HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!
December 30th was/is my birthday. Most people gain weight during the holidays at Thanksgiving and/or Christmas but not me. I gained weight the week of my birthday. First because of my wonderfully frugal husband I get all kinds of freebies on or near my birthday. He just signs me up for restaurants email subscriptions and each year they send me free entree coupons. Monday, December 27th two of my best friends and I went to Memphis Championship Barbecue which I LOVE and I got $20 free food there. YUM! Tuesday I just relaxed at home with family but Wednesday, December 29th my family and I went to Fuddruckers for a free 1/3 lb. burger. Did you know they have wild boar, buffalo, elk, and even ostrich burgers? I'm not brave enough to try those but their Mushroom Swiss Melt was the bomb. One of my besties bakes cakes; she works at a bakery and has made me a cake almost ever year. This year she made me a white cake with raspberry filling and butter-creme frosting. It rocks! OK for the best meal of the year I went with my friends to Benihana located in the Hilton Hotel Casino. I get a free entree equaling $30 from there. My friends had never been so it was a real treat for us all. Before we ate we went to the movies. I got into the movies for free. For everyone who invests in those Entertainment coupon books can get in free to any Regal Cinemas on their birthday with a coupon and a valid driver's license or birth certificate. The movie was hilarious. We saw "Little Fockers". I highly recommend you see it but it isn't suited for children. (My opinion) My birthday was GREAT! To top it all off my husband gave my a bouquet of flowers. Lucky me!!!
