What I did for free chicken...

I did something many women would consider horrid yesterday. What did I do? I dressed myself and Little Elvis in matching outfits... kind of.

Now before you hit the comment button to tell me how tacky that is, let me explain myself!

Chick-fil-A gave out free chicken strips to people who came in dressed in football team paraphernalia yesterday. And I'm not one to balk at free food from Chick-fil-A, remember the homemade cow costumes?

I'm a Mississippi State fan through and through. I have two T-shirts and a windbreaker to prove my allegiance. And, being my son, Little Elvis has an MSU onesie.

One of the t-shirts is grey. I got while in college. I sleep in it now. The other shirt is maroon and is actually a step above a T-shirt. My parents got it for me a few years ago. It's nicer, so I wore it.

Little Elvis' onesie is also maroon.

I realized this as I put him in it, but we both needed to get out of the house. (Both of us had meltdowns yesterday afternoon and we needed to get out of the house and be around other people.) Plus, my shirt had "DAWGS" written on it, and his had the cascading MSU. I told myself they weren't exactly alike, and no one would even notice.

So, we left to go shopping dressed as alike as a mom and toddler son could probably dress. It wasn't even a game day. I could probably have gotten away with this on a Saturday... in Mississippi.

While at TJ Maxx, the woman in front of us told Little Elvis that he matched his mom. She then gave me a clipped smile. Judgmental rude woman.

I told her that we were getting free chicken strips at Chick-fil-A. She then started to tell me with a pitying look that they were closed on Sundays. (Insert much more appropriate term for her here.) Too bad it was a Monday. Ha! Once she realized that she turned back to the counter and left us alone.

We got our free chicken strips and Little Elvis devoured all three of his. I tried to tear one apart for him, but he would have none of it. So I had to switch his torn one with one of my whole ones.

The things I will do for free chicken.

The good news is since Bob is still in New Orleans, there is no photographic evidence of this fashion faux pas.

Ahhhhhh! No photograph! Bummer! I would have loved to see that. I think it is sweet. Why not dress similar while you can get away with it?!

Soon he would never let you get away with dressing him the same. Enjoy it now!;)

So glad to be back and catching up with you and Elvis!

Haha - wish I could have seen a pic too, sounds cute :) That woman was awfully rude (not to mention she needed a calendar). It's not like you both dressed up as daisies and went out shopping.

I second (third?) everyone else. A photo would have been awesome.

And with food prices being what they are now, there's not a whole lot I wouldn't do for free food, so good on you!

good for you. ;) first of all, i see nothing wrong with dressing alike... i usually do this w/ at least one of my children w/o even realizing it till i'm out the door. lol i guess i just get an idea stuck in my head and that is what we all wear... like all wearing green shirts or something like that. lol Oh well. I think it is super cute that you and Little Elvis had matching maroon shirts... and also that you had a nice day out and got FREE chicken!! you go girl!! :)

and as for the stupid jerk (and that is mild) in TJ Maxx she is just lucky that she wasn't here in NY running her mouth to someone... we aren't as kind as you southern folks! lol

Why even bother to say anything if you can't say something nice. And honestly I bet you two look great!! :)

Sorry to hear that you and L.E. are in a funk the other day... seems like that is going around. we had some of that here too... thankfully it seems to be passing some what. :S

Have a great day! and if by any chance you ever see the rude woman from TJ Maxx... give her my #. lol

xoxoxoxo HUGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

[url=http://www.iystwowgold.com]wow gold[/url], We were holding my personal original number of games gold but nonetheless , beyond the 2 or 3 weeks often the flap started to times more out and then it glitches others so much... internet marketing browsing try and position them within the origanal products seee when that assists to.
I seriously love these [url=http://www.guildwars2gold.com.au#guildwars2gold]guild wars 2 gold[/url],they were more difficult to put on. I donot have any problems putting them ,extra so they an additional games gold I purchased. I actually strongly advocate these [url=http://www.d3boy.com/]d3 gold[/url].
Examples of these are actually good games gold. I purchased people on the the winter not too long ago after i are in a fantastic, rainy in addition to wintry locale they held up excellent. Eventhough I didn't need to have these products around the wet/snow, when I acquired caught up in this particular version of weather conditions we were great- kept on us all particularly apparel and then not damp. Through experience i applied him or her while i sailed as well as appeared to be pleasant wander in all of time of day. They are particularly heavy-duty and fashionable games gold. Worth the capital and so i would most likely fully reccommend him or her!
hasn't been pleased everyone loves this games gold without having to knowledgeable an issue with them all i've truly Some twos and those experience the corresponding in the least, i purchased this breadmaker seventy one twos at a stow this is usually the very first time that you will find invested in [url=http://www.hahawowgold.com]buy wow gold[/url] internet and we does not perform it agaian, all the dog's fur was indeed small as well as was feeling for very reasonable prices engineered. i'm dispatching him or her bak
I really like games gold. I had ordered 12 pairs. I was thus pleased whenever Jester pink ended up and then ordered it quickly. When many people got here they may not be a true green as well as at greatest may very well be labeled as melon. There's a pretty green ensemble in their eyes and probably would not go together with nearly anything purple. I'd another it and even selected one more color selection.
Those are the preferred games gold possibly they may be lovely, pretty, and chic we purchase for them any day these survive always. they certainly do find marked readily in case you're taking care of these products some people superb!
