Today is my Birthday! I know I am getting old because I needed a calculator to tell me how old I was this year. I couldn’t remember if I was going to be 31 or 32. The calculator sadly said I was 32 this year. Oh well! I decided to make the best of it this year and embrace all the free stuff I could get my hands on. So let me tell you about my Birthday Adventure.
I woke up late…the sun was already up. That was amazing. My husband gave me some money to get my hair done for my birthday and my appointment was at 2:30pm. I left home around 12 so I could get my first birthday gift. I went to Cami Cakes (a cupcake place here in Atlanta) for a free cupcake then I walked next door to Fire House Subs and got a free sub! I know amazing! There is more. Next, I went to Lenox Mall and stopped by Sephora for my free birthday gift. On my way to the car, i walked through Macy’s and they gave me free samples just because…..it was my birthday. After that, I went to my hair appointment. This is what my hair looked liked before.
My appointment was at 2:30pm but my hair stylist did not start until almost 3:00 She was behind, very behind. Just the same, I was determined not to have a bad attitude on my birthday. It was frustrating …by the time I left my hair appointment it was almost 6pm. I spent 4 hours there when it normally takes me a hour and a half to get my hair done. At the end it was worth it when she charged me $50 instead of $80. YEAAAA! I was so shocked I was speechless. Since it was 6pm and I live in Atlanta I had no choice but to browse around Hancock. I HAD to go…I HAD no CHOICE! LOL with my extra hair money I got some batting that was on sale and they gave me a !5% coupon because I am a teacher in training. I get to use this coupon every time I go, so if you are a teacher go get get your card! On a whim, I decided to head back to the mall and go to Anthropology, one of my favorite stores and bought this mug.
It was $10 and totally the best gift from my husband’s birthday money. On my way home, I was hungry so I stopped by Moe’s for my FREE Birthday entrée. By the way, here is how my hair turned out:
It is pretty humid here so my curls have completely dropped but it is super long and straight! I am pretty happy with it! This is me at the container store picking up my last item before I headed home. I got this bright pink caddy for my sewing cart. Yesterday, I went out with friends and got a sewing/craft box for my travel sewing machine. Two additional gifts from my Happy Husband.
My Birthday is not quite over yet, I have a Birthday Stash planned for Saturday and we are heading to a movie tonight and a free meal at iHOP.
I would like to point out this is the first year I have taken advantage of all these freebies. You can do the same on your birthday by going to this link.
Until Next Time, Sew Pretty!
