Use Degree. Don't Sweat the World Cup!  

On our vacation, last August, we didn't visit 1 soccer stadium. Oh, no. We went to 3!

We saw Manchester United and Stoke City play at their home fields. We also took a side trip to tour Anfield, the great home of Liverpool FC. We don't get to England very often anymore, so my husband squeezed in as much soccer as he could into a two week period. We even visited the grassy field where my husband played football with his childhood friends.

Yes, we're BIG into soccer! My family has been looking forward to the FIFA World Cup for a long time, and we've had a lot of fun watching it with friends over the past couple of weeks.

The U.S. men's soccer team put up a great fight against Belgium! Even though they didn't win, they proved that they were a force to be reckoned with. It was very impressive!

This summer Degree Men and Walgreens have been cheering on the U.S. team as well. Did you know that Degree is the Official Deodorant of U.S. Soccer? Degree wants to reward fans who Do:More with a great offer.  Hurry and get to Walgreens today or tomorrow (7/4 or 7/5) and receive 1,000 Balance Rewards points when you buy 2 Degree Men Deodorant products.

Move more, play more and Do:More this summer with Degree!

Dress Like a Cow Day at Chick-fil-A #CowAppreciationDay 2014

If you live near a Chick-fil-A restaurant, it's time to mark your calendar for Cow Appreciation Day! Yes, on July 11, 2014, you can get FREE food for wearing cow attire.

If you're not familiar with Cow Appreciation Day, take a look at this video to learn more:

On this special day, Chick-fil-A is giving a FREE meal to any customer who comes to the restaurant fully dressed as a cow.  If you're not quite ready to get completely decked out in cow gear, you can opt to wear "partial cow attire" for one free Entrée (like a chicken sandwich)

My sons and I have celebrated #CowAppreciationDay in the past, and we've always had a good time with it.  I'm not courageous enough to dress from head to hoof, but there are plenty of adults that stroll into the restaurant in full cow attire. 

Do you plan on celebrating Cow Appreciation Day this year?  Get the scoop on Cow Appreciation Day on the Chick-fil-A website, where you can read the F.A.Q's, check out the photo gallery and even buy cow merchandise.
