So, as you probably remember, it was my birthday last week! I promised a recap...so here's what we did for my birthday! If you're into big birthday parties, you'll probably think it was boring, but I assure you I had a great time with my hubby, especially since we're both a fan of doing random things and getting free stuff!
Prior to my birthday, I signed up with all kinds of restaurants and places to get free birthday meals. Most of them you have to bring in a coupon that will usually expire a week or two after your birthday. But since we had so many places that I signed up for, we decided to spread them out as much as possible so we wouldn't have too many places to go for one day.
We decided to use the IHOP coupon a few days before my birthday. This one was neat because I actually got another coupon for the same meal for signing up for their club, so Tyler was able to eat free too!
On my birthday, I waited for Tyler to get home from work so we could go on our free food adventure!
Once he got home, drove to the mailbox on our way out for my birthday night, and saw the cute little raccoon and cat that always chill by the dumpster (because someone leaves little piles of cat food there for them.)
Then we went to Schlotzsky's, where Tyler and I split my free birthday sandwich! The key to keeping free birthday meals free is to not feel bad and buy a combo or drink at the restaurant, and to split your food with your significant other so they don't have to buy a meal for themselves. This is much less awkward if you get the meal to go.
I got their Turkey and Cranberry sandwich...it was really good!
Next place we went to was Firehouse Subs. We went here on Tyler's birthday, and the employee's are always super fun about birthdays!
They even gave me a fire hat to wear!
Then we went to Krispy Kreme to use the coupon for the free birthday donut, and we split an Apple Fritter.
