Every year I get excited for my birthday. I get excited not only because it’s my special day, but I also get excited for the fact I get a lot of freebies. There have been many years I’ve gone to collect them all too. This year I didn’t go so crazy. I was mostly exhausted from the night before to be honest. A large group of us went to a local place to enjoy a round of mini golf and the arcade, and it was a blast. The problem of course was that I was worn out the next day. It’s a good thing I had saved up my Starbucks birthday treat though, right?
Don’t worry guys it’s decaf. I was sad that they were all out of Caramel Brulee though, because it’s my favorite. I settled for a tall decaf soy vanilla latte, which is my go to drink when it’s not the holidays. As far as birthday freebies go, I love the Starbucks one each year. I mean I could have gotten any size, but I’m limiting myself since I’m pregnant. The drink was like a giant party in my mouth though since I haven’t really had any in the last few months.
Some of you will remember our, Cross Country Road Trip complete with a stop in St. Louis, but you don’t know how badly I craved a Panera cheese danish. It was so bad that we stopped at 3 different St. Louis Bread Company locations to look for one and they were each sold out. For those of you who don’t know, St. Louis Bread Company is actually Panera Bread. It was originated in St. Louis and kept its original name there. The next morning a really kind lady in St. Louis who worked at St. Louis Bread Company gave me an extra cheese danish because she knew that baby wanted it so bad. On my birthday, I was even more glad to be able to have this delicious treat. It made me happy all over.
This year I didn’t claim my birthday surprises from Corner Bakery, Johnny Rockets, or Converse shoes. I’m telling you though guys that it is definitely worth it to sign up for some of these mailing lists to get your special birthday free or discounted treat. Here’s to hoping you’ll get all your birthday freebies this year!
