Default HP Vivienne Tam Wireless Mouse Valentine's Giveaway

<p><img src="" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>Valentine's Day is only a few days away, and if you're the typical guy you probably haven't gotten anything for your wife/girlfriend/significant other. Digital Home Thoughts is here to help! HP has given us three of these very feminine <a href="" target="_blank">Vivienne Tam wireless optical mice</a> to give away. With Valentine's Day being so close, I figured it was time for a giveaway! I won't be able to ship them to the winners in time for the 14th, but you can print out the above photo and tell that special someone that they won one!</p><p>OK, here's the contest: post a reply telling me how your met your wife/girlfriend/significant other. So as not to exclude the single people out there (believe me, I remember what it was like), if you'd like to give this mouse to a close friend, go ahead and tell me how you met them. And hey, you never know what kind of sparks a fashionable mouse might create! The contest will close Friday night, around 10pm (GMT -7), and the three winners (chosen at random from among all posted entries) will each receive one mouse each.</p><p><strong>UPDATE:</strong>Thanks for all the great stories everyone - I enjoyed reading them. And thanks for entering the contest! The three winners are: <em>Dyvim</em>, <em>lynnroth</em>, and <em>srsabu</em>. Each winner has been contacted via private message and they have 7 days to claim their prize. Have a very happy Valentine's Day, one and all!</p>

Default V-Day giveaway

I'll start and tell you how I met my husband. I was divorced with two small boys and my friend kept pushing me to date this "great" guy her husband worked with. I kept fending her off saying I wasn't ready. One night, she invited my sons and I over for dinner. Never one to turn down a meal, I accepted. She didn't tell me but she had invited the "great" guy over, too.

She wasn't lying. He really was great. Handsome and funny and he read a story to one of my sons that night without being asked. Almost too good to be true. I was struck mute and said barely two words that night even though I kept saying to myself "Talk dummy, say SOMETHING". I barely touched my dinner because I was worried I'd either choke to death or spill it all over me, thereby confirming I was an idiot and not worth dating.

As we were leaving for the evening the only thing I could mutter was "Goodnight, it was nice meeting you" then he turned to go to his car. I was brushing the snow off mine and kicking myself for not talking the whole evening, when he came back. He said he wasn't sure if I'd be interested, but would I like to go have dinner with him some night? I almost killed myself getting to my purse to give him my phone number. Darn ice on the driveway.

Fast forward, 17 years later. We're still happily married with four children between us. He really is a great guy although his one flaw is he's a really bad gift giver. Hence, why I'm here attempting to win my own beautiful Valentine's Day gift. I will do the required "oooh" and "aaah" when he hands me that bouquet of flowers all the while wishing it was the peonies that grace the Vivienne Tam mouse.

I would give to my mum. She has always helped me out during the years and have always stood by me. I remember those days when she used to help me with my schoolwork. She is a close a person to me and if I win one of these mouses I would give it to her:-)

Default Programming Competition

I met my wife at a programming competition during college. Along the trip there and back, we got to know each other and quickly fell in love.

I can only assume that I met my wife at church, since we grew up going to the same one and she is older than I am.

Default Met at work

My wife and I met at work. This was before the days of "no pens in the company ink". We dated for 2 years and were married in 1973, giving us 35 years together so far. I think it's going to work out. As I tell others, "31 wonderful years of marriage, which ain't bad out of 35!"

I met her at a church retreat. She was sitting across the room and I thought she was cute so I went and sat by her. By the end of the weekend we had our first date set up. That was over 8 years ago. Time sure goes fast.
