My BFF Crafty Friend Lori is posting today from
A few weeks ago, she sent me a message that our favorite Chik-fil-A was hosting a dress-up for free food event this week and since I love crafting, costumes, and all things free and especially the chance to blog with Lori on this one, my response was a big YES!
And here she is----take it away Lori!
Hi everyone it is Lori from Our Forever House! I am so, so, so excited for this Friday! The minute I saw this annual event advertised, I IMMEDIATELY sent a message to my crafty friend Heather over at No Business Like Sew Business! I knew it was time to get our craft on! Moooooo!
Heather & I are co-blogging today to share our afternoon fun! Please be sure to visit each of our pages and say HI! We would love to hear from you!
NOTE: Heather is the awesome seamstress friend that helped me with Bubba Z's awning striped curtains!
THE BIG EVENT
This is the event that inspired today's crafting session!
Friday, July 8th, is Cow Appreciation Day 2011!
That means FREE food at Chick-Fil-A
** if you dress like a cow **
If you are headed to Chick-Fil-A on Friday, here is the lowdown...Dress head to toe in cow attire and your entire combo meal is free. A partial costume (shirt, head gear, cow accessory, etc) gets you a free entree.FIRST: SOME CHICK-FIL-A LOVE!!!
I cannot lie, I love FREE stuff! And FREE Chick-Fil-A food is beyond awesome! Yes, I will have a deluxe spicy chicken sandwich and can I get a deluxe Chick-Fil-A sandwich for Heather please!! Combo that too as the waffle fries are amazing - especially when you dip them in the Chick-Fil-A sauce. Mmmm!
I will have a large Diet Dr. Pepper! Heather will take an extra large chocolate shake too as they are "freakin' amazing"! Don't tell anyone, but she has been known to send her husband out to get her one - and no, she wasn't even pregnant!
Oh, and if you have kids, The Chick (our affectionate name) has the best, cleanest and quietest play area EVER (it is enclosed in its own glass room)! Ahhh, the bliss!
Okay, on to the crafting!
MAKING COW COSTUMES!
Here are our supplies...white t-shirts, karate pants (from the thrift store), black felt, glue and a pillow case (to make skirts for the girls)
We got the kids involved. They helped cut out our "spots" and glued them to our shirts.
Heather and I whipped up a simple gathered skirt out of a king size pillow case by cutting it in half, sewing a casing and inserting elastic. Very simple and ever so darling!
Wow, we look like this was some serious work!!!
THE FINAL TOUCHLast week when I was at my favorite Chick-Fil-A store (woot-woot for the El Con store in Tucson) they were passing out cow headbands! I, of course, picked up a dozen of them for my family and friends as I LOVE to share the FREE! The headband is good for a free entree item - not bad!!! If you don't have the headband, Chick-Fil-A has a free cow costume printable on their website.
I will be sending my hubby to Chick-Fil-A for a free lunch too!
He loves a bargain as much as I do!
I can't wait to debut the costumes on our model children at The Chick on Friday! Stop back to Our Forever House AND No Business Like Sew Business Friday for the big reveal.
WHO KNOWS, THE MOMMAS JUST MAY BE WEARING A MOO MOO COSTUME TOO!!!
What would you do for FREE food???
