As you can guess it has been my birthday October 8th, so I decided that as my friends family and life span over two time zones I could take advantage of this so i had a thirty-two hour birthday. However, to warm my self up for this I decided to spread activities over a few days.
Thursday – I went for my hair cutting and styling, thanks to the lovely folk at Groupon this only cost me $29.99 instead of $110.00.
Saturday – I went and did a wee bit of birthday clothes shopping at Macys. I managed to get a dress, a pair of capri pants and a pair of what I’m classing as pedal pushers for $55.00 instead of $165.00. Then i decided to go with both pairs of trousers I needed some vest/tank tops so I hit the Walmart website and again got 6 tops for $14.00 instead of $22.00.
So needless to say I think I saved myself a pretty penny on all sorts of things, and then came my actual birthday which I thought I could just spend relaxing as I shopped and styled before hand.
36 hours of turning 28!
To start off with it was Columbus Day and Canadian Thanksgiving on my birthday so lots of celebrations going on.
I woke up to a great email from Forever 21 advising that due to Columbus Day shipping was free until midnight, so I grabbed the opportunity to order the dress I have been eying up for about 2 months, and it was on sale. instead of $29.80 I ended up paying $13.99. This was a great way to start my birthday.
After this I decided that was enough spending. So I decided the relaxing could start.
In the evening I had already decided instead of gifts my delightful husband could take me out to dinner at The Counter. I had heard so many great things about the place from Cameron, that her and her husband had been and they do burgers of all different sizes, so I thought hey why not its only my birthday once a year.
We got to The Counter to the great news that we had arrived during happy hour $2 off the beer and half price appetizers. We thought we were in heaven.
So of course we started the evening by getting a beer called Raging Bitch.
Then we thought we should look on the menu, as we had been told previously it was a design your own burger restaurant.
We also decided that we should get a tray of fries as they are always needed with burgers so we got sweet potato and regular fries.
You can kind of tell the photo was a nearly finished kind of thought.
Then our fantastic burgers arrived.
Christopher’s was a 1/3 lb beef burger, well done, with Swiss cheese and bacon. served with hot wing sauce.
Mine was a chicken breast 1/3 lb, with herb goats cheese, black olives and onion strings on wheat bread. Served with tzatziki sauce.
Needless to say we both thought it was going to far to much for little ol’ me. But nope I finished it and wanted to more.
So we decided that seen as it was my birthday we should have a dessert. We got a hot caramel and chocolate brownie, there are no pictures of that.
Then it hit us on the way home “how much we actually had just eaten”
But a great night was had by both of us.
