over 2000 words written tonight so I was happy about that.  I just have my French to do online and then I will get off of here and get the other things done that need doing. ^_^


Saturday Survival! :p

So, it was nice an sunny when I got up today.  I nice change from yesterday.  I went for my walk and it was quite nice.  It was in the low 60's so it wasn't cold and it wasn't hot.  Just perfect!  I came home and relaxed a bit.  I saw where my new glasses were to be delivered today. Yay! I didn't think they were coming until Monday.  Back earlier this year when I bought new glasses to replace the ones I broke, I wanted a pair just like the ones I had.  They are just about my favorite glasses ever.  I tried several times and they were always out of stock.  I was afraid they'd been discontinued, but I still had hope.  The other day on a whim, I checked my old orders on Zenni and instead of 'reorder' by that pair being greyed out, it was clickable.  I clicked on it and I was able to order a pair of my favorites.  Yay! I can't wait until tomorrow to wear them.  I always(even when it's the same prescription)  save a new pair of glasses until I wake up the next day so that my eyes are not having the adjust from the old pair to the new pair.  The ones I have now will be kept as a backup pair.  It will be good to have a backup pair.  As I'm writing this, I feel as if I've posted about this earlier in my blog.  If so, sorry!

I finished another book today and started on yet another. LOL . I am on a roll.  I read a book about Zodiac.  I've always been fascinated by the Zodiac killings.  It's about a guy who thinks his dad was Zodiac.  Pretty compelling and interesting read.  I read it pretty damn quick!  I started on another true crime book.  I discovered Hoopla through my local library and there are so many true crime books available!  I can't use my Kindle for them, but I can read on my phone or my tablet.  I don't really like the way the books load on the tablet, but hey, it's free books to read!  The library has books on Overdrive . which I can use with my Kindle, but they have a very limited selection of true crime.  I was amazed at how much stuff popped up on Hoopla.  If I ever get an Amazon Fire, I can read on that.  I think I would like that. I had a Fire for a few days before I realized I couldn't load Google Play on it.  The screen was nice.  I wouldn't mine having one for reading on Hoopla.  I prefer reading ebooks on my Kindle because the screen looks more like the page of an actual book.

So, after my walk, I've mainly spent my Saturday reading.  I am currently cooking dinner.  I decided I wanted something different tonight, so I put the last few frozen chicken breasts in the oven to cook.  I should have put them in earlier, but oh well!  They are marinated in honey teriyaki sauce.  Yum! I can't wait to dig in.  I'll cook some rice to go with them and have a delicious meal!

I re-read the end of my book two today.  I sort of left it hanging.  It seems like there could have been more.  I'm trying to decide if I want to add a few lines to it and then start fresh with book three.  The end of book two has given me the idea for the main part of book three.  I think I could leave book two where I did, but I am not sure.  Decisions, decisions!  I need to hurry up with them.  NaNo starts in 5 days. AHHHHH!

 


Oh boy....

I should have checked my bank balance before going out tonight.  I went to Hobby Lobby to get one thing.  Some pages for my small 365 planner.  They only have a limited selection of the small planner stuff.  I got one thing of that.  Unfortunately, I had to see a bunch of other things. ^^;  I found a lot of marked down washi!  I found two two packs that were $1.24 each.  I got those, I also saw a pack of five or six of the micro mini washi for the same price.  I got those too. I also found a huge $20 tube of washi marked down to $5.  I got that too. I got a few other little things.  I found some mark down stickers, some little mini notebooks for .74!  I also found some traveler's notebook refills.  I shouldn't have gotten all that stuff.  Oh well, too late now. ^^;

 


Wednesday, yes?

Yes, I think it is.  I haven't slept worth a damn lately and I've had a low grade migraine for days.  I need to get myself some sleep and some caffeine. :p . My iPod touch case came today.  I did have a case on my iPod touch, but it got a crack in it.  I used washi tape to hold it together until I could order a replacement.  The one I had I got on Amazon and was going to order another just like it.  They are not longer available, so I checked ebay since I had some cash in my Paypal account.  I found a cute one that is black and pink for $3 shipped.  It came today and it's nice.  I think the other one did well to hold up so long.  I had it for four years.  

 

 


Monday Madness FTW! :p

Sorry about that short post yesterday.  I wasn't near the Mac and I posted with my phone.  I really didn't want to post a lot that way but I wanted to get my post in.  So, today I went for my usual walk and came back and cooled off.  I then went back out to walk to the post office!  I had a stack of pen pal letters.  My friend picked me up at the post office and I rode with him on an errand and then he dropped me home.  When I got home, my packages were here.  No, not the MBP. :(  I did get the pretty Fossil wallet, my 12 Fitbit bands, and my washi.  Everything is so pretty!  The Fossil wallet is perfect for my needs.  It holds everything I need and it takes up less space!

The bands are all so pretty.  I have tried on the lime green, the blue, and now I'm wear the hot pink one. LOL  I was able to store them in some roll up pencil cases I got on Amazon some time ago.  They are all nice quality.  The washi is gorgeous!  It's even prettier in person than it was on the site.  A bonus item?  Yes! One of the regular rolls had a slim roll with it. Yay!  I love this particular brand of washi. It's great quality and it's always pretty!  It was a good mail day.  Tomorrow, my MBP should be here.  I am so ready for it!  I'll do a whole post about it tomorrow, I'm sure!

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!

 


Last full day. :(

Today is our last full day here.  We check out and head out in the morning unfortunately.  I slept a little longer today than yesterday.  I got up and walked.  I stopped at a McDonald's and got a couple of biscuits for my breakfast and then walked to Starbucks to get a cascara latte.  ^_^  It was delicious.  I was able to get a spot to sit too, so that was great.  I stayed there long enough to drink my coffee and then walked on.  I went to Tuesday Morning.  I got two rolls of cute washi, some stickers, and metal card case holder with JFK on it.  As in JFK airport.  They also had LHA for London's Heathrow airport.  I thought they looked cool.  I got the JFK one because I'm a Kennedy fan.

I left there and headed back towards the hotel.  I found the perfect coffee mug in a King's beachwear store.  I had been looking at coffee cups in every beach store I went in.  This one was cheaper than the others I'd liked and so cute.  Unfortunately it had a chip and a crack. :(  I didn't get it.  It was the only one they had, too.  I was so sad.  I went in several other beachwear stores around there, but none of them had it either.

I finally got back to the room and relaxed a bit.  I went to the lobby and filled my tumbler with coffee.  I went to sit on the balcony for a bit, but then decided to go out on the beach.  I carried my beach towel, my coffee, and my backpack.  I had my trip journal and my bujo in my backpack.  I sat on the beach for a while and just enjoyed it.  I took pictures.  I'll share a few with you here:

It's been a nice little trip, but it's gone by way too fast.  We are heading out for dinner in a bit.  Not sure where we are going to eat yet.  


So busy!~

It has been an incredibly busy day for me.  I've been gone almost all day!  I went for my walk and it was COLD.  Well, the temperature was around forty, but when the wind blew it was freezing!  I got my walk in and came home and had a cup of coffee and a quick snack and then went to Family Dollar.  I got my essentials for the month and then headed to the grocery store.  I spend WAY too much in there and I forgot a couple of items.  I brought those home and put them away.  That was a job in itself!  I then went by my friend's house to see something he got in the mail.  He and I went to eat and then hit Goodwill.  I found a brand new hoodie that has Myrtle Beach on it. ^___^  It is the same brand as the hoodies I buy at the beachwear stores.  I swear it looks like it's never been worn. I got it for $5!  My friend found a fleece pullover half zip hoodie with Myrtle Beach on it and he got that for me.  I got two cool MB shirts and I didn't even leave town. :P  I also found a cute set of Halloween stampers for .99.  They were originally a $3 item at the Target dollar spot.   I love stamps and I love halloween!

I dropped him off and then came home.  My other friend had wanted to do something earlier, so I called her to see if she wanted to go to Starbucks.  She drove us to Target where I spent too much money!  I got a better bag for my bujo.  This one is perfect.  It's actually a make up bag like the one I bought on Amazon, but this one is a little bigger, with better handles, and it's just great.  I love it.  I can use the one I got on Amazon for something else.  I'll do a picture of the bag perhaps tomorrow.  I also got two cute rolls of washi in the dollar spot, a set of adorbs sticky notes, also from the dollar spot!  I got a little draw string bag.... yes, dollar spot. :P  I also got a four pack of the rolling wite out.  The two pack is 2.99 and they had the four pack on sale for 4.99 so I grabbed it.  I use it a lot!  I correct things in my checkbook and I also use it for envelopes when I make a mistake on the address.  It's also good for fixing goof in the bullet journal!  I got all that and I found a compact of pressed powder that didn't cost ten dollars!  I only use powder every now and then because my face gets really red.  I haven't used make up in years!  

After we left Target, we went by Starbucks.  I ran in and got a Venti cascara latte and grabbed two of the Blonde sleeves to add to my collection.  I came home and did my workouts.  I still have a lot to do before bed and it's almost 11.  Yikes!  I need a few more hours to add to this day!  Wow, I didn't plan to write this much today.  Good for me! ^__^
