My Birthday Adventure



Hey Guys!

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!
