Amazing Tuesday

Wednesday, February 10, 2010 7:51 AM Posted by simplyamberl
Do you ever wake up and just know that the rest of the day will be amazing? That was my day yesterday. Well, let me back up a bit. While watching the lovely superbowl on Sunday, we happened upon the hilarious Denny's commercial for a free Grand Slam breakfast. Now we are a rather spontaneous couple. We enjoy just driving around and finding new places to go. It's so funny how we are like that. When this commercial came on we just kind of looked at each other and grinned that crazy little grin we have when we are usually thinking the same thing. Road Trip. We jumped online to find the closest Denny's which just happened to be in Pigeon Forge...aka about an hour away. Pigeon Forge is probably one of our favorite places to go. We were married near there in Gatlinburg around 8 years ago, it's where we went on our first date (Go kart racing), where we lived for about a month when Jimmy got a good job there...plus they have this amazing scrapbook superstore that makes me jump up and down in happiness. We love Pigeon Forge. So we woke up early and had our little adventure.

I'm a bit of a people watcher at times. Especially old couples. They are the funniest sort of people. While waiting in line at the overcrowded Denny's, we observed these couples. The old men were so happy that they didn't have to spend any money. The sweet little old ladies were just happy to be out of the house. Then you find the sweet old couple where hand holding is still commonplace and opening doors is an act of love. Those are the couples that I hope we become someday.

Nothing in the world makes me happier than a huge cup of coffee with a big stack of hot pancakes. This whole free breakfast thing is simply fabulous. The grand slam consists of two eggs, two sausage links, two strips of crispy bacon, two huge pancakes with butter and hot syrup. Let me tell you this is a serious good deal. We received our food really fast and it was really hot. Plus we were given more coupons for more free food w/ purchase. I'm a happy girl. I love free food!


Considering that we drove an hour to get free food and probably used more in gas to get here than what the meal would've cost, we didn't waste the day. Even in crazy TN weather we still manage to have fun. I kind of love that about us. Hope everyone has a fabulous day.
