100 Frugal Tips in 100 Days: Tip #85

Frugal Tip #85 Plan a frugal birthday!

It's my Birthday! My 30th Birthday, to be exact! Yikes! I have always loved my birthday, I love spending the day (or week) doing fun things and celebrating my happiness! So for 30, I wanted to do something special. I planned out a day where my husband would chauffeur accompany me around, however, he is out of town on an interview until later this afternoon.

For lunch I think I'm going to hit up Panera (a little birthday treat). For dinner I'm thinking Chili's. Sounds kind of boring, but Tom and I kind of love Chili's. Plus, we have a $50 giftcard from credit card rewards and a coupon for a free brownie sundae!

I'm hoping the weather is cool enough in the evening to just relax on the balcony with a corona in hand and a few good friends!
