MOOve Over, Free Chicken!

Today, the hubster and I dressed ourselves up as cows and went to Chick-fil-a for Cow Appreciation Day where we got free dinner!

My hubby and I at chick-fil-a dressed as cows.

Neither of us have a legitimate cow costume, so we had to improvise!

Tyler wore black dress pants and a white dress shirt.  We taped cow spots cut out of black paper onto his shirt, and he printed the cow face and ears from the Chick-fil-a website.

What an adorable little cow.

I have a black and white animal print dress -  not sure what sort of animal print it is supposed to be, but it definitely worked well for my cow costume.

Then I printed off a cow face coloring page, colored it with my professional grade markers and colored pencils, glued it to cardboard and glued a dowel to the back and viola, my Chick-fil-a Cow Appreciation Day costume!

Unfortunately the cashier that took our picture didn't get my "Eat Mor Chikin" sign in, but hey - we still got a good picture of our fun adventure.

When we arrived to Chick-fil-a, we were the only adults dressed up without young children (except for the Chick-fil-a employees).  Tyler's costume was complete with a cow tail that we taped to his rear end.  Since we wanted to make sure we got the full combo for free and not just a sandwich, Tyler made sure that the cashier saw his tail to show that he was in this for real.  Tyler says and I quote, "If I'm going to look goofy, I might as well have fun!"

And fun and goofy we were.  And full.  Of chicken.  Free chicken.



  1. hahah this is great! Tyler is right, it's worth having fun! :-)

    1. Fun is definitively worth having, and the moment of him showing his cow tail to the cashier was priceless. haha!

  2. hahaha! Well done on doing this and joining in. I miss Chick-fil-a - we don't have them in South Africa!

    1. Thanks Claudz! That always stinks when particular franchises you like aren't carried abroad. I always missed Cane's when I lived in China!
