Cow Appreciation Day Contest: Vote for my Calf!

Little Cow

To celebrate Chick-fil-A’s annual Cow Appreciation Day our family got dressed up and went to Chick-Fil-A for some free food.  It was so much fun!  I thought that my little girl made one cute calf so I entered her in Chick-fil-A’s best calf costume contest.  I would love it if you would take two seconds to vote for her.  Simply click to Chick-fil-A here, click the yellow vote button, and then enter the captcha code.  Thank you!

Heather from Freebies 4 Mom has been an incredible blessing to me since I started blogging 2 years ago!  She’s always there if I have a question and she’ll hold my hand until I understand it.  I know my blog wouldn’t be what it is today without her!

Having said that, Heather’s mom is in a photo competition on Facebook and needs our help.  Since you’ve been great to vote daily for my $100,000 Cheap Sally contest I would like to ask you to vote for Heather’s mom’s photo entry “LaCroix is our team’s fuel of choice for the 130 mile relay!” If her photo wins they’ll receive iPads for her team from LaCroix.  To vote you just need to click on the “Vote now” button on La Croix’s Facebook page.  Once you cast your vote you will have the opportunity to share this contest on your wall if you so choose.  Remember, you can vote once per day through Friday, Sept. 30 to help make her a finalists in this photo contest.

As I talked about last week in my 5 Tips to a Better You, I am NOT a runner or speed walker but I greatly admire those who are!  It takes preparation, determination, and a dozen other positive character traits to be a runner/speed walker.  Heather is proud of her mom and the 130-mile relay she does with her friends every year and so am I.  Please take a few seconds and vote for Heather’s mom’s photo entry “LaCroix is our team’s fuel of choice for the 130 mile relay!” Thank you!
