Episode 72-How To Celebrate Birthdays

Hey Humor Consumers!

Birthdays are a thing and the older we get, the more of a thing they become. So why not celebrate them in style?

Cathrine and I have been besties for a couple of decades and over those many years we’ve celebrated our birthdays together. Yes, gifts are usually a part of the celebration, but experiences are a MUST. We typically spend the whole day together and sometimes two! Food is another MUST. Who doesn’t love delicious food on their birthday? As I type this, we just celebrated Cathrine’s last week and we found this adorable little place in Dyer, IN called The Scrambled Diner.

We split “The Bayou,” andouille sausage, blackened shrimp, onion, peppers and goat cheese…..wowza. It was a party right there. On top of that, we ordered a half order of “Bananas Foster Pancakes.” Heavenly would be one way to describe our experience at The Scrambled Diner. We will be back.

After that, we headed over to Goodwill….LOVE IT. So fun just to see what we can see and find what we can find. We also went to At Home…..a giant home store with literally every single thing you can imagine needing and several thousand things you don’t all under one roof. We both found some fun items there. A few more stops at some additional thrift stores on the route home rounded out our day. 

People are meant to be celebrated. Birthdays give us a great reason to do exactly that. Be sure to celebrate those you love. ;0)
