With birthdays come gifts and coupons and other free things!
To recap: My birthday started on Tuesday of this week, when the Spousal Equivalent and the BFF presented me with a 1st Generation Nook! I squeed. I nearly cried! My birthday proper hit on Thursday. The department got me a $50 Barnes and Noble gift card, and ordered me a cover for my Nook! I've spend nearly all of the gift card already.
That evening I made Chicken Parm Grilled Cheese, and cake. Seriously, it was the best birthday ever!
(Chicken Parm Grilled Cheese: I cut up some chicken tenders to go inside the grilled cheese, swapped out Mozzarella cheese for American, and slathered tomato sauce on the inside of the sammie. Best ever!!)
This morning we struck out to go shopping. My mom send me $25. $25 of it when into my gas tank. A necessity. After the gas station, our first stop of Bath and Body Works. I had a 20% off coupon, plus I found a gift card. That netted me a $2 thing of lip gloss. Then off to World Market. If you haven't signed up for their rewards, do so. On your birthday they give you a $10 gift certificate. Between that and the last $10 from my mom, I got myself a very cute new work bag.
Now, to have some cake and curl up with a new book!
