cow mania

Did you know that today was Cow Appreciation Day at Chick-fil-a?  I hope so, because if you didn't, you missed a rare opportunity to dress up like a cow and get free food.  We at the Luce household were not going to let that chance pass us by, so our Friday night began with a trip out to Chick-fil-a. I hit a road block when I surveyed the girls' closets and found nothing that screamed cow, but there were old white shirts that had been put into the play clothes pile, just begging to have a cow drawn on them with a fat black marker.  So that's exactly what I did.  

Our night at Chick-fil-a started with a photo with the cow himself, and it only got better from there.


I'm going to zoom in on Marianna's shirt so that you can see my handy work.  It is what it is: a home made, semi-embarrasing attempt at getting free fast food. But I'm gonna have to say, the finished product was surprisingly cute.


Now this is where the night really gets good.  Right before we walked into the store, a family coming out gave Nathan and I their home made cow costumes, consisting of black garbage bags, with holes cut out for the head and arms, covered with taped on pieces of white construction paper.  
Classy just doesn't begin to cover it.


And do you know how much we paid for our two combo dinner? $0.00.  It was completely free. Sure, some may view the price paid in pride, but come on, if you take yourself too seriously to dress up as a cow, then what fun are you really having? The atmosphere at Chick-fil-a was cow-razy for sure, but more than that, it was good, old-fashioned, silly fun to see adults and kids alike walking around in their homemade cow gear as if they were sporting the latest fashion instead of construction paper.  Way to go Chick-fil-a for continuing to cement yourself as #1 in the fast food industry in our hearts!

I think it's only appropriate to end this post post with a youtube video every Chick-fil-a lover must see.  I find myself humming this around the house pretty often.  Maybe you will to.

The cows turned out cute! I LOVE Chic-Fil-A! Thank God we DON'T have one, because I already weigh enough! Can't believe the guy in the video failed to mention the cheesecake! =)

Love the trash bag idea. My husband, 2 year and I dressed up and got free entrees. I really love Chik Fil-A, great place. Also I found out last night that you could trade in the kids meal prize for an ice cream cone:)
