Want A FREE Chick-Fil-A Chicken Sandwich?!

Photo credit to
I am a huge Chick-Fil-A lover if you haven't already figured that out! I love them! Yummy food. Excellent customer service. What's not to love?!

What many people don't know is that Chick-Fil-A has an app. So many business do these days and usually there are perks so if you have any stores your frequent or places that you  love, you should look into whether they have an app or not.

And with the new Chick-Fil-A One app, perks you will get! Like, free food. Not kidding. Who wants to happy dance with me?!

Recently,  Chick-Fil-A updated their app to the Chick-Fil-A One app. It's brand new and just released today. And to celebrate, Chick-Fil-A is giving everyone who downloads their new app a FREE chicken sandwich! Whaaaat? Seriously. Who doesn't love free food?!

The above photo is a screenshot from my phone. When you log into the app, scroll down and you will see this box. Select the sandwich you want and if you want to add it to your mobile order, or by having the app scanned at the register. It's that easy!

In addition to this, you get the chance to earn MORE free food from Chick-Fil-A by simply taking advantage of their mobile ordering from their app. Every time you place a mobile order, you are that much closer to scoring FREE Chick-Fil-A food!

If you don't have the app yet you can get it here. And if you already have the app but just need to update it, you can do that through the link as well! Enjoy!

Now excuse me while I go and get my free Chick-Fil-A chicken sandwich :)

Chick-Fil-A Salad Container Up-Cycle Challenge

Earlier this month, Chick-Fil-A sent me gift cards to try out their Frosted Coffee and Spicy Southwest Salad. I must say, they were both delicious! I'm not a big coffee lover but I gave the frosted coffee a shot and it was pretty good. There must be something about the coffee being cold that makes me able to drink it because I also like Chick-Fil-A's iced coffee. 

The Southwest Salad was yummy! I love a good salad. But this salad came with a challenge. Well, the container did at least. As part of the Chick-Fil-A Mom's Panel, I was challenged to up-cycle the salad container in a #chickfilamomsDIY challenge. I was excited, but also nervous. The creative wheels haven't turned in a few months. I've been so busy that I just haven't had much time for any creativity. But my love of a good challenge came through and with the help of my younger two, and a whole lot of thought about what in the world we would make, we made a fairy garden. 

For this project, I used two Chick-Fil-A salad containers, one Chick-Fil-A fruit cup container and various things we had around the house.

I knew I wanted the containers to kind of stack but fastening them together was the trick. It took some figuring out and playing with, but eventually I got it to work. I had a wooden drawer knob that was sort of mushroom shaped that I wanted to use, so I gave it two uses and screwed it through the two salad containers to stick them together. I also cut the corner of the top salad container so that the two containers wold flow together. 

One container was spray painted with green spray pant. LOL. It was from a failed DIY. 

Once they were connected, I filled both containers with soil and then placed the fruit cup container (also filled with soil) at the top. Now we were ready to decorate!

We gathered (ok the kids gathered) pebbles for the pebble path that lead to the fruit cup where we made a "flower swing". We made a little teepee and placed it off to the side and added a couple succulent leaves to add to greenery. The littles added a couple seashells, a rock and flower to make it feel like a home. 

This was a fun little project! My kids and I really enjoyed spending the afternoon making this. Who knew these little containers could be so useful and fun?! I can't wait to come up with more ways to up-cycle my next Chick-Fil-A salad container! What fun things have you made from salad (or any!) containers?

Worldly Box April 2016 Review

So last month was my first Worldly Box and I absolutely loved it. If you aren't familiar with this company, let me explain. Worldly Box is a subscription box that starts at $14.99/month with super cute and unique jewelry from all over the world that is personally picked out just for you! You take a survey before your first box arrives that has many questions and helps the wonderful people at Worldly pick out pieces that they think you will love. Included in your box are 2 jewelry items and one bonus mystery item. You can check out my review of my March 2016 Worldly Box here.

Now lets get started on the review of the April box!

As usual they wrap up the box in their super cute chevron tissue paper. So cute!

When I opened the box, there was my card, addressed to me with the details of the items in my box. Now let me say something here about this. Have you ever left a comment on a social media page for a business and wondered if they ever saw it? Worldly Box sees your comments. They not only saw a comment I made on a super cute pair of hoops that I loved, they included them in my box people! THEY INCLUDED THEM! Woo-Hoo! The card reads "...Thank you for leaving us comments on our Instagram, it helped me pick your pieces this month! Your first piece is the pair of earrings you liked from our Instagram page!.." Seriously, these people are amazing.

These earrings were handcrafted in India and are made from recycled glass colored beads and brass/silver metal. As my five year old daughter Sloan would say, they are adorbs!

The earrings. I have such love for them lol. 

Next is this also super cute beaded bracelet. It was handcrafted in Ghana and is so unique (in a good way). The beads look they are also made from recycled glass and each bead is hand painted.

The last item included in the box is a coin purse. It's made of wool felt and is from world of goods. The tag says that it was handcrafted by women artisans in Nepal. Inside the pouch was a tiny bag of gummy bears. My daughter really wants this pouch so I think I may give it to her, but the gummy bears are mine lol.

I don't know if I missed this last month, but this month I noticed that on my card, it says that a portion of my purchase was donated to provide meals to orphanages throughout Africa. How cool is that! These Worldly Boxes are making so many worldly differences. They are helping artisans from all over and orphanages. Just another reason to love them.

So there you have it. This box was awesome! I am so pleased again with Worldly Box and will be looking forward to my May box. If you are interested in trying out Worldly Box, click here.

Worldly Box March 2016 Review

*I'm a little late on posting this. But a little late is better than never! Btw, I received this box about 1 month ago. Sorry for the delay!

Last month as I was surfin the web looking for nothing in particular, I came across website called Worldly Box that instantly had me searching the internet looking for reviews. That's when I came across this review. Worldly Box is a jewelry monthly subscription service that sends you 2 pieces of handcrafted artisan jewelry and 1 extra item that isn't necessarily jewelry. Once you sign up, they send you a link to a survey that you fill out so they can get an idea of what kind of jewelry you like. Then, they hand pick items for you each month based on your answers. A JEWELRY PERSONAL SHOPPER, PEOPLE! Love this so much!

Instantly I was hooked. Such super cute stuff and for only $14.99 a month?! No freaking way.  I instantly signed up for the monthly service and also explored their shop where they offer a few select one of a kind pieces for sale. I purchased a necklace and will write another post about that. It's so pretty!

So yesterday, I was having a super awful day. I don't really have many bad days. I honestly can't remember the last time I had a horrible day. I'm actually pretty laid back and I don't worry much. But yesterday was different. NOTHING was going right. And to top it off, I was just about finished with my taxes when a glitch happened. And. Everything. Deleted.


I have to start over. After I hid in the corner and cried like I baby, I got up and moved onto something else. But the day just kept getting worse. Until I went to my mailbox. Inside was my very first Worldly subscription box! Woo-Hoo!! It had arrived an entire day early! I quickly ran back into the house and could hardly control myself to not rip into it without taking pictures first.

So lets get started on this review, shall we?!

Here is how the package arrives. Cute box with a colorful tissue paper band and a handwritten name tag with my name on it. Cute, right?!

When I opened the box, there were cards in there. One of the cards told about the jewelry that was hand selected for me, telling me who made the pieces and where they were made. Both of my pieces came from Venezuela.

The first piece I will show you are these earrings. I remember these earrings from the survey and I loved them! I was really excited that these were chosen for me! I love dangle earrings and I love shades of blue. These just looked very coastal and very me!

The second piece is this super cute blue knot root necklace. It's not really my style but I think it's pretty. It's lightweight and lays well. The length is perfect. I'm not sure if I will ever wear it but I'll hold on to it for now.

For the extra item, I was given a worry doll keychain. Could the timing be any more perfect on this one? lol. The enclosed card says that these little dolls were made and given to children so they could tell their fears to the doll. Then they place the doll under their pillow and the doll protects them from their fears and keep them from having nightmares.

I would rate this box 4 out of 5 stars. I'm happy with this box and I can't wait for future boxes to arrive. This little company was just started in January of this year. They are already having amazing growth and I see them only getting bigger and better!
