Birthday Reward Perks from Retailers

Hi Everyone! I wanted to share a quick post on a few birthday perks from retailers that I received during my birthday month.

This never happens. *Nordstrom - so technically they don’t have birthday perks

She’s starting to recognize different animals when we’re out and about. It would be super cute to see them up close at a zoo or petting farm. We visited the aquarium recently and she had a blast. Attend a football game - this is a tradition for my husband and I. We like to attend a pre-season game and try to make it to a regular season game as well. This will hopefully be the very end of summer or early fall. So fun! Have a seafood feast - crab feasts have always been a thing in our family. Buying a ton of crabs and eating them until you explode is a tradition. I would like to do this one more time before they go out of season. Try a r
