My 37th birthday is next Thursday. I am still not sure how I feel about it. I usually get a ton of birthday emails from places where I have joined their email clubs and such. More than I can honestly use every year. Most of them only give you seven days from your birthday to use them and they don’t send them out until the week of your birthday or so. Well, Bennigans sent my free birthday salad, sandwich, or burger offer a bit early, so we went last night and I used it. I also got a free birthday dessert there as well. I had a Monte Cristo and honestly, I know I say this every time, but I just don’t get how this sandwich works!
A Monte Cristo is ham, turkey, Swiss cheese (which I do not normally like), and American cheese on two slices of bread and then battered and deep fried. Topped with powdered sugar and you dip it into raspberry jam. It is so good! I know it sounds terrible when I write it all out, but it totally works!! Bennigans is the only place that I have found that does it right. Sadly, the closest one is in Plymouth now. So I only go a couple of times a year. Since the dinner and dessert were free, it was worth it to go. The dessert was brownie bottom pie. It is a brownie on the bottom, ice cream, hot fudge, whipped cream and a cherry. Then the whole thing is drizzled in a bit more hot fudge.
I know I want Endless Shrimp for my birthday and Red Lobster just sent me a coupon for $5 off two adult entrees, so I will be doing that on Thursday for my birthday. I get to see Will, who is my favorite sever there and his birthday is week after mine. So, I take him a birthday card.
School started and I am almost through the first week. Class is pretty good and easy for now. I like this class a lot. I am pretty much done for the week with the assignments, so I think I will get a little bit ahead and do some of the readings for next week this weekend. Tomorrow is church as usual. Today is pretty relaxed and I am just going to chill out a bit. I have a couple of discussion question posts to answer, but that is it. My paper that was due on Monday is done and turned in already, so I don’t have to worry about that. So far so good!!
