1-800-Flowers Valentine’s Day Giveaway Winner

Greetings, readers. I’ve been busy this week configuring a new web server. That’s why I have not been around or posted anything other than this announcement. My current server can’t handle the traffic spikes on my dad blog. I will be moving my site over to the new server in a week or two. Right before I do that, I will have to temporarily disable commenting. Sorry about that. I hope to do it on a weekend, but not this weekend. Anyhow, today I’m announcing the winner of the 1-800-Flowers.com Giveaway. BTW, there are a couple contests on my review and giveaway blog that you still can enter:

Bowl Us Over Contest – Win a $500 Gift Card, Aroma Rice Cooker

When I was a kid, I hated rice. We ate rice every single day (it’s the curse of being Chinese). Rice for dinner. Rice for lunch. I don’t remember what we ate for breakfast, but it wouldn’t surprise me if we had rice for breakfast too. After 18 years of eating rice every day, I stopped eating rice when I went to college. However, by the time I graduated from college I not only missed rice, but I also realized I actually like rice (just not every day). Freshly made steamed white rice tastes good with just about everything. And dads and moms can easily make a rice bowl by adding ingredients like diced carrots, peas, scrambled eggs, beef, chicken, and shrimp.

Marshalls Mother’s Day Giveaway

On the same trip to TJ Maxx last Saturday, I also went into a Marshalls for the first time. Like TJ Maxx, Marshalls (Twitter | Facebook) is an off-price retailer.

TJ Maxx Mother’s Day Giveaway

I took a quick trip to TJ Maxx last Saturday. In my opinion, TJ Maxx (Twitter | Facebook) is a great store for a frugal dad like me. The store is full of sweet deals. For instance, I saw a cool looking iPod speaker system for $17 (regular price: $30) and a nice looking lamp for $50 (regular price: $100). I think TJ Maxx is a wonderful place for frugal dads to shop for a Mother’s Day present. Thanks to TJ Maxx, I’m giving away a $25 gift card on my dad blog. Gift cards are great for the moms who has everything.
