A Dear Friend, Chick-Fil-A Cows, and a Plea for Help!

OK, Mom Blogger Troops! My dear friend Tina’s family has been in first place in the Chick-Fil-A Cow Appreciation Day Photo contest for a long time. However, they now have a neck and neck race for the prize, which includes free chicken for a year! She is an avid mom-blog reader and homeschooling mom!

Meet Tina:

Hello Moms! I am Tina Jobe and my family of 8 has entered the CAD (Chick-fil-A Cow Appreciation Day) photo contest and we need some help to win. If you have facebook, would you consider taking just a few seconds to help us? Let me introduce myself…

We are a Christian family and I am a “cook from scratch, eat your veggies, drink your water” kind of mom. My family loves to eat out, but we very rarely do because, well, … with 6 children it’s just too expensive! When we do eat out, I am usually accused of taking the fun out of it by ordering large everything to split and enforcing water.

So, you can imagine the excitement when the children were told that simply by dressing like a cow, they could enjoy lunch on CAD at our local Chick-fil-a. This was a HUGE treat for them that included their OWN fries and drink (with refills!) We had fries left over for once!

Before we left, we hung our son’s blue bed comforter from the ceiling of our basement and my husband took our picture. The picture turned out cute! – a miracle for our herd that really just had chicken on the brain.

When we realized the joy of free chicken could be extended a whole year if we won the Facebook National Contest, we decided to go for it. My little cows are just ecstatic about a soft drink and fried chicken occasional fix, and I must admit, a some evenings off of kitchen duty sounds pretty wonderful! I say occasional because once a week might be a bit much. We’re hoping Chick-fil-A will allow us to share some too!

I am asking when you check your FB, to quickly go to


and cast a vote for the Jobe family. You can vote once a day until August 31st. I know the ads can be obnoxious so you can choose “skip” and no voting solicitation will be generated. Clicking “share” when you vote will post our picture on your profile. Of course this can be skipped too. You will have to allow the FB group Chick-fil-a access. However, they are a reputable company and doing this is totally safe.

I’d really like to promise everyone who supports us world peace and prosperity. I can’t do that, but I can promise you a place at our table if you come and visit us. Even, if we win, I’ll still be cooking those other 6 nights and our home is always open (and I truly love to meet moms!) Thank you so much!

  2. I voted for you after seeing the post on Money Saving Mom, too! I would love to see a fellow Christian family win this!

    Jamie and Julie and Sarah (and anyone else voting!), THANK YOU! You are indeed a blessing. My family and I would love to win for several reasons – to represent family to this store, enjoy some good old CFA together, and to be a blessing to other people (We do hope we can share!) Thank you for supporting us!

    I voted for you also after seeing you on Money Saving Mom, that fact that you were a fellow couponer was enough, but to find out you are also a fellow Christian…WELL! When do we find out if you win?

    of Money Saving Mom.
    God Bless!

    I'm glad I saw this just now – I voted! Princess Nagger was having a great time looking at all the cow pictures… 🙂


  7. I don't know how I found your blog, but am laughing right now because Tina was one of my good friends in college-I was even in her wedding! It is such a small world! Holly Law

    Oh, how funny!!! What a small world!


  9. Thank you again everyone for your support. Holly and Sarah, I have found the blogosphere can make the world seem small. Another neighbor friend didn't even know we were in the contest and saw this! So funny! It is now up to Chick-fil-A to decide. They will pick a top ten and then a Grand Prize winner. They will look at the popular vote (THANK YOU!!), picture quality and representation of the "Eat Mor Chikin" campaign. We will update as soon as we hear more. Blessings all!
