Do you have a Birthday coming up? Birthday list!

Happy Birthday Lauren!!
My daughter is about to turn 21 on August 9th. She has always liked getting her own mail and what kid does'nt like running to the mail box to check to see what free things she has received around their birthday!!  It always took about a week to go around to get free burgers, ice cream etc, so we now call it birthday week!

As you can see she has grown up and times have changed, now instead of the old fashioned snail mail most birthday freebies are sent by email.

This year I continued our birthday week tradition by sending her a pile of freebies to her email. Besides do you know any college student who would not enjoy free food?
 Below is the list I came up with the past two weeks. I did go to quite a few blogs, fast food sites and I want to thank each and everyone of you for sharing your list so I can share this birthday list with others!

Thanks go to, and many fast food eating places!
