Head Into Your Local Outback To Treat Yourself w/ A Free #MiniMilkshake

Momma Told Me: Treat yourself.

July seems to have flown by quicker than a blink of my eyes, and boy have I been wearing myself out. On the good side of things, the kids and I have been having a blast, and I've been getting very good sleep without the use of my usual aids. Unfortunately, with three kids afoot, I've spend a decent chunk of money (even the 'frugal' excursions add up with gas and food). Whenever the girls and I have craft time I always find myself sitting at the dining table wondering why I didn't grab myself supplies to craft to. It's simply second nature to think of myself last. We go out to grab ice cream, I sit the treat out; the kids are fighting over which rides to go on at the Pick-Your-Own farm, I'm standing on the sidelines guarding shoes and Tinkerbell purses. And, when the kids leave for the day I begin taking care of the 4 legged children and preparing dinner and cleaning for Jay. Yes, life goes by fast, but it's important to stop and treat yourself from time to time, as well.

One way I especially enjoy treating myself is by going out for a nice, grown-up, meal. While I don't always like spending the extra money, I have a few favorite restaurants that I consider 'worth it.' Sometimes I'm craving Chinese for lunch, other days I want to take in a slow dinner with a glass of wine and a juicy steak. For that I always choose The Outback Steakhouse. Not only is the dark and cozy atmosphere relaxing, but the wide arrange of sophisticated appetizers (and the not so sophisticated Bloomin' Onion), alongside a thick loaf of Rye and butter, literally melts my heart. There's nothing like a good slab of meat and shrimp on the barbie to really indulge; so I was surprised to hear this favorite treat is now twice as sweet, literally.

Now through August 7, 2013, Outback guests (excluding California, Washington, Oregon, and Idaho) can indulge in the newest addition to this chain's dessert menu. With 5 tempting hand scooped Blue Bell Ice Cream flavors, these single portion #MiniMilkshakes are the perfect finish to a great night in the Outback.

What Daughter Says: It's not always easy, but remember to spoil yourself too- After all, nobody's happy if Momma ain't happy!
