Happy Birthday to me!!!

Ok so I'm looking at my computer clock and I still have about 54 minutes left in my birthday so I thought of sharing what I did today.

Had breakfast at Dennys. Heard from Mitch that they give you a free grand slam meal on your birthday. Can't pass up a free meal right? Even if I have to tow my two little monkeys in the restaurant by myself, I was up for that.

Marcus took this photo.

here's my half eaten grand slam plate. I was trying to be good picking egg whites for my eggs and not ordering pancakes. Although I don't think the hashbrowns, sausages and biscuit help any in balancing the good with the bad.

then after breakfast and running a few errands, I took the kids bowling.

I heard about the free bowling program for the kids from my friend Allison. The kids haven't bowled in a while so I thought of trying it. The process of registering for it was easy but the catch is only certain bowling centers are participating so me and the kids had to drive to Anaheim to bowl free.

Marcus won in both games which made Maddie surprisingly very upset. She's usually nonchalant about these things. Oh no! now I have two sore loosers! just my luck!

and because it is my birthday I decided to "drag" the kids with me shopping for a new outfit. We had more than a few talks inside the Ross store and the cashier even called me out on letting my kids play with a toy that we are not purchasing, BUT other than that we survived and I got me a cute outfit. After all that's all that counts, right?!

then we finished off our day trip with a visit here.....

We are signed up in their "free ice cream scoop on your birthday" thing, so everytime our special day comes around I get an email with a free ice cream coupon. I've always just given mine to Maddie. After all that I've been eating lately, I don't need an extra scoop of ice cream!

The kids both picked sorbets which surprised me. The healthier version over the fattier ones?! huh! I think they were more into the colors than anything.

little Maddie looking sassy!

So that's it. That's my birthday for you. Simple and yet full of events.

Oh and if you're wondering what number I'm celebrating......it's the big 3-0! I've always been scared about that number but now that it's here, it's not that bad after all!

Till next time,
