WORDFUL WEDNESDAY

Denny's had their Grand Slam breakfast free, for a few hours today.

Normally, I don't get into these kinds of promotions because the crowd and long lines do not appeal to me.

But, my friend called me this morning and told me that it wasn't too crowded, and that I should go. In fact, I did go by there last year (for the same reason), but the line was out the door. Ugh, no thanks!

So, I asked my little ones if they wanted to go (my older ones were still sleeping), and they were more than willing!

When I put our name on the waiting list, I noticed there was a page full of people before us, but they were seating people pretty quickly. At first I was ready to leave, but no more than five minutes later, I hear, "Alicia..for four...Alicia for four!"

So, we had a yummy, full pancake breakfast, plus it was nice to get out early today!

You are such an awesome mom.

Alicia said...

Hi Alicia...this is Alicia! lol. I was visiting the blog of Paul at Misadventures of Grocery Clerks and I noticed your name on a comment and I came by to visit because there aren't a whole lot of Alicia's in blogland. Then I noticed you and I even have the same signature at the end of our post :-)

So I decided to follow as I love that the very first post I read of yours is about Dennys and Breakfast and free food! YES!
I hope to visit often, Take care!

I love Denny's. :) I always make it a point to drop by for breakfast at least once during our yearly visit to Canada.

Oh! That all looks so good! Wish I didnt have to get to work soooo early this morning!

Blessings & Aloha!

Brenda said...

What a fun outing for your children! I thought about going, but could not talk my husband in to it. Maybe next year. . .

Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma said...

$9? That's an awesome deal! Where in the heck was I today? I hate lines too, no amount of savings is worth standing in line forever. I am way too impatient for that! It looks like you all had a great breakfast - yummy :)

Ms. Latina said...

Ohhh that looks delicious! I've never been able to get the Denny's freebie since it so far from me and we are such sleepy heads LOL

One day, one day...

tattytiara said...

I heard a lot of people saying they wouldn't go because of the wait times. Maybe it's because enough people avoided it for that reason that nobody did have to wait very long!

Clueless_Mama said...

Wow, now that is what I call a deal:) Looks like the kiddos enjoyed it too. Now I am hungry!

Our Family said...

I so wanted to get the free Denny's breakfast, but couldn't get there due to work! Looks like you all had a wonderful start to your day!

I heard about this, and I am so glad someone I knew got in on the action! Looks delicious and I bet it was even better because of the tab!

Cascia said...

Wow! That is a good deal. I don't think I could get my kids up and going that early in the morning before school.

Helene said...

You gotta love FREE pancakes!! It looks like everyone enjoyed their meal!

I really HOPE that in just a few more years my kids will sit still like yours do at the table.

Mommy, I'm Home said...

I briefly thought about going but there's no Denny's within a 15-minute driving distance so I figured it wouldn't be worth it. Glad you got to go though...

Pam said...

That was so sweet of you to take the kids out for breakfast. I would have been the same away because of the crowds.

Mayhem and Moxie said...

I would definitely have to agree with the fact that your kids had a good time. The pictures do not lie! So glad that you took a change and got out there.

Momisodes said...

JEALOUS! Free + Pancakes? Could it get any better? I wish we had Denny's here.

We ate that too. It was very good!

Anne said...

The imPerfect Housewife said...

I'm looking at the sodas on the table - you are SOOOOO my kind of mom!!! Glad you got a great deal - best feeling ever! ♥

mama's smitten said...

Fun! I love Denny's. We don't have one here though.

Michelle said...

Now that is a bargain.

I had to laugh when I saw you name in Mr. Linky..."ore than words." :)

blueviolet said...

Long lines or not, for $8.39 that was totally worth it!!!!

JamericanSpice said...

They are enjoying the meal! YUM. Glad you went and it wasn't a hassle.

angie said...

No way! You scored!

Muthering Heights said...

This promotion had me feeling so sad that we don't have a Denny's here...way out here in the boonies...

Amanda said...

Wow!! I would have loved that. I think I feel the same way about it... if I had to wait to long it just wouldnt be worth it! Fun!

Blessings-

Veronica Lee said...

I heard this was going on and I thought it was a rumor!!!

Stacy said...

Wow, our Denny's was wrapped around the building!

It would be nice for a almost free meal:)

LDH said...

Hello! Visiting from Serial Crafter because I think the Friday Flash Back is such a great idea!

Guess what? My husband and I went to Denny's too! We arrived just past 6 am because we were not sure how long the wait would be and we had to be sure he could get to work on time. It was really fun and we just paid for coffee and tip.

I have enjoyed visiting with you!
Kindly, ldh

Kristen Andrews said...

free is always good, I haven't had one of their breakfasts in ages, sounds good right about now!

Shelle said...

oh i remember loving denny's when we lived in south beach....we'd stay up till wee hours of the morning then be really hungry & would order a takeout breaky....and devour it just so!

happily retired gal said...

How 'kewl' ;-)
My BIL loves Denny's Grand Slam breakfast and I'm wondering if he knew about and took advantage of the opportunity? Love all the adorable pictures of your kids. Thanks for dropping by Sacred Ruminations earlier this week. I'm still waiting for someone to look at my living room ceiling but fortunately the rain has stopped ... at least for now.
Hugs and blessings,
