The Great Canadian Blog Bash!! (True Cuddles Giveaway)

It's finally here! Welcome to the Great Canadian Blog Bash!  This is a great opportunity for blog readers to discover even more great Canadian mommy bloggers who feature interesting info for moms along with lots of reviews and giveaways. For this event in particular, each blog will have a special post so you can learn more about each blog and at least one giveaway provided by a Canadian company and open to Canadians only.  All giveaways open today and will end on July 1st.  I am excited to be giving away a prize package from True Cuddles, one of my favourite websites for Canadian Moms.

Now, a bit more about me...

I am a Canadian Mommy of two very young kids and I live in Regina, SK. My baby girl is 14 months and my toddler son is 2 years old. He'll be three years old in September. I started this blog when I was on maternity leave although I am back to work for a couple of months right now. Yes, only a couple of months because I am a teacher, and as crazy as it may sound, I am already looking forward to the summer!

What is my blog about? It's about a little bit of everything. Mostly my favourite baby and toddler products which quickly turned into doing lots of great reviews and giveaways. I write about both American and Canadian companies but I make sure that all of my giveaways are open to Canadians. After living overseas for 5 years, I truly appreciate Canada and am fiercely proud of our country. I am also very lucky to be reminded of what a fantastic country we live in everyday as I teach students from other countries. They remind me how lucky we are to live in a country with so many rights, freedoms, and opportunities. 

Aside from baby things, I also write about my Masters classes, running, cooking, baking, raising kiddos, teaching, traveling and pretty much anything that comes up. I started this blog to document our crazy busy lives. The most popular post I've ever written was about Daily Deals Websites..read with caution..you may become addicted.  It can be found under "Most Popular Posts" on the right side bar.

The one other thing I LOVE and must mention since it's truly Canadian is the CFL and the Saskatchewan Roughriders in particular.  Go Riders!!!

The Giveaway!

True Cuddles has offered to give away a prize package worth $75. They actually suggested customizing the prize to the winner which is pretty awesome. They'll give away a Goodbyn lunch kit and add other adorable items from their weekly "Cuddles" (e.g. BabyLegs, teething necklace).

If you really love free stuff for your little one (who doesn't?!), you should also check out the ‘Win Cuddles for a Year’ contest.  True Cuddles is going to give one lucky winner a free Cuddle (aka awesome baby product) per week for an entire year.  You can enter the contest on their website and there are a number of bonus entries available to increase your odds of winning.

Here's a photo of the Goodbyn lunch kits...just imagine these kits full of even more goodies totalling up to $75.

 










How to Enter: 
Same rules as always!  I'll count each comment as an entry and select a winner from www.random.org.
