Friday Four: Cow Day, to the G.A. – We did It All!

This was yet another great week for the books! And I compiled it in the tidy little 4 pack! Ready?

 

Like all first Saturdays of the month, we made

 it to Home Depot! Kids Workshop. Each month

it’s something different. And did I say it’s free?  This time our little diva friend  Leyla joined us. S

he is incredibly brilliant and cute!

 

Sunday, 3 of my sons left out on for Orlando FL. It was AAU Basketball Nationals tournament and 2 of my sons were playing. The trip was long…..eight hours one way! My oldest son came in handy this weekend! He did the entire trip alone!  My husband and I stayed in Charlotte to work and catch up on little jobs throughout the house.

 

Monday came and we returned the borrowed items from the Ellis Island celebration in Druid Hills. Did you miss it on the news? here’s the clip from that. ( here  ) and here are some pictures from our 7/4/18 day in the park—> (Click Here)

2.  This year, we downscaled our dress up game for Chick Fil a Cow Appreciation day. Did you go? My sister got her treats early that morning, I shared mine, and a sister-mom from Queen City Stay At Home Moms shared theirs too. Drop a picture below if you went.

3.  Have you ever seen a siser loc instal? I did this week, and I think I could do them on myself. Can you think of all of the money I would save? It could possibly be another flow of income and yes that is never a bad thing.

(See it here)     Sisterlock Install on Short Thick Hair…….it’s beautiful! My daughter got her install earlier today. I’ll share her results on  my  facebook. @QCSupermomLoc Extensions Neat, properly installed, and maintained by Sankofa @www.iamsankofa.com in Inglewood CA 90305.

I gotta say, having just two little ones is completely different than having all four of them together. It’s much less work.

These two guys are aggravating without their brotherly set. They are bored more often and I have less time and attention to focus on my other tasks.  I just had to send them outside with their dad to smell the air and clean the yard.

4.  I just got the update that one of my son’s team won the AAU Basketball Championship for his class scale but the younger one didn’t for his. To celebrate both of their hard work my oldest son took them both to Bush Gardens!

Well, that’s our week so far. Think you can keep up with us? Find out for yourself at

Good night from my tribe to yours,

Wednesday WoW: BEST DIY Chick Fil A Cow Costumes

Are you ready for Cow Appreciation Day by Chick Fil A? I clare I am.

I  have already began the DIY thrills !

It’s simple, easy and loads of family fun. The more you dress up, the more free food you will receive!  Dress head to hoof in costume and you’ll get a FREE MEAL! Dress in a partial costume and you’ll get a FREE ENTREE! So dress your herd and get to your nearest Chick Fil A !

With four little boys and two teen girls in tow, there’s gonna be a lot of cutting, pasting and measuring. I can’t wait!

Here are some fun ideas to get your creative minds flowing:

  1. Start with items that you already have at home — cow-printed accessories stashed in your closet will work perfectly. Hats, vests, scarves, neckties, pants, shoes and pajamas — just about any cow-spotted item will work. Just make sure you’re covered head to toe.
  2. Wear white, and then just add spots. Throw on a white T-shirt with white pants (even sweatpants) and stick on your spots using black paper. You can cut spots out of construction paper and tape them to your shirt and pants. If nothing else, you can grab an old white T-shirt and color black spots all over it with a marker – and you’ll still get a FREE entrée.

Red Cow  7-3-2015 1-04-32 PM 540x960

                                         He insisted on being a red cow!

I LOVE dressing my babies up. I do it every chance I get because I know soon and very soon, they will not want to have this type of fun with me.

The only thing is I always  wait until the last day to make our costumes for EVERYONE, We then end up with the pdf print outs from the official Chick Fil A page, complete with black sweat pants and shirt with white construction sheet dots sporadically placed. Not exactly picturesque, but I’m going for broke this year!  I gotta have something for the children to look back at a feel embarrassed by.

This year I want to get fancy! So I’m putting together my “Cow Ideas” early! If you find yourself lost as I often do, you may want to save this link for your own family prepping needs. Ok, now, be sure to click the highlighted links. You’ll go directly to the sources I placed here on my page. (I’m not reinventing the wheel- there are so many great ideas out there already) Like this one, it includes a cow’s udder!!! So Yes, the sky is the limit! Enjoy & have FUN!!!!

Heads Up friends…what counts as a full costume and a partial costume is up to your manager, so do your best. Watch more here from previous years! Mooooo!  <—–Click to see an online album. Here’s the Tumbler page too!

P.S. I’ll share our pictures on Facebook when we are done so follow me over there! I maybe able to get my daughters to recreate this into a cow costume- complete with more printable templates from Chick Fil A.—— this would be too sweet—>
