Annie's Bakery in Murphy, TX. To personalize the cupcakes Annie printed an edible picture of "Pete" the chicken with caption above it saying "Happy Birthday Mom" (this was Zaines way of contributing to the celebration).
So what do you get your wife who is bummed for three days because of a horrible cold and that she did not have a special birthday? A NEW CAR! Yes folks you heard me right, after my wife drove her Subaru Baja from mile 23 to mile 170,234 and from August 2003 till December 2011, she has upgraded and downsized from a midsize all wheel drive SUC (sports utility car) to a 2008 Mini Cooper S.
I have been working for the past six months trying to find the right car at the right price for my wife. First there was the A3 but negotiations broke down and the dealership sold it. Then there was the Mini Cooper S above that we started negotiating on before Thanksgiving and I had to walk away from the first time because we could not meet at the right price. Then came the worst part which was trying to work with the Fiat dealership. They offered such a low ball on my wife's car that I could sell the car just as metal to a scrap yard for more money than they offered to buy it for. They even were bragging to me on how cheap they buy trade-in's and told me the price they paid for most of the cars on their used lot. Then it was back to the Mini Cooper S and the dealership finally agreed with me and we are both happy. My wife loves her new (new to her) car and the dealership has it off of their lot after almost four months. .
