Almost a year ago, Emily had a training where they served box lunches from Heavenly Ham. Inside her box was an entry card for an Osacar party prize pack. It included a big screen tv and a party tray from HH. We didn’t think anything of it at first, but decided to enter.
Usually we don’t enter those sort of contests because there are 200 million people entering and someone in some far off place usually wins. Anyhow, this time we did enter. A few weeks later, I got a mysterious email from a HH address. At first, I thought it was spam and nearly deleted the message.
The text in it was typical spam-talk, but they listed a few pieces of information that caught my attention. We were the grand prize winners and they didn’t need our bank account or social security information to award us the prize…it must be real! I responded and emailed back and forth with the company representative. A few days later, we received a generous gift card to Best Buy to choose a big screen tv on which to watch the Oscars with a few friends.
That’s sort of the funny part really…we don’t watch tv much. We haven’t had cable in 14 years. We do get antenna reception but find that there is little on worth watching. To be fair, HH said we could spend the money on anything at BB. Still, it was an Oscar party prize so we decided to go ahead and get a big screen tv and a surround sound system with an upconvert dvd player. We took all sorts of goofy pictures of the buying process including posing with the Geek Squad car, the BB sales guy, picking up the food, etc.
So, we invited family over and watched the Oscars and had a good time. The HH party tray was awesome. If you’ve never had Heavenly Ham, try some…it’s a little pricey but so good. I’d eat there every week if I could! I especially love their ham salad.
We still don’t watch much tv on it, but we love an occasional Netflix and it’s hard to beat the Dukes of Hazzard and Daisy Duke in big screen form! Thanks Heavenly Ham and Best Buy!This entry was posted in Fun, Technology and tagged Fun, Technology by warren
