Leaving on a road trip

Leaving on my annual spring break road trip.For the third year in a row we will be heading to Myrtle Beach, SC.  I'll be meeting Beach Guy down there.  We will be staying at the Marriott resort again, right on the beach.  The surfing is not the best but there is a lot to do.  I'm guessing that there are good spots because there are several surf shops...I just don't know where they are.
Can't wait to get there.

Free pizza samples

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Tony's Pizza. All opinions are 100% mine.

I just received several coupons for free Tony's Pizza. They are part of a marketing campaign through Social Spark.  They are offering coupons to bloggers to try their pizza and then to blog about the pizza.  When I heard about this opportunity I jumped on it.  As America's Beach Bum I almost always take advantage of freebies like this.

I usually eat more frozen pizza than delivery.  I find that frozen pizza to be much more economical than delivery.  I might invite some fellow beach bums over after a day of beach volleyball to watch a movie or go for a swim.  It is easy to grab a pizza or two or three out of the freezer and pop them in the oven.  And it won't kill my budget.  Buying three pizzas from a pizzeria could run around thirty dollars and that would bust my budget.  Being a beach bum is not a high paying gig so keeping to a budget is very important.

After cooking pizzas for my friends I pull them out of the oven pull the rotary pizza cutter out of the knife drawer and slice each pizza into eight wedges.  I usually prefer pop [yes I said pop...not soda] with pizza.  If it is a movie night we head to the basement where I have my big TV setup.  We will camp either on the couch or the bean bag chairs and settle in to watch the movie.  Pizza and a movie with friends, life is good.

Made my Twitter goal

Yes, I finally made my Twitter goal of 100 followers.  I can potentially receive offers to pay me to tweet ads.  So far I have not had any offers.  Hopefully soon I'll have some offers.  I've set my price at $1.00 per tweet.  If you are interested in this program you can click the ad in the sidebar to join.  Of course, by clicking the ad you will become a referral of mine allowing me to earn when you earn money from tweeting.

So far I have one referral but have not earned any money from the referral.

Spring break planning

Planning another spring break road trip.  I've secured accommodations in Myrtle Beach, SC for the third straight yea,. invited a a few fellow beach bums and created a packing list.  We are hoping that the weather will be good.  Perhaps we will catch a few sets if the water temperature is warm enough.   

As in years past we will be staying at the Marriott right on the beach.  The rooms are ocean front and might over look the pool.  At least I hope it does.  Can't wait to leave.
