I am so excited to announce that I have been selected for the 2017-2018 Chick-fil-A Moms Panel!
Anyone who knows me, knows that I have a crazy obsession with Chick-fil-A. We can be found eating there multiple times a week, and not JUST because it’s the only air conditioned play place in town, but because my family genuinely loves the great food and friendly atmosphere. I’m incredibly excited to be part of this year’s panel! Here’s the answers to a few questions I’ve been asked recently.
What’s the Chick-fil-A Moms Panel?
The Chick-fil-A Moms Panel is a corporate initiative which works to bring influential moms firsthand Chick-fil-A news and announcements, gather feedback on future programs, such as Kid’s Meal prizes, provide exclusive opportunities and provide a few fun gifts along the way.
How Did You Get Selected?
A few months ago, a link to apply circulated around a few blogger groups I am part of on Facebook. The link led to a survey from BSM Media and asked questions regarding social media accounts and follower count as well as how frequently I visited my local Chick-fil-A. I am not sure how many applications were received, but there were close to 1,000 moms selected to be part of this year’s Chick-fil-A Moms Panel.

Where Did You Get That Shirt?
I wore this shirt to Walt Disney World recently and had SO many comments! A lady even asked to take a picture of it. I actually made it myself using my Cricut Machine. I’m sharing an easy to follow tutorial AND my cut file below!
How to Make Your Own Shirt
First and foremost, you will need a Cricut Machine. If you haven’t heard of this before, prepare to have your world changed! This machine will definitely take your craft projects to the next level. Download the cut file here. Go to www.cricut.com/design and upload the png file. Insert it into the design space. Click ‘Make it’. Then be sure to check the box to mirror the image.
Next, load Glitter Vinyl in the color of your choice onto the cutting mat. The glossy plastic side should be face down. Turn the dial to the correct position, I usually go one up from the standard ‘Iron On Vinyl’ setting. When the ‘C’ button starts flashing, press it and then watch the Cricut work it’s magic.
Once the vinyl is cut, it’s time to weed the vinyl which basically means to remove the parts that you don’t want to iron on. The Cricut tools come in handy to make this easier! Once complete, place the plastic sheet onto your shirt and iron it on. A standard iron will work fine, though this Heat Press from Cricut is much easier!
Tips for Best Results
- Wash, dry and iron the shirt FIRST
- Fold the shirt in half vertically and iron to create a nice crease. This gives you a perfect line of symmetry to line up the iron on in the center of the shirt
- Place a metal cookie sheet inside the shirt. This makes both sides of the shirt heat up and produces a better hold
- Use the hottest iron setting with no steam
- Press firmly and iron longer than you think needed (the last thing you want is the iron on peeling off)
- Wait for the shirt to cool prior to peeling off the plastic sheet
- Wash on delicate, inside out and hang dry to preserve the look longer

Chick-fil-A goes perfectly with trips to Disney! We stop at the exit RIGHT before Disney World on almost every trip to fill our bellies with Chick-fil-A before heading to the parks. See more of our Disney adventures! Are you a fellow Chick-fil-A lover? Tell me in the comments below!
