Our family isn’t new to Cow Appreciation Day at Chick-fil-a. I’ve been going every year for as long as they have had it, and the last three years, I’ve drug Hubs and Red with me. We even “dressed” him up when he went! This year will be no different, and on Friday July 11th, we will don our ears, tails and spots; heading to Chick-fil-A for our free meal. That’s right… a free meal. Wear one dominant cow piece and you get a free entree. Make a whole outfit and you get a free meal. Chick-fil-a offers a great free printable to get you started.
I literally have no excuses for our poor cow costumes of the past, other than I ran out of time. Being a costume designer is like being the children of the cobbler… we don’t get any shoes because I’m too busy making them for other people. While I am at least making our one day in advance for Cow Appreciation Day this year, it’s never too late to share a tutorial with you… or a round up!! Other fabulous bloggers have their stuff together and put together some complex, easy, fast and detailed outfits that you can replicate! Unlike the printer paper and marker one I made for Red’s first outing…
Featured above, in order are:

Find more cow appreciation day outfits on my Cow Appreciation Pinterest Board, where I’m sure I’ll still be collecting ideas until we get in the car to leave for our Chick-fil-a sandwiches. With extra pickles. And a lemonade. Because Mmmmmmmmm.
Do you dress up for the free meal every year? Or do you have this restaurant near you?
