definitely the luckiest thing that's ever happened to me, I should probably invest in a lotto ticket

Friday, March 4

So this thing happened. 
I don't know if you've ever heard of having your own pizza day? But there is, in fact, such a thing. And it's very real. And very cool. And yesterday was mine.

I woke up yesterday morning, not knowing anything about this day. This benevolent March 3rd, holy day of free pizza for only Sydney's. But as I was driving my sleepy and sniffly kids home from a long afternoon at the park, there it was. My name, plastered on the side of a sign. Just yelling at me. SYDNEY! IT'S YOUR DAY!

 I said, you're damn straight it's my day, Flying Pie Pizzeria, thank you for noticing.
Then I experienced a profound rush of warm fuzzies as I googled the place immediately.

Turns out, it was my day for a free pizza. Not only a free pizza. But a free pizza for me to toss and slather and sprinkle myself. I called Tyson and told him the good news and his response was, and I quote, freak yeah.

After tucking our babies in bed, we rushed back to the joint with just an hour left before closing. 
The place was empty, but when I told the host my name, he yelled to the rest of the staff, GUYS! IT'S SYDNEY! WE HAVE A SYDNEY!

Turns out, I was their only one.

Welcome, to my kingdom.
Here we have the rolling of the free pizza dough.
And the tossing of the free pizza dough.
And the catching of the free pizza dough. Boom still got it.
Ignore my lack of sauce spreading skills. And the flour all over my coat sleeve.
Instead, take note of the three different cheeses that were used in the making of this free pizza.
And cute Sam, who was my pizza spirit guide.
And these arcades that we wandered around while our pizzas cooked.
And my cute date who is forever camera shy.
And these, our finished products, TA-DAAAA!
Happy Sydney Day to me and one and all!
And may you too someday randomly drive by a sign that tells you it's your day for free pizza.

This is seriously the funniest and happiest story in part to your documentation and also my undying love for pizza. Praying to the pizza God's for my day now! :)

Amazing!! The chocolate and ice cream shop in our town does this each summer. Free ice cream cone for a different name each and every day. August 31 was my name and it absolutely turned myn whole day sunny.

Flying pie is g.o.o.d.. I reaaaally miss that place. Actually I miss all of Idaho. I'm German but used to live in Boise for a while and I cannot wait to come back and visit someday. And hopefully they'll have a Mina day when I'm there, ha! In the meantime I'll just come to your blog whenever I'm homesick :)
