Cow Appreciation Day at Chick-fil-a!
I'd been looking forward to this day since I heard about it last year. It's amazing and so simple. You dress like a cow and get free food on July 10th for cow appreciation day. Sign me up, slap a cow spot on me and bring on the chick-fil-a number 1 - no pickle, no butter and an ice cold coke! Lucky for me my family was willing to come along and let me dress them up as well.
At this point our "spots" were already falling off and Owen was taking them off to chew on. Owen loved the fries and free cheerios. I believe he was more excited than Carter.
All in all, five sheets of black construction paper,
one white headband,
two cow ears,
a few print outs from the computer on white card stock,
a yard of brown ribbon,
double sided tape
and white shirts already hanging in the closet
two #1 meals,
two kids meals
and a perfect free family date night.
I'd guess by swallowing our pride and dressing like cows we saved at least $25 bucks and a had a good time doing it!
I've already marked my calendar for next year for the second Friday in July.

How come I didn't know about this? And where is the nearest Chick-fil-a to us?

Hey Jen. We went to the one on Mason and 1-10, there's also one on 290 & Fry. Not really close to either one, but yum worth the drive.
