little lovelies-birthday club

I'm all for free things....especially free food! I'm always wanting to go out to eat but can never justify spending the money-cue birthday club. I make it a point to sign up at every restaurant, come June I'm loaded with free meals. My b-day was last Tuesday and I had a plethora of options to choose from.

I love the places that actually give you a free MEAL and not just a free appetizer or dessert because who are we kidding I could just eat chips and salsa at home and get my slush at sonic during happy hour. Anyway....my favorites are Noodles (which for some reason I didn't get one this year-looks like they might not make my top 5 anymore) Ruby Tuesday, Famous Dave's (although you never quite know what your free item will be, sneaky lil' guys eh?), Red Robin and my all time favorite is BD's. We thought this was only in WI but turns out they have one in downtown Denver. We went for David's b-day a year or two ago and not only did we get a free meal but a free dessert too-a good dessert I might add, not just a little cake but a massive ice-cream sundae. Jackpot. Maybe we had a new waitress that time because every other b-day we only get a free meal.

So yes my birthday was last Tuesday and I was thoroughly spoiled. I'm a heavy sleeper and didn't hear a peep out of David and Grant as they made me breakfast. David out did himself and got me some much needed (and wanted) hiking gear and I wore those puppies around all day to break them in.

After a relaxing dinner we went and played miniature golf. Grant did really well (behaving not golfing) and we had a fun time enjoying the great weather. It's probably not a good thing that he did so well because now I just want to take him every night! Thanks for the great b-day!

I do the same thing!!! I like Moe's SW Grill too. It's right next door to Noodles in Pewaukee so last year I got mac n cheese for my kids at Noodles and a Quesadilla for me at Moe's for lunch. Pretty sweet deal! We went to BD's a couple years ago for Merrick's birthday and got the meal and free dessert too! :)

Happy Birthday!! I'm so sad we didn't get to see you while we were in Denver (we were actually there less than 2 days and things were pre-planned out.) I'm glad your birthday was amazing!
