Happy Tax Day!

So, today is it... it's the last day to turn in your taxes if you haven't done so already. Honestly, it's one of the first things that I , the Mr. does at the beginning of the year, as soon as we get all the right documents together. It's such a relief getting it done and out of the way, and the pay off, you get your return that much sooner! For those married to those wonderful accountants, CONGRATULATIONS, today, you get your spouse back! I also wanted to share some secret information with you, if you don't already know. Please take advantage of this, for me... especially the Starbucks one, because I can't partake in this being overseas in S. Korea. Let me know if you do, I'm curious as to how many people actually seek out "freebies".


Cinnabon: Get 2 free bite-sized cupcakes from 6-8 pm at participating mall locations as part of "Tax Day Bites!" on Thursday.

MaggieMoos (never heard of the place!): Get one free slice of ice cream pizza at participating locations from 3-7pm on Thursday.

Starbucks (my favorite!): Get free brewed coffee ALL day on Thursday, if you bring your own mug. Friendly to the environment as well as tax payers.


IHOP: Offering free dinner for one child age 12 or younger with each adult meal purchased from 4-10 pm... this is going on ALL month long.

P.F CHANG'S: get 15% off for food purchases, dine in or dine out, excluding happy hour food and beverages.

So there you have it, since no one likes to pay taxes, and everyone likes to get something free! And no, I am not making commission for promoting any of these places... just got some fun information, and figured I would share with all of you stateside!

Pin It!


  1. Also wish I could participate! That is so cool though. Never new they did things like that! I LOVE P.F. Changs!


  2. i am taking advantage of starbucks TWICE...once this am and once in the afternoon. ALSO, einstien's has free bagels this purchase necessary...just a FREEEEE bagel.

  3. and maggie moos is like coldstone...but not as good and more expensive.

  4. Love the picture with the tax man. :) and not a spouse, but I get my brother back today!! I'm finishing the babysitting shift while Pete and Annah celebrate the end of single parenthood! I tell her it's like a deployment, but it happens the same time every year, and she gets to see him a couple hours a week. you military wives can tell me if that's at all a good comparison, but we all know we're EXCITED for TAX DAY! (btw, did you know that the 16th amendment to the US constitution was ratified in 1913, allowing a federal income tax not be apportioned among the states?) Love the blog, Karen!

  5. Becky, I LOVE that you commented on this post, it was definitely for your family!!

  6. I loved PF Changs too... but there aren't any in PC and I only eat organic. ;o)
