Bloggy Giveaway Time Again!

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my Disclosure statement for more details.

It’s fun times when the Bloggy GiveAway Carnival comes to town. It means I will spend half my time surfing to blogs and trying to win obscure books, fun toys, and generally get to see how much better everyone else’s blog is compared to mine!

I couldn’t think of anything really exciting to get rid of–as sure as I am you really loved the idea of getting a Bible study that MY NAME IS IN like last time, I thought maybe just a good old gift card would be a better choice.

So for the winner I have a $10 Cheesecake Factory gift card. I have had it since Christmas and don’t really intend to use it anytime soon. I’ve had some bad experiences at the CF here in town but hopefully yours is better. You can use it to get take-out cheesecake at the least, which is of course divine. They even have low-carb if you’re on one of those diets (which I usually am when there isn’t another whole person craving sugar in my womb).

All you have to do is post a comment on this posts to get a chance to win–and make sure you enter a valid e-mail address so I can find you. I will pick a winner at random on Sunday, April 27th, sometime in the evening after I get back from my weekend trip to Ohio.

Disclaimer: I have only been to our CF with big groups of people, and I thought the way they handled big groups was ridiculous and completely insane. That said, the food was really good still and maybe the situation would be different in a smaller group.

And if you’re visiting my blog for the first time, welcome!! I’m a little insane, but if you can ignore that I hope you’ll enjoy reading some of my older posts. For a true glimpse into my life you might want to check out these posts:

  1. My husband LOVES Cheesecake Factory’s Ceasar Salad. I know he’s love to have this. I also LOVE the cheese cake (but my hips sure don’t! ha ha).

  2. There is one right by my office, and I would love to go and eat some yummy cheesecake instead of a healthy salad for lunch!

  3. I could use this right now. I am hostessing a baby shower on Sunday and having cheesecake rather than cake. We love Cheesecake Factory.

  4. Well, girlfriend, that’s one way to get people to leave comments on your blog!


    P.S. Sorry I had to leave this under anon. Can’t seem to get the google id thing to work today!

  5. Wow, is this for real?! I love the Cheesecake Factory-I’m addicted to their cheesecake!

  6. I love the Cheesecake Factory and have only ever had the best experiences there. They have these devine avocado eggrolls. Yum!

  7. Fortunately for us, our CF is still good! The only thin tha ticks me off is that they took that mountain of onion tangles off their menu. Sad, very sad.

  8. The one and only time I have ever been to CF, I ate so much lunch that I didn’t have room to eat dessert, so we never ordered any. Can you believe it? We just had a new CF open up a few miles from our home and we would love to give it a try. I would love to be entered in your giveaway.

  12. I have not been to the Cheesecake factory and have been wanting to try it out. They build one here about a year ago and there is always a 2 hour wait. Would love the GC.

  20. I’ve never been to the CF but I LOVE cheesecake!!! We have on here in town but we’ve only been in town two years.

  21. I consider myself a cheesecake connoisseur & the cheesecake factory is definitely on the top of the list!

    (did you see? I’ve got something just for preggo mamas on my blog!! i’m hopoing you play!)

  24. Lucky I have a good CF nearby. At least for another few months. it looks like they will be pulling out. I will get the regular plain cheescake OK maybe the one with BIG strawberries on top.
    I wonder when they are open. Now?

    Be back after i get a slice. Thank you. Oh, I am being rude. What do you want me to get you???

  25. I live about 40 minutes away from one, it sounds like a fun reason to go and visit with a friend!


  26. I agree with you about CF and they sloppy way they handle large crowds. But, I’d still like to be entered, and I promise I’ll go with no more than two if I win!

    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  36. I’ve only gone with my husband and two sons, but I love them! Not that I need cheesecake, but it is my favorite! Even better than chocolate!

  37. I love Cheesecake Factory. I ate there when I was a few months pregnant and afterwords I thought I was going to burst! I usually only eat half my meal when we go out to eat, but I ate the whole thing that trip. Not to mention the plate was HUGE! Not sure why I ate so much, but I waddled the rest of the day and thought I was going to go into a food coma or something.

  38. I have not been there yet! I love cheesecake!! This would be a nice date night for me and hubby! Thanks! cookiecutter72 AT hotmail dot com

  39. I love the Cheesecake factory. But you’re totally right about how they handle big groups. They asked us to sit at different tables. Crazy.

  40. I don’t know if we have a CF around, but I would love to win this for Crystal over at MoneySavingMom – she wrote about enjoying it and deserves the reward.

  41. I’ve never been to Cheesecake Factory, just had one bite of some of their cheesecake a family had as leftovers and it was yummy, so I’d love to try it!

  42. I’ve never eaten at CF but it’s right by my house…and I’ve been wanting to try it but we’re trying to save money…so this is great! Thanks for the chance to win this! =)

  46. The closest cheescake factory is a bit of a hike but its the only place to get really really good sugar free cheesecake.. and my dad is a diabetic.. so I want to take him there for father’s day πŸ™‚

    I am running my own bloggy carnival over at Seven Dogs and a Baby in honor of Connor’s first birthday. There is over $530 in prizes! Go check it out!

  47. I love cheesecake factory… enter me for a chance to win.

    Thanks for the opportunity,

  49. What a wonderful giveaway you are doing!

    Have fun this week with you giveaway. Don’t forget to come on over to my blog and sign up for my giveaway!

  50. Please enter me into your giveaway. I’d give just about anything to have a slice of Adam’s Peanut butter Cup Fudge Ripple Cheesecake. I just cannot justify spending that amount out of my own money. But if I had a gift card, oooh I’d be in heaven!

  51. Well, one person’s “trash” is another person’s treasure, yes? So lots of us think this is a great giveaway. Cheesecake is my top choice of dessert. Sadly, I have not yet had cheesecake from CF, but hopefully, that is about to change. LOL.

    Thanks for the chance to win.

  52. I would love to win your generous prize! Thanks for your contribution!
    I love cheesecake…but not great for me since I am on WW…I see you are too??

  53. I have only been to CF twice (it is a little out of my budget) but I am sure I could a yummy slice of heaven with the gift card!! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  54. I love Sheesecake Factory. They are always busy, but I usually just go with my husband. Smaller parties are probably easier to handle. It shouldn’t matter though. You shoudl still get the same service regardless of party size.
