The Great Canadian Blog Bash 2012 - True Cuddles Giveaway!

It's finally here again! Welcome to the Great Canadian Blog Bash!  This is a
Positively Pampered Patty
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 with winners being announced by July 3rd.  I am excited to be giving away a prize package from True Cuddles again this year, one of my favourite websites for Canadian Moms.  Please also check out the host blogs by clicking on the logo to the right for some huge prize packages as you don't want to miss out on a chance to win those as well!

Now, a bit more about me...

I am a Canadian Mommy of two very young kids and I live in Regina, SK. My daughter is two years old and my son will be four in September.  I started this blog when I was on maternity leave although I have been back at work for over a year now and my blogging has slowed down significantly!  I still try to keep up and hope to write more during the summer especially with a trip to Italy coming up!  But enough about that and more about Canada!

I have thought about what to write for this post and decided to use my teaching as a basis.  I teach students from other countries and they have told me why they have come to Canada.  It really makes me appreciate our lives here.  Usually, the first thing they say is that they come here for a better education and more opportunities.  I think they are just trying to suck up to the teacher with that one.  Then, they say it's safe and there is a lot of space so it's not so crowded.  Refugee students are very happy to be here and away from their war torn countries.  They are thankful to live in a peaceful country where they can enjoy rights and freedoms that didn't exist in their own countries.  My students make me realize how lucky we are here in Canada as it truly as an amazing country with beautiful scenery and wonderful diversity.  I love it.

The Giveaway!

True Cuddles has generously 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 "Pirose for Nursing and Fashion" Nursing Cover-up worth $40 as well as an additional $35 worth of "Cuddles" for either a boy or girl.  So I'm not nursing anymore but I'd totally wear one of these scarves as an accessory.. all mommas can make use of these!

  14. As a fellow SK woman, I love camping at some of Saskatchewan's beautiful campgrounds. Rowan's Ravine and Candle Lake are a few we've visited in past years and this year we're going to the campground by Swift Currant; my Mom says it's great there!

  15. I love being at home. We do not vacation a lot and do not camp. We live in the country and have a beautiful yard that we love to spend time on gardening and being with our pets. So I cannot say we even have a Canadian vacation spot.

  18. One of the trips we took a few years ago was to Gaspé. It was so beautiful, one of the best vacations we ever had. Thanks for joining #TGCBB I hope you had the chance to meet some new people and get to know a little more about our great Country.
