10 Things About Me

1. I am in love with Instagram and could spend hours looking at galleries.
Here's the link to mine.

2. I hate snakes on so many levels.

3. I love to cook but don't really have the time or the energy to do it every night like I wished

4. I have the best girlfriends in the world and they have been with me thru a lot of stuff. 
Shout outs to Missy, Peggy, Windy I love ya'll!!

The World's Best Girlfriends

5. I love to make things, if I see it in a store I can come home and make it cheaper. If not I stalk it until it goes on clearance. Like this shirt that I got for cheap.

Blue Polka Dot Top From Forever 21

6. I am way to organized in some areas of my life and a bit of a hoarder in others. Take your pick.

7. Music makes my world go round, without it I would be lost.

8. I am a dish hoarder. I love cute little dishes and have way to many.

9. I will get in my car and just take a ride to wherever, no plan or no destination, music wide open and me singing. This clears my head sometimes. Other times I call those girlfriends I talked about back at #4

10. I love quotes! I can read a bunch that I keep on hand and just have myself a good time.
This is who I am! Love me or not I can't change any of this.

Southern Firefly Candle Co.

I have been seeing in my Instagram and Facebook feeds a lot about

 Southern Firefly Candle Co. so I decided it was time to try for myself. 

I went to the website and they have lots of fragrances to choose from and  I picked the North Carolina 

candle tin with Sea Salt & Oak scents.

Southern Firefly Candle

This is a 6.2 oz tin with 20 hrs burn time

It cost $12 plus shipping

Southern Firefly Candle

Love the packaging

See the two cotton wicks

Southern Firefly Candle

I have been burning it at my desk for a while now and the smell is starting to fill the room

It is not over powering at all but, just enough to add something special to the air.

All the candles are made with soy wax, double cotton wicks and no dyes or additives.

The candle fits into the lid so it is easy to store and reuse time and time again. 

I see myself ordering more of these candles in the future.

If you want on for yourself head over to Southern Firefly Candle.

Blockade Runner Hotel in North Myrtle Beach- Review

My family booked our spring break trip to the Blockade Runner Hotel in North Myrtle Beach.

 I did the usual and went online and read some reviews and saw they were great, 

but still I was skeptical. I can handle a bad place if I am all alone(which never happens) but not when 

the kids are with me I like to have higher standards. 

You know no roaches, nasty room and nice staff ( a girl has to have some standards)

For years now I have passed the Blockade Runner as I traveled the short distance between Cherry 

Grove and the Ocean Drive sections of North Myrtle Beach and

 I always thought what a sweet looking place.

 The outside is painted the prettiest shade of blue with pink accents and old style block work. 

It made my heart sing. 

Blockade Runner Motor Inn

This is the front of the building pic at night and as you can see its and older style place but just as 

comfortable as the newer high rises that dot the beach front.

Loved the old style block work that sheltered the open hallways to the rooms. 

All rooms at The Blockade Runner are ocean front and with only 5 floors it's a great view from any of 

floor that you chose.

Lobby of Blockade Runner

The lobby had a nice beach feel about it with wicker furniture, nautical decor and music playing. 

I really just thought about staying here it was so relaxing.

Coral color doors at Blockade Runner

You can't really tell the color from this pic but our room door was a pink/coral color and

guess what?? It used a real key. No key card but a real key!! 

Sunrise on the beach

This is sunrise shot right of our 3rd floor balcony.

Beach Front

The Blockade Runner has now been added to our list of places to stay. 

It is not the most expensive but, certainly not the cheapest in town.

 The rooms were nice and very clean and comfortable.

I didn't get a pic of our room cause as soon as the door opened we started piling our bags inside. 

We had a 2 King efficiency with a full size fridge, stove/oven and sink with pots, pans and silverware.

2 tables for eating and a nice size desk

The decor was fresh and updated and in this decade.

 I love vintage things but vintage hotel furniture, not so much. 

A nice oceanfront balcony with chairs and tables 

for just sitting and enjoy the view and the sound of waves crashing.

The staff was very nice and helpful when needed.

If you are looking for a 5 star hotel with room service and all the bells and whistles, 

this is not the place for you.

If you are looking for comfort, great location to shopping and restaurants then this is for you. 

I am including a link to the website here.

Happy Travels!!

Sandy Beach Sunday

I love Sunday's! 

It has always been a day for me to reflect on the past, present and the future and this

be enjoy these scenes and many more over the next week.

Turntable Bridge entering the beach

Hello Beautiful!!

SC Palm Tree

A random Palm tree. I wish we could grow these in NC.

Sunrise over the ocean

I love getting up early to see the sunrise over the ocean. It really is a reminder that God is great.

So enjoy your Sunday!

 Do you have any traditions for Sunday's in your family?

When I am home I go to my parents and make dinner and

 I love doing that and its always nice to be with my family. 

But today, I will just relax and try to clear my head of some stuff that needs to be gone.
