When I was in elementary school, birthday celebrations were almost more exciting than meeting Santa. Kids would bring treats to class, and the last 15minutes were reserved for an in class party. These days birthdays seem to come and go without the blink of an eye. I usually like to keep my birthday on the low down, unless I get free stuff..then it’s time to party.
I think I may have talked about The Veggie Grill once or twice before..it’s safe to say I am obsessed. It just so happened that I received a, “welcome to grill club” and a, “happy birthday” coupon all in the same week! This meant a free meal (for birthday) AND a free dessert (for joining grill club.) All I had to do was give my e-mail address..SOLD!
One of those plates was free, along with the carrot cake. Vegan comfort food never tasted SO good. Happy Birthday to me. Along with eating my weight in food, I bought myself some birthday party pants earlier that day.
My life is so black and white..time to add a little color.
$10 dollar pants on sale at H&M, dance party indeed.
Q: Do you have a big celebration for your birthday? Mine is on Friday, but I have a half marathon on Sunday and want to take it easy the few days before! AKA I am a grandma and will probably bake some cupcakes and fall asleep by 10pm.

I LOVE THOSE PANTS! That is all.
Those pants are pretty sick nasty Britt. That meal looks amazing! Party hardy lady.
foods for the soul
Happy early birthday!! I normally keep my birthdays pretty low key too. Last year, my boyfriend took me to Chevy’s so I could get a sombrero because I had wanted one since I was, oh, three years old! (It’s still on display in my bedroom.) But I always make my own birthday cake (or cupcakes)!
Looks like AMAZING food! You can never go wrong with mac ‘n cheese, sweet potato fries, and carrot cake. Especially if all eaten in the same sitting! :]
that meal looks soooooooooo good! carrot cake = best birthday cake ! i LOVE h&m there clothes are cheap but so damn cute those pants are the best I need themmm! but def cant pull them off i could just see what my friends would say to me now lol. i have a bunch of pants with that preg waistband and all my friends make fun of me for it haha idc they are so comfy ! happy prebday !
Those pants are cray-cray, which is why you should wear them for your run on Sunday. Nobody will miss you. In fact, they’ll be talking all enviously about the girl in the “pants.”
Every single one of those meals looks ridiculously good and since half the meal was comped (or at least the dessert), it was well worth the trip to Seattle.
natalie @ will jog for food
Preggo waist bands are always good! haha
Alex @ therunwithin
you my friend are a girl of my heart. free/cheap stuff for my frugal self is always a win
So who was your date? 😉 Happy birthweek!
My adorable boyfriend of course!! Also known as Manfriend!
I knew that! Sometimes my snark/sarcasm is too subtle.
OOPS! Haha, always hard to tell via text! Just pretend I got the joke!!
Is it yo birfday today? If so, HAPPY DAAAAAAAY! Those pants are so badass, I wish I could pull that style off! The most creative I’ve gotten is with some coral colored jeans. I’m such a sucker for black, white and grey.
My birfday is on Friday..almost!! These pants are the craziest pants I’ve purchased..never have I ever begun to get this wild in the fashion sense. HA.
Melissa @ Mouthwatering Morsel

I like low key birthdays myself.
And I love your dance party pants!
Happy early birthday!
Wow, that place looks soooo cool! A free vegan meal on your b-day sounds like a great present!
Rest well for your half, but don’t forget to throw yourself a huge celebration afterwards 😉
I love that Aaron asked you if they were comfy! That is something my husband would ask. Even if they were the world’s cutest pants, if they weren’t comfortable he would hate them. 🙂 You look awesome and the food looked so good! Happy early birthday!!
He’s too good to me I tell ya!! I think we picked some winners!!
Oh yes, I love those pants! Yay for birthdays – I hope you get very spoilt and have a lovely relaxing day 🙂 My birthdays are always lazy affairs these days – good food, company (and maybe some awesome wine!)
Sending you speedy vibes for your half!
You are rocking those pants!
All the best for the half! I’m sure you’ll kill it.
Happy birthday! 🙂
Those pants honestly look like birthday party pants LOL. I love them. I love that they have a huge waistband too. Glad you got a free meal for your day. 🙂
I love your blog! And those pants are rockin’! My birthday is April 6 and my favorite 5k to run is that Saturday morning so that’s what I’m signed up for! PR on my birthday? Hope so!
A birthday PR, what could be better!?
bdays are all about freebies and color! love the coupons, score! and love the pants. TOO CUTE!
Happy Belated!!!! and I am LOVING the pattern pants. FYI – colour on colour and mixing patterns is really in right now…..so don’t be afraid to go crazy!!!!! the only rule is that colours have to be close to the same family and patterns must share a common colour 😉 with those pants the opportunities are endless!!!
OH and love the looks of that vegan food 🙂 YUM!
Alex @ Brain, Body, Because
Um…I definitely Googled “Free stuff on my birthday” and signed up for a billion different things. Dunkin Donuts gives free coffee and Moe’s Grill gives a free entree!
ALEX!! What a genius idea!! DOING THAT NOW!
Rach @ This Italian Family
Happy early birthday, friend! Your meal looks delicious – so exciting that your part of it was free! And enjoy dancing in your new pants! 🙂
Heck yes to Birthday Week! I love free things, especially when its pretty much your birthday 😀 Loving the pants! hahahahaha I freaking love that you asked if he would hold your hand in these!!!! BEST question ever. I am definitely going to use that the next time I ask anyone for an opinion. Hopefully you’ll get more free things this week!

Happy birthday, girl! You know how to celebrate! Pass the carrot cake!
Happy Early Birthday!
You’re too kind. I would love diamond money.
Courtney @ Star Systemz
I tried those pants on and they didn’t fit me or else we would have a dance party together 😉 Happy Early Birthday and I am so glad you enjoyed your Veggie Grill meal! Veggie Grill All Hail Kale Salad is my all time favorite Kale salad in the world! Sending you joy + memories for your birthday! Love + Shine CourtStar
EEEkkk we could have been twinners!! I will be trying that salad next time I go, I always go for the BURGERS!
The food! The pants!! All of the things!! 🙂
All of that food looks so yummy! Print pants are everywhere these days.
Alex @ Cookie Dough Katzen
Those foods look so good, especially the mac n’ cheese! I don’t usually do anything super special for my birthday but when I was younger at home, I always got to choose the meal for dinner. Glad you had a great belated birthday!
di @ life of di.
I miss elementary school birthday celebrations too. I love that you brought this up. It makes me want to celebrate birthdays in a different way. It’s weird because I remember elementary school SO WELL. I still have dreams about the school I went to but rarely have dreams about my high school. 🙂
Happy birthday by the way!! Hope you enjoyed your celebration 🙂
Choc Chip Uru
Happy birthday my friend!
I think I agree with your pants idea, on my birthday, I go food crazy 🙂
Choc Chip Uru
Those pants are way too cool, my friend! You pull them off so well-I never could.
And that meals. Looks. So. Good.
Super hot pants there Britt…oh and how about that Veggie Grill? I still have you to thank for recommending that joint!
Life After Swimming
Those pants are SO you! I love them! And I love that our birthdays are so close 🙂 We rock! And we make it fun for our loved ones to have birthday/Valentine’s Day back to back! haha
Party pants all the way. My bday is coming… I’m thinking party pants (or metallic tights) and wild Sephora nails, you know the ones… with the built in textures? Who says a hiking, baking, active woman can’t rock some FLAIR on her bday!
Oh my goodness, I absolutely love those pants. And that mac & cheese looks out of this world!!
Nicole Marie Story
OMG. You are an aquarius, like moi! I just knew it! Love love love! (not your unfashionable pants, but rather that we’re born of the same astrology, ha ha!). 🙂 xo
With a quick glance at your posts I’ve discovered vegetarian food, workout gear and fitness stuff, I’ve gotta follow!
The Healthy Flavor
Happy birthday!! That food has me drooling….what is in that Mac n cheese?? It looks AMAZING. Also what is on that sandwich?? It looks like fish…can you tell I’m hungry by my questions. It looks delicious. I really wish a vegan restaurant existed near me. Love the pants too….they so fit your personality!!! 🙂
It’s a “chickn” sandwich!! And the mac and cheese..not sure but I know there is some Daiya and nutritional yeast haha!! It was sO damn good.
I’m not sure which I love more, the pants or that cake! Happy Birthday! Usually for my birthday I also celebrate grandma style, but last year we took a trip to Nice… it was nice 😉
HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY! I love those pants. It reminds me what little baby zebras would look like after they ran through a rainbow. ❤
I love your dance pants 🙂
Christina Does It All
