I like Birthdays; loud, food, singing, excitement, friends, family, fun, oh and gifts! I like to do them up BIG!, not just mine but others too. I know some of you know this about me already but hey, some might not. The one area I am bad at when it comes to Birthdays is if you don't live close to me then I tend to forget about your birthday, sorry. Anyway, I had a friend who had a B-day last Thursday and I wanted to take her out cause she totally deserved it!
Disclaimer: I am sharing this because it was fun and different not because I think it is the best idea ever.
Okay, so we decided that Friday night would be her night! I picked her up at her house and I took the nice unexpected photo shot as she was opening the door.Then once in the car I handed her an envelope with a b-day card inside along with a little piece of paper that said "TASTE" on it. I proceed to tell her that today is "JAINA'S BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION OF DOLLARS AND SENSE" and tonight will be a night of awakening Jaina's senses. So we make a quick stop at the car wash because my car was horribly dirty but that was not part of her celebration it was just an extra bonus for her because I asked the guy for lollipops and he gave them to me and I gave them to her, score! Did you like that super long sentence? Okay so for "TASTE" I took her to Texas Land & Cattle Steak House, I hadn't been there but she said she liked meat and I wanted to be near the promenade, so that is where we went. We had great steak dinners along with a b-day song and a free yummy dessert! Then it was time for her next envelope that had the word "SMELL" in it along with $5.oo. I told her that she had to find something she liked that smelled good for 5 bucks and that is how it was going to be for the rest of the night. She had $5 for each of the senses that were left. Well the first shop we went into was Sephora and we smelled perfume for a long time that was a lot more than $5 but it was still fun. So then all of a sudden we noticed that the store was closing, so I thought okay we will just go on to the next shop in the promenade and then I noticed all the shops were closing. I couldn't believe it it was already closing time and I didn't have a back up plan. Well we sat in my car and I tried to think what we could do and all I could come up with was Wal-mart and that didn't sound like very much fun. I decided to try T.J.Max and thankfully it was still open but for just a few more minutes. We struck gold, she found the rest of her senses in that store and got some really cute items; tea cup and saucer, platter, panties, and salt grinder. Don't ask me which one item went to which sense cause it was a bit of a stretch but it was fun. I think Jaina had a fun night and I know I did too. Now it is time to plan my birthday, only 49 days to go!!!
