I have always thought that my birthday fell at the perfect time of a month: the end. This way I had the whole month to get excited for and to look forward to my special day! Well, this year it also happened to fall on a Wednesday.
|My delicious Oreo® Dream Extreme Cheesecake!|
Because Wednesday is the hump day between two weekends, I started early on Sunday by visiting with my little and grand-little (whom calls me grandma-LOL) at our favorite place, the Cheesecake Factory. I had my leftover sandwitch for breakfast on Tuesday and my delicious leftover Oreo® Dream Extreme Cheesecake for my birthday breakfast--breakfast of champions! Right?
Monday I again dined out. I partook in Longhorn's succulent bacon covered steak with a loaded baked potato and a brownie ice cream sundae for dessert! It was a tiny bit healthy. I started with a salad and had plenty to take home!
By Tuesday, you can probably tell I had a few leftovers in the fridge! I ate my leftover steak and potatoes for dinner. It was just as good reheated! And then I enjoyed the company of a good friend as we went out for UDF deep freezes.
Happy Wednesday was the best day I could have asked for! I had cheesecake for breakfast, my co-workers brought me cupcakes at lunch, I had an ice-cream sunday at I-Hop (where I was also sung to for the first time in a restaurant and used my first of several birthday email coupon offers!), and was surprised (after a 20 minute car ride filled with 'maybe' as the answer to each and every one of my questions about where and what we were doing) with a M&M Ice cream log cake by Dairy Queen! And I got to keep the leftovers!
|My Godiva birthday truffles, Maggiano's full size|
entrees to go, and Tiramisu for the road!
And to top off a week filled with great food, I used my birthday coupon to Godiva to buy truffles! I got one free truffle as a monthly reason to visit, and ten dollars off any purchase of ten dollars or more. All in all, I walked out with 7 super yummy looking truffles for $3.60!!!!
Whomever said the last fun birthday is '21' clearly has not met my friends, family, or email birthday discount offers. My 24 has probably been the best birthday yet AND I still have a weekend with my parents and sister to look forward to, AND a trip to pick out my birthday present with my significant other! (Sperrys to replace my hole filled moccasins!)
What has your best ever birthday been?
