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).

Do you know what it's like to lay in someone's arms and feel completely empty? To have their body wrapped around yours, naked, skin touching, breathe on your neck, arms holding you so tight it feels as if they were meant to never let you go. I lose myself in the forehead kisses and the brushing of my hair behind my ears. In the soft whispers and the morning smiles. I lose myself most of the time. But sometimes, I just lay there wrapped in his naked body wondering if he holds everyone like this. Wondering why I keep coming back. Knowing, that I'll come back again.  *Photo by cottonbro from Pexels

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


Years ago, before I was ever married, I remember asking a friend about trust. She was already married and had been with her husband for a few years. I asked her, "How do you know you can trust him? How do you have faith in him to do the right thing? Don't you ever worry he'll cheat on you?" She told me that you don't put your faith in your husband. You have faith in God. If your husband is doing something wrong, you trust in God to make it right. That conversation has always stuck with me. The bible says, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding; think about Him in all your ways, and He will guide you on the right paths." (NKV Proverbs 3:5-6). I took her words, my Bible, and six weeks of marital counseling with our pastor into my marriage. Still, after only three months, my husband was having an affair. I felt sick. I felt stupid. I felt betrayed. I was angry, and everything they told me went null and void. When y
