Monday Made It: July 14

I'm still not doing any huge, crafty things over my summer break because we've been busy making friends and memories by spending time with lots of people from our new church. This has been a huge blessing to all three of us! I have a small "made it" for this week, but I will have something a little more in depth to share next week because I'm hosting (and attending) my very first PINTEREST PARTY!! One of my friends told me about these a while back, and I've been wanting to go to one for a while. So I mentioned it to the girls in our community group, and we're finally making it happen! I'm very excited, but you'll hear all about it next week.

This week's made-it has to do with a certain restaurant that is very near and dear to my heart:

No, I never worked there or anything. I just really love their chicken...and those cows! So every year, they have a Cow Appreciation Day where you can dress up and get a free meal. Seriously, you can't beat that!

Keagan and I have participated for 3 years now, although we're still pretty basic on the costumes so far. Next year I'm determined to actually have something a little better. I'm thinking of getting a pillowcase and sewing some felt spots on. Here's Keagan's costume for this year though!

I was going to use white trash bags and paint the spots on, but Steven has students that work at our Chick-fil-a, and he didn't want to look too tacky. So I just cut out a few quick spots and pinned them to Keagan's shirt. He wasn't a huge fan of that and kept asking me to take them off, but he held out longer than I expected. It helps that he understood it meant he got yummy chicken nuggets!

I also had to look back and dig up the pictures from our previous two years. I can't believe how much he's grown! Last year, he had just started saying "Moo!" when he recognized a cow. This year, he can tell you exactly what the cow is doing and more!


What have you been making?


  1. So cute! I had no idea this existed, but this explains that people dressed as cows in pictures on my facebook feed! I'll have to remember for next year!

  2. I have never ever heard of this day until last summer when I accidentally took Nitty and her friends to eat at Chick-fil-a. We had SO much fun watching people come in dressed as cows. Keagan looks so cute!

  3. What an adorable tradition. I live in Canada so no Chick-fil-a for me - I feel like maybe I am missing out on something : )

  4. What's a Pinterest party? I've never hear of that.
    You must must MUST link up the pics you take of what ever you make (if that's what you do) with my Favorite Pin Friday linky. Share the pin and then take a pic of what you made. I'd LOVE to see what you do.
