Chick-Fil-A Concert

My new fruit love? Blueberries!  They're great in cereal, smoothies, or by the handful!

I almost added blueberries to my salad for lunch, but I decided to save them for another day.  Instead, my salad included raisins, grilled chicken, peanuts, cheese, spinach and romaine lettuce.

Last night, I went to a free concert at Chick-Fil-A.  The concert was hosted by my favorite Houston radio station, 89.3 KSBJ.  I love this radio station - they always play the most upbeat, heatfelt Christian music.

I wasn't very familiar with the artist, Kari Jobe, but I had heard several of her songs on the radio.

She led a great worship service and I was truly impressed with her performance!

I was surprised by the audience turn-out for a concert on a Tuesday night!  The Chick-Fil-A parking lot was packed with people.

It was a perfect evening to enjoy some tunes under the bright blue sky.

I am truly amazed at how many charitable events Chick-Fil-A participates in.  Not only is their food delicious, the entire corporation is led by very sincere Christians.  The community truly benefits from these restaurants!

Fun fact:  At every new Chick-Fil-A's grand opening, the first 100 customers win free Chick-Fil-A for a year!

In college, I camped out with a couple of friends in a Chick-Fil-A parking lot overnight so that I could be one of the first 100!  We each won 52 coupons for free Chick-Fil-A sandwiches or nuggets (once a week for a year)!

As a college student, I was really thankful for the free meal every week!  Surprisingly, I never got tired of eating Chick-Fil-A!

Have you ever camped out overnight for anything (tickets/free food)?
I've only camped out overnight that one time for free Chick-Fil-A.  A lot of my friends used to camp out for college football or basketball tickets - I never cared enough about the games to do that, though!


  1. I'm so jealous that you have a Chic-Fil-A close by :( We don't have any in NY.


  2. i agree with the above comment.. im incredibly envious!! and that salad sounds divine!!!! <3 xoxo

  3. I've never camped out for anything before, but I had friends in college camp out for the xbox 360 back when it came out lol they even skipped class! And then they all just ended up selling them online!! Silly friends of mine

  4. Chick-fil-a is one of my greatest loves in life...

  5. free concert by chickfila?? omg lucky! chickfila is my true love.

  6. I've never camped out for tickets.
    Blueberries are by far my favourite berry, I eat them everyday!

  7. I didn't know that about Chik-fil-a!! No wonder they had promotions on my college campus all the time! haha (I went to a Christian school). I've never tried them since I don't eat meat, but I think it's wonderful that they do so many things for the community.

    And I've actually never camped out for anything before.

  8. Haha I haven't camped out for anything but I totally would if it was something I really wanted!

    <3 waffle fries from Chick-Fil-A!

  9. I have never camped over night for anything, except if I'm out in the woods camping! I love your determination--I'm glad to hear the concert was awesome!

  10. I love Chick-Fil-A. We don't have any up north here in new England (there might be one at a mall food court somewhere). I always look forward to them when we visit family in Georgia. Cool story and facts you shared! love that you won 52 free meals!!!
