Random Friday Thoughts

Isn't it nice to get freebies sometimes? Tonight we scored.

1) Free fish tacos at Rubios. I LOVE their food. They are promoting Utah's free fishing day (which is tomorrow).
2) Free donuts at Krispy Kreme

Why do coupons bug me so much? Well, let me tell you... I often forget them. I know I should keep them in my car at all times but sometimes I get them as emails and I forget to print them off until I'm at the store and it's too late. That happened tonight. We rushed to Tai Pan trading so I could buy a beverage dispenser before they closed. I thought it was a sale item and didn't bring the online coupon. Well they wouldn't give it to me for the sale price without the coupon so I didn't get it. They lost a purchase and a customer over a stupid coupon. What's the big deal about scanning a coupon if a customer asks for it?!! I still want that darn beverage dispenser but I need to decide how soon I can let go of my grudge.

Onto a much lighter subject-HeRoos and I have been like little kids. We've been saving our pennies for a new purchase. Before I tell you what it is, I should share our summer goal: FAMILY, FUN, FITNESS. So the donuts don't really fall into this goal but our purchase does.....new bikes! We each got a new bike and also helmets, a bike trailer, a bike lock, and a softer seat for HeRoos. It all adds up.

We are so excited to give them a spin as soon as we wake up. I would really like to try the Antelope by Moonlight Ride but it's on the 25th, 3 weeks away. I rode it years ago and have scars to prove it. I was trying to pick a wedgie and fell over just as the race was getting started. It was still a great time biking under a full moon and seeing people of all ages and abilities participate. Wish me luck talking HeRoos into it and getting my legs strong enough to actually enjoy it.

We got free fish tacos on Friday, too. I love free stuff - and I agree about the coupons!! I would drive farther to go to Roberts because they would give me 40% off one item without a coupon instead of going to Michaels that is much closer because they required the actual coupon.

Shawn loves fish taco's. It is funny, what some stores do. Yesterday Makae went shopping with a friend (A first since she is on 4th) and they had a shirt on a dummy. The last in the right size, and they refused to take it off the dummy to sale it. So they lost the sale. Seems like a stupid idea to me. Aren't they all in business for the sale?

biking sounds like fun. We haven't been for years - course I need to get a new bike as mine went to Makae about 3 years ago as well. Hope you guys have great time!
