Chick-fil-A Cow Appreciation Day July 9, 2010

Woohoo!! It's a Chick-fil-A holiday! To celebrate Cow Appreciation Day, all 1,400+ locations were offering free food! For those dressed up "head-to-hoof" like a cow, Chick-fil-A handed out free meals. Guests partially dressed in cow attire were given a free entrée. As Chick-fil-A is my faaavorite restaurant, I had a reason to celebrate.


A couple weeks ago, my friend Kim let me know about the holiday...I thought: "C'mon Kim, I got this." She said she wanted to dress up too, and I was so excited that someone else would consider something so weird. At first I thought Kim was joking around...until she made an official Facebook event! The two of us, along with my other wacky best friend Nicole, agreed to make it a date! We all made our own costumes and met up my house to get ready.
We used the kit from the Chick-fil-A site to make our ears and signs:
And we even had tails!:
The restaurant was fully decorated as well:
And there was an official cow!
We all got free entrees which we quickly inhaled! Look how the three of us eat...
In my typical fashion, I made a huge, obnoxious mess and used too much sauce:
Kim was pretty messy herself and drowned her food in ketchup:
And Nicole was the neat eater of the group:
I asked if dessert was included in the free meal and they brought us little ice cream cups! I added leftover strawbberies from my fruit cup:
Kim with her cup:
We had a blast, even if we were the only adults dressed up! We're definitely saving our costumes for next year. Our friend Frank joined us for the affair and since he works for the Channel 2 news, he put a clip of us on the air!! FAMOUS!! Yay for free Chick-fil-A!!

  20. So cute that you dressed up! I'm so paranoid about stuff like that, I could never do it. I get embarrassed too easily...

  24. I love Chick-Fil-A :) This reminds me of Chipotle's dress up like a burrito on Halloween for a free burrito deal. Everything's better when it's free! And, of course, awesome costumes!
