Happy Valentine’s Day!
If you’re a longtime reader of CNC, you might remember my Valentine’s Day Scavenger Hunt from previous years. It’s always a big hit with you guys, so I’m bringing it back once again this year!
This year’s prize is a $100 gift card to Minted, which can be used on any of their products from seasonal gifts and stationary to business cards, art prints, and much more!
Minted and I recently teamed up to create Valentine’s Day cards for Murphy and me to give to our senior friends that we meet during our therapy dog visits.
Last Wednesday, Murphy and I went to the senior home with our Valentine’s Day cards in hand.
We were both super excited about giving them out, but, unfortunately, things didn’t go as planned.
When we arrived at the senior home, I stopped by the Activities Coordinator’s office to say hello and give her a Valentine’s Day card. As soon as Ann saw us, she apologized for not contacting me sooner about the recent flu outbreak at the senior home. She told me everyone has been so sick lately, the facility decided to turn away volunteers for the next week or so. Whomp whomp. Her telling me this actually made me want to bring Murphy around even more just so we could cheer up some people, but I knew missing our visit was probably the best option, especially being pregnant and all.
Ann offered to give out our Valentine’s Day cards in time for the holiday, so I took her up on her offer. Our big Valentine’s Day surprise sort of bombed, but I still think our cards will make a lot of people happy. I mean, Murphy’s pug face sure is adorable!
If you would like to participate in this year’s scavenger hunt, here’s how it is played:
1. Search through old Carrots ”˜N’ Cake posts to find each of the following:
- A funny photo of Murphy
- A photo of me doing CrossFit
- A photo of Marylou’s iced coffee
- A cookie recipe
- A recipe that you’d like to try
2. Once you find all five posts, copy and paste the links into an email and send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday (2/17) at 9:00 AM (EST).
3. On Monday morning, I will randomly pick one winner to receive the $100 gift card to Minted!
Happy hunting! Have fun!
