Rainy Day **GIVEAWAY**

January 19, 2010 at 12:52 pm 79 comments

In the lip synced words of Milli Vanilli, I blame it on the rain.

This week California is suppose to get it’s quarter of a century record breaking rain.  From 5-20 inches!  Grreeeeaattt… I’m hoping my area is more towards the 5 inches spectrum rather than the 20 inches.  But CB we could really use the rain. Ok that’s true. But you gotta understand something.  I’m Asian.  We already have a terrible reputation for being bad drivers.  (I will neither confirm or deny the rumor per my lawyer’s instructions.) Add in the rain and that’s 2 strikes against us!

You were probably coming to my blog to read about some fabulous Tuesdays With Dorie dessert-ness but it’s cold, dreary, rainy and wet in my neck of the woods. All of which put me to sleep rather than give me a get-up-and-bake mentality. But check out Lillian of Confectiona’s Realm for the Almost Candy Bar recipe >> here.

Instead I decided to embrace the rain. Thank goodness for shop-a-holic friends, Target and text messages. For the last hour I’ve been looking at buying some rain boots after my friend sent me a text about buying some pink polka dot rain boots from Target. So of course I got the want-them-don’t-really-need-them twitch. But not fugly yellow ones that fishermen wear. Cutesy ones. Ones that make me forget the cold, dreary, rainy wet (Did I mention those adjectives already?) outside.

Do you want some rain boots too? Well today’s your LUCKY day!

(1) Only one entry per person please.
(2) Only those who live within the US eligible to win prizes. (Sorry my international peeps!)
(3) Please make sure you have a valid email address so I can contact you if you win.

To enter leave a comment:
I posted some of my favorites from Target’s website. Which rain boots should I buy?

    oh!! Definitely the ones with citrus. How sweet are they!!!

  • 2. Margaret  |  January 19, 2010 at 12:58 pm

    And I RT’d the give away.

  • 3. Ashley  |  January 19, 2010 at 12:58 pm

    I like the ones with red and blue flowers


  • 4. Nikki  |  January 19, 2010 at 1:12 pm

    Ok so as much as I love all the boots you picked out, I’m not in LOVE with any of them. Like the red and blue ones … so you, but way too crazy flowery which just does not say CB to me.

    So … I started looking elsewhere. I started at zappos and was going to post the ones I found but really, blech I didn’t like any of them. Then I moved along to shoes.com and found the cutest freaking pair of rain boots ever … are you ready for this? You sure? Ehh I don’t think I’m going to show them to you yet. Maybe later :P

  • 5. Natalie  |  January 19, 2010 at 1:16 pm

    Oh yay!! I am going to Seattle in March and totally need galoshes!

    I’m torn – I love the bird ones. And the red and blue flower ones.

  • 6. Meghan  |  January 19, 2010 at 1:20 pm

    I really like the pink plaid ones and the ones with brightly colored squares :)

  • 7. Nina  |  January 19, 2010 at 1:21 pm

    I love the black and white flowers pair. They’d match anything! I have similar b/w polka dot ones.

  • 8. Maggie  |  January 19, 2010 at 1:27 pm

    Thanks for the fun giveaway. I vote the citrus or blue flowers.

  • 9. sabriena  |  January 19, 2010 at 1:37 pm

    I have to go with the pink and brown polka dot rain boots..those are adorable!

  • 10. Nikki  |  January 19, 2010 at 1:38 pm

    Drum Roll Please …..



  • 11. sabriena  |  January 19, 2010 at 1:38 pm

    Here’s my tweet of it too: http://twitter.com/sabriena/status/7960523071 :D

  • 12. Suzy Q  |  January 19, 2010 at 1:45 pm

    The citrus ones are the closest to baking AND will give your mood a boost in the rain!

  • 13. Christine  |  January 19, 2010 at 1:47 pm

    I would buy the pink/brown polka dots b/c I have this thing for pink and brown. But for you, I’d pick the red and blue flowers… those will match ginger spice the best… not that you’d wear rain boots in the kitchen… i’m just saying…

  • 14. Christine  |  January 19, 2010 at 1:50 pm

    Just RT’d – @ceeesbee! Thanks for the giveaway!

  • 15. Lorena  |  January 19, 2010 at 2:00 pm

    I like the bird ones. No reason. Just randomly appealing.

    Choice #2 (for me) would be the blue flowered ones in the bottom left, but I somehow cannot see you wearing them. You seem more a red/hot pink sorta girl. So …

    Choice #2 (for you) would be the pink plaid ones, middle right.

  • 16. Beth  |  January 19, 2010 at 2:08 pm

    You should get the citrus ones! Everyone needs something sunshiney and colorful on rainy days. :-)

  • 17. Holly  |  January 19, 2010 at 2:36 pm

    I like the brown ones with pink poka dots! Super cute!
    I also like the plaid ones!

  • 18. Lorena  |  January 19, 2010 at 3:40 pm

    Oh! you just have to pick the gray/blue ones with the little red bird!!! How cute are those!


  • 19. mrssoup  |  January 19, 2010 at 3:40 pm

    The pink plaid is ADORABLE!

  • 20. Jingle  |  January 19, 2010 at 4:22 pm

    Okay, I’m torn between two pairs – I LOVE the blue/white ones with the brightly colored crosshatch, but I also totally Love the grey ones with the bird on them!!! They are happy boots!!!!

  • 21. Joanna  |  January 19, 2010 at 4:43 pm

    Birdie ones!!

  • 22. Erin  |  January 19, 2010 at 5:38 pm

    I like the citrus ones, and the ones NEXT TO the brown/pink polka dot ones.

  • 23. mrsdanigirl8  |  January 19, 2010 at 5:52 pm

    It’s a toss-up between the polka dots and the plaid. But if I had to choose I’d go with the plaid! Let us know what you decide :)

  • 24. Tracey  |  January 19, 2010 at 6:15 pm

    Fun giveaway! I’ve been wanting cute rain boots forever!

    I like either the citrus ones or the red ones with the flowers on the top row. They’re both really cute :)

  • 25. Tracey  |  January 19, 2010 at 6:19 pm

    I tweeted about your giveaway too!

  • 26. Mireya  |  January 19, 2010 at 6:56 pm

    I like the Zaney Polka Dot Rain Boots in Pink!

  • 27. Cheryl in AL  |  January 19, 2010 at 7:18 pm

    I love the Blue Floral. They are so cute.

  • 28. Reneé  |  January 19, 2010 at 7:22 pm

    Love love love the rainbow-ish plaid ones!

  • 29. Alanna  |  January 19, 2010 at 7:41 pm

    For you (and probably for me too!) I would choose the ones with the red trim and the flowers. Too cute!

  • 30. Alanna  |  January 19, 2010 at 7:42 pm

    I tweeted! http://twitter.com/alannanoelle/status/7973082797

  • 31. elly  |  January 19, 2010 at 8:03 pm

    I need rainboots SO badly! They are all so cute, but I’d have to go with the pink and brown polka dots.

  • 32. Rhiannon  |  January 19, 2010 at 8:50 pm

    I LOVE rain boots and am desperate for a pair to sport around campus on rainy days! The citrus ones are really fun but my vote goes to the pink plaid ones! They are super cute!

  • 33. Carol Peterman  |  January 19, 2010 at 9:50 pm

    Go for the red ones with flowers! I hope you get around to making the oatmeal chocolate almost-candy bars, they’re really good.

  • 34. Diane {createdbydiane.blogspot.com}  |  January 19, 2010 at 11:06 pm

    the brown with pink polkadots are so cute! Get those.

  • 35. Elizabeth - Cake or Death  |  January 20, 2010 at 12:00 am

    I was just up in San Francisco and I swear the whole city is filled with girls in adorable rain boots and I was coveting them! Your giveaway came by in the nick of time. I think you should get the colorful plaid ones in the second row.

  • 36. Elizabeth - Cake or Death  |  January 20, 2010 at 12:02 am

    I love the last paid the black/white flowers, so cute!

  • 38. Regina  |  January 20, 2010 at 5:55 am

    Red Bird is my favorite.

  • 39. Tiffany  |  January 20, 2010 at 6:15 am

    The orange slice ones are cute (#1). I like all of them really. How fun for the dreary rain.

  • 40. Kristin @ Iowa Girl Eats  |  January 20, 2010 at 6:33 am

    I am in DIRE need of some rainboots, too! I was going to pick up my first pair this Spring, but wouldn’t have to if I won these babies!

    I am oohing and aahing over the brown with pink polka dots – too cute!!

  • 41. megan  |  January 20, 2010 at 7:06 am

    I love the blue ones at the bottom. Too cute!!!

  • 42. stephchows  |  January 20, 2010 at 7:22 am

    The grey with the little birdy all the way!!! WOW that is a LOT of rain :( sorry girl!

  • 43. food librarian  |  January 20, 2010 at 10:56 am

    You are so sweet. I have some duck shoes from 20 years ago…geez, I’m old. they were from my undergrad days at UCLA! :)

  • 44. Meg  |  January 20, 2010 at 11:41 am

    I say you go with the lemon ones. The are so bright and cheery, it makes me think of margaritas…what could be batter on a rainy day?!?

  • 45. Toyisland  |  January 20, 2010 at 1:21 pm

    I’m going to have to say the grey/black ones with the red bird… who doesn’t love a glimmer of joy peeking out of the darkness on a rainy day :)

  • 46. Heather E  |  January 20, 2010 at 1:41 pm

    I really like the ones with the little red birdie! Subtle (which we may or may not be going for when wearing shiny, rubber rainboats…), but adorable!

  • 47. Julie  |  January 20, 2010 at 1:41 pm

    Cute rainboots, and great idea for a giveaway!

    I think I’d go for the black and white daisies, but that’s because they would go with pretty much anything.

    The blue hibiscus ones are cute too though!

  • 48. Heather E  |  January 20, 2010 at 1:48 pm

    I also tweeted about the giveaway here:


  • 49. Suzy  |  January 21, 2010 at 5:58 am

    that’s a toughie…I see you very clearly in either the one with the orange slices, but I’m leaning towards the blue hibiscus (wild guess at the flower) ones. I’d flip a coin…go oranges for heads, hibiscus for tails. :)

  • 50. Katrina  |  January 21, 2010 at 6:56 am

    Get the plaid ones! I have the citrus ones, and I get so many compliments on rainyd ays.

  • 51. Lauren  |  January 21, 2010 at 8:03 am

    Oh, the pink polka dots for sure. LOVE THEM!!

  • 52. Jeanne  |  January 21, 2010 at 9:47 am

    I’m in southern California too, and I could definitely use some rain boots! These are all so cute, but if I had to choose one pair it would be the pink plaid. Although the citrus ones would definitely brighten up your day!

  • 53. Jennifer  |  January 21, 2010 at 3:51 pm

    Ooh, I love the gray rainy day boots with the red bird … so cute!

  • 54. Savannah  |  January 21, 2010 at 3:52 pm

    I love the birdy ones, and the citrus ones too..but that might be because of my love for citrus. . .I could never wear the cirtus ones though, people would think I’m some kind of lemon freak…(I have a lemon tattoo, lol)

  • 55. mindy  |  January 21, 2010 at 5:14 pm

    i like the one with the daisies thanks

  • 56. Tania  |  January 21, 2010 at 5:20 pm

    THE blue ones with the white flowers, are so pretty!

    Stay safe and dry!

    I dont know if Im past the deadline or not. but I like the gray/black ones with the red bird. I love gray and black, and you would probably do better in something more colorful. ;)

  • 78. Sandra K321  |  January 23, 2010 at 8:24 pm

    I like the ones with orange, lime, and lemon slices.
