October 30th, 2014 Mary, Multiple Locations, San Diego County Mary Desjean 13 Comments

Welcome to this year’s edition of Free Birthday Food! I have one special post planned for one of my BIG birthday freebies this year – stay tuned for that one! I got the majority of my free birthday food about a week before my birthday. All of them have various restrictions and expiration dates so be sure to read over your coupons! Some of them also allow you to only view a coupon a few times so be sure to …

werewolf american pub / downtown san diego
October 21st, 2014 Downtown, Mary, San Diego County Mary Desjean 10 Comments

Jake’s birthday is approximately 20 days before mine. We don’t always celebrate on his actual birthday though since S’s birthday is on the 2nd and he doesn’t want to steal his thunder. Instead we celebrated after his actual day. I made the whole thing a “Surprise! Woohoo!” evening and didn’t tell him where we were going. Jake’s mom graciously dropped us off Downtown as I had arranged transport home through Blacklane. Our first stop: dinner at Werewolf American Pub.

I didn’t …

more birthday goods [free birthday stuff, part two]
October 30th, 2013 Mary, San Diego County Mary Desjean 14 Comments

Hold onto your horses for part two of free birthday goodies! This post entails the sit down places I visited for my free birthday foods.

1) El Torito
The nice thing about a free birthday lunch at El Torito is that you get the additional bonus of chips and salsa. Ohhhh yeah!

Last year, this freebie was good for any menu item up to $12.99. It has been scaled back to any $10.99 combination meal – with this change you have three choices. …

birthday goodies! [free birthday stuff, part one]
October 28th, 2013 Mary, Multiple Locations, San Diego County Mary Desjean 4 Comments

I’m going to do the free birthday stuff over a few posts this time to break it all instead of hitting you with it all at once. Cool? Cool.
Today’s focus will be on the “fast food/take out” version of the freebies.

[salsa verde shrimp tacos combo / $7.99]
Rubio’s is one of the birthday meals that I have done consistently over the last few years. Not much has changed in the terms of what you get, which is a free meal worth …

godiva chocolates [free birthday treats]
October 25th, 2013 etc, Mary, Multiple Locations, San Diego County, UTC Mary Desjean 16 Comments

Today is my birthday.

I was going to do a regular post but then it seemed silly to not acknowledge my own birthday on my own blog. So here I am, acknowledging it.
I was a little freaked out a few years ago when I passed the thirty mark, but now I’m pretty much over it. Life is good. I’m in a good place, I have an awesome family, great friends and co-workers, and a really stellar guy in my life. Things …

free birthday food in san diego, ca / 2012 edition
October 29th, 2012 Cheap Eats, Mary, San Diego County Mary Desjean 18 Comments

I turned 34 this year. It’s not a significant number. I can still say I’m in my early 30’s but I think I’m just shy of being bumped up to the next demographic group. I sure don’t feel like 34, not that I can really imagine what it should feel like. In my 34th year I can say that I’m happy. I’m content. I have a job that I enjoy, a boyfriend I adore, and I don’t feel like I’m …

These are other birthday freebies that I got for my birthday that I didn’t feel warrant their own post but I wanted to put them somewhere. I’ll also talk at the end about a few things that I didn’t take advantage of that are out there for you to get for your birthday, too!

[Chocolate Croissant from Panera Bread]
The My Panera card yields you free goodies throughout the year – not just for your birthday. I’ve gotten free bagels, free coffees, …
