ProFlowers $70 gift certificate winners


Posted by Andru Edwards - Categories: Announcements, Features


Our ProFlowers gift certificates giveaway has come to a close, and we wanted to quickly announce the winners. If you recall, all you had to do to enter was leave your best or worst Valentine’s Day memory on our forum, and we chose five winners randomly:

mynenni talked about her blind date disaster:

My worst was a blind date that a friend set me up on.  It was horrible; well not to start with.  He came to door with a big bouqet of flowers.  We then spent the day at Magic Mountian where we quickly ran out of things to talk about and I learned he was a major wimp when it came to rides (really?  then why did you bring me here?)

Afterward, we stopped at a classy resteraunt for dinner.  I took my napkin and layed it across my lap…he took his napkin and layed it across the table.  It was torture sitting across from him trying to come up with conversation as he ate with his mouth open.  I have to figure that by this point he was trying to just be over the top horrible (I think we both knew it was not going past the first date); then at the end of the meal he put his face on the table (okay it was on the napkin he layed out earlier) and moved his head across to wipe his mouth.  NO HANDS!!!

At least he didn’t make me pay…

adamb0mb posted this memory:

All she wanted was to go see the UW vs WSU basketball game on Feb 14th.  I picked her up from work, went to a bar to meet up with some friends for drinks and shots.  Then she snuck in 6 airplane bottles of booze… and we drank at the game.  I don’t even remember who won, but we had a hell of a time!

auntiethesis recalled a dinner date:

My best memory is last year’s Valentine’s Day. My husband took me to a great restaurant and I totally blew my diet eating steak and mashed potatoes. It was the first time I’d ever had Creme Brulee, too. While we were eating, he surprised me with a tennis bracelet that I’d wanted forever.  It was a far cry from his usual Applebee’s dinner and a box of Stover chocolates.

Long-time reader gohan_bcc1 brought it back to high school:

My one and only valentine memory was getting to school in grade 12 and finding a really awesome gift in my locker. In my locker was a car model of my dream car (Audi R8) with a customized license plate to match my current license plate. It identical to my license including the plate # and the province and design. It was also an inside joke that the one we saw in the parking lot two months back was mine. It was really cool to see. Not only that but there was a note for me to go to the library and look on page 82 of the book of the last movie we saw. Which was actually Harry Potter: Order of the Phoenix. Inside this book was a note saying this entitles me to receive a package being held at the office. I go to the office and get this package. Inside was a bunch of hockey cards each with a letter written on it. All of these cards were of my favourite team the Calgary Flames of course. There was a hint written on the inside of the package that said to spell out a date. So after hours of figuring this out it spelt out Tuesday March 6th 8:00pm. After seeing the date i realized it was the date of a hockey game for the Calgary Flames. I then got a text saying to go back to my locker. And sitting in my locker were two tickets to the game on that date at that time. Best gift ever!

sandyu‘s was short and sweet:

The best when my husband got out of the military, he was injured but he was alive and home.

My best memory of Valentines day was getting my first card from someone I really liked…it had those candy hearts in it..

My best memory is last year’s Valentine’s Day. My husband took me to a great restaurant and I totally blew my diet eating steak and mashed potatoes.

My best valentines day memory was back when I was in college. me and some friends (male and female singles) dressed in black and fake-kidnapped some of our other friends to all go out to a group valentines dinner. In retrospect, we could hhave probably gotten into a lot of troule for abducting people into the back of a van in the middle of the street, but a good time was had by all.

I seem to be particularly cursed when it comes to V-day… most of them have been pretty bad romance-wise, and yet it’s my favorite holiday. After one year when my boyfriend cheated on me just before the Big Day, I decided to own the holiday in my own special way… each year after that, I dressed up as cupid. smile I wore boxers and red tights and glittery red heart headbands and went around tossing heart confetti at people.

I remember waiting at the top of the stairs in college to drop a shower of red confetti on a friend. Those little red hearts never go away, no matter how many times you vaccuum, I swear! I think some of it is still on my rug, three moves later!

I’m single again this year, but it could just be my best one yet because I’ll be spending it with my awesome daughter… and maybe she’ll be cupid with me. smile

My best Valentines Days was last year. I was given clues about my gift for weeks (He can’t really keep secrets). My favorite band is Led Zeppelin, so he got me tickets to the Paramount to watch a Led Zeppelin tribute band. The show was really great and probably the closet thing I will get to seeing them live. :(

So last year on valentines day I took my girlfriend out to a a very nice, expensive restaurant in downtown D.C. Dinner was delicious (as it should have been considering the cost). Anyway so the waitress brings me the check and I hand her my check card. She comes back later and tells me that my card was declined! I didn’t have enough money on my check card. Luckily my girlfriend had her card with her otherwise I don’t know what would have happened… Regardless it turned out to be a great valentines day.

Best v-day ever…

All she wanted was to go see the UW vs WSU basketball game on Feb 14th.  I picked her up from work, went to a bar to meet up with some friends for drinks and shots.  Then she snuck in 6 airplane bottles of booze… and we drank at the game.  I don’t even remember who won, but we had a hell of a time!
