Remember: Dress Up Like a Cow this Friday!

If you don’t know about this, you’re probably thinking, “She’s crazy!”  And I must admit it does sound crazy!  But hey, I’ll dress up partly like a cow for a free Chick-Fil-A entree on July 9th.  Everyone who comes dressed up partially like a cow gets a free entree, and for those who come completely dressed up like a cow get the whole meal free.  You can RSVP on Facebook if you want to, but you don’t have to.

Here’s more info about where to download free printable cow ears, spots, etc.

If you can’t tell already, I’m a huge fan of Chick-Fil-A…our whole family is.  And would you like to know why? (By the way, this is not a paid post.   It’s strictly my opinion)  Well, let me tell you anyway:

  • We really like their food!
  • Chick-Fil-A’s food is top quality!
  • They have awesome waffle fries.
  • Their new spicy chicken sandwich is so good!
  • They have a super fast drive-through (One time during the lunch rush, the line wrapped completely around the building and I was at the end of the line.  I timed it and it only took me 5 minutes to get up to the window to get my food.  They’ve always been consistently fast.)
  • They’re closed on Sundays for faith and family.
  • They give out an enormous amount of money every year in scholarships.

“Cow Appreciation Day” at Chick-Fil-A / FREE food on 7-9-10

Yes, there is free food at Chick-Fil-A this FRIDAY but there is a stipulation.  You have to dress like a cow…I’m not kidding!  Their website explains all the Cow Appreciation Day details. If you dress partly like a cow (and they even have a link to download their starter kit so you can print off cow ears, cow tail, cow spots, etc) then you will get a free entree.  However, if you dress completely like a cow from head to toe (cow PJ’s are acceptable) then you get a free meal.  We’re not doing the free meal thing, but we will put on cow’s ears and spots for a free entree.   Kids can even enter a contest.  Sounds like fun!

FREE Breakfast @ Whataburger Tomorrow!

When you’re out and about between 7-10 am tomorrow morning, you can get a free “Breakfast on a Bun” from Whataburger.  And if you like things really spicy, you can get jalapenos and picante added for free!
I may get mine with bacon instead of sausage, I haven’t decided yet.  We rarely have either because of the fat & cholesterol factor, so it’s a treat when we have either one.

Family Dollar $50 Gift Card Giveaway

GIVEAWAY OVER:  Winner is Stephanie Grant (by

Before I tell you about this awesome $50 gift card giveaway here at Healthy Home Blog, let me tell you this.  Now that I’m “grandma” and have two precious little grandsons, I find myself looking at baby’s and little boy’s clothes if I happen to be passing by them in a store.  The younger grandson is nearly 14 months and the older one is two (nearly three), so I look in the baby’s section and the toddler boy’s section.  I love looking at clothes for them!

Speaking of children’s clothing, have you seen the new line of adorable and affordable kid’s clothes called “Kidgets” at Family Dollar?   I hadn’t seen them until recently when I was given the opportunity to review one of their Kidgets outfits for my grandson as seen below.




I must say that I’m impressed with how stylish the three-piece outfit is.  It is really cute!  And the saying on the T-shirt is perfect for a two year old.  (If you’ve ever been shopping with a two year old who is having a “terrible twos” experience in the store, you know exactly what that means!)

Family Dollar’s “The Affordable Turns Adorable” Kidgets line of clothing for newborns through toddlers is perfect for this economy.  Many people have a tight budget but yet they still want to have cute clothes for their kids.  Look at what all Family Dollar’s Kidgets offers:

  • Three-piece outfits for $8 and under
  • Trendy seasonal accessories such as beach sandals (priced $4 & $5)
  • Children’s sunglasses (priced $3)
  • Foldable totes (priced $4)
  • Hats (priced $4)

If you visit Family Dollar’s website, you can even print a coupon for $1 Off a Kidgets set of clothes for a boy or girl.  I use coupons whenever I can, so I think this is great!  And Family Dollar has a money back guarantee, promising a full refund to anyone who is not satisfied with items in the new Kidgets line.  This is a win/win situation!  Maybe that’s why it’s said that Family Dollar is one of the fastest-growing discount retail chains in the US.

Also, Family Dollar is hosting the Cute as a Kidget Photo Contest with a $5,000 cash grand prize and other great prizes.  Families can upload their cutest “Kidget” photos.  Family and friends will then have a chance to vote, and the winner will be announced on July 16, 2010.  Family Dollar is also hosting a “Cute as a Kidget Sweepstakes” for more fun prizes, and they’re having daily drawings for gift card giveaways.

Now, on to the $50 Gift Card Giveway.


This giveaway is open to all US readers.
