My birthday

I left my house at 8am and didn’t get home until 9pm. It was a busy and fun day!

I picked up my oldest friend and her turtle and took them to her vet. The turtle has a shell infection and she’s treating it. Then she and I went to Denny’s for my free grand slam and Dunkin’ Donuts for my free beverage, and kolache factory for my free kolache.

I took her back and picked up my coworker and she and I went a BUNCH of other places! There are so many free things for a birthday. You just sign up for emails and they send you free coupons for food!

My list of places we went:

Kolache Factory

Dunkin Donuts


Einstein Bagels

Ben and Jerry’s

Baskin Robbins

The Chocolate Bar


La Madeleine

Taco Cabana

Jack in the Box

Smoothie King

Godiva chocolates

Honey Baked Ham

Firehouse Subs

Great American Cookies

I got a bunch more but ran out of time! I had to meet my friends at Taco Cabana for dinner (if I had known I would have saved my free taco coupon for that).

My son’s best friend moved. We saw them off the day after we had dinner. It was very sad and my son cried and so did his friend.

My friend came over last night and gave me a lavender bath bomb and a sweet card. She’s so sweet!

I hit 6 months of no smoking too! And if I can stay away from cigarettes when I was in Vegas, I can stay away forever!

Today Lucky graduated basic training at his training school.

That’s the latest and greatest on my end! How have you been?

  1. Happy birthday!
    And congrats on 6 months – and you are right – if you can get thru a Vegas trip – you likely have this down! Woo hoo

    And what a fun list of places to go – when I was little we lived in Long Beach California for a year and this is cheesy – but a top memory of that 7th to 8th grade year was my free meal at a chicken place. I signed up on my own and when the postcard came in the mail (long time ago – before www days) I was super and went and enjoyed that meal!
    And again – happy bday and hope the turtle is okay ๐Ÿข

      So far the turtle is good ๐Ÿ˜€
      Yes, I remember getting a free meal at Big Boy too! And the cards in the mail!!! Too bad that the simpler time is going by the wayside. Thanks for sharing!


  2. Happy Birthday! Itโ€™s good to hear from you. I donโ€™t think I have gotten anything free for a birthday in decades. Unless you count the mini carnations I usually get from my spouse!

      Aww, thatโ€™s sweet of him! Well, just sign up for emails and get your free stuff! I think everyone should, they wouldnโ€™t offer it if they didnโ€™t want to do it ๐Ÿ˜€

  4. Welcome Back! I’ve missed you. Hope you didn’t eat at all those places in one day! Lol
    I liked the Bath Bomb. Have you checked your mail since your Birthday?
    I am so sorry for your son. That happened to me and my BFF years ago. We lost contact for a bit… due to other reasons.. bit, have picked up where we left off.

      I told him my bff from 6th grade moved away so I know how he felt and gave him time and it seemed to help.
      Thank you!
