The Birthday Quest and an iguana

OK, some progress has been made.  I have coupons printed out for ice cream from Cold Stone, a free dessert from Buca di Beppo and free appetizers from Mama Fu's and Joe's Crab Shack.  Not to mention I am getting a eye make-up kit from Sephora in the mail this week (for free with purchase) and i have a coupon from Aveda for a 3 piece Smooth Infusion sample pack from Aveda...No puchase necessary!  Wow, this isn't easy!  I also found out that Discovery Cruiseline gives you a free one day cruise as long as you go with a full paying adult!  I don't know if I can make it onto that but it is worth a try!
While taking a break from all of this intense birthday planning, Scott and I went to relax at the pool.  You know I wondered if anything blog worthy would occur in my life and then there was a big splash near us.  There, a few feet away, was an iguana coming up to the surface and swimming to the edge.  He fell out of a tree into the pool where we were lounging.  This thing was bright green, about a foot long and holding a dead dragonfly in his mouth.  Scott isn't too fond of these critters so we did some quick thinking.  He went upstairs to remove the laundry from the dryer (well, I am more afraid of laundry duties than lizards) and I got the pole from nearby and put a scare into the little green guy.  First he dropped his lunch in the pool, how gross.  Then after a few pokes, he took a hint and left.  So now I feel like topics are literally falling from the sky and I am a bit scared!


  1. Ok, I am definitely a fan of this blog; however, I am not sure that the topics are falling from the sky. Well, maybe, this one seems to have fallen off a tree, wildly!
    The Discovery Cruise Lines information sounds interesting.... My cynical side started to wonder about maybe... no that might not work, and it would really be embarrassing to get caught.
    Yeah, this blog really seems to be about the important stuff in life, like free stuff! Lol!

  2. You should have caught that iguana! He could have been Cuby and Oafie's pet!

    I had a pet lizard once. He wandered into my cage somehow and Mama FREAKED out and caught him in a shoebox top and put him back outside. I was sad.

  3. The cruise thing is for real. I checked on the website. You say that you are booking 2 tickets and then later on add that one is a birthday cruise. The other person pays full price. You have the whole birthday month to do it. Sounds too good to be true. I wish I could test it out!

  4. Cuby and Oafie don't need a pet. Scott and I are already here for their amusement. That lizard was BIG and GREEN. weird.

  5. I love these odd blogs. You are making me think more & more about starting my own blog...guess I should since I'm on here already.
