Some Days You Just Win

It's been a rather amazing day.  We went into Ottawa, and stopped to eat at The Lone Star. We have never been there before, but right now they are running a two for one Brunch special. Well, I always figure, if one of you gets to eat for free, there is no sense looking at the price side of the menu, so I had the Country Fried Steak, with fried potatoes, 2 eggs, beans and toast.  Oh, and let's not forget the free dish of tortilla chips and salsa they put on your table the minute you arrive.  Hubby had the Cowboy breakfast, which has 3 eggs, potatoes, beans and toast, and chose the sausages to go with that.  Since my meal was $2 more than his, it was his that got deducted from the bill.  I have a birthday coming up, but life is getting in the way of celebrating it at that time, so I wanted to do something a little different this year, and chose to go to the Lone Star for a meal.  I'm glad I did, and I'm sure we'll go back again sometime.  There is still another week to catch this, so get yourself over there next Saturday!

We went from there to the mall, where I made a small purchase at the drug store, and dug out a couple of my freebie coupons to cash in while I was at it.  I got the Lindt Swiss Classic and a bag of Doritos, both for free.  I have mentioned winning both of these coupons in previous posts.

While at the mall I went looking for shoes. I need new runners, or, to be more specific,  New Balance walking shoes. They also need to be well ventilated.  I could not find any in my size but while looking my hubby managed to find a pair of dress shoes with genuine leather soles.  He's been looking for such shoes for many years, without success.  He purchased them today, at a full 40% off.

We then went over to Leon's, to present our Visa card and get a rebate because an appointment they made with us was not kept.  I'll tell you the rest of that story when it comes to a conclusion, but so far, I cannot complain about how we have been treated. They are going out of their way to make us happy and I believe things will work out well in the end.

So, though we spent a bit of money though out the day, we actually came out ahead in the end.  Maybe I should have bought a lottery ticket today, just to finish it off right.
