Visiting Orangeburg South Carolina

On February 28th we took a trip to my husband's hometown of Orangeburg, South Carolina. Before we got there, we stopped at Waffle House in North Carolina. It was the first time that I ever went to a Waffle House. The staff was friendly and service was good. The food was excellent. My daughter had a Peanut Butter Waffle, which I had never heard of, but it was delicious.

Coffee to go :)
Once we got to South Carolina, we stopped at South of the Border. It was raining so we didn't stay too long.

In Orangeburg, there were Palm Trees all down the main street. The weather was beautiful. It was a nice break from the cold weather in Philly.

The first person we visited was my husband's best friend. He gave us some apple flavored Moonshine.

We passed Captain D's. I haven't been there since I was a kid. There's no Captain D's in Philly.

We did stop at Orange Mall to look around. It's rather small, but so is the town.

After we checked in at my in-laws house. The girls played a game of basketball.

Meanwhile, the boys did this...I don't know why....

Later on we tried to go to Apple Bees for Dinner. The wait took forever. Then, they put so many people in front of us that I was getting irritated. So, we left and went to Ryan's. Which is a buffet. I enjoyed that much more than Apple Bees. I can eat Apple Bees in Philly. I don't even get why like, everyone in town was lined up at Apple Bees, when the Buffet was right next to it. The buffet is all you can eat.

On the way back we picked up this stuff called Country Pudding. I didn't eat it until I got home. I'd never had it before. It tastes like spicy scrapple with rice in it. That's the best way to describe it. If you don't know what scrapple tastes like, I really don't know how to explain it, but it's good.

This was a short trip, and we didn't really get to tour the town. My husband had to handle some family business over that weekend. I do plan to visit again, and maybe on the next trip stop in Columbia.

On the way back, there was a Cracker Barrel in North Carolina that we went to. The service was great there too. I have to just say that the North Carolina waitresses that we had at both Waffle House and Cracker Barrel were so good at their job that they defined the words, "Southern Hospitality," (for me).

Nine Easy to use Apps for Small Cash Advances

Photo by Yan Krukov   Cash Advance apps offer people the ability to borrow small amounts of money in the form of cash advances. Some may have additional features, such as credit-building, saving and budgeting tools, and bank accounts. Most require a monthly membership fee and/or service fees that will be deducted from your account at the same time as your advance repayment. You will need to have a bank account with direct deposit from your employer in order to use these apps. Here is a list of nine, no hassle, Cash Advance apps you can use to get from pay check to pay check. Before I list them, I want to advise against using these apps unless it is an emergency. These should only be used every once in a while. If you are having problems getting from paycheck to paycheck, there is likely a bigger issue at hand. I recommend going over your income and expenses and watching your spending, or getting a second job. Click here for the budgeting app that I use and how it

How to Cheat without Getting Caught (What I've Learned from Men)

I remember being cheated on. I remember catching him red handed and listening as he denied the whole thing. I remember wondering if the other woman knew he was married. Odds are, she probably did. I didn't understand it and the truth is, I didn't need to. I just needed to remove myself from the situation. My ex was careless in his cheating. After my experience I began watching how men & women cheat. Cousins, friends, co-workers - it seems that everyone has a "Sneaky Link" or a "Secret Bae." And although the memes would have you thinking otherwise, it's not cute. But still, it's interesting. So here are some of the best tips I've learned on how to cheat without getting caught:  1. Let the person you are cheating with know that you are already married, or in a relationship. Have this conversation with the person from the beginning so they know their role, and so that you can establish boundaries. Be clear that you will not be leaving your spou

He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not

What to do when you're feeling confused. Photo by Felipe Cespedes Love is not a decision. Love is a feeling. The feeling is either there, or it isn't. You know from the beginning, because you feel it from the beginning. You also know if the feeling is mutual. However, what we do sometimes, is ignore the signs that tell us that despite how we feel about him, he doesn't feel the same way. We then kind of waste our own time believing that there is something there, that simply isn't. The truth is, if he loved you, you would know. There would be no confusion, and no doubt. If you find yourself in a situation where you are doubting where it's going and you're not sure if he's feels the same way about you, I recommend asking him directly, "Where is this going? Do you see us working out long term?" If he is unsure, or does not give you a direct answer, then you know what it is. You need to walk away from that situation. Before I get into why, I want to
